Ask Your Doctor
Our doctors are our most trusted source of information when it comes to our health. Unfortunately, when it comes to vaccinations they don’t know what they aren’t taught. Most doctors including pediatricians are not taught about vaccines other than what the schedule is, how to follow it, and how to coerce parents into accepting vaccinations. They are not trained to understand the risks, or identify adverse reactions besides relatively common events like soreness, fever, swelling, or anaphylaxis.
In order for you to have informed consent, the Doctor must be able to answer some very basic questions about the drug they are administering so we urge you to ask each health profressional who offers you or your children vaccinations.
Questions for the Expert:
- Name 5 vaccine ingredients.
- Name 5 possible adverse reactions.
- Are doctors or vaccine manufactured able to be held liable if you or your child suffer an adverse reactions.
- How many doses are currently administered to children from birth to 18?
- Is it true that you have to be vaccinated to attend public school?
- What is the name of the reporting system for adverse events?
- How much has been paid to vaccine injured families (in the US) and who pays them?
- Which vaccines shed, and for how long and what does shedding mean?
- Is there mercury still in vaccines?
- Do you offer single doses of measles, mumps, rubella, tetanus, pertussis or diptheria?
- Have there been any studies on the safety and effectiveness of cocktail vaccines or the current vaccine schedule?
Answers for the Informed:
- Vaccine ingredients are covered in detail here on InformedConsent.ca.
- Fever, uncontrollable crying, anaphylaxis shock, syncope (fainting), swelling, seizures, Guillain-Barré Syndrome, and death are a few of the many side effects. The complete list can be found in each products monograph (insert).
- In both Canada and the United States, doctors and manufactures are exempt from legal liability resulting from permanent injury and death resulting from vaccination. Learn more about liability.
- Depending on the Province, it ranges between 50 and 60 antigen doses, and roughly 70 in the US.
- You do not need to be vaccinated to attend public school.
- The Canadian Adverse Events Following Immunization Surveillance System (CAEFISS), or Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) in the US.
- Canada is one of only two countries (and Russia) of the G20 which does not have a vaccine injury compensation program. In the United States alone, more than $4.3 billion dollars have been paid to victims of vaccine injury including “autism-like symptoms” as well as death.
- Live virus vaccines can shed, this used to include the live polio vaccine, but today mainly includes Varicella (chickenpox) and live flu vaccines.
- Yes, mercury is still present in “trace amounts” in most vaccines that it was removed from. It is also still a primary ingredient in all multi-dose vaccines like flu shots.
- No. There are no single dose vaccines available.
- No. In fact, this question was asked at the 2019, World Health Organization Global Vaccine Safety Summit and the response was that more comprehensive data sets were needed in order to tease out that level of risk. Some will point to a 2010 study by the Academy of Pediatrics: On-Time Vaccine Receipt In The First Year Does Not Adversely Affect Neurophsychological Outcomes which concluded:
“Timely vaccination during infancy has no adverse effect on neuropsychological outcomes 7 to 10 years later. These data may reassure parents who are concerned that children receive too many vaccines too soon.”
This study includes only 1,047 children born between 1993-1997 when the vaccination schedule was less than half of what it is today. It relies on data from the Vaccine Safety Datalink (VSD), which in turn parly relies on data from the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) which according to a study by US. Dept. Of Health and Human Services catches just 1% of adverse events. This is not a randomized, or controlled trial and it relies on data from woefully inadequate reporting systems.
“Because undervaccinated children in the United States have higher rates of some vaccine-preventable disease than vaccinated children, randomized, controlled trials designed to assess the safety of recommended versus alternative immunization schedules cannot be conducted on ethical grounds; however, the National Vaccine Advisory Committee Vaccine Safety Working Group has suggested that retrospective observational studies of populations with natural variation in vaccination schedules may provide useful information on this issue.”
Isn’t it interesting that they refuse to look at total health outcomes of fully vaccinated versus fully unvaccinated children? They cite concerns of ‘morality’ for arguing against it, but parents of millions of children have intentionally chosen not to vaccinate which completely negates any argument of morality, and thus why wouldn’t they just compare the two groups?
