Thirteen percent of parents are now using an alternative vaccination schedule, and two percent decline all vaccines for their children. Still, 28 percent of parents following the youth vaccination schedule believe it would be much safer to delay making use of vaccines.
Kids Given Vaccines Have 22 Times the Rate of Ear Infections
In German children, 11 percent of those vaccinated reported having ear infections, compared to less than 0.5 percent of unvaccinated children. Similarly, sinusitis was reported in over 32 percent of immunized children, while the prevalence in unvaccinated children was less than one percent.
There are necessary, basic differences in between naturally-acquired immunity and temporary vaccine-induced antibody production. As a parent, you have to inform yourself on each individual disease and corresponding vaccine in order to make a notified choice about the risks and benefits of the options you make.
An important vaccine safety evaluation was provided by the Institute of Medicine (IOM) in August. According to this evaluation of over 1,000 independent studies on vaccines, they were not able to identify whether or not vaccines are a causative consider over 100 serious adverse health outcomes. In short: the research offered is inadequate and can not be used to confirm nor reject causation for lots of poor health results and vaccinations.
By Dr. Mercola
Barbara Loe Fisher, co-founder and president of the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC), sums up among the most essential clinical evaluations on vaccines that was simply released in August.
Barbara has been a pioneer for the last 30 years in vaccine safety and notified approval, and this discussion is of severe importance to everybody, consisting of pediatricians and physicians.
What You Must Know About the Latest Vaccine Safety Review by IOM
The report was released by the Institute of Medicine (IOM), which becomes part of the National Academy of Sciences.
They’ve been around for over 100 years. The institute analyzes health policies and concerns advice to the US government.
They’re moneyed not simply by the federal government but likewise by pharmaceutical business and independent philanthropic companies and individuals.
They are thought about an extremely prominent clinical body worldwide.
In the last three years, the IOM has evaluated vaccine safety a number of times.
Their first reports came out in 1991 and 1994.
Nevertheless, the latest report on this issue, released in August 2011 is really considerable, and many still do not comprehend its true significance.
Over a period of three years, they reviewed over 1,000 research studies on vaccines. Surprisingly, they left out research studies funded by the pharmaceutical market, although some of the studies were funded by government agencies separately.
The review concentrated on eight vaccines:
- Hepatitis A-hepatitis B.
- Measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine.
- Meningococcal vaccine.
- Pneumococcal vaccine.
- Diphtheria, tetanus, and acellular pertussis, also called DTaP or Tdap.
- Varicella zoster (chickenpox).
- HPV vaccine.
- Influenza vaccine.

Maybe the most crucial thing IOM performed in this evaluation is that they looked at two classifications of science:
- Epidemiological research (big research studies comparing various groups of individuals against each other).
- Bench science (research into the biological systems at work within cells and particles).
” This is very important due to the fact that a great deal of the research studies that the CDC depends on as proof that vaccines don’t cause any problems are epidemiological research studies. This report is essential because they took a look at both type of science,” Barbara describes. “The most shocking conclusion of this report is that for more than a hundred bad health outcomes that have been reported after these eight vaccines have been offered to individuals, they could not come to a conclusion as to whether those vaccines did or did not cause those negative events!”
A few of those serious illness consisted of:
- Multiple sclerosis.
- Sleeping sickness (brain inflammation).
- Rheumatoid arthritis.
- Encephalopathy, including permanent mental retardation.
Why Couldn’t IOM Conclude Whether Vaccines Are Causative Factors?
Why is it that the IOM was not able to determine whether there was a direct causative link in between vaccines and the numerous serious health results indicated in these studies? Barbara recommends 4 possible descriptions:
- The research studies were not available in the released literature.
- There were too few research studies revealing the same link.
- The available studies were methodologically unsound.
- The offered research studies were clashing (i.e. there was evidence both for and against).
” What I call this category is the ‘We Don’t Know’ category. When you think about it, these vaccines are mandated for children, but in most circumstances the clinical proof [of safety] is so bad, they have no idea! When the report came out there were a lot of organizations like the American Academy of Pediatrics that emerged and stated, ‘They didn’t discover causation … So vaccines are safe.’ That’s NOT what that report said at all. I believe individuals need to comprehend the significance of it … [T] he classification of ‘We Don’t Know’ is a very important classification …”
Specific Susceptibility Was Discussed as a Co-Factor
The IOM report likewise went over individual susceptibility; the fact that some individuals are more prone for biological factors, consisting of genetic reasons, to having an unfavorable event after a vaccination. According to the report, both epidemiologic and mechanistic research recommends that many individuals who experience an unfavorable response to vaccines have a preexisting susceptibility. Nevertheless, the report likewise states that most of the times they do not know what those specific susceptibilities are.
” They have had a look and noted some that they believe are necessary,” Barbara says.
Potential predispositions recommended in the report include:
- Genetic variation.
- Coinciding illness.
- Ecological elements.
” Every physician who offers a vaccine must read this 600-page report,” Barbara says. “That it is their obligation due to the fact that this is the latest report on the science of vaccination; of what’s in the released literature.
They actually have to take it seriously due to the fact that if a patient that they vaccinate, whether it’s an adult or a child, has a wear and tear in health after a vaccination … [the doctor] needs to not blow that off and state that’s just a coincidence. They need to take it seriously and make a report to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), not to the producer (who we understand doesn’t give the CDC and FDA the proper details for them to follow up). You need to report to the government.
And you have to not consider that individual another vaccination, unless you know for sure that health problem was not caused by the vaccine. And think what? Science states in all these categories they have no idea. So the precautionary principle of ‘first do no damage,’ that has got to be duty of every doctor giving a vaccine.”
Numerous Parents Now Buck the System
About 13 percent of parents are now using an “alternative” vaccination schedule for their kids, according to a current survey. And two percent of parents are refusing vaccines altogether for their children.
According to Reuters:
” The Internet survey consisted of 748 parents of kids in between the ages of 6 months and six years. Of those, 13 percent stated they used some type of vaccination schedule that changed from the CDC recommendations. That included declining some vaccines or delaying vaccines till kids were older– mostly because parents believed that ‘appeared safer.'”
Among the parents who do follow the recommended youth vaccination schedule, 28 percent still stated they think it would certainly be safer to delay making use of vaccines, which the current vaccination schedule is far from ideal.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) vaccination schedule for children aged 6 and younger includes vaccines for measles, mumps, rubella, whooping cough, chicken pox, hepatitis, seasonal flu, and others. All in all, U.S. children are anticipated to get 48 doses of 14 vaccines by the time they’re 6 years of ages. By age 18, federal public health authorities state they must have gotten an overall of 69 dosages of 16 vaccines.
Is this safe and useful in the brief- and/or long-term? Nobody really understands, mostly due to the fact that large studies comparing the health outcomes of vaccinated versus unvaccinated children have not been a concern for vaccine researchers. The majority of vaccine research studies are about establishing more vaccines for children and adults to use.
Some claim research studies comparing the health of highly immunized and unvaccinated children can not be done due to the fact that it would be “dishonest” to leave children participating in the research study unvaccinated in order to do the comparison.
But because there are numbers of American parents who are currently delaying or avoiding vaccinating their children completely, this hardly appears like a sensible excuse. It appears most likely that comparing the health of immunized and unvaccinated children in appropriately designed research studies are prevented due to the fact that the results might distress the proverbial apple cart.
