How do you react to vaccines?

Please make sure that all vaccine reactions are reported. The Australian government's reaction reporting organisation, ADRAC, says that only between 1 and 10% of reactions are ever reported. If you, your child, or someone you know has reacted to a vaccine, please be sure to forward this link to them so that the reaction can be reported - http://tinyurl.com/593ska

All personal details are kept private and reports are completely de-identified before they are submitted to ADRAC.

New study demonstrates significant harm from just ONE mercury-containing vaccine

A new study, just published in the journal Neurotoxicology, found that primates that received just ONE vaccination containing Thiomersal, the mercury-preservative found in many vaccines including the new AH1N1 (swine flu) shot, had significant neurological impairment when compared with those who received a saline solution injection or no injection at all. Please note that the amount of Thiomersal was adjusted for weight and that these primates received only 2mcg - the new Swine Flu vaccine contains 24.5mcg or 49 times the FDA allowable daily limit for an adult.

According to Dr. Andrew Wakefield, Executive Director of Thoughtful House and a co-investigator of the project, "What is particularly concerning is that in spite of the recommendation to remove Thiomersal from vaccines a decade ago, millions of people, many of them children and pregnant mothers, are about to get mercury in their shots. Thiomersal is still routinely used in Hepatitis B and numerous other vaccines world-wide. "

The implications for Australia's new national campaign which is targeting pregnant women as its first recipients are frightening.

The Australian Vaccination Network, a national vaccine safety and health lobby group, urges the Federal government and Minister Roxon to err on the side of caution when it comes to administering untested vaccines containing mercury to those who are the most vulnerable. Surely when weighing up the risk of significant brain damage from Thiomersal preservatives against an influenza which has been shown to be milder than seasonal flu, we must say that the risk of the vaccine is greater than the risk of the flu. In addition, if this vaccine has not been shown to be safe in children under the age of 10, surely foetuses should likewise be excluded.

Below is the abstract of the study:

Abstract:

This study examined whether acquisition of neonatal reflexes and sensorimotor skills in newborn rhesus macaques (Macaca mulatta) is influenced by receipt of the single neonatal dose of Hepatitis B (HB) vaccine containing the preservative thimerosal (Th). HB vaccine containing a standardized weight-adjusted Th dose was administered to male macaques within 24 hours of birth (n=13). Unexposed animals received saline placebo (n=4) or no injection (n=3). Infants were raised identically and tested daily for acquisition of 9 survival, motor, and sensorimotor reflexes by a blinded observer. In exposed animals there was a significant delay in the acquisition of three survival reflexes: root, snout and suck, compared with unexposed animals. No neonatal responses were significantly delayed in unexposed animals compared with exposed. Gestational age (GA) and birth weight were not significantly correlated. Cox regression models were used to evaluate the main effects and interactions of exposure with birth weight and GA as independent predictors and time-invariant covariates. Significant main effects remained for exposure on root and suck when controlling for GA and birth weight such that exposed animals were relatively delayed in time-to-criterion. There was a significant effect of GA on visual follow far when controlling for exposure such that increasing GA was associated with shorter time-to-criterion. Interaction models indicated that while there were no main effects of GA or birth weight on root, suck or snout reflexes there were various interactions between exposure, GA, and birth weight such that inclusion of the relevant interaction terms significantly improved model fit. This, in turn, indicated important influences of birth weight and/or GA on the effect of exposure which, in general, operated in a way that lower birth weight and/or lower GA exacerbated the detrimental effect of vaccine exposure. This primate model provides a possible means of assessing adverse neurodevelopmental outcomes from neonatal Th-containing HB vaccine exposure, particularly in infants of lower GA or low birth weight. The mechanism of these effects and therequirements for Th is not known and requires further study.

Yet another victim of HPV Vaccines


When will we say enough is enough? When will we declare that our precious girls are not to be used as fodder for the pharmaceutical company's greed? Natalie Morton should not have died. This vaccine should never be given to anyone until it is proven that (a) HPV is related to cervical cancer and (b) the use of AS04 adjuvants is safe for use in humans.

Dr Richard Halvorsen: I'm not opposed to jabs but there are serious worries

Evangelists for mass vaccination like to claim that these programmes are of universal benefit to public health. Indeed, so zealous is their enthusiasm for vaccines that, through a cocktail of scaremongering and propaganda, they attempt to suppress all debate.
The result is that people, especially parents, feel bullied or patronised if they dare to challenge the official drive to vaccinate against every possible risk of disease. Moreover, this climate of fear is ruthlessly exploited by the big pharmaceutical companies, which see vast profits in exaggerated health concerns.
Yet the sudden death of Coventry schoolgirl Natalie Morton after a jab against cervical cancer highlights the reality that vaccination programmes are not without their risks

Protesters rally against swine flu vaccine | Politics on the Hudson




People power in action. NOBODY has the right to tell another person they must submit to a medical procedure they feel will place their life or their health at risk. EVERYONE in a democracy has the absolute right to maintain their own health the way they choose. Speak up America! And nurses who are speaking up for themselves now will hopefully start to be more vocal about compulsory mass vaccination for children and those in the military too.

Implantable device to tell doctors what viruses are in you

http://www.reuters.com/article/hotStocksNews/idUSTRE58K4BZ20090921

This is terrifying. And it is happening now. How will this device be administered? What other applications will it be put to? How will the satellite tracking be managed? Will we have the option to say no to this device? The implications are myriad and the abuses are even greater.

Technology is advancing at such a rapid rate that ethics and safety are not keeping up.

What do those drug ads REALLY tell you?

Yet another reason why I am so glad that these horrible ads are not allowed on Australian TV or in our magazines. Here's hoping the government sticks to their guns and keeps them out!

Flu Vaccine Exposed

Anyone who is considering having ANY flu vaccine needs to watch this presentation. Fully referenced, it demonstrates clearly that the risks from the flu vaccine far outweigh any potential benefits and that in fact, this incredibly ineffective vaccine has NO benefits - except for the bank accounts of Big Pharma, that is.

Perhaps this will see more unrest over the mandating of vaccinations for children?

Massachusetts law allows children to be removed and forcibly vaccinated!

This could very well be the cause of a new American revolution. If the police begin to remove children from their parents and FORCIBLY vaccinate them, there is no doubt that there will be huge civil unrest.

UK Government Farce over New Adult Autism 'Study'

http://www.ageofautism.com/2009/09/uk-government-farce-over-new-adult-autism-study-.html#more



By John Stone

A widely publicized report purporting once again to disprove a link between the measles-mumps-rubella shot and autism has been shown to be irretrievably flawed within hours of publication. Launched two days ago in the British media amid headlines like ‘Autism just as common in adults, so MMR is off the hook’ (Guardian HERE) and ‘Autism rates back MMR jab safety’ (BBC HERE) the study was based on just 19 cases, who were never assessed according to accepted diagnostic criteria for autism, and included adults as young as 16 who would have received MMR vaccine anyway.

The study (HERE) – led by Professor Traolach (Terry) Brugha - was conducted by the University of Leicester and the prestigious Autism Research Centre of the University of Cambridge, director Professor Simon Baron-Cohen. Despite this, neither standardized psychometric testing for autism, or accepted epidemiological methods were employed in reaching its conclusions , and much of its methodology remains obscure. The Department of Health has long been under pressure to show that autism was just as prevalent as today before MMR vaccine was introduced in 1988. But rather than dispel such concerns the new report is more likely to support claims of a cover-up.

Vaccine-A - the story of how squalene-based vaccines caused Gulf War Syndrome

Will we now see children, pregnant women and Aboriginal populations suffering from Gulf War Syndrome? If we used squalene-based vaccines, most likely, we will.

Gary Matsumoto is an award-winning journalist whose book, Vaccine-A, is a must-read for anyone interested in this issue. Read a bit about him here:

And here:

Squalene Adjuvants - why are they a problem?

For a good look at the science behind how squalene can be incredibly dangerous and why it has not been approved for use as an adjuvant in both the US and Australia (though it has been used in vaccines in both countries without approval and many of the vaccines being used for AH1N1 (2009) influenza this year in the US will contain squalene), please visit Dr Meryl Nass’ web site - here is the squalene search page - http://anthraxvaccine.blogspot.com/search?q=squalene

Squalene: The Swine Flu Vaccine’s Dirty Little Secret Exposed

By Dr. Mercola

According to Kathleen Sebelius, Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, your children should be the first target for mass swine flu vaccinations when school starts this fall.[i]

This is a ridiculous assumption for many reasons, not to mention extremely high risk.

In Australia, where the winter season has begun, Federal Health Minister Nicola Roxon is reassuring parents the swine flu is no more dangerous than regular seasonal flu. "Most people, including children, will experience very mild symptoms and recover without any medical intervention," she said.[ii]

Sydney-based immunization specialist Robert Booy predicts swine flu might be fatal to about twice as many children in the coming year as regular influenza. Booy estimates 10-12 children could die from the H1N1 virus, compared with the five or six regular flu deaths seen among children in an average year in Australia.[iii]

Researchers reveal reasons for low vaccination rates against influenza viruses

So, doctors, nurses and other health professionals say they don't want to take the flu vaccine because they don't think they are at a great risk of infection, they are afraid of adverse reactions from the vaccine and they think the vaccine won't work.

If these trained professionals feel this way (and 70% of them do!), then why is the answer - MAKE THEM VACCINATE? Surely, if those who are supposed to push vaccinations on others refuse to take them themselves, there is a problem and forcing them to vaccinate won't solve it.

IS ANYONE LISTENING???????

Dr Crippen: Just don't try giving me the swine flu vaccine

The government's chief commissar for immunisations, Professor David Salisbury, has said that nurses have a "duty" to be immunised against swine flu. A poll by nursingtimes.net showed that 30% of respondents would refuse to have it. If the government is surprised at the number of nurses who will not have the immunisation, just wait to see what happens when they offer it to doctors. On the facts available to date, I will not be having it. Nor will my family. I will not be the only doctor taking this view.

A great way to get over your fear of diseases

Sheri Nakken has been running these classes for about as long as I've known her. I have spoken with many of the parents who have taken her course and they all tell me how much more confident and empowered they feel.

I have never taken one of these courses myself so I can't endorse them - but I do feel that if you have questions and are afraid of viruses and bacteria, it would be worth checking this out and asking Sheri about it yourself.

The other 2 babies who died from whooping cough...

Dana McCaffery has been front page news since she died several months ago. But we keep hearing that there were three babies who died from pertussis (whooping cough) this year - why haven't we heard any details of the other two when Dana's short life has been examined so closely by the media?

Well, I think I have found the answer. The other two were partially vaccinated - and that doesn't make good news when the medical community and the media are trying to panic parents into vaccinating their children, themselves, their parents, etc. Please read the following:

There were 3 infant deaths recorded in NNDSS for this quarter. The youngest, from New South Wales, was 4 weeks of age at onset of illness (my note - they can't even get the details right! Dana got ill at 2 1/2 weeks of age and died at about 4 weeks - that wasn't when she was admitted to hospital!), was admitted to hospital and died in intensive care.8 The infant was too young to be vaccinated. The other 2 infants that died in Australia were eligible for vaccination and each had received 1 dose of pertussis-containing vaccine.

Letter on Coercive Vaccination campaigns

The following letter was sent to the ABC by one of our members, Judy Wilyman, who is a PhD Student at Murdoch University in WA. So far, this letter has not been posted to the 7:30 report web site, but it was so excellent, I really felt impelled to share it with you. It gets right to the heart of why we are activists, what we want to achieve and why silencing the AVN will not benefit anyone but those with a vested interest in seeing vaccinations without proper information continue - the drug companies that produce these shots.


 
Judy has also sent through a poster which she has put together which the AVN will shortly be reproducing for sale. If you have a place where you would be able to display this excellent and informative poster in your place of business, school or any other public venue, that would be great. Please email janiece@avn.org.au and ask her to send it through to you as a pdf file so you can preview it. Judy has also provided us with two papers she has written and you can find those by clicking here and here.

************************

Dear Sir/Madam,



I am writing to bring to your attention a human rights issue that many community members are concerned about. This issue is the increasingly coercive nature of the childhood immunisation schedule and the recent implementation of mandatory immunisation for health professionals and students intending to work in clinical situations.


The childhood immunisation schedule has been linked to welfare benefits, school entry and doctors pay. This means that parents who choose not to vaccinate their children are required to fill out a conscientious objector's form which many parents are not informed about. In other words parents are not being openly informed that vaccination in Australia is not compulsory and that they have a right to choose this procedure.
 


Is it legal for a government to misinform the public about a public health policy?



Immunisation is a medical intervention for healthy individuals and as such we should have the right to choose how we look after our own health unless the government can provide conclusive evidence that the benefits of the vaccines on the recommended schedule conclusively outweigh the risks to individuals.

The Precautionary Principle should apply if the science on a new technology or procedure is incomplete. This principle states that "The burden of proof of harmlessness of any new technology/process/activity/chemical is on the proponent and not the general public".


I have just watched the presentation of the whooping cough debate on the ABC 7.30 Report and am concerned that the government continues to use anecdotal evidence and fear of whooping cough to support whooping cough immunisation . Attached to this email is an article that was published in the Public Health Association of Australia's newsletter illustrating that the vaccine does not control the incidence of this disease and this fact is supported by public health officials of the 20th century.


Therefore I would like the government to provide the following evidence to support the claim that vaccines are safe and effective:



1) Evidence of the vaccination status of cases of whooping cough that are hospitalised or result in mortality? This evidence is not provided to the public to convince us of the need for the vaccine. We continue to have serious outbreaks of whooping cough despite the fact that Australia has had a vaccination rate of 90% in infants for the last decade. This trend is also observed in America and England.



2) Evidence that the whooping cough vaccine prevents the most severe cases of this disease. This can only be demonstrated if you have monitored the vaccination status of hospitalised cases of this disease. Yet this has not been publicised to support this claim by the government.
 


3) The whooping cough vaccine has not controlled the incidence of this disease since it was first used in 1954. Public health officials of the 20th century have explained why this is the case (see attachment). So why is the government promoting this policy to the public under the impression that it will control the incidence of whooping cough?



4) The government knows that children vaccinated against whooping cough are still getting this disease. So how is the government able to claim that it is the unvaccinated children that are spreading this disease?



5) Children under 6 months - the age of highest mortality - cannot be protected from this vaccine. A child is only protected after 3 doses of this vaccine and this occurs after 6 months.



6) Where are the long-term studies which show it is safe to combine 12 vaccines in an infant's body? There are many studies showing that the chemicals in vaccines can cause chronic illness in humans. Therefore it is essential that long-term health studies have been done of the combined effects - cumulative and synergistic - of the 12 vaccines the government is recommending we put into an infant's body. Can you please provide this evidence? It is well known that the toxicity of substances varies with age, gender and genetics and that health effects can have latency periods.
 


7) Why are Hepatitis B and chickenpox vaccines recommended for all infants when they are a risk to a small minority of children?
 


Many families rely on welfare benefits and are therefore feeling forced to vaccinate even though they are concerned about the escalating chronic illness in children. 41% of children 1-14 years of age now have a chronic illness (AIHW).

I would like you to justify this policy which leads the public to believe immunisation in Australia is compulsory.

It is important that the government can provide open and transparent information to explain why it has implemented mandatory and coercive immunisation policies. I believe it is unethical for these policies to be coercive if the above evidence is not provided by an independent body.
 


This is not rocket science. The chemicals in vaccines are observed to have harmful effects in animals. When they are injected directly into the tissues of infants they bypass the normal defence mechanisms. The government has continued to increase the number of vaccines on the schedule without knowing the long-term health effects of combining these vaccines and without fully understanding the functioning of human body systems.

In addition, parents have not been informed that all vaccines in previous years have contained antibiotics, preservatives (mercury, formaldehyde) and aluminium adjuvants.
 
I have been investigating vaccines for a number of years and I am currently doing a PhD at Murdoch University supported by Associate Professor Peter Dingle and Associate Professor Brian Martin.

I will attach the poster and papers that I have recently had published at the National Health Promotion Conference and in the ACNEM journal of medicine.
 


It is a fact that the safety and efficacy clinical trials for vaccines performed by the NHMRC are sponsored by the pharmaceutical companies. This is not objective science and the bias is enhanced by preventing the general community (upon whom this policy is being imposed) from having an input into the risk assessment process. This is against the risk assessment guidelines.



It is known that the risk assessment for the use of a drug/vaccine will vary according to the assessor and the stake they have in the procedure.
This is an issue which concerns all of us and the genetics of the population is at risk if we do not have the science to support this policy. It is time that all possible causes of chronic illness in children were examined to prevent the cost that we are observing to society. In addition, mandatory and coercive policies are inappropriate if this evidence is not provided and the government is currently misleading the public by promoting this public health policy as if it were compulsory when it is not.


Kind regards

Judy Wilyman.
