What's in your vaccine?

Posted Sep 01 2008 7:16pm
Do you know what is in your child's vaccination? Do you know how they even test them to make sure they are safe?

The government's own data collection at Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System: VAERS.org is informative. By 2007, the *government* fund had paid out $1.8 billion in damages to 1500 individuals and/or parents for vaccine injuries, including death. Many of the newest vaccines have limited research on children BEFORE being marketed. Obviously, most parents are not comfortable with having experimental vaccines tried on their child. So, the manufactures rely on "Post Marketing Research". Post Marketing Research is the reporting system that doctors are required by law to document ALL reactions to vaccines. However, most every pediatrician will tell parents that fevers, lethargy, crying, pain, etc are"normal" for the first hours and days after vaccinations. And these are not reported. Long term studies of reactions beyond the first 3-30 days have research on few children. Then they extrapolate the"conclusions" to all 72,000,000 children in the US. Older vaccines have more post-market research.

And then there are the vaccine ingredients, such as human diploid cells and tissue from aborted fetus, which unquestionably places the vaccine issue into the "religious" arena for many people. (note the following list of ingredients is from an 1997 PDR; and thimerasol has been removed in most.)

Here is a link for the drug insert for each vaccine: http://www.vaccinesafety.edu/thi-table.htm Click on each vaccine (blue link by brand name) to view the ingredients, side effects, contraindications, etc.
