I think it's safe to say that parents who choose to vaccinate their children believe that vaccines are safe and effective. Parents trust their pediatricians; and U.S. pediatricians trust the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) which is the U.S. leading public health agency under the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The following statement is taken from the HHS website.
"It is the mission of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) to enhance and protect the health and well-being of all Americans. We fulfill that mission by providing for effective health and human services and fostering advances in medicine, public health, and social services."
What if, when it comes to vaccine safety, HHS is NOT doing their job; and hasn't done their job for more than 30 years? Should they still be trusted? If you're a parent, grandparent or anyone who cares about children, you should be concerned, especially since during that time, the childhood vaccine schedule has increased dramatically.

In 1986, when Congress granted economic immunity to pharmaceutical companies for vaccine injury, they recognized it eviscerated the economic incentive for pharmaceutical companies to create safe vaccines or make existing ones safer. Congress therefore placed the responsibility and burden for vaccine safety directly on the shoulders and in the hands of the Secretary of HHS. This section is literally entitled “Mandate for safer childhood vaccines” and requires the HHS Secretary to submit a report to Congress every two years detailing what improvements in vaccine safety were made in the preceding two years.
In August, 2017 Informed Consent Action Network (ICAN) submitted a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requesting any and all of those reports transmitted to Congress. HHS was unresponsive to the request, therefore on April 12, 2018, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and Aaron Siri (Co-Counsel for ICAN) were forced to file a complaint in US District Court, ordering HHS to comply. Once ordered to provide the reports it came to light that, amazingly, HHS has never, not even once, submitted the required biennial report.
This speaks volumes about the disregard for vaccine safety at HHS and heightens the concerns that the agency doesn’t have a clue as to the actual safety profile of the now 29 doses, and growing, of vaccines given by one year of age.
Recently, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. was interviewed by Del Bigtree, one of the preeminent voices of the vaccine risk awareness movement and founder of ICAN about the implications of this lack of oversight and what the future holds.
“This is the first of a barrage of legal approaches that we devised. The legal strategy that we (World Mercury Project) believe will ultimately bring support to the parents, protect these children and bring justice to the families that have been injured.” — RFK. Jr.

ICAN Written Notice to HHS
This notice sent to HHS (Health and Human Services) articulates the complete failure of HHS to conduct the proper science required to demonstrate vaccine safety. Additionally, ICAN lays out the provisions of the (1986 Act) that legally require HHS to conduct science that reduces the risk of all vaccine injury. Failure to do so could result in legal action against HHS.

COMPLAINT FOR DECLARATORY AND INJUNCTIVE RELIEF

INFORMED CONSENT ACTION NETWORK AGAINST UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES
Keep reading for a comprehensive overview and explanation of the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, compiled by the World Mercury Project.
The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) was created in 1986 as a no-fault alternative to the traditional legal system for resolving vaccine injury petitions. According to the US Health and Human Services, it was created after lawsuits against vaccine companies and health care providers threatened to cause vaccine shortages and reduce U.S. vaccination rates, which they believed could cause a resurgence of vaccine preventable diseases. Any individual, of any age, who received a covered vaccine and believes he or she was injured as a result, can file a petition. Parents, legal guardians and legal representatives can file on behalf of children, disabled adults, and individuals who are deceased. According to the vaccine-injured and their loved ones, the program has failed miserably as a litigious, broken system where the injured are up against a government vaccine program, government owned vaccine patents, government health officials who administer the program and government paid attorneys from the Department of Justice. There is no judge, no jury of your peers and no discovery. Claimants feel the system is set up for their claims to fail. Read more.

If you and your children are fortunate enough to have escaped obvious vaccine injury, just imagine what it's like for parents who have watched their child's physical and neurological health decline after vaccines, or worse yet, imagine what it's like to lose a child due to vaccines. Now imagine what it's like to watch three of your children "slip away" into their own little worlds on the same day -- the day they got the same vaccine.
Richie, Robbie & Claire
In October, 2016, I shared a post entitled, "They just shut off...all the giggles...all the smiles..." The post included a video of Brenda and David McDowell telling the story of their beautiful, healthy triplets who woke up happy, healthy 9 month old babies on June 25, 2007. At around 10AM, they each received a pneumococcal vaccine; and by that evening, they were severely autistic. Brenda, an educational audiologist, describes how one by one, she watched her babies "slip away" into their own little worlds -- Claire at 12 Noon; Richie at 2PM and Robbie at 5PM.
Seven years later, the McDowells learned that weeks after their children were injured by that particular pneumococcal vaccine; it was pulled from the market due to contamination; but not before it claimed the life of another two year old child.
In the 2017 Michigan for Vaccine Choice video below, the McDowells talk about their ordeal and David gives wise advice to all parents. Take time to listen; and please share with others.
“I don’t presume to tell you what to do. Whether to vaccinate or not to vaccinate; but I do presume to tell you that you have to take responsibility for that decision. You have to do your own research. You have to make your own decision. You have to be strong and you have to be fully responsible for your decision; because you will be fully responsible for the consequences of that decision, whatever it is.”
"...the only way we can describe it was as if her soul was sucked out of her body. She was literally the shell of the little person we use to know...everything was gone...she acted deaf and blind..."
"...at 2 o'clock that day we lost Richie. We watched our first boy shut down...he acted like he couldn't hear...I knew we had a second hit when he started staring at the
"...and then we moved on to Robbie...You could see his smile disappear, but he was still looking at us, still responding to his name and by 5PM, we watched Robbie slip away . . . It was so hard. We were in shock. "
"We had normal, fully developing children that morning; and we now had
three severely injured children that night."
"There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that the vaccine was
100% the cause of them shutting off."

In the late 80's, when I started researching vaccines, I did things the "old fashioned" way. I sought out and read books and magazine articles; asked a lot of questions and talked with people who had experienced the illnesses we now vaccinate for. (I invite you to read "Why I started researching vaccines.") Fast forward 30 years, and thanks to technology and the internet, including a calculator and apps that you'll read about below, information is literally at your fingertips 24/7; so there's no excuse for not being well informed about vaccines before you make a decision that can and often does alter the rest of your and your child's life. It's not enough to simply trust your doctor's recommendation. Far too many parents, whose children are included at "We Remember" and "Families Speak" regret that they did just that.
I urge parents (and grandparents) to research vaccines thoroughly. I've compiled a list of where to start here. Keep reading to learn more about those "techie" tools; and please tell others about them. They only work if people know about and use them!
So what is VaxCalc? It's a free tool to help you learn about the ingredients in vaccines that your doctor recommends; compute ingredient exposure for multiple vaccinations; protect against a preventable allergic reaction; compare vaccine brands so you can request a brand with less toxic ingredients and much more.
While with a group of friends last week, the subject came up that grandparents (and other family members) are being told they must get a Tdap vaccine before meeting the new baby in the family to protect baby from pertussis/whooping cough. It's an issue that has caused conflicts within some families.
You might recall seeing the rather frightening GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) "big bad cough" campaign, targeting grandparents, where Grandma morphs into a big bad wolf ready to cough on the infant and infect him or her with pertussis. In case you haven't seen it, it's included in the video below.
It is true that pertussis (whooping cough) is especially dangerous for a young baby; but the fact is -- and it's backed by science -- the adult getting the pertussis vaccine just might put baby at an even higher risk; because even though the vaccine recipient will not exhibit symptoms -- which would probably have kept him from visiting baby in the first place -- he or she can unknowingly have and transmit the illness to others, including the new baby.
Del Bigtree (Vaxxed, ICAN, HighWire) gives a good explanation -- complete with props -- in the video below. Take time to watch.
So, if you or someone you know has been told they must get a pertussis vaccine to protect the new baby, be sure to read the information I've included below and share it with them...and their doctors.
Acellular pertussis vaccines protect against disease but fail to prevent infection and transmission in a nonhuman primate model
In this study, we show nonhuman primates vaccinated with aP were protected from severe symptoms but not infection and readily transmitted Bordetella pertussis to contacts...and a cross-sectional study showed that postpartum aP vaccination of mothers did not reduce pertussis illness in young infants. These data suggest that cocooning is unlikely to be an effective strategy to reduce the burden of pertussis in infants. Read full study.
Resurgence of Whooping Cough May Owe to Vaccine’s Inability to Prevent Infections
The startling global resurgence of pertussis, or whooping cough, in recent years can largely be attributed to the immunological failures of acellular vaccines, School of Public Health researchers argue in a new journal article...“This disease is back because we didn’t really understand how our immune defenses against whooping cough worked, and did not understand how the vaccines needed to work to prevent it,” said Christopher J. Gill, associate professor of global health and lead author of the article. “Instead we layered assumptions upon assumptions, and now find ourselves in the uncomfortable position of admitting that we may made some crucial errors. This is definitely not where we thought we’d be in 2017.” Read more.
Whooping Cough Outbreaks Continue Nationwide Due to Failed Pertussis Vaccine
Once blamed on unvaccinated children, few today deny the fact that fully vaccinated children are spreading whooping cough as outbreaks continue across the U.S...The pertussis vaccine is supposed to protect against whooping cough, and even though health officials now acknowledge that the vaccine is not effective, it is still required. Read more.
*The pertussis vaccine is only available in combination with tetanus and diphtheria. Before getting any vaccine, be sure to weigh the risks and the benefits. Read the actual vaccine package insert for a list of ingredients, warnings, contraindications, adverse effects, etc., and read the

Aluminum toxicity expert Professor Christopher Exley, PhD and autoimmunity expert Yehuda Shoenfeld, MD discuss vaccines...
Last month, The 5th International Symposium on Vaccines, sponsored by the Children's Medical Safety Research Institute (CMSRI) took place in Lisbon, Portugal as part of the 11th International Congress on Autoimmunity. The symposium brought together medical researchers from around the world to share the latest research on vaccine safety and potential links between vaccine adjuvants and adverse autoimmune reactions. Read more about the symposium, including participants, and abstracts for each presentation here.
While attending the symposium, Del Bigtree (Vaxxed, ICAN, HighWire) interviewed world-renowned aluminum toxicity expert and symposium organizer, Professor Christopher Exley, PhD; and world-renowned autoimmunity expert and Congress President, Yehuda Shoenfeld, MD.
Watch the interviews below and listen to what these brilliant scientists say about their findings, the integrity of scientific research today; the loss of funding and other challenges that university researchers face; and why it is increasingly difficult for scientists to do independent research. Please share this information with others, especially doctors and vaccinating parents who cling to the belief that "vaccines are safe and effective" and that when it comes to vaccine safety, "the science is settled." It's difficult for me to understand how anyone who listens to these interviews wouldn't question vaccine safety if they haven't done so already.
Olivia was born perfectly healthy. Now 19 years old, she began having seizures at the age of 18 months following the MMR vaccine. Her mother, Kelly Johnson, shares her daughter's difficult and painful journey, as well as her own, in her beautifully written, touching, and often heart wrenching "Restoring Olivia" blog posts. As Kelly shared recently...
"Olivia's illness....her disability.....her uncontrolled seizures....this cruel interruption to our lives is the result of vaccine injury. I know, it's a hard reality for some to accept, but unfortunately, it is true. Vaccines destroyed my daughter's health."
From "No more shame" by Kelly Johnson
Kelly's latest update, "Mending..." is a joyful one that shares in print and video the progress Olivia is making after a recent extended hospital stay that resulted in four new serious conditions. I invite you to read Kelly's post and watch the "Olivia on the Mend" video below. I also ask that you pray for sweet Olivia and her devoted and determined mother, Kelly.
"What's important is that the mending has begun and I feel like I have a better understanding of how the vaccines tore a hole in the Perfection she was given."
Growing up and going to school in the 50's and 60's, our class sizes were quite large with one teacher per class. In my case, going to Catholic school, the teacher was always a woman and often, that woman was a nun. We didn't have classes for children with special needs and I didn't know anyone with autism or anyone who would now be considered on the autism spectrum. When I started researching vaccines in the 80's, there was very little mention of autism in the many books and articles I read; and it wasn't until 2007 that I met a woman whose little boy displayed autistic like behavior and was later diagnosed with autism. His mother believes that his autism was triggered by a flu shot she received during pregnancy. That little guy's picture is on my desk and continues to inspire me each day to keep sharing information so that parents can make well informed vaccine decisions.
On April 27th, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released its latest autism spectrum disorder (ASD) estimates. According to their new figures, as of 2014, 1 in 59 eight year olds has been identified with autism spectrum disorder with ASD being about four times more common in boys than in girls. (Read more here and here.) According to the CDC's own figures, In the year 2000, that number was 1 in 150. In 1970 that number was 1 in 10,000.

When mothers speak out about the dangers of vaccines, they're often brushed off as being irrational or "just crazy mothers." Thirty years ago, a pediatrician I was considering called me "crazy" when I raised questions about vaccines. (He never did become our pediatrician.)
Young moms have told me that their instinct, along with research they've done, tells them not to vaccinate their babies; or at least to delay vaccinating; but their husbands, some of whom have not done any serious vaccine safety research, disagree and insist on following the doctor's recommendation. It's a very difficult and all too common situation.
Fortunately, more and more dads, are asking questions about vaccine safety. Unfortunately, some start researching after losing a child to vaccines; or they get pulled into this issue after their own children have been adversely affected by vaccines. They want answers that the medical establishment is not giving them.
Two autism fathers who watched their children's health deteriorate following vaccines -- J. B. Handley and Mark Blaxill -- have been researching, writing and speaking out about vaccine truth and vaccine safety for years. Their contributions to this movement are powerful.
The two young fathers in the video below, Adam Ringham and Chris Kickoff, are taking what they have learned and speaking out in an attempt to educate others and they do it in their own unique style. They have also written a book to help parents make well informed decisions
"Don't give honey to an infant but go ahead and let them get over 70 vaccines" is an entertaining and enlightening video. (Make sure the sound is not muted so you can hear their clever rant.), These two young dads have done their homework on vaccines and a lot more pregnancy and baby related topics. Keep reading for information about their book, "So You're Going To Have A Baby."
Having come to know many mothers of vaccine injured children and mothers who have lost a child to vaccine injury, it disturbs me greatly when these strong but wounded women are marginalized by others who choose not to believe what these mothers know to be true.
In the video below, Hillary Simpson, the mother of three children, including a vaccine injured little boy, eloquently delivers a powerful message in an effort to spread awareness about an issue which, as she states, "ultimately makes her CRAZY." Watch, listen, share and please remember Hillary, her children, and ALL "crazy mothers" and their vaccine injured children in your thoughts and prayers.
"As a mother of a vaccine injured child, the hardest comment to hear from people is when they say, over and over again... 'Don’t listen to them. They’re just a bunch of crazy mothers.'... I am a mother. I am the one who knows the rhythm of my child’s heartbeat. I am the one who gave life to this baby, no easy feat. I am that baby’s first food, first sustenance in every sense of the word. Emotionally, physically, spiritually. Whether the first or the third, I have what it needs to survive and thrive. And now that they’ve grown a little… As a mother, I know when they need to eat or poop or get a big hug. I know when they are hiding, I know if they are lying. I know who hit who first without even trying. I know how they like to sleep: one bundled up, one without covers, and one somewhere in between. I know all of their dreams. I know their fears, their hopes. I know their wins and their losses...I know how to keep them safe, how to read the emotion on their little face... And most importantly… I know what happened to my little boy. I know he had his shots one day at six months..."
"After experiencing the devastation of vaccine injury, there are certain words you will never hear the mother of a vaccine injured child say."
Vaccine injury is real, and far more frequent than we are led to believe. Joshua Coleman, the father of a young son who was left paralyzed by his childhood vaccines. has compiled an album of powerful photos and messages from other parents of vaccine injured children. Several are included in this post. If you have access to Facebook, click here to view the entire #SaidNoMother album.
