A young mother recently told me how her infant son slept through the night following his vaccines, not even waking up for his feeding. Her pediatrician assured her the next morning that it was "normal." As you will learn in the video below, "excessive sleepiness" is a vaccine reaction to watch for. Knowing how to recognize a vaccine reaction, and asking yourself these 8 questions before you vaccinate, could save your child from long-term vaccine injury and even death. Please share this important information with those who choose to vaccinate.

Do you know how to recognize a vaccine reaction?
Like with prescription drugs and other pharmaceutical products, reactions to vaccines can be mild or severe. There can be complete recovery or long lasting health problems after vaccine reactions. Rarely, vaccine reactions can be fatal. 1 2
If you are making a decision about vaccination for yourself or your child, it is important to first become fully informed about each vaccine’s reported side effects, precautions and contraindications, which means reasons for why a person may be at risk for having a serious reaction. 3 4
It is especially important for parents to become informed about vaccine complications and how to recognize the symptoms of a vaccine reaction. 5

When it comes to vaccine safety, I question what has happened to common sense which the Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines as "sound and prudent judgement based on a simple perception of the situation or facts." I agree with something a wise young father once said to me, "Common sense has become uncommon sense."
Listen below to this brief and compelling message from Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and the World Mercury Project; and then ask yourself, does it make sense?

“Consider this. That all of the companies that make vaccines, Merck, Sanofi, Glaxo and Pfizer, have all paid billions of dollars in penalties in their pharmaceutical business for lying to the public, for cheating on their testing, for deceiving regulators and for committing other crimes in order to sell products and maximize their profits. Why does anybody believe that if you suddenly gave them immunity from all liability which we’ve done with vaccines, that they’d suddenly stop doing bad things to our children and to the rest of us? It makes no sense; and of course, they haven’t.”
- Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., World Mercury Project -
Has "no liability" from the Vaccine Injury Compensation Act led to massive vaccine manufacturers profits and a rise in childhood chronic illnesses? Taxpayers have paid almost $4 BILLION for vaccine injuries while vaccine manufacturers are liability-free with no incentive to make safer vaccines.

If you've read my last two posts, you know that for over 30 years, the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services has not made sure that childhood vaccines are safe as mandated in the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986. Therefore, it's up to us to demand a new vaccine safety policy. Keep reading, listen to and please share an important video message from Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., World Mercury Project.
Demand New Vaccine Safety Policy
In 1986, prior to the explosion of the vaccine schedule, only 12.4% of American children had a chronic disease such as ADHD, autism, rheumatoid arthritis, food allergies, asthma, just to name a few. Today it's 54%. Anyone who tells you vaccines are eliminated as a culprit in these childhood epidemics is not telling you the truth.

“I don’t think that there’s any crisis that is as devastating or threatening to all of our values, to everything we care about as a nation, as a people, than the epidemic of chronic disease in America’s children...We know from the science that all of these diseases can be caused by the ingredients in vaccines; and we know that the epidemic of these diseases exploded after the dramatic expansion of the vaccine schedule that took place in 1989. That doesn’t mean that all of these epidemics are definitely being caused by vaccines; but it means that we ought to be doing the science. And anybody who tells you that the science has eliminated vaccines as a culprit in these epidemics, is not telling you the truth.”
It's time to do the research and we need your help to spread the message. Facebook is not allowing us to boost ("promote") our newest video, so please watch and share this video of Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and help World Mercury Project demand vaccine safety policies that start with good science and a clean regulatory process.

Vaccine Safety? “…the one government agency that’s supposed to be protecting us, is not doing it’s job.”
Watch the four minute video below and read the brief article below that for a clear, concise explanation of why the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 was passed and how the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has failed us when it comes to vaccine safety. For further information read and watch the video in my last post.
For over 30 years, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has never complied with federal vaccine safety mandates.
"For 30 years, the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) broke the law regarding vaccine safety, and no one noticed or cared. Then two men came along and discovered the scandal..."
Read "US government exposed: for 30 years, it broke the law on vaccine safety" by Jon Rappoport.
CLICK HERE TO TAKE ACTION:
Send messages to your two US Senators, your member of the House, the Secretary of HHS, and the President, to let them know that you know they are not doing what was promised to protect our children; and demand that HHS obey the law.
Many thanks to Autism Action Network for making it easy for all of us
to contact our legislators.
Lastly, since mainstream media has also failed us by not reporting on this atrocity which has contributed to vaccine injury and death for many children; share what you now know with others, especially those who trust that vaccines are safe and continue to vaccinate their children.
To understand exactly what HHS has failed to do, for over 30 years, read the "Mandate for safer childhood vaccines" excerpt from the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 below.
300aa–27. Mandate for safer childhood vaccines
(a) General rule
In the administration of this part and other pertinent laws under the jurisdiction of the Secretary, the Secretary shall--
(1) promote the development of childhood vaccines that result in fewer and less serious adverse reactions than those vaccines on the market on December 22, 1987, and promote the refinement of such vaccines, and
(2) make or assure improvements in, and otherwise use the authorities of the Secretary with respect to, the licensing, manufacturing, processing, testing, labeling, warning, use instructions, distribution, storage, administration, field surveillance, adverse reaction reporting, and recall of reactogenic lots or batches, of vaccines, and research on vaccines, in order to reduce the risks of adverse reactions to vaccines.
(b) Task force
(1) The Secretary shall establish a task force on safer childhood vaccines which shall consist of the Director of the National Institutes of Health, the Commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration, and the Director of the Centers for Disease Control.
(2) The Director of the National Institutes of Health shall serve as chairman of the task force.
(3) In consultation with the Advisory Commission on Childhood Vaccines, the task force shall prepare recommendations to the Secretary concerning implementation of the requirements of subsection (a).
Within 2 years after December 22, 1987, and periodically thereafter, the Secretary shall prepare and transmit to the Committee on Energy and Commerce of the House of Representatives and the Committee on Labor and Human Resources of the Senate a report describing the actions taken pursuant to subsection (a) during the preceding 2-year period.
(July 1, 1944, ch. 373, title XXI, §2127, as added Pub. L. 99–660, title III, §311(a), Nov. 14, 1986, 100 Stat. 3777; amended Pub. L. 100–203, title IV, §4302(b)(1), Dec. 22, 1987, 101 Stat. 1330–221; Pub. L. 101–239, title VI, §6601(q), Dec. 19, 1989, 103 Stat. 2292.)
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 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, 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.
The relationship between mucosal immunity, nasopharyngeal carriage, asymptomatic transmission and the resurgence of Bordetella pertussis
The incidence of whooping cough in the US has been rising slowly since the 1970s, but the pace of this has accelerated sharply since acellular pertussis vaccines replaced the earlier whole cell vaccines in the late 1990s. A similar trend occurred in many other countries, including the UK, Canada, Australia, Ireland, and Spain, following the switch to acellular vaccines. The key question is why. Two leading theories (short duration of protective immunologic persistence and evolutionary shifts in the pathogen to evade the vaccine) explain some but not all of these shifts, suggesting that other factors may also be important. Read more.
Why is Whooping Cough on the Rise?
Evidence points to limitations of the current pertussis vaccines
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.
Pertussis: Vaccine Failure, Not Failure to Vaccinate
These studies show that the Pertussis (whooping cough) vaccine has now failed. Studies show that by five years after completion of the DTaP series, children were up to 15 times more likely to acquire pertussis compared to the first year after the series. 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.
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."
As outlined in the CDC's Increasing Awareness and Uptake of Influenza Immunization/Recipe for Fostering Public Interest and High Vaccine Demand "creating concern, anxiety and worry" with the help of medical experts, public health authorities and the media, is an integral part of an aggressive campaign to scare people into getting the flu vaccine. We've all probably heard, read or watched "scary" news reports about how deadly the flu is this year and why you should get a flu shot. What they often fail to mention is that most, if not all, of the victims had received the flu shot and/or were treated with flu drugs; and that there are more vaccine injury claims related to the flu vaccine than any other vaccine.
Take steps to promote optimum health and prevent flu naturally; and before you rush out to get a flu vaccine, which even mainstream sources admit is only 10% effective; or take a drug like Tamiflu, do your homework. Simply "trusting" your doctor or one-sided fear based media reports is not enough. Use the resources at the end of this post to help make sure you are making an informed decision and not one based on irrational fear.
Increasing Awareness and Uptake of Influenza Immunization
Recipe for Fostering Public Interest and High Vaccine Demand
In the brief video clip below, Del Bigtree exposes what happened when members of the HighWire team went on a field trip to hospitals mentioned in a January 16, 2018 L. A. Times article, "California hospitals face a 'war zone' of flu patients — and are setting up tents to treat them." After watching, perhaps you'll agree that things might not be quite as scary as we are being led to believe.
