The 'Vaccines are safe' lie
[home] Vaccination [back] Lies

"The greatest lie ever told is that vaccines are safe and effective" ---Dr. Len Horowitz
"THE ONLY WHOLLY SAFE VACCINE IS THE VACCINE THAT IS NEVER USED." (Dr J. Shannon of the National Institute of Health, U.S.A., June 23 1955.)

[This is a 200 year old lie.  No vaccine is safe unless you include death, numerous diseases and serious brain damage in the definition of safe!!  As you would expect from Social dominators, vaccinators have a different definition e.g. Dr Offit terms 'safe' as 'benefits outweigh risks'! And see FDA definition below.  Breastfeeding is safe (so is NOT vaccinating) and most people use that definition, but not the medical mafia.  The long line of withdrawn vaccines and Vaccine Disasters reveal the truth.  If vaccines were "safe" they wouldn't need safety tests.  Even the UK government has paid out for MMR deaths but still says it is safe and doesn't kill!  Have a look at Profits vs. Safety also.  Also the thousands of medical citations, Media stories, VAERS and package inserts are closer to the true story.]

[2013 Jan] Infanrix Kills and Maims, but GSK Hid It from Doctors & Parents  GSK wanted to keep the public from knowing about the adverse effects of their Infanrix vaccine. The secret report slipped out, and it’s revealing. It validates the recent study showing that multiple vaccine doses increase the death rate by 50%—but there’s no real change to the safety advice.

[2012 Feb] Conflicts of Interest in Vaccine Safety Research   Vaccine safety: "While the safety of an individual vaccine is considered in the regulatory approval process, studies tend to observe the effects of a vaccine for only a few weeks after the administration of the shot, so long-term effects are unknown. Moreover, no study of the safety of the entire US. vaccine schedule has ever been undertaken. That is, the safety of the combination of vaccines is unknown.  Although many parents report that vaccines have caused or are associated with autism, no research sponsor has launched a major investigation of the children who are alleged to have developed autism from vaccines. One study found at least 83 vaccine-injured people who received compensation. Some industry analysts have characterized public confidence in vaccines as a crisis (Black and Rappuoli, 2010). Kennedy et al. (2011) report that 77% of US. parents surveyed have at least one concern about vaccine safety. Not only parents, but health care workers including new doctors are also raising questions about vaccine safety. One study revealed that only 40% of health care workers received an influenza shot (King et al., 2006). In another study, reasons for refusal by health care workers included concern over adverse reactions (Clark et al., 2009)."

The two of the three vaccine brands that were introduced in 1988 had to be withdrawn for safety reasons and yet Dr Salisbury in his statement to the GMC sums up by saying this is a vaccine with an exemplary safety record.  Well, if that is his idea of an excellent safety record then we have a very different perception he and I of vaccine safety.

Oh, the medical profession crows about how vaccines companies take pride in proving safety to the FDA, and how it's all about "altruism", not money, but only a fool believes that.  The truth is there to see, right from the horses mouth - clear and blatant.  It's all about money, and why not "avoid scrutiny from the FDA"?  That is their aim, but they've never quite put it so blatantly. Just follow the mark-ups in this document, and you'll see what I mean. [2011 May] It's all about money by Hilary Butler

"All trial participants have to be healthy. You won't find babies in these trials who have ongoing health issues, family history of immunodeficiency, failure to thrive, or any ill health.....If it's not acceptable to vaccinate babies with any possible health problem in any vaccine study, why does it become acceptable after the vaccine has been licensed to vaccinate premature babies? Or to vaccinate at birth, babies from at risk mothers who have exactly these problems that excluded them from the study in the first place, or babies who have just come out of intensive care?"--Hilary Butler Healthy trial babies only

The FDA definition of safety (FDA Code of Federal Regulation. 21 CFR 600.), which is "relative freedom from harmful effect to persons affected directly or indirectly by a product when prudently administered, taking into consideration the character of the product in relation to the condition of the recipient at the time." Which can mean all things to all people depending on what they want to explain away. Just A Little Prick by Peter and Hilary Butler

"I am hugely grateful to Vivienne Parry, a member of the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation, which advises the Government on the controversial MMR injection, for finally explaining the true attitude of the authorities: 'There's a small risk with all vaccines,' she says.

Dr Offit works for Merck and has a patent on a Rotavirus vaccine
"If they were willing to look at all the studies that were done with vaccines, they would find that they are, I think without question, the safest, best-tested thing we put into our bodies," says Offit. "I think they have a better safety record than vitamins.  (CBS) 60 MinutesOctober 20, 2004

"Safety studies on vaccinations are limited to short time periods only: several days to several weeks. There are NO (NONE) long term (months or years) safety studies on any vaccination or immunization. For this reason, there are valid grounds for suspecting that many delayed-type vaccine reactions may be taking place unrecognized at to their true nature. Dr Buttram MD

"There have never been any safety studies done for any vaccine in use today that would meet the criteria of scientific proof. All we have are epidemiologic studies, which are indicators but not proof in and of themselves." [Oct 2004] Letter to the British Medical Journal by Harold E Buttram, MD,

"Longest safety trial of of the triple vaccine (MMR, all live attenuated viruses) was three weeks."--Dr Fudenburg MD

"I have minutes from a CDC Study Group Meeting on the Hepatitis B vaccine held in March, 1997. The minutes of the meeting show that it would take at least a 60 day study to show the onset of MS. Clinical studies done by the two manufacturers were four and five days in length, respectively. It should be noted that the afternoon session of this meeting was chaired by Dr. Robert Sharrar of Merck."--Betty D. Fluck

JABS has not been able to find any properly conducted trials where the safety of the vaccines has been monitored for more than a few weeks. Why Does The MMR Vaccine Need To Be Suspended?

"The anthrax vaccine was approved without every doing a controlled clinical  study. There is no long term safety data on the anthrax vaccine. The government admitted this in congressional hearings. It is a distortion of the truth to say there is substantial safety data."--Bart Classen

They really tested this Rotavirus vaccine:
WESTPORT, Oct 18 1999 (Reuters Health) - The Wyeth Lederle Vaccines unit of American Home Products said on Friday that it has voluntarily withdrawn its RotaShield rotavirus vaccine from the market and has requested an immediate return of all vaccine doses.

Contradictions in the same sentence (oxymoron):

New vaccines are always "safer" than old ones which points out the previous ones are never safe:
"The vaccine virus strain has been attenuated beyond the level of the original Edmonston B strain and is therefore known as a further attenuated strain. Vaccine prepared with the further attentuated measles virus causes fewer reactions than its predecessor, Edmonston B vaccine, which is no longer distributed in the United States."--ACIP/CDC 1982 http://www.cdc.gov/epo/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/00001090.htm

Safe, yet serious side effects do happen which is a contradiction:
Yellow fever vaccine is safe and highly effective. The protective effect (immunity) occurs within one week in 95% of people vaccinated. A single dose of vaccine provides protection for 10 years and probably for life. Over 300 million doses have been   given and serious side effects are extremely rare Fact Sheet No 100 Reviewed: August 1999 http://www.who.int/inf-fs/en/fact100.html

[2005] UK Government In Secret Payments For Childhood Vaccine Damage New figures show the Government has paid out £3.5 million since 1997 to families who claim their children fell sick after jabs. Over the years (since 1979), up to 30,000 people have battled for compensation, with only a handful winning their cases.

  In 1954 Eddy was fifty-one years old. Born in a mining town in West Virginia, she got a Ph.D. in 1927 from the University of Cincinnati and came to Washington during the Great Depression to work at the Hygienic Laboratory, as she continued to call it. Her job from then until she retired in 1973 was the safety testing of vaccines.
   
In 1954 the rush was on. Her lab had gotten samples of the inactivated polio vaccine to certify on a "due-yesterday" basis. "This was a product that had never been made before and they were going to use it right away,” she recalled. She and her staff worked around the clock. "We had eighteen monkeys. We inoculated these eighteen monkeys with each vaccine that came in. And we started getting paralyzed monkeys." She reported to her superiors that the lots were Cutter's, and sent pictures of the paralyzed monkeys along as well. "They were going to be injecting this thing into children."
    William Sebrell, the director of the NIH, stopped by the animal house where they were working, not to thank her for blowing the whistle but to ask if she and her co-workers wanted their children immunized with the vaccine, as it was in short supply. "I thanked him but said that my children had escaped polio so far and that I preferred to wait until the testing program was over before having them immunized," said Eddy. "Everyone there turned down the offer."
    She heard nothing more about her report and never got the photographs back. "They went ahead and released the vaccine anyway, a lot of it. The monkeys they just disregarded." [Book extract. The Health Century] Dr. Bernice E. Eddy, whose lab tests found that the Cutter vaccine had been improperly inactivated.

At Dallas (Texas), in 1919, sixty children were made seriously ill, and ten died as a result of injections of toxin-anti-toxin. The symptoms were pyrexia, vomiting and pain, inflammation of the skin and the formation of large vesicles filled with a clear fluid. The mixture injected had passed the " tests " of the New York State Board of Health. In 1924, at Concord and Bridgewater (Mass.) forty-five children were made seriously ill by similar treatment and many of these suffered terrible pain. In the same year, Dr. Lee Pattison reported in the British Medical Journal that, as a result of inoculation at the Crippled Children's Hospital at Sheffield, a boy &f eight had an inflamed and painful arm for three days, and a girl had a painful arm and fainted in bed. In September, 1923, seven children died at Baden (near Vienna) from inoculation with anti-diphtheritic serum. Yet, in the teeth of these facts Medical Officers of Health have the effrontery to assure the public that inoculation is free from danger! [1933] The Golden Calf by Charles W. Forward
