Final Argument – Vaccines – To Remain Optional

The choices we make today are important and can continue to impact us in the future. As light as the prick can feel the substance injected directly into your blood is weighty. Vaccines have ingredients and side effects that have been the cause of many controversial debates over the years, leaving many with questions and a drive to find the truth before it’s too late. Vaccines began with ground up scabs of the infected blown up the nose so the body produces antibodies. Now we have large multibillion-dollar corporations at the head of production and distribution making claims that have been proven false. The choice on whether or not to vaccinate should always be just that, a choice.



Looking at a vaccine packing slip you will be shocked at what you find. toxic-vaccine-adjuvantThimerosal(mercury), formaldehyde, aluminium phosphate, MSG, human album, and bovine serum.Each of these ingredients when in contact with you on its own can cause serious side effects, when these ingredients are injected directly into the blood with little filtration it can cause severe side effects.The EPA maximum safety limit for Thimerosal is 5mcg, the amount in one flu vaccine is 25mcg. This combined with Aluminium phosphate is a concoction that can cause immune and neurological disorders, Dr Mark R. Geier’s study proves link to autism. Bovine serum and human albumin both have the possibility to cause autoimmune disorders such as lupus. Aluminium can cause brain damage, formaldehyde is carcinogenic, these are ingredients in some of our well-known vaccines today such as Hepatitis B, Tetanus and Polio vaccines. Also, Attenuvax, MMRvax, Gardasil HPV which are all made by Merck.



12hours old and a baby on the vaccine schedule is already battling a foreign contaminant via vaccine, often this is a pyrrhic victory. Not only does the contaminant hinder the development of the immune system, but also the manner in which it is introduced triggers an abnormal immune response which has the potential to cause allergic disease’s such as asthma. Dr Brian Boyd explains further. Surveys looking at the health of vaccinated versus unvaccinated done by practitioners and volunteers (No official academic research has beenvaccination-vs-unvaccinated done on this topic as it has been deemed unethical), show findings that unvaccinated children have a lower rate of having asthma, sinusitis, skin conditions and Autism. 250,000 people die from asthma globally each year compared to 114,900 from measles. Also, asthma is one of the top reasons children miss school, this impacting a person for the rest of their life and can be fatal. Autism, once almost unheard of, now an increasing occurrence with the FDA confirming this is a possibly from the Tetanus vaccine, which most receive around 4 months-old, along with 5 other vaccines in that same month. By the age of 14 the average child, based on CDC’s recommended vaccines, will have had 49 doses of 14 vaccines, seems a bit extreme.



Figure 1

Private multibillion-dollar corporations such as Merck, would have us believe that vaccines are what ended these epidemics. However, as figure 1 illustrates, the significant decline in the disease happened before the vaccine was introduced. These companies spend millions on pro-vaccine advertising campaigns so that society will continue to purchase vaccines as they believe it is what is best for the community as this is all they see. The Vaccine injury compensation program is in place for those who are injured or die from vaccines. The compensation is often at no cost to the company and in the rare occasion that there is a cost, a few million has little effect on the company’s profits. Merck, the company that makes a lot of its profits from the MMR vaccine which is usually prescribed to most children at the age of 12-18month and again at 2-6years old is currently under trial for manipulation test results. Merck states that the MMR vaccines have a 95% effectiveness. The FDA states that to be able to sell a Vaccine its effective needs to be 95% and above. However, before Merck added the rabbit antibodies to the trials the effectiveness sat around 79%. Companies that develop vaccines do their own testing, the FDA doesn’t currently have a lab for testing the effectiveness of new public health products making this an easily accessible area due to vaccines being a public health measure. Former Merck virologist Stephen Krahling states that Merck knew that the vaccines effectiveness was much lower than what they claimed so they produced a booster which produced additional revenue. Extra revenue which doctors receive via Bonuses to prescribe these vaccines.



Those who choose not to vaccinate prevent complete eradication of the disease. Unfortunately, infections still occur in those who have received a vaccine, such as the negative-lightoutbreak of Mumps in 2006 where 77% of people who were vaccinated with the MMR vaccine still contracted the virus. Due to vaccines not having 100% effectiveness, some companies falsifying test results and vaccines often not having a life-time expectancy, those who are vaccinated are still contracting the disease regardless. There have also been cases where the live virus in a vaccine has infected the individual with the disease it was meant to prevent, making them contagious as well.


In conclusion, vaccines should always be a choice as there are a lot more to them than just simply being injected with a cure. We should always have the choice if something has the potential to cause harm or death. That if vaccine reactions were rare there would be no need for programs such as Vaccine injury compensation program. That these diseases had a significant decline before the vaccine was introduced shows that vaccines aren’t the only way of fighting a disease and more research is needed into the health of those vaccinated and unvaccinated. While large privately owned corporations are in charge of their own testing and regulations are weak due to vaccines being a public health measure, vaccines should not be compulsory.
