An Attorney’s View of Vaccines

justice will prevail

UPDATE:  Great news!  As of March 11, 2015, The states of Oregon and Washington have dropped pending legislation to eliminate nonmedical vaccination exemptions for residents (1, 2).  Thank you for sharing this powerful letter from attorney James Deal extensively via social media that no doubt helped galvanize the opposition that succeeded in taking down both of these proposed bills that would have stripped parents of their civil liberties to make informed, medical decisions for their own children!

Please keep sharing as there are many other states like California and Texas that have the very same type of legislation still in the works.


The report below was recently sent to every representative and senator in the Washington legislature and to all the newspapers in the state of Washington. Attorney James Deal believes that the personal or philosophical objection will be retained at the state level.

“They have all the money, but we have all the good ideas. If we persevere, we will succeed.”  ~ James Robert Deal, J.D.


Anti-vaxxers oppose all vaccines. Pro-vaxxers favor all vaccines. No, it is not that simple. Pro-vaxxers admit that certain groups should not receive certain vaccines and that vaccine injury does happen, although it is “rare”.

Most so-called anti-vaxxers actually favor some vaccines but oppose others. Most oppose giving many vaccines all at one time. Most say they are only asking for safer vaccines.

Amid the name calling, there is a reasonable middle ground. Dr. Mark Geier, M.D., Ph.D., associated with Johns Hopkins and the National Institutes of Health, author of over a hundred peer reviewed journal articles, is a moderate we should pay attention to. (Go to YouTube and search for “Dr. Mark Geier Thimerosal”.)

Dr. Geier supports the measles-only vaccine, but he opposes the MMR, measles-mumps-rubella vaccine, because it has caused confirmed adverse reactions and death. Likewise, Dr. Gregory Poland, of the Mayo Clinic holds that the MMR is largely ineffective.

It is lazy language to say that vaccines are “safe and effective”, because that implies that all vaccines are safe and effective for all people. In fact, some vaccines have done great harm. If you doubt this, read the findings of the Vaccine Court, which has paid out around $3.0 billion to children for adverse reactions which admits were caused by vaccines. Go to and search for “measles-mumps-rubella” or “influenza”.  And read the package inserts that come with vaccine boxes. You may also read them online at

In Europe only the polio vaccine is mandatory. Dr. Geier supports vaccination against polio. However, he is adamantly opposed to flu vaccines. The flu vaccine given almost universally uses Thimerosal as a preservative. Each dose of Thimerosal contains 25 micrograms of ethyl mercury. Multiplied by Avogadro’s Number, 25 mcg = 75 quadrillion atoms of mercury.

25 x 10-6 / 200 x 6.02 x 10-23

10-6 x 10-23 = 10-17

25 / 200 x 6.02 = .7525

.7525 x 10-17 = 7.5 x 10-16 = 75 x 10-15 =

75,000,000,000,000,000 = 75 quadrillion

The only safe amount of mercury is zero, and using mercury as a preservative is reckless, especially since it is given yearly, even to pregnant mothers, even though the package insert admits that the MMR has not been tested for fetal safety in pregnant women. Mercury passes through the placenta and into the fetus. There are flu vaccines which are mercury free.

The flu vaccine is big business, particularly the ones containing mercury. Some 300 million doses are sold, while only 20 million doses of all other vaccines are sold. In 1986 the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program made vaccine manufacturers immune from most liability, and in 2011 the Supreme Court twisted the plain language of the Vaccine Act to make vaccine manufacturers, hospitals, and physicians completely immune from absolutely ALL liability, reasoning that vaccines in general – using the language of the Court – are “unavoidably unsafe”.

Dr. Geier points out that all flu vaccines are illegal. All vaccines must pass two double blind tests for safety and effectiveness. Because a new vaccine is developed each year in advance of the flu season, and because each vaccine assumes a prediction of which strains of flue will be present, there is no time to two double blind studies, which would take several years.

Our vaccines can contain aluminum, formaldehyde, MSG, antibiotics, and monkey kidney cells. The effort to develop safe and effective vaccines should continue, however, we must admit that we are still at a primitive stage in the development of vaccines, which is why mandating vaccination makes little sense.

The unvaccinated are blamed for spreading disease, however, every person injected with the MMR and other attenuated live virus vaccines develops a vaccine version of the disease, sheds viruses, and can infect others. It is not only the unvaccinated who are spreading measles, which is another reason why mandating vaccination makes little sense.

Measles is not a trifling malady, however, it is not Ebola. Measles cases and deaths from measles declined sharply before the measles vaccine was introduced in 1963. Relatively few die from measles.

Since 1986, Health & Human Services reports 669 deaths from the DTP, 84 deaths from flu vaccines, 80 deaths from the DTaP, 57 deaths from the MMR, 54 deaths from the Hepatitis B vaccine, and many more non-fatal adverse reactions. The science of vaccination is still in a primitive stage, and it is inappropriate for the state to force injection of a possibly harmful drug on behalf of mega-corporations which are completely immune from all liability for adverse reactions.

Further, one who is vaccinated sheds viruses, and so one can be infected not only by those who contract a wild case of measles but also by those recently vaccinated. Moreover, the MMR is not particularly effective “In an October 2011 outbreak in Canada, over 50% of the 98 individuals had received two doses of measles vaccine”.

The Los Angeles Times and the Everett Herald printed an article entitled “Vaccine ignorance proving deadly and contagious”. It was written not by physicians or scientists but by prominent members of the Council on Foreign Relations. It contains numerous inaccuracies – scientific, historical, and legal.

Thinking people support vaccines which are safe, effective, and necessary. Conversely, thinking people should oppose those vaccines which are not safe, not effective, or not necessary.

Law school taught me to break a question down into its component parts: Which vaccines are safe, effective, and necessary, and for whom? How deadly is the disease to be prevented? How likely are adverse reactions and how bad can they be? The CFR authors are uncritical cheer leaders for the $30 billion per year vaccine business, exhorting us to take all recommended vaccines unquestioningly and by the dozens and dozens.

The authors repeat slanders made against Dr. Andrew Wakefield, which were completely false. A recent NOVA special, “Vaccines – Calling the Shots”, repeats these now-disproven slanders, a case of lazy journalism. Recall that Wakefield wrote in the Lancet in 1998 that colitis and autism spectrum  disorders are linked to the combined measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine then in use.

Wakefield was denounced as a vaccine denier, although he supported and still supports the single dose measles vaccine, as well as other vaccines. He only opposed the MMR. Multiple vaccines given simultaneously can be more harmful than single vaccines. For questioning the safety of one vaccine, Wakefield was “lynched” by GlaxoSmithCline and the medical establishment. Wakefield’s results have been replicated in at least 28 studies done by scientists in other countries. Further, Wakefield has great insight in how to treat children who have had adverse vaccine reactions by treating the gastro-intestinal disease that accompanies adverse reactions.

Wakefield was expelled from the medical profession in Great Britain, however, John Walker-Smith, one of the co-authors of the offending 1998 study, challenged his expulsion and was recently reinstated, an indication that Wakefield could be reinstated if he applied. Wakefield works in Texas as a researcher and is suing Brian Deer, Fiona Godlee and the British Medical Journal for falsely accusing him of fraud.

The CFR authors also seem to be unaware that Wakefield was further vindicated recently when Dr. William Thompson of the CDC “came out”. Thompson was one of the authors of a CDC study which denied any causal link between vaccines and autism. Thompson admitted that in a 2004 article he and other authors had intentionally excluded already collected data, data which would have reversed their published conclusion that there is no vaccine-autism link. The mainstream media has glossed over the story of Wakefield’s vindication and Thomson’s confession.

A mother is not a vaccine denier if she questions the safety of a vaccine containing mercury, aluminum, MSG, antibiotics, eggs, or formaldehyde. Or Beta HCG hormone. Or the urabi virus . She is not a denier if her child is frail or has already had an adverse vaccine reaction and she chooses to opt her child out. She is not a denier if she questions giving children 49 injections of 14 vaccines by age six, including a vaccine at birth for hepatitis B, a disease usually infecting IV drug users. Nor is she a denier if she declines the CDC recommendation that she take the flu vaccine (containing mercury) when she is pregnant, even though the flu vaccine is not tested for safety for pregnant women and fetuses and the FDA advises it be used “only if clearly needed”.

Most are not harmed by vaccines, but some are. For proof read the decisions of the Vaccine Court, which has paid out some $3.0 billion and has acknowledged that specific vaccines have caused specific harms. See the disclosure inserts which comes in vaccine boxes. Ask your pharmacist for copies. Multi-dose flu vaccine contains a whopping 25 micrograms of mercury per dose, included as a preservative. That’s 74 quadrillion atoms of mercury. The single dose version contains under 1.0 micrograms, only 3 quadrillion atoms – still too much for me. The mercury in the flu vaccine passes through the placenta and is especially toxic to fetus and infant because their cells are dividing rapidly. Mercury affects cell division. The use of mercury as a preservative should be banned.

Some vaccines are ineffective. Discover Magazine reported that 73 percent of kids aged 7 to 10 who caught pertussis in 2012 in Washington had been fully vaccinated. The same is true for the measles vaccine. A child vaccinated with a live virus vaccine experiences a mild version of the infection and is thus contagious and infects others. Outbreaks of measles and pertussis probably come from the vaccinated, not from the unvaccinated. The artificial immunity conferred by vaccines wears off, and boosters are required, making vaccines a cash machine that generates $30 billion yearly.

A reasonable question to ask is this: If vaccines worked, those who favor indiscriminant vaccination should not object to those who choose not to be vaccinated.

The problem worsened in 1986. Before that date vaccine liability had always been decided according to state law regardless of which court the case was brought in. 1986 Congress federalized all vaccine liability claims. A law was passed requiring that all claims for vaccine harm go to a special “Vaccine Court”, where there was and is no jury and no pre-trial discovery. The statute of limitations is tricky and short, and the burden to prove a specific vaccination harmed a child is arbitrarily difficult. Vaccine makers are shieldedagainst general liability and even for badly designing a vaccine. Claims are paid out of a fund built up with a tax on each vaccine dose sold. This has led vaccine makers to become reckless, to do insufficient testing of vaccines, and to industrialize the vaccine business.

Before 1986, vaccination had been a technology aimed at the most deadly and contagious diseases. Vaccines were to be put into use only after careful testing. Vaccines were and are needed when a potentially fatal disease progresses so fast the body cannot respond before death occurs. Because adverse reactions are inevitable, vaccines should not be used to prevent diseases which are rarely fatal. However, vaccine makers, newly exempt from all liability, turned necessary vaccination against the most deadly diseases into a mass-production money machine targeted against any and every conceivable disease.

Vaccine makers ship vaccines banned in the West to the Third World, such as the urabi strain MMR vaccine, the dangerous partially attenuated oral polio vaccine used in Pakistan, and a tetanus vaccine which causes miscarriages – none of which would inspire one to trust what vaccine makers say.

All drugs and all vaccines involve some risk which the CDC admits in its assurances that serious harm or death is rare. If the risk of taking the vaccine is greater than the risk of enduring the disease, one has the right to refuse to take the vaccine. Adults can refuse vaccination for themselves. They are the guardians of their children. They know their children’s frailties and previous bad experiences with vaccines. They have the right to opt their children out. If vaccinations work, there should be no objection if some choose not to be vaccinated.

Washington has recently made it more difficult for parents to decline vaccination for their children. Unvaccinated children can be sent home if there is an outbreak of a childhood disease in his or her school, which is odd since the CDC admits, in the case of pertussis, it is vaccinated children who are spreading the disease.

Despite all the evidence that some vaccines cause serious harm, many so-called experts exhort us that all vaccines are safe and effective, and most people stubbornly believe them. Why? Mark Twain explained it best “It’s much easier to fool someone than to convince them they have been fooled.

Examine the evidence for yourself and do your own thinking. Administration of vaccine in mass quantities should not be mandatory, and some vaccines should be banned outright.

The connection between the fluoride scam and the vaccine scam is that they are both run by mega corporations without ethical standards.

We should not be afraid to follow the science where ever it logically goes and be outspoken on other contaminations, such as Roundup, which I just learned is sprayed on non-GMO wheat as a dessicant, so most non-organic bread is loaded with Roundup.

    Hi Sarah, Interesting post. I find all this talk about vaccines interesting. I want to know what are the risks? Are they necessary? I feel too many people just do what they are told but never question things. I thought you would find this article interesting Jon Rappoport interview of ex vaccine researcher

    “highest levels of the medical cartel, vaccines are a top priority because they cause a weakening of the immune system. I know that may be hard to accept, but it’s true. The medical cartel, at the highest level, is not out to help people, it is out to harm them, to weaken them”. Sadly it’s true!

    We should not question the “safety and efficacy” of vaccines.

    Instead we should question the “risks and failures” of vaccines.

    Notice a difference?

    I’m still on the fence about some vaccines, and I don’t take them..
    As for my Grandkids , one had them , one had there Dr. give them in small does over a few months, and one has not had them at all..

    If you might want any type of vaccine, you have to tell your Dr. you do not want the one’s with Mercury.
    Since mercury is a preservative, then your Dr. will have to keep it in there Frig, which they do not want to do, but they have to if you ask..

    That said, when I was a child, Polio was ramped, and allot of kids where not allowed to go to public summing pools etc..It was believed it spread more in that area!!
    When the Polio vaccine came out, and most every child got the shot, we did not see polio after that!

      I’ve got news for you. Telling a doctor you don’t want thimerosal containing vaccines depends on one believing doctors are ethical where vaccines are concerned and whether they have been taught that they “know best,” and have the right to override a parental request. They OFTEN DO.

      I requested – no – DEMANDED thimerosal-free vaccines for my son in March of 2001. The pediatrician lied about the ingredients and gave them anyway. My son changed immediately – losing all speech and affect. To me, it looked like he had a stroke. When you NOTICE, they make snide comments and try to make YOU question your own sanity. Even the following morning, when my son did not wake me – when I found him sitting awkwardly in his crib – when I found he did not respond to the sound of my voice – when I found upon picking him up that his body went LIMP like a rag doll in my arms – when I called the doctor frantically – I was yelled at and continually told I was “imagining things,” and that I was just an over-protective mother. It took us MONTHS to find help and answers. I still thought she had been honest and that she had not given thimerosal, but in November of that year, it was suggested to me, so I confronted her. I asked if she had indeed given this substance to my child. She said “Yes” and she LAUGHED about it.

      I called a lawyer and he said we STILL could not sue her. He said we had to win in”vaccine court” first and only then could we sue her. We spent ten years with the government making us jump through hoops designed to make us give up. When so many of us would not give up, they had the Supreme Court throw all our cases out – anyone listing “autism” as an adverse event was THROWN OUT – even though it was only one of the myriad listed adverse effects.

      My son was diagnosed with “heavy metal Intoxication” a year later. He was also diagnosed with a metabolic disorder NOS. They were SO SURE it was “Wilson’s Disease” – a genetic disorder in which a person cannot regulate copper in the body, but it was NOT Wilson’s – no it was another result of over-vaccinating infants with seriously toxic vaccines and a consequence of giving more than one vaccine in a day(when there have never been any synergistic safety studies to do so). So when they don’t want to admit what causes it they call it “Metabolic disorder NOS.” Then he was diagnosed with an “Immune disorder NOS.” From the time of those four shots, he became CHRONICALLY sick.

      For NINE YEARS, he had at least one infection (often two) with a fever EVERY TWO WEEKS. In the now fourteen years which have passed, I lost count years ago of the incidences of ear infections, burst ear drums, bronchitis, strep, staph, cellulitis, strange rashes, Scarlet Fever, Scarlitina and other infections. He has had pneumonia NINE times, and meningitis TWICE.

      For the first 3.5 years after it happened, he had multiple absence seizures and episodes of tremors and nystagmus several times a day.

      Since the reaction, he began having serious gut pain. Often, he would scream inconsolably for HOURS. When we sought mainstream medical help, they would say to us, “Well…he HAS autism” as if a child who displays autistic-like behaviors could not possibly have anything medically wrong with them. He was diagnosed with “Gut Disorder NOS.” He suffered debilitating constipation and wound up with “Mega Colon.”

      After the reaction, he could no longer even fight the bacteria introduced from a mosquito bite or any other insect bite. He will develop radiating STAPH form every bite and this quickly turns into cellulitis, putting him at risk for MRSA, septicemia, and even death.

      When he was diagnosed with HMI by the head of pediatric neurology at a prominent metropolitan hospital, he said to us, “Gee, I’m SO sorry….I thought they took that stuff out of vaccines. but you’ve just got to understand…by mass vaccinating, we are saving so many, but there are going to be LOSSES. Your child is one of them, and you just need to go home and accept it.” Could you? What is our recourse? A JOKE of a government program? Where is JUSTICE?

      So my child – my one and only child – the only male child in the family to carry on the family name was SACRIFICED upon the altar of the vaccine gods. And those who poisoned him from the doctors on up do not give a damn. You can tell A LOT about the integrity of any entity by how it treats its “losses.” My son’s care to date has cost in excess of 1.5 million dollars in OOP expenses and lost wages. He will need some level of care all his life. what happens to him once we are gone? Who will pay for that care?

      THIS is what a parent risks when they allow their child to be vaccinated. It can be worse. We know that. We know many damaged children who have grand mal seizures often. We know many who’ve had children die post vaccination.

      Even with all this, I am not “anti-vaccination.” I believe we should not vaccinate for benign illnesses but work to better understand how to treat these illnesses while keeping natural lifelong immunity intact. Vaccines – like antibiotics – should be used only when there is CLEAR and PRESENT DANGER. Laws protecting vaccine makers from liability should be repealed. The FDA and CDC need a complete overhaul and the DARK MONEY should be OUT. There must to be CHECKS and BALANCES between government, science, the medical field, the pharmaceutical industry as a whole, and the vaccine industry. Until such time, NO ONE should be forced to take a vaccine and PARENTS should be the final authority.

      Had I known a tenth of what I know now about vaccines and the industry, my child would have never received one, and then today he would be having his first crush, hanging out with lots of friends and thinking about driving and getting his first job. Instead, he has spent his childhood fighting his way back inch by inch. Once you give a vaccine, it can NEVER be taken back.

      I believe the right to refuse the injection of a medical drug or biologic is a fundamental inalienable human right.

      I post this so that all may know DOCTORS LIE. SCIENTISTS LIE. They have been taught – largely in an education funded by the pharmaceutical industry – to perpetuate an AGENDA, and our children are nothing to them but pawns in that agenda.

      Now is the time and the line must be drawn here. If the public cannot see the value in guaranteeing MEDICAL FREEDOM and the sanctity of parental rights, w shall lose ourselves and our children – body and soul- to an out of control vaccine industry. They have immunity from litigation. Now they want forced markets. There are 200 more vaccines in production. When will enough be enough? When there are no more boys left cognizant enough to defend our country? By then it will be too late.

    It’s too bad that Dr. Geier isn’t aware of the contamination of polio vaccine with SV40.

      Even the CDC admitted that 100 million Americans were injected with a contaminated polio vaccine that contained a cancer causing monkey virus.

      Got vaccines = Got cancer?

        I’ve just learned about this, it’s deeply unnerving. They are poisoning the masses without question still today. I’m glad this lawyer is making a few waves, making vaccines mandatory is like forcing people to eat gmo. I feel awfully triggered by all the harsh name calling and division in most vaccine conversations. I can only imagine how you feel Sarah but thank you for publishing the information that you do.

    He has negative exponents where it should be positives in the calculations showing number of atoms of mercury. Avogadro’s number is 6.02×10^23(not -23). So the 75 quadrillion would be 10^15, not -15. Sorry, just noticed right off, so I’m sure pro-vax folks saying anti-vaxers aren’t listening to “scientific consensus” could unfortunately use that as fuel.
