CDC Adds 3 More Vaccines to Childhood Immunization Schedule

by Sarah VaccinationComments: 68

cdc vax schedule 2016_miniUp, up and away!

This pretty much describes the CDC Childhood Immunization Schedule since 1950.

On February 1, 2016, the insanity continued as the CDC hiked the childhood immunization schedule even further by adding another 3 vaccinations and lowering the age for the first HPV jab (Gardasil) to 9 years old. The total is now an outrageous 74 doses (53 injections) by age 17, an increase of 24X since 1950.

Have our children become pin cushions of profit for the drug companies? Here’s the breakdown. You decide.

  • In 1950, there were 3 childhood vaccines typically given when a child entered school.
  • In 1983, there were 10 recommended vaccines by the age of 6 years old (24 doses, 7 injections, 4 oral doses for polio).
  • In 2010, the CDC vax schedule totaled 68 doses with more than half given by the time a child was only a year and a half old.
  • In 2016, the schedule has increased to 74 doses by age 17 with 53 injections and 3 oral doses of rotavirus.

These rapid increases in the vaccine schedule mean that a 6 month old baby born today would receive over 2.5 times the number of vaccines as the maximum permitted for a 6 year old back in the 1980’s.  And, by the time that same baby was 12 years old, he/she would have received over 7X the number of vaccines as a child born 30 years ago.

Predictably, children today are suffering from autoimmune disorders, behavioral problems, and physical disabilities at a rate growing in lockstep with the skyrocketing number of shots.

One in every two children suffers from a chronic problem today and the situation is only growing worse with each passing year.

Here’s the rub.

The CDC will never stop adding to the immunization schedule as long as pharmaceutical manufacturers are protected from ALL liability of injury and death. There are currently 271 new vaccines in the pipeline just waiting to be finalized and gain approval from the FDA (1).  There is absolutely no incentive to make existing or new vaccines safe or keep the schedule at a reasonable level since the passage of the 1986 Vaccine Injury Act (2).

Will you be following the newly revised CDC Childhood Immunization Schedule or have you concluded as I did 18 years ago that the risks to your child’s long term health from following this insane vaccination schedule far outweigh the small risks of not vaccinating (3)?

CDC Immunization Schedule Changes for 2016

For those that want to know the exact changes to the CDC immunization schedule, here are the most notable changes as outlined by Medscape:

  • In the 2016 CDC immunization chart, a row has been added for the new meningococcal B vaccine. It contains a purple bar denoting the recommendation to vaccinate certain high-risk persons aged 10 years and older and a blue bar denoting the recommendation for administration to non-high-risk groups subject to individual clinical decision making for individuals aged 16 through 23 years (the preferred age range is 16 – 18 years).
  • For human papillomavirus immunization, the new vaccine nomenclature has been changed to “9vHPV,” to denote Merck’s Gardasil 9, which was licensed in December 2014 to replace the prior 4-valent version. On the chart, the HPV row contains an additional purple bar from age 9 to 10 years, denoting a recommendation to vaccinate high-risk children in that group, including those with a history of sexual abuse.

    Not only does the CDC keep adding vaccines to the schedule but I’ve noticed lately that it is changing the disease stats as well. For instance Sarah linked to a CDC page previously that says “Approximately 95% of persons infected with polio will have no symptoms. About 4-8% of infected persons have minor symptoms, such as fever, fatigue, nausea, headache, flu-like symptoms, stiffness in the neck and back, and pain in the limbs, which often resolve completely.” This used to be what the old polio info page said too. But the new polio info page (http://www.cdc.gov/polio/about/index.htm) says “Most people who get infected with poliovirus (about 72 out of 100) will not have any visible symptoms. About 1 out of 4 people with poliovirus infection will have flu-like symptoms.” There is a BIG DIFFERENCE between 95% asymptomatic and 72% asymptomatic, just like there is a HUGE DIFFERENCE between 4-8% get flu like symptoms and 25% get flu like symptoms. It makes me wonder why, all of a sudden, the CDC is quietly changing its disease stats. I’ve noticed changes for other diseases too, like measles, but can’t quote the changes as I can’t find the older pages to reference. Does the CDC have some agenda to make these diseases look more dangerous to try and deter people from not vaccinating? For me it’s just another reason not to trust government “health” agencies.

    Sarah, my 8-year-old daughter is unvaccinated. We will be moving to a developing country later this year. This particular country still sees thousands of cases of measles each year. There are also many cases of tetanus, TB and meningitis. I truly don’t know what to do. In this case, would you say the risks of getting the vaccines are worth it vs. the risk of getting these diseases?

      It is certainly up to you to weigh the decision as a parent, but from my calculations, the risks of serious complications from the diseases you mention are far less than the health risks from the vaccines themselves. I personally am the type of person who plays the odds on this one hence why I don’t vax and never have. By the way, I have 3 healthy children (the oldest is almost 18 .. never had a single shot) with no auto-immune issues or other health or physical problems. I don’t know many (maybe none?) families that vax that can say the same if they have several children. Look around … the kids with the fewest issues are the unvaxed ones! Oh, and don’t you vaxing parents email me that you have a 2 year old who is vaxed and is “perfectly healthy”. Email me when they are 18 and have had ALL the CDC required shots before you blah blah blah about how “safe” vaccines are. My guess is that fully vaxed 18 year old will have at least some perhaps serious autoimmune issues that have developed by that time.

        My three children, ages 21, 19, and 15 were vaccinated until my youngest developed autism at 4. We now are dealing with multiple food allergies, chronic fatigue and pain, ADD, dyslexia. as well as the autism. I was fool enough to allow my 19 year old to be a part of a program introducing multiple vaccines in one injection. What I wouldn’t give to do it over again! I understand now that my own poor immune system wasn’t sufficient to pass a strong system on to my children. The insult of those vaccines to their faulty immune system was just too much.

      If you will move to a place where there are a lot of infectious illnesses, learn how to manage them – let the fevers run their course (instead of Tylenol), vitamin C protocol for Whooping Cough, vitamins A/D for measles, etc. If you dig around the internet a bit, you can find these protocols as well as ways of lowering fever that don’t involve drugs. Also, some folks are using homeopathy instead of vaccines.

    While the vaccine list is extensive….these are diseases which will KILL YOU if you contract them or the disease state that can follow. The “minimal risk” to an individual child who does not receive immunizations is ONLY minimal as long as the MAJORITY of individuals around that child IS IMMUNIZED. This is called herd immunity. As more parents choose to not immunize the risk of disease AND DEATH increases exponentially. By choosing to not immunize, you are placing your own child AND the entire population at risk for that disease. PLEASE speak with your pediatricians before making this EXTREMELY important decision!

      Wow … you have really swallowed the Kool-Aid in one big gulp, haven’t you? The risk of these diseases is TINY and the risk of complications even TINIER compared with the huge risk of destroying your immune system and having the burden of autoimmune hell for the rest of your life if you vaccinate with these toxic shots. Don’t do Vegas, my friend. You will lose as you obviously have no idea about how to play the odds in your favor.

      Julie, do you even hear yourself??

      If anything you said were true, most of the adult population wouldn’t even be here!! LOL

      My generation grew up with chicken pox being a normal part of childhood. My parents grew up with measles, mumps AND whooping cough. Tetanus isn’t even a communicable disease and the whooping cough vaccine is a complete joke!! What did your own parents have as kids and LIVE through? Grandparents?? Even the dreaded polio was mostly asymptomatic, meaning most people who got it, didn’t even know they had it!

      I hope you find the time to do some actual research instead before you end up learning the hard way like so many already have…

    I live in Illinois, where it is also mandatory for school. That being said, you can still at least choose to spread them out so they don’t get more than one at a time, and influenza is an optional vaccination, I believe HPV is also. Choosing to leave these out eliminates 23 vaccinations!

    This is insane. I mean just insane.

    I started public school in 1983. You know how many vaccines I was required to have for the duration of my schooling? ONE. (Measles). Just one.

    The only other diseases that I ever caught were chicken pox (harmless) and the occasional flu (also harmless). I never contracted rotavirus, whooping cough, etc., etc. Nobody I know did.

    And yet the CDC thinks these diseases are so dire and such an epidemic that we MUST get the jab?

    Insane.

    I am in my 50’s and was raised in rural Wisconsin. My mother was a Jehovah Witness and she didn’t believe in immunizations. I don’t recall ever going to the doctor to get any. They offered them free at our school and she said “if you want to get them it’s up to you.” What ever happened to the rule where you could opt out because of religious objections, like you can with blood transfusions? Is that long gone. We have lost so many of our rights in this country it’s truly terrifying. Is there anything that can be done? Why isn’t anyone out there advocating for parents and their children. This is criminal insanity!! So sad. All so someone can make money.

    Sadly, there is a depopulation agenda initiated by Bill Gates and other “powers that be” who wants our world population to decline drastically – but a long, slow death will be profitable, and vaccines are top on the list to bring this about. We are sheep being feared into this scam. The one given to teen age girls will greatly increase infertility and looks like they will now start that vaccine at age 9. My son was affected after his 18 month MMR. These are the biggest crimes against humanity and yes, it is up to parents to spread the word for the safety of our children and generations to come. God Help Us!!

    I’ve just discovered this article (came here to read your collagen info!) and want to add to this discussion!!
    I’m in Australia where our vaccination laws have just become tighter…..all children must now get vaccinated as per the schedule or the parents will receive less child welfare support. Now that’s fine if both parents work but not if one doesn’t (i.e. Homeschooling) then money can become an issue although I know that won’t change most parents minds about getting their kids jabbed.
    I have 7 children, all unvaccinated, all breastfed, all fed on healthy vegetarian whole food and all without allergies. The oldest 3 had chicken pox when younger and the younger 4 had whooping cough 2 years ago which I sadly resorted to fixing with antibiotics (we have never used any before or any other kind of chemical). I had 7 home births and my midwife had no problems with my Vit K objections and encouraged my to eat Vit K rich foods instead. My children are aged 13 to 29 and some have never seen a doctor while some have been there for various injurlies and then of course there is the usual tetanus shot discussion! We have managed to avert all of those! My oldest daughter has two little ones now and they are also not vaccinated although it’s getting harder to slip through the loop with our new national vaccination register. I’m horrified after looking at your chart, at the amount of toxins that are pumped into the bodies of completely defenseless newborns – surely in years to come, humans will look back in history and think we were archaic and sadistic to do that to our children.
    All this to say that it is possible to raise healthy disease free unvaccinated children and produce healthy allergy free adults!

      The Tdap vaccine is being investigated as a cause of microcephaly rather than the ZICA virus since ZICA and Microcephaly emerged from Brazil when their government made it mandatory that all pregnant women be administered the Tdap vaccine.

    Hi there! Have a question and then seeking advice. Do u know at what point 3 MMR’s were required? I grew up in 80’s and had to have 3, but last wasn’t until entering college. Ok now for some advice. My 2 oldest are vaccinated, been sick more than I’d like. My youngest is 7 months and not vaccinated. We did some research before his birth but I’ve done more since then. I didn’t however research Vit K and now I regret it. I’m afraid I’ve damaged his immune system. I also received allergy shots throughout pregnancy and for about 4-5 months once he was born. I’m afraid that has added to it. Even though we researched vaccines, I am just recently learning about food and supplements. We have a limited income to the point that I’m on the WIC program (but he gets breastmilk!). What they say is healthy actually isn’t. Here is what I can get and organics are not allowed in many cases. dph.georgia.gov/sites/dph.georgia.gov/files/WIC_Resources/WIC_web_2016__ENG_2.pdf

    Thankfully a brand of the baby food (Beechnut) is Non-GMO except their meats. I’m thinking I may put up all this processed food off of WIC for dire emergencies!! But we continue to drink this milk because of price of raw milk and this is free.

    So, I know I can make own baby food, but the limited income keeps us from buying organics especially meats and dairy. So much in WIC is also processed and they say low-fat milk is healthier than whole milk. I’m hoping to write them and asking to provide me with nothing but fruits and veggies. But wanted any research you had on these products listed to give to them.

    Also, I think all this research is stressing me and I’m not sure what changes to make first..food, plastics, chemicals, supplements, etc. I want to do everything now (even though money isnt there) and i dont know where to start with baby steps. The older kids are involved in church activities where they are provided snacks and a meal. Definitely not organic and likely highly processed, but I dont want them to refuse food every week especially in the church setting. They dont understand why sugar is bad. And even though we have been fortunate enough to raise out our own beef, the hubby doesnt understand why all of a sudden grain is bad for them (this is only occassional) and why the chickens we want have to be free range. He grew up on the farm and they fed their chickens corn! He wants to do the same for a pig (found a good deal so our daughters can show it)! He doesnt understand the whole processed food thinking if its whole grain, its healthy. He is a type 2 diabetic and I’d love to get him off all medicines, but I can’t get him to understand!!

    Anyway, enough on my venting!! Any advice and research you have would be great!! I just don’t want to be stressed anymore with all this research and trying to become healthy. Being stressed isn’t healthy!! Thx!!

      Shalimar, in reading your inquiry, I was getting stressed out. Take a deep breath and relax.You sound like you are a really good mom and want to do the best for your children. You are fortunate to have WIC to cover the essentials for your kids. Go ahead and make your own baby food, wash fruits and veggies well. If you are concerned with grains, make your own bread. Read what you want on the internet but take each article with a grain of salt, everyone has their own OPINION and much of what is on the net is opinion. Then see a nutritionist affiliated with your local hospital. If price is an issue, watch for a public service meeting on childrens’ diets that is given by a nutritionist. But most of all relax, you are doing a great job for your kids.

      The fact that you are aware is great. It sounds like you’re able to raise a lot of your own food. That’s good too. It’s time to learn to garden and can your own food. Especially when money is an issue, just take baby steps. Yes, your beef is fed grain, but you know the lives of your animals, so you are already ahead of the game! Today’s plastics are not near as bad as the stuff made even 5 years ago. So, do what you can and try not to stress about the rest. I would suggest to buy canning jars whenever you have a little extra money. They are so versatile. You can store, cook, can, drink from them. Often you can find them at the Goodwill stores. All you have to do it buy new metal lids and screw bands. Get on Facebook and look for the gardening FB pages. I find that Backwoods Home magazine is a great resource. Good Luck to you! I wish you well!

    I agree that our children are getting more vaccines than ever. However, what I quoted above is very confusing. You don’t compare the same ages over all the dates- one refers to school age, then the next is by 6 years and then 18 months and then 17 years. You don’t compare equally across all the statistics the number of doses given or the number of actual shots. It’s very confusing when your data on one hand is only for 18 months and then the next it’s for 17 years.

    Sarah, I have a 9 and an almost-5-year old, who we chose not to be vaccinated since birth. I breastfed both for 3 years and neither had any diseases, sicknesses, etc. My husband has been adamant from the beginning that our children would not be vaccinated, ever. I was on board with it and still am, but with the passing of new legislation in California, I must have my children vaccinated if I want them in public schools. I cannot afford private schools or have them homeschooled, so I took both to the pediatrician and had their first dose of vaccinations. I had the hardest time watching them getting the shots….I started it since my son is entering kindergarten in the fall, they wouldn’t have registered him if I didn’t have proof that I started the vaccination process…What do other people do in California? No more signing waivers – like I did every year so far in schools -, no more exemptions….I feel helpless, and still feel reluctant to have the remaining 2 rounds of megadoses before the next school year starts. Thank you for your answer!

      You are in a difficult spot Agnes. You have to decide for yourself what to do under this new law, which I think will be repealed and/or declared unconstitutional in months/years to come, but in the meantime I would strongly suggest homeschooling or move to another state. You will never forgive yourself since you are aware of the high risks of shots to a child’s long term health if you catch up on those shots and your children’s health declines into an autoimmune situation.

      You can also find either a homeopath or naturopath in your area that can give your children a homeopathic remedy to diminish the bad effects of the vaccines. However, I have read that the HPV vaccine is the MOST insidious vaccine per the homeopaths out their treating kids. At all costs please avoid that one.

      Am so disturbed by the most recent Wise Traditions podcast on the topic of vaccines. Highly recommend that everyone listen to it if they haven’t already and also watch the documentary about vaccines called The Greater Good.

      I was hesitant to vaccinate our child, but hubby and I are on opposite sides of the issue, and so we have had our 2 yr old vaccinated from birth. And, now, with the CA mandate, we don’t have a choice unless we move out of state, as I don’t think homeschooling will be an option for us.

      Found a couple of ways you can detox your child gently after they receive a vaccine.

      Will definitely try to stay more up to date on what is going on at the national level regarding parental rights over vaccines, and try to be more involved in contacting politicians with my concerns.

    To Elizabeth – I was allowed to get my own oral Vit K before my child was born. I brought it with me to the hospital and administered it on my own. I purchased it from a birth center. I don’t know if different states have different requirements, but this worked for me. Of course, I had to note that I “declined” the K shot for hospital paper work purposes, but I had peace of mind to do it this way.

    In the mid-60s, our vaccine schedule in Canada was a bit heavier than that of US kids in 1983. The difference being we had the small pox vaccination in addition to DTP, OPV & MMR. So approx. 34 Doses (7 oral & 12 injected) over 16 years.

    From what I can tell from the Canadian Immunization Guide, kids in BC today get 46 doses over 12 years. They get 6 that we never had: Rota, Influenza, Hep B, HPV and Pneu. If I read the guide correctly kids here get almost 30 fewer vacs than American kids!

    Hello Sarah,

    I am 8.5 months pregnant and have been researching vaccinations for months now. I am happy to say that I think I am finally starting to make progress with my husband, but he isn’t entirely on board. My question is this; are there any vaccinations that actually make sense to get? I can see by looking through the ingredients lists of the vaccines that they all seem to have a slew of unnecessary toxic additives and that all have risks (which from what I notice in most cases, children have a higher chance of having a reaction from actually than catching the disease the vaccination is supposed to help with).

    Specifically what are your thoughts on the vitamin K shot at birth? I have read to wait as long as possible to vaccinate, at least 6months+ if possible, but I have mixed feelings about the vitamin K as the US does not offer oral vitamin K for children.

    Thanks!

      Elizabeth, I am from a medical family .. my Dad is a retired MD and my brother is also an MD. When I first started researching this issue 18 years ago when I became pregnant with my first child, the other side of the story was VERY hard for me to deal with mentally and emotionally given that I had always been raised that “vaccines saved the world”. That being said, I have yet to come across a single vax that I feel is worth the risk to long term health … the health damage from the potent toxins in the vaccines takes the form of autoimmune disease of which there are dozens from mild (allergies) to severe (cancer) with everything in between. If you really dig in a research both sides, I would suggest that even the tetanus jab is a gamble and should be skipped in all but the most serious of situations. Regarding the Vitamin K shot, I skipped that also … I feel that oral K is a better way to go and what several countries in Europe are using already. http://www.thehealthyhomeeconomist.com/skip-that-newborn-vitamin-k-shot/

        Regarding the question about vitamin k, it is definitely possible in the US to get plant based vitamin k in an olive oil base. My midwife got it for me. My sister went the same route. It requires multiple doses but is a choice we felt much more comfortable with. And you can decide how many doses you want to give based on the situation – circumcision or not, high or low levels of vitamin k in the Mom, etc. Definitely talk to an expert!!! But it is totally possible to choose a natural alternative if you are not comfortable with skipping altogether.

      Elizabeth, DO NOT DO IT – NOTHING – NO shots NO vaccines — breast feed, feed yourself and the child top notch organic foods, avoid ANYTHING processed, start at the beginning feeding healthy fats, meat (many tribal mothers prechew meat to give to child when the child starts to eat solid food) – listen to Sarah, learn about traditional diets, spend time with Weston Price Foundation material (Masterjohn is great…) we did all this and produced the most solid, amazingly healthy 8 year old – here is proof: facebook.com/earthangelvillage/videos/448530088676076/ or youtube: youtube.com/watch?v=S8E-cDu3k9M&google_comment_id=z13ycr4a4u2ngjw4x04ccf2rgzyvujrbuuc0k&google_view_type#gpluscomments

      I had my baby born 10 month ago. She is completely vaccine free (not even an oral Vitamin K). There is absolutely no need for the vitamin K shot; the amount of vitamin K injected into newborns is 20,000 times the needed dose . Additionally, the injection may also contain preservatives that can be toxic for your baby’s delicate, young immune system (Dr. Mercola on Vitamin K: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2010/03/27/high-risks-to-your-baby-from-vitamin-k-shot-they-dont-warn-you-about.aspx). Oral Vitamin K is a safer alternative to the injection, but not the best because synthetic vitamins do not absorb effectively to be beneficial.

      Instead of introducing an inorganic substance to my baby, I made sure to eat a solid diet during pregnancy and when breastfeeding (i.e. bone broth soups, pastured raised eggs, organic produce and meats, no refined carbs and sugars, home made kefir, fish oil, etc.) Plus, I drank nettle leaf tea in the last trimester. The herb is a potent source of minerals and vitamins, including Vitamin K. Nettle leaf is not new to me as I have used fresh nettle leaves as greens to add in soups. The following article about pregnancy herbs gives a good overview of the herb: http://www.susunweed.com/Article_Pregnancy_Problems.htm

      Most people have no idea about this .. they just assume the vaccinations they received as a child (total number and dosage) is roughly the same which is far, far from the actual truth!

    I find this beyond a little disturbing. It took me almost four years to figure out why my 16 yr old developed allergies & than asthma after receiving mega doses (apparently to carful) of vaccines at 12 yrs of age! Oh how I wish I could go back in time for her! None of my other children (all older) have these issues. My eyes were open as I researched more & more & than while adopting our now 16 month old gr nephew. It’s been a huge challenge with the agency & pediatricians putting off any more vaccines for him but he’s been unbelievably healthy ever since. I have a hard time thinking about all those babies in foster care now w no one to advocate for them :-( 😩😰

    I am so angry at myself for allowing my 4.5 year-old to be vaccinated thus far. I didn’t do enough outside research, even though my best friend did, and advised me against getting them. Luckily, I have eaten a nourishing whole foods diet since long before he was born, as does he; we filter our drinking/bathing water, etc etc. He’s been healthy so far, thankfully, and now I know better. No mas! Thank you, Sarah.

    It is truly insane that big pharma fixed it so they can’t be sued. Now they can make everyone sick!

      One of the big arguments of the pro-vax lobby is, “Well, YOU were vaxed and YOU are fine, right?” True. We were vaxed, but we didn’t get the horse shots that kids are getting nowadays with 5,6, even 7 vaccines in a single jab. It’s toxin overload which triggers an unpredictable mix of health problems.

    I’m curious, what are the downsides to taking the vaccines? I don’t know anyone who has ever had a negative side affect to a vaccine and by negative side affect, I am referring to a serious reaction or permanent illness.

      This article details what vaxed children suffer from … allergies, asthma, autism, and many other issues at a much higher rate than nonvaxed kids. http://www.thehealthyhomeeconomist.com/survey-results-are-unvaccinated-children-healthier/

      My daughter developed cerebellar ataxia after her 9 month polio vaccination. She is now 15 years old.

        Here’s the truth about polio that the drug companies don’t want you to know: 95% of the people who have the poliovirus show no symptoms at all (source: http://phil.cdc.gov/phil/details.asp?pid=1952)

        What’s more, less than 1% of those who have the poliovirus will develop any sort of paralysis, and of those small number of cases less than 10% result in death (source: http://www.globalhealth.gov/global-health-topics/communicable-diseases/polio/)

        I’ll take my chances with polio, thanks. The likelihood of contracting let alone having a complication from polio are trivial compared with the long term risks of autoimmune disease from the toxic shot.

        If you vaccinate … don’t do Vegas. You will lose.

    As a pediatric nurse I gave thousands of these vaccines to children and never believed they did any harm. I believed that parents who refused vaccines just didn’t understand the truth, and I had pity on them. However, after my fourth baby had a severe vaccine reaction, I independently researched the components of each injection, and decided to abstain from all future vaccines. I am so glad that I did. Though I was looked down upon by my colleagues, I am happily raising 6 healthy children.

    Pediatricians and pediatric nurses aren’t really malicious, profit-driven, or purposely manipulative. Unfortunately though, their paternalistic attitude of “Doctor Knows Best” extends so that they believe that supposedly uninformed parents couldn’t possibly be intelligent enough to do what is best for their own children.

    Thank you for keeping us all updated on changes to the CDC schedule, so that we can be prepared with knowledge rather than be caught unaware at the next visit.

      These nurses and doctors are victims too .. just like we parents are. We must be sensitive to the predicament they are in … do exactly as they are told or lose their jobs. It is very hard to stand up and do what the conscience dictates when you have to pay the bills. This is why it is CRITICAL for parents to drive this .. we don’t have careers or medical licenses on the line. We can speak freely and forcefully on behalf of these victimized children.

        Sarah, you are being too kind by saying that doctors and nurses are also victims. Yes, they were/are misled but they are also supposed to be intelligent people. Once a doctor/nurse has been given the information on the dangers of vaccines they then have no excuse for not speaking out. “First do no harm”, not “I must protect my job and my profession at all costs”.

    Hi there, just wanted to add that the graphic may have a typo correction needed; it has the Influenza at both the 6 months and 7 months…we want to make sure we are sharing solid, valid information. 73 is still horric and the correction is only for the sake of accuracy.

    I took my 11 year old in for her check up two weeks ago and they were requiring Tdap, Hep A, and Meningococcal. I was taken off guard because previously 11 was not a visit where shots were given. We declined to look through the information more closely and now as I look at the CDC site I am not sure why they were requiring Hep A.

    It would be great to compare US vaccination schedule to that of Iceland or other countries that are not corporate owned.

    Just to compare, here is the schedule of the [i]voluntary[/i] vaccination program of the Netherlands: http://rijksvaccinatieprogramma.nl/ (scroll down a little bit). It’s in Dutch, but it’s not that hard to figure out. 14 shots over a 12 year period!

    Hi Sarah, could you recommend some options for when you are forced to take a vaccine? I wasn’t vaccinated as a child but am being forced to get vaccinated since I am leaving the country. What are some precautions I can take? Thanks!

      Sarah;
      Many homeopaths can help with this type of situation, notably those certified in homeoprophylaxis and CEASE Therapy. For homeoprophylaxis supervisors go to Freeandhealthychildren.org. The directory of CEASE Therapists can be found at: uheal.net/CEASE.htm and cease-therapy.com/
