There Is No Freedom Without Health Freedom

IMPORTANT NOTICE:

Starting in July 2018, Vaccination News will no longer be manually updating the news because I can no longer afford to do it and I get almost no financial help.  I have tried numerous solutions, including charging $10/yr but even that was too much for but a few people.

To see what the news will look like, scroll down the page to the RSS feed articles.

I welcome the opportunity to continue as before by receiving the necessary funding, so am giving everyone enough of heads up to possibly come up with it.  Costs, including legal and technical fees, are about $20,000/year, most of which I have been covering for many years.

All the best,

Sandy Gottstein

More than a million girls have been given the jab, which is offered as they enter their teens. Jackie Fletcher, from Jabs, a support group for parents who believe their children were damaged by vaccines, said: 'We need to address why Ashleigh and these girls are reacting to vaccinations rather than blame her mother.' The MHRA analysis found that 2,107 patients had reported suspected adverse reactions to Cervarix and 4,602 had suspected side effects. Sefton Council, which is about to act against Cheryl, declined to comment yesterday, saying the case was confidential. But a spokeswoman for the Department of Health said: 'It is irresponsible to raise fears over vaccine safety in the absence of scientific evidence.'"

* ►September 20, 2009 - In their own world - Forty years ago, this developmental disorder was rarely heard of. However, we now live in a world where one child in 150 is diagnosed with autism. - Malaysia Star - "More worrisome, however, is the fact that there has been an increase in the number of cases of autism in recent times, both locally and globally. According to the National Autism Society of Malaysia (NASOM), there has been a 30% increase in the organisation’s intake of individual’s with autism for the past three years. Globally, as many as one in 150 children are diagnosed with autism."

* ►September 20, 2009 - Vaccine claims rejected - The Age - "The Australian Vaccination Network has claimed thiomersal, a preservative in the vaccine, increased risks of autism and Guillain-Barre paralysis. But infectious disease expert Professor Raina MacIntyre called the network a 'vocal fringe group' and said there was no scientific evidence linking vaccines to autism or Guillain-Barre."

* ►September 19, 2009 - U. of C. researcher dies after exposure to plague bacteria - Chicago Breaking News - "A University of Chicago molecular genetics professor studying the origins of harmful bacteria died last weekend after contracting an infection linked to the plague, officials said today.

University officials said the weakened strain of the bacteria is used as a vaccine to protect against the plague. According to university officials, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has approved the weakened strain for laboratory studies. It does not require special safety precautions required for work with more virulent strains, according to the release. Once the lab strain was identified Friday, officials contacted the Chicago Department of Public Health."

* ►September 19, 2009 - Stop Illegal Forced Flu Shots for NY Healthcare Workers - Today it's Healthcare Workers, Tomorrow it Will be Everybody - The Autism Action Coalition - "In an unprecedented power grab, Richard Daines, the Commissioner of the New York State Department of Health has issued an order requiring all healthcare workers to get the seasonal flu shot by November 30 or face termination. Daines justifies this seizure of rights by making the bogus claim that there is a seasonal flu emergency in New York. In another unprecedented move, unlike all other vaccine mandates under New York law, no exemptions will be allowed for religious reasons. Please join the Autism Action Network in fighting this outrageous trampling of workers basic rights. Please click on the Take Action link to send email messages to your State Senator, your Assemblymember, Richard Daines and his boss, Governor David Paterson, and demand that this illegal action stop immediately. And on Monday, September 21, please call Governor Paterson and Commissioner Daines and demand that they cancel this illegal trampling of rights. Today it is the healthcare workers, tomorrow it could be you and your children. ... A coalition of groups and individuals are organizing a rally for vaccine rights in Albany, September 29, 10 am, in the East Capitol Park. More details will follow as they develop."

* ►September 19, 2009 - Yes Some of the H1N1 Vaccines/Swine Flu Shots Have Thimerosal/Mercury In Them (includes video) - Adventures in Autism - "Remember all those talking heads on TV that keep saying that mercury is gone from vaccines and won't be in the H1N1 flu shot? They are misinforming you. Does the Swine Flu shot have mercury in it? The answer is yes... some of them. If you decide to get the shot, INSIST on seeing the vaccine package insert. If you are offered a shot that is drawn from a vial, that will be a mercury containing vaccine. Keep in mind that many parents of children with autism reported that their child received a shot from a multi-dose vial, and then saw the nurse throw the bottle away. Mercury is a heavy metal, and if the nurses who use that vial do not 'shake vigorously before use' then the mercury settles at the bottom and the last person to get a shot drawn from that vial gets a 'hot shot' with all the mercury in it."

* ►September 19, 2009 - U.S. reports 364 flu-related deaths, 4,569 hospitalizations in first half of September - People's Daily, China - "In an effort to add additional structure to the aggregate reporting, the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE) and the CDC have developed new case definitions for flu-associated hospitalizations and deaths to be applied for the 2009-2010 flu season, formally beginning from Oct. 4. This new system was implemented on Aug. 30, 2009 and replaces the weekly report of laboratory confirmed A/H1N1-related hospitalizations and deaths since July. States can now report to the CDC either laboratory confirmed or pneumonia and flu syndromic hospitalizations and deaths resulting from all types or subtypes of influenza, not just those from the new A/H1N1 virus. To allow states to implement the new case definition, counts were reset to zero by the CDC on Aug. 30."

What kind of riot could arise out of a flu that has only killed 1,000 worldwide," wrote the author of an article in "The American Thinker."

* ►September 18, 2009 - 12th Annual Conference on Vaccine Research (requires registration) - Expert Review of Vaccines via Medscape - "Paul Offit (Children's Hospital of Pennsylvania, PA, USA) discussed the role of the scientific community in identifying and communicating adverse events following immunization (AEFI). Offit focused on the 1998 paper published by the Lancet, which claims that the combined measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine caused autism. Since that publication, Offit noted that 12 separate studies have concluded that MMR does not cause autism. Despite these results, fear and skepticism surrounding the MMR vaccine still exist and are influencing parents as they decide whether or not to vaccinate their children. Offit encouraged members of the scientific community to assume a greater role in communicating health information to the general public. Steven Black (Cincinnati Children's Hospital, OH, USA) discussed the need for new approaches to assessing low-frequency AEFI. Given modern communication systems, AEFI of any origin can be communicated rapidly, requiring high-quality methods to survey, verify and respond to these events. Although some passive reporting systems exist, such as the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, Black argued that they are plagued by under-reporting, misclassification, and reporter bias. He called for further investigation into how to collect these data and respond to them effectively."

* ►September 18, 2009 - Four Swine Flu Vaccines Approved by FDA - AskDrSears - "What about pregnant and/or nursing mothers? This is a little scary. The flu shots are ALREADY recommended for pregnant and nursing moms, BUT (and this is a really huge but) the vaccine product inserts make it very clear that the regular flu vaccines have never been tested on pregnant or nursing women to determine if there is any harm to fetuses or young babies (with one exception – the ­­­­Flumist nasal spray brand did have some testing in this area, BUT not enough, as is stated in the product insert). Despite this complete lack of research, it is recommended for these moms anyway. Anyone see a problem with that? If you do get a flu shot, at least make sure it is mercury free (or at least only TRACE mercury)."
