Forty children have died after a routine vaccination such as MMR and 2,100 more have suffered a serious reaction, UK health authorities have been forced to disclose this week – and these figures are just the tip of the iceberg.
Two of the vaccinated children have been left with permanent brain damage, and 1500 others have suffered neurological reactions, including 11 cases of brain inflammation and 13 cases of epilepsy and coma. Overall, there have been more than 2,100 adverse reactions to a childhood vaccine in the UK in the last seven years.
The UK’s Medicine and Healthcare Products Regulatory Authority (MHRA) was forced to reveal the figures following a request from a journalist under freedom of information legislation.
The true picture is likely to be far worse. The MHRA cases are only those that doctors have reported; if the doctor does not believe the vaccine has caused the reaction, he will not report it. It is suspected that just 10 per cent of all deaths and reactions from vaccines are ever reported; if so, this means that 400 children have died from a vaccine and 21,000 have suffered an adverse reaction in the UK alone. The true situation will be far worse in countries such as the US where childhood vaccination is compulsory.
Last month, the UK government was forced by a court to pay damages to a mother whose son was left with severe brain damage after an MMR vaccination. Another 500 similar cases are currently going through the UK courts.
These figures represent a major setback in the relationship between doctors and parents. Most parents have accepted the reassurances of doctors and health authorities that the vaccines are safe, and that they are doing the best for their child and the community.
Now, if things go wrong, they may be less inclined to believe the doctor’s denials that the vaccine is to blame.
So they've made the vaccine, lobbied hard to get people to inject their daughters with it. Yet still, not "enough" girls are lining up for their Gardasil shots.
Fear not! Dr. Matt Daley — a paediatrician — has an idea for increasing the number of girls who are vaccinated with Gardasil, Merck's human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccine.
He recently recommended they should be vaccinated at school. He said: "Children are there, and they are there every day. They are a captive audience."
Trapped and inoculated
Does he have any idea how completely scary that sounds? Trap them in school where they can be subdued and inoculated?
Of course, this solution supposes that the only reason nearly 90 per cent of all eligible girls have not received a Gardasil vaccine is because the girls are just so elusive. As if they're wild horses, nearly impossible to chase down and lasso.
Dr. Daley seems to miss the point that most girls don't make the decision about whether or not to get the shot — their parents do. And clearly, parents are weighing the considerable risks and expense on one hand against the feeble efficacy on the other, and figuring out that there's only one certainty about Gardasil: It makes a lot of money for Merck.
Shooting at bees
Dr. Daley's bright idea for increasing Gardasil numbers comes out of a discussion prompted by this question posed in a recent media report: Should boys also get vaccinated for HPV?
Well, the American Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has already rubber stamped this one with a big YES. Last year, Gardasil was approved for use in boys and men, ages nine through 26, to prevent genital warts.
Dr. Doug Lowy also answers the question with a YES.
No surprise there. Dr. Lowy is the co-inventor of Gardasil, so I expect he stands to reap generous rewards if many thousands of children are given his vaccine every year.
Here's his thoughts: Only 11 per cent of eligible girls are getting all three doses of Gardasil. That's not going to lower HPV rates very much. So let's give it to boys because then they'll be less likely to transmit HPV to girls.
Less likely, maybe, but not guaranteed. And that's how it goes with this insane vaccine. It's touted as a way to reduce rates of cervical cancer, but it's like using a shotgun on a swarm of bees. You might hit a few, but the swarm goes on.
The most disturbing thing about the Gardasil-for-boys question is that we don't yet know if the drug is as dangerous for boys as it is for girls. Many girls vaccinated with Gardasil have experienced dizziness, fainting, convulsions, paralysis, and seizures. Nearly 50 girls died after their vaccinations, although the FDA claims there's no proof Gardasil was the cause.
No proof. You're the parent of a teenage boy — you're wondering if you should have him vaccinated so he MIGHT avoid genital warts — and the FDA tells you there's no "proof" that Gardasil has taken the lives of dozens of young women.
So...how do you feel about that? Should YOUR boy get vaccinated for HPV?
Girl or boy — same answer — just say no.
And trying to trap your children in school and forcefully vaccinate them is just the latest in a string of dictatorial ways of getting them on Gardasil.

Part 2 of 4
Vaccination rates among children insured by commercial health insurance plans have dropped four percent between 2008 and 2009, says a new report by the National Committee for Quality Assurance. In its annual State of Health Care Quality report, the organization revealed that vaccine rates are falling sharply among high-education families.
This trend infuriates the vaccine industry and all the shills who push vaccines, of course. Despite all their high-dollar propaganda, expensive advertising and vaccine booths in airports, Wal-Marts and grocery stores, more and more people are coming to realize that many vaccines are dangerous for children and the seasonal flu vaccines in particular offer absolutely no scientifically-validated benefit whatsoever. They are pure quackery and nothing more.
The really interesting thing about this trend is that parents with a higher education are consciously choosing to protect their children from vaccines. Remarkably, the vaccine industry insists that "they're the stupid ones" because they don't believe the vaccine propaganda. But as it turns out, the American people are smarter than the vaccine industry thinks, and as they're learning the truth about seasonal flu vaccines, they're making informed, intelligent decisions to protect their children from such vaccines.
The H1N1 vaccine is included in this years seasonal flu jab along with two other strains. Initially the government’s policy was to only offer the jab to high-risk groups, such as those with long-term illnesses. Of course, there is major concern in the public domain, and patients' groups have expressed anger over this year's seasonal flu jab programme because people are unable to opt out of having the swine flu vaccine. There should be a choice!
A recent newspaper article reports that the H1N1 virus killed 14 British healthy children, and caused 70 deaths in children under the age of 16.
Who did the research?
Sir Liam Donaldson, former chief medical officer in the UK, during the wake of the H1N1 scare...
When asked in September last year how dangerous he thought the Swine Flu virus was, Sir Liam answered: ‘It isn’t a killer, but it can kill people... I don’t think we need to fear it, because for many people it will be a mild illness...’
Now it seems his story has changed... The findings of his recent study were published in the journal The Lancet, and support the latest government initiative to have all children vaccinated against H1N1.
