DON'T BELIEVE A WORD THEY SAY... THEY WILL LIE ALL THE WAY TO YOUR GRAVE?
What? My mother thinks I exaggerate when I say that vaccines are poison and death?
Maybe she thinks that I AM MAD just because they tried to kill me (3x+)? (c'mon mom)
Is it because she never saw this page yet? (most likely huh? THIS IS A MUST WATCH & READ)
WHY risk your health for an untested "flu shot" being marketed with fraudulent information?
Even CDC Voting the HPV Vaccine Be Mandatory To Attend School is PEANUTS?
IS THIS GONNA BE ENOUGH "CONTROVERSY" FOR YOU?
WATCH & READ ON... CHECK OUT WHAT I FOUND OUT:
Dr. Sherry J. Tenpenny Talks About The Ingredients of the H1N1 Vaccine:
The truth about the H1N1 Vaccine.
The statements in the initial video were in regards to the fake pandemic alarms initiated by the World Health Organization, and the drug companies who are corrupting decisions on the flu cases. The cases were exaggerated, over stated and out and out lies about the severity of the flu. All a person has to do is look at the ingredients of any flu shot which is most carcinogens that cause cancer. There is no evidence that the H1N1 Vaccine works or prevents the swine flu, in fact more likely it infects people with the flu.
Vaccines should never be undertaken without testing, or forced on anyone
British Nurses, NY Health Care Workers and even Drug Company employees who make this dangerous vaccine – will not take the H1N1 Shot. This year we expect the US govt., and the drug companies will ramp up their phony fear mongering to boost vaccines. The problem is that most of the vaccines have been sitting on the shelves and still contain mercury that causes autism, and blood poisoning.
Rumsfeld, Bush, Cheney all lied about WMD’s but NOT about Swine Flu... RIGHT?
Here is Ron Paul on Swine Flu Shots
He remembers 1976 -the last Swine Flu scare was a hoax and the government then and now -are forcing untested vaccines.
He’s right -more people died from the vaccine than the flu –
... only 25 people died of the vaccine and 1 person from the flu.
The FDA has approved and endorses the addition of the H1N1 Vaccine in the regular flu shot this fall of 2010 and the flu shots given in the winter months up to April, 2011.
This is not well known in the media nor is it public information being given to the consumer, but you may wish to ask your doctor if this year’s flu shot contains the H1N1 vaccine ingredients or any part of that mixture including the most harmful one squalene.
ALERT: Miscarriages and stillbirths after H1N1 vaccine?
Deaths Begin Happening After Swine Flu Vaccine
GIRL DIES AFTER HPV VACCINE?
Even Ron Paul Exposes Swine Hoax of 1976 and 2009
Ron Paul further exposes the 1976 Swine Flu Vaccine scare and it didn’t work then and it won’t work now. The CBS News investigators have revealed the numbers of swine flu cases is being manipulated by the panic reports from the CDC, NIH and FDA. This is being assisted by the US government as a scare tactic to force people through fear to get an untested dangerous and possibly lethal vaccine. The h1n1 vaccine is totally comprised of cancer causing agents such as mercury, aluminum and 3 viruses that are an overload cocktail of damaging ingredients. This vaccine will never be tested for causing cancer and has never been tested long term for side effects such as auto-immune diseases. The Obama administration has made a grave error in the midst of health care reform and the world has sadly followed suit, this swine hoax almost guarantees that people will become very ill and diseased as a result of this swine flu vaccine.
The AMA does not approve of drugs or vaccines that are hysterically mandated by the US government and drugs that are falsely advertised on national network television every day. The so called epidemic is falsely reported in terms of numbers of deaths -because the deaths are related to other illnesses. If you coughed -you have swine flu, if you sneezed you have swine flu, if you feel tired -you have swine flu.
This is utter nonsense and is geared towards spending billions of taxpayers dollars on a useless vaccine.
It is useless because if this swine combination virus changes in any way this vaccine becomes useless and another will surely take its place. The drug company profits on the stock exchange have soared as a result of this pandemic hoax and people are not buying it.
Many health care workers especially in New York have refused to take the shot and stopped the NY state authorities in court to make workers take this untested swine vaccine.
The gig is up- the swine flu pandemic is as trust worthy as the Balloon Boy hoax. Ron Paul illustrates as a medical doctor and as a man with integrity how the swine flu pandemic was manipulated by corporate interests and corrupt politicians in the Obama administration.
The new H1N1 vaccine has not been safety tested yet
It contains mercury which has been banned from childhood vaccinations in the US and UK for safety reasons. It also contains squalene which has been linked to Gulf War Syndrome, and Octoxynol 10 which is a spermacide and has no place in a vaccination.
Your citizens, including my family members, have a right not to be forced to have a vaccine that hasn't been safety tested and contains known poisonous ingredients. It is a violation of human rights and International law.
This is NOT a pandemic situation, only 800 have died worldwide - more people that that die of regular flu every year in just one country.
In the last swine flu epidemic, only one person died of the disease - yet 25 were killed by the vaccine and several hundred paralysed. Please learn from the mistakes of the US government and allow the citizens in your beautiful country the opportunity to say no if they don't want a vaccine.
10 Reasons Why Flu Shots Are More Dangerous Than a Flu
The verdict is out on flu shots. Many medical experts now agree it is more important to protect yourself and your family from the flu vaccine than the flu itself. Let’s take a look at the reasons behind this verdict:
1.) There is a total lack of real evidence that young children even benefit from flu shots. A systematic review of 51 studies involving 260,000 children age 6 to 23 months found no evidence that the flu vaccine is any more effective than a placebo. Also the shots are only able to protect against certain strains of the virus, which means that if you come into contact with a different strain of virus you will still get the flu.
2.) Medical journals have published thousands of articles revealing that injecting vaccines can actually lead to serious health problems including harmful immunological responses and a host of other infections. This further increases the body’s susceptibility to the diseases that the vaccine was supposed to protect against.
3.) Ever noticed how vaccinated children within days or few weeks develop runny noses, pneumonia, ear infections and bronchiolitis? The reason is the flu virus introduced in their bodies which creates these symptoms. It also indicates immuno-suppression i.e. lowering of the immunity. The flu vaccines actually do not immunize but sensitize the body against the virus.
4.) Its a known fact that Flu vaccines contain strains of the flu virus along with other ingredients. Now think about the impact such a vaccine can have over someone with a suppressed immune system? If you have a disease that is already lowering your body’s ability to fight a virus, taking the flu shot will put your body in danger of getting the full effects of the flu and make you more susceptible to pneumonia and other contagious diseases.
5.) The Flu vaccines contain mercury, a heavy metal known to be hazardous for human health. The amount of mercury contained in a multi-dose flu shot is much higher than the maximum allowable daily exposure limit. Mercury toxicity can cause memory loss, depression, ADD, oral health problems, digestive imbalances, respiratory problems, cardiovascular diseases and many more such serious health ailments. And what about the elderly? Can the flu vaccine help them?
6.) There is mounting evidence that flu shots can cause Alzheimer’s disease. One report shows that people who received the flu vaccine each year for 3 to 5 years had a 10-fold greater chance of developing Alzheimer’s disease than people who did not have any flu shots. Also with age the immune system weakens, thus lowering your ability to fight off infections. Introducing the flu virus in the bodies of elderly could have dangerous consequences. Can we trust the authorities who are promoting the wide-spread use of flu vaccines?
7.) The Center for Disease Control appoints a 15-member Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP). This committee is responsible for deciding who should be vaccinated each year. Almost all the ACIP have a financial interest in immunizations. It’s all about the money and may have very little to do with your health and well being. The very people pushing these vaccines stand to make billions of dollars. This itself creates a doubt on how effective these flu vaccines really are?
8.) Research shows that over-use of the flu-vaccine and drugs like Tamiflu and Relenza can actually alter flu viruses and cause them to mutate into a more deadly strain. Couple this with drug resistant strains and you have virtually no benefits with much risk.
9.) There is enough evidence that shows that the ingredients present in the flu vaccinations can actually cause serious neurological disorders. In the 1976 swine flu outbreak, many who got the flu shots developed permanent nerve damage. Flu vaccines can contain many harmful materials including detergent, mercury, formaldehyde, and strains of live flu virus. Is this what you want to put in YOUR body?
10.) Trying to guess what strain to vaccinate against each season has proved to be no more effective than a guessing game. This has been very true in recent years with the H1N1 strain. Moreover getting multi-shots will only prove more dangerous as different strains of viruses and harmful ingredients are introduced into your body.
Flu shots are indeed more dangerous than you could think, and it is best to rely on natural ways to protect against the flu rather than getting yourself vaccinated. Isn't it interesting that the main stream public health officials never promote the various proven ways to avoid the flu other than through vaccination? How about spending some of the billions of advertising dollars teaching us natural ways to boost our immune systems and avoid the flu without harmful and sometimes deadly vaccinations.
10 Reasons are enough for most people to know this vaccine is highly toxic and has been linked to miscarriages in pregnant mothers. In 1963 President John F. Kennedy ordered a ban on experimental drugs (that includes vaccines) to be given to pregnant mothers due to the Thalidomide deformed babies born in the 1960′s.
In 2009 however, President Barack Obama reversed that ban and allowed doctors, pharmaceuticals to target pregnant mothers under the false information that they were susceptible to the swine flu. Nothing was further from the truth.
Today, Americans cannot trust that the US government is protecting them from harmful drugs or vaccines and you are on your own legally if you are damaged by vaccines. You cannot sue drug companies for any damages thanks to the government passing laws to protect corporate drug companies. As it turned out there was no pandemic as the World Health Organization (run by pharmaceutical executives) and it was a hoax on the world. The flu was all about selling an untested vaccine to people through fear and intimidating threats of being fired for not taking the shot. Health Care workers in New York State took the matter to court and won the right to refuse the mandated law forcing them to be vaccinated. State law makers were wrong to force this vaccine on to state workers but they most assuredly will try this tactic again in the future.
Dr. Mercola’s Informative Video on the H1N1 Vaccine and The Truth About Vaccines
CDC’s figures are wrong says Dr. Mercola most people who are dying from the flu are not dying from the flu they are dying from pneumonia. Flu Vaccines DO Not WORK for pneumonia therefore the vaccines are uselessly being sold to people and the US Government.
The Flu vaccine is loaded with toxins that do not prevent they flu, they weaken the immune system.
WHAT TO DO TO PREVENT THE SWINE FLU, THE H1N1 FLU, OR ANY FLU,
DO NOT BE CONFUSED BY FACTS AND THEORIES – THIS IS A MUST SEE ON VITAMIN D:
Neurotoxic effects of postnatal thimerosal are mouse strain dependent.
The developing brain is uniquely susceptible to the neurotoxic hazard posed by mercurials. Host differences in maturation, metabolism, nutrition, sex, and autoimmunity influence outcomes. How population-based variability affects the safety of the ethylmercury-containing vaccine preservative, thimerosal, is unknown. Reported increases in the prevalence of autism, a highly heritable neuropsychiatric condition, are intensifying public focus on environmental exposures such as thimerosal. Immune profiles and family history in autism are frequently consistent with autoimmunity. We hypothesized that autoimmune propensity influences outcomes in mice following thimerosal challenges that mimic routine childhood immunizations. Autoimmune disease-sensitive SJL/J mice showed growth delay; reduced locomotion; exaggerated response to novelty; and densely packed, hyperchromic hippocampal neurons with altered glutamate receptors and transporters. Strains resistant to autoimmunity, C57BL/6J and BALB/cJ, were not susceptible. These findings implicate genetic influences and provide a model for investigating thimerosal-related neurotoxicity.

Autism Could Be Caused By Genetic Susceptibility to Mercury (in Vaccines)
Pink disease (infantile acrodynia) was especially prevalent in the first half of the 20th century. Primarily attributed to exposure to mercury (Hg) commonly found in teething powders, the condition was developed by approximately 1 in 500 exposed children. The differential risk factor was identified as an idiosyncratic sensitivity to Hg. Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) have also been postulated to be produced by Hg. Analogous to the pink disease experience, Hg exposure is widespread yet only a fraction of exposed children develop an ASD, suggesting sensitivity to Hg may also be present in children with an ASD. The objective of this study was to test the hypothesis that individuals with a known hypersensitivity to Hg (pink disease survivors) may be more likely to have descendants with an ASD. Five hundred and twenty-two participants who had previously been diagnosed with pink disease completed a survey on the health outcomes of their descendants. The prevalence rates of ASD and a variety of other clinical conditions diagnosed in childhood (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, epilepsy, Fragile X syndrome, and Down syndrome) were compared to well-established general population prevalence rates. The results showed the prevalence rate of ASD among the grandchildren of pink disease survivors (1 in 25) to be significantly higher than the comparable general population prevalence rate (1 in 160). The results support the hypothesis that Hg sensitivity may be a heritable/genetic risk factor for ASD.

Used Vaccine Vials are Classed as Hazardous Waste
"In addition to the multidose vaccines containing thimerosal discussed above, some companies offer a 0.5 mg/L single dose, pre-filled syringe vaccine. Some of these products are labeled “preservative- or thimerosal-free”. Preservative-free products may contain trace amounts (less than or equal to 1 microgram/0.5 mL dose) because thimerosal was used during the manufacturing process. The term preservative- or thimerosal-free can be utilized if the manufacturer further purified the product, leaving only trace amounts (less than or equal to 1 microgram/0.5 mL) per dose. Even at this level, calculations indicate mercury would exceed the TCLP standard; therefore these vaccines, if deemed unusable, should be managed as hazardous waste as well."
Going into Hospital Carries a 1 in 300 Chance of Death
Millions of people die each year from medical errors and infections linked to health care and going into hospital is far riskier than flying, the World Health Organization said on Thursday.
"If you were admitted to hospital tomorrow in any country... your chances of being subjected to an error in your care would be something like 1 in 10. Your chances of dying due to an error in health care would be 1 in 300," Liam Donaldson, the WHO's newly appointed envoy for patient safety, told a news briefing.
This compared with a risk of dying in an air crash of about 1 in 10 million passengers, according to Donaldson, formerly England's chief medical officer.
CIA Organised Fake Vaccination Programme to Capture Bin Laden
The CIA organised a fake vaccination programme in the town where it believed Osama bin Laden was hiding in an elaborate attempt to obtain DNA from the fugitive al-Qaida leader's family, a Guardian investigation has found.
As part of extensive preparations for the raid that killed Bin Laden in May, CIA agents recruited a senior Pakistani doctor to organise the vaccine drive in Abbottabad, even starting the "project" in a poorer part of town to make it look more authentic, according to Pakistani and US officials and local residents.
The doctor, Shakil Afridi, has since been arrested by the Inter-Services Intelligence agency (ISI) for co-operating with American intelligence agents.

A Positive Association found between Autism Prevalence and Childhood Vaccination uptake across the U.S. Population
The reason for the rapid rise of autism in the United States that began in the 1990s is a mystery. Although individuals probably have a genetic predisposition to develop autism, researchers suspect that one or more environmental triggers are also needed. One of those triggers might be the battery of vaccinations that young children receive. Using regression analysis and controlling for family income and ethnicity, the relationship between the proportion of children who received the recommended vaccines by age 2 years and the prevalence of autism (AUT) or speech or language impairment (SLI) in each U.S. state from 2001 and 2007 was determined. A positive and statistically significant relationship was found: The higher the proportion of children receiving recommended vaccinations, the higher was the prevalence of AUT or SLI. A 1% increase in vaccination was associated with an additional 680 children having AUT or SLI. Neither parental behavior nor access to care affected the results, since vaccination proportions were not significantly related (statistically) to any other disability or to the number of pediatricians in a U.S. state. The results suggest that although mercury has been removed from many vaccines, other culprits may link vaccines to autism. Further study into the relationship between vaccines and autism is warranted.

Infant mortality rates regressed against number of vaccine doses routinely given: Is there a biochemical or synergistic toxicity?
The infant mortality rate (IMR) is one of the most important indicators of the socio-economic well-being and public health conditions of a country. The US childhood immunization schedule specifies 26 vaccine doses for infants aged less than 1 year—the most in the world—yet 33 nations have lower IMRs. Using linear regression, the immunization schedules of these 34 nations were examined and a correlation coefficient of r = 0.70 (p < 0.0001) was found between IMRs and the number of vaccine doses routinely given to infants. Nations were also grouped into five different vaccine dose ranges: 12–14, 15–17, 18–20, 21–23, and 24–26. The mean IMRs of all nations within each group were then calculated. Linear regression analysis of unweighted mean IMRs showed a high statistically significant correlation between increasing number of vaccine doses and increasing infant mortality rates, with r = 0.992 (p = 0.0009). Using the Tukey-Kramer test, statistically significant differences in mean IMRs were found between nations giving 12–14 vaccine doses and those giving 21–23, and 24–26 doses. A closer inspection of correlations between vaccine doses, biochemical or synergistic toxicity, and IMRs is essential.

Kids Need to Be Tested for HIV After Flu Vaccine Blunder
Parents whose children got flu shots at a clinic in Fort Collins are being told their children should be tested for blood borne illnesses after an employee at the clinic mistakenly re-used syringes of medicine.
It’s serious enough that a physician at Med Peds Clinic says the medical assistant who was giving the flu vaccines was immediately fired after someone else in the office noticed that vaccine from the same plastic syringes was being given to two different children.
A letter to parents says the risk of a disease like hepatitis or HIV being transmitted is very low.
Elena Gjini is 11 months old and looks healthy as can be. But now her father, Orges Gjini, is worried sick after receiving the letter and a phone call from the Med Peds Clinic recommending that some of their youngest patients, including Elena, be tested.
“At 11 months, being put at risk for hepatitis B, hepatitis C and HIV, that’s something no parent should have to hear,” Orges said.
In the letter Med Peds says a medical assistant using prefilled syringes mistakenly gave children half a dose.
“She then removed the needle (using sterile procedure), replaced it with a new, unused, sterile needle and placed the syringes into a box labeled ‘second doses,’” the letter states.
The half-filled syringes were then used on some patients returning for their second flu vaccine. The clinic consulted state health officials and told parents “we have been assured that the risk of your child acquiring any infectious disease is very low.”
“It says it’s a very low risk, but any risk is too much,” Orges said.
“We are extremely dismayed by these events and are very sorry for any trouble or distress this may cause you,” the letter states.
“There is no way of calming down a parent by just saying that the risk is really low,” Orges said. “They’ve placed a child at a grave risk to where she may have contracted HIV, hepatitis B or hepatitis C, but the risk is very low so don’t worry too much about it. It just doesn’t work that way.”
Now after getting her blood tested, Elena’s father is waiting for the results.

Autism and Vaccines Researcher for CDC, Indicted for Fraud and Money-Laundering
SafeMinds demands long-overdue independent review of vaccine/autism research for data manipulation and conflicts of interest. Vaccine safety remains questionable.
Poul Thorsen, the principal coordinator of multiple studies funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) used to deny a vaccine/autism link was indicted on April 13th on 13 counts of fraud and 9 counts of money-laundering. The charges relate to funding for work he conducted for the CDC, which claimed to disprove associations between the mercury-based vaccine preservative, thimerosal, and increased rates of autism.
SafeMinds first voiced concerns in 2003 regarding a series of epidemiology studies out of Denmark and under the jurisdiction of Thorsen that provided the basis for the Institute of Medicine's claim that there was no association between thimerosal and autism. That claim has been responsible for the continued unsafe use of mercury in influenza vaccines in the United States and infant vaccines around the world.

BMJ Admits Conflict of Interest
The BMJ should have declared competing interests in relation to this editorial by Fiona Godlee and colleagues (BMJ 2011;342:c7452, doi:10.1136/bmj.c7452). The BMJ Group receives advertising and sponsorship revenue from vaccine manufacturers, and specifically from Merck and GSK, which both manufacture MMR vaccines. For further information see the rapid response from Godlee (www.bmj.com/content/342/bmj.d1335.full/reply#bmj_el_251470). The same omission also affected two related Editor’s Choice articles (BMJ 2011;342:d22 and BMJ 2011;342:d378).
Recall of GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) Vaccines with possible quality defect
The Department of Health (DH) today (March 4) ordered a licensed drug company, GlaxoSmithKline Ltd. (GSK), to recall from the market 144 units of three of its vaccines because of suspected quality defect.
The products to be recalled are 115 units of Fluarix vaccine (Registration No.: HK-43003; Batch No.: AFLUA510AB) from eight private practitioners and two units from Hong Kong Baptist Hospital (HKBH); 20 units of Infanrix-IPV/Hib vaccine (Registration No.: HK-47367; Batch No. A20CA598A) from Hong Kong Sanatorium and Hospital Ltd (HKSH); and two units of Synflorix vaccine (Registration No.: HK-58098; Batch No. ASPNA023DC ) from DH’s Anne Black Maternal and Child Health Centre (MCHC) and five units from Ap Lei Chau MCHC.
GSK reported to DH today that earlier on this January, a total of 260 units of the above three products were collected from a private practitioner via its distributor, Zuellig Pharma Ltd, a licensed wholesaler, because of possible breakage in the cold chain while the items were in his custody. The vaccines were being quarantined in Zuellig’s store, pending assessment by GSK before disposal. However, they were mistakenly released in February because of staff oversight.
Fluarix is a vaccine for use in adults and children above six months for the prevention against influenza.
Infanrix-IPV/Hib is for immunisation against diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis; poliomyelitis and Haemophilus influenzae type B in clients aged two months, while Synflorix is a vaccine against pneumococcal disease.
Investigation into the records of GSK and Zuellig showed that the suspicious vaccines were released by GSK and distributed by Zuellig to DH’s Anne Black and Ap Lei Chau MCHCs, eight private practitioners’ clinics and two private hospitals, HKSH and BH, between February 16 and 23.
Further tracing revealed that 116 units had already been administered, comprising 38 units of Synflorix to clients of Anne Black Maternal and Child Health Centre between February 23 and 24; 73 units of Fluarix to clients of the eight private practitioners after February 16; and five other units of Fluarix to clients of HKBH after February 16. There was no record of Infantrix-IPV/Hib ever having been given out by HKSH, nor has DH received any report of related adverse event thus far.
A spokesman for DH remarked that inappropriate storage temperature could reduce or even destroy the effectiveness of vaccines, resulting in inadequate or no immune response. According to most international authorities, the World Health Organisation included, re-vaccination would likely be required.

Pertussis spread to neonates by 'immunised' staff
The highly transmissible nature of pertussis has been highlighted by an incident at a Sydney maternity hospital in which a fully-immunised nurse infected four neonates.
Described this week in Communicable Diseases Intelligence, the incident shows that extra vigilance is needed in healthcare staff working with newborns, in whom any coughing illness must be suspected to be pertussis, say the report authors.

Statement from Andrew Wakefield
Dr. Andrew Wakefield issued the following statement today on the recent British Medical Journal articles:
"The British Medical Journal and reporter Brian Deer recently alleged that my 1998 research paper was 'a hoax' and 'an elaborate fraud' and that my motivation was profit.
"I want to make one thing crystal clear for the record – my research and the serious medical problems found in those children were not a hoax and there was no fraud whatsoever. Nor did I seek to profit from our findings.
"I stand by the Lancet paper's methodology and the results which call for more research into whether environmental triggers cause gastrointestinal disease and developmental regression in children. In fact, despite media reports to the contrary, the results of my research have been duplicated in five other countries (to see citations to studies, visit http://tinyurl.com/4hrdt5y.)
"It is not unexpected to see poor reporting and misinformation coming from Brian Deer, the lead reporter of the recent BMJ coverage. But to see coverage in other media that cites Deer's shoddy journalism in the BMJ as a final justification to claim there is no link between vaccines and autism is ludicrous. The MMR is only one vaccine of the eleven vaccinations on the pediatric schedule that has been studied for causing developmental problems such as autism. That is fact, not opinion. Any medical professional, government official or journalist who states that the case is closed on whether vaccines cause autism is jumping to conclusions without the research to back it up.
"I continue to fully support more independent research to determine if environmental triggers, including vaccines, are causing autism and other developmental problems. The current rate of autism is 1 in 110 children in the United States and 1 in 64 children in the U.K. My goal has always been and will remain the health and safety of children. Since the Lancet paper, I have lost my job, my career and my country. To claim that my motivation was profit is patently untrue. I will not be deterred - this issue is far too important."

BMJ Letters Regarding the Witch Hunt of Andrew Wakefield
It is most unfortunate to read the Andrew Wakefield episode, the physician being demonised for linking MMR vaccines with autism. In my opinion, he has erred on the side of caution, despite lack of appropriate scientific rigor, or accusations of fraud. A quick PubMed search shows that at least 500 articles relate vaccines with autism, with some suggesting that "U.S. male neonates vaccinated with the hepatitis B vaccine prior to 1999 (from vaccination record) had a threefold higher risk for parental report of autism diagnosis compared to boys not vaccinated as neonates during that same time period (Gallagher CM, Goodman MS.J Toxicol Environ Health A. 2010 Jan;73(24):1665-77). Other hypotheses suggest that the "combination measles-mumps-rubella vaccine causes autism by damaging the intestinal lining, which allows the entrance of encephalopathic proteins; (2) thimerosal, an ethylmercury-containing preservative in some vaccines, is toxic to the central nervous system; and (3) the simultaneous administration of multiple vaccines overwhelms or weakens the immune system" (Gerber JS, Offit PA..Clin Infect Dis. 2009 Feb 15;48(4):456-61.Vaccines and autism: a tale of shifting hypotheses)In Canada, researchers estimated the prevalence of pervasive developmental disorder with respect to MMR vaccination in 27,749 children from 55 schools in Quebec (Fombonne E, Zakarian R, Bennett A, Meng L, McLean- Heywood D. Pervasive developmental disorders in Montreal, Quebec, Canada: prevalence and links with immunizations. Pediatrics. 2006;118:e139-50).
Although 20 epidemiologic studies have shown that neither thimerosal nor MMR vaccine causes autism, it is not clear if the vaccine is entirely safe if used in the wrong way (any controlled studies?). And Dr.Wakefield's publications might have only highlighted the pitfalls associated with abuse of MMR vaccines in particular and vaccines in general. He has erred but only on the side of caution given the myriad biotech and pharmaceutical products out there, not one of which is entirely safe and efficacious. After all, it is a question of risk-benefit analysis, and if in some cases the risk is overhyped or exaggerated, it should not be a cause for concern. It is something to be appreciated, instead, despite all the missed childhood vaccinations!

Misdirection with vaccine investigations
I have documented the epidemic of autism from 1992/1993 using the US Department of Education figures. Also I have found through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request from the Social Security Administration that nationwide in the US, the numbers of adults/children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) collecting Social Security (SSI) benefits has skyrocketed from around 42,000+ in 2002 to 111,000+ in 2008.
In New Jersey, the state Division of Developmental Disabilities estimates nearly a quarter of 40,000 people it serves have autism as at least one of their diagnoses. Nationally, more than 250,000 students with autism were in schools in 2006-07, more than a 600 percent increase over a decade, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. And a 2007 National Survey of Child Health estimated that more than 680,000 children aged 2 to 17 have some form of autism -- a rate of 1 out of every 91 children.
In deed, I would think it would be more important to find out how the medical community could stop this epidemic by prevention and treat the children and adults that have regressive autism like our son. If it isn't done, all the denials about vaccines and autism will not stop this epidemic and it will be costly not only in economic terms but human terms.
Competing interests: Son who was born normal but regressed into autism after receiving the MMR vaccine based on home videotapes; and blood tests indicating elevated measles titer antibodies ten times above normal and testing positive for myelin basic protein antibodies.

It can reasonably be assumed that some vaccines do cause damage to children or we would not have the Vaccine Damage Payments Act 1979.  The list of diseases to which this act applies includes measles and rubella as well as diphtheria, tetanus and whooping cough.
There does not appear to have been a consolidated paper that attempts to show how vaccines might cause brain damage by a review of the scientific literature except for the one that I have published on various web sites including scribd.  It has been published for open access. This paper looks at the causative factors mainly from the effects of the whooping cough vaccine (pertussis).
However, the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Immunization Program, promulgates that the risks from MMR vaccine can be permanent brain damage. 
Epidemiologists will probably say, and quite rightly, that the benefits of vaccination outweigh the occasional damage that is caused by some of them. The number of payments for vaccine damage in the UK is in excess of 1,000 and compared with the number of children who have benefitted, that number is miniscule bit not unimportant.
Over a thousand children will be living diminished lives as a result and their parents will be anguished that they were, in part, responsible for their child's disability.
For this lifetime of inequality and the loss of; normal education, a job and a life that contains the expectancies that most of us have envisaged and possibly achieved, the maximum award is, If you are severely disabled as a result of a vaccination, a one-off, tax-free payment of GBP120,000.
It is this shameful situation that ought to cause concern rather than a continuing denouncement of Wakefield. He may have got his understanding of the relationship between MMR and Autism wrong but that does not prove that there isn't one.

A Simple Study Could Settle This
I am a physician board-certified by American Board of Psychiatry & Neurology who has specialized in autism for the last 13 years. I have trained hundreds of other physicians in the biomedical treatment of autism, and regularly mentor actively practicing physicians. I and other physicians with whom I work have had many children in our practices with history of Hep B vaccine at birth followed by regression into autism after the live triple MMR vaccine. Almost every patient with autism has some degree of gut disorder, and those with high rubeola antibody titers often have had the most intractable gut inflammation conditions in my practice.
I have never questioned Dr. Wakefield's association between MMR, autism and what is aptly named autistic enterocolitis and personally do not believe he has acted fraudulently. Along with hundreds of other physicians with waiting lists trying to help these suffering children I believe this uproar could be easily settled by a good study comparing autistic children who received Hep B at birth and then MMR with neurotypical children who have never been vaccinated (who are plentiful). Maybe a physician who has made millions off of vaccines and is a highly vocal vaccine proponent would propose/conduct such a study; it is obvious why vaccine makers would not like to do so.

Until and unless we compare the vaccinated to the never vaccinated, we will never know if vaccines, whether in general or specifically, result in better health outcomes for those who are administered them.
And forget the argument that people who don't vaccinate might be different and that might affect the results: If the never-vaccinated are healthier than the vaccinated, wouldn't we want to know it? We could then go about trying to understand why.
The failure to do such studies speaks volumes.
As far as using the excuse that there are limitations and difficulties with conducting such studies, fine. Don't do them. But stop pretending you know that the benefits of vaccines (far) outweigh the risks.
Finally, the hue and cry over the Wakefield paper is so out of proportion to the alleged wrongdoings, one has to wonder who's behind it and why it is happening.
If those who are claiming such egregious flaws really cared whether or not the Wakefield paper was fatally in err, they would do a properly designed and conducted retrospective study comparing those who have only gotten the MMR to those who have never been vaccinated at all. Only then might we get closer to the truth.
But that isn't going to happen, because there is no official interest in really knowing it.
So instead we get a smoke-screen designed to quell further debate and put the fear of God (or something) in anyone contemplating challenging the status quo.
Competing interests: I am President of the only website on the Internet that goes to great effort to publish all sides of the vaccination controversy.

Homeopathy STOPPED Epidemic in Cuba
Large-scale application of highly-diluted bacteria for Leptospirosis epidemic control.
Bracho G, Varela E, Fernández R, Ordaz B, Marzoa N, Menéndez J, García L, Gilling E, Leyva R, Rufín R, de la Torre R, Solis RL, Batista N, Borrero R, Campa C.
BACKGROUND: Leptospirosis is a zoonotic disease of major importance in the tropics where the incidence peaks in rainy seasons. Natural disasters represent a big challenge to Leptospirosis prevention strategies especially in endemic regions. Vaccination is an effective option but of reduced effectiveness in emergency situations. Homeoprophylactic interventions might help to control epidemics by using highly-diluted pathogens to induce protection in a short time scale. We report the results of a very large-scale homeoprophylaxis (HP) intervention against Leptospirosis in a dangerous epidemic situation in three provinces of Cuba in 2007.
METHODS: Forecast models were used to estimate possible trends of disease incidence. A homeoprophylactic formulation was prepared from dilutions of four circulating strains of Leptospirosis. This formulation was administered orally to 2.3 million persons at high risk in an epidemic in a region affected by natural disasters. The data from surveillance were used to measure the impact of the intervention by comparing with historical trends and non-intervention regions.
RESULTS: After the homeoprophylactic intervention a significant decrease of the disease incidence was observed in the intervention regions. No such modifications were observed in non-intervention regions. In the intervention region the incidence of Leptospirosis fell below the historic median. This observation was independent of rainfall.
CONCLUSIONS: The homeoprophylactic approach was associated with a large reduction of disease incidence and control of the epidemic. The results suggest the use of HP as a feasible tool for epidemic control, further research is warranted.

Most Medical Trials are Invalid Due to Not Using Harmless Placebo
In a genuine medical trial, the medicinal product is supposed to be tested against a completely harmless substance, such as water or a sugar pill, however, in most trials a harmful placebo is given so that both sides have side-effects and it looks as if the medicine is safe. For instance, the placebo in Gardasil trials was aluminium and this has many side-effects.
Now a review of medical studies has found that most of them are scientifically invalid:
No regulations govern placebo composition. The composition of placebos can influence trial outcomes and merits reporting.
Most studies did not disclose the composition of the study placebo. Disclosure was less common for pills than for injections and other treatments (8.2% vs. 26.7%; P = 0.002).
Limitation: Journals with high impact factors may not be representative.
Conclusion: Placebos were seldom described in randomized, controlled trials of pills or capsules. Because the nature of the placebo can influence trial outcomes, placebo formulation should be disclosed in reports of placebo-controlled trials.

Government scraps swine flu vaccination campaign for under fives
The Department of Health has revealed it is to scrap plans for healthy children under five to continue to be vaccinated against swine flu, just three months after urging GPs to vaccinate more than three million youngsters against the outbreak.
In a major U-Turn, the Chief Medical Officer, Sir Liam Donaldson, revealed the programme of vaccinating healthy children would wrap up at the end of next month, although GPs have been told to continue to try to vaccinate children until then.
Extending the vaccination campaign to children has proved a disappointment, with just 17% of children in England having had the vaccine according to the latest uptake figures.
GP leaders blamed protracted negotiations with the Government, which refused to provide concessions on GP workload via a national deal, for the lack of uptake in a campaign which ended up being launched as a hugely patchwork and bitter set of local arrangements between PCTs and GPs.
The move to scrap child vaccination against swine flu will also be seen as vindication by many GPs, with the majority of respondents to a Pulse poll in December claiming that it was a waste of NHS resources.
A spokesperson for the Department of Health said: ‘The programme was extended to young healthy children because more people in this age group were hospitalised.
‘We want to ensure that the NHS has the opportunity to complete this programme of work so that all children in this age group can have the vaccine if their parents and carers wish.
Click here to find out more!
‘Following advice from JCVI, and given the low levels of swine flu virus circulating, the risk from the virus is lower for young children than the clinical risk groups so we will not be extending that part of the programme beyond the end of March.’
It means GPs have an impossible task of vaccinating more than 2.5 million children in just over a month, with only 518,000 doses having been given to healthy children to date.
Dr Dean Marshall, a GPC negotiator on swine flu, said: ‘I believe the take up of the vaccine among children would have been much greater had we not wasted several weeks in negotiations with the Government which meant the campaign did not get under way until after Christmas, by which time fears over the illness had lessened.'
The Government also revealed that just 32% of all target groups had been vaccinated in England, which confirms Pulse's predictions that the vast majority of GPs will fail to receive reduced thresholds in this year's patient survey, after the GPC's national deal based on vaccination of at risk groups aged between 5-65.
Sir Liam revealed overall figures for vaccination take up were far worse in England than other parts of the UK and elsewhere in Europe, adding: ‘We continue to receive anecdotal accounts of people not being aware of their need and entitlement for vaccination or believing that vaccination clinics are unavailable.
It would be really helpful if you [GPs] were able to check whether awareness and access to the vaccine is high in your practice. That way we can ensure that this important protection is widely in place.’

Some Interesting Comments From GP's!
* Mary - Dunstable | 19 Feb 10
It does make one wonder! Either the threat from swine flu to the under 5s is real - in which case the campaign to immunise them needs to be continued despite current low uptake **OR** the threat is not real, in which case it should stop now! Not in the surgery and not sure whether the LES (terms imposed by DH) was a target or IOS fee - but should a clinically necessary immunisation campaign depend on uptake? If so, why did we continue with MMR when the uptake was reduced by the autism scare?
* Stephen - Bury | 22 Feb 10
Why continue to vaccinate the under fives for another 5 weeks if it is no longer thought to be necessary based on risk vs benefit and how do we explain this to confused parents?
* chris | 22 Feb 10
So is there a risk or isn't there? If not, just stop now, if there is continue! The whole thing seems very wooly and lacking in evidence based arguments. The uptake in our area is low as letters from PCT have only gone out in the last month to invite children in. There does seem to be a lot of factors impeding the roll out of the vaccine when if we had had the go ahead we were all prepared to work hard and get it done for everyone before Xmas!
* anglea | 22 Feb 10
So why have some practices today recieved letters from DOH telling them to continue vaccinating all at risks and under 5's through spring and summer? Left hand/right hand or wrong information?
* david | 22 Feb 10
Does nothing at all for public confidence in GP advice we give to patients based on the official line(how many of us believed in it anyway?). Also now advised to give to travellers to Southern hemisphere - from a 10 dose vial- ??? Do we throw the rest away?Speechless!
* John | 22 Feb 10
I am shocked by the spin of Sir Liam. Not long ago he dissed the pulse survey as being 'non-scientific' and pointed to another survey as being more scientific that suggested over 70% of parents would go for the vaccine. Of course the Pulse survey was very accurate and the other survey favoured by Sir Liam turned out to be complete rubbish. How can such an obvious spin doctor who ignores the observation of reality in favour of propaganda that the Third Reich would be proud of hope to continue? No wonder he has resigned. He can't go soon enough for me. Tip for his replacement - more hard science to back up your claims regarding the safety and efficacy of said vaccine and far less political spin and propaganda.
* neil | 22 Feb 10
The biggest problem that we have had on the front line is that swine flu has only been a mild illness. It never lived upto the apocolyptic chaos originally portrayed - 65,000 deaths, food and infrastrucure shortages... Unfortunately the DoH had commited itself to 60 million doses of vaccine and a stockpile of Tamiflu due to expire in 2010. Lessons learnt:- 1.Pandemic doesn't = serious. Perhaps the old epidemiology definition needs to be restored. 2. If you can't convince and engage the healthcare teams of the value of vaccination then your stockpiles are going nowhere
* margaret | 26 Feb 10
The decision by the Department of Health to simply abandon the under fives swine flu vaccination programme begs more questions than it answers. For a start why are we supposed to continue to vaccinate children tikl the end of March - if the DH has carried out a careful cost-risk benefit analysis and decided it is no longer thought to be necessary. And how do we explain this to confused parents? I know the decision to stockpile the vaccine had to made quickly and at a time when it was far from clear how serious the pandemic was going to be. But what's changed since the decision was made to vaccinate children to now? Very little it seems. This decision seems to be based on financial expediencey rather than clinical judgment. Is 'well if noone wants it let's not bother anymore' a reasonable way to run a vaccination campaign? However - maybe it's a rather fitting way to end a rather ignominius chapter in the DH's history

Andrew Wakefield and the GMC Hearing - VAN UK'S Comment:
The GMC recently announced that Dr. Andrew Wakefield was dishonest, his study was false and he had a callous disregard for children.
VAN UK would like to point out that the case paper involving 12 children was NOT a study but a case paper and Dr. Wakefield asked that a study be undertaken to establish if there was a link between MMR, autism and bowel disease. He also said that such a link at the time had not been 'proven', so the DOH's reaction has been a massive over-reaction and in our opinion, somewhat guilty. A guilty party always goes on the defensive.
If the DOH were truly concerned about children dying from measles (and incidently, 96% of deaths are in the third world), then they would have continued to allow parents access to the single measles vaccine on the NHS. The fact that they withdrew it, leaving a lot of pro-vaccine parents unwilling to vaccinate, would seem to us rather counter productive. If you believe in vaccines as they do then any vaccine is better than none.
Ever since the publication of the 1998 case paper, the DOH have presented studies supposedly to 'prove' that MMR doesn't cause autism, instead of doing what they were supposed to, determining what DOES cause it and investigating the bowel symptoms of the children, most of whom are in serious pain. One of the mother's of a child in the paper told me she cannot even take her child to the GP because they say to treat him would be 'too political' and when he has had serious medical events happen to him, the A+E staff have told her they will 'only treat the emergency, not the condition'.
These children have been dumped like hot potatoes and no one from the medical profession except Dr. Wakefield and his team have cared to help them. Since when did politics come before pain and suffering?
The children - some of them now young adults - were not allowed to state their views on their treatment at the GMC hearing and for those who were too disabled to do so, their parents were denied the opportunity to speak for them. Not one parent of the 12 children involved complained about Andrew Wakefield, in fact, some said he had been helping their children and relieving their pain.
It seems to us that it is the DOH who has a callous disregard for the wellbeing of children.
To retract a paper is not going to make the issue go away. There have now been studies done in the US and court hearings showing a link between autism and vaccines and there has been a very recent paper (listed on the autism, mercury and vaccines page of this site) that replicated Andrew Wakefield's findings of bowel disease in autistic children.
If a doctor cannot even question something because it is against popular theory, that is not science and we feel that the Lancet has lost some of its credibility as a result.

Motion For European Assembly to Investigate WHO and Drug Companies
In order to promote their patented drugs and vaccines against flu, pharmaceutical companies have influenced scientists and official agencies, responsible for public health standards, to alarm governments worldwide. They have made them squander tight health care resources for inefficient vaccine strategies and needlessly exposed millions of healthy people to the risk of unknown side-effects of insufficiently tested vaccines.
The "birds-flu“-campaign (2005/06) combined with the "swine-flu“-campaign seem to have caused a great deal of damage not only to some vaccinated patients and to public health budgets, but also to the credibility and accountability of important international health agencies. The definition of an alarming pandemic must not be under the influence of drug-sellers.
The member states of the Council of Europe should ask for immediate investigations on the consequences at national as well as European level.
Direct Rebuttal To Health Protection Scotland and Scottish Health Minister Nicola Sturgeon re Their Comments on Our Protests
Dear Health Protection Scotland
I would like to directly challenge you after you asserted in a newspaper article in the Scotsman, by Richard Bath, that my organisation was 'persuing a reckless cause' that would lead to the deaths of babies and mothers from swine flu, due to my organisation heading protests against the untested vaccine.
There is NO PROOF for your assertion that my organisation would do any such thing and ample proof that you, Health Protection Scotland, are being reckless with the lives of thousands of unborn infants and their mothers.
According to this NHS training pack for immunisers, here:
both vaccines, Pandemrix and Celvapan HAVE NOT BEEN EVALUATED for side-effects or contraindications so it is basically a big experiment and you have no idea if the patient you are injecting is contraindicated or what type of side-effects they might experience. It has also NOT been tested on pregnant women so to recommend it for pregnant women is irresponsible, particularly when the Pandemrix version contains mercury which has been detected in evalated levels in autistic children (Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons Volume 8 Number 3 Fall 2003) and Merck, a vaccine manufacturer, say thimerosal can cause 'considerable damage to health and may even be lethal' -
My question would be why you are injecting a potentially lethal substance into a pregnant woman?
Another study found that even tiny injections of thimerosal can cause autism - 'As a result of the present findings, in combination with the brain pathology observed in patients diagnosed with autism, the present study helps to support the possible biological plausibility for how low-dose exposure to mercury from thimerosal-containing vaccines may be associated with autism' - (Induction of metallothionein in mouse cerebellum and cerebrum with low-dose thimerosal injection, Cell Biology and Toxicology, 0742-2091 (Print) 1573-6822 (Online), 9 April 2009).
The Journal of Pediatric Infectious Diseases also said that governments should bring in laws that prevent the use of thimerosal in vaccines - (Journal of Pediatric Infectious Diseases, Volume 4, Number 3 / 2009) and in many other countries in the world, H1N1 vaccine is NOT recommended for pregnant women. In fact, a data sheet for Afluria H1N1 vaccine shows that the vaccine SHOULD NOT BE USED IN PREGNANT OR NURSING MOTHERS and has not been tested in such groups:
Pregnancy Category C: Animal reproduction studies have not been conducted with Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine or AFLURIA. It is also not known whether these vaccines can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman or can affect reproduction capacity. Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine should be given to a pregnant woman only if clearly needed.
Neither Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine nor AFLURIA has been evaluated in nursing mothers. It is not known whether Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine or AFLURIA is excreted in human milk. Because many drugs are excreted in human milk, caution should be exercised when Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine is administered to a nursing woman.'
Although this brand is not being used in the UK, they are all very similar H1N1 vaccines.
According to a 10 November government document, plans are in place to mandate H1N1 vaccine and exclude unvaccinated children from school -
This is a violation of human rights and since the drug is clearly experimental, admitted in the NHS document, it is against the nuremburg code. The first directive of the nuremburg code states that:
'The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential. This means that the person involved should have legal capacity to give consent; should be so situated as to be able to exercise free power of choice, without the intervention of any element of force, fraud, deceit, duress, over-reaching, or other ulterior form of constraint or coercion; and should have sufficient knowledge and comprehension of the elements of the subject matter involved as to enable him to make an understanding and enlightened decision. This latter element requires that before the acceptance of an affirmative decision by the experimental subject there should be made known to him the nature, duration, and purpose of the experiment; the method and means by which it is to be conducted; all inconveniences and hazards reasonable to be expected; and the effects upon his health or person which may possibly come from his participation in the experiment.' - (http://ohsr.od.nih.gov/guidelines/nuremberg.html).
So even suggesting that vaccines could be coerced is illegal.
The JCVI meeting minutes for 18 February 2009 said that they would only introduce influenza vaccines for pregnant women if it was cost effective and reduced respiratory disease in neonates:
'the vaccination of pregnant women was only likely to be cost-effective if there was evidence to suggest that vaccination in the late stages of pregnancy reduced influenza in neonates.' - http://www.dh.gov.uk/prod_consum_dh/groups/dh_digitalassets/@dh/@ab/documents/digitalasset/dh_097411.pdf
So in actual fact, they introduced a vaccine that had NO EVIDENCE of reducing disease in newborns and were only interested in introducing it if it made enough money. It seems money is more important to this government than the health and wellbeing of mothers and their babies.
A report in Le Parisen newspaper in France told of a mother who lost her baby at term after being vaccinated and the baby had H1N1 in his tissues (Le Parisien, 14 December 2009) and another report in a Swedish paper told of a previously healthy mother who had a brain haemorrhage after vaccination and her baby had to be delivered two months early - http://www.aftonbladet.se/nyheter/article6283276.ab
There are dozens of women in the UK writing to the newspapers with similar stories, so you, Health Protection Scotland, are endangering the lives of many, and all for an illness that is as mild as normal flu. If you look at NHS choices flu and swine flu pages, you will see the symptoms are exactly the same:
Doctors are NOT taking swabs for this so they have no idea if the person actually has H1N1 or not and the person gets diagnosed over the phone without even being seen just to boost up swine flu notifications to encourage sales of your untested vaccine and misdiagnoses over the phone line have actually led to children dying of meningitis.
This for an illness that has killed far less than regular flu. One in three people get cancer, yet you don't scream from the roof tops about how everyone is going to die in the same way you have done with swine flu.
You are highly irresponsible and put money, profit and government agenda ahead of the health of mothers and their babies.
You should be ashamed of yourself,
Vaccine Awareness Network UK.
THIS LETTER HAS BEEN SENT TO HEALTH PROTECTION SCOTLAND, THE SCOTTISH HEALTH MINISTER AND THE SCOTSMAN NEWSPAPER. NEITHER THE MINISTER NOR HEALTH PROTECTION SCOTLAND HAVE REPLIED AND TO MY KNOWLEDGE THE NEWSPAPER HAS NOT PRINTED MY REBUTTAL - 23/12/09.
UK Parliment Document Saying That They May Mandate Swine Flu Vaccine
Powers to impose compulsory vaccination
Most legal powers needed to manage a pandemic are provided under the Public Health Acts covering England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, which empower local authorities to require examination, hospitalisation, or isolation of infected persons, create a criminal offence relating to exposing others to risk of infection, and allow some controls over school attendance and playgrounds.
In other words, although local authorities cannot force people to be vaccinated under those powers, they can for example refuse to admit children to school unless they have been vaccinated.
However, the Government has extremely broad powers for tackling an emergency, in the Civil Contingencies Act 2004. This includes a special procedure for making regulations in an emergency, if existing legislation could not relied upon without the risk of serious delay, and various other conditions are met.
22 Scope of emergency regulations
(1) Emergency regulations may make any provision which the person making the regulations is satisfied is appropriate for the purpose of preventing, controlling or mitigating an aspect or effect of the emergency in respect of which the regulations are made.
(2) In particular, emergency regulations may make any provision which the person making the regulations is satisfied is appropriate for the purpose of—
(a) protecting human life, health or safety,
(b) treating human illness or injury,
Thus, if the situation became serious enough for compulsory vaccination to be considered necessary, regulations could be introduced under the Civil Contingencies Act 2004 and these could include penalties for non-compliance.
This is what we're up against! If you value your right to choose, if you want to retain your right to say what is put into your body, even if you are pro vaccinations but think people have a right to accept or reject medical intervention, please get involved and forget about writing lobbying letters to your government officials, it won't work, take action instead (let me train you step-by-step)
