Just How Safe Are Vaccines?

Let’s take a look at the arguments for and against vaccines before we dig a little deeper.

The Arguments For Vaccinations

  • Vaccines can save children’s lives.
  • The ingredients in vaccines are considered safe in the quantities used.
  • Major medical organisations support their use.
  • Adverse reactions to vaccines are extremely rare.
  • Vaccines protect the “herd.”
  • Vaccines save children and their parents time and money.
  • Vaccines protect future generations.
  • Vaccines eradicated smallpox and have nearly eradicated other diseases such as polio.
  • Vaccine-preventable diseases have not disappeared so vaccination is still necessary.
  • Vaccines provide economic benefits for society.

The Arguments Against Vaccinations

  • Vaccines can cause serious and sometimes fatal side effects.
  • Vaccines contain harmful ingredients.
  • The government should not intervene in personal medical choices.
  • Mandatory vaccines infringe upon constitutionally protected religious freedoms.
  • Vaccines can contain ingredients some people consider immoral or otherwise objectionable.
  • Vaccines are unnatural, and natural immunity is more effective than vaccination.
  • There may be cause to question whether we are right to trust pharmaceutical companies, FDA, and CDC to make and regulate safe vaccines.
  • Diseases that vaccines target have essentially disappeared.



Side Effects of Vaccination

Many doctors do not support vaccinations, and have shared their findings and opinion with regard to how often the approach fails patients and in some cases creates new disease. Research has shown that Thimerosal in particular, should be removed from all vaccines as there is epidemiological evidence supporting an association between increasing organic -Hg exposure and Thimerosal containing childhood vaccines.
Some believe that vaccine manufacturers and health authorities have known about the dangers associated with vaccines for a long time, and have chosen to withhold this information from public knowledge in order to manipulate the scientific data to maintain “herd immunity“.

Herd immunity (or community immunity) means that when a “critical portion” of a population is vaccinated against a contagious disease it is unlikely that an outbreak of the disease will occur so most members of the community will be protected.
There was evidence that the meningococcal vaccine could potentially lead to anaphylaxis – a severe, whole body allergic reaction – in children allergic to ingredients in the vaccine.

Other studies found the MMR vaccine or DTaP vaccine can cause seizures or a temporary “shocklike” state in 1 in 14,000 people, and acute encephalitis (brain swelling) in 11 in 1 million. However, the diseases it prevents — diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis — are fatal in 1 in 20 cases, 1 in 10 cases, and 1 in 1,500 cases, respectively.

Most doctors say that the odds of experiencing a severe vaccine-related injury are greatly outweighed by the dangers of catching a vaccine-preventable disease. The measles vaccine, for instance, can cause a temporary reduction in platelets in 1 in 30,000 children, but 1 in 2,000 will die if they get measles itself.

The one thing we have to bear in mind is that there is no 100% certainty that the highlighted symptoms were caused by the vaccines. We have accepted the many side effects that are a fact of life with medications, and to some degree this is expected with vaccines too. Soreness, redness, mild fevers, trouble breathing, hives, feeling weak or dizzy and sometimes swelling at the spot where your child gets a shot. In most cases, this should go away in a day or two. Evidence strongly suggests that more worrying side effects such as severe allergic reactions, seizures, hearing loss and severe pain, from vaccines are incredibly rare.
