Pro-Longed Crying, Breathing Difficulties, Turning Blue After Vaccination
'I am a mother of five children and my youngest is 7 months. I have always had an issue with vaccinations since my mum died in 1983 after having a hayfever injection. Nobody gave any answers to her death and the whole thing was swept under the carpet and reports of her death disappeared from record!!!
I had my first and second child vaccinated because I didn't know any better. They had typical reactions- being unwell, temperature.
My third child became very distressed after his 2nd jab and was unconsolable to the point where i went to a neighbour for help.
We eventually settled him to sleep and lay him down while we had a cup of tea. After ten minutes or so my friend went over to see him and shouted he'd gone a funny colour. He looked deathly pale and his lips were a bluish colour. His breathing was strange almost like a gasp. I panicked and instinctively grabbed him and he took a massive breath and started crying again. He was very unsettled for a few days and cried for hours with a high pitched scream.
I didn't take him to the doctors or call for help which was stupid but I thought no one would be believe me and as the doctors surgery was aware of my family history I was constantly told that my fears were unfounded and that just because my mother had died after having a vaccination did not mean my children would.
My fourth child had his vaccinations and was unwell for weeks after having them but as not as much as my previous child. My fourth child was on the catch up scheme for the PCV immunisation and I questioned this vaccine only to be told don't worry and that it had been rigoursly tested. I let him have it and with in hours he was so poorly. High pitched crying and stopped feeding. I rang the doctors who told me not to worry and give him calpol which I had already done. Days later I began to notice he wasn't himself in many ways. He wasn't eating , he stopped sleeping, he wasn't interested in playing and just lay or sat where ever i put him. I rang the doctors again and they told me to see how he went. Everyone that saw him commented on the fact that he'd stopped smiling and his grandparents informed me recently that they thought something had gone terribly wrong and that he was permantly damaged.
I continued to call my health visitors and went to see them saying that something was wrong with my baby. They had no time for me. After 3 months he went for his routine assessment and when he was weighed he had not put on any more weight in 3 months. Now the Health visitors showed some concern and said 'oh, he's not been putting on any weight... has he been eating?' I could of screamed.
I did not allow him to continue with this vaccination and he has not had his hib booster. My latest child had pneumonia in the first few weeks and was hospitalised. I was frowned upon because I was questioning whether to have the vaccinations done and at 4 months he had his first immunisation and his second 5 weeks later. His first one went ok but was alittle unsettled. After is second he seemed ok but the next morning he was so unsettled. He cried constantly, had diaohrea and was sick. Everytime he ate something he was sick and had diahorea. I rang the nurse who said this was normal. He was so unwell for days and it was at least three weeks before he seemed himself again. '

I am sorry to hear about your mum and your children.
Before I begin I must say I am not a medical professional so I cannot give you medical advice.
The high pitched cry you describe is called the 'cri encephalique' and is neurological irritation. It is caused by the brain swelling which in turn causes a very painful headache that makes the baby cry in a high pitched way. It is well documented in medical literature. Some times this irritation is temporary and the child makes a full recovery and other times it can be so severe it is fatal. Either way it is a serious reaction. Any sort of encephalitis and high pitched or prolonged crying is a contraindication to further vaccines (see the Merck Manual page for details) so personally if that was my child and I had that type of family history I would not give anymore vaccines.
While pneumonia is sometimes serious - the majority of cases can be treated successfully with antibiotics. Vaccines have been known to cause pneumonia (the rotavirus vaccine in the States has been documented to cause pneumonia) and the prevnar pneumonia jab can cause superbug ear infections (see the prevnar page for details).
Whatever you decide I would continue to breast feed for as long as possible (I am still breast feeding my 17 month old and intend to until he is about 4 years old because it is so important for his defences). Take high dose vitamin C yourself so that this will cross the breast milk and give your baby a bit of a boost. You might also consider a homeopathic antidote to the shots he has had. These are called nosodes and might help clear his system. I'm not a homeopath but if you contact the Society of Homeopaths they can put you in touch with someone who can help you. If you do decide to continue then the vitamin C is vital for a vaccinated child.
Vaccination Of Sick Children
I have a 3-year-old daughter, a 15-month-old daughter, and I'm currently pregnant with my third child (who won't receive any vaccines, thank you!). Early this December, my 3-year-old had her normal, scheduled DTaP, HIB, and Flu inhaler vaccines.
I knew nothing about vaccines at the time, and was just following instructions from her pediatrician. She reacted. Her entire leg swole up, turned hard and hot and had bright red circles. She was sick, with a fever, wouldn't eat, wouldn't sleep. We went back to the doctor. They told us she was fine and normal and go home.
I begun researching. What I've found has devastated me and wracked me with guilt over allowing toxins to be injected into my children for 3 years now!
Monday, my 15-month-old daughter Maya had a wellchild checkup. She is extremely sick with a very nasty bout of a respiratory infection and ear infection. Both of my daughters are currently quite sick, thanks to germs from their baby cousin at a Christmas gathering. I told the doctor that she is very sick, isn't eating, has a higher temperature than normal, among all the usual respiratory infection symptoms. They brought in the papers for the vaccines anyway. She was scheduled to receive a Polio, injectable Flu vaccine, and MMR! While SICK! I asked why they would vaccinate her while sick and was told that "some vaccines are okay to give to sick kids, because they... er... don't have live things in them." Seriously, I was told that! I, of course, told them that not only would she not be receiving any vaccines today, she would also not be receiving any more vaccines period.
Her doctor got all snobby and heated with me, calling my information "bullshit" and telling me he wanted to see what my sources were. Ha! I don't have enough printer paper to print out all my sources! I signed a refusal form saying she wouldn't be getting vaccines today, and was treated like a leper.
My question for you is... can I report this pediatrician for vaccinating sick children? It's common knowledge and information among the handouts given with the vaccines that you don't vaccinate a sick child! He could be potentially injuring and killing many children by doing this while their immune systems are clearly busy elsewhere! I feel compelled to act to try to avoid any heartbreak for other parents who haven't researched and are as I was this time last month, completely clueless about the dangers. Any information you can give me would be greatly appreciated!
From K. Banks.

Congratulations on your forthcoming new baby. I take it you're in the States? You are right in that fever and active infection are contraindications to vaccines (see the Merck Manual on the subject - a page of which is on our site). Your child's doctor is wrong about the vaccines not having 'live things' in them as the MMR has three live viruses.
Who is the doctor's employer? Is he governed by the American Academy of Pediatrics? Because you could approach them and find out what the complaints procedure is. The clinic where you took your child should also have a complaints procedure. His use of language, ie. 'bullshit' etc is not an acceptable way to speak to a client even if he disagrees with you. You are the customer and if you choose not to accept a product you should not be sworn at. He should also be deferring vaccines in children with symptoms such as yours.
Another option is to make a report with VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System). I regularly read reports from VAERS and I have noticed they also report malpractice in addition to vaccine injuries, for instance, when someone injects the wrong vaccine or gives two doses by accident or administers it incorrectly. You could make a report of the doctor attempting to vaccinate while your child has fever and infection and attempting to use the MMR live vaccines while she is ill. You could also report your child's previous reaction, as it isn't just about severe reactions. They allow reports of less severe reactions too.
It is common that when a child is experiencing side-effects, doctors will say this is normal and not offer any help other than to say give him tylenol, which studies have shown is counter-productive. I am sorry this has happened to you.
Stay strong and perhaps think about not attending well baby visits. The purpose of well baby visits is to vaccinate and some more enlightened pediatricians will tell you not to attend them if you're not having shots. Some mothers like to go anyway to weigh the child and listen to her heart etc just as reassurance that she is healthy, and others like myself only go to the doctor when the child is sick.
Thank you From A Doctor
Vaccines And Aborted Fetal Tissue
I just wanted to say thank you for your really useful website.
I am a doctor, but have to admit I only recently came across the fact that some vaccines are made using foetal cell lines when looking something up on the Catholic Medical Association web site and was really sickened. I have just had a baby and do not want her to have vaccines manufactured in this way but have found it very hard to find an updated list. My daughter is due her first vaccines next week. When I explained to my GP and asked which vaccine they would be using so I can check it is OK first, she was also surprised. She has been in practise for a long time and like me, had never heard anything about the use of foetal cell lines in vaccines. We looked it up in the BNF, but this does not give any information on cell lines and so I was very grateful to come across your comprehensive and clear web-site.
I will be telling people I know about the un-ethical way in which these vaccines are made, the more people who know, the more pressure should be placed on the drug companies to change their practise.
VAN UK'S Reply:
Thank you and congratulations on your new baby. It is possible to order in vaccines without aborted tissue, but getting more difficult because companies are stopping making single vaccines and only doing the MMR etc and the ones without are usually single vaccines. I don't vaccinate my children but I do believe in supporting parents and if they chose to vaccinate, they should have all the information first and be able to do it in a way that is least risky to the child and as ethically as possible. I don't think it's true informed consent if people don't know what they're injecting, hence my website.
If you are vaccinating and need help getting the jabs without aborted tissue, I know some private clinics that do it.
Reply From Dr. J About Informed Consent
I agree informed consent is the key and every parent has the right and more importantly the responsibility to act in the best interest of their child. Even so I appreciate the barriers you must have come up against by choosing not to vaccinate. I find that many health care workers only pay lip service to informed consent and really mean ' you couldn't possibly understand properly, otherwise you would follow the guidelines and do what I'm telling you to do'.
I find that if you don't fall into line at best they treat you as eccentric and at worst, dangerous. I have come across this bullying mentality even though I am a doctor working within the profession and dread to think what you must have been through.
Pediacel doesn't use a foetal cell line thank goodness, so this won't be an issue this time but the only alternative to MMR is single vaccines and this will be more difficult, but I have two years to work out a solution to this.
Constant Nausea, Diarrhea, Seizures, Migraines, Fainting, Tremors, Leg Paralysis, Facial Paralysis, Memory Loss, Joint Pain, Back Pain, Chronic Fatigue After Gardasil
My daughter, Victoria, has been ill since February 2008.
Here is some history. I will be as brief as possible. My daughter had her first Gardasil vaccination November 2007. Her second vaccination was in the beginning of February 2008. Immediately after her second vaccination, Victoria experienced severe diarrhea and was nauseous for about eight weeks. She had blood work done many times and doctors thought she had a virus. On March 31, 2008, she had her first seizure. My daughter has treated with many neurologists, all of whom have not related her seizures to Gardasil. Meanwhile, there are quite a few hundred people that I have found over the internet through my numerous postings and through Erin Brockovich, and their daughters are all experiencing the same symptoms, which occurred after the Gardasil vaccination. We have actually formed a group and share our daughters' stories, symptoms and information. My daughter has had CT scans, MRI's, MRA's, EEG's, blood work and was hospitalized at an epilepsy center in the video EEG monitoring unit for two separate weeks in May 2008 and September 2008. She was put on many different seizure medications. After the normal EEG results, she was taken off all medications. Her SED rate has always been high and she does have protein in her urine, but doctors do not seem concerned. I was told that her red blood are small, but this apparently is not concerning either.
My daughter has been seen by several neurologists, a psychiatrist, psychologist, several neuropsychologists, an immunologist, several infectious disease doctors, and also treated a at Wellness Center for a period of time. Wellness Center physicians believe that my daughter may have Lyme disease that was dormant until the Gardasil vaccine. Infectious disease doctors differ. Which doctors are correct? I have no idea.
My daughter currently experiences the following symptoms: non-epileptic seizures, migraines, fainting, tremors, twitches, numbness, intermittent leg paralysis and facial paralysis, tingling, staring or blank episodes, eye pain, joint pain, neck pain, back pain, memory loss, confusion, brain fog, regression, mood swings and chronic fatigue. She continues to have bouts of nausea and diarrhea. She has not been in school since April 2008. My daughter can never be left home alone. She can't go to school, go out with her friends or work or has little "normalcy" in her life. She has very few good days and always says she doesn't feel good.
I do not know which way to turn for help. We have seen so many doctors and I can't seem to find anyone willing to help my daughter. There are so many other young girls who have the same exact symptoms as my daughter and the one thing that all of the girls seem to have in common is the Gardasil vaccination.
We are on a fixed income, as most people, and we have expended many thousands of dollars in an effort to seek medical opinions and assistance. Although we do have medical insurance, it is very difficult to find doctors willing to treat my daughter who will accept our HMO. Also, there are no "traditional medical doctors" who will relate my daughter's symptoms to Gardasil as I am told "there is not enough information available" about the vaccine and doctors believe it to be "safe" . The vaccine has been available for less than three years. Meanwhile, there are some doctors who are making the correlation between Gardasil and many of the girls' symptoms. However, the only doctors I know of right now are in California and Kansas. Other doctors are willing to "try" treatment, most of which is "homeopathic" in nature and extremely costly. Once again, I must reiterate that there are so many other young girls experiencing negative symptoms.
Each and every night, I check on my daughter many times in the middle of the night to make sure she is still breathing (like we ALL did when they were babies). I have a chime on her bedroom door so that every time she opens it, I know she has walked out of her room. I had a deadbolt put on the front door of our home with a key that can be removed from the inside. I never leave the key in the door for fear that Victoria will be confused after a seizure or when she has memory loss, and leave our home. (This has happened many times and she has been missing). When she is in the shower, I have to either stand outside the door and/or keep asking her "are you okay?"
Each and everyday, I cry and wonder if Victoria will be next one to die from adverse reactions to Gardasil.
We are in desperate need of medical treatment for my daughter. I have run out of ideas, doctors to treat with and finances have dwindled. I do not know which direction to turn. Any thoughts are most appreciated, especially from the medical community.
The National Vaccine Information Center is in the process of circulating a petition to have Gardasil investigated by the government. There are more than 15,000 reported cases of adverse effects from the vaccine which have been reported to the NVIC (many of the adverse effects are extremely serious) and approximately 38 deaths have been reported.
Please feel free to forward this information.
Thank you for your time and attention.
From J S.
VAN UK'S Reply:
I am very sorry to hear about everything that your daughter is suffering through. I personally think Gardasil is dangerous. They have put sodium borate in it which is ant powder and it is not meant for internal use. I really can't imagine why they would put this in the vaccine when they know you are never supposed to put this product inside you. I think that this may be one of the reasons why so many girls are having sickness/diarrhea and seizures.
If you're not getting anywhere with the doctors or homeopathics in treating her, I'm not sure what to suggest. Have you tried detox? (like what they do with autistic children - eliminate all the chemicals from the house, have only organic food, no cows milk, wheat etc). Some parents have successfully reversed their children's autism by chelation therapy - drawing out all the heavy metals in the body. I know the Thoughtful House center does this. I know she's not autistic but maybe trying similar methods might help her excrete the vaccine toxins? You could try giving her massive doses of vitamin C to help her immune system fight it (don't get any with aspartame or talc in it, though, it has to be natural). My own daughter is taking 5,000mgs a day for a genetic condition and she has no adverse effects. You cannot overdose on vitamin C because any that is not used is exreted. Sometimes if you have too much for your body, it can give you diarrhea but if you tried this and it didn't help after a few weeks, you could stop it or reduce it.
Another option - and your daughter might refuse this one - is breast milk. I was on a TV programme where a man in the States CURED himself of cancer by drinking breast milk. Doctors previously told him surgery and chemo were his only hope. He got 100% better by drinking fruit smoothies with breast milk in them. I know you can buy it from human milk banks but its about $3 an ounce. I know it sounds a bit icky but if she's suffering and no one knows what is wrong, any idea is worth a try.
I will post your daughter's experience on my site and hopefully drum up some more support.
Good luck in finding a cure for your daughters health problems,
Seizures, Loss Of Speech, Severe Repeated Infections And Severe Asthma From Vaccinations, In A 7 Year Old Child
There is nothing you can tell me to help I am sure but I do not know who to listen to anymore or what to do. There is so much talk and so little action. Your site says it all. Without a doubt in my mind, jewel now cannot talk, has seizures, infections, severe asmtha and a constate allergic state as a result of vaccinations. There is little quality of life there.
I am going or just plainly am broke trying everythign but what bothers me more is that it is torutous for her. the diets, the supps, the meds, the doctors it just never ends. I just want her to feel better.
Is there one treatment that stands out above others that you know of that can undue or lessen the harm from vaccinations.
VAN UK's Reply:
I am very sorry to hear about what is going on with your daughter. The only therapies that I have heard about to try and heal vaccine damage are chelation therapy to rid the body of heavy metals, detox (so taking ALL the chemicals out of her environment, even household cleaners), homeopathic antidotes to vaccination and massive doses of vitamin C. For severe damage such as your daughters, the homeopathic antidotes don't always do much - they are more for easing minor side-effects.
The Thoughtful House Center for Children is supportive of chelation therapy having very beneficial effects in sick children. See this article on the subject:
I have also heard of parents reversing autism and other vaccine damage conditions with breast milk. I wrote of a case in my book on breast feeding, that when a mother gave birth to her second child she was able to heal the autistic symptoms in her first child by feeding her expressed breast milk. I've also been on a TV programme where a man with prostate cancer cured himself of the cancer by drinking breast milk in fruit smoothies. He bought it from a human milk bank. It costs about $3 an ounce and he had a couple of ounces a day in a smoothie. He never needed any surgery, chemo or anything else and is perfectly healthy now. It has masses of antibodies in it, as well as anti-virals and it might help your child, although unfortunately it is very expensive.
Mother's Reply On Daughter With Seizures, Loss of Speech etc:
Thank you, really thank you so much for your response. Absolutely feel free to post anything I write, I have no other agenda that to try and figure out how to manage her health, get her better so she can focus on behavioral therapies. I actually bought a dynavox augmentive device as i am certain she could communicate in time once she could learn to spell. But we are unable to teach her because she spends so much time in hospital or is sick with some new virus or bacterial infection. I work full time, have three other girls and just figuring out how to get her everything she needs here is mind boggling. Then to know which to prioritize is scary as it means doing one thing in place of another.
Jewel is a patient at Thoughtful House. The doctors are fantastic but I only get to speak with them twice a year. My problem is that we live in Cebu in the Philipines and I do not have the option of leaving in the next couple of years (my being here supports Jewel's biomed treatments). The resources here are so difficult to come by and to get them here the cost is astromical as I have to get each thing just for jewel not many. I know this city needs a center, the kids here have nothing really, and Jewel spends all her time at home. The few centers they have are not clean enough for her to go into. Was working to heal her gut as per Dr. krigsman's reccomendation, and then skin test showed TB (thought she did have the BCG vaccination in Japan as an infant), so she is on antibiotics for 9 months which is damaging her gut again I think. Her siezures are increasing and i am positive it is tied to her damaged immune system but how to repair.
She was born with mild CP which had i been more informed at the time would have known that she was starting out with a weakened immune system but then I plied her with vaccinations. What i am seeing now is an immune system completely destroyed by too many vaccinations. She is alergic to everything, her asthma is severe, and she is having more seizures. Moreover, whenever there is an illness she gets it and requires hospitalization.
I will move onto chelation and see if that has an impact. Then I will try the breast milk.
VAN UK'S REPLY:
I've been looking into hyperbaric oxygen therapy for you and I would speak to the facility that you intend to have it done at. It can in rare cases, cause seizures. These are supposed to be temporary but as she already has seizures, I'd be careful. People with asthma also have to be careful. Seizures and asthma aren't total contraindications but they are decided on a case by case basis. I would discuss it with the doctor who will be doing it to see if he thinks she is a suitable candidate, and definitely only pick a facility which is staffed by physicians, as I don't think this is something that someone who isn't medically qualified should do.
Loss of Speech And Autism After Vaccination
Hi, the nephew of a friend of mine lost his ability to speak after being vaccinated and is in a special school now in Gateshead. He has started to sing with some words, thank God, so they are not without hope. I think he may be 3 or 4 years old now. I was interested to see the work of Dr Buttar who says he can take the mercury out and sort of unblock what may have been blocked - but then I realised that (most of) the mercury has been taken out now, but still the siame type of symptoms - the diagnosis is autism as you may have guessed.
I am not too keen on telling them too much about the dangers of vaccination now - it is they who have made the link incidentally - without being able to offer some hope - so I was wondering if you could point me in the direction of what can be done therapeutically to help him. Thanks a lot,
Mr A C.
VAN UK'S REPLY:
I am sorry to hear about your friend's nephew's autism. There is a technique called DAN! (defeat autism now) which was developed by the Autism Research Institute by a doctor Rimland, whose son became autistic after a DPT vaccine. See the website here:
The technique uses a variety of treatments based on the child's individual symptoms, for instance, modifying the child's diet, allergy testing, vitamin supplements, chelation therapy to get rid of heavy metals from the body, homeopathy and other support. This is known as biomedical care. Many children have reversed their symptoms and come off the autistic spectrum with this type of care, although it can take months or even years in some cases.
I don't know which country you are from but the site has lists of doctors who do the DAN! approach. I know in the UK, the Breakspear Hospital do it and there is the autism clinic, here:
If you're in the US, you can phone a helpline of the Autism Research Institute and they should be able to point you in the right direction.
vCJD From Vaccines And Blood Products
I came across your very informative site. My only son Andew died of vCJD aged just 24 years of age here in the UK on 16th december 2007. As well as being Andrew's mum I am also a freelance journalist and have produced two documentaries, one for BBC 1.
People have died of vcjd through blood products, medical proceedures and transplants so its highly likely that my son and other victims of vCJD may have been infected by vaccines containing BSE infected material or vCJD rogue prions. I would like to offer my reserach and information to your webstie and wonder if you could let your members know about the 'justice for andy' site. Thanks so much for reading this email. Two young men from Eastleigh, Southampton died of vCJD after having polio vaccines from the same batch at the same clinic aroun the same time.
When my only son lay dying he said, "Find out who did this to me, mum, and expose them" and he was always thinking of others. This must never happen again, the public need informed and educated. Choice is something that I didn't have in the 1980s and 1990s....if I had known then what I did now how vaccines were sourced and the infected animals that were used to process vaccines my son would not have been innoculated and may well still be alive.
I remain forever heartbroken.
For more information on vaccines and vCJD see our new page on Vaccines, BSE and vCJD. Also see Christine's site: www.justice4andy.com
ME AND CFS FROM A TETANUS VACCINATION
Just a note to thank you for the info I have just read, on your site.
Your calm, understated style is an incredibly powerful way to write.
When I was about 28yrs old I was given a Tetanus jab, after being bitten by a dog. I became teribly ill for the next few days. Suffice to say I've never really recovered, and was subsequently diagnosed with m.e./cfs. I'm now 47, and have spent many of the inbetween years housebound though much better in the last 3 years or so. In fact the novelty of being able to ride a bike round the garden still makes me smile widely!
I'm not sure I will ever know quite what happened to my health, but truth-speakers like yourself make me feel educated and empowered.
With many thanks,
High Pitched Screaming, Brain Bleed, Permanent Brain Damage After Vaccination. Parents Accused of SBS, Child Put in Foster Care
In 2006 my son was born (a normal healthy baby boy) but he remained in hospital for 7 days as he was delivered by c section due to complications in labor.
At over 9Ibs in weight he loved his food and was hardly a small baby.
On 6/11/2006 we took our son for his first vaccine at just over 2 months of age as it was put back as he had a cold when it should of been given, we was not given any information about the vaccine given to our son (which I think was the five in one jab) just informed he might have a temperature over the next 5-7 days and to give him calpol.
When we returned home over the next few days our son developed at temperature, lack of awareness, loss of apitite, and he was really unsettle and cried a lot more then normally.
On the 9/11/2006 our son awoke from his sleep and let out a high pitch scream/cry and was fixed on the light before falling back to sleep this worrie both me and my partner who phoned her mother for advise.
We let him sleep through and the next day he seemed fine although he still had a temperature and wasnt feeding properly.
On the 11/11/2006 our son didnt wake up for his second feed so while my partner was preparing his bottle i tried to wake him and he let out a high pitch scream when i picked him up from his cot. later that day my partner held our son when he bacame floppy she placed him in his baby chair and he then started fitting down the left side of his body and screaming.He was rushed to hospital and before any test or scans had been done doctors refered to our son has a Shaken Baby Syndrome.
Police and social services became involved and our child was placed under child protection act.
We was later informed by doctors that our son had suffered a subdural haemorrhage and retial bleeding but had no fractures or external injuries.
The case was taken to court with the evidence that doctors had said our sons injuries could of been the result of Shaken Baby Syndrome and the court placed our son up for adoption.
It is now 11/11/2009 and my son is still in foster care becuase social service cant find a suitable adoptive family as our son has brain damage but doctors still dont know what effect his injuries will have on him.
I want my sons case opened again with this in mind that there might be a link between his vaccination given just 5-6 days before he was rushed to hospital and his brain injury but the doctors and the social workers on this case wont admit they may of made a mistake.
My son cries my name but still they wont admit they made a mistake.
please anyone who has a child think twice before vaccinating your child.... its their life in your hands so do your research before submitting them to these money making vaccines made by the goverment.

Bullying Doctor With Needle in Hand Tries to Vaccinate Newborn Baby After Parents Said No
In the morning on the second day (today)
one of the female Dr.'s came in and checked baby L all over for vitals etc . . . and then took note that my wife is originally from the Philippines and that it is a high risk country for TB. I indicated we did not want any vaccinations but she said she just wanted to "look into it" and get back to us etc . . . So she comes back in the late afternoon with a loaded
needle and sais "yes we feel baby L should have the jab" and proceeded to give me the spiel about "only local" bruising side effects
etc . . . I said "we respectively decline the vaccine". She said "ok I cannot legally pressure you but I am still obliged to tell you the benefits"
I glared at her with steely eyes, getting ready for the useless pitch job - and then she took one look at me and my stare and instead of giving me the pitch she packed her loaded needle away and silently left the room. Can you believe she had loaded the needle already when in the morning I had told her we did not want it? A subtle guilt trip right?-"Well it is already here so why don't we just. . .---she came in like I was going to roll over, to just get it over with and accept it! No way!
Can you believe, hardly two days old and after being forcibly removed (necessary) from her mother's body, they want to inflict more
pain and inject poison into her senselessly! Unbelievable.
A New Dad's Experience of a UK Maternity Ward.
VAN UK would like to congratulate new dad (and mum!) on the birth of their healthy, 8lbs, 13ozs baby girl, who will be unvaccinated.
Thank You From A Midwife
Recently I have come accross your VA website. Can I just say how much it scares me and makes me feel sick. I am a health professional who is supposed to advocate immunisation. I am also a mother who had my firstborn immunised against childhood illnesses.
Your website scares me and I wish that I could disagree with it but I can not. I can apply what is going on with vaccinations when I look at what is going on in the maternity services.
I was bullied by fellow midwives for not accepting their plan of 'care' for me during my pregnancy and had to fight to get a home birth.
And that is all nothing in comparison to what I see going on at work. I have also just finished re-reading 'the Polotic's of Breastfeeding' and it never ceases to amaze me just how corrupt this world is. So, it is quite easy to see that vaccinations are a huge whopper.
Just the other day I received a copy of 'The Practicing Midwife'. It was reporting that the NMC is warning midwives not to discourage pregnant women against the H1N1 sf v. and is reminding us of our codes.
I feel sick right now having had my eldest child vaccinated. My new baby will not be getting vaccinated but I am dreading the response from my local surgery. All that I got from the HP's during my pregnancy was 'she's a midwife, she should know better'. But I do...
Thank you for your fantastic website, the world really needs people like you.
Profound Deafness After Measles Vaccine
I came across your website while researching vaccines. I hope you can help me! I was diagnosed as profoundly deaf at 4 years old, with permanent nerve damage in both ears. I have lived with this since. Its only in recent years, while researching canine vaccines, that I began to wonder if one of my childhood vaccines could have damaged me. Research points me towards the single measles vaccine which my mother has told me, I did have shortly before starting with the hearing problems, along with the other childhood vaccines that were being given at that time. Now, where do I go from here? Is this something worth persuing or has too much time gone by? How do I start trying to find out about this? Is looking at my medical records the first step, to check what vaccinations I received as a child and when I received them?
VAN UK'S Reply:
I am sorry that you lost your hearing. What country are you in? If it's UK, under the current rules, you cannot claim compensation more than six years after the damage and you cannot be over the age of 21. It is a totally ridiculous system designed to cheat most victims out of the compensation they deserve.
If you're in the States, I'm not sure of the rules there. You could still report it as a vaccine reaction, to the yellow card system if you're in the UK, or VAERS if you're in USA.
To find out what vaccines you were given, you can ask to see your medical record and are usually allowed photocopies of it. If the GP followed good practice then he should have written the lot number of the vaccines and you'll be able to find out the manufacturer from that. Certainly you'd be able to see when you developed deafness in relation to when you had your vaccines and you could check with the manufacturer directly to see what side-effects occured with that lot number.
The yellow card system is here:
You don't need a doctor to report it, you can do it yourself if you come to the conclusion that you feel vaccines contributed to or caused it.
This is VAERS:
Again, if you're in the States you can self-report to them.
It won't help you any in terms of compensation but it will bring it to the attention of the drug companies whose duty it is to prevent it from happening to others.
Reply re Deafness After Measles Vaccine
Thank you for your quick reply! I am in the UK so now I know there is no chance of compensation from the information you've given me. I will contact my GP though, about looking at my childhood records, it may give me peace of mind if nothing else. I do think though, the Law needs changing regarding the compensation claims. Its just not fair is it? People just didnt have the knowledge of vaccination side-effects 35 years ago. I do think though, my parents were fobbed off regarding my deafness. They said the tubes had been blocked due to me having had a heavy cold!!! It was only years later, while being tested for a private hearing aid that I found out it was actually nerve damage in both ears and nothing to do with blocked tubes!!
Thank you from a 15 Year Old After Nurse Tries to Push DT Vaccine
I just want to say that I like how your organisation makes information on vaccines available to the general public. We can't make an informed decision if we are only told one side of the story. I am only 15 and have been researching stuff like vaccines and food additives for the past few years.
I went to the doctors today and one of the first things they mentioned is the fact I have refused to have the teen booster jab. They said "It's only a tetanus", when in fact it also contains polio and diphtheria. Also, they said "It's not a drug, it's a protective vaccine." Vaccines are drugs, aren't they? I also told them about the aluminium, phenoxyethanol and formaldehyde that is in the vaccine. They just said that these were 'carriers', and were perfectly safe, as they were in 'tiny amounts'. Even so, these are toxic chemicals!
They said there was more risk with having my ears pierced and wearing earrings than having this vaccine, which according to the nurse I spoke to, was 'just a tetanus'.
It is scary how much we are pressured into taking vaccines, because with every injection comes cash for the drug companies. And for those that are injured, and there are more people injured than doctors admit, compensation is very difficult to obtain. This world can be really dodgy sometimes.
I was in a chemistry lesson, and we were using borax. There was a big 'harmful' symbol on the tub that the teacher was bringing round the room. But this same chemical is in the Gardasil vaccine!
I read another letter on your website, and a man developed chronic fatigue syndrome after having a tetanus vaccine. I used to know a woman who I think had chronic fatigue (I don't know for sure, I just think she has judging by her symptoms). I know she really doesn't deserve to be ill, and neither do any of these people with vaccine induced illness. I know someone else with autoimmune rheumatoid arthritis, and also someone with Crohn's Disease. If any of them are reading this, I really hope you recover.
Also, I did my research when I was offered the HPV vaccine for cervical cancer. Millions of girls have had reactions, yet we were told in assembly at school that there were no side effects whatsoever! Some girls in my year who did have it had side effects after the jab, one girl told me her hand went purple.
Thank you for providing the information on vaccines, I wish to help people with natural remedies as a career when I leave school, I just hope I can get through med school with no vaccinations. Also, you have my permission to post this on your website, I want everyone to know the truth behind vaccines and for the world to be a healthier and happier place.
I Breastfed My Children For 4 and 5 Years Because of VAN UK
Thanks for sharing X So much valuable information on the site. btw Just wanted to say a huge thank you to you for writing your book - Breastmilk - a natural immunisation, it gave me the courage to exclusively breastfeed my boys until they self weaned at ages 4 & 5 years. I passed the book around at our local home ed group and so many women wanted to borrow it that I haven't got it back yet, that was over two years ago!
VAN UK's Reply: Thank you, that's really nice. If you don't mind, I'll keep your comment. I'm so glad you carried on breast feeding :) My son is still breast feeding, admittedly briefly, at 3 years and 7 months.
Paralysis and Cancer after Smallpox Vaccine
My daughter was given her smallpox vaccination as an injection into the sole of her right heel in 1958. Her whole leg came up in huge pus filled blisters and she ran a very high temperature. After a horrendous week or two, she appeared to recover, but a few months later paralysis started in the leg and spread to the bladder and bowel. After about 11 months the problems were traced as a tumour on the spinal cord. One was removed and another one grew.
The damage continued. Radiotherapy after surgery, water from Lourdes and a prayer from many people saved her life, but the paralysis is permanent.
Some years ago I talked to a reflexologist who told me that the sole of the right heel connects to the small of the back, where the tumours occured. Only then did it become clear what had happened. In those days we did not know this, very few children had tumours.
Now the viruses for the vaccines are grown on cancerous monkey kidneys and child cancer becomes more frequent all the time. Hospices for children with cancer are springing up all the time.
As well as my own experience, I have known two girls who have developed a tumour in their thigh at the spot where the jab was given.
Has anyone else had a comparable experience? We need to get this out there. This cannot go on being inflicted on families.
If anyone has developed cancer after a vaccine, we would be interested in hearing from you. Vaccines are not tested for their carcinogenic potential.
Epilepsy, Dyslexia and Diabetes after DPT
I would like to know what other parents have experienced following vaccination of their children.
My eldest son, in the 1950's, ran a high temperature following the DPT. He started long bouts of unstoppable diarrhoea. His previously sunny disposition disappeared in a matter of weeks. He became very pale, thin and wildly hyperactive.
On starting school it became clear he was dyslexic and virtually unmanageable. A gluten free diet helped him somewhat. He had special schooling but went through phases of epilepsy, often at night, and a long period of severe illness with swollen glands. Later his dyslexia precluded university and despite all his efforts, his career has been limited. He has tried repeatedly to overcome much of the problem. He is now diabetic and suffers constant fatigue. His life has been nothing like what it might have been.
Has anyone else had a similar experience, dating from the 1950's, following DPT, or more recently?
Yellow Fever Symptoms after Husband's Yellow Fever Vaccine
I've been searching for information about the possibility of another family member getting sick with Yellow Fever like symtoms a week after vaccination. My husband is going out to Africa in a couple of weeks so had the vaccination, now, a week later I have the symptoms of the acute stage of the virus. We enquired at the time of vaccination about the risks as we have a 15 month old baby in the house, but were given the usual reassurance. I know it may be pure coincidence, but to feel this ill within the week, when no one else around me is sick seems a bit suspect.
I'd appreciate any information you may have or if you could point me in the right direction for websites or someone to speak to I would be most grateful.
Best wishes (going back to bed now!)
VAN UK's Reply:
Yellow fever vaccine is a live virus vaccine so there is the theoretical possibility of it shedding and affecting close contacts, although the only documented cases of that were through blood transfusion and breast feeding, but it doesn't mean it can't happen. They do say that people who are immuno-compromised shouldn't have live virus vaccines and if it were totally risk free they would not advise this.
Here are the studies that I managed to find on the subject:
Hope this helps and I hope you feel better soon.
Polio from the Vaccine
I dont know If you can help or point me in the right direction. Last week I had saw a Consultant regarding Post Polio syndrome. I told Him that I caught polio in 1979 as a result of a childs immunisation.
He asked if I received compensation and I told him that I had never claimed. He said it would be worth investigating so hence my enquiry?
I would appreciate any help or advice you may be able to offer.
VAN UK's Reply:
Terribly sorry you got polio from your vaccine.
Unfortunately the compensation system in the UK is a joke, designed that way on purpose to prevent most vaccine victims from ever gaining any compensation. You can only claim compensation if you do so before your 21st birthday or within 6 years of injury, and you have passed both of those deadlines, see here:
Also you have to prove you are 80% disabled, any less and you don't get anything and even those who are awarded money only get a maximum payout of £120,000, which in my view is insulting.
You could go to a vaccine litigation solicitor and try to win compensation but your chances are slim. Hodge, Jones and Allen do vaccine compensation cases:

Trainee Doctor Says No More Vaccines
First I would like to thank you for telling your story,and great information about vaccinations side effects.Actually I have one question which is really important for my babys health..
Im first time mum and I have vaccinated my baby every time, now my baby boy is 8 months. So is it possible to take the choice now not to give him vaccine anymore? Or it is just to late and I have to complete the process?
To tell you the truth, Im a second year medical student and I was really exited to be a doctor but now I feel like Im just wasting my time in stupid things and big lie called medicine!
Unfortunately, this is the truth about vaccines and other heath products like drugs and so on. I believe that if it really possible to treat diseases, so the treatment should be from inside not out side just like skin..You cant treat problems like acne by medication because skin is just a mirror for the internal organs so treat them first then youll get heathy skin.
From Trainee Doctor J.A
VAN UK'S Reply:
Yes, you can absolutely stop whenever you feel like it. He is your son so it's up to you if and when you vaccinate him. Which country are you in? If you're in the UK, you can just say no to future vaccines. If you are in the US, you can say no but you will have to apply for an exemption certificate when he reaches school age if you wish him to attend school. NVIC will be able to give you more advice on obtaining vaccine exemptions.
Dr. J.A then informed me she was from Poland so I replied:
I was trying to find out Polish laws on vaccination for you but am not having much luck. I did find a rather sickening document on flu vaccination giving ideas on increasing uptake (that included the suggestion to force parents) so by that I assumed the programme is currently voluntary:
If anyone has any accurate information on Polish vaccination law, VAN UK would be interested to hear it for the benefit of any Polish citizens who read this site.
Thank you from a Dad-to-Be
I just wanted to write a huge thank you for your clear and precise articles on the truth behind vaccinations.
My wife and I are expecting our first child and are pursuing as natural a birth path as possible and our early years of parenthood we clearly have many decisions to make regarding the health and wellbeing of our child - this we take very seriously, however we have developed a deep mistrust of the medical processes and proceduralised approaches to child birth and ongoing health care...
and we have no wish to continue to fund large pharmaceutical companies whose advice, the medical world seems to blindly follow... regardless of the facts and seemingly driven by money...
Anyway my waffling aside.. thank you - we read your recent article in Mothering magazine and did some further research and are saying no to vaccinations, albeit we are needing to get other more natural healing and support pathways in place, such as homeopathics, etc.
We are intending a peaceful water birth at home, any day now!!!
Well done for your work in revealing the truth - its much appreciated!

Pulling the Wool over our Eyes
For many moons now I've been passionate about our entire global system needing to undergo a massive revolutionary change.
I see the whole ruling elite [minority] as being like an umbrella over the top of countless other smaller umbrellas and insurance, for example, would come under one of those smaller umbrellas, and under other umbrellas would be for eg: phone companies, hospitals, border control, national security, vaccination programs etc. They're all like little microcosms of the larger macrocosm and ALL geared towards MASS manipulation and pulling the wool over everyone's eyes---all bullies become like that when no-one steps up to the mark and makes them accountible.
The belief patterns are identical [eg: in our Universities EVERYTHING is becoming 'evidence based' [which undermines people's "connection" to themselves and to their own intuition and they become robotic and fear-based.]
Within this outmoded system no-one is accountible for ANYTHING [it's ALWAYS someone else's problem]...they ALWAYS have an ulterior motive, a hidden agenda [ALWAYS] as to how they can for example rip off their very own Governments. The rackets that go on, with supplying arms for rigged wars, ripping natural resources and exploiting entire nations [to get what they want---never mind their trail of mass destruction]---ripping Aid programmes, ripping national health programmes, genetic manipulation, getting patents on the world's food supplies, manipulation using hedge funds, removing privacy [CCTV, fingerprinting, biometrics etc] oh I could go onnnnnnnnnn forever! But I won't :D)
So yes, I see that we all [on mass] have allowed this very tiny group of exceedingly corrupt multi-billionaires, to utterly take over our planet and in doing that, we've all simply allowed ourselves to become their puppets.
For change to occur we'd all need to stand solidly against them and fully bring them to account. I see us having allowed apathy and the distractions of (apparent) comfort, trivia and entertainment to hold us in powerlessness, in the hope that anything dark ‘out there’ will remedy itself in due course, without our input, energetically or even electorally.
Look at so many of our organisations -- if those at the top [running the family, organisation, country etc] are totally corrupt then the entire family, organisation, country is 'rotten' to it's core and has no 'integrity' or 'unity'----and when those at the top don't have other peoples' best interests at heart [ie: with the philosopy of assisting everyone to be ALL that they can be, in a good way] well then we have mass corruption and TOXIC relationships develop [between husband and wife, between business patners, between countries and even between people and the earth itself---just total "disconnection."].
I'm certainly seeing that our planet is about to undergo a hugggggggge change. No elite, of any kind, can be infallible, and this offers true hope for the future – if enough of us, collectively, can rise above our fears and SPEAK OUT, loudly and clearly, and not rest until we are 'heard' and until we get results.
We need to start valuing our planet, our partnerships, our marriages, our friendships, our communities, our selves and seeing what we can build up and restore and put back in---instead of tearing down, annihilating and taking, taking, taking [did I say "taking"?] "
So YES, get your article out [THE article that got banned] so everyone will want to read it and it'll backfire on them! Yes!! It will CRACK them!!!!!
From Miss K.
VAN UK'S Comment: You'll be glad to know I did publish the article that got banned for mentioning vaccination.
Eczema after Vaccinations in a Breast Fed Baby
This is my personal experience with helping my son overcome eczema with breastfeeding and diet adjustment.
It all started when my son was 3 months old. He was being exclusively breastfed at the time; one day I noticed a dry patch of skin on his right cheek which turned out to be eczema. The GP prescribed hydrocortisone cream which I used very reluctantly. I was devastated as I always thought breastfed babies don’t get eczema. It spread from his face to the rest of his body. My beautiful baby with skin as soft as silk had turned into a baby with dry, weeping and bleeding skin due to the scratching.
I felt betrayed, angry, sad and a little bit shocked that the Breastfeeding had somehow let me down. After all, what is the point if they still get eczema, I thought.
A long journey of discovery began as I was determined to help my precious baby overcome this. I became engrossed and obsessed with my son’s eczema and contacted the National Eczema Society. They gave me some information about diet adjustments and treatments but I felt I needed to know more. I just felt I couldn’t cope with my son scratching himself to the point that he was bleeding and spoil his lovely face. I really disliked using the steroid cream but did when his rash was really bad. During this difficult time my local LLL Leader was a huge support for me. I always felt instinctively that Breastmilk was best for him and the thought of giving up never crossed my mind. Esther, my LLL Leader, encouraged and supported me. The best suggestion came from her: to keep feeding Antonio for as long as possible. At this time I had no idea what extended breastfeeding means but as time went by I found myself feeding Antonio beyond his first birthday and then I stopped thinking about time and decided to let him wean himself. He weaned at age 6.
My LLL Leader helped me establish the root of Antonio’s eczema: he had had bad reactions to all his 3 DTP Polio jabs and my personal opinion is that this is what also triggered the eczema.
Armed with all this knowledge I felt in control again and stronger. I read in the Womanly Art of Breastfeeding about eczema in breastfed babies and that leaving out foods like dairy products from the mother’s diet should help improve the eczema. I did this (a lot of careful label reading is required to avoid all dairy ingredients) for about 3 years with no significant improvement. BUT it could well have been a lot worse if I had not breastfed him or if I had kept on eating dairy products. I probably avoided a hospital admission for him by breastfeeding him exclusively until he was 8 months old.
I now knew that extended breastfeeding would be the best thing for him, that it would strengthen his immune system and avoid the eczema from getting worse
Antonio’s eczema started to improve dramatically when he turned 2. I noticed that it had disappeared from his body but stayed on his hands, feet and face. It wasn’t until years later, that I learned that body extremities like hands, feet and face are often last to clear (this is a sign that it is on its “way out”).
My son was mainly treated with breastmilk and at age 7 only has flare ups if he eats any dairy products, which of course we try to avoid.
LLL with its extensive experience with Breastfeeding combined with Homeopathy have taught me so much about the wisdom of the human body. It has truly been a journey of discovery.

Real Health from a Mother's Perspective
I do not claim to be a professional in any type of health care, but I know that motherhood and my love for gardening have taught me so much, especially about health, lessons, that I would have probably never learned otherwise.
What does it mean to be truly healthy, to have REAL HEALTH?
I came up with this term some time ago, feeling inspired by my love for organic gardening and my deep respect for Mother Nature.
What is Real Health?
For me it was this passion for organic gardening that helped me to define it.
I like to compare the Immune System to the soil in an organic garden: if the soil is looked after well and receives all the nutrients and bacteria it needs to sustain healthy plant growth – then the plants that are grown in this soil will be stronger, healthier and far less susceptible to attack from pests and diseases (and even if they do get sick, they will recover much quicker and better in this kind of soil).
It is the same with our Immune System and our body – it is the soil, the terrain which nourishes all our organs and allows them to function at an optimum level. Of course, it can only do this if it gets the right kind of balance of nutrients from day one of our life and many other elements like clean air and good living conditions.
Mother Nature gives us Mothers a helping hand here: she has equipped us to feed our babies with breastmilk. Breastmilk, containing not only the perfect balance of nutrients for our babies’ growth, also contains many elements unique to human milk which help to develop and strengthen our babies’ Immune System and prepare it for protecting the baby from many pathogens.
If a baby is exclusively breastfed and its Immune System left undisturbed then most breastfed babies will grow into strong, healthy children and adults.
Only when this immature, underdeveloped immune system is interfered with with vaccines, wrong feeding and/or suppressive medicine, will its balance be tipped and long term problems may develop.
I believe that every baby is born with a strong inner force; something Homeopathy calls The Vital Force.
I can best describe this force in babies and children when observing them always getting up when falling, being full of energy and life when playing and an ability to always bounce back from physical and emotional damage.
If we suppress and weaken this Vital Force, with vaccines, wrong feeding and suppressive medication, Real Health will be compromised and more difficult to achieve. The body will be less able to cope with illness.
Scientists are still trying to understand fully how the Immune System works and develops.
Again, I like to use a comparison with an organic soil, which produces healthy plants. This kind of nutrients rich, healthy and balanced soil is the basis to human health –from it grows nutrient rich plants which nourish our bodies. So we are literally linked to “the terrain”, the earth: keep it strong, give it what it needs and it will look after the plants just like a strong “inner terrain” (our Immune System) which will do the same for us, provided we give it what it needs and not weaken its functions.
So, the next time you work in your garden, stop and think about the “black gold” that covers your hands. Stop and think how closely linked we humans are to it and how dependent our Health is on it.
Let us get back to nature and enjoy something that is becoming a rarity:
Real, true Health.
