CBN Report Asks: "Are Vaccinations Safe for Your Kids?"

"Barbara Loe Fisher of the National Vaccine Information Center says there are real problems, but many doctors are in denial. She said, "It can't be true -- because how, how, could they possibly really live with the idea that something that they try to do that was good - has turned out to be bad for a lot of people.......Vaccines - especially multiple vaccines injected the same day - can put the microglia into constant battle mode. In that mode, the brain turns on itself, causing what's known as "bystander damage." A leading neurology journal seemed to confirm this with autopsies of autistic brains. "They found all of them had over-activation of the brain's microglia, chronic brain inflammation, which is by this mechanism," [Dr. Russell]Blaylock said. Mercury, aluminum, and MSG are powerful activators of the microglia -- linking brain damage with vaccines. Fisher says the vaccine companies try to exclude that damage. She explained, "The manufacturers conduct clinical trials and whenever anything bad happens in that clinical trial -- nine times out of 10 if not 10 times out of 10 -- they write off the health problem that occurs or the death that occurs as a coincidence......."We have to individualize the policies to begin with," Fisher said. "But we have to do the scientific studies to really determine whether a policy of using 48 doses of 14 vaccines before age 6 is a wise policy." - Gailon Totheroh, CBN News, August 1, 2007

"My 3-and-a-half-year-old brother, Enoch, was born a healthy and normal baby. He developed as he should have, crawling faster than we could run, cruising down halls and around rooms and taking a few independent steps by his first birthday. He was always into mischief and fairly burst with energy. But at 15 months, Enoch was given his DPT (diphtheria, whole cell pertussis and tetanus) vaccine. He became lethargic and unresponsive to his family. No longer was he attempting to walk....Enoch continued to get worse, shrieking out a high-pitched scream instead of crying normally as he once had. He was limp as a newborn and my parents felt as if they were losing him....Enoch's pediatricians were busy concentrating on getting his eczema under control and wasted no concern at all over his lethargic behavior and failure to walk. "He's just lazy," they told my parents, "because he's got older siblings to carry him around." Mom strongly disagreed...... Enoch saw six other doctors at Johns Hopkins, including another child developmental specialist, a pediatric neurologist, two different pediatric opthalmologists and two pediatric genetics specialists....After running many tests and getting no answers, the neurologist marked down that Enoch had been damaged by his vaccinations. The specialist we had originally contacted agreed. My parents were told that Enoch's recovering his abilities was dependent on his willpower and God. Enoch is not alone in reacting to his immunizations. Many other children have suffered adverse side effects, including deafness, brain damage, autism, seizures, bronchial spasms and death, from various vaccines.

The Web site of the National Vaccine Information Center [], a nonprofit organization, recommends that parents ask themselves eight questions before allowing their children to be vaccinated: (1) Is my child sick right now? (2) Has my child had a bad reaction to a vaccination before? (3) Does my child have a personal or family history of vaccine reactions, convulsions or neurological disorders, severe allergies or immune system disorders? (4) Do I know if my child is at high risk of reacting? (5) Do I know how to identify a vaccine reaction? (6) Do I know how to report a vaccine reaction? (7) Do I know the vaccine manufacturer's name and lot number? (8) Do I know I have a choice? " - " - Elizabeth Johnston, Martinsburg Journal

Barbara Loe Fisher Commentary:

The National Vaccine Information Center has been working to prevent vaccine injuries and deaths through public education for the past 25 years. The best way for a parent to become educated about vaccination and how to prevent their child from being harmed by vaccines is to become an educated health care consumer.

Today, the Christian Broadcasting Network's "700 Club" broadcast an excellent overview of the dilemma that faces parents when they take their children to get the 48 doses of 14 vaccines the federal government recommends children under six receive - "Are Vaccinations Safe for Your Kids?" - and you can view the report and post your opinion at The report will be broadcast again at 11 p.m. EST on the CBN and ABC Family channel. This morning, after the report aired at 10 a.m. EST, "700 Club" host, Dr. Pat Robertston, and his co-host expressed their concern about the vaccine safety issue.

If you choose to vaccinate your child according to the government's recommended schedule, if you plan to selectively choose which vaccines your child will receive, or have decided not vaccinate, it is important to understand the risks and complications of diseases and vaccines. Knowledge is power. Go to and learn more about vaccines and your state vaccine laws.

Two vaccinations I'm considering do not have thimerosal but do contain aluminum phosphate. Is this ingredient bad?

I am a teacher, and your marketing technique for menactra should be destroyed and censored. The TV ad is scaring the children. If they cough or sneeze they fear they will die in a day. If you don't know how to word your ads, perhaps you should hire someone who does.

my husband brought my son for his yearly and brought him back saying "they gave him his shots, one of which was for the chicken pox." i had no idea he would be getting it and would have asked them to wait until he was atleast four for it. he was lethargic, glassy-eyed, had a 102-4 fever, and lost weight over the next few weeks. he cried almost constantly. looking back i think he should have been hospitalized but i was working at a camp that summer and kept waiting for "the next day" of possible improvement. when i returned that fall to his pediatrician, i told them how he reacted and they acted like everyone responds like that and stated i should have just given him some tylenol (i did, and gave advil throughout the whole time).
