Vaccinations are becoming more problematic than anyone probably ever would have thought, especially since they are touted as ‘preventive healthcare measures’ and studies indicate that flu vaccines are not effective, including the U.S. CDC admitting, “During years when the flu vaccine is not well matched to circulating viruses, it’s possible that no benefit from flu vaccination may be observed.” (Source)
The reasons for public concern are numerous, but two are the most vexing. They are:
- Adverse Reactions to vaccines, plus lack of compensation for hundreds of thousands of cases of adverse reactions reported to VAERS due to vaccines (See VAERS reports).
- Vaccine Mandates for daycare, elementary school thru college, and employment in the healthcare field.
Lack of information is to blame. Most parents probably do not know about the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) division of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Vaccine Injury Table that lists factual information regarding vaccine damages, e.g.,
B. Illness, Disability, Injury or Condition Covered
C. Time Period for First Symptom or manifestation of onset or of significant aggravation after vaccine administration
Seventeen (17) vaccine categories list various infant and childhood vaccines, plus other vaccines: HPV, pneumococcal, trivalent influenza, etc. The Vaccine Injury Table is essential information for every expectant mom and dad to have filed away—just in case—and especially if you believe in vaccinations.
On the HRSA website under the explanation of Encephalopathy, some seemingly questionable information appears, in this writer’s opinion, that ought to be deleted, since it is confusing, if not misleading, insofar as it represents reactions and/or symptoms a healthy child did not experience before vaccination but suffered afterward, specifically:
(C) The following clinical features in themselves do not demonstrate an acute encephalopathy or a significant change in either mental status or level of consciousness: Sleepiness, irritability (fussiness), high-pitched and unusual screaming, poor feeding, persistent inconsolable crying, bulging fontanelle, or symptoms of dementia.
There are several ‘wiggle room words’ to note: acute encephalopathy and significant change in either mental status or level of consciousness. Also, one has to consider fontanelles on a baby’s head. The illustration below shows their location.

For those soft spots (fontanelles) to bulge indicates some abnormal activity has occurred within the brain and skull, i.e., swelling, inflammation, bleeding? Something causes that type of ‘activity’, if not ‘mechanical’ like physical trauma, then something physiological like body chemistry going haywire. Vaccine package inserts invariably list encephalopathy under Contraindications. The dictionary definition of encephalopathy is:
Degeneration of brain function, caused by any of various acquired disorders, including metabolic disease, organ failure, inflammation, and chronic infection. 
A child acting up with high-pitched and unusual screaming – is that normal?
Persistent inconsolable crying! Is that normal? What are the feds trying to pull off on parents who know their children and how they acted prior to and after receiving a vaccination? Children don’t act that way unless something is physically wrong and was precipitated by an action causing a reaction. The common denominator action most parents claim is/was receiving vaccinations. Check out VAERS reports.
(D) Seizures in themselves are not sufficient to constitute a diagnosis of encephalopathy and in the absence of other evidence of an acute encephalopathy seizures shall not be viewed as the first symptom or manifestation of an acute encephalopathy.
Furthermore, we ought to take note of the language that appears in section (ii)(B):
an acute event shown to be unrelated to the vaccine such as a head trauma… 
which, apparently, are more ‘wiggle room words’ that can allow for a diagnosis that is known as Shaken Baby Syndrome that places blame on parents. Innocent parents legally can be prosecuted for abusing their child when there is brain swelling or encephalopathy occurring, even if there is no head trauma or physical abuse to the child—just the mere fact of brain swelling or encephalopathy or brain bleeding, which can result from vaccine chemical reactions.
Perhaps it needs to be emphasized that the routine, stock answer from vaccine apologists to any adverse event attributed to a vaccine is “coincidental” and that vaccines can’t cause harm. There is proof they are dead wrong! Why, then, is HRSA listing conditions in a Vaccine Injury Table if they aren’t aware of adverse events—even death? Legally, they can’t have it both ways! When will federal health agencies and the Vaccine Court learn that, and when will parents enforce their parental rights about that?
If the medics can diagnose and the law can prosecute parents with child abuse (as in Shaken Baby Syndrome or Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy) when children are hurt and damaged by vaccines, where are parents’ legal rights to counter false charges and hold those responsible for damaging their children by injecting neurotoxic materials into them?
It would seem that the Vaccine Court has totally misinterpreted the original intention of the law that the U.S. Congress passed that would provide relief for those damaged by vaccines rather than exonerating vaccine makers with “get out of jail free” cards for adverse events, and to which the VAERS reports attest by the hundreds of thousands.
Furthermore, the Vaccine Injury Table time periods for symptoms first appearing are too short and tight, and ought to be revised to reflect more realistic intervals rather than the Vaccine Court masters “having the best of both worlds” in the consideration of compensable claims for harmed vaccinees, in this writer’s opinion.
Furthermore, it is most important that parents understand the regulations about filing claims for vaccine damage. This is what appears on HRSA’s website:
You must file your claim within 3 years after the first symptom of the vaccine injury or within 2 years of a death and 4 years after the start of the first symptom of the vaccine injury that resulted in the death. More information about Filing Deadlines. 
Folks, there’s your proof that vaccines cause untold damage, even death! The feds admit it. Parents cannot be faulted for not wanting to play Russian roulette with their children’s health; have their children vaccinated; and risk having them damaged for life – and without receiving compensation. That should not amount to neglect on the parents’ part for protecting their children from probable harm. Any mandates making parents vaccinate children, who would experience anamnestic responses, basically are immoral and should be illegal, in this writer’s opinion. That’s why various legal exemptions rightfully were granted by states, especially for children who had previous adverse events to vaccines; have impaired immune systems; or religious/philosophical beliefs that do not support placing poisons, neurotoxins, and foreign DNA and unknown viruses into their infants and toddlers.
So now you can see how important it is that everyone knows the down-sides of what happens when vaccines cause damage.
But here’s the saddest part that parents, in particular, don’t know and aren’t told about vaccines – the risks – either by their physicians or the media. Part of the risks includes the information contained in the 24-page Report from the Department of Justice dated September 5, 2013  citing Statistics for the Reporting Period May 16, 2013 to August 15, 2013. Pages 16 thru 24 list Adjudicated Settlements, which I encourage readers to access and study. Below I summarize just a few.
Healthcare consumers aren’t told the down-sides of vaccines because if everyone really knew, vaccinations would be refused—become passé. For those informed parents and healthcare consumers who know what can happen, it’s becoming harder to keep the poison darts off their children. What happened to informed consent?
For parents who don’t know, or who are badgered into getting vaccinations, their children, more often than not, wind up experiencing adverse events, which are listed in “C” above. Adverse events occur because vaccines contain numerous neurotoxins and other elements that, if a parent would give them to their child to eat or drink, that parent would be prosecuted for poisoning the kid.
Because medicine is steeped in man-made toxic chemicals – pharmaceuticals, and vaccines are pharmaceuticals – everyone thinks it’s the right thing to do: pump toxins into a healthy person to prevent disease. Well, consider this: What’s happening now with national and states “push” to take back old or non-used prescription drugs? We’re told not to dispose of them by throwing them down the toilet, as they poison the water supply downstream. Don’t leave them in the medicine cabinet, as they will be used to harm others. So pharmaceuticals really are dangerous chemicals. Everyone has to recognize that, and that consumers do have the human right to choose what they want put into their bodies and their children’s bodies, regardless of Big Pharma’s bottom line incentives apparently being promoted as vaccine science.
