  • I had both my kids vaccinated, It was my decision, my choice. I believe that every Mother has that choice. We need to respect everyone decisions and just stop fighting over it.

  • Too bad that the immigration issues are all over the news. Once again the issue about vaccines is left unknown.

    Petitioners have only three years from the time a vaccine-induced injury occurs to file a claim. The Vaccine Injury Table was set up in a time when it was thought that all vaccine-induced injuries happened immediately. This concept of vaccine-induced injury does not reflect many of the disabilities petitioners allege today—autism, seizure disorders, learning disabilities, arthritis—which are conditions that may appear years after vaccination and that have gradual and indistinct onsets. Furthermore, many doctors are unfamiliar with the emerging scientific evidence linking certain disabilities to vaccines.22 While many lawmakers have proposed a longer statute of limitations, the three-year window remains—and excludes many families who think their children’s injuries were due to vaccines.
