VACCINES: IT'S YOUR CHILD, YOUR CHOICE

Parental_advisoryCompiled By Generation Rescue, June 2008

Background

* In the 1980s, children received 10 vaccines by the age of 5. Today, they receive 36.

* Vaccines have never been tested in combination, meaning that adverse events that may happen from receiving too many vaccines at once are unknown.

* CBS News recently reported the U.S. government has paid more than 1,300 brain injury claims in vaccine court since 1988.

* In March 2008, a federal court ruled that vaccines caused autism in an 8 year old child, the first of more than 5,000 pending cases.

Know Your Rights

* You can choose how your child receives vaccines --you do not have to follow the Center’s For Disease Control’s schedule. It is a recommended schedule, not a mandatory schedule.

* In every state except West Virginia and Mississippi, you can obtain a waiver for vaccinations based on philosophical reasons, religious reasons, or both. See a map here and learn more at nvic.org.

Use Caution and Safety in Approaching Vaccinations

* Consider delaying vaccines until your child is 18-24 months old.

* Do not vaccinate if your child is taking antibiotics.

* Consider no more than one vaccine per doctor’s visit – never let a doctor “catch-up” vaccines.

* If you plan to get the MMR vaccine, ask your doctor to give it in three separate vaccines for measles, mumps and rubella.

* Consider giving high doses of Vitamin C (3,000-5,000 mg per day) on the day before, of, and after vaccination.

* With the measles vaccine (MMR), consider high doses of Vitamin A (5,000 IU or more) on the day before, of, and after vaccination.

* If your child experiences any developmental delays, stop vaccinating until you learn more.

* If your child has an adverse reaction to a vaccine, stop vaccinating until you learn more.

* Always ask to see the vaccine insert, and never accept a vaccine that uses the preservative Thimerosal (mercury). Note: most flu shots today still contain Thimerosal.

Consider an Alternative Vaccination Schedule for Your Child

Go to GENERATION RESCUE  for details. Three potential schedules are included:

* Denmark’s current vaccine schedule.

* The vaccine schedule used for American children in the 1980s.

* A schedule designed by a surgeon from the University of Washington, Donald Miller, M.D.
