Vaccine Damage is Far Greater Than Long-Held Views


By Laraine C. Abbey-Katzev, RN (emeritus), MS, CNS


How much death or life-long health damage will it take for the world to wake up to the dark side of vaccines?  The stories are legion; the independent science stands in opposition to safety claims; the industry science is misleading, manipulated, and outright fraudulent in some cases. Scientific peer-reviewed journal articles, highlighting all manner of concerns, are steadily accumulating.

While the autism/vaccine debate rages on, MIT researcher Dr. Stephanie Seneff tells us (based on current trajectory) by the year 2032—50% of all children, and most of them boys— will be autistic! How will they be cared for, and by whom—especially as they age and their parents pass away? How does a country survive if 50% of its children are severely disabled and in need of lifetime care? The astronomical cost of their desperately needed services will consume and destroy whatever is left of our economy.

Despite Big-Pharma’s wishful non-sense claim that the science is settled on vaccines and autism, independent observers, researchers, and health professionals are declaring in ever increasing numbers that vaccines are contributing to the exponential rise in autism, other chronic conditions—particularly auto-immune disorders.

Having tracked this issue over many years, it is beyond clear to me that we are trading PERCEIVED BENEFIT in vaccine-preventable infectious diseases, for damaged brains, dysfunctional immune systems and a growing list of vaccine induced chronic maladies that include childhood diabetes. J Pediatr Endocrinol Metab. 2003 Apr-May;16(4):495-508.;

Autism, currently said to affect 3.5 million people, represents only a portion of the neuro-developmentally damaged youth that make up one-sixth of the kids we see in our classrooms today. When we view ALL types of chronic disorders the number rises to approximately 50%, a statistic never experienced until recent times. As a retired nurse, born when such percentages were unthinkable, I am heartbroken at our national loss of health.

While we can’t lay all this at the ‘feet of vaccination’, there are multitudes of unvaccinated children who have NONE of the disorders so exponential in our time. Families with vaccine damaged children who stop vaccinating their later-born children, consistently report how healthy and bright they are—no ear infections, no allergies, no asthma, no weird behaviors, no ADHD, and no autism!

This reality has come to awareness since the producers of the movie VAXXED began interviewing the families all over the country that came forward after showings of the movie to share their stories of vaccine injuries. These families, numbering in the thousands, have made it clear that vaccines are a major contributor to the death, disability and developmental damage with which our nation is besieged. If these problems were hereditary in nature, we would not see a clear divide these parents are describing between healthy unvaccinated and unhealthy vaccinated children within a given family. One would expect the likelihood of health problems to increase in later-born children rather than stop occurring altogether, as has been repeatedly described by parents.

The stories and insights of these thousands of families and from various internet groups and sites, including their comment sections, are helping to connect the dots of vaccine injury for disorders previously thought unrelated or labeled “coincidental” by physicians.

There is even evidence that getting some naturally occurring childhood diseases strengthen the immune system, which is beneficial to later health, such as wild type measles and mumps which appear to be associated with a reduction of certain types of cancers.

You may challenge my saying “perceived benefit” referring to reduction of infectious diseases, but the facts in recorded research on deaths and disability from dreaded diseases had sharply, and steadily, declined over the decades, independent of vaccines. Diseases such as yellow fever, plague, cholera, scarlet fever, and TB have mostly disappeared despite the vaccines for these diseases being either non-existent or not used in the United States.

Deaths in the United States, from the so-called ‘vaccine–preventable’ infectious diseases, had all but disappeared before the targeted vaccines had even been introduced—and this is according to our own CDC graphs!  It was NOT vaccines but public health advances and initiatives in sanitation, refrigeration and nutrition; as well as reductions in unhealthful environmental factors like reductions in crowded and poor living conditions that drastically reduced death and permanent disability from infectious diseases. Before the relevant vaccines entered distribution, individuals simply got sick, recovered and went on to have long-term or lifetime immunity.

Our government health agencies, with revolving door staffing from the pharmaceutical and medical industries are engaged in massive PR (public relations) campaigns spewing alarming death and disability statistics, which conveniently fail to mention severe disability and deaths from those infectious diseases occur almost exclusively outside the US in countries or regions with poor sanitation and malnutrition.

Vaccine proponent, Bill Gates, founder of GAVI Alliance (Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization), could do real service to the world through a foundation by helping provide clean water, nutritional awareness, compost toilets and other community sanitation endeavors, rather than vaccines filled with health damaging substances, which are additive to the health damages of squalor. Many of these third-world vaccine programs have increased the incidence of the diseases they are supposed to prevent like the vaccine-induced polio outbreak in India.

Here’s an excellent article by Dr. Joe Mercola, DO, detailing some recently discovered disease effects from certain vaccines like Pandemrix resulting in a 400% increase in narcolepsy in Sweden with similar results in a Finnish study.

GSK’s Infanrix Hexavalent vaccine is associated with 69 [SIDS]deaths

The manufacturers had reported these sudden and unexpected deaths were not caused by the vaccine but were merely coincidental SIDS deaths. Dr Puliyel analyzed the data and found that 97% of deaths (65 deaths) following Infanrix hexa, occur in the first 10 days and only 3% (2 deaths) occur in the next 10 days. Had the deaths been coincidental SIDS deaths unrelated to vaccination, the numbers of deaths in the two 10-day periods should have been the same.

Since most SIDS deaths occur within 3 weeks of vaccination and the bulk of them within 3 days of vaccination it is clear that vaccines are strongly implicated in SIDS.

The manufacturers of this vaccine GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) disclosed in a confidential report to the Regulatory Authority that about 72 babies died within 20 days of receiving Infanrix hexa. They reported that the deaths of these children were due to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and Sudden Unexpected Death Syndrome (SUDS) unrelated [to] vaccination. However an Italian Court of Justice Nicola Di Leo ordered that it be made public and is now available on the internet (

Analysis of the data shows that at least 69 out of 72 deaths reported were likely to have been caused by the vaccine.

Infanrix hexa combines vaccines against 6 diseases [namely Diptheria, Tetanus and Acelluar Pertusis (whooping cough), Hepatitis B, inactivated Poliomyelitis and Haemophilus influenza type B] in a single vaccine. The DPT vaccine, Hepatitis B, Hib and injectable Polio Pentavalent vaccine deemed responsible for more than 237 deaths. Jacob Puliyel, MD November 2016–Under Right to Information we know that up to August 2016 there have been 237 deaths reported to the government here within 72 hours of vaccination with Pentavalent. We examined deaths in states which were giving DPT and Pentavalent vaccine concurrently. There were three deaths following the use of Pentavalent vaccine in Sri Lanka. The Government of Sri Lanka suspended the use of the vaccine. WHO experts investigated the deaths. They found there was a clear temporal association of the deaths.

The report maintained that although it was probably related to vaccine, they were reporting it as “unlikely” to be related to vaccination.

The full report was not published online, only the conclusion was made public.

The full report was presented to the Delhi High Court in a vaccine case. Once this devious methodology employed by the WHO experts was known, it was exposed by the British Medical Journal.

Powerful forces within the pharmaceutical and medical industry are colluding with each other and government agencies in the deliberate concealment of vaccine damage, in my and many others’ opinions.  I see it as racketeering on a grand scale, not unlike the tobacco science of yesteryear, the Hinckley Water/PG2&E lawsuit of Erin Brockovich fame, and the corporate and government concealment of the Love Canal health disaster. For those unaware and interested, read the story and get the book Love Canal: and the Birth of the Environmental Health Movement by Lois Marie Gibbs. Also, recall the Vioxx heart attacks affair in which Merck plotted to destroy those bringing that to light.

I was struck by Gibbs section title: How Many More Children Must We Lose Before a Decision Is Made? …followed by her comment, “It took me a long time to give up the idea that the state and the health department would do what is right and just.” (p.147).

I’m asking the same question regarding exposure of the real dangers of vaccines. As Gibbs notes, the powers-that-be in industry and government do not do the “right and just” thing.

Remember the commercials touting physician recommendations of this or that brand of cigarettes? One company actually claimed their cigarette would “soothe your throat.”

This horrific abuse of our children must stop, but it will not be industry or government that saves them. It will take an uprising by families and the good ethical physicians who care for them. It will require the courts, in response to lawsuits, to weigh the evidence and issue judgements. The uprising of parents, and those who serve their damaged children, will have to stop this vaccine public relations errant freight train aimed squarely at every living being.

The ability to bring lawsuits against pharmaceutical companies for vaccine injuries from their individual improperly tested products, promoted as safe and effective based on manipulated and fraudulent research was dealt a death blow with the passage of the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Compensation Program as an alternative remedy to judicial action for specified vaccine-related injuries. You might wonder why this act was passed.  There were simply too many lawsuits, so vaccine producers threatened to stop producing such vaccines. Too many lawsuits! Do you hear that?

Nothing in that act protects industry from lawsuits proving manipulated or fraudulent research and concealing knowledge of harms. Mandating of vaccines will be stopped in its tracks, when all the newest independent (non-pharma) science is effectively garnered demonstrating the falsity of the current ‘religion’ of vaccinology.

Why, in my opinion, is this clear-cut racketeering? It should be obvious to all but the most naïve, that there is an aggressive media marketing campaign backed by a well-orchestrated industry agenda that is misrepresenting both the benefits and the harms associated with vaccines.  Why would they do that?  Follow the money, as they say.

I’ve experienced first-hand what I feel is collusion some years back at an open-to-the-public Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) hearing at the FDA in Rockville, MD in which a false statement was issued of no abnormal rate of miscarriages among pregnant woman following flu vaccination, when in fact there were large numbers of such events reported through the governments Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS), as presented in testimony by Ms. Eileen Dannemann, director of the National Coalition of Organized Women, whose survey was included in this study:

Gary Goldman, PhD: 4250% increase in fetal deaths via VAERS after flu vaccines 2009-2010
Hum Exp Toxicol. 2013 May; 32(5): 464–475.

I made repeated efforts by email and then phone calls to their respective offices to clarify the discrepancy, first with its presenter Marie McCormick, MD, and later to another committee member, but all to no avail.

More recently, Ms. Dannemann captured evidence that sure feels like collusion and racketeering in this March 2017 email statement:

“103 bills this legislative session in 30 states…why would there be such a coordination nationally when states have their independent, non federal [SIC] jurisdiction on vaccines?  Because…each State Health Dept is a coordinated long arm of the CDC.  And the “health advisory committees” ​on which the general legislators depend​ on is stacked!  We need to acknowledge this fact that the State Health Depts are being coordinated by the CDC which due to the CDC whistleblower Dr. Thompson is being investigated for fraud concerning the link between vaccines and autism, t​hey can not [SIC] depend on information coming from their Health Advisory Committees.”

So, what’s wrong with vaccines—as Elizabeth Barrett Browning once wrote, “Let me count the ways.”

Aluminum, a brain neurotoxin, present in most vaccines as an adjuvant, produces an antigen response, and has been identified as hazardous to adults undergoing kidney dialysis and via accumulation in the brain of Alzheimer’s dementia. We are injecting ever-larger amounts of hazmat materials, including aluminum and mercury, into our kids!

Many unwanted vaccines must be disposed as hazardous material.

Behavioral abnormalities in female mice following administration of aluminum adjuvants and the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine Gardasil:

Gardasil vaccination is noted by many vaccine experts as damaging to health and based on fraudulent science.  Peruse the SaneVax “HPV Vaccine Information Clearinghouse” site to read stories and watch emotional videos in which doctors and vaccine injured families speak out.

The powers-that-be and the phony front groups they’ve created don’t want a Vaccine Safety Commission. Truth seekers would not oppose a Vaccine Safety Commission, so who is really opposing? Here’s your answer: Yale study links vaccines to neurological disorders in children” published by researchers at Pennsylvania State University and Yale Child Study Center correlated neuropsychiatric disorders in children to vaccines. The study was published in the journal Frontiers in Psychiatry (2017).

Listen to two physician experts, Sherri Tenpenny and ‘Toni’ Bark, share their insights about vaccines:

You may find hearing about this mom’s excellent vaccine research comforting as well as informative

Hexavalent vaccine kills a 3-month old female infant who died within 24 hours of vaccination in which respiratory failure resulted from a shock reaction to that vaccine, was deemed to be the cause of death. (Forensic Science, Aug. 6, 2008)

Hear Linda Hayes at Weston A. Price Foundation offer best explanations for why there is no basis to be pro-vaccine.

In 2010, a study found that the US had the highest infant mortality rate (6.1 out of 1,000 live births) of 28 wealthy industrialized nations. The US also has the highest number of vaccines given to infants.

Most SIDS deaths occur between 2 and 4 months, which coincides exactly with the peaks of infant vaccination schedules. US health agencies state categorically that SIDS is not caused by vaccines, despite this correlation. But numerous studies run counter to this assertion. Learn more:

From ‘Truth About Vaccines’ episode 1—

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., “…not only that the science they were citing me was bogus, but that they knew it was weak, and they were unwilling to defend it in front of informed criticism. And that shocked me because…I was used to environmental agencies becoming captured, but a public health agency that is charged with protection the health of our children, to lie about science and to manipulate science, which is what they were doing, just seemed criminal.  RFK, Jr. specifically cited communication with Paul Offit and Kathleen Stratton at CDC as who he was referring to regarding these conversations.

Some CDC insiders have told journalist Jennifer Margulis, PhD, co-author of The Vaccine Friendly Plan, OFF THE RECORD that they do not follow the CDC schedule for their own children because their research of the science shows them it is not safe.

The Mantra of no studies showing problems with vaccines is an “absolute lie” according to Neil Z. Miller who stated, “There are hundreds, if not thousands of such studies in peer-reviewed journals documenting safety and efficacy problems associated with vaccines.” He edited this in his 2016 book citing 400 of them: “Miller’s Review of Critical Vaccine Studies: 400 Important Scientific Papers Summarized for Parent and Researchers.”

Speaking of safety, read what Mahin Khatami, PhD, Molecular/Cellular Biologist, Immunologist, Retired from NCI/NIH has to say on the topic“Safety Concerns and Hidden Agenda Behind HPV Vaccines: Another Generation of Drug-Dependent Society?” Mahin Khatami, author, December 2016.

Then consider this—repeating a lie makes it seem true.

And finally…If you still believe the lie that vaccines are safe and effective explore this on the current hot media topic of measles:
