Are Vaccinations Good or Bad for Us?

The truth behind vaccinations safety is a very debated topic lately. As a mother or 3 children under the age of 5, this is certainly something I HAVE TO BE INFORMED OF! I cannot leave my children’s life to be determined by the decision of a total stranger.

As a new mom, I was faced with the fact of “Obligatory” vaccinations and when my first son was born, I would have not given it a second thought, I would have said, yeah of course! go ahead! Why was I going to question? I have been vaccinated in triple doses for everything!! (Of course, I had forgotten that my arm had almost gangrened twice after two of those combo vaccines). My husband, a Holistic Physician had already been lecturing me about the “safety issues” on vaccines and had tried to make me understand that it is not safe.

The day my son was born, the first thing in the morning for the new mommy to do wast the “authorization and waiver” to proceed with the Hepatitis B vaccination on a barely 6 lbs. baby. When they brought this authorization and waiver to me, there were no explanations, they did not show me the insert of the vaccination to know what it contained. They just told me, sign here so we can proceed; and I did sign it. Five minutes after there was a MAD MAN running through the aisles at the Hospital, screaming at the Nurse that had made me sign that form without truly explaining what it all entitled! He grabbed the authorization and torn it right in front of the staff. I was confused and did not know what to think.

Once I left the Hospital, I decided to learn as much as I could to be at peace with our decision to not vaccinating our children.

I was in shock!!!!!! What is it that they contain??? What is it that they really do??? Why do they get so sick after the vaccination?? Is it really safe? Am I gambling with my kid’s health and future?? OHHH NOOO!!!!! I will not do it until someone assures me that they are 100% safe and they will back it up with the life, malpractice insurance, life savings, and Medical License. So far, 5 years after, and many doctors after, NOT ONE PERSON has taken that responsibility! Not one has told me, DON’T worry it WON’T DO ANY HARM! WHY? I may ask!! BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT SURE!!!!!

This is such an immense topic, that we could continue talking and writing for a whole year without stopping. But today, I just want to RAISE AWARENESS!!!! If you have a child and do not know what to do! Please get informed before you proceed. Don’t leave it up to chance! There are proven cases that show how many of our kids are allergic to one or all of the components in these vaccines. That many if not all of the components are toxins that our bodies cannot resist!! That we need to Green our Vaccines and put our Children’s life in a safer place. We will continue to bring summarized information to make it all easier to digest.

Please leave a comment to this post. If we don’t voice what we have the experience, how are we going to able to change our future or help someone else!

Twitt this, share it with your friends and family. Let’s continue to learn, teach, and share experiences for a better and safer tomorrow.

    As you’ve stated, this is a very controversial, hot topic today. I’m not a big advocate of vaccinations, but I’m not entirely against them. Some of them are beneficial. However, the important thing for any parent to remember is DO YOUR HOMEWORK. The Internet makes it easier these days to get a wealth of information, but the quality of informaiton is constantly under debate.

    Here’s a suggested web site that I trust that has vaccination updates/news:  GREAT resource to find out what’s really going on in the medical world as a whole, not just Dr. Mercola’s vaccine updates page.

    What I’ve recently realized regarding people we trust our lives and health to – the government, doctors, hospitals, pharmaceutical & coporate companies – they are run by PEOPLE. People make mistakes. People have their own opinions. People see things through their own eyes and have their own motives. We can’t really trust them blindly. We must do our research and be sure of what we’re allowing in our lives – all around…not just in vaccines.

    To your wellness!!

    Are there things in the vaccines that are potentially harmful? Yes. But let us remember that the dose makes the poison. Vaccines have become more safe over the last 10 years with the removal of thimersol as a preservative. It is important to look at the science when making a decision like this. Everytime I have vaccinated my children and myself I have access to possible side effects, an explanation of those effects, and a list of possible allergic reactions. Do the research. You should, but don’t let Jenny McCarthy do it for you. There have been no scientific studies that have proven the link between vaccinations and autism.

    In all honesty, if vaccinations were just deadened viruses and saline, they wouldn’t be so bad. However, they put all sorts of crap in there that is in a word, dangerous. Said can be said with pretty much every other prescription drug on the market. 

    Synthetic compounds = poison. Period. End of story.

    Yes parents should be informed, however it seems plain from the links provided that you’re not really looking into the other (the scientific) side of the argument.  So let me in turn suggest:
    1. Paul Offit’s Vaccines: What You Should Know
    2. Stephen Barrett’s Immunization Misconception #9
    3. And my own Vaccines, Autism and Why You Shouldn’t Listen to Celebrities

    1 book, 1 article and 1 blog (respectively) that show some of the erroneous claims made by antivaccination proponents.
