Vaccination DecisionsThis site has been set up to assist the public to make informed decisions about vaccination. Governments globally are recommending the use of multiple vaccines in infants to prevent infectious diseases yet the long-term health effects of the combined schedule of vaccines has never been tested for safety. Chronic illness in children has significantly increased as the number of vaccines on the national immunisation program (NIP) has increased. It is now more important than ever to ask what is in a vaccine and what evidence do we have that using multiple vaccines in children is good for population health. These questions have been answered in my PhD thesis published on the University of Wollongong website. It is titled “A critical analysis of the Australian government’s rationale for its vaccination policy‘. This thesis includes a chapter on the Industry Influence in Research and Policy, that shows the types of ‘scientific studies’ that are being used to claim vaccines are ‘safe and effective’ and the influence of industry in the design of vaccine clinical trials. The safety studies performed by researchers in pharmaceutically funded safety studies often do not use an inert placebo to determine the safety of new vaccines. The Australian government is using pharmaceutically funded ‘science’ to claim that ‘vaccines are safe and effective’ and this is now the basis for mandatory vaccination in social welfare policies (not public health policies) and the removal of conscientious objection to vaccines. There are many doctors who are speaking about the lack of safety and efficacy of many vaccines and they have formed the International Medical Council on Vaccination .
The science on this website is supported by doctors and all the science must be included in any public health policy (not selective science) to protect the health of the population. A policy that is not open for debate by the public is indoctrination and not a policy that is based on evidence-based medicine that has been properly scrutinised. A description of how the medical literature is being selected for vaccination policies in Australia is given in this presentation at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS), 15 October 2015. This was a vaccination forum organised to discuss the public’s concerns about the government’s new mandatory vaccination legislation. It was titled Questions and Answers: No Jab No Pay/Play Policy. This presentation explains how this policy is a danger to human health and how it breaches fundamental human rights. It also shows how government’s have reversed the precautionary principle to protect industry interests, and not the public interest, in government vaccination policies.
Information on this website is provided to assist parents to make an informed decision about using vaccines because the government is not using all the medical literature to make the claims that are being used to design government vaccination policy. A list of other websites that are also providing valid information for making informed decisions about vaccines are listed under ‘Choice in Vaccination‘.
The government makes decisions on behalf of the community and it is important that all the available science is used in decisions regarding preventative health. Vaccination is a medical procedure for healthy individuals, not sick individuals. A public health policy that uses a medical procedure to prevent disease must be demonstrated to result in more good than harm before it is implemented.This website is designed to help the public inform themselves of the science used in immunisation policies. As a major stakeholder in immunisation policy, the public has the right to be fully informed and to participate in the decision-making process. The government must also obtain the consent of the community before implementing policies that affect their wellbeing.
This website provides information that will enable the public to participate in discussions and decisions about government strategies to reduce infectious diseases. These diseases are an environmental health problem and as such there are many environmental, genetic and lifestyle factors which need to be considered in the reduction of risk from these diseases. The information provided here should not be taken as advice but used to assist in discussions with qualified health professionals. Disclaimer
Do you know what’s in a vaccine ?Our quality of life is dependent upon our health. In a world where we are increasingly exposed to toxins and where our experts are increasingly depending upon industry funding, it is important to know that the information you are receiving is balanced, non-biased and evidence-based.
The ingredients of vaccines are not listed on the Immunise Australia Program (IAP) website where they can be easily found. They are found in the Appendix 3 of the Australian Immunisation Handbook (10th Ed)
Thiomerosal (a 49% mercury compound) has been listed in some vaccines until 2013 (Appendix 4, Australian Immunisation Handbook, 9th Ed). This is significant because the government claimed that thimerosal had been removed from all childhood vaccines by 2000 yet it was still listed in the Hepatitis B vaccine given to infants at birth and the Fluad and Fluarix influenza vaccines until 2013. It was also listed in the Infanrix-hexa vaccine – the new 6 shots in one vaccine in 2010 (Austin et al 2010). Here are some of the other ingredients that are commonly found in vaccines.
This list includes antibiotics, preservatives and additives:
Borax (sodium borate – insecticide)
Monosodium glutamate (MSG)
Thimerosal (50% mercury compound)
Australian Government Immunisation Policy
Over the last two decades parents have become increasingly concerned about the science supporting government immunisation policies as chronic illness in Australian children increased. Over this time period the recommended schedule of vaccines for children expanded from 7 in the late 1980’s to 16 in 2014. This has led many parents and professionals to investigate the science of vaccines and to set up websites presenting information about the risks of this medical intervention to the public. Links to these websites can be accessed on the Pro-Choice In Vaccination page of this website.
The science on this website is supported by many doctors and all the science must be included in any public health policy (not selective science) to protect the health of the population. A policy that is not open for debate by the public is indoctrination and not a policy that is based on evidence-based medicine that has been properly scrutinised. Here is a video of Dr. Kenneth Stoller discussing the cover up of the link between vaccines and autism. Here is more scientific information on the vaccine/autism link
