The number of parents questioning the wisdom of the currently recommended schedule is up and corroboration is easy to find.1 An article in the journal Pediatrics in August 2016 reported that the number of pediatricians encountering parents who either question vaccine safety or refuse one or more vaccines or want to use an alternative vaccination schedule for their children increased from just under 75 percent in 2006 to 87 percent by 2013.2

A study from the Journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics3 reported that the primary reasons given for vaccine hesitancy or refusal of one or more recommended vaccinations include concern over pain associated with multiple injections (44 percent); too many vaccines given 
at one time (34 percent); the possibility of vaccines causing autism or other learning disabilities (26 percent, down from the 2006 survey); concern that there is an association between vaccines and chronic illnesses (13.5 percent); and lack of adequate safety studies (13.2 percent). Some parents also are questioning whether so many childhood vaccines are necessary (up from the 2006 survey), and whether experience with natural disease is better for children than repeated artificial manipulation of the immune system by vaccinations.

Overall, fewer parents are focused specifically on fears of autism compared with a few years ago. Instead, parents are expressing broader concerns such as the potential effects on immune system function, worries over how the injection of so many toxins may affect their child’s well-being long term, lack of adequate vaccine safety studies, and protection of parental rights to make informed medical decisions for their children.4

The general consensus that vaccine hesitancy is on the rise has spawned a host articles in the medical literature and in the media about how to “fix the problem.” Many doctors and and health care professionals have serious questions themselves and agree that vaccine decisions should be left to parents, but a far more common position holds that parents should not have the final say on vaccine decisions and that it is a societal obligation for doctors to change the mind of anyone who disagrees with current vaccine recommendations. A quick Google search of “vaccine hesitancy” turns up mountains of advice on how to persuade so-called “misinformed” or “confused” parents to change their minds and get with the program.

From tired old references to the “debunked” notion that vaccines cause autism to condescending suggestions for educating, incentivizing or coercing reluctant patients or parents to accept all recommended vaccines, it can be intimidating to even admit to having questions about vaccination. It may help to know what to expect and to recognize pressure strategies that may be used.

Powerful new film on the HPV vaccine being released by ANH-USA

Natural News) HPV vaccines like Cervarix and Gardasil have harmed young women and girls across the globe. And yet, many mainstream media sources, like NPR, have continued to perpetuate the myth that these vaccines are totally safe, effective and incapable of causing harm. However, more people and organizations are waking up to the reality that the HPV vaccine is capable of grievous damage

A new documentary being released by the Alliance For Natural Health – USA (ANH-USA) seeks to change the narrative on HPV vaccines, and highlight the hazardous effects that these inoculations are capable of creating. The documentary will feature a number of medical experts, accomplished doctors and professors in the field who are brave enough to speak out against what they know is wrong. Some of these top authorities include Dr. Sin Hang Lee, who is an expert pathologist who’s worked for Yale University and is currently the Director of Milford Molecular Diagnostics, and a former member of Big Pharma, Laurie Powell — who is now using her knowledge to fight back against the industry.

Visit HPVVaxFilm.com for the release of the film, or to view film trailers.

In addition to featuring these leading experts on vaccines and the pharma industry, the documentary will also include people who have had their lives shattered by the effects of the HPV vaccine. Some are young women who’ve been harmed by the inoculation, while others are family members who’ve been devastated by the vaccine’s toll. The HPV vaccine does not discriminate, and its victims span across the globe. One woman, Emily Tarsell, tells the heartbreaking story of how her daughter, Christina, passed away suddenly after receiving her third and final dose of the Gardasil vaccine. Other young women, like Taylor Wickline, have survived receiving the vaccine but are left to suffer with the symptoms of vaccine injury. Taylor and her mother, Theresa, have been dealing with the ramifications of the HPV vaccine for the last decade.

While most of the documentary focuses on the ill effects of the Gardasil vaccine, it is important to note that the Cervarix vaccine has not fared any better. In Japan, over 100 young women and girls have filed lawsuits against the manufacturers of the two HPV vaccines, Merck (Gardasil) and GlaxoSmithKline (Cervarix). One young woman, a 20-year-old named Erina Sonoda explained that she developed horrible menstrual pains after the second round of Cervarix. Upon getting her third and final shot, that pain began traveling across her entire body — making it difficult for her to perform everyday tasks, including walking. Despite her young age, Sonoda says she now needs a cane, or even a wheelchair on especially bad days, in order to get around. She said the pain was so bad, it felt as if “someone was squashing [her] internal organs.”

While some HPV proponents refuse to acknowledge the suffering of people like Erina Sonoda or Taylor Wickline, and many “vaccine believers” seem to think that their experiences are incidental — yet so many women have been harmed, it hardly seems to be a coincidence.

As ANH-USA reports, “A quick glance at the CDC’s website reveals significant side effects. The Center received about 22,000 reports of adverse events following Gardasil HPV vaccination from June 2006 to March 2013, with 8% of these reports considered “serious”—among them, 157 deaths and diagnoses of Guillain-Barre Syndrome, encephalitis, brain injury, and seizure (convulsion). This was more side effects reported than for any other vaccine.”

ANH-USA’s groundbreaking documentary will serve as a testament to the fact that the HPV vaccine is not the safe, cancer-preventing magic serum it’s been purported to be. [RELATED: Learn more about the dangers of vaccines at Vaccines.news]

Help Request from Parents Seeking Vaccination Exemptions in Sarasota County — or Florida Generally?

Dear Reader,

We continue to receive inquiries from local parents asking us if they should expect to encounter hurdles or difficulties in obtaining, for their school-age children, religious or medical exemptions from vaccination requirements in Sarasota County. [1] 

For example, a local mother we’ll refer to as “Sarah” (not her real name) wrote the following:

I am planning on filing the ‘DH 681’ religious exemption for my daughter… I’d like to obtain the religious exemption for her, but I don’t want to go in blind, have them start asking me all these questions, then blindside me and then they just reject it.

I can go to the Department of Health, I’m assuming up here on Ringling Boulevard [in downtown Sarasota] and get it done there? [2] 

What is the process? What should I expect when I walk in the door?

What kind of questions are they allowed to ask me? Can they ask me if she was vaccinated before? If they do, do I say yes, or do I say no?

Are they allowed to ask me what religion I am? Or why I’m just now deciding to do this when she was vaccinated before? Do I tell them that I switched religions?

I just need to go in armed with the knowledge of what to expect and how it should go.

… In summary, has anyone in our community obtained the religious exemption? If so did it work? Were you denied?Was it easy?

Any help is much appreciated please and thank you.”

Important note: Sarasota for Vaccination Choice (SVC) has not received any specific information to suggest that local officials are making it difficult for — or “pushing back” against — parents who make the requests for exemption from vaccination.

That said, however, we would greatly appreciate any feedback from Sarasota parents, regarding your personal experiences —positive or negative — in dealing with the exemption process.

Also, any suggestions you have found helpful in navigating this process would be most appreciated.

To share your story or suggestions, please email svcsrqorg@gmail.com or post to our Facebook page, HERE.

Note: If you send your feedback via email, we promise to maintain your anonymity; needless to say, if you post via Facebook, we may have no control over whether your name appears or not.

Thank you,
Sarasota for Vaccination Choice (SVC)

NOTES:

[1] According to Florida Statutes, two types of exemptions from vaccinations are available; religious and medical.

National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) has summarized the Florida situation as follows:

Quick Facts and Resources for Florida Residents
“A request for a religious exemption from immunization requirements must be presented to the facility/school on the Department of Health’s Religious Exemption From Immunization form (DH 681 Form). The DH 681 Form is issued only by county health departments and only for a child who is not immunized because of his/her family’s religious tenets or practices. If a parent requests such an exemption, the county health department staff must use the current DH 681 Form, which has been signed by the parent affirming the written statement on the form that a religious conflict exists. This form must be issued upon request. No other information should be solicited from the parent or guardian.”  Rule 64D-3.046, Florida Administrative Code. Medical exemptions are also allowed.

Obstetricians: The New Frontier for HPV Vaccine Marketing

Original here: http://thinkingmomsrevolution.com/obstetricians-new-frontier-hpv-vaccine-marketing/

There are few things more egregious in the vaccine risk-aware community right now than the HPV vaccine and its tsunami of marketing efforts, targeting one of the biggest fears the American people have: cancer.

HPV is a common sexually transmitted infection, which generally presents no symptoms and clears spontaneously in most people who have it. Only a small percentage go on to ever have problems for which the U.S. has robust screening and treatment programs available. Deaths from cervical cancer are relatively low, which is not to diminish the devastation caused to families affected by this horrific disease.

Despite the over-reaching promises that this vaccine would prevent cancer (Merck has never demonstrated this), with campaigns like “Be One Less,” the vaccine has failed to take a foothold in the mainstream pro-vaccine psyche with “unacceptably low” vaccination levels. There are many reasons, but for me the main one, and the one that Merck, the WHO, CDC and the FDA fails to acknowledge, is the many stories of injuries circulating around the globe. They are trying their best to counter the ever-growing grassroots alarm bells with frightening cancer prevalence statistics at every chance they get, but it’s not working. Vaccine mandates loom in many states, but so far, parents have kept them at bay in 47 of them.

Gardasil marketing campaign

Enter a newer stealth marketing strategy, employing the unequivocal endorsement of various medical professional bodies to push the vaccine on the public from every vantage point. The American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Society of Clinical Oncology, the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology and even the American Dental Association, to name a few, have all come out with press releases or updated mission statements touting the vaccine as their singular recommendation for good health practice for HPV-related cancer prevention. This recommendation has supplanted educating their patients about avoiding all risk factors, which used to be the norm, and some would say, most risk averse.

I don’t mean to sound like I suspect that there’s some conspiracy here and that Merck is somehow in bed with these reputable organizations in order to sell its drugs and vaccines; I’m saying it’s their business model. Merck pays scientists and doctors all over the world to speak on their behalf, to conduct studies, to analyze market data, and to appear in the media to promote and support the infallibility of their products. Merck also funnels money into medical research, universities, hospitals and even politicians’ coffers. And nowhere has this been more blatant than with Gardasil and Merck’s long-time investment in Women in Government. WIG provides its members with a plug-and-play legislative toolkitto assist in implementing state Gardasil mandates. There’s no man behind the curtain; it’s all out there, hidden in plain sight.

This business model seeks out the collaboration of institutions who have direct influence on those who can actually deliver products directly to customers—practicing doctors—and seamlessly increase the bottom line. After all, the only population Merck has a duty of care to is its shareholders.

The American Academy of Pediatrics is already firmly on board with recommending the HPV vaccine to every one of its patients over the age of nine. But there is another as-yet untapped sales force: the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG).

In 2012, ACOG partnered with “Merck For Mothers” to launch “Saving Mothers,” a noble cause focused on making labor and delivery safer for women in developing nations. (Incidentally, if you have $750 to spare, our old friend from the CDC, Julie Gerberding, is being honored by the NY Academy of Medicine for her work at Merck for Mothers on June 13th, another major medical academy alliance).
