    Dive into sources and further reading here:

    Vaccines and their side effects are a hard topic to cover – we know we keep saying this, but this case especially, there were a lot of things to consider. You can’t blame people for being worried, so we wanted to take their concerns seriously.

    Because it is impossible to cover everything there is to know about vaccines in a ten minute video our sources are extra extensive and explain a lot of aspects in more detail, with an extra focus on further reading.

    So if you want to dive in deeper or have more arguments at hand for your next heated discussion, here you go.

      I'm sorry, but we are the sickest species ON THE PLANET. Just think about that for ONE minute.
      Our gut microbiome is being sterilized by pesticides like round up, and we are told they are safe(yes, they kill the bacteria in your gut - shocker), but DON'T WORRY, they have something you can buy for that.

      We are developing autoimmune diseases left and right. A study was just released that shows how millennials health plummets at around age 27, and no one is concerned that it's something to do with out healthcare? "healthcare" - that's a misnomer at this point.

      The SAME people that push round-up as being safe(now proven to cause cancer in a court of law), "provide" us with cancer treatments and vaccines.

      The same people who sell us vaccines, treat our children of these chronic illnesses. NO ONE is brave enough(or intelligent enough) to raise an eyebrow to that?

      Oh, wait, they are, but then they are told they are just crazy conspiracy theorists who are probably literally hitler and voted for trump. And people fall for it because it makes them FEEL safe. Meanwhile over FIFTY PERCENT of our youth(YOUTH!) have chronic illnesses that the AMA says they will NEVER recover from. And it's not enough for these mega corps to make millions or billions, now they are pushing for trillions.

      That's not fishy to you guys?

      I swear, people have thrown common sense directly out of the nearest window for, "double blind published data" We will NEVER get it. There are too many variables involved and you know this, that's why you keep asking.

      Honestly it makes me sick and people who are working for them should be ashamed of themselves. They aren't, because they have money in the bank, but one day, people are going to have had enough and they will be found and prosecuted.

      How many more of our loved ones have to suffer and die before it gets to that point?

        My nanny (Grandma) grew up in the era where there was NO VACCINES. She contracted EVERYTHING. She survived the measles, chickenpox, & mumps. Other people, sadly, didn't. The only reasons people shouldn't get vaccinated is that 1. If you or your child are allergic. 2. If you have a severe medical condition (Cancer, HIV/AIDS, etc.). Or 3. If you are too old or too young to get vaccinated. If you are healthy, not allergic, and at the right age range, you SHOULD get vaccinated. The pros of vaccines will always outweigh the cons. As for my nanny, she's alive and well at the age of 82.

                      I really don't believe Kurzgesagt made a clickbait title to lure in antivaxxers (even though that is a good thing). I think they're just being as honest and upfront about vaccines as they can be, so no one can see them as "one-sided", or "manipulative". They are acknowledging that there are risks.

                            The appalling record of ‘Big Pharma’:
                            Pharmaceutical companies have a terrible record of corporate crimes.
                            "A recent study from US Public Citizen found that, since 1991, there have been
                            239 legal
                            settlements, totali
                            ng $30.2 billion
                            in federal and state penalties, levied against US
                            pharmaceutical companies.
                            There’s a real laundry list
                            of crimes, but defrauding the
                            government, hiding drug safety informat
                            ion, and hawking drug
                            s for purposes beyond
                            which they are approved
                            are the main ones. Drug companies have pledged to change, signed
                            ‘corporate integrity agreements’ and indicated that they want to move on, promising a better
                            future. We can be hopeful, but we also have to be
                            realistic. Paying huge fines for illegal activity
                            is one thing, but will they be
                            still playing the eminence game? W
                            ill they continue to fund their
                            own experts and do research that goes through a selective reporting of ‘the evidence’? Sadly,
                            that’s probably going to be the case so you must immunise yourself: keep asking questions and
                            questioning answers." (10)
                            Recently Forbes magazine concluded that the pharmaceutical industry is ‘
                            addicted to
                            Merck is being sued by its own scientists
                            over a raft of frauds
                            relating to its
                            MMR vaccine
                            . (20) The list of alleged frauds is fa
                            r-ranging including failing to disclose a
                            reduced efficacy, using ‘improper testing techni
                            ques’, manipulation of testing methodologies,
                            falsifying test data, with holding data, and forgery of compliance documents. This kind of
                            behavior has become entirely common in the pharmaceutical industry.
                            Issues with risk minimization:
                            Correct risk minimization approaches are often inverted, with consumers and
                            independent researchers expected to definitively prove harm, rather than the onus being on the
                            product provider to firmly establish safety. The ‘P
                            recautionary Principle’ – ‘if in doubt leave it
                            out’ – has been largely bypassed, and the terms of reference inverted.
                            Pharmaceutical companies have positioned themselves so that policy makers often feel
                            constricted in holding them to the same levels of risk minimization as other industries, due to the
                            perception that they may forego important research, or cease delivering other effective products
                            if their operations are subjected to
                            greater scrutiny and bureaucracy.
                            Negative effects of pharmaceutical products are often diffused in the wider community,
                            and not always easy to quantify due to inadequate reportage and monitoring. Unlike an airline
                            disaster which has a very immediate consequence, the negative effects of a particular
                            pharmaceutical product may be less discernable,
                            especially if the effects are more long term.
                            Most people would agree that if a disease usually has a very low mortality rate, any
                            vaccine intended to prevent it must be unequivo
                            cally safe and effective. Proper risk assessments
                            are made difficult by the lack of robust monitoring of adverse events; the suppression of
                            independent science, the with holding of clinical data, and myriad other issues mentioned in this
                            No scientific research has been conducted comparing vaccinated with unvaccinated
                            populations, in terms of overall,
                            long term health outcomes.
                            Call for reform and greater transparency:
                            The dealings of the pharmaceutical industry in Australia appear to be largely exempt
                            from Freedom of Information requests, and there is a lack of transparency surrounding possible
                            Conflict of Interest situations on advisory bodies. Dr Whitely has also called for mandatory
                            reporting of serious adverse events, and break ou
                            t boxes on products warning of possible serious
                            side effects. (4)
                            So far calls to bring the industry in line with
                            the expectations of other industries have
                            been largely ignored.
                            Issues with the applicatio
                            n of ‘informed consent’:
                            The principle of ‘informed consent’ requires that patients be informed of all risks and
                            benefits associated with any medical procedure, and that a decision be made free from coercion.
                            In an environment where pharmaceutical marketing, the media, and various ‘attack ‘ groups
                            hystericise the general population and vilify critics and independent researchers, the notion of
                            ‘informed consent’ has become problematic. Consumers clearly feel pressurized.
                            Linking the decision to vaccinate to the provision of childcare available to everyone else,
                            further complicates this. It can be argued that such
                            policy enters a grey area in terms of informed
                            Vaccination providers also seem reluctant to provide consumers with information on
                            possible adverse effects. Many maintain the narrative that vaccines are ‘safe and effective’ in all
                            instances, despite package inserts clearly outlining possible adverse effects. An audit of how
                            vaccination providers approach ‘informed consent’ is urgently needed.
                            Unresolved liability issues:
                            As the parents of Saba Button - who was permanently injured by a flu shot - found there
                            is a lack of clarity when it comes to liability.
                            (15) Australia is one of only three Western nations
                            that does not have a vaccine injury compensation scheme despite the World Health Organisation
                            arguing it is an ‘ethical necessity’. In the case of an injury there is no clear indication of who
                            takes responsibility.
                            If the parents of a vaccine injured child feel their decision to vaccinate was prompted by
                            government policy, does the government take responsibility if their child is injured as a result? It
                            would appear not. Pharmaceutical companies and vaccination providers also seem to avoid
                            liability. This question requires immediate clar
                            ification. Currently there is a policy void
                            surrounding issues of lia
                            bility and compensation.

                            Aside from pharmaceutical marketing there is a more complex and less easily understood

                            crude but effective, and at times of questionable legality. They can include:
                            Cyber bullying and threats.
                            Disinformation campaigns including misrepresenting research.
                            Making spurious complain
                            ts to academic institution
                            s and professional bodies.
                            Disseminating fictitious personal information designed to cause embarrassment or a loss
                            of credibility.
                            Using seemingly authoritative or popular
                            websites to launch attacks designed to
                            hystericise consumers, and ostracize critics. In some instances the wording can be considered
                            ‘hate speech’ and adds to an atmosphere of fear surrounding this issue.
                            One of the world’s most awarded journalists Sharyl Atkisson describes this as the ‘astro
                            turf’ movement. She has researched the tactics used by pharmaceutical concerns and their allies
                            to silence the very many researchers from eminent Universities who are critical of their products.
                            “.....if the propagandists are to be believed, each of the researchers is an incompetent crank,
                            quack, nut or fraud (and, of course, “anti-vaccin
                            e” for daring to dabble in research that........
                            leads to vaccine safety
                            issues). The scientists and their re
                            search are “controversial,” simply
                            because the propagandists declare them to be........“Weak,” “too small,” “haphazard,” “not
                            replicated,” “junk science,” “flawed,” “unrelated,” declare the propagandists, without exception.
                            Just as attackers spent years challenging any study that linked tobacco to lung cancer.
                            They know that
                            reporters who don’t do their homework
                            will conduct an Internet search, run
                            across the blogs with science-y sounding names, and
                            uncritically accept their word as if it’s
                            and prevailing thought.” (17)
                            Pharmaceutical marketing leverages off a kind of religious fervor that surrounds this
                            issue. Dr Jefferson has said that ‘
                            vaccines have become like a religion
                            ... something you don’t
                            question. If you do, you are seen as being an anti-vaccine extremist. The authorities do not want
                            to hear ‘side-effect’(18)

                              Correlative studies cannot be considered definitive, but in conjunction with other research
                              they often indicate areas that require further examination. There has so far not been an

                              A report in ‘Human and Experimental Toxicology’ stated:
                              "Our findings show
                              a positive correlation

                              A Spanish research team concluded that, “vaccines containing adjuvants may be
                              associated with an
                              increased risk of autoimmune/inflammatory adverse events
                              Regulation and monitoring:
                              In a submission to parliament Dr Martin Whitely, senior advocate for the Western
                              Australian Health Consumers Council stated:
                              “When licensing drugs for marketing Australia
                              ’s Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA)
                              relies on research funded and controlled by pharmaceutical companies. Too often pharmaceutical
                              companies ‘
                              cherry pick’ favorable evidence and hide or ‘spin’ unfavorable evidence
                              support their commercial interests.” (4)
                              Most vaccination proponents will argue that
                              serious adverse reactions are rare, but a big
                              problem is that we do not have accurate, agreed upon figures. During the height of the flu
                              vaccine adverse reactions in 2010 Peter Collignon, a professor of infectious diseases from the
                              Australian National University, was
                              interviewed by ABC news. He felt
                              the number of adverse
                              reactions was probably under estimated
                              , given that authorities don’t have a congruent and
                              approachable system to monitor peoples’ reactions. He believed that an effective surveillance
                              system should monitor a sample group of thousands for one or two weeks before a new vaccine
                              is rolled out for the entire population. "We need a better system than voluntary notification to the
                              TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration) that there's a problem," he said. "Because whenever
                              you do that you really underestimate how much of a problem there is. (15)
                              Dr. Whitely has argued that there needs to be mandatory reporting of adverse events. (4)
                              Without agreed upon figures for adverse events an accurate risk analysis cannot be undertaken,
                              and we are unable to state whether the current schedule of vaccinations is in fact safe, or creating
                              more negative health outcomes than
                              it is intended to prevent.
                              Tactics used by pharmaceutical
                              companies to silence dissent:
                              “Pharmaceutical companies are master manipulators.....”, Dr Whitely has stated. “They
                              pull the wool over the eyes of drug safety regulators everywhere”. (4) They use a range of tactics
                              which can include:
                              Controlling the medical evidence base via influencing clinical trial guidelines; ‘ghost
                              writing’ articles for journals; selectively releasin
                              g data, and selectively marketing trial results.
                              Utilizing ‘Key Opinion Leaders’ who often have undue influence upon policy – a
                              problem the independent Cochrane Collaboration refers to as ‘Eminence Based Medicine’.(10)
                              Maintaining a barrage of websites and blogs that purport to support ‘science’, but embed
                              their marketing objectives.
                              Embedding their marketing in established news and information websites.
                              Undertaking virulent campaigns to discredit researchers who question their products.
                              Terms such as ‘junk science’, ‘questionable’, ‘not
                              evidence based’, and many more are routinely
                              used in attempts to discredit researchers who threaten their profit margins.
                              Maintaining a small army of internet trolls to present the interests of pharmaceutical
                              companies in online discussion forums, the comments sections of articles, and any other area
                              where they can present their views.

                                If you bought a new car and there was only a one in twelve chance that it would work
                                properly, how would you feel? And what if there was a one in three chance that it was downright
                                dangerous? Faced by these sorts of statistics, most consumers would be furious. And yet
                                according to an article in the ‘Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics’, entitled ‘Institutional
                                Corruption of Pharmaceuticals and the Myth of Safe and Effective Drugs’ this may well be the
                                state of affairs with pharmaceutical products.. The
                                “.....proportion of new products with
                                clinical advantages seems to have moved from about 1 in 8 down to 1 in 12, while the
                                proportion with serious harms has gone up from 1 in 5 towards 1 in 3
                                ......" (9)
                                Dr Tom Jefferson of the independent Cochrane Collaboration has undertaken
                                comprehensive reviews of some vaccines. According to his findings the ‘flu vaccine for example
                                showed “
                                no effect on specific outcomes:
                                laboratory-proven influenza, pneumonia, or deaths
                                from pneumonia”. .In other words, the flu vaccine policy, ‘while eminently agreeable, is
                                unsupported by evidence that has been systematically collected, critically evaluated, and
                                properly synthesised.’ He is wary of the ‘trust us, we’re experts’ pose taken by many policy
                                makers. He states that ‘in my opinion,
                                that response is only fit for underlings, not intelligent,

                                It is also worth pondering the words of immunologist Dr Tetyana Obukhanych, author of
                                ‘Vaccine Illusion’
                                “I am very concerned that “immunologic memory” of adjuvant-containing vaccines is actually
                                the basis of sensitization rather
                                than the basis of immunity.
                                Furthermore, I am very concerned that “successful” prevention of childhood diseases by means
                                of short-term protective effects of live attenuated viral vaccines during childhood has led to the
                                loss of maternal ability to transfer immuno-protection to their young, thereby leaving infants
                                vulnerable to those diseases, should the exposure occur.
                                I am also very concerned that vaccination campaigns work by disrupting disease transmission,
                                which reduces the chances of exposure, rather than by establishing a population’s immunity. By
                                doing so,
                                vaccination campaigns wipe out populati

                                rather than help to maintain it.
                                If in prior decades there was naturally established herd
                                immunity to childhood diseases among the adult po

                                campaigns have ensured that it is long gone.
                                All of this is a direct outcome of the “desired” vaccination effects, the impact of which hasn’t
                                been carefully thought through in advance of introducing mass vaccination.
                                We thought that
                                vaccines work just like natural immunity. We

                                    overview of the case for policy change, and an urgent review of how pharmaceutical interests
                                    operate in this country.
                                    Contamination of the medical evidence base:
                                    In 2002 the editor of the Lancet, Dr Richard Horton, claimed that around 90% of clinical
                                    guidelines are being written by people with financial links to pharmaceutical companies. Since
                                    then it has been revealed that articles in
                                    medical journals are being ‘ghost written’ by
                                    pharmaceutical employees, and that data is being routinely with held.
                                    "Horton declared, “
                                    Much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue
                                    Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and
                                    flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of
                                    dubious importance,
                                    science has taken a turn towards darkness
                                    .” (1)
                                    The work of Dr Peter Doshi and the independent Cochrane Collaboration should give us
                                    pause for thought.
                                    “The current system....... is one in which the me
                                    ager details of clinical trials published in
                                    medical journals, often by authors with financial ties to the companies whose drugs they are
                                    writing about,
                                    is insufficient to the point of being misleading
                                    The industry has not been slow to respond.
                                    "The pharmaceutical industry has "mobilised" an army of patient groups to lobby against plans to
                                    force companies to publish secret documents on drugs trials.
                                    Drug companies publish only a
                                    fraction of their results
                                    and keep much of the information to
                                    themselves, but regulators want to ban the practice. If companies published all of their clinical
                                    trials data, independent scientists could re analyse their results and check companies' claims
                                    about the safety and efficacy of drugs." (3)
                                    The much vaunted medical evidence base is in a bad state of disrepair. As Dr Marcia
                                    Angell, a former editor for the New England Journal of Medicine states,
                                    It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published,
                                    to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no
                                    pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an

                                    Adverse events following vaccination:
                                    Vaccine manufacturers acknowledge a range of adverse reactions in their product
                                    disclosure information, and there are over forty acknowledged vaccine induced adverse events.
                                    (5) There is no doubt that vaccines can cause harm, and even death, in some instances. So
                                    regardless of what anyone may make of individual research papers the fact is that there is
                                    agreement that vaccination is never entirely safe. There can be risks involved. And efficacy rates
                                    There are a large amount of research papers discussing possible harm from vaccines
                                    and/or specific ingredients. The senior post doctoral researchers in vaccine safety at the

                                    aw and Dr Lucija Tomijanovic have presented
                                    many papers on the deleterious effects of vaccine adjuvants. They have investigated the

                                    iatric populations and concluded that children
                                    have an immune system that is a work in progress, and is far more susceptible to harmful side
                                    effects. Their

                                    childhood vaccination programs.’
                                    “Infants and young children should not be viewed as ‘‘small adults.’’ Their unique

                                    autoimmune conditions in humans
                                    can hardly be disputed, a
                                    lthough still debatable is how
                                    common such side effects are. However, the existing data (or lack thereof) raise questions on
                                    whether the current vaccines aimed at pediatric populations can be accepted as having adequate
                                    safety profiles. Because infants and children represent those who may be most at risk for
                                    complications following vaccination,
                                    a more rigorous evaluation of potential vaccine-related

                                    urgently needed.”
                                    Tomijanovic states, ‘
                                    Physicians should adopt a more rigorous evidence-based
                                    in order to provide a balanced and objective evaluation of vaccine risks and
                                    benefits to their patients’ (7)
                                    They also concluded that
                                    “ spite of the widespread agreement that vaccines
                                    largely safe and serious adverse complications are extremely rare, a close scrutiny of the
                                    scientific literature does not support this view.”(
                                    Professor Yehuda Shoenfeld spoke in Australia in 2013. He has investigated how
                                    aluminum based adjuvants can trigger auto immune dysfunction if a genetic predisposition
                                    exists. There is widespread acceptance of his finding that
                                    aluminium adjuvants can cause
                                    catastrophic auto im
                                    mune dysfunction
                                    (8). He has identified key genetic markers indicative of
                                    a predisposition towards adverse events, and yet little work seems to be being done identifying
                                    individuals who may be at risk.
                                    Australia is currently experiencing what
                                    politician Bill Shorten described as an
                                    ‘epidemic’ of broad spectrum neurological dysfun
                                    ctions, so if there is the slightest possibility
                                    that Professor Shaw, Shoenfeld et al are correct, we need to be looking at what other countries
                                    are doing in this regard. In 2014 France held
                                    an open enquiry into the issue of aluminium
                                    adjuvants. So far Australia has avoided looking
                                    at this issue, or conducting any transparent
                                    enquiry into the side effects of vaccination.

                                                I had to go to the ER due to a severe allergic reaction from getting immunized. My mom thinks it was probably the MMR one, in fact. Since then, she stopped immunizations, and interestingly, I have had fewer ear infections since then. Also, the time my dad decided to get a free flu shot at work, he got super sick with the flu for about two weeks afterward. I have a friend whose daughter died because she was given an accidental overdose on her immunizations. Immunizations are not perfect. Everyone's body is different and reacts differently. They work great for some, but not so great for others. People's genetics sometimes play a factor, even. The amount of required immunizations and drugs given to kids has increased over the years. Ironically, the number of kids with autism and other serious mental health issues and diseases have also increased over the years too. It does make one wonder...

                                                  So rather than sticking to the facts = you simply go off on even more unrelated tangents which again do not reflect reality.  Who's a thunk it. 

                                                  1 - the daughter could have conceivably died from a variety of things.  Vaccine overdose is not among them as it is a nonexistent condition.
                                                  2 - it is sadly apparently you not only do not understand the ingredients of vaccines = you apparently lack even a rudimentary understanding of science in general and basic chemistry in particular.
                                                  3 - formaldehyde is a naturally occurring substance in the human body.  Your body produces it all the time as it is used as a precursor in a variety of metabolic functions to include DNA formation. In the human body it is rapidly broken down into formic acid which is then excreted via the kidneys.  So what makes it dangerous - and by the way commercial formaldehyde such as is used for embalming fluid contains a host of other chemicals beside formaldehyde - is if that formic acid accumulates in the body to dangerous levels.  In a child with normal renal functioning however that does not happen and thus a child will at any given time have 50-70X the level of naturally occurring formaldehyde in their body than the residual microscopic amounts that may be found in some vaccines.
                                                  4 - aluminum such as is Alum which is used for adjuvant is not the same as the aluminum found in your toaster = nonsensical equivalency.  It is not a "heavy metal" either.  The aluminum *SALT* that is used as adjuvant is the same as can be found in a myriad of foodstuffs and is an ingredient in baking powder.  It is a water-soluble analog of the Aluminum atom = and anyone who understands chemistry knows that an analog is chemically different and thus it metabolizes differently based upon it's chemical composition.  
                                                  5 - Aluminum is ubiquitous in human food being naturally occurring as it is one of the most common elements on the planet.  Plants absorb it from the soil as they take in nutrients = while animals eat the plants and humans eat both.  So the average person ingests - and absorbs - vastly more aluminum via their cumulative intake than they could conceivably be exposed to in a lifetime of vaccination.
                                                  6 - lastly the idiocy about mixing DNA.  Ever catch the Flu perchance??  H1N1 - or swine Flu - is called that because the strain originated in pigs.  Accordingly the virus contains both human and porcine DNA = which means anyone who catches it now has that swine DNA replicating in their body.  Any time you consume a natural foodstuff or protein = you are ingesting "foreign" DNA.  Eat a hamburger = bovine DNA.  Eat some fish = fish DNA. 

                                                  So I will leave you with this cautionary tale.  Wherever you are getting this pseudo-scientific nonsense from = find a new source of information as what you are posting here is frankly silly.  Have a nice day.

                                                  I'm basing on personal experience. I reacted. My friend's daughter died. My dad got sick afterward. Aluminum, formaldehyde and animal and human biologic waste products are a few of the primary ingredients in many vaccines. Formaldehyde is a carcinogen. Something that causes death, by the way. Formaldehyde is also in cigarettes, so does this mean smoking is totally healthy too? Aluminum is a metal. Metals, (aluminum and tin) in particular when ingested, can cause blood poisoning and toxicity. My oldest brother has severe metal allergies. He cannot wear watches without breaking out in hives. Even if they have a leather band. He is 14 years older than me and lives a ways away, so I don't see him much and wasn't there when he was growing up, but my mom says he was always reacting to his immunizations. Hives, swelling, ear infections, rashes, feeling sick, nauseous, headaches, high fevers, etc. Nasty stuff. Lastly, all humans and animals have their own unique genetic DNA make-up. When you start mixing DNA of other people and animals back and forth it can cause serious mental, physical and neurological problems. Not to mention, all the artificial hormones and chemicals we pump into animals to make them grow how we want them to. Those hormones don't just leave the animals and can still be present in the vaccines.

                                                  1 - it is physically impossible to "overdose" on vaccines = nonsensical statement.
                                                  2 - while allergic reactions to vaccines are possible = they are exceedingly rare.  Meanwhile an allergic reaction is not the fault of the vaccine = it rather denotes some idiopathic problem with the individual resulting in a sensitivity.  Vaccine ingredients are chosen from commonly used commercial ingredients which have been in use for many years with a long track record of safety.  So despite our best efforts - while >90% of people tolerate vaccines - there will always be a small number who may be allergic to something for some reason.
                                                  3 - ear infections (otitis media) are caused by bacteria and have nothing to do with vaccination.  Vaccines do not protect you from the bacteria which commonly cause ear infections in children.
                                                  4 - the Flu vaccine (and vaccines in general) typically takes 1-2 weeks after you were vaccinated for your body to develop immunity.  Meanwhile some people develop side effects from vaccination which can mimic what the condition causes because the virus in the vaccine stimulates an immune response = and those symptoms when you get sick are actually your immune system fighting off an invading pathogen.  So a person who gets say the Flu vaccine - then claims they got the Flu a few days later = either was already exposed to the Flu at the time they were vaccinated or else are conflating the side effects from having the Flu - which they do not.  The vaccine does not give you the Flu while your immune system is still mobilizing it's defenses a few days post-vaccination.

                                                  So facts matter here.  What you have posted either does not reflect the science - or else you are conflating things to rationalize what you apparently want to believe.  Learn the actual science = and stick to it.  Have a nice day.

Autism shows it’s symptoms at the same time as the MMR vaccine. The flu shot is harmless most people have it EVERY YEAR. I personally don’t get the flu shot because I’m allergic to something in it, but I really hope you do, because your unvaccinated kids could fucking kill me.

                                                                        I killed him.
