Although some vaccines have proved to be very effective in eradicating some serious diseases such as polio, others have had little or no effect on the diseases they are supposed to be immunising against and many have led to serious side effects and in rare cases been fatal.


Pharmaceutical companies that produce the vaccines often fail to disclose any negative tests results and rarely test for any the long-term effects before getting their products licensed for sale.


The side effects of vaccines is often due to the added compounds used as carriers and preservatives etc. Aluminium used in vaccines has the potential to induce serious health disorders in humans such as the risk of autoimmunity, autism, long-term brain inflammation and associated neurological complications that may have profound and widespread adverse health consequences. Children from countries with the highest autism cases appear to have had a much higher exposure to aluminium from vaccines, particularly at two months of age.


Aluminium has long been identified as a neurotoxin metal, affecting memory, cognition and psychomotor control, altering neurotransmission and synaptic activity, damaging the blood–brain barrier, exerting pro-oxidant effects, activating microglia and brain inflammation, depressing the cerebral glucose metabolism and mitochondrial functions, interfering with transcriptional activity and promoting beta-amyloid and neuro-filament aggregation.


Aluminium has been being added to vaccines for approximately 90 years but has not yet, as of April 2016, been tested for toxicity dangers in humans.


Side effects of vaccines


It has been reported that some vaccines can cause:

  • Allergies

  • Asthma

  • Attention deficit disorder

  • Autism

  • Breathing problems

  • Chronic ear infections

  • Diabetes

  • Meningitis

  • Seizures and epilepsy

  • Skin rashes

Cases of Guillain-Barré syndrome, paralysis of the lower limbs, vaccine-induced multiple sclerosis and vaccine-induced encephalitis can be found, whatever the vaccine. Guillain-Barré syndrome is a rapid-onset muscle weakness caused by the immune system damaging the peripheral nervous system.

There is a vaccine given to prepubescent teenage girls to allegedly prevent cervical cancer caused though the human papilloma virus (HPV). Since the licensing of this vaccine in 2006, there have been about 213 VAERS  (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System) reports involving amenorrhea, ovarian failure and premature menopause, 88 percent of which have been associated with one particular brand known as Gardasil. Long term ovarian function was not assessed in either the original rat safety studies or in the human vaccine trial. Chronic fatigue is another symptom experienced by girls receiving this vaccine. For more information see vaers.hhs.gov

Vaccines against the influenza virus often immunise against the wrong viruses as they mutate more rapidly than science can keep up with and are therefore often pointless.

Multiple vaccines

Often children are given more than one vaccine at a time causing difficulties for the immune system to cope. These multiple vaccines are not given because it is more beneficial to take them together but to save costs in the vaccination process. The effects of multiple vaccines on a child's overall health in the long term has not been studied and side effects often goes unreported as it is impossible to place the blame on which vaccine caused the reaction.

A class of combination vaccines against three infectious diseases in humans: diphtheria, pertussis (whooping cough) and tetanus have been linked with brain damage and sudden infant death syndrome although the link has been strongly denied by the manufacturers of these vaccines.

Before vaccines were widely used in 1963, mothers were naturally immune to measles and passed on that immunity to their infants via the placenta and breast milk so that if the child contracted measles they would recover more quickly. But vaccinated mothers cannot pass along vaccine-induced immunity and, therefore, infants whose mothers were born after 1963 are more susceptible to measles than are infants of older mothers. For a healthy child with normal immune function, measles is not a deadly disease and around 30 percent of measles cases among the unvaccinated are missed because they are so mild.

Since vaccinations became widely used measles, mumps and pertussis (whooping cough) cases have occurred more often among the vaccinated which invalidates the claim that vaccinated individuals will not contract or transmit the said infectious diseases.

A study of the people that are not vaccinated and who do not go on to develop the diseases being immunised against as well as an efficient worldwide reporting system of vaccinated people that do contract and transmit these diseases should be done to prove all vaccines are necessary.

In the UK, before vaccines are introduced, they must be licensed by the Medical and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) which assesses their safety and efficacy. Once they have been introduced, their safety is constantly monitored so that any new side effects are quickly noticed and investigated/ See: mhra.gov.uk

Also in the UK, suspected side effects of vaccines and medicines can be reported by the public to the Yellow Card Scheme. This can be done by visiting yellowcard.gov.uk or by calling the Yellow Card hotline on 0808 100 3352 (available Monday to Friday – 10 am to 2 pm).
