Why Do We Still Vaccinate? – 25 Questions From A Former Vaccine Advocate

I used to be pro vaccine. I know the feeling of thinking others were just plain crazy and wrong for not vaccinating their children and themselves. ‘Irresponsible!’ I said when pointing my finger. I’d use the same old arguments about polio and small pox and how vaccines saved us from all those horrible diseases and just swallowing and regurgitating the propaganda I was brought up with. It was only recently, in 2009 that I started questioning my long held beliefs and began digging in to the history, efficacy and safety of vaccines. I was appalled at what I found and the recklessness of those government health agencies entrusted with our health and our children’s safety, and angry with myself that I had put my family’s health at risk by blind faith in others when I was ultimately responsible for the medical decisions of my family.


When I began to put this article together I specifically chose not to include research from or links to websites that are considered untrustworthy by most pro-vaxxers, sites such as Natural News, Mercola, etc. even though I personally trust those sites and much more than I would WebMd and for good reason [a]. Instead I chose to employ basic logic and also incorporate independent and .gov scientific studies-mostly peer review, journals, news from mainstream sources (that pro-vaxxers love and totally trust) and articles that link to other .gov scientific studies, as well as government statistical resources. So, I started writing down questions and then looking for answers. I’ll admit, some of these questions have already been asked by others, but I just expanded upon it to form a helpful list.

I hope the following information helps you in your lifelong journey in search of health, vitality and truth in your own lives and your children’s lives.

1. Why are newborn babies vaccinated on their first day of life against a disease that is primarily transmitted sexually and by needles in drug users?
(Pregnant women are already tested for STD’s prior to birth so there’s no reason to give it to an infant). Interesting to note, of the few vaccines that still are given to infants and STILL has thimerasol in it is Hep B and DipTet (and Flu shot recommended to pregnant women). So, the claim that it has been removed from all vaccines is a lie and misdirection. If they give it to all newborns then ALL the newborns are getting that thimerasol (mercury derivative). “It was removed from many child vaccines in 2002 but remains in some vaccines (e.g., hepatitis B virus and)” Page 21.

2. Why are babies given vaccines to produce antibodies when they do not produce antibodies until after the age of 3 to 6 months?
They get the required antibodies from breastfeeding.

3. Why does the government tell parents to delay breast feeding and get more vaccines when breast feeding babies produce higher levels of antibodies?

4. Why aren’t vaccine manufacturers held responsible when their product injures your child? Why would these companies need to be protected from the effects of such wonderful products?
(Look into Vaccine Injury Compensation Program .gov and VAERS)
The Supreme Court ruling exempting the vaccine manufacturers from all liability is done under the explicit understanding that they fall under the category “unavoidably unsafe products.”

5. Why have no double blind, placebo, randomized controlled trials been done on any vaccines?
This is standard with any other drug.

6. Why are we following the US vaccination schedule? We are the most vaccinated population on the planet with the highest rates of infant deaths/SIDS in the western world?

7. Why are disease outbreaks occurring in populations with 90%+ vaccination rates? What about that ‘Herd Immunity’ guys?

8. Why are children vaccinated against these diseases still catching and spreading them?

9. Why are we frightened of non-fatal illnesses that train a child’s immune system how to behave?

10. Why are vaccine manufacturers allowed to reduce antigens and insert cheap and toxic additives that aggravate the injection site?

11. Why do we need multi-dose vaccines if the number ONE priority of vaccine manufacturers is your child’s safety?

12. Why will no physician sign a written guarantee for a child’s safety prior to vaccinating them with products they insist you take and that they say are completely safe?

13. Why is there no outrage about the 3.1 billion dollars paid out in vaccine injury/death claims and yet they claim there is no correlation and they are perfectly safe?

14. Why don’t people recognize from history that the most widespread and lethal diseases in the last 200 years were reduced due to cleaner drinking water, improved sanitation, nutrition, less overcrowded areas and better living conditions?
Vaccines were introduced at points in time where every single disease was already declining, most almost completely gone. To give vaccines credit for global reductions in disease is like giving a band-aid credit for healing a wound that was already closing. Dr. Hans Rosling shows exactly how the health condition of nearly all countries of the world have improved with wealth, even 200 years ago, at the times where there no vaccines.

By the late 1950s, even before the introduction of measles vaccine, measles-related deaths and case fatality rates in the United States had decreased markedly, presumably as a result of improvement in health care and nutrition (Oxford Journal of Infectious Diseases).

15. Why do people keep parroting what they hear about ‘Herd Immunity?’
Herd immunity is a hilarious concept that assumes that 1) Vaccinated people are immune to the diseases for which they’ve been vaccinated, 2) Can not carry the diseases for which they are vaccinated/immune, 3) Because most of the people are vaccinated, other people around them can’t catch the disease. My favourite analogy for herd immunity is that if 95% of people in a building are wearing hard hats when the ceiling falls in, the 5% are protected. (credit Dr. Robert Murdoch)

16. Why are almost all pro-vaxxer adults we talk to not up to date on their adult vaccinations/boosters?

17. Why do pro-vaxxers ignore .gov scientific studies?

18. Why didn’t our government health agencies ever safety test thimerasol (a mercury derivative and adjuvant) since Lilly developed it in the 1920’s?
They used it in vaccines from 1930 to 2004! It still is in some vaccines such as the flu vaccine and others. Here is a 2 minute clip, from Congressional Hearings. The EPA themselves acknowledge the toxic effects of mercury:
