How are vaccine schedules were approved in the US? By the ACIP, most people have never heard of it, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices. 15 experts int he field are chosen to make Federal recommendations on the vaccines. They are the committee of individuals that increased the vaccine schedule from 10 vaccines in the mid-1980s to the bursting at the seams 37 vaccines scheduled of today. Anti-vaccine individuals (as they are called by internal documents) have the opportunity to speak for 3 (sometimes 4) minutes on their concerns about the vaccines. Below is a video recording of those brief comments as recorded by the CDC. These are concerned parents and grandparents with a background in research, retired medical practitioners and parents who recovered their children from vaccine harm and those that buried their child from a fatal injection.
Here are the concerns, that remain unanswered and that alone should give you a moment of pause.
The reality is that vaccines aren't approved for health and safety but for profit potential.
The ACIP - A Remarkably Powerful Committee of Appointees
JB Handley describes the ACIP this way:
People often ask me how the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) went from recommending 10 vaccines for children in the mid-1980s to the bursting-at-the-seams 36 vaccine schedule of today. My answer, which always surprises people, is a four-letter acronym: ACIP.
ACIP? Most people have never heard of it, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices. Locked away inside a single page on the CDC website, the ACIP is described as:
"15 experts in fields associated with immunization who have been selected by the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to provide advice and guidance to the Secretary, the Assistant Secretary for Health, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on the control of vaccine-preventable diseases. The Committee develops written recommendations for the routine administration of vaccines to children and adults in the civilian population; recommendations include age for vaccine administration number of doses and dosing interval, and precautions and contraindications. The ACIP is the only entity in the federal government that makes such recommendations. [emphasis added]."
The ACIP is a remarkably powerful committee of appointees.
Let's say you're Merck, a giant pharmaceutical company with vaccines as a primary business line. And, let's say you have invested several hundred million dollars in developing a vaccine. Just for fun, let's imagine the vaccine you have developed is for Rotavirus. Let's say you would like to sell your vaccine to as many people as possible.
Well, if you're Merck, and if you want to sell your new Rotavirus to as many people as possible, you can pass through one door and one door only: the ACIP. If the ACIP approves your vaccine, you can write your ticket. If the ACIP denies your vaccine? Zero.
As Congress' report notes:
"The recommendation [by the ACIP] for routine use of a vaccine is tantamount to a Federal mandate for vaccine use."
It's almost hard to comprehend the amount of pressure pharma would be under to "manage" the ACIP and give their vaccines the best possible chance for approval – there are literally billions of dollars at stake for a single vaccine.
Why do they use the term Anti-Vaccine Activist?
Anti-vaccine activists. Why not call us a group of concerned parents/Citizens? The term anti-Vaccine is used in a derogatory way to dehumanize and discredit us as individuals.
Jaclyn Gallion, Washington Informed Consent / Testified at ACIP mark 1:08.48
It's degrading and derogatory. In the manner it’s being used here the label is meant to marginalize, discredit families, parents
...oh they’re a bunch of crazy anti-vaccine activists” no different than calling us conspiracy theorists. They’re a bunch of prejudice Bigots. It's unacceptable for them to treat concerned citizens this way.
Since 2010 they have been attempting to 'regulate the narrative.' with instructions to public health officials and doctors to minimize the concerns and repeat the mantra that vaccines are safe and effective. Comments on Jaclyn's facebook post by Ravi Kulasekere gone on to say:
The term anti-vaccine is bandied about quite freely by MSM (both media and medicine) and government officials as a derogatory term to instill in your minds that we should not be taken seriously. On the contrary we should be taken very seriously as I have shown you time and time again we have nothing to gain but everything to lose with our advocacy for the truth and transparency about the insane vaccine agenda. What we report on social media is the truth and what EXACTLY is being said by these people. Nothing doctored and nothing out of context, after all most things are live videos and you hear what they say anyway.
Pay close attention to what they are saying because we have now mobilized and armed with science and logical reasoning have started to show up to testify at Statehouse hearings and public comment sessions on vaccines at state and federal level. Obviously they are nervous because they have nothing to say that is useful and can refute the concerns we have. So the plan and advice given to everyone in the pro-vaccine side is to keep repeating the same useless nonsense on their part and not to engage us or provide us with the information that can hep us understand and perhaps put our minds at ease.
Does that sound like transparency to you?
To me it looks like they have been caught with their pants down by a ever growing group of informed citizens and they are doing their best to pretend like we don't exist. But we do and the more they act in this manner the better it is for us who want answers not whining by lapdogs of the pharmaceutical industry. Kudos to all the brave activists and advocates for truth.
In 2015 a Time article praised a group of researchers at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign who may, at last, have come up with a way to cut through the misinformation and get the truth across Don’t just tell parents to vaccinate their children, show them what happens if they don’t.
That might have backfired on them. The researchers wanted to scare parents into what "MIGHT" happen to their children. The parents of vaccine damaged children share what ACTUALLY happened to their children. Sadly, those promoting and pushing the billion dollar vaccine movement as 'safe and effective' fail to realize that majority of anti-vaccine parents were parents who were pro-vaccine until they saw the damage it caused.
The voice of parents of children damaged by vaccines is getting louder and bolder. The passage of the SB 277 vaccine mandate in California opened the floodgates of parents who #wedid and saw the movement of education through social media pushed through by TannersDad and others that had never been seen before.
Perhaps the policymakers don't realize that the greater the mandates, the stronger the resistance and the louder the voice of those damaged by vaccines.
