Necessary to vaccinate your baby?

Is Vaccination Necessary ? .... Who decide?

For most diseases for which vaccines are given, disease and death rate had already fallen dramatically prior to widespread vaccination.

For example, mortality from diphtheria was already reduced to six per 100,000 children in 1940 - before the introduction of the vaccines. Mortality from measles was already less than one per 100,000 infected in 1955, eight years before the vaccine was produced.

In both cases, the diseases had already become less deadly before the introduction of vaccines.

The decreasing incidence of childhood diseases parallels improved sanitation and hygienic practices rather than vaccination programs. Prior to vaccinations, infectious disease deaths in the US and England declined steadily by an average of about 80 percent during 20th century, with measles mortality declining by 97 percent. Poverty, crowded conditions, poor nutrition, lack of access to medical care and unsanitary conditions are far more likely to contribute to the development and spread of disease than the absence of a vaccine.

Even the most outspoken vaccine advocates admit that vaccine shots are not 100 percent effective. Measles epidemics in populations with an immunization rate of close to 100 percent are not uncommon.

Fife, Scotland, despite a vaccination density of 96 percent, experienced a measles epidemic in1991-1992, followed shortly by outbreaks of measles in other parts of the country, even tough there was a high density of MMR vaccination. Measles, Mumps, Rubella (MMR; combined) is given to children at fifteen months and again at four to six years of age.

The same can be said about Tamilflu which has contribute to the high rate of H1N1 swine-flu cases in USA and England. This vaccine further weakens the already compromised immunity of the patients.

Medical literature documents a surprisingly high incidence of vaccine failures for measles, mumps, polio, small pox, influenza and numerous other contagious disease in vaccinated populations. One of the theories as to why this occurs is that vaccination results in immune suppression, which then creates an increased susceptibility to infections. it is not the mutation rate of the H1N1 virus which cause the patient to die, but the suppressing effect by the Vaccines.
