Dr Robert Mendelsohn, M.D. Quotes

“One grandmother is worth two M.D.s.” —Robert Mendelsohn, M.D.

“The greatest threat of childhood diseases lies in the dangerous and ineffectual efforts made to prevent them through mass immunization…..There is no convincing scientific evidence that mass inoculations can be credited with eliminating any childhood disease.”–Dr Robert Mendelsohn, M.D.

“Despite the tendency of doctors to call modern medicine an ‘inexact science’, it is more accurate to say there is practically no science in modern medicine at all. Almost everything doctors do is based on a conjecture, a guess, a clinical impression, a whim, a hope, a wish, an opinion or a belief. In short, everything they do is based on anything but solid scientific evidence. Thus, medicine is not a science at all, but a belief system. Beliefs are held by every religion, including the Religion of Modern Medicine.” Robert Mendelsohn MD Preface by Hans Ruesch to 1000 Doctors (and many more) Against Vivisection

“Today your child has about as much chance of contracting diphtheria as he does of being bitten by a cobra.”–Dr Robert Mendelsohn MD

“Robert Mendelsohn had a rule: “You never hear about the dangers of a drug unless another drug to replace it is available.”–Ted Koren DC

“Modern Medicine would rather you die using its remedies than live by using what physicians call quackery”.–Dr Robert Mendelsohn, M.D.

“With the polio vaccine we are witnessing a rerun of the medical reluctance to abandon the smallpox vaccination, which remained as the only source of smallpox-related deaths for three decades after the disease had disappeared. Think of it! For thirty years kids died from smallpox vaccinations even though no longer threatened by the disease.”—-Dr Robert Mendelsohn, M.D.

“The pediatrician’s wanton prescription of powerful drugs indoctrinates children from birth with the philosophy of ‘a pill for every ill’.”… “Doctors are directly responsible for hooking millions of people on prescription drugs. They are also indirectly responsible for the plight of millions more who turn to illegal drugs because they were taught at an early age that drugs can cure anything – including psychological and emotional conditions – that ails them. ” – Robert S. Mendelsohn, M.D., How to Raise a Healthy Child…In Spite of Your Doctor.

“Being a skeptical soul, I have always believed that the most reliable way to determine what people really believe is to observe what they do, not what they say. If the greatest threat of rubella is not to children, but to the fetus yet unborn, pregnant women should be protected against rubella by making certain that their obstetricians won’t give them the disease. Yet, in a California survey reported in the Journal of the American Medical Association, more than 90 percent of the obstetrician-gynecologists refused to be vaccinated. If doctors themselves are afraid of the vaccine, why on earth should the law require that you and other parents allow them to administer it to your kids?”–Dr Mendelsohn MD

“Doctors maintain that the (MMR) inoculation is necessary to prevent measles encephalitis, which they say occurs about once in 1,000 cases. After decades of experience with measles, I question this statistic, and so do many other pediatricians. The incidence of 1/1,000 may be accurate for children who live in conditions of poverty and malnutrition, but in the middle-and upper-income brackets, if one excludes simple sleepiness from the measles itself, the incidence of true encephalitis is probably more like 1/10,000 or 1/100,000.”——Dr Mendelsohn

“I would consider the risks associated with measles vaccination unacceptable even if there were convincing evidence that the vaccine works. There isn’t. While there has been a decline in the incidence of the disease, it began long before the vaccine was introduced. In 1958 there were about 800,000 cases of measles in the United States, but by 1962-the year before a vaccine appeared-the number of cases had dropped by 300,000. During the next four years, while children were being vaccinated with an ineffective and now abandoned “killed virus” vaccine, the number of cases dropped another 300,000. In 1900 there were 13.3 measles deaths per 100,000 population. By 1955, before the first measles shot, the death rate had declined 97.7 percent to only 0.03 deaths per 100,000.”–Dr Mendelsohn MD

“There are significant risks associated with every immunization and numerous contraindictions that may make it dangerous for the shots to be given to your child….There is growing suspicion that immunization against relatively harmless childhood diseases may be responsible for the dramatic increase in autoimmune diseases since mass inoculations were introduced. These are fearful diseases such as cancer, leukemia, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, Lou Gehrig’s disease, lupus erthematosus, and the Guillain-Barre syndrome.” Dr Mendelsohn, M.D.

“Did you know that the whooping cough germ, Bacillus pertussis, when injected into animals, has long been known to lead to the secretion of insulin? In 1979, at the Fourth International Symposium on Pertussis, held in Bethesda, Maryland, it was shown that this same result occurs in those who have received pertussis vaccine. In their publication, “Adverse Reactions after Pertussis Vaccination,” Drs. W. Hennessen and U. Quast suggest, “It seemed of interest to examine these reactions in comparison with the hypoglycemia syndrome.. . .There was a close relation between the two.’ If your child has juvenile diabetes (a disease characterized by wide swings in blood sugar levels), ask your doctor if he has ever heard of this effect of whooping cough vaccine. Maybe it’s time to investigate whether the pertussis vaccine has anything to do with the rapidly rising number of people with juvenile diabetes, adult diabetes, and hypoglycemic all disorders of insulin metabolism.”—Dr Mendelsohn MD (the Peoples Doctor Vol 6 No10)

“Study after study has demonstrated that many women immunized against rubella as children lack evidence of immunity in blood tests given during their adolescent years. Other tests have shown a high vaccine failure rate in children given rubella, measles, and mumps shots, either separately or in combined form.”—Dr Mendelsohn

“Because routine immunizations that bring parents back for repeated office calls are the bread and butter of their specialty, pediatricians continue to defend them to the death. The question parents should be asking is: ‘Whose death?’” —–Robert Mendelsohn, MD

“For a pediatrician to attack what has become the “bread and butter” of pediatric practice is equivalent to a priest denying the infallibility of the pope.——-Dr Robert Mendelsohn, M.D.

“I’m reminded of a debate the famous pediatrician Robert Mendelsohn, MD had with a psychiatrist. The panelist asked them about the Family Bed (everyone sleeping together). “It’s a terrible idea,” said the psychiatrist. “I’d never sleep with my children. It fosters dependency, it confuses them sexually, it’s just plain wrong.” The moderator asked if Dr. Mendelsohn would care to respond. “I agree with the psychiatrist,” said Dr. Mendelsohn. “Psychiatrists should not sleep with their children. But for everyone else, it’s just wonderful. I gives infants the warmth and security they seek. It enhances emotional health and it brings the family closer.”–Ted Koren DC

Medical students are further softened up by being maliciously fatigued. The way to weaken a person’s will in order to mold him to suit your purposes is to make him work hard, especially at night, and never give him a chance to recover. You teach the rat to race. The result is a person too weak to resist the most debilitating instrument medical school uses on its students: fear.
If I had to characterize doctors, I would say their major psychological attribute is fear. They have a drive to achieve security-plus that’s never satisfied because of all the fear that’s drummed into them in medical school: fear of failure, fear of missing a diagnosis, fear of malpractice, fear of remarks by their peers, fear that they’ll have to find honest work. There was a movie some time ago that opened with a marathon dance contest. After a certain length of time all the contestants were eliminated except one. Everybody had to fail except the winner. That’s what medical school has become. Since everybody can’t win, everybody suffers from a loss of self-esteem. Everybody comes out of medical school feeling bad.
Doctors are given one reward for swallowing the fear pill so willingly and for sacrificing the healing instincts and human emotions that might help their practice: arrogance. To hide their fear, they’re taught to adopt the authoritarian attitude and demeanor of their professors. Confessions of a Medical Heretic

“Doctors turn out to be dishonest, corrupt, unethical, sick, poorly educated, and downright stupid more often than the rest of society. When I meet a doctor, I generally figure I’m meeting a person who is narrowminded, prejudiced, and fairly incapable of reasoning and deliberation. Few of the doctors I meet prove my prediction wrong.”

“The admission tests and policies of medical schools virtually guarantee that the students who get in will make poor doctors. The quantitative tests, the Medical College Admission Test, and the reliance on grade point averages funnel through a certain type of personality who is unable and unwilling to communicate with people.” “Medical school does its best to turn smart students stupid, honest students corrupt and healthy students sick. It isn’t very hard to turn a smart student into a stupid one. First of all, the admissions people make sure the professors will get weak-willed, authority-abiding students to work on. Then they give them a curriculum that is absolutely meaningless as far as healing or health are concerned.”

“I don’t advise anyone who has no symptoms to go to the doctor for a physical examination. For people with symptoms, it’s not such a good idea, either. The entire diagnostic procedure — from the moment you enter the office to the moment you leave clutching a prescription or a referral appointment — is a seldom useful ritual.”

“Almost every stage of obstetrical procedure in the hospital is part of the mechanism that enables the doctor to create his own pathology.”

“The door to the doctor’s office ought to bear a surgeon general’s warning that routine physical examinations are dangerous to your health. Why? Because doctors do not see themselves as guardians of health, and they have learned precious little about how to assure it. Instead, they are latter-day Don Quixotes, battling sometimes real but too often imaginary diseases. The disastrous difference is that doctors are not tilting at windmills. Rather, it is people who are damaged by their insistent search for dubious diseases to conquer.”

“The greatest threat of childhood diseases lies in the dangerous and ineffectual efforts made to prevent them through mass immunization…..There is no convincing scientific evidence that mass inoculations can be credited with eliminating any childhood disease.”

What does a Catholic do when he decides that his priests are no good? Sometimes he directly challenges them, but very seldom. He just leaves the Church. And that’s my answer. Leave the Church of Modern Medicine. I see a lot of people doing that today. I see a lot of people going to chiropractors, for example, who wouldn’t have been caught dead in a chiropractor’s office a few years ago. Confessions of a Medical Heretic

The Vaccine Injury Program

U.S. Congress passed the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act in 1986 and the Vaccine Compensation Amendments in 1987 and 1995. The Act establishes a compensation system for those persons who may be injured by routine vaccinations. The system is intended to be expeditious and fair. It is also intended to compensate persons with vaccine injuries without requiring the difficult individual determination of causation of injury and without a demonstration that a manufacturer was negligent or that a vaccine was defective H.R. Rep. 99-908, 99th Cong., (1986).

The Process

A claim may be made for any injury or death thought to be the result of a covered vaccine. Claims may be filed by the injured individual; or a parent, legal guardian, or trustee may file on behalf of a child or an incapacitated person. Compensable injuries are either those listed in the Vaccine Injury Table, which is found in the Code of Federal Regulations, Section 2114 of the Act, or those which petitioners can demonstrate were caused by the vaccine.

The Program is administered jointly by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the U.S. Court of Federal Claims (the Court), and the Department of Justice (DOJ). The process is as follows:

First, if there is a reasonable basis for the claim, Conway, Homer & Chin-Caplan, P.C. will file a petition for compensation with the Court. Next, a physician at the Division of Vaccine Injury Compensation, HHS, reviews each petition to determine whether it meets the criteria for compensation and makes a recommendation on compensability. This recommendation is provided to the Court through a report filed by DOJ, although it is not binding. The HHS position is represented by an attorney from DOJ in hearings before a “special master” who makes the initial decision for compensation under the Program. A special master is an attorney appointed by the judges of the Court. Decisions may be appealed to the Court, then to the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals, and then to the Supreme Court.

No petition may be filed under this Program if a civil action is pending for damages related to the vaccine injury, or if damages were awarded by a court or in a settlement of a civil action against the vaccine manufacturer or administrator.

It is not a requirement to have attorney representation during this process; however, because the Rules of the Court are very specific and must be strictly followed, many petitioners have made the decision to have an attorney represent them. The Act provides for the payment of reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs, regardless of the Court’s decision on compensability, providing the case is brought in good faith and there is a reasonable basis for the claim. An attorney who files a petition must be admitted to the U.S. Court of Federal Claims Bar.


COMPENSATION THAT MAY BE AWARDED

Vaccine-Related Injury

  • Reasonable compensation for past and future unreimbursable medical, custodial care, and rehabilitation costs.
  • $250,000 cap for actual and projected pain and suffering, emotional distress.
  • Lost earnings.
  • Reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs.
  • Deadline for filing: Within 36 months after the first symptoms appeared.

Vaccine-Related Death

  • $250,000 for the estate of the deceased.
  • Reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs.
  • Deadline for filing: Within 24 months of death and within 48 months after the onset of the vaccine-related injury from which the death occurred.

Vaccine Injury Table

The Vaccine Injury Table (Table) makes it easier for some people to get compensation. The Table lists and explains injuries/conditions that are presumed to be caused by vaccines. It also lists time periods in which the first symptom of these injuries/conditions must occur after receiving the vaccine. If the first symptom of these injuries/conditions occurs within the listed time periods, it is presumed that the vaccine was the cause of the injury or condition unless another cause is found. For example, if you received the tetanus vaccines and had a severe allergic reaction (anaphylaxis) within 4 hours after receiving the vaccine, then it is presumed that the tetanus vaccine caused the injury if no other cause is found.

If your injury/condition is not on the Table or if your injury/condition did not occur within the time period on the Table, you must prove that the vaccine caused the injury/condition. Such proof must be based on medical records or opinion, which may include expert witness testimony.

 Qualifications and Aids to Interpretation

(1) Anaphylaxis and anaphylactic shock mean an acute, severe, and potentially lethal systemic allergic reaction. Most cases resolve without sequelae. Signs and symptoms begin minutes to a few hours after exposure. Death, if it occurs, usually results from airway obstruction caused by laryngeal edema or bronchospasm and may be associated with cardiovascular collapse. Other significant clinical signs and symptoms may include the following: Cyanosis, hypotension, bradycardia, tachycardia, arrhythmia, edema of the pharynx and/or trachea and/or larynx with stridor and dyspnea. Autopsy findings may include acute emphysema which results from lower respiratory tract obstruction, edema of the hypopharynx, epiglottis, larynx, or trachea and minimal findings of eosinophilia in the liver, spleen and lungs. When death occurs within minutes of exposure and without signs ofrespiratory distress, there may not be significant pathologic findings.

(2) Encephalopathy. For purposes of the Vaccine Injury Table, a vaccine recipient shall be considered to have suffered an encephalopathy only if such recipient manifests, within the applicable period, an injury meeting the description below of an acute encephalopathy, and then a chronic encephalopathy persists in such person for more than 6 months beyond the date of vaccination.

(i) An acute encephalopathy is one that is sufficiently severe so as to require hospitalization (whether or not hospitalization occurred).

(A) For children less than 18 months of age who present without an associated seizure event, an acute encephalopathy is indicated by a “significantly decreased level of consciousness” (see “D” below) lasting for at least 24 hours. Those children less than 18 months of age who present following a seizure shall be viewed as having an acute encephalopathy if their significantly decreased level of consciousness persists beyond 24 hours and cannot be attributed to a postictal state (seizure) or medication.

(B) For adults and children 18 months of age or older, an acute encephalopathy is one that persists for at least 24 hours and characterized by at least two of the following:

(1) A significant change in mental status that is not medication related; specifically a confusional state, or a delirium, or a psychosis;
(2) A significantly decreased level of consciousness, which is independent of a seizure and cannot be attributed to the effects of medication; and
(3) A seizure associated with loss of consciousness.

(C) Increased intracranial pressure may be a clinical feature of acute encephalopathy in any age group.

(D) A “significantly decreased level of consciousness” is indicated by the presence of at least one of the following clinical signs for at least 24 hours or greater (see paragraphs (2)(I)(A) and (2)(I)(B) of this section for applicable timeframes):

(1) Decreased or absent response to environment (responds, if at all, only to loud voice or painful stimuli);
(2) Decreased or absent eye contact (does not fix gaze upon family members or other individuals); or
(3) Inconsistent or absent responses to external stimuli (does not recognize familiar people or things).

(E) The following clinical features alone, or in combination, do not demonstrate an acute encephalopathy or a significant change in either mental status or level of consciousness as described above: Sleepiness, irritability (fussiness), high-pitched and unusual screaming, persistent inconsolable crying, and bulging fontanelle. Seizures in themselves are not sufficient to constitute a diagnosis of encephalopathy. In the absence of other evidence of an acute encephalopathy, seizures shall not be viewed as the first symptom or manifestation of the onset of an acute encephalopathy.

(ii) Chronic encephalopathy occurs when a change in mental or neurologic status, first manifested during the applicable time period, persists for a period of at least 6 months from the date of vaccination. Individuals who return to a normal neurologic state after the acute encephalopathy shall not be presumed to have suffered residual neurologic damage from that event; any subsequent chronic encephalopathy shall not be presumed to be a sequela of the acute encephalopathy. If a preponderance of the evidence indicates that a child’s chronic encephalopathy is secondary to genetic, prenatal or perinatal factors, that chronic encephalopathy shall not be considered to be a condition set forth in the Table.
(iii) An encephalopathy shall not be considered to be a condition set forth in the Table if in a proceeding on a petition, it is shown by a preponderance of the evidence that the encephalopathy was caused by an infection, a toxin, a metabolic disturbance, a structural lesion, a genetic disorder or trauma (without regard to whether the cause of the infection, toxin, trauma, metabolic disturbance, structural lesion or genetic disorder is known). If at the time a decision is made on a petition filed under section 2111(b) of the Act for a vaccine-related injury or death, it is not possible to determine the cause by a preponderance of the evidence of an encephalopathy, the encephalopathy shall be considered to be a condition set forth in the Table.
(iv) In determining whether or not an encephalopathy is a condition set forth in the Table, the Court shall consider the entire medical record.

(3) Seizure and convulsion. For purposes of paragraphs (b)(2) of this section, the terms, “seizure” and “convulsion” include myoclonic, generalized tonic-clonic (grand mal), and simple and complex partial seizures. Absence (petit mal) seizures shall not be considered to be a condition set forth in the Table. Jerking movements or staring episodes alone are not necessarily an indication of seizure activity.

(4) Sequela. The term “sequela” means a condition or event which was actually caused by a condition listed in the Vaccine Injury Table.

(5) Chronic Arthritis. For purposes of the Vaccine Injury Table, chronic arthritis may be found in a person with no history in the 3 years prior to vaccination of arthropathy (joint disease) on the basis of:

(A) Medical documentation, recorded within 30 days after the onset, of objective signs of acute arthritis (joint swelling) that occurred between 7 and 42 days after a rubella vaccination;
(B) Medical documentation (recorded within 3 years after the onset of acute arthritis) of the persistence of objective signs of intermittent or continuous arthritis for more than 6 months following vaccination:
(C) Medical documentation of an antibody response to the rubella virus.

For purposes of the Vaccine Injury Table, the following shall not be considered as chronic arthritis: Musculoskeletal disorders such as diffuse connective tissue diseases (including but not limited to rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, systemic sclerosis, mixed connective tissue disease, polymyositis/dermatomyositis, fibromyalgia, necrotizing vasculitis and vasculopathies and Sjogren’s Syndrome), degenerative joint disease, infectious agents other than rubella (whether by direct invasion or as an immune reaction), metabolic and endocrine diseases, trauma, neoplasms, neuropathic disorders, bone and cartilage disorders and arthritis associated with ankylosing spondylitis, psoriasis, inflammatory bowel disease, Reiter’s syndrome, or blood disorders.

Arthralgia (joint pain) or stiffness without joint swelling shall not be viewed as chronic arthritis for purposes of the Vaccine Injury Table.

(6) Brachial neuritis is defined as dysfunction limited to the upper extremity nerve plexus (i.e., its trunks, divisions, or cords) without involvement of other peripheral (e.g., nerve roots or a single peripheral nerve) or central (e.g., spinal cord) nervous system structures. A deep, steady, often severe aching pain in the shoulder and upper arm usually heralds onset of the condition. The pain is followed in days or weeks by weakness and atrophy in upper extremity muscle groups. Sensory loss may accompany the motor deficits, but is generally a less notable clinical feature. The neuritis, or plexopathy, may be present on the same side as or the opposite side of the injection; it is sometimes bilateral, affecting both upper extremities. Weakness is required before the diagnosis can be made. Motor, sensory, and reflex findings on physical examination and the results of nerve conduction and electromyographic studies must be consistent in confirming that dysfunction is attributable to the brachial plexus. The condition should thereby be distinguishable from conditions that may give rise to dysfunction of nerve roots (i.e., radiculopathies) and peripheral nerves (i.e., including multiple mononeuropathies), as well as other peripheral and central nervous system structures (e.g., cranial neuropathies and myelopathies).

(7) Thrombocytopenic purpura is defined by a serum platelet count less than 50,000/mm3. Thrombocytopenic purpura does not include cases of thrombocytopenia associated with other causes such as hypersplenism, autoimmune disorders (including alloantibodies from previous transfusions) myelodysplasias, lymphoproliferative disorders, congenital thrombocytopenia or hemolytic uremic syndrome. This does not include cases of immune (formerly called idiopathic) thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) that are mediated, for example, by viral or fungal infections, toxins or drugs. Thrombocytopenic purpura does not include cases of thrombocytopenia associated with disseminated intravascular coagulation, as observed with bacterial and viral infections. Viral infections include, for example, those infections secondary to Epstein Barr virus, cytomegalovirus, hepatitis A and B, rhinovirus, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), adenovirus, and dengue virus. An antecedent viral infection may be demonstrated by clinical signs and symptoms and need not be confirmed by culture or serologic testing. Bone marrow examination, if performed, must reveal a normal or an increased number of megakaryocytes in an otherwise normal marrow.

(8) Vaccine-strain measles viral infection is defined as a disease caused by the vaccine-strain that should be determined by vaccine‑specific monoclonal antibody or polymerase chain reaction tests.

(9) Vaccine-strain polio viral infection is defined as a disease caused by poliovirus that is isolated from the affected tissue and should be determined to be the vaccine-strain by oligonucleotide or polymerase chain reaction. Isolation of poliovirus from the stool is not sufficient to establish a tissue specific infection or disease caused by vaccine-strain poliovirus.

Q: Can a vaccination cause Death or Autism?

Q: Can a vaccination cause Death or Autism?

A: Yes

Q: How?

A. 1). Many vaccines (and medicines) are incorrectly administered. The person administering the vaccine fails to aspirate the syringe (draw back on the plunger to see if blood flows back into the syringe, indicating they have struck a vein). Because the veins of an infant are small and narrow, they may collapse when the syringe is aspirated, giving a FALSE indication that it is safe to administer the vaccine. As a result, the vaccine or medicine is injected directly into a vein, and circulates throughout the cardiovascular system, infiltrating the brain, intestines, and other organs. The vein may also blow up like a balloon and rupture. This may be marked by a purple area at or near the injection site. The vaccine or medicine now circulates in the blood, causing varying degrees of Hypercoagulability. In more serious cases, the increased fibrin inhibits oxygen and nutrient transport. In a weakened state, a child may succumb to asphyxia, commonly known as sudden infant death syndrome, or SIDS.

2). Even when properly administered, a vaccination can be life threatening if viral, bacterial, or fungal pathogens are already present in the body of the person to be vaccinated, and neurologically disabling if heavy metals such as mercury are present in the body, or injected as an adjuvant in another vaccine, when multiple vaccines are simultaneously administered, or other toxic loads are present.

3). According to Doctor Boyd Haley, professor and Chair of the Chemistry Department at the University of Kentucky, there is a 100 times toxic effect if aluminum and mercury appear at the same time. This means that if you give multiple vaccinations, and one or more contain an aluminum adjuvant, and just one contains a mercury adjuvant (like many vaccines containing an attenuated virus), the toxic effect is the equivalent to giving a 2,500 microgram injection of mercury. If the vaccine recipient already has the smallest trace of mercury in his body, the effect is also 100 times for a single shot of a new vaccine that now contains an aluminum adjuvant, instead of methylmercury.

Dr. Boyd Haley selected 100 rats to use in each of his experiments.

He injected 100 rats with the type of mercury used in vaccines. 1 rat out of 100 died.

He then injected 100 rats with the type of mercury used in vaccines, AND also with the type of aluminum used in the new “mercury free vaccines.” 100 out of 100 rats died.

When trace amounts of mercury are already present in the human body from vaccines, eating fish, or amalgam fillings, a “mercury free” vaccine that contains 225 micrograms of aluminum can be debilitating, cause myelin degeneration around nerves, muscle pain, chronic fatigue syndrome, and even death,

4). Patients receiving a vaccination are virtually never asked about or tested for allergic reactions, or questioned about family history ans sensitivity to vaccine ingredients.

5). An estimated 1 in 50 humans suffer from a genetic IRAK4 impeded immune response (deficiency), which results in increased inflammation, plus increased bacterial, viral, and fungal infections. No precautions are being taken to protect the lives of these children when given a vaccine (PART OF THE WATCHDOG USA NETWORK, 2009).

National Immunization Registry – A Threat to Privacy and Freedom

Since 1993, our government and private foundations have worked with a single-minded focus and clarity of vision to create a National Immunization Registry despite the threats this registry poses to our privacy and freedom. This has been done behind closed doors with the input of the industries that stand to gain tremendous financial rewards and without the input of the citizens they plan to track.

It is very clear from reviewing CDC documentation on the National Immunization Registry Plan, that U.S. government agencies and officials are ostensibly using public health to create a massive networked computer database to create a national surveillance and enforcement system. This system will monitor, intimidate, harass, and punish conscientious parents, their children, and their health care providers if they do not conform with every government recommended vaccination health care policy. We are requesting that our elected government officials, the National Vaccine Advisory Committee, and the National Immunization Program put a stop to this National Immunization Registry Plan.

High quality public health is a goal that we all share, however, a national vaccination surveillance, monitoring and enforcement system orchestrated by the federal government is not an acceptable means to that end.

When your doctor won’t report a vaccine reaction…

Federal law requires doctors or other health care professionals who give vaccines to:

  • REPORT ADVERSE EVENTS (hospitalizations, injuries, and deaths) occurring within 30 days of vaccination, including convulsions, shock, paralysis and other serious events to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). The doctor or other health care provider that administered the vaccination is not supposed to make a judgment as to whether the adverse event that occurred following vaccination was caused by the vaccine or not caused by the vaccine. The law says it is the duty of all vaccine administrators to report the event to the federal government regardless of whether they believe the vaccine caused the event.
  • RECORD ADVERSE EVENTS following vaccination in a person’s permanent medical record.
  • KEEP A PERMANENT RECORD of the date, manufacturer’s name and lot number of all vaccines given.
  • PROVIDE INFORMATION on the vaccine benefits and risks BEFORE the vaccine is given either to the individual who will receive the vaccine or the parent or guardian of that individual.



If your doctor refuses to report a serious event which occurred following a vaccination given to you or your child within 30 days of vaccination to VAERS, you may:


  • FILE A COMPLAINT OF PROFESSIONAL MISCONDUCT to your State Board of Medical Examiners.  


      REPORT IT TO THE NATIONAL VACCINE INFORMATION CENTER, (NVIC), a national, non-profit, educational organization founded in 1982 and dedicated to preventing vaccine injuries and deaths through public education. By reporting to NVIC, they can better monitor the effectiveness of the government’s Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System and gather important data on vaccine reactions for analysis that the government and vaccine manufacturers do not do. Call (703)-938-DPT3 and ask for an NVIC Vaccine Adverse Event Registry questionnaire to be sent to you. You may also report a vaccine reaction to NVIC by accessing their web site at http://www.nvic.org
