Britain Suspends Flu Shot for Children Under 5 Years of Age

**So why is this still practiced in the US? How can governments who share their health information quite freely come to different conclusions on the safety and efficacy of the flu shots for under 5s? Rest assured parents, you are fine to not give your child this shot, Britain is proof of that.**

Under-fives will NOT be given flu jab despite explosion in cases
By Sophie Borland

Ministers last night rejected pleas to give the flu jab to the under-fives despite an explosion in cases in the past few days.
The latest figures show that an epidemic has now broken out among children under four and levels have reached a ten-year high.
But ministers and senior Government advisers last night ruled that the immunisation programme for those aged six months to five years – which was quietly cancelled earlier this year – would not have significant ‘gain’.
The decision came after the Government’s interim chief medical officer, Professor Dame Sally Davies, held crisis talks with advisers from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation over whether the jab should be offered to under-fives.

5 Year Old Girl Dies from Flu despite having Flu Shot

**It saddens me to see children die from preventable causes. No one has to die from the flu but unfortunately there is a broken approach to health in most of the world driven by Big Pharma. Health does not come from presription medications and vaccinations. It is quite the contrary. Healthy food and a healthy lifestyle are the most important aspects of ensuring you do not die from a preventable disease. Unfortunately, this poor girl's immune system was compromised by the very vaccines that were to save her. It is a little known fact that vaccines destroy your immune system and do not enhance it. The human body is very capable of defending itself if it is not immuno compromised by the lifestyle we lead, the food and water we injest, or the toxins we insert into our body. Do yourselves and your children a favor and look into natural alternatives to vaccines. Vitamin D, Vitamin C, Elderberry Extract, and the most powerful anti-biotic(without the side effects)/brilliant substance Colloidal Silver. Stop listening to companies selling their products and take your families life into your own hands.**

Levittown — BURLINGTON TOWNSHIP - About 36,000 people typically die each year from the flu, and tragically a 5-year-old girl from the township's B. Bernice Young Elementary School will be recorded as one of those thousands.

School officials said that the student, whose name was not released, had received a flu shot earlier this school year, but that she died last weekend from complications from the Influenza B virus, a strain different from the more viral H1N1, also know as swine flu.

Vaccine Court Rules DTaP Vaccine Killed Child

**As the Wakefield hysteria continues on, the US Court of Federal Claims (Vaccine Court) has awarded the Tembenis family compensation for Complex Febrile Seizure Disorder and Death caused by the DTaP vaccine.**

In the United States Court of Federal Claims
No. 03-2820V
Filed: November 29, 2010
HARRY TEMBENIS and GINA TEMBENIS, ) administrators of the estate of ) ELIAS TEMBENIS, ) Entitlement; Death; ) DTaP; Seizure disorder; epilepsy; Petitioners, ) Cause-in-fact; ) Complex febrile seizure; v. ) No alternative cause ) SECRETARY OF ) HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES, ) ) Respondent. ) Ronald C. Homer, Conway, Homer & Chin-Caplan, P.C., Boston, MA for Petitioners. Ryan D. Pyles, United States Department of Justice, Washington, D.C. for Respondent.

Petitioners have satisfied the legal requirements for proving that Elias’s December 26, 2000 DTaP vaccination was a legal cause of his epilepsy and death. Respondent has not overcome Petitioners’ evidence by proving an alternative cause. Therefore, I find that Petitioners have established entitlement to compensation under the Vaccine Act.

Media, the Medical Establishment, and Big Pharma start up new round of Andrew Wakefield Bashing

**What a combo...Drug Companies, Doctors, and the Media. Three fountains of misinformation that just won't stop with this 1998 study that struck a nerve. And only now, 23 years later is it being discovered, all of the sudden, that his (and the other co-signers) were fraudulent in their claims regarding the MMR vaccine. This wasn't relevant, I suppose, when he was stripped of his medical license in the UK. Going through Google News just now, I went over 12 pages of nothing but Wakefield = Fraud stories. Why? Why the gusto when he has already been 'discredited' to the general public. I guess the smear campaign didn't have the desired effect the first time. Please read this article that points out the facts...including the 'other' studies never mentioned by the 3 'stooges' that supported Wakefield's original findings. I guess those were all "frauds" too..**

National Autism Association Says BMJ Article is Yet Another Attempt to Thwart Vaccine Safety Research

WASHINGTON, Jan. 5, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The British Medical Journal published an article today attacking Dr. Andrew Wakefield and his work towards a better understanding of the medical issues involved in the development of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Dr. Wakefield co-authored the case series reported in the British Journal, The Lancet, in 1998, which identified a novel inflammatory bowel disease in children diagnosed with autism. The association between autism and bowel disease has been repeatedly confirmed by subsequent studies, (1) (2) (3) (4) including a consensus report published a year ago in Pediatrics.(5)

In recent years, US Federal Vaccine Court has conceded multiple times that immunizations have led to cases of autism, or "autistic-like" symptoms, and multiple sub-symptoms associated with the disorder. According to the US Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) in 2008, 1322 cases of vaccine injury compensation settled out of court by the US Government in unpublished settlements. According to a statement from HRSA: "We have compensated cases in which children exhibited an encephalopathy, or general brain disease. Encephalopathy may be accompanied by a medical progression of an array of symptoms including autistic behavior, autism, or seizures."
