Behind the needle: Who are the puppeteers of childhood immunizations?

california-wages-war-against-medical-freedom(NaturalHealth365)  In a world where shaming and punishing individuals for wanting the freedom to accept or decline medical interventions is becoming the unquestioned status quo, the state of California continues to carry the banner in Draconian, police-state-like efforts that aim to control the masses.

Even though childhood vax rates are still generally high in this country, more and more parents are saying “no” to the standard childhood immunization schedule set by the pharma-bought Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).  And the truth is, it’s been a long time coming – likely with no small thanks to the absolute mess that was the COVID-19 pandemic.  Unfortunately, that’s not stopping state politicians from trying to push the Big Pharma agenda of making every man, woman, and child in the United States a lifelong customer.

State-sponsored threats against medical freedom continue: California threatens to pull funding for hundreds of schools due to “low” vaccine rates, but critics question accuracy of state’s audit

The California Department of Health (CDPH) recently alerted nearly 600 schools in the state that their funding may be restricted because more than 10 percent of their students were not “fully vaccinated” for the previous academic year.  But the CDPH’s audit of these schools is misleading according to many critics, and at worst, is “driven by Big Pharma and political interests,” writes Children’s Health Defense.  For example:

Speaking to Children’s Health Defense, analyst and writer Karl Kanath notes that per the CDC schedule, several shots required for school entry can be administered later in childhood, e.g., between the ages of 4 and 6 (the age at which many kids enter kindergarten).  But this means that many kids in California could have been labeled “unvaxxed” by the CDPH’s audit even if their parents were simply choosing a delayed schedule, which is an increasingly popular option).

(Referring to California’s elimination of personal belief exemptions to childhood vaccines back in 2015, Kanath also warns of a grim picture for the future of medical freedom in America, saying that “eliminating school exemptions for children is a major step in making exemptions unavailable for adults.”)

Other critics argue that childhood vax statistics are being skewed simply to paint the picture that dropping immunization rates are a crisis-worthy public health issue.  But an April 2022 Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) from the CDC found the U.S. kindergarten vax rate for the 2020-21 school year was 94 percent – a mere one percentage point lower than the previous year.

Who decides how to raise your children: You or the CDC?

Here’s a radical idea:

Parents should have the right to choose whether their children receive all, some, or none of the vaccinations currently recommended by the CDC per the childhood immunization schedule – which is a schedule that seems to grow bigger and bigger as we speak.  But make no mistake: it’s not a choice if parents are made to feel coerced into opting in or punished for opting out.

It’s also not a choice when the CDC claims that choosing not to inject your child with dozens of jabs is across-the-board neglectful or dangerous.  Yes, some “vaccine-preventable” childhood illnesses can be serious and even deadly.  However, there are many nuances that the CDC and other pro-vax agencies fail to discuss when educating parents.  For instance:

  • What is the actual likelihood that these communicable diseases, if contracted, would cause severe symptoms?
  • What are the available treatment options for these communicable diseases?
  • Are there certain communities or demographics more at risk?
  • Are parents truly able to give informed consent to these vaccines when healthcare providers are not explaining the full range of risks, benefits, and alternatives?
  • Have the effects of all these shots given together been adequately studied?  (Spoiler alert: they haven’t)
  • What is the CDC doing to address the fact that fewer than one percent of adverse effects of vaccines are NOT reported, as acknowledged by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services?

We also can’t ignore the fact that the CDC is clearly bought and paid for by the very pharmaceutical companies making insane profits off these “required” vaccines.

Indeed, as recently as November 2019 (which, post-pandemic, seems like an eternity ago), a cohort of advocacy groups released a petition that called on the CDC to stop claiming it doesn’t have any financial support or financial conflict of interest from drug manufacturers.

Reporting on the petition, Ash Clinical News writes that the advocacy groups – including Public Citizen, Knowledge Ecology International, Liberty Coalition, Project on Government Oversight, and U.S. Right to Know – are “concerned about the pharmaceutical industry’s possible undue influence on medical research and practice.” And we can clearly see why:

“The CDC has accepted millions of dollars through the CDC Foundation,” writes Ash Clinical News.  “During fiscal years 2014 through 2018, the CDC Foundation received $79.6 million from companies like Pfizer, Biogen, and Merck.  Since it was created by Congress in 1995, the nonprofit organization has accepted $161 million from corporations.”

It all begs the question: how many of our country’s public policies are dictated by transparent, unbiased, and legitimate science – and how many are dictated by alarmist headlines, skewed statistics, and financial incentives?  And in the meantime, how many of our children are suffering avoidable consequences?
