There is rightly increasing concern by parents and  physicians over the question of vaccine safety and efficacy. We all want our children to be as safe and healthy as possible, but many of us believe that our kids are getting too many vaccines too soon.

A fellow pediatrician and AAP member in Oregon, Dr. Paul Thomas has co-authored a book entitled, “The Vaccine-Friendly Plan” and I endorse his suggested schedule to lessen the risks to our children. Remember , the federal government has paid out over $3.6 billion to the parents of vaccine-injured children; therefore, we know that vaccines do pose real risks. The main idea behind Dr. Thomas’ revised plan is to separate some vaccine doses to reduce the amount of aluminum injected at any one time, and also to eliminate or delay some vaccine doses that may not be necessary.

You as parents need to be aware of the concerns and the reasons why, and then you can make a more informed decision for your child’s care. The problem currently is that doctors themselves are not informed and thus cannot inform parents. They believe what the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) tells them, that all vaccines are “safe and effective”. We will later see how both the CDC and the FDA (Food and Drug) have participated in fraud and deception to deliberately keep us in the dark about vaccines.

First, check out your family history. If there is any autism, severe neurological disease, or autoimmune diseases, Dr. Thomas says to “consider” delaying all vaccines until at least age 5 years. He recommends no vaccines during pregnancy, and none at birth. (We discussed last time the hepatitis B vaccine, recommended at age one day, and why it has way too much aluminum in it and is also completely unnecessary unless mom has hepatitis B.)

Under the “vaccine-friendly” plan:

At age 2 months only the Hib and DTaP are given. The former is for prevention of hemophilus influnzae bacteria infections (quite serious) and is relatively safe, not to mention quite effective.  The DTaP is given primarily since pertussis (whooping cough) is such a risky illness in young babies. Even at that, the risk of your baby dying of pertussis if not vaccinated is about one in a million.  (and diphtheria is very low risk and your baby is likely not going to step on a rusty nail and get tetanus)

The Prevnar (against pneumococcal infections) is delayed until 3 months (repeated at age 5 months,  7 months, and one year) to avoid being given with another aluminum-containing vaccine at age 2 months, 4 months, and 6 months  (DTaP) .

At age 4 months the Hib and DTap are repeated, and again at 6 months.

At 9 months the Prevnar is given if it wasn’t at 7 months

At a year of age the Hib is given with the Prevnar.

At 15 months no shots are given (see age 3)

At 18 months a DTaP is given

At two years no vaccines are given.

At three years the MMR is given by itself (always by itself), as it was not given at the usual time of 15 months, since the nervous system is more vulnerable at that time, and conditions like autism are more likely to follow if it is given early.

At 4-6 years a DTaP is given and parents may consider the varicella (chicken pox) at this time, if the child has not had the disease by then.

At age 10 a Tdap is given and boosted every 5-10 years (have you had yours?)

At 11 years one of the meningococcal vaccines is worth considering, along with varicella if the child has not had the disease

At 12-14 consider the hepatitis B (3-dose series)

At 16-18 consider the meningococcal vaccines and get hepatitis A vaccine

If you examine the CDC-recommended vaccination schedule, you will find that some vaccines are missing here.  These include the IPV, or inactivated polio vaccine, since the risk of getting polio in the U.S. now is zero,  and the vaccine does contain formaldehyde (embalming fluid) and monkey kidney cells (sometimes these are contaminated).

Also omitted are the HPV (Gardasil), due to the lack of testing and the many possible severe reactions, the rotavirus vaccine (which is to help prevent diarrhea from this virus, but which makes one more likely to get sick with a number of other infections), and the influenza vaccine which has its own set of complications which we will focus on in another blog.

Dr. Thomas has three sets of families in his practice, the fully-immunized, those vaccinated according to his “friendly” plan, and those with no vaccinations at all. He did  a retroactive study of over a thousand of his patients and studied them over a 15 year period. It is interesting that he found not a single case of autism in the unvaccinated group and a number in the fully-vaccinated group similar to the one in 47 rate among the general population. It’s worth noting here that Dan Olmsted of UPI studied Amish children in Lancaster, County, Pennsylvania who are not vaccinated. He found only 4 cases of autism and expected 130, given the national rate. One of the 4 had been exposed to high levels of mercury from a power plant, and the other 3 had gotten their vaccines.   

Please help spread the word about vaccines, and take charge of your own children’s health. Well-informed parents are in the best position to make the best choices for care that has such a lasting effect on their children!

Those wishing to examine this schedule in more depth may want to read the book, “The Vaccine-Friendly Plan”.

Enough for now…..

Dr. J
