“Vaccine choice” is not about political affiliation, or economic status.

It is an issue of civil rights and of parental rights.

Will you protect the human right to informed consent in medical risk taking…?

Spotlight on measles 2010: Excretion of vaccine strain measles virus in urine and pharyngeal secretions of a child with vaccine associated febrile rash illness, Croatia, March 2010

“We describe excretion of measles vaccine strain Schwarz in a child who developed a febrile rash illness eight days after primary immunisation against measles, mumps and rubella. Throat swabs and urine specimens were collected on the fifth and sixth day of illness, respectively. Genotyping demonstrated measles vaccine strain Schwarz (genotype A). If measles and rubella were not under enhanced surveillance in Croatia, the case would have been either misreported as rubella or not recognised at all.”

October 24, 2013: Vaccine Court Facts

– Should there be a vaccine injury that is recognized by parent and/or doctor then documented, diagnosed, reported on a death cert or otherwise proved – parents can file in the US Court of Federal Claims/Vaccine Program, Office of the Special Masters for vaccine injury (this is what we refer to as “Vaccine Court.”

– US “Vaccine Court”requires *prima facie* proof of cause and there are many flaws in the program.

– US “Vaccine Court” has paid $255 million in 2013 alone.

– In “Vaccine Court” cases, the US DHHS is the defendant, and the US DOJ defends the DHHS in the case, and we the taxpayers fund it.
