REFUSAL OF RECOMMENDED
As the parent/guardian of
__________________________, I have investigated the risks and benefits of the following vaccines and diseases. I am aware that there are documented cases of people contracting diseases for which they are fully vaccinated according to ACIP recommendations and that the manufacturers of the vaccines do not guarantee 100% 'efficacy' and rarely measure 'clinical effectiveness' which is an entirely different matter. I am also aware that VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System) receives approximately 12,000 reports of adverse reactions from vaccines each year. The Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (The Vaccine Court) received 366 new petitions for compensation between 1/5/04 and 3/30/04. The National Vaccine Injury Fund, created in 1986 to compensate families of vaccine-damaged children, had paid out over 1.4 billion dollars in compensation 1986 to 10/21/04.
- POLIO: I have been informed of the risk of my child
developing paralytic disease and meningitis associated with
poliomyelitis. I understand that even under epidemic conditions,
natural polio produces no symptoms in over 90% of those exposed to
it.(1) I understand that there have been no cases of wild polio in
the US in the last 20 years and that those cases which have been
documented have been caused by the vaccine.(2)
- I understand the following side effects
for the vaccine are possible:
- Killed virus
polio: temperature of
*102° in up to 38%, sleepiness, fussiness, crying, decreased
appetite, vomiting, Guillain-Barré Syndrome and allergic
reaction in those allergic to neomycin, polymyxin B and
streptomycin. Precautions include those who have had a previous
negative reaction, pregnant women, and possibly those with
HIV/AIDS or otherwise compromised immune systems.
- Live virus
polio: Reactions include
contraction of polio by those who have received the virus and by
those who have come into contact with body fluids and wastes of
the immunized person. Paralytic symptoms may follow contraction of
polio. Live virus is reportedly shed for up to 8 weeks after the
inoculation. Guillain-Barré Syndrome has also been noted.
Not recommended for use in households where someone has a
compromised immune system, for pregnant women, or where a previous
reaction has been reported.(3)
- Killed virus Ipol® is grown on
monkey kidney cells, contains formaldehyde, and triple
antibiotics. Poliovax® is grown on cells from an aborted baby,
contains formaldehyde, cow serum and triple antibiotic
solution.(4) The monkey kidney cells used in the original killed
polio vaccine contains SIV-40 and has been found in tumor cells of
children whose parent's were vaccinated against polio using the
contaminated virus.(5) The live vaccine is grown on monkey kidney
cells, antibiotics and calf serum.
- HEMOPHILUS INFLUENZAE
B: I have been informed of the
risk of my child developing meningitis (although this vaccine will
not protect the child from meningitis from all other forms such as
pneumococcus, and meningococcus, viruses, and fungi), pneumonia,
and infections of the blood, joints, bone, and soft tissue
associated with Hemophilus Influenzae B. I understand that this
disease is most likely in children up to 15 months of age and is
fatal in 3-6% of children who contract it. Incidence of this
disease today is low and the vaccine has not proven to be highly
effective in 41% of cases, according to some studies.(6) Treatment
- The vaccine is often combined with the
DPT which has the highest reaction rate of any vaccine available
today. Reactions include: contracting HIB, localized pain,
erythema and induration, fever >100.6°, irritability,
lethargy, anorexia, rhinorrhea, diarrhea, vomiting, cough, when
administered alone. Reactions occurred in up to 30% of patients.
When administered in conjunction with the DPT, reactions include
local tenderness erythema and induration, fever >100.8°,
irritability, drowsiness, anorexia, diarrhea, vomiting, persistent
crying, seizures, urticaria, hives, renal failure,
Guillain-Barré Syndrome and death. Reactions occurred in up
to 77.9% of patients.(7)
- The vaccine contains yeast, thimerosal
(mercury derivative), and diphtheria toxoid when given
- PERTUSSIS: I have been informed of the risk of my child
developing whooping cough, pneumonia, convulsions, inflammation of
the brain, and death associated with pertussis. I understand the
disease is rarely fatal, with a 99.8% recovery rate. It is most
serious and life-threatening in children under 6 months old, but
there are adequate methods of treatment available.(9)
- The vaccine is most often given in
conjunction with diphtheria and tetanus as the DPT or as the
- Pertussis vaccine may cause: fevers
>106, pain swelling, diarrhea, projectile vomiting, excessive
sleepiness, high--pitched screaming, inconsolable crying bouts,
seizures, convulsions, collapse, shock, breathing problems, brain
damage and SIDS. One in 600 suffer a severe reaction in one study
(10) and 1 in 875 suffered shock-collapse and convulsions.(11)
Those in the 2nd study were only tracked for the first 48 hours
following immunization. A more recent study indicates that 1 in
100 react with convulsions, collapse, or high-pitched screaming
and 1 in 3 of those cases sustained permanent brain damage.(12) In
a study of 103 children who died of SIDS, 70% died within 3 weeks
of the DPT vaccine and 37% of those died within the first
- The DaPT is recommended as a safer
option for vaccination. Side effects of the DaPT were only tracked
for 72 hours and included: tenderness, erythema, induration, fever
>102.2°, drowsiness, fretfulness, vomiting, upper
respiratory infection, diarrhea, rash, febrile seizures,
persistent or unusual crying, lethargy, hypronic-hyporesponsive
episode, urticaria, anaphylactic shock, convulsions,
encephalopathy, mono- and polyneuropathies and death.(14) Not
recommended for children under 15 months or for those who have not
had 3 injections of the DPT.
- Either form of the vaccine contains
thimerosal (mercury derivative), formaldehyde, and aluminum
- DIPHTHERIA: I have been informed of the risk of my child
developing paralysis, heart failure, or respiratory failure
associated with diphtheria. I have also been informed that there
have only been 5 cases reported annually since 1980.(16) I am also
aware that diphtheria is rarely fatal and treated with antibiotics
and bed rest. (17)
- The Diphtheria component is most often
given within the DPT or DaPT and includes the same side effects
and reactions as those listed for pertussis.
- TETANUS: I have been informed of the risk of my child
developing fatal neuromuscular disease related to tetanus. I
understand that the incidence of tetanus is low, and there is an
antitoxin, should we decline the immunization. I understand that
contracting tetanus does not provide life-long immunity, and
neither does the vaccine. I understand that to prevent more severe
reactions from the vaccine, the tetanus component has been so
significantly "diluted" that it is clinically ineffective.(18) I
understand that the death rate for properly treated cases of
tetanus may be as high as 20%.(19)
- Side effects of the tetanus vaccine
alone include: high fever, pain, recurrent abscess formation,
inner ear nerve damage, demyelinating neuropathy, anaphylactic
shock and loss of consciousness.(20)
- Tetanus given in the DPT or DaPT shot
include the same side effects and reactions as those listed for
- RUBEOLA (MEASLES): I have been informed of the risk of my child
developing pneumonia, encephalitis (inflammation of the brain),
degenerative disease of the nervous system with convulsions
(subacute sclerosing panencephalitis) related to rubeola. I
understand the death rate for measles is .03 in 100,000.(21) I
understand that since 1984, over 55% of documented, confirmed
cases of measles have been in fully immunized persons.(22)
- I understand that the greatest risk of
the measles vaccine may be to push the incidence of this disease
into the late teens and adulthood where it is more likely to be
fatal or cause more adverse and long-term effects.(23)
- The measles vaccine is a live vaccine,
and carries the risk that it will cause the patient to contract
measles. Other adverse reactions include: stinging or burning at
the injection site, anaphylaxis, fever up to one month following
injection, rash, cough, rhinitis, erythema multiforme,
lymphadenopathy, urticaria, diarrhea, febrile convulsions,
seizures, thrombocytopenia, purpura, vasculitis, optic neuritis,
retrobulbar neuritis, papillitis, retinitis, encephalitis and
encephalopathy, ocular palsies, Guillain-Barré Syndrome,
ataxia, and subacute sclerosing panencephalitis.(24)
- Measles vaccine is most often given as a
part of the MMR which includes the following side effects: burning
or stinging at injection site, malaise, sore throat, cough,
rhinitis, headache, dizziness, fever, rash, nausea, vomiting,
diarrhea, erythema, induration, tenderness, lymphadenopathy,
parotitius, orchitis, nerve deafness, thrombocytopenia, purpura,
allergic reactions, urticaria, polyneuritis, arthralgia,
arthritis, anaphylaxis, vasculitis, otitis media, conjunctivitis,
febrile convulsions, seizures, syncope, erythema multiforme, optic
neuritis, retrobulbar neuritis, papillitis, retinitis,
encephalitis and encephalopathy, ocular palsies,
Guillain-Barré Syndrome, ataxia, subacute sclerosing
panencephalitis,(25) and a recent study from Europe indicates that
there may be a link between the MMR (measles/mumps/rubella)
vaccine and autism and irritable bowel syndrome.(26)
- Measles vaccine contains chick embryo
cells, neomycin, sorbitol and hydrolyzed gelatin. MMR contains all
live vaccines, chick embryo, cells from aborted babies, neomycin,
sorbitol and hydrolyzed gelatin.(27)
- MUMPS: I have been informed of the risk of my child
developing inflammation of the testicles, joints, kidneys, and/or
thyroid, and hearing impairment related to mumps. I understand
that mumps is rarely harmful in childhood, and that most of the
above risks occur when mumps is contracted in adolescence or
- I understand that there is a Mumps
vaccine which poses the following risks: contraction of mumps from
the live vaccine, burning or stinging at the injection site,
anaphylaxis, cough, rhinitis, fever, diarrhea, vasculitis,
parotitis, orchitis, purpura, urticaria, erythema multiforme,
optic neuritis, retrobulbar neuritis, syncope, encephalitis,
febrile seizures, and nerve deafness.(29)
- Mumps is usually given in the MMR and
may cause those side effects and adverse reactions as noted in the
measles section above.
- Mumps vaccine is live and should not be
given to pregnant women. It is cultured in chick embryos and
contains sorbitol and hydrolyzed gelatin.(30)
- RUBELLA (GERMAN
MEASLES): I have been informed of
the risk of my child developing inflammation of the brain or
joints, and of the risk of birth defects (including eye defects,
heart defects, deafness, mental retardation, growth failure,
jaundice, and disorders of blood clotting) in infants born to
mothers who contract rubella during pregnancy, related to rubella.
Therefore, I understand that the greatest risk to my child may be
if she never contracts rubella as a child, but when she is
pregnant and it damages her unborn child. If she contract rubella
in childhood, she is immune for life, and prior to the vaccine 85%
of the population was immune.(31) I understand that if she is not
immune as an adult, she can choose to take the vaccine prior to
becoming pregnant. I understand that many of those who contract
rubella have been immunized (up to 80%). (32)
- Adverse reactions from the vaccine among
teenage girls is 5-10% and 30% in adult women.(33) Adverse
reactions include: contracting rubella from the live virus in the
vaccine, burning or stinging at the site, lymphadenopathy,
urticaria, rash, malaise, sore throat, fever, headache, dizziness,
nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, polyneuritis, arthralgia, arthritis,
local pain and inflammation, erythema multiforme, cough, rhinitis,
vasculitis, anaphylaxis, syncope, optic neuritis, retrobulbar
neuritis, papillitis, Guillain-Barré Syndrome,
encephalitis, thrombocytopenia, purpura, and Chronic Fatigue
- Rubella is most often administered in
the MMR and may cause those side effects and adverse reactions
listed under measles.
- Rubella is cultured on the tissue of an
aborted child. This child was the 27th child aborted and tested by
researchers due to exposure to rubella in a pregnant woman. It
contains neomycin, sorbitol and hydrolyzed gelatin.(35)
- HEPATITIS B: I have been informed of the risk of my child
developing Hepatitis B viral infection which can cause chronic
inflammation of the liver leading to cirrhosis, liver cancer, and
possibly death. I understand that my child's risk of developing
Hepatitis B is low if I am not a carrier or infected, if my child
does not engage in promiscuous sex or use drugs. I understand that
there is antibiotic treatment for HepB and that most of those who
contract it recover.(36) I understand that the HepB vaccine only
contains strains of HepB and is not effective against HepA, C, D,
E, F, or G.
- I understand that the HepB vaccine has
the following side effect and adverse reactions: induration,
erythema, swelling, fever, headache, dizziness, pain, prutitus,
ecchymosis, sweating, malaise, chills, weakness, flushing,
tingling, hypotension, flu-like symptoms, upper respiratory
illness, nausea, anorexia, abdominal pain and cramping, vomiting,
constipation, diarrhea, lymphadenopathy, pain or stiffness in
muscles and joints, arthralgia, myalgia, back pain, rash,
urticaria, petechiae, sleepiness, insomnia, irritability,
agitation, anaphylaxis, angioedema, arthritis,
tachycardia/palpitations, bronchospasm, abnormal liver function
tests, dyspepsia, migraine, syncope, paresis neuropathy,
hypothesis, paresthesis, Guillain-Barré Syndrome, Bell's
Palsy, transverse myelitis, optic neuritis, multiple sclerosis,
thrombocytopenia, eczema, purpura, herpes zoster, erythema
modosum, alopecia, conjunctivitis, keratisis, visual disturbances,
vertigo, tinnitus, earache, and dysuria.(37) The studies only
followed patients for 4 days post-vaccination.
- The most commonly used HepB vaccine
contains thimerosal, although a relatively new release does not
contain thimerosal. The vaccine also contains: aluminum hydroxide,
yeast protein, and phosphate buffers.(38)
- VARICELLA (CHICKENPOX): I have been informed of the risk of my child
developing chicken pox which could potentially result in
pneumonia, secondary skin or generalized infections, or, if caught
during pregnancy, birth defects in the baby. I understand chicken
pox is generally benign in children, but results in significant
lost hours at work for parents. Chicken pox in adults often
manifests as shingles, a chronic and painful condition. I also
understand that contracting chicken pox later in life may increase
my risk for herpes simplex.
- Side effects and adverse reactions for
the chicken pox vaccine include: contracting chicken pox from the
live vaccine (27%), pain and redness at site, swelling, erythema,
rash, pruritus, hematoma, induration, stiffness, upper respiratory
illness, cough, irritability/nervousness, fatigue, disturbed
sleep, diarrhea, loss of appetite, vomiting, otitis, diaper
rash/contact rash, nausea, eye complaints, chills,
lymphadenopathy, myalgia, lower respiratory illness, headache,
malaise, abdominal pain, other rash, allergic reactions
including rash and hives, stiff neck, heat rash/prickly heat,
arthralgia, eczema/dry skin/dermatitis, constipation, itching,
pneunonitis, febrile seizures, and cold/canker sore.(39)
- Varicella vaccine is cultured on cells
from aborted babies, and guinea pig cell cultures. It contains
live virus, monosodium glutamate (msg), sucrose, phosphate,
processed gelatin, neomycin and fetal calf serum. (40)
- HEPATITIS A (HAV): I have been informed of the risk of my child
developing HAV which could potentially result in prolonged or
relapsed hepatitis, but will not result in chronic hepatitis
disease. (41) HAV usually causes mild "flu-like" illness,
jaundice, severe stomach pains and diarrhea; and, in rare cases
may result in death. Infection confers lifelong immunity. (42) I
understand that the CDC admits that good personal hygiene
(handwashing) and proper santitation can prevent HAV. (43)
- HAV infection is spread by contaminated
water or food, infected food handlers, unsanitary conditions
following natural disasters, ingestion of raw or undercooked
shellfish, institutionalized individuals, children not yet toilet
trained, blood transfusions or sharing needles with infected
people. Transmission is most likely in developing countries where
sanitation is poor and infection rate of children under 5 is 90%.
Fatality rate is less than .6% overall, and 70% of those in
patients over 49 years, many of whom have underlying liver
disease. (44) Other at-risk populations include those living on
American Indian reservations and in Alaskan Native villages,
homosexually active men, IV drug users, people using clotting
factor concentrates and international travelers. (45)
- Side effects and adverse reactions from
the vaccine include: injection-site soreness, headache, fever,
malaise, induration, redness, swelling, fatigue, anorexia, nausea,
pruritis, rash, utricaria, pharyngitis, upper respiratory tract
infections, abdominal pain, diarrhea, dysgeusia, vomiting,
arthralgia, elevated cratine phosphokinase, myalgia,
lymphadenopathy, hypertonic episodes, insomnia, photophobia, and
- Aborted fetal tissue is an ingredient in
the Havrix® Hep A vaccine, as is formaldehyde, aluminum
hydroxide and 2-phenozyethanol.(47)
- There is currently a combination Hep A
and B vaccine, Twinrix®, being tested in the UK. (48) Twinrix
is grown in human cell cultures, contains 2-phenoxyethanol,
neomycin sulfate, polysorbate, tromentamol and formaldehyde.
- PNEUMOCOCCAL: I have been informed of the risk of my child
developing pneumococcal disease which could result in meningitis,
blood infection, pneumonia and/or ear infections. Iunderstand
studies indicate that this vaccine may only decrease ear
infections by 9%, and only result in a 20% reduction in chronic
ear infections and ear tube insertion in that group.
- I understand that my child has a
7.5:5,000 chance of deveoping this disease if he or she is under
age 2 and a 1:5000 chance of developing it if over age 2. Risk
factors for developing this disease are: immunoglobulin
deficiency, nephrotic syndrome, Hodgkin's disease, congenital or
acquired immunodeficiency, some upper respiratory infections,
splenic dysfunctions, splenectomy or organ transplant. This
vaccine (PCV) was originally marketed for immunocompromised
children. (50) This vaccine is contraindicated to children with
thrombocytopenia, coagualtion disorders, or sensitivity to
- Possible side effects and complications
from the vaccine include: erythema, induration, tenderness,
interference of limb movement, inflamation, fever, irritability,
drowsiness, restless sleep, decreased appetite, vomiting,
diarrhea, fussiness, rash, hives, bronchitis, asthma, pneumonia,
otitis media (ear infection), sepsis, seizure, anaphylaxis and
death.(52) Recipients were followed for 3 days and almost 10% of
the subjects made a visit to the emergency room in the follow-up
period. There were 8 cases of SIDS in the 17,066 subjects involved
in the trial.(53) Note: Children in the studies' control group
received another experimental vaccine, so there have been no trial
studies done with children who received no vaccine.(54)
- Prevnar contains .125 mg of aluminum
sulfate, protein polysaccharides from 7 strains of strep.
pneumoniae bacteria, diphtheria toxin, casamino acids, yeast
extract. Studies indicate that it may interfere with the safety
and efficacy of other vaccines.(55)
- FLU: I have been informed of the risk of my child developing influenza, which could result in hospitalization for respiratory complications, pneumonia and death. I understand less than 175 people died from the flu in the US during 2003. I understand that there is no guarantee that the flu strains chosen for this year will be the flu strains that are active this year. I understand that from 1999 - 2003, 70 - 80% of the sniffles, fevers, and body aches did not test positive for influenza regardless of the flu strain used.
- The most common reactions to injected flu vaccines, which begin within 12 hours of vaccination and can last several days are: fever, fatigue, painful joints and headache. The most serious reaction that has been associated with flu vaccine is Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS), which occurs most often within two to four weeks of vaccination. GBS is an immune mediated nerve disorder characterized by muscle weakness, unsteady gait, numbness, tingling, pain and sometimes paralysis of one or more limbs or the face. Recovery takes several months and can include residual disability. Less than 5 percent of GBS cases end in death. Brain and nerve disorders such as encephalopathy, optic neuritis, partial facial paralysis, and brachial plexus neuropathy as well as vasculitis also have been reported following the flu vaccine, although a definite causal relationship has not been established. (56) A tenfold increase in Alzheimer's disease exists for those who receive the flu vaccine five years in a row. (57)
- FluMist: Reported adverse effects in children include runny nose, nasal congestion, cough, sore throat, headache, irritability, decreased activity, fever, chills, muscle aches, and vomiting. In adults the most common side effects were runny nose, cough, sore throat, headache, muscle aches, fever, chills and tiredness or weakness. Other adverse events that occurred in children were abdominal pain, asthma, bronchitis, conjunctivitis, viral syndrome, otitis media (middle ear infection), and wheezing or shortness of breath.(58)
- Fluzone is propagated in chick embryos. It contains formaldehyde, sucrose, polyethylene glycol, sodium phosphate, salt and thimerosal.(59) Fluvirin is prepared in chicken eggs and contains thimerosal, neomycin, polymyxin, and phosphate-buffered saline. (60)
- FluMist is a live vaccine propagated in chicken eggs, and contains potassium phosphate, sucrose (table sugar) and monosodium glutamate (MSG). (61)
- HUMAN PAPILLOMAVIRUS (HPV): I have been informed of the risk of developing HPV. HPV is a sexually-transmitted disease that can cause genital warts, and it’s most severe stage, cervical cancer. I understand that there are more than 100 forms of HPV and that the currently available vaccine only covers four of the strains; current screening for HPV looks for 13 “high risk” strains. The CDC estimated that 20 million people in the US had HPV and many strains cause no harm. (62) I understand current research shows that most women will quickly clear the infection on their own, and very few will develop pre-cancerous or cancerous lesions. Use of the vaccine will not cure HPV infection, and the duration of the longest HPV vaccine studies covered less than 50% of the time it takes to progress from CIN 2 or 3 levels to cervical cancer, so 100% efficacy cannot realistically be proven. (63) HPV vaccination does not take the place of routine Pap screens. (64)
- The most common reactions to the HPV vaccines were pain, swelling, redness and itching at the injection site. More than 90% of vaccine test subjects and more than 85% of subjects receiving the aluminum-containing placebo experienced at least one of these reactions. (65) Other reactions from the vaccine included: systemic fever, nausea, nasopharyngitis, dizziness, diarrhea, vomiting, myalgia, cough, upper respiratory tract infection, malaise, arthralgia, insomnia and nasal congestion. More severe reactions included headache, gastroenteritis, appendicitis, pelvic inflammatory disease, asthma, pulmonary embolism, sepsis, arrhythmia, juvenile arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, arthritis and reactive arthritis. There were also statistically higher levels of birth defects in women who got pregnant within 30 days of receiving the vaccine and in more than 30 cases of birth defects in women who became pregnant after 30 days from either Gardasil® or the aluminum-containing placebo. (66)
- Gardasil® is currently the only HPV vaccine approved for use and contains 225mcg of aluminum hydroxyphosphate sulfate, sodium chloride, L-histidine, polysorbate 80, sodium borate, water, and proteins from HPV strains 6, 11, 16 and 18 grown in yeast fermentation medium. (67)
