On November 15, 1986 the pharmaceutical industry got an early holiday present–indemnification. A new law was passed that said, “No vaccine manufacturer shall be liable in a civil action for damages arising from a vaccine-related injury or death associated with the administration of a vaccine after October 1, 1988, if the injury or death resulted from side effects that were unavoidable even though the vaccine was properly prepared and was accomplished by proper directions and warnings.”

J.B. Handley writes in How to End the Autism Epidemic, that “the same industry that brought you Vioxx, thalidomide, fen-phen, Prozac, and the opiod epidemic had just had product liability removed and handed over to a newly established “vaccine court” that would be funded with a surtax on every vaccine purchased (yes, Americans fund the vaccine injury compensation program when they pay for a vaccine for themselves or their child) and ultimately managed and backstopped by the federal government.”

When I was a child in 1962, the CDC vaccine schedule recommended 3 vaccines by age five. In 1983, the CDC recommended 10 vaccines by age five. In 2017, the CDC recommends 38 vaccines by age five. If someone asks you if your child is fully vaccinated, you might ask according to which decade? And don’t let the CDC “recommendation” for vaccine schedule fool you. It is becoming mandatory in more and more states.

The vaccine injury court established in 1986 has paid out more than $3.7 billion for vaccine injury claims–all paid by the American taxpayer and not the vaccine manufacturer. With this no risk guarantee, the vaccine industry has ballooned in size from $170 million in the 1980s to $60 billion in 2020. It should be no surprise that more and more vaccines are being added to the CDC vaccine schedule every year. The cost to fully vaccinate a child to age 18 used to be $100 and is now $2,192. The only thing that could slow this financial bonanza is if the public lost faith in the efficacy of vaccines or understood the health risks associated with them. That’s the big reason the CDC continues to reject the science showing vaccines can cause autism in susceptible children.

It is interesting to note that if you live in another country, “fully vaccinated” can mean an entirely different thing from what it means in America. A Danish child gets far fewer vaccinations than an American (only 16 versus 38). “If these vaccines are vitally important, why would a country that serves as an entry point for many to travel to Europe exclude the vaccinations on the American schedule? Hepatitis B vaccine is only give in most European countries to the offspring of mothers who have hepatitis B themselves. Most European countries do not routinely give hepatitis A, rotavirus, varicella (chickenpox), or the flu shot.”

In the United Kingdom, “the chickenpox vaccine isĀ  not part of the routine UK childhood vaccination program because chickenpox is usually a mild illness, particularly in children. There’s also a worry that introducing chickenpox vaccination for all children could increase the risk of chickenpox and shingles in adults.”
