For those who are still skeptical about vaccination - and the polio vaccine in particular - search up "iron lung polio" on YouTube. Tell me if you would prefer autism to a life like that of retired lawyer Paul Alexander, the last of the survivors of the previous polio epidemic.

@eeeaten First off, I’m so glad the CDC and the media warned the public, in 2013, that getting vaccinated with DTaP put their kids at greater risk of getting this new resistant strain of pertussis. I recently read a 2014 DTaP study, done on baboons, that also backs up my case. But, as far as your study, notice how they excluded the unvaccinated individuals from the study. Yes. I read it. “Participants were excluded from the analysis if their vaccination history was unknown”. Unvaccinated individuals were included in the unknown group. Why? Because unvaccinated individuals show better health outcomes. That’s why the CDC still refuses to do vaccinated vs unvaccinated studies. This study is comparing different groups who all received the DTaP. Pure garbage!
eeeaten (21 hours ago)
+Jasryl6 your information is out of date - it's from 2013 where there was concern some strains (known as pertactin-deficient) were infecting pertussis-vaccinated people, as the vaccine reduced circulation of other strains - ie genetic changes in the bacteria were making it more effective in infecting vaccinated people. further study has been done (eg http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/137/5/e20153973) that shows "that the current acellular vaccines continue to be effective in the setting of high pertactin-deficient B pertussis prevalence, and therefore remain the best way to protect against severe disease."
Jasryl6 (1 day ago)
+eeeaten We aren't protecting them. This is straight from a BSC meeting. Not only is DTaP responsible for a new, more resistant strain of Pertussis, the current vaccine doesn't protect against that strain. Worse than that, vaccinated children are at far greater risk for it. As far as herd immunity? Increases in Pertussis are due to the fact that the vaccine protection wears off. This is why they are adding another MMR booster. These shots don't last. Works out great for the manufacturers who will just keep pushing more and more boosters. Ruth Berkelman chair CDC's Board of Scientific Counselors for Infectious Diseases. 2013 BSC meeting, the recent resurgence in pertussis cases has been associated with waning immunity over time in persons who received the acellular pertussis vaccine (which is administered as the pertussis component of DTaP vaccine). However, a recent study suggests another explanation for decreased vaccine effectiveness: an increase in Bordetella pertussis isolates that lack pertactin (PRN)—a key antigen component of the acellular pertussis vaccine. A study that screened B. pertussis strains isolated between 1935 and 2012 for gene insertions that prevent production of PRN found significant increases in PRN-deficient isolates throughout the United States. 2 The earliest PRN-deficient strain was isolated in 1994; by 2012, the percentage of PRN-deficient isolates was more than 50%. 3 Pawloski LC, Queenan AM, Cassiday PK, et al. Prevalence and molecular characterization of pertactin-deficient Bordetella pertussisin the United States. Clin Vaccine Immunol 2014;21(2):119-25. To assess the clinical significance of these findings, CDC used an IgG anti-PRN ELISA and other assays (PCR amplification, sequencing, and Western blots) to characterize 752 B. pertussis strains isolated in 2012 from six Enhanced Pertussis Surveillance Sites and from epidemics in Washington and Vermont. Findings indicated that 85% of the isolates were PRN-deficient and vaccinated patients had significantly higher odds than unvaccinated patients of being infected with PRN-deficient strains. Moreover, when patients with up-to-date DTaP vaccinations were compared to unvaccinated patients, the odds of being infected with PRN-deficient strains increased, suggesting that PRN -bacteria may have a selective advantage in infecting DTaP-vaccinaed persons.

The problem is: parents see everyone being diagnosed with incurable autoimmune disorders and fear tinkering with their kids’ immune system will result in a life of dependency. In nature we r generally exposed to one terrible disease at a time as it goes ‘round the village; maybe vaccine schedules should reflect that and be spaced out better.

This is what media does, brainwashing people and is doing a good job. This man is a clown. He forgot to mention that you can't sue if something goes wrong. Regan give protection to the vaccine manufacturer company signed this act called National Vaccine Injury Act 1986. Can you believe a putting a product in your body and if something happens nobody can respond you?? Kids are having other problems from vaccines, if you don't believe me look from the vaccine injury table. This is a compensation program the government has for vaccines injured people. www.hrsa.gov

The missing piece to the vaccine/autism correlation in Oliver's argument, which has been admitted by the CDC and is known by many pediatricians, is that a high fever occurring during a time of delicate and critical brain growth (12-24 months) may disrupt healthy brain growth. It is this unfortunate timing of the fever, not the vaccine, that nudges, averts, or completely derails normal brain growth, presenting what is a wide spectrum of learning disorders known as autism. It's that simple.
Sabirah Shuaybi (6 days ago)
No that is completely delusional. There is a genetic predisposition for some kids to have an inability to rid their bodies of the toxins in vaccines. But, we are unnecessarily introducing those toxins. The part that can contribute to autism is that some heavy metals and other compounds, like foreign proteins, interfere with neuron growth. Vaccines also interefere with the immune system, in a negative way, as would a poison do. Some of this interference can last months, if not years. There are cases of autism (or what would look like autism) that were significantly improved, if not neutralized, by removing certain irritants from the diet, including gluten, that can cause inflammation in the guts, where a significant part of the immune sytem resides.

I’m pro vaccine but hate getting them because I have a form of aichmophobia (fear of sharp objects). I manage it very well since it,s not very severe but every time I have to get a shot (which is like once a year but still) I get a full on panic attack and sometimes even faint. But I still value getting vaccinated because otherwise I’d probably just DIE! (Jk, but kinda not?) And a couple of months ago I was due to get a shot (I think it was for tetanus). Your parents can sign something at my school where they choose to let you get vaccinated in the school (by an actual doctor who the school sort of hires?? Idk really but the point is a doctor comes to the school and all the kids who’s parents don’t feel like going to the doctor can get their shots there). I was freaking out all day and when my class got called to get vaccinated I got, you guessed it, a panic attack! So while I’m freaking the f*ck out a woman shows up who I recognise as the mom of one of my friends and starts yelling at one of my teachers. I can’t really hear their conversation but I do hear something about “blablabla, forcing her, blablabla, illegal, blablabla, autism, blablabla, a lawsuit”. When suddenly she sees ME and walks over to me and ask me in this baby-voice you’d use on a pet or toddler “Are they also forcing you to do this” I was confused and still couldn’t think straight because of the panic attack so I just gave her this look like “wtf are you talking about?!” But apparently she took this as a yes and started yelling at my teacher (again) saying things like “How can you force this poor child to get that shot! Can’t you see how scared she is?!” My teacher (who knew about my aichmophobia and was absolutely done with this woman’s sh*t at this point) called some of the stronger built teachers (cuz we don’t have security at our school or something) who had to interrupt THEIR lessons that they where teaching at the moment, and had to literally DRAG this woman out of the school. Then my friend explained to me that she wanted to get the shot at school because she knew her mom would not allow her to get it but that her brother (who is anti-vaccine and a couple years older then us) told their mom that she was getting a shot so her mom left her work to tell her of. In the end she did get the shot (and I did too, and didn’t faint! Yay for me😏🎉!) And I just wanted to share this little cuz I’m bored and just wanted to show how stupid it is, and how easily it could have just been avoided if her mom actually did some research! Ok bye✌🏻💕

I do agree with trump about spreading the vaccines out over a longer period of time. I remember when I entered boot camp getting 5 shots at once (two in each arm and one in the ass) and holy fuck did I feel like shit the next day and that was as a healthy adult that already had full vaccines, I can only imagine how a baby with no immune system feels. Don't get me wrong they need to get them all, but limit the amount at one go. You don't need to give an infant 3 shots all at one go, most the time waiting a month for that third shot isn't going to be detrimental to the baby. And i'm talking like the hep shots that can be spaced out, keep the Tdap and the really important ones on their proper time line. (i'm using Hep A as an example cause it's a lot harder to get Help A because of how it's transmitted)
eeeaten (9 days ago)
babies are exposed to way more antigens as soon as they're born than they could ever get from vaccines. if you delay vaccines you're leaving kids vulnerable to harmful diseases for longer. if you find yourself agreeing with trump about something you should probably reconsider your position.

It sucks that even with all of the information we have now about vaccines (or anything really) people just don’t want to listen to it, preferring to assume incorrectly. According to my stepmother, my sisters don’t get vaccinated anymore because “there’s dead aborted babies in them” and “I can refuse on religious beliefs.” Okay Rebecca, tell me how well that’s going for you when you have three kids contract the flu because you’re spreading stupidity about vaccines.
Sean C (10 days ago)
Seems like old Donny doesn't understand immune systems or vaccinations any better than he understands anything else. But in his defense a sickening number of people, parents most significantly, are ignorant of how immune systems develop or grow. Our immune system does the bulk of it's developing from around 2 years old up to the onset of puberty, in the 12-14 year range. Early development is absolutely crucial; we can augment and/or boost an immune system once developed, but one that is undeveloped is a serious issue, as we have very little means by which to actually prompt said development later in life. The sad fact of the matter is, all the parents out there who are ridiculously over-protective, germ-panicked fools following their babies with purell and wet wipes, they're absolutely doing their children far more harm than good in the long run.....

+eeeaten I continue to find more and more studies showing there is a link. Take a look at this JAMA study from last year. https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamapediatrics/article-abstract/2587559 - This is a study where grant money from GSK and Merck was involved. So, of course, they are very careful with their wording. I know not to waste my time sending you studies that don't somehow involve industry funding. You still never told me what WOO stands for, by the way. Now, you have me curious. I tried searching WOO. Nothing turns up. Did you ever listen to the full 3 hours of the Dr. Thompson recordings? In it, he says that the CDC has confirmed that Thimerosal causes tics. I was wondering if you're still in the avoidance phase. Or, have you moved on to declaring the CDC's senior scientist is an anti-vaxxer? Findings  In a cohort study of 196 929 children, of whom 3103 had austism spectrum disorder, maternal influenza infection during pregnancy was not associated with increased autism risk. There was a suggestion of increased risk of autism spectrum disorders among children whose mothers received an influenza vaccination during their first trimester, but the association was statistically insignificant after adjusting for multiple comparisons, indicating that the finding could be due to chance. Meaning  Our findings do not call for vaccine policy or practice changes but do suggest the need for additional studies.

Correlation does not equal causation is such a basic term that is even common sense, believing that correlation equals causation puts you at a Alex Jones level of intelligence. Why? Because if I told you that ice cream sales has increased, and the Frog population had a sudden increase at the same time therefore ice cream sales= affect the birthrate of frogs, you most likely would be like "wtf that makes NO sense like how can you think that???" Or something of that nature. Correlation can make one research the two variables to see IF there is a cause. Me assuming that ice cream sales affects the frog population is a ASSUMPTION NOT FACT. Assumptions are dangerous, especially when it comes to health. ESPECIALLY the health of CHILDREN. You should assume that your child is going to get autism or something if you give them a vaccine just because the amount of people with autism has risen since the 90s and so has the use of vaccines. That's literally judging a book by its cover, which isn't that what you teach your child not to do? Don't assume what you'vee read is right either, maybe read up on how vaccines work, and the biology of a human and how vaccines help. Or at least just look at both sides. Your child's life is on the line, do more than a few minutes if research. These parents are so concerned with their children yet they don't listen to the professionals.

That's right everyone, don't you dare question big pharma and the CDC when it comes to any vaccine. If it's over medicating people, sure that's ok, but never a vaccine! Don't get your news from a comedy show.

+MDethfan wow that was quite the standard antivax rant. try asking questions one at a time and listening to the answers. vaccines experts 'question vaccines' all the time. vaccines in development are often rejected, and vaccines are subject to a large amount of testing for safety and effectiveness. "Do you honestly think that vaccines never injure or kill people" - no one claims that vaccines are 100% safe, just much safer than the diseases they prevent. vaccines don't cause autism. there are too many studies on this to count. vaccines don't cause allergies, asthma, diabetes, auto immune disorders, ADHD either. the amish do vaccinate and they do have autism. look it up. vaccines still don't cause autism. "We need to figure out if we are compromising immune systems" - it's been figured out. vaccines give your immune system the ability to fight off extra diseases. "What did the 1986 law 'National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act' do" - it gave parents an avenue to follow if their kids were harmed by vaccines. the money all comes from vaccine profits. the act also enables the united states to have a reliable vaccine supply. don't trust big pharma - i don't. their motivation is money. a part of that means that their products need to be safe we won't buy them if they're not, so when they're making their products safe they're looking after their income. if we don't trust them (we don't), then where do you get your information on vaccines? from 'alternative health' snake oil salesmen? or from scientists and doctors who study vaccines?

I research doctors, experts and true investigative journalists on both sides of the subject. You would be surprised how many so called, 'never question a vaccine' expert types there are who just parrot what they hear. The devil is in the details and lack of proper long term research is blatant. Where is the vaxxed vs unvaxxed studies? Have you seen how some of these vaccines are fast tracked without proper testing? Then you can start listening to the thousands upon thousands of interviews with parents who have witnessed vaccine injuries take place in their children, providing video evidence of behavior before and right after. There is definitely something there! Even if somehow half were lying, which is a crazy thought, the evidence is still overwhelming. Some injuries have been fatal in less than a day. Do you honestly think that vaccines never injure or kill people like medication and medical malpractice do all the time? We go from 1 in 5000 in 1978 to 1 in 40 today, and that's just ASD. 1 in 6 children have a developmental disability today. Kids have all type of issues that were once either uncommon, very rare or unheard of now. Extremely high rates of allergies, asthma, diabetes, auto immune disorders, ADHD etc. We need to figure out if we are compromising immune systems long term by unnaturally shocking them so young. Look at the Amish, zero autism cases. What did the 1986 law 'National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act' do and how did that ramp up vaccines like crazy afterwards? I could go on for pages but lastly I will say, whether it's medication or vaccines, big pharma is not your friend in a crony capitalist economy. We are at 72 recommended doses from birth to 18. How many more vaccines are in the pipeline? When does it become overkill?

I've never been afraid of vaccines giving kids autism.That was never a reason I wanted to get one vaccine at a time or wait to go get one. I just have lived in a low income area with a hospital meant for the "lower class" which has a higher rate of complications especially for rushed vaccines. Swine flu vaccine complications were a serious issue because the disease wasnt weakened enough in some of the vaccines distributed during the rush to push it out & one mandatory vaccine for middle schoolers sterilized a handful of people. I want to know which vaccine has a complication if it happens, so I wait to see if theres a reaction. When theres a immediate risk I go to a "upper class" areas hospital to get vaccinated because let's be real all care isn't equal. I'm not talking waiting a year either, I'm talking a few days or a week people. I dont have children, but I will vaccinate if or when I get them. I'm just gunna check the hospitals record of incidents before and go to the best hospital vaccines.

My son was 100% not vaccinated. I’m pro vac dad isn’t, he ended up with Aspergers Syndrome or “high functioning” and his dad is still in denial. Now he’s 5 so it’s just frustrating. I can’t keep a pediatrician bc him not being vaccinated for so long is “high risk”. It’s scary overall he’s always sick, I could go to jail without dads permission without his consent for vaccines.

I'm not a conspiracy theorist, but I don't vaccinate. Maybe I'll regret it one day, but I don't see the need because I don't get sick. Aside from Chiken Pox when I was a kid, I've actually never been sick... Also, I'm vegan of 22 years and work out.

If I told you "I don't wear a seat belt. Maybe I'll regret it one day, but I don't see the need because I've never gotten in a car accident." What would you say to me? How about this one: "I don't use condoms. Maybe I'll regret it one day, but I don't see the need because I've never gotten someone pregnant." This kind of logic is fundamentally flawed. Don't ever use it. If you ever have children PLEASE get them vaccinated. They could DIE from the diseases they're being protected against. That said, please don't listen to this BTW guy above me. I don't know what his deal is. I hope you have a wonderful day!

Another factoid by Oliver that isnt full disclosure -- Pediatricians are paid $400 per child under the age fo 2 when 63% of their patients adhere to the CDC schedule. That's the only reason why pediatricians recommend the CDC schedule!!!! https://youtu.be/7VG_s2PCH_c?t=1019

+Ava Levesque it's a nice little article you posted, especially for a cartoon character, but it is bribery and it does influence pediatricians just like Pharmaceutical companies bribing office staff and buying lunches and sending doctors to concerts. It is still Bribery or payouts. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1N5ePF6XPR5LmLGTjiBMpD5JfFJAm6JYJ68OyV5GJySw/edit?usp=drivesdk
