Every medical procedure has its risks, vaccines included. As the number of vaccines recommended continues to increase, so do the adverse events. Many doctors refuse to acknowledge or identify common adverse events. Parents are often dismissed and told that the vaccine is not responsible for the reaction. The parents continue to vaccinate their children not understanding that their children are in danger and are vulnerable to vaccine injury. With each shot, the child suffers additional insult and eventually, the child may end up with permanent vaccine neurological damage.
When Congress passed the Vaccine Assistant Act in 1965, they began to protect the vaccine manufactures from all liability. In 1991 the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System was founded in Washington where the government keeps track of the adverse events reported. Before 1991, there was no place to report adverse events even though we had been vaccinating since the 1930’s.
In 1986, the National Vaccination Compensation System was set up to compensate the families of injured children. By 1991, they settled over 1.2 Billion in injury/death lawsuits filed.
