Our Son’s Story
The wedding was beautiful. My cousin made a lovely bride, and we were pleased to be invited guests. During the ceremony, we were shocked when our seven month old baby began developing red blotches over his smooth little face and body. Throughout the wedding and reception, our baby’s skin reaction became worse and worse, so we made the decision to take him to the emergency room. Nobody had a clue as to why his smooth skin developed chronic eczema right before our eyes, but the doctors were quick to send us out the door with a prescription for cortisone.
For months and years, we tried to figure out what happened and what would get rid of the eczema. We blamed our son’s milk, his foods, his clothes, and the laundry detergent. We took him to other doctors, including a dermatologist and three chiropractors. We began to do some research, and experiment with drastic diet changes. We also tried hundreds and hundreds of dollars of natural health products. Regardless of our sincere efforts, our little boy’s eczema persisted in the form of raw, itchy, and bleeding blotches, especially on his arms, legs and face.
In God’s perfect timing, and as an answer to prayer, we finally found the answers to our questions.
We learned WHY our son had eczema… With educated hindsight, the answer seems obvious. A few days before developing the rash, our baby received his third round of routine vaccinations. When we realized this connection, we began to seriously research the immunization issue. We soon became convinced that there was more to the story than we had been led to believe.
We also learned HOW to fix it… Three different people (a chiropractor, a nutritionist, and a family friend) recommended certain nutritional supplements. These products helped to strengthen our child’s immune system by giving him the essential nutrients he was lacking. Our bodies were created with the ability to heal themselves, given proper nutrition. After one month, the eczema was considerably improved and within two months, our little boy’s skin was as smooth as can be. His eczema was gone!
We are thankful that chronic eczema seems to have been the only side effect resulting from our first child’s vaccinations. Many other children have suffered very serious health problems, including autism and even death.(1)
We went into my second pregnancy with a different perspective on vaccination. During a pre-natal tour of the new hospital, the nurse in charge of the group told us that it was “the law” to have our babies vaccinated. I spoke up and said, “No, it isn’t.” She sheepishly said, “Well, you’re right, you don’t have to, but most people do.” Instead of signing papers to have our baby vaccinated, we had to sign to NOT vaccinate. We live in a province where infants receive routine injections when they are only six hours old!(2) We wonder about the reasons why New Brunswick was targeted for this experiment.
If we had planned to vaccinate our second son, he would have received his first rubella shot at one year – but guess what! Our second son developed rubella at about nine months of age. His symptoms were so mild, he didn’t even know he was sick! Now he has natural life-long immunity, without the side effects of vaccination.
A local homeschooling mother with three beautiful little daughters told me that she plans to not vaccinate her youngest since both of her older girls developed eczema from their shots.
There are also medical studies that link my personal health problems with the rubella vaccination I had when I was ten years old.(3) I have since taken a vaccine homeopathic to help remove some of the chemical toxins.
We were also quite surprised to discover that the following additives are among the ingredients in vaccinations: thimerosal (a mercury derivative), ethylene glycol (antifreeze), phenol (a disinfectant dye), benzethonium chloride (a disinfectant), formaldehyde (a preservative and disinfectant), and aluminum.(4)
We strongly recommend that you examine the studies that link Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (crib death or cot death) to vaccination. Read the books, Vaccination – 100 Years of Orthodox Research by Viera Scheibner, Ph.D. and A Shot in the Dark by Harris L. Coulter and Barbara Loe Fisher.
If you believe in vaccination, partial vaccination, or delayed vaccination, PLEASE watch this video. As parents, you have the responsibility to learn the truth about vaccination. It is SHOCKING!

Making the decision not to vaccinate our children is like swimming against the tide. Our purpose in sharing this information is because we wish we had known the other side of the story before our first child was born. We want you to have the information you need to make an informed decision, regardless of what you choose for your children.
Breastfeeding is the most important immunization you can give your child.(5) When solids are introduced, a growing child needs proper nutrition to promote a healthy immune system. The foods we have available are not always what our bodies need. In an effort to help our children have healthy minds and healthy bodies, we believe it is important to add certain food supplements to their diets. These include essential (good) sugars, phytonutrients, and essential oils. This has certainly been working because our four children rarely have a cold and not one of them has ever been on an antibiotic. Please contact us for more information.

Vaccination Refusal Form
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 clinically fully immunized and that the manufacturers of the vaccines do not guarantee 100% efficacy. I am also aware that VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System) documented cases of over 54,000 adverse reactions from vaccines in a 20-month period. The National Vaccine Injury Fund, created in 1986 to compensate those damaged by vaccines has paid out over one billion dollars in compensation to date.
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 is available.
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 alone.8
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 DaPT.
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 study10 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 week.13
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 phosphate.15
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.
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 pertussis.
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
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 adulthood.28
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 contracts 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 Syndrome.34
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
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
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, teething, 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, monisodium 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 (hand washing) and proper sanitation 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 vertigo.46
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.49
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. I understand 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 developing 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 diphtheria toxoid.51
Possible side effects and complications from the vaccine include: erythema, induration, tenderness, interference of limb movement, inflammation, 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
