Vaccine alert: Don’t be tricked by this deceptive new ‘study’
And the media moles bought it hook, line and sinker.
You probably saw some of the news coverage — it was everywhere.
Stories with headlines that said “Large study confirms that childhood vaccinations are safe.” Or this one from USA Today: “Study finds vaccine side effects extremely rare.”
This latest “research” is meant to “give parents some reassurance,” and counter all that “misinformation out there about vaccines” said the authors.
But even they couldn’t hide all of the facts.
And that’s how I discovered the shocking truth about the “study” that’s behind all the headlines.
Big Pharma knows its vaccination ship is sinking. And it’s doing whatever it can to try and keep it afloat.
That’s because more and more parents are questioning the safety of these shots.
And what was just published in the journal Pediatrics is a brazen attempt to turn things around for vaccine makers. But when you look at the real story, suddenly what these people are saying holds about as much water as a leaky bucket.
The researchers set out to “reassure” parents on the safety of vaccines, as that’s “critical for population health.” And to do that, they pulled data from published studies, vaccine makers, the CDC and reports by other federal agencies.
And their conclusion, the one that made all the headlines, is that “vaccines are very safe.”
But hold on. There are some tidbits here that throw that conclusion right out the window.
To begin with these researchers started with 20,000 studies, but only used 67 for their report. Talk about cherry-picking your data!
But here’s what makes the whole thing a joke. And if it weren’t so serious we could all have a good laugh over it.
They omitted all the reports sent to VAERS — the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System!
Are you kidding me? These researchers are doing a study on vaccine safety and they don’t even bother to include reports of vaccine side effects sent into this federal program!
VAERS was set up, and is run by the CDC and FDA, to collect data about adverse reactions from vaccines. Also, vaccine manufacturers, by law, must report any side effects they are aware of to VAERS.
The program receives over 30,000 reports annually. And it says that 13 percent of those are “serious.” Things like disability, life-threatening illness…and death. Since it started collecting data in 1990, it’s received over 200,000 such reports.
And magically, none of those reports made it into this “study.”

But the researchers wanted to make sure it looked like they were doing their job. That is if you don’t look too far.
So they included a brief mention of what they called “rare but actual side effects.” Things like the MMR shot causing seizures, or the flu vaccine causing diarrhea, or the rotavirus vaccine giving some kids a serious bowel disorder.
Well that’s certainly “reassuring!”
But here’s the icing on the cake — and it will explain a lot.
Nine out of 10 of the authors of this study come from the RAND Corporation. That’s the mostly federally funded “think tank” that produces “official” studies to support its sponsors.
And two big RAND “clients” are GlaxoSmithKline and Merck.
Unfortunately that news won’t make it into the headlines. Because if it did, those headlines would read something like this:
“Study sponsored by Big Pharma claims its vaccines are safe. Ignores over 200,000 reports of adverse effects.”
And if it said that, I doubt we ever would have seen the story.
