Not forgeting vaccines are drugs, and like any drug hold risks of side effects - but uinlike many drugs, for vaccines these risks include permanent
brain damage and death, particularly for infants and the elderly.
According to the American federal Vaccine Adverse Reactions (VAERS) database, the flu vaccine causes the most deaths and hospitalisations, seconded
by the DTaP.
Most diseases had already declined by 90 or more percent before the introduction of widespread vaccination programs. The data shows that when these
programs started, diseases stopped declining, some continued declining only more slowly, and some had thier incidence rate increase. For example, the
mortality rate for measles is now 20 times higher than it was before it became a 'mandatory' vaccination.
Basically, vaccinations don't offer significant protection - some work by simply giving you the disease (particularly the flu, which btw only
contains a best-guess at which strains may or may not be coming your way), all have non-trivial risks of side effects, all keep incidence of disease
in a population, and allow it increased opoprtunity to mutate.
Why are they so popular then?
Follow the money.
