You only have to look at child mortality before mass vaccination and after to get the figures you want. It is utterly undeniable that vaccination has
helped more people survive into adulthood and beyond, even if a very small minority have a reaction.
Stumason, your Infant mortality point got me digging again, and so I present the following US data on the matter. As I have said before correlation is
not causation, but, it is points worth rationally considering, and digging deeper into.
America by far is the most vaccinated country. Here is our Infant through 6 years vaccine
Infant mortality should be almost nonexistent, aside from infanticide and accidents, however, we rated #46* last year and #48* in 2012. Source:

*Note. The listing on the site is reversed from greatest to least morbidity. I inversed it for the sake of this post (222-174 = 48).
Infants in 47 other countries of the world stand a better chance of survival to age 1 than ours do.
This is concerning because in 2006 we were #41. Source: Infant Mortality: UNICEF

What will be interesting is what will be found when I research the other countries Vaccination policies. I have not done this yet.
Another point I think needs to be brought out is pediatrician’s morbidity catch all of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).
An estimated 10,000 American babies
mysteriously die each year with SIDS diagnosis. Before mass
vaccinations, the term didn’t exist, and crib deaths were few and far between. My Generalization from Source Book: Mendelsohn R, MD How To Raise A
Healthy Child In Spite of Your Doctor, Ballantine New York 1984.
Viera Scheibner is the real expert on SIDS. Her life’s work shows an unmistakable correlation with vaccines. Source Book: Scheibner, V PhD
Vaccination: The Medical Assault on the Immune System, Australian Print Group 1993.
"SIDS is the leading cause of death among infants aged 1–12 months." This is also the time the bulk of vaccines are given (possible correlation
see (d) JAPAN
). And reference vaccine Schedule above. "Although the
overall rate of SIDS in the United States has declined by more than 50% since 1990, rates for non-Hispanic black and American Indian/Alaska Native
infants remain disproportionately higher than the rest of the population. Reducing the risk of SIDS remains an important public health priority."
The reduction in SIDS since the 1990s could be argued to be attributed to the reduction of exposure to mercury as a preservative in childhood
. Or, simply better education and
parents putting babies on their backs to sleep until they can roll and have control of their head as proposed
Again, correlation, but, one worth legitimately looking into. It will be interesting to see if those higher on the list have lesser incidence of SIDS.
And if so, what their vaccine policy is.
I like the morbidity number base because like birth, all death is recorded. It’s a good data set that I can overlay other incidences on to find
correlations and trends. Everyone want to find the smoking causal gun… but, I’ll settle for a handful of corollaries to continue molding the
hp1229 you raise some other good questions that have the noggin going. Yes, there are multiple manufacturers, GlaxoSmithKline and Merck come to mind.
Vaccine formulations are proprietary much like Coca Cola, but a generalized summary of ingredients can be found
And yes, there have been bad batches of vaccines given out and then recalled with adverse reactions being reported.
