The Dirty, Filthy Unvaccinated

“Your children can’t go to school with other children.”

“Keep your dirty filthy kids away from my kids.”

“We will not be providing medical care for children like yours any longer. Please seek medical care elsewhere.”

“You don’t deserve to be a parent. You should be in jail for child abuse.”

“I hope your children prove you wrong by dying.”

“Don’t you love your kids?”

These are some of the comments parents have told me they’ve received from people in their lives: doctors, schools, co-workers, friends, and family members.

We are the parents of unvaccinated children.

My children were born this way: Vaccine-free.

And I want to keep them that way. I do not want to inject drugs into them before they can walk and talk- at 12 hours old; before I even know who they are.

Are my children dirty? Are they walking germ-pools?

Are people with black skin dirty? Are homosexuals walking germ-pools, infecting us all with AIDs?

Of course not! These are stigmas- negative and unfair beliefs- that come from fear, misunderstanding, discrimination and inaccurate teachings. At one point in time, they are stigmas that much of society held. But just because the majority of society believes something doesn’t make it true.

Unvaccinated children are not walking around spreading disease simply because they’re unvaccinated. Our children are not dirty, and they are not a danger to society.

all truth

Is it extreme to say that unvaccinated children (or their parents) are facing discrimination?

Not if things keep going the way they’re headed.

For example, watch this short video of what happened to one mom who refused to give her daughter Risperdal, an anti-psychotic medication.

Maryanne Godboldo wanted to stop giving her daughter Risperdal after it worsened her daughter’s symptoms.

The kicker?

Maryanne’s daughter was a normally-developing child before she had her vaccines at age 11 to “catch-up” so that she could attend public school. Maryanne’s daughter, Ariana, was given Risperdal to treat the symptoms she developed following her shots. Another doctor who saw Ariana later diagnosed her with encephalitis (brain inflammation or swelling) caused by her vaccines.

Maryanne was imprisoned and her child was taken away for 9 months. As recently as March 2014, Maryanne Godboldo was still fighting the case in court, and Wayne County prosecutors said they will appeal yet again.

This mom is a hero.

Those of us who don’t vaccinate have heard it all before.

This is what we are told: “We don’t need to discuss vaccines. Just make your decision and move on. Lucky for you, we live in a free country so you can choose not to vaccinate. You have that right.”

Do we?

We have been publicly shamed.

We have lost our careers.

We have been refused medical care.

We have been refused education.

Maryanne lost her child for 9 months. And she is not the only one.

This is where we are.

Read any article about vaccines and you’ll get an idea of the war that is going on against parents who are making the choices they feel are best for their children.

For example, here’s a lovely comment left on one of my previous blog posts:

It’s such a shame people can’t be jailed for spreading false information that misleads and kills -If one could, the author would be in jail before any drug company ceo. And should be rightly so .

You think so, America?

Here are some other fun comments that parents who choose not to vaccinate get to deal with, both online and in person:

quotes2Child abuser.

Baby killer.

Wack-a-loon.

Fool.

Is it true?

Unvaccinated children are being blamed for outbreaks. Parents who vaccinate their children are being told to ask a child’s vaccination status before they play. They’re told that an unvaccinated child is dangerous and that they should be able to “exercise their rights” against the parents of the unvaccinated child if their vaccinated child gets sick.

But how true is it that unvaccinated children are causing disease outbreaks?

Let’s look at the facts.

  • The pertussis (whooping cough) vaccine does not prevent the spread of whooping cough. According to a 2013 study on baboons, those who are vaccinated can still harbor the bacteria in their throats (with or without symptoms) and spread it to others. If an unvaccinated child has pertussis, they’re going to know it and they’re going to stay away from newborns. If a vaccinated child or adult has pertussis, they may have only mild cold-like symptoms or no symptoms at all. A vaccinated child or adult can hug and kiss a newborn and spread pertussis without even realizing it.

  • Pertussis is mutating and new strains do not match the strains in the vaccine.

  • Those who are vaccinated against pertussis have a 40-fold increase in lung colonization of parapertussis, which also causes whooping cough. There is no vaccine for parapertussis.

  • Immunity against measles begins to wane quickly (after 6 months) even after 2 doses of MMR vaccine. The same is true for mumps and rubella. (Click here to read more about herd immunity and the MMR for measles, click here for mumps, and click here for rubella).

  • Those who are vaccinated against measles can still potentially and unknowingly become infected and spread the virus without even getting sick.

  • We don’t know how long immunity lasts with the polio vaccine (which is not a regularly recommended booster for adults). The CDC says, “The duration of immunity with IPV (inactivated polio vaccine) is not known with certainty, although it probably provides protection for many years after a complete series”.

  • Among adults in the U.S., vaccination rates are low.

  • Among children in the U.S., vaccination rates are stable or increasing.

Let’s look at these last two points closer:

According to the CDC, most adults are not up to date on their shots.

Tetanus: 64.2% of adults aged 19-49 years, 63.5% of adults aged 50-64 years and 55.1% of adults aged 65+ years are up to date on their tetanus vaccine.

Pertussis/whooping cough: 14.2% of all adults over the age of 19 are up to date on their whooping cough vaccine. For adults aged 19-64 years of age living with infants under the age of 1, this number is slightly higher: 25.9%. Only 31.4% of health-care personnel over age 19 are up to date.

Hepatitis A: 12.2% of adults aged 19-49 years old are up to date on their hepatitis A vaccine.

Hepatitis B: 35.3% of adults aged 19-49 years are up to date on their hepatitis B vaccine.

Let’s compare those rates with vaccination rates in children aged 19-35 months old for 2012-2013:

DTaP (diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis/whooping cough): 83.1% of children are up to date

Polio: 92.7% of children are up to date

MMR (measles, mumps and rubella): 91.9% of children are up to date

HIB (haemophilus influenza type B): 82% of children are up to date

Hepatitis B: 90.8% of children are up to date

Chickenpox: 91.2% of children are up to date

PCV (pneumococcal conjugate): 82% of children are up to date

The CDC notes that coverage remained stable from 2012 to 2013, except for hepatitis B and rotavirus vaccines, which saw an increase in vaccine coverage.

The CDC even stated:

No change was observed in the percentage of children who received no vaccinations.

It’s time to get rid of stigmas.

The mainstream media won’t report what has been going on in the vaccine world this month. Parents deserve to know about the study showing an increase of autism for African-American boys who are given the MMR. They deserve to know about the study linking fetal DNA in vaccines to autism that was also published this month.

To the media:

It is not your job to decide what YOU think we need to know. It is not your job to tell us what or how to think, or to report half of the story. It is your job to report the news, period.

To the schools:

Unless you’re ready to check the antibody levels of every single child AND adult in your school, you don’t have the right to force my child to stay home. Children may obtain exemptions in all 50 states and attend school unvaccinated if that is their choice. It is not your job to say who does and does not deserve to be educated. It is your job to educate, period.

To the doctors:

If you’re worried about an unvaccinated child who is being seen for a rash or a cough, have them come in before or after hours. This is what doctors have done for years and you can do it too. It’s ridiculous to pretend that by excluding a child who may or may not be sick you’re protecting the rest of your patients. Do you refuse to see a child who might have scarlet fever (aka strep throat) because they might give it to someone else in your waiting room? Do you kick out one of your patients who has a cold because a child in the waiting room might have asthma? You can advise parents to vaccinate if you wish but it is not your job to enforce what you think onto a parent (and refusing medical care to a child IS forcing what you think upon that family.) Advise away, but it is your job to provide individual medical care, period.

To friends and family:

We are not doing this to spite you, or to make you upset. Yes, we know that Andrew Wakefield’s study was discredited- we actually read the entire thing, not just a news article about it. Yes, we know you vaccinated your children and they’re just fine. Yes, we know that you’re worried my child will give your baby whooping cough, even though anyone you expose your baby to could be a potential carrier, vaccinated or not. We don’t choose to not vaccinate our children because we think we’re better parents than you. In fact, when it comes to making such important decisions for our children we aren’t thinking about you at all. We are thinking about the long-term health, safety and happiness of our children. It is not your job to raise our children, period.

No matter how much you disagree, vaccination IS a personal choice.

…into my baby’s body.

I get to decide what to put or not put into my child. The law agrees with me. And I will continue to fight to protect that choice.

Whether you vaccinate or not, whether you’re white or black, whether you’re Christian or Muslim or an atheist, if you see someone treating another human being like they don’t deserve the same rights that you have, speak up.

I know what it feels like to be ridiculed, to be called ignorant, to say things like in a conspiracy theorist or that I am well versed in my Google U degree of research. Even from “family”. Thank you for putting it out there! We do not deserve to be discriminated against! Our children were born this way! 😉

      • Well, if your kids are vaccinated and if those vaccines worked, then what’s the big deal? Also, the fact that you think your kids are going to get sick from our kids who are not vaccinated makes me think there is something in your syche that knows and doubts vaccines actually do what they claim to do.

        As for “herd immunity”, look at the numbers of the adults, the majority of the population, that aren’t current. Herd immunity requires at least 75% for some diseases and up to 95% for others.

  2. Thank you, thank you, thank you for this powerful information.

    After being bullied and threatened with the “your baby will die”, I caved to the pressure and allowed my newborn to be given the Hep B vax three days after birth. I vowed at that moment to become educated and NEVER make another decision based in fear. It took almost a year to feel informed well enough to never vaccinate her again and to come to peace with my decision. We were “released” from our initial pediatrician after the first six months of her life but it became clear very quickly that staying out of the doctor’s office was the best action for her health. Eight years later I have two very healthy, unvaccinated children who simply do not get sick. We see the pediatrician every couple of years to keep the gov’t at bay….but it will be a cold day in hell before another vaccine comes near either of them.

    • I have 3 kids, my oldest was vaccinated normally, my middle only got baby shots, and my youngest only got the first round. Had I known what I know now I would not have done it period. I homeschool, which is why the younger 2 didn’t get as many. Im worried about the potential damage it has done to them. Are there any published studies that show how much time it takes for the body to rid itself from the heavy metals and other such preservatives? I would like to think that my 4 year old, my youngest, is only minimally effected and she is already free of these toxins.

  3. Thank you for this post. I have not been super vocal about our family’s choices regarding vaccines. As I have children with varying degrees of vaccinations, (One is fully up todate, and the newest one is Vax free) So it’s a tricky subject for us. I am curious though, about Mississippi’s laws regarding exemptions…I’ve heard it’s next to impossible for even very immune-compromised individuals to get vaccine exemptions there. I didn’t see any sources for the “all 50 states have exemptions” can you cite something for me? Thanks!

      • I am a nurse as well. Getting berated online by faceless people spewing hatred is one thing, but its another thing when co-workers and superiors do it. They tell you how stupid you are for believing the anti vax rhetoric, especially because you hold a bachelors degree in nursing and should know better. Then, they force you to get the flu shot every year, which makes you feel really bad (and expect you to show up for your shift), or you are subjected to wearing a mask during ‘flu season’ which is defined as Sept – April, anytime you step within 3 feet of patients. Many nurses may have reservations but get it anyway because the mask really hampers how we perform. When they learned I was not going to conform, they bullied me with write-ups and other things until I quit. This whole ‘bullying parents for choosing not to vaccinate’ thing should be expanded to include nurses and other hospital staff as well. Medicine has taken such an ugly turn in America. It is more now than ever before, a business, rather than actually healing people. They constrain a diagnosis to hours to discharge, instead of taking patient history into account, such as keeping someone a little longer because they might not be recovering as fast…… just so they can flip a bed.

  5. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS!!! Thank you for speaking TRUTH!!!!! I have a 15 month unvaccinated son and plan to keep him that way no matter what!!!! It took me almost two years to feel confident in my decision. Even immediately after birth I declined all vaccines and did so too at the pediatrician’s office. I just kept declining until I was CERTAIN and now I am. Vaccines are horribly dangerous and ineffective!!

  7. I made the educated decision to not vaccinate my children. Luckily, I have not encountered very much objection, maybe a handful of individuals over the last decade+. When I do, I don’t bother arguing back. You can never win an argument with someone who is dogmatic and is only repeating things they have been told by a supposed authority. I also do not necessarily blame them for their stupidity. We are all taught to take the word of doctors, our parents, teachers, etc as the end all be all. We are taught that questioning something is being a trouble maker. I believe that questioning is the only way to find the answers. So that is what I do. But not everyone does. I tend to feel sorry for these people, not angry at them.

  11. I wish parents of vaccinated children could explain to me why they are scared of my unvaccinated children. If they are already “immune” to these diseases, why are they afraid of my child? If anything, it should be the other way around. I know your child is carrying all of these diseases by way of vaccine. I also know that my child hasn’t been exposed. I should be terrified that your vaccinated kid is going to get my kid sick!

    I also love the point about bring adults into the contamination blame. Why are we calling children dirty and bullying them when adults spread just as much, if not more sickness and disease? Kids have school, sports, and friends. Adults go Everywhere and because of that are naturally at a higher risk of exposure. Why aren’t adult boosters being pushed like child vaccines? Oh yeah, it is easy to say “No” as an adult and not be criticized but god forbid you say no to protect your child from the same chemical you aren’t putting in your body!!! *note… Most vaccines are the same dosage for children and adults. Do you think their tiny body’s can handle something that is also made to protect a full grown adult?

    • Honestly, I do worry about making un-vaccinated children sick. And until my kids have gotten all their kindergarten shots, I also worry about my children getting sick as well. I had the privilege of knowing my great grandmother until I was 10, and she lived to be over a hundred, and she was very pro-vaccines. I understand why so many parents choose to forgo vaccinating their children, but I also know why I do so, and it has a lot to do with my great-grandmother’s memories of her childhood, and raising a child in the 40s and 50s.

      I think parenting is a hard, it seems to be a roll of the dice anyway you cut it. It is a choice to not do so, as well as a choice to have my children wait to have playmates that are un-vaccinated until they fully are. My husband and I are the full grown adults that go down to the health dept to get our shots updated. That’s because I caught scarlet fever at 19 and it wasn’t much fun. The only vaccine I cannot take are the flu shot and the hep b series, because I have reactions to both. I choose to have both of my children’s vaccines spread out as a result, and we normally don’t do the flu shot.

      It’s nothing personal when I decline play dates with friend’s children that aren’t vaccinated, I’m just doing the best I can at raising my kids the same as they are. When my littles are all up to date, I’m not going to worry about it. It’s a choice, and it doesn’t make anyone a bad parent in my opinion.

Because they have strong immune systems that we keep healthy by encouraging them to eat healthy and providing them with additional vitamins.

      • Sadly, the older generation was victim to propaganda just as we are. Your grandmother lived that long without having childhood vaccines. My Grandmother lived to be 106 – without ever having a vaccine. She thought that were poison. So did my other grandmother who passed at 90. Both were not in any type of dementia either. Both were hardly ever sick. When I pressed my pro-fax mom about why she was it was solely based on the TV coverage at the time. She and my dad grew up the city of Detroit and were born around 1930. They never saw or knew of anyone with polio. My mom knew one girl whose mother did not care for her properly during measles and she did get encephalitis but recovered. Considering she went to a huge school in a city and everyone got measles…. well, I know the numbers do you? The point is even when it was not rare – it was. Please do keep your vaccinated kids away from unvaccinated ones for a least a month after their shots. As far as unvaccinated kids being a danger to your kids – your unvaccinated yet kids – that is pretty funny. Do you keep them away from each other too? Just food for thought. I have to say it does bother me to hear people say what you did. I know you mean well and said it respectfully but it is misinformed and I think if you really think about it – you will see it isn’t right or logical. Keep the sick kids away sure – unvaccinated does not mean sick. In fact they are much healthier as a whole than vaccinated children.

Now as an RMT and a better educated and informed mother I feel differently…about a lot of gealth misconceptions. I believe like religion it is each individuals choice to make. With all the new strains and super bugs out there… which were born out of vaccinations, isn’t it in time we embraced change and modified our thinking? I will not as a mother and human being allow society and the press make choices for my kids nor myself about is right for us. I believe through healthy choices, smart decision making and some common sense we can prevent ourselves from catching many of the viruses/bacterial diseases out there. Forget the hype that is crammed down our throats when things like the flu vaccine are sensationalized as a must have, make your own informed decision and possibly help prevent these diseases from mutating, which is what happens when new vaccines are created. If everyone could stop judging for a moment and Respect others decisions, we would be a much healthier society. Thanks and much respect to those who stand up against the masses!

If adults really knew the truth of the reality of what is inside their bodies after being vaccinated there would be no harsh words of violence,and they would understand all that we parents have done to keep our children safe. Maybe they need to go online to NVIC and read about all the deaths of babies and older children that have happened because of the vaccines. I personally have seen a friend of mine lose her daughter shortly after she was vaccinated. Rather than judging those who make their own choices they should first find out the facts first and then decide. I never hear of the unvaccinated judging those who do make the decision to vaccinate.

How do you suppose people feel to be called stupid sheep for believing what medical professionals tell them? How do you suppose medical professionals feel when you say that we don’t know what we’re talking about when we recommend vaccines based on the evidence (not anecdotal “evidence”)? You are free to make that decision, but if a medical professional chooses not to see your child as a result, you are going to be mad about it? I have seen a few viral posts by pediatricians addressing this and it really is only partially about the risk you pose to other children in the practice. It is also about the fact that most of us healthcare professionals believe that vaccinations are sort of non-negotiables and that a clinician-patient relationship built on mutual respect is essential. Just find a physician that agrees with you (there are a few). The issue is that you are saying in this post and others that we are idiots who have bought into the pharmaceutical company snake-oil and aren’t smart enough to know it. If that is true, why would you want us taking care of your child anyway? If you won’t believe us about vaccines, what about when your child falls of the growth curve and we recommend testing and you don’t agree because everyone is a “late bloomer” in your family? What about when your child has unexplained hypertension and we want to check her kidneys but you think it isn’t significant? That is the issue here. It isn’t about paternalism, but we have to be able to have a discussion, and if you think your provider is an idiot for pandering vaccines, why would you trust anything they have to say? You cannot have a successful relationship with those barriers.
    This isn’t an argument about your evidence. I am as entrenched in my position as you are in yours and I respect patient autonomy, I just really think that a certain amount of the perceived persecution is unavoidable if you insist on seeing most Western-medicine practitioners.

  25. I don’t even know how I ended up right here, but I assumed this publish was once good. I do not realize who you are but definitely you are going to a well-known blogger in case you aren’t already 😉 Cheers!
