Health Tips - Vaccines and Children

 
Vaccines and Children

In 1988, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services set up the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program to pay damages to individuals and families of individuals injured by specific childhood vaccines.

In 2007 the list included vaccines against diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis (whooping cough), measles, mumps, rubella (German measles), polio, hepatitis B, varicella (chicken pox), Haemophilus influenzae type b, rotavirus and pneumonia.

From 1988 until January 8, 2008, 5,263 claims relating to autism and 2,865 non-autism claims were made to the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. Of these, 925 lawsuits were awarded compensation, 1 of these autism-related. Awards including attorney’s fees totaled $847 million.

The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program also applies to claims for injuries suffered before 1988. There were 4,264 of these claims. Of these, 1,189 were paid off with awards totaling $903 million.

On February 18, 2009, the federal “Vaccine Court” awarded the parents of 10-year-old Bailey Banks a lump sum of more than $810,000 plus an estimated $30-40,000 per year for services and care. This was to compensate for damages resulting from the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine. The Court ruled that the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine had caused acute brain damage that led to his autism spectrum disorder.

The total amount awarded for vaccine-injury to children is running around $1.75 billion so far. These damages are being paid by a 75-cent tax on every vaccine sold and not by the vaccine manufacturers themselves, in effect making the public pay for the damages.

While the media continues to forward the vaccine corporations’ line that vaccines are safe, the federal Vaccine Court has acknowledged the serious risks involved with their use.

Regarding the Bailey Banks decision, mainstream media have presented a wall of silence. They join the group of medical doctors and vaccine manufacturers in failing to provide parents critical information regarding the damaging effects of vaccines on children. This group is denying parents and children “informed consent”, as they are failing to let parents know the full repercussions of vaccines.
