Vaccine products are a contentious topic in our current society, with everyone having a steadfast opinion on whether they are for it or against it. While neither are side will budge on their stance, it makes it all the more difficult for an average person to get an unbiased and helpful outlook towards vaccine products when they are on the fence on whether to get vaccinated, whether it’s for themselves or their children.
Many schools, as well as countries, are making it compulsory that individuals receive Vaccine products at regular intervals for protection against various miscellaneous diseases and infections. Many people, however, are still apprehensive about vaccination.
Before you allow your doctor to inject a concoction of chemicals into their body their bloodstreams you should be aware of the pros and cons of the vaccines otherwise vaccines can be very frightening.
They don’t wish to opt for vaccination without receiving ample information about what these chemicals constitute and whether or not they can have harmful side effects.
What is a Vaccine?
Before we delve further into this, let’s have a quick refresher on what a Vaccine is.
In short, Vaccines are a concoction of biological chemicals that help your body’s immune system to fight off diseases by injecting into your bloodstreams, weakened agents that resemble the infection. In turn, teaches your immune system on how to recognize these potentially harmful micro-organisms and how to effectively counter them.
These agents activate the immune system of our body, causing it to identify them as a threat. This further propels it to destroy them and remember their structure so that all future attacks can be prevented.
Vaccine products are generally of two kinds: prophylactic or therapeutic
The former prevents the effects of a future infection while the latter is used mostly for existing injections. As of now, the World Health Organisation recognizes that licensed Vaccine products are available for up to 25 separate infectious diseases including the likes of Smallpox, Tetanus, HPV, Influenza, Measles and Chicken Pox.
With a general idea of what vaccine products are, it is only natural to be apprehensive of the various substances that constitute it. The concept of injecting yourselves or your loved ones with disease-causing bacteria and other chemicals might seem rather frightening.
Side Effects of Vaccinating
The presence of heavy metals in Vaccine products such as Mercury and Aluminium can be harmful in some instances as has been researched. Most Flu Vaccines contain a chemical called Thimerosal which contains mercury, and while it is generally used to preserve the shelf like of medicine, mercury on its own is somewhat toxic to humans.
On the other hand, Aluminium is a metal favorite for its use in building Motor Vehicles and Aeroplanes, and the very thought of injecting the same metal into your body can be frightening.
There is also the factor of those pesky allergies that we Humans are prone to having or developing. In many cases, individuals can have allergic reactions when it comes to certain types of Vaccine products. These can range from minor rashes to even severe cases which might render you hospitalized or also prove fatal.
The presence of metals and compounds that is gelatinous or similar to egg protein. Hence, in such cases, patients who have a pre-existing allergy when it comes to Eggs and Jelly, it is generally advised that such individuals refrain from getting vaccinated as the risks could outweigh any potential positives.
Another glaring issue that is recognized by medical authorities the world over when it comes to Vaccines and their creation and deployment in developing countries. The entire process that goes into the development of vaccine products aren’t exactly cheap and medical, and big pharma companies are dictated by one key factor above all else and that are profits that they make by selling their products.
The deployment of vaccines is another major issue in developing countries where means of transport aren’t available to all remote areas. Even if some corners are cut in any of the stages, it could have potentially drastic consequences on the lives of individuals treated with these Vaccine products.
Then, of course, there are issues which can arise from the improper administration of Vaccine products. Unsanitary operation of needles, inadequate dosage, and wrong administering techniques can create severe problems for the individual undertaking the Vaccine.
Needles used for administering vaccine products are strictly meant to be one-time use and are supposed to be disposed of immediately once you use it. However, an oversight on the part of the Nurse or medical professional who administered the vaccine or re-using the needle can create some severe complications for the unfortunate victim.
Diseases such as HIV, Hepatitis, Tetanus are all plausible infections that can be transmitted from one person to another via the needle in extreme cases.
Also, an improper technique on the part of the Nurse can lead to severe muscle injuries if the needle inserts in a wrong area. SIRVA or ‘Shoulder Injury Related to Vaccine Administration’ is a medical condition in which patients experience pain in the shoulder area due to incorrect administration of the vaccination. Usually, the vaccination is given to the deltoid muscle.
However, in some instances, the injection is given to the shoulder bone, and this results in an immune response, ultimately leading to inflammation of the joint.
Within 24-48 hours of administering the vaccine, patients start to develop symptoms. These range from deltoid bursitis to tendonitis, impingement syndrome, and shoulder bursitis.
Can you Trust Big Pharmaceutical Companies?
There is just something about the Big Pharma companies that make them sound diabolical, run by megalomaniacs intent on world domination. That is generally a trope that you commonly see in Sci-Fi thrillers, but in a startling case of life imitating art, the trope may not be far off from what we face in our daily lives.
Whether it’s the Opioid crisis that grips parts of the world to heads such as Martin Shkreli essentially condemning patients to death by increasing the price of a lifesaving drug to $750 per pill, the industry as a whole hasn’t had the best time when it comes to PR.
It isn’t helped by the bureaucracy, buying influence in the world’s governments and pursuing every possible loophole in the law to avoid holding any accountability whatsoever if anything goes wrong.
Whether its falsifying test results to receive approval, off-label promotions, kickbacks or propagating false statements and narratives, the industry has been accused of all of that and possibly more in just the last decade with over $10 billion spent on settlements.
As such it’s hard to trust anything that they may produce as beneficial to the health and wellbeing as anything but that. We are, after all talking about an industry whose very existence depends on having sick individuals to treat.
Before you go ahead
There are plenty of groups advocating for making the administering of Vaccine products based on preference or at the very least broadening the period between each dosage.
So before you decide on whether or not you think Vaccinating is a good or a bad idea, here are
a few Books that you may want to consider reading through to help make a well-informed decision.
How the lust of corporate world, Scientific exploration, and biased government policies threaten our rights, our health and childhood problems by Louise Kuo Habakus.
The book essentially can be summarised by the following statement “Public health official’s state that vaccines are safe and effective, but the truth is far more complicated. Vaccination is a serious medical intervention that always carries the potential to injure and cause death as well as to prevent disease.
Coercive vaccination policies deprive people of free and informed consent—the hallmark of ethical medicine.” This excellent book explores the various topics that often get brushed aside from the popular media and journals, giving a first-hand account from the victims of vaccine products and their families as well as the ordeals that they have had to undergo to achieve a semblance of normalcy in their lives.
This book is essential if you want to understand the intricacies of the science that goes on behind the Vaccination program as well as the role of various pharmaceutical companies and governments as they wish to propagate an alternate narrative compared to the reality of the situation.
The newly edited and updated copy of the book includes mandates for healthcare workers, information about the concerns regarding the HPV vaccine development, and the story behind the Supreme Court’s recent vaccine decision.
If you’re looking for a handbook that can wipe out the fear of vaccination, then Vaccine Epidemic can be the best, and it requires reading for all people contemplating vaccination for themselves and their children. You can read the book in various formats such as Ebook, Hardcover and Audiobook format for complete information regarding vaccination.
