Mike Adams is basically claiming that settlements obtained from a federal program are evidence of the pervasive threat posed by vaccinations. It is a claim debunked by his own faulty assumptions, existing policy, and statistics.
Adams derived his article from a Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Monthly Statistics Report on the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. (attached) According to Adams:
It is interesting what Adams extrapolates from this information:The document reveals that a shocking 633 petitions for serious vaccine injury or death have been filed in fiscal year 2017. This follows 1,120 petitions that were filed in 2016.
The number of petitions filed is a tiny fraction of the total number of children who are seriously harmed by vaccine injuries, as doctors aggressively brainwash parents into believing that seizures, convulsions, autism and other serious conditions are never caused by vaccines. Furthermore, families of vaccine-injured children must hire an attorney to file a petition with the U.S. government, then wait anywhere from two to ten years for a decision by a “kangaroo court” that’s stacked against them. Thus, in nearly all cases of vaccine injury, parents are convinced into either believing that vaccines had nothing to do with the injury or that trying to fight the government for compensation is a complete waste of time. (This is all by design.)
As a result, the real number of vaccine-injured children in America is at least 100 times larger, and more reasonably as much as 1000 times larger when you consider “minor” brain damage, short-term seizures and other conditions that are difficult for parents to notice.
First, take note of the fact that Adams simply invented the “100 times larger” estimate and ran with it. The 63,000 vaccine-injured children are a straw man.In other words, there are at least 63,000 vaccine-injured children in America from 2017 alone, making vaccine injuries a leading cause of injury in children. This is all hidden and denied by the pharma-controlled media, of course, which wants you to focus on 48 children with measles in Michigan rather than 63,000 vaccine-injured children all across America.
Second, no one ever claims vaccines are harmless. The influenza vaccine is listed in the report as having one of the highest incidence of petitions. The CDC website offers a series of health warnings for people considering the vaccine.
I didn’t review every other vaccine, but I think the same protocols exists for them.
Third, adverse reactions to immunizations do rarely occur. How rarely? The same HHS report cited by Adams actually answers that:
Mike Adams is indulging in unsubstantiated hysteria, not actual facts.How many petitions have been awarded compensation?
According to the CDC, from 2006 to 2015 over 2.8 billion doses of covered vaccines were distributed in the U.S. For petitions filed in this time period, 4,426 petitions were adjudicated by the Court, and of those 2,884 were compensated. This means for every 1 million doses of vaccine that were distributed, 1 individual was compensated.
