We are nearly half way through the 11 thoughtful points that we comprised to share across the coming weeks. Thank you for reading and consider each. Reputable sources have been linked (hover over orange text).

As parents, we have done the work; we desire to share with you where we are coming from. Our concerns are valid. Here is why.

5. Vaccines are Big Business & Big Government

Today, vaccines are a flourishing, multibillion dollar global export business with outsized growth and spectacular profitability, enhanced by the previously mentioned protections and privileges. The World Health Organization calls vaccines “an engine for the drug industry.” Hundreds of vaccines are under development; many are at the top of government agendas. Public-private vaccine partnerships, closed door proceedings, and a busy revolving door between government and industry suggest a system that’s rife with conflicts of interest.

The pharmaceutical lobby is legendary and outspends the massive insurance lobby by 50%. Drug companies spend billions of dollars on direct-to-consumer advertising and donations to medical associations and pro-industry groups, including industry-funded non-profit organizations like Every Child By Two and the Immunization Action Coalition. They all say vaccines are safe (it surely helps to keep the money flowing).

Our government’s goal is to get Americans vaccinated. The CDC engages in “the activities needed to assure vaccination of a population” and the American Academy of Pediatrics works hard to overcome resistance. Far more is spent on vaccine development, promotion, distribution, and compliance (about $4 billion) than it does on vaccine safety (about $20 million).
