Are Vaccines for Pets and People Effective?

Vaccines are in the headlines more and more these days as people question if vaccines are safe, necessary or even effective for people and pets. Get used to to this as more and more of them are going to be pushed at us. Just why is this? According to Tony Isaacs, in his article from Health Secrets Newsletter entitled, “Brace Yourself for the Golden Era of Vaccinations,” Isaacs shares that, “drug makers around the world are jumping on the vaccine profits bandwagon that is being hailed as the golden era of vaccines. According to market research firm Kalorama Information, vaccine sales should double, from $19 billion in 2009 to $39 billion in 2013 – five times the $8 billion in vaccine sales in 2004.” Isaacs explains that soon we’ll be asked to roll up our sleeves for vaccines thought to prevent, “Alzheimer’s disease, AIDS, pandemic flu, genital herpes, malaria, tuberculosis, urinary tract infections, grass allergies, traveler’s diarrhea, addiction and relapse – you name it, the pharmaceutical industry is working on a vaccine to supposedly prevent it. In late 2010, it was estimated that no fewer than 365 new vaccinations for infectious diseases were being developed. The lure of big profits and government support has been drawing in a whole gambit of companies, from new biotechs to Johnson & Johnson, helped along by traditional vaccination supporters such as the World Health Organization, the CDC, global charities and the mass media.”

Are we being asked to give up the idea that we even have an immune system and an ability to heal ourselves without being stuck by a needle?

Isaacs explains that, “the vaccine the experts call the game changer – Wyeth’s Prevnar, is aimed at ear infections, pneumonia and blood infections. Prevnar became the first vaccine to exceed $1 billion in annual sales. Prevnar had sales of $2.8 billion in 2008, followed by the highly controversial Gardasil with 2.3 billion. The latest move appears to be the mandatory vaccination of boys for HPV. Meanwhile, there have been no long term studies on vaccination safety for even single vaccines – much less the effects of so many combined vaccines. Already, vaccinations have been linked to disorders of the blood, brain, skin, and nervous system – including encephalitis, paralysis, nerve inflammation, diseases of the lymph glands, skin disorders, allergies, arthritis, cancer and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.”

Are we being asked to be in fear every time we, our kids or our pets have a sniffle?

Vaccines are drugs, they are injected into our bodies and stay there. We can’t just poop them out like a bad meal! When will we realize that for every action we take and do to our bodies, there will be a reaction and sometimes a “recall”?

According to Catherine J. Frompovich, in her article entitled “Vaccine Recalls,” for, she states that “vaccines harming children are often not recalled,” however it seems to be official now as “recalls for vaccines and immunoglobulins were higher than other drug classes,” per a recent 72-page report by GBI Research, published March 14, 2012. That report analyzed recalls on a year-to-year basis for the years 2007 to 2010.

Ms. Fropovich shares here that if you want to know what is really going on, you need big bucks because, “To obtain the report for more detailed information, the online cost is $3,500.00, which probably is an effective way for keeping much of the disclosed information out of the reach of researchers {and us} who can’t afford to shell out those kinds of bucks, but who would be the most inclined to make the contents known?” She continues, “According to what little information is shared at the Fast Market Research web site, ‘The reasons for recalls varied from serious adverse events, labeling errors and quality defects, to manufacturing defects.’ Interestingly, the highest recalls in 2010 were with infectious diseases [vaccines?] and immunodeficiency disorders therapy biologics. Somehow one has to wonder if that represents the classic “chicken or egg” question of which came first, i.e., do infectious disease vaccines somehow induce immunodeficiency disorders for which pharmaceuticals are manufactured and sold?

There are a number of doctors and vets now who are openly saying that constant vaccinations do NOT save your pet, especially if they're not being exposed to the items in question. I think we need to explore all avenues, not just lock-step to what Big Pharma wants.

Vaccines can be very dangerous and there are often effective alternative options.

There is also a very controversial alternative homeopathically to traditional vaccines and we can learn a bit about them in relation to our animal companions here:

This just in from (NaturalNews) The concept of vaccinating to immunize began in 1796, when British apothecary (pharmacist) Edward Jenner inserted cowpox pus under the skin of an eight year old boy. Jenner based his experiment on an unsubstantiated rumor that anyone who had experienced cowpox would be immune to smallpox.

Over the next couple of years, Jenner vaccinated others with cowpox to immunize them against smallpox. Without any actual proof of efficacy and safety, Jenner impressed King George III enough with a bogus immunization guarantee that he was awarded the equivalent of today's $500,000.

Thus, Jenner was the first medical professional to administer diseased matter as medication to a healthy person and receive a substantial financial award. He was also the first to constantly denounce vaccination detractors successfully. He was protecting both his ego and large public purse.

Many health professionals throughout the 19th Century knew that there had been several cases of smallpox among those with cowpox histories. Jenner's premise was flawed. See just how flawed and only the tip of the iceberg here:
