Thousands March in Poland Against Forced Vaccination

Thousands March in Poland Against Forced Vaccination

Thousands of people in Warsaw, Poland marched in protest to forced vaccinations of children earlier this month in observation of International Vaccine Injury Awareness Day on June 3, 2018.1 2 Poland’s childhood vaccination schedule requires a total of 11 vaccinations, including vaccinations against tuberculosis, hepatitis B, diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis (whooping cough), polio, Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib), measles, mumps, rubella and pneumococci.3 4 5

Under Polish law, parents who refuse to adhere to the vaccination schedule are given a warning. If they subsequently refuse to vaccinate their children they are fined the equivalent of approximately $2,665 for each vaccination missed—up to a total of about $13,325.5

Despite these fines, more Poles are refusing to vaccinate their kids. Last year, over 30,000 parents and others responsible for the care of children in Poland turned down vaccines for their kids. That is 24 percent more than in 2016 and 89 percent more than in 2010.5 6 “In recent years, an increasing number of parents have challenged [the] legal requirement [for childhood vaccinations] and refused or delayed vaccination against certain diseases,” notes epidemiologist Paweł Stefanoff, MD, PhD of Poland’s National Institute of Public Health.7 8

One of the reasons a growing number of parents in Poland are avoiding vaccinating their children is concern about the safety of childhood vaccines. According to a report by Poland’s IAR news agency, cited by Radio Poland, adverse reactions to vaccinations “occur on average in one of every 10,000 cases.”5

Dr. Stefanoff is uncertain about what is fueling this trend in vaccine hesitancy in Poland, but he thinks it may reflect a “global phenomenon of declining trust in authority.”7

    There is a Global Distrust in the World Health Organizations and Big Pharmacys like Phizer and Merck that are creating unsafe and ineffective vaccines that are a harming our children. I have a daughter who was harmed by the MMR vaccines at age 7. She had a fever for 2 1/2 week temp 104. was dying and no doctor could help her. She evenutally pulled thru and the developed white patches on her neck , face, elbow, stomach and knees. I took her to several doctors and they diagnosed her with autoimmune disorder and vitilgo. She still struggles with her disorder. As a child my son was harmed by vaccines developed ADHD hyperactivity, was in special education all his life as an adult now he cannot lead a normal life and has depression and is suicidal. I reported these cases to the Vaccine Adverse Injury Program and they were not able to get vaccine lot # from the providers office because they never wrote them down. So what is it that they injected into my children if there was no record of it on file. I have a solution to all this ..why dont theses creators of vaccines inject themselves first with Thermisol, Mercury, Aluminun first before they inject someone elses children with these deadly vaccines. I thought its against the Law to harm any child.
