All three of my children have been vaccine-free since birth. They all have incredibly resilient immune systems and are rarely if ever ill. Part of the comfort in the decision making process regarding vaccination comes from education and research, listening to both sides of the debate and then making your own informed decision without being bullied either way. Here are six very inexpensive, yet extremely valuable publications I recommend that may help you better assess your options regarding vaccination.
1) VACCINE FREE by Andreas Bachmair
111 Stories of Unvaccinated Children is a moving testament to the power of the body to take care of itself and the trust that people put in that natural process. In this book, based on research with more than 15000 participants from all over the world, you will find stories of families who investigated the vaccine topic carefully and thoroughly because they love and want to protect their children. These stories will educate you to not follow public opinion and propaganda but rather question what is happening and become informed when making decisions that pertain to the health of your children and our future generations.
I strongly recommend this book, knowing that the time you spend reading it will be time well spent, an investment in yourself and your children, which will indeed bring many rewards to your future health.

2) VACCINE-NATION by Andreas Moritz
Author of a dozen books, Andreas Moritz takes on yet another controversial subject, this time to expose the Vaccine Myth. In Vaccine-nation, Moritz unravels the mother of all vaccine lies — that vaccines are safe and they prevent disease. Furthermore, he reveals undeniable scientific proof that vaccines are actually implicated in most diseases today.
This book is loaded with facts and figures and case studies to back up the authors feelings. There is tons of information in here and you’ll probably want to re-read it several times to make sure you understand it all. He takes a look at a variety of different vaccines including chicken pox, the flu, hepatitis B, and measles, mumps and rubella. He also talks about the reasoning behind the Center for Disease Control and the World Health Organization for encouraging these vaccines. Most of all, I enjoyed the section on the connection between vaccines and autism spectrum disorders. The figures he presents of vaccinated children having 120% more asthma, 317% more ADHD, 185% more neurological disorders and 146% more autism than those not vaccinated really grabbed my attention as a mom with children affected both with ADHD and asthma. Definitely an eye opening read! — Ellen P. Lafleche-christian
3) RAISING A VACCINE-FREE CHILD by Wendy Lydall
This book provides parents with a comprehensive, scientifically based guide to the facts, myths, problems and solutions associated with raising a vaccine free child. It helps them protect their children both from the wiles of the vaccine industry and from harmful germs. It explains the difference between childhood diseases and the other infectious diseases, which is the key to understanding immunization. The book provides an insight into the workings of the vaccine industry, and into the role of the media in perpetuating myths about vaccination and infectious diseases. There is a detailed chapter on “herd immunity” which empowers parents to withstand the accusation that their vaccine free children pose a threat to others. It also helps parents cope with aggression from individuals and with intimidation from the medical authorities. A look at the history of vaccination reveals that it is an unscientific procedure that is based on falsehood, cruelty and supposition.
Wendy Lydall has been a health activist for over 20 years, and in that role has both counseled and learned from thousands of parents. She has published articles on a variety of health topics, including vaccination, toxic dental fillings and the irradiation of food with gamma rays. She has written hundreds of letters to high-ranking medical officials in the USA, Britain, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa asking them to provide evidence that supports their claims about immunization. They have not been able to provide this evidence because their claims are wrong. When her first child was born she decided to research immunization thoroughly. The startling information she unearthed has led her to share her knowledge with other parents.
4) VACCINE SAFETY MANUAL FOR CONCERNED FAMILIES AND HEALTH PRACTITIONERS by Neil Z. Miller (Author), Russell Blaylock (Foreward)
The Vaccine Safety Manual (new, updated 2012 edition) is the worlds most complete guide to immunization risks and protection. It includes pertinent information on every major vaccine: polio, tetanus, MMR, hepatitis A, B, HPV (cervical cancer), Hib, Flu, chickenpox, shingles, rotavirus, pneumococcal, meningococcal, RSV, DTaP, anthrax, smallpox, TB, and more. All of the information, including detailed vaccine safety and efficacy data, is written in an easy-to-understand format, yet includes more than 1,000 scientific citations. More than 100 charts, tables, graphs and illustrations supplement the text. This encyclopedic health manual is an important addition to every family’s home library and will be referred to again and again.
The author spent nearly three years researching vaccine studies from around the world and summarizing them in this monumental work. Each chapter in this Vaccine Safety Manual begins with a definition of the particular disease for which a vaccine has been developed, including data on who is most at risk, disease prevalence and severity. The vaccine for each disease is then analyzed according to its safety and efficacy profile. The safety sections include studies documenting vaccine-associated morbidity and mortality, as well as several personal stories from vaccine victims attesting to the real toll on human lives. Some chapters also include case histories from the U.S. government’s own national database of vaccine damage — VAERS. The efficacy sections analyze data from multiple sources to reveal the prophylactic potential of each vaccine: how likely it is to protect against the disease and reduce its incidence throughout society. Excerpts from congressional hearings, and vaccine debacles of historical significance, are included in this book as well. Charts, graphs, tables and other illustrations supplement the text for added comprehension.
5) VACCINES ARE THEY REALLY SAFE AND EFFECTIVE? by Neil Z. Miller
The bestselling handbook evaluates each vaccine for safety, efficacy, and long-term effects. It contains the most comprehensive, up-to-date, uncensored data available — information that many doctors don’t even know. It includes the most recent studies, several case histories detailing vaccine-induced damage to children, and pinpoints for parents exact conditions that may put their own child at high risk. In addition, health alternatives are offered, along with legal options to mandatory shots. It contains 30 graphs and diagrams plus more than 900 footnotes and scientific references so that all of the information may be confirmed. Parents, educators, health professionals, and other concerned individuals have very few sources of information permitting them to make informed choices. But concerned parents are pleading for answers to their many questions. Doctors only tell them one side of the story; there is another side. Helps concerned people make wise and responsible decisions. Includes information on ALL childhood shots, plus current data on HPV (cervical cancer), shingles, smallpox, and flu vaccines. Over 150,000 copies sold!
This book will continue to arouse strong emotions. It is well written and well documented. Furthermore, this latest edition of “Vaccines: Are They Really Safe and Effective?” is much more extensive than the earlier edition. For example, the previous book had 300 notes and references; this new book has more than 900 notes and references — a threefold increase in researched data! The previous book had 12 illustrations; this new book has 30 charts and graphs. The previous book was just 78 pages; this new book has 128 pages — nearly twice as much new information!
This latest edition also answers many more questions than the earlier edition. For example, how are the vaccines made? Do they still contain thimerosal, a mercury derivative? Are the chickenpox and MMR vaccines manufactured in human fetal tissue? Do credible studies show correlations between the current autism epidemic and vaccines? These questions and many, many more are answered in this book.
6) VACCINE VOODOO by Catherine J Frompovich (Author), Paul G King PhD (Introduction)
Vaccination Voodoo uses peer reviewed journal studies, U.S. health agencies information, and other documentation to disclose what’s in vaccines that consumers, unfortunately, do not know. Vaccine ingredients can include such components as Thimerosal, which is 49.6% ethylmercury, aluminum, 2-Phenoxyethanol, formaldehyde/Formalin, polysorbate 80, phenol, antibiotics, gluteraldehyde, MSG, sodium borate, plus a ‘shopping list’ of other neurotoxic chemicals, along with vaccine production media that includes anything from monkey kidney and other animal tissues to genetically engineered insect virus to diploid cells, which are aborted human fetal tissue. Surely, vaccines are not just an antigen and saline water, as many health professionals would have you believe. The book discusses adverse effects from vaccines both in trials, and in foreign countries where vaccination campaigns are being closed down by governments due to so many adverse effects from vaccines–something the U.S. media doesn’t report. Vaccination ‘politics’ and how they affect everyone from the newborn infant to senior citizen become apparent with the author’s candid discussion of what her research of vaccines since the 1980s has uncovered. Many of the myths revolving around vaccines and vaccinations are exposed for what they truly are, public relations and media spin. Vaccination Voodoo, What YOU Don’t Know About Vaccines will open readers’ eyes to information they should know and utilize as part of being informed healthcare consumers.
The author assembles a breadth of research and compiles the “must know” information regarding the false science about vaccination and the rise in correlated diseases. Regardless of your position on mass vaccination programs, this book will surely make you question their safety and effectiveness.
