A Center for Disease Control study has found more proof that vaccines are safe for children.

Over the years parents have become increasingly more concerned about the negative effects of vaccinations, but the CDC still encourages shots to protect kids from deadly diseases, like pneumonia.  Some worry that the amount of antigens, which are the part of the vaccine that helps the body fight off diseases, can cause autism. 
 
There are more vaccines available to children now than in the last few decades, but a study completed last week shows there's no relationship between autism and the disease fighting substances.
 
"I think they're important because it builds your immune system up in your body, that's the biggest thing," said Leonard Krug, father and grandfather.

Experts said the fear of unknown risks of vaccines shouldn't keep parents from trying to prevent the known threats of deadly diseases.

They keep 'telling' us this lie and ignoring all the data PROVING otherwise! Explain how some kids get permanent damage right after a vaccine. Explain how some have died after having vaccines. They won't. They won't even report it when it happens. No one believes this crap. Everytime more kids get ill after vaccines....the CDC puts out another "safety comment" without any actual 'prove.' It's their unproven opinion and it's not correct.

My own sister had a flu vaccine a few years ago and it nearly killed her. Since then she's refused to have any more and has been just fine without it. These vaccines are becoming ridiculously a money-making thing and that's all. I myself have never had a flu vaccine and don't get flu but maybe once every 3 or 4 years. Yet I see those in my family getting them and getting the flu almost immediately after vaccination. Why put these POISONS into your body unnecessarily? Its' downright dispicable that the CDC promotes something that still isn't proven to be safe! Just THIS year, the head of the pharmaceutical company that makes vaccines for flu stated himself that "this year...we think we got it right" when asked about the flu vaccine. So what the heck was people getting the previous years??????????????? Good question, but they won't answer it. Ignoring appropriate questions and not answering with acceptable proof makes us even more suspicious.
