To vaccinate or not to vaccinate? That is the question

EACH week Talk of the Town poses a question to our readers on our Facebook page and group. This week’s Facebook question was: In light of the Eastern Cape Health Department’s latest vaccination programme, how do you feel about vaccinations for school children?

From the results, it appears that some parents have strong opinions about vaccinations.

Angela Liesenberg summed up her sentiments, “In two words…..herd immunity”.

“I don’t vaccinate my kids! And Won’t,” wrote Natalie Davenport

“My first child had injections up to six months old; his immune system is beyond weak. Every slight cold turns into some serious infection. My daughter, 10 months younger, had her first inoculation in hospital when born and polio, no other injections. She is never sick! Gets flu/cold over in two days maximum. My personal experience, but I will definitely not inoculate my children.”

Beverly Young wrote, “A difficult question to answer. I was vaccinated (70 years ago). My sons and grandchildren are all done. Perhaps one should look at history, worldwide, and make informed decisions regarding this, rather than mouthing the modern concepts of NO.

“I think one of the problems is that the number of vaccines children now have to have has increased considerably,”  Penny Elliott explained. “I battle to understand how we can be told that new-born babies cannot cope with anything other than breast milk, or a specially formulated milk for babies. [Yet,] at the same time, we should inject a whole bunch of chemicals into them.

“If I was having children today I would insist on seeing the manufacturers insert on the vaccine, and if it does say ‘could cause death’, as we are told they do, I would definitely say NO!”

Gavin Came wrote, “No credible research against vaccines,” but Mauneen Charter countered, expressing the general feeling among the readers. “If I had the option I would not,” she wrote.


  1. It isn’t just the mercury that is in third world vaccines and flu vaccines – the neurotoxic aluminium, animal and human cells DNA and dozens of other questionable ingredients which are listed. Look for yourself what is in the vaccines you receive

    It is also the unlisted nasties which are in vaccines:

    Researchers examining 44 samples of 30 different vaccines found dangerous contaminants, including red blood cells in one vaccine and metal toxicants in every single sample tested – except in one animal vaccine.

    Using extremely sensitive new technologies not used in vaccine manufacturing, Italian scientists reported they were “baffled” by their discoveries which included single particles and aggregates of organic debris including red cells of human or possibly animal origin and metals including lead, tungsten, gold, and chromium, that have been linked to autoimmune disease and leukemia.

    Recent glass shards found in infant vaccines was ignored by government and the vaccines were not recalled.

    There is the potential for drugs administered intravenously that contain these fragments to cause embolic, thrombotic and other vascular events (e.g., phlebitis); and, when administered subcutaneously, to lead to development of foreign body granuloma, local injection site reactions, and increased immunogenicity.[5]

    Vaccines manufactured using human fetal cells contain residual DNA fragments (50-500 bp) (Table I). It is possible that these contaminating fragments could be incorporated into a child’s genome and disrupt normal gene function, leading to autistic phenotypes. In this study we demonstrate foreign DNA uptake in human cells and genomic integration by incubating the cells with Cy3-labeled human Cot1 (placental) DNA fragments which represents contaminating residual human fetal DNA in vaccines.

    A measles vaccine was found to contain low levels of the retrovirus avian leukosis virus

    Rotateq, Merck’s rotavirus vaccine, was found to contain a virus similar to simian (monkey) retrovirus

    Rotarix (GlaxoSmithKine’s rotavirus vaccine) was found to contain “significant levels” of porcine cirovirus 1

    So in their tests, nearly 40 percent of the vaccines they tested contained viral contaminants. The implications of these findings on the alleged safety of the vaccine supply remains to be seen, but clearly there is contamination occurring that was a complete surprise to researchers, health officials and vaccine manufacturers alike.
