Vaccine Safety

The AMA, AAP, and CDC appear to believe vaccine reactions are rare. Many parents of autistic children have doubts. This was clearly expressed at the ASA conference in Indianapolis. Dr. Jeff Bradstreet, Dr. Jerrold Kartzinel, Dr. Stephanie Cave, Dr. Amy Holmes, Dr. Andrew Wakefield, and others have published information and research on this subject. I recommend Dr. Cave's book, What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Children's Vaccinations (ISBN 0446677078), to friends with young children.

We are extremely fortunate to have Dr. Boyd Haley and Dr. Curt Pendergrass in Lexington. Dr. Haley is a biochemist, professor, and chair of the chemistry department at the University of Kentucky. Dr. Pendergrass is a toxicologist and president of ALT Inc. These scientists have over 35 years combined research experience in the study of protein biochemistry, heavy metal neurotoxicology and neurodegenerative diseases. They are recognized experts in mercury toxicity.

The United States Senate and House are involved in our national vaccine policy. I think legislators have good intentions and do not want to believe that the dramatic rise in autoimmune disorders such as asthma, juvenile diabetes, and autism could be connected to our aggressive vaccination program.

I shared our concerns with Jim Bunning and Mitch McConnell. Their replies are attached below. It was a disappointing experience.


Please don't let a doctor or school system force your hand. Every parent should study the risks and benefits of each vaccination before choosing what is best for their children. In Kentucky, KRS 214.036 gives parents the right to refuse any vaccination. You simply need to do produce a notorized statement. No public school system can legally exclude your child if you provide such a document. They may try to exclude your child, but should realize their error after reading KRS 214.036.

Numerous school districts in Kentucky have accepted the following exemption form.

Vaccine Exemption Form

Laws similar to KRS 214.036 have been repealed in other states. It is important that we defend this legislation.

In my opinion, no parent should vaccinate a child who is sick or taking antibiotics. I also think doctors place children at great risk when they administer multiple vaccinations at the same time. Some doctors feel they shouldn't miss any opportunity to bring a child "up to date" and that parents don't understand the risks of falling behind or skipping a vaccine. I believe parents of autistic children understand the risks and should be free to make choices about their child's health care without harassment.
