The History, the Facts, and the Statistics You Need to Know From the Groundbreaking Film

This fact sheet covers the vaccination programs in the United States and across the globe that have a long history of causing, ignoring, and concealing vaccine injuries.

COVID-19 Vaccines Are No Solution to Medical Racism

In recent months, numerous constituencies — physician groups, government departments and the Gates Foundation, to name a few — have called for underserved communities of color to be placed at the front of the line for COVID-19 vaccines, characterizing this gesture as a “practical and symbolic way to fight racial and economic injustice.”

Henrietta Lacks

In 1951, doctors at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland took samples of cancerous cells from a young African American woman named Henrietta Lacks who had aggressive cervical cancer. While these cells became key in many important scientific advancements, the procedure was carried out without Lacks’s knowledge or consent, underscoring the unethical treatment of minorities for medical research.

Dr. J. Marion Sims

Although Dr. J. Marion Sims is considered to be the “father of modern gynecology,” his experimentation on enslaved black women was performed without the benefit of anesthesia. These women were given no choice in participation in these experiments and endured unimaginable pain and suffering. Read More.

Autism Rates are Higher than Average in the American Somali Population

The children of American Somalis in Minneapolis suffer the highest known rate of severe autism in the world. Many of the parents with affected children believe vaccines are linked to the diagnosis. Read More.

Polio Vaccines Distributed and Promoted by Bill Gates are Responsible for Cases of Polio in Africa

Reports have streamed in for years regarding the circulation of vaccine-derived polioviruses in numerous African and Asian countries. A CDC virologist confessed, “We have now created more new emergences of the virus than we have stopped.” Read More.

HIV Research on People in Zimbabwe

The ethics involved in research activities conducted on the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in Zimbabwe have been questioned by many. The concerns include the failure to provide interventions of known efficacy, ethical relevance of study design, informed consent, and exploitation. Read More.

Experiments on Children in Nigeria with Meningitis

During a 1996 meningitis epidemic, Pharma giant Pfizer enrolled nearly 100 Nigerian children with meningitis in a trial testing its antibiotic trovafloxacin (Trovan) against ceftriaxone. Families of the children claim that Pfizer didn’t inform them that trovafloxacin was an experimental treatment nor did they obtain informed consent. Read More.

German Doctors Sterilized Women in Namibia

In the early 1900s, German doctors forced sterilization upon women in Namibia in an effort to ban mixed-race marriages. Read More.

Bill Gates Gave Millions to Black Colleges and Universities to use as Coronavirus Testing Facilities

The Bill and Melinda Gates foundation has pledged $15 million over three years to several historically Black colleges and universities to support Covid-19 testing on their campuses. According to the Wall Street Journal, “The donation comes as historically Black medical schools have begun to recruit volunteers for Covid-19 vaccine trials. The trials haven’t recruited enough African-American participants so far, and presidents of historically Black schools say their institutions are getting involved to show the Black community they trust the vaccine trial process.” Read More.

Number of Vaccines on the Childhood Schedule Has Exploded

In 1962, the maximum number of vaccines a child received by age five was three. In 1983, the maximum number of vaccines a child received by age five was ten. By age five today, children receive up to thirty-eight vaccines and by age 18, kids in the U.S. receive up to 72 doses of 16 vaccines. Read More.

Vaccine Manufacturers and Healthcare Providers Cannot Be Held Liable for Vaccine Injuries

In 1986, Congress enacted the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act to shield vaccine makers from liability in response to industry claims of too many lawsuits from families of vaccine-injured children. Since then, families of children who have been killed or injured by vaccines can only pursue compensation through “Vaccine Court” which pits the families against the federal government. Similarly, the PREP Act was amended to confer liability protection to drug companies who manufacture COVID vaccines. Read More.

The Introduction of Diphtheria-Tetanus-Pertussis and Oral Polio Vaccine Among Young Infants in an Urban African Community

In the primary analysis, DTP-vaccinated infants experienced mortalities five times greater than DTP-unvaccinated infants.  Mortalities to vaccinated girls were 9.98 times those among females in the unvaccinated control group, while mortalities to vaccinated boys were 3.93 times the controls. Read More.

Is diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis (DTP) associated with increased female mortality? A meta-analysis testing the hypotheses of sex-differential non-specific effects of DTP vaccine

This study of the introduction of DTP in rural Guinea-Bissau indicated a 2-fold higher mortality among vaccinated children. This is one of several early studies that documented vaccination status and followed children prospectively. All of them indicated that DTP-vaccinated children died at rates far exceeding mortality amongst the control group. A meta-analysis of all eight known studies found a two-fold higher mortality for DTP-vaccinated compared to DTP-unvaccinated. Read More.

The Introduction of Diphtheria-Tetanus-Pertussis and Oral Polio Vaccine Among Young Infants in an Urban African Community: A Natural Experiment.

This team of researchers found that girls vaccinated with the DTP vaccine died at 10 times the rate of unvaccinated kids. Read More.

CDC Data Reanalysis Shows Strong, Statistically Significant Relationship Between MMR Vaccine & Autism

Conclusion from Dr. Hooker’s article:
“The first data set used by DeStefano represents a huge lost opportunity to understand any role between the timing of the first MMR vaccine and autism. The re-analysis presented here elucidates effects that should at least merit further investigation. Specifically, increased risks of earlier vaccination are observed for African-American males and among cases of autism without MR. Both phenomena deserve additional study that could yield important clues regarding the current enormous increase in autism.” Read More.

The Impact of Vaccines on Mortality Decline Since 1900—According to Published Science

Since 1900, there’s been a 74% decline in mortality rates in developed countries, largely due to a marked decrease in deaths from infectious diseases. How much of this decline was due to vaccines? The history and data provide clear answers that matter greatly in today’s vitriolic debate about vaccines. Read More.

Slides on Mortality Rates of Childhood Diseases

The official narrative from the pharmaceutical industry and captured government health agencies regarding vaccines is that they are the most important public health achievement in history and are responsible for saving “millions of lives” each year. The public has largely accepted this portrayal as truth—but is it? Looking back at the decline in mortality from various childhood diseases compared with the onset of vaccines designed to prevent them tell a different story. Obviously, other factors have been critical in the decline in mortality rates of these diseases. Read More.

Research shows that Black people have a more robust immune response

Somali Americans develop twice the antibody response to rubella from the current vaccine compared to Caucasians in a new Mayo Clinic study on individualized aspects of immune response. A non-Somali, African-American cohort ranked next in immune response, still significantly higher than Caucasians, and Hispanic Americans in the study were least responsive to the vaccine. The findings appear in the journal Vaccine. Read more.
