Here's a letter which appeared in the Anchorage Daily News
The Daily News criticizes parents but ignores tragic vaccine injuries
The Daily News recently termed as irresponsible parents who do not vaccinate their children ("Kids with no shots," Aug. 21). Almost concurrently, it ran an extensive story covering a rally against discrimination. While I applaud the coverage of this important topic, which happily did not result in physical harm to anyone, I am disappointed in the paper's apparent lack of interest in other important stories documenting such harm.
It is public information that more than 100,000 vaccine-related injuries have been reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System database, with even a vaccine manufacturer admitting this to be only the tip of the iceberg, perhaps as low as 2 percent. This is not being reported by the Daily News.
When 50 Anchorage residents rallied downtown on a cold April evening to discuss and protest forced injection, even bringing their damaged children, the newspaper provided no coverage. Actual vaccine damage, happening to actual Alaska children who have been compensated by the U.S. Government, is being ignored. Discrimination is reprehensible. So is vaccine damage. Ignoring the truth will only lead to more preventable tragedies.
Unless born to an infected mother, a child's only risks of acquiring hepatitis B are sex and/or IV drugs or blood. I have yet to see an infant, or even a 5-year-old, frequent a bordello or mainline a drug. Have you? If so, I will consider joining your bandwagon.
