Why Do Most Medical Doctors Blindly Recommend Vaccinations?

Multiple reasons explain why the vast majority of medically trained physicians support vaccinations.

Physicians receive the majority of their training during medical school, which is heavily influenced by pharmaceutical companies and government institutions such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Both pharmaceutical companies and government organizations support a misguided agenda in which vaccinations are promoted as a primary tool to prevent disease. Practitioners are rewarded for high vaccination rates.

Doctors are pressured to vaccinate or face negative professional and financial consequences. Medical doctors belong to professional medical organizations which recommend vaccines.

To summarize, physicians exist in a world where vaccinations are considered the primary weapon for disease prevention. The majority come to believe in vaccine safety and effectiveness.

It takes great courage, curiosity and independence for physicians to think outside of the box and do their own research on vaccines. For those who dare to think outside of the box, they can face negative professional and financial consequences.

Medical School Training On Vaccinations

When viewing an actual curriculum entitled TIME (Teaching Immunization for Medical Education) used in the training of physicians in medical school, the focus appears to be on review of the childhood vaccination schedule, methods to encourage parental compliance and advocacy of the safety and effectiveness of vaccines to prevent disease.

This model was used at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, dated 2011. [1,2]

An example of a case scenario and how to respond to a parent’s concern about multiple vaccinations follows:

“How would you answer the parents’ question, ‘Are so many shots really needed?’

Historically, larger numbers of cases of vaccine-preventable diseases were greatly reduced by vaccination.

Deaths, hospitalizations, and brain damage decreased as well. Since these diseases are contagious, they can return if immunization rates drop, as has happened in other developed countries when immunization rates dropped (see Table 2).

The immune system is capable of responding to 100,000 vaccines at one time, according to the abstract by Dr. Offit, et al.”

The TIME curriculum listed the following teaching objectives for the medical students:

  1. “Given a patient scenario, recommend vaccination appropriately, according to the recommended childhood immunization schedule, and state the administration routes and injection sites for these vaccinations.
  2. Given a child who is behind schedule, explain the principles of accelerated and catch-up vaccination, and determine needed vaccinations for current and subsequent visits.
  3. Explain the rationale for simultaneous vaccine administration and the potential consequences of non-simultaneous administration.
  4. Given a patient scenario, identify valid contraindications and precautions to vaccination without missing vaccination opportunities that are appropriate.
  5. Explain general vaccine safety and adverse event information, including the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP), the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), and use of the Vaccine Information Statements (VISs).
  6. Suggest three procedures that a physician can implement in a practice or clinic to improve childhood vaccination rates.

Secondary Objectives:

  1. Given a patient scenario, recommend vaccination, if indicated, during both acute-care and well-child visits to providers, thereby reducing missed opportunities
  2. State sources of current information on childhood vaccinations, including information about the schedule, minimal interval between doses, and vaccine contraindications.” [3] (emphasis added)

“Ways to improve office vaccination rates include the following:

  1. Conducting problem solving and goal setting activities, following an evaluation of the practice’s current vaccination rates. Subsequently, vaccination rates should be monitored with ongoing feedback to providers about vaccination rates.
  2. Having office staff assess vaccination status at patient registration or during vital signs. The office computer can generate “tickler” reminders about vaccinations.
  3. Administering vaccines simultaneously if more than one is indicated.
  4. Having a dedicated spot in the medical record for vaccination information.
  5. Training providers to distinguish between valid and invalid contraindications.
  6. Writing standing orders to allow the nurse to administer routine vaccinations.
  7. Marking updated copies of schedules and contraindication checklists available.
  8. Monitoring rates, providing feedback, encouraging competition, and offering prizes. Take Home Point.

• Practical ways to increase vaccination rates are available and include evaluation of rates, problem solving, goal setting, monitoring, and feedback.” [4] (emphasis added)

What Doctors Say About their Training

This focus in medical school on vaccination schedules and compliance has been validated by physicians who have shared their medical school training experience. Two well-know physicians reported the following about their training:

Dr. Suzanne Humphries stated:

“We learn that vaccines need to be given on schedule. We are indoctrinated with the mantra that ‘vaccines are safe and effective’ — neither of which is true. Doctors today are given extensive training on how to talk to ‘hesitant’ parents — how to frighten them by vastly inflating the risks during natural infection… on the necessity of twisting parents’ arm to confirm, or fire them from their practices. Doctors are trained that NOTHING bad should be said about any vaccine, period.”

Dr. Bob Sears stated:

“Doctors learn a lot about diseases in medical school, but we learn very little about vaccines….

“We don’t review the research ourselves. We never learn what goes into making vaccines or how their safety is studied. So, when patients want a little more information about shots, all we can really say as doctors is that the diseases are bad and the shots are good.” [5]

Physicians Are Taught That Vaccines Save Lives

Physicians are taught in medical school that vaccinations are responsible for eliminating disease. Their training focuses on the great danger that once common childhood diseases posed.

They are told about the death and misery that resulted from these diseases, which vaccines are credited for eliminating. Contrary views, facts, reality and positions on disease elimination and vaccine dangers are not emphasized. [6]

The Funding of Medical Schools

Pharmaceutical companies donate billions of dollars to medical schools, and with their funding comes great influence on the curriculum for medical students.

Pharmaceutical companies are the makers of vaccinations, so they profit largely by teaching medical students, future physicians, the importance of vaccinations for health.

Government funding is even greater for many medical schools, which means that government institutions such as the CDC also wield great influence on medical school curriculum. The CDC supports the current childhood vaccine schedule.

NPR did a survey which found that between 2 and 16 percent of medical schools’ annual budgets are derived from the pharmaceutical industry.

As one example, the University of Oklahoma Health Science Center, a medium-sized medical school with 585 students, obtained 13.5 percent of its budget from pharmaceutical companies in 2003.

The school received grants from drug giants AstraZeneca, Merck, Novartis, Pharmacia and Upjohn, totaling $13.8 million. More than half of their budget came from the National Institute of Health and other federal agencies, totaling $58.8 million. [7]

How Physicians Are Rewarded for High Vaccination Rates

The Centers for Disease Control has a national program called AFIX, standing for Assessment, Feedback Incentive and eXchange, which aims to increase vaccination rates.

The program began as a pilot program in Georgia in 1986, and then was adopted across the country in both public and private physician offices. Physicians are tracked for their vaccination rates and offered “prizes” and rewards for high vaccination rates. [8, 9]

To gain “buy in” from providers, the AFIX program suggests the following:

“The most logical, best researched and widely documented strategies to improve vaccination practices are unlikely to succeed unless there is buy-in from the providers. Providers are barraged with auditors, consultants, patient advocates, safety committees, licensing agencies and enforcers of local ordinances.

You can either compete for attention within this pool of ‘regulators’ or you can be valuable allies in helping the provider accomplish a mutual goal: providing all recommended vaccinations for all eligible children.” [10] (emphasis added)

Rewards for physicians who improve their vaccination rates include publication of successes in newsletters and paid immunization conference registration for office staff.

Sponsors for rewards may include local businesses, coalitions, professional organizations, managed care or HMOs and vaccine manufacturers. [11]

Their Professional Organizations And Pharma Funding

All of the physician professional organizations recommend vaccinations. As one example, the American Academy of Pediatrics holds a strong stance for total vaccine compliance.

Their organization’s home page is inundated with information on vaccines and their importance, including propaganda reminding physicians of the terrible diseases that vaccines are supposedly responsible for eliminating. [12]

However, it is also clear that the American Academy of Pediatrics is highly funded by major pharmaceutical companies, including Pfizer, Sanofi Pasteur, Merck, Meda Pharmaceutical and Astra Zeneca.

These companies profit from the sales of vaccinations and pharmaceutical drugs, which are recommended by pediatricians. [13]

Consequences Of Doctors NOT Vaccinating

Physicians can face negative consequences if they fail to comply with recommended vaccine schedules on their patients. Doctors risk being dropped from insurance companies, losing hospital privileges and becoming ostracized from their peers.

They can face losing a major source of income for their practices if they vaccinate less. For hospital-employed physicians, losing financial bonuses can be a consequence for not vaccinating. In severe cases, physicians can risk losing their medical license. [14]

Why NOT To Vaccinate

Physicians are taught well a one-sided view on vaccination safety and effectiveness. In reality, vaccines have not been proven safe or effective in preventing disease.

Vaccine charts show that most diseases were eliminated prior to vaccine creation. Improvements in water sanitation are often credited with disease elimination. [15, 16]

Documented life-threatening illnesses and death result from vaccines, challenging vaccine safety.

Outbreaks of diseases continue to occur in those vaccinated, raising the question of vaccine effectiveness. To explore further ten reasons NOT to vaccinate, see the article Ten Reasons Not to Vaccinate.

Conclusion

Doctors live in a world where vaccinations are a key part of their medical training curriculum, with the emphasis on how to achieve high vaccination rates.

Vaccine safety and effectiveness in eliminating diseases is emphasized, with no balanced teaching of vaccine dangers and questionable vaccine effectiveness.

Physicians face negative consequences if they question vaccination rates and don’t push vaccines on their patients. All professional physician organizations support strong vaccine policies, which adds additional pressure for physicians to vaccinate their patients.

Pharmaceutical companies, which make vaccines, are a primary funder for medical school education and physician professional organizations.

This funding presents a huge conflict of interest. In effect, physicians are being used as the sales force for the makers of vaccines.

The majority of physicians enter the profession to heal their patients and help humanity.

Unfortunately, because of the large influence of pharmaceutical companies, government agencies and their training, most doctors are pressured to endorse a failed vaccine policy which has proven to be more dangerous than beneficial to their patients.

Modern Medicine is a Disease

Image result for Criminal Madness of Modern Medicine

Doctors, their medical organizations and the great pharmaceutical companies practice a sinister form of medicine that directly causes suffering and pain in people’s lives. Thus, I am not surprised when James Howard Kunstler writes that modern medicine is a hostage racket:

“Medicine is now a catastrophe every bit as pernicious as the illnesses it is supposed to treat, and a grave threat to a nation that we’re supposed to care about. If you thought banking in our time was a miserable racket — which it is, of course, and by “racket” I mean a criminal enterprise — then so-called health care has it beat by a country mile, with an added layer of sadism and cruelty built into its operations. Nobody in the system will say what anything costs and nobody wants to because it would break the spell that they work in an honest, legit business. The services are provided when the customer is under the utmost duress, often life threatening, and the outcome even in a successful recovery from illness is financial ruin that leaves a lot of people better off dead. The system is one of engineered criminality. It is inflicting ruin on millions.”

The majority of people believe in the medical pharmaceutical con–that the snake-oil remedies with all the side effects will actually cure their ailments. Many people believe this fantasy and are willing to bankrupt themselves and their families in their desperate and misguided need to believe. What they are buying into is disease because modern medicine is a disease, it is a plague and people die right and left from it.

Even when there is good news, when a cancer patient recovers after being poisoned with chemotherapy and radiation the bad news usually comes later when the cancer comes back or a number of side effects like heart attacks set in.

Con Men Who Believe

The religion of medicine is slowly being broken as we discover how fantastic their fantasies are. When we find out that judges at the German Federal Supreme Court (BGH) confirmed that the measles virus does not exist what are we supposed to think about the field of pediatrics and the integrity of companies that make vaccines. There is not a single scientific study in the world which could prove the existence of the virus in any scientific literature. This raises the question of what was actually injected into millions over the past few decades. Certainly nothing good.

We have doctors who like to inject heavy metals into newborn babies and they are called pediatricians. The Chinese are finding the nerve to finger vaccines as a major cause of Autism, a disease that most often offers a lifetime of torture for families.

In the first court award in a vaccine-autism claim the family of Hannah Poling received more than $1.5 million for her care, lost earnings, and pain and suffering for the first year alone. In addition to the first year, the family will receive more than $500,000 per year to pay for Hannah’s care. In 2002, Hannah’s parents filed an autism claim in federal vaccine court. Five years later, the government settled the case before trial and had it sealed.

Lawyers representing the Cherokee Nation filed a lawsuit against major pharmaceutical companies, claiming they have pumped dangerous painkillers into Native American communities in Oklahoma.

There is no end to medical madness and all the ways it can come back to haunt you. Cases of hepatitis C in the United States have nearly tripled within a five-year period, reaching a new 15-year high of around 34,000 new hepatitis C infections in 2015, federal health officials reported. Experts attribute the higher rates to more injection drug use during the ongoing opioid epidemic.

The Americans at the CDC and FDA would rather cover it all up and let the massacre of minds and hearts continue. The FDA has actually “certified” a 2009 letter sent anonymously by FDA staff to President Obama describing “systemic corruption and wrongdoing that permeates all levels of FDA.”

A 2017 study in Africa compared a DTP/OPV (diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, oral polio) vaccinated group of children to an unvaccinated group. The authors found there was a 10-fold increase risk in death in the vaccinated groupthat received only the DPT shot, as compared to the unvaccinated group.

Merck’s Gardasil vaccine causes death, collapse and chronic illness in young women and girls, including a new, never-before described “disease” calledJuvenile ALS, a fatal condition in which the nervous system is slowly destroyed while consciousness remains unimpaired.

In the flu vaccine, there is a whopping 51,000 ppb (parts per billion) of mercury in the multi-dose flu vaccine—the most common type of flu vaccine given. How much is 51,000 ppb? It is 25,000 times the legal maximum for mercury in drinking waterestablished by the Environmental Protection Agency. Keep in mind that when you inject mercury, it is 100% absorbed so it is more toxic to inject it as compared to eating it in fish or drinking it in water. Do pediatricians rise up against the CDC and complain?

For those who think vaccines are safe and pediatricians are saints in white jackets, know that the United States government, as of August 6, 2008, paid out 1.8 billion dollars ($1,804,415,262.35) to parents who brought the cases of their children killed by vaccines or severely damaged (autism) in front of the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program.

Corporations that produce drugs that kill and hurt hundreds of thousands of people a year, even when they are properly prescribed, are protected by governments, politicians and arrogant medical officials.

Obamacare and the entire medical establishment paradigm is to force western medicine down everyone’s throat. Karl Denninger says about Obamacare, “But for virtually everyone else these “plans” are nothing more than financial rape.” “Every step of the way, the US medical system is greased to perpetuate fraud against taxpayers, against patients, against insurers,” writes Mike Shedlock.

Conclusion

Contemporary medicine has become the practice of pharmaceutical terrorism. Too many doctors think they know better about how other peoples’ lives should be lived or ended. “The FDA has assumed for itself Godlike power, requiring that its official approval be obtained before any substance can legally be used in the prevention and treatment of disease. The FDA’s legal-regulatory control therefore is totalitarian and Napoleonic in construct; what it does not explicitly permit as a medicine is implicitly forbidden,” writes Sayer Ji, founder of GreenMedInfo.com.

The worst terrorists are of course those who will not admit they are. Medicine kills more people than any other form of terrorism. Did you know that the CDC is looking for police powers for a mandatory vaccination program? Get vaccinated or go to jail!

Radiologists administer near lethal dosages meaning they put their cancer patients in front of a nuclear firing squad when they administer radiation as a cancer treatment.

When radiation therapy is used to treat cancer, a very large dose of radiation, about 5,000,000 millirem (or 5,000 rem) (50,000 mSv) is delivered to the tumor site. Below is a chart that says that each dose of radiation treatment delivers 2,000,000 millirem so with the multiple treatments most patients receive it is easy to see how fast they get up to a fatal dose. Ten thousand mSv is a fatal dose. That is 10,000,000 millirem.

The general nature of ‘evil’ is to not have consciousness of the effect that our actions have on the feelings and emotional world of others. Doctors have no excuse for how many people they kill each year, at least in America—statistics are kept and published.

The destiny of medicine is in the hands of madmen—totally deranged executives of big pharmaceutical companies in cooperation with the FDA and doctors—who are hell bent on getting as many people on their dangerous drugs as they possibly can.

Pharmaceutical terrorism is a term I coined 14 years ago when I published Cry of the Heart, a book about the tragic situation centering on the childhood vaccination program. That work reached its full expression in The Terror of Pediatric Medicine.

Dr. Viera Scheibner gives us an explanation of why some doctors have fallen to such a low state. “The inability to listen and observe the truth has created a breed of medical practitioners who inflict illness rather than healing, who become accusers rather than helpers, and who are ultimately just covering up – whether consciously or unknowingly, but with frighteningly increasing frequency – for the disasters created by their useless and deadly concoctions and sanctimonious ministrations.”

As long as Big Pharma runs medicine, we will never have a health care system that has interest in teaching people how to be healthy. When profits come from sickness, the corporations find creative ways of sickening people with their dangerous drugs, surgeries, chemotherapy and radiation treatments not to mention all their dangerous tests (CAT Scans) where they cannot even control the dosages of radiation most patients receive.

How Money From Pharmaceutical Companies Sways Doctors’ Prescriptions

If your doctor receives money or gifts from a drug company, be it payment for a lecture or a free meal, does it influence the medications he or she in turn prescribes? This represents the burning question in an industry saturated with pharmaceutical company involvement.

A ProPublica analysis revealed nearly nine in 10 cardiologists, and seven in 10 internists and family practitioners, included in their study received payments from drug or device companies in 2014.[1] But the analysis didn’t stop there.

It also looked into whether or not such payments were associated with prescribing practices, and here’s where things got interesting.

Doctors Who Received Drug-Company Money Prescribed More Brand-Name Drugs

ProPublica analyzed the prescribing habits of doctors who wrote at least 1,000 prescriptions in the Medicare Part D drug program. The doctors belonged to five common specialties: psychiatry, cardiovascular disease, family medicine, internal medicine and ophthalmology.

Not only was the receipt of drug-company money associated with a higher percentage of brand-name drug prescriptions, but the prescriptions rose with the amount of money received.[2]

The analysis included promotional speaking, consulting, business travel, meals, royalties and gifts as forms of drug company payments. Those who received more than $5,000 from industry in 2014 prescribed the most brand-name drugs. According to the analysis:

“In all cases, the group receiving larger payments had a higher brand-name prescribing rate on average.

Additionally, the type of payment made a difference: those who received meals alone from companies had a higher rate of brand-name prescribing than physicians who received no payments, and those who received speaking payments had a higher rate than those who received other types of payments.”

Are Drug-Company Payments ‘Thinly Veiled Kickbacks?’

Dr. Aaron Kesselheim, an associate professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School, told The Atlantic regarding the featured study:[3]

“It again confirms the prevailing wisdom … that there is a relationship between payments and brand-name prescribing … This feeds into the ongoing conversation about the propriety of these sorts of relationships.

Hopefully we’re getting past the point where people will say, ‘Oh, there’s no evidence that these relationships change physicians’ prescribing practices.”

Indeed, this is far from the first time that such payments have been linked to prescribing practices.

A 2010 study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine also found that nearly 84 percent of physicians surveyed reported some type of relationship with industry during the previous year, and those with such a relationship were more likely to prescribe a brand-name drug even when a generic alternative was available.[4]

The finding isn’t only relevant for patients, who may be paying more unnecessarily for brand-name drugs, but also for taxpayers who spend billions each year subsidizing Medicare Part D. At least 1 in 4 U.S. prescriptions are paid for by Medicare.

Meanwhile, it’s worth repeating that the reason drug companies pay doctors and aggressively promote certain medications is not to benefit patients; it’s to benefit their bottom line. And there’s often a fine line between legitimate payments and illegal kickbacks. ProPublica noted:[5]

” … [F]ederal whistle-blower lawsuits against several pharmaceutical companies have alleged that payments are little more than thinly veiled kickbacks, which are illegal. Companies have paid billions of dollars to settle the cases.”

Drug Companies Heavily Promote ‘Me-Too Drugs’ to Doctors

Past research by ProPublica revealed the drugs most aggressively promoted to physicians, and they’re not medical breakthroughs or even, generally, top sellers.

Instead, they tend to be drugs that are newer to the market, sometimes underperforming and often face competition from other older, readily available drugs.

Dubbed “me-too” drugs, their makers may claim they carry fewer side effects, work faster or have other advantages over existing drugs on the market.[6]

Another ProPublica study revealed that top prescribers of some of the most heavily marketed drugs tended to receive promotional speaking payments from the drugs’ makers.[7]

Would You Still Trust Your Doctor If He or She Accepts Drug Company Payments?

In 2012, research showed that accepting gifts from the pharmaceutical industry does have implications for the doctor-patient relationship, and “doing so can undermine trust and affect patients’ intent to adhere to medical recommendations.”[8]

Not surprisingly, most people surveyed in one study said they would have less trust in their physician if they learned he or she accepted gifts worth more than $100 from the pharmaceutical industry, or went on industry-sponsored trips or sporting events.

One-quarter even said they would be less likely to take a prescribed medication “if their physician had recently accepted a gift in return for listening to a pharmaceutical representative’s presentation about that drug.”[9]

It’s no wonder that most physicians would rather their patients not know about any kickbacks they’ve received from the drug industry. But now that this has become public information, it may very well prompt some physicians to cut their ties to the industry.

Unfortunately, quite often — definitely too frequently for comfort — treatment recommendations are biased in favor of a specific drug simply because people making the decisions stand to profit from it.

If you find your doctor is receiving large amounts of money from industry, you may want to find another doctor or get a second opinion. At the very least, if you have concerns you might open a conversation about whether the drugs you’ve been prescribed are the best choices for you.

Whatever your health problem might be, I strongly recommend digging below the surface using all the resources available to you; including your own commonsense and reason, true independent experts’ advice and others’ experiences to determine what medical treatment or advice will be best for you.

You Can Find Out If Your Doctor Accepts Drug-Company Money (and How Much)

According to ProPublica’s “Dollar for Docs” website, which you can use to find out if your doctor accepts money from the drug industry, more than 1,500 companies have made payments to nearly 686,000 doctors, totaling close to $3.5 billion.[10]

You can also find out if your doctor receives payments from Big Pharma by visiting OpenPaymentsData.CMS.gov  This site has tallied nearly $6.5 billion in payments since 2013.[11] It hasn’t always been possible to find out what gifts your own doctor might be accepting.

The Physician Payments Sunshine Act, which is part of the Affordable Care Act, went into effect in 2013. For the first time, the Act requires drug and medical device makers to collect and disclose any payments of more than $10 made to physicians and teaching hospitals.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is in charge of implementing the Sunshine Act, which it has done via its Open Payments Program. You can easily search the site to find out what (if any) payments your doctor has received, along with the nature of the payments.
