The Side Effects of Vaccines - How High is the Risk?

  • Published: 12 May 2019

    Vaccines are one of our best tools to prevent dangerous diseases, but they come with side effects. So would it be safer not to vaccinate?

  • Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell

    Dive into sources and further reading here:

    Vaccines and their side effects are a hard topic to cover – we know we keep saying this, but this case especially, there were a lot of things to consider. You can’t blame people for being worried, so we wanted to take their concerns seriously.

    Because it is impossible to cover everything there is to know about vaccines in a ten minute video our sources are extra extensive and explain a lot of aspects in more detail, with an extra focus on further reading.

    So if you want to dive in deeper or have more arguments at hand for your next heated discussion, here you go.

      I am constantly being called an "anti-vaxxer" and a "science denialist" just for pointing out that it's a bad idea to allow governments make sticking needles in your children mandatory. They also called me a "conspiracy theorist" for pointing out that some vaccines used mercury compounds as preservatives.

            People shouldn’t judge anti-vaxers since they may have their reasons
            For instance my brother got serious allergic reactions and poisoning from vaccines (Confirmed many many times) and has struggled now for over 15 years with his liver suffering from the poisoning (the rest if the side effects are more complicated). And we had to go to hundreds of doctors and he has recieved hundreds of treatments, for this reason we didn’t vax for a few years but are considering going back to vaccinating, he is doing well and is almost cured.
            Please don’t judge or hate with comments and replies
            This was just me explaining that some anti-vaxers have reasons
            And we shouldn’t make fun or judge people no-matter what they believe!

              How to stop anti-vaxxers:

              Call them pro-disease
              They hate being made fun of so if they vaccinate their kids they won't be called pro-disease anymore and finally understand

              There's a 50/50 chance it'll work

                    When I first read about vaccines as a child, it was about rabies, and the vaccine is like a WARNING poster to your body. When you get a specific vaccine, it gives your body a 'heads-up' to a specific disease to prepare against. Something similar to this video. It was honestly shocking to see how far measles has rebounded because people have stopped themselves and their kids from vaccinations in this year alone! People who rely on other's vaccinations end up getting their kids sick because they are too young for the Warning posters! In a perfect world, someone would create a specific gene that makes us adapt to illnesses spontaneously, and prevent us from getting sick ever again, because our memory cells can mutate like a virus and drug-resistant bacteria.

                                  the main goal of vaccinating is to remove a certain disease from the landmass, and preferably the entire world. This has been done several times before, for example the plague. But because of certain individuals that don't vaccinate, this can't really happen, thus causing diseases to remain. There are also people that can't vaccinate, often due to being immunocompromised, too young or too old. These people could easily die, simply because some mongoloid anti-vaxer sneezed in their faces. Vaccinations should be mandatory for everyone, except for the immunocompromised that run the risk of dying if they did vaccinate.

                                  Also, so what if your kid is autistic? They are basically saying that they don't want autistic people. Anti-vaxxers are even worse than we think.

                                    You know being autistic and hearing that parents would rather have their children die then "catch autism" makes me feel a bit disheartened if im being honest.

                                    At the end of the day from my angle it looks like these mothers want a trophy daughter/son to brag about, why they would brag about putting their own kid in physical danger most likely as its "against the norm" therefore they will be noticed easier, some people believe that big pharma is plotting some insidious plan and thats why they dont vaccinate others just use that as a cover from the reality of the situation I feel.

Where I'm from, we talked about this about two years ago, in seventh grade, when I was thirteen.

                                                In the past vaccines had mercury and more aluminium so it is proven that at least for that reason they were poisonous. Also courts secretly pay out compensation to people for deaths, autism and so on.

                                                  Vaccines in the past contained a non-toxic variant of mercury. it was removed to ease public opinion. Vaccines still contain about 100-150 grams of aluminum but you actually ingest more aluminum from the foods you eat in about a week. This minuscule amount of aluminum in vaccines wont harm the body in any way.

                                                Skepticism is healthy. Especially when it’s about staying healthy. It’s like religion. I believe in God but I am not going to give over all my faith to a book or an institution. It’s common sense. Of medicine in the past historians say the people often got better despite the medicine or got worse because of it. But now there is also the big business aspect and the planning from the elite to reduce the population. That easier to prove from listening to Bill Gates than the veracity of his vaccines.

                                                  Business aspect? You do realise that most developed countries give out vaccinations for free, or at a minuscule cost? And what do you mean "to reduce the population"? Death caused by vaccinations are SO rare. If anyone was trying to reduce the population (no one is btw), they aren't doing a great job at it. You seem like the biggest conspiracy nut I've ever seen. Don't go around spreading false information.

                                                                Ah........the old "there is nothing we can do = so why try" rationalization.  lol!  The diseases are out there as noted.  Accordingly we can either do nothing thereby allowing them to propagate - harming and killing countless lives to no real purpose in the process - or we can act.  We choose the latter for the benefit of all.

                                                                Smallpox was eradicated.  Of the 3 strains of Polio = one has been eradicated, another has not been seen for a few years now and is likely eradicated - while the 3rd strain now only exists in a few rural areas of a couple of poor Third World nations.  Accordingly we could see Polio eradicated within this current generation as well - IF - people will simple vaccinate.

                                                                Yet today we are seeing a resurgence of measles - an infectious disease which was also on it's way out by the way = and all thanks to people refusing to vaccinate under various rationalizations.  That is a travesty because like with say smallpox = the MeV measles virus is "human specific".  That means it can only propagate in humans and if everyone got their MMR = it too would be eradicated from the world as it would have no hosts to keep it alive.

                                                                Moral of the story:  Influenza since you referenced it is one of the worst infectious diseases from an epidemiological standpoint.  It can be lethal + it is highly mutable "jumping" between species via zoonosis + it is easily spread via airborne and surface contact. 

                                                                So while the Flu vaccine might not always be highly "effective" - it varies from year to year as the vaccine makeup changes based upon predictions of what will emerge - it never the less improves your odds of survival.  Lots of otherwise "healthy" people die from Influenza each year.  Last Flu season the CDC estimated ~80,000 people died of Influenza in the US.  What we do know is that people who were vaccinated - even if you still catch the Flu = tend to have a milder case of it and accordingly a better chance for recovery.  The vast majority of people who die from infectious diseases = unvaccinated.  Have a nice day.

                                                                Having difficultly reading English perhaps??  How about a reality break.  Vaccines = are made to be tolerated by as many people as possible.............period - got it.  It is physically impossible to create vaccines based upon individual makeup = because each person alive has slight differences in their genomes.  Accordingly one can not create a vaccine to take all those differences into account = impossible.

                                                                Meanwhile vaccines as noted employ common substances with a track record of efficacy and safety.  If 10,000 children are vaccinated and 9,950 are fine while the other 50 react harshly - that does not make the vaccine bad = it just means those 50 have some *INTERNAL* variation within their immune system which results in their inability to tolerate what all of the others could.  That makes it *THEIR* fault and not the vaccine's.

                                                                Moral of the story:  you are at risk regardless because you do not live in a vacuum.  Accordingly infectious pathogens exist in nature -------> thus they exist in human populations = thus they are always out there and you are therefore always at risk. 

                                                                So it is traumatic enough to give an infant/child a shot.  It attempt to "screen" their genomic makeup to ascertain if they have some molecular issue with being exposed to vaccines as well as allergies would necessitate expensive testing as well as far more invasive procedures = thereby increasing the cost and trauma to the child.  Better to simply vaccinate with the understanding that >90% will have no lasting problems and accordingly help to maintain the herd immunity which ultimately protects all. 

                                                                For that small percent who have issues they as noted reflect people who likely would react similarly or worse upon catching what vaccines prevent anyways. So they get a shot and react - OR - they catch the disease = and still react.  The shot however improves their odds as we see less adverse reaction to vaccination than from the actual diseases.  You must look at the big picture here as vaccination is about the group dynamic as much as the person being vaccinated.  Have a nice day.

                                                                So in the past they poisoned us with dangerous mercury and more aluminium? So you have admitted their guilt. They are still poisoning us. Even more. Or is it just that they stay one step ahead of popular scientific knowledge. Should we trust Big Pharma and it's links to the Nazis etc. Read the book Bad Pharma. Who pays to produce these cartoons? Yes - there are bad and crazy people in power at the highest levels who instead of toothbrush moustaches have cultural ways to indoctrinate. Listen to experts, because simplified explanation can be deceiving.
                                                                Mercury and aluminium, and things like flouride, which is also a known brain toxin which is in our daily water (first added in the concentration camps to make the prisoners docile) and toothpaste have precursors...building blocks...
                                                                chemicals which contribute towards their formation. 1+1=2.
                                                                We are talking also about about injecting new born babies with many, many weird things at the same time, including viruses or parts of viruses when their immune systems are not developed so again we are talking about the combined effect of these things. If the anti-vaccine lobby is not a dumb fashion then it's arguments are worth investigating. I am not scientist but there are many scientists on that side or at least with many serious issues to raise and if more were paid by the state or Big Pharma then there would be more. The burden of proof is on the person who wants to inject millions of why is it so often the sceptics who are having to justify their position? Because many simplly believe in authority. Be careful with that. The say nuclear power is safe but look what happened in Chernobyl or Fukushima. Science is good but as it is driven by finance and investors and maybe people who belong to an elite who want to reduce the population, we have to be more than happy shoppers.
                                                                The issue about many african countries going to court over masses of tetanus viruses containing sterilisation agents is common knowledge among well-informed people. So it depends what sources are official.
                                                                But then again, ask your doctor about cancer?
                                                                It is now becoming clear that Cancer is often triggered by "harmless" viruses....and one day it will be common sense will catch up and say that it is logical. Meanwhile people are dying and the cancer industry is lagging behind the facts. Perhaps because if people can help prevent cancer by common anti-virals such as cat's claw and raw garlic then why do doctors never prescribe natural preventative medicine to their patients?
                                                                Why do schools not provide a few pieces of fruit free for every child?

In the case of vaccines, they used a molecule that contained mercury, that wasn't as dangerous for human consumption. To best demonstrate this, I will list two elements: Chlorine and Sodium. Both of these elements are EXTREMELY toxic and/or damaging for human consumption, but if they react with one another to form the molecule sodium chloride, it's completely safe to eat. In fact, it's table salt, that is vital in the human body.

But if you look at the numbers, you will realize that those are only two examples out of around 450 reactors, that are: better, safer, smarter and more effienct than Chernobyl and Fukushima, people learn from their mistakes. Besides Fukushima was caused by a tsunami and an earthquake, it's not like it wouldn't be just has dangerous iif the reactor wasn't there.
                                                                  You seem to not understand chemistry a whole lot since: dangerous by itself =/= dangerous combined with other things. You said aluminium is a brain toxin, correct, but geuss what, a lot of electronics usess aluminium a lot, because it's amazing. Mercury WAS not "IS", which means they USED to use mercury in vaccines, yes, did you know that people once thought that cutting off your legs was a great way to cure a small disease. Mercury is currently used for electronics and some streetlamps. (people once thought drinking pure mercury was healthy) what i am saying is that NOOOOOO we don't use mercury in vaccines, we used to do that, because we didn't realize how crazy dangerous that is, that is why we stopped doing it, if a company tries to sell a vaccine with mercury in it, customers would feel the side effects, sue the company for breaking the law, and then that company would stop using that vaccine. THERE ARE NO BENEFITS TO PUTTING MURCURY IN VACCINES IF THEY WANT MONEY. the "elite" doesn't wanna cut the population down, because that means: less workes = less money = worse living standarts = angry population = current elite gets boned, very harshly i might add. Also flourine is a natural mineral that strenghts our teeth, it's not supposed to go into the brain, that is why there is a legal maximum in each country for how much flourine you can put in a productl if you look on the back of that toothpaste of yours, it will say how much is in it, if it goes over the maximum sue the company for doing something illegal. Uder a certain amount of a "toxin" it is littleraly harmless.
                                                                  vaccinces are weird, it's water mixed a very weakened version of the disease. it's very natural, some time ago, a lot of kids died due to diseases, (any historian will tell you the same) but when medicine and vaccines came, only a very very very small amount of kids died because of diseases. A kids body is the perfect victim for any disease, that is why they get sick alot, they are under development.
                                                                  the scientist on the anti-vaccine side, very few (if any) of them medical professionals and again, it's a small amount so logically you should trust the masses on this one, since one side has a few tousands, they other has tens of millions scientists on their side.
                                                                  science is NOT born out of greed, it just happens that you can use science to make money like: when an engineer invents a new type of electric engine that is safer, faster and cheaper, off course companies would want to try and sell that. If scientists have to change the world, the best way is to make something both better, faster, safer and cheaper than the product that came before it. No one wants to buy something that is more expensive if what they have is already fine enough. so scientists make them cheaper so people buy their new climate friendly motor, insted of the people just saying "I wont buy it because is it too expensive"

                                                                  also things don't come for free, inventions and new science costs money, thanks to: tools, material and a lot of time. They can't give them away for free, else they wouldn't be able to make new inventions and discover things such as physics and chemistry, which will help us make new tecnologi and medicine, which will raise living standarts, and reduce children dying from a preventable disease
