What is Delayed/Selective Vaccination?
Delayed vaccinations are schedules for immunizations that are timed to ensure that children will receive all vaccinations that are currently considered to be necessary for proper health. However, delayed schedules do not follow the standard timing set by the Government and CDC. Instead, parents make the decision about when and if a vaccination will be given to their child. Delayed vax'ing also involves determining the order in which the vaccinations will take place, which may be different from what is recommended by most doctors.
Why Delay My Child's Vaccinations?
There are a few reasons why a parent would choose to lat least look into delayed vaccinations. Basically, the idea is that overall the delay will prove to be beneficial for the child from both a physical and an emotional point of view.
- to avoid dangerous side effects of the toxins present in vaccinations.
- to avoid emotional trauma caused by the administration of the vaccination (after 3 vaccinations, all of my children learn to actually hate needles, AND the doctor giving it to them! as soon as we step into the doctors office, screaming and crying ensue).
What are the Adverse Effects of Vaccinations?
- Ever since mass vaccination of infants began, reports of serious brain, cardiovascular, metabolic and other injuries dramatically increased. In fact, pertussis vaccine has been used to induce encephalomyelitis (inflammation of the brain and spinal cord).
- Federal health officials have logged 8,000 “adverse events” in girls and women injected with the Merck & Co. vaccine introduced two years ago, more than 500 of them from New York. Drug regulators have received thousands of reports of serious side effects, ranging from paralysis, heart attack - and even death - in the two years since its launch in the USA.
- FDA has been reviewing reports of abnormal behavior and other brain effects in more than 1,800 children who had taken the flu medicine Tamiflu. The symptoms have included convulsions, delirium or delusion, and death.
According to Dr. Bob Sears of AskDrSears.com, mercury was removed from virtually all vaccines in 2002, but can still be found in significant amounts in some brands of the flu shot and some older versions of the plain tetanus and diphtheria/tetanus shots. Mercury can still be found in trace amounts in one brand of the DTaP vaccine and some brands of the flu shot and newer plain tetanus and diphtheria/tetanus shots.
Possible Short Term Side Effects
- Skin Rashes
- Nausea, Vomitting, Diarrhea
- Coughs, Runny Noses
- Ear Infections
- Loss of Muscle Control
- Brain Inflammation
- Hemolytic Anemia
- Sudden Infant Death
- Possible Long Term Side Effects
- Brain Damage
- Other Severe Neurological Damage
- Allergies and Hypersensitivities
- General Damage to the Immune System
- Incomplete or Arrested Development of the Immune System
- Auto-Immune Diseases
- Stealth Viruses
Contrary to popular belief, vaccines do NOT give permanent immunity from the diseases they vaccinate against. Most studies show that a high percentage of people who were vaccinated as children have no stored immunity by the time they reach adulthood. If exposed to the diseases at this later age, they usually have a much more serious case of these illness, which can be fatal more often than when the diseases are acquired naturally as children.
Children are being exposed to the risks of vaccination without the benefits of either short-term or long-term immunity. For example, in the last 30 years every case polio in the U.S. has been among previously vaccinated individuals.
The side effects from vaccinations appear to be higher than the risks of serious side effects from the naturally acquired diseases (ie. in conditions like auto-immune diseases, diabetes, and cancer, all of which are now at epidemic levels where vaccinations are widespread).

Dr. Bob Sears recommends giving only two vaccines at a time, as opposed to as many as six with a standard schedule, to allow a baby's body to detoxify the vaccine chemicals and reduce the chance of chemical overload from grouping too many chemicals together at once. He recommends giving only one aluminum-containing vaccine at a time, as opposed to the standard four, to reduce the toxicity of aluminum on the baby's brain, and only one live-virus vaccine at a time to allow the baby's immune system to better cope with the effects of the active virus.
Elizabeth Cohen, CNN medical correspondent, recommends delaying the newborn Hepatitis B vaccine to avoid the common side effects of fever, lethargy, and feeding problems. Hepatitis B is primarily a sexually transmitted disease which infants are highly unlikely to contract! It is further recommended to split combined vaccines into individual "shots" when available to decrease the chance of negative reactions. Check titers (blood immunity levels) before giving booster shots. Some children do not require boosters according to standard immunization schedules, because their original vaccinations are still working.
The 12 Childhood Vaccines
- Hepatitis B (HepB)
- Rotavirus (Rota)
- Diphtheria, Tetanus, Pertussis (DTaP)
- Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib)
- Pneumococcal (PCV)
- Inactivated Poliovirus (IPV)
- Measles, Mumps, Rubella (MMR)
- Varicella (Chickenpox)
- Hepatitis A (HepA)
- Meningococcal (MCV4)
- Human Papillomavirus (HPV) - ie. Gardasil
Common, but potentially serious, diseases include pneumococcal disease, pertussis (whooping cough), rotavirus, and influenza. Common, but less often serious, diseases include chickenpox and hepatitis A.
Rare, but potentially serious, diseases include tetanus, diphtheria, haemophilus influenza type B, meningococcal disease, poliovirus, measles, mumps, and rubella.
Sexually transmitted diseases, very rare in children, include hepatitis B and human papillomavirus.
Alternatives to Vaccination
Beyond vaccines, early germ exposure and a eating immune boosting foods improve a child's immune function.
- No vaccinations until a child is two years old.
- No vaccines that contain thimerosal (mercury).
- No live virus vaccines (except for smallpox, should it recur).
These vaccines should be given one at a time, every six months, beginning at age 2:
- Pertussis (acellular, not whole cell)
- Polio (the Salk vaccine, cultured in human cells)
Basically, In a Nutshell...
Delayed vax'ing is giving fewer shots over a longer period of time, to reduce the risk of adverse side effects and to give the child's immune system a better chance to cope with toxic chemicals and live viruses. Parents who understand vaccines the preventable diseases that vaccines cause can make informed decisions regarding their child's vaccination schedule.
The whole idea of vaccinating overlooks the CRUCIAL importance of actually catching the childhood diseases as part of the normal development of our immune system. If our immune systems are never properly trained and allowed to exercise, how can it do its job throughout our lifetimes.
