In the United States, the Hepatitis B (Hep B) vaccine is scheduled to be given to babies at birth. Since babies do not normally go out and indulge themselves in high risk behavior such as tattooing, body piercing, IV drug use, sharing needles with others, having sex with multiple partners, or engaging in any high risk activity other than being born in a hospital, and “the duration of protection after hepatitis B vaccination of infants is unknown,” why give them the shot?

Here is the CDC vaccination schedule, with the Hep B vaccine to be given at birth and several boosters thereafter:

Here are the major risk factors for contracting Hep B:


  • Hemodialysis
  • Patients of custodial institutions for developmentally disabled
  • Exposure to blood/blood clot products
  • Needle-stick injury
  • Sexual activity with multiple (heterosexual or homosexual) partners
  • IV drug use
  • Infants of HBV-positive mothers
  • Tattooing
  • Body piercing

Newborn babies ARE NOT high risk individuals! And to receive the recommended 4 doses all within a 24 week period? That’s a whole lot of aluminum and formaldehyde for a baby from birth to 6 months old.

The vaccine is recommended for people of all ages, especially those at an increased risk of getting the infection. Those at an increased risk include health care personnel, laboratory workers who handle blood and patient specimens, police, fire and emergency medical personnel who give first aid treatment, hemophiliacs, dialysis patients, people who live with or spend much time with people with persistent hepatitis B infections, people with multiple sex partners, men who have sex with men, sex workers, injection drug abusers, and people traveling to high-risk areas.

The question that begs answering is if well-intentioned health care workers are vaccinating babies because those babies are birthed in an environment that is rife with diseases that they can contract FROM those health care workers, who in turn are supposedly protecting themselves and others by doing a first strike vaccination campaign on newborns?

I’ve got a novel idea! DO NOT body pierce your baby, tattoo him/her, let him/her have sex with multiple partners, travel to high risk areas, or be exposed to dangerous drugs and needles through a bogus vaccine program!

Does it make any sense at all to subject newborn babies to substances that contain the following ingredients? Does it make any sense at all to subject ANYONE to this?

In lower risk populations, such as the United States, where transmission of HBV primarily occurs in older individuals, newborn immunization is also used to prevent the small number of cases transmitted in early childhood. Also when the hepatitis B vaccination is initiated at birth, there is an increased likelihood that the child will complete the series.

Note that it says “low risk” and “small number” of cases transmitted in early childhood. And this is supposed to be worth the following recognized risks. You know, the ones they tell you about:

SIDE EFFECTS: Pain/soreness/redness/swelling at the injection site, fever, headache, tiredness, sore throat, nausea, diarrhea, loss of appetite, and dizziness may occur. If any of these effects persist or worsen, tell your doctor or pharmacist promptly.

Fainting right after the injection may occur. Your healthcare provider will usually watch you for 15 minutes after the injection to monitor you for this reaction.

And the best advice of all:

Remember that your doctor has prescribed this medication because he or she has judged that the benefit to you is greater than the risk of side effects. Many people using this medication do not have serious side effects.

Really? The doctors have judged that your newborn’s risk of getting Heb B, which is negligible, is greater than the risk of any number of debilitating side effects that he/she might contract due to the vaccine. And just how does your doctor know if your baby is “allergic” to any of the toxic ingredients in that vaccine? Does the word NEWBORN mean anything? I guess they just stick them and find out later. If your baby has a reaction to the aluminum and formaldehyde cocktail that your “health care provider” just jabbed him/her with, then that must be an abnormal allergic reaction, not a normal reaction to poison. After all, black is white, white is black, and a poison cocktail is good for you if you call it a vaccine.

PRECAUTIONS: Before getting hepatitis B vaccine, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or to yeast; or other vaccines; or if you have any other allergies. Some vials and prefilled syringes may use latex rubber stoppers or plungers. Tell your doctor if you are allergic to latex. This product may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details.

And don’t forget that this vaccine is genetically engineered:

1981 A Triumph of Biotechnology

The world’s first genetically engineered vaccine against a human disease–Hepatitis B–is considered one of biotechnology’s greatest triumphs. The achievement stands on the shoulders of pioneering work by UW genetics professor Benjamin Hall and then-postdoctoral researcher Gustav Ammerer to develop genetic engineering techniques using yeast cultures to produce proteins of interest.

Dangers of the genetic modification process as used to create vaccines include the possibility of activating latent viruses:

Investigating Viruses in Cells Used to Make Vaccines; and Evaluating the Potential Threat Posed by Transmission of Viruses to Humans

Virus-based vaccines are made in living cells (cell substrates). Some manufacturers are investigating the use of new cell lines to make vaccines. The continual growth of cell lines ensures that there is a consistent supply of the same cells that can yield high quantities of the vaccine.

In some cases the cell lines that are used might be tumorigenic, that is, they form tumors when injected into rodents. Some of these tumor-forming cell lines may contain cancer-causing viruses that are not actively reproducing. Such viruses are hard to detect using standard methods. These latent, or “quiet,” viruses pose a potential threat, since they might become active under vaccine manufacturing conditions. Therefore, to ensure the safety of vaccines, our laboratory is investigating ways to activate latent viruses in cell lines and to detect the activated viruses, as well as other unknown viruses, using new technologies. We will then adapt our findings to detect viruses in the same types of cell substrates that are used to produce vaccines. We are also trying to identify specific biological processes that reflect virus activity.

So, with all of the negative aspects of this vaccine, why give it to newborns?

Hepatitis B is endemic throughout the world and is a serious medical problem in population groups at increased risk. Because vaccination limited to high-risk individuals has failed to substantially lower the overall incidence of hepatitis B infection, both the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) and the Committee on Infectious Diseases of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) have also endorsed universal infant immunization as part of a comprehensive strategy for the control of hepatitis B infection.


Hey, if it doesn’t work, we’ll just use more of it on more people. THAT should make it work. And oh yeah, we’ll start at birth, and make sure that everyone everywhere is vaccinated. What is wrong with this logic? And just what will these people say when this universal infant immunization program is proven to NOT lower the overall incidence of Hep B infection after our children have been compromised with a dangerous genetically engineered vaccine that starts our lives out under the thumb of Big Pharma and the allopathic medical establishment, and ensures that we remain sickly and dependent on expensive drugs to treat all of the illnesses that we contract due to compromised immune systems that were attacked at our very birth?

Not to worry, I’m sure the statistics will be created to let us know that nothing is wrong, it is all in your head, just line up for the jab and keep your mouth shut if you know what is good for you. In a pig’s eye! I know what a lethal weapon looks like, whether or not it comes wrapped in a pretty package with a smiling doctor’s face on it, and I’m having no part of it.

Think before you allow vaccination of your newborn baby. Not everything the good ol’ doc says is correct, or even ethical. In fact, he/she might not have even read the ingredient insert before the jab. It is up to us to take care of ourselves and not simply go along with the program while others get rich off of our ignorance.
