The Depart of Justice issues a report on vaccine injuries and deaths every quarter to the Advisory Commission on Childhood Vaccines (click on “Meeting Book PDF – 11 MB” and start reading at page 51.) This March 5, 2015 report states that there were 117 cases for vaccine injuries and deaths compensated from 11/16/2014 to 2/15/2015.
92 of the settlements were listed in the report, giving the name of the vaccines, the injury, and the amount of time the case was pending before settlement. Five of those settlements were for deaths linked to vaccines, with three deaths related to the flu shot. 73 of the 92 settlements were for injuries and deaths due to the flu shot, and the majority of flu shot injuries were for Guillain-Barré Syndrome.
These quarterly reports on vaccine injuries and death settlements from the U.S. vaccine court are seldom, if ever, reported in the mainstream media. We report them here at Health Impact News. Here is the March 5, 2015 report:
we petition the obama administration to:
PROHIBIT ANY LAWS MANDATING THE FORCE AND REQUIREMENT OF VACCINATIONS OF ANY KIND.
No human being should be FORCED to be vaccinated against their will and/or personal/religious beliefs. I petition against making vaccinations of any kind mandatory. This includes forcing children to be vaccinated to attend public schools, activities, and daycare centers. This also includes adults working in the public or private sector.
Signatures needed by March 06, 2015 to reach goal of 100,000

When one looks at the current FIVE new bills being proposed in Illinois to mandate and increase vaccinations for children, one has to wonder who is really profiting from these proposed new laws??
If you live in Illinois, do you believe that you need a new law in your state to protect DENTISTS from any liability due to injuries resulting from vaccines when they give them away FREE in public clinics? From the National Vaccine Information Center:
SB 751 is scheduled for a hearing in the Judiciary Committee on 3/3/2015.
http://www.ilga.gov/senate/committees/hearing.asp?CommitteeID=1598 – hearing information
SB 751 was introduced on 2/3/2015 and referred to assignments. The bill is sponsored by Senator Michael Hastings.
The bill provides that a dentist who administers vaccinations at a public health clinic without charge to the patient or the receipt of a fee or compensation from that clinic, shall not be liable for civil damages as a result of his or her acts or omissions in providing vaccinations, except for willful or wanton misconduct.
Nothing in the law requires a dentist to assess the medical history of the person being vaccinated, to provide Vaccine Information Statements, to explain risks of the vaccines and how to identify an adverse reaction or how to file a claim with VAERS.
Why should dentists be administering vaccines to begin with? Who really profits from this bill?
The hearing is TOMORROW March 3rd. Please go to the National Vaccine Information Center Portal, register, and then click on the details for this bill and contact the bill sponsors and your own representative.
Here is a list of the other current proposed bills to increase market distribution of vaccines in Illinois:
SB 1410, Bill to Severely Restrict Religious Exemptions to Vaccination
SB 1410 was introduced on 2/20/2015. The bill is sponsored by Senator John G. Mulroe. This bill would severely restrict the current religious exemption to vaccination for school children in Illinois.
The bill would require the Department of Health to create an objection form. That form would have to be signed by a religious official attesting to a bona fide religious objection whose signature must be notarized. The bill also requires the State Board of Education to publish the exemption information on its Internet website.
According to an article in the Daily Herald by Erin Hagerty, Senate Republican Leader Christine Radogno also filed legislation to further the discussion on who is required to receive vaccinations.
“Sen. Radogno’s goals are similar to Mulroe’s,” said Radogno spokeswoman Patty Schuh. “We need to tighten the rules and laws that govern the vaccination process.” http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20150220/news/150229827/

HR 184, Resolution to encourage vaccines for children, adolescents, and adults
HR 184 is a resolution, so if passed it does not have any force of law. Resolutions are used to make a statement and have a discussion on an issue. This resolution encourages the continued use of vaccines for children, adolescents, and adults to ensure the safety and health of the citizens of IL.
The resolution presents an opportunity to educate the sponsor, Rep. Bellock, and other legislators.

SB 1776 Changes the wording of the religious exemption to vaccination
Sb 1776 is sponsored by Senator Christine Radogno.
SB 1776 changes the wording of the current religious exemption from ” on religious grounds” to “grounds that the examinations or immunizations conflict with their religious tenants or practices”.

“We need to tighten the rules and laws that govern the vaccination process.” Quote in news article by Senator Radogno in news article http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20150220/news/150229827/
HJ26, HR 144 Resolution to encourage higher rates of vaccinations
HD 26 and HR 144 are both resolutions sponsored by Representative Michael J. Zalewski. Resolutions do not enact or change laws. However, these resolutions are asking the Illinois Department of Public Health to promulgate administrative rules pursuant to the requirement for health examinations and immunizations within the School Code and to expedite this process in order to have such rules in place for the 2015-16 school year.
These resolutions are very one-sided concerning measles and measles vaccine safety and efficacy.

Saying NO To Vaccines
By Dr. Sherri Tenpenny
You have legal options!
Health Impact News Editor Comments
As we have previously reported, the state of Oregon wants to take away the right to informed consent and vaccine choice and mandate vaccines for all children statewide. The bill was introduced by Elizabeth Steiner Hayward, a State Senator in Oregon who is also a medical doctor.
The public attended a hearing on the bill last week, and much of it was video-taped. In the clip above, attorney Robert Snee from Portland is shown addressing the Senate Committee on Health Care, which includes Hayward.
Attorney Snee begins in this clip by addressing the American Medical Association’s published Code of Ethics which states physicians may claim a religious or philosophical reason not to be immunized. Snee makes the point that if physicians have the right to such exemptions, how is it legal to take that right away from citizens of the State?
Attorney Snee then quoted from an article published in the American Academy of Family Physicians featuring Oregon Senator Elizabeth Steiner Hayward, M.D. In the article, Hayward is addressing the issues she was facing with taking drugs during pregnancy. Dr. Hayward suffers from multiple sclerosis (MS), and according to the article abstained from taking her MS drugs during pregnancy because of her presumed concern over her unborn child.
After her second child was born, according to the article, she consulted with a neurologist about her options in breastfeeding her second child:
The subspecialist informed Steiner Hayward in no uncertain terms that she was going to start interferon therapy immediately and she would not be allowed to breastfeed.
But Steiner Hayward had other ideas.
“Breastfeeding protects against autoimmune disorders, and I have MS,” she said, laughing and shaking her head. “So I did the research and told her I thought interferon was too big to get into breast milk and that I was going to go ahead and breastfeed.
“She, of course, thought I was crazy and told me I was not to do that. So I went out and found another neurologist who respected the fact that I was an FP and I knew what I was talking about, and he agreed that (breastfeeding) was OK.” (Source.)
At this point in his testimony, Attorney Snee was stopped by Steiner Hayward who was sitting just across from him, in a very visibly upset tone, claiming that the attorney was “impugning her integrity” by relaying the story from the American Academy of Family Physicians article.
She then went on to explain why she disagreed with her doctor’s recommendation not to take her MS drugs and continue breastfeeding, based on her own research and what she felt was “best for my child.” She states:
So I would be very grateful if you did not take my decision, my personal decision about my medical care out of context.
Attorney Snee responded that he had no intention of impugning anyone, but that he was simply pointing out that the sponsor of the bill in Oregon who wanted to take away the right to informed consent on medical procedures such as vaccines made a decision to disagree with a medical treatment that affected someone else, and that her right to do so was the same right citizens were seeking to retain for themselves.
Watch the video above. This is a perfect example of medical tyranny in action in the United States of America, happening right in the legislative branch of the Oregon State government.
Elizabeth Steiner Hayward wants the right to make her own personal medical decisions for her and her children, even if means disagreeing with a medical specialist who presumably had more knowledge than her in the matter of the pharmaceutical product she was considering.
However, this medical doctor, who is also a lawmaker, does not want anyone else in Oregon to have the same freedom of choice in regards to other medical products like vaccines. This would include other doctors and medical professionals who do not share the same views on vaccines and the science behind them as does Steiner Hayward, so she wants to use the power of government to force everyone else to believe like she does.
One of the doctors in Oregon who would be forced to give some vaccines to patients that he presently does not give vaccines to, would be Paul Thomas, M.D., FAAP. Dr. Thomas is a board-certified fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics. He also testified against SB 442 in front of the Senate Committee on Health Care in Oregon:
