In 2008, when my entire family got sick after the flu vaccine for the third year in a row, I got motivated to research the flu vaccine. Studying the actual data regarding vaccine efficacy and influenza mortality really opened my eyes. In spite of this, I followed the standard childhood vaccine recommendations for all my three children, and it took all three of them having serious adverse reactions after vaccination for me to finally question the vaccines they were receiving. I was so indoctrinated to believe that vaccines are safe and effective, that it took me years to see that they could actually cause such harm.
