Travel Vaccines

passport pictureI have researched the topic of vaccines in-depth since expecting my first son in 1982. I’ve travelled to many countries in Africa and been blessed to meet wonderful people and enjoy their hospitality. I spent 30+ years in South Africa and raised five children there.

I am a concerned mom and grandmother. I am also passionate about health and an avid truth seeker. While I might not seem to be much of an authority on anything, as I read and learn from experts who have a deeper knowledge of the science regarding vaccines, I am troubled when people I love rush to get travel vaccines prior to their mission trips. Here are some facts not commonly known:

Vaccines sometimes cause harm. Most people, including the majority of doctors and medical professionals, don’t know that the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) was established by US government agencies as a national vaccine safety surveillance program to collect information about adverse events (possible side effects) that occur after the administration of vaccines licensed for use in the United States. You can go and read 551,181 reports collected from 1986 – 2016 for yourself.

No liability. Those who make and inject vaccines are exempt from any and all liability from any vaccine – that means that the individual who receives the vaccine is fully responsible for any adverse event and ensuing medical expenses.

Choosing to receive a travel vaccine means you are choosing to be 100% responsible if there is any adverse event from that vaccines.

Media Hype. Please consider that what you hear repeated by the media and are told ad nauseam by CDC and pharmaceutical representatives is more likely motivated by financial incentives than the health and well-being of the public.

Vaccine Recommendations. The CDC provides a list of recommended vaccines for every county you might be thinking about visiting. Diseases are listed with recommendations based on the activities you may be engaged in while visiting. All travelers are encouraged to make sure they are up to date with the vaccines recommended for all adults living in the USA: tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis, (given together in one shot called the TDaP), measles, mumps, rubella (MMR), varicella (for chicken pox), polio, and a yearly flu shot. The suggestions for other vaccines, depending on the country, include Hepatitis B, Hepatitis A, Typhoid, Yellow Fever, Malaria, and Rabies. Some of these recommendations are highly suspect. Having lived in South Africa for 30+ years I found their suggestion to get rabies vaccines if you are planning to move there, or will be staying for a long time, to be ludicrous.

Many unsuspecting missionaries have naively accepted the ‘recommended’ travel vaccines only to find themselves incredibly sick with strange autoimmune illnesses. Many mission boards blindly trust recommendations by government authorities without any further thought or investigation. Adhering to standard medical recommendations is extremely naive and perhaps foolish in our age when we can access and study information for ourselves. Injecting chemical cocktails into your body in the hope it will protect you from illness is based on a flawed understanding of what we now know about the immune system. Most doctors have not been trained and do not understand the full mechanism of vaccines and the possible harm that can be inflicted on the body. Giving many shots at once is an especially dangerous practice.

If you are considering travel vaccines, I urge you to watch at least 3 important presentations:
1. Dr Suzanne Humphries‘ extensive presentations on the ingredients in vaccines;
2. Dr Tent’s talk on Exploding Autoimmune Disorders;
3. Trace Amounts, a film exploring the strange reaction one man in his twenties had after a routine tetanus shot.

Additionally you will want to read the entire vaccine package insert (generally a 20 page document) for any vaccine you are thinking of getting. You might also want to study the VAERS data base to discern if there have been reports of serious adverse events from that vaccine. Bear in mind that it is estimated that less than 10% of all adverse events are ever reported.

I pray you will be blessed in your travels and enjoy good health through making wise food choices. Please listen to this caring mother/grandmother before you decide to place your trust in this multi billion dollar industry.

  1. Thank you for the very informative article! How does one avoid the recommended vaccines when traveling? Can you still travel without them?

    • Hi Ann
      Most travel vaccines are simply “recommended” thus you are not required to receive them. The only one I know of that can be a bit tricky is the Yellow Fever vaccine. From what I have discovered so far, it is not required when you go to any specific country, but it is required by some countries when you return from a country that they consider to be a “yellow fever zone”. The confusing part is that there are differences among countries as far as which countries are “yellow fever zones.” For instance, if a traveler is going to Uganda from the USA and back to the USA, that is fine. If, however, a traveler is going from South Africa to Uganda, before arriving back into South Africa, the South African government requires proof of a yellow fever vaccine and many travelers have been forced to get one in the airport. If your travel includes a yellow fever risk zone you could get a medical exemption on a yellow international proof of vaccination card.
      I hope that helps. It is always a good idea to protect yourself from unnecessary toxins in vaccines and boost your immune system to protect you from illness.

  2. Oh, forgot to mention, they been vaccinating pregnant women for flu USA a few years, and TDap in pregnancy is a recommendation since 2013. In 2006, USA had 400 microcephalic babies born. By 2014? wait for it! 25,000 microcephalic babies are born in USA each year. Seems CDC forgot to check the statistics, USA don’t have zika?

      I am so glad you shared this i information. The public needs to know. I will do some research and write a blog just about this. Thank you for your input.

  3. Well said, Brazil mandated every pregnant women get Tdap, they got the shots from 20 weeks pregnant from May 2015, 20 weeks later the first of now 5,000 microcephalic babies born because of it. Four had zika. Seriously, probably because of the vaccine damage before birth.
    Why they jabbing pregnant women with a vaccine that kills babies if given at birth? Because the Dtap vaccinated, are now the ones spreading whooping cough, how do they hide this? The vaccinated siblings now infecting newborn babies? Shit, they have to try and jab the babies before birth. OUTCOME? Even with australias now non stop DTAP caused whooping cough epidemic (the vaccine fails after 3 years, all the kids now getting full whooping cough), and babies being infected from all the 98.5% vaccinated kids, only 1 baby out of 200 may die from whooping cough (only dangerous in newborns). For this they jab every pregnant woman, and Brazil now has 1 in 50 of these babies born microcephalic. No vaccinations in Colombia, lots and lots of zika, lots and lots of pregnancies, no microcephaly. The fraud is so horrific, it is disgusting.
