7 Essentials for Sharing Vaccine Truth with those you love.

You have spent HOURS researching vaccine ingredients and understand the true risk of injecting vaccines. You desperately want to share what you have learned with family, friends, and even total strangers. Caring enough about the people you know and meet means making an effort to meet them where they are.

  1. Pray. God can open hearts and minds to truth, in a way we don’t always understand. In Acts 16:14 God opened Lydia’s heart to the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. In Colossians 2 Paul reminds us that in Jesus Christ are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. Sharing vaccine reality requires sensitivity to the awakening God wants to do in every heart. We need to pray and be sensitive that this is actually a spiritual battle; it is God’s work, not ours. God can use us to share truth, but we need to proceed with humility. Ask friends to join you in prayer for specific family members. Consider implementing a “Fast and Pray strategy.
  1. Ask questions. Be more interested in the other person, how they feel, what has formed their views, their previous experiences, than you are in pushing your information in their face. Determine what they know. Do they know how many vaccines the CDC now recommends for babies – and adults? Do they know how vaccines ‘work’? Do they understand neonatal immune development? Do they have fears about specific infections?
  1. Love & Respect. Often vaccine discussions can get heated. Don’t allow your intense desire to convince others to push your buttons. Leave your emotions out. Focus on loving. Show respect. This will take time. Seek to always leave a conversation with the other person feeling heard, respected and loved.
  1. Use Third Parties. There are great documentaries, Youtube videos, etc. with rational calm presentations. Determine which might be a good fit for the person you are trying to enlighten. Short respectful videos are a good way to start. Dr Moss is a man “in the system” who speaks very respectfully about the system, yet offers very good points on questioning vaccines. Since it is short, informed, loving, and has some story components, it could be a great place to start. Other doctors I admire: Dr Suzanne Humphries, 240+ Doctors speak out on vaccine truth, Documentaries: Bought, Greater Good.
  1. Get Confident. Build your own credibility by learning and distilling facts accurately. Practice on Facebook, join a Vaccine Truth Facebook Group to learn more, or practice with friends. Focus on a few basic facts and learn them well, here is a list of vaccine objections I put together. Some good facts to review and be very familiar with: VICP compensation since 1988, table of injuries used by VICP, vaccine package inserts for different vaccines, CDC schedule, Aluminum content in vaccines.
  1. Stay calm. Don’t beat yourself up with guilt if you ‘mess up’ or it goes badly, but keep at it. Seek to be more accepting, more informative, and keep trying! If you have younger children, keep training them. Train your children to be adept at sharing vaccine/health truth with others. You are leaving a legacy of health. Never give up. The issue of vaccine safety is so huge that it is a deal breaker for many single people. It is something that needs to be discussed very early in the ‘getting to know you’ process, for anyone considering marriage.
  1. Don’t expect overnight success. Belief in vaccine safety is a deeply held philosophical concept, similar to religion, that will not be changed quickly. A good starting point is to get future parents to consider the ‘next’ vaccine decision they may face. For a pregnant woman, investigating the true risks/benefits of a flu shot or a TDaP shot; for newborns, encourage investigating Hepatitis B shots.

  2. Thank you so much!
    I’m a mother/baby nurse (I also have my lactation Counselor certification) and I’ve been sharing NVIC.org with my patients and with other nurses – even with our nurse educator!

    • Great Rose,
      Keep up the education efforts. I believe nurses care about what is best for their patients and we can help them understand the true dangers of vaccines with lots of patience and persistence.

  3. Love your article! Thanks so much for sharing. <3 I recently had a great conversation with a friend about vaccination (specifically measles… considering the news lately), and it was the first time in years, I was able to truly talk about it and not get into a "I'm right, you're wrong" dead end. Although he still preserved his views on vaccines, he was able to see and understand my points on it, and we ended with our friendship still intact! Your article is really helpful in a world that seems to hold a lot of anger around this topic instead of curiosity. Thanks again!
    I recently wrote an article on Measles, if it is helpful to anyone… attempting to calm fears regarding measles: http://healthandvaccines.blogspot.com/2017/05/measles-coming-to-town-near-you.html

      Great information about measles your blog. It is ironic that fear is used to push vaccines, yet parents are rarely warned that their biggest fears – death, encephalitis, etc. could also be CAUSED by the vaccine itself. Too many parents learn the hard way.
