Should childhood vaccinations become compulsory has repeatedly been in the news lately with new research testing done. This research was undergone to see if vaccines caused autism, SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome), multiple sclerosis (MS) and many more. The most recent study published in the Advertiser on May 20, 2014. This story appeared all over the news across Australia and is making headlines globally. It discusses that childhood vaccinations should become compulsory and they are not linked to autism. Making this issue an Australian and Global topic.

However these diseases are slowly creeping back into Australia the less people choose to immunise. In Australia alone the vaccination rates have dropped below 92% amongst children. This is considered a dangerously low level and is continuing to drop each day the more articles and conspiracies coming out from activist groups and communities. A test conducted by the Australian Department of Health shows that vaccinations prevent more the 2.5million deaths amongst immunised children in Australia alone. Vaccines helped reduce measles globally by 78% between 2000 and 2008. In sub-Saharan Africa deaths dropped by 92% in the same period of time. At the moment there are readily available vaccines for rotavirus and pneumonia. These two conditions alone kill nearly 3 million children under the age of 5 worldwide every year.
Vaccinations are proven to be harmful to infants and children and are linked to brain haemorrhages and SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome). A single vaccine given to a six pound new born is the equivalent to giving a 75kg adult 300 vaccines in on day. This has detrimental effects on the body. In Australia when a baby is born, the mother is asked if she wants the newborn to have these injections. Pain killers and immediate injections of vitamin K and hepatitis B vaccines are administered. In the drip there is oxytocin, which is an overload in hormones for an infant. The painkiller pethidine given is morphine and the new born gets a full blast of this just minutes after it’s born. This overload of the hormone oxytocin can cause brain haemorrhages (Professor Robert Booy, Westmead Children's hospital in Sydney). On top of this the baby is given a Hepatitis B vaccine, which on its own has high cases of causing brain and retinal haemorrhages amongst infants. After these first shots, two months later after it has recovered several other vaccines are injected, including, DPT, polio, influenza type B, a second hepatitis B, meningococcal and Pneumococcal.
The study in the Advertiser on May 20 12014 as previously stated clears any links between childhood vaccinations and Autism. The Sydney University examined ten major studies involving more than 125 million children. In this is was found that the supposed vaccines that caused Autism, MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) may in fact be slightly protective against the development of autism. Professor Guy Eslick oversaw the research examined the studies conducted in the UK, US, Denmark, Japan and Poland. These studies tracked hundreds of thousands of kinds both vaccinated and unvaccinated throughout their lives to see whether or not they developed autism after the MMR vaccination. In three of the studies, the risk of developing autism was 0.84. This is less than one which indicates vaccination results in a 16% lower risk of developing autism. The claims and conspiracy of the link between vaccinations and autism are from the 1998 paper by gastroenterologist Andrew Walkerfield. His papers were...
