This Is The Way One Father Told His Pediatrician “No” To Vaccines

by Jeffry John Aufderheide

What does an informed parent look like? We’ll show you.

Below is a letter written by Bob O’Kane, a concerned parent, to his pediatrician about vaccines and the danger they pose to his child. This letter is one great example of how to approach your doctor, especially if you have looked into the matter further and are uncomfortable with their stance on the topic.

The name of the doctor has been intentionally omitted.

Doctor XXX,

My wife and I would like to say it was an absolute pleasure to meet you. We thank you for taking the time with us the other day to discuss our beautiful little daughter Rylan.

I was wondering if I could take a moment to discuss something with you real quick regarding the notes I read this evening in her file. Please note, this is a very calm letter and not meant to start a debate in any way. We value your profession and position.

That being said, It’s in my opinion that the some of the comments are a bit misleading and was wondering if you could add this email to your notes. Please note we understand you are extremely busy and probably had to summarize the appointment the best you could.

You mentioned in your report “PARENTS ( my wife and I) REFUSE TO SIGN THE VACCINE WAIVER BECAUSE THIS DOCUMENT CAN BE USED AGAINST THEM AND CAN BE USED TO TAKE THEIR CHILD AWAY. I EXPLAINED THIS IS THE REC OF THE AAP AND MY OFFICE POLICY. THEY REFUSE TO SIGN. EXPLAINED MY OPINION ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF VACCINES AND THEY UNDERSTOOD WILL THINK ABOUT VACCINATING………”

A few things to note here. First and most most importantly, we refused to sign the document because there was no legal statute or requirement for us to sign such a document. This was the main basis for the non signature. We simply do not have to. Nor is there any legal basis for AAP to require such signature. I also specifically mentioned that there has been cases surfacing around the country whereas a parents signature on such a document was used against the parents.

For the record I never, ever once said “we fear losing our child.” This statement, with respect, is erroneous and can lead to a misinterpretation. I has also mentioned we are in fact of a religious exemption which was granted to our family on the 20th of May, 2014.

We also specifically stated that our concerns were not only with the ingredients listed on the vaccines and the disclaimers on the vaccine inserts, but the overall fear we had was that our child could break out in the hive/rashes she did shortly after receiving her Hepatitis B shot. If it was only after those hives/rashes appeared that we had blood testing done which determined our lovely daughter had elevated liver functions. This was the majority of our rationale behind not giving her shots as I implied.

The other reasons were the materials we read at the cdc and fda website.

First, the disclaimers on vaccine inserts or lack of disclaimers was a concern. The disclaimers clearly state the possible side effects. Yet, not one Doctor in the past had those ready for us. Nor did they provide them when the vaccine was opened. We had to do the research ourselves. And honestly, I’m glad we did. Especially with the amount of information surfacing lately that research was or could have been manipulated.

In addition, the head of the CDC in an April/May radio show admitted the so called measles outbreak in New York consisted of 23 cases of which 20 people who got the measles had previously been vaccinated and thus nobody could be assured the vaccines actually work. (this is public information on the CDC website, and put a dent in the so called “herd immunity” theory.).. The other three cases involved foreigners. Our last Doctor even told us people are dying. Dr. XXXX, do you know how many people have died in the past 10 years? The number is in fact less than all the fingers I have on my hands. Again, this is public record available through the CDC and not some Google search result.

The last concern was the ingredients and the amount of Aluminum and by-products that are in the vaccines which so happened to have been the center of several House Oversight Committee hearings on Capital Hill. I also stated that the cdc and fda have conflicting views when it came to amount of Aluminum which should be injected into an individual based on their body weight.
I quote (and I encourage you to check my sources:) )

According to the FDA:

Aluminum may reach toxic levels with prolonged parenteral administration (this means injected into the body] if kidney function is impaired . . . Research indicates that patients with impaired kidney function, including premature neonates (babies), who received parenteral levels of aluminum at greater than 4 to 5 micrograms per kilogram of body weight per day, accumulate aluminum at levels associated with central nervous system and bone toxicity [for a tiny newborn, this toxic dose would be 10 to 20 micrograms, and for an adult it would be about 350 micrograms). Tissue loading may occur at even lower rates of administration.” (Department of Health and Human Services, Food and Drug Administration, Document NDA 19-626/S-019, Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act for Dextrose Injections.)

And also:

Aluminum content in parenteral drug products could result in a toxic accumulation of aluminum in individuals receiving TPN therapy. Research indicates that neonates [newborns] and patient populations with impaired kidney function may be at high risk of exposure to unsafe amounts of aluminum. Studies show that aluminum may accumulate in the bone, urine, and plasma of infants receiving TPN. Many drug products used in parenteral therapy (injections) may contain levels of aluminum sufficiently high to cause clinical manifestations (symptoms) . . . parenteral aluminum bypasses the protective mechanism of the GI tract and aluminum circulates and is deposited in human tissues. Aluminum toxicity is difficult to identify in infants because few reliable techniques are available to evaluate bone metabolism in . . . infants . . . Although aluminum toxicity is not commonly detected clinically, it can be serious in selected patient populations, such as neonates (newborns), and may be more common than is recognized.” 
(Department of Health and Human Services, Food and Drug Administration, Document 02N-0496, Aluminum in Large and Small Volume Parenterals Used in Total Parenteral Nutrition. 

Doctor XXXX, the FDA maximum requirements for aluminum received in an IV is 25 mcg per day. The suggested aluminum per kg of weight to give to a person is up to 5mcg. (so a 5 pounds baby should get no more than 11mcg of aluminum.) Anything that has more than 25 mcg of aluminum is a very valid concern for us when it comes to Rylan.

Research indicates that “patients with impaired kidney function, including premature neonates, who receive parenteral levels of aluminum at greater than 4 to 5 (micro)g/kg/day accumulate aluminum at levels associated with central nervous system and bone toxicity. Tissue loading may occur at even lower rates of administration. (http://www.accessdata.fda.gov/scripts/cdrh/cfdocs/cfcfr/CFRSearch.cfm?fr=201.323)”

But did you know most Vaccines, for some reason, are not required to have a label containing this information and that practitioners also are not required to follow the maximum dosage of 25 mcg? This is something that actually was very troubling to us.

So doing some math — the following are examples of weight with their corresponding maximum levels of aluminum, per the FDA:

  • 8 pound, healthy baby: 18.16 mcg of aluminum
  • 15 pound, healthy baby: 34.05 mcg of aluminum
  • 30 pound, healthy toddler: 68.1 mcg of aluminum
  • 50 pound, healthy child: 113 mcg of aluminum
  • 150 pound adult: 340.5 mcg of aluminum
  • 350 pound adult: 794.5 mcg of aluminum

So how much aluminum is in the vaccines that are routinely given to children?

  • Hib (PedVaxHib brand only) – 225 mcg per shot
  • Hepatitis B – 250 mcg
  • DTaP – depending on the manufacturer, ranges from 170 to 625 mcg
  • Pneumococcus – 125 mcg
  • Hepatitis A – 250 mcg
  • HPV – 225 mcg
  • Pentacel (DTaP, HIB and Polio combo vaccine) – 330 mcg
  • Pediarix (DTaP, Hep B and Polio combo vaccine) – 850 mcg

The HEP-B shot alone is almost 14 TIMES THE AMOUNT OF ALUMINUM THAT IS FDA-APPROVED. The MMR? The dTap? All have similar amounts.

So in summary Doctor XXXX, when we did our due diligence, this info scared the hell out of us. Especially considering what happened to Rylan shortly after the Hep B was administered to her.

Continuing, I mentioned what made us leave our last Doctor was that she wanted to give our daughter 8 vaccinations at once. And in doing the math, that would have added up to more than 1,000 mcg of aluminum. Even when one, who is not familiar with toxicity levels and the science behind them, looks at the chart above can notice that amount isn’t even safe for a 350 pound adult let alone a child who weighs less than 25lbs.

According to the FDA and the AAP (American Academy of Pediatrics), what happens if a child receives more than the maximum required dose of aluminum?

  • Aluminum builds up in the bones and brain and can be toxic to the body and its organs.
  • Aluminum “can” cause neurological harm.
  • Aluminum overdose can be fatal in patients with weak kidney’s or kidney disorders or in premature babies.
  • (Aluminum Toxicity in Infants and Children, Committee on Nutrition,American Academy of Pediatrics, Pediatrics Volume 97, Number 3 March, 1996, pp. 413-416)”

In summary, our reasons, even though we have an issued exemption in the State of Florida, were valid enough to hold off on vaccinations and the ingredients that are used in them as adjuvants. Especially when one considers what happened shortly after her first HEP-B shot.

In closing, I thank you for taking the short time to read my email. We firmly admire your practice and the personnel you have and look forward in continuing Rylan’s care with you. She deserves the best, and we think we found it.

Respectfully Yours’,

Robert O’Kane

ps- yes we are considering the shots as she gets older. But in the meantime can you order for us an a screen to determine if Rylan’s immune compromised? This will help us a great deal considering thousands of cases that went through the vaccine court in the past decade showed many injuries and deaths resulted in the failure to pre-detect if children had a compromised immune system prior to any shots.

  • CAWS

    Pediatric schools are funded by vaccine companies & they are monitored so if they don't bully at least 85-90% of their patients to get vaccinated they will be harassed or possibly targeted for discipline by AAP.
    That said you did the right thing. If they respond negatively find another doc; preferably a non pediatrician. Besides immune damage assessment [you will probably need a specialist] you can get DNA testing of the CYP450 enzyme system which can clearly tell if you are a slow metabolizer of metals, pesticides & certain chemicals. Pretty expensive unless you go to 23andme dot com for $99. FDA won't let them interpret for you anymore but there are apps you can download that will. You also get ancestry info as a bonus.
    I am not affiliated with this company.

  • Invierno

    look into 23ANDME before doing it. Company deeply in bed with investment banks, Google, etc. If you send in your DNA, the evil corps have it people! Be smart, pay ten times more for a private lab….this $99 is a loss leader to get your DNA. Don't be dumb!

  • abinico

    DNA has nothing to do with disease (other than the few known defects present at conception and expressed at birth). DNA is about expression of traits and characteristics – that is all.

  • Yuppers

    Thanks for helping to bring back diseases we wiped out decades ago before a bunch of clown shoes started the "anti vax" "movement". Those illnesses are on your hands.

  • bigragu

    why the soap opera, the doctor doesn't care about your reasons. either the doctor is willing to accept that as parents the decisions as to what is in your child's best interest rests with you or does not. find a doctor who does. there are plenty of GP's and pediatricians out there. shop for a doctor until you find one who accepts your rights in these matters.

  • Geoffrey Franklin Finn

    What a fool. Still considering the shots for later. He is a incompetent parent. But he has plenty of company.

  • Jon

    I hope the doctor told that nutcase to never come back

  • Muhammad Abbass

    Excellent.

  • Muhammad Abbass

    It is a diplomatic and intelligent way to avoid any further harrassment from a system which can't be trusted not to find any excuse to intervene. They will probably never have the shots but in this way don't end up in a confrontation.

  • Jo Brown

    I believe the "soap opera", as you call it, is to show they are not hysterical parents, or religious nutcases, or conspiracy theorists. It is to show they are reasonable, informed, intelligent people who want the best for their child and are diligent enough to do their own fact checking to ensure they are not exposing her to danger.

  • Jo Brown

    Geoffrey, you're the fool for not figuring out what Muhammad obviously has figured out and elegantly explained for your benefit.

  • Jo Brown

    What a moron you are Yuppers. If those diseases were "wiped out decades ago", how can they come back? Do you expect Tyrannosaurus Rex to make a comeback soon too?
    Blaming those diseases on people who choose not to vaccinate is totally misguided. They didn't create those diseases. And the people who DO vaccinate surely have nothing to fear from these diseases, right? Because the vaccine is very effective at protecting them, right? Right? Or maybe not, huh?

  • St_Ann

    I know I am going to get crucified here, but Dr. Rimland, who treated many autistic children, whose own son was autistic, and who compiled over 37,000 cases of autistic children in his research, and who was also a consultant for the movie Rainman, this Dr. Rimland expressed an opinion that heavy metals in vaccines are behind the meteoric rise of autism. Looking at the math done by the concerned father who wrote that letter, I am trying to understand what the purpose of overdosing kids with aluminum is. Instead of infighting we should focus on pressuring the pharmaceutical companies to come up with a different product that works without poisonous metals.

  • freewheelinfranklin543

    If he keeps his kids away from vaccines he will have a healthy and intelligent child. I would advise you to get as many vaccines as you can stand troll!

  • Hollywood

    if you're vaccinated then what do you have to worry about huh? clown

  • Hollywood

    you're the nutcase one here

  • Jon

    nope

  • Jon

    so, you must have had thousands?

  • Jon

    This is great, uninformed idiots will not inoculate their offspring, the said offspring will die early, from easily avoided diseases. Darwin in action, and a boon to future generations.

  • James Sarah

    My name is Sarah. i want to use this opportunity to thank my great doctor Areghan who really made my life a pleasurable one today. This great Doctor Areghan brought my husband back to me, i had 3 lovely kids for my husband, about 3 years ago i and my husband has been into one quarrel or the other until he finally left me for one lady. i felt my life was over and my kids thought they would never see their father again. i tried to be strong just for the kids but i could not control the pains that torments my heart, my heart was filled with sorrows and pains because i was really in love with my husband. Every day and night i think of him and always wish he would come back to me, until one day i met a good friend of mine that was also in a situation like me but her problem was her ex-boyfriend who she had an unwanted pregnancy for and he refused to take responsibility and dumped her. she told me that mine was a small case and that i shouldn't worry about it at all so i asked her what was the solution to my problems and she gave me this great man phone number and his email address. i was doubting if this man was the solution, so i contacted this great man and he told me what to do and i did them all, he told me to wait for just two days and that my husband will come crawling on his kneels just for forgiveness so i faithfully did what this great man asked me to do and for sure after two days i heard a knock on the door, in a great surprise i saw him on his kneels and i was speechless, when he saw me, all he did was crying and asking me for forgiveness, from that day, all the pains and sorrows in my heart flew away,since then i and my husband and our lovely kids are happy. that why i want to say a big thank you to Dr. Areghan. This great man made me to understand that there's no problem on earth that has no solution so please if you know that you have this same problem or any problem that is similar, i will advise you to come straight to this great man. you can email him: realspellcaster112@gmail.com
