In a book bursting with intelligence, Louise Habakus and Mary Holland reframe the entire autism-vaccine debate turning the conversation away from the tired clichés of the past and opening bright new avenues of ideas and thought that delve deep below the surface of pro-this or anti-that. Ever purposeful and in some ways masterful, by reframing the debate, the authors get to the heart of the matter that aims for your head and hits your heart.

Vaccine Epidemic is the latest book on vaccine damaged Americans crying out for help. Authored by eminent lawyers, health care professionals, philosophers, medical science historians, human rights advocates, vaccine affected patients and their closest relatives, it portrays a grim picture of modern medicine and the justice system. It may as well be a cry to God for delivering their fate to corporate greed in complicity with their own government. Not surprisingly, the cry is not without proof. For instance, the most compelling argument against the uselessness of measles vaccine is made from a notoriously high death rate of this disease at nearly four percent in 1900 to virtually zero by 1948, fifteen years before measles vaccine was introduced in 1963. A similar observation applied to the not so deadly infectious diseases including scarlet fever, typhoid, whooping cough and diphtheria. The death rate due to Rubella, Mumps and Chicken Pox was so minute that it did not even make to the epidemiological list. Why then, is the ongoing push for more and more vaccines and boosters especially since their application is increasingly being associated with a concomitant increase in childhood illnesses, including autism, diabetes and various other autoimmune conditions? It is a legitimate question. It is one that should be answered by politicians of all stripes, the medical profession and the justice system to serve the public interest. A must read book.

CORRUPT TO THE CORE: Memoirs of Health Canada Whistleblower
Habakus and Holland give voice to the often muted side of the vaccine debate. This brilliant and alarming compilation of research and personal stories calls into question the sanctity of our public health agenda; and demands we exercise our intrinsic rights as citizens to continually challenge the science and meaning behind the words – public safety.
Mary Coyle, D.I. Hom
Vaccine Epidemic is a manifesto of our movement and essential work on human freedoms as we march into this strange future where government and industry have become one and the same.
Lou Conte, parent of vaccine-injured triplets
Vaccine Epidemic will be hailed as one of the most significant contributions to the swelling vaccine awareness movement. Dissent over compulsory vaccination is as old as the practice itself and the root of opposition has been based, historically, on the violations of human and civil rights which began well before the genocides of WWII. This compilation of narratives, inquiries, and assessments is a must-read for every individual who regards their right to autonomy as paramount in any medical or public health decision.
Maureen Drummond, co-founder/co-director, New Jersey Coalition for Vaccination Choice
Vaccine Epidemic provides readers with an array of valid well researched perspectives on the vaccine safety and personal choice issue. Whether you are a parent who is pondering making a vaccine decision, a parent of a child who has suffered a vaccine injury or an injured adult, this book provides factual first person accounts from doctors, lawyers, parents scientists, victims, activists and both civilian and enlisted personnel who have experienced serious adverse effects from vaccines. Vaccine Epidemic emphasizes how important it is to seek, preserve and defend our personal rights when it comes to making individual choices about vaccines.
Claire Dwoskin, philanthropist and children’s health activist
Vaccine Epidemic is an essential and critical read that details the complex topic of vaccine injury and personal health rights. Comprised of original essays written by many different authors; the book takes the complicated legal, medical, and scientific issues surrounding this matter and dissects them into easily digestible bite-sized morsels of knowledge. Vaccine Epidemic is a powerful new weapon in the information war that currently surrounds vaccination policy.
Rebecca Estepp, Talk About Curing Autism Chapter Coordinator, San Diego
Vaccine Epidemic is a timely reminder that the same way Wall Street conspires with the government for its own benefit at the expense of the working and middle classes, the healthcare industry conspires with the government for the sake of its profits.

While the corruption of vaccine promoters has been extensively documented by the recent H1N1 story, citizens are more and more threatened by regulatory decisions biased toward compulsory immunization. This book makes an inventory of the historical, legal, ethical and scientific arguments pleading against such a perverse tendency. The next stage will be to show that compared with usual drugs (whose iatrogenic potential is now unanimously recognized), vaccines are “pharmacological monsters”, especially regarding their alleged duration of action: as such, they require far more stringent regulations, to say nothing about Hippocratic prudence…
Marc Girard, MSc, MD, consultant for the pharmaceutical industry
Based on my experience with vaccination programs in the military, I strongly believe that we must address the conflicts of interest which currently exist in our national vaccine program. To set aside our values is to lose our way, as a nation and a superpower. Vaccine Epidemic connects the dots and explains how this is happening.
Colonel Felix M. Grieder, USAF (Ret.), former wing commander, Dover Air Force Base, Delaware
There are unanswered questions about vaccine safety. We need studies on vaccinated populations based on various schedules and doses as well as individual patient susceptibilities that we are continuing to learn about. No one should be threatened by the pursuit of this knowledge. Vaccine policy should be the subject of frank and open debate, with no tolerance for bullying. There are no sides—only people concerned for the well-being of our children.
Bernadine Healy, M.D., former director, National Institutes of Health (NIH), and current health editor, U.S. News & World Report
Not since Evidence of Harm have I been so incensed when reading a book after learning, yet again, of more times our government has turned its head to the devastating collateral damage happening every day to our nation’s children from vaccines. Yet at the end of this account, instead of resentment, I felt empowerment to do something constructive to enable parents to become informed about whether ‘the greater good’ is worth the sacrifice of their child. The common thread that links all of the personal and historical reports is the same: for our children to have any worth in society, parents must have a choice. I highly recommend Vaccine Epidemic for all parents to use as the ‘go to’ handbook on this important, yet controversial, issue.
Jennifer Keefe, Esq, co-founder, Elizabeth Birt Center for Autism Law and Advocacy
As the majority of our health officials, medical doctors and scientists march blindly giving accolades to the aggressive US vaccine protocol, a growing group of citizens are brave enough to expose the hidden dirty secrets of vaccination. Vaccine Epidemic is a must read for parents, concerned citizens globally and medical doctors, government officials and scientists who dare to open their minds and venture out of the box.
Claudine Liss, Esq, screenwriter and activist
Vaccine Epidemic provides a valuable addition to the vaccination choice literature with sober, considered, and scholarly articles. Every parent who questions the ethical, legal, and health implications of compulsory vaccination should read this enlightening book to understand the real issues behind the vaccine debate.
Randall Neustaedter OMD, author, The Vaccine Guide: Risks and Benefits for Children and Adults
I never realized the depth of the violation of my civil rights until reading the Vaccine Epidemic. This book gives me and many the voice and validation that something is terribly wrong with our vaccine program and the industry behind it. I have tremendous gratitude for the brave contributors for sharing their stories and empowering us to be informed about what choices we have for our own bodies.
Lisa Rudley, parent advocate and NAA NY Metro Chapter Board Member
Readers will learn how vaccination resembles dogmatic religion rather than fact based science and how Americans are paying the price in declining health from childhood through the “golden” years.
Kim Stagliano, author of It’s All I Can Handle I’m No Mother Theresa
As a minister, advocate, and mother of a vaccine-injured child, I echo the startling questions which Habakus and Holland poignantly raise in this groundbreaking examination. A vaccine program that inflicts avoidable injury and death in its pursuit to safeguard the ‘Public Health’ has gone tragically awry. The question is whether we as a society will continue to walk away from the damage . . . and the damaged . . .
Reverend Lisa Sykes, United Methodist minister and author of Sacred Spark
Habakus and Holland have collected some of the subject’s best experts. This critical book should be read by every government official worldwide. As the mother of a vaccine damaged child, I read the personal narratives with great sadness. They represent so many whose stories have not been told. If you don’t think vaccines can harm, read this book and make up your own mind.
Polly Tommey, Editor-in-Chief, Autism File Global
As a member of Congress, I pushed hard to create a safer childhood vaccine program. This book raises some of the important issues that need to be discussed. This is an important topic and the book should play an important role.
Dave Weldon, M.D., practicing physician and former U.S. Congressman, 1995–2009
Vaccine Epidemic exposes the bitter truth about vaccination mandates. Free and informed consent is not only a human right, but also an indispensable market mechanism which ensures that a high demand exists only for superior, necessary, and well-priced products. Vaccines are mandated precisely because they meet none of these criteria.
Marguerite Willner, former vice chair, Advisory Commission on Childhood Vaccines
This is a brilliant book! Louise Kuo Habakus and Mary Holland are the Woodward and Bernstein of the autism epidemic. Buy it for the “there is no science” people in your life. The science is there – in spades. Habakus and Holland meticulously dissect every element of this debate.The evidence they have uncovered is astounding and deeply disturbing.
Katie Wright, writer and board member, National Autism Association
The most ardent supporter of vaccination programs only needs to witness or be touched by one serious vaccine reaction to fully understand and respect the wishes of those who support freedom of choice relative to routine pediatric vaccinations.
