This is unbelievably shocking. Two little ones in Samoa, only one year old, both of them. Think of the grieving parents in this totally avoidable tragedy. Deepest condolences to those parents. This is why parents are questioning vaccines. And yet they are vilified for doing so. They are taking away our choices for our own health & the health of our babies. Ask for the inserts parents. Ask for the risks, the side effects. Ask if it’s been tested. Ask to see the test results. Know what the odds are of damage to you & your children, before consenting. Ask if you will be compensated for injuries. We’ve grown too blase about asking questions. Thing is the numbers of vaccines has risen dramatically in recent decades. What used to be a very minimal risk of damage, has now become far more common. Clearly we need to be asking questions, and expecting satisfactory answers. See our vaccine pages for further info.

The head of the Ministry of Health in Samoa has ordered the immediate recall of all measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccines after the deaths of two one-year-olds.
The children were given the MMR vaccine on Friday at Safotu Hospital on the island of Savai’i. However within minutes they were dead. One child was allegedly immunised without the mother’s consent – and despite her protesting.
Health Ministry CEO Dr Take Naseri says a full investigation is underway into the deaths. All MMR vaccines in Samoa have been ordered to be seized and the staff involved have been stood down, TV1 Samoa reports.
Prime Minister Tuilaepa Lupesoliai Dr Sailele Malielegaoi says he is waiting to be fully briefed on the situation.
“I have called a full inquiry into the circumstances leading up to this devastating incident which I do not take lightly,” he told media.
“There are already processes that will determine if negligence is a factor. And if so, rest assured those processes will be implemented to the letter to ensure that such tragic [deaths] will not be repeated and those responsible will be made to answer.”
