Science Teacher May Be Disciplined for Urging Students Be Informed of Vaccination Risks

books, pencils and appleStory Highlights
  • An Ontario science teacher is facing disciplinary action for trying to ensure students were informed about the risks of vaccines they were receiving at school.
  • The complaint against the teacher is that it was inappropriate for him to express his concerns to the students over the risks of vaccination.
  • It is a fact that there are risks of adverse reactions to vaccinations, including brain damage and death.

In March 2015, science teacher Timothy Sullivan approached public health nurses administering vaccines to high school students at his school in Waterford, Ontario, Canada and asked whether they had appropriately informed the students about the potential risks of the shots they were giving. He noted that the teenagers were required to give informed consent and the nurses, therefore, had the obligation to make sure they were fully informed.1

Mr. Sullivan also made the point that, “some of the components in the vaccines were deemed ‘toxic’ in his science lab.” The nurse allegedly answered that they alerted parents and teens about common vaccine risks like fever or soreness at the injection site and she claimed that “a screening tool allows nurses to assess if there are any underlying conditions that would trigger a more serious reaction among students” and added that “the risk of death from receiving a vaccine is so very, very rare.”1

Who Decides What Facts Can or Cannot Be Taught?

The complaints against Mr. Sullivan appear to have focused on how disruptive his comments were to the planned vaccination event rather than the accuracy or inaccuracy of his views. The reality of vaccine risks for death and serious side effects has been acknowledged by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), and the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH). All of these organizations have stated that vaccines may cause adverse reactions and death in a small percentage of patients. According to the CDC, “although immunization has successfully reduced the incidence of vaccine-preventable diseases, vaccination can cause both minor and, rarely, serious side effects.”2

The CDC acknowledges the “possible” though “rare” association between “hepatitis B vaccine and anaphylaxis; measles vaccine and a) thrombocytopenia and b) possible risk for death resulting from anaphylaxis or disseminated disease in immunocompromised persons; diphtheria and tetanus toxoids and pertussis vaccine (DTP) and chronic encephalopathy; and tetanus-toxoid-containing vaccines and a) Guillain-Barre syndrome, b) brachial neuritis, and c) possible risk for death resulting from anaphylaxis.”2

An article from the journal Vaccine, published on the NIH website, stresses that vaccines are safe for most people, but admits there are “cases where a known or plausible theoretical risk of death following vaccination exists [that may] include anaphylaxis, vaccine-strain systemic infection after administration of live vaccines to severely immunocompromised persons, intussusception after rotavirus vaccine, Guillain-Barré syndrome after inactivated influenza vaccine, fall-related injuries associated with syncope after vaccination, yellow fever vaccine-associated viscerotropic disease or associated neurologic disease, serious complications from smallpox vaccine including eczema vaccinatum, progressive vaccinia, postvaccinal encephalitis, myocarditis, and dilated cardiomyopathy, and vaccine-associated paralytic poliomyelitis from oral poliovirus vaccine.”3

In the case of Mr. Sullivan, he claims to be not so much against vaccines as for the concept of informed consent, although after acquiring the package inserts pertaining to the vaccinations being administered to the students, he said he found it “embarrassing really that I didn’t know about the effects as a parent, as a teacher, as a biology teacher. I was unaware of the severity of some of the side-effects.”

Mr. Sullivan has now been found guilty of professional misconduct by the disciplinary board of the Ontario College of Teachers.4 With the conviction of Mr. Sullivan, the college is asking for penalties including a formal reprimand, a month-long suspension, and completion of an anger management course.

In deciding on the penalty phase, the board could strip Mr. Sullivan of his teaching certificate and impose fines of up to $5,000. The complaint against Mr. Sullivan holds that he was out of line in addressing the students, and that it is a parent’s place, not a teacher’s to address vaccine concerns. Mr. Sullivan said, “I teach science. You don’t just teach one side of the story.”5

    The CDC is a corrupt organization designed to promote vaccines, not be objective or to protect our rights. In fact CDC owns several patents on vaccines and SELLS vaccines over several million dollars worth each year! Talk about the fox minding the hen house!

    The National Vaccine Act of 1986 has to be repealed! The news media like Fox News must be exposed for their disingenuous position supporting vaccines and not exposing the fraud and deceit by the medical industry while receiving 70% of their advertising money from the medical industry!

    Go to The Mercury Project and watch the video by Robert F. Kennedy,jr. to see the fraud, deceit, and lies being promoted by the medical industry on Americans right now!

    “Vaccines Are Unavoidably Unsafe”
    Don’t take my word for it. These are the words of Justice Scalia in Bruesewitz v. Wyeth, LLC in a Supreme Court decision in 2011. Unfortunately, due to the protections afforded the vaccine maker in the National Childhood Vaccine Act of 1986, the Court ruled against a vaccine injured plaintiff in the case. How?

    In the 1980s, children were having adverse reactions to the DTP (diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis) vaccine. Lots of lawsuits were being filed against docs and vaccine manufacturers. This caused the pharmaceutical industry to threaten pulling out of the vaccine market, and the alarm bells rang that the nation’s health and safety were at risk. Why were vaccine manufacturers getting ready to take their ball and go home? Because vaccines fall into a class of products considered “unavoidably unsafe.” I am not kidding you. This “unavoidable” word comes from the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act itself “products which, in the present state of human knowledge, are quite incapable of being made safe.”

    In 1986, Congress decided on a way to compensate folks for these avoidable injuries and death. It is called the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. From 2001 until 2011 the program has compensated about 2500 families a total of $2 billion. There has been close to $4 billion paid to date since inception. But, that represents only a small fraction of those who actually brought claims to the Vaccine Court. You see, there is a 36 month window to bring the claim. There is no “tolling” granted for minors, unlike all the Civil Courts in the U.S. Guess what? Neurological injuries may not present in infants for long after 36 months. Furthermore, who knows how many cases were never brought by attorneys on behalf of a vaccine injured child, because the statute of limitations ran out?

    Don’t let anyone tell you that vaccines don’t cause injury. They have, they do and they will do so in the future. For years, Thimerosal was used as a preservative in multi-dose vials. While still proclaiming it “safe”, vaccine makers “voluntarily” removed Thimerosal. It is still present in trace amounts and in flu vaccine. Thimerosal was never approved by the FDA, as the patents predated the establishment of said regulations. Worried?

    With nearly 6,000 cases pending the USCFC held the “Omnibus Autism Hearings.” They decided not to make “autism” a “table injury.” How convenient. Since there would never be enough money to pay for all who claim an “autism” injury. But, there have been many cases compensated for “encephalopathy” as a diagnosis with reference to autism. You can read it: http://digitalcommons.pace.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1681&context=pelr

    For the record, I am not “anti-vaccine.” Both of my children were fully vaccinated. Unfortunately for us, our son was neurologically disabled by vaccines. It is indisputable, yet the government and the vaccine makers still think that there is a “greater good” to be served. They may be right. But, let’s not fool ourselves. Vaccines can be made safer. It is about money.

      March 15, 2017 at 3:42 pm

      The”Greater good” argument is not a valid argument whatsoever when you look at the real science! Why would anyone support harming every single child with every Vaccine? And to protect from what when we know vaccines are only temporary at best and damage the 80% of the immune system in the process.

      Just because a child does not exhibit a diagnosis that is not obvious based on the medical paradigm of symptom treatment doesn’t mean they are not damaged!

      All of the accepted marketing spin used by the medical community is based on beliefs or manipulated data. A prime example is the false idea that Ethyl mercury leaves the body in 5 days based on a study using a blood tiger that also shows Methyl mercury takes 54 days to leave the blood thereby claiming Ethyl mercury is far safer. What the medical terrotistsCDC, FDA and vaccine manufacturers on purpose decided to tell the public is that it leaves the body in5 days. Guess what, IT DOES NOT
      EAVE THE BOY, BUT GOES TO THE BRAIN, PINEAL GLAND, KIDNEYS AND IN THE BRAIN COVERTS TO INORGANIC MERCURY THAT IS 50 times more toxic thanMethyl mercury found in fish and from coal burning plants!

      Now combine that with Aluminum hydroxide going into Vaccine victims and all the other poisons like fprmaldahie, baby parts, to name a few! These are criminals legally getting away with medical genicide of our children. This has to stop and these criminals put in prison!

    How dare this teacher be treated like this?! I am a female in my 40’s and have been in Perfect Physical Health my ENTIRE Life. I was biking 20 miles a day for 15 years. Out of the blue, my Pharmacist asked me if I was interested in receiving a “Flu Shot”. I never had one – never heard about the possible “side effects”. Let’s just say that one shot, that one simple afternoon, DESTROYED my entire Life. There is a good chance that I have developed GBS,SOLELY due to this Flu Vaccination. My Nerves are damaging themselves and I just might end up Paralyzed. Now, if the Pharmacist had simply informed me of the SEVERE Side Effects of the Influenza Shot….. This Teacher should be PRAISED for what he is doing. He just might save some of these students from the rare chance of being duly Paralyzed!

      I completely agree with you Finn. Shouldn’t developing critical thinking skills be supported?!

      Also, I think the important focus should be on the SAFETY of vaccines – note the alleged efficacy of them. Unless the vaccine manufacturers can guarantee 100% safety (that is NO POTENTIAL FOR HARM), then babies and children should NOT be injected with them. Parents need to spend more time investigating the ingredients in vaccines and making informed decisions about whether they want to expose their children to many of the KNOWN side effects.

      You are also correct about the CDC having patents on several vaccines. There is also an ‘incestuous’ relationship between the CDC and the pharmaceutical companies….it a ‘system’ that operates on cronyism and cannot be trusted to put the health of children above the pursuit of the hundreds of billions of dollars in profit annually.

    Informed consent is not necessary for the administration of immunizations in the U.S. according to the CDC, unless state law requires it. In its place is something called a “Vaccine Information Statement”, which is a form that provides “enough information that anyone reading them should be adequately informed”. The CDC, on its VIS webpage, is clear in pointing out that the VIS is not an informed consent document, which explicitly indicates that the patient or patient’s parent consents to the procedure. One may question the motivation behind leaving out the consent part. Apparently at the federal level one has no legal recourse to refuse the shots.

      Not is there not informed consent, a parent is ‘told’ they have to sign a document that states THEY are putting their child’s life at risk if they choose not to vaccinate! I encourage every parent refusing vaccines to also refuse to sign that form! Doing so invites the doctor’s office to call DSS/DCF to report you for child neglect! I’ve seen it happen.

      The real reason doctors push so hard for vaccinations? Profit. They are paid large sums of money by insurance companies for reaching a set high percentage of meeting vaccination quotas – often to the tune of tens of thousands of dollars annually.

    My daughter came down with Thrombocytopenia (also known as Ideopathic/Immune Thrombocytopenic Purpura or ITP for short)in August of 1990, 3-4 weeks after her MMR and DPT shots given at age 19 months. Both MMR and Diptheria can cause ITP.
    I did not know at the time it was the shots. We spent 7 years taking her to Children’s Hospital for treatments before she finally went into remission.
    One of the Hematology doctors was able to get a $25k grant to study blood work on ITP patients. (This is a very small amount!). She asked all ITP patients for consent and my daughter donated 4 vials of blood. What this doc found out was that every single patient at that time who had ITP and who donated blood (over 150 children, only two did not) had a mutation on their 6th Y chromosome. I know she had to have written a paper on this- this was back in 1997 or 1998, yet there does not seem to be anything about this. I still have our paperwork we got back stating this fact.
    The CDC has stated that vaccines are ‘unavoidably dangerous’- which means people should be fully informed.
    I will write this principal because people need to be informed.
    Clear back in 1975 when I had my first child I was hesitant about giving my kids vaccines but did not know how to apply for an exemption or how to explain why I wanted one. Too late now for my kids, but not for my grandkids. Many of my grandkids have been vaccinated, but just as many have not.

    I would just like to drop this little comment. I consider myself moderate leaning liberal, and I COMPLETELY believe that not only does Mr. Sullivan have the right to teach critical thinking in this case, but I also believe that vaccination is a personal choice that a person should completely be allowed to opt out of, for yourself and your kids.

    Critical thinking should never be restricted to one political viewpoint or another, and I believe that in allowing ourselves to be divided we’re letting Big Pharma make us point fingers at each other, instead of them.

    I am an admitted anti-vaxxer but I know that you don’t gain anything by being overly forceful with your views. The best way to influence others is with calm and thoughtful rhetoric and by presenting indisputable facts. From the articles published in the press, it sounds as though Timothy Sullivan overstepped his professional bounds by yelling at students not to get vaccinated and intimidating the nurse administering the vaccines. All this does is play right into the hands of the pro-vaccination movement who then turn around and blast anti-vaxxers for being unbalanced and unscientific.

    The punishing of Mr. Sullivan, a teacher, sends a chilling message to other teachers. The message is to comply with an industry and conform to it’s advertising. Vaccines which should not be issued in a school setting in the first place. Medical procedures are best left for parents to decide outside of any classroom. The Pharmaceutical Industry has pushed for school vaccinations specifically because it removes the parent’s discernment. Most parents would make an effort to read and understand the risks involved in any vaccination. Even doctors and nurses should make more effort to understand the procedure, the product and the possible repercussions.

    Outrageous! Shame on the school board, and kudos to Mr. Sullivan. Terrible that his job is at risk. It is overreactions like this that make me MORE skeptical about the motives of the medical establishment and government. I am not completely against all vaccinations, but I am absolutely for truly informed consent. The fact that they have to hide information should be eye-opening to all. Why isn’t it like the tv commercials for medicine, where the majority of air time seems to be telling you about so many side effects that it makes you think only desperate people would ever try that medicine. Instead with vaccinations, side effects are barely mentioned, and if they are, risk of death and lifelong injury is minimized and considered improper to actually highlight and meaningfully discuss risks to individuals ans need for thoughtful consideration of individual risk and benefit.

    • Kelly Reply

      March 10, 2017 at 9:39 am

      The reason that it’s not like tv commercials is because in the US, drug companies and doctors have zero liability with vaccination injuries due to a 1980’s law. However, the drugs they advertise on tv could get them sued.
      In my opinion, this is one of the biggest issues with vaccinations–and I think that very few people have any clue about this.
      I think a lot more people would think twice about blindly following what the doc says if they knew that he has no liability and the drug company doesn’t either.

        The insurance industry is based on Risk Assessment. Does any one believe that they would have allowed the Govt. to assume the risk for vaccines if their was any way that they could make money selling liability premiums for vaccine damage. Publicly owned corps. are required by law to make every attempt to make a profit for their shareholders.
        The Risk Experts could see no way to assume this risk at any price so the Govt. had to step in. So we are supposed to ignore the actions of the Risk Experts and follow the advice of the medical establishment who is responsible for a quarter million deaths per year from their mistakes. The American vaccination program is the greatest crime against humanity in the history of the world. Assaulting new born babies is as low as it gets.

    I, too, have tremendous praise for Mr. Sullivan. Only the meek stay silent in the face of evil. Mr. Sullivan has demonstrated sincere concern for those students and should be commended for his forsight and dedication to students. People need to stop arguing efficacy and begin to acknowledge lack of SAFETY when it comes to the issue of vaccines.

      He’s not a hero. He’s just the 1 in a 1000 that actually read the insert and not the pro vaccine page provided by the hospitals and such. All you have to do is read the insert right there in front of the doctor, that answers any anti vax argument. Do not let anyone pull you into an argument about the safety of the vaccine products without having or providing the insert. How to win a vaccine argument; “Show me the manufacturers insert!” They will of course lie and tell you they do not have it. Game over.

    Thank you for your courage, Mr.Sullivan. You found out later you were more right that you realized when you gave your very appropriate warning. It is people who push and blindly promote vaccines that deserve to be punished, not you. They deserve to be informed of the facts but apparently they don’t want to know the facts and they don’t want their victims to know them either. Like 1940’s soldiers, they are just following orders blindly.

    This story brought us informed consent and we are all able to make a decision. These kids were college kids and considered adults. Lets hope informed consent is no longer honored.

    Yes, heaven forbid the teens should be fully informed of the dangers of the vaccines! What a dreadful hindrance to the toxifying program of the NWO agenda pushers.

    The vaccine manufacturing industry already has a monopoly on a gold mine, they need to be held to the highest standard possible,.., not the standard of the biggest profit margin possible, with no liabilities. Until then , I can not trust them to have the well being of others as their primary interest.

      In free market systems the products are successful because of consumer demand. In socialistic systems you are forced to purchase the product because it’s the law. It’s the difference between free market republic democracy and tyrannical communism. Henceforth all pharmaceutical companies are hereby labeled as communists. It’s a fact vs fiction argument. My money, my body, my choice. Forcing vaccination through legal is in fact; taxation without representation.

      A truly ignorant question. “We the People, in order to insure a more perfect union,…” The Declaration and the Constitution are both available at hobby lobby for 10 dollars a piece nifty large posters, or also available through any number of publications over the past 240 something years and then some… The question correctly posed is; When will we finally reign in this tyrannical government whom is not respecting the will of the people and operating under a just and balanced system of representative democracy; aka We The People. Corporations are not people, they should have not power to control us like this. Therefore, we refuse to acknowledge any law they pass as legitimate. The entire NVIC community is properly described as conscientious objectors.

    I am vaccine damaged [ Asperger Syndrome ] and one thing is clear: what goes in your mouth [breastmilk] is better in creating immunity in children, rather than puncturing them with needles, which cause their brain’s MICROGLIA to go on alert. Get enough injections and the mitochondria of the microglia begin to attenuate and finally die. Thimerosal and aluminium hydroxide in vaccines are the culprits, and also formaldyhide and stealth viruses and peste viruses [ bovine viruses ].

      There is some encouraging news regarding natural chelation using cilantro, garlic, and the process of stripping heaving metals from deep tissue neurological systems. It never hurts to try.

    I had a severe reaction to the Rubella Vaccine, and when I confronted the OBGYN physicians that I worked with not one of the 12 of them were informed of the possible side affects. It wasn’t until I presented them with the insert and then they finally believed me my symptoms were from the vaccine.

    I want to commend Mr.Sullivan for taking the initiative to inform the students of these possibilities. Yes there parents signed the form without having any of the knowledge of the side affects, I’m sure it wasn’t on the form making them aware of the possibilities!!!

    Mr. Sullivan needs to be praised for this not reprimanded, quit bowing to Big Pharma. We need more teachers like him.

      Facts in truthful stories from real people. In this instance the medical ‘professionals’ were so well informed, 0 of 12 of them had actually read the insert. “Show me the insert!”

    This is just Bull shit!!! This teacher has a huge concern for the children he teaches …and he stood up and spoke up!! A true warrior.

    He should absolutely not lose his credentials or anything else for that matter.

    This is a very important topic and parents, students, the public needs to be informed as to the dangers of vaccination or any pharmaceutical prescribed.

    So often our childre, even adults are the testing ground for this medications…and then after death, they are removed.

    This is about money and not people. What happened to the oath taken in medical school!!!

    To clarify my earlier comment…the difference between a Socialist Nation and a Communist Nation is basically this…in a Socialist Nation,vaccinations are free to all who choose to get them. In a Communist Nation the vaccinations are free but there is no choice to get them.

      Well…yes…and no! Just as there is no such thing as a free lunch, there is really also no such thing as a free vaccine! Vaccines may be free of charge, but the government-sponsored vaccine poisoning programmes are actually fully tax-payer funded – including the cost of the vaccines, the vaccination propaganda used to brainwash the public into believing that vaccinations prevent diseases, the entire infrastructure and also compensation for vaccine-induced injuries and deaths.

        Erwin….sorry,but in our time there most certainly IS such a thing as a free lunch. There is also such a thing as free vaccinations. We all know that the taxpayers pay ALL of the bills but when the receivers of ‘goods and services’ pay nothing, then, in essence, they are free.

    YEP… I know the feeling… I’m retired now Thank Goodness… but I was reprimanded and even wrote up for showing my students in Health Science Technology a course (an elective) that prepares students for health careers… the same information… especially when we were on the topic of medical ethics.. about “INFORMED CONSENT”…

    Praising Mr. Sullivan for trying to show parents/ students – both sides of the story- being informed. I wish there were more like him. This is a very Sad story…and hopefully he will get on with his Life and never regret that he was just there to TEACH.

    Big Pharma will try to silence anyone from talking about vaccine risks. Doctors will tell you vaccines are entirely safe.

    Vaccines will only become safe when we repeal the 1986 law that protects vaccine makers.

    Please sign this petition http://petitions.moveon.org/sign/repeal-immunity-for-drug
    and let everyone you know as well.

      Restoring liability for vaccine makers would certainly be an incentive for them to make vaccines safer, but as the US Supreme Court has noted, “vaccines are unavoidably unsafe.” There will never be a “safe vaccine” because vaccines are biochemical agents and will therefore always carry the risk of injury and/or death.

        If they were held liable tomorrow it would not excuse the grave and offensive crime of denying a human being the right to choose.
