I was sent a story from Fox News on the cost of a single case of tetanus: $800G. I wondered, “What is cost of vaccine injury to society?“. The journey started with a simple question posted to CensorBook:
“Does anyone have a breakdown of the medical and other costs of your child’s vaccine injury?”
Most people probably think there is a cost for speech therapy, supplements, cost of chelation if one can find a willing doctor, extra baby sitters. All of the responses were from parent of kids with autism.
Here are some responses:
“Between what we’ve paid out of pocket, what insurance has paid and the amount the school district has paid we are closing in on $1 million in just 7 years. 😳😡”
“If I went back and added it all up from early intervention days, therapies, special ed preschool, kindergarten to 21 years old in a 6-1 classroom with daily minibus, Medicaid services, SSDI, adult dayhab and self direction, I’m guessing it has cost the taxpayers hundred of thousand of dollars if not millions. Astronomical cost over her lifetime.”
“Ours is over $300,000 with 6 wheelchairs. 2 sport & 2 outgrown, 2 current use.”
“My total is almost at 1 million between insurance and private pay for medical, therapy and supplies covered by insurance, cash and grants for two vaccine injured kids ages 6 and 8.”
“Therapy per week: $1700 x 6 years (roughly, thank god insurance covers this): $530,400 to date. Supplements per week: $25ish x4 years: $5,200 to date. Not including gas to get the therapy and doctors appointments, time spent on IEPs and waitlists for therapy, glasses for 4 years, special diet, etc”
“I added mine it was $580,000.”
“For one year combined out of pocket and what is covered by insurance is approximately $275,000. Multiply by number of years = over $6.6 million.”
So who fronts the bill for autism costs? If the parents have insurance, insurance premiums are no doubt raised. One poster summed it up:
“Just so you know, I tell pro jabbers to keep working and paying taxes They need to support my kid who took one for the herd.”
If parents do not have insurance, they are out of luck:
“The cost would be higher if I could afford anything. The iPads alone for communication were a struggle.”
In fact, many of the families I know who have children whose medical condition they attribute to vaccination – whether the medical community concurs or not – live in abject poverty. From time to time, I’ve collected shopper’s gift cards and sent them, especially around the holidays. Remember, these families took one for the herd. Some have had to turn to help from the child’s grandparents.
“A million here. My dad gave me a credit card to use for it all long ago. We used 2-4K a month for a decade. That doesn’t include what we paid for ourselves.”
By my estimation, in the US, vaccine injuries have easily cost society hundreds of billions of dollars if not over a trillion since 1986. Only a paltry $4Billion has been paid out by HHS for vaccine injury claims in National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program – which is hostile to awarding for any vaccine injury not found on the table. And the HHS’s medical doctors play with diagnoses to move injury claims from on-table to off-table. I’ve been in the NVICP as an expert witness. It’s absolutely corrupt and totally biased against giving awards. Most Americans do not know about the NVICP – even though their doctors are supposed to – by law – inform them of the programs.
“Now we have a grandson we’re caring for as well. It’s incredibly expensive – and our kids don’t believe they could file a lawsuit. They have one more year before the statute runs out.”
The participants in the discussion were prescient:
“Wow. Looking at just these few responses I am stunned at the dollar amounts. And even those who have insurance that covers some, how long can the system keep doing that when there are more and more kids with serious vax injuries every day. For their lifetimes. This hurts my heart and y’all are in my thoughts and prayers💔💔💔”
Some didn’t want to know:
“I’m afraid to even attempt to add it up. And mine is less than most. Therapy weekly, dietary needs, dietary enzymes, weekly chiropractor visits.”
But the costs mount regardless:
“I would also say about a million this far. Between early intervention that had to paid out of pocket due to my son ‘not being disabled enough’…
“Oh my goodness….I haven’t counted what we’ve spent outside the $150k in loans we have for alternative doctors, fees, traveling and treatments. That is just for alternative medicine. We’ve done traditional therapies for 14.5 years straight…”
“I have never added it all up. It would be so depressing to do so. $3000,00/month for two years for ABA therapy, thousands of dollars for speech therapy, occupational therapy , doctors visits, supplements and it caused his type 1 diabetes…
“Psyche eval in teens to get proper schooling and placement was $2,000 each. Speech in one $180 a week for 5 years OT on two averaged $1,000 a month. Younger evaluations for ADHD around $4,000 . None of it covered by insurance. That’s just a snapshot…
Consumer Reports says the US is #1 in health care costs -which of course means #1 in health care provider profits.
In the discussion on costs, the poster who saw the problem most clearly said it best:
“I dont think there is a cost put on a parent’s sanity.”
Watch for Part Two of “Vaccine Injury is Free – If You Deny It” with a guest article by a parent who has done full accounting since her case was booted from the NVICP in the autism Ominus hearings.
And, ironically, according to the CDC themselves, the tetanus shot has never even been tested to prove that it WORKS. They just ASSUME it works because we don’t see tetanus very often. Even among the consistently bad logic of the vaccine industry, that’s exceptionally absurd.
More absurd the CDC states on their website that there is no diagnostic test for tetanus.
Gotta love that “evidence-based” medicine, right?
Eloa Doner The worst part is when the doctors gave the kid, who had tetanus, the DTaP and the kid got worse. I can not think of a reason to keep their employment because I do not believe this is a mistake or poor judgement. We could be saving at least their annual salary.
Because they should have been giving him the TIG, not the DTaP. It’s insane they don’t know that giving a vaccine after the fact is useless. They’re just so utterly brainwashed they now believe vaccines are cures for things when, if they work at all, they’re a preventative. Once you’ve got the disease, they’re useless. And of course giving one to someone already fighting off the disease is going to get worse, they just screwed over the immune system & made it have to fight a battle on multiple fronts.
it’s absolutely insane. don’t know what the situation is here inn europe. i’ve had a few serum shots when i was young, crazy enough, once for a bruise!!!
losing all respect for doctors in any case.
All countries listed in the above graph have relatively high vacccine compliance rates (vaccine uptake, as they say). If these rates are comparable across countries I would think the unusually high per capita health care costs for the U.S. would be mostly attributed to their private for-profit health care system. Every industrialized country in the world, lets say the G8, has some form of socialized and universal medical insurance, except for the United States. England has something of a hybrid system. So, it comes down mostly to good old greed in the case of high medical costs in the U.S. As a Canadian I sit back and scratch my head at how many U.S. Americans DEMAND the status quo; they demand the right to have to drain their bank accounts, sell their homes and live in their cars to pay for some life saving medical treatments for their child, lest they become swallowed up by the great Satan, Socialism.
fascism this is.
In Oregon, I worked as a Personal Support Worker for the disabled. Children with pretty severe Autism (but not house bound and can still go to school) get 150 hours a month of support care. This equals $30,600 a year just for the wages, not program costs. Just this tiny piece of Autism expenses is pushing $500,000 until adulthood, but it wouldn’t stop there, of course. In fact, this cost will increase at adulthood bc they will qualify for more help since the parent is not linger responsible for care. And, the family I know with a child with severe Autism and epilepsy get many more hours of support than that.
Here is a list of 607 adjudicated vaccine injury compensation payments, with links to the court decisions, and that is only from one of 140 approved by the vaccine court. https://www.mctlaw.com/vaccine-injury/cases/
