It is a quiet morning in the primary healthcare unit of Kamasondo village, Port Loko district, Sierra Leone. Today is the first day for all newborns to get vaccinated, but only a few mothers with their babies show up. The community is still scared to go back to the health centre. When the Ebola outbreak was raging in the village, the Kamasondo health centre was turned into a holding centre for Ebola patients and most health services, including immunization, were suspended. What initially started as a slow day ended as a success. More than 45 healthy babies received two vaccines – Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) and pentavalent vaccine – to protect them against tuberculosis, haemophilus influenza type b, whooping cough, tetanus, hepatitis B and diphtheria.

I wonder how many babies died from the vaccines. I wonder how many children got a high fever and had seizures from the vaccines. Once you learn how vaccines are made and what are in them, you know they are genocide. They create new diseases, far worse diseases, from the what are in the vaccines. I wonder how mother's you gave information to, regarding the possible side effects, including death.
