Fainting, also known as syncope, can occur after vaccination. It is usually harmless in itself, although it can lead to injuries if the affected person falls, which can happen if they are not sitting or lying down at the moment of fainting. Episodes of vasovagal syncope are often triggered by pain and/or anxiety, which can lead to changes in heart rate and blood flow, resulting in a temporary loss of consciousness. The sight of blood or a needle can also trigger vasovagal syncope. Fainting following vaccination is not necessarily indicative of problems with the vaccine itself.

Multiple studies have established that vaccines are safe and not associated with increased rates of autism, cancer, or infertility. The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act does not prevent people from suing a vaccine manufacturer for vaccine injuries. The U.S. Department of Health Resources and Services Administration explains that “Although the Act provides liability protections to vaccine manufacturers and vaccine administrators who administer covered vaccines in many circumstances, these protections are not absolute.” For instance, the Act does not provide manufacturers protection “when an individual files a petition and is requesting damages of $1,000 or less.” These protections also don’t hold if a vaccine manufacturer has been shown to be negligent.
Large-scale, reputable studies did not find a greater incidence of adverse health outcomes in vaccinated children compared to unvaccinated children. The authors of the study cited as the basis for this claim created a new metric that was not validated as a reliable proxy indicator to compare the incidence of illness in vaccinated and unvaccinated children. Due to this, the conclusions of the study are questionable.
Large-scale, reputable studies have not found a greater incidence of adverse health outcomes in vaccinated children compared to unvaccinated children. A significant problem with the single study cited in this claim is its failure to control for differences between vaccinated and unvaccinated children, such as healthcare-seeking behavior, which can factor into health outcomes. Furthermore, the study used patient data from handpicked pediatric clinics only, which are not representative of the general population.
Vaccines do not cause autism or mercury toxicity. The amount of mercury that infants receive through their diet is more than twice the amount ever contained in vaccines. Scientific evidence shows that autism spectrum disorder (ASD) arises through a combination of genetics and environment. Twin studies demonstrate a strong heritable component to ASD, with heritability estimates ranging from about 30 to 90%. Many genes involved in ASD risk are associated with brain and neuronal development.
A wide array of studies examining different vaccines, including the ones specified in ICAN’s lawsuit, demonstrate that there is no association between vaccines and autism.
The claim that one vaccine injury occurs for every 39 vaccines administered is based on VAERS data. However, VAERS data only tells us that an adverse event occurred after vaccination; on its own it cannot prove that vaccines caused the adverse event. A vast body of scientific literature demonstrates that vaccines are safe.
Studies have shown that the inactivated flu vaccine is safe for pregnant women and their unborn children. It also reduces the likelihood of influenza-related complications during pregnancy for both mothers and their infants.
The HPV vaccine has an excellent safety profile, as shown by studies conducted in different parts of the world on millions of people. These studies found no association between the HPV vaccine and serious adverse events such as autoimmune and neurological diseases.
The MMR vaccine does not reduce fertility nor does it cause increases mortality. The vaccine also saves lives. All three facts taken together show that the MMR vaccine does not cause depopulation.
