Vaccination has save millions of lives across the world since its introduction in the early 20th century. To this day, vaccination has become a common medical practice particularly for children ages 6 and below. However, despite the many benefits of vaccination, several studies warn the public about the possible long-term side effects of vaccination. Several researches suggest that vaccination could be the culprit behind several immune or neurological disorders as a reaction to the vaccine components.
In the 2009 documentary Shot in the Dark – Silence on Vaccine, the film gives a sobering look at how vaccination could be directly responsible for certain cases of autism, multiple sclerosis, Guillain-Barré syndrome, macrophagic myofasciitis, encephalitis, paralysis and neuropathies. The film reveals how harmful toxins such as mercury and aluminum, are common components of vaccines used as preservatives.
Shot in the Dark – Silence on Vaccine highlights how the government and large pharmaceutical companies are denying the controversy surrounding vaccination despite perfunctory studies on vaccines that dates back to the late 1920s.
