Doctor Punished for Falsifying vaccination
Dr. Mark Nesselson, a New York pediatrician who conspired with families to get their children into school without state-mandated vaccinations, has been fined $10,000 and told he can practice only under supervision. Dr. Nesselson admitted to falsifying forms for four children in two families, and later admitted that he had done the same for a handful of other families over the years.
The parents of his patients, who knew Nesselson was falsifying the forms, were concerned about the potential adverse health effects of vaccines.
Nesselson began to question the safety of vaccines in the 1990ís, after seeing many autistic children whose parents said that the onset of the disorder coincided with vaccinations.
Nesselsonís actions were discovered after he moved to Hawaii two years ago and gave medical records to his patients' parents to take to their new doctors. A new pediatrician seen by two families turned Nesselson in.

Dr. Mercola's Comments:
With the more recent news flashes of parents being threatened with jail time if they donít vaccinate their children, this story will probably strike a sympathetic cord with many.
No doubt Dr. Nesselsonís heart was in the right place, although itís difficult to justify falsifying medical records. After all, even though you may get some evil looks, or worse, be verbally harassed by doctors or nurses, you do have the right to refuse vaccinations
by requesting opt-out forms.
There are two basic axioms you should never forget. They are the rock upon which all your actions are based.
1. Nobody, anywhere or any time and under any circumstances has the right or power in this country to immunize you or your children against your will and conviction. If they attempt to do so, you can legally charge them with "assault with a deadly weapon" and have the full resources of our laws behind you.
2. At all times in attempting to avoid unwanted immunization, you have the Law of the Land behind you. Those who would try to vaccinate you against your will are on very shaky ground. Into every compulsory immunization law in America are written legal exceptions and waivers which are there specifically to protect you from the attempted tyranny of officialdom. It is not only your right, but your obligation to use them, if this is what your conscience tells you.
While all 50 states have immunization requirements, 28 allow parents to opt out for medical or religious reasons. Another 20 states allow parents to opt out for personal or philosophical reasons as well, while Mississippi and West Virginia allow parents to opt out for medical reasons only.
My previous article, How to Avoid Unwanted Immunizations of All Kinds lays out your opt-out steps in greater detail. There is also an entire chapter in my book Take Control of Your Health devoted to this very topic, including what you should know before vaccinating, and what to do if you decide not to.
Personally, I believe itís better to have accurate records, and to be able to show just how many people are opposed to this unnecessary, and potentially disastrous practice of childhood vaccinations. Fortunately, the number of parents opting out is growing, as more and more parents are beginning to question its validity and sanity.
And rightfully so.
Vaccines given to newborns contain an array of potentially toxic chemicals including:
Aluminum phosphate (toxic and carcinogenic)
Phenols (corrosive to skin and toxic)
Live viruses and various other components
So there are plenty of harmful ingredients that would put vaccination
benefits into question. If you are on the fence about immunizations and have yet to decide if they are something you or your family should have, I would strongly encourage you to carefully examine the evidence.
This is not a choice you want to make without careful deliberation, as the consequences can be quite severe. So, review the literature and reach YOUR OWN conclusions. You are responsible for your own health, and that of your young children.
But whatever you do, maintain an open and questioning mind, to avoid being manipulated and deceived by multinational corporations that do not have your or your family's best interests at heart.
