    Thank you to all who participated and to Firedoglake for hosting us. We always enjoy communicating about the issue and sharing our insights.

    While we are both interested in other advocacy work and film we are seriously committed to the outreach campaign revolving around The Greater Good. At this time our film has been seen by approximately 1.5 million people and we have a goal of 10 million. Making the film was only the first step. Getting it seen and helping guide others to educate about vaccines is our priority right now.

    I’d also like to encourage people to host a screening of our film. Our website will guide those interested to help make each screening a success. It’s a great way to share information with your community and is guaranteed to evoke interesting conversation.

    I’ll never forget when I heard fermaldahyde was used in vaccines, not to mention antibiotics, Polysorbate 80, monkey kidney’s, chicken embryos, calf serum, etc…
    I find it so scary to inject these directly into the blood stream even if advocates say they are in small doses and we’ve never done any large clinical trials to assertion safety either signally or in combination.

    Science shows that vaccines can fail. It’s just not as simple as saying vaccines are the answer because disease is so horrible. We all agree we want what’s best for our loved ones and no one wants to get Polio. However, it’s always frustrating when I think of all the vaccine injuries that somehow are overlooked. We have no idea how many people are injured by vaccines in this country compared to how many people are injured by disease. What we do know is 54 % of children have a chronic illness and research links many of those illnesses to vaccines.

    In addition to the film we have a catalog of science on our website http://www.greatergoodmovie.org that is extremely helpful if one wants to know more about the science. I find this can really help support those who have seen our film and need something in front of them to discuss with doctors and family members.

    The problem is it is anyone’s guess as to who will be injured and who will not. We are really advocating for more research and would drove to see a vaccinated vs. non-vaccinated study to show the health outcome. I think it’s important to group together and advocate for individual right when it comes to health care workers being vaccinated against their will.

    Jordan and his family are doing well although I don’t believe there has been much of a change in his condition. His mother and father worry greatly about his future and how he will be cared for if something happens to them. It becomes more difficult as he ages…

    I truly support your practice of eating right and taking good care to avoid getting sick. Yes, so many people have said they were nervous to be vaccinated and then they were berated by their doctors and often times influenced by family members. There are so many cases where the parent had an instinct not to vaccinate and then after being “convinced” sometimes by threat of being thrown out of a practice, their child was injured.

    If vaccines work there shouldn’t be a risk to your child unless your child is too young to get a certain vaccine.

    As filmmakers we choose not to discuss what we have chosen for our own children publicly. We don’t want to influence others by our personal choices and really believe each individual or family needs to make their own decisions. What’s right for one family may not be the same for another.

    Including the years of research it took us 10 years to make the film, with about 4 years of actual production. We filmed with Gabi and our other families many times. It was important for us to follow Gabi’s story to see what happened to her over time. Today she is in college and doing reasonably well. She is off many of the medicines now and we hope she will continue to improve health wise. She has been seizure free for a little over a year. She and her family have done everything possible to improve her health including radically changing her diet.

    The reason for the title is “who decides who should be used for the greater good.” The bottom line is vaccines do harm certain people. Federal law recognizes this. I wish everyone would take the time to explore this issue and make an informed choice for themselves. Ignoring this topic is a huge mistake. It’s not easy, but well worth the time and research necessary to make an educated choice.

    Gabi is one of the most incredible people I have ever met. She received 3 Gardasil shots and after each shot her health declined. She went from being a straight A student and gymnist to having serious heath problems including memory loss, strokes, seizures, etc.

    My child is 6 yard old and I became interested when my family had to make the choice about vaccinations. This is when I met my partner on the film Leslie Manookian and she engaged me to make the documentary.
