Vaccinated children are more likely to be diagnosed with developmental delays, asthma, and ear infections. A new peer-reviewed study by Hooker and Miller in the journal SAGE Open Medicine compares the health outcomes of vaccinated versus unvaccinated children from three large pediatric practices in the United States. The study concludes that unvaccinated children are healthier than their vaccinated peers. The researchers examined medical records for over 2000 children born between November 2005 and June 2015. The scientists followed the children continuously for a minimum of 3 years from birth. The research team determined each child’s vaccination status based on any vaccination received prior to one year of age. The unvaccinated group represented 30.9% of the total. Results show that vaccination before one year of age led to significantly increased odds of medical diagnoses for developmental delays, asthma and ear infections.

All of them show dramatically better health in unvaccinated children. We have found no studies that show superior health outcomes in vaccinated children.
