Reason why child was not vaccinated: (multiple answers possible)

Researched the vaccination topic intensively:
Fear of vaccination injuries or side effects:
Vaccinations do not protect/ weaken the immune system:
Bad experiences with vaccinations of one's own:
Homeopathy disagrees with vaccinations:
Interference in natural progression / confidence in life:
Already have existing allergies or skin rashes:
Increase in allergies and distinctive features in the children:
Unvaccinated children are healthier:
No reasons given on the part of the pediatrician/ traditional medicine:
6 vaccinations are too many:
Read Dr. Gerhard Buchwald:
Other reasons:
I, the mother, am also not vaccinated
Involved with Dr. Stefan Lanka
Child is a premature birth
Vaccination is an establishment of fear
Skepticism of traditional medicine and pharmaceuticals
Because it is up to my child
Do not want to treat my child in a negligent and undeserving manner
Want to vaccinate later (not before 2 or 3 years of age)
Vaccinations jeopardize mental and psychic development
Child was born via Caesarean section
Child has heart defects
Fear of remote damages
Doctor advised against vaccination
Why should he be vaccinated?
Mother is health counselor following Dr. Bruker
Do not want to vaccinate in the first few years in order to build up the immune system
Am convinced that in Germany, vaccinations are too fast and without reason
Doctor almost forces one to vaccinate - that cannot be right
Pharmaceuticals think only of profit and not health
My child should contract children’s diseases
My child should have lifelong immunity
Grandmother was already critical of vaccinations
Recommendation of the doctor
At first, no, due to underdevelopment of the immune system, then “no vaccination material that we can say yes to”
To avoid poisoning of the small body and brain
Experience of a colleague with their unvaccinated children

Additional information:
In Austria there is no exact/more recent information as to how many children in general
suffer under the above mentioned diseases. The following statistics were accessible to me,
next to them are the unvaccinated children from our questionnaire in %:

Every 10th child in Salzburg has asthma = 10% -
unvaccinated children = 0%

Every 4th person in Austria has an allergy = 25% -
unvaccinated children = 2.9%

Every 10th school child suffers from attention deficit disorder (ADD) = 10% - unvaccinated
children 0.17%, if hyperactivity included 1.37%

Whether vaccinations are linked to the above mentioned afflictions is not clear. Certainly
these are not the only causes. Pregnancy, birth, nutrition, psyche, family circumstances,
etc. affect the body in different ways.

Specific cases:

An unvaccinated child died of SIDS at 5 months.

A mother became sick at age 41 despite vaccination against rubella.

A father was vaccinated many times approximately a year after birth with genetically
manipulated vaccination material, daughter has chromosomal developmental retardation.
The older daughter is developing normally.

An unvaccinated child received a passive tetanus vaccination, no adverse effects on health.

From the writings of a mother whose daughter was born with Down syndrome: I truly
became convinced at the handicapped school where my daughter (…) was enrolled and where
I was invited to a parents' discussion. The parents whose children were not handicapped from
birth could not explain why their children are suddenly handicapped. This makes me scared,
and my decision not to vaccinate my children was then guaranteed."

Many thanks to all parents who participated in our questionnaire!

Thanks to all who eagerly distributed the survey.
Questionnaires or updated analysis at:

As a result of the inquiries of several parents, I would like to first emphasize:

I know that the questionnaire covers only a small area of health of unvaccinated children. Birth conditions,
nursing, nutrition, lifestyle, taking of antibiotics, etc. were not considered. This is mainly because the questionnaire
could not be longer than a page because it had to be voluntarily copied and distributed by unpaid involved parents.
Furthermore, in the last 12 months, aspects of non-vaccinations have come up by means of the questionnaire
activities of which I really had not considered previously. One of these is the question of whether unvaccinated
children have more frequent signs of higher aptitude than the vaccinated, and if so, whether this actually comes
from non-vaccination. It was always emphasized in the questionnaire that the children were quite mentally

Should you have access to statistics about the health conditions of vaccinated children (as a comparison group), or
to a questionnaire that is associated with ours, please let me know about the data so that I can share it next time.
Thank you!
