Kami Altenberg Schaal has been a professional nurse for 22 years. She is pro-vaccine. She gets the flu shot every year as a requirement for her employment, and she vaccinates her family.

Kami acknowledges that even though she believes in vaccines, the science is always being challenged and there are risks, and that it is disingenuous for anyone to say that all the science has been settled when it comes to vaccines, which results in pointing fingers and blaming others.

Science and medicine is continually evolving.

There’s so much we don’t know. Everybody … physiologically is different. And we don’t understand everything.

Let me tell you, there are things I did as a nurse, 20 years ago, in one of the most incredible intensive care units in the country – and there were things that we did that were standards of care that have been disproved by science, that we found were not as effective as we thought they were. Or they may have led to an increase in morbidity and fatalities.

The things that we believed that were like the “gold standard” in medicine, we disprove all the time.

Science does not equal truth. We disprove science all the time.

Her entire family has been vaccinated with the MMR vaccine, and yet 4 out of 5 members of her family came down with the mumps. Her daughter is a freshman in college, and got the mumps from school.

I was like, what? There is no way that you have mumps. You have been vaccinated! I totally dismissed it.

I was proven wrong. She ended up with the mumps.

She isolated her daughter for 5 days (“I know how to isolate a patient, I’m a nurse”), and reported her case to the department of health.

All the members of her family also got booster shots of the MMR vaccine.

17 days after her daughter’s exposure, her husband and son woke up with mumps.

After notifying the health department, Kami notified her son’s school district as well.

What happened next was apparently something she had not anticipated. Even though her family was fully vaccinated and she followed all the proper medical protocols for dealing with the mumps, many people in her community began to blame her, including some of her medical colleagues, for not vaccinating their children (even though she had!)

The assumption that almost everyone seems to make is that when an outbreak occurs, it is always related to the unvaccinated spreading the disease.

It is so easy to blame somebody else, and just assume they made a wrong choice, the bad choice, then to realize that you are at risk. To realize that maybe you do not understand and do not have all of the information you need to make good choices.

These diseases are not eradicated. They are here.

Kami points out that the MMR is supposedly only 88% effective against the mumps, so 12% fully vaccinated can still spread it. In a university setting like where he daughter goes to school with 40,000 students, that is a lot of potential carriers among the fully vaccinated.

Finally, Kami herself woke up with the mumps. She had been tested and was supposedly immune. She had taken the booster. But she ended up getting the mumps anyway.

I literally lost my mind. I called the department of health nurse, and I said, “This is absolute craziness. What is happening?”

And she said that they are learning in the trenches. “We don’t know what we don’t know.”

The department of health nurse was required to send out another letter to the school district, so Kami asked the nurse if she could “put the truth” in the letter to the school district that her son was vaccinated, because she feared being blamed in error, once again, for not vaccinating her children.

The nurse allegedly replied “no.”

They will not put that in a letter, because it could give the anti-vaxx movement some fodder.

So they would not protect my family by saying we did the right things, so I had to protect my family. I’m the one who has to defend my family.

Leaving a lucrative career as a nephrologist (kidney doctor), Dr. Suzanne Humphries is now free to actually help cure people.

In this autobiography she explains why good doctors are constrained within the current corrupt medical system from practicing real, ethical medicine.

One of the sane voices when it comes to examining the science behind modern-day vaccines, no pro-vaccine extremist doctors have ever dared to debate her in public.
