We Stand for Freedom of Choice In Vaccination For All Europeans


Jannes Koetsier


Dr. Jannes Koetsier has conducted research into vaccination for many years. More recently, he has prepared second opinion reports for more than thirty parents accused of shaking their babies. In approximately 25% of these cases, he discovered that childhood vaccination was the most likely cause of the so-called ‘shaken-baby’ injuries sustained by the babies. There are of course other causes, again not properly researched by paediatricians, which can trigger such injuries: birth trauma, viral infection, rare hereditary disease, thrombocytopaenia, liver disease, parat-hormone-problems, tubulary-acidosis. The work Dr. Koetsier did for these parents resulted in their creation of a website where everything he has published on this topic.

In 2016, he also completed a documentary on the shaken-baby hypothesis. The film has English subtitles and has been screened in both Belgium and the Netherlands to different medical and legal professionals as well as to parents. The plan, with assistance from Dr. Janna Koppe, emeritus Professor of Neonatology, is to show the documentary to paediatricians in Dutch teaching hospitals, with a view to preparing them for shaken-baby cases to be published.


Le Dr Jannes Koetsier fait des recherches sur la vaccination depuis plusieurs années. Récemment, il a écrit des rapports d’opinion au sujet de plus de trente parents accusés d’avoir secoué leur bébé et dans environ 25% de ces cas, il a démontré que la vaccination de ces bébés était la cause la plus probable de ce “syndrome du bébé secoué”. Il existe bien sûr d’autres causes, peu recherchées par les pédiatres, qui peuvent créer ces traumatismes: accident à la naissance, infection virale, maladie héréditaire rare, thrombocytopénie, maladie hépatique, problèmes hormonaux ou acidose tubulaire. A la suite de ce travail pour les parents, ils ont créé un site ou figure tout ce qu’il publié sur le sujet.

En 2016, il a terminé un documentaire sur les hypothèses des causes du syndrome du bébé secoué. Ce film en hollandais a des sous-titres en anglais. Il a été montré en Belgique et en Hollande à des groupes de professionnels médicaux et juristes ainsi qu’à des parents. Grâce à la collaboration du Dr. Janna Koppe, Professeur émérite de néonatologie, le projet est de montrer ce documentaire aux pédiatres des hôpitaux universitaires hollandais pour les rendre attentifs lorsqu’un cas de ce genre est relaté dans la presse.

Who we are

The EFVV (European Forum for Vaccine Vigilance) is an alliance of member-organisations and individual members from 25 European countries.  Our member-organisations consist of consumer groups and pro-choice groups whose members in turn include medical professionals and scientists. Their combined memberships exceed 100,000. We call on all Europeans to stand together in a demand for a united vaccination policy based on freedom of choice and informed consent.  We believe that mandatory vaccination is not only a serious risk but a violation of human rights and dignity.  We therefore demand transparency and caution as well as recognition and concern for the many vaccine-injured in Europe and beyond.
