Hib (Haemophilus influenzae) Virus and the Vaccine

The Virus and It’s Effect

“Haemophilus influenzae (including Hib) is a bacterium that can cause a severe infection, occurring mostly in infants and children younger than five years of age. In spite of its name, Haemophilus influenzae does not cause influenza (the “flu”). There are six identifiable types of Haemophilus influenzae bacteria (a through f) and other non-identifiable types (called nontypeable). The one that most people are familiar with is Haemophilus influenzae type b, or Hib.” – CDC, 2014

According to the CDC, “the most common types of invasive Haemophilus influenzae disease are:

  • Bacteremia (blood infection)
  • Meningitis (infection of the covering of the brain and spinal cord)
  • Epiglotittis (an inflammation of the windpipe; can cause breathing trouble)
  • Cellulitis (skin infection)
  • Infectious arthritis”

There are 5 types of Hib Vaccine

The five vaccines are: ActHIB; Hiberix; PedvaxHIB; Comvax, Pentacel and Menhibrix.

Adverse Reactions from the Hib Vaccine

“VAERS received 29,747 reports after Hib vaccines; 5179 (17%) were serious, including 896 reports of deaths. Median age was 6 months (range 0-1022 months). Sudden infant death syndrome was the stated cause of death in 384 (51%) of 749 death reports with autopsy/death certificate records.” – The Journal of Pediatrics, 2015

HPV (Human Papillomavirus) & the Vaccines

The Virus and It’s Effect

“There are more than 100 types of HPV, of which at least 13 are cancer-causing (also known as high risk type). Two HPV types (16 and 18) cause 70% of cervical cancers and precancerous cervical lesions.” – World Health Organization, 2013

Annual U.S. Mortality Rate for HPV

About 4,000 per year – CDC, 2014

“The American Cancer Society (ACS) estimates that more than 12,000 new cases of cervical cancer were diagnosed in 2011 and that more than 4,000 patients with cervical cancer died.” Journal of the Advanced Pracititioner in Oncology via PubMed, 2014


A Hoax

Dr. Russell Blaylock HPV“The evidence is that alone, that is all by itself, HPV does not cause cervical cancer. There is no absolute evidence of causation….It has never been proven that the HPV vaccine prevents cervical cancer. That has never been demonstrated.” – Dr. Russell Blaylock, retired neurosurgeon stated on Natural News, 2013

“In sum, our data indicate that newly formed carcinoma-specific karyotypes generate and maintain carcinomas, independent of latent viral sequences or mutations of tumor suppressor genes. Based on our findings it is expected that a vaccine against human papilloma viruses will have no effect on the occurrence of cervical carcinomas.” – Molecular Cytogenetics, 2013

Merck promoted school-entry mandate legislation by serving as an information resource, lobbying legislators, drafting legislation, mobilizing female legislators and physician organizations, conducting consumer marketing campaigns, and filling gaps in access to the vaccine. Legislators relied heavily on Merck for scientific information.” – American Journal of Public Health, 2012

Ok, so cervical cancer is real, but HPV is not the sole cause of it, and the vaccines have not been demonstrated to prevent the HPV that’s allegedly the sole cause of cervical cancer. Well, what then, along with HPV, does facilitate cervical cancer? Risk Factors.

Risk Factors of Cervical Cancer

The Pharmaceutical Industry’s big push is to have prepubescent females (and males) vaccinated against HPV to prevent cervical cancer. However, these children are not even at the stage in their life that cervical cancer is a high threat. People who demonstrate the following risk factors according to National Cancer Institute, 2014 are those at exceedingly higher risk of cervical cancer:

  • Giving birth to many children.
  • Having many sexual partners.
  • Having first sexual intercourse at a young age.
  • Smoking cigarettes.
  • Using oral contraceptives (“the Pill”).

HPV Vaccines

“Two HPV vaccines available (Gardasil® and Cervarix®) which protect against the types of HPV infection that cause most cervical cancers (HPV types 16 and 18). Both vaccines should be given as a three-shot series.” – CDC, 2014

These two vaccines allegedly prevent HPV, which may cause cancer when you have increased risk factors. When performing the risk vs. reward assessment of  whether to take a vaccine, the positive outcomes must far out weigh any potential down side. So, what dangers and adverse effects do the HPV vaccines themselves pose?

Adverse Events Following HPV Vaccination

Baring in mind always, the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) is completely voluntary and the majority of cases that occur will never go reported. The below side effects have become horrific nightmares to hundreds of families in America and England.

Documented Adverse Reactions

  • Diabetic Ketoacidosis (potentially life-threatening complications from diabetes)
  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) (motor neurone disease)
  • Lou Gehrig’s Disease
  • Meningoencephaliti (inflammation of the brain)
  • Pulmonary Embolisms (blockage of the main artery of the lung)
  • Blood clots to the lung
  • Cardiac-related deaths
  • Sepsis related to influenza B (chemicals released triggering inflammatory responses)
  • Seizure disorders
  • Life-disabling Autoimmune conditions
  • Paralysis
  • Bell’s Palsy (paralyzes the face)
  • Hemiparesis (paralyzes or severely weakens half the body)
  • Hypoesthesia (loses sense of touch)
  • Guillain-Barré syndrome (paralyzes the legs)
  • Convulsions
  • Epileptic fit

VAERS ( Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System) received 12,424 reports of AEFIs  (Adverse Events Following Immunization) following qHPV distribution, a rate of 53.9 reports per 100,000 doses distributed. A total of 772 reports (6.2% of all reports) described serious AEFIs, including 32 reports of death.” – Journal of the American Medical Association, 2009

Of the 32 reported deaths “14 of the deceased had only received the HPV vaccine, while others had received multiple vaccines. The average age of the girls who died was 18, and causes of death varied widely — including two cases of diabetic ketoacidosis, one case related to prescription drug abuse, one case of juvenile amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or Lou Gehrig’s disease, one case of meningoencephalitis, three pulmonary embolisms or blood clots to the lung, six cardiac-related deaths, one case of sepsis related to influenza B and two because of seizure disorders. Four deaths were unexplained.” – The New York Times, 2009

“We documented here the evidence of the potential of the HPV vaccine to trigger a life-disabling autoimmune condition. The increasing number of similar reports of post HPV vaccine-linked autoimmunity and the uncertainty of long-term clinical benefits of HPV vaccination are a matter of public health that warrants further rigorous inquiry.” – American Journal of Reproductive Immunology via PubMed, 2013

Gardasil Good Morning AmericaThree doctors on ABC’s Good Morning America, 2009 admit they don’t know enough about the vaccine and whether or not it is even safe. Further, one of the doctor’s confesses that he will not be giving it to his 11 year old daughter.

Gardasil CNN

CNN, 2009 reported that “Two months after getting the shot, Taqueria says she got a rash on her face and arms, leaving these scars. She had swelling all over; pain in her joints and poor circulation in her fingertips. Her doctor told us she now suffers from an auto-immune disease, and says it is possible that Gardasil triggered her illness. Though she made it clear, the cause could not be proven.”

CBS GardasilThere are countless numbers of personal testimonials of young women being permanently damaged by Gardasil all over Youtube. Additionally, at the time of this CBS, 2009 report, there had been 5,021 Emergency Room visits because of Gardasil, and if the damage isn’t bad enough, the manufacturers and the CDC are now beginning to recommend this vaccine for boys.

“WAUKESHA, Wisc. — A 12-year-old Wisconsin girl died just hours after she went to the doctor for a sore throat, and while there, received the HPV vaccine…That day, Rebecca Prohaska took her daughter to the doctor for a sore throat. While they were there, at about 10:30 or 11:00 a.m., Meredith got her first HPV vaccine.” – Fox News 4 Kansas City, 2014

In England, Ceravix vaccine had similar adverse reactions. Of the 1,340 reports, among them, “There were several cases of paralysis. One had Bell’s palsy, which paralyzes the face; one had hemiparesis, which paralyzes or severely weakens half the body; two experienced hypoesthesia, in which the sufferer loses much of her sense of touch, and one had Guillain-Barré syndrome, which paralyses the legs” and “four girls had convulsions, one had a seizure and one had an epileptic fit.” – The UK Daily Mail, 2009

“Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency had 8,228 adverse reaction reports in 10 years – only estimated 10 per cent of real tally” – The UK Daily Mail, 2015

Hepatitis A

The Virus and It’s Effect

“Hepatitis A is an acute liver disease caused by the hepatitis A virus (HAV) lasting from a few weeks to several months. It does not lead to chronic infection.” – CDC, 2014

Transmission: Ingestion of fecal matter, even in microscopic amounts, from close person-to-person contact or ingestion of contaminated food or drinks.” – CDC, 2014

Annual U.S. Mortality Rate for Hepatitis A

Less than 9 deaths per year

“In 2012, a total of 1,562 cases of acute hepatitis A were reported nationwide to CDC” and “0.6% indicated the patient died from hepatitis A” or 9 people died. – CDC, 2014

Rotavirus & the Vaccines

The Virus and It’s Effect

“Rotavirus is a contagious virus that can cause gastroenteritis (inflammation of the stomach and intestines). Symptoms include severe watery diarrhea, often with vomiting, fever, and abdominal pain.” – CDC, 2014

Annual U.S. Mortality Rate for Rotavirus

Between 20-60 deaths per year – CDC, 2014

Rotavirus Pre-Vaccine Deaths


The Dangers of the Vaccines

The Current Rotavirus Vaccines, Rotarix & RotaTeq

Below are the two vaccines that currently administered in the U.S:

RotaTeq® (RV5) is given in 3 doses at ages 2 months, 4 months, and 6 months.
Rotarix® (RV1) is given in 2 doses at ages 2 months and 4 months.

Rotarix (RV1)

“From 2008 through April 2012, VAERS received 58 reports of confirmed intussusception following Rotarix.” – CDC, 2014

Intussusception is a process in which a segment of intestine invaginates into the adjoining intestinal lumen, causing bowel obstruction. With early diagnosis, appropriate fluid resuscitation, and therapy, the mortality rate from intussusception in children is less than 1%. If left untreated, however, this condition is uniformly fatal in 2-5 days.” – Medscape, 2014

RotaTeq (RV5)

Increased the Side Effects vs Placebo – FDA, 2014
  • Diarrhea (24.1% vaccine vs 21.3% placebo)
  • Vomiting (15.2% vaccine vs 13.6% placebo)
  • Ear infection (14.5% vaccine vs 13.0% placebo)
  • Runny nose and sore throat (6.9% vaccine vs 5.8% placebo)
  • Wheezing and coughing (1.1% vaccine vs 0.7% placebo)

Also, RV5 vaccine has been shown to have a shedding effect of the virus within just a couple days of the infants vaccination. Viral shedding refers to the “process that occurs when a virus is present in bodily fluids or open wounds and can thereby be transmitted to another person, as with herpetic lesions,” according to The Free Dictionary, 2015.

“Vaccine-type rotavirus was detected in all 50 antigen-positive specimens and 8 of 8 antigen-negative specimens. Nine (75%) of 12 EIA-positive and 1 EIA-negative samples tested culture-positive for vaccine-type rotavirus. Fecal shedding of rotavirus vaccine virus after the first dose of RV5 occurred over a wide range of post-vaccination days not previously studied.” – Vaccine, 2011

“We document here the occurrence of vaccine-derived rotavirus (RotaTeq [Merck and Co, Whitehouse Station, NJ]) transmission from a vaccinated infant to an older, unvaccinated sibling, resulting in symptomatic rotavirus gastroenteritis that required emergency department care.” – Journal of Pediatrics, 2009

“The analyses included 507,874 first doses and 1,277,556 total doses of RV5…The number of excess cases of intussusception per 100,000 recipients of the first dose of RV5 was significantly elevated, both in the primary analysis (attributable risk, 1.1 [95% confidence interval, 0.3 to 2.7] for the 7-day risk window and 1.5 [95% CI, 0.2 to 3.2] for the 21-day risk window) and in the secondary analysis (attributable risk, 1.2 [95% CI, 0.2 to 3.2] for the 21-day risk window).” – The New England Journal of Medicine, 2014

The Former Rotavirus Vaccine

RotaShield (RRV-TV)

“On July 16, 1999, CDC recommended that health-care providers suspend use of the licensed rhesus-human rotavirus reassortant-tetravalent vaccine (RRV-TV) (RotaShield®, Wyeth Laboratories, Inc.” due to increased risk of Intussusception).” – CDC, 2004

“Assuming full implementation of a national program of vaccination with RRV-TV, we estimated that 1 case of intussusception attributable to the vaccine would occur for every 4670 to 9474 infants vaccinated.” – New England Journal of Medicine, 2001

Pneumococcal Disease & the Vaccines

The Virus

“Pneumococcus is the most common cause of bloodstream infections, pneumonia, meningitis, and middle ear infections in young children.” – CDC, 2013

Pneumococcus can cause types of infections:

Pneumonia – an infection of the lungs that is a common bacterial complication of influenza and measles. The case-fatality rate is 5%–7% and may be much higher among elderly persons. Complications of pneumococcal pneumonia include empyema (i.e., infection of the pleural space), pericarditis (inflammation of the sac surrounding the heart), and endobronchial obstruction, with atelectasis and lung abscess formation.
Ear infections
Sinus infections
Bacteremia – blood stream infection
Meningitis – the inflammation of the protective membranes covering the brain and spinal cord

  • Bacterial Meningitis – can be contagious but most is not, and some bacteria can spread through the exchange (e.g., by kissing) of respiratory and throat secretions (e.g., saliva or mucus)
  • Viral Meningitis – the most common type and is less severe than bacterial meningitis, and most people usually get better on their own. Can be spread by coming in close contact with someone who is infected
  • Parasitic Meningitis – a very rare form where the parasite enters the body through the nose and is caused by the microscopic ameba that causes a brain infection that is usually fatal
  • Fungal Meningitis – rare and usually the result of spread of a fungus through blood to the spinal cord. Those with HIV infection or cancer, are at higher risk
  • Non–infectious Meningitis – not spread from person to person; instead, it’s caused by cancers, systemic lupus erythematosus (lupus), certain drugs, head injury, and brain surgery

Meningitis Outbreaks the Last DecadeSource: USA Today, 2014


It’s Effect

“The major types of pneumococcal disease are pneumonia (lung infection), bacteremia (blood infection), and meningitis (infection of the covering of the brain and spinal cord). Less severe clinical diseases include ear and sinus infections.” – CDC, 2013

“In the United States, about 90% of invasive pneumococcal disease cases are in adults.” – CDC, 2013

Annual U.S. Mortality Rate for Pneumococcus

Between 45,000 – 65,000 deaths per year

Pneumococcal pneumonia kills between 45,000 – 63,000 people in the U.S. or about 1 out of 20 people who get it – CDC, 2013 & CDC, 2014

Pneumococcal meningitis kills nearly 1800 people in the U.S. or about 3 people in 10 who get it. – CDC, 2013 & CDC, 2014

Pneumococcal bacteremia kills nearly 300 people in the U.S or about 1 person in 5 who get it. – CDC, 2013 & CDC, 2014


 The Vaccines, PCV13 & PSV23

PCV13 (Pneumococcal Conjugate Vaccine)

“There are more than 90 types of pneumococcal bacteria. PCV13 protects against 13 of them. These 13 strains cause most severe infections in children and about half of infections in adults.” – CDC, 2014

“PCV13 is routinely given to children at 2, 4, 6, and 12–15 months of age.” – CDC, 2014

One of the many admitted side effects is that “about 1 out of 3 had a mild fever, and about 1 in 20 had a higher fever (over 102.2°F).” – CDC, 2014

PPSV23 (Pneumococcal Polysaccharide)

“Pneumococcal disease is caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae bacteria. Pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine (PPSV) protects against 23 types of pneumococcal bacteria, including those most likely to cause serious disease..” – CDC, 2014

Recommended by CDC for everyone over 65 and those under 65 who have severe cancers and disease


Meningococcal Vaccine Side Effects

The committee concluded the evidence convincingly supports 14 specific vaccine–adverse event relationships. In all but one of these relationships, the conclusion was based on strong mechanistic evidence with the epidemiologic evidence rated as either limited confidence or insufficient.” Of these “14 specific vaccine-adverse event relationships,” 1 of them are from the Meningococcal vaccine.  The symptom that have been confirmed to be convincingly supportive of causal is “Anaphylaxis.” – Committee to Review Adverse Effects of Vaccines; Institute of Medicine, TABLE S-2 – Summary of Causality Conclusions, 2011


Outbreaks

US Princeton Meningitis Outbreak FedsPrinceton University Outbreak

In 2013, Princeton University suffered a serogroup B meningococcal outbreak that was “so serious in fact, the CDC is taking the unprecedented move of importing emergency doses of Bexsero, a meningitis vaccine not yet approved for use in this country” according ABC News’ Good Morning America. As stated in the story, this sets an extraordinary precedent to inoculate people during an emergency before our FDA has had a chance to approve its safety.

Nationwide Contaminated Steroid Vaccine Outbreak

“As many as 13,000 people received steroid shots suspected in a national meningitis outbreak, health officials said Monday… Officials don’t know how many of the shots may have been contaminated with meningitis-causing fungus.” – USA Today, 2012

The 17,000 contaminated steroid vials shipped lead to an outbreak totaled 751 reported cases including 64 deaths. – CDC, 2013ABC News Meningitisis

ABC News does early reporting of the manufacturer of the vaccine, New England Compound Center, and health concerns of the outbreak.

In response to these two outbreaks, the FDA and Pfizer saw a tremendous opportunity so they “accelerated the approval of Trumenba, completing the approval process in “well under six months,” the typical time frame for completing even a priority review of a new drug.” – The Washington Post, 2014

Hepatitis B Virus and the Vaccine

Hepatitis B – The Virus and It’s Effect

“Hepatitis B is a liver disease…It can range in severity from a mild illness lasting a few weeks to a serious, lifelong illness. Hepatitis B is usually spread when blood, semen, or another body fluid from a person infected with the Hepatitis B virus enters the body of someone who is not infected.” – CDC, 2013

Annual U.S. Mortality Rate for Hepatitis B

2,000– 4,000 deaths per year

“U.S. mortality data for 2000–2003 indicated that HBV infection was the underlying cause of an estimated 2,000– 4,000 deaths annually… approximately 25% of persons infected with HBV as infants or young children.” – CDC, 2008


Hepatitis B Vaccine

Since 1991, a series of three hepatitis B shots has been part of the standard federally-recommended childhood vaccination schedule, with the first dose given within the first 12 hours after birth, the second dose given between one and two months of age, and the third dose given between six and 18 months of age.


Side Effects

Again, weighing the pro’s and con’s of vaccination, let’s look at the documented adverse reactions that have been associated with this vaccine. Keep in mind, each of these studies and observations are separate from one another, but they all tell a similar story.

 “A total of 82 articles were identified which included 58 case series or case reports, 15 review articles, 4 cross sectional studies, 3 prospective cohort studies, one retrospective cohort study and a case control study. After reviewing the literature, we observed that complications seen after Hepatitis B vaccination are sudden infant death syndrome, multiple sclerosis, chronic fatigue syndrome, idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, vasculititis optic neuritis, anaphylaxis, systemic lupus erytymatosus, lichen planus and neuro-muscular disorder.” – Annals of Medical and Health Sciences Research, 2014

Adverse Reactions:

  • Ear Infection
  • Pharyngitis (sore throat)
  • Chronic Arthritis
  • Increased Risk of Type-1 Diabetes
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • Rheumatic Diseases
  • Nerve Inflammation
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Central Nervous System Inflammatory Demyelination
  • SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome)

“Other studies found positive associations between hepatitis B vaccination and ear infection, pharyngitis, and chronic arthritis; as well as receipt of early intervention/ special education services (EIS); in probability samples of U.S.” – Annals of Epidemiology, 2009

“Findings suggest that U.S. male neonates vaccinated with hepatitis B vaccine had a 3-fold greater risk of ASD; risk was greatest for non-white boys.” – Huffington Post, 2009

“Findings suggest that U.S. male neonates vaccinated with the hepatitis B vaccine prior to 1999 (from vaccination record) had a threefold higher risk for parental report of autism diagnosis compared to boys not vaccinated as neonates during that same time period. Nonwhite boys bore a greater risk.” – Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health, 2010

“This study examined whether acquisition of neonatal reflexes in newborn rhesus macaques was influenced by receipt of a single neonatal dose of hepatitis B vaccine containing the preservative thimerosal (Th)…This primate model provides a possible means of assessing adverse neurodevelopmental outcomes from neonatal Th-containing hepatitis B vaccine exposure, particularly in infants of lower GA (Gestational age) or BW (birth weight).” – Journal of Toxicological Environmental Health, 2010

“Hepatitis B vaccine might be followed by various rheumatic conditions and might trigger the onset of underlying inflammatory or autoimmune rheumatic diseases.” – Oxford Journals, 1999

“An Italian study presented here at the annual meeting of the American Diabetes Association suggests that children who get the hepatitis B vaccine are at greater risk for developing type 1 disease than those who have never been vaccinated.” – WebMD, 2015

“Nerve Inflammation. There have been reports of nerve inflammation after vaccinations for hepatitis B, and some questions about multiple sclerosis.” – NY Times, 2012

“However, the Engerix B vaccine (GlaxoSmithKline’s vaccine) appears to increase this risk, particularly for confirmed multiple sclerosis, in the longer term.” Journal of American Academy of Neurology, 2008

“The Hepatitis B vaccine series were 50% more likely to develop “central nervous system inflammatory demyelination.” – Huffington Post, 2009

“…patients diagnosed with either fibromyalgia (FM) or chronic fatigue (CFS) following hepatitis B vaccination (HBVv) and furthermore to apply the recently suggested criteria of autoimmune (auto-inflammatory) syndromes induced by adjuvants (ASIA), in the aim of identifying common characteristics that may suggest an association between fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue and HBV vaccination…All patients fulfilled the ASIA criteria. This study suggests that in some cases CFS and FM can be temporally related to immunization, as part of ASIA syndrome.” – Immunologic Research, 2014

The committee concluded the evidence convincingly supports 14 specific vaccine–adverse event relationships. In all but one of these relationships, the conclusion was based on strong mechanistic evidence with the epidemiologic evidence rated as either limited confidence or insufficient.” Of these “14 specific vaccine-adverse event relationships,” 1 of them are from the hepatitis B vaccine.  The symptom that have been confirmed to be convincingly supportive of causal is “Anaphylaxis.Committee to Review Adverse Effects of Vaccines; Institute of Medicine, TABLE S-2 – Summary of Causality Conclusions, 2011

10 Month Old Girl Dies a Couple Hours after Hep B VaccineTen month old, Haylee Schmidt, dies just hours after receiveing Hepatatitis B vaccine. They hired an independent pathologist, Dr. Steven Rostad, and he concluded that the autospy was subpar and that the little girl did not die from SIDS; instead, Haylee showed “features of a generalized allergic response most likely from the vaccination that was given earlier in the day.” – Fox News Detroit, 2014

The Chickenpox (Varicella) Virus and It’s Vaccine

Chickenpox (Varicella) – The Virus and It’s Effect

“Shingles and chickenpox were once considered separate disorders. Researchers now know that they are both caused by a single virus of the herpes family, known as varicella-zoster virus (VZV). The word herpes is derived from the Greek word “herpein,” which means “to creep,” a reference to a characteristic pattern of skin eruptions.” – The New York Times, 2008

“If the virus becomes active after being latent, it causes the disorder known as shingle. The virus in this later form is referred to as herpes zoster…Shingles itself can develop only from a reactivation of the varicella-zoster virus in a person who has previously had chickenpox.” – The New York Times, 2008

“About 500,000 cases of shingles occur each year in the U.S.” – The New York Times, 2008

Annual U.S. Mortality Rate for Varicella

Less than 20 deaths per year

“Since the early 1990s, the bug has gone from killing 105 a year to causing fewer than 20 annual deaths between 2003 and 2007.” – Reuters, 2011


The Varicella Vaccine

This vaccine has only recently been added to the CDC‘s pediatric recommended schedule since 1995. And already, they’re recommending two doses of it. Acquiring the chickenpox virus naturally gives you immunity for life; yet, the vaccine already requires two separate doses spaced a few years apart. Does it work?

“Before the vaccine, about 4 million people would get chickenpox each year in the United States. Also, about 10,600 people were hospitalized and 100 to 150 died each year as a result of chickenpox.” – CDC, 2011

“The varicella vaccine was licensed for use in the United States in 1995.” – CDC, 2008

“Varicella in vaccinated persons (i.e., breakthrough disease) is a varicella-like rash that occurs more than 42 days after vaccination…breakthrough varicella disease in vaccinated persons has been shown to be contagious.”– CDC, 2008

“Varicella vaccination is less effective than the natural immunity that existed in prevaccine communities. Universal varicella vaccination has not proven to be cost-effective as increased HZ (herpes zoster) morbidity has disproportionately offset cost savings associated with reductions in varicella disease.” – Vaccine, 2013

The CDC admits that vaccinated persons can still get a rash and still be contagious. And according to the above PubMed study, the chickenpox vaccine is less effective than natural immunity. So doing the risk/benefit analysis, getting vaccinated may prevent chickenpox but it might not. What about the documented possible adverse reactions to the vaccine?

Side Effects of the Vaccine

“Severe Side Effects. Only about 5% of adverse reactions are serious. These reactions include seizures, pneumonia, anaphylactic reaction, encephalitis, Stevens-Johnsons syndrome, neuropathy, herpes zoster, and blood abnormalities.” – The New York Times, 2008

“However, recent data indicate that combining varicella and MMR vaccinations into one shot doubles the risk for febrile (fever-related) seizures in children ages 12 – 24 months compared to giving separate MMR and varicella injections.” – The New York Times, 2008

The committee concluded the evidence convincingly supports 14 specific vaccine–adverse event relationships. In all but one of these relationships, the conclusion was based on strong mechanistic evidence with the epidemiologic evidence rated as either limited confidence or insufficient.” Of these “14 specific vaccine-adverse event relationships,” 5 of them are from the chicken pox vaccine, VZV Oka, a Merck strain vaccine.  The symptoms that have been confirmed to be convincingly supportive of causal are “Pneumonia, Meningitis,  Hepatitis, Anaphylaxis, or Encephalitis.” Committee to Review Adverse Effects of Vaccines; Institute of Medicine, TABLE S-2 – Summary of Causality Conclusions, 2011

And the documented side effects of the vaccine consist of seizures, pneumonia, brain inflammation and more? Nearly all adults have had the chickenpox naturally at some point in their youth. In fact, some parents host chickenpox parties giving their children the virus early in life, acquiring natural immunity thereafter so as to not risk the more serious effects the virus in adulthood. To vaccinate against this virus is highly unnecessary, dangerous, and it’s proving to not even be effective.

Additionally, there is health benefits from receiving the wild form of the chicken pox versus being innoculated with the virus in the form of reduction in allergies.

“WTVZV (Wild-type varicella zoster infection) up to 8 yr of age protects against atopic disorders, which is likely mediated by suppression of IgE (Immunoglobulin E levels) production and allergic sensitization, as well as altered leukocyte distributions.” – Pediatric Allergy and Immunology, 2012

Atopic DisordersOf, relating to, or caused by a hereditary predisposition to developing allergic reactions, such as hay fever, asthma, or urticaria, after exposure to specific antigens such as pollen, food, and insect venoms.


Outbreaks Occur in the Vaccinated Population

There are documented outbreaks where the vaccinated children are still getting the chickenpox. These cases are only recently coming to light since the first wave of children being vaccinated against this virus are entering grade school a decade later.

“Five months after 2 siblings were immunized with varicella vaccine, 1 developed zoster. Two weeks later the second sibling got a mild case of chicken pox. Virus isolated from the latter was found to be vaccine type. Thus, the vaccine strain was transmitted from the vaccinee with zoster to his sibling. Vaccinees who later develop zoster must be considered contagious. varicella-zoster, zoster, vaccine, transmission, rash, PstI.” – Journal of Pediatrics, 2000

“A chickenpox outbreak occurred in a school in which 97% of students without a prior history of chickenpox were vaccinated. Students vaccinated >5 years before the outbreak were at risk for breakthrough disease.” – Journal of Pediatrics, 2004

“Although disease was mostly mild, the outbreak lasted for approximately 2 months, suggesting that varicella in vaccinated persons was contagious and that 99% varicella vaccination coverage was not sufficient to prevent the outbreak.” – Journal of Pediatrics, 2006

“A 16-year-old varicella-seronegative resident at a chronic care facility received varicella vaccine; 15 days later he developed severe varicella. Subsequently, a 13-year-old resident and a 39-year-old health care worker developed mild varicella. We demonstrate that vaccine-strain virus was transmitted to both persons, and that transmission included at least 2 variant vaccine strains.” – Journal of Pediatrics, 2006

Rubella

Rubella – The Virus and It’s Effect

Rubella virus a.k.a. German Measles or the three-day measles “can be found in nose and throat secretions, such as saliva, sputum, or nasal mucus, of infected people.” – CDC, 2014

In young children, rubella is usually mild, with few noticeable symptoms. They may have a fever and a sore throat. Adults are more likely to have a headache, pink eye, and general discomfort 1 to 5 days before the rash appears. Adults also tend to have more complications, including sore, swollen joints and, less commonly, arthritis, especially in women.” – CDC, 2014

Annual U.S. Mortality Rate for Rubella

Less than 1 death per year

“During 2004–2012, 79 cases of rubella and six cases of CRS (congenital rubella syndrome) were reported in the United States… Of the three cases of CRS that occurred in 2012, All three mothers had been in Africa early in their pregnancies.” – CDC, 2014

Mumps Virus and the Vaccine

Mumps – The Virus and It’s Effect

“Mumps typically starts with a few days of fever, headache, muscle aches, tiredness, and loss of appetite, and is followed by swelling of salivary glands.” – CDC, 2014

“The annual average of mumps cases in the U.S. in the two decades preceding the 2006 outbreak was 265.” – Forbes, 2012

No mumps-related deaths were reported in the 2006 or the 2009–2010 U.S. outbreaks.” – CDC, 2014

U.S. Annual Mortality Rate for Mumps

Less than 1 death per year


Vaccine Effectiveness

The MMR is always touted as being ‘safe and effective.’ It’s ‘safety’ is well documented to be less than advertised, causing all sorts of adverse events from encephalitis to febrile seizures as stated on The Measles Virus & the Vaccine page. So there are built-in, inherent risks in taking the vaccine, so just how effective is it from preventing the disease? It turns out it is less than effective, ranging anywhere from 80% to 95% effective.

“The effectiveness of prior vaccination with 1 dose of vaccine ranged from 72.8% to 91% for the Jeryl Lynn strain, from 54.4% to 93% for the Urabe strain, and from 0% to 33% for the Rubini strain. Vaccine effectiveness after 2 doses of mumps vaccine was reported in 3 outbreaks and ranged from 91% to 94.6%.” – Clinical Infectious Diseases, 2008

According to Merck’s package insert for their MMR vaccine, the following has been causally associated with the mumps strain of the vaccine, “Cases of aseptic meningitis have been reported to VAERS following measles, mumps, and rubella vaccination. Although a causal relationship between the Urabe strain of mumps vaccine and aseptic meningitis has been shown, there is no evidence to link Jeryl LynnTM mumps vaccine to aseptic meningitis.” – Merck & Co., Inc., 2014

“The vaccine is about 85% effective, meaning there are some people who won’t be immune despite being vaccinated.” – USA Today, 2014Mumps Outbreak at OSU, Why Now

The local Ohio ABC News admits that the MMR only protects people from the Mumps 80% of the time.

 Merck overstated the effectiveness of its MMR vaccine for a decade probably causing large outbreaks of Mumps in 2006 and 2009. – Forbes, 2012

“Mumps outbreaks have also occurred among populations with high 2-dose coverage. For example, in 2006, a series of mumps outbreaks occurred in the United States, despite 2-dose vaccination coverage >95%, and in some investigations, >99% of patients had been vaccinated with 2 doses of vaccine.” – Clinical Infectious Diseases, 2008

Outbreaks Occur in the Vaccinated Population

The following outbreaks are all independent from each other, happening in different parts of the country and in different years, but they all had one thing in common, each of the cases occurred in highly vaccinated populations.

“So far, there have been 43 confirmed cases of the mumps since April. Officials at the Champaign-Urbana Public Health District say it started on the University of Illinois campus. Now, it’s spreading to others in the surrounding community. Many of those contracting the virus are vaccinated against it.” – NBC WAND-17 Illinois, 2015

“COLUMBIA, Mo. – The Columbia/Boone County Health Department says five suspected cases of mumps are now confirmed. The health department said all five students were vaccinated.” – ABC News – 17 Missouri, 2015

“From October 1988 to April 1989, a large mumps outbreak occurred in Douglas County, Kansas. Of the 269 cases, 208 (77.3%) occurred among primary and secondary school students, of whom 203 (97.6%) had documentation of mumps vaccination.” – Journal of Pediatrics, 1991

“Between October 3 and November 23, 1990, clinical mumps developed in 54 students (attack rate, 18%), 53 of whom had been vaccinatedVaccination failure may play an important role in contemporary mumps outbreaks.” – Archives of Pediatric & Adolescent Medicine, 1995

“It refers to a 2006 mumps outbreak in the Midwest, in which 6,500 cases were reported among a highly vaccinated population.” – Forbes, 2012

“A mumps epidemic is sweeping across Iowa in the nation’s biggest outbreak in at least 17 years, baffling health officials and worrying parents…Of the 245 patients this year, at least 66% had had the recommended two-shot vaccination, while 14% had received one dose, the Public Health Department said.”- USA Today, 2006

“The Orange County Health Department (OCHD), New York State Department of Health (NYS DOH), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention conducted a mumps investigation in an affected village with a highly vaccinated population…Of the 658 cases with known vaccination history, 83.6% had documentation of 2 doses of mumps containing vaccine.” – Human Vaccines & Immunotherapeutics, 2014

“Health officials have linked the outbreak to an 11-year-old boy at the camp…’He was completely vaccinated,’ Pirutinsky said. ‘So it was a surprise to us he came down with mumps.'” – CNN, 2010

In 2014, Ohio State University mumps outbreak consisted of 63 cases with “the majority of those infected had received at least one round of the vaccinations for measles, mumps and rubella.” Reuters, 2014

In 2014, a New Jersey college in Hoboken had 8 students who came down with the mumps. “All were fully vaccinated with two documented doses of mumps-containing vaccine.” – Fox NY, 2014

The Measles Virus and the Vaccine

Measles – The Virus and It’s Effect

“Measles is a highly contagious respiratory disease caused by the measles virus. The disease is also called rubeola. Measles causes fever, runny nose, cough and a rash all over the body. About one out of 10 children with measles also gets an ear infection, and up to one out of 20 gets pneumonia. For every 1,000 children who get measles, one or two will die.” – CDC, 2014

Annual U.S. Mortality Rate for Measles

Less than 1 death per year

You might be thinking to yourself, yeah, there is only one death per year because of the incredible work of the vaccine in reducing the incidence of contracting the measles. A logical thought until you understand the bigger picture of the history of the virus and the vaccine during the 20th century. “A killed measles virus (KMV) vaccine came into use in the United States in 1963. What you may not have heard, is that by 1963, the death rate from measles in the United States had already dropped by approximately 98%.” – International Medical Council on Vaccination, 2014

G11.6-US-Measles-1900-19871

“Today there are only about 60 cases a year reported in the United States, and most of these originate outside the country.” – CDC, 2014

So, since there are usually 60 cases a year for people of all ages who catch the virus, and only 2 out of every 1,000 people who get the measles will die from it, the odds that an infant will die from it in an average year are near 0. Below, is a chart showing the incidences for the last decade or so. Given the infinitesimally small chance of contracting the disease and especially dying from it, is there really a need to vaccinate against it?

Measles Outbreaks the Last Decade

Above is the bar graph of Measles incidences of which only 2 were fatal over the last decade in the U.S. – USA Today, 2014

Documented Dangers of MMR or MMRV Vaccine

Below are medical and scientific journal’s documented adverse events associated with the MMR or MMRV (measles-mumps-rubella-varicella) vaccines.

“All measles-containing vaccines are associated with several types of adverse events, including seizure, fever, and immune thrombocytopenia purpura (ITP).” –  American Academy of Pediatrics, 2014

Immune Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP) – a clinical syndrome in which a decreased number of circulating platelets (thrombocytopenia) manifests as a bleeding tendency, easy bruising (purpura), or extravasation of blood from capillaries into skin and mucous membranes (petechiae) – Medscape, 2015

“We found evidence that some vaccines are associated with serious AEs (Adverse Events); however, these events are extremely rare and must be weighed against the protective benefits that vaccines provide….Strength of evidence was high for measles/mumps/rubella (MMR) vaccine and febrile seizures; the varicella vaccine was associated with complications in immunodeficient individuals. ” –  American Academy of Pediatrics, 2014

“Reporting in the journal Nature Genetics, the team found that febrile seizures occurred in roughly one in every 1,000 children who were given the MMR vaccine.” – Yahoo News, 2014

According to the Journal of Pediatrics, “Among the children who never had measles infection, those who had been vaccinated were more likely to have nasal allergies, Rosenlund’s group observed.” – Reuters, 2009

“Among 12- to 23-month-olds who received their first dose of measles-containing vaccine, fever and seizure were elevated 7 to 10 days after vaccination. Vaccination with MMRV results in 1 additional febrile seizure for every 2300 doses given instead of separate MMR + varicella vaccines. Providers who recommend MMRV should communicate to parents that it increases the risk of fever and seizure over that already associated with measles-containing vaccines.” –  American Academy of Pediatrics, 2010

“A rogue strain of the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine caused deafness in children, the Government has admitted. Katie Stephen, 21, who lost the use of her left ear days after being inoculated, is the first known victim to prove her case to the Vaccine Damage Payments Unit.” The Times of London, 2012

The committee concluded the evidence convincingly supports 14 specific vaccine–adverse event relationships. In all but one of these relationships, the conclusion was based on strong mechanistic evidence with the epidemiologic evidence rated as either limited confidence or insufficient.” Of these “14 specific vaccine-adverse event relationships,” 3 of them are from the MMR.  The symptoms that have been confirmed to be convincingly supportive of causal are “Measles Inclusion Body Encephalitis, Anaphylaxis, or Febrile Seizures.” – Committee to Review Adverse Effects of Vaccines; Institute of Medicine, TABLE S-2 – Summary of Causality Conclusions, 2011

“This clustering suggests that a causal relationship between measles vaccine and encephalopathy may exist as a rare complication of measles immunization…A total of 48 children, ages 10 to 49 months, met the inclusion criteria after receiving measles vaccine, alone or in combination. Eight children died, and the remainder had mental regression and retardation, chronic seizures, motor and sensory deficits, and movement disorders.” – Pediatrics, 1998

“Children of mothers vaccinated against measles and, possibly, rubella have lower concentrations of maternal antibodies and lose protection by maternal antibodies at an earlier age than children of mothers in communities that oppose vaccination. This increases the risk of disease transmission in highly vaccinated populations.” – The Journal of Infectious Diseases Study, 2012

The following are documented Adverse Reactions that Merck & Co. Inc. admit are associated with their MMR vaccine in their vaccine package insert:

ADVERSE REACTIONS

The following adverse reactions are listed in decreasing order of severity, without regard to causality, within each body system category and have been reported during clinical trials, with use of the marketed vaccine, or with use of monovalent or bivalent vaccine containing measles, mumps, or rubella:
Body as a Whole
Panniculitis; atypical measles; fever; syncope; headache; dizziness; malaise; irritability.
Cardiovascular System
Vasculitis.
Digestive System
Pancreatitis; diarrhea; vomiting; parotitis; nausea.
Endocrine System
Diabetes mellitus.
Hemic and Lymphatic System
Thrombocytopenia (see WARNINGS, Thrombocytopenia); purpura; regional lymphadenopathy;
leukocytosis.
Immune System
Anaphylaxis and anaphylactoid reactions have been reported as well as related phenomena such as angioneurotic edema (including peripheral or facial edema) and bronchial spasm in individuals with or without an allergic history.
Musculoskeletal System
Arthritis; arthralgia; myalgia.
Nervous System
Encephalitis; encephalopathy; measles inclusion body encephalitis (MIBE) (see CONTRAINDICATIONS); subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE); Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS); acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM); transverse myelitis; febrile convulsions; afebrile convulsions or seizures; ataxia; polyneuritis; polyneuropathy; ocular palsies; paresthesia.

Outbreaks Occur in the Vaccinated Population

The MMR is so ineffective in eliminating the Measles that the U.S. adopted a 2nd dose strategy in 1989. Despite the 2nd dose, there are still large percentage measles outbreaks in the vaccinated populations.

“The apparent paradox is that as measles immunization rates rise to high levels in a population, measles becomes a disease of immunized persons. Because of the failure rate of the vaccine and the unique transmissibility of the measles virus the currently available measles vaccine, used in a single-dose strategy, is unlikely to completely eliminate measles.” – Journal of American Medical Association, 1994

Children of mothers vaccinated against measles and, possibly, rubella have lower concentrations of maternal antibodies and lose protection by maternal antibodies at an earlier age than children of mothers in communities that oppose vaccination. This increases the risk of disease transmission in highly vaccinated populations.” – The Journal of Infectious Diseases, 2013

In fact, the measles virus has been proven to shed a few weeks after vaccination. This will allow others to contract the disease from a host that was recently vaccinated against the measles.

“In some cases, measles virus RNA was detected as early as 1 day or as late as 14 days after vaccination. Measles virus RNA was also detected in the urine samples from all four of the young adults between 1 and 13 days after vaccination. This assay will enable continued studies of the shedding and transmission of measles virus and, it is hoped, will provide a rapid means to identify measles infection, especially in mild or asymptomatic cases.” – Journal of Clinical Microbiology, 1995

Excretion of small amounts of the live attenuated rubella virus from the nose or throat has occurred in the majority of susceptible individuals 7 to 28 days after vaccination.” – Merck & Co., Inc., 2014

The vaccine prevention strategy only works if it does in fact prevent those vaccinated from acquiring the disease. However, much like Whooping Cough and Chickenpox, the Measles has numerous outbreaks in populations documented to be majorly vaccinated. Each of the below incidences are different and stand alone cases; yet, they all have that one thing in common, vaccinated people got the disease too.

“A woman who became the first person to die of the measles in the U.S. in 12 years had been vaccinated against the disease, it has been revealed.” – UK Daily Mail, 2015

“We report here the case of a child presenting with fever 8 days after vaccination with a measles-mumps-rubella vaccine. Measles virus was isolated in a throat swab taken 4 days after fever onset. This virus was then further genetically characterised as a vaccine-type virus.” – Vaccine, 2002

“The Baltimore Health Department is investigating a possible measles case in a 12-month-old Baltimore resident…The symptoms started after the child received the vaccine.” – WBAL-TV 11, 2015

“That’s why a fully vaccinated 22-year-old theater employee in New York City who developed the measles in 2011 was released without hospitalization or quarantine. But like Typhoid Mary, this patient turned out to be unwittingly contagious. Ultimately, she transmitted the measles to four other people, according to a recent report in Clinical Infectious Diseases that tracked symptoms in the 88 people with whom “Measles Mary” interacted while she was sick.” – American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), 2014

“An outbreak of measles occurred in a high school with a documented vaccination level of 98 per cent.” This outbreak occurred in Waltham, MA between March and April of 1984. – American Journal of Public Health, 1987

“From December 9, 1983, to January 13, 1984, 21 cases of measles occurred in Sangamon County, Illinois… The outbreak involved 16 high school students, all of whom had histories of measles vaccination after 15 months of age documented in their school health records.” – CDC, 1984

“During the 1989–1991 U.S. measles outbreaks 20–40% of the individuals affected had been previously immunized with one to two doses of vaccine.” – Vaccine, 2014

“From 1985 to 1988 there were a median of 47 outbreaks among school-age populations and only 8 outbreaks among preschool populations; 42% of the affected children had been appropriately vaccinated for measles.” – American Society for Microbiology, 1995

“An outbreak of measles occurred among adolescents in Corpus Christi, Texas, in the spring of 1985, even though vaccination requirements for school attendance had been thoroughly enforced…Fourteen of 74 seronegative students, all of whom had been vaccinated, contracted measles.” – The New England Journal of Medicine, 1987

“In early 1988 an outbreak of 84 measles cases occurred at a college in Colorado in which over 98 percent of students had documentation of adequate measles immunity (physician diagnosed measles, receipt of live measles vaccine on or after the first birthday, or serologic evidence of immunity) due to an immunization requirement in effect since 1986.” – American Journal of Public Health, 1991

“A measles outbreak occurred among a highly vaccinated population in Alaska during 1998…Of 33 confirmed case patients identified, 31 had been vaccinated with 1 dose of MCV (Measles Containing Vaccine), 1 had received 2 doses, and vaccination status was unknown in 1 case.” – The Journal of Infectious Diseases, 2004

“In an October 2011 outbreak in Canada, over 50% of the 98 individuals had received two doses of measles vaccine.” – Vaccine, 2014

The Polio Virus and the Vaccine

Polio – The Virus and It’s Effect

“Polio spreads from person to person invading the brain and spinal cord and causing paralysis (inability to move). ” – CDC, 2014

“Most people who get infected with poliovirus (about 72 out of 100) will not have any visible symptoms.” – CDC, 2014

“Most people with polio have no symptoms; minor symptoms such as limb pain, fatigue and nausea affect about 4% to 8% of patients, according to the CDC. Fewer than 1% of cases lead to patients becoming permanently paralyzed, usually in the legs.” – CNN, 2012

“Paralysis is the most severe symptom associated with polio because it can lead to permanent disability and death. Between 2 and 10 out of 100 people who have paralysis from poliovirus infection die because the virus affects the muscles that help them breathe.” – CDC, 2014

 Annual U.S. Mortality Rate for Polio

Less than 1 death per year – CDC, 2014


Polio Diagnosis Declined Due to Change in Criteria, not the Vaccine’s Efficacy

“The fact that dubious tactics were used to fabricate efficacy rates was corroborated by Dr. Bernard Greenberg, chairman of the Committee on Evaluation and Standards of the American Public Health Association during the 1950s. His expert testimony was used as evidence during Congressional hearings in 1962. He credited the “decline” of polio cases not to the vaccine, but rather to a change in the way doctors were required to report cases: “Prior to 1954 any physician who reported paralytic poliomyelitis was doing his patient a service by way of subsidizing the cost of hospitalization… two examinations at least 24 hours apart was all that was required… In 1955 the criteria were changed… residual paralysis was determined 10 to 20 days after onset of illness and again 50 to 70 days after onset… This change in definition meant that in 1955 we started reporting a new disease… Furthermore, diagnostic procedures have continued to be refined.” – Neil Z Miller – The Polio Vaccine: A Critical Assessment of its Arcane History, Efficacy, and Long-term Health-related Consequences, 2004


Dr. Maurice Hilleman’s Admissions to Polio Vaccine Causing Cancer

As the developer of Merck’s vaccine program, Dr. Maurice Hilleman developed more than three dozen vaccines, which is more than any other scientist in history. In this archived interview excerpt recorded by WGBH, Boston’s Public Broadcasting Station, you will hear his own admission that, “vaccines have to be considered the bargain basement technology for the 20th Century.” This is quite a statement from someone who should be the proudest and utmost progenitor of vaccines’ safety and effectiveness.Dr. Maurice Hilleman

When he spoke about bringing the monkeys over from Africa, which they used to manufacture the polio vaccine, he had this to say, “I brought African greens in. I didn’t know we were importing AIDS virus at the time.” And following the two reporters’ outburst of laughter, Dr. Hilleman replied, “This is the real story.

A little later in the interview, Dr. Hilleman stated, “Yellow fever vaccine had leukemia virus in it. This was in the day of very crude science.” He continues, by telling of his conversation with Dr. Albert Sabin, the creator of the oral Polio vaccine, over the effect it was having on their test population, the Russians. He said, “I have a feeling in my bones that this virus is different. I don’t know why I am telling you this, but I’ve been around biology a long time. But I just think this virus may have some long term effects. And he just said what? And I said, “Cancer.


Polio Vaccine Caused Cancer

A cancer-causing monkey virus grown in their kidneys – SV-40 – was administered to millions between 1955-1961. In fact, “our analysis indicates increased rates of ependymomas (37%), osteogenic sarcomas (26%), other bone tumors (34%) and mesothelioma (90%) among those in the exposed as compared to the unexposed birth cohort.” – AntiCancer Research, 1999

Presence of simian virus 40 (SV-40) DNA sequence in human lymphomas might be a pathogenesis of non-Hodgkins lymphomas. “SV40 is significantly associated with some types of non-Hodgkin lymphoma. These results add lymphomas to the types of human cancers associated with SV40.” – The Lancet, 2002

“These results establish that SV40 is associated significantly with brain tumors, bone cancers, malignant mesothelioma, and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.” – American Journal of Medicine, 2003

“We conclude that SV40 is significantly associated with some types of NHL (non-Hodgkins Lymphomas) and that lymphomas should be added to the types of human cancers associated with SV40.” – Leuk Lymphoma, 2003


People Receiving Polio Vaccine Increased Likelihood of Contracting Polio

“In 1995, the New England Journal of Medicine published a study showing that children who received a single injection within one month after receiving a polio vaccine were 8 times more likely to contract polio than children who received no injections.” – Neil Z Miller – The Polio Vaccine: A Critical Assessment of its Arcane History, Efficacy, and Long-term Health-related Consequences, 2004

 “The live attenuated strains used in the oral poliovirus (OPV) … strains replicate in the human gut and are excreted for several weeks after immunization…This may, in rare cases, cause vaccine-associated paralytic poliomyelitis (VAPP) in vaccinees or result in transmissible and neurovirulent circulating vaccine-derived poliovirus (cVDPV) strains.” – Vaccine, 2009

Polio Cases in States

So, let’s take a look at the data. Did the cases of polio decrease after the vaccine? Well, in fact, no. The chart to the left shows 5 states (MA, CT, NH, RI, VT) that were sampled show an increase in polio after the vaccine ranging from (266% – 642%). – Neil Z Miller – The Polio Vaccine: A Critical Assessment of its Arcane History, Efficacy, and Long-term Health-related Consequences, 2004 via US Government Statistics


The Polio Vaccine Created New Cases of Polio

In fact, according to CDC figures, every case of polio in U.S. since 1979 was caused by the polio vaccine or from foreigners bringing wild polio into the U.S.CDC – Morbidity and Mortality Report, 1999

The wild polio virus brought about the development of polio vaccines, which spawned mutations of the polio virus, resulting in new “vaccine-derived” polio viruses. – The Lancet, 2001; CDC –Poliomyelitis Prevention in the United States, 1990Polio Wild Virus

On September 24, 1976, The Washington Post, 2006 reported Dr. Jonas Salk’s assertion that the live oral virus vaccine of Dr. Albert Sabin had been the cause of reported polio cases in the US since 1961.

Vaccine-derived polioviruses (VDPVs), strains of poliovirus mutated from the oral polio vaccine, pose a challenge to global polio eradication. Immunodeficiency-related vaccine-derived polioviruses (iVDPVs) are a type of VDPV which may serve as sources of poliovirus reintroduction after the eradication of wild-type poliovirus.” – Vaccine, 2015

“The oral vaccines are inexpensive, costing about 12 cents per dose, and simple to administer. But they are not foolproof. In one out of every few million recipients, they cause polio paralysis. Immune-impaired individuals can become long-term shedders of the virus.” – Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy, 2008


The Polio Vaccine Can Shed

“Maximum viral shedding occurs in the first 1–2 weeks after vaccination, particularly after the first dose. Vaccine viruses may spread from the recipient to contacts. Persons coming in contact with fecal material of a vaccinated person may be exposed and infected with vaccine virus…Infected persons without symptoms shed virus in the stool and are able to transmit the virus to others.” – CDC, 2010

Fecal shedding of virulent revertant polioviruses was examined in isolates from infants previously immunized with > or = 1 dose of orally administered live attenuated polio vaccine (OPV) alone, enhanced-potency inactivated polio vaccine (EIPV) alone, or a combination of both.” – The Journal of Infectious Diseases, 1993

“A Staten Island man stricken with polio after changing his daughter’s diaper 30 years ago won a multimillion dollar judgment from the maker of the oral vaccine that passed through her stool.” He “was awarded $22.5 million. The jury determined that the Orimune vaccine his daughter, Diana, received was “unreasonably dangerous” and that drugmaker Lederle Laboratories was “100% liable” for his injuries.” – NY Daily News, 2009

Whooping Cough (Pertussis) and The Vaccine (DTaP/DTP)

Pertussis – The Virus and It’s Effect

“Pertussis is known for uncontrollable, violent coughing which often makes it hard to breathe. After fits of many coughs, someone with pertussis often needs to take deep breaths which result in a “whooping” sound.” – CDC, 2014

“Pertussis most commonly affects infants and young children and can be fatal, especially in babies less than 1 year of age.” – CDC, 2014

Annual U.S. Mortality Rate for Whooping Cough

Between 10-20 deaths per year

“Now we see about 10,000–40,000 cases reported each year and unfortunately about 10–20 deaths.” – CDC, 2014

 Pertusis Outbreaks the Last DecadeAbove is the trend line of Whooping Cough cases and deaths for over the last decade in the U.S. – USA Today, 2014

Two Types of Vaccine: Whole-cell (DTP) and Acellualar (DTaP)

According to the FDA, 2013, “there are two types of pertussis vaccines, whole-cell and acellular. Whole-cell pertussis vaccines contain a whole-cell preparation, which means they contain killed, but complete, B. pertussis bacteria. The acellular pertussis vaccine is more purified and uses only selected portions of the pertussis bacteria to stimulate an immune response in an individual.” The whole-cell whooping cough vaccine, DTP, is no longer in production in the U.S. because children were always getting sick from the vaccine within 3 days of it’s injection. In fact, doctors had to give an antipyretic, an agent that reduces fever, because it was so bad. So, today the DTaP is the vaccine that is being administered, but it is definitely full of short-comings as well. In recent scientific studies, DTaP is not providing protection from acquiring the disease nor lowering the spread of the disease to others.

Acellular pertussis vaccines licensed by FDA “may not prevent the bacteria that causes whooping cough in those vaccinated or its spread to other people.” – FDA.gov, 2013

“The observation that aP, which induces an immune response mismatched to that induced by natural infection, fails to prevent colonization or transmission provides a plausible explanation for the resurgence of pertussis.” – Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 2014

“Whole-cell vaccination was able to prevent transmission, but an acellular vaccine that effectively controls disease failed to control shedding and transmission. Our results highlight discrepancies between whole-cell and acellular vaccination that could contribute to the increased incidence of B. pertussis infection since the transition to the use of acellular vaccination.” – The Journal of Infectious Diseases, 2014

People Vaccinated Can Be Carriers of Pertussis

“We tested 46 fully vaccinated children in two day-care centers in Israel who were exposed to a fatal case of pertussis infection. Only two of five children who tested positive for Bordetella pertussis met the World Health Organization’s case definition for pertussis. Vaccinated children may be asymptomatic reservoirs for infection.” – CDC, 2000

“The research suggests that while the vaccine may keep people from getting sick, it doesn’t prevent them from spreading whooping cough — also known as pertussis — to others.” – NBC News, 2013

“But that might not be the whole story, suggests a new study published in BMC Medicine by Santa Fe Institute Omidyar Fellows Ben Althouse and Sam Scarpino. Their research points to a different, but related, source of the outbreak — vaccinated people who are infectious but who do not display the symptoms of whooping cough, suggesting that the number of people transmitting without symptoms may be many times greater than those transmitting with symptoms.” – Science Daily, 2015

Vaccine “Wears off”

 According to the CDC’s recommended pediatric vaccine schedule, children under 6 need to receive 5 doses of DTaP. So, how effective is the vaccine? Fully vaccinated children having had 5 doses of the vaccine by age 6 “could still be vulnerable by age 10” according to a study in The New England Journal of Medicine in 2012 – USA Today, 2013Whooping Cough

Dr. Marc Siegel Associate Professor of Medicine at NYU admits on Fox News the vaccine wears off. And he encourages that people get the vaccine even though the mother in the video tells a very compelling story of how the DTaP vaccine caused hospitalization and autism in her son.


Vaccinated People Get Whooping Cough

In each of the below cases spread throughout the country, the majority of those who came down with whooping cough had been up to date on their vaccinations according to the mainstream reports and scientific studies. So, does the vaccine work? Is it worth taking to begin with?

The Whooping Cough Cases

  • In San Diego, California “so far this year, 1,855 positive cases have been recorded, with more than 80 percent of the people up to date on their whooping cough shots.” – KPBS News, local San Diego news, 2014
  • 522 cases in Vermont, “a majority were vaccinated children,” 90% were vaccinated.USAToday, 2012
  • In California 2010, of the 132 patients with whooping cough under 18, 81% were fully up to date on their recommended vaccinations.Reuters, 2012
    • “…Records for 132 Kaiser Permanente patients… the bulk of the cases were in fully vaccinated children between eight and 12 years old.” – Scientific American, 2013whooping cough in MA
  • 15 High Schoolers in Cape Cod, Massachusetts have come down with whooping cough and “in this case, a school official tells WBZ that all the students had been immunized.” – CBS News, Boston, 2014
  • “This report describes a statewide outbreak of pertussis in Vermont (1995 population: 584,771) in 1996 in a highly vaccinated population, affecting primarily school-aged children and adults, and underscores the need to include pertussis in the differential diagnosis of cough illness in persons of all ages.” – CDC, 1997
  • “PARK CITY, Utah — A whooping cough outbreak is causing concern in Summit County as 19 children have been diagnosed, and it’s the first time in years Park City schools have seen a case of pertussis.

Health Officials Admissions

These individual outbreaks cases happened despite high levels of vaccination. Perhaps, the vaccinations themselves help facilitate whooping cough. Health officials try shrug off this glaring correlation (possible causation), but they have to make some admissions.

“While some parents around the country have taken a stand against childhood vaccines, the outbreak is not being driven by unvaccinated children, according to the CDC. Most of the illnesses are in vaccinated youngsters, officials said.” – CBS News, 2012

“Vaccination helped clear Bordetella pertussis but resulted in an approximately 40x fold increase in B. para-pertussis… Further, we show that aP vaccination impedes host immunity against B. para-pertussis” – The Royal Society, 2010

“There were 48,000 cases reported last year despite high rates of vaccinations…this resurgence suggests a need for research into the causes” says Anthony S. Fauci, M.D., director of National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.FDA, 2013

Other DTP/DTaP Dangers

Many of the dangers of these vaccines have been discussed on the Diphtheria and Tetanus pages. So, as to not double up, here are other documented adverse events from taking these vaccines, which we now know, doesn’t even work despite requiring 5 doses before age 6.

As far as the efficacy of DTaP Vaccine in Infants, “the studies have not demonstrated a direct correlation between antibody responses and protection against pertussis disease.” – CDC – Pertussis Vaccination: Use of Acellular Pertussis Vaccines Among Infants and Young Children, 1997 pg. 4

“Hypotonic-Hyporesponsive Episode (HHE). HHE is an uncommon response to the pertussis component and occurs within 48 hours of the injection in children under 2. The child usually starts out feverish and irritable and then becomes pale, limp, and unresponsive. Breathing is shallow, and the child’s skin may turn bluish.” – NY Times, 2012

“Neurologic Effects in Pertussis Component. Of concern have been a few reports of permanent neurologic abnormalities that have occurred after children have been vaccinated. Such reports include attention deficit disorder, learning disorders, autism, brain damage (encephalopathy), and even death.” – NY Times, 2012

Possible Adverse Reactions – Sanofi Pasteur Inc (Their Own Admissions)

Idiopathic thrombocytopenic pupura, SIDS, anaphylactic reaction, cellulitis, autism, convulsion/grand mal convulsion, encephalopathy, hypotonia, neuropathy, somnolence and apnea, peripheral mononeauropathy – a single nerve that affects sensation, movement, gland or, or organ function – FDA.gov, 2005

Tetanus and It’s Effect

 Tetanus

“The bacteria are usually found in soil, dust and manure and enter the body through breaks in the skin – usually cuts or puncture wounds caused by contaminated objects.” – CDC, 2013

“Today, tetanus is uncommon in the United States, with an average of 29 reported cases per year from 1996 through 2009.” – CDC, 2013

Annual U.S. Mortality Rate for Tetanus

Less than 4 deaths per year

“233 tetanus cases were reported during 2001–2008; among the 197 cases with known outcomes, the case-fatality rate was 13.2%” or 4 deaths per year – CDC, 2011

“Doctors can diagnose tetanus by examining the patient and looking for certain signs and symptoms. There are no hospital lab tests that can confirm tetanus.” – CDC, 2013

Adverse Effects of DTP

“DTP or tetanus vaccination appears to increase the risk of allergies and related respiratory symptoms in children and adolescents…The odds of having a history of asthma was twice as great among vaccinated subjects than among unvaccinated subjects (adjusted odds ratio, 2.00; 95% confidence interval, 0.59 to 6.74).” – Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, 2000

The committee concluded the evidence convincingly supports 14 specific vaccine–adverse event relationships. In all but one of these relationships, the conclusion was based on strong mechanistic evidence with the epidemiologic evidence rated as either limited confidence or insufficient.” Of these “14 specific vaccine-adverse event relationships,” 1 of them are from the tetanus vaccine.  The symptom that have been confirmed to be convincingly supportive of causal are “Anaphylaxis.” – Committee to Review Adverse Effects of Vaccines; Institute of Medicine, TABLE S-2 – Summary of Causality Conclusions, 2011

Diphtheria and The Vaccine

Diphtheria– The Virus and It’s Effect

“Diphtheria causes a thick covering in the back of the throat. It can lead to difficulty breathing, heart failure, paralysis, and even death.” – CDC, 2013

“Diphtheria is spread (transmitted) from person to person, usually through respiratory droplets, like coughing or sneezing.” – CDC, 2013

Annual U.S. Reported Cases for Diphtheria

“…only 6 cases were reported in the United States between 2000 and 2003.” – NY Times, 2012

“Between 2004 and 2008, no cases of diphtheria were recorded in the U.S.” – CDC, 2014

Annual U.S. Mortality Rate for Diphtheria

Less than 1 death per year – CDC, 2008

“The overall case-fatality rate for diphtheria is 5%–10%.” – CDC, 2014


DTP & DTaP Vaccines (Diphtheria, Tetanus and Pertussis)

“Focusing on very narrow time intervals following immunization, we found the SIDS mortality rate in the period zero to three days following DTP to be 7.3 times that in the period beginning 30 days after immunization (95 per cent confidence interval, 1.7 to 31).” – American Journal of Public Health, 1987

“Of these 53 (SIDS), 27 had received a DTP immunization within 28 days of death. Six SIDS deaths occurred within 24 hours and 17 occurred within 1 week of DTP immunization…These data suggest a temporal association between DTP immunization, physician visits without DTP immunization and SIDS.” Pediatric Infectious Disease, 1983

The Flu Virus and the Vaccine

Influenza – The Virus and It’s Effect

Three Types

“There are three types of influenza viruses: A, B and C. Human influenza A and B viruses cause seasonal epidemics of disease almost every winter in the United States.” – CDC, 2014

“Influenza B and C viruses mainly affect humans, whereas influenza A viruses infect a range of mammalian and avian species.” – WHO, 2014

“Over 200 viruses cause influenza and ILI” (Influenza-Like Illness) – The Cochrane Collaboration, 2013

“So far, 16 HA and 9 NA subtypes of type A influenza virus have been identified and more than one hundred of the possible 144 HA-NA combinations have been found.” – PLOS One, (Public Library of Science, a peer-reviewed weekly medical journal), 2010

“Influenza A (H1N1), A (H3N2), and one or two influenza B viruses (depending on the vaccine) are included in each year’s influenza vaccine.” – CDC, 2014


U.S. Annual Mortality Rate for Flu

Between 500 – 1500 die in U.S. 2010-2012 – National Vital Statistics System, 2014

3,000 – 49,000 die in U.S. 1976–2007 – CDC, 2013

As you can see from the above statistics, there is a vast discrepancy in the range of influenza deaths in America.

According to the British Medical Journal, 2005, “US data on influenza deaths are a mess. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) acknowledges a difference between flu death and flu associated death yet uses the terms interchangeably. Additionally, there are significant statistical incompatibilities between official estimates and national vital statistics data. Compounding these problems is a marketing of fear—a CDC communications strategy in which medical experts “predict dire outcomes” during flu seasons.”

“The considerable similarity in mortality seen in pandemic and nonpandemic influenza seasons challenges common beliefs about the severity of pandemic influenza. The historical decline in influenza-classed mortality rates suggests that public health and ecological factors may play a role in influenza mortality risk. Nevertheless, the actual number of influenza-attributable deaths remains in doubt.” – The Journal of the American Medical Association, 2008

Examples of Flu Vitals Calculated With and Without Pneumonia

The CDC gives an absurdly high range of flu related deaths by including Pneumonia deaths and Flu deaths together. This is a scare tactic driving people to get vaccinated each year with the latest strain of flu. Below are figures taken from the Nationals Vital Statistics System, which meticulously calculates all the death certificates in America. These figures encompass all Americans from all age groups.

According to the National Vital Statistics System, pg. 39, 2013, the annual flu deaths in 2010 census data was just 500.

Flu 500 Deaths Pt. 2

Likewise, based on 2011 data the National Vital Statistics System, pg. 23, found influenza to be the cause of death for just 1,532.

Flu 2010 Deaths

And 2012’s Influenza causalities? National Vital Statistics System put that death toll figure at 1,106.

2012 Flu Deaths

These figures fall well short of the CDC’s 3,000 – 49,000 range. So, to demonstrate this, take a look at 2004, a year that falls between 1976 – 2007. National Vital Statistics System figure where flu and pneumonia figures are put together. The number is 59,664.

The Vaccine Not Attributable to Decrease in U.S. Flu Mortality Rates

Flu DeathsThe flu vaccine was not distributed to the American public until the 1950’s, and taking a look at the Influenza mortality rates on the chart to the right. By the ’50’s, the mortality rate had leveled off. So, the flu vaccines were not the reason for the decrease in influenza related mortality in America.  The British Medical Journal, 2013

“By the 1950s, vaccine makers were able to prepare and routinely release vaccines which could be used in the prevention or control of future pandemics. ” – Flu.gov, 2014


Flu Vaccine Increases Chance of Flu and Non-influenza Respiratory Virus Infections

Many people find anecdotally that within their circle of friends those who came down with the flu had received the flu vaccine for that season. How could this be? The flu vaccine is championed as the best defense one can take against the flu. Yet, there are documented observational studies showing that the flu vaccine may not only provide little protection against the flu, but may actually enhance your chances of contracting the virus.

“When VE (Vaccine Effectiveness) against all influenza viruses was combined, the overall VE estimate was 19% (95% CI: 7%– 29%). In practical terms, this means the flu vaccine reduced a person’s risk of having to seek medical care at a doctor’s office for flu illness by 19%.” – CDC, 2015

People who received the H1N1 (trivalent inactivated influenza vaccine) in ’08-’09 doubled their chance of getting the flu after taking the flu vaccine according to four observational studies from Canada. – PLOS Medicine, 2010. The studies stated,

In contrast, estimates from the sentinel and three other observational studies, involving a total of 1,226 laboratory-confirmed pH1N1 cases and 1,505 controls, indicated that prior receipt of 2008–09 TIV was associated with increased risk of medically attended pH1N1 illness during the spring–summer 2009, with estimated risk or odds ratios ranging from 1.4 to 2.5.

“On February 10, 2014, the USS Ardent, a U.S. Navy minesweeper, was moored in San Diego, California, while conducting training. Over the course of 3 days, 25 of 102 crew members sought medical care because of influenza-like illness (H3N2)…At the time of the outbreak, 99% of the crew had received influenza vaccine.” – CDC, 2014

“Vaccines given to fight this year’s flu appear to be about 62 percent effective overall” and “Of people who got the flu, 32 percent were vaccinated” according to the CDC in 2013. – NBC News, 2013

Only 55% effective against influenza A strains; the more severe cases, and only 70% effective against influenza B, which is usually less serious.

“We randomized 115 children to trivalent inactivated influenza vaccine (TIV) or placebo. Over the following 9 months, TIV recipients had increased risk of virologically-confirmed non-influenza infections (relative risk: 4.40; 95% confidence interval: 1.31-14.8). Being protected against influenza, TIV recipients may lack temporary non-specific immunity that protected against other respiratory viruses.” – Oxford Journals – Clinical Infectious Diseases, 2012

Repeated Yearly Flu Vaccinations Weaken Immunity Against Flu

In fact, receiving the flu vaccine a couple years in a row or more has been proven to provide no protection against the flu, and instead, linked to increasing the risk of other infections.

“Current-season VE (vaccine effectiveness) against H3N2 was significantly higher (65%; 95% CI, 36%–80%) among nonvaccinees (ie, those vaccinated in the current season but not during the prior 5 years) compared with frequent vaccinees (24%; 95% CI, 3%–41%; P = .01).” – Clinical Infactious Diseases, 2014

Flu shot 2 years in a row provided no protection against flu for 328 Michigan households. – CIDRAP.umn.gov, 2013

“Antibody titers to influenza HA and NA antigens may persist over multiple seasons; however, antigenic drift of circulating viruses may still necessitate annual vaccination. Vaccine seroresponse may be impaired with repeated vaccination.” – The Journal of Infectious Diseases, 2014

“Previous vaccination against seasonal influenza increased the risk of infection with the antigenically distinct influenza A/H1N1 pandemic virus in children and the risk of medically attended illness caused by this virus in adults.” – Journal of Virology, 2011

“… Pigs vaccinated against one strain of influenza were worse off if subsequently infected by a related strain of the virus.” – MedicalExpress.com, 2013 via study at Science Translational Medicine, 2013


Other Risks of Receiving Flu Vaccine

Ok, so the vaccine may not be effective at preventing the flu, but what’s the harm in giving it a shot? (See what I did there?) Turns out, there are tremendous adverse reactions that have been documented to correlate following vaccination from the oblivious pain and swelling at the injection site to far more irreparable harm, including death.

Non-influenza Respiratory Virus Infections

“We randomized 115 children to trivalent inactivated influenza vaccine (TIV) or placebo. Over the following 9 months, TIV recipients had increased risk of virologically-confirmed non-influenza infections.” – Clinical Infectious Diseases, 2012

Increased Risk of Cardiovascular Events

“Together with an inflammatory reaction, influenza A vaccine induced platelet activation and sympathovagal imbalance towards adrenergic predominance. Significant correlations were found between CRP (C-reactive protein) levels and HRV (heart rate variability) parameters, suggesting a pathophysiological link between inflammation and cardiac autonomic regulation. The vaccine-related platelet activation and cardiac autonomic dysfunction may transiently increase the risk of cardiovascular events.” –   The Association for the Publication of the Journal of Internal Medicine, 2011Dr. Mark Geier, MD and PhD

Guillain-Barre Syndrome

In the video to the right, Dr. Mark Geier, MD and PhD in genetics worked for a decade at the National Institute of Health says the following on the flu vaccine, “First, let’s start with the indisputable facts: the seasonal flu vaccine causes Guillain-Barre Syndrome… If you go to an emergency room with sudden onset of GBS symptoms, the first question the doctors will ask you is: ‘Did you recently get the flu shot?'”

“Researchers discovered that 77 people developed GBS up to 91 days after receiving the “swine flu” vaccine, amounting to 1.6 extra cases of GBS (Guillain-Barre syndrome) per 1 million people vaccinated.”  – CBS News, 2013

Narcolepsy

“In 2010, 54 children under age 17 were diagnosed with narcolepsy (5.3/100 000; 17-fold increase)…We consider it likely that Pandemrix vaccination contributed, perhaps together with other environmental factors, to this increase in genetically susceptible children.”PLOS One, 2012

journal.pone.0033723.g001

“For those under the age of 21, the risk of contracting narcolepsy was 3x higher for those who were vaccinated with Pandemrix, where as those aged between 21 and 30 had double the risk.” – The Local, Sweden’s News in English, 2013

“She falls asleep on average 40 times a day”…Lucy Tonge “discovered that her sleeping disorder was very likely to have been triggered by the swine flu vaccine, which she had received in 2009 a couple of months before her symptoms first emerged.” – The Guardian, 2015

Alzheimer’s

“According to Dr. Hugh Fudenberg, a leading immunogeneticist, those who consistently get the flu vaccine increase their risk of Alzheimer’s disease by 10 fold. He believes this is due to the toxic combination of aluminum and mercury in the vaccine.” – Examiner.com, 2012

Anaphylaxis

The committee concluded the evidence convincingly supports 14 specific vaccine–adverse event relationships. In all but one of these relationships, the conclusion was based on strong mechanistic evidence with the epidemiologic evidence rated as either limited confidence or insufficient.” Of these “14 specific vaccine-adverse event relationships,” 1 of them are from the influezna vaccine.  The symptoms that have been confirmed to be convincingly supportive of causal is “Anaphylaxis.Committee to Review Adverse Effects of Vaccines; Institute of Medicine, TABLE S-2 – Summary of Causality Conclusions, 2011

Febrile Seizures

“Up to one in 100 children given the jab, made in Australia by CSL and marketed in the UK by Pfizer, suffered febrile convulsions in the following hours and days.” – London Telegraph, 2010

CSL’s Fluvax vaccine was associated with an elevated rate of febrile seizures and febrile reactions within the first 24 hours after vaccination among children aged 6 months to <5 years…febrile seizures was up to 9 per 1,000 doses (up to 1 in every 110 doses). – FDA, 2011

Mary Sue Paralyzed Flu Shot

On Fox News’ program Fox & Friends, they speak to the mother of Mary Sue, a 9 year old girl, who became paralyzed 3 days after taking the flu shot and is now confined to a wheel chair.

Serious Adverse Event

Dystonia

Desiree Jennings had a serious reaction to the annual flu shot resulting in a medical condition called Dystonia. Dystonia is a neurological movement disorder, in which sustained muscle contractions cause twisting and repetitive movements or abnormal postures. – Fox News DC, 2009

Fox newsAutism

Dr. Kent Holtorf, an Infectious Disease Expert won’t give his kids the swine flu vaccination, and he speaks on the fact that vaccine is more dangerous than the flu itself because of all the adjuvants and it’s rush to market. Dr. Holtorf goes on to stay that the thimerosal has been linked to autism in kids with mitochondrial dysfunction. The vaccine has been proven to be a neurotoxin with 25,000 times the level of mercury acceptable if it was in foods or water. – Fox News, 2009


Children and the Flu

Health Officials Admit Vaccine Ineffectiveness

There are numerous documented reports finding children that receive the flu vaccine were provided no additional protection from the flu. Yet, the CDC and most likely your chosen pediatrician continue to not only offer you the vaccine each, but in many cases, strongly push it on you. They ought to read the following studies if they haven’t. If they have read these studies, they ought to refer you to them as well.

“For kids under age 2, the licensed vaccines are not significantly more efficacious than placebo,” according to Scientific American via Cochrane Collaboration, 2012

“Influenza vaccines are efficacious in children older than two years but little evidence is available for children under two…it was surprising to find only one study of inactivated vaccine in children under two years.” – PubMed – National Center for Biotechnology Information, 2006

“In 2 seasons with suboptimal antigenic match between vaccines and circulating strains, we could not demonstrate VE (vaccine effectiveness) in preventing influenza-related inpatient/ED (emergency department) or outpatient visits in children younger than 5 years. Further study is needed during years with good vaccine match.” – Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine, 2008

“They found that children who had received the flu vaccine had three times the risk of hospitalization, as compared to children who had not received the vaccine. In asthmatic children…” – ScienceDaily, 2009

“TIV (trivalent seasonal influenza vaccine) did not provide any protection against hospitalization in pediatric subjects, especially children with asthma. On the contrary, we found a threefold increased risk of hospitalization in subjects who did get the TIV vaccine.” – Allergy and Asthma Proceedings, 2012

Influenza Viral Shedding in Children

Viral shedding refers to the expulsion and release of virus progeny following successful reproduction during a host-cell infection. Once replication has been completed and the host cell is exhausted of all resources in making viral progeny, the viruses may begin to leave the cell by several methods.

“TIV (trivalent seasonal influenza vaccine) was not observed to ameliorate (make better) clinical symptoms or viral shedding among vaccine failures compared with infected placebo recipients.” – The Pediatric Infection Disease Journal, 2014

“Among subjects aged 5-8 years, 9-17 years, and 18-49 years, 44%, 27%, and 17% of subjects, respectively, shed vaccine virus after vaccination, and the mean number of positive samples per subject was 2.2, 1.8, and 1.5, respectively. Shedding occurred on days 1-11 postvaccination” for the Live attenuated influenza vaccine (LAIV) – Vaccine, 2008

Most children 6-59 months of age vaccinated with Ann Arbor strain LAIV shed ≥ 1 vaccine virus within 11 days of vaccination.” – Vaccine, 2011

Ann Arbor strain LAIV – FluMist was originally developed by Hunein “John” Maassab, Professor of Epidemiology at the University of Michigan School of Public Health in Ann Arbor, Michigan

“During an epidemic of influenza B, 43 ambulatory children were prospectively followed to determine the quantitative shedding patterns of influenza B viral infection…For the first three days of illness, greater than or equal to 93% of the children shed virus, and 74% shed on day 4.” – The Journal of Infectious Disease, 1979

Influenza-Associated Pediatric Deaths

Averaging the last 3 complete flu seasons, we find that on average there are 105 flu related deaths for persons aged less than 18 years.

Children Get Sick Because They Go the Doctor’s Office

Well-child visits linked to more than 700,000 subsequent flu-like illnesses. – ScienceDaily, 2014


Flu Vaccine & Elderly

Another segment of the population that is strongly urged to get a flu vaccine other than children is the elderly. But just how successful is the vaccine in preventing illness and death in this population?

“Evidence for protection in adults aged 65 years or older is lacking.” – The Lancet, 2011

“Over the last 2 decades in US, while flu vaccination rates among the elderly have increased from 15 to 65%, there has been no decrease in hospital admissions or all-cause mortality,” said Dr. Dean T. Eurich. – Reuters, 2008

“…Those aged at least 70 years, the age group that accounts for 3/4 of all influenza deaths,” have revealed using “recent excess mortality studies unable to confirm a decline in influenza-related mortality since 1980, even as vaccination coverage increased from 15% to 65%.” – The Lancet, 2007

“1173 cases and 2346 controls were included in the study. After we adjusted for the presence and severity of comorbidities, as defined by chart review, influenza vaccination was not associated with a reduced risk of community-acquired pneumonia (odds ratio 0.92, 95% CI 0.77-1.10) during the influenza season.” – The Lancet, 2008


Pregnancy & the Flu Vaccine

For many decades since the advent of vaccination in our culture, it was understood not to vaccinate pregnant women because of many potential risk of adverse reactions that could happen to the developing fetus. Today, standard modern medicine has thrown casution to the wind, and each are pushing more vaccines on pregnant women. Only time will tell since it is only recently that pregnant women have begun receiving the flu vaccine. More study will show the irreparable damage and harm done, but for now, we know the following.

Trivalent influenza virus vaccination elicits a measurable inflammatory response among pregnant women.” – Vaccine, 2011

“Based on analysis of data from two different sources, the 2009-A-H1N1 inactivated-influenza vaccination program contributed to an estimated 1,588 miscarriages and stillbirths among women 17 to 45 years of age.” – NCOW (National Coalition of Organized Women) from VAERS database reports, 2006

“The 1.8-fold increase in female AEs (Adverse Events) reports to VAERS following administration of pandemic A-H1N1 vaccine relative to seasonal TIV in the 2009/2010 influenza season is too small of a Weber-like increased reporting effect to account for the more than 40-fold increase in fetal-loss reports. Thus, the concomitant administration of the seasonal influenza and pandemic A-H1N1 vaccines during 2009/2010 suggests a synergistic toxicity and a statistically significant higher rate of fetal loss reporting relative to the single-dose seasons.” –  Human & Experimental Toxicology, 2013


Overestimated, Hype

So, we now know that the vaccine is significantly ineffective, if it works at all, and we know it causes irreparable harm and damage in some of those who receive it. Certainly medical professionals and the mainstream media see this as well, correct? Well, despite their best efforts in toting the flu shot’s miraculous effect, it has been noted and documented to be over hyped and ineffective in medical literature and reports.

“The flu vaccine, which hasn’t worked well to protect Americans against influenza, isn’t helping in Europe, either. The same mutated version of flu is circulating in Britain and other European countries this winter, and it’s only protected about 3 percent of those vaccinated, British health officials estimate. That’s even worse than in the U.S., where federal health officials say the vaccine reduced disease risk by 23 percent.” – NBC News, 2015

We could not correlate increasing vaccination coverage after 1980 with declining mortality rates in any age group. Because fewer than 10% of all winter deaths were attributable to influenza in any season, we conclude that observational studies substantially overestimate vaccination benefit.” – The Journal of the American Medical Association, 2005

“Over 200 viruses cause influenza and ILI, producing the same symptoms (fever, headache, aches, pains, cough and runny noses). Without laboratory tests, doctors cannot distinguish between them as both last for days and rarely lead to death or serious illness. At best, vaccines may only be effective against influenza A and B, which represent about 10% of all circulating viruses.” – The Cochrane Collaboration, 2013

“Influenza vaccines can provide moderate protection against virologically confirmed influenza, but such protection is greatly reduced or absent in some seasons.” – The Lancet, 2011

Virologist and Manufacturers Guess Wrong Strain

In fact, most years the vaccine contains the wrong strain or the wrong mutation of the influenza virus that was administered to the public. Since the manufacturers have to work on the vaccine a year in advance in preparation for the next year’s flu vaccine to hit the market, they often guess the wrong strain.

“The U.S. health agency (CDC) issued an advisory to doctors noting that flu virus samples the agency took from Oct. 1 through Nov. 22, showed that just under half were a good match for the current influenza A (H3N2) component contained in flu shots for the 2014-2015 season, suggesting the virus has drifted.” – Fox News, 2014

“The results reveal a pattern that surprised a number of health care professionals we consulted. The vast majority of cases were negative for H1N1 as well as seasonal flu, despite the fact that many states were specifically testing patients deemed to be most likely to have H1N1 flu” ranging from 83% – 97% negative for H1N1. – CBS News, 2009

H1N1 flu


Public Health Officials Admit Hype

The type of deception that the modern medical system pushes into the mainstream reminds me of a few lines from John F Kennedy’s famous speech, “Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed.” Those in the industry that are put on TV or are quoted in the papers imploring us to get the flu vaccine also speak out of the other side of their mouth when it comes to speaking about it’s efficacy. Big pharma and the CDC admit that they have caused alarms and panic feeding an industry that results in numerous negative consequences to those that heed their advice. Fortunately, some truth does surface, and here are admissions to the hype.

“The CDC recommends anyone over six months old get a flu shot, and says the vaccine’s effectiveness wears off so those who got shots last year still need them this year.” – The Wall Street Journal, 2011

“…and vaccine-induced protection was greatest for individuals not vaccinated during the prior 5 years.” – Oxford University Press via the Infectious Diseases Society of America, 2014

“A CDC spokesman warned last spring that creating “alarms” and “dire outcomes” from the flu fueled the demand for flu shots last season.” – The Washington Times, 2004

WHO redefined the term “pandemic” on June 11th, 2009 right before the H1N1 flu outbreak in order raise alarms and sell vaccines. – Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg – Hearing on “The handling of the H1N1 pandemic: more transparency needed?”

And he admits that there will be problems with this vaccine for some people who will have adverse effects. Feel free to fast forward the youtube video 5:02 to hear it yourself. “I will tell you, my wife’s not getting immunized and neither is my kids because I got four of them and when I go home I’m not Dr. Oz; I’m Mr. Oz.” – Dr. Mehmet Oz, CNN, 2009

“…the live attenuated influenza vaccine (LAIV, or the “nasal spray vaccine”) and inactivated influenza vaccine (IIV or “the flu shot). During 2013-2014 there was no measurable effectiveness for LAIV against influenza A (H1N1) among children enrolled in the study.” – CDC, 2014

“The chief avian flu coordinator for the United Nations, Dave Nabarro, said last fall he was “almost certain” a bird flu pandemic would strike soon, and predicted up to 150 million deaths.” – NBC News, 2006

1976 Swine Flu Vaccine Failure

The Vaccine – killed 25 people and gave 500 people Guillian-Barre
The Swine Flu Virus – killed 1 person and only 200 even got the Flu

“The $137-million program began in early October, but within days reports emerged that the vaccine appeared to increase the risk for Guillain-Barre syndrome, a rare neurological condition that causes temporary paralysis but can be fatal…More than 500 people are thought to have developed Guillain-Barre syndrome after receiving the vaccine; 25 died.” – Los Angeles Times, 2009

“However, the pandemic, which some experts estimated at the time could infect 50 million to 60 million Americans, never unfolded. Only about 200 cases of swine flu and one death were ultimately reported in the U.S., the CDC said.”- Los Angeles Times, 2009H1N1 Flu Vaccine Experiment

Tune in to this ABC News interview with Dr. Anthony Fauci, Dir, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases around 4 minutes in where they discuss the false pandemic and the 25 avoidable deaths due to the ’76 swine flu vaccine.

Americans Realizing the Hype

flu-3There is a measurable backlash from all of the pushing of the flu vaccine on the public leading the majority of Americans, 64.8%, turning down the flu shot. – Washington Post, 2013

The majority (56%) of reason for those who have decided to go unvaccinated site either that they: “don’t need it,” “don’t believe in it,” or “think they will get sicker.”


Different Types of Vaccines & Viruses

“Germany has two types of H1N1 flu vaccines; one for “top government officials in Berlin will be injected with an alternative vaccine — one widely seen as safer” and one that “increase(s) the risk of side effects from the flu vaccine such as fevers and headaches” for everyone else. – Spiegel, 2009

“…offering one vaccine believed to have fewer side effects to civil servants, politicians and soldiers, and another, potentially riskier vaccine to everyone else.” – Time, 2009

“The United Nations (UN), through the UN Environment Programme, began negotiations to write the global, legally binding Minamata Convention…condoning a two-tier standard of vaccine safety: a predominantly no-thimerosal and reduced-thimerosal standard for developed nations and a predominantly thimerosal-containing one for developing nations.” – PubMed – National Center for Biotechnology Information, 2014

“Some influenza researchers are trying to make the H5N1 bird-flu virus more dangerous to humans by repeatedly infecting laboratory ferrets.” – Independent.co.uk , 2013

“A controversial scientist who carried out provocative research on making influenza viruses more infectious has completed his most dangerous experiment to date by deliberately creating a pandemic strain of flu that can evade the human immune system.” – The Independent, 2014

“The vaccine is made without growing the influenza virus in chicken eggs, which is the way that flu shots were made for more than four decades. Instead, Flucelvax is grown in kidney cells from dogs.” – Time, 2014
