    ABORTED BABY CELLS ARE IN YOUR VACCINES
    January 6, 2017
    https://vaccinesbytheoutliers.wordpr...this-stuff-up/
    (hyperlinks in the article)

    “You’ve probably heard that there are no aborted fetal ingredients in vaccines, right? Or maybe you heard that even though aborted babies are used for vaccine manufacturing, there’s not really anything in the vaccine by the time it gets to you or your child. Pseudoscience Quacktivists might call it ‘homeopathy,’ but I think we should call it what it is… a lie.

    Have you read the chicken pox vaccine package insert? You know, the one the doctor doesn’t go over with you when you take your kid in to get vaccinated. It says right on the label that there are aborted fetal ingredients in this vaccine.

    This product also contains residual components of MRC-5 cells including DNA and protein. – Varivax insert, pages 6-7. (In case you are wondering, MCR 5 is code for the 14 week-old baby boy who had the pleasure of supplying tissue from his lungs for your child’s vaccines.)

    Have you read the CDC’s vaccine ingredient list? Why would they list aborted baby parts as ingredients if they weren’t actually in vaccines? Just because there’s only a little baking soda in a cake doesn’t mean it’s not in there. In fact, a little baking soda can have quite the effect on a cake and the person eating it. If it’s on the label, it’s in the vaccine.

    At least 27 vaccines contain aborted baby cells, cellular debris, protein, and DNA from aborted babies including (but not limited to), Adenovirus, Polio, Dtap/Polio/HiB Combo, Hep A, Hep A/Hep B Combo, MMR, MMRV Pro Quad, Rabies, Varicella, Shingles vaccines, Ebola, HIV, tuberculosis, malaria, and influenza vaccines. There are hundreds of other vaccines in the pipeline and you can bet your life savings there are aborted baby ingredients in those too.

    You might have also heard that only two babies were used and it was a really long time ago, which justifies the continued use of shooting up live babies with dead babies. This just simply isn’t true…

    Aborted baby is supposedly some sort of magic that makes vaccines more effective (albeit safely untested and could contribute to conditions like autism and cancer). In fact, an article in the Associated Press just a few weeks ago said aborted baby parts are essential to vaccine science. Now why are aborted babies essential if new specimens are no longer used in the testing or manufacture of vaccines? I’ll tell you why, because they’re still being used and this wasn’t just a one-night stand.

    Sure, ultimately there may be only one cell line that makes it into each of these vaccines (let’s all pretend that makes a difference), but do you have any idea how many aborted baby specimens are used until the right one is perfected for each vaccine?

    … The PER C6 tumorigenic cell line is being used in the ebola, influenza, malaria, tuberculosis, and HIV vaccines and came from a healthy 18 week-old fetus aborted for social reasons and the HEK 293 cell line was derived from the kidneys of a baby now being used to develop new influenza vaccines.

    Did you know how many abortions were performed until the WI-38 cell line that ended up in many of the vaccines was selected? It is estimated that eighty elective abortions (recorded) were involved in the research and final production of the current rubella vaccine: 21 from the original WI-1 through WI-26 fetal cell lines that failed, plus WI-38 itself, plus 67 from the attempts to isolate the rubella virus.

    WI-1 through WI-25 cell strains were derived from the lung, skin, muscle, kidney, heart, thyroid, thymus, and liver of 21 separate elective (and some speculate illegal) abortions. WI-44 was derived from the lung of a three-month old surgically aborted fetus.

    WI-38 (RA 273) was derived from a 16-week-old female baby (20 cm long) who was aborted in Sweden because the parents felt they had too many children. The baby was packed on ice and sent to the United States (speculation suggests without consent) where it was dissected. If you do any research on Hayflick (the man who produced these lines) you would see it riddled with ethical issues from obtaining specimens illegally to court battles over profits.
    The WI-38 strain has helped to generate billions of dollars for companies that produce vaccines based on the cells, yet it seems that the parents of the fetus have earned nothing.
    There are numerous other cell lines created for vaccine production that we could talk about, like IMR-90 which came from a 16-week old aborted baby girl and can be purchased online for $431.00 or IMR-91 which came from a male aborted baby. You can scroll through the ATCC website and see cell line after cell line derived from aborted babies (and newborn baby foreskin if you’re curious about the business of circumcision) and find everything from 2.5 month gestation babies to older gestations of all ethnicities.
    Despite what you may have heard, these cell lines are not immortal. There is nothing on the face of this earth that is ‘immortal.’ … The cell lines used in our vaccines last a long time but they will eventually die out and when they do, they’ll have to be replaced. In fact, scientists are already trying to come up with the next best thing.
    In China, they recently developed the Walvax-2 cell line, which they plan to replace the MCR-5 cell line with. Walvax-2 was derived from the lung tissue of a 3-month old fetus and at least nine babies were used in the process before finding the successful cell line. This cell line is supposed to be better, stronger, and will replicate faster than the cell lines it’s designed to replace.” "

    Quote Vaccination Without Parental Knowledge Kills 14-year-old-girl

    June 2, 2019


    June 2, 2019 — Canada already has a law allowing children to be vaccinated without parental knowledge or consent, and that law has killed at least one young healthy girl. Her name was Annabel Morin. She was vaccinated in school and 16 days later had a severe adverse reaction but no one connected it to the vaccination. Her mother had no clue her daughter had been recently vaccinated. After she recovered and returned to school – despite the fact that Annabel told her school about her emergency room visit – the school vaccinated her again failing to connect the adverse reaction to the dangerous Gardasil vaccine. She died 15 days after her second dose of Gardasil. Her mother Linda had no knowledge when the vaccinations were given, which is perfectly legal in Canada.

    Vaccine Failures: The Glaring Problem Officials Are Ignoring. Part I: Measles Vaccination
    By the Children’s Health Defense Team
    JANUARY 07, 2020
    https://childrenshealthdefense.org/n...s-vaccination/

    (Too many hyperlinks in the article to embed here)

    "[Note: This is the first in a series of articles that examine the serious problem of vaccine failure—a problem that, scandalously, remains unacknowledged by the public health officials and politicians promoting draconian vaccine mandates. Part 2 examines the pertussis vaccination.]

    The coordinated and stepped-up effort to eliminate vaccine exemptions and impose new vaccine mandates was, without a doubt, one of 2019’s top stories, both nationally and internationally. One of the primary weapons in the anti-vaccine-choice arsenal was measles hysteria—whipped up by a biased media willing to use false talking points to demonize the unvaccinated while ignoring or glossing over measles vaccination’s flawed track record. As we brace for more measles hype in 2020, Children’s Health Defense believes it is important to keep calling attention to the real facts about the failures of mass measles vaccination.

    Studies show that levels of measles antibody progressively decrease with increased time since vaccination. Moreover, additional boosters do not solve the problem.
    Failure #1: Primary and secondary measles vaccine failures are common.

    It is far from uncommon for vaccines—including the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) and MMR-plus-varicella (MMRV) vaccines used in the United States—to fail to live up to their textbook promises. As of 2019, in fact, leading vaccine scientists admitted that “the ability of the current measles vaccine to sustain long-term protective immunity and adequate herd immunity in settings with no wild type virus exposure” is “still a subject of debate.”

    Right at the starting gate, anywhere from 2% to 12% of children who receive their first measles-containing vaccine exhibit “primary vaccine failure”—defined as vaccine non-responsiveness. For largely unknown reasons, this subset of children (and also adults) fails to mount the expected antibody response after either an initial vaccine or a booster shot. Even in those for whom the vaccine appears to “take,” vaccinated individuals “have lower levels of measles-specific antibody than do those with immunity derived from exposure to wild-type” measles virus.

    Secondary vaccine failure (waning immunity) is also a built-in feature of measles (and other) vaccines, with vaccine efficacy acknowledged to be “lower and not life-long compared to the wild type virus infection.” Studies show that levels of measles antibody progressively decrease with increased time since vaccination. Moreover, additional boosters do not solve the problem. In a CDC study of 18-28 year-olds who were given a third dose of MMR vaccine, protection petered out in less than a year—a fact that forced the study’s authors to argue against a routine third dose.

    Vaccine failure apparently received some attention in the 1970s and 1980s, but since the 1990s, the topic has dropped off of most researchers’ radar and remains woefully underinvestigated. Some vaccine scientists—astonished at the “surprisingly high numbers of vaccine failure among one- and two-dose recipients of measles-containing vaccine”—are calling for longer-term monitoring of vaccine-induced immunity after both the first and second doses, as well as more granular data about vaccine efficacy, immunogenicity and measles epidemiology.

    … infants born to vaccinated mothers had a ‘measles attack rate’ nearly triple that of babies born to unvaccinated mothers—33% versus 12%.
    Failure #2: Measles-vaccinated mothers are not passing on adequate immunity to their infants—thus, the most vulnerable age group is getting measles.

    Studies have confirmed that the maternal antibodies produced by measles vaccination (as opposed to the lifelong immunity furnished by natural measles infection) are incapable of providing infants with adequate maternal protection in the first year of life. As a result, a significant proportion of those getting measles are infants. As long ago as 1999, vaccine scientists already knew that vaccination was increasing U.S.-born infants’ vulnerability to measles. A study published that year in Pediatrics, titled “Increased Susceptibility to Measles in Infants in the United States,” reported that infants born to vaccinated mothers had a “measles attack rate” nearly triple that of babies born to unvaccinated mothers—33% versus 12%.

    In the first four months of 2019—when about 70% of U.S. measles cases for the year had already been reported—one-fourth of cases were in children younger than 15 months. An analysis of U.S. measles cases from 2001 through 2008 likewise found that 24% were in under-15-month-olds, and a CDC study of measles cases from 2001 through 2015 found that incidence per million population “was highest in infants aged 6 to 11 months . . . and toddlers aged 12 to 15 months.” As Children’s Health Defense has frequently noted, infants are at far greater risk of measles-related complications and death compared to elementary-school children over age five (the age group that primarily and uneventfully experienced measles in the pre-vaccine era).

    Failure #3: Vaccinated individuals are getting measles—probably more often than official counts show.

    Primary vaccine failure and waning vaccine-induced immunity open the door for measles in vaccinated individuals, and notably in vaccinated adults—another group at higher risk of measles complications.

    Available CDC data for part of 2019 indicate that at least 13% of U.S. measles cases with known vaccination status (76/579) had previously received one or more measles vaccine doses; vaccination status was unknown for an additional 18% of cases (125/704). Adults age 20 or older represented 23% of total cases (165/704). The CDC did not report vaccination status by age group.
    When the CDC analyzed fifteen years of measles cases (2001-2015), it reported the same percentages; the vaccinated represented roughly 13% of measles cases—and 65% of the vaccinated cases were in adults at least 18 years of age. In the 18% of cases for whom vaccination status was unknown, 87% were adults.
    A study of California measles cases, also from 2000 through 2015, reported that 20% of individuals with confirmed measles and verified vaccination status had received one or more doses of measles vaccine.
    Studies from around the world tell the same story, reporting measles, for example, in fully vaccinated Russian adults, Australian air travelers and residents of the Republic of the Marshall Islands.
    Official measles data almost certainly are underestimating the extent of measles in the vaccinated. This is because measles vaccination sometimes “modulates” the clinical presentation of measles, producing a different symptom picture. The California study of 2000-2015 measles cases found that individuals who had received two or more doses of measles-containing vaccine were often “less ill” than their one-dose or unvaccinated counterparts; importantly, however, they were still capable of transmitting measles and “required the same amount of public health effort in tracing contacts.” In 2009, two U.S. physicians who had been fully vaccinated with two-plus MMR doses got measles but “continued to see patients, because neither considered that they could have measles.” A 1990 study of seroconfirmed “vaccine-modified” measles found that about 16% of vaccinated patients either did not meet the CDC clinical case definition of measles or had no detectable measles-specific immunoglobulin M (IgM). An absent or weak IgM response makes it more challenging to diagnose and confirm measles in the laboratory. Researchers have concluded that these factors may be leading to “underreporting of measles cases and . . . overestimation of vaccine efficacy in highly vaccinated populations.”

    In 2015, sequencing of 194 U.S. measles cases showed that nearly two in five (38%) were the result of the vaccine strain rather than wild-type measles virus.
    Failure #4: Vaccinated individuals are getting measles from the vaccine and transmitting the vaccine strain to others.

    Recent CDC research indicates that cases of measles in individuals who experience primary vaccine failure “might be as transmissible as cases of measles in unvaccinated individuals.” In addition, modern genotyping techniques are showing that it is the vaccine strain of measles that is causing measles in a sizeable proportion of cases—in both vaccinated individuals and persons with whom vaccinees come in contact. The CDC has known about the potential for viral shedding from measles vaccines since at least the 1990s, when vaccine-strain measles injured and killed a 21-year-old college student. In 2015, sequencing of 194 U.S. measles cases showed that nearly two in five (38%) were the result of the vaccine strain rather than wild-type measles virus.

    In a 2016 study published in the Journal of Clinical Microbiology, CDC and other researchers spelled out the importance, during outbreak investigations, of differentiating between wild-type measles and vaccine-strain measles (which they called “measles vaccine reactions”). In 2019, however, the CDC sequenced only a third of measles cases. This lack of comprehensive information about measles strains for all cases not only contributes to underestimation of measles disease among the vaccinated but can lead to “unnecessary public health interventions.” The New York officials who last year barred unvaccinated children from public spaces and imposed measles vaccine mandates across entire zip codes were silent on the topic of vaccine-strain measles.

    Although vaccine scientists are loathe to admit that vaccinated individuals can function as vectors of measles transmission to others, scattered studies show that this is the case. Moreover, recent CDC research reported in JAMA Pediatrics indicates that primary cases of measles in vaccinated individuals are as likely to infect other vaccinated individuals as they are to spread measles to unvaccinated individuals. In 2011, New York City public health officials reported five cases of measles, all of whom “had prior evidence of measles immunity,” either from two doses of measles-containing vaccine or from a past titer positive for measles antibodies. What the researchers found particularly noteworthy was the fact that the index patient “was demonstrated to be capable of transmitting disease to other individuals” despite having received two MMR doses and despite similar immunity in the other four cases.

    In late 2019, Japanese researchers reported measles transmission from a twice-vaccinated individual to three unvaccinated persons; the chain of transmission then continued to six other persons, all fully vaccinated. (Japan banned the MMR vaccine in 1993 and instead uses a measles-rubella vaccine.) Without specifying how to achieve such an aim, the researchers concluded that “To prevent measles transmission and outbreak particularly in countries where measles was almost eliminated, patients with [secondary vaccine failure] for measles should be cautiously monitored.” CDC researchers, also writing in late 2019, agree that “continued monitoring of measles among vaccinated persons is warranted.”

    Failure #5: Vaccination failures aren’t limited to measles-containing vaccines—failure is inherent to all vaccines.

    Scientists have known about vaccine failure for years. In 2006, Canadian researchers admitted that “the immunity afforded by [imperfect] vaccines is not complete and may wane with time, leading to resurgence and epidemic outbreaks notwithstanding high levels of primary vaccination.” Summarizing the conundrum facing vaccination programs, the Canadian researchers noted that, on the one hand, “if the vaccine provides only temporary immunity, then the infection typically cannot be eradicated by a single vaccination episode,” but on the other hand, “having a booster program does not necessarily guarantee the control of a disease” either.

    Public health agencies and officials continue to sidestep this immensely consequential information, instead choosing to bludgeon citizens with factually incorrect measles and vaccine propaganda to justify more revocation of exemptions. However, a vaccination program that increases serious risks in the most vulnerable, produces ongoing outbreaks and transmits vaccine strains of illness to the vaccinated and unvaccinated alike can hardly be deemed a success.

    Vaccine Failures, Part 2: Pertussis Vaccination
    JANUARY 09, 2020
    By the Children’s Health Defense Team
    https://childrenshealthdefense.org/n...s-vaccination/

    (Too many hyperlinks in the article to embed here)

    "[Note: This is the second in a series of articles examining the serious problem of vaccine failure—a problem that, scandalously, remains unacknowledged by the public health officials and politicians promoting draconian vaccine mandates. Part 1 examined the measles vaccination.]


    Over the past decade, an average of over 25,000 cases of pertussis (the respiratory illness also known as “whooping cough”) has been reported to the CDC annually. The CDC made no mention of pertussis in its round-up of “nine health threats that made headlines in 2019” (whereas 1,276 non-fatal cases of measles made the list), but, judging from news reports, 2019 was another banner year for pertussis—especially in the vaccinated. And, as numerous peer-reviewed studies published in the past few years show, the blame must be laid squarely at the feet of a fatally flawed vaccination program that is making vaccinated children more rather than less susceptible to pertussis over their lifetimes.

    Pertussis vaccination targets the Bordetella pertussis (B. pertussis) organism, a “fastidious” bacterial pathogen spread by respiratory droplets. Nationally, pertussis-containing vaccine coverage is high—just shy of 95%—yet, by the CDC’s own admission, pertussis outbreaks are increasingly frequent. In addition, many cases of pertussis go undiagnosed and, therefore, unreported, with an estimated ratio of up to 1,400 undocumented pertussis infections for every recorded case. Given the high vaccination rate and the known fact that vaccinated persons can transmit pertussis asymptomatically (see Failure #4), it is important to dissect the spectacular failure of U.S. pertussis vaccination efforts in greater detail.

    Numerous studies (both recent and not-so-recent) indicate that this dose-intensive vaccination regimen—far from providing meaningful protection—may actually be facilitating pertussis outbreaks.
    Failure #1: In the U.S., children and adults who receive pertussis-containing vaccines, immunity wanes rapidly—a fact known and reiterated for years.
    In the U.S., the CDC’s childhood vaccine schedule includes five doses of the diphtheria-tetanus-acellular pertussis (DTaP) vaccine at two, four, six and 15-18 months and 4-6 years, followed by a dose of tetanus-diphtheria-acellular pertussis (Tdap) vaccine at age 11 or 12 and more Tdap boosters in adulthood. (The CDC also recommends “off-license” administration of a Tdap dose to pregnant women during each pregnancy.) Numerous studies (both recent and not-so-recent) indicate that this dose-intensive vaccination regimen—far from providing meaningful protection—may actually be facilitating pertussis outbreaks.

    Waning immunity (also called secondary vaccine failure) is one of the leading factors contributing to the pertussis fiasco. Top vaccine experts have been surprisingly frank in admitting this major shortcoming:

    In 2017, Dr. Stanley Plotkin, the well-known vaccine developer (and former medical and scientific director of Sanofi Pasteur) who consults for vaccine manufacturers, wrote about the rapid waning of pertussis vaccines, stating that vaccine effectiveness drops off “as early as 2-3 years post-boosters.” Plotkin and his two coauthors (one affiliated with Sanofi) pointed to a record-breaking 2010 pertussis outbreak in California that witnessed high disease rates in fully vaccinated preadolescents; two-thirds (66%) of the cases in fully vaccinated children were in 7- to 10-year-olds—that is, children not far removed from their fifth dose of DTaP. The trio of authors conceded that current pertussis vaccines provide inferior immunity compared to the “rather robust” immunity induced by natural pertussis infection.
    Another 2017 study, this time by Kaiser Permanente and GlaxoSmithKline authors, reported that not only does pertussis vaccine effectiveness wane substantially after the fifth dose—falling, by their estimate, an average of 27% per year—but waning occurs with all DTaP brands on the market. In a different study, some of the same Kaiser researchers pronounced waning DTaP immunity to be an “important cause of pertussis” in age-appropriately vaccinated children over 18 months of age.
    A 2016 study by a consortium of Canadian scientists described the rapid decline in pertussis vaccine effectiveness—notably at around the four-year mark since last vaccination.
    Failure #2: Pertussis outbreaks are frequent, and the majority of cases are occurring in the vaccinated.
    In early 2019, news outlets covered a pertussis outbreak at an elite, 1,600-student private high school in Los Angeles. Notwithstanding a “really high vaccination rate,” 30 students—all vaccinated—developed pertussis, whereas none of the high school’s unvaccinated students (18 students with medical exemptions) contracted the infection. School officials even emphasized that the outbreak could not be attributed to the unvaccinated students. That same month, a UCLA researcher (one of the nation’s top authorities on pertussis vaccination) characterized the increased lifetime susceptibility to pertussis faced by DTaP-vaccinated children as a conundrum with no easy solution.

    A study in Pediatrics that followed in July 2019 reported that 82% of pediatric pertussis cases identified by Kaiser Permanente California were in children who had been fully vaccinated (including 12% “fully vaccinated plus 1 dose”), and another 5% of cases occurred in partially pertussis-vaccinated children. From ages one and a half to seven years, vaccinated children’s pertussis risk quintupled once three or more years had elapsed since vaccination.

    Capping off 2019, a Catholic school and daycare center in Houston—where 100% of the students were vaccinated—was forced to close early for the Christmas holidays due to a pertussis outbreak. In a letter to parents, the principal and school pastor stated that “Doctors are unsure why vaccinated children may still get the disease,” but news reports zeroed in on waning immunity as the likely culprit.

    However, another 60% of cases were in children: 32% in those aged 1-10 years and 28% in preadolescents and adolescents (ages 11-18).
    Failure #3: Pertussis risks are significant in infants but are also shifting toward adolescence and adulthood.
    Pertussis incidence is high in infants. From 2000 through 2016 (a period of time in which pertussis incidence “increased significantly” across the U.S.), infants in their first year of life represented 15% of cases—with incidence anywhere from 4 to 63 times higher than for other age groups. Infants also had the highest hospitalization rate and accounted for 89% of deaths. However, another 60% of cases were in children: 32% in those aged 1-10 years and 28% in preadolescents and adolescents (ages 11-18).

    At the same time, some researchers are describing a shift in the burden of pertussis toward adolescents and young adults as well as older adults. In one managed care setting, 59% of cases from 2006-2015 were in adolescents or adults. These shifts have implications in terms of both pertussis severity and health care costs. For example, while adults 65 years of age or older represented just 2.4% of U.S. pertussis cases between 2000-2016, these older adults constituted 14% of pertussis-related hospitalizations and 5% of deaths. Average charges for inpatient care for a pertussis episode in an older adult are significant—over $14,000 per patient. A recent study confirms that the clinical management of thousands of pertussis cases annually “is associated with substantial economic burden,” especially in patients from the two most vulnerable age groups—infants and older adults.

    In fact, in light of studies suggesting that subclinically infected adults are the most likely source of transmission to infants, it seems possible that cocooning could increase rather than decrease risks for the very youngest.
    Failure #4: Asymptomatic vaccinated individuals are a major source of B. pertussis transmission.
    A number of studies have suggested that “vaccinated individuals may harbor and transmit [pertussis] infection, even in the absence of typical pertussis symptoms.” In a 2020 systematic review, the authors conclude that “the prevalence of asymptomatic infection is high” and that “frequent close contact occurring in household settings may provide sufficient opportunity for B. pertussis to spread.”

    In 2015, an article in BMC Medicine made a similar case, asserting that asymptomatic transmission by pertussis-vaccinated individuals to their close contacts provides “the most parsimonious explanation for many of the observations surrounding the resurgence of B. pertussis” in the United States as well as the United Kingdom. Drawing out various implications for pertussis vaccination policy, the authors commented that asymptomatic transmission:

    Can account for the increase in pertussis incidence
    Is consistent with the timing of changes in age-specific pertussis attack rates
    May be biasing assessments of vaccine efficacy
    The BMC Medicine authors also noted the likely futility of “vaccinating individuals in close contact with infants too young to receive the vaccine” (so-called “cocooning”). In fact, in light of studies suggesting that subclinically infected adults are the most likely source of transmission to infants, it seems possible that cocooning could increase rather than decrease risks for the very youngest.

    An emerging and disturbing area of research links asymptomatic B. pertussis colonization to the development in the host of serious conditions such as epilepsy, multiple sclerosis (MS) and even Alzheimer’s disease.
    Failure #5: Subclinical pertussis infection is linked to other serious health risks.
    In their 2017 article on waning immunity, Stanley Plotkin and coauthors noted that acellular-pertussis-containing vaccines are less effective than either natural infection or the more dangerous whole-cell-pertussis vaccines (no longer in use in the U.S.) in staving off B. pertussis colonization of the nasopharynx; other researchers concur that subclinical nasopharyngeal colonization by B. pertussis is common in highly vaccinated populations. An emerging and disturbing area of research links asymptomatic B. pertussis colonization to the development in the host of serious conditions such as epilepsy, multiple sclerosis (MS) and even Alzheimer’s disease. The researchers making this case for MS (who are developing a new pertussis vaccine) refer to the half-century-old observation that “The epidemiological features of multiple sclerosis are compatible with the hypothesis that the clinical illness may be an occasional manifestation of a widespread subclinical infection.”

    Failure #6: Today’s pertussis vaccines are not keeping up with bacterial mutations.
    In the midst of the numerous 2019 pertussis outbreaks, USA Today reported on CDC research suggesting that today’s whooping cough “is being battled by yesterday’s vaccine” as a result of growing vaccine resistance—or what researchers call “adaptation of B. pertussis to vaccine selection pressure.” In 2014, CDC researchers reported a dramatic increase in mutated B. pertussis isolates all over the U.S., with the mutated isolates representing more than 50% of collected isolates in 2012—a year in which U.S. pertussis cases spiked to over 48,000 (a 157% increase over 2011). The CDC Pertussis Working Group later acknowledged the need to study circulating genotypes that diverge “from existing laboratory and vaccine reference strains” and assess whether they alter antigen expression and lead to changes in the burden of disease.

    Studies also show that infections triggered by another Bordetella pathogen called B. parapertussis are becoming more common around the world and are affecting “mainly vaccinated populations.” Because B. parapertussis has mechanisms that allow it to “evade the immune response induced by pertussis vaccines,” the incidence of B. parapertussis infection increased after the introduction of acellular pertussis vaccines. A study of pertussis infections in Massachusetts from 1990 through 2008 found that one in ten cases were due to B. parapertussis, with most cases in precisely the 5- to 10-year age group “expected to have strong vaccine-induced immunity.” Other studies have confirmed that existing pertussis vaccines “are not protective against disease induced by B. parapertussis.”

    …the obfuscation of important information about vaccine failures is convenient for the ‘power brokers’ who ‘continue making money without improving the product through technologically possible advances.’
    Failure #7: Doctors and public health officials are not being forthright about vaccine failure.
    In a commentary on the 2019 pertussis outbreaks, investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson raises pertinent questions of disclosure and informed consent, asking whether doctors who administer pertussis vaccines are “disclosing to parents that the whooping cough protection will only last a relatively short time” and that middle school boosters are “probably only effective for about a year”? Atkisson’s point about incomplete disclosure and inadequate informed consent applies to virtually all vaccines recommended for children and adults. However, as Atkisson concludes, the obfuscation of important information about vaccine failures is convenient for the “power brokers” who “continue making money without improving the product through technologically possible advances.” "

    Making Homeschooling and Private Schools Illegal
    From: Restore Liability For The Vaccine Makers Facebook page

    "This is why we must fight the hpv and flu vaccine bills.

    UT has slipped wording into a tax bill that essentially makes homeschooling and private schools illegal, requiring that all students attend public schools. This type of move is exactly why those of us against vaccine mandates keep stepping up, because we saw the writing on the wall: first they mandate vaccines or expulsion from public schools, then they mandate public schools or fine/imprison parents.

    Doctors Caught on Tape Plotting to Take Custody of Newborns Whose Parents Refuse Vitamin K Shots

    BY MEGAN FOX NOVEMBER 12, 2019

    https://pjmedia.com/trending/doctors...tamin-k-shots/

    (Audio at this link)

    "After a class-action lawsuit was filed in October against several hospitals, Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS), and several doctors, audio has surfaced of some of the defendants in the case plotting to collude with DCFS to take children away from parents extra-lawfully. Recordings of these doctors at a committee meeting appear to bolster the plaintiffs' claims that the hospitals and agencies named in the suit "used the power given to them as State officials and/or employees and through their authorities and investigative powers to cause the Plaintiffs to be threatened and coerced into accepting unwanted and unnecessary medical procedures," as alleged in the lawsuit.

    In April of 2018, the Perinatal Advisory Committee (PAC) that operates under the Illinois Department of Health met to discuss giving injections of Vitamin K in violation of the written refusals of parents. Not all the people on the recording can be identified by voice. PJ Media reached out to the members of the PAC but none would respond to identify who is speaking. But it is certain that all persons speaking are on the committee and a list of who was there can be seen at the end of this article. The following is a transcript of the recording.

    ILLINOIS DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC HEALTH - PERINATAL ADVISORY COMMITTEE MEETING (PAC) April 12, 2018 1:00 p.m. until 3:00 p.m. ***ROUGH DRAFT - PARTIAL TRANSCRIPT***
    WOMAN #2: On the wording on this and I actually just texted our neonatologist cause he wanted to be here and couldn’t. We are a little concerned that it’s saying: “The hospitals will.” But it says: “DCFS may”. Mandating hospitals to do things but giving DCFS options to do things. So, then that puts the hospital in a little bit of a problem because I don’t think hospitals want to be taking over custody all the time and then DCFS may investigate for medical neglect.

    WOMAN #1: Its… the issue is whether you are mandated to give vitamin k by taking protective custody. This is what this does. It doesn’t mean that DCFS has to say the parent can’t be the parent. But, it gives you the chance to give the child vitamin K through DCFS.

    UNDETERMINED MAN: Correct.

    WOMAN #1: So, I think it is okay. You don’t need every parent to be accused of medical neglect and investigated. You need the right to give the vitamin k which DCFS will provide the custody for with this consistent message.

    MS. LIGHTNER: I think you want the wiggle room of the “may” on the DCFS side because what I have heard is: If they are automatically slapped with medical neglect there’s all sorts of ramifications there. So, you want DCFS to have that… because if it’s shall…

    MAN #3: So, please clarify if DCFS says “No, we are not going to investigate” but the hospital has taken…

    WOMAN #1: You can take… Protective custody is just the right to do what you think is right for the baby. And, DCFS, if they say, ‘yes, that we agree with you, cause this is our rule’. You give the vitamin K and then do any of us really care what happens next?

    WOMAN #3: No, but can they sue you then?

    WOMAN #1: No, because you have their… you took protective custody. That’s the part that we have to assure with DCFS. That when we do this…

    MS. LIGHTNER: Need DCFS to assure you.

    WOMAN #1: Yes, that’s what I mean, DCFS has to say, ‘This is our protocol, no matter what else we do: You are protected.’

    MAN #3: At what point does protective custody stop?

    MULTIPLE VOICES. Right after…

    UNDETERMINED WOMAN: It’s two minutes or whatever it is.

    UNDETERMINED WOMAN: How much beyond?

    UNDETERMINED MAN: As soon as you give the injection.

    UNDETERMINED WOMAN Continues: Is it two minutes? Is it ten minutes? Do we wait until DCFS says we are coming or we are not coming?

    WOMAN #1: They don’t have to come. I think protective custody is you just claim that you have done it.

    Lawsuit: Parents Say Newborns Were Illegally Seized after They Refused Non-Mandatory Procedures

    This audio is shocking proof that doctors hold immense power over individual rights. Liberty died around a board room table in Chicago that day. Innocent parents had their children removed from their custody on nothing more than some unelected busybody's opinion that their medical degree was more important than constitutional rights and the right to informed consent.

    At least one member of the PAC made it clear that she didn't care what happened after she imposed her will on American citizens using the power of the State. Although she may not care what happens next, when a doctor declares a parent unfit to make medical decisions and involves child welfare, the consequences are nothing short of horrific.

    Medical kidnappings can and do result in accusations of "medical child abuse" by child welfare agents, leading to lengthy court battles and even the termination of parental rights. The Drake Pardo case in Texas illustrates this growing threat to families.

    Drake was taken from his parents and put into foster care because his mother wanted a second opinion on his condition. Theirs isn't the only story of doctors-gone-wild with power and professional privilege. The case of Justine Pelletier resulted in national attention when Boston Children's Hospital held a child with a rare mitochondrial disease for 16 months against her will, without proper treatment, and away from her parents in a psych ward until a judge intervened and ordered her to be returned to her family.

    The epidemic of doctors taking custody of children because they deem themselves smarter and more capable of making decisions than parents is getting worse across all fields of medicine where children are seen, especially in rare genetic disorder cases. Mitochondrial Disease News reported the scary reality.

    “This issue comes up over and over,” said Hollinger, director of education, support and advocacy at the Boston-based nonprofit organization. “Munchausen syndrome by proxy is a real thing and it happens extremely rarely. But this new term ‘medical child abuse’ is really a game changer. It’s basically Munchausen by proxy but with no boundaries — and it often includes medical neglect, which I find ironic.”

    Hollinger, who has been with MitoAction for eight years, was previously a nurse at New York’s Albany Medical Center. She spoke about medical child abuse at an October 2017 rare disease summit in Washington, D.C., sponsored by the National Organization for Rare Disorders, which counts MitoAction among its 260 patient advocacy groups.

    “We need medical professionals, but the way I see it, the families are experts on their child in a way the doctor isn’t,” Hollinger explained. “We are not all the same, even if we have the same genetic mutations.”

    She added: “Child protective agencies are out there, and they work quite closely with the doctors. But they’re overworked and they know nothing about rare diseases. So, if some doctor or school says ‘I think they’re overdoing it,’ Child Protective Services will ask the name of this disease. They’re already aligning themselves — and not in your ballpark.”

    The fact that doctors in Chicago are trying to expand the definition of medical neglect to include refusal of procedures that are not mandated by law, and DCFS appears to be eager to do their bidding, is unconscionable and if unchecked it will lead to more innocent families torn apart unnecessarily. The lawsuit is a good step forward to hold these people accountable, but there is no amount of money that can make right the damage that is done to a bonding newborn and mother when forcibly separated.

    The recorded members of the PAC who were in attendance at the April 2018 meeting can be seen in the screenshot of the meeting minutes below.

    WHO NOW DEEMS YOUR CHILD’S PRESENCE IN SCHOOL AS INFORMED CONSENT TO VACCINATE THEM (IT’S CALLED ‘IMPLIED CONSENT’)

    "The World Health Organization, which is the medical epicenter of the depopulation lobby, now considers your child’s presence in school informed consent to vaccinate that child. Depopulation by vaccination us now fully outside the law and will sterilize, sicken and dumb down every child on earth but the children of the depop lobby members who don’t vaccinate their children.

    EVERYONE needs to see the WHO footage where they admit they do NOT have research data that is claimed and NO IDEA of what these multiple adjuvants and antigens do when mixed up in the human body. There was even mention of gathering data AFTER the vaccines are introduced (making it clear WE are the experimental subjects)

    and on facebook this week after NJ debacle, Sherri Tenpenny and others are reminding us that these mandates violate the very basis of the US bill of rights and the Nuremberg code.

    Big Pharma Spends $30 BILLION on Medical Marketing – Wants Vaccine Exemptions Eliminated
    1/11/20
    by Vera Sharav
    Alliance for Natural Health
    https://vaccineimpact.com/2020/big-p...ns-eliminated/

    The Elephant in the Auditorium — Big Pharma Profiteering on the Bodies of Children


    Maryl Nass, M.D.

    "In her meticulously referenced testimony submitted to the Massachusetts legislature which is considering whether to eliminate religious exemptions from the childhood vaccination schedule, Meryl Nass, MD, board member of the Alliance for Human Research Protection, laid out the facts to refute the Pharma-orchestrated propaganda about vaccines.

    First: “there is no crisis (no epidemic of deaths or disabilities) from infectious diseases caused by unvaccinated children, either in Massachusetts or the United States.”

    She pointed out that “the elephant in the auditorium today is Pharma profits.” Merck lists on its website over 1,000 candidates for state and federal offices to whom it “contributed” money in 2018.

    Pharma money purchases the allegiance of our major media corporations: in addition to its expenditure for advertising to consumers — $6.4 billion — Pharma spent in 2016, Pharma spent $29.9 billion on medical marketing.

    “Pharma’s latest risky strategy is trying to rid the world of vaccine exemptions, to prevent vaccine opt-outs–before a new crop of vaccines, with inadequate safety and efficacy testing. Vaccines for which Pharma will have no liability once they are placed on the childhood schedule.”

    Dr. Nass points out the added danger that government waivers of vaccine liability posed for children.

    “waivers discourage manufacturers from ensuring that the vaccines they sell are as safe and effective as possible. The removal of vaccine exemptions, combined with liability waivers for vaccine side effects and recently loosened standards for licensing vaccines, create a highly toxic mix.”



    My name is Dr. Meryl Nass.

    I am an internal medicine physician in Ellsworth, Maine.

    I graduated from MIT and the University of Mississippi School of Medicine.

    I have testified to 6 Congressional committees, primarily on anthrax vaccine and Gulf War Syndrome, and the permanent injuries suffered by service-members who received military vaccines of poor quality.

    I have also testified about the issue of vaccine exemptions to legislative committees in Maine, Vermont and New Brunswick.

    I saw firsthand how pharmaceutical industry lobbyists patrolled legislative halls, provided talking points, schooled public servants, and helped constrain the terms of this debate.

    The elephant in the auditorium today is Pharma profits.

    Dare I say out loud that our children’s arms and bodies are the delivery system for transferring money from the citizens of the Commonwealth to the pharmaceutical industry?

    The pharmaceutical industry has undertaken a very ambitious campaign to legislate away vaccine exemptions in the United States and Canada.

    France, Italy and Germany have rescinded vaccine exemptions too, suggesting the campaign is worldwide.

    The pharmaceutical industry exerts enormous influence on government regulators,[1] their advisors,[2] [3] professional medical organizations,[4] key opinion leaders[5] and medical journals[6] as well as the mass media and lawmakers.[7]

    This is not debatable[8]–there are dozens of studies proving it.

    Merck has a list on its website of over 1,000 candidates for state and federal offices to whom they gave money in 2018[9].

    Merck also lists payments to hundreds of professional medical organizations, patient organizations, Pharma lobbying groups, and scores of Republican and Democratic PACs and committees.[10]

    Julie Gerberding, the former CDC Director, became president of Merck Vaccines as soon as she was allowed.[11]

    The last FDA Commissioner just left for Pfizer.[12] The revolving door is slamming Americans.

    Pharmaceutical manufacturers spent $6.4 billion on direct-to-consumer advertising in the US in 2016, and $29.9 billion total on medical marketing.[13]

    Pharma money purchases the allegiance of our major media corporations, in addition to buying advertising.
    And it’s tax deductible.

    The pharmaceutical industry does not play by the rules you and I must follow. Instead, the industry makes it a rule to break the law, regularly paying civil and criminal penalties in the billions of dollars.

    Big Pharma CEOs have not been sent to jail in decades, and paying settlements for their illegal behaviors has become simply the cost of doing business.

    This is an industry that has thrived by taking big risks–even when manufacturers knew in advance that their products killed.

    Merck paid out $4.85 billion to settle 27,000 Vioxx injury claims, after it was estimated the drug caused 38,000 deaths from heart attacks.[14]

    But annual sales had topped $2.5 billion/year, likely leading them to at least break even.

    According to Public Citizen:

    “From 1991 through 2015, a total of 373 settlements were reached between the federal and state governments and pharmaceutical manufacturers, for a total of $35.7 billion.”

    Pharma’s latest risky strategy is trying to rid the world of vaccine exemptions, to prevent vaccine opt-outs–before a new crop of vaccines, with inadequate safety and efficacy testing,[15] and for which they will have no liability once placed on the childhood schedule, are approved.

    I doubt this is what you have been told. But the industry moves deliberately, one step at a time. First it got the 21st Century Cures Act passed, in November 2016. This Act:

    directed the FDA to more readily license vaccines, using “real world evidence” in place of randomized, controlled clinical trials.

    directed CDC to immediately place each newly licensed vaccine before its advisory committee, to be considered for inclusion in the childhood vaccine schedule.

    Inclusion in the schedule is the criterion needed to get a vaccine its waiver of manufacturer liability.

    directed that all vaccines recommended for use in pregnant women (currently influenza and Tdap, but many more are in the pipeline) were granted liability waivers.
    Getting a vaccine approved for use during pregnancy is the newest Pharma gold rush.

    This despite evidence[16] [17] (which CDC disputes) that flu vaccine is associated with a doubling of miscarriage rates, and evidence that anthrax vaccine increases the miscarriage rate.[18]

    Neither flu nor Tdap vaccines were tested and approved by FDA for use in pregnancy. According to the WHO[19]:
    “…pre-licensing clinical trials of vaccines do not usually include pregnant and lactating women.

    Reports available also provide limited post-licensing data, as once again, pregnant women are usually not included in clinical trials.

    This in turn has limited the ability to make evidence-based decisions and provide optimal guidance on the use of vaccines in this population.”

    Despite this, pregnant women are being told to receive both flu and Tdap vaccines during every pregnancy.
    Don’t you see something sick in this?

    The year-long media blitz over measles didn’t only usher in bills to remove vaccine exemptions.
    It was also a bonanza for sales.

    Merck, which makes the only measles vaccines in the US, saw sales of its MMRV vaccine increase 58% in 2019.[20]

    It has been claimed that vaccines are, by nature, extremely safe. Yet vaccines are usually injected, bypassing all the body’s natural barriers.

    Even minute contamination or inadequate microbial inactivation can maim or kill. Contaminated batches of vaccine do occur.[21]

    Usually contaminated lots are discarded, but in the case of anthrax, polio and other vaccines, millions of doses were used.[22] [23]

    Vaccines have caused many autoimmune disorders, from Guillain-Barre syndrome to narcolepsy. (Both were side effects of swine flu vaccines used in the 2009 pandemic.)

    Vaccines appear safe because the immediate side effects are usually mild and temporary.

    Serious vaccine side effects often take weeks or months to surface, and by then it is difficult to know what caused them.

    Only when vaccinated individuals have rates of illness at least 10 times higher than the unvaccinated, is the side effect likely to be linked to the vaccine.

    A 2009 European swine flu vaccine (GSK’s Pandemrix) caused over 1300 cases of severe narcolepsy, mostly in adolescents.[24]

    This vaccine was linked to narcolepsy because 15 times the usual number of narcolepsy cases suddenly appeared in clinics.

    Countries that bought the swine flu vaccines, through WHO, were required to waive manufacturer liability as a condition of purchase.

    Litigation by those injured continues to be active in the UK, where both the manufacturer and the UK government deny any responsibility for injuries.

    It should be apparent, but isn’t: government waivers of vaccine liability discourage manufacturers from ensuring that the vaccines they sell are as safe and effective as possible.

    The removal of vaccine exemptions, combined with liability waivers for vaccine side effects and recently loosened standards for licensing vaccines, create a highly toxic mix.

    There is no crisis (no epidemic of deaths or disabilities) from infectious diseases caused by lack of vaccinations, either in Massachusetts or the United States.

    According to the CDC, vaccination rates in the Commonwealth are consistently better than the US average.

    Over 96% of Massachusetts children have been vaccinated with each of the MMR, DTaP and Polio vaccines before kindergarten.[25]

    Only pertussis regularly circulates, due to failure of the vaccine.

    While measles made major headlines in the US all year, the last time a child died from measles in the US was 2003.

    The child who died had had a bone marrow transplant 3 months earlier.

    He was not exposed to anyone with measles, and may have developed measles from a live vaccine.

    The US averages several hundred measles cases annually, mostly due to travelers who enter the US while incubating the disease.

    It has never been totally eradicated.

    Massachusetts had 1 measles case in 2019.

    There may be a million cases of pertussis in the US yearly, because the vaccine works poorly and wears off quickly.

    Only a fraction of cases are diagnosed and counted.

    Studies show that most cases of pertussis occur in the fully vaccinated[26]

    Therefore, you cannot achieve herd immunity for pertussis with current vaccines.

    The pertussis bacteria regularly circulate, as they would even with a 100% vaccination rate.

    There are about 10 pertussis deaths in the US yearly, mostly in infants too young to be vaccinated.

    Vaccinating 100% rather than the current 96.4% of Massachusetts children for pertussis would not prevent pertussis deaths.

    There are approximately 2500 mumps cases in the US yearly, but according to CDC no recent mumps deaths.[27]

    Two doses of vaccine are only about 86% effective.[28] Most mumps cases occur in vaccinated students.

    There are approximately 10 rubella cases yearly in the US, but since 2012 all cases were infected outside the country.[29]

    There have been no wild polio cases originating in the US since 1979.

    However, cases of polio due to live polio vaccine viruses (or their mutations) would occasionally occur.

    This led to the US switching to killed, injected polio vaccines (Salk, not Sabin type) after 1999.

    Between 2004 and 2017, only 2 diphtheria cases were reported in the entire US.
    Varicella zostercauses chickenpox and shingles.

    Once infected (or vaccinated with live vaccine) the virus permanently resides in your body.

    Thus, it cannot be eliminated from the population using current, live vaccines.

    The vaccine is about 85% effective.

    Many countries, including the UK, do not recommend it.

    Most varicella cases occur in the vaccinated.

    However, there are highly effective treatments for varicella.

    While varicella infections are common in immunocompromised children, usually due to virus already in their bodies, there is only about 1 child death per year from varicella in the US.

    Tetanus does not spread from person to person.

    It is caused by Clostridium tetanibacterial spores in the outdoor environment.

    There are about 30 cases per year in the US.

    Hepatitis B is a viral infection that can only be spread through blood or sexual contact.

    Rates of infection in childhood are extremely low in the US.

    There is one new case reported per 100,000 Americans/year.[30]

    All pregnant women are screened for hepatitis B.

    The few who are positive are treated, and their newborns treated prophylactically.

    Neither tetanus nor hepatitis B can be spread by casual contact.

    Neither can spread from child to child during ordinary school activities.

    To summarize, below are all the currently required vaccines for Massachusetts schoolchildren, and the risks related to the diseases they can prevent.

    It should be obvious that increasing 96-97% vaccination rates another 2% or 3% will have a negligible effect on these illnesses:

    Diphtheria–extremely rare

    Tetanus–non-communicable

    Pertussis–regularly circulates despite vaccinations

    Measles–rare, death extraordinarily rare[31]

    Mumps–several thousand cases/year in US, no recent deaths

    Rubella–no cases of US origin in recent years

    Varicella–can circulate despite vaccination, kills 1 highly compromised child/year in US

    Hepatitis B–non-communicable in school

    Polio–no cases originating in the US for decades

    On the other hand, vaccine injuries are not trivial.

    Most serious vaccine injuries involve autoimmune illnesses and/or neurological injuries that affect personality and intelligence.

    While I cannot tell you the rate at which these injuries occur, because the medical literature is inconsistent, they are not rare.

    You probably know a family with a vaccine-injured member.

    Were the Legislature to remove most vaccine exemptions, it would probably not prevent a single death from infection, and prevent only a modicum of illness. However, significant vaccine injuries would almost certainly occur in currently exempted children.

    Proportionality, the Supreme Court and Vaccine Mandates
    The seminal Supreme Court case regarding a state or municipality’s authority to institute a mandatory vaccination program is Jacobson v Massachusetts.

    While this 1905 Supreme Court decision upheld the right of Cambridge, MA to impose smallpox vaccination on adults over 21 during a smallpox epidemic, according to the Congressional Research Service, the Court “did acknowledge limits to the state’s power to protect the public health, and set forth a reasonableness test for public health measures:

    [I]t might be that an acknowledged power of a local community to protect itself against an epidemic threatening the safety of all, might be exercised in particular circumstances and in reference to particular persons in such an arbitrary, unreasonable manner, or might go so far beyond what was reasonably required for the safety of the public, as to authorize or compel the courts to interfere for the protection of such persons.”[32]

    Furthermore, the penalty Jacobson paid was $5.00–or about $150 today.
    He was not forced to be vaccinated, even when smallpox had a 30% mortality rate.

    He paid a reasonable fine.

    In the bills we are discussing today, the penalty for refusing vaccinations is insuperably harsh.

    The value of an education to a family is incalculable, but might be valued in the hundreds of thousands of dollars.[33]

    In US law, the doctrine of proportionality means that the punishment should fit the crime.[34]

    In the Jacobson case, the punishment for remaining unvaccinated was about $150, not the $150,000 or more cost of an education.

    As for the bills under discussion today, don’t they, as the Supreme Court noted, “go so far beyond what was reasonably required for the safety of the public…” — suggesting the courts should interfere to protect the unvaccinated?

    If versions of these bills pass, won’t the Commonwealth become entangled in litigation over them for years to come?

    Parallel with the effort to end non-medical vaccine exemptions is a major federal/state effort to restrict medical exemptions.

    The CDC recently revised its advice on vaccine exemptions, significantly reducing the list of conditions for which vaccinations might be dangerous.[35] [36]

    The CDC also issued revised “Vaccine Information Statements” in August and October 2019,[37] which must be given to parents before their child is vaccinated, according to federal law.

    The new Vaccine Information Statements removed the statement, “Some people should not get this vaccine”; removed many reasons not to vaccinate; and removed information on adverse vaccine reactions.

    I am providing you with the old and new polio Vaccine Information Statements so you can see this for yourself

    The intention is to both restrict and federalize the granting of medical exemptions for vaccines.

    Proposed laws would have state health department employees issue medical exemptions for patients they have never seen, using suddenly appearing CDC guidelines which lack supporting evidence — usurping the role of physicians in determining eligibility to be safely vaccinated.

    The bedrock expectation of medical ethics is that patients must give informed consent for all medical procedures, including vaccines.

    Informed consent means that patients must be informed about the procedure, have the right to refuse, and may not be coerced to accept it.

    Isn’t withholding an education an extreme form of coercion?

    Without any discussion of its moral or ethical dimensions by media, medical societies or government officials, the requirement for informed consent for medical procedures, including vaccinations, vanishes in the blink of an eye when patients are not allowed the right to refuse.

    Must the issue of childhood vaccine exemptions be politicized?

    Both political parties enjoy Pharma’s largesse.

    In other states, party leadership has corralled Members and Senators in order to push through legislation to rescind and tighten vaccine exemptions, despite constituent opposition.

    Will this happen in Massachusetts?

    Please weigh carefully the risks to society against the risks to vulnerable children whose parents have decided not to fully vaccinate them.

    Please consider the damage such a law would make to our right to bodily autonomy and to informed consent.

    Eliminating the right to refuse vaccinations places us on a very slippery slope.

    Please do not allow yourselves to do the dirty work of Pharma, unscrupulously couched as an effort to protect vulnerable citizens.

    If passed, these bills will harm far more vulnerable citizens than they help.

    Thank you very much for your consideration.
    I would be happy to answer your questions or provide additional documentation for any of these points."

    June 2, 2019


    June 2, 2019 — Canada already has a law allowing children to be vaccinated without parental knowledge or consent, and that law has killed at least one young healthy girl. Her name was Annabel Morin. She was vaccinated in school and 16 days later had a severe adverse reaction but no one connected it to the vaccination. Her mother had no clue her daughter had been recently vaccinated. After she recovered and returned to school – despite the fact that Annabel told her school about her emergency room visit – the school vaccinated her again failing to connect the adverse reaction to the dangerous Gardasil vaccine. She died 15 days after her second dose of Gardasil. Her mother Linda had no knowledge when the vaccinations were given, which is perfectly legal in Canada.

    The intense manipulation of these kids is appalling. They are giving these vaccines to most of the kids at school and then the few that parents don't want them to get them are told that they can defy the wish of their parents. During the teen years, it is only natural to want to do that. It would take a kid with steel fortification to firmly say no and withstand the peer pressure and disapproval of adults telling them it's ok to defy parents because this vaccine is so very important to their well being. There is something so very wrong with this.

    Default Re: The US Vaccine issue is more than just about "the Shots", it is about totalitarian tiptoe

    I wanted to share the last visit I had to the doctors office. I rarely go, and up to this point I have not been hassled about the fact that I refuse vaccines. I was being seen by a women's health practitioner and she really pressured me. The biggest push was for the Shingrix vaccine for some reason. She claimed that this was a new type of vaccine that is 91 % effective and quite harmless. She went on to remind me what a horrible thing shingles is and as a nurse I should know this. I thought I would look into this "miracle" vaccine and was kind of shocked about the side effects of this thing.



    https://thevaccinereaction.org/2018/...ious-problems/

    The new herpes zoster (shingles) vaccine, Shingrix, is produced by GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) and is being marketed as the welcome and best answer to preventing a painful bout with shingles. GSK’s Shingrix vaccine is in head to head competition with Merck’s shingles vaccine, Zostavax, licensed in 2006. The relentless advertising for Shingrix is difficult to avoid: It is blared over grocery store speakers, has taken the place of muzak on pharmacy or doctors’ office hold lines, and is aggressively being promoted by nearly the entire medical establishment.

    Shingles is caused by reactivation of the chickenpox virus (varicella zoster) in a person who has previously had either natural chickenpox or has received the vaccine. Children or adults who get shingles suffer with a painful, blistering rash, usually on one side of the body. The rash and blisters usually last for two or three weeks and the nerve pain may persist for months or even years.1 The condition usually occurs in adults over age 50, which is why public health officials and vaccine manufacturers target that population for marketing shingles vaccines. However, shingles has also been diagnosed more frequently in children since the chickenpox vaccine was licensed and recommended for all healthy children in 1995.2

    Two doses of Shingrix costs close to $300.

    Since its approval in October of 2017, Shingrix vaccine has overshadowed the older Zostavax vaccine produced by Merck, which had been the only shingles vaccine available in the U.S. for more than a decade. Shingrix is reported to be up to 90 percent effective in preventing the development of shingles, compared to an estimated 50 percent effectiveness for Zostavax.3
    Administrative Errors

    Even among the vaccine’s most ardent supporters, however, the news about Shingrix hasn’t all been positive. In June, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) published a report discussing a significant number of administrative errors and serious injuries associated with the new shingles vaccine.4 Within the first four months of being on the market, the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) received 155 adverse event reports linked to Shingrix.

    Several of the errors were attributable to vaccine administrators confusing the two shingles vaccines, which actually differ in significant ways. Merck’s Zostavax is a live attenuated vaccine (ZVL) that is given once as a single shallow injection, just under the skin (subcutaneous injection). GlaxoSmithKline’s Shingrix is a recombinant vaccine (RZV) that must be reconstituted prior to injection and is administered deeper into the muscle (intramuscular injection). Shingrix is given twice, with the second dose given between two and six months after the first one.

    The reported errors associated with Shingrix included administration via the subcutaneous route, a mistake that usually caused significant injection site reactions including pain, severe itching (pruritis), and redness (erythema). Other errors reported were administering the vaccine to patients younger than 50, giving out the wrong vaccine information sheet (VIS), administering just the vaccine’s novel adjuvant without reconstituting it with the actual vaccine antigen, and mistakenly giving the shingles vaccine to a person who was supposed to get chickenpox (varicella zoster) vaccine.
    New Adjuvant Turbocharges Immune Response

    One of the challenges for manufacturers of inactivated vaccines like Shingrix is that they do not contain a live-virus, which traditionally have provoked stronger immune system responses. The strong immune system response reported for Shingrix is due to one of the new vaccine’s ingredients, QS-21 Stimulon manufactured by Agenus, Inc.

    The novel vaccine adjuvant QS-21 Stimulon is a purified extract from the bark of the Quillaja saponaria vergreen, otherwise known as the soap bark tree.5 QS-21 Stimulon is an “immune potent” adjuvant designed to “turbocharge vaccines by strengthening and broadening immune responses (both T cell and antibody mediated) to a vaccine’s antigens.” The new adjuvant is currently under study for use in immune therapies against cancer, HIV, and malaria.6

    Shingrix vaccine’s novel adjuvant system, AS01B, not only contains QS-21 Stimulon but also MPL (monophosphyoryl lipid a), an immune-stimulating fat. Shingrix ingredients (per dose) include 50 mcg of the QS-21 and 50 mcg of 3-O-desacyl-4’- monophosphoryl lipid A (MPL) from Salmonella minnesota, as well as 50 mcg of its antigen: recombinant glycoprotein E (gE), along with 20 mg of sucrose (as stabilizer), 4.385 mg of sodium chloride, 1 mg of DOPC, 0.54 mg of potassium dihydrogen phosphate, 0.25 mg of cholesterol, 0.160 mg of sodium dihydrogen phosphate dihydrate, 0.15 mg of disodium phosphate anhydrous, 0.116 mg of dipotassium phosphate, and 0.08 mg of polysorbate 80.7
    Severe Side Effects

    Even when it is administered according to protocol, the Shingrix vaccine is very reactive. The vaccine’s side effects are known to be more severe than those associated with Zostavax, but public health officials insist the vaccine’s benefits are worth the risk of “skin rash, joint pain, flu-like symptoms, headaches and fatigue” commonly experienced by those who get it.8 Kathleen Dooling, MD of the CDC’s Division of Viral Diseases admitted that more than 70 percent of patients had pain and, “About one in six people experienced side effects so severe that it actually prevented their normal activities.”

    In fact, the side effects of Shingrix are so severe that the vaccine’s promoters are concerned that many people will not be willing to go back for the second dose of the vaccine.
    Early Warnings of Shingles Epidemic


    After participating in a CDC funded study of the effect of widespread use of chickenpox vaccine in California between 1995 and 2002, researcher Gary Goldman, PhD, published a major paper in 2005 warning that the decline in incidence of chickenpox would lead to an increase in children developing shingles.9

    In 2003, Goldman predicted that “a large-scale increase in shingles incidence would soon become manifest among adults—a group more susceptible to serious complications.”10

    Referring to the “solution” proposed by vaccine manufacturers at the time—to license a booster “shingles” vaccine to substitute for the natural boost in immunity that occurred when people were exposed to wild-type chickenpox in the environment—Goldman said, “This will likely lead to endless disease-and-cure cycles.”
    Questions Remain About the Rising Incidence of Shingles

    The incidence of shingles is much higher than it used to be, and it is being seen in younger people, though there is disagreement about the reasons for the increase. Many scientists have suggested that mass vaccination of children with the varicella zoster (chickenpox) vaccine has reduced the presence of the chickenpox virus in the environment, thereby eliminating the natural immune system boost people used to get from exposure to the virus.12 At one point it was thought to provide 20 years of protection, though more current thinking puts the effect at more like two years.12

    The current mainstream medical message denies that the chickenpox vaccine is responsible for the observed increase in shingles,13 but others suggest that the knowledge has been deliberately suppressed.14

    Clarification: In response to a comment by one of our readers, the word “muzak” in the first paragraph of this article is not misspelled. It was not meant to be “music,” but rather a reference to the background music often played in retail stores, elevators and other public locations.

    I wanted to share the last visit I had to the doctors office. I rarely go, and up to this point I have not been hassled about the fact that I refuse vaccines. I was being seen by a women's health practitioner and she really pressured me. The biggest push was for the Shingrix vaccine for some reason. She claimed that this was a new type of vaccine that is 91 % effective and quite harmless. She went on to remind me what a horrible thing shingles is and as a nurse I should know this. I thought I would look into this "miracle" vaccine and was kind of shocked about the side effects of this thing.

    Having been a working nurse for 30 plus years, I have erred in medication administration. The possibility increases when there are multiple medications being given, when there is a "change" in procedure without adequate practice and when EVER people are involved (ha).

    Quote Several of the errors were attributable to vaccine administrators confusing the two shingles vaccines, which actually differ in significant ways. Merck’s Zostavax is a live attenuated vaccine (ZVL) that is given once as a single shallow injection, just under the skin (subcutaneous injection). GlaxoSmithKline’s Shingrix is a recombinant vaccine (RZV) that must be reconstituted prior to injection and is administered deeper into the muscle (intramuscular injection). Shingrix is given twice, with the second dose given between two and six months after the first one.

    The reported errors associated with Shingrix included administration via the subcutaneous route, a mistake that usually caused significant injection site reactions including pain, severe itching (pruritis), and redness (erythema). Other errors reported were administering the vaccine to patients younger than 50, giving out the wrong vaccine information sheet (VIS), administering just the vaccine’s novel adjuvant without reconstituting it with the actual vaccine antigen, and mistakenly giving the shingles vaccine to a person who was supposed to get chickenpox (varicella zoster) vaccine.
    The whole vaccine "thing" is just a disaster considering the various mistakes even well in tentioned practitioners may make in their CAVALIER hand outs of frighteningly hazardous ingredients. Medical institutions are dangerous and people working in them are often less than vigilant and less than brilliant.

    The ramping up of doses of vaccine by the very nature of human error will lead to confusion and mistakes. Hasty injection and writhing bodies and wasted muscle all can lead to SIRVA. SIRVA leads to shoulder issues.

    Shoulder injury related to vaccine administration (SIRVA) is a preventable occurrence caused by the injection of a vaccine into the shoulder capsule rather than the deltoid muscle. As a result, inflammation of the shoulder structures causes patients to experience pain, a decreased range of motion, and a decreased quality of life.
    IMO we all really MUST never just head out to the allopath without our plan to challenge the autority. We are better off with guard up and informed friend in tow. CERTAINLY we MUST keep our hopistalized babies and all loved ones in our sight and presenting an aggressive stance.

    Sorry to say but this concern is from my very own experience. The dangers of ALL KINDS of errors are rife and even worse probably than the statistics admit.The staff will NOT admit the wrongly applied techniques and mistaken meds, procedures etc. if at all possible. Questions and awareness MUST stop the mistakes before they happen

    Not only do clients need to seek out the detailed facts of the procedures and medications but need to know and to monitor how they are administered. Shattered bones and trauma makes the risk of Allopaths worth while.

    It grieves me that almost every single day I hear the worful tale of how a perosn was given medication that cause terrible effects and disappointment in the "doctor", the "hospital" and also "They just cannot figure out what is wrong so MORE tests". "What I want to say but don't is:

    "WTH do you expect? Why are you handing yourself over to these people? Are you an IDIOT? "

    I feel better now.
