    Quote Dr. Jim Meehan Nails the Message to the Wall: We Need to Change Vaccine Safety Science NOW
    March 8, 2019 at 12:21 am
    An amazing interview. Dr. Meehan was clear and concise in his analysis of the corruption in the vaccine industry. This is someone who should have been at the table on Tuesday, not some 18 year old who thinks he knows something except for the fact that he’s being used.

    Zach: “[The study] came out and it made it sound as if boy this is the nail in
    the coffin [in the vaccine/autism question], what’s your take?”
    Dr. Meehan: “It’s definitely not the nail in the coffin. This is kind of a rehash of some of the the same stuff that’s been coming out of Danish studies for quite a while. In fact there’s a lot of problems with the study. The first one goes back so you know to the point of who funded it…”


    The adjuvants like aluminum are not safe. Merck for instance has a monopoly on the MMR (Merck steps up measles vaccine production amid increased US demand
    PUBLISHED WED, MAY 1 2019 • 4:39 PM EDT
    )and there is protection to them for any unintended consequences. There is NO incentive to even look for other adjuvants. IF there was no protection and the company had to bear the burden if sued for mal effects, there would at least be incentive to make sure the vaccines are safe.

    This is not even about if vaccines are effective in the larger picture.

    In light of the discovery of Autoimmune Syndrome Induced by Adjuvants, or ASIA, Vaccines and Autoimmunity explores the role of adjuvants – specifically aluminum in different vaccines – and how they can induce diverse autoimmune clinical manifestations in genetically prone individuals.

    Vaccines and Autoimmunity is divided into three sections; the first contextualizes the role of adjuvants in the framework of autoimmunity, covering the mechanism of action of adjuvants, experimental models of adjuvant induced autoimmune diseases, infections as adjuvants, the Gulf War Syndrome, sick-building syndrome (SBS), safe vaccines, toll-like receptors, TLRS in vaccines, pesticides as adjuvants, oil as adjuvant, mercury, aluminum and autoimmunity. The following section reviews literature on vaccines that have induced autoimmune conditions such as MMR and HBV, among others. The final section covers diseases in which vaccines were known to be the solicitor – for instance, systemic lupus erythematosus – and whether it can be induced by vaccines for MMR, HBV, HCV, and others.

    Edited by leaders in the field, Vaccines and Autoimmunity is an invaluable resource for advanced students and researchers working in pathogenic and epidemiological studies.

    The chilling of individual rights is moving along aided by continuing ignorance and hysterical fears of communicable diseases of which measles is a ludicrous example of danger.

    California SB 277 eliminated religious and philosophical exemptions for vaccination making it mandatory except for medical exemptions. The former right to "just say no" to vaccination was easier than getting a medical exemption. When that bill went into effect, parents who have children with medical problems after vaccination did what they should... they went to an medical provider and obtained a medical exemption and therefore the number of medical exemptions increased.

    Now SB276 is moving along despite huge protests from citizens and even cogent questioning by those in the assembly. But IMO it is transparent that this is a timely opportunity

    One notices two things, the schism between the allopathic medical versus chiropractic communities in Richard Pan's allegations that exemptions were "sold" (mentioning chiropractors by title in the past as sources of too many exemptions).

    Also, he trumpeted the increase in medical exemptions and the numbers of medical exemptions were not that huge, far from justifying this draconian move to eviscerate the authority of individual medical practitioners.

    California is a bell weather state and IMO we should be aware that this is the beginning of a swelling wave.

    Though it is over reaching, the FDA has already threatened federal mandates if states continue "lax laws"

    Quote SB 276: California doesn’t trust its own Medical Doctors

    CORTE MADERA, Calif., April 8, 2019 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Dr. Don Harte, noted chiropractic activist, former Libertarian State Senate candidate, issues a dire warning against SB 276, which will eliminate the medical exemption for vaccination. “This is political-medical terrorism of parents and children.”

    Dr. Don Harte
    “California, already, has the dubious distinction of being the second state to eliminate the religious exemption for vaccination (after Mississippi), with the infamous SB 277, of 2015,” according to Dr. Harte. “Now, California seeks to throttle the judgement of individual medical doctors for individual patients. You thought that they would stop at dismissing the judgement of parents for their own children?”

    Dr. Harte goes on… “The bill is proposed by State Sen. Dr. Richard Pan, vaccine extremist. Sen. Pan has already, successfully, interfered with parental rights and informed consent by his previously passed bills, AB2109 and SB 277. These bills have essentially destroyed any rights of parents to choose not to vaccinate, or fully vaccinate, their children. But he wants more. Some may think that this is a furtherance of public health. I am sure that Dr. Pan knows that SB 276 is an extension of state power, essentially Big Brother in a White Coat.”

    “A Kaiser publication reported that, according to Director Karen Smith, the California Department of Public Health is conducting a ‘review of schools’ where the number of vaccine exemptions appears ‘biologically unlikely,’” Dr. Harte notes. “How Orwellian!” That publication reports that “questionable exemptions will be reported to the Medical Board.”

    Dr. Harte says: “The very willing, pharmaceutical advertising-laden news media are happy to report instances of alleged abuse of the medical exemption, creating their own fake news. Medical doctors who are willing to write these exemptions are portrayed as foolish, at best, and criminal, at worst.”

    He goes on: “There have already been certain doctors who have been attacked and persecuted by the press and the medical board. An example is a headline of the ‘Medical Press’: ‘In California, some doctors sell ‘medical exemptions’ for kids’ vaccinations,’ as if the vaccine-shooting docs work for free.” He continues, “I have seen this very type of “money-hungry’ libel many times, against chiropractors. Considering that Medicine sucks up one-fifth of the American economy, and the very tiny minority of pediatricians who stand up to do the right thing, to make this argument, well, it’s a lot of nerve and not so much brain.”

    According to CBS Channel 13 in Sacramento, Dr. Pan have the nerve to say “There’s a very small number of physicians who have betrayed their professional oath. I think they’re monetizing their license.” Dr. Harte says that it is just the opposite: “It is the pediatricians who push vaccines who are betraying their professional oath, whether those vaccines are ‘accepted’ by the Establishment, or not. There is no question that each vaccine contains a variety of neuro- and immunotoxins, and that vaccination, as a process, subverts normal immune processes.” Dr. Harte declares, “I question the ethics and the competency of the pediatricians who, regularly, perform serial vaccination, causing untold harm. Have they forgotten that part of the Hippocratic Oath, ‘First, do no harm?’”

    Dr. Harte explains, “A non-fake news/real science headline would be ‘In California, pediatricians make huge profits selling vaccines and the office visits required, plus even bigger profits off of all the serious illnesses that result from vaccinations. Now they seek to attack their colleagues who choose to do the right thing.’”

    “Yes, there should be medical exemptions for vaccination,” Dr. Harte declares. “If pediatricians are going to go with science, and truly be for the children whom they are supposed to serve, 100 percent of children should be exempted. Vaccines are a clear and present danger to the health of children. The State of California and any other jurisdiction or agency who mandates compulsory vaccination is a clear and present danger to liberty.”

    Editorial in Mountain Democrat
    PLACERVILLE, CALIFORNIA
    Quote Senate Bill 276 not needed
    Senate Bill 276 is unnecessary and represents dangerous government intervention into healthcare decisions.

    The proposed bill would require a state public health officer or their designee to approve or deny any vaccine medical exemption request submitted by a physician or surgeon. It also requires the creation of database to track individual medical exemptions requests and decisions.

    Sen. Richard Pan, chair of the Assembly Health Committee, has used data from the Kindergarten Immunization Assessment Report to justify the need for this bill, stating, “Medical exemptions have more than tripled since the passage of SB 277.” Sen. Pan also states, “A very small percentage of the population, less than 1 percent, suffers from qualifying medical condition such as a severe allergic reaction to a vaccine component that would lead to the granting of medical exemption.”

    According to the Kindergarten Immunization Assessment Report, which is being referenced by Sen. Pan, “Compared to 2016-17 in 2017-18, the proportion of kindergarteners reported as having permanent medical exemptions increased from 0.5 percent to 0.7 percent.” Both numbers represent less than 1 percent of the population; yes, that same 1 percent that Sen. Pan said could suffer from a severe allergic reaction to a vaccine component.

    The Kindergarten Immunization Assessment requires all public and private schools to report the immunization status of kindergarten students; however, schools with multi-year kindergarten programs or transitional kindergarten are required to list student younger than kindergarten age on their assessment. The result is that some students are reported for multiple years, including students with medical exemptions.

    Kris Calvin of the American Academy of Pediatrics, California, says SB 276 is a “reasonable and urgently needed measure.” Yet, the proportion of students reported to have received all required vaccines is 95.1 percent, the second highest since the 2001-02 school year.

    The data simply does not support an urgent need for SB 276, and it is far from reasonable that a government official should make decisions for the most vulnerable children in our communities.
    Quote FDA chief: Federal government might step in if states don’t change lax vaccine laws
    FEBRUARY 20, 2019,

    The head of the US Food and Drug Administration says that if states don’t require more schoolchildren to get vaccinated, the federal government might have to step in.

    Nearly all states allow children to attend school even if their parents opt out of vaccines. These vaccine exemptions are especially popular in Washington state, where a measles outbreak started last month that has now sickened at least 67 people in four states. And New York has been working to contain its largest outbreak in decades, which began in October and has sickened more than 200 people.

    “Some states are engaging in such wide exemptions that they’re creating the opportunity for outbreaks on a scale that is going to have national implications,” FDA Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb said Tuesday in an interview with CNN.

    If “certain states continue down the path that they’re on, I think they’re going to force the hand of the federal health agencies,” he added.

    Gottlieb’s suggestion about the federal government and vaccines was first reported by Axios.

    The commissioner was vague on when he thought the federal government should take action and what exactly that action should be. “You could mandate certain rules about what is and isn’t permissible when it comes to allowing people to have exemptions,” he said.

    He said he hoped that the measles outbreak would make state officials realize that they needed to get stricter on exemptions.

    Forty-seven states allow parents to opt out of childhood vaccines for religious reasons. Of those, 17, including Washington, allow parents to opt out because they feel that vaccines violate their personal or philosophical beliefs.

    The American Medical Association, the American Academy of Pediatrics and other medical groups have long said that states should get rid of all exemptions except when a vaccine would cause medical harm to a child.

    Gottlieb said he is “deeply skeptical” of all exemptions except medical ones.

    Reaction to Gottlieb’s statements was mixed.

    “This is fantastic news,” said Dr. Adam Ratner, director of the Division of Pediatric Infectious Diseases at Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone. “I think some of the states may need that kind of push.”

    Bill Zedler, a Republican Texas state representative, disagrees.

    “It’s a horrible idea,” said Zedler, who has fought efforts to get rid of religious and personal exemptions in his state.

    “That’s why we have different laws in every state: so the citizens of that state can decide how they want to run things,” he added.

    Dr. Richard Pan, a pediatrician and state senator in California, said that although he welcomed national leadership on this issue, he was concerned about the legality of the federal government moving into an area that has been controlled by state laws.

    “Traditionally, school entry requirements have been the role of the states, so there might be a constitutional challenge if the federal government tried to mandate by law those school requirements,” he said.

    Pan, who four years ago successfully led an effort to get rid of personal and religious vaccine exemptions in his state, said he thought national leaders might take a different approach than what Gottlieb suggests to increase vaccination rates.

    On Tuesday, he sent a letter to US Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams to ramp up efforts to address parents who are hesitant to vaccinate their children.

    “As our nation’s doctor, I urge you to issue a call to action on vaccine hesitancy in the United States and make this crisis a public health priority,” Pan wrote.

    Pan warned Adams about campaigns on social media to scare parents away from vaccinations.

    “Our nation requires your leadership to stop this attack on our nation’s health by addressing the spread of vaccine misinformation causing unwarranted vaccine hesitancy,” he wrote.

    In a statement to CNN, Adams said he has “consistently championed for the use of vaccinations.”

    He added that “the data tells us that that states with broader exemption laws have higher numbers of unvaccinated residents, which predisposes them to outbreaks of vaccine preventable diseases like measles.”

    Quote Three Profoundly-important, Science-based Articles from an Indian Asian Vaccine Scholar with Observations on the US sanctioned “Vaccine Holocaust of Newborns, Infants and Children”

    Gary Kohls
    Thursday May. 2nd, 2019


    It needs to be said that the parents of over-vaccinated newborns, infants and children have been thoroughly-indoctrinated to be obedient to any number of authority figures and therefore frequently allow – without hesitation and without doing their own research – the administration of invasive procedures such as multiple vaccines being injected simultaneously into the tiny muscles of their children (combinations of which have never been proven to be safe).

    Overwhelmingly, that parental consent is not “informed consent” as required by law. Uninformed consent is therefore often given without the parents being properly informed of the potential hazards, short or long-term. Therefore their children are at high risk of becoming sickened – sooner or later - with vaccine toxin-induced illnesses.

    It is important that all parents or guardians of infants and children read the following information carefully and studiously before consenting to future vaccination.

    CDC Childhood Vaccine Schedule Linked to Neurological Disorders and Autism

    The 2017 US CDC (Centre for Disease CREATION and PROMOTION) vaccine schedule requires U.S. children from birth to age 6 to receive 50 doses of 14 vaccines, many of which contain both neurotoxic aluminium and mercury (thimerosal)!
    Infants in the US are exposed from birth to age 2, to 24 vaccine doses, combining 8-in-1 vaccines to be given to infants 2, 4, and 6 months in a single visit! Babies receive 36 vaccine doses before they are 18 months old!

    This is Criminal Insanity & State-Sanctioned Medical Murder of Newborns, Infants And Children!

    In 1985, the autism prevalence rate in the US was 1 in 2,500; in 1995 it was 1 in 500; In 2014 it was 1 in 45! In children aged 3 to 17, the autism prevalence rate increased by 80% from 2011-2013! At this rate, it is predicted that 1 out of 2 children in the US will have autism by 2030!
    A report by EPA scientists Timing of Increased Autism Disorder Cumulative Incidence analyzed the cumulative incidence of autistic disorder during a 10-year period (1987–1996) pinpointed a sharp “changepoint” year (1988) when the incidence of autism sharply increased. The “changepoint” year is concomitant with the year childhood vaccination schedules expanded.

    Causal Link Between Mercury
    (Thimerosal) Contained in Vaccines,
    Neurological Disorders and Autism

    Scientific research and CDC internal documents on the toxicity of mercury (thimerosal) in vaccines reveal exposure to thimerosal during the first month of life increased the relative risk of autism by 7.6 (760%), 1.8 (180%) increased relative risk for a neurodevelopmental disorder; 2.1 (210%) relative risk for speech disorder; and 5-fold (500%) increased relative risk for a nonorganic sleep disorder.

    The CDC also suppressed the original findings of another of its own studies that found a 340% (3.6) relative increased risk of autism for African American male babies following MMR vaccination in accordance with the CDC-recommended Childhood Vaccination Schedule.
    The alarming and damning scientific evidence, documents that infants exposed to vaccines laced with thimerosal during the first month of life are at alarmingly high increased the relative risk of serious harm. “The data on its toxicity (shows) it can cause neurologic and renal toxicity, including death,” writes Dr. Richard Johnston, M.D., an immunologist and pediatrician from the University of Colorado.

    Dr. Verstraeten also said: “what I will present to you is the study that nobody thought we should do.” The study categorized the cumulative effect of thimerosal-containing vaccines administered to infants after one month of life and assessed the subsequent risk of degenerative and developmental neurologic disorders, and renal disorders before the age of six. Dr. Verstraeten stated that ALL of these relative risks were statistically significant.

    Source: http://ahrp.org/betrayal-of-public-t...nce-falsified/
    Additional published peer-reviewed studies that found a causal link between childhood vaccines containing mercury (Thimerosal) and neurological disorders including autism.

    Synergistic Toxicity of Aluminium
    & Thimerosal in Vaccines

    Dr. Boyd Haley, former professor of medicinal chemistry and chairman of the chemistry department at the University of Kentucky, published a study in which he investigated the effect of combining aluminum hydroxide with thimerosal. In this study, cultured neurons showed no significant cell death six hours after they were exposed to just aluminum; more than 90% survived. Thimerosal alone also caused few neurons to die after six hours of exposure. Again, more than 90% survived. However, when cultured neurons were exposed to aluminum and thimerosal, only about 40% survived after six hours, clearly demonstrating synergistic toxicity (Figure 3). Source: http://www.jpands.org/vol21no4/miller.pdf

    As Neil Miller writes:
    ”Millions of children every year are injected with vaccines containing mercury and aluminum despite well-established experimental evidence of the potential for additive or synergistic toxicity when an organism is exposed to two or more toxic metals.
    Dr. Haley’s study in which cultured neurons died at an accelerated rate following concurrent exposure to aluminum and thimerosal provides evidence of an enhanced detrimental effect. In addition, aluminum toxicity levels published by FDA indicate that two-month-old babies who are vaccinated according to CDC guidelines may be receiving quantities of aluminum that are significantly higher than safety levels.”

    Statements from Prominent & Eminent Medical Doctors & Scientists on the Toxicity of Aluminium in Childhood Vaccines:
    Conclusion:
    Both neurotoxic aluminium and mercury (thimerosal) contained in multiple doses of childhood vaccines as well as the CDC vaccine schedule cause severe and permanent neurological disorders including autism in newborns, infants and children!
    When will the US sanctioned Vaccine Holocaust of newborns, infants and children end?

    Vaccines Cause Brain Injuries,
    Neurological Disorders and Autism

    Vaccines Trigger a “Cytokine Storm”
    of the Immune System, Leading to
    Severe and Permanent Neurological
    Disorders, Brain Injuries and Autism.

    com/2018/07/vaccines-cause-brain-
    injuries-including.html

    As vaccinepapers.org writes:

    The term “immune activation” describes the activation of the cellular components of the immune system. The developing brain can be injured by immune activation, with life-long consequences (Meyer 2009, Deverman 2009, Estes 2016, neusel 2014, Careaga 2017, Meyer 2014).
    Immune activation injury is linked to autism, schizophrenia, depression and other mental illnesses or neurodevelopmental disorders. Immune activation effects on the brain are mediated by immune system signaling molecules, especially cytokines (Estes 2016, Meyer 2014, Smith 2007, Choi 2016, Pineda 2013).

    Human brain development is controlled by immune-system signals (i.e. “cytokines”). Activation of the immune system during brain development causes disruptions in these signals, resulting in permanent brain injury. The injury manifests as autism, schizophrenia and other mental illnesses. Adverse vaccine reactions are proven to stimulate a cytokine (interleukin-6) proven to cause autism.

    In the maternal immune activation experiments, inflammatory signaling and some cytokines (e.g. IL-6) traverse the placenta into the fetus. Consequently, immune activation in the mother causes immune activation and elevated cytokines in the fetus, and in the fetal brain (Oskvig 2012, Ghiani 2011).
    Diverse evidence indicates that the brain can be adversely affected by postnatal immune activation. Postnatal immune activation experiments, human case reports, and consideration of brain development timelines suggest that the human brain is vulnerable to immune activation injury for years after birth.

    Postnatal immune activation can have adverse neurological effects, including increased seizure susceptibility (Chen 2013,Galic 2008), learning and memory deficits (Harre 2008), and an increase in excitatory synapse formation (Shen 2016). Seizure disorders, learning and memory dysfunction, and elevated excitatory signaling are associated with autism.

    The timing of brain development processes in humans supports the idea that the human brain is vulnerable to immune activation and cytokines in the first few years after birth, when vaccines are administered. Disruption of synaptogenesis by vaccine induced immune activation is a particular concern. The accumulating evidence indicates that vaccine-induced immune activation, and aluminum adjuvants in particular, may cause mental illnesses and neurodevelopmental disorders, including autism.

    Acute Flaccid Myelitis (AFM):
    A “Mysterious” Paralyzing Illness
    Caused by Enteroviruses or by
    Neurotoxic Vaccines ?

    By Arya Vrilya - Tuesday, October 23, 2018

    https://yajnacentre.blogspot.com/201...caused-by.html
    A new “unknown” and “mysterious” paralyzing neurological illness named Acute Flaccid Myelitis (AFM) has been paralyzing young children across the US and Canada since 2014. According to the US CDC, there have been 368 registered cases of AFM since 2014; 149 cases were registered in 2016 alone (the highest number of cases in any single year) and 68 cases have been reported so far in 2018.

    “AFM is a rare, but serious condition that affects the nervous system. It specifically affects the area of spinal cord called gray matter and causes muscles and reflexes to become weak. In most cases, the patient’s arms or legs become weak, similar to the results of infection with polio. In some cases, patients recover quickly. In other cases, patients remain paralyzed. There is a lot we don’t know about AFM, and I am frustrated that despite all of our efforts, we haven’t been able to identify the cause of this mystery illness,” said Dr. Nancy Messonnier, director of the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases.

    According to the Public Health Agency of Canada, there were fewer than five cases reported in Canada between January and August 2018. However, over the last few weeks, more than 20 additional cases were alarmingly reported in Canada including 6 in Montréal, Québec.
    In Septembre 2018, a four-year old Canadian girl from Québec (Geneviève Blais, pictured above) was diagnosed with AFM in Québec. Her treating physician Dr. Christos Karatzios, a Pediatric Infectious Diseases Specialist at Montréal Children’s Hospital briefly explained the “mysterious” illness of his patient in the following television interviews:
    Listen to the doctor’s TV interview in
    English
    In response to a question on his FB page about this “mysterious” paralyzing neurological illness, Dr. Karatzios wrote:
    “We are actually uncertain what exactly is causing it, but we suspect it to be an enterovirus - similar to polio virus (that is also an enterovirus but has been pretty much eradicated because of vaccination) We suspect enterovirus D68 or 71. We have not been able to easily isolate it from the spinal fluid and so we can only make an association when we isolate it in saliva or stool. Very similar clinical symptoms to polio but can be caught like a cold.”

    In other words, there is no conclusive scientific evidence to confirm a causal relationship between the “suspected” enterovirus D68 or 71 and the “mysterious” crippling neurological illness (AFM) that is causing myelitis paralysis in young children.

    Enteroviruses or Neurotoxic Vaccines
    Causing Myelitis Paralysis ?

    I, in turn, asked Dr. Karatzios whether this new “mysterious” paralyzing neurological illness could be caused by a long list of mandatory or recommended vaccines administered to newborns, infants and children that contain neurotoxic mercury (thimerosal) and/or aluminium which are extremely neurotoxic for the central nervous system and the developing brain of newborns, infants and children ?

    In fact, several published scientific studies have found a causal relationship between vaccines that contain mercury and/or aluminium and neurological disorders in children and more specifically between vaccines and transverse myelitis. Moreover, the vaccines inserts CLEARLY list transverse myelitis as an adverse “side effect” of vaccines, as the following insightful paper and articles reveal:

    Polio Vaccines and Acute Flaccid
    Myelitis (AFM)

    Acute Flaccid Myelitis (AFM) is also an adverse “side effect” of the polio vaccine. In fact, over 47,500 children in India were paralyzed after being injected with the polio vaccine a few years ago. AFM, also known as Acute Flaccid Paralysis (AFP) or non-polio AFP (NPAFP), has been reported since 2014 as a “mysterious polio-like illness”.

    In a paper published in the Indian Journal of Medical Ethics in 2012, Neetu Vashisht, MD and Jacob Puliya, MD wrote: “Clinically indistinguishable from polio paralysis but twice as deadly, the incidence of NPAFP was directly proportional to doses of oral polio vaccine received.”
    Moreover, In 1992 the CDC publicly admitted that every case of poliomyelitis paralysis in the US since the early 1960’s was CAUSED by the oral polio vaccine (OPV) used in the US from the early 1960’s to 2000!
    And as far back as 1976, Dr Salk publicly admitted under testimony that the OPV used in the US from the early 1960’s to 2000 was “the principal if not the sole cause” of all poliomyelitis paralysis cases in the US since 1961.
    Dr Karatzios, however, categorically denies that vaccines could be causing transverse myelitis in children by arguing that patients that he diagnosed with AFM had not been vaccinated 2 months prior to contracting the “mysterious” paralyzing illness.
    In response, I argued that most neurological vaccine injuries often manifest several months or years after the administration of the vaccine; moreover, several published studies cited in the linked articles above have found a causal link between vaccine and transverse myelitis, including AFM.
    And last but not least, the vaccines package inserts CLEARLY list transverse myelitis as an adverse “side effect” of several vaccines administered to children and adults alike.

    Note: Dr. Karatzios has deleted both his FB post and our correspondence exchanged on his FB page.

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

    I have posted more than enough to look at and maybe it may help some to decide that activism in this area is important? IMO facts show that unlike other issues where we can at least act to avoid the substances we are concerned about, MANDATORY takes what may be harmful to a totally new and insufferable level.

    It is a mandated law that can keep us out of public places, prevent us from having a driver's license, keep us from work, school and on and on [for those eligible I see eventual loss of medicare (maybe insurance all together?), social security, all welfare checks, loss of literal liberty with maybe jail time].

    People seem happy to see "Antivaxxers" as a dangerous criminal conspiracy.

    Fund raising for Vaxxed II is slated to be banned form indiegogo

    Quote Indiegogo Will Ban Anti-Vaccine Fundraisers As Measles Cases Surge To A Record Level
    A new policy will bar fundraisers that make health claims without scientific backing, BuzzFeed News has learned.
    Claudia Koerner
    BuzzFeed News Reporter
    April 26, 2019



    Crowdfunding site Indiegogo will no longer allow anti-vaccine fundraisers or any projects making health claims that do not have a scientific backing, the company said Friday.

    The move comes after anti-vaccine advocates raised $86,543 for a documentary based on the false claim that vaccines cause autism. The prospective makers of Vaxxed II: The People's Truth will still get their cash, minus the site's 5% fee, but Indiegogo is working on a new policy that would keep similar anti-vaccine projects off the platform in the future, a company spokesperson told BuzzFeed News Friday.

    The policy has not yet been finalized, and the spokesperson did not say when it was expected to take effect.

    The move comes as the US records its worst year for measles since the disease was declared eradicated in 2000. Vaccination rates across the country as a whole have remained high, the CDC has said, but in some communities, parents have refused to vaccinate their children largely because of misinformation claiming vaccines are dangerous. Exposure to the measles virus — often from a person who has traveled overseas — can quickly turn into an outbreak when members of the public are unvaccinated.

    Public health officials are struggling to control the outbreaks, which experts believe will become a new normal. Measles is one of the most contagious infectious diseases, and it can cause severe complications or even death.

    And though vaccines have repeatedly been found to be safe and effective, parents' fears about risks continue to be stoked by anti-vaccine advocates and bogus science via books, videos, and social media. GoFundMe last month announced it was banning fundraisers for anti-vaccine misinformation campaigns, and Facebook and YouTube have taken steps against promoting anti-vaccine content to users.

    The documentary Vaxxed, directed by discredited British doctor Andrew Wakefield, was removed from Amazon Prime Video as well as library media streaming service Hoopla.

    Two producers of the 2016 film have been working to create its follow-up, featuring testimonials from parents who said their children were irreparably harmed by vaccines.

    "See the TRUTH that the Government, Doctors, and Big Pharma never wanted you to know," the Indiegogo fundraising page said.

    While the fundraiser did not violate existing policies on untruthful campaigns, which focus on campaigns that mislead and defraud donors, Indiegogo never promoted it on its site, the company spokesperson said.

    In the Vaxxed II fundraiser, executive directors Polly Tommey and Brian Burrowes are clear about the pushback the original documentary received and its ban from platforms and screenings, including the Tribeca Film Festival, which they derided as censorship by powerful interests.

    "You can’t silence the truth, the parents like myself who vaccinated and now have brain damaged adults to look after for life because we DID vaccinate will never be silenced," Tommey told BuzzFeed News in an email. "Vaxxed 2 is even more powerful than the first film, The People’s Truth. Censorship has a horrid way of backfiring on those implementing."
    I am really quite flabbergasted that people, who IMO should be aware of this sliding towards (what feels to me like) total loss of autonomy, are sounding already zombified..."safe and effective", "Measles OMG".

    This is while passively tolerating obvious declines in health. There is some sort of social virus that is willing to accept radical "neurodiversity" as a new normal, chronic illness and plain old loss of say so.

    Of course the ones who suffer should not be stigmatized. Unfortunately I have little trust that euthanasia ISN'T a few steps ahead for the ones who will need constant care.

    Now there are people who with vehemence wildly attack anyone who might after deeply thinking and reason refuse. There are also so many ignorant about the fact that vaccinated people are not actually immune to the diseases. Here is one nurse's family (all vaccinated) experience with mumps....



    Sign petitions, learn information and try to speak to the legislators is all I can think politically to do at this point. If I do these things, I may still face mandatory vaccination? What then? Pick up a gun? I don't think so (personally).

    I am not sure what to do next. Maybe I will post more here but I feel as though I have flooded this thread and it may take a few weeks for any one with a life to sift.

    I am noticing that we are DEFINITELY being poised to police ourselves. We are being positioned to silence all dissenting views whenever we can be convinced that the right of an individual in any way conflicts with the official policy of what the "good of the whole" requires. It matters not a bit if this is not backed by scientific validity or even common sense.

    People have mentioned Roe V Wade and rights over the body. I don't know enough and interestingly, there is very little to find online (Hummm). But maybe there is something there.

    In the mean time, I am looking into Zack Bush and detoxifying for my friends' children (those who think there may be something valuable... some look at me like I am devilish.)

    In Ontario Canada main stream media says medical professionals are devilish if they have a different professional opinion....

    Quote Three senior members of the council that regulates Ontario chiropractors have made anti-vaccination statements
    Presented with the information, Ontario's Ministry of Health said it will take no action because chiropractic is a self-regulated health profession
    Three senior members of the council that regulates Ontario chiropractors have made anti-vaccination statements
    Presented with the information, Ontario's Ministry of Health said it will take no action because chiropractic is a self-regulated health profession

    Three senior members of the professional organization that regulates Ontario’s chiropractors have espoused or endorsed anti-vaccine views, the National Post has learned.

    Drs. Elizabeth Anderson-Peacock, Peter Amlinger and Clifford Hardick, all members of the council of the College of Chiropractors of Ontario (CCO), have each written online posts, endorsed anti-vaccine books and documentaries or have made statements that encourage the notion that vaccination is dangerous.

    Anderson-Peacock is the the current vice-president of the CCO. Both Amlinger and Hardick are past presidents. Their anti-vaccination endorsements, writings and appearances stand in contrast to the CCO’s own position on vaccination, which states that “immunizations and vaccinations are outside the scope of chiropractic practice” and any discussions about them with patients must be “accurate, professional and balanced.”

    Ontario’s mandatory class for parents seeking vaccine exemptions has ‘zero conversions’
    Chiropractors are one of the largest primary-contact health care professions in the country. About 4.5 million Canadians visit the country’s 9,000 licensed chiropractors each year. A 2018 Health Canada survey found that 84 per cent of parents cited health care professionals as their primary source of information on vaccinations.

    In response to questions from the Post, Anderson-Peacock denied she endorsed “any ‘anti-vaccination’ position.” Amlinger declined to say whether he believes vaccines are safe and effective, saying only that he believes vaccination is “a public health issue.” Both Amlinger and Anderson-Peacock said their personal opinions were separate from their duties with the CCO. Hardick did not respond to a request for comment.

    NDP health critic France Gelinas, shown at a press conference in Sudbury, Ont. on November 27, 2018, is calling on the Ontario government to investigate the College of Chiropractors of Ontario. John Lappa /Postmedia Network
    The revelation comes amid an outbreak of measles in Ontario and B.C. and a renewed vaccination campaign by Ontario’s Ministry of Health. Presented with the information, the ministry told the Post it will take no action as chiropractic is a self-regulated health profession. Ontario NDP health critic France Gélinas, meanwhile, responded to the information with a call for the ministry to launch an immediate investigation of the entire CCO. “The minister has to step in right now,” she told the Post. “The college as a whole has to be held accountable. The college failed in its basic function to protect the public.”

    The CCO has never taken an official position against vaccination. When the Post contacted the CCO for comment, it received a response that did not address the specific problems addressed in the story. However, less than 24 hours later the CCO issued an advisory in which it stated: “As part of its role to protect the public interest, the College of Chiropractors of Ontario (CCO) recognizes that vaccinations, as mandated in the Province of Ontario, provide a safe and effective means to protect individuals from infectious diseases.”

    It also said the council “will be reviewing Standard of Practice S-001: Chiropractic Scope of Practice and some amendments are anticipated in making the standard more explicit that members not conduct seminars on vaccination or publish information on vaccination on their websites or social media accounts.”

    “I would be concerned about any health care professional who is providing their patients with vaccine information that does not align with the peer-reviewed scientific evidence and the recommendations of Canada’s National Advisory Committee on Immunization,” said Dr. Julie Bettinger, a professor in the Vaccine Evaluation Centre at the University of British Columbia.

    I do not endorse any 'anti-vaccination' position. Rather, I personally believe individuals should obtain informed-consent whenever receiving treatment of any kind from the appropriate provider.


    Anderson-Peacock has endorsed an anti-vaccine book, Immunization: History, Ethics, Law and Health by Catherine Diodati. In the book, Diodati writes, “All vaccines are capable of causing disease and death … some vaccines appear to render people more susceptible to disease.” The appendix references an array of anti-vaccination groups and organizations.

    In a review on Amazon, Anderson-Peacock wrote: “A must read for those who wish to be aware, responsible and informed … especially parents and physicians prior to injection.”

    She also offered online praise for the documentary Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe. The film is directed by Andrew Wakefield and is produced by prominent anti-vaccination activist, Del Bigtree. Wakefield is a disgraced former British doctor who was the lead author of a fraudulent research paper that linked the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine to autism. The documentary claims the Centers for Disease Control in the U.S. covered up a purported link between the MMR vaccine and autism.

    On Facebook, Anderson-Peacock wrote: “It’s an awesome movie. Saw it yesterday in Atlanta with a q and a afterwards with the producer and one mom featured, Polly. They asked the audience please stand if you have anyone in your family, not friends but family who has autism and half the audience stood. The newest projected stat is that if the rates continue as is will be 1 in 2 body will have a DC of autism by 2023.”

    She was also a guest on the Healthy Alternatives to Vaccination podcast around late 2016 — though her appearance on the podcast is no longer online — and has appeared as a guest speaker at conferences organized by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA). On its website the ICPA claims that current evidence suggests mercury in vaccines causes autism, and past ICPA conferences have featured Wakefield, Bigtree and Barbara Loe Fisher, an anti-vaccine advocate and the co-founder and president of the National Vaccine Information Center, which has sponsored ICPA events.

    In a statement emailed to the Post, Anderson-Peacock said, “I stand with the policies of our regulatory college in the interest of public health. I stand with public health initiatives. Period.”

    In a further statement provided via her lawyer, she added: “I do not endorse any ‘anti-vaccination’ position. Rather, I personally believe individuals should obtain informed-consent whenever receiving treatment of any kind from the appropriate provider. My personal opinions are completely separate from the professional obligations I uphold as a chiropractor; and completely separate from my chiropractic practice, which is also aligned with my professional obligations.”

    Anderson-Peacock did not explain her endorsements, appearances or associations.

    Amlinger, a former CCO president, has also been outspoken online about vaccination.

    A 2015 post on the Amlinger Family Chiropractic Facebook page encouraged patients to get a chiropractic adjustment instead of a flu shot, claiming, mercury and aluminium in the shots may increase the chances of Alzheimer’s. Amlinger also wrote a piece for the Justine Blainey Wellness Centre’s website last year in which he discussed a document that claims pharmaceutical companies are colluding with health authorities to hide the “multiple dangers associated with vaccines.”

    When I became aware that there was an article with my name on it on another person’s website, I acted to have it removed immediately

    Dr. Peter Amlinger

    Amlinger wrote: “Perhaps it is time more people start taking fewer drugs and start seeing a chiropractor on a regular basis. It is time for humanity to wake up and stop blindly poisoning themselves.”

    While the statements are no longer available online, the Post had obtained screenshots and recovered archived versions of them after their disappearance.

    Asked about the posts, Amlinger said, “When I became aware of both the Facebook post, which was made by a former associate, I removed it immediately. When I became aware that there was an article with my name on it on another person’s website, I acted to have it removed immediately.

    “I believe that vaccination is a public health issue. I believe the public is entitled to a robust informed consent process for any type of care they are entertaining.” Amlinger also said he “was commenting in my personal capacity and not in my capacity as a CCO council member.”

    In recent speeches, meanwhile, Hardick has praised a chiropractor who drove around town in a hearse with a sign featuring a hypodermic needle dripping blood and the slogan, “Drugs Kill — Whether Pushed or Prescribed!” Hardick has also been a speaker at the California-based chiropractic conference Cal Jam and has appeared on Cal Jam podcasts. This year Cal Jam features appearances by anti-vaccine advocate Bigtree and Dr. James Chestnut, a B.C.- based chiropractor who questions the legitimacy of the data behind widespread public flu vaccination.

    Hardick did not vaccinate his son, B.J. Hardick, himself a high-profile chiropractor who has expressed concern online about mercury in vaccines. Clifford Hardick did not respond to the Post’s request for comment.

    Timothy Caulfield, a University of Alberta professor and author of The Vaccination Picture, said these kinds of postings and comments don’t help the public.

    “This is tremendously frustrating — but, unfortunately, not terribly surprising. There is a history of anti-vaxx rhetoric among the chiropractic community. Despite recent efforts to push the profession toward a more science-based approach, this harmful noise persists.”

    Dr. Murray Katz, a Montreal-based physician and longtime critic of chiropractic says confusing the public about vaccination must stop. “This is dangerous, irresponsible and clearly shows they and the board which accepted them should all be replaced by the Minister of Health, who should impose a scientific standard on the profession.”

    Like opposition critic Gélinas, Caulfield says the situation in the CCO demands that the Ontario government investigate.

    “These are individuals involved in the governance of the chiropractic profession,” he said. “Can people who embrace pseudoscience weed out pseudoscience? Nope. Clearly action is needed.”

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

    Brian Hooker is interviewed here and talks about Poland which has 100% mandatory vaccination with fines $12,000 per child for resistance. He reports that the model in Poland is where the US is headed if allowed.

    As with all who dare to question main stream vaccine propaganda, he is painted as a dangerous disruptor of health when he is actually providing sound science.

    Brian Hooker discusses the Lazarus report that the CDC has tried to bury.



    The Lazarus report referenced in interview

    Quote Mandatory Vaccination – The Poland Experience By Dr. Brian Hooker
    Brian S. Hooker, PH.D., P.E.
    May 2, 2019


    I recently was invited to speak at a Sejm (Poland’s lower house of Parliament) briefing on mandatory vaccination and vaccine injury by Mr. Pawel Skutecki, a deputy in the Sejm. Many citizens of Poland are concerned about the restrictions that are in place on medical and personal rights exemptions and are seeking to change the laws governing vaccine mandates. My other hosts for the trip were Ms. Justyna Socha, Mr. Piotr Jawornik, and Mr. Arkadiusz Tetela.

    Justyna and Piotr are President and Vice President of the organization STOP-NOP (Stop Mandatory Vaccination) in Poland, and Arkadiusz is a vaccine injury attorney in the Polish court system. My hosts were extremely gracious and I consider them heroes in the face of very aggressive vaccine mandates for children in Poland.

    According to my hosts, there are no philosophical or religious exemptions to vaccines in Poland. The only way to “opt out” of any vaccines on the schedule is to pay a fine of approximately $12,000 per child, or to fight against the mandates individually in civil court.

    According to the Polish Minister of Health, “Resignation from mandatory vaccinations is impossible. Thanks to mandatory vaccination we maintain high immunization coverage and protect the weakest who cannot be immunized.”

    In addition, the vaccination schedule for infants and children is very aggressive compared to the vaccination schedule in the United States. Polish infants receive the Hepatitis B and the BCG (tuberculosis) vaccine on the first day of life. In addition, the whole cell pertussis vaccine within the DPT (diphtheria/pertussis/tetanus) vaccine is given to infants at 2, 4, 6 and 15 months. Most of the world’s developed countries abandoned this vaccine formulation prior to 2000 due to a strong propensity to cause vaccine adverse events.

    Other vaccines on the infant schedule include the Haemophilus influenza B (Hib), MMR, polio, and pneumococcal pneumonia vaccines. According to my hosts, health ministers in Poland are also pushing to add other vaccines to the schedule, including the HPV vaccine series for adolescents.

    Given this onerous vaccination schedule, it was no wonder my hosts are pushing to overturn country-wide vaccine mandates in the Sejm, as well as reform the court system to ease the burden-of-proof for vaccine injury. According to Justyna Socha, there was an initiative signed by nearly 100,000 Polish citizens to overturn vaccine mandates, but it was rejected by an overwhelming majority of the Sejm.

    As a concession in this defeat, the Sejm agreed to host a series of briefings on vaccine safety with speakers selected by Deputy Pawel Skutecki and the officers of STOP-NOP. Dr. Christopher Exley, one of the speakers at a previous briefing, is a very prolific and distinguished researcher from the UK. Dr. Exley discussed the link between aluminum toxicity in vaccines and developmental disabilities, including autism.

    At the briefing, I was joined by Ms. Senta Depuydt, a journalist from Belgium who has written and studied vaccine injury extensively especially in the EU and is the mother of a vaccine injured child. Ms. Depuydt discussed the politics of vaccine mandates and highlighted different policies among the EU countries. In addition, Ms. Ola Yarimiychuk Gouk, a journalist from the Ukraine, spoke regarding the lack of any recourse for vaccine injury in her country.

    My presentation covered flaws and outright fraudulent statistical methods in research studies claiming vaccine safety in the increasing epidemic of neurodevelopmental disorders, including autism. I focused somewhat on issues within the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention since much of the developed world follows the CDC’s lead regarding vaccine safety.

    The briefing was well-attended with approximately 50 people including 10 deputies of the Sejm. There were many positive questions regarding vaccine safety from the attendees. There was one negative comment from a pediatrician who insisted that “vaccines do not cause autism” and that anti-vaccinationists were responsible for recent measles outbreaks in the news.

    The Polish Minister of Health declined to attend the briefing, claiming that he would not give credence to anti-vaccinationist arguments. This was extremely unfortunate, given the real concerns of my hosts in a country with little or no recourse for families who are “vaccine hesitant” or have vaccine injured children. Branding brave individuals who dare question the safety of bloated infant and child vaccination schedules as “anti-vaccine” serves no one and is just meant to shut down a much needed dialogue to preserve the best health for children everywhere!

    I am grateful to my hosts for their overwhelming hospitality for a “trip of a lifetime” to Poland and to understand the issues facing those who are “vaccine hesitant” in other nations. My discussions with them were eye-opening, especially regarding pharma greed around the world.

    My hosts at STOP-NOP are sponsoring an International Protest against Mandatory Vaccination on June 2 in Warsaw, Poland and I encourage any folks in the EU who can travel to Poland to join them in their incredible work.

    Measles Madness: Dr. Brian Hooker’s Statement to WA Legislators
    By Brian S. Hooker, Science Advisor, Focus for Health and Board Member, Children’s Health Defense
    FEBRUARY 19, 2019
    This article originally published by Focus for Health.

    Dr. Hooker provided testimony last Friday, February 8, 2019, for the Washington State House Health Committee regarding the vaccines and the Personal Belief Exemption (PBE) bill that was introduced.

    Recent outbreaks of measles, especially in Rockland County, New York and Clark County, Washington have created quite a furor in the public health infrastructure of the U.S. and now within state legislatures. Industry front groups like the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) have seized the opportunity to introduce legislation to remove personal belief exemptions and religious exemptions for vaccinations required for school attendance. Nationwide, over 70 different bills have been introduced or are expected to be introduced in state legislatures to limit these types of exemptions.

    I recently had the privilege to testify in the Health Committee in the House of Representatives for Washington State and wanted to share some excerpts of my testimony. In Washington State, legislators have introduced a bill to remove the personal belief exemption specifically for the Measles Mumps Rubella (MMR) vaccine. I want to thank Karl Kanthak and Bernadette Pajer who both contributed important information for my testimony.

    … it’s not low vaccination rates, it’s actually high vaccination rates with a vaccine product unable to provide lifetime immunity
    The following is taken from my testimony:
    There is a problem with measles in Washington State, but it’s not low vaccination rates, it’s actually high vaccination rates with a vaccine product unable to provide lifetime immunity or vigorous passive maternal protection to infants during the first year of life.

    When the measles vaccine was first introduced, most people over the age of 15 who had wild measles had lifetime immunity. In developed nations, like other communicable infections, measles was no longer dangerous except in rare circumstances because of inadequate nutrition, poor sanitation, and / or lack of healthcare. Because having the measles was a routine part of childhood, teens, adults, parents, and grandparents were immune. And because of maternal passive immunity, infants were protected. The death rate due to measles in Washington State in the four years prior to the introduction of the measles vaccine was 1.4 in 10,000 cases and approximately 2 in 1,000,000 in the general population.

    Legislators are being told that use of personal and religious belief exemptions are putting the public’s health in danger. They are told that two infants were recently exposed to measles and the babies are in danger. But in fact, if the mothers of the children had wild measles when they were children and they are nursing, the babies may be protected. If the mothers were vaccinated, even if they are nursing, they may not be. Additionally, maternal antibodies transported across the placenta can provide vital immunity against measles for infants.

    Pushing vaccination rates up even higher with an ineffective product is not the answer. As the editor of the journal Vaccine Dr. Gregory Poland of The Mayo Clinic stated in 1994, “…as measles immunization rates rise to high levels in a population, measles becomes a disease of immunized persons.” An MMR vaccination rate of 75% has been reported for the recent measles cluster in Rockland County, New York.

    … vaccination does not guarantee immunization and infectious diseases routinely break out in highly vaccinated communities.
    It was reported in the news and provided to legislators that in Clark County, WA there is a 22% exemption rate, but this is based on the voluntary Immunization Information Survey (IIS) which does not accurately reflect the vaccination status of all children enrolled in Washington schools. When compared to the more accurate CDC statistics for the state of Washington for MMR coverage among 19 to 35 month olds, it is 95.3% +/- 2.6%. The IIS erroneously reports this number at 81.8% and cannot be relied upon.

    The current personal belief exemption rate for K-12 for the MMR vaccine in Washington State is only 2.9% (WA DOH School Survey). Vaccination rates for kindergarteners for at least one MMR vaccine are at least 93% (WA DOH School Survey). Washington State has achieved the public health goal of very high vaccination rates.

    As I have already remarked, vaccination does not guarantee immunization and infectious diseases routinely break out in highly vaccinated communities. An example of this is pertussis outbreaks, which occur due to problems with the acellular pertussis portion of the DTaP and Tdap vaccine, creating asymptomatic carriers. An asymptomatic carrier is a person that has become infected with a pathogen, but who display no signs nor symptoms. Although unaffected by the pathogen themselves, carriers can transmit it to others or develop symptoms in later stages of disease.

    SB277 [removal of personal belief exemptions in CA] did not “change the minds” of non-vaccinating parents. Instead, it pushed families out of school and created lost income to school districts.
    The SB277 experience in California, where personal belief exemptions were struck down in 2016, has not led to 100% vaccine compliance even within the school system. Removal of personal belief exemptions has served to alienate parents leading to an exodus from the school system (1.2%), as well as from the state, and placing the school districts in the untenable role of “vaccination enforcers.” An additional 1.4% within the school district are still unvaccinated due to Federal Individualized Education Programs, medical and other exemptions. SB277 did not change the minds of non-vaccinating parents. Instead, it pushed families out of school and created lost income to school districts.

    Regarding the Australian experience with vaccine mandates, one official stated that, “Parents reported a greater commitment to their decision not to vaccinate and an increased desire to maintain control over health choices for their children including an unprecedented willingness to become involved in protest action.” (J. Public Health Policy 2018 39:156, Helps et al.) With the removal of the PBE for the MMR vaccine, 2.9% of the children in WA State, which is 15,000 to 20,000 students, will be excluded from school. If the PBE is removed for all vaccines required for school attendance, 37,000 children will be removed from school. For small school districts, this will cause a financial crisis. Mandates do not encourage vaccination, they push exemption-using families out of schools.

    Over the past ten years in the U.S., there has been one reported death from the measles . . . During the same time period (based on VAERS reports), there have been 105 reported deaths associated with the MMR or MMRV vaccinations.
    The Supreme Court in the Bruesewitz vs. Wyeth case called vaccinations “unavoidably unsafe,” and the scientific literature shows an incidence of vaccine adverse events that is dangerous in light of the proposed mandate. Over the past ten years in the U.S., there has been one reported death from the measles, and it is unclear based on the medical history of the patient whether and how measles played a role in their death. During the same time period (based on Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) reports), there have been 105 reported deaths associated with the MMR or MMRV vaccinations.

    From 2006 to 2011, the CDC funded a project by Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, Inc. for the automation of the VAERS database. VAERS up to this point has been a passive surveillance system based on voluntary reporting of vaccine adverse events (AEs) and CDC officials were concerned about underreporting of such events. The team from Harvard Pilgrim set up a monitoring system of a large health care provider (with 35 clinics) and monitoring the outcomes of from 1.4 million vaccines received. Using chart abstraction, 35,570 potential adverse events were reported within a window of 30 days post-vaccination. In other words, the rate of potential adverse events was 2.6%. As legislators, you are feeling pressure to protect infants and others susceptible to poor infection outcome, but taking away the personal belief exemption for an ineffective product is not the answer.

    You must not only protect those who are susceptible to poor infection outcome, but protect those who are susceptible to poor vaccination outcome, and to consider the unintended consequences of a fully vaccinated population that does not have lifetime immunity.
    This is another good interview. Barbara Loe Fisher states that if we don't do something, the noose that I have suspected is absolutely what is planned... cradle to grave vaccination or complete social ostracization.

    Just google vaccine resistance and one sees a blanket of fear mongering aimed at vaccine hesitance. If there ever was a paradigm crisis in which one must choose what we should risk for fundamental human rights, IMO this is the it for our lifetime.

    If one goes to google to look up profiles of people in the news regarding this extremely important subject, one gets the equivalent of the Saturday Night Live analysis of the measles epidemic and vaccination hesitancy.

    Dear Editor,
    We commend Doshi on citing “insufficient evidence” for a benefit from mandatory influenza vaccination in healthcare workers and exposing conflicts of interest. [1] In the same vein, our organization has found that it has not been proven that the MMR vaccine results in less death or permanent disability than what is expected from measles.[2] The risk of dying or suffering permanent injury from measles in the United States was very small, even before the measles vaccine was introduced in 1963. Therefore, vaccine safety studies must show that the risk of dying or suffering permanent injury from the MMR vaccine is even smaller.

    In the late 1950s and early 1960s, right before the measles mass vaccination program was introduced, the chance of dying from measles was 1 in 10,000 or 0.01%.[3] However, the public is generally unaware of this figure as the CDC publishes case-fatality rates based on the number of reported cases only. Since it is estimated that nearly 90% of measles cases are benign and therefore not reported to the CDC, the widely publicized measles case-fatality rate is 10 times higher than what is actually found in the general population.

    Furthermore, a large 2004 Danish epidemiological study published in JAMA found that the risk of febrile seizures after MMR vaccination is 1 in 640[4] —a five-fold higher risk of febrile seizure than the risk of seizure from measles.[5] Vestergaard et al. studied the association between MMR and seizures in about 537,000 Danish children 0 to 14 days following MMR vaccination and found 1.56 MMR-related febrile seizure cases per 1,000 vaccinated children aged 15 to 17 months (95% CI, 1.44 to 1.68). Vestergaard’s results are based on 973 febrile seizures within two weeks of MMR vaccination, a robust database containing about 18,000 febrile seizures, and a nonvaccinated control group of about 98,000 children. Applying the 1 in 640 risk of febrile seizure to the 3.64 million U.S. children (91% vaccination rate applied to 4 million children[6]) vaccinated with MMR every year results in about 5,700 annual MMR-related seizures.

    Measles surveillance in the 1980s and 1990s revealed that there are 3 to 3.5 times more measles seizures than measles deaths.[5] Therefore, because the measles case-fatality rate is 1 in 10,000, the seizure rate from measles is 3 to 3.5 in 10,000 (mean 1 in 3,100). Although 1.56 MMR-related febrile seizures in 1,000 (about 1 in 640) is a small risk, it is five-fold higher than the 1 in 3,100 risk of seizures from measles.[5] In addition, a significant portion of febrile seizures have permanent sequelae. A large 2007 epidemiological study found that 5% of febrile seizures result in epilepsy.[7]

    A query of the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) for symptoms involving seizures and convulsions from all measles vaccines (for U.S. children age 6 months to 2 years, between 2011 and 2015) results in about 90 seizure reports per year.[8] This is only 1.6% of the about 5,700 expected MMR-related seizures based on Vestergaard’s findings. Other serious vaccine adverse events after MMR, including deaths, may similarly be underreported.

    As with mandatory influenza vaccination, there is insufficient evidence that mandatory measles vaccination results in a net public health benefit.

    Vaxxed (the film) was a documentary that revealed a cover up at the CDC.

    Vaxxed II is going to come out this year and is the documentary about the movie showings and Vaxxed team's travel across the US talking to parents, politicians and providers. The stories of negative health effects directly linked by the parents with vaccination flooded in.

    Many health professionals revealed they are in a huge dilemma as they see the evidence themselves and face cognitive dissonance.



    The culture of health care as it has been set up is an entrenched mesh of systems where even those who know feel afraid to speak out.



    Physicians are enculturated into a religion but some lose the faith as they gain knowledge.



    So we can gain information BUT when law mandates, we have no choice. In the face of LAW all the information cannot help. Politicians make the laws. We have to make this political.

    Quote Democrats and Republicans Remain Divided As Ever Over Vaccine Laws
    Jim Satney May 4, 2019

    There’s a war outside our windows. It’s a social war that many of you never thought would see the light of day. As it’s intensity swells, some wonder if we are on the cusp of the new “climate change debate.” We may be.

    The war over vaccines was always considered to be between outlier elitists and the commoners – the conspiracy theorists and science – the parents of reportedly injured children and the parents in pandemic fear of the other side. You never cared if politicians supported vaccines, in fact, you vaccinated your children. But, forcing vaccines through policy is a hard line in the sand.

    Media coverage over vaccine skepticism was at one time reduced to soundbites of Jenny McCarthy shouting down the MMR shot. Or unconfirmed reports of Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel’s avoidance of vaccines. The outrage existed. The harsh debates between both sides were always dug in. But politically, alliances were messier. The term “anti-vaxxer” was applied to no political side. In fact, an “anti-vaxxer’s” political alliance was always a crapshoot. You never knew.

    That’s changed. And that could mean that the vaccination issue is reaching an apex or tipping point. In the past, the anti-vaccine movement suffered from its non-political-affiliation. Without a side of the aisle firmly supportive, any cause becomes less amplified. It can’t organize. It gets left off the debate stage. If it isn’t being debated by politicians, it’s largely ignored. No side can “win.”

    The Republican party is beginning to back the anti-vaccine movement. But even that statement needs clarity. As so often is the case, politicians tend to twist context when they argue matters. Democrats are calling just about any opposition to anything vaccine-related “anti-vaxxer.” And it’s backfiring. Because common-sense people can distinguish context and complexity. The end game for Democrats is to classify the common person who doesn’t believe in mandatory flu shots as “someone who thinks vaccines cause Autism.” The media’s on-board, the problem is, America isn’t. And the Republican party has seen the light.

    Before I dive in further, no, I’m not saying vaccines cause autism. I don’t love Republicans, they’ve been robbing us as long as Democrats have been robbing us. I’m arguing that Republicans realize parents want medical rights over their children, even if they do worry about anti-vaccine neighbors. And now the GOP is dug in on the issue because they realize its more 2020 campaign fuel (a lot more).

    Anti-Vaccine or Parental Rights?
    The term “anti-vaccine” is widely misused in the media and by politicians. The United States undoubtedly is home to numerous anti-vaxxers. These are people who firmly believe that vaccines are responsible for injuries. Some believe that the government uses vaccines to sicken the herd. Others believe vaccines are a globalist weapon.

    But Democrats determine that those parents who support vaccines, just not the timeline schedule, are anti-vaxxers. Some believe that there are too many vaccines – Dems stamp them as anti-vaxxers. Some people just don’t want a flu shot – rinse, wash, repeat. This is inaccurate labeling. If someone accepts vaccines, just on a delayed or altered schedule, they hardly warrant a dramatic label. The cubicle worker that refuses a flu shot doesn’t warrant the label.

    Mislabeling as political savvy gets worse when we branch out into parental rights supporters. And this is the crux of the sticky situation. Many Republicans that are called “anti-vaxxers” state over and over that they are simply for parental rights.

    Take Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) as a prime example. He’s stated that his children are vaccinated, but he’s vehemently opposed to government mandates. Paul is a revered eye surgeon. He earned a medical degree from Duke University School of Medicine in Durham, N.C. Paul’s stance is that we shouldn’t trade our liberty for a false sense of security.

    That’s not anti-vaccine, that’s merely Paul being consistent with his core beliefs. Yet, last month, CSPAN ran a headline linking Paul to anti-vaccine advocates. Sure, those against all vaccines would support a politician that opposes laws mandating their use. That’s fair. But Paul’s condemnation centers around parental rights. That’s the core competency of his argument. But it’s intentionally missed as a way to create outrage over the matter. And that’s good for no one.

    Republicans Are Digging In…The Great Vaccine Divide Has Legs
    Democrats are responding to media outrage over measles outbreaks by writing bills that strengthen immunization laws. Lawmakers in New Jersey, Arizona, Colorado, New York, and Maine, have authored bills that remove vaccine exemptions or drastically restrict them. But those bills are facing new opposition: Republicans. In Washington state, SB 1638, which removes personal exemptions, passed 25-22. The votes went almost exactly down party lines.

    Republicans are opting to support parental rights in the face of harsh criticism. And this may have massive 2020 campaign consequences. Here’s why.

    The “anti-vaccine” movement, an all-encompassing term that intentionally misleads, was always non-political. Even states such as West Virginia and Mississippi, long regarded as two of the strictest vaccine states in the nation, suddenly have Republican-authored bills to lessen restrictive exemption processes. Republicans are calling for more attainable vaccine exemptions in the face of media outrage over measles. Is there a redder state than Mississippi? What a conundrum for Democrats. Mississippi has been notoriously strict on vaccine exemptions. Prior to California’s mandatory vaccine law passage, Mississippi was the strictest.

    One of the reddest states in American history, the strictest vaccine state in America, is suddenly considering loosening up exemption laws.

    Democratic strategic mislabeling is backfiring on Democrats. The consequence is red states shifting away from their traditional values. This is hardly Republican support for vaccine rights, this is the consequence of people running far away from Democrat lunacy. Every issue Democrats stroke turns into a dumpster fire. The mandatory vaccine issue is no different.

    In 2015, then Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton famously Tweeted,


    @HillaryClinton
    The science is clear: The earth is round, the sky is blue, and #vaccineswork. Let's protect all our kids. #GrandmothersKnowBest



    Clinton’s Tweet reflected the extent that most politicians went in terms of vaccine rhetoric. While Clinton’s Tweet made her opinion clear, it didn’t bury her in political polls. She didn’t buy ads pushing vaccines.

    Democrats in 2019, however, are buying ad space to warn of anti-vaccine dangers. New York Senators launched an ad campaign pushing for “acceptance” of vaccines. The bigger issue is that New York initiated the first ever mandatory vaccine bill on all people.

    “I know that other politicians promote legislation that promotes vaccines, but I’ve never seen an advertising campaign favoring vaccines (from them), I’ve only seen that from public health departments,” Robert Krakow, the attorney who represents NY parents against the mandatory vaccine law, said. “This is very unusual.”

    “Generally, I just don’t think it’s the role of a legislator,” he added.

    Here’s the formula for failure.

    As Democrats continue to mislabel, they similarly continue to embolden the group they war with. The anti-vaccine group is swelling, but only because Democrats keep dropping more and more seeds into its soil.

    The working Joe that just doesn’t want a flu shot is now an anti-vaxxer. He’s voted Democrat his entire life. But now suddenly, he’s condemned by his own party. The liberty-minded folks among us that are anti-Trump are now tested by the same anti-vax term. They merely want Americans to retain medical rights over their children. They’ve said nothing about autism and vaccines.

    For the first time in history, there is a true political divide over vaccines. Democrats are for mandatory vaccines, Republicans are against it. Democrats believe that someone who doesn’t’ want a flu shot, or delays the vaccine schedule, or doesn’t believe in mandatory vaccines, is an anti-vaxxer. The Republican voting base is swelling because Democrats keep widening the scope of voters.

    Suddenly, voters must consider the mandatory vaccine issue. And they now see a hard line in the sand between Democrats and Republicans.

    Republicans are riding a wave of parental rights protection. They realize that most Americans don’t want the government deciding which medicines their children should take. And they are willing to ride the wave, confidently, into 2020. Republicans consistently say they support vaccines, but not vaccine mandates. In Texas, the Tea Party created the anti-vax PAC in 2015. It’s stalled out, but it could see more funding as media outrage continues to deliver on the nightly news.

    Some media personalities are bucking the trend. Tucker Carlson consistently features the who’s who over mandatory vaccine opposition on his prime time show.



    Tucker isn’t against vaccines.

    “They piled on you,” Carlson said to Kennedy in his usual disingenuous way. “Why? Why is raising questions about the safety of vaccines a no-go zone?”

    Tucker is playing to the anti-censorship crowd. And it’s working.

    The vaccine debate is quickly becoming the new climate change. And it’s growing via the same liberal incompetence of mislabeling. Most people believe we should temper our use of automobiles, or that flying big passenger jets contributes to some environmental degradation. But a lot of us don’t think that it will stop snowing on Mount Kilimanjaro two years ago (hint, this never happened, sorry Al Gore).

    Don’t think that the world will end in 2025? You’re a climate change denier. Once you are labeled a climate change denier, you begin to experience disdain by the labeler. The labeler is the Democratic party.

    This is how mislabeling backfires. It reduces an otherwise logical issue to mayhem. It becomes too inclusive. It forces people to take a side. Suddenly you’re voting for Donald Trump, a former reality TV star. That’s how these equations flush out.

    The Democratic party has a bad habit of going too extreme at all the wrong times. And they are doing it again. Vaccines are worth public discussions. But we can’t have these discussions when over half our population is being shouted down with misdirected, strategic labels.

    The Republican Strategy Is Simple: Vote Dem, Be Forced To Vaccinate
    Imagine a world where the state forces you to vaccinate. Or the state removes your rights to guns. It’s all conspiracy theory until it isn’t. The reckless Democratic party plays their initial hand well. When Republican voters claim things like “gun grab” or “forced vaccinations,” the Democratic party paints them as conspiracy theorists that we should disregard.

    In the early discussions, the strategy plays well.

    But then…

    New York mandates vaccines for all citizens in specific Burroughs. Senate Bill 5062 would have banned all magazines with a capacity of more than 10 rounds (that’s most every standard gun type). Suddenly, people feel lied to and deceived. This leads to distrust and emboldens those “conspiracy theorists” to leverage new theories.

    Parents Choosing Homeschool Options More Than Ever
    The result of more stringent mandatory vaccine policies is increased homeschool rates. In 2010, there were 2 million homeschool students in the United States. In 2016, the number rose to 2.3 million. We can’t blame mandatory vaccine laws alone, many parents are choosing to homeschool based on a variety of influences. But it is difficult to argue that parents aren’t opting out of public schools as a way to avoid these laws.

    But now the media and politicians are attacking homeschool families. Just last week, Fox News published a piece titled “‘House of Horrors’ child abuse cases reveals how offenders nationwide use homeschooling to hide their crimes.”

    The article focuses on several recent high-profile child abuse cases. But these cases are the exception rather than the rule.

    One of the primary cases the article focuses on is the horrible case of David and Louise Turpin. The California couple held their 13 kids hostage and regularly abused them.

    “Imagine if the Turpins had at least an annual check,” Coleman said, referring to the California parents, David and Louise Turpin, who last week was sentenced to 25 years to life in prison. “There’s no way they could have been seen by a doctor or a certified teacher and skated that long.”

    This reads reasonably at first glance. But a problem arises when Coleman says medical records are the essential driver in potential home reviews.

    “We’d like to have medical records required of families who homeschool and have standardized tests or portfolios reviewed by teachers, or doctors, or counselors, social workers, or clergy, each year,” Coleman said. “Then we can notice if there’s something egregious.”

    Would they only look for abuse? Or would they monitor the status of chickenpox or flu vaccines? In the U.K, one town is creating a homeschool registry.

    This is where voters may get uneasy about government intervention into homeschooling.

    Always know your homeschool state laws before making the decision to pull your child from school. In the

    Democrats and Vaccines: 2020 Candidates – Strangely Absent From Mandatory Chatter
    It’s important to distinguish between those who promote vaccines for health purposes and those who push for mandatory vaccine laws. I don’t believe those pushing for vaccines as a benefit to society suffer political consequences. In reality, Republicans are promoting the same idea. The fallout comes from those who push for mandatory vaccinations. Democratic Presidential candidates are eluding the mandatory issue. They’re allowing the radicals in their party test the waters.

    But at some point, they’ll be asked point blank over mandatory vaccines. Will they shun the radicals in their party?

    Elizabeth Warren and Vaccines
    Warren hasn’t stated her position on mandatory vaccinations, but like most of her policies, she wants tax payer funding and universal access.

    “When the polio and measles vaccines became available for the first time, parents lined up to make sure their kids would be protected,” Warren said at a congressional hearing in 2015. “They’d lived in a world of infectious diseases that destroyed children’s futures, and they desperately wanted to leave that world behind.”

    “The more we do on the front end to ensure that everyone gets access to vaccines, the less we’ll see individuals contracting hepatitis A, measles, whooping cough, and all of the other vaccine-preventable diseases. We must make sure there is robust public health funding so people have access to vaccines,” Warren said.

    Kamala Harris Supported California’s Mandatory Vaccine Law, SB277
    kamala harris vaccines
    photo credit: shutterstock

    Harris is reportedly in favor of mandatory vaccinations. The assumption is based on her office’s support of SB277. She’s yet to make her own definitive statement. Her spokesperson said, “She thinks people should get vaccines.”

    Bernie Sanders Likely Supports Strict Vaccine Laws
    When asked about whether or not he supports mandatory vaccinations.

    “Obviously, vaccinations work. Vaccination has worked for many, many years,” Sen. Bernie Sanders told The Daily Beast. “I am sensitive to the fact that there are some families who disagree but the difficulty is if I have a kid who is suffering from an illness who is subjected to a kid who walks into a room without vaccines that could kill that child and that’s wrong.”

    In 2004, Sanders argued with an FDA representative when he contended that flu vaccine shortages were harming people’s health.

    Amy Klobuchar Supports Universal Flu Vaccines
    She’s yet to dig in on the issue of mandatory vaccines.

    “Last year’s flu was the worst we’ve seen in years and with the next flu season starting soon, we have to be prepared,” Klobuchar said. “The Flu Vaccine Act will support critical research at the National Institutes of Health to finally develop a universal vaccine so Minnesotans and all Americans can be better protected from all variations of the flu.”

    “Flu shots are already available for the coming flu season, and we need to make funding available for a universal flu vaccine to end of this viral scourge,” Markey said. “Increased federal investment in a vaccine will help predict the right strain for the next season, produce a more optimal vaccine, and protect all Americans against all strains of this virus. I am pleased that we continue to invest in a flu-free future.”

    Joe Biden Largely Absent From Vaccine Debate
    He’s muttered very little over the issue.

    “I look forward to the day when your grandchildren and my grandchildren and their children show up at the office to get their physical to start school and get a shot for measles and they get a vaccine that affects significant causes of cancer,” he said while discussing the Cancer Moonshot coalition in 2016.

    Pete Buttigieg and Vaccines
    Buttigieg believes strongly that states should have the option to enforce mandatory vaccine laws. He believes that religious and personal exemptions should only be allowed in states not facing a public health crisis. But, he doesn’t define “public health crisis.”

    “The law of the land for more than a century has been that states may enforce mandatory vaccination for public safety to prevent the spread of a dangerous disease. Pete does support some exceptions, except during a public health emergency to prevent an outbreak,” a spokesperson stated on his behalf per Buzzfeed News.

    “These exemptions include medical exemptions in all cases (as in cases where it is unsafe for the individual to get vaccinated), and personal/religious exemptions if states can maintain local herd immunity and there is no public health crisis,” the spokesperson said.

    “Pete believes vaccines are safe and effective and are necessary to maintaining public health,” the spokesperson said. “There is no evidence that vaccines are unsafe, and he believes children should be immunized to protect their health. He is aware that in most states the law provides for some kinds of exemptions. He believes only medical exemptions should be allowed.”

    Beto O’Rourke and Vaccines

    The Democrat party has high hopes for this former Texas’ 16th congressional district rep. O’Rourke says that his children are vaccinated but stops short of pushing for mandatory bills.

    “The evidence is clear and there is wide agreement among doctors and scientists that vaccination is the best course for our kids and our communities,” he said. “Beto and Amy have chosen to vaccinate their three children because they believe it is important to ensuring our country’s children are healthy, safe, and secure.”

    “I know just about as much as any parent. All three of my kids are vaccinated,” O’Rourke said in a video posted by the group. “I know that this is an issue that some people have a difference of opinion on. I’m not as informed as I should be to give you a thoughtful answer.”

    The Democrats Can’t Separate From Radicals
    While Democrat party Presidential candidates may intentionally dodge the issue of mandatory vaccines, they’ll be dragged down by the radicals in their party. This is the same play they make on issues of gun bans. While their radicals support gun bans, Presidential candidates tend to say “gun control” and leave the meaning of that rather ambiguous.

    But the radicals within are growing. And traditional Democrats are being pushed to make hard decisions. Democrats nationwide are voting down the party line in favor of mandatory vaccination laws. These 2020 candidates aren’t going to be able to shake that stigma. And Republicans are going to cash in at the polls next year.

    Donald Trump is likely to win huge again next year. There is little doubt that a hyper-fueled economy will represent a big part of that. But it is difficult to ignore the Democrats’ inability to find the middle. A middle-ground candidate offers Dems a great chance at voting Trump out. But Republicans should rest easy, Democrats have shown no aptitude for this strategy.

    Instead, they continue to move to increase their voting base. Kamala Harris and Bernie Sanders are now supporting allowing prisoners to vote, including the Boston Marathon bomber. Rather than go moderate, they’ve chosen to go more radical. And this means few parents will trust any of these candidates with their rights.

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

    CBC Radio - Today Sunday May 5th has a show on vaccines.

    Cross Country Checkup
    Should the measles shot be mandatory?

    So far this year, at least 41 cases of measles have been confirmed across Canada, hitting Quebec, British Columbia, Ontario, Alberta and the Northwest Territories.

    Meanwhile, the World Health Organization says that the number of reported cases around the globe has quadrupled in the first three months of 2019 compared to the same period last year.

    The measles outbreak is, once again, stoking the vaccination debate, particularly on social media networks like Twitter and Facebook — two platforms which have struggled to contain the spread of misinformation.
    (cough, cough, yeah that's the mainstream media's job)

    Okay Project Avalon Team--have at it-- there's an 800 number--

    Currently, Ontario and New Brunswick require proof of immunization for children and adolescents to attend school.

    Our question this week: Should the measles shot be mandatory?

    Example of vaccine created aggravations:


    Fast-tracked dengue vaccine wreaks havoc in the Philippines, 600 child deaths under investigation

    Michaeleen Doucleff NPR
    Fri, 03 May 2019 14:45 UTC


    At a Feb. 21, 2018, Philippine Senate hearing in Manila on deaths linked to the dengue vaccine, families brought photos of children who had been vaccinated. © Noel Celis /AFP/Getty Images

    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration just approved one of the most sought after vaccines in recent decades. It's the world's first vaccine to prevent dengue fever - a disease so painful that its nickname is "breakbone fever."

    The vaccine, called Dengvaxia, is aimed at helping children in Puerto Rico and other U.S. territories where dengue is a problem.

    But this vaccine has a dark - and deadly - history. One that has led to criminal charges in the Philippines, sparked national panic and fueled a massive measles outbreak that has already killed more than 355 people.

    The concern
    That story begins on a stage in Manila in 2016.

    A young girl, about age 9 or 10, sat on a chair surrounded by health officials. She wore a bright yellow T-shirt with the words "Dengue is dangerous" across it. She squeezed her eyes and bit her lip as the health secretary of the Philippines, Dr. Janette Garin, gave her a shot in the arm.

    That shot launched a massive vaccine campaign to inoculate nearly 1 million schoolchildren with Dengvaxia. The goal was to save thousands of kids' lives and prevent an estimated 10,000 hospitalizations over a five-year period.

    But in the end, estimates are that more than 100,000 Philippine children received a vaccine that health officials say increased their risk of a severe and sometimes deadly condition. In addition, other children who received the vaccine may have been endangered because, their parents alleged, they were not in good health.

    The French pharmaceutical company Sanofi Pasteur spent 20 years - and about $2 billion - to develop Dengvaxia. The company tested it in several large trials with more than 30,000 kids globally and published the results in the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine.

    But halfway around the world from the Philippines, in a Washington, D.C., suburb, one scientist was worried about the new vaccine.

    "When I read the New England Journal article, I almost fell out of my chair," says Dr. Scott Halstead, who has studied dengue for more than 50 years with the U.S. military. When Halstead looked at the vaccine's safety data in the clinical trial, he knew right away there was a problem.

    For some children, the vaccine didn't seem to work. In fact, Halstead says, it appeared to be harmful. When those kids caught dengue after being vaccinated, the vaccine appeared to worsen the disease in some instances. Specifically, for children who had never been exposed to dengue, the vaccine seemed to increase the risk of a deadly complication called plasma leakage syndrome, in which blood vessels start to leak the yellow fluid of the blood.

    "Then everything gets worse, and maybe it's impossible to save your life," Halstead says. "A child can go into shock."

    "The trouble is that the disease occurs very rapidly, just in a matter of a few hours," he adds. "And there's nothing on the outside of the body to signify the person is leaking fluid on the inside."

    The complication is rare, says Halstead. Still, he was so worried about the safety concerns that he wrote at least six editorials for scientific journals. He even made a video to warn the Philippine government about the problem.

    "I just think, 'No, you can't give a vaccine to a perfectly normal, healthy person and then put them at an increased risk for the rest of their lives for plasma leakage syndrome,' " Halstead says. "You can't do that."

    The vaccine manufacturer disagreed with Halstead's interpretation of the study's results. The company wrote a rebuttal, asserting that regulatory agencies had approved Dengvaxia "on the basis of the vaccine's proven protection and acceptable safety profile."

    The company also said it would perform additional studies to "further assess the safety, efficacy and effectiveness" of the vaccine.

    Despite these concerns, in July 2016, the World Health Organization went ahead and recommended the vaccine for all children ages 9 to 16.

    "Yes, we did. It was what we call a 'conditional recommendation' with the emphasis to minimize potential risks," says Dr. Joachim Hombach, who led WHO's review of the vaccine. "We saw the problems. We also clearly pointed to the data gaps."

    WHO recommended that Sanofi do more experiments to better understand the vaccine's safety issues. In its assessment, WHO pointed out that the vaccine "may be ineffective or may theoretically even increase the future risk of [being] hospitalized or severe dengue illness" in people who have never been exposed to dengue - which is about 10% to 20% of Philippine children.

    WHO's recommendation came three months after the Philippines launched its mass vaccination campaign in April 2016.

    A year and half later, that campaign came to a screeching halt.

    The problem
    In November 2017, Sanofi published an announcement on its website saying it had new information about Dengvaxia's safety.

    Halstead's fears were confirmed. Sanofi had found evidence that the vaccine increases the risk of hospitalization and cytoplasmic leakage syndrome in children who had no prior exposure to dengue, regardless of age.
    "For individuals who have not been previously infected by dengue virus, vaccination should not be recommended," the company wrote.
    Panic hit the Philippines. In news reports, parents said that the vaccine contributed to the deaths of 10 children. Protests erupted. The Congress of the Philippines launched investigations into the vaccine's purchase and the immunization campaign. And Philippine health officials started performing autopsies on children who died after receiving the vaccine. "In total, the deaths of about 600 children who received Dengvaxia are under investigation by the Public Attorney's Office, " the South China Morning Post reported last month. Investigators have not yet released their results.

    Here's the problem with Dengvaxia.

    Typically, a vaccine works by triggering the immune system to make antibodies against the virus. These antibodies then fight off the virus during an infection.

    But dengue is a tricky virus. Dengue antibodies don't always protect a person. In fact, these antibodies can make an infection worse. The dengue virus actually uses the antibodies to help it spread through the body. So a second infection with dengue - when your blood already has antibodies in it - can actually be worse than the first; a person is at a higher risk of severe complications like plasma leakage syndrome.

    In its follow-up study, Sanofi found evidence that Dengvaxia acts like the first infection for a person who has not been previously infected. The body produces antibodies against the vaccine, which have a similar potential for harm.

    The increased risk seems small. The vaccine raises the risk of hospitalization after a dengue infection from about 1.1% to 1.6%, the follow-up study from Sanofi found. So out of 1 million kids in the Philippines, the vaccine would cause about 1,000 to be hospitalized over five years, Sanofi estimated. (On the other hand, the vaccine would prevent about 12,000 hospitalizations for a new dengue infection in children who have had a prior dengue infection during this same time period.)

    But in the world of vaccines, that's not an acceptable risk. A risk needs to be exceedingly small to be tolerated. For example, with the measles vaccine, the risk of encephalitis is about 1 in 1 million, or 1,000 times less than the risk from a measles infection, WHO says.

    WHO eventually changed its recommendation. The agency now says the vaccine is safe only for children who have had a prior dengue infection.

    By the time Sanofi acknowledged this problem with the vaccine, about 800,000 Philippine children had been vaccinated. The Sanofi study estimated that more than 100,000 of them had never been infected with dengue and should not have received the shot, according to WHO's revised recommendation.

    Given the concerns by Halstead and the initial unknowns about the vaccine's safety, Philippine parents should have been warned about a potential risk, says Dr. Isabel Rodriguez at the University of California, San Francisco.

    "What bothers me most about this story is risk communication," says Rodriguez, who studies dengue in South America. "There was a lot of uncertainty from the beginning [about the vaccine's safety]. That needed to be communicated explicitly. You need to be honest about what evidence is out there."

    Dr. Su-Peing Ng, global medical head of Sanofi Pasteur, says the company followed all World Health Organization guidelines while developing the vaccine and communicated honestly throughout the process.
    "We've always been very transparent in sharing the results of our research," Ng says.

    "And I just want to stress that we have full confidence in our vaccine as it's been approved by regulatory agencies in over 20 countries."
    In hindsight, Ng says, Sanofi wouldn't do anything differently with the development of the vaccine: "No, we have been very, very close to the research community, working closely with them over the last 20 years in the effort to find a solution for public health needs."

    The repercussions
    In April, the Philippine government indicted 14 government officials over the deaths of 10 children who received the Dengvaxia vaccine. The government said the officials acted with "undue haste" in procuring the vaccine and launching the mass immunization campaign. The Philippine Department of Justice said the campaign started before the clinical trials were finished

    In some instances children were given the vaccine by untrained health workers and allegedly without a proper physical beforehand. Some children allegedly had preexisting medical conditions that made the immunization dangerous. But these children were still inoculated, the government found.

    Six Sanofi officials were also indicted for not properly helping children who had serious reactions to the shot. Sanofi disputes this and other allegations, adding in a written statement to NPR:
    "We strongly disagree with the DOJ's findings made against Sanofi's officials (current and past) and we will vigorously defend them. There is no clinical evidence that any reported fatalities were causally related to vaccination.

    "We diligently monitor the safety of people participating in clinical studies. We are also performing pharmacovigilance activities and continuously monitoring the safety profile of the vaccine in a real-world setting, including the Philippines."
    Regardless of how these trials turn out, the debacle in the Philippines offers a key lesson for governments and manufacturers when it comes to approving and selling new vaccines: Slow down, says physician and bioethicist Keymanthri Moodley. Mistakes with vaccines can erode the public's trust and have long-term consequences for the health of an entire country.
    "When a vaccine goes wrong, it creates fear and anxiety in terms of the public, especially the parents," says Moodley, who directs the Centre for Medical Ethics & Law at Stellenbosch University in South Africa.

    "That fear can impact negatively on the established immune programs that are actually safe and work very well."
    Since the Dengvaxia controversy, the confidence in vaccines among Philippine parents has plummeted from 82% in 2015 to only 21% in 2018, a recent study found. Over that same time span, the proportion of parents who strongly believe vaccines are important has fallen from 93% to 32%.

    As result, vaccine coverage for childhood diseases in the Philippines, such as the measles, has dropped, WHO says. And the Philippines is now facing a large measles outbreak, with more than 26,000 cases and more than 355 deaths during 2019.

    Here in the U.S., the approval of the vaccine - to be used in Puerto Rico, U.S. British Virgin Islands and Guam - comes with an important restriction: Doctors must have proof of a prior dengue infection to ensure the vaccine will not pose any risks to the child. That's a safeguard Philippine families never had.

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

    This is my rant tonight.

    I referenced a Saturday Night Live video portraying Jenny Mccarthy

    "Vaccinations are a personal liberty issue
    Then let them go extinct"

    This is quite a powerful meme. if one does not vaccinate, will one go extinct? It strikes a deep collective fear.

    But what are we DOING in the name of survival? IMO we are violating a fundamental law of health... The human psyche is a modulator of health which supercedes all else. If one is well in mind, the body follows.

    Maybe we cannot really live well on any level personal or collective) when the mind is sickened? IThere a numerous ways we can socially engineer sick minds.
    We have all read so much about the problem from so many angles.

    Regarding forced vaccination's effects, we must face the psychic implications of this barbaric act. Violence in the name of care is abuse. What is happening to people? Paul Offit himself acknowledges what happens.



    I cannot imagine anyone willingly choosing vaccination without believing in its power.
    What happens when we realize how little efficacy they have?
    What happens when we realize we submitted to violence for no good cause?
    What if we tyhen see ourselves and loved ones injured and ill and suspect it is related?
    What happens if we have an open heart and feel the hurt we subjected others to experience?

    The evidence is in that all these issues are REAL.
    What should we do?

    What if we stop capitulating to this assault and protect our loved ones with 100% effort. IMO feeling humans MUST. Otherwise, we will be torn up by cooperating in evil... the evil of inflicting pain deliberately and for no reason.

    To choose to vaccinate is different from feeling forced to be vaccinated.
    Is FORCED vaccination inhumane?
    Is the good it provides really tHAT good?
    What if vaccines are just NO GOOD at all?

    How bad does an experience have to be traumatize? How would multiple visits to a doctor's office where one is painfully and forcedly injected with substances that creates an inflammatory reaction qualify?

    In contrast, a childhood disease is a gradual onset of some body response. The child is not forcedly touched with a needle in a context of being overpowered. Chronic assault is IMO one of the hidden horrors of THIS unnecessary procedure.

    IMO it is traumatizing to be injected with just one needle because children have no choice when their parents force them (because THEY believe they should/must choose).

    I remember being forced to have a shot at about 4 or so and I screamed and tried desperately to run away. I felt heart broken that no one could help me with my terror. I felt rage at my inability to escape. That may not be uncommon. Afterwards I always hated needles. I also became suddenly fat afterwards. I also did not have a good kindergarten experience, feeling distrustful and felt fear and worry about what could happen from strangers. No it wasn't just because of vaccination but that day in the office of the pediatrician was a lasting awful feeling. I do think it confirmed a sense of the world being scary and that I was not powerful.

    This is probably why this issue of forced vaccination makes me boiling mad. I went into nursing and hated inflicting pain. When nurses were asked to submit to the flu shot, I left nursing in outrage at this mad system. Being willing to force people to agree to a NOCEBO appeared insane.

    If one does not willingly ask for anything, feeling it will harm, it is a nocebo. Children feel that a needle is a nocebo because they cry and fight.

    Unwittingly until awakened, parents become the instrument of a kind of abuse. If one is ignorant, one can live with that, based on beliefs that give one reassurance of the necessity. One can even live with unintended consequences.

    Parents feel they must agree or believe that the good is more than the evil. To watch one's child struggle and cry is in itself traumatizing. But to acknowledge that one agreed to this in vain means cognitive dissonance.
    That is IMO why parents MUST stay in denial.

    Quote “Gabor Maté, M.D., skillfully blends recent advances in biomedicine with the personal stories of his patients to provide empowering insights into how deeply developmental experiences shape our health, behavior, attitudes, and relationships. A must read.”

    —Bruce Lipton, Ph.D., author of The Biology of Belief
    Quote A recurring theme in Maté’s books is the impact of a person’s childhood on their mental and physical health through neurological and psychological mechanisms, which he connects with the need for social change.
    The impact of childhood adversity is noted in When the Body Says No: Understanding the Stress-Disease Connection. He notes that early experiences have a key role in shaping a person’s perceptions of the world and others, and in stress physiology, factors that affect the person’s health later on. He says that emotional patterns ingrained in childhood live in the memory of cells and the brain and appear in interpersonal interactions. He describes the impact of ‘adverse childhood experiences’ or ACEs (e.g. a child being abused, violence in the family, a jailed parent, extreme stress of poverty, a rancorous divorce, an addict parent, etc.) on how people live their lives and their risk of addiction and mental and physical illnesses, as seen in a number of U.S.-based Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) studies. Having a number of ACEs exponentially increases a person’s chances of becoming an addict later on e.g. a male child with six ACEs has a 4,600% or 46-fold increase in risk. ACEs also exponentially increase the risk of diseases e.g. cancer, high blood pressure, heart disease, etc. and also suicide and early death.
    The forced vaccine shot has shown itself as a technology which agrees to "unavoidable" pain and suffering. The assault undermines the integrity of the body. The practice is a cumulative insult of trauma.

    Yeah, I may be stretching a point way outside bounds.

    In an enlightened world, we begin to know and own where we agreed small acts of "for your own good" torture has a place in raising our children. We learn how as adults, we are willing to subdue our neighbor's freedom in the name of "welfare". We see how we may accept this as normal life. How many shots does it take till we know that too much love of human beings has died? It is more than the shot itself, it is the AGREEMENT that we choose this route to honoring "health".

    It is our loss and our stupidity that needs to addressed. It is sickening and we must choose liberty for ourselves and for those we can protect when we know. If we go along in fear and allow terror to those we love, the nocebo will kill us.

    IMO but not alone in wondering how we may repent for this sin against ourselves. IMO it touches the very core of the ideal of personal liberty. IMO we have the essential right as beings to choose freely what happens to our body.

    Quote CDC Warns California Adults To Get New Measles Vaccine
    california measles vaccine adults
    POSTED BY: VAXXTER STAFF 05/04/2019

    The CDC is telling California adults in high-risk measles areas that they may need to get another measles shot. Two areas the CDC notes as high risks are UCLA or California State University, Los Angeles.

    They claim that adults before 1957, prior to the release of the measles vaccine, likely have natural immunity. But those adults born between 1957 and 1989 may not be so fortunate. The CDC says they may have received a weaker, single dose that won’t help them today.

    “Most adults are protected against measles, that’s what the science says,” Dr. Nancy Messonnier, the director of the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, said in a teleconference April 29, “including people who were born before the measles vaccine was recommended and even people who only got a single dose of measles.”

    The CDC is also concerned that many adults may not have access to childhood medical records. Some adults may have received the more potent version, but the lack of medical records means they can’t validate such.
    This means the CDC will begin focusing on adult vaccination efforts, starting with international travelers and those who work in the healthcare industry. Additionally, the CDC wants adults to get a measles booster shot if they live near measles outbreak areas. Of the three reported measles cases in the Sacramento area, all were from the same family that previously traveled overseas.
    “Health care workers are held to a higher standard,” said Dr. Dean Blumberg, chief of pediatric infectious diseases at UC Davis Children’s Hospital. “They could potentially expose patients.”

    UK Health Secretary Wants Mandatory Vaccines, Says Anti-Vaxxers ‘Have Blood On Their Hands’
    matt hancock vaccines
    POSTED BY: VAXXTER STAFF 05/05/2019

    A British parliament member is calling out those who speak against vaccines saying “they have blood on their hands.” The comments come amid fears that world governments could evoke “emergency mandatory vaccine mandates,” something the politician hints at supporting.

    Matt Hancock says he “won’t rule out” compulsory vaccines. The Health Secretary, speaking on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, said, “I do think we need to consider all options. Failure to vaccinate when there isn’t a good reason is wrong. Those people who campaign against vaccination are campaigning against science. The science is settled.”

    Newly released Unicef statistics show that over half a million kids in the U.K. did not receive a measles vaccine between 2010 and 2017. Many are blaming anti-vaccine messages conveyed on social media as the culprit.

    “I don’t want to have to reach the point of compulsory vaccination, but I will rule nothing out. I don’t want to reach that point and I don’t think we are near there, but there is a huge programme of work to increase the proportion of children that are vaccinated.” Hancock went on to say.

    “If you don’t vaccinate your children it is not only your child that is at risk, it is also other children, including children who for medical reasons can’t be vaccinated. Vaccination is good for you, good for your child, good for your neighbour and your community.”

    Hancock took an especially critical stance last month when he said, “Those who have promoted the anti-vaccination myth are morally reprehensible, deeply irresponsible and have blood on their hands.”

    The war to censor social media accounts is heating up all over the world.

    Cease & Desist Letter Issued to Oregon Nurses Association After Fraudulent Communications Discovered
    May 4, 2019
    For Immediate Release
    Contact: media@oregoniansformedicalfreedom.com
    Printable PDF: Download

    by Oregonians for Medical Freedom
    Oregon “Measles Outbreak” of 14 Cases Over but Big Pharma Interests Want Mandatory Vaccinations of Children Using False Information

    "A Cease and Desist letter was issued on behalf of Oregonians for Medical Freedom to the Oregon Nurses Association (ONA), by Luke D. Miller, part of the legal counsel team for OFMF, who are still awaiting a formal response. The letter states that ONA may have engaged in unlawful activities in violation of Oregon’s Lobbying Regulation pursuant to ORS 171.764, and may also have committed certain defamatory activities such as Libel, Libel per se, and False Light.

    Thursday in a press release calling out more than a dozen pieces of mis- or disinformation claims being used by proponents to lobby in favor of House Bill 3063, OFMF outlined the ONA spread of disinformation including proof of their dissemination of fraudulent email communications that had been distributed to countless contacts and ONA members publicly trying to gather support for the proposed vaccine mandate.

    The ONA, one of the largest lobbying efforts pushing for the passage of HB 3063, sent their fraudulent e-mail on Tuesday, April 30th, that mislead their members stating, “this bill DOES NOT take away a parents’ rights to make decisions about their children’s healthcare—it only requires that children be vaccinated against measles in order to attend school to protect the health of other students, teachers, staff, and our community.”

    The Cease and Desist letter to ONA demanded (1) for an immediate cease and desist disseminating any such false statements and/or misstatements of material fact regarding the Vaccine Mandate; (2) that ONA issues a public retraction of the April 30, 2019, e-mail communication; and (3) that ONA publicly apologizes to Oregonians for Medical Freedom and the other opponents of the Vaccine Mandate.

    The ONA is one of the largest campaign donors to legislators who have sponsored Oregon House Bill 3063. Every single co-sponsor but one has received combined a total of $255,000 in campaign donations from the ONA. Due to an Oregon Supreme Court decision in 1997, Oregon is one of a handful of states that does not limit campaign contributions.

    Amber Sims, with Oregonians for Medical Freedom said,

    “the Oregon Nurses Association, an organization which lists ‘integrity’ as a core value, should apologize to legislators and the public. Oregonians across the state want to know that the people that they elect will represent their best interests, and make informed decisions with factually accurate information. When respected professional associations make misleading statements of fact, with the intent to influence votes that would benefit their interests, we hope they would take responsibility to immediately correct this false information.”

    “It concerns me greatly that the association I support financially is spreading fear and inaccurate information,” said Kristy Torpey RN, BSN. “There are potentially hundreds of nurses who have children with disabilities or chose to give vaccinations on an alternative schedule. They will be heavily impacted by this legislation and have no choice but to leave the workforce. The language of this bill violates the Nurse’s Code of Ethics. It’s antithetical to all that ONA stands for and I will be submitting a request to cancel my membership due to their actions.”

    “ONA caused the Fraudulent E-mail to be delivered which contains numerous false statements and/or misrepresentations of material fact regarding the Vaccine Mandate. As a result, ONA may be liable for substantial damages and/or government sanctions which, in turn, could place ONA’s tax exempt status with the IRS in jeopardy,” part of the letter reads.

    The list of false statements or misrepresentations of “material fact” regarding HB 3063 included the following “most egregious” examples stated from the letter:

    The ONA Fraudulent Email claims that the Vaccine Mandate “DOES NOT take away a parents’ rights to make decisions about their children’s healthcare . . .” which is patently false. The Vaccine Mandate removes specific mechanisms, such as the philosophical and religious exemptions, by which parents may opt out of certain vaccinations, substantially restricting every parent’s right to make significant decisions about their children’s healthcare. There are numerous medical reasons why a parent may choose to exercise their philosophical or religious right to opt out and/or delay certain vaccines.
    Likewise, the Fraudulent E-mail claims the Vaccine Mandate “only requires that children be vaccinated against measles in order to attend school . . .” which again is patently false. The Vaccine Mandate requires students to be fully compliant with five (5) DTaP vaccines, four (4) Polio vaccines, one (1) Varicellavaccine, two (2) MMR vaccines, three (3) Hepatitis B vaccines, and two (2) Hepatitis A vaccines, as a condition to attend Oregon schools, online school-related functions, school-related sports and other school-related activities, as well as almost all state certified child care facilities. The Vaccine Mandate is far more sweeping than ONA claims.
    Furthermore, the Fraudulent E-mail claims “7.5% of children in Kindergarten are unvaccinated” which again is patently false. According to OHA data, 7.5% of Oregon kindergarteners merely file an exemption form from certain vaccines—making the vast majority of the referenced 7.5% number only partially vaccinated—not unvaccinated as claimed. In reality, only 2.6% of students throughout all of K-12 education are truly unvaccinated.
    Additionally, the Fraudulent E-mail claims that “No credible scientific study has ever found a link between autism and vaccines” which again is patently false. There is numerous credible scientific evidence that there is a link between vaccines and a diagnosis of autism. In a sworn affidavit under penalty of perjury, Dr. Andrew Zimmerman of John Hopkins University, the federal government’s top expert witness during a 2007 vaccine case, freely admitted that vaccinations could cause autism in some children. To claim there is no “credible” science on the matter strains credulity itself.
    Finally, the Fraudulent E-mail claims that “By eliminating the non-medical exemption from school immunization law, Oregon can increase vaccination rates and save lives” which again is patently false. The Vaccine Mandate puts our most vulnerable children at risk of debilitating vaccine injury. For example, medical exemptions are extremely difficult to obtain and are not currently approved for children who qualify based on family history of seizures and autoimmune disorders, which again, are affecting our children at near epidemic rates. Without the ability to access the philosophical and religious exemptions, many children who do not meet the rigorous medical exemption criteria will be critically injured as a result of the Vaccine Mandate.
    The cease and desist letter ends with, “If ONA complies with Oregonians for Medical Freedom’s demands, we will not seek to file a complaint with the Oregon Government Ethics Commission pursuant to ORS 171.125, and/or seek court intervention. However, should ONA not comply and/or continue to propagate the same or additional false statements and/or misrepresentations of material fact regarding the Vaccine Mandate, we will not limit ourselves to seek redress for ONA’s activities.”

    ************************************************** **************Measles Outbreak Declared Over, Yet Special Interests Drive Misinformation Spread Around Capitol

    by Oregonians for Medical Freedom

    While the Vancouver-area measles outbreak has been declared over, with only 14 cases in total reported to Oregon (with only four linked to the Clark Country outbreak), misinformation has been rapidly spreading throughout the Capitol and into town hall meetings as special interests spread inaccurate information to distort support for House Bill 3063.

    If passed, HB 3063 would remove personal belief exemptions for vaccines currently on the recommended schedule.

    The bill would ban access to any child aged six weeks through 12th grade from attending a licensed childcare facility, preschool, public, private or charter school, even if the child is missing just one of the more than 30 doses of vaccines.

    Children currently on Individualized Education Plans (IEP’s) and students with disabilities, who require additional services, would also be denied free and appropriate education if not up-to-date on all vaccines.

    Under HB 3063, children would also be barred from all after-school sports, extracurricular activities and per the bill language would not be allowed to be in the same space as “other individuals” which remains unclear with poorly written language for the intent of the bill.

    HB 3063 would negatively impact 38,000 children and create undue hardship for families—including single and low-income households—across the state of Oregon who will be denied access to childcare and the ability to receive a public or private education with their peers and neighbors unless they comply.

    Instead, families would be forced to homeschool, attend an isolating and also home-bound online public school or move out of state. For single parent households and those who are self-employed, this bill leaves little room to exercise choice and forces coercion to comply or the loss of potential income, jeopardizing housing and important expenditures to maintain stability.

    Currently, there are 47 states that allow for a religious or personal belief exemption to a vaccine in addition to medical exemptions. If HB 3063 passes, Oregon would become the fourth state to eliminate all ability to make personal belief and religious choices about vaccines, leaving parents who need their child to attend school or daycare no choice unless they qualify for the very narrowly defined medical exemption.

    The coercive nature of holding a child’s education hostage removes a family’s full right to free and informed consent over private medical decisions that should be made individually with their physicians. Under the -53 amendment, the American Council on Immunization Practices (ACIP) is the governing body that defines the guidelines for determining what qualifies as medical exemption parameters.

    ● Misinformation that there is a statewide emergency in Oregon and HB 3063 warrants an emergency clause for the “preservation of the public peace, health and safety” in order to remove access to education when real crises go on without much public notice or adequate attention:

    Youth suicide rates: in 2017, 107 youth ages 10 to 24 years died by suicide in Oregon, making suicide the second leading cause of death (behind unintentional death) among youth in that age bracket.
    Youth homelessness: each year, thousands of youth across Oregon are homeless and unaccompanied, struggling to survive without a safe, stable place to live. Youth homelessness is a significant problem, but, according to an Oregon Department of Human Services Homeless Youth Advisory Committee review, the issue remains largely below the radar of public concern or legislative action and has large gaps in information, resources, capacity, and political will that have contributed to this growing crisis.
    Oregon lacks adequate emergency mental health care services for youth and adults. Oregon lawmakers are considering granting $3.3 million of taxpayer money to study the problem with SB 140, which appropriates all funds to the General Fund to OHA to administer and provide grants for the Emergency Department Boarding Pilot Project, with “no plans to solve it” according to an article in the Salem Reporter last week.
    The grave treatment of children under state custody, which has resulted in a federal class-action lawsuit alleging that Oregon’s Department of Human Services has sent kids to homeless shelters and juvenile detention centers and failed to protect them from dangerous situations in known abusive or neglectful homes.
    ● Misinformation about what constitutes as a “safe” and appropriate catch-up vaccine schedule as was shared in testimony (not under oath) by Dr. Paul Cieslak of the Oregon Health Authority (OHA), as exposed by investigative journalist Daniel Forbes in his article, State Vaccine Doctor Feeds Oregon Lawmakers Bunk; CDC, Experts Argue For Longer Intervals For 21 Forced Shots.

    ● Misinformation about the bill’s allowance for broader reasons to simply allow doctors to write Medical Exemptions under the adopted -53 Amendment that has been stated by many legislators publicly and privately as to why they would vote yes for the bill. However, the same stringent and narrow parameters still apply and do not include protections for Oregon’s most vulnerable, including for children whose families have already suffered from vaccine injury, have predisposed genetic conditions that make them more susceptible to vaccine injury, for children who hold Independent Education Plans (IEPs) or who have a disability, conditions with which doctors may wish to write medical exemptions for, but, despite Governor Kate Brown saying in a press conference held Monday afternoon with Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum, “that it’s critically important for physicians and the medical community to be able to provide advice to their patients, and 3063 does not restrict that,” what Brown is not communicating with the press is that Amendment -53 ADDED burdensome steps to the current medical exemption process, placing greater difficulty, not less, on families requiring them to file annually and schools required to submit them bi-monthly. Steps one through three below are the current medical exemption steps, with -53 adding an additional four steps (*) to the process WITHOUT changing current statutes on exemptions:

    Requires Doctors to write MEs based on *ACIP guidelines.
    Schools to send MEs to Public Health *-53 requires every two weeks.
    Public Health to review MEs and can rescind or sends to OHA for tracking.
    OHA sends MEs to pertinent medical boards for ND, MD or NP. *HB 3063 requires tracking doctor now.
    Medical Boards review MEs and “grant” based on reasonable interpretation to ACIP’s narrow guidelines. *Medical Boards to report to OHA.
    OHA to send annual ME reports to Legislature.
    HB 3063 would require families start the ME process all over again from steps 1-5 EVERY SINGLE YEAR.
    Obtaining an ME will take significant resources, time and effort for families to find a doctor who is willing to write a medical exemption with the added scrutiny. The outlined process requires resources many of our most vulnerable citizens lack. Will the Oregon Health Plan (OHP) pay for the necessary screening and reimburse doctors for work associated with screening and yearly medical exemption appointments?



    ● Misinformation that HB 3063 not impact schools financially or negatively. Wrong, this bill will create financial strain and cause students to disenroll in private schools, charter schools as well as public schools across the state. This massive drop in enrollment will cause small private schools to close, defund school budgets and teachers and staff members will lose jobs. As reported in the LA Times, the Los Angeles Unified School District enrollment dropped even more than anticipated in 2017, exacerbating existing budget problems beyond the anticipated enrollment drop of 2.1% to an actual drop of 2.55%, the same year that California Senate Bill 277—the mandatory vaccine bill that passed—went into full effect. The article reports that the small percentage difference translated into the loss of an additional 5,400 students, with the decline representing an unexpected loss of $17 million more removed from district funding.

    ● Disinformation: the Oregon Nurses Association (ONA), one of the largest lobbying efforts pushing for the passage of HB 3063, disseminated a fraudulent email on Tuesday, April 30th that lied their members that “this bill DOES NOT take away a parents’ rights to make decisions about their children’s healthcare—it only requires that children be vaccinated against measles in order to attend school to protect the health of other students, teachers, staff, and our community.” OFMF sent a Cease and Desist letter to ONA Thursday demanding (1) for an immediate cease and desist disseminating any such false statements and/or misstatements of material fact regarding the Vaccine Mandate; (2) that ONA issues a public retraction of the April 30, 2019, e-mail communication; and (3) that ONA publicly apologizes to Oregonians for Medical Freedom and the other opponents of the Vaccine Mandate.

    FACT: House Bill 3063 would require students to be fully compliant with 5 DTaP vaccines, 4 Polio vaccines, 1 Varicella vaccine, 2 MMR vaccines, 3 Hepatitis B vaccines, and 2 Hepatitis A vaccines as a condition to attend school, online school-related functions, and school-related sports and other school-related activities.

    ● Missing information: OHA confirmed in a response to an April 22 press release sent from Senator Dennis Linthicum, R-Klamath Falls, that they have not conducted lab testing on measles cases in Oregon to distinguish vaccine-strain and wild-type measles infection, despite the first cases being reported months ago. Genotype lab testing measles cases is important since we’ve had at least two reported cases of children with measles in the United States this year that lab testing confirmed were vaccine-strain measles virus. If any reported cases in Oregon were vaccine-strain measles, then that means the vaccinated could be contagious and spreading measles.

    ● Misinformation that physicians can simply “write a note” for a medical exemption. On Sunday, Oregon mother Tkeisha Wydro posted a video clip to Twitter from Corvallis Democratic state Sen. Sara Gelser’s town hall event that included these recorded statements:

    “I talked to the sponsors of the bill, that amendment will allow a physician to make that decision, they will not have to go justify that to the health authorities, local or state, that physician would make that decision. It should not be hard to find a physician who will look at the child’s needs and write a medical exemption or look at the child’s sibling had a bad reaction to a vaccine. Or children who have a medical diagnosis to not be able to get one.”

    Jennifer Margulis, Ph.D., award-winning science journalist wrote a response to Gelser,

    “Honorable Senator Gelser: you are being completely misled and you are inadvertently lying to your constituents. You wrote something that is verifiably FALSE in regards to HB 3063 amendments on Twitter and FB. ‘Question: Can a medical practitioner consider a child or a child’s sibling’s prior bad reaction to a vaccine? {to write a medical exemption} Answer: Yes. The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices lists prior bad reactions of a child or a child’s sibling or family member as a precaution that may be considered by a medical practitioner.’ FALSE. This is completely wrong. ACIP does NOT consider sibling reactions to a vaccine a precaution. Nowhere does a family history of a vaccine reaction get discussed. There’s some ‘family history’ of immunosuppression or seizures, but NOTHING about a family member having a vaccine reaction as a valid contraindication. Senator Gelser, you are sadly and dangerously mistaken, which is why the amendment referencing ACIP guidelines makes what was already a bad bill even **WORSE.** If your sibling dies from a vaccine, ACIP says you still get vaccinated. What parent or physician on planet Earth would do that?”

    ● Misinformation about how the law would be interpreted for partially or unvaccinated siblings or peers who would “share space.” In Wednesday’s hearing at the Subcommittee on Human Services hearing Elizabeth Steiner Hayward, D-Beaverton, said it was “never meant to be interpreted that way,” however, State Rep. Cedric Hayden, R-Roseburg, points out that even Legislative Counsel testified on February 28 that it would in fact seek to prevent children who are not fully-vaccinated from attending a school choir performance, play or sports game for their fully-vaccinated siblings.

    ● Misinformation that vaccine injury is “rare” and “one in a million.” A 2011 Harvard Pilgrim Health study commissioned by the CDC found that less than 1% of vaccine adverse events were ever reported to the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System. VAERS data reports for Oregon in 2018 that there were 579 total adverse reactions reported including four deaths, 16 disabilities, four life-threatening reactions and 19 hospitalizations. Taking into account the Harvard Pilgrim Health study, the total number of reactions could be under reported by as much as 99%. To date, the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) has paid out over $4.1 billionin settled cases for vaccine injury and death since 1988, including over $131 million to vaccine injury victims from January 1, 2019, to April 1, 2019.

    ● Misinformation from state Rep. Mitch Greenlick, D-Portland, that thousands of Oregon parents, educators, physicians, professionals, grandparents and citizens obtain their research from “Russian bots” for information used to make judicious choices alongside their family physicians on vaccination decisions for their children. Saying that millions of parents nationwide who do their own research and may decide to delay or forgo some vaccines are influenced by “Russian bots” is incredulous.

    ● Misinformation that online schooling is an appropriate replacement for traditional schooling for all students: online schools in Oregon have an average graduation rate of 48 percent for students at online charters who graduated on time in 2016. That’s nearly 30 points below a state average. Additionally, there is an existing three percent cap rate for the percentage of students per county that can attend an online school, and in many counties there is already a long waiting list for students. A 2011 report published by the Center for Research on Education Outcomes looked at eight online charter schools in Pennsylvania and found that students performed worse in reading and math than did their peers at traditional schools.

    ● Misinformation that legislators are listening and taking constituent concerns seriously or feel that parents should have the right to make private medical decisions together with their physicians for their families. Despite public commentary to the contrary, Rep. Tiffany Mitchell, D-Astoria, rejected flowers from vaccine injured families on March 7, when Oregonians for Medical Freedom encouraged families with vaccine injuries to go and talk to supporters of this bill and members of the House Committee on Health Care. During the work session for HB 3063 on March 14, Mitchell, in the same breath said,

    “I apologize and feel bad that it’s going to be particularly burdensome for some folks, but this is about making sure that we [lawmakers] protect the health of everybody.”

    ● Misinformation that town halls are places where the public is welcome for all, because when mothers and fathers showed up to a town hall this past Saturday Sen. Chuck RIley, D-Hillsboro, disallowed them from speaking about HB 3063 and opened his town hall declaring that he would talk about any other issues, just not vaccines. Out of 30 people who wanted to speak about HB 3063, only three wanted to talk about issues other than the bill, the other 27 were blown off, according to Carssa Bonham and other who took to doing Facebook Live video after their direct experience of being silenced.

    ● Misinformation about what true informed consent really is, according to Cornell University Law’s legal definition: an agreement to do something or to allow something to happen, made with complete knowledge of all relevant facts, such as the risks involved or any available alternatives. For example, a patient may give informed consent to medical treatment only after the health care professional has disclosed all possible risks involved in accepting or rejecting the treatment. A health care provider or facility may be held responsible for an injury caused by an undisclosed risk. In fact, OHA’s Patrick Allen and Dr. Cieslak testified against an earlier introduced Senate Bill (SB 649) “Relating to ingredients in vaccines” that would improve access to information and support patients with more complete informed consent that would have required OHA to publish all vaccine manufacturer information online and accessible from a simple QR code on a handout provided to patients.

    ● Misinformation that homeschooling families will not be impacted by HB 3063. This is false: homeschooling families that utilize homeschooling co-ops will not longer be able to utilize them, as co-ops are in fact declared as part of the restrictions placed in HB 3063.

    ● Misinformation that vaccine manufacturers can be sued: in 1986 Congress agreed to indemnify vaccine manufacturers from and against civil liability for injury or death related to a vaccine as part of the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA).

    ● Misinformation that vaccine manufacturers should not be scrutinized: all four pharmaceutical companies who manufacture the 72 childhood vaccine doses are convicted felons who have collectively paid over $35 billion over the past decade in civil and criminal penalties for bribing, extorting, and lying to doctors and defrauding regulators to promote other pharmaceutical products.

    Given the hypocrisy that mothers and fathers across America who hold deep concerns for a one-size-fits-all vaccination schedule for their children are painted as “misinformed,” “uneducated” or “hysterical” “anti-vaxxers” it’s hypocritical when lawmakers are not themselves seeking out additional, non-industry supplied information on such a contentious issue that has such far-reaching impacts.

    “Lawmakers should never, ever vote to pass industry-written laws, especially when they are based on deliberate misinformation campaigns spread by those either complicit or even unknowingly carrying out the bidding of convicted corporatists and corrupt special interests,” said Charissa Hatten, a Bend mother who says she is outraged and disgusted with the way constituents have been shut out of the legislative process.

    “Sen. Steiner Hayward and Rep. Cheri Helt represent the worst of both parties. We should be their priority, and not have our families kicked to the curb at the behest of Pharma.”

    “I’m a Democrat, I’m a mom and I hate this bill. They are attacking our choice, they are waging a war on our children. I shouldn’t have to come to the Capitol and beg for my child’s life like we’re on some dystopian film,” said Suzanne Monaco, another mother who has been at the Capitol frequently to plead with proponents of the bill. “People keep saying ‘from what I’ve been told,’ or ‘the intention of the bill,’ but that’s not how we legislate. That’s like a cult. Blind acceptance of peddled disinformation. This bill has caused me to leave the Democratic Party. I changed my voter registration last week after walking out of the work session as I was so disgusted by the lack of not caring. If they genuinely cared, they would support measures for better vaccine safety, not push bills that sweep vaccine injury under the rug. There are just too many legislators who are only listening to industry-conflicted proponents and not to the will of people who actually elected them!”

    “I’ve uncovered total corruption and collusion through FOIA requests and I’m disgusted. Sen. Steiner Hayward lied. Her colleagues were specifically told that the medical exemption strict guidelines were going to be amended. They were not. This is known to the public and we have emails from constituents and others who have contacted these legislators showing that they were told incorrect information and by whom. Sen. Steiner Hayward did not expand the medical exemption process, instead she’s changed the substance and created even more burdensome steps to get a medical exemption requiring it to be done annually. Her employer, OHSU is currently in the process of making their own vaccines. This legislation is a clear conflict of interest for her and we have yet to see her disclose that—we need the truth,” said children’s advocate Brittany Ruiz, who has helped save children from the state’s broken foster system. “We are being subjected to cruelty with our state lawmakers pursuing legislation not to protect people, but to protect profiteers. We must separate Pharma and state.”

    Last Friday, HB 3063, with the -53 amendment was passed out from the Joint Committee on Ways and Means and will be voted on in a House Floor vote on Monday after it’s third reading. While the bill, as it is amended currently, does include the allowance for naturopathic doctors to write medical exemptions, it DOES NOT broaden the actual criteria for medical exemptions. The bill creates new sections of law which authorizes the Medical Board, Nursing Board, and Naturopathic Board to review medical exemptions, it does NOT DELETE the existing sections of law that require the local health department to provide a secondary evaluation of the records to determine compliance with section 1 of ORS 433.267. Sections 4,5,6,7 and 8 of ORS 433.2676 remain unchanged.

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

    Quote Posted by Bob (here)
    I am still wondering what we are seeing in Boulder/Broomfield Colorado - it appears to be mumps like (young person 33 years of age), and the doctors in a major health center keep sending her home with in essence "aspirin" and call us in the morning if it gets worse. It's gotten worse with fluid now coming out of her ears.. WFT ?? She's been vaccinated years ago as a kid with the MMR vaccine.
    The update on what's happening with this young lady.. She was being strangled by her neck's hyper inflamed lymph nodes.. (These https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/324105.php are responsible for reacting to foreign proteins that the immune system recognizes as "must be eliminated" (at all costs) )

    The person had the MMR vaccine. The body apparently reacted violently to the "infectious exposure" most likely to mumps (the "mumps virus" - it is an RNA virus, Rubulavirus. Rubulavirus is within the genus Paramyxovirus and is a member of the family Paramyxoviridae.

    Whenever anything seems to be out-of-the-norm with medical issues, I personally take notice (I have a strong background in biochemistry).

    Researching the Paramyxoviridae family - these are negative-sense single-stranded RNA viruses responsible for a number of human and animal diseases.

    The Paramyxoviridae family of viruses are ripe for weaponization.

    Colorado is the home of numerous biological facilities. Boulder, Fort Collins, (and formerly Rocky Mountain Arsenal a biological and chemical weapons repository now a superfund site)..

    There have been odd viruses of the herbivores (bovine, deer, elk, sheep).. in Colorado and the midwest of the US - https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5894875/

    Here are some highlights - these can be zoonotic, meaning that they can transfer from animal to human and back again and be refined in the host and back again.. (swine flu, bird flu are examples of zoonotic viruses that frequent back and forth from animals to humans and back again)..

    Quote The paramyxovirus family comprises numerous viruses that collectively have a very broad host range, infecting vertebrates from fish to mammals, with transmission primarily via the respiratory route

    -- we will discuss what we know, as well as what we cannot yet predict, in terms of the factors anticipated to contribute to the likelihood of emergence of highly pathogenic zoonotic paramyxoviruses
    highly pathogenic...

    One receives a combo vaccine that covers some of the paramyxoviruses, and there is an immune system sensitivity then to a portion of the viral family... HOWEVER what if we are seeing some ultra-severe reactions in people because it is a different paramyxovirus that is infecting the person, something that has been either from a weaponized test, or from an animal (zoonotic) reservoir?

    Possibly the zoonotic possibility can be a source for viruses, coming from the animals in our environment?

    A normal reaction assuming NO contamination of the vaccine would hardly induce so a dastardly devastating inflammation of the lymph nodes threatening her life. Normal reaction that is would be a slight fever and some swelling and possibly a runny nose, a feeling of malaise and it would be over in a couple days..

    BUT if there were another strain of the paramyxoviruses surfacing.. I wonder.. Considering the biological labs in Colorado and the mid-west, I would not rule out weaponization, deliberate or an accidental release - her boyfriend reported a nasty sore throat a couple days before..

    What was their solution at first? Take out her adenoids and tonsils - until a more seasoned "specialist" said woah.. let's give her massive steroids to stop the inflammation reaction.. She reported almost over-night the swelling was reduced and she could breath again.. Did they deal with the infective agent that caused the lymph nodes to hyper-react?? Hardly.. The infection is still there, now being suppressed by immuno-suppressants..

    This I would keep an eye on... my hunch due to the immense amount of foreign student travel to Boulder CO, is that this may be a variant of a Nipah virus - Nipah virus is a zoonotic paramyxovirus that causes severe respiratory distress. The amount of people experiencing respiratory viruses in the US is very high this year. Nipah virus, emerged in Malaysia. It can cause brain inflammation (feeling very non-functional, stupid-like or dopey, and eventually death)..

    Just saying it is a vaccination reaction misses the deeper potential issues.. The vaccines can get one to become hypersensitive to other viruses which are not exactly specific to the immunizing agent... A virus in the same family could be a trigger for an immense reaction that doesn't seem to go away.. I seriously suspect we are seeing this type of reaction emerge planetwide.

    This push for mandatory vaccination is all about lining up all adults for forced vaccination by removing all philosophical and religious exemptions. It will be linked to "Real ID". We won't be able to do anything without our immunization status up to date. This is paraphrasing Del Bigtree today and it is exactly what I have suspected.

    If we can't stop states from passing these laws, then Del Bigtree (interview with the Lilian McDermott show) says this vaccine billion dollar per year industry will become a trillion dollar per year industry... THE MOST POWERFUL LOBBY IN THE WORLD PERIOD.

    I really suggest a listen at 23:32

    Last Friday, HB 3063, with the -53 amendment was passed out from the Joint Committee on Ways and Means and will be voted on in a House Floor vote on Monday after it’s third reading. While the bill, as it is amended currently, does include the allowance for naturopathic doctors to write medical exemptions, it DOES NOT broaden the actual criteria for medical exemptions. The bill creates new sections of law which authorizes the Medical Board, Nursing Board, and Naturopathic Board to review medical exemptions, it does NOT DELETE the existing sections of law that require the local health department to provide a secondary evaluation of the records to determine compliance with section 1 of ORS 433.267. Sections 4,5,6,7 and 8 of ORS 433.2676 remain unchanged.

    About Oregonians for Medical Freedom (OFMF)
    Oregonians for Medical Freedom is a grassroots non-partisan organization comprised of medical professionals, educators, parents, and citizens concerned with upholding the medical ethic of informed consent for all medical procedures and practice, including vaccination. While the topic of vaccine mandates is a very sensitive and emotional issue for many, OFMF wishes to make it very clear that our organization does not and will never tolerate harassment, discrimination, or threats of violence or death towards parties who disagree with our stance, be they politicians, professionals, or citizens.

    Quote Misguided doctors and bad information are fueling the return of measles

    Misguided doctors and bad information are fueling the return of measles
    A graduate student at the University of California, Irvine roamed the campus for three days while suffering from the measles, exposing students and the facility to the highly contagious disease, authorities said on Saturday. (Dreamstime / TNS)
    Before the creation of a vaccine in 1963, measles infected 3 to 4 million people a year in the United States. Nearly 50,000 measles patients each year required hospitalization, and the disease infected the brains of 1,000 and killed 400 to 500 people.

    Today, we shouldn’t be seeing any cases. The vaccine is widely available to all, regardless of ability to pay for it. And yet, this year has brought a major outbreak of measles, largely because of a scientifically unfounded fear of vaccinations in some communities. Of the 764 people so far infected, the great majority were unvaccinated. California reported 40 cases, many from unvaccinated travelers returning with the infection.

    In 2015, after a measles outbreak that started at Disneyland infected 117 Californians, most of them unvaccinated, the state passed SB 277 to abolish nonmedical exemptions for the vaccinations legally required for school enrollment. SB 277 raised immunization rates above 95% in the last two kindergarten classes, which may be blunting the spread of measles brought into our state. But we need further measures.

    Thirty years ago, measles outbreaks were caused by insufficient access to vaccines; today they are caused by misinformation.

    One problem has been that public universities have been slower to respond. The UC Regents finally adopted stricter vaccination requirements, but this year’s freshman class is the first to have been affected, which means most students came in under the old, laxer requirements. The California State University system issued a new vaccination policy in March that abolishes personal belief and religious exemptions, but again it was late in coming. As a consequence of the delayed response, hundreds of students had to be quarantined at UCLA and Cal State L.A. in response to measles exposures.

    Measles is not the only vaccine-preventable disease returning. A baby died of whooping cough in Orange County last month and another died in San Bernardino the previous July. These deaths recall that in 2010, California experienced a whooping cough outbreak that infected 9,120 people and killed 10 infants too young to be vaccinated. The disease spread mainly in communities with low vaccination rates.

    Community immunity, the shield that protects babies and others who cannot be vaccinated, requires that the people surrounding them at school and in their communities are vaccinated. Although the state-wide vaccination rate is improving, there are too many schools without this so-called herd immunity, because of vaccination rates below 90% and even below 50%.

    Some of the blame rests with unethical doctors, who are willing to take patients’ money and grant inappropriate medical exemptions to misinformed families, thereby putting other children at risk. A Voice of San Diego investigation of medical exemptions at San Diego Unified School District showed that almost a third were issued by one doctor who advertised medical exemptions. Two other physicians who issued large numbers of medical exemptions are on probation with the Medical Board of California.

    The state Legislature, of which I am a member, has an opportunity to greatly improve the situation. Senate Bill 276, sponsored by the California Medical Assn. and the California American Academy of Pediatrics, would require review by public health officials before medical exemptions from vaccination requirements are approved. It would also create a database of medical exemption requests so the state’s medical board can better investigate unethical physicians.

    Thirty years ago, measles outbreaks were caused by insufficient access to vaccines; today they are caused by misinformation and fueled by doctors who should know better. The World Health Organization recently declared vaccine refusal a global health threat, noting that it has fueled measles outbreaks and deaths around the world. Last year, Europe had 83,000 confirmed cases of measles and 72 deaths. And the U.S. is now at risk of joining the failed state of Venezuela as the only country in the Americas to lose its “measles elimination” status.

    But there is also cause for hope, as other states look to California’s success in limiting the spread of measles by considering legislation to abolish nonmedical exemptions. We should also keep pushing here to close loopholes and educate parents. We have the right to community immunity to keep all of us safe.

    Peter Aaby at the Symposium about Scientific Freedom, Copenhagen, 9 March 2019.

    Lecture: "WHO is the brain in the system - The sound of silence? A case study of how public health vaccinology deals with fundamental contradictions of current policy."

    Anthropologist, Dr Peter Aaby is credited for the discovery of non-specific effects of vaccines, leading the World Health Organization, WHO, to change its measles vaccine programme in the early 1990s.

    For almost 40 years, he has run the Bandim Health Project, a health and demographic surveillance system site that he established in Guinea-Bissau in 1978.

    This lecture is part of the Symposium about Scientific Freedom and the inauguration of the Institute for Scientific Freedom, which took place in Copenhagen, Denmark, 9 March 2019.

    World renowned Danish scientist Peter C Gøtzsche is the founder of the institute.

    The Institute’s primary area of focus is healthcare and the institute has three main visions:

    - All science should strive to be free from financial conflicts of interest.

    - All science should be published as soon as possible, and made freely accessible.

    - All scientific data, including study protocols, should be freely accessible, allowing others to do their own analyses.
    Most of you think we know what our vaccines are doing - we don't, Peter Aaby

    Bernie Sanders says 'Im sensitive to the fact that there are some families who disagree but the difficulty is if I have a kid who is suffering from an illness who is subjected to a kid who walks into a room without vaccines that could kill that child and that’s wrong.”
    But why be worried about the sick kid, If there kids are vaccinated why are they worried?
    We are the creators of our reality, what story are you creating?

    The best argument the pro vaxxers have is that "There is a clear decrease in number of cases with ailments that is targeted by vaccine. Thus vaccine is effective" So I try to beat them with " there is a huge increase in ailments that is not prevalent before vaccines" So when they go about researching, the best argument of pro vaxxers is already dead on that person.
