Medical Doctor to Maine Legislators: Diseases Persist Due to Vaccine Failure – Not Unvaccinated

Dr. Meryl Nass Testimony Before the Education Committee, Maine

Senator Millett, Representative Kornfield, and members of the Education and Cultural Affairs Committee:

My name is Dr. Meryl Nass. I am here today to oppose LD798 [3] and support LD987 [4].

The truth, not widely known, is that immunocompromised children are not catching diseases from their unvaccinated classmates, and they are not dying. Look at the numbers.

The diseases that persist and have been in the news remain a challenge, simply because the vaccines have a high failure rate–not because of the unvaccinated.

Pertussis is a problem, because the vaccine works poorly.

Similarly, Varicella (the virus that causes chickenpox and shingles) cannot be eradicated even with a 100% vaccination rate.

By contrast, influenza–the “flu”–kills about 120 children per year in the US, but again, the problem is that the flu vaccine is weak, and protection wears off quickly.

There has been so much talk about measles, but there has been only one case of measles in Maine in 20 years, from a visitor who did not spread it to anyone.

The numbers speak for themselves.  Maine children are already very well protected from those diseases for which we have good protection.  Most cases of ‘vaccine preventable’ diseases in Maine are the result of vaccine failures, not the result of unvaccinated children.

Maine’s current vaccination rates are excellent, and have successfully kept measles, mumps, rubella, diphtheria, polio and other diseases from circulating.

However, the unfortunate fact is that there are no vaccines for the infections that most jeopardize the immunocompromised. Most viruses, fungi and bacteria threatening the immunocompromised have no vaccines against them. Fortunately, the immunocompromised are not catching and dying from vaccine-preventable disease.

If your committee votes to remove exemptions from families that currently avoid immunizations — because parents believe their children are at high risk of an injury — you will cause more vaccine injuries, and possibly deaths.  But what you won’t do is prevent many infections in the rest of the population, since the major reason these diseases circulate is that the vaccines are simply not good enough.

Please look closely at the accurate numbers, from the federal and Maine CDC’s.  I am confident they will lead you to oppose this bill.
