The pertussis (whooping cough) vaccine is included as a component in "combination" shots that include tetanus and diphtheria (DPT, DTaP, Tdap) and some pertussis-containing shots now also include polio, hepatitis B and/or Haemophilus Influenza B (Hib). Whole cell pertussis vaccines in DPT, used in the U.S. from 1949 until the late ‘90s, were estimated to be between 30 and 85 percent effective, depending upon the type of DPT and vaccine manufacturer, with protection lasting only two to five years. The DPT vaccine was highly reactive and carried a high risk of serious allergic reactions and brain inflammation leading to permanent brain damage, as detailed in the groundbreaking 1985 book DPT: A Shot in the Dark, co-authored by Barbara Loe Fisher, cofounder of the National Vaccine Information Center. DTaP shots — which contain the less reactive acellular pertussis vaccine licensed for infants in the United States in 1996 — are given five times to children under age 6, with additional Tdap booster doses recommended for teenagers and adults. Since the late 1980s, CDC data shows that kindergarten children in the U.S. have maintained a high vaccination rate with four to five DPT shots and, today, more than 94 percent of kindergarten children have had four to five acellular DTaP vaccines. Very high pertussis vaccination rates in the U.S. and many other countries for the past several decades should be more than sufficient to achieve vaccine-acquired herd immunity, if the theory of vaccine-acquired herd immunity is correct. Yet, despite high vaccine coverage, statistics show reported whooping cough cases continue to rise. So, what’s really going on?
Despite a long absence of any official acknowledgement from the CDC, the general public has long-echoed the sentiments of Richard Horowitz, MD, author of Why Can’t I Get Better? Solving the Mystery of Lyme & Chronic Disease when he recently told Fox5 New York: “There is not even a doubt that we are in the middle of a full-blown epidemic in the United States.” The FDA has given the green light to test another Lyme disease vaccine on humans after two decades of failed attempts to develop an oxymoronic ‘safe vaccine’ to counter the disease. For now the question appears, as Lyme vaccine testing continues in the background, how hard and loud will government agencies, pharmaceutical-funded corporate media organs, and industry-captured medical journals bang the drums to manufacture a consensus for a predictably unsafe and ineffective vaccine?
Recently, the medical journal Vaccine has abruptly withdrawn a study that casts doubt on the safety of Merck’s Gardasil HPV vaccine, and by extension, the entire global push to mandate the shot by law to boys and girls. Are the nine authors of the recently rejected Gardasil study another chapter in the continued global vaccine research fraud? The study found that mice injected with Merck’s Gardasil HPV vaccine exhibited neurological and behavioral abnormalities. The study concluded to suggest curbing the current worldwide push to immunize all boys and girls with the HPV vaccine pending further investigation. The move by the journal Vaccine to put on hold and send for re-review the recent Gardasil HPV study is raising questions. Sources told Health Impact News that the pulled HPV study was temporarily removed at the request of Vaccine’s Editor-in-Chief Dr. Gregory Poland. In addition, Dr. Poland recommended the study be further reviewed. Commenting on these unusual events, one of the Gardasil HPV vaccine study’s authors, Dr. Shaw, told Health Impact News: “It is odd that an already peer-reviewed, revised after review, and then accepted study would be re-reviewed.”
"Marysue went from being a normal 9-year-old to basically a newborn child," explained Carla Grivna, the little girl's mother. For Carla and Steven Grivna they hold on to the memories of Marysue speaking two languages, her helping them in the kitchen and her love for playing outside. Marysue can now speak just 10 words including mommy and daddy. "The few words you have heard her say she has had to work hard to do," her mother explained. Marysue is also paralyzed. She is now fed through a tube and wears a diaper. On November 20, 2013, Marysue's parents took her to the doctor where she received her annual flu shot. It was typical of Marysue to awake by 7 a.m. and then go into wake her parents up. On the morning of November 26, 2013, she never made it to her parent's bedroom. "The look on her face was like help me, like she was scared but she couldn't respond to me," Carla recalled.
News highlighting the dangers of vaccines and medical kidnapping stories dominated our readership in 2015. Half of the top 10 stories were stories about vaccine dangers, and 4 of the top stories were Medical Kidnapping stories of families who lost their children to the medical system and Child Protection Services (CPS). Two of the vaccine stories, including the #1 most-read story in 2015, were stories about young women who reportedly had their lives destroyed by the Gardasil HPV vaccine. Here are the top 10 most read stories in 2015 on the Health Impact News network.
In a recent interview, obstetrician and gynecologist Dr. Wahome Ngare stated that: “The World Health Organization and other UN organizations together with eugenic organizations like the IPPF have had a population control agenda aimed at the lower developed countries (LDC) for a long time.” To back his powerful and damning statement, Dr. Ngare produced a document titled National Security Study Memorandum 200 (NSSM 200) – April 1974, outlining the U.S. government’s plans to lower the population in the following countries: “India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Nigeria, Mexico, Indonesia, Brazil, The Philippines, Thailand, Egypt, Turkey, Ethiopia, and Colombia.”
People who have adverse reactions to vaccinations are marginalized, minimized and denied just compensation for their injuries. We take a look at the personal story of a man just injured from a vaccination, who had ironically worked for the California Senator who authored SB277 that removes parental informed consent for vaccinations. And a former drug rep for Merck who sold vaccines tells why he would never vaccinate his children.
I think 2015 will be known as the year that the mainstream media completely sold their souls to the pharmaceutical industry to increase the market for the measles vaccine. From the Disneyland "outbreak" to the most recent story of how the first woman "to die from the measles in 12 years," we are told by the media that "anti-vaxxers" are to blame. Hence, many states are now rushing to pass legislation to mandate vaccines and completely remove any last vestiges of medical freedom in the United States. Medical tyranny is here, and it may not be long before the United States becomes a medical Police State. So if you want to know the truth regarding the woman who reportedly died from measles, you need to turn to the alternative media. Here are a few good articles giving the facts that the mainstream media is not reporting.
Whooping cough has made an astonishing comeback, with 2012 seeing nearly 50,000 infections in the U.S. (the most since 1955), and a death rate in infants three times that of the rest of the population. The dramatic resurgence has puzzled public health officials. A new study published in BMC Medicine by Santa Fe Institute Omidyar Fellows Ben Althouse and Sam Scarpino reveals the source of the outbreak -- vaccinated people who are infectious but who do not display the symptoms of whooping cough, suggesting that the number of people transmitting without symptoms may be many times greater than those transmitting with symptoms. Althouse and Scarpino used whopping cough case counts from the CDC, genomic data on the pertussis bacteria, and a detailed epidemiological model of whooping cough transmission to conclude that acellular vaccines may well have contributed to -- even exacerbated -- the recent pertussis outbreak by allowing infected individuals without symptoms to unknowingly spread pertussis multiple times in their lifetimes. "There could be millions of people out there with just a minor cough or no cough spreading this potentially fatal disease without knowing it," said Althouse. "The public health community should act now to better assess the true burden of pertussis infection." Will public health officials heed Dr. Althouse's advice, or will they instead ignore the research and continue blaming whooping cough outbreaks on unvaccinated children, while continuing to push laws to force children to receive this failed, dangerous vaccine?
Jessica Boehm of Cronkite News has done something very rare in journalism today: she has published the truth about one family's frustration in trying to sue the federal government and the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program for alleged injuries to their 14 year old daughter due to the Gardasil vaccine. Cronkite News is a digital media outlet that offers professional experiences to advanced students at Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication. When you visit the Cronkite News website, you will notice the lack of corporate advertising on the site. The United States is currently the only country where its citizens cannot sue pharmaceutical companies for damages due to vaccines. These companies have been granted legal immunity, and one has to sue the federal government in a special "Vaccine Court" to try and get a piece of the Vaccine Injury Compensation Trust Fund, which is funded by taxpayer's taxes paid on the purchase of vaccines. Therefore, much of the information regarding Gardasil injury claims and lawsuits today come from countries outside the U.S., and information about Gardasil injuries inside the U.S. comes mainly from the alternative media which is not sponsored by the pharmaceutical industry. In this article from Cronkite News, we read of one family's frustration in trying to receive a settlement for their daughter's injuries due to the Gardasil vaccine, from the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. Their experience is common in the United States, as the Government Accounting Office (GAO) reported at the end of 2014.
