Canadian Public Health Association Urging Politicians For National Vaccination Registry

The Canadian Public Health Association (CPHA) is urging Canadian politicians to continue endorsing the hype regarding vaccines. Their plan is to introduce a national vaccination registry to track the vaccination history of every single Canadian.

The CPHA is the same organization that still advises and misleads government health agencies into a false perception that Tamiflu is safe for children under 1 year of age. Consequently, Health Canada has taken its advice among other agencies, concluding that the known and potential benefits of Tamiflu outweigh the known and potential risks for children under 1. Despite the reality that Tamilfu has not been studied at all in children under 1, or the fact that the Tamiflu website itself does not give dosage recommendations for children under 1, Health Canada and advising agencies such as the CPHA do not appear to give any evidence for their decision, conclusions or contradictions regarding Tamiflu.

During the hyped H1N1 flu pandemic, Debra Lynkowski, chief executive officer of the CPHA, defended the advertising campaign. "If we hadn't implemented the plan and we hadn't invested and the outbreak was more severe, we can only guess what the price might have been in human lives or the health-care system."

Dr. Richard Schabas dismissed that stance stating "that's a little bit like saying, 'If the Maple Leafs had won the Stanley Cup we wouldn't have been prepared for the victory parade,'" he said.

Lynkowski states that the registry proposed will provide better opportunities for research, vaccine promotion and education.

Who are the CPHA?

Many of the CPHA board members have been funded by pharmaceutical interests, including its Chair Cordell Nuedorf, who is also the Chair of the Canadian Population Health Initiative (CPHI) Council.

Nuedorf was part of a study in 2006 in the Canadian Medical Association Journal (the same journal calling for greater pandemic powers) which attempted to validate the pertussis vaccination programs in infants and young children. Despite repeated historical evidence which clearly demonstrated the ineffectiveness of the vaccine, studies such as this continue in present day to change the mindset of vaccine education.

"Nuedorf is a pawn of the pharmaceutical cartel and represents a very biased view of vaccines," said vaccine researcher and Naturopathic Doctor, Dave Mihalovic. "His credibility is certainly questionable since he has several ties to big pharma and the vaccine manufacturing industry itself," he added.

The Canadian Journal of Public Health (CJPH) is the official
organ of the Canadian Public Health Association. The journal contains extensive studies funded by pharmaceutical grants and offers extensive literature on how conventional medicine views vaccines as immunizing.

Nothing New

It was initially recommended in 1996 that a vaccination tracking system was urgently needed in Canada. The discussion between participants at a Canadian Vaccination Conference led to the development of key conceptual ideas to use electronic registries for immunization surveillance. It was proposed that registries in Canada would:

  • Be used to identify children due or overdue for vaccines, and generate recall/reminder notification to parents.
  • Have the capacity to make appointments, and to provide a database for health-care providers to monitor the vaccination status of patients at each encounter, regardless of where the vaccine is administered.
  • Be able to assist in public health planning by identifying populations at risk for delayed vaccination
  • In provinces where physicians deliver most vaccinations, registries should be accessible and/or developed for their practice.

As a follow-up to these recommendations, a Canadian Consensus Conference on a National Immunization Records System, held in March 1998, was convened by Health Canada. It was at this conference that the goal for a National Immunization Records Network was developed:

To ensure every province and territory will have a comprehensive electronic immunization registry capable of participating in a national immunization records network, by 2003. Immunization registries will assist Canadian jurisdictions in delivery of immunizations to all children and in the measurement of immunization coverage rates.

Nuedorf wants politicians to discuss including the registry in the 2014 renewal of the First Minister's Health Accord, which was signed in 2003 by former prime minister Paul Martin and all provincial premiers. The accord set health-care priorities for the coming years and reaffirmed their commitment to the Canada Health Act.

A Threat to Freedom of Choice

Such a registry would eventually curb the right and freedoms of every Canadian and likely strip constitutional rights if left unchecked. If abused, the registry could, in due time, prevent Canadians from having their driver's license renewed or keeping their jobs, as this how the government would essentially enforce compliance.

We now know that vaccinations aren't "essential" medical treatments as the conventional medical community would have us believe. In fact, all vaccines are little more than poison causing immunotoxicity, neurotoxicity and sterility.

Judge Stephen Lipton's recent decision
to refuse to order vaccinations of four children shows that there are heroes in the judicial system ensuring that freedom of choice is honoured and maintained. Bravo Judge Lipton!

Just as the National Gun Registry in Canada was a dismal failure, so to would be a vaccination registry that does little to protect the health of Canadians and a lot to do with big pharma's profits.
