It started with California senate bill 277 as a trial to test compliance and now many states are following suit to enforce mandatory vaccinations based on inconclusive evidence that the unvaccinated are spreading disease.
New York City has recently declared a public health emergency over a measles outbreak and ordered mandatory vaccinations as "necessary" for all residents to address the measles "crisis" in Brooklyn's Williamsburg community, a neighborhood of more than 250 ultra-Orthodox Jewish residents.
"The declaration requires all unvaccinated people who may have been exposed to the virus to get the vaccine, including children over 6 months old," reports the Associated Press.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio stated anyone in these areas must receive the measles vaccine, including children over 6 months old, or face a fine of up to $1,000.
Get the measles vaccine, and you won't get the measles--or give it to anyone else. Right? Yet in the spring of 2014, also in New York, a person who was vaccinated against measles contracted the disease and passed it on to others. A fully vaccinated 22-year-old theater employee in New York City who developed measles was released without hospitalization or quarantine.
Ultimately, she transmitted the measles to four other people, according to a recent report in Clinical Infectious Diseases that tracked symptoms in the 88 people with whom "Measles Mary" interacted while she was sick. Surprisingly, two of the secondary patients had been fully vaccinated. And although the other two had no record of receiving the vaccine, they both showed signs of previous measles exposure that should have conferred immunity.
The medical community, epidemiologists, infectious disease specialists and biostatisticians have all stated the science is clear. However, the evidence suggests otherwise. The science is not clear. Vaccines DO NOT protect children against infectious disease and vaccination (which is not immunization) has no benefit to protect any type of community.
Not only are public health entities habitually and deliberately failing to inform the public of their right to refuse vaccines in both school and work settings, but they are working towards mandatory vaccination protocols which will allow officials to conduct childhood vaccinations without any parental consent at all.
There are opinions now held by many in high levels of public health agencies and government which may soon translate into laws requiring mandatory enforcement of vaccination and the elimination of vaccine exemptions.
State legislatures are now dealing with a rash of legislation to tighten vaccination rules in reaction to the targeted media attack against the anti-vaccination movement that started with the coordinated Disneyland measles outbreak. The media outcry was designed to focus on parents who choose not to vaccinate their children. With Disneyland scare, it's now been established at least half of the Disneyland children who allegedly caught measles WERE vaccinated.
The message is clear: any parents who might have genuine personal and family health concerns regarding risky vaccines, are "putting the public safety at risk and therefore must comply". In the wake of this crisis, US media are currently promoting a new class of laws that will eliminate a parent and student's ability to obtain a 'waiver' for mandatory vaccinations. In other words, if you do not get all the vaccines which the state demands, then you will be breaking the law.
The phenomenon of measles infection spread by MMR (live measles-mumps-rubella vaccine) has been known for decades. In fact, 20 years ago, scientists working at the CDC's National Center for Infectious Diseases, funded by the WHO and the National Vaccine Program, discovered something truly disturbing about the MMR vaccine: it leads to detectable measles infection in the vast majority of those who receive it.
Published in 1995 in the Journal of Clinical Microbiology and titled, "Detection of Measles Virus RNA in Urine Specimens from Vaccine Recipients," researchers analyzed urine samples from newly MMR vaccinated 15-month-old children and young adults and reported their eye-opening results as following:
- Measles virus RNA was detected in 10 of 12 children during the 2-week sampling period.
- In some cases, measles virus RNA was detected as early as 1 day or as late as 14 days after the children were vaccinated.
- Measles virus RNA was also detected in the urine samples from all four of the young adults between 1 and 13 days after vaccination.
Mandatory vaccination threatens our basic human rights because it:
- Undermines the right of families to protect their children from unwanted medical interference
- Invalidates the personal freedoms of conscience and religion and the legal right to security of the person guaranteed to all citizens by the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms
- Violates our right to know and understand what we are putting in our bodies, and to refuse unwanted medical treatments, whether 'preventive’ or 'therapeutic’
- Ignores the thousands of vaccine adverse events reported in Canada each year and health injuries that are occurring - the majority to young children
- Exposes families to the risk of vaccine injury and death without any National vaccine injury compensation program
- Changes our relationship with the medical profession, making Doctors into medical enforcers and Judges, rather than professional resources we consult with in order to make our own medical decisions
The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) monitors and reports on vaccine-related legislation that affects children and adults living in the U.S., including parents of minor children; foster parents; college students; health care providers and other adults whose lives are impacted by vaccination policies and laws.
Among the vaccine bills that NVIC is tracking this year include ones that propose to:
- Mandate use of new vaccines by children and adults;
- Restrict or eliminate vaccine exemptions;
- Restrict the list of persons who can approve vaccine exemptions
- Allow vaccine providers to administer HPV and hepatitis B vaccines to minors without parental consent;
- Allow forced vaccination and medical treatment under certain circumstances;
- Allow state health officials to mandate all federally recommended vaccines;
- Mandate that doctors and other vaccine providers track and report the vaccination status of all children and adults in electronic medical records;
- Require schools to publicly post vaccination rates or vaccine exemption rates;
- Require a physician signature for a religious or conscientious belief exemption to vaccination;
- Require school districts to conduct health and safety visits for children under private instruction;
- Require vaccines for college students based on CDC (ACIP) vaccine recommendations;
- Require long term care facilities to track vaccination status of employees and residents;
- Expand the release of information in the state vaccine tracking registry (such as to insurance companies);
- Mandate vaccines for vendors serving hospitals and other medical facilities;
- Require all insurance plans to cover all CDC recommended vaccines without copays or deductibles;
- Allow pharmacists, dentists or optometrists to administer vaccines.
Evidence That the Vaccinated Are Not Immune, Spread Disease
Can An Unvaccinated or Immune Compromised Child Get Sick From Coming in Contact With a Recently Vaccinated Person?
Absolutely, especially when it comes to live virus vaccines. Contrary to what Doctors tell their patients, during a viral infection, live virus is shed in the body fluids of those who are infected for varying amounts of time and can be transmitted to others. Vaccine strain live viruses also shed for varying amounts of time in the body fluids of vaccinated people and can be transmitted to others.
Although public health officials maintain that live attenuated virus vaccines rarely cause complications in the vaccinated person and that vaccine strain viral shedding rarely causes disease in close contacts of the recently vaccinated, it is important to be aware that vaccine strain live virus infection can sometimes cause serious complications in vaccinated persons and vaccine strain live viruses can be shed and transmitted to others with serious or even fatal consequences.
The National Vaccine Information Center has published an important document relevant to this topic titled "The Emerging Risks of Live Virus & Virus Vectored Vaccines: Vaccine Strain Virus Infection, Shedding & Transmission." Pages 34-36 in the section on "Measles, Mumps, Rubella Viruses and Live Attenuated Measles, Mumps, Rubella Viruses" discuss evidence that the MMR vaccine can lead to measles infection and transmission.
Cases highlighted include:
- In 2010, Eurosurveillance published a report about excretion of vaccine strain measles virus in urine and pharyngeal secretions of a Croatian child with vaccine-associated rash illness. A healthy 14-month old child was given MMR vaccine and eight days later developed macular rash and fever. Lab testing of throat and urine samples between two and four weeks after vaccination tested positive for vaccine strain measles virus. Authors of the report pointed out that when children experience a fever and rash after MMR vaccination, only molecular lab testing can determine whether the symptoms are due to vaccine strain measles virus infection. They stated: "According to WHO guidelines for measles and rubella elimination, routine discrimination between aetiologies of febrile rash disease is done by virus detection. However, in a patient recently MMR-vaccinated, only molecular techniques can differentiate between wild type measles or rubella infection or vaccine-associated disease. This case report demonstrates that excretion of Schwartz measles virus occurs in vaccinees."
- In 2012, Pediatric Child Health published a report describing a healthy 15-month old child in Canada, who developed irritability, fever, cough, conjunctivitis and rash within seven days of an MMR shot. Blood, urine and throat swab tests were positive for vaccine strain measles virus infection 12 days after vaccination. Addressing the potential for measles vaccine strain virus transmission to others, the authors stated, "While the attenuated virus can be detected in clinical specimens following immunization, it is understood that administration of the MMR vaccine to immunocompetent individuals does not carry the risk of secondary transmission to susceptible hosts.
- In 2013, Eurosurveillance published a report of vaccine strain measles occurring weeks after MMR vaccination in Canada. Authors stated, "We describe a case of measlesmumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine-associated measles illness that was positive by both PCR and IgM, five weeks after administration of the MMR vaccine." The case involved a two-year-old child, who developed runny nose, fever, cough, macular rash and conjunctivitis after vaccination and tested positive for vaccine strain measles virus infection in throat swab and blood tests. Canadian health officials authoring the report raised the question of whether there are unidentified cases of vaccine strain measles infections and the need to know more about how long measles vaccine strain shedding lasts. They concluded that the case they reported "likely represents the existence of additional, but unidentified, exceptions to the typical timeframe for measles vaccine virus shedding and illness." They added that "further investigation is needed on the upper limit of measles vaccine virus shedding based on increased sensitivity of the RT-PCR-based detection technologies and immunological factors associated with vaccine-associated measles illness and virus shedding."
Vaccines Causing Both Viral and Bacterial Mutations
Evidence continues to mount from the scientific community who now admit that certain vaccines are in-fact causing both viral and bacterial mutations. Ironically, the same researchers assert that "better" vaccines are needed to offset the rise in persistent mutations.
Virologists have observed that replicating and mutating viruses are the "world's leading source of genetic innovation:"
"The huge population of viruses, combined with their rapid rates of replication and mutation, makes them the world's leading source of genetic innovation: they constantly "invent" new genes. And unique genes of viral origin may travel, finding their way into other organisms and contributing to evolutionary change."
Life-threatening pathogens are capable of evolving rapidly and developing genetic decoys that serve to disguise them from even the most powerful drugs. University of Oxford researcher Rory Bowden found that pathogens switch genetic material with other bacteria, but predominantly for the part of the genome responsible for making the cell coating, which is the area targeted by vaccines.
Discussing the co-evolution of viruses with humans and other living organisms, another virologist wrote in 2012 that during epidemics viruses evolve. Genetic and environmental co-factors make some individuals more or less likely to die from or survive the infection, producing an increase of the numbers of resistant individuals in the population:
"Viruses can become particularly dangerous when they evolve to acquire the possibility to infect new animal species. The defense systems of the new host may be generally unable to counteract the new pathogen and many individuals will die. In any epidemic, there are also individuals showing little sensitivity to or complete resistance to the particular pathogen. Both increased sensitivity and resistance to the infection are specified by the individual's genetic makeup and various environmental factors. Accordingly, mass epidemics not only produce new virus variants but also alter the host population structure: highly sensitive individuals die, while the portion of resistant individuals in the population increases. Therefore, the coevolution of the virus and the host is a mutually dependent process."
What is clear about vaccination is that it poses a threat that mainstream science does not want the public to know about. The imposition of mandatory vaccination (or its illusion) is perhaps the biggest mistake that public health policy and government are currently pursuing. As more people become informed and pull away from the clutches of fear, anxiety and control that accompanies vaccination, more public health and government policy will enforce their position through aggression and threats. That alone is a clear indication of which stance holds true merit and which one doesn't.
