Lining up for another really ineffective vaccine may be something you may not want to do. I like the concept that makes you stop and think whether or not you are willing to be a lab experiment that's using your body as a Petri dish.
The CDC seems alarmed about current vaccine refusals, like those for shingles, whooping cough and cervical cancer vaccines, which haven't met their numbers. (Great to be a statistic isn't it).
Here's the turn-out for these vaccines so far:
Shingles: In its first year on the market, only 2 percent of folks age 60 and older got the vaccine.
Whooping cough: Just 2 percent of folks between the ages of 18 and 64 got a booster vaccine when it was approved in 2005.
HPV: Only 10 percent of women recommended to have this shot (ages 18 to 26) had received at least one shot of the three-vaccination series.
Those aren't the only low numbers. Here's a couple that have been in the arsenal that a lot of people have passed on:
Flu vaccine: 69 percent of seniors get it
Pneumonia vaccine: 66 percent have rolled up their sleeves
Perhaps the problem is the nasty mix of unnatural chemicals that they want you to inject directly into your body. I'm allergic to chicken eggs so for me I sure wouldn't want to line up, but maybe no one asked you if you are allergic to chicken or eggs. Many of the vaccines are developed using chicken eggs in case you didn't know.
When the shingles vaccine first came out, it worked only half the time for people ages 60 to 69. In people over 70 — the age most at risk - the vaccine's "success" rate was a mere 38 percent. (Hardly a raging success.)
In direct opposition to the overblown hype, the study showed that the vaccine was no better than the placebo at preventing deaths, hospitalizations, total use of pain medications, and daily functioning capability.
If you have had chicken pox you have the shingles virus in your body. Stress can activate it and it is very painful.
I had a break out of shingles following my father's death. I applied valerian root salve I blended to my skin where I had the outbreaks, and took a combination of tinctures of valerian and St. John's Wort I developed for pain. This solved the problem PDQ. Some other herbs are known to be helpful.
Pneumonia Deaths Seen With Rotavirus Vaccine
WASHINGTON (Reuters) Feb 15 - Rotarix, GlaxoSmithKline Plc's investigational rotavirus vaccine, is associated with increased pneumonia-related deaths and other adverse reactions, U.S. regulatory staff said in documents posted on Friday.
The review comes ahead of a Food and Drug Administration advisory meeting next Wednesday to consider approval of the oral vaccine. Their analysis of 11 studies revealed a statistically significant increase in deaths related to pneumonia with the vaccine compared with placebo in the largest trial, according to documents posted on the FDA's Web site.
That study, which enrolled about 63,000 children, also found an increase in convulsions in children given the vaccine. Another study found an increased rate of bronchitis compared with placebo.
The FDA advisory panel will weigh the staff review, but makes its own recommendation, which is typically followed by the FDA.
Meningococcal Vaccine - "First US Cases Of Resistant Meningococcal Disease"
This is another dis-ease with a common vaccine, generally now required by all colleges for incoming freshman.
Some children find it in their list of "required" shots.
Now with Tamiflu not working - some how I seem the feel that it IS because of the vaccines, and maybe I should wonder if it isn't built in, as a self-destruct suicide recombinant something added along with all the aluminum and mercury.
Also, since most of the current antibiotics are fluoride based, and aluminum is in the adjuvant carrier fluids of vaccines, perhaps it is a Fluoride Aluminum reaction that creates this.
One really has to wonder, because FDA and CDC are not!
According to a new survey, fewer than half of the U.S. medical schools queried have policies in place to safeguard against improper financial links with drug companies. And it is not clear whether those with such safeguards actually enforce them. The findings come from the first national survey to examine the potential for what are called institutional conflicts of interest (ICOI) between pharmaceutical manufacturers or other for-profit groups and academic medical research centers that oversee drug testing on human subjects.

In its first year on the market, the new meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MCV4) was potentially associated with an increased risk of Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS), a rare neurological disorder that causes increasing weakness in the limbs. The meningococcal vaccine (Menactra) was recommended by the ACIP in May 2005 for routine vaccination of adolescents, college freshmen who live in dormitories, and other high-risk individuals.9
By September 2006, 17 confirmed cases of GBS in recipients of MCV4 had been reported to VAERS (all affected individuals had recovered or were recovering).10 Although this association does not necessarily mean the vaccine caused the illness, the CDC has reported that the timing of the onset of GBS symptoms—within one to five weeks of vaccination—is of concern. As of October 2006, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and CDC were monitoring the situation, and the CDC continued to recommend the vaccine for adolescents and others.11
The current vaccine failures highlight shortcomings in vaccine target selection, which will continue to deteriorate as influenza evolution is driven by vaccine mismatches and productive homologous recombination. Full Article
