A Brief History Of Vaccine Failures – Is COVID – VAX Next?
Vaccines have long been touted as the medical “saviors” of the modern world. The eradication of diseases like smallpox and measles has largely been attributed to the “miracle” of vaccination.
Let’s see what a walk through history reveals to us…
Measles Vaccine Failure (Introduced years after measles was on the decline!).
From 1959-1962–just before the measles vaccine was introduced–measles was fatal in only 0.01% of cases. And while the number of unvaccinated children has quadrupled since 2001, from 2000-2016 measles deaths decreased by 84%. But there are other factors at play when it comes to the dangers of measles. Malnutrition,especially vitamin A deficiency, is a primary cause of about 90,000 measles deaths annually in underdeveloped nations. In the U.S. and other developed countries, up to 92% of hospitalized measles patients are low in vitamin A. Better nutrition and hygiene may explain the decline in measles mortality even before the vaccine existed. And the numbers that are used to scare us into submission are not numbers that you can trust. About 90% of measles cases are benign and go unreported, meaning that reported cases of measles only constitute about 10% of all cases. Using reported cases to calculate mortality rates results in numbers that are artificially inflated by a factor of 10.
Swine Flu Vaccine and Guillain-Barré Syndrome-1976. In 1976 there was a small increased risk of a serious neurological disorder called Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS) following vaccination with a swine flu vaccine. The increased risk was approximately 1 additional case of GBS for every 100,000 people whogot the swine flu vaccine. When over 40 million people were vaccinated against swine flu, federal health officials decided that the possibility of an association of GBS with the vaccine, however small,necessitated stopping immunization until the issue could be explored. The Institute of Medicine (IOM)conducted a review of this issue in 2003 and concluded that people who received the 1976 swine influenza vaccine had an increased risk for developing GBS. Scientists have multiple theories on why this increased risk may have occurred, but the exact reason for this association remains unknown.
Rotavirus Vaccine and Intussusception–1998-1999.
Following vaccination some infants developed intussusception (rare type of bowel obstruction thatoccurs when the bowel folds in on itself) after being vaccinated. At first, it was not clear if the vaccine or some other factor was causing the bowel obstructions. CDC quickly recommended that use of thevaccine be suspended and immediately started two emergency investigations to find out if receiving RotaShield vaccine was causing some of the cases of intussusception. The results of the investigation sshowed that RotaShield vaccine caused intussusception in some healthy infants younger than 12 months of age who normally would be at low risk for this condition. The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) withdrew its recommendation to vaccinate infants with RotaShield® vaccine, and the manufacturer voluntarily withdrew RotaShield from the market in October 1999.
Gardasil and Vaccine Damaged Boys and Girls Over 100 million doses of HPV vaccines were distributed in the United States from June 2006 throughDecember 2017. To date, most of CDC’s HPV vaccine safety monitoring and research has focused on Gardasil because it has accounted for the majority of HPV vaccine doses distributed in the United States.From its licensure in June 2006 through December 2017 more than 80 million doses of Gardasil were distributed in the United States. During the same period, VAERS received 36,142 U.S. reports of adverse events following Gardasil vaccination. Overall, 93% were non-serious reports;7%have been classified asserious. While Gardasil’s original formulation is no longer available in the United States the current version (Gardasil-9) is available and contains 10x more aluminum than the original!!
Zostavax (Adult Shingles Vaccine) Lawsuit In an attempt to prevent shingles,some patients may have unintentionally contracted the virus from their shingles vaccination. The shingles vaccine Zostavax may cause serious injuries, including shingles, blindness, and even death. Injured patients are now filing lawsuits against Zostavax’s manufacturer Merck (and its owner, Bayer) for failing to warn about the potential side effects. Lawsuits claim that even though Merck knew Zostavax could cause shingles, it didn’t list this as a side effect until December 2014—years after the vaccine was approved by the FDA in 2006. But some plaintiffs allege that Zostavax caused even more serious complications, like blindness,hearing loss, paralysis, brain damage, and fatal liver failure. Merck is currently battling another lawsuit for its mumps, measles, and rubella (MMR) vaccine. In 2010, two former Merck scientists accused the company of manipulating clinical test results to maintain its U.S. monopoly on the MMR vaccine.
Vaccine Studies Lack a ‘Quality Control’ aka Placebo Group (Un-Vaccinated). One of the biggest issues with vaccine safety is a lack of research. While most drugs spend months or even years in testing,vaccines can be approved in as little as a few days. There are no “true” placebo control groups, since each vaccine is tested against an older version of the same vaccine or another vaccine. And the side effects listed on the insert often contain all the same symptoms as the disease itself, making it impossible to prove efficacy. What may be worse is that each vaccine is still considered to be in a clinical stage,as adverse reactions continue to be reported and tracked after the vaccine is introduced. Most product inserts for vaccines have the following warning: Because clinical trials are conducted under widely varying conditions,adverse reaction rates observed in the clinical trials of a vaccine cannot be directly compared to rates in the clinical trials of another vaccine and may not reflect the rates observed in practice.
