Evidence from government health agencies and medical journals clearly documents that the measles vaccine is ineffective. So what is the official response? The bastion of “evidence-based medicine” ignores its own evidence and calls for more vaccinations, of course!
Without further ado, here are studies and government agency announcements documenting that measles outbreaks have hit the vaccinated and even been centered on them:
This study goes back 40 years and documents that the lack of efficacy in the measles vaccine is nothing new. It stated:
The analysis of serologic data supported the contention that the outbreak was causally related to defective protection associated with the use of vaccine plus globulin in infants. It also demonstrated persistence of CF antibody many years after immunization and suggested the presence of a booster phenomenon.
A review of the clinical illness of the 25 children who had been given the vaccine and 22 who had not revealed little difference in the severity of the disease.
The CDC investigated an outbreak of measles from 9 December 1983 to 13 January 1984. It centered in a school of 411 students where 100% of them had been vaccinated. The study confirmed their vaccination histories. The initial case was in a 17 year-old student, and the source of his infection was not discovered. The more students were in contact with him, the more likely that they succumbed to measles.
The CDC entered an editorial note:
This outbreak demonstrates that transmission of measles can occur within a school population with a documented immunization level of 100%. This level was validated during the outbreak investigation. Previous investigations of measles outbreaks among highly immunized populations have revealed risk factors such as improper storage or handling of vaccine, vaccine administered to children under 1 year of age, use of globulin with vaccine, and use of killed virus vaccine. However, these risk factors did not adequately explain the occurrence of this outbreak.
They attempt to blame a cluster of vaccine failures, though that never goes past the point of conjecture.
Currently, the CDC schedules the MMR (measles mumps rubella) vaccine at 12-15 months of age. However, this study says:
Students vaccinated at 12-14 months of age were at increased risk compared to those vaccinated at greater than or equal to 15 months.
This study followed an outbreak of 84 cases of measles at a Colorado college where over 98% of the students had been documented to have “adequate measles immunity, based on previous measles infection, live measles vaccine on or after the first birthday, or serologic evidence of immunity. At least one of these proofs of immunity was required for entry into the school.
This study investigated the degree of prevention provided by measles vaccines. They found:
Total protection against measles might not be achievable, even among revaccinees, when children are confronted with intense exposure to measles virus.
Between 1 January and 3 August 2011, 727 measles cases were notified in Canada. 65% of the cases were in young people aged 10-19 years. Only 1.8% were over age 40. The study concludes:
While this still ongoing outbreak feeds largely on unvaccinated individuals, the high proportion of cases who received two doses raises concerns on vaccine effectiveness.
This is rather strange. Notice that the percentage of people over age 40 who got measles is very small. This is the least vaccinated group by a significant margin. The age group that came down with the highest percentage of cases was aged 10-19 years, a group that was mostly vaccinated, but had generally had the vaccines a few years earlier.
The implication of this is that the measles vaccine provides only limited protection, and that the limited protection lasts for only a short time. However, natural immunity, the sort that people over age 40 are significantly more likely to have, generally results in permanent immunity.
The statement that the outbreak “feeds largely on unvaccinated individuals” seems rather casual. To blame people who haven’t been vaccinated for disease in those who have is absurd on its face. That, though, is the sort of pseudo logic that’s often used to push vaccines.
These reports document three primary facts about the measles vaccine:
The third point, the lack of effectiveness in the measles vaccine for children under age 15 months, should no longer be surprising. A newborn’s immune system does not function in the same way as an adult’s. Newborns do not develop antibodies as older children and adults do. That fact is now being used to pressure people into getting vaccinated. The reason given is to “cocoon” babies from diseases.
What they fail to mention is that, prior to mass vaccination, newborns faced very little risk of contracting measles. Their mothers generally had natural immunity from having had the diseases themselves, thereby developing lifelong protection and passing it on to their babies. Thus, newborns were protected until they’d reached an age that allowed them to respond to infections and develop their own immunity.
However, little or no protection is provided to newborns when their mothers have only vaccines’ artificially-induced antibodies. So, the need to cocoon newborns from diseases like measles is a direct result of the vaccines!
As can be seen from the work of those who push vaccinations, the measles vaccine is of limited value. What efficacy is provided lasts only a short time. There is a known and significant risk of adverse effects from the vaccine itself. Revaccinating again and again and again—which appears to be where things are headed—carries serious risks of neurological damage, among other life-altering damage.
As a result, scientists have become pseudo scientists. Even when, as in the examples given here, their results show that vaccinations may not be effective, they still spin them to push modern medicine’s paradigm. Whatever the results, vaccinations will be promoted. If the vaccinated are shown not to be protective, then the claim will be that more vaccines need to be given. If it becomes clear that it won’t be possible to do more vaccinating, then fear mongering and guilt will be promoted.
Modern medicine has decided that vaccinations will be promoted, and it appears to make no difference how much harm they do or even whether they’re particularly effective. Vaccines are big money makers for doctors, who have an excuse to call children into their offices on a regular basis. They’ve become the planned future of Big Pharma as their blockbuster drugs go out of patent and little new is in the pipeline. Nothing, no amount of harm and no facts of inefficacy are allowed to stand in the way of the profit-making vaccine juggernaut.
Definition of juggernaut, from the American Heritage Dictionary: Something, such as a belief or institution, that elicits blind and destructive devotion or to which people are ruthlessly sacrificed.
