Failure to Vaccinate or Vaccine Failure: What is Driving Disease Outbreaks?
Failure to Vaccinate or Vaccine Failure: What is Driving Disease Outbreaks? By: GMI Reporter for Green Med Info
In late February, in testimony on measles for the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, Dr. Anthony Fauci – director of the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) – admitted with a chuckle that he and most of the Committee members sitting before him had uneventfully experienced measles as children and had recovered completely. These national leaders reaped many benefits by getting measles in childhood – accruing lifelong immunity and protection against cardiovascular disease, among other benefits – but that has not stopped them from fomenting public panic about measles or pushing for more vaccine mandates. This week, the Senate followed up with its own similar hearing. The Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee said that the hearing’s purpose was to consider “what is driving preventable disease outbreaks,” but rather than examine this question fully or fairly, the event featured a hand-picked line-up of speakers who are – one and all –promoters of a “no ifs, ands or buts” vaccine party line.
Many studies illustrate both types of vaccine failure [primary and secondary] as well as the concerning potential for vaccinated individuals to transmit disease to others.
Congressional hearings on vaccine safety in the early 2000s were more balanced, at least allowing multiple viewpoints to be aired (if not acted upon). Why are current legislators exhibiting so little curiosity and ignoring long-published evidence that infectious diseases “routinely break out in highly vaccinated communities“? Logically, flares of illness in vaccinated groups should prompt some serious questions about vaccine failure, rather than hostile condemnation of the very small proportion of families who, for medical, religious or philosophical reasons, do not comply with one hundred percent of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) childhood vaccine schedule (currently almost six dozen doses of sixteen vaccines by age 18 – and counting). In their fixation to scapegoat and corral unvaccinated individuals, the CDC, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Fauci’s own NIAID are displaying a dangerous indifference to vaccination’s unintended consequences.
Increased susceptibility…due to vaccination
Vaccines are supposed to “exploit the immune system’s ability to ‘memorize’ encounters with previously unknown microbes.” As published studies describe, however, this goal often fails or even backfires. In “primary” vaccine failure (estimated to affect at least 2% to 10% of healthy individuals), a vaccinated individual never produces any meaningful antibodies after initial (or booster) vaccination; in the case of “secondary” vaccine failure, protection wanes “after initial effectiveness.”
