STUDY: HPV-Pharmaceutical Companies’ Role in State Vaccination Policymaking

Pharmaceutical Companies’ Role in State Vaccination Policymaking: The Case of Human Papillomavirus Vaccination


Objectives. We sought to investigate roles that Merck & Co Inc played in state human papillomavirus (HPV) immunization policymaking, to elicit key stakeholders’ perceptions of the appropriateness of these activities, and to explore implications for relationships between health policymakers and industry.

Methods. We used a series of state case studies combining data from key informant interviews with analysis of media reports and archival materials. We interviewed 73 key informants in 6 states that were actively engaged in HPV vaccine policy deliberations.

Results. Merck promoted school-entry mandate legislation by serving as an information resource, lobbying legislators, drafting legislation, mobilizing female legislators and physician organizations, conducting consumer marketing campaigns, and filling gaps in access to the vaccine. Legislators relied heavily on Merck for scientific information. Most stakeholders found lobbying by vaccine manufacturers acceptable in principle, but perceived that Merck had acted too aggressively and nontransparently in this case.

Conclusions. Although policymakers acknowledge the utility of manufacturers’ involvement in vaccination policymaking, industry lobbying that is overly aggressive, not fully transparent, or not divorced from financial contributions to lawmakers risks undermining the prospects for legislation to foster uptake of new vaccines.


Neglected Child for Religious Reasons (statute)

2151.03 Neglected child defined – failure to provide medical or surgical care for religious reasons.

(A) As used in this chapter, “neglected child” includes any child:

(1) Who is abandoned by the child’s parents, guardian, or custodian;

(2) Who lacks adequate parental care because of the faults or habits of the child’s parents, guardian, or custodian;

(3) Whose parents, guardian, or custodian neglects the child or refuses to provide proper or necessary subsistence, education, medical or surgical care or treatment, or other care necessary for the child’s health, morals, or well being;

(4) Whose parents, guardian, or custodian neglects the child or refuses to provide the special care made necessary by the child’s mental condition;

(5) Whose parents, legal guardian, or custodian have placed or attempted to place the child in violation of sections 5103.16 and 5103.17 of the Revised Code;

(6) Who, because of the omission of the child’s parents, guardian, or custodian, suffers physical or mental injury that harms or threatens to harm the child’s health or welfare;

42 U.S.C. 1396f. Similarly, although Congress granted HHS authority to conduct research, experiments, and demonstrations related to occupational illnesses in the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, such authority did not include the power to require “medical examination, immunization, or treatment for those who object thereto on religious grounds, except where such is necessary for the protection of the health or safety of others.” 29 U.S.C. 669(a)(5).

Summary of Content
39 states, the District of Columbia and Guam have laws providing that parents or caretakers who fail to provide medical assistance to a child because of their religious beliefs are not criminally liable for harm to the child. There is also no Federal requirement that a parent or legal guardian provide a child any medical treatment that is against the religious beliefs of the parent or legal guardian.1
At the time Congress passed the Child Abuse Prevention & Treatment Act in 1974 to create a uniform approach to child abuse, it deferred to the Department of Health, Education and Welfare (now Health and Human Services) to determine the religious exemption policies of the act.2 HEW mandated that the states adopt religious exemptions to child neglect before they could receive federal funding for state child-protection programs.3 Although the department adopted new regulations in 1983 striking down this requirement,4 few states have repealed these religious exemption laws. Most of these statutes require that in order for religious beliefs to be a valid reason for denying a child medical care, the religion must be a recognized church or a religious denomination. The Supreme Court had not addressed whether or not neglect exemptions for religious purposes violate the Establishment Clause.5

VLA COMMENT: Then why have judges forced medical treatments such as chemotherapy on underaged children such as those in the Amish community?

BITCOIN EXPLAINED (must watch…whoa)

Int’l Vaccine News: Italy mandantes, Germany fines, Sweden rejects mandates

Vaccine Injury Awareness Day /

Italy Mandates / Germany Considers Fines / Sweden Rejects Mandates

Secretary European Forum for Vaccine Vigilance (EFVV)
London, United Kingdom

May 27, 2017 — Saturday the 3rd of June 2017 is International Vaccine Injury Awareness Day. Demonstrations are being organized in cities all over Europe. To see the list and take part in a protest near you, please visit the official ‘Light a Candle’ website:, and while you are there, make sure to light the virtual candle by simply clicking on it. Many will also light real candles in their homes or in public places in sympathy and support for all victims of vaccination. Please make an effort to join us in this powerful event. Here’s why it is so important:

Just as Jackson State University in Mississippi USA published a study this month revealing that the unvaccinated have much lower rates of chronic illness than the vaccinated (, the Italian government voted a law making vaccines mandatory for school attendance and exams ( a shocking breach of fundamental human rights! The law is not yet applicable but will be soon, so now is the time to protest vehemently.

The Germans are also clamping down on parents, not as severely as Italy but parents there may be fined for not seeking advice on vaccination for their children and daycare centres will be responsible for reporting parents who fail to seek vaccination advice, to the Ministry of Health:

The Swedes on the other hand have recently rejected 7 motions that would have promoted forced vaccinations. The Swedish Parliament decided forced vaccination policies are contrary to their citizens’ constitutional rights:

So: well done to Sweden and it’s a sad day for Democracy and Freedom of Choice in Italy and Germany! Let’s hope the Italian people can make their government withdraw this outrage before too many children become the victims of unnecessary harm, and the German government will decide against imposing fines and mandates.

Please attend a ‘Light a Candle’ event in your country!

Parental Rights Under Attack

Parental Rights Under Attack (Again) … This Time with SB18: Bill of Rights for the Children and Youth of California

Parental rights is a hot topic in the US these days, as more parents feel an increasing encroachment by the government into how they raise their family. Now, this ongoing issue between parents and the State has reached an all new level with the introduction of bill SB18, otherwise known as the “Bill of Rights for the Children and Youth of California.”


SB 18 Opposition Analysis

Here’s California Progressinve take on SB18:  Shouldn’t a bill that is supposed to be a Bill of Rights for Children focus on children instead of tax code?


North Carolina Congresswoman Virginia Foxx, a Republican, has introduced new legislation that, taken to its logical end, might eventually provision for employers to force their employees to be vaccinated under the guise of “wellness.”  House Resolution 1313, known as the “Preserving Employee Wellness Programs Act,” contains certain provisions for “disease prevention” that, should employees refuse them, might end up costing them their jobs. That, or employees could face penalties in the form of ostracization or even higher insurance rates.  READ MORE….

VLA COMMENT: California already passed a law in tandem with SB 77 which prohibits public and private education for any child that is not fully vaccinated.  This law targeting Daycare Centers prohibits employment or volunteering to anyone who has not gotten vaccinated.  This is virtually the first time that the government mandate vaccines for employment.


Harvard Trained Immunologist Demolishes California Pro-Mass Vaccination Legislation

The following open letter written by a PhD Immunologist completely demolishes the current California legislative initiative to remove all vaccine exemptions.

Read Letter….send to Legislators

VLA Comment: Clear and excellent.  Send en mass to your legislators. Dr. Tetyana clarifies the non-communicablity of various vaccines that are touted as dangerous to immunocompromised individual. She easily dispels this myth of contagion.

Homeschoolers in danger: Federal bill sponsored by Iowa’s Steve King

For many on the outside looking in, the newly purposed House bill H.R.610 looks like a win for homeschooling families and their supporters. It looks like those who have been unable to afford private, or homeschooling will now be given this option. So, why are these people opposed to the bill?

School vouchers created by H.R. 610, the Choices in Education Act of 2017, “would be a slippery slope toward more federal involvement and control in homeschooling,” asserts William Estrada, director of federal relations for the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA). Is Estrada correct? Can this favorable bill be used by a future hostile left to control and maintain the homeschoolers? Will they be regulated into the same stupid curriculum that is destroying the minds of millions of children in our public schools? Read More…

VLA Comment: I can tell you this.  Bill Gates has been buying up major homeschool programs and inserting the Common Core curriculum. Bill Gates’ victory in California was an awesome double win for the Gates.  His minions force kids who don’t vaccinate out of public and private school and then provide them (without their knowledge) virtual education packed with Common Core.  Although virtual education seems like a good thing as to educate those in developing countries who lack a good system of education. Between Afrika and America, the whole world will be brainwashed with a common ideology and thus easily ruled by a global government. Many good things have been skewed by suspect interests.

Post Script: There was also a bill in Iowa this year (2017) that failed, fortunately. It proposed that there be  health oversight agencies monitoring homeschools.  Bills like HR610 smells like the vaccine establishment are now focusing on making sure that they get homeschools under control…then vaccinated.

Federal bill seeks to cap non-economic drug injuries to $250,000

In HR 1215, Rep. King of Iowa unfavorably targets the healthcare “consumer”, who irreparably damaged by “standard of care drugs” and mandated vaccines, is by the enactment of this bill,  limited and capped from receiving just compensation.

HR 1215 sponsored by Rep. King, is a weak and unfortunate effort, at the expense of drug or vaccine damaged consumers, to save the Federal government a puported $65 Billion of dollars (over a decade)

Rep. King fails to support the directive of Tom Price and President Trump to reduce costly federal medical expenditures.  In fact, public analysis shows that the cost to insurance companies and the federal government of deaths and injury from top down policy “standard of care” drugs and mandated vaccines is the red column elephant in the room.  An analysis of cost-effectiveness of vaccine mandates as potentially administrated by a Vaccine Science and Integrity Commission headed by Robert F. Kennedy, jr., according to a draft of our recent analysis of the meningitis vaccine, the deletion of the meningitis vaccine (Menatra) and other vaccines from the ACIP recommendations may save the Federal government trillions, not billions of dollars over time.

Excerpts from HR 1215, Rep. King (IA)

(b) noneconomic damages.—In any health care lawsuit, the amount of non-economic damages, if available, shall not exceed $250,000, regardless of the number of parties against whom the action is brought or the number of separate claims or actions brought with respect to the same injury.

The jury shall not be informed about the maximum award for noneconomic damages. An award for noneconomic damages in excess of $250,000 shall be reduced either before the entry of judgment, or by amendment of the judgment after entry of judgment…
