The Ugly Untold Truth About the Pertussis Vaccine

Vaccine Policy and Genetic Selection

The widespread use of the pertussis vaccine seems to have resulted in natural selection (or unnatural selection, rather) of strains of the bacteria that not only are more resistant to vaccination, but actually favors vaccinated individuals.  Read more…

Undervaccination is hardly the problem.

One critical piece of information the Times doesn’t indulge its readers with is that the vaccine does not prevent transmission of the disease. Instead, vaccinated individuals may become asymptomatic carriers.

BMC Medicine: Is the Whooping Cough Resurgence Due to Vaccinated People who don’t know they are infected?

Newswise — Released: 23-Jun-2015 7:05 AM EDT Whooping cough has made an astonishing comeback, with 2012 seeing nearly 50,000 infections in the U.S. (the most since 1955), and a death rate in infants three times that of the rest of the population. The dramatic resurgence has puzzled public health officials, who have pointed to the waning effectiveness of the current vaccine and growing anti-vaccine sentiment as the most likely culprits.

Fellows Ben Althouse and Sam Scarpino  point to a different, but related, source of the outbreak – vaccinated people who are infectious but who do not display the symptoms of whooping cough, suggesting that the number of people transmitting without symptoms may be many times greater than those transmitting with symptoms.  Read study….

 

SHEDDING LINKS

The move to emphasis those who are vaccinated “shed” and therefore threaten the community will be the responded to by the establishment as a rationale as to  the urgency for compulsory National Adult vaccines. 

. the right for the state to compel vaccination of all children of which increase greatly the percentage of vaccinated individual’s  “shedding” live viruses within the general commmunity does not include liberty to expose the community or the child to communicable disease.

  • Per the CDC, this quote is subtly included, “A small proportion of measles vaccine recipients experience rash and fever 10–14 days following vaccination.”http://www.cdc.gov/measles/lab-tools/genetic-analysis.html

    Parents might not want to ignore that detail before giving the vaccine to their child. Or taking their recently vaccinated child to school and around immune-compromized grandma and new babies. Or to Disney.

  • Detection of fecal shedding of rotavirus vaccine in infants following their first dose of pentavalent rotavirus vaccine.

Baboon Study Reveals New Shortcoming of Pertussis Vaccine

Recent studies have shown that immunity from the acellular (pertusis/whooping cough) vaccine wanes relatively quickly. In 2012, for instance, a New England Journal of Medicine study determined that children’s odds of catching pertussis rose by 42 percent each year after receiving the final dose of DTaP, usually given between ages four and six, in the childhood vaccine series.
