HERD IMMUNITY MYTH by Russell Blaylock MD., board cerified neurosurgeon, author & lecturer
That vaccine-induced herd immunity is mostly myth can be proven quite simply. When I was in medical school, we were taught that all of the childhood vaccines lasted a lifetime. This thinking existed for over 70 years. It was not until relatively recently that it was discovered that most of these vaccines lost their effectiveness 2 to 10 years after being given.
What this means is that at least half the population, that is the baby boomers, have had no vaccine-induced immunity against any of these diseases for which they had been vaccinated very early in life. At least 50 percent of the population has been unprotected for decades.
If we listen to present-day wisdom, we are all at risk of resurgent massive epidemics should the vaccination rate fall below 95 percent. Yet we have all lived for at least 30 to 40 years with 50 percent or less of the population having vaccine protection.
Herd immunity has not existed in this country for many decades, and no resurgent epidemics have occurred. Vaccine-induced herd immunity is a lie used to frighten doctors, public-health officials, other medical personnel, and the public into accepting vaccinations. Read more…
A sane voice in a mad world run by mad people
Thank you for your article! I’m passing it on to all my friends and my clientele. Thank you for being a doctor with the inner strength and wherewithal to speak on this subject. I’m a pediatric sleep and health consultant and i see children everyday experiencing the negative effects of vaccinations, yet trying to convince people that they are mostly unnecessary and detrimental to child health usually lands me in hot water and part of that “fringe” you speak of. Hopefully one day we’ll be the mainstream.
All very interesting but could you list some of your peer reviewed articles on this subject?
If this is to become mainstream, as Andrea implies,people will require hard evidence rather than assertions
Would be interested to hear how polio has almost been eliminated too.
Someone sent me an email stating “The best evidence, in my practical opinion, is “personal stories” in response to my reply above.
Personal stories are not the same as peer reviewed articles. Speaking of peers, you include Andrew Wakefield in the list on the right. Is this the same person? From wiki
Andrew Jeremy Wakefield (born 1957) is a British former surgeon and medical researcher, known for his fraudulent 1998 research paper in support of the now-discredited claim that there is a link between the administration of the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine and the appearance of autism and bowel disease.
Four years after the publication of the paper, other researchers’ results had still failed to reproduce Wakefield’s findings or confirm his hypothesis of a relation between childhood gastrointestinal disorders and autism. A 2004 investigation by Sunday Times reporter Brian Deer identified undisclosed financial conflicts of interest on Wakefield’s part, and most of his coauthors then withdrew their support for the study’s interpretations.
