Recently Vaccinated Kids Are Spreading Pertussis Everywhere

Why should pediatricians suspect that a fully vaccinated child with either no symptoms or few symptoms is infected with and transmitting pertussis, when the CDC and AAP have taught them to believe vaccine orthodoxy is the truth and nothing but the truth?

There was fuss in the media last month about a little study of 26 vaccinated Florida pre-schoolers, who got sick with B. pertussis whooping cough or had pertussis-like symptoms during a five-month period in 2013.1 All of the children, aged one to five years attending the Tallahassee preschool, had received three to four doses of pertussis vaccine (DtaP) according to the CDC recommended schedule. Nervous doctors and media pundits selling vaccine orthodoxy warned that vaccine critics would make a big deal out of it.2

Let’s examine the evidence to see if it is logical to make a big deal out of kids in a preschool classroom infecting each other, plus infecting other kids in their homes with whooping cough, even though all of them had been vaccinated.

Pertussis Vaccine Only 45% Effective in Vaccinated Preschoolers

The study, conducted by CDC and Florida public health officials, was published in Emerging Infectious Diseases on January 15, 2016 and revealed that pertussis vaccine effectiveness among children attending the preschool was estimated to be 45%. The average number of days from last vaccination to onset of pertussis symptoms in the pre-schoolers was 22 months, with seven children having been vaccinated within the previous year.

During their investigation, public health officials found that “it was apparent that many physicians were hesitant to provide a diagnosis of pertussis and did not test for this disease, given the recent vaccination history of the patients and despite reporting of an ongoing laboratory confirmed pertussis outbreak.”  They added that, “pertussis vaccination should not dissuade physicians from diagnosing, testing, or treating persons with compatible illness for pertussis.”

The fact that doctors are not bothering to check to see if vaccinated kids are infected with and transmitting pertussis should come as no surprise to public health officials and medical trade associations like the American Academy of Pediatrics. They have spent decades carefully teaching pediatricians and other vaccine providers to believe that vaccines are nearly 100% effective and safe, and that anyone who believes otherwise is an ignorant fool, a danger to the public health, and in need of re-education or punishment.3 4 5

Pediatricians Failing to Diagnose Pertussis in Vaccinated Children

The Florida study’s authors pointed out the obvious: the failure of pediatricians and other vaccine providers to diagnose pertussis infection in a vaccinated child is not helpful. “The spectrum of illness for pertussis in vaccinated children can vary widely and is often mild, with few classic symptoms of pertussis. Hesitation by providers in reporting presumptive pertussis delays public health response to prevent continued transmission of pertussis in the community,” they said.

It is understandable why pediatricians do not want to admit to themselves, much less admit to parents, that a vaccine they insist children and pregnant women get to prevent pertussis actually does not do that most of the time. Why should pediatricians suspect that a fully vaccinated child with either no symptoms or few symptoms is infected with and transmitting pertussis, when the CDC and AAP have taught them to believe vaccine orthodoxy is the truth and nothing but the truth? The media dutifully reinforces vaccine myths by not questioning vaccine orthodoxy, either.6

CDC and AAP officials have only themselves to blame for pediatricians sticking their heads in the sand when the message they have put out for 50 years and still put out is “Pertussis, or whooping cough, can be prevented with vaccines.”7 Clearly, for the recently vaccinated pre-school children in Florida up to date on their DTaP shots, the pertussis vaccine prevented whooping cough less than half the time!

If a car seat belt failed more than half the time, it would pulled off the market.

Tdap Fails to Protect California Adolescents After One Year

On the heels of the Florida toddler study, a Kaiser Permanente study published in Pediatrics concluded that Tdap vaccine effectiveness was only 69% among 1200 California adolescents given Tdap during pertussis outbreaks between 2010 and 2014 in that state.8 Vaccine effectiveness waned to less than 9% after four years. And, despite a Tdap adolescent coverage of more than 90% in northern California, they had the highest incidence of pertussis of any age group in 2014.

In a February 5, 2016 Kaiser Permanente press release, the study’s lead author basically called routine Tdap booster shots for all adolescents a failed disease control strategy. Dr. Nicola Klein said,

Because Tdap provides reasonable short-term protection, it may contain whooping cough more effectively if it is administered to adolescents in anticipation of a local outbreak rather than on a routine basis at age 11 or 12.9

The California legislature should take note since they passed a law last year denying a school education to children who have not gotten a Tdap booster shot at age 11 or 12 years old.10

Another Study: Siblings Major Source of Pertussis for Infants

It is interesting that the media attention being given to the small DTaP Florida pre-school study and the Tdap Kaiser Permanente adolescent study has overshadowed a much bigger story about pertussis vaccine failure that was revealed in a study published in October 2015 in Pediatrics.11 That study conducted by public health officials evaluated reported pertussis cases in the U.S. between 2006 and 2013 among children under age one and revealed “the emergence of siblings as the major reservoir of infection.” The researchers concluded that infants are more likely to get whooping cough from their brothers and sisters than from their mothers.

When a source of pertussis infection was known (in 44%  of infant cases), it was 36% from siblings; 21%  from mothers; 10%  from fathers; 15%  from grandparents, uncles and aunts; and 11% from other sources.

Study authors also concluded that:

  • Increasing Pertussis Incidence: “Despite high or increasing coverage with pertussis vaccines, the incidence of disease has been slowly increasing in a number of countries, with notable epidemic peaks in recent years;
  • Most Pertussis In Vaccinated Children: Most pertussis in the US is occurring among “recently vaccinated children and adolescents;”
  • Shift Began in 2008 with Tdap: “We observed the beginning of the shift from mothers to siblings in 2008, three years after the introduction of Tdap in the US for routine use among adolescents and adults;”
  • More Tdap Useless: “Additional doses of Tdap are unlikely to reduce the overall burden of pertussis;”
  • Cocooning Doesn’t Work: “Revaccination of adult cocoon members is unlikely to halt transmission of disease to infants if siblings are the predominant reservoirs of infection;”
  • Pertussis Transmission Without Symptoms: “Even in settings where all household contacts are up-to-date with pertussis vaccinations, asymptomatic transmission of pertussis may occur, further impeding the success of the cocooning strategy;”
  • Infection Sources Often Unknown: “A source of infection is identified less than half the time, suggesting either infection by someone outside the household or asymptomatic transmission of disease.”

Children and Adults Transmitting Pertussis With Few or No Symptoms

The inconvenient truth about pertussis vaccine is that a lot of children and adults transmitting pertussis don’t have classic symptoms and are not being lab tested and this was a major problem for study researchers trying to identify the source of pertussis infection in infants under age one. They said,

Potential sources who were asymptomatic or had mild illness without cough may have also been missed in our study as we relied solely on parent report without laboratory testing of household members or other infant contacts.

The other problem for study researchers was that they didn’t know if people with cough symptoms had pertussis or another type of respiratory bacterial or viral infection. They admitted, “…. additionally without laboratory confirmation, we were unable to determine if B. pertussis was the actual cause of cough illness in the identified SOIs (sources of infection).”

Pertussis Vaccine Acquired Herd Immunity Is A Myth

Vaccine orthodoxy dictates that if 90% or more of people in a community get vaccinated, the community will be protected from infectious disease. The federal government’s Healthy People 2020 Immunization Goals confirms that vaccine orthodoxy tenet.12

However, the CDC now quietly admits on its website that “the bacteria that cause pertussis are always changing at the genetic level” and there is “waning immunity” from the vaccine and that ”an increase in reported pertussis cases began to rise in the U.S. in the 1980’s,13 when more than 94% of kindergarten children had received 4 to 5 whole cell pertussis-containing DPT shots.14 Today, 94% to 98% of kindergarteners have 4 to 5 acellular pertussis-containing DTaP shots,15 plus 88% of children aged 13 to 17 years have gotten an additional Tdap booster shot.16

Clearly, six doses of pertussis vaccine given to children between two months and 16 years of age cannot prevent pertussis infection and asymptomatic transmission of infection by vaccinated persons. Pertussis vaccination does not prevent fully vaccinated children and adults from transmitting the infection to infants under two months of age, who are the ones most likely to die from complications of pertussis.

Pertussis vaccine acquired herd immunity is a myth.

Despite a three-decade 94% or greater pertussis vaccination rate among U.S. children with both whole cell DPT and acellular DTaP vaccines—a coverage rate that well exceeds the government’s Healthy People 2020 Immunization Goal of 90% coverage—B. pertussis whooping cough is circulating, often silently circulating, throughout our population without being diagnosed. And it has been doing that for a long, long time.17

The Solution? Vaccinate Pregnant Women

So what is the solution that public health officials have come up with? It is irrational and completely unscientific but here it is: vaccinate all pregnant women. After confirming the ineffectiveness of pertussis vaccine to prevent infection and asymptomatic transmission among vaccinated children, the public health official authors of the October 2015 Pediatrics study nevertheless concluded that,

Strong support of vaccination during pregnancy is needed to maximize the protection of infants in the first critical months of life.

How sad that instead of simply informing the public that the pertussis vaccine is a failure, health officials desperately clinging to vaccine orthodoxy are pushing pertussis vaccine risks on vulnerable pregnant women and have been dong that since 2011, without proving safety or effectiveness first.18

    Few people reazile that immunity from their pertussis vaccine wanes after five to 10 years. Pertussis vaccination is only currently approved for those under the age of 7 years. The number of cases of pertussis is increasing the most among adolescents and young adults. Pertussis is an incredibly uncomfortable disease that can certainly impact a teenager’s life significantly. However, the highest rates of mortality occur in infants under the age of 3 months. If you look at varying data sets, they all support the fact that in the majority of cases, infant cases can be traced back to an adolescent within the home as the source of transmission. So adolescents are not, in general, protected against pertussis, and it’s important to protect them, not only for their own health and safety, but also for our infant population. In a recent survey conducted by the Society of Adolescent Medicine, we found that 85 percent of parents of adolescents did not know that the duration of pertussis protection is relatively brief. Immunity from childhood pertussis vaccination wanes after five to 10 years.

      According to the Florida study, the children were preschoolers who had received 3 to 4 DTaP vaccines so we are not talking about waning effectiveness over 5 to 10 years. It should be obvious that the vaccines do not offer any protection and the shedding of bacteria has the potential to infect everyone regardless of their vaccination status.
      You say that it is important to protect adolescents. Are you suggesting more vaccinations or are you open to alternatives to vaccines? Alternatives to vaccines is a scary thought to those who have been brainwashed into thinking that only vaccines are safe and effective. Mounting anecdotal evidence is revealing that vaccines are neither safe or effective. The medical profession’s refusal to consider anything other than vaccines as a treatment for pertussis is causing continued illness and death with no relief in the near future.

    Pertussis vaccine has never worked. If you can get a hold of articles dated pre 1980’s it clearly shows that it has always been a dangerous vaccine.

    Two current studies speak loudly to the fact the vaccine has never worked:
    -Study titled: “Acellular Pertussis vaccines protect against disease but fail to prevent infection and transmission in a nonhuman primate model,” used infant baboons to test the hypothesis that “current acellular pertussis vaccines fail to prevent colonization and transmission” of B. Pertussis. (there is no vaccine for Bordetella Pertussis virus) http://www.pnas (dot) org/content/111/2/787.

    Lead author Tod Merkel did comment to the New York Times that when exposed to B. Pertussis after recently getting vaccinated, you could be an asymptomatic carrier and infect others, saying: “When you’re newly vaccinated, you are an asymptomatic carrier, which is good for you, but not for the population.” According to Tod Merkel of the FDA, it has now become clear that the vaccine does almost nothing to prevent the spread of whooping cough. Although it does seem to prevent about 80 percent of people from showing symptoms of the disease, it does not prevent them from catching it or spreading it.

    -Study: Whooping cough resurgence due to vaccinated people not knowing they’re infectious? clinicalnews(dot)org/2015/06/24/study-whooping-cough-resurgence-due-to-vaccinated-people-not-knowing-theyre-infectious/comment-page-1/. From study/article:
    “a detailed epidemiological model of whooping cough transmission to conclude that acellular vaccines may well have contributed to — even exacerbated — the recent pertussis outbreak by allowing infected individuals without symptoms to unknowingly spread pertussis multiple times in their lifetimes.

    ‘There could be millions of people out there with just a minor cough or no cough spreading this potentially fatal disease without knowing it,’ said Althouse. ‘The public health community should act now to better assess the true burden of pertussis infection.’ What’s worse, their model shows that if the disease can be spread through vaccinated, asymptomatic individuals essentially undetected.

The track record of medical irresponsibility pertaining to vaccines has been going on for longer than I have been alive. Where is the ethics boards regarding these proven shortcomings? It would seem that if the medical ethics watchdogs were operating unbiasedly and honestly, they’d yank the majority of licenses for the senior doctors pushing and developing these dangerous substances.

    VACCINATED INDIVIDUALS ARE SHEDDING DISEASE!!
    Vaccinating pregnant women is the newest fad. Previously doctors learned not to give pregnant women any medication.
    Pregnant women are not supposed to drink, smoke and do drugs — but all of a sudden they now can be vaccinated???

    As we have seen in the 2009 Mexican flu pLandemic, vaccines mean serious damage or even death to the foetus — at the time there have been hundreds of spontaneous abortions.

    1. The pertussis toxin damages the brain and nerve cells (Russell Blaylock).
    2. The vaccine-induced fever in the mothers damages their fetuses (Viera Scheibner PhD): we are being led to believe that it is Zika that causes microcephaly. In reality it is the mandated DTaP vaccine in pregnant women in Brazil that has caused these malformations of brain and skull…
    see http://www.bmj.com/content/352/bmj.i657/rapid-responses and http://www.bmj.com/content/352/bmj.i657/rapid-responses

    The propaganda slogan that the whooping cough vaccine is effective, is total nonsense.
    Reality is: NO vaccine will EVER protect against ANYTHING.
    EVERY vaccine will always overload the body and its organs and systems with masses of toxic chemicals and metals, as well as with unknown quantities of unknown microbial contaminations from the foreign tissues on which the viral and microbial components of the vaccines have been cultured.

    True health never is a matter of not enough medication and not enough vaccines.
    True health always is a matter of food that is providing enough minerals, vitamins, trace elements and unadulterated fatty acids.

    The following was the response I received from Senator Miller in regards to the reason that bill SB 162 exists. I have responded, would like the thoughts of others and hopefully letters sent opposing this bill.

    Thank you for contacting me regarding Senate Bill 162 which deals with hospital employee immunizations. Your thoughts and opinions are important to me and I respect your comments.

    Senate Bill 162 currently would require hospitals to administer certain immunizations to those employees that routinely have direct contact with patients. These immunizations would be for influenza, Varicella, Measles, mumps, and rubella, tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis. However, there would be an exemption process for those employees with documented medical exceptions or with a religious belief preventing the immunization.

    I understand the personal nature of immunizations and personal health but also realize that medical professionals are dedicated to protecting patients and preventing further disease. I filed this bill after being contacted by a fellow Senator and a constituent whose 37 day old baby daughter died after contracting pertussis. The Center for Disease Control was able to track the infection to a nurse that had worked in the hospital where the baby was born and thus infecting the infant that was too young to receive her own immunizations. This bill has been supported by the Indiana Hospital Association and the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC).

    Senate Bill 162 was amended and passed in the Senate Committee on Health and Provider Services and passed in the Senate with a vote of 50-0 and will now be considered by the House of Representatives.

    Thank you again for your message. If I may ever be of assistance, please contact me. senator.miller@iga.in.gov

    Sincerely,

    Patricia Miller

      “I filed this bill after being contacted by a fellow Senator and a constituent whose 37 day old baby daughter died after contracting pertussis.”
      So a single case is what got this Bill to be filed… One supposed death of an infant tracked by The CDC with irrefutable results of where the infant contracted the disease – simply amazing.
      Even if it were true, the Bill is simply useless if not unconstitutional, for if the nurse who supposedly gave pertussis to the infant had a religious belief exemption on file which This Bill provides, the death of the infant could not have been prevented by SB 162 anyway.

      I am wondering how The Center for Disease Control was able to track the infection to a nurse that had worked in the hospital where the baby was born? And, if that nurse had been immunized?

      I think if this were accurate the CDC would put out a press release and it would be on the evening news everywhere, so I would ask for verification on this. And not just that one nurse in a big hospital came down with it, therefore that is the conclusion, even though that nurse may have never been near that baby.

      In other words, is this documented scientific proof or even close?

      “I filed this bill after being contacted by a fellow Senator and a constituent whose 37 day old baby daughter died after contracting pertussis.”

      -I would ask to see the PCR test that was used to trace the source.
      -I would ask to see the death certificate of the child. I’m stating this because there doesn’t seem to be a child born on the planet who dies from a supposed vaccine preventable disease that doesn’t make it into the media. The CDC/Pharma just loves this sort of PR. If the basis of a bill that’s going to affect thousands of people is based on the death of a child who supposeable died from pertussis at least the Senator can do is identify the child and the family. If the family made a request for the bill there should be no problem with the identify.
      -I would remind the Senator that if 1 nurse had pertussis than others would have it and could be asymptomatic carriers. That’s not how viruses work. Who else was tested.
      -What strain of pertussis did the child have? Was it a vaccine strain or endemic?
      -How many other did they do a PCR test on to determine who was infected?
      -Are there any press releases on the death of the child which compelled this woman to suggest a move that would force poisons on her constitutes? I would love to read it.

      I personally don’t believe the Senator is submitting this bill because 1 child died, tragic as it is. I think she is lying through her teeth. I would check to see if there is some money being moved under the table.

    Recently our child care center made a decision that unvaccinated kids could not attend the center.
    One of the difficulties in educating people about vaccinations is that it requires them to change their overall thinking about their world view. From an early age, we’re taught that doctors have all the answers; the truth is that medicine is not an exact science – even some doctors will tell you that. However, it varies from place to place. People are to trust those in authority, and that includes government health officials. However, people would disappointed if they recognized that sometimes, even health officials are sometimes just “doing their job” without any question as to the science, the evidence or the truth about things.
    If vaccine information is to make headway, it is important, I think, that it does a better job of informing the public of alternatives – what is a better way? Both vaccinated and unvaccinated people can contract illnesses? In world that is fearful of disease and illness, how do we build a solid case and promote it more publicly that there is a better way. Until vaccines become the next tobacco or sugar product – products that are advertise as good for you, but when the truth is revealed, people realize that it is not that good for you. Somehow, there has to be economic pressure put on the vaccine industry to build alternatives and freedom of choice for our health. This is a clear example of how “vaccination” promoted a lie that somehow vaccines are the only answer to overall health and wellness – in this case, “vaccination” was what allowed for the spread of illness.

    Th acellular pertussis vaccine (the one currently in use) DOES NOT prevent transmission. It took the FDA 17 years since its introduction to find that out:
    http://www.fda.gov/NewsEvents/Newsroom/PressAnnouncements/ucm376937.htm

    This vaccine does not provide mucosal immunity. So vaccinated individuals become asymptomatic carriers and transmitters of the bacteria.

    Plain and simple: VACCINATION IS NOT IMMUNIZAITON!!

    The article is correct, traditional doctors and pediatricians have it drilled into their heads by Big Pharma that Big Pharma is the be all miracle pill/vaccine cure. When they are challenged by an educated patient to the adverse reactions and dangers of any medication or vaccine the doctor either is a deer in headlights, or they get hostile and want to report the patient to their insurance company, and in the case of a child, report the parents to Social Services for “neglect” for NOT allowing their child to be vaccinated. It is just disgusting and pathetic.

    How many of these doctors vaccinate their children? NOT MANY!! The only reason these doctors (family practice and pediatrician) through fear and threats, demand your precious child be damaged is because Big Pharma is behind all this madness. Big Pharma has lined the pockets of the CDC, FDA, Congress and the American Academy of Pediatrics and they are beholding to Big Pharma because of the big bucks they got to pass unconstitutional laws, approve dangerous medications and vaccines and then perpetuate the lies.

    I believe that they all need to be sued for child abuse! My heart breaks for parents who believe they are being protective and responsible for giving their child vaccines all because the law says so. NOW, is the time for each and every parent, to educate themselves about vaccines and the dangers, so that they can powerfully challenge any doctor. God has appointed each and every parent to be the protector of their child. Why would any parent submit their child to abuse like this? Do you think any of the above mentioned entities give a hoot about what happens to your child? NO! They have been paid to protect Big Pharma.

    Realize this, if your child is damaged in any way, shape or form and you sue, you WILL NOT be having a trial by a judge and jury with your lawsuit against Big Pharma and your doctor, your lawsuit will go to arbitration, to be settled by a bunch of nitwits who have as well been paid off by Big Pharma. Our Congressmen passed a bill that exclude drug companies and doctors from being sued from vaccine damage. So what does that tell you? It says THEY KNOW that vaccines are harmful!!

    I have two friends whose granddaughters who were harmed by vaccines. One had a “rare” brain tumor and she passed away in October, two months before her 4th birthday, the other friend, her granddaughter was diagnosed with acerebral ataxia. She has had to have extensive physical therapy to walk, hold her arms up and uses a walker.. This occurred shortly after getting the MMR. When each of the sets of parents inquired that the chance of the vaccines causing these problems, their doctors vehemently said, “NO. that there was no way that the vaccines could have caused this.” Really? This just shows how either brain dead, brainwashed, dumb and blind they are, or they are protecting their livelihood and dare NOT speak out against Big Pharma, lest they be blackballed by their peers.

    The vaccination scheduled doses for children from birth to 18 years old are NOW up to 74 vaccines. This is disturbing!!! WHY? Why do these precious children need 74 doses of poison? Have you ever asked why so many children are getting brain tumors, leukemia, blood dyscrasias, auto-immune problems, neuromuscular problems, autism, ADHD, etc? Ask yourself, what is the common link or thread that runs through all these diseases? VACCINES!! This was not a problem in the 40’s-60’s, all these childhood issues have only arisen since the increase of vaccines.

    BIG PHARMA IS USING YOUR CHILD TO TRY THEIR VACCINES ON. THEY KNOW THAT THERE IS NO PARENT IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WHO WOULD WILLING SUBMIT THEIR CHILD TO EXPERIMENTATION OF VACCINES, BUT IF THERE ARE LAWS THAT SAY THE VACCINES ARE MANDATORY BEFORE THEY CAN ENTER SCHOOL, THEN, YOUR CHILD NOW IS IN A LEGAL EXPERIMENT.

    BIG PHARMA USES THE WORLD AS THEIR LABORATORY, IN CASE YOU HAVE NOT REALIZED IT. Most drugs are used on third world countries, under the Gates Foundation and Big Pharma and, Big Pharma’s reasoning is that they are so populated they can “afford to lose a few children and adults.” Big Pharma experimented with Gardasil on girls between the ages 8-16 in India, of that group half of them died within days of receiving the vaccine. This is just plain evil and disgusting!! THERE IS A ZERO REASON FOR ANY YOUNG CHILD TO RECEIVE A VITAMIN K AND HEP B VACCINE 5 MINUTES AFTER BIRTH OR TO RECEIVE AN HIV VACCINE FROM AGES 8-16!! Big Pharma is behind all this hype!! The Vitamin K shot causes the bilirubin level to rise and can cause brain damage. Unless you have hepatitis, DO NOT LET THEM GIVE A HEP B SHOT OR THE VITAMIN K SHOTS SHORTLY AFTER THE BIRTH OF YOUR BABY!!

    PARENTS!!! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, EDUCATE YOURSELVES ABOUT VACCINES AND THE DANGERS. PLEASE PROTECT YOUR PRECIOUS CHILD FROM THESE ADVERSE REACTIONS BY REFUSING TO GET THEM. The greatest thing as a parent you can do is, perhaps homeschool your precious child to AVOID the MANDATORY requirement. Homeschooling is the greatest thing you can do for your child. They won’t be exposed to the lies of the world. You will have control over what they are taught, they won’t be exposed to peer pressure, bullying, inappropriate sex education and the indoctrination that there must be something wrong with them if they feel like they are of the opposite sex, they will avoid the socialism indoctrination that now the Dept. of Ed. is forcing on your child, they will avoid being forced to participate in activities that violate your religious beliefs. You will have the opportunity to instill in them the morals, values, Godly principles and the ability for them to think for themselves and to be responsible adults.

    Two good books that will help get you started in educating yourselves and to challenge any argument that “vaccines are not dangerous”, and perhaps some of you parents can start a group and discuss these books and articles on NVIC to arm yourselves. KNOWLEDGE IS POWER!!

    The two books are:

    DISSOLVING ILLUSIONS – Disease, Vaccines, and the Forgotten History.
    Authors:Suzanne Humphries, MD and Roman Bystrianyk

    VACCINE EPIDEMIC – How Corporate Greed, Biased Science, and Coercive Government Threaten Our Human Rights, Our Health, and Our Children.
    Authors: Louise Kuo Habakus, M.A. and Mary Holland, J.D.

    Also, subscribe to the National Vaccine Information Center and then, SHARE THE INFORMATION!!

    I witnessed this not too long ago. I work in a hospital ICU and a Physician with several students came into my office for a huddle about a patient with a problem they were trying to diagnose. One of the students suggested the symptoms looked like they could be caused by a virus. The doctor asked if the kid had the vaccination for it yet. The answer was yes. So the physician said that eliminated the possibility of the virus being the problem. End of that discussion.

      This is an excerpt from a recent paper that I wrote during my graduate work for a Masters in Nursing Education. I am very much pro choice when it comes to vaccines and any medical procedure because informed consent is fundamental to medicine. I also stood up against the facility where I work concerning mandatory vaccines for flu specifically. I won and they accepted mine and many others declination and revised their unlawful policy.

      Pertussis, which is the P in the DTAP, has seen a resurgence and it isn’t among the unvaccinated. In the 2013 Meeting of the Board of Scientific Counselors, Office of Infectious Diseases and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia, the speaker stated, “the recent resurgence of pertussis has been associated with waning immunity over time… and findings indicated that 85% of the isolates were PRN-deficient and vaccinated patients had significantly higher odds than unvaccinated patients of being infected with PRN-deficient strains”(Schuchat, 2013, p. 6). This underscores numerous studies indicating that the immunity, thought to be achieved, through vaccination, might not be as good as once assumed and the science is settled on one score: viruses do mutate.

    With all these vaxed kids getting pertussis, I wonder, is there a difference in having a vaccine strain pertussis or the wild strain pertussis?
    I grew up when we were still supposed to have all child hood diseases, and I had all but rubella. At 14 they mandated rubella shot for all girls that hadn’t had it. In a titer, I have better antibodies and immunity to the diseases I had.
    There are plenty of studies showing that having pertussis , measles etc.. as a kid (wild strain) prevents you not only from getting it again, but reduces risk of many other diseases including cancer later.
    would the vax strain be different?
    Or if not, is this just Mother Natures way of bringing these diseases back to restrengthen our immune system after 3-4 decades of way too many vaccines and GMO foods wrecking our immune system.?

    Our college age sons received the meningitis vaccine at our local clinic one Friday when they came home to visit/work. Saturday morning, our one son woke up with his pupils so dilated that we could not see the blue of his eyes. He complained of immense pain in his head, achy body, then literally passed out on the kitchen floor. We rushed him into the emergency room at the hospital. Enroute, one of our other children called us to tell us that our other son passed out on the floor as well with the same exact symtoms. So one of our other children drove this son into the emergency room as well. The doctor and nurses were all concerned and began to decry the immunization methods of the college (they assumed the boys had received these immunizations on campus), until they learned the truth about them receiving the shots via their own medical institution.

    The narcissistic doctor was convinced that our sons were reacting to illegal drugs or alcohol, so their blood was tested for those substances. Our kids do not do drugs or drink, and rarely take a Tylenol for pain as we tried to explain this to the so called doctor. When the results came back negative, he then ordered a test for carbon monoxide poisoning, for he was convinced our sons WERE NOT reacting to the poison of the meningitis vaccine. When the results came back negative, then he came with the theory that our sons were being abused in our home. Another negative accusation of which I was ready to hire a lawyer and sue this non-doctor.

    The doctor actually said this, “It is all probability that this was not a reaction to the vaccine, but a reaction to something else in the environment.”

    Personally, I am not worried about my GMO foods, but I am concerned with the abusive medical system, draining our pocketbooks with their ignorance, arrogance and narcissism, pretending to care. These are wolves in sheep’s clothing.

    Thank you for a thorough and well researched article on whooping cough. My husband and u had the vaccine when our son was a baby and still regret it. My son hasn’t been vaccinated and is one of the healthiest toddlers we know. I used to be a veterinarian and suspected vaccines were linked to increasing chronic illness. One of the common cat vaccines was grown at one point on a medi containing renal tissue and was thought to be linked to renal failure in older cats. There’s a lot more to this than the general public realise or want to face. Good on you for spreading the word. I also write about vaccines and our choices and will be referencing your site. Thanks again

    Dr. Humphries has a Vitamin C protocol to heal pertussis. You can find it online. It’s worth reading. She also notes that Vitamin C deficiency plays a role in many cases of SIDS.
