The Injection Deception: Deconstructing the Science of Vaccine Efficacy
The Progressive Radio Network
On July 1st, California’s controversial SB 277 bill became law. The measure requires all school aged children to receive every mandated vaccine or be excluded from public and private classroom settings as well as day care facilities. Other than homeschooling their kids, parents who object to the full vaccination schedule are left with no options.
If millions of children throughout California will be forced by the state to receive over three dozen vaccines, we would assume these vaccines’ benefits are well established by scientific evidence. Unfortunately, just a cursory glance at the headlines in vaccine efficacy research from 2016 reveal this is simply not the case:
⦁ Fueling doubts about the effectiveness of the mumps vaccine was a 2016 outbreak among students at Harvard University. Incredibly, all of the 40 students who contracted mumps had been vaccinated for the disease. (1) The outbreak occurred despite attempts on the part of Harvard health authorities to isolate students who were suffering from the virus. (2)
⦁ The results of a study released in April 2016 raised more questions over the effectiveness of the flu vaccine. Researchers at the CDC and University of Michigan published a study in The Journal of Infectious Diseases showing that the efficacy of immunization seems to wane even over the course of a single flu season. The efficacy of the live attenuated flu vaccine was measured at only 38% among healthy adults ages 49 and under. (3)
⦁ CDC researchers made startling conclusions about the effectiveness of the pertussis vaccine in an article published in 2016 in the journal Emerging Infectious Diseases. The study, titled Sustained Transmission of Pertussis in Vaccinated, 1–5-Year-Old Children in a Preschool, Florida, USA, examined the efficacy of the whooping cough vaccine in the midst of an outbreak in 2013 in Tallahassee, Florida. The study notes that 50% of all students in one classroom contracted pertussis despite all of them being vaccinated for the disease. As the authors put it, “This outbreak raises concerns about vaccine effectiveness in this preschool age group and reinforces the idea that recent pertussis vaccination should not dissuade physicians from diagnosing, testing or treating persons with compatible illness for pertussis.” (4)
