An Incident that Further Exposes the Vaccination Herd Immunity Hoax
by Paul Fassa
One of Offit's seven published books is titled Deadly Choices: How the Anti-Vaccine Movement Threatens Us All. Unfortunately, this as he remarked about himself once, is highly regarded and eagerly interviewed by the mainstream media in addition to his books being favorably reviewed.
Parents of vaccinated children tend to keep their kids from being around children not vaccinated. The question they should ask is “if vaccines really work, why are you concerned”? But logic doesn't work on these people.
Whenever an outbreak of a childhood disease occurs among a highly vaccinated population, they're supported by “official” statements in the media of how the outbreak was created by those little monsters of evil parents who refused the shots. There have been schools who ban unvaccinated kids from attending during a childhood disease outbreak that usually involves vaccinated children!
Makes no sense at all. It just indicates that vaccinations don't work, if you're rational. But vaccine advocates are not so rational. That's why fear and guilt work so well on the vast majority who favor vaccinations.
Anti-vaccine advocates are more concerned about the right to say no to vaccines than wiping vaccines from the face of the earth, although that's not a bad idea, eh? So what's the big deal about a minority of the wise and informed refusing vaccinations?
Well it threatens Big Pharma's bottom line, especially with their sales to governments and efforts to increase sales by having governments enforce them on newborn babies and preschool children.
So they use the herd immunity guilt card and wave it in our faces, which is if at least 90 percent of any population is vaccinated against a particular disease, that disease vanishes due to “herd immunity”.
That can be enough to make anyone sitting on the fence of to vaccinate or not vaccinate succumb by feeling guilty about breaking the attempt at herd immunity. The big lie that refusing vaccinations endangers humanity is used to push guilt buttons, and it's not true at all.
A Recent Herd Immunity Lie Example
The most recent glaring example occurred on a small Navy ship. The Department of Defense (DOD) requires that at least 90 percent of all military installation units are injected with annual flu shots to avoid incapacitating flu breakouts within them.
The USS Ardent, a small mine countermeasures (mine sweeper) ship with a crew of 102, of whom 99 percent had received flu shots, reported a breakout of influenza with 25 crew members reporting sick with influenza like illnesses (ILI).
Tests confirmed that 20 of those in sick bay were afflicted with influenza type A, 18 with subtype H3N2. The ship, docked in San Diego, sent everyone home while thoroughly disinfecting the vessel. Tight quarters demanded by the small ship were blamed for the event, even though virtually everyone had been given the flu shot.
The CDC actually reported this episode factually while including the propaganda that since the DODs declaration of ensuring vaccine inoculations in 1950, the military has been well protected against those diseases.
Well, I was in the Navy from 1961 to 1965. I received a polio vaccination at the Great Lakes Naval Training Center early and wound up spending 10 days or so in sick bay with a stubborn flu like illness. After that, I was on two different old fashioned diesel-electric submarines and a destroyer escort.
These vessels, especially the old subs, were small with cramped quarters. There was no such thing as a flu shot then, but there were no flu breakouts either. Individuals occasionally got sick, but there were no flu breakouts on those vessels or any others in the submarine squadron in Key West, Florida and the destroyer escort squadron in Newport, Rhode Island.
There have been many breakouts of measles, whooping cough, and mumps among highly vaccinated preschool and school populations over the past few years. Those news items don't get past local or alternative media coverages.
One of the PR tricks is to claim unvaccinated kids caused them. Another excuse is those kids needed more than even the recommended amount of booster shots. Trick number three, tuh-dah, label the breakout, polio like diseases with different names, thus creating new diseases to create yet more vaccines.
Meanwhile, a lawsuit against Merck, filed by two former whistle blower employees of Merck a couple of years ago, which claims Merck lied about the MMR vaccine efficacy has been approved by a judge to be heard in court despite attempts by Merck to squash it.
The right to say no to vaccinations by individuals and parents needs to be preserved. If the rest of humanity was to get sicker or die from vaccinations, so be it. The AMA and Big Pharma have plenty of business from existing fools. Some of us are content with our immune systems and don't feel the need to create more business for the disease-care system.
