The CDC wasn’t the only party involved in the case study that found that even those who had been twice immunized by the MMR booster actually contracted the infection and spread it to others, even including those who had also been immunized from it. This is interesting, considering the way the recent measles outbreak in California is being politicized not only to push for vaccines, but also to demonize those who don’t vaccinate. Global Research reported:
This erroneous thinking has led the public, media and government alike to attribute the origin of measles outbreaks, such as the one recently reported at Disney, to the non-vaccinated, even though 18% of the measles cases occurred in those who had been vaccinated against it – hardly the vaccine’s claimed “99% effective.” The vaccine’s obvious fallibility is also indicated by the fact that that the CDC now requires two doses.
…[N]ot only does the MMR vaccine fail to consistently confer immunity, but those who have been “immunized” with two doses of MMR vaccine can still transmit the infection to others – a phenomena no one is reporting on in the rush to blame the non- or minimally-vaccinated for the outbreak.
Last year, a groundbreaking study published in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases…looked at evidence from the 2011 New York measles outbreak that individuals with prior evidence of measles vaccination and vaccine immunity were both capable of being infected with measles and infecting others with it (secondary transmission).
This finding even aroused the attention of mainstream news reporting, such as this Sciencemag.org article from April 2014 titled “Measles Outbreak Traced to Fully Vaccinated Patient for First Time.”
Titled, “Outbreak of Measles Among Persons With Prior Evidence of Immunity, New York City, 2011,” the groundbreaking study acknowledged that, “Measles may occur in vaccinated individuals, but secondary transmission from such individuals has not been documented.”
In order to find out if measles vaccine compliant individuals are capable of being infected and transmitting the infection to others, they evaluated suspected cases and contacts exposed during a 2011 measles outbreak in NYC. They focused on one patient who had received two doses of measles-containing vaccine and found that,
“Of 88 contacts, four secondary cases were confirmed that had either two doses of measles-containing vaccine or a past positive measles IgG antibody. All cases had laboratory confirmation of measles infection, clinical symptoms consistent with measles, and high avidity IgG antibody characteristic of a secondary immune response.”
Their remarkable conclusion:
“This is the first report of measles transmission from a twice vaccinated individual. The clinical presentation and laboratory data of the index were typical of measles in a naïve individual. Secondary cases had robust anamnestic antibody responses. No tertiary cases occurred despite numerous contacts. This outbreak underscores the need for thorough epidemiologic and laboratory investigation of suspected measles cases regardless of vaccination status.”
Did you follow that? A twice-vaccinated individual, from a NYC measles outbreak, was found to have transmitted measles to four of her contacts, two of which themselves had received two doses of MMR vaccine and had prior presumably protective measles IgG antibody results.
Global warming and vaccinations are two subjects that involve very little science and a whole lot of politics, power-playing and hype. Just like the green industry profits from the manmade global warming scare, vaccine manufacturers profit immensely from the idea that our immune systems are totally ineffective, and in order for us to survive past three years of age, we need dozens of shots.
I think the truth is usually somewhere in the middle of all the hype on both sides. When vaccines are used wisely in the proper scenarios, they can be very effective.
The problem is that we have an addiction to vaccinations resultant from an abject fear that we might contract some deadly illness. It’s that paranoia that’s fueled this push to pump dozens of vaccinations in our kids’ bodies. And the drug companies depend on that fear that’s largely propagated by the bought-and-paid-for-by-Big-Pharma media.
The best means of defense against diseases is a healthy immune system, which is not obtained through constant injections of live, attenuated or dead viruses. As Barbara Loe Fisher asked: … [I]s it better to protect children against infectious disease early in life through temporary immunity from a vaccine, or are they better off contracting certain contagious infections in childhood and attaining permanent immunity?” All things considered, I think the former is preferable.
Which means, all those who contracted measles in the recent California “outbreak” who had not been vaccinated are now more protected against the viral infection than those who were vaccinated.
