It's music to my ears and a symphony to my soul. Nurses may finally be coming around and grasping the gravity of how vaccines are damaging our bodies. A study in Vaccine shows that nurses trust in health authorities and vaccination is at an all time low following the H1N1 flu pandemic that was ultimately proven to be a hoax.
The 2009 H1N1 pandemic fraud perpetrated by health authorities worldwide seems to have backfired on those orchestrating the plot. Instead of reinforcing the "claimed" effectiveness of vaccination, it only created more doubt even within conventional medical practitioners themselves.
The study in Vaccine titled "What lied behind the low rates of vaccinations among nurses who treat infants?" is evidence of a growing resistance to vaccinating infants in the developed world.
What is unfortunate is that many of these nurses refuse the vaccinations themselves, yet proceed to administer these poisons to infants to protect their employment. That is quite cowardly, contradictory and at the very least shameful, not only as a health practitioner, but as a human being.
The aim of the study was to identify the barriers and reasons why nurses did not vaccinate themselves against pertussis despite the fact that the pertussis vaccine is the vaccine these nurses administer to infants every day. Two major and two minor themes were identified based on qualitative methods as described in the literature.
Lack of Trust in Health Authorities
The majority of nurses in all focus groups expressed, to varying
degrees, lack of trust in the health authorities regarding their
recommendation to be vaccinated. This was related to the recent
"...there was a drastic change in trust..."
"...I feel a real crisis in trust due to the swine flu affair."
The general mistrust generated during the A/H1N1 pandemic
was directed to the pertussis vaccine when they were asked to
Treatment of Nurses By The Employer
The nurses expressed their frustration with the administration
and complained of the treatment they received from the administration
that had no respect for them as individuals.
Some of the comments were related to the pertussis vaccine
"They should treat us like human beings."
"...we are not soldiers..."
Most of the comments were related to the influenza vaccine:
"...we were threatened, we got multiple emails asking who got
vaccinated and if not why not..."
The Right For Autonomy
The nurses expressed strong feelings against the Ministry of Health's (MOH's) recommendation for Health Care Workers (HCW's) to be vaccinated. They do not want to be told what to do and want to make the decision themselves.
"One nurse in the hospital got pertussis, and infected someoneor
not- don't know. So then 'wham' all the nurses have
to get immunized, so no one got immunized and they are
right!...what are we?- in Soviet Russia?...on principle I am not
getting vaccinated this year."
"...if I want to, I will get the vaccine, I am a grownup, I am
responsible, if I want I will get vaccinated, it will not help whatever
he says (the MD)."
Within this conflict between self and profession they wanted to
be given the opportunity to decide for themselves if to get vaccinated.
They knew they had to work by "the book" regarding the
infants they treat. However, they do not accept the recommendations
blindly for themselves.
"...the line runs between me giving vaccines and receiving vaccines,
I can personally be against vaccinations but am not against
the national policy regarding vaccines, whoever wants can get
"I don't want anybody to make me get immunized, I do not want
to, even if it is mandatory, even if it is pertussis, I don't want to
Mistrust of Health Information
Many nurses felt the information they received was not adequate and did not answer their needs. They felt the information they received did not help them counsel families or make decisions regarding their vaccinations. This was in the context of their mistrust in the MOH.
"With the swine flu there was a lot of disinformation at the
beginning, there was a lot of confusion at the beginning."
"...you can't brain wash us, they expect us to forget what they
said three months ago or a year ago and start again, part of what
we did was not so good, now we do something else... .you can
do that at work but not in my private life, I can't..."
Being a Role Model
Most nurses did not see themselves as role models and did
not think they should reveal their personal behaviors or beliefs to
patients who ask them about themselves. However, a few nurses
found their decision not to be immunized problematic and debates
between nurses started in all focus groups.
"What I do as a person and my beliefs are not relevant at all as
Fear of Side Effects
The nurses reported on their experiences of side effects of vaccines.
They felt that the risk of contracting the diseases and the severity were not worth the risk of being injected with a vaccine that was not in use long enough to know what the side effects were. This was directed towards both influenza and pertussis vaccines, and they felt the authorities were using them as guinea pigs.
The Tides are Turning And The Vaccination Game Will End
I have no doubt that we will see the end of vaccinations one day and it will be exposed for the barbaric practice that it is, especially on infants and children.
The antivaccinationist ideals the nurses expressed are an indication of the resistance within medical circles. Emotions and attitudes such as fear of the vaccines and mistrust in the health authorities and leading factors in lower compliance rates.
These attitudes and emotions may influence their actions toward other vaccines in the future. Eventually physicians and medical students themselves will begin to question vaccine wisdom. The house of cards is crumbling and the vaccination hoax health authorities have promoted to the population is being exposed.
If you still believe in vaccination to prevent disease, I promise that one day you won't!

Babies, Elderly, & Pregnant women receive 250x safe amounts of toxic heavy metals for EACH flu SHOT.
Thimerosal is a widely used vaccine preservative that is present in the majority of flu shots and other vaccines. Thimerosal is 49% mercury by volume, an extremely toxic chemical element that wreaks havoc on the nervous system, neurological function, and overall biological function . Each dose of flu vaccine contains around 25 micrograms of thimerosal, over 250 times the Environmental Protection Agency’s safety limit of exposure. Mercury, a neurotoxin, is especially damaging to undeveloped brains. Considering that 25 micrograms of mercury is considered unsafe by the EPA for any human under 550 pounds, the devastating health effects of mercury on a developing fetus are truly concerning.
Though thimerasol is not entirely mercury, the mercury content is still extremely high, making it very toxic to the human body. Despite highly exceeding the EPA safety standards for mercury content by over 250 times, flu shots are still recommended for children over 6 months and pregnant women.
It seems that the age groups that are urged to receive the flu shot are actually most affected by mercury exposure. Young children, pregnant women, and elderly are the ‘targeted’ demographic of flu shot manufacturers, and these individuals also happen to have the least defense against the elemental neurotoxin mercury.
Dr. Russel Blaylock, a leading neurologist, explains: A recent study looked at the immune reaction in newborn infants up to the age of one year who had received the HepB vaccine to see if their immune reaction differed from adults getting the same vaccine. What they found was that the infant, even after age one year, did react differently. Their antibody levels were substantially higher than adults (3-fold higher) and it remained higher throughout the study. In essence, they found that the babies responded to the vaccine by having an intense Th2 response that persisted long after it should have disappeared, a completely abnormal response.
In 2004, the The Coalition for Mercury-free Drugs petitioned the FDA to limit the use of thimerosal in vaccine citing safety concerns. In a reply made public years later, the FDA denied the request despite overwhelming evidence that mercury is harmful to the human body   . In addition to mercury, vaccines also contain other toxic fillers and preservatives that have been linked to health conditions such as cancer: Aluminum: Also a neurotoxin, aluminum has been linked to Alzheimer’s disease  and other cognitive diseases . Formaldehyde: Among the 8 new substances to be added to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services list of carcinogens. Antibiotics: Various forms include neomycin, streptomycin, and gentamicin. Triton X-100: A detergent that should not be injected into the human bloodstream.
By recommending flu shots to the public, the CDC and vaccine manufacturers are ignoring the warnings of not only major studies conducted by prominent universities, but also the EPA. The EPA’s safety limit of mercury exposure is being exceeded by over 250 times each shot. In addition to a number of other ‘recommended’ vaccines, flu shots are dished out each year to the public, meaning that this exposure increases to 250 times the limit each year. Over a 10 year period, it is possible to exceed the limit by 2500 times simply by receiving a yearly flu shot.

The Flu Vaccine–What Your Doctor Won’t Tell You (Or Probably Doesn’t Even Know)
It’s September. Where I live, September begins as a continuation of summer and ends by transitioning us into fall. The days remain hot, but the nights become cold and warn of impending weather changes. The sun sets earlier, and my thoughts often turn to the festivities fall bring with it. Flu shot signs and tables with bored looking nurses and boxes full of needles join Christmas decorations as they make their seasonal debut into stores. Flu vaccine debates on internet message boards also make their yearly appearance. There, I find many false statements regarding the flu vaccine and influenza itself being swept throughout cyberspace. Let’s identify some of these myths.
Myth #1: There’s No Thimerosal (or Mercury) in the Flu Shot Anymore.
First, I would like to direct you to two articles: Vaccine Ingredients – A Comprehensive Guide and Is There Thimerosal in the Flu Vaccine? If you click on the first link, you can scroll down to the section that explains a little more about thimerosal and mercury in vaccines. Here’s a quick summary of the articles’ findings.
According to the CDC, vaccines labeled “thimerosal-free” often have a little asterisk next to those words which lead you to something like: “This vaccine has ‘trace’ amounts of thimerosal, which the FDA says is equivalent to thimerosal-free products.” If we look closer into “thimerosal-free” vaccines, we will actually find that there is still a toxic amount of mercury contained in them.
There are two kinds of flu shots given. One contains 25 mcg of thimerosal and is often given as the “regular” flu shot to those with no special circumstances. The other kind of flu shot is labeled “thimerasol-free” (containing less than 3mcg of mercury) and is given to young children and pregnant women.
If we look at “safe” and “un-safe” levels of mercury, per the FDA, we find this:
2 ppb is the maximum amount of mercury that deems water “safe” for drinking
Anything over 200 ppb mercury is considered TOXIC [source - EPA]
After doing some math [you can check my math in the article: Vaccine Ingredients – A Comprehensive Guide], we find this:
There is 600 ppb mercury is in the “thimerosal-free” flu vaccine.
There is 50,000 ppb mercury given in the flu shot containing 25 mcg of thimerosal as a preservative.
No matter how you cut it, flu vaccines contain toxic amounts of mercury. So yes, the flu vaccines still DOES contain thimerosal. The claim that there is “no thimerasol” in the flu vaccine is a complete fallacy, which leads to the next myth.
Myth #2: Sure, the Flu Vaccine Might Contain Thimerosal, but 25mcg is a Safe Amount. Pregnant Women Can Even Eat Up to 25 mcg of Mercury Contained in Fish.
I have heard this countless times. First, I would like to point out that pregnant women do not get the flu vaccine containing thimerosal as a preservative. They receive the vaccine falsely claiming to be “thimerosal-free.” It really should be called, “thimerosal decreased, but still overly toxic.” From the above statement, we have people running around thinking it’s safe to not only eat 25 mcg of mercury, but also to inject 25 mcg of thimerosal into their body (thimerosal is 50% mercury).
There have never been any real studies done on pregnant women and the effects of eating fish-contained mercury. What information has been gathered is mainly based on trial and error. Some doctors urge their pregnant patients to completely steer clear of fish altogether because of the mercury content, while others advise pregnant women to eat “low mercury fish” once or twice a week. According to the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, eating 8-12 ounces of low mercury fish per week is safe for pregnant women. The FDA (Federal Drug Administration) and EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) say up 12 ounces per week is safe. The Mayo Clinic says to limit albacore tuna, chunk white tuna and tuna steak to 6 ounces per week. [source Mayo Clinic]
So then we have to ask: What is considered low mercury fish?
According to the FDA: shrimp, crab, salmon, pollock, catfish, cod, tuna, and, tilapia are considered low mercury fish. Tuna contains the highest amount of mercury in the low mercury fish category. [source FDA.gov]
Which leads us to: How much mercury is in fish?
Using tuna as an example, which contains the highest amount of mercury in the low mercury fish category, we find out it contains approximately 128 ppb mercury. All of the other low mercury fish are lower than that. The fish containing the highest amount of mercury, tilefish, has 1,450 ppb mercury — very understandable that pregnant women and children are urged to not eat high mercury fish. [source FDA.gov]
Now we’ll look at how many micrograms of mercury is in a serving of fish, again using tuna as an example. Three oz. of tuna is considered 1 serving, so that means a pregnant woman can safely eat 1 serving of tuna 4 times a week, according to the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. If we look at the current amount of mercury in fish (because it changes from year to year), we see that there are approximately 13.32mcg of mercury in 12 ounces of tuna, which equates to 3.33mcg per serving. The amount of mercury in tuna sits between 12-14mcg per 12 ounces every year, and has never been recorded as going over 14mcg. [source EPA]
Therefore, we can safely come to the conclusion that the FDA standard for mercury consumption in pregnant women is a maximum of 14mcg in one week, not the 25mcg that floats around on message boards. Consuming 25mcg of mercury in fish would almost double the amount the FDA considers safe for pregnant women.
I would also like to point out that *INGESTING* mercury is very different than *INJECTING* it straight into your muscle or blood stream. Ingesting small amounts of mercury is considered safe because it goes through a number of natural filtration systems in our body before it reaches the blood stream. Studies suggest that eating higher amounts of mercury (anything over 200ppb) can be toxic because a small amount of mercury is able to reach the blood stream and can cause neurological disorders, immune disorders, and other significant problems. A very in-depth study done by the University of Calgary showed that even small amounts of mercury reaching the brain cannot only halt neuron growth, but it actually causes the neuron growth to *reverse*. Neurons are integral cell bodies and nerve processes in our brains. Unlike other body cells, neurons stop reproducing shortly after birth. Because of this, some parts of the brain have more neurons at birth than later in life because neurons die and cannot be replaced. [source University of Calgary] [source]
By injecting mercury instead of ingesting it, you are essentially by-passing your inner filtration systems. All of the mercury in a vaccine enters the blood stream, which leads straight to the brain. Remember that toxic amounts of mercury is considered anything over 200ppb, and the smallest amount of mercury in a “thimerosal-free” flu vaccine is 600 ppb – the vaccine most commonly used contains 50,000 ppb. When you ingest mercury, the amount that reaches your blood stream is much less than the actual amount you consumed. When you vaccinate, the entire amount of mercury reaches your blood stream.
So here’s the point: when we combine the information from Myth #1 and Myth #2, even the FDA and EPA standards for INGESTION (over an entire week) of mercury are significantly lower than the amount in even the “thimerosal-free” vaccines – which are given all at once – and are outrageously lower than the 25mcg flu vaccine which, of course, is also given all at once.
Myth #3: Last Year I Got the Flu and I Threw Up Three Times a Day and was Constantly in the Bathroom with Diarrhea! There’s No Way I’m Skipping my Shot This Year!
Many people, after experiencing a rough weekend of throwing up and diarrhea, come back to work and say they had an awful flu. This is a common misconception. The “stomach flu” is different from “the flu” that we vaccinate for. The flu shot is ineffective against “stomach flu.”
The flu vaccine guards against “the flu.” Flu is short for Influenza. Many interchange the word “flu” to also mean “stomach flu,” which in fact is not a flu at all. Many describe having the flu as being a “cold from Hell.” Symptoms generally include fever, runny nose, head congestion, body and muscle aches, fatigue, dry cough, and sore throat. It’s definitely not fun to have and will often keep you in bed, depending on how healthy your immune system is. Influenza is caused by a virus – meaning antibiotics are not affective against killing it. With the influenza virus – as well as any other virus – you generally have to “wait it out” and let your body take care of killing the virus.
The “stomach flu” is scientifically called gastroenteritis and is caused by a virus, parasite, or bacteria. The symptoms include stomach cramps, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea and is usually caused by eating contaminated food or drinking contaminated water. Conditions such as lactose intolerance or food allergies can also cause gastroenteritis. [source Web MD]
Myth #4: If I Get a Flu Shot, I Won’t Get the Flu! (And My Body Will Be Healthier and Stronger to Boot!)
There are several different strains of influenza that cause a human to get “the flu.” There are 3 different classifications, or genuses, of Influenza: Influenza A, Influenza B, and Influenza C. Each genus has several different serotypes (or several different flus), under each classification. Influenza A has been shown to affect humans the most and has 10 known serotypes, and the CDC suspects that there are over 100 different serotypes of Influenza A. Considering that only a small percentage of people are actually tested in one year to find out what kind of flu they contracted, it is impossible to know just how many different serotypes of Influenza there are. Most people that get the flu don’t go to the doctor or hospital, and even those that are hospitalized are not commonly tested. [source Wiki]
According to the CDC:
There are several reasons why someone might get flu-like symptoms even after they have been vaccinated against the flu.
- People may be exposed to an influenza virus shortly before getting vaccinated or during the two-week period that it takes the body to gain protection after getting vaccinated. This exposure may result in a person becoming ill with flu before the vaccine begins to protect them.
- People may become ill from other (non-flu) viruses that circulate during the flu season, which can also cause flu-like symptoms (such as rhinovirus).
- A person may be exposed to an influenza virus that is not included in the seasonal flu vaccine. There are many different influenza viruses that circulate every year. The flu shot protects against the 3 viruses that research suggests will be most common. Unfortunately, some people can remain unprotected from flu despite getting the vaccine. This is more likely to occur among people that have weakened immune systems. However, even among people with weakened immune systems, the flu vaccine can still help prevent influenza complications. [source CDC.gov]
Reports of “getting the flu” after vaccination is common. Immediately following vaccination, the body’s immune system is weakened. During that time of weakened immunity, it is common for someone to more easily contract a flu virus (or any other kind of virus), even one that the vaccine prevents against considering that it takes up to 2 weeks for the body to create enough antibodies to prevent future illness from the strains contained in the vaccine.
So how many strains are contained in this year’s vaccine?
Three. H1N1, H3N2, and an Influenza B serotype called Brisbane. [source CDC.gov]
How are the strains chosen for the current year’s vaccine?
The most popular strains from the previous year become the blueprint for the current year’s vaccine. However, according to the CDC, the most popular strains of influenza change on a yearly basis. My red flag just went up! If the flu vaccine for this year is made from the previous year’s most popular strains, and they change yearly, doesn’t that mean this year’s “most popular strains” will likely be different? My internal compass says yes. Hence, the vaccine with last year’s most popular strains will be grossly ineffective this year.
“The viruses used in making seasonal flu vaccines are chosen each year based on information collected over the previous year about which influenza viruses are spreading.” [source flushotstogo.com]
One interesting fact about this year’s flu vaccine (2011-2012) is that it’s EXACTLY the same vaccine as last year’s. Nothing has been changed, yet the medical community and the government are recommending that even if you had this vaccine last year, you should still get it this year because it “wears off” in just a matter of months. HUH?! Flu vaccines are made exactly the same way as all the other vaccines we give our children: Inactivated virus, preservatives, chemicals, etc… except this is the ONLY vaccine they admit lasts for “just a couple of months.” Shouldn’t that mean that other vaccines are just as ineffective? We give those to our children and they’re supposed to last for up to 10 years after the whole series is completed. If I knew how to raise one eyebrow, I would do that now.
Myth #5: The Flu Vaccine Has Saved Countless Lives.
Influenza vaccines have been around since 1945. Just before the flu season of 2003-2004 the CDC recommended for the first time that children younger than 60 months (5 years) and older than 6 months receive an annual flu vaccination. About this time is when the fad of getting a flu vaccine became common for not only children under 5, but for everyone over 5 as well. [source CDC.gov] [source vaccineinformation.org]
The following is a list of different years and the number of flu associated deaths in children reported to the CDC:
- 1999-2000 -36 deaths [source]
- 2000-2001 -30 deaths [source] 17% decrease
- 2001-2002 – 25 deaths [source] 17% decrease
- 2002-2003 – 29 deaths [source] 16% increase (This is the last year that the flu vaccine was considered “unsafe” by the CDC for children under 5 – now let’s watch the increase of deaths after the CDC recommends all children age 6 months to 5 years be vaccinated for Influenza.)
- 2003-2004 – 153 [source] 427% increase
- 2004-2005 — 47 deaths [source] 69% decrease
- 2005-2006 – 46 deaths [source] 3% decrease
- 2006-2007 – 68 deaths [source] 48% increase
- 2007-2008 – 88 deaths [source] 29% increase
- 2008-2009 – 133 deaths [source] 51% increase
- 2009-2010 – 282 deaths [source] 112% increase
- 2010-2011 – 115 deaths [source] 59% decrease
The number of children dying from the flu has risen *drastically* since the CDC recommended children under 5 receive the flu vaccine. There has been an average of 67% increase of flu-associated death in children since the CDC recommended children under 5 receive the flu vaccine.
According to research presented at the 105th International Conference of the American Thoracic Society in San Diego, children who get the flu vaccination have a 3 times greater risk for hospitalization:
They found that children who had received the flu vaccine had three times the risk of hospitalization, as compared to children who had not received the vaccine. In asthmatic children, there was a significantly higher risk of hospitalization in subjects who received the TIV (Stands for Trivalent Influenza Vaccine – a.k.a. the flu shot), as compared to those who did not. [source Sciencedaily.com]
So in essence, parents who vaccinate their children against the flu are increasing the hospitalization risk for their child!
”The number of deaths attributed to influenza over the years is always averaged at 36,000 per year in the United States, and that number is still often used. This number, as many people found out, was completely false and misleading.
Their claim that 36,000 Americans die from the seasonal flu is classic deception & fear mongering propaganda. Most of those deaths, as you can see by the breakdown chart below, resulted from bacterial pneumonia triggered by the Flu. And the age bracket for most victims is 65 and over. But the Flu itself is relatively innocuous by comparison, and actual flu death figures are statistically minor. The who base Flu death averages not on the Influenza totals but on the combined Pneumonia & Influenza totals are overcoming a serious political challenge: convincing the public of the urgency to be vaccinated when the crisis is no longer perceived to be real. Without that advantage of fear, given all that we have learned about the lack of efficacy & dangers inherent to the shots, the entire Flu Vaccine Industry might very well collapse.

The CDC and the World Health Organization (WHO) converts numbers from the third set; based on yearly fluctuations they arrive at 36,000.” [Joel Lord in VRM: “One For All” Universal Flu Vaccine – 21st Century Genetic Roulette Part 1; Founder of the VRM]
So when you hear the number of flu related deaths per year, remember that it’s a complete estimation. The WHO and the CDC take the numbers of not only those individuals with confirmed influenza cases, but also those individuals that have not been tested to see whether or not they had influenza but died from pneumonia. They’re taking a complete guess and assuming that about half of the individuals that died from pneumonia developed pneumonia because they contracted influenza as well, which may or may not be true. You’ll also see that, despite a consecutive increase of flu vaccinations each year, the number of influenza AND pneumonia cases remain about the same.
At the end of all of this, we find that the Flu vaccine is dangerous and essentially ineffective. So that means we must be doomed to live in a never-ending cycle of possibly contracting the yearly flu?
Not so. Studies have shown that adequate amounts of Vitamin D during the flu months (when Vitamin D levels are at their lowest) can prevent people from contracting influenza up to 100% of the time!! And even if your Vitamin D levels aren’t as high as they need to be to completely prevent the flu, even higher than average levels of Vitamin D can greatly minimize the symptoms of the flu if you catch it. This is one of the only safe and natural ways to prevent the flu or lessen flu symptoms. [source Naturalnews.com][source medicalnewstoday.com] [source mercola.com] [source University of Cambridge Medical Journals]
Along with adequate amounts of Vitamin D, studies show that regular visits to a chiropractor can have significant affects on immune system health and development. The Journal of Pediatric, Maternal & Family Health issued a release on May 04, 2009 with the headline “Flue Prevention Plan Should Include Chiropractic,” urging people to include chiropractic during this most recent flu scare. In this report, it states:
People of all ages are encouraged to add chiropractic to their strategy for warding off and fighting the flu and its effects swine flu or otherwise. Spinal adjustments can have a positive effect on immune function according to a growing number of researchers who are exploring the common denominators in disease processes, and the role of the nervous, immune, and hormonal systems in development of immune related illnesses. [source]
During the Spanish Influenza outbreak in 1918 in Davenport, Iowa, 50 medical doctors cared for 4,953 cases of the Spanish flu, and 274 of their patients died. In the same city, 150 chiropractic doctors, including students and faculty of the Palmer School of Chiropractic, treated 1,635 Spanish Flu patients where only 1 patient died.
Outside Davenport, chiropractors in Iowa cared for 4,735 Spanish Flu sufferers with only six deaths – one out of 866. In Oklahoma, out of 3,490 flu patients receiving the benefits of chiropractic care, only seven people died.
National figures for the United States show that 1,142 chiropractic doctors treated a total of 46,394 flu patients during the 1918 Spanish Flu outbreak, with a mortality rate of only 54 patients – one out of every 859, or less than 0.12 percent.
In sharp contrast, the mortality rate from Spanish flu in regular US hospitals generally ranged from 30 to 40 percent. For one hospital in New York, the mortality rate was 68 percent! [source][source]

Lives ruined, “Gardasil Girls” abandoned by CDC, manufacturers & media
ST. PAUL, MN – Vaccine consumers were shortchanged yet again by media’s selective reporting of Rep. Michele Bachmann’s HPV vaccine comments from last week’s Tea Party debate. Whatever one’s opinion of Republican Presidential candidate Bachmann, the seriousness of vaccine injury was lost to many journalists’ indulgences in bias, jingoism and ignorance.
The Minneapolis Star Tribune found demagoguery irresistible, inaccurately titling its editorial “Bachmann’s foolish attack on vaccines.” The subhead, “Congresswoman’s fear-mongering put politics over health,” was unintentionally ironic, especially given the Strib’s consistent failure to investigate many readers’ vaccine injuries and legitimate product safety concerns.
In 2006 the HPV vaccine was recommended by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices. A few years later the U.S. Centers for Disease Control stated, “As of June 22, 2011… VAERS [the federal Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System] received a total of 18,727 reports of adverse events following Gardasil® vaccination.” A total of 2,799 adverse events were classified as “Serious,” including encephalopathy (brain damage). 98 deaths have been reported.
In 2009 CBS News quoted Dr. Scott Ratner, whose wife is also a physician, saying one of their daughters became severely ill after a shot of Gardasil: “My daughter went from a varsity lacrosse player at Choate to a chronically ill, steroid-dependent patient with autoimmune myofasciitis.”
Girls injured by HPV vaccines have little recourse – medical treatments are few and vaccine injury research is minimal. Teenaged victims have taken their stories to Facebook and YouTube. Websites like www.TruthAboutGardasil.org list victims’ symptoms and photos. A documentary on HPV vaccine injury, “One More Girl,” is currently being filmed by ThinkExist Productions.
Glossed over in most media is possible influence peddling by Governor Rick Perry’s former chief of staff Mike Toomey, who went to work for Merck, the manufacturer of the Gardasil HPV vaccine. The legislative group Women In Government was courted by HPV vaccine manufacturers; a subsequent 2007 Minnesota HPV vaccine bill sponsored by WIG attendees was defeated.
The Washington Post did run “Perry’s Financial Ties to Merck Run Deep” on 9/14/11, but concluded with this tepid caveat: “[S]ome experts have said they are concerned that there is insufficient evidence about how long Gardasil’s protection will last, whether serious side effects will emerge and whether a reduction in infections will necessarily translate into fewer cancers.”
Despite these unanswered questions, a bill to allow 12-year-olds to get the HPV vaccine without parents’ consent is on the desk of California Governor Jerry Brown. Yet few media outlets have reported on the myriad negative implications of this usurpation of parental health care rights.
Media’s repeated failure to investigate vaccine safety issues is perhaps best summarized this week in an insightful analysis by Alison Bass, a Brandeis and Mount Holyoke journalism professor, science writer, Pulitzer Prize nominee, and author of the book “Side Effects”:
“I wish the media would use this opportunity to explore the public health ramifications of allowing a drug manufacturer to aggressively target the wrong population for an expensive and possibly unnecessary vaccine.”
