Oct 6, 2014, Wall Street Journal: Preschools Consider Requiring Flu Shots
According to Sue Collins, co-founder of the six-year-old, several thousand-member New Jersey Coalition for Vaccination Choice (NJCVC), "we're not anti-vaccine, we just feel that vaccines should be a choice made by individuals and their families," she said. "Vaccinations like the flu shot incorporate drugs such as antibiotics and mercury-containing thimerosal, which have potential side effects and may in fact be setting us up for more weakened immune systems in the end," she said.
Among additional concerns, said Collins, are worries that flu shots might not necessarily protect against this year's strain, as the killed-virus vaccine made available in the U.S. by late summer is based on flu strains that were circulating most frequently in the Far East 6-8 months earlier. ...
In addition, while some believe that the measles vaccine and others have been linked to conditions like autism, data from many scientific studies has failed to prove this. And studies show that we may actually experience a build-up of protection against the flu by getting a flu shot every year," she said.
In the wonderful world of New Jersey, vaccines are always safe, abundant, and heavily promoted. How nice for people in NJ that "roughly 90 percent of the state's 1,900 chain, retail, supermarket-based, and independent pharmacies now offer the vaccine" and hospitals require it for employees.
Flu vaccines are for everyone in NJ.: 'As public health officials, we advise all people over six months of age to get immunized during flu season, and the sooner the better.'
Of course, to be fair and balanced, the reporter put an advocate for vaccine choice up against CDC officials, doctors, pharmacists, and members of the public who get the annual flu shot.
It should also be noted that New Jersey also boasts the highest autism rate in the U.S., one in every 45 kids, one in every 28 boys
Leading doctors have called for an end to the use of mercury in vaccines to avoid potential threat to health of children. The call has come at a time when India has agreed to ratify the Minamata Convention - the international treaty banning use of mercury - and phase out the use of the toxic element over the coming decade.
"Continuing to use this potentially toxic substance when there is little justification for it, will erode the trust of the public and endanger many public health initiatives," Jacob Puliyel and Ritika Chhawchharia of the Department of Pediatrics at St Stephens Hospital in New Delhi states. ...
Why we have to poison children in the poorest countries: COST AND CLIMATE.
This is an Indian Business Magazine. Incredibly, here's a publication critical of injecting mercury into people. Americans aren't used to that of course. Our media sources, with rare exception, are lockstep in their endorsement of vaccines, especially vaccines containing mercury, as safe. Back in 2000, pharmaceutical companies were urged to remove it from most pediatric vaccines--except the flu vaccine. Officials said it was merely a precaution--there was no real evidence of harm. Children in the poorest countries weren't so lucky. Their vaccines continue to contain mercury at levels far exceeding any safety standards.
There is no justification for exposing anyone to toxic mercury. The mercury-containing preservative thimerosal was never tested or approved by the FDA, yet it's allowed in vaccines. Children around the world continue to be exposed to a deadly neurotoxin with devastating results.
Notice what the two people at the hospital in New Delhi say about the use of mercury. In this country, the press gives us Paul Offit at CHOP saying it was a mistake to ever remove it from vaccines in the first place and that there's more exposure to mercury in a tuna sandwich--of course we all know where he's coming from.
I posted a comment.
Also true, autism prevents Alyssa from taking care of herself.
"You know, we spend out lives in the first 21 years of their lives getting our children ready to go out in the community," Barbara Burnett said. "The reality is right now is our community is not ready for children like Alyssa."
Eventually, they hope to develop a community center where adults like Alyssa can experience enriching lives. A place for them to go. A chance for life-long learning for them.
And now that place exists. The Alyssa Burnett Adult Life Center in Bothell.
Program manager Tammy Mitchel says the approach is loosely based on the parks and recreation's model. Goals are modest but also monumental....
Word has gotten out. Children's has received calls from Alaska, Colorado, California, Idaho and Montana asking about these services. That's how great the need is.
I can't post a comment here. It's too bizarre.
As a country, over the last 25 years, we've adjusted to...
...a once rare disorder becoming so common that everyone knows someone with a child with autism,
...kids who were born healthy and who inexplicably got sick, lost learned skills and regressed into autism,
...schools filled with special needs kids--ones who can't speak, can't learn or can't behave,
...an ever-increasing autism rate with no rational explanation,
...one bizarre theory after another, including bad genes, as the possible cause of an epidemic,
...no U.S. health official EVER calling autism a CRISIS,
AND NOW, PREPARE FOR STAGE TWO OF THE NIGHTMARE...
...more and more children with autism aging out of school with nowhere to go,
...parents having to come up with adult living conditions for their children,
...no one in the media asking why these 20 year olds with autism can't go where autistic adults have always gone,
...CDC officials taking no notice and continuing to pretend that it's always been like this,
...autistic young adults being in dire circumstances when sick and elderly parents just can't manage them anymore,
...AND FINALLY, AUTISM BANKRUPTING STATE BUDGETS, BECAUSE THEY'LL BE THE FOLKS LEFT TO PROVIDE FOR A HEALTH CARE DISASTER THAT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT HAS
DILIGENTLY WORKED TO COVER UP FOR TWENTY YEARS.
A new report says Michigan lacks enough autism specialists to handle the number of children being diagnosed and treated with the disorder.
The Center for Healthcare Research and Transformation (CHRT) says that means long wait times before many children and their families can get help.
"We actually talked to all of the treatment programs to get a sense of the average waiting time for appointments, and it was anywhere from a month to, in some cases, two years, depending on the particular program," said CHRT Director Marianne Udow-Phillips.
So, the message here is that autism is only a problem because they don't have enough specialists. Notice the rate isn't mentioned.
Seriously, the press is clueless about what's happening. "Blissfully Unaware" is what I like to call them. Kids can wait for years for appointments--still nothing is really wrong. We just need more specialists.
New York City joins New Jersey and Connecticut in mandating that children get vaccinated...
Side effects from a flu shot are mild and short-lasting, the CDC says. These can include soreness or swelling where the shot was given, a low-grade fever and aches. Experts say severe side effects are very rare. ...
The New York City measure, which applies to children from 6 months to nearly 5 years old, requires all children in city-licensed facilities to get vaccinated by the end of the calendar year
Wall Street Journal says it's safe to inject mercury into babies and toddlers--I have to say that the WSJ thinks it's all right too expose children to MERCURY--the deadliest non--radioactive element on Earth. WHY? ...because there's no mention of it in this story where they promote flu vaccines for kids 6 months to 5 years of age in NYC daycare.
Reporter Sumathi Reddy may not even know about the presence of toxic mercury in the majority of the shots available. She, like most reporters, can be confident that if they go to the website of the CDC, they'll have to look no further. Parents can relax. The only things that can happen "are mild and short-lasting."
So if your child is vaccinated with 25 mcg of mercury and suddenly loses learned skills, develops seizures and bowel problems, it's just a sad coincidence.
Of course Reddy doesn't mention that NO ONE HAS ANY LIABILITY FOR VACCINE INJURIES. Parents have to learn that fact for themselves.
