While the media is focused on threats and "stalking" from pro-exemption parents, in this Jan 29 video, Barbara Loe Fisher points out what the mainstream media hasn't reported about the measles outbreak and vaccine immunity.
Measles in Disneyland: Third MMR Shot & Vaccine Exemption Ban
On this video, Barbara Loe Fisher head of the National Vaccine Information Center discussed the measles outbreak that has been linked to exposure at Disneyland and the move to end vaccine exemptions.
Barbara pointed out that "there was and still is limited information about the 51 lab confirmed cases of measles public health officials say are linked to the happiest place on Earth."
She added that according to a press release on Jan 23, 2015, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention 'no source case for the outbreak has been identified.'
Barbara questioned why, as soon as the outbreak was announced, the press linked it to parents not vaccinating. Hate speech directed at parents immediately ensued.
She gave us eye-opening facts about measles, which she described as "inconvenient truths about vaccine failures and the dissolving myths about acquired herd immunity."
"There were 644 cases of measles in 2014, even though 95 percent of children entering kindergarten have gotten 2 doses of MMR vaccine, which is also true for 92 percent of schoolchildren ages 13 to 17 years.
"Plus, less than one percent of children under age three are completely unvaccinated. And 92 percent of them have gotten one or more MMR shots. In some states, the MMR vaccination rate is approaching 100 percent."
Barbara pointed out that herd immunity requires that 90 percent of children are vaccinated. "That's been true in America since 1981 with one dose of MMR vaccine and since 1000 for two doses of MMR vaccine."
For this reason the CDC declared measles eradicated in 2000, yet according to Barbara, no one has been able to successfully eradicate measles anywhere. Barbara added, "And emerging scientific evidence suggests it never will be, no matter how many doses of MMR vaccine are mandated for every man, woman and child in the world."
The elephant in the room is the question Barbara asked next, "Why is a big deal being made about 51 cases of measles reported in the U.S.?
Maybe, it's a diversion. Maybe health officials are hyping the measles cases in order to, as Barbara said, "not focus on the fact that millions of Americans have gotten flu shots that don't work. And health care workers are being fired if they don't get flu shots that don't work."
She continued, "Scientists have confirmed that the more often you get an annual flu shot, the less effective it is." She asked about the danger of exposure from children who received a live virus flu vaccine.
Next Barbara talked about the failure rate of the whooping cough vaccine. The science is now being recognized, that shows "you can be fully vaccinated for pertussis, and show atypical, or no symptoms, and spread whooping cough to vaccinated and unvaccinated persons." In fact, according to experts, there are millions of cases undiagnosed whooping cough each year in the U.S. (This despite having 95 percent of kids vaccinated against the disease.)
Barbara said that there is no science that shows outbreaks of flu, whooping cough or measles is because unvaccinated people are spreading the diseases.
Furthermore,"[Public health doctors] just discovered that one measles vaccinated adult in 10 is now susceptible to measles because vaccine immunity wears off. They call it, waning immunity."
And incredibly, experts prescribe additional measles vaccines for adults as the solution to waning immunity.
"That's right. Let's just mandate more MMR shots for millions of Americans and make Merck's stockholders really happy."
"Public health doctors do not know how many vaccinated people can be infected with measles, show few or no symptoms, and transmit measles to other people. Government health officials do not conduct routine active surveillance of vaccinated people to find out find out if they're experiencing asymptomatic or atypical measles and transmitting it to others."
Also, the live virus vaccine may cause people who receive it to shed the virus. Again, there is no surveillance of people who receive this vaccine.
Barbara summed up: "The hype about 51 cases of measles reportedly linked to Disneyland has more to do with covering up vaccine failures and propping up the dissolving myth of vaccine acquired herd immunity than it does about protecting the public health."
