Nov 25, 2015, San Diego Union Tribune: Doctors divided on merits, risks of meningitis B vaccine

With meningitis outbreaks at several universities that have proved deadly in recent years, including the 2014 death of a San Diego State University student, the answer might seem clear.

But experts said the decision-making is complicated because a child’s chance of suffering this bacterial infection is infinitesimal while the efficacy and safety track record for both approved versions of the vaccine is limited.

A bulletin from the agency said recently approved meningitis B vaccines “may be administered” to young adults ages 16 to 18. But the vaccine has not been added to the nation’s routine vaccination schedule, and parents are urged to consult their physicians when trying to determine whether to inoculate their children for meningitis.

The discussions are taking place following highly publicized meningitis outbreaks that have put parents on edge.

. . . Meanwhile, Sawyer said newer vaccines on the market lack comprehensive evidence on safety and effectiveness, compared with vaccines that have been administered to tens of millions of people over decades.

Some patients, especially those with a family history of immune-system diseases, can be at higher risk of suffering serious side effects that come with all vaccines — including seizures, life-threatening allergic reactions and paralysis.

There was an incredible statement here.  People with "immune-system disease can be at higher risk of suffering serious side effects that come with all vaccines..." 

When is anyone checked out for immune-system disease before being vaccinated?  When are these side effects ever talked about?  Instead, the usual spin from the media is that vaccines are harmless and everyone should be vaccinated.

I had occasion to look up the word "aphasia" today. A sad occasion. I ran into an acquaintance in a crowd whom I see now and again out and about in our day to day parenting worlds. I was trying not to to listen in on his conversation, which I didn't really understand anyway. When the conversation moved to me, I tried to apologize for being slow responding to a linked in request I'd gotten from him, but he told me he had retired. What, huh? But he's only my age, a decade or 2 away from that point in time I would have thought. Kids younger than my own. My look of confusion and disbelief, well, I was completely baffled, and in the split second that I tried to wrap my head around the comment and discern if he was kidding or what, he shoved his arm toward me and almost shouted "aphasia" and it was there: APHASIA, printed on a band around his wrist, like an epilepsy or anaphylactic or diabetes medical warning tag. He pointed to the top of the front of his head and said, "Concussion." Suddenly it dawned on my that I had misunderstood his conversation with the other person because it made no sense to me, not because the crowd was so loud. His speech was clearly different, skewed or thick somehow. His was a golfing world so I joked in a way that you joke when you are struck by the shock of a tragedy and are trying to avoid the final blow, I asked him what had happened, had he been hit by a golf ball? He said he had been hit on the head from a falling coat rack when he was three.

So instead of reading a book to pass some time, I looked up aphasia. per wiki: Aphasia is most often caused by stroke, but any disease or damage to the parts of the brain that control language can cause aphasia. Some of these can include brain tumors, traumatic brain injury, and progressive neurological disorders.[10] In rare cases, aphasia may also result from herpesviral encephalitis.[11] The herpes simplex virus affects the frontal and temporal lobes, subcortical structures, and the hippocampal tissue, which can trigger aphasia.[12] In acute disorders, such as head injury or stroke, aphasia usually develops quickly. When caused by brain tumor, infection, or dementia, it develops more slowly.[1][13][14]

The more detail specifics on the wiki page that I didn't list sound an awful lot like the apraxia or dyspraxia I hear about within autism diagnosis. So of course I had to start wondering, is anyone tracking the rate of aphasia diagnosis year by year? If aphasia sounds a lot like a vaccine injury, is brain injury from vaccines in older kids and adults who also happen to play sports possibly being misdiagnosed as aphasia? I mean, if someone who gets a vaccine and then starts suffering memory or language problems goes to a doctor or neurologist, if the neurologist notes that there have been no recent contact injuries or apparent illnesses, their second question might not be "have you had a vaccine recently" but rather, can you recall any incidents from your childhood when you were hit on the head? Or just because you play sports, the doctor assumes it must be a concussion without looking further into it.


It is my understanding that the new meningitis mandate in New York State for 7th and 12th graders includes the meningitis b vaccine.

When will mainstream medicine begin to think that you dont always have to blame the poor little microorganism and hustle to make a new vaccine. You ask people to take some responsibility for keeping their immune system in good order. Would it be SO DIFFICULT to teach people to keep their vitamin D level up, eat fruits with vitamin C and avoid vaccines with mercury , which knock out a person's immune system for months . Oh, yes, and avoid the fish and dental amalgams as mercury sources too? I hesitate to post this comment. I know this is just too difficult for modern medicine, at this point in history . So much harder than pressing a button on that sophisticated MRI machine.I must have been dreaming when I imagined that they were capable of such complex thought. But for the few who can conceive of this concept:

Think not what the vaccine will do for you ! Think what you can do for the immune system !


Kids are groomed from an early age to play sports for the entertainment of society - sports that are known to cause concussions and brain damage. But the concussions are accepted. The Sports Concussion Institute states: "Concussions are a Fact of Life in Today's Sports World".

These could easily be prevented if our country would stop having kids ram their heads together for the enjoyment and financial gain of sadistic adults. But no one stops these brain injuries. Not the CDC or the AAP or state child protection agencies and certainly not the benefiting Sports Concussion Institute. It's not that meningitis isn't worth attention. But how hypocritical to make so much out of a rare illness when it is COMMON for kids to get their heads bashed in - at the direction of adults who are supposed to be guiding and taking care of them. Gambling is illegal. Prostitution is illegal. But you can legally buy a ticket to watch boys try to kill each other Roman arena style while school authorities, parents, cheerleaders, newscasters, cable networks and a screaming crowd egg them on. That's morally fine.

From The Sports Concussion Institute:

5-10% of athletes will experience a concussion in any given sport season...
Football is the most common sport with concussion risk for males (75% chance for concussion)
Soccer is the most common sport with concussion risk for females (50% chance for concussion)...
A professional football player will receive an estimated 900 to 1500 blows to the head during a season
Impact speed of a professional boxers punch: 20mph
Impact speed of a football player tackling a stationary player: 25mph
Impact speed of a soccer ball being headed by a player: 70mph...

Recent research demonstrates that high school athletes not only take longer to recover after a concussion when compared to collegiate or professional athletes, but they also may experience greater severity of symptoms and more neurological disturbances as measured by neuropsychological and postural stability tests. It is also estimated that 53% of high school athletes have sustained a concussion before participation in high school sports, and 36% of collegiate athletes have a history of multiple concussions. Because the frontal lobes of the human brain continue to develop until age 25, it is vital to manage youth concussions very conservatively to ensure optimal neurological development and outcomes....

Not only can multiple traumatic incidents contribute to the development of mild cognitive impairments (MCI's), chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), and other adverse outcomes, but a storied concussion history can also cause post-concussion syndrome (PCS). While we are still elucidating the causes of these long term effects, it is imperative that a person fully recover from one concussion before risking a subsequent one. Failing to do so adequately can lead to additional neurologic damage. Given this new understanding, managing concussions requires specialized, comprehensive and state-of-the-art approaches."

How about just preventing concussions to begin with? Like they force vaccination on children to prevent illness. How about protecting their brains from physical trauma?


More perspective:

"In April, the NFL and thousands of former players settled a lawsuit that provides up to $5 million per retired player for serious medical conditions associated with repeated head trauma."

Note even though the NFL has paid out millions in damages to thousands of former players, and while the article states that rule changes have been made (changes that are not guaranteed to solve the problem), the article says NOTHING about middle and high school and college football. These kids' brains are put at serious risk every time they step out on the field and no one suggests stopping the games. It's a "fact of life". We have to sacrifice the children, because we have to have football (and soccer and boxing) - AND VACCINES.


There is no public health crisis. US population of 308 million, there are between 1400 and 3000 cases every year that fluctuate with a natural cycle. Between 10 and 15% of the cases are fatal with another 10 to 20% ending with brain damage or loss of limbs. as of 2011. There has been no increase in cases so there is no public health crisis. If you pay attention to the articles posted on the behalf of the pharmaceutical companies and the CDC you will see there are no stats stating there is a crisis. The cases of the meningitis has decreased more than 60 percent between 1998 and 2007 to less than 1 case in 100,000 people, which is an historic low in the U.S. To put this death rate into context, there are three times as many Americans, who die from heat stroke or drown in boating accidents12 every year than die from invasive meningococcal disease.

Go over to: ClinicalTrials.gov-https://clinicaltrials(dot)gov/ct2/results?term=Bexsero&Search=Search
There are only 7 studies on Bexsero and Trumenba.
Guess who the study group is going to be. The high school and college kids. Not only doesn’t big pharma have to pay for volunteers, they make money on top of it.

Bexsero was just approved in January after the ———-Disney False Flag hoax which terrorized the uninformed so this was going to be a shoe in. There are 7 studies-3 completed. One study was complete in 2007 which means it was on the back burner waiting for an opportunity and the other two were completed, 1- in March and the other in April of this year. Surprise!!!!
For those who aren’t following:
Bexsero was approved for distribution in JANUARY 2015
The study on Bexsero was completed, 1 in MARCH 2015 and the other in APRIL 2015.

Something is clearly wrong with this.

Bexsero Meningococcal Group B
Recombinant Neisseria meningitidis group B NHBA/NadA/fHbp proteins
Outer membrane vesicles (OMV) from Neisseria meningitidis group B strain NZ98/254
Aluminium hydroxide

Trumenba has not been approved. Experimental Vaccines has some good information on meningitis vaccines: http://experimentalvaccines (dot) org/2013/12/19/princeton-university-experiments-on-5000-students/


There's good reason for concern regarding a MenB vaccine as Men B is unique among Meningitis bacteria. MenB contains polysialic acid identical to that found found in the neural cells of infants in particular, older people to a much less extent. The idea of inducing antibodies to MenB has historically been viewed as potentially dangerous, but it seems like we are throwing caution to the wind these days.

I wrote a long article on this a few years back, I've excerpted it below.

MenB Capsules, Polysialic Acid, and Autoimmunity

In 1983, Finne, Leinonen, and Makela published an important paper regarding MenB capsular polysaccharides notable for both its findings and conclusions. They determined that MenB IgM antibodies were cross-reactive with polysialic acid (PSA) glycoproteins isolated from both human and rat brains [1]. Prior research had determined that MenB capsules were poorly immunogenic in humans. Finne et al 1983 provided an explanation for the MenB capsule’s poor immunogicity - self tolerance. In strong terms rare for journal vaccine discussions, they urged caution in the development of MenB capsular vaccines for neonates. Their findings were widely disseminated with the paper being cited over 400 times.

The same year, Finne et al discovered that long chain PSA was present on the embryonic form of neural cell adhesion molecule (NCAM) [2]. NCAM is a glycoprotein expressed primarily on the surface of neurons; it plays a role in cell–cell adhesion, neuron axon outgrowth, synaptic plasticity, learning, and memory [18]. Embryonic NCAM contains long chains of sialic acid up to 55 residues long, linked with alpha(2,8) glycosidic bonds. Though shorter in length, these polysialic acid chains are identical in structure to those found within MenB capsules (Figure 1) [19]. Other researchers including Rougon et al 1986 and Nedelec et al 1990 also found that antibodies to MenB capsules were cross-reactive with PSA-rich neonatal brain tissue [3][20]. Interestingly, the same antibodies were not cross-reactive with adult brain tissue. Investigation of this phenomena revealed that NCAM transitions from a heavily polysialyted neonatal form to the nearly PSA-free adult form early in childhood. Based on their findings, Nedelec et al 1990 warned “development of a vaccine against group B meningitidis should be considered with caution” [20].

Vaccine researchers have long known that protein conjugation is an effective method of breaking immunogenic tolerance toward polysaccharide antigens. Protein conjugation forms the basis of the pediatric Haemophilus Influenza B and Pneumococcal conjugate vaccines, converting non-immumogenic polysaccharides into potent antigens. Most isolated bacterial capsules are poorly immunogenic in infants, but do provoke an immune response later in childhood [21]. Protein conjugation provides a method to “jump start” this immune response, conferring disease protection at a much earlier age than a child could produce through natural exposure to the pathogen. This is achieved via a polysaccharide-protein T-cell dependent immune response in the infant rather than the natural polysaccharide T-cell independent response seen in more mature children [21].

MenB capsules however, are different from other bacterial capsules as they do not induce an immune response even in mature children or adults [1]. It is tempting to consider this an evolutionary adaptation; the risk from anti-PSA antibodies exceeds the benefits these antibodies might provide in combating MenB. Following this same line of thinking, many have urged caution regarding MenB capsule conjugate vaccines as breaking immunological tolerance via protein conjugation or other techniques could entail significant risks. These warning have been heeded; all of the modern Neisseria meningitidis polysaccharide conjugate vaccines exclude MenB, thus being limited to the A, C, W-135, and Y meningococcal strains.


Wow! So many kids with seizures now and here they admit this is a possibility with vaccination! I think doctors are more than realizing that our children cannot handle one more vaccine. Parents can't either!
