[back] Vaccine Failures

[It is not generally know but over 50% of measles/mumps/rubella cases have been vaccinated.]

“During the California (Disneyland) measles outbreak, children under four years were counted as 'unvaccinated' even if they were being vaccinated but hadn't yet received the second MMR dose. That's why they have the range cut-off at four. It's semantic trickery.  They only count them as 'vaccinated' if they've had both doses. Since the second dose is given at 4-6 years of age, vaccinated children who are between 1 year and their fourth birthday are counted as 'unvaccinated.' ”  ~  Marcella Piper-Terry

"Take the 1991 measles epidemic. They calculated that this epidemic costs the country 8 million dollars to treat the 9,000 plus cases. I'm not sure about that figure, but the FACT that over 60% of those children were appropriately vaccinated was never taken into consideration in that calculation."--Hilary Butler

[2015 feb] Dr. Suzanne Humphries, M.D. – Vaccine Strain of Measles Virus Found in Measles Outbreaks

Dr. Michael Elice M.D. – Media Promoting Medical Harm to Our Children  The media would have us believe that this is a result of the fringe population of anti-vaxers who refuse to have their children vaccinated according the guidelines of the current vaccine schedule.  Medical reporting has brought to light the glaring ineffectiveness of the measles vaccines in fulfilling their widely claimed promise of preventing outbreaks in highly vaccine compliant populations.  In fact, measles outbreaks have occurred in populations that have been vaccinated on the average of 77%- 99%, not the so-called anti-vaxers.....Last year 1 in every 500,000 Americans came down with the measles. Nearly all recovered in a few days without serious consequences.  At the same time 1 in 68 American children were diagnosed with autism or for every case of measles there were 7000 cases of autism.  I ask myself which is the real epidemic here?....Stop hyping the safety of MMR vaccines which may actually be more dangerous than live measles and may be ineffective in preventing the illness which they are so anxious to report as a dangerous epidemic itself.   Let’s stop believing that the mainstream media is telling us the truth when all they are doing is shutting down any intelligent and open discussion about vaccine safety and how to improve it.

Journal articles of measles vaccine failure (MMR)

"Study after study has demonstrated that many women immunized against rubella as children lack evidence of immunity in blood tests given during their adolescent years. Other tests have shown a high vaccine failure rate in children given rubella, measles, and mumps shots, either separately or in combined form."---Dr Mendelsohn

Rubella Vaccination: a failure by Michael Nightingale

[2007] measles outbreak experience I also managed to find out which 2 children had caught Measles. And guess what? Yes, both children who had caught measles had been immunised with the combined MMR at 13 months. Did the health workers inform the 2 mothers who contacted me of this fact? No. But it didn't stop them using these cases to frighten the mothers into allowing their children to be immunised with the combined MMR. Utterly disgraceful. And they called themselves "professionals".
