These 1959 Reports Show Measles Was Considered a 'Mild Infection' Today when we talk of measles, we talk of a killer disease that could potentially wipe out mankind. Those who choose not to get the MMR vaccine are, in essence, putting the world’s survival at risk. In February of 2015, the CDC classified 125 measles cases at Orange County, California’s Disney Theme Park as an “outbreak.”

But what was the actual end result of the “outbreak?” The CDC connected 125 total measles cases from Disney Theme Park, 100 of them were considered “patients.” But these “patients,” all survived. But what if we started vaccinating for colds? When we think of the measles today, we think of a killer disease. Measles epidemic [page 354]Br Med J 1959;1:351.2 (Published 07 February 1959)In the first three weeks of this year about 41,000 cases of measles were recorded in England and Wales.

Chickenpox, shingles vaccine may cause corneal inflammation in some patients. In use for more than 20 years, the varicella zoster virus vaccine for chickenpox and shingles is considered an essential medicine by the World Health Organization (WHO).

However, researchers from the University of Missouri School of Medicine have found, in rare instances, a link between the vaccine and corneal inflammation. It is a finding the researchers say should be discussed by primary care physicians and patients with a history of eye inflammation before getting vaccinated. "Keratitis, or inflammation of the clear layer on the front of the eye, is a vision issue that can cause serious complications or even permanent damage to your vision if left untreated," said Frederick W. Fraunfelder, M.D., chair of the Department of Ophthalmology at the MU School of Medicine and director of MU Health Care's Mason Eye Institute.

A review of the database and previously published reports found 20 cases of keratitis with a close relationship to administration of the vaccine. Merck Has Some Explaining To Do Over Its MMR Vaccine Claims. Merck, the pharmaceutical giant, is facing a slew of controversies over its Measles-Mumps-Rubella (MMR) vaccine following numerous allegations of wrongdoing from different parties in the medical field, including two former Merck scientists-turned-whistleblowers.

A third whistleblower, this one a scientist at the Centers for Disease Control, also promises to bring Merck grief following his confession of misconduct involving the same MMR vaccine. The controversies will find Merck defending itself and its vaccine in at least two federal court cases after a U.S. District judge earlier this month threw out Merck's attempts at dismissal. Merck now faces federal charges of fraud from the whistleblowers, a vaccine competitor and doctors in New Jersey and New York. The first court case, United States v. These fraudulent activities, say the whistleblowers, were designed to produce test results that would meet the FDA's requirement that the mumps vaccine was 95 per cent effective. Close. Difficulties in eliminating measles and controlling rubella and mumps: a cross-sectional study of a first measles and rubella vaccination and a secon... Scientists Prove Those Vaccinated for Shingles Can Infect Others with Chicken Pox. By Christina England For many years, the US government and mainstream media have continued to blame the unvaccinated community for the spread of infectious disease.

We are constantly being bombarded with statements like the one written by Philip Ross and published in the International Business Times, which stated: “The American classroom has become a battleground for parents who are threatened by the growing number of children not vaccinated against measles, one of the most highly contagious viruses in the world. The ongoing measles outbreak in the U.S. that started at Disneyland and has spread to 14 states has raised concerns over the country’s rising anti-vaccination movement, including whether the decision to vaccinate against such a dangerous disease should be left to parents, and what constitutes responsible childrearing.

Should a child whose parents chose not to vaccinate be allowed to share the same pencils and playground as children whose parents did?” Duane Pierson stated that: Dozens of children feared dead after being injected with 'tainted’ measles vaccine in Syria. “It’s very bad. The figures of dead we are getting go into the 30s. Children are dying very quickly,” said Daher Zidan, the coordinator of the medical charity, Uossm. “We think it will get worse.” The Syrian opposition coalition, which controls the area of Idlib province and had been administering the programme, said it had halted the immunisation project forthwith.

“The Syrian interim government’s health ministry has instructed a halt to the second round of the measles vaccination campaign, which began Monday ... following several fatalities and injuries among children in vaccination centres in the Idlib countryside,” a statement said. Medical experts said a contaminated batch of the vaccine was the most likely explanation for the incident. In what had been a rare hopeful breakthrough, the World Health Organisation (WHO) launched the vaccination drive to ensure 1.6 million children were granted protection from measles this summer. "The local authorities have launched an investigation. These 1959 Reports Show Measles Was Considered a 'Mild Infection' Data Reveals Measles Outbreaks Have Nothing to Do With Non-Vaccination Trends.

Whatever we might each think about the decision to not vaccinate ourselves or our children, one thing is clear: vaccination is a heated topic and debates about it often result in polarization. Maybe another thing is clear too: most opinions about vaccination (for or against) are influenced more by editorials on the subject, than by data itself. Thus, here is one more editorial on the subject, albeit one that does not pass judgment on vaccinations, for or against. It is, instead, intended as a call to research, and a reminder of the scientific maxim: correlation is not causation. That goes for both sides of this debate. On the anti-vaccination side, there are many claims made that are often based on things that the data might imply, but is far from proving.

This results in many ideas that are later discredited being circulated as fact. Non-vaccinators in NY are .1-1% of the population. What does the data show on measles in the states where opting out of vaccination trends the highest? Fully Vaccinated Child Gets Measles. A Fairfax County child has a confirmed case of measles. The child is reportedly fully vaccinated. The child is being treated at Fairfax Medical Campus in Falls Church, VA. The child was not old enough for the second MMR dose, which is likely to be the point of contention by the CDC as a way of creating an excuse for the child contracting the illness.

This, according to the Washington Post. According to the CDC National Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), children should receive two doses of the vaccine because about 2%-5% of people do not develop immunity after the first dose of vaccine. The CDC does not take lightly any marks against vaccines. You can expect the company line to remain unchanged as people begin looking for answers as to why a fully vaccinated child would still contract the illness. The child has been released from the hospital and is no longer considered contagious. Comments comments.

Association of measles and mumps with cardiovascular disease: The Japan Collaborative Cohort (JACC) study. A Measles Death, Vaccines, and the Media’s Failure to Inform. Last week, it was widely reported in the mainstream media that the autopsy of a woman who died of pneumonia earlier this year in the state of Washington found that she had been infected with measles, making this the first confirmed case of measles-related death in the US since 2003. Playing its usual role, the mainstream media is up in arms, blaming the death on parents who choose not to vaccinate their children and telling parents that to not vaccinate is irresponsible.

Rather than journalists doing their job by asking hard questions about public policy and seeking out the answers, they choose to act as nothing more than a mouthpiece for government health departments and dutifully tow the official line on vaccine policy. The woman who died was not among the unvaccinated. On the contrary, she not only had been vaccinated, but reportedly was tested and found to have a protective antibody titer. She nevertheless became infected with measles while seeking medical attention in a clinic. Measles Outbreak among Vaccinated High School Students -- Illinois. From December 9, 1983, to January 13, 1984, 21 cases of measles occurred in Sangamon County, Illinois.* Nine of the cases were confirmed serologically. The outbreak involved 16 high school students, all of whom had histories of measles vaccination after 15 months of age documented in their school health records. Of the five remaining cases, four occurred in unvaccinated preschool children, two of whom were under 15 months of age, and one case occurred in a previously vaccinated college student (Figure 5).

The affected high school had 276 students and was in the same building as a junior high school with 135 students. A review of health records in the high school showed that all 411 students had documentation of measles vaccination on or after the first birthday, in accordance with Illinois law. Measles vaccination histories were obtained from the school health records of all 276 senior high school students. No vaccinations were given as part of the outbreak control program. References. Media Misrepresenting the Facts in the First “Measles Death” Since 2003. As far as we can tell, there was no “death from measles,” just a seemingly desperate attempt to twist the facts to support a pro-measles vaccine narrative. Last week, news reports started discussing the death of a woman in Washington. For the first time since 2003, the stories went, someone in the United States had died of measles. The woman was probably exposed to measles at a medical facility during an outbreak this spring. Many of the articles used this tragic incident to bemoan the falling vaccination rates and shame those who choose not to vaccinate.

Because of her immune suppression, once the disease developed, she did not experience the characteristic measles rash. Perhaps they should consider developing a vaccine that will supposedly prevent the 128,000 deaths (or the 1.9 million hospitalizations) each year from FDA-approved drugs! Jnl Inf Dis. Correspondence: Jennifer S. Rota, MPH, Div of Viral Diseases, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 1600 Clifton Rd, NE, MS-C-22, Atlanta, GA 30333, USA ( Abstract In 2009, measles outbreaks in Pennsylvania and Virginia resulted in the exposure and apparent infection of 2 physicians, both of whom had a documented history of vaccination with >2 doses of measles-mumps-rubella vaccine.

These physicians were suspected of having been infected with measles after treating patients who subsequently received a diagnosis of measles. The clinical presentation was nonclassical in regard to progression, duration, and severity. It is hypothesized that the 2 physicians mounted vigorous secondary immune responses typified by high avidity measles immunoglobulin G antibody and remarkably high neutralizing titers in response to intense and prolonged exposure to a primary measles case patient.

There are nine confirmed cases of measles among people who visited Disneyland during the week before Christmas, according to this report from KTTV in Los Angeles.

Let the hysteria begin! Or not. Before everyone starts panicking and racing out to get vaccinated. Please take some time to learn the truth about measles, and about the MMR vaccine. Nearly three years ago there was another “big scare” when two cases of measles were tied to people who visited the Super Bowl Village in Indianapolis. I wrote about it at the time, and since I collected a lot of information then, I’m not going to reinvent the wheel for this “outbreak.” Here is the article from USA Today, which was written about the Indiana outbreak. Dr. Dr. “Measles can be a fatal disease.” The CDC has this to say about the severe complications from measles: Some people may suffer from severe complications, such as pneumonia (infection of the lungs) and encephalitis (swelling of the brain).

Merck Mumps Vaccines Are a Total Fraud: Company Can Only Provide the Courts with Efficacy Data from 50 Years Ago | Global Research - Centre for Research on Globalization. A pair of former Big Pharma scientists have accused their former employer, Merck & Co., of falsifying tests of an exclusive mumps vaccine in recently filed court papers, charges they say the pharmaceutical giant has yet to answer. Lawyers at Constantine Cannon, the firm representing the scientists, have asked U.S. Magistrate Judge Lynne Sitarski of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania to force the company to respond to their request for discovery, which seeks to compel the company to provide efficacy data regarding the vaccine in the form of a percentage.

But, as Reuters reports, rather than answer the question, the letter said, Merck has instead been evasive, using “cut-and-paste” stock answers and claiming that the company cannot run new clinical trials to determine current efficacy. Rather, Merck has only provided data that is five decades old. A representative of Merck could not immediately be reached for comment, Reuters noted in its June 4 report.

Posted by Bob Nellis (@bobnellis) · Feb 26, 2014 Mayo Clinic Discovers African-Americans Respond Better to Rubella Vaccine Findings May Help Make Immunizations More Effective ROCHESTER, Minn. — Feb. 27, 2014 — Somali Americans develop twice the antibody response to rubella from the current vaccine compared to Caucasians in a new Mayo Clinic study on individualized aspects of immune response.

A non-Somali, African-American cohort ranked next in immune response, still significantly higher than Caucasians, and Hispanic Americans in the study were least responsive to the vaccine. The findings appear in the journal Vaccine. “This is fascinating,” says Gregory Poland, M.D., Mayo Clinic vaccinologist and senior author of the study. The researchers studied a sample of 1,100 healthy children and young adults in Rochester, as well as over 1,000 participants from the U.S. The researchers hypothesized that race, sex or ethnicity might contribute to differences in immune response.

JAMA Study Implicates Early MMR Vaccine in Causing Autism, Author’s Note: The hyperlink to the study goes to an archived webpage because the full text version is no longer available on the JAMA website. A recent study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) that is widely touted to argue against the measles, mumps, rubella (MMR) vaccine’s association with autism actually provides evidence for a connection.

Based on computation from the study results for participants with non-autism spectrum disorder-diagnosed (non-ASD) older siblings, children who received a dose of the MMR vaccine before age five had a risk for ASD diagnosis by age five that was 48% higher than in children who did not in analyses that corrected for certain potential biases. Yet the crude findings are similar to results from a study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that was published in the medical journal Pediatrics in 2004 and has also been cited to deny autism’s association with MMR.
