(June 22, 2018) Law firms representing people who have filed shingles vaccine cases have requested they be consolidated in New Jersey. Law360 reported last month that the firms represent hundreds of people who allegedly suffered serious injuries after using Merck & Co. Inc.’s shingles vaccine. A bar notice said the attorneys have asked the New Jersey Supreme Court to give the Zostovax cases a multicounty litigation designation (MLC).
Plaintiffs in some 37 filed cases filed in one petition hail from all across the country. Their lawsuits all claim Merck failed to warn them that its shingles vaccine could cause maladies such as brain swelling, eye injuries, and other physical disorders.
One attorney representing 285 plaintiffs said that the people filing complaints claim similar injuries, so coordinating discovery for the suits “would be advantageous (and) promote convenience and fairness to all parties to these cases.”
Middlesex County is the best place for the cases, said the plaintiffs’ firms. According to Bern & Partners, Bergen and Atlantic counties are already handling 13 other mass torts between them, and two out of the seven mass torts now running in Middlesex are nearly finished; so Middlesex would be a good destination for the shingles lawsuit cases.
Bern & Partners argued that despite nearly identical issues of fact and law presented to the various judges now assigned to the cases, the rulings have not all been consistent. The Bern firm wants the Zostovax cases to go before Superior Court Judge James Hyland, who is overseeing mass torts for Middlesex County.
Bern & Partners attorney Thomas Joyce, who represents 569 plaintiffs, said, “We anticipate and presume that inconsistent rulings on substantively identical issues of law and/or fact will continue to occur. (Thus), MCL designation will be beneficial to preserve consistency throughout these similar cases, and will be fair and convenient for all parties and the court.”
The judiciary welcomed comments and objections to the applications through June 8, 2018.
Shingles Vaccine Lawsuits Shingles vaccine lawsuits have been filed over Merck’s Zostavax vaccine. Zostavax causes problems, according to plaintiffs, because it contains a live virus that can cause nerve-damaging inflammation throughout the body. Plaintiffs represented by Sadaka Associates claim that inflammation caused by Zostavax can lead to facial paralysis, encephalitis, meningitis and loss of dexterity.
Bern & Partners allege additional Zostavax shingles-related injuries that include post-herpetic neuralgia, retinol necrosis, keratitis (eye/vision injury) and acute myelitis. Bern & Partners’ plaintiffs allege that the makers, marketers, distributors and sellers of Zostavax knew or should have known about its “dangerous propensity,” yet concealed the information to boost Merck’s shingles vaccine sales.
Judge Hyland Chosen
Merck also wants the cases to be heard by Judge Hyland, whom Merck recognizes as familiar with the company, according to a September 2017 letter from the drug and vaccine giant’s legal counsel, Fox Rothschild LLP. That letter was included in the bar notice.
Plaintiffs’ lawyer Mark Sadaka told Law360 that he was hopeful the New Jersey consolidation would work hand-in-hand with the federal MDL.
The Zostavax shingles vaccine cases are in the Superior Court of New Jersey.
(April 9, 2018) A California senator who led the charge to kill informed consent for vaccinations in California just introduced a bill to stifle free speech in the state.
Jon Rappoport, in his ‘No More Fake News’ web site, reported the story, which is flying under the radar, by design, of course. California Senator Richard Pan, the Merck Pharmaceuticals beneficiary behind the infamous 2015 law mandating vaccinations (which Merck makes with fraudulent data) for schoolchildren (the infamous SB277), now seeks to end free speech in California. Mr. Pan’s draconian bill has dangerously far-reaching implications (if you believe in the 1st amendment); for it threatens to reach far beyond the state’s poorly secured borders.
The California senator’s new bill would clamp down on criticism of any Official Story. If it passes, when a government agency – such as the hopelessly corrupt CDC, drug-industry compromised FDA,politically-compromised FBI, or honesty-challenged CIA – puts out an “official story,” any blog or comment which veers from that script will be subject to censorship, or “warnings.” The end point for Mr. Pan and his corporate sponsors is to make readers swallow any official story without questioning its methods, motives, or dirty money trail. Mr. Pan’s slippery financial ties to drug companies like Merck make it in his best interests to stifle the truth.
The bill to censor the free flow of information is titled “SB1424 Internet: social media: false information: strategic plan.” SB1424 ostensibly targets social media based in California, but, as Mr. Rappoport writes, “as you read the bill, you see it appears to define social media as any Internet blog, website, or communication.”
Mr. Rappoport has recorded the whole brief bill for us. Here it is:
SB1424 This bill would require any person who operates a social media, as defined, Internet Web site with a physical presence in California to develop a strategic plan to verify news stories shared on its Web site. The bill would require the plan to include, among other things, a plan to mitigate the spread of false information through news stories, the utilization of fact-checkers to verify news stories, providing outreach to social media users, and placing a warning on a news story containing false information.
(a) Any person who operates a social media Internet Web site with physical presence in California shall develop a strategic plan to verify news stories shared on its Internet Web site.
(b) The strategic plan shall include, but is not limited to, all of the following:
(1) A plan to mitigate the spread of false information through news stories.
(2) The utilization of fact-checkers to verify news stories.
(3) Providing outreach to social media users regarding news stories containing false information.
(4) Placing a warning on a news story containing false information.
(c) As used in this section, “social media” means an electronic service or account, or electronic content, including, but not limited to, videos, still photographs, blogs, video blogs, podcasts, instant and text messages, email, online services or accounts, or Internet Web site profiles or locations.
Who will be able to afford to hire “fact checkers”? Not the alternative web sites you depend on to clarify the fake news so often put out by CNN or The New York Times. Those and other MSM outlets were responsible for repeating ad nauseam the fake news regarding a non-existent WMD threat from Iraq. Those MSM lies launched the 17-year-long war and occupation which has now claimed more than a million lives. And even if independent news outlets could afford “fact checkers,” they would need to be officially sanctioned, no doubt. And nothing could prevent Pan’s corporate friends from banning or placing warnings all over any videos they deemed “inappropriate” for whatever reason they might choose.
Only the very large news outlets that dominate the mainstream media – Fox Noise, CNN, MSNBC, the Washington Post, USA Today – and a select few others in print and online will be able to stay in business. Only the publications that never tell us anything useful will be able to have their stories “fact checked.” The idea is to bury all truth about dangerous vaccines, (MMR, Shingles, Gardasil. . . ) Monsanto’s Roundup cancer herbicide, harmful GM foods, toxic chemical farming, the aerial poisoning of the entire country, water fluoridation and other water problems, nanobots, Black-Ops, EMF dangers, banking crimes, endless undeclared war, unchecked immigration, our growing fascist police state, and many other corporatocracy crimes and subterfuges.
Under the guise of protecting children, Mr. Pan forced parents to give up their parental rights and turn them over to the government. California law now says the children must submit to whatever vaccinations the government – along with Merck and the government’s other corporate partners – declare that they “need.”
Under the guise of combating “fake news,” Mr. Pan now leads the charge to wipe out all mainstream news competition. He wants to be sure that MSM newsfakers are the only ones to which we will have unfettered access, to better keep all his dirty work and dirty money in the dark.
Mr. Rappoport explains that if this bill passes, agencies of the California government will develop numerous regulations for enforcement, including penalties for “speech criminals.”
This bill would not violate the 1st Amendment so much as wipe it out altogether.
Anything which Mr. Pan and his cronies would label a “conspiracy theory” – a term which the CIA put out in its infamous internal 1967 memo that sought to silence all criticism of the fact-challenged Warren Commission report that most of the country knew was full of lies – will be censored. Warnings on any blog, comment or story not officially sanctioned will make most people turn away, if not run. The idea is to make people afraid of their own shadow, like the CNN newsfaker Chris Cuomo telling us last year that only CNN was allowed to read Wikileaks leaked emails, that it was illegal for the rest of us to do so.
Mr. Rappoport calls for a “relentless tsunami of protest in California over this Orwellian bill.” Anything less than that could turn these hounds of hell loose on all news not sanctioned by Richard Pan and the dysfunctional state he leads into one bad law after another.
Jon Rappoport explains:
“In case you believe there are too many websites and blogs based in California to enforce a new draconian law, let me explain how the game works. Behind closed doors, the state government would decide to focus on a few big issues. For example, gun control, vaccines, and immigration. Enforcement agencies would go after the biggest Internet operations expressing politically unacceptable points of view on those subjects. At first. A spread of smaller operations would feel the heat later.
So-called fact checkers would come from government supported groups who agree with Official Positions. In other words, they wouldn’t be fact checkers at all. They would be prime news fakers.”
When it comes to vaccines, for one example (like the awful shingles vaccine), they would cite the notoriously biased “experts” at the Centers for Disease Control, never mentioning that CDC buys and sells $4 billion of vaccines a year, and is hopelessly corrupt, partnering with Big Pharma and industry rather than regulating them.
California Bill to Stifle Free Speech
If we can’t crush this bill, we may not be able to hang on to what little is left of our ever-vanishing democracy. Expect all the mainstream news whores and fakers to stand solidly behind it, because they are working for outlets which will be protected by it, as it seeks to wipe out their independent competition across the world. Everyone knows by now that many, many non-mainstream, independent news outlets are way better, and more honest, than the MSM at reporting actual news that matters. And way better at giving us the truth that the MSM so studiously avoids disclosing, so as not to displease their corporate sponsors and masters.
It’s a dirty world, but we could clean it up, if we can first identify the main sleaze bags doing the dirty work for Empire, people like California Senator Richard Pan.
The CDC director has been caught buying shares of vaccine maker Merck, as well as stock in cigarette and junk food companies. Last week, CDC Director Dr. Brenda Fitzgerald was forced to resign as a result. This is the latest scandal in an agency which has been found time and again to collude with the very companies it is supposed to regulate.
Shame on you, Dr. Fitzgerald! But perhaps we should also thank you for showing the world once again how the CDC unashamedly promotes dangerous drugs and vaccines to boost both corporate and personal profits. This scandal makes it abundantly clear that rather than regulate the drug industry, the CDC is in bed with it. This latest CDC collusion scandal should be a clarion call for regulatory reform. Closer to home, it should make any thinking person question the CDC’s methods, motives, and history.
CDC Heads’ History of Corruption
As for Dr. Fitzgerald, don’t worry about her. She will likely land on her feet in some well-paying job with Merck, as one of her predecessors did after being outed as a corporate shill masquerading as a public servant. Dr. Julie Gerberding has set the bar quite low for former CDC heads who sold out to Merck, but Dr. Fitz can probably take it lower. While head of the CDC, the infamous Dr. Gerberding helped cover up Merck’s knowledge of the MMR Vaccine-Autism link, then resigned in shame to take a $2 million windfall and head up Merck’s vaccine division.
Falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus
“False in one, false in all” is the Latin saying. Or, as Nietzsche said, “It doesn’t bother me that you lied to me. What bothers me is that I can no longer believe you now.” The CDC has deceived us so many times, it’s a wonder that the agency still gets to use our tax dollars to work against us.
The CDC’s Great Swine Flu Massacre
CDC collusion with drug and vaccine makers was probably never so clear as when the CDC launched the great swine flu massacre on us all in 1976. Money, as usual, not our health, was the driving force. Drug companies had produced a vaccine which suspicious pig farmers had refused to use on their own swine. Because when they did, their pigs collapsed and died. When the swine flu “vaccine” makers (which included Merck, which now makes a shingles vaccine, the horrendous Gardasil HPV Vaccine, and a dubious flu vaccine) failed to secure the $80 million the company had counted on getting from the swine breeders, some bright folks working in government and industry decided to use the vaccine on people instead. But first they had to convince us the swine flu threat was real. It wasn’t, so they turned to then President Gerald Ford to sell the disease to the people. (As George Merck once told TIME magazine: you don’t sell the drug, you sell the disease. The CDC knows that as well as anyone.)
The impetus for the whole swinish project came from the Disease Control Center in Atlanta, Georgia. Out of Atlanta came the CDC plan for a national campaign against “swine flu.” That there was not a single independently confirmed case of swine flu in the U.S. did not deter the CDC.* They had vaccine to sell. (Theirs was not to question why.)
Smart Pig Farmers, Bad Pigs in Government and Industry
The agency helped get top dollar for Merck and other “swine flu” vaccine makers. Our government paid $135 million for the same swine flu vaccine which Merck and others had failed to sell to smart pig farmers for $80 million.
*The main problem then was that Dr. Anthony Morris, director of the Virus Bureau at the FDA, declared that no authentic swine flu vaccine could exist, because there had never been any cases of swine flu on which to test it. The agency promptly fired the whistleblowing doctor (some things never change); but the truth had leaked out – as the truth tends to do.
Faced with the insurmountable problem that there was no swine flu, much less an epidemic – except in the money-green heads of those wishing to sell the vaccine – President Ford and Walter Cronkite (at CBS) combined their bully pulpits in a last-ditch effort to sell the swine flu “vaccine” to the people. (There was money to be made, by God; so somebody needed to promote the shot, if only to justify the $135 million paid to the swinish flu vaccine makers.)
Death by Injection
Eustace Mullins in his amazingly-researched Death by Injection points out that CBS failed then and later to air any scientific analysis of the swine flu vaccine, “which was identified elsewhere as containing many toxic poisons, including alien viral protein particles, formaldehyde, residues of chicken and egg embryo substances, sucrose, theimorosal (a derivative of poisonous mercury), polysorbate and some 80 other substances.” (Some things never change.)
Dr. Anthony Morris erased from Swine Flu History
“Our” medical watchdogs, meanwhile, cleaned out Dr. Anthony Morris’ labs, where he had been hard at work investigating the swine flu vaccine for three years. They killed all his animals and burned all his records. Mr. Mullins writes: “They did not go so far as to sow salt throughout the area, because they believed their job was done.”
(Some things never change: the CDC has also been recently accused by whistleblower William Thompson of destroying records that show the MMR vaccine raises the risk of autism. See the film Vaxxed, which prompted Robert De Niro and Robert F. Kennedy Jr. to offer a $100,000 reward to anyone who can prove that any vaccine is safe and effective.)
A Free Vaccine for the People (sound familiar?)
On April 15, 1976, Congress passed Public Law 94-266, which provided $135 million in taxpayer monies to pay for a national swine flu inoculation campaign. That way, they could offer the vaccine for free (as they are offering the 2018 flu vaccine for free). Insurance companies quickly warned Merck and other drug companies that they would not insure them against possible lawsuits, because no studies had been carried out which could predict the vaccine’s effects. (Some things never change; no independent safety testing has ever been done on any vaccine since). Gerald Ford was trotted out to repair the PR damage done by insurance companies. The president appealed directly to 250 million Americans on national television. He proudly told the public the shot was free. (And who doesn’t like the sound of that?)
$1.3 Billion Fallout
The big swine flu campaign had barely been completed when casualty reports began to flow in. Claims totaling $1.3 billion had been filed by victims who had suffered paralysis. (That total easily dwarfed the $135 million paid to the vaccine makers for the “free” vaccine, but pay no attention to that man behind the curtain). The medical “authorities” leaped to the defense of the vaccine makers, labeling the new epidemic “Guillain-Barre Syndrome.”
Within two months of the shots that began Oct. 1976, at least 500 people were paralyzed. More than 30 people had died. Amid a rising uproar and growing public reluctance to risk the shot, federal officials abruptly canceled the program on Dec. 16, 1976.
In the end, 40 million Americans submitted to the shot. There was no swine flu epidemic. The only recorded fatality from swine flu itself was a private at Fort Dix, who a military doctor claimed had been diagnosed with swine flu. The CDC verified that finding. Given how the agency handled the whistleblowing of Dr. Anthony Morris, and how the agency has tried to bury the whistleblowing of senior scientist William Thompson, one can fairly wonder today if even the one person whom the agency claims died of Swine flu actually succumbed to that malady.
The CDC, meanwhile, continues its cozy relationship with Merck Pharmaceuticals and other vaccine manufacturers. The CDC itself owns more than 50 vaccine patents. It is in the business of both profiting from and promoting vaccines while it also is entrusted to being a regulator. Can this agency be a fair arbiter of the truth when its vaccine patent ownership gives it clear conflicts of interest, and when time and again it has shown itself to be in the pocket of the pharmaceutical companies like Merck and others?
Some things never change, but we can change them. It’s possible. We can learn to think for ourselves, and not roll over every time “our” compromised CDC tells us to do something, or claims to be a legitimate watchdog. The CDC tries to destroy real watchdogs, while promoting to the top of its food chain its most industry-compromised individuals, the likes of Dr. Julie Gerberding and Dr. Brenda Fitzgerald. We, the American people, deserve better, a lot better than what the old confederate General Robert E. Lee called “those people.”
WebMD shills for Monsanto, Big Pharma, and other corporate giants. Natural News has revealed how WebMD has never seen a Monsanto product or a Big Pharma drug or vaccination that it didn’t like. It promotes them all, without question or critical comment. Why?
It’s the Advertising Money, Stupid
WebMD takes most of its advertising money from Big Pharma corporations like Merck, maker of the dubious shingles vaccine, the dangerous MMR vaccine, and other troublesome vaccines that are far from as safe or as effective as advertised by Merck and WebMD. The company known as WebMD is one that clearly knows which industry giants are paying its bills. WebMD is, in point of fact, little more than a tireless promoter of not only Big Pharma drugs and ethically-challenged Monsanto, but any and all vaccination, regardless of real science (or lack thereof) or circumstances.
Passive GMO Promotion
Corporate sponsorships taint WebMD’s recommendations and “passive” promotion techniques. WebMD advertisements are often designed to look more like editorials to disguise their real intent, fooling readers into thinking that the advertising they see is actually news of some sort.
Monsanto WebMD Partnership
Monsanto uses WebMD’s influence to serve its own agenda. Monsanto produces several sponsored “advertorials” that can easily be mistaken for “real” content rather than marketing propaganda. Monsanto also uses independent third parties to manipulate GMO content on WebMD’s web site. (Monsanto also colludes with the EPA to play down the dangers of Roundup and promote it.)
Web MD Internet’s Most Visited Health Site
WebMD is, unfortunately for the truth, the internet’s most visited health site. Public perception is that it’s a trustworthy source of “independent and objective” health information. Nothing could be further from the truth. WebMD is a thinly-disguised corporate shill masquerading as a news site. WebMD uses its influence to shamelessly promote corporate-backed health products and protocols.
WebMD’s Journalistic Subterfuge destroys Credibility
WebMD “Partnerships” destroy any credibility the site may have once had. Partnerships and sponsorships infect WebMD’s recommendations across the board. “Passive” promotion techniques include advertisements designed to look like editorials. This is journalistic subterfuge at its worst, and its most sophisticated.
Web MD Rigs Phony Test for Depression
The pharmaceutical drug industry’s capture of WebMD has been clear for a long while and is nearly complete. In just one egregious example, Dr. Mercola has reported how WebMD’s free online depression test in 2010 was rigged to make any person responding feel like she needed professional help. The only result a test respondent could receive was that she was at risk for major depression and should discuss her options with a doctor.
That phony “test” was sponsored by Cymbalta maker Eli Lilly. The test’s intent was obvious – to make a person inquire about antidepressants, and hopefully start taking them, preferably forever.
This advertisement dressed up as a “consumer aid” to make people go from feeling normal to depressed caught the attention of Senator Charles Grassley. He launched an investigation, but that announcement changed no laws and apparently no perceptions. WebMD continues to hide advertising business as usual. Consumer Beware!
Web MD Aids Monsanto
Monsanto is one of the latest multinational corporate giants to use WebMD for its own hidden agenda. Nearly every WebMD article now includes a Monsanto-sponsored ad that boldly declares: “It’s time for a bigger discussion about food.” This clever propaganda then links to Monsanto’s corporate take on soil, water, and honey bee-disappearance, with no other contributor’s point of view allowed.
Marketing Strategists Tout “Advertorial Sponsorships”
Marketing strategists say “advertorial sponsorships” are the best way to sell something today. They are designed to fool consumers, so that they don’t realize they’re being sold something.
Back in the day, before deep-pocketed advertisers called the shots and completely ruled the publishing world, the line between editorial and advertising content was clear. You knew whether you were reading an advertisement or an editorial. Today, readers practically need degrees in journalism and science to know what they’re reading, who sponsored it, and why.
A business has to pay for a sponsorship/advertorial just like it would a regular ad. In some cases, businesses pay significantly more than they would for a regular ad. But corporations consider the expense of a sponsorship/advertorial ad well worth the cost.
As Dr. Mercola explains: “The venue where your sponsored advertorial is going (in this case, WebMD and its affiliates) has no input on the content – the advertiser has full control over the text of the ‘informative’ ad. The advertiser can control how the information is presented on the page, as opposed to having to select a regular display ad format.”
The sponsored advertorial can be used in multiple publications. Companies can reuse a sponsored advertorial as a stand-alone ad in other places.
‘Native Advertising’ further Blurs the Line Between Ads and Independent Content
Another form of this type of shrouded sales presentation is called “native advertising.” The key difference between a native ad and an advertorial is that a native ad fits more seamlessly into the Website which features it, making it even less noticeable as a sales pitch.
This sneaky ad is designed to make you think you’re reading a regular content article, when in fact it’s all marketing. In the case of WebMD, the advertorial/native ad line is so thin as to be non-existent. Many of WebMD’s disclaimers are barely noticeable, and rendered in a typeset which manipulates readers into skipping them entirely.
Dr. Mercola explains: “This all amounts to massive collusion on the part of the industries partnering with WebMD to sell THEIR health goals and products without you realizing you’ve been sold something that may or may not be in your best interest at all.”
WebMD pushes Vaccination
When it comes to vaccination, WebMD publishes only those articles which make it seem as if vaccination is a tried and true science without enormous problems, which include lawsuits for dubious vaccines like Merck’s Zostavax. Vaccination “science” is far from settled, but you wouldn’t know that if you read only WebMD’s narow take on the subject. The same goes for Monsanto products, and Big Pharma drugs.
WebMD shills for Monsanto & Big Pharma
If you want to find out what is really going on in the world of GMO foods, Big Pharma drugs, and vaccination safety and efficacy, the best thing you could do is avoid WebMD. You will find little truth there not colored by WebMD’s fealty to its corporate and government sponsors. Selah!
Are the advertised benefits of the shingles vaccine worth the risks? Merck’s own paid-for studies show those who receive the shingles vaccine may have, at best, a 50-50 chance of avoiding shingles. Therefore, whether the vaccine can help someone is a coin flip at best. (Please keep in mind that nobody is arguing that shingles is not a potential problem. Everyone agrees on that point.) Meanwhile, Merck’s Zostavax vaccine has caused thousands of people serious “side effects.”
Shingles Vaccine Side Effects
Problems from the shingles vaccine include shingles itself, with its debilitating nerve pain (postherpetic neuralgia) and eye damage that can involve potential blindness. Many shingles vaccine lawsuits have been filed for people who were vaccinated and then developed shingles a short time afterwards. Thousands of adverse events have been reported from people who have risked taking the vaccine.
Does Zostavax prevent shingles?
Not only does Merck’s shingles vaccine provide scant protection (if any) against one’s having a shingles outbreak, it may cause problems as bad or worse than shingles itself. More than 31,000 adverse effects from Zostavax have been reported to VAERS, the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System. It is a well accepted fact that just one to ten percent (1-10%) of adverse reactions are reported for bad drug reactions. Consequently, it is not a stretch to estimate that more than 310,000 people have likely suffered adverse events from the shingles vaccine.
300,000 Adverse Reactions to Shingles Vaccine
Anyone considering Zostavax should take some time to read a few of these horrific reactions to the shingles vaccine.
Costly Chances, Serious Adverse Events
Seniors are the primary target for the shingles vaccine. Those on Medicare expect Medicare Part D will pay for it. But if the deductible has not been met, Zostavax’ full cost plus the fee for it can range from $190 to more than$350. The patient may need to pay it all.
A review article on herpes zoster, published in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) generated a comment by Roy Fried, MD. MHS regarding the number of serious adverse events (AE) after the shingles vaccine:
For persons over 60, there is a 36% increase incidence of serious adverse events (AEs) within the first 42 days when data from and FDA safety study was combined with data from the Shingles Prevention Study.
For persons over 80, Zostavax’ ability to prevent shingles or postherpetic neuralgia (PHN) was no better than placebo AND these seniors had nearly double the rate of serious AEs in the first 42 days after their vaccination.
Vaccination fails to Lessen Pain of Outbreak
Big Pharma’s highly lucrative vaccine industry always assisted by the CDC frequently promotes the idea that even if a vaccine fails to keep one from getting sick, one will have a “less severe case.” A most dubious claim with every vaccination, it is a patently false claim with Zostavax. The FDA reported that shingles-vaccinated people who still developed shingles suffered severity of pain at the same level as that experienced by unvaccinated people who contracted shingles. In addition, the vaccinated group reported experiencing pain for just two days less than the pain reported by the unvaccinated (20 days vs. 22 days).
Shingles Shot Ingredients
The shingles shot was recently found contaminated with carcinogenic glyphosate, though that is not declared on the label. This makes one wonder what else is not declared in the ingredients. What is contained is alarming enough, including porcine gelatin, MSG, and aborted fetal cells.
The Shingles shot contains:
Viral Particles: At least 19,400 PFU (plaque forming units) – 14 times more viral particles than in the chickenpox vaccine.
• Pig: porcine gelatin – 15.58mg – known to cause anaphylaxis and food allergies
• Cow: bovine serum – known to cause anaphylaxis and food allergies
• Aborted Human cells: MRC-5 cells
• Antibiotic: Neomycin
• Chemical: sodium chloride (table salt) – 4.0 mg
• Chemical: MSG, 0.62mg
• Chemical: sodium phosphate dibasic, 0.57mg
• Chemical: potassium phosphate monobasic, 0.10mg
• Chemical: potassium chloride, 0.10 mg
• Chemical: sucrose, 31.16 mg
Thousands of people injured by the Zostavax vaccine for shingles are suing Merck in Shingles Vaccine Lawsuits. The company that makes Zostavax has caused worse complications than shingles itself. “Side effects” (actual effects!) from Merck’s singles vaccine include shingles, meningitis, encephalitis, stroke, palsy, eye injuries, and many others. These so-called side effects are all features of shingles.
Zostavax was approved by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) despite a dearth of convincing efficacy tests. The CDC has since recommended that only those 60 and older should take the vaccine. The FDA, by contrast, approved it for people 50 and older. The CDC has also warned that those aged 50 – 59 may lose the alleged protection benefits of the vaccine by the time they reach 60.
People in their 60s are at the greatest risk of getting shingles, which is why the CDC recommends it for that age group. Meanwhile, the vaccine’s labeling does not make clear how long an injection might last (if it works at all, which is an open question). The CDC recommends that people don’t get the shot until they are at least 60, because that’s probably when they are going to need it the most.
Shingles Vaccine Efficacy Questionable
The CDC has stated – with Merck’s encouragement through short-term studies – that the Zostovax vaccine reduces the risk of shingles by a mere 51 percent. That paltry number makes it difficult to discern whether it works at all for anyone. Two unconvincing studies by Merck provide flimsy cover for whether the vaccine works at all or is worth the risk.
Shingles Vaccine Injury Lawyer
Attorney David Matthews, whose law firm is handling shingles cases, said injuries from the Zostavax vaccine are many and varied. Shingles vaccine injuries can vary from a person’s contracting shingles to going blind in one eye, suffering brain damage or paralysis in the extremities, or even dying.
Mr. Matthews said, “Merck failed to warn about Zostavax’ serious side effects and the vaccine doesn’t do what Merck claims it does.” (Related: Shingles vaccine made with pig gelatin, MSG and residual components of human DNA from an aborted fetus. Why?)
Responding to a Natural News story, a Merck spokesperson said, “Nothing is more important to Merck than the safety of our medicines and vaccines.”
If so, then why are thousands of people experiencing ailments associated with the disease the vaccine is supposed to cure? Part of the problem appears to be that the vaccine is made from a live shingles virus. Is Zostavax causing more harm than good? According to Shingles vaccine lawsuits, that is exactly what is happening.
• Zostavax was approved by the FDA in 2006.
• Zostavax pulled in $749 million in sales for Merck in 2016.
• Zostavax is the only approved shingles vaccine in the United States.
Meanwhile, GlaxoSmithKline is working on a second shingles vaccine called Shingrix. GSK is still seeking FDA approval for its new vaccine.
Merck is being sued for its alleged shingles vaccine. A Nevada woman filed a Merck shingles vaccine lawsuit against Merck on February 23, 2017. The woman said she suffered several injuries as a result of Merck’s Zostavax Shingles Vaccine. Her petition said she suffered an eye injury, high blood pressure, and other personal indignities from Merck & Co.’s Zostavax. Law 360 reported that this lawsuit appears to be the first filed over Merck’s artificial immunity shot for shingles. The case was filed in Philadelphia’s Court of Common Pleas.
Failure to Warn
The plaintiff says in her petition that the Zostavax vaccine’s patient information sheet and label and prescribing information failed to warn of the risk of viral infection. Her complaint referenced several reports that followed the vaccine’s introduction in 2006. The reports linked Zostavax to viral infections leading to disease of the central nervous system.
Shingles Warning Label Added
Merck added a warning to Zostavax’ label in August 2014, which said the vaccine could raise one’s risk of getting shingles, but that warning never reached the plaintiff, according to her petition. There can typically be lag time between the announcement of a label change and any label changes actually taking effect; so legal arguments in the case will at least partly concern whether that label change ever reached the Plaintiff.
The plaintiff said in her petition: “Despite this information and the potential correlation between being administered the Zostavax vaccine and developing an infection within a relatively short period of time, leading to the development of shingles or varicella-zoster virus pneumonia, Merck failed to properly address and provide this information both to patients and the medical providers prescribing the vaccine.”
Shingles Vaccine approved by FDA
The shingles vaccination is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for the prevention of shingles in people 60 and older. The plaintiff received the shot in November 2014, according to her petition. Shortly afterwards, she said she developed a headache, dizziness, blurred vision. Her complaint said she continues to suffer from injuries to her right eye, elevated blood pressure, headaches, and dizziness. She said the only warnings she received with documentation that accompanied the vaccine indicated the possibility of rash and itching at the injection site.
Vaccine Safety Questioned in Scientific, Medical Journals
The plaintiff in her petition blames Merck & Co. for making and marketing the vaccine when it was aware of the infection risks. She referenced several scientific and medical journals that have questioned the vaccine’s safety.
Merck Shingles Vaccine Lawsuit Filed
The complaint includes claims for negligence, design defect, failure to warn, breaches of express and implied warranties, fraudulent and negligent misrepresentation, unjust enrichment. The plaintiff also seeks punitive damages.
Shingles Vaccine Attorney
The plaintiff’s attorney said, “We’ve been looking at this potential case for sometime, and we believe it is highly meritorious. (We) believe the vaccine is at best 50 percent effective. Either it is not effective, or it has caused shingles and other issues, like in this case, where it has caused a serious opthamological complication.”
Shingles Vaccine from Jacked-up Chickenpox Vaccine
The shingles vaccine shot for artificial immunity is primarily a more potent version of Merck’s chickenpox vaccine, Varivax. Zostavax came from Merck’s European joint vaccine venture with Sanofi. Merck and Sanofi disbanded in 2016.
The case is Bentley v. Merck & Co. Inc. et al, case number 161004102 in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas.
Many people who at least look at a thing and smell it before they eat it think nothing of having a mysterious liquid injected directly into their blood. Many who read food labels for every last ingredient have no idea what they are taking in a vaccine injection. The shingles vaccine, like every other, contains troubling ingredients that should give thinking people pause for reflection.
Some Common Vaccine Ingredients Procon.org lists vaccine ingredients (found in the final vaccine product), process ingredients (things used to create the vaccine that may or may not appear in the final product), and growth mediums (substances in which vaccines are grown) for vaccines approved by the FDA and recommended by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC.) Controversial products used to make vaccines include African Green Monkey (Vero) cells, aluminum, cow products, Cocker Spaniel cells, formaldehyde, human fetal lung tissue cells, insect products, mouse brains.
Zostovax Shingles Vaccine Ingredients
Merck’s Zostavax shingles vaccine includes monosodium L-glutamate (MSG), aborted fetal cells (MRC-5*), bovine calf serum (blood taken from “domestic” cattle), Neomycin (an antibiotic used to prevent or treat bacterial infections),
Aborted Fetal Cells?
Can human beings who consider themselves “pro-life” take a guilt-free shingles vaccination? Would even those who are immune to moral arguments order anything on any menu anywhere if that ingredient were listed? It’s one thing to eat the veal calf meat of a tortured animal, but imbibing in human fetal tissue would seem beyond the pale for the morally upright.
*According to procon.org, MRC-5 (Medical Research Council 5) is a common vaccine ingredient “composed of human diploid cells (cells containing two sets of chromosomes) derived from the normal lung tissues of a 14-week-old male fetus aborted for ‘psychiatric reasons’ in 1966 in the United Kingdom, Eagle’s Basal Medium in Earle’s balanced salt solution with bovine serum.” Even those who might prefer to bend sinister from their lofty moral high ground by accepting the vaccine maker’s dubious implication that it’s ok to abort for ‘psychiatric reasons,’ even those folks may want to consider that being injected with a mentally damaged person’s DNA material may not be the “smartest” move they’ve ever made.
Possible side effects of ZOSTAVAX?
Merck reports no moral repugnance, or even ambivalence, over its shingles Zostavax vaccine. Merck does, however, list “the most common side effects that people in the clinical studies reported after receiving the vaccine.” They include:
• redness, pain, itching, swelling, hard lump, warmth, or bruising at the shot site
• allergic reactions, which may be serious and may include difficulty in breathing or swallowing. If you have an allergic reaction, call your doctor right away.
• hives at the injection site
• joint pain
• muscle pain
• rash at the injection site
• shingles (warned since 2015)
• swollen glands near the injection site (that may last a few days to a few weeks)
Merck also warns that you should not get ZOSTAVAX if you:
• are allergic to any of its ingredients.
• are allergic to gelatin or neomycin.
• have a weakened immune system (immune deficiency, leukemia, lymphoma, HIV/AIDS).
• take high doses of steroids by injection or by mouth.
• are pregnant or plan to get pregnant
Shingles Vaccine Missing Warnings
Merck does not warn – as the company is not required to do so by the FDA – that the “effectiveness” of a vaccine is established not by how well the shot may work for the majority of its recipients. Effectiveness in a vaccine is determined solely by its being able to elicit an antibody response. If antibodies are produced following a vaccine, then that vaccine is determined to be “effective.” The presence of those antibodies, however, has no known causal relationship with whether or not that vaccination will offer protection against infection. If that language were in the “Warnings,” one wonders how many people would take this vaccine, or any other for that matter, without our daily avalanche of vaccine propaganda. It is certainly fair to ask how well this shingles vaccine works. It is fair to ask whether this vaccine is worth the risk of taking it.
Got glyphosate? It comes at no extra charge with your shingles vaccination, and several other vaccinations as well. Shingles and other vaccine batches have widely been found to be contaminated with glyphosate. A probable carcinogen banned in France and many other civilized countries, glyphosate has recently been found in several different shingles vaccine batches. Glyphosate is not listed in shingles (Zostavax) vaccine ingredients, a violation even of the lax law the U.S. government lays down for the vaccine industry it promotes and protects. The U.S. is busy now seeding the Zika (hoax) Vaccine Industry.
Glyphosate in Shingles, MMR, Hep B, Tetanus, Flu Vaccines
Mosanto’s pesticide has been found not only in the shingles vaccine, but in several other vaccines as well, including MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella) vaccine; Diptheria, Tetanus, Pertussis; Hepatitis B, (Pneumonococcus); Influenza; Varicella, Chicken Pox.
Glyphosate in Peer Reviewed Research Papers
The glyphosate contamination was found by scientist Anthony Samsel, who has published five previous peer-reviewed research papers on glyphosate. Mr. Samsel examined multiple vaccines from several different manufacturers and laboratories looking at the same vaccines. He was not simply looking at a single dose. He looked at vaccines that included gelatin.
Zostovax Glyphosate Contamination
Merck’s Zostovax Shingles vaccine is contaminated with glyphosate at 2.9 parts per billion (ppb). MMR vaccine was found to be contaminated with glyphosate. GSK’s Hep B virus was contaminated with glyphosate. The flu vaccine is contaminated with glyphosate. Most of the vaccines he examined were contaminated with glyphosate. Mr. Samsel found glyphosate-contaminated vaccines from all the big vaccine masters, including Merck, Sanofi-Pasteur, GlaxoSmithKline, Novartis, Wyeth.
Mr. Samsel surmised that most of the glyphosate was bioaccumulated from bone, which is used as gelatin in the vaccines.
Mr. Samsel and Stephanie Seneff have just gotten their fifth peer reviewed paper on Glyphosate published: “Glyphosate pathways to modern diseases V: Amino acid analogue of glycine in diverse proteins”. The glyphosate vaccine contamination research will be published in their sixth peer-reviewed paper on glyphosate.
Glyphosate Vaccine Contamination Pathway
One possible explanation for the contamination is the animal “byproducts” used in the vaccines. Vaccine batch makers sometimes use animal byproducts such as chicken egg protein or gelatine, which comes from bones. In addition, if those vaccine makers are using animals slaughtered via factory farms, then chances are they were fed GMOs and other glyphosate-tainted feed. Those tortured animals could then pick up Glyphosate in their systems, just as human animals do, to the great detriment of their gut health. Egg protein and gelatine made from these animals may consequently also contain glyphosate, which could then contaminate vaccines that are laced with these GMO products. This delivery system can consequently trigger a cascade of health problems and diseases, including cancer.
Anthony Samsel, however, made no such claims. He simply gathered information that showed glyphosate contamination in the vaccines. He collected vast samples of these popular vaccines, had them tested by multiple U.S. labs for glyphosate, and found that most were largely contaminated by it.
Shingles Vaccine contaminated with Glyphosate
Mr. Samsel alerted his U.S. Senator, as well as several U.S. Government and international organizations such as CDC, FDA and WHO. The World Health Organization in 2015 declared glyphosate a probable carcinogen. Significantly, glyphosate is the only active ingredient declared in Roundup, which is far more toxic than glyphosate alone, as Roundup features several adjuvants in the mix. Glyphosate is never used by itself, so it is highly likely that many or all of the other ingredients of Roundup can also be found in vaccines.
Will the vaccine profiteers and apologists kill all the doctors who have not only refused to jump on the vaccination bandwagon, but who are telling everybody else to get the hell off of it? The murder of Dr. James Bradstreet has fortunately not stopped many doctors from speaking the truth about the harms of vaccination.
“The greatest lie ever told is that vaccines are safe and effective.” –Dr. Leonard G. Horowitz
“The chief, if not the sole cause of the monstrous increase in cancer has been vaccination.” –Dr. Robert Bell, once Vice President, International Society for Cancer Research at the British Cancer Hospital
“Vaccines are highly dangerous, have never been adequately studied or proven to be effective, and have a poor risk/reward ratio.” –Dr. Allen Greenberg, MD
“In my medical career I’ve treated vaccinated and unvaccinated children and the unvaccinated children are far healthier than the vaccinated ones.” – Dr. Philip Incao, MD
“I found the whole vaccine business was indeed a gigantic hoax. Most doctors are convinced that they are useful, but if you look at the proper statistics and study the instances of these diseases you will realize that this is not so.” – Dr. Archivides Kalokerinos, MD
“It is dangerously misleading to say that vaccines make us “immume” or protect against disease, when in fact that is the exact opposite of the truth. Vaccines only drive disease deeper and cause us to harbor it chronically.” – Dr. Richard Moscowitz, MD
“The vaccinations are not working and they are dangerous. We should be working with nature.” – Dr. Lendon Smith, MD
“There is no scientific evidence that vaccinations are of any benefit, but it is clear that they cause a great deal of harm.” – Dr. Gerhard Buchwald, MD
“All vaccines are and have been causing ischemic (impaired blood flow) damage – to all – creating a plethora of chronic illnesses, disease, and in some instances, death. The injury from vaccination is additive; each vaccination further injures.” – Dr. Andrew Moulden MD, PhD
“When you impair the brain blood flow by vaccination you can impair the respiration control center which can result in death. We call it SIDS.” – Dr. Andrew Moulden MD, PhD
“Vaccination is the most dangerous medical practice in the history of classical medicine.” – Dr. Sladjana Velkov (Macedonia)
[With vaccination] “what in reality is prevented is not the disease but the ability of our cellular immune system to manifest, to respond to and to overcome the disease! There is no system of the human being, from mind to muscles to immune system, which gets stronger through avoiding challenges, but only through overcoming challenges.” – Dr. Philip Incao, MD
“I have lectured all over the world… I have always had a special interest in newspapers. All of them have one thing in common, there is always some reference made to some epidemic in some part of the world. For instance, two years ago, one paper referred to a polio epidemic in Holland. For the past three years, our newspapers have commented on the diphtheria epidemic in Russia. By these means, the population is constantly threatened with epidemics, they have been made to fear them, and the reports always conclude: “Go and get vaccinated.” – Dr. Gerhard Buchwald, MD
“To create fear among parents to strengthen their motivation to vaccinate is an important part of the publicity used to promote vaccinations. A whole branch of research is examining the question: What level of fear needs to be created to appear as convincing as possible?” – Dr. Gerhard Buchwald, MD
“In 1866, an English physician described a very strange illness. Children looked like Mongols. His name was Down. That’s why we call it Down’s Syndrome today… I should add that this syndrome is a result of the vaccinations carried throughout England by Jenner in 1796… It (Down’s Syndrome) is probably the first congenital disease caused by vaccinations. In Germany, the first child with evidence of Down’s Syndrome was reported in 1922. Today, one in every 700 newborns has it.” – Dr. Gerhard Buchwald, MD
“There is insufficient evidence to support routine vaccination of healthy persons of any age.” – Dr. Paul Frame, MD, Journal of Family Practice
“Only after realizing that routine immunizations were dangerous did I achieve a substantial drop in infant death rates.” – Dr. Archivides Kalokerinos, MD
“I’ll talk about vaccines. Number one, vaccines make people sick. They don’t work. They don’t protect. The use of vaccines is totally wrong! It’s perfect nonsense based on fear. They are dangerous. One child out of five has overwhelming disabilities from vaccines – neurological problems, seizures. I’ve got a whole list. There are plenty of books on this subject. Doctors don’t even read about this.” – Dr. Guylaine Lanctot, MD
“During those 30 years I have run against so many histories of little children who had never seen a sick day until they were vaccinated and who, in the several years that have followed, have never seen a well day since. I couldn’t put my finger on the disease they have. They just weren’t strong. Their resistance was gone. They were perfectly well before they were vaccinated. They have never been well since.” – Dr. William Howard Hay, MD
“Nobody needs to be confused but everybody better be darn well frightened about taking any vaccine, under any circumstance, for any reason, at any time in their life.” – Dr. Daniel H. Duffy Sr., DC (retired air force officer – 21 yrs., family doctor – 28 yrs., vaccination researcher – 49 yrs.)
“I vaccinated both my children with the MMR jab, but this was before I started my research into the problems associated with it. Knowing what I know now, I would not vaccinate my children and run the risk of them getting diabetes, asthma, eczema, becoming more susceptible to meningitis and ending up chronically disabled.” – Dr. Jayne Donegan, GP, Homeopath
“Had my mother and father known that the poliovirus vaccines of the 1950s were heavily contaminated with more than 26 monkey viruses, including the cancer virus SV40, I can say with certainty that they would not have allowed their children and themselves to take those vaccines. Both of my parents might not have developed cancers suspected of being vaccine-related, and might even be alive today.” – Dr. Howard B. Urnovitz, PhD, CEO, CSO and co-founder of Chronix Biomedical
“Childhood vaccines are giving us a world of chronic illness: autism, developmental disorders, Asperger’s Syndrome, brain tumors, leukemia, cancers, information processing disorders, impulsive violence, allergies, asthma, diabetes, Crohn’s disease, intestinal disorders, are just some of the vaccine associated disorders.” – Dr. Tedd Koren, DC
“I am no longer trying to dig up evidence to prove vaccines cause autism. There is already abundant evidence. This debate is not scientific but is political.” Dr. David Ayoub, MD
“There are at least seven laboratory studies, clinical studies, of blood, cerebral, spinal fluid, biopsies of autistic children which show huge differences between autistic children and normal children in terms of the presence of things like measles vaccine virus in their intestinal tract, for example, or their neurons. So, there’s one line of evidence. Another, of course, is that we have data from thousands of parents who testify, often with videotapes and photographs and eyewitness reports, that their kid was perfectly normal. And they can demonstrate it, as I say, very conclusively with tapes, until after the vaccine. The kid retreated into autism. There’s just converging evidence from many, many directions.” – Dr. Bernard Rimland, PhD, Founder and Former Director of the Autism Research Institute
“When the link between the use of unsafe, mercury-laden vaccine and autism, ADHD, asthma, allergies and diabetes becomes undeniable, mainstream medicine will be sporting a huge, self-inflicted and well-deserved black eye. Then will come the billion-dollar awards, by enraged juries, to the children and their families.” – Dr. Bernard Rimland, PhD, founder and former director of the Autism Research Institute
“The greatest threat to our health today is the medical community, and one of their most dangerous tools is vaccination – particularly the horrific procedure of injecting foreign protein into newborn infants!” – Dr. Daniel H. Duffy, DC
The greatest threat of childhood diseases lies in the dangerous and ineffectual efforts made to prevent them through mass immunization… There is no convincing scientific evidence that mass inoculations can be credited with eliminating any childhood disease.” – Dr. Robert Mendelsohn, MD
“We are taught by the authorities that vaccines protect us against eventual aggressive viruses and microbes, and, therefore, prevent contagious illnesses and epidemics. This lie has been perpetuated for 150 years despite the ineffectiveness of vaccines in protecting against illnesses.” – Dr. Guylaine Lanctot, MD
“My suspicion, which is shared by others in my profession, is that the nearly 10,000 SIDS deaths that occur in the United States each year are related to one or more of the vaccines that are routinely given children. The pertussis vaccine is the most likely villain, but it could also be one or more of the others.” – Dr. Robert Mendelsohn, MD
“Many here voice a silent view that the Salk and Sabin Polio Vaccines, being made from monkey kidney tissue, have been directly responsible for the major increase in leukaemia in this country.” – Dr. Fred Klenner, MD
“As a clinician, my current belief which guides my practice with these children is that any child given the Hep B vaccination at birth and subsequent boosters along with DPT has received unacceptable levels of neurotoxin in the form of the ethyl mercury in the thimerosal preservative used in the vaccine. In any child with a genetic immune susceptibility (probably about one in six) this sets off a series of events that injure the brain-gut-immune system. By the time they are ready to receive the MMR vaccination, their immune system is so impaired in a great number of these children that the triple vaccine cannot be handled by the now dysfunctional immune system and they begin their obvious descent into the autistic spectrum disorder.” – Dr. Jaquelyn McCandless, MD
“In 1976 I was working in the Gulf Country around Cape York, in an aboriginal community of about 300 people. The Health Department sent around a team and vaccinated about 100 of them against flu. Six were dead within 24 hours or so and they weren’t all old people, one man being in his early twenties. They threw the bodies in trucks to take to the coast where autopsies were done. It appeared they had died from heart attacks.” – Dr. Archie Kalokerinos, MD
“As a retired physician, I can honestly say that unless you are in a serious accident, your best chance of living to a ripe old age is to avoid doctors and hospitals and learn nutrition, herbal medicine and other forms of natural medicine unless you are fortunate enough to have a naturopathic physician available. Almost all drugs are toxic and are designed only to treat symptoms and not to cure anyone. Vaccines are highly dangerous, have never been adequately studied or proven to be effective, and have a poor risk/reward ratio. Most surgery is unnecessary and most textbooks of medicine are inaccurate and deceptive. Almost every disease is said to be idiopathic (without known cause) or genetic – although this is untrue. In short, our main stream medical system is hopelessly inept and/or corrupt. The treatment of cancer and degenerative diseases is a national scandal. The sooner you learn this, the better off you will be.” – Dr. Alan Greenberg, MD
“According to the records of the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company, from 1911 to 1935 the four leading causes of childhood deaths from infectious diseases in the U.S.A. were diptheria, pertussis, scarlet fever, and measles. However, by 1945 the combined death rates from these causes had declined by 95% before the implementation of mass vaccine programs.” – Dr. Harold Buttram, MD
“I would consider the risks associated with measles vaccination unacceptable even if there were convincing evidence that the vaccine works. There isn’t. …. In 1900 there were 13.3 measles deaths per 100,000 population. By 1955, before the first measles shot, the death rate had declined 97.7 percent to only 0.03 deaths per 100,000.” – Dr. Mendelsohn, MD
“Up to 90% of the total decline in the death rate of children between 1860 and 1965, because of whooping cough, scarlet fever, diptheria, and measles, occurred before the introduction of immunizations and antibiotics.” – Dr Archie Kalokerinos, MD
“What the vaccinators don’t tell you is that communicable diseases have been declining at a steady rate for 150 years and that there is no relationship between the various diseases and the onset of immunization. Without exception, the vaccine program for each of the childhood diseases was inaugurated after that paticular diseases had begun to disappear. Contrary to what you have been told, this includes polio. What the vaccines have done is cause the various childhood diseases to become adulthood diseases – with far more serious implications, mumps in men and rubella in women for example.” – Dr. William Douglass, MD
“For thirty years kids died from smallpox vaccinations even though no longer threatened by the disease.” – Dr. Robert Mendelsohn, MD
“I am and have been for years a confirmed anti-vaccinationist. Anti-vaccination has no backing from the orthodox medical opinion. A medical man who expresses himself against vaccination loses caste. Tremendous pecuniary interests too have grown around vaccination.” – Mahatma Gandhi
“I have no faith in vaccination; I look upon it with the greatest possible disgust, and firmly believe that it is often the medium of conveying many filthy and loathsome diseases from one child to another, and no protection whatever against smallpox. Indeed, I consider we are now living in the Jennerian epoch for the slaughter of innocents, and the unthinking portion of the adult population.” – Dr. W.J. Collins, MD, BS, BSc, MRCS
“What people don’t know about vaccines –what most doctors don’t know– but well demonstrated in medical literature, is that vaccines shift your immune system to an immune suppression type of state called the “TH2 shift.” That’s what most vaccines do. They shift your immune system to a weaker, antibody type immune system… If you’re injecting people with so many vaccines that your keeping them in this constant state –that now your switching everyone to this TH2 immune suppression– then everyone becomes more susceptible [to infectious diseases]… and no one is talking about that. Now, a lot of scientists know that, but they are afraid to speak out because their careers would be ruined.” – Dr. Russell Blaylock, MD
“Using kids as guinea pigs in potentially harmful vaccine experiments is every parents’ worst nightmare. This actually happened in 1989-1991 when Kaiser Permanente of Southern California and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) jointly conducted a measles vaccine experiment. Without proper parental disclosure, the Yugoslavian-made “high titre” Edmonston-Zagreb measles vaccine was tested on 1,500 poor, primarily black and Latino, inner city children in Los Angeles. Highly recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO), the high-potency experimental vaccine was previously injected into infants in Mexico, Haiti, and Africa. It was discontinued in these countries when it was discovered that the children were dying in large numbers.” – Dr. Alan Cantwell MD
“There is no evidence that any influenza vaccine thus far developed is effective in preventing or mitigating any attack of influenza. The producers of these vaccines know that they are worthless, but they go on selling them anyway.” – Dr. J. Anthony Morris, Former Chief Vaccine Control Officer, US FDA
“My own personal view is that vaccines are unsafe and worthless. I will not allow myself to be vaccinated again. Vaccines may be profitable but in my view, they are neither safe nor effective.” – Dr. Vernon Coleman, MB, ChB, DSc (Hon)
“I once believed in Jenner; I once believed in Pasteur. I believed in vaccination. I believed in vivisection. But I changed my views as the result of hard thinking.” – Dr. Walter Hadwen, MD, LSA, MRCS, LRCP, MB
“Cancer was practically unknown until compulsory vaccination with cowpox vaccine began to be introduced. I have had to deal with at least two hundred cases of cancer, and I never saw a case of cancer in an unvaccinated person.” – Dr. W. B. Clarke
“No long-term safety testing for the influenza vaccine has ever been done. They are experimenting on our lives and our children. Influenza vaccine is an experimental vaccine. ” – Dr. Mark Geier, MD, PhD
“There is a great deal of evidence to prove that immunization of children does more harm than good.” – Dr. J. Anthony Morris, Former Chief Vaccine Control Officer, US FDA
“The only safe vaccine is one that is never used.” – Dr. James A. Shannon, MD, Former Director, National Institutes of Health (1955-1968)
“Belief in immunization is a form of delusional insanity.” – Dr Herbert Shelton, MD
“I don’t think measles poses any risk to a healthy child.” – Dr Jay Gordon, MD
“I sincerely believe that vaccines cause more harm to the health of the individual than the “protection” and “benefit” they are proclaimed to provide. Staying healthy without vaccines is not only possible, but being vaccine-free is the only way to maintain a lifetime of real health.” – Dr. Sherri Tenpenny, DO
“Nothing but the natural ignorance of the public, countenanced by the inoculated erroneousness of the ordinary general medical practitioners, makes such a barbarism as vaccination possible. Recent developments have shown that an inoculation made in the usual general practitioner’s light-hearted way, without previous highly skilled examination of the state of the patient’s blood, is just as likely to be a simple manslaughter as a cure or preventive. But vaccination is nothing short of attempted murder. A skilled bacteriologist would just as soon think of cutting his child’s arm and rubbing the contents of the dustpan into the wound, as vaccinating.” – George Bernard Shaw
“The more it (vaccination) is supported by public authorities, the more will its dangers and disadvantages be concealed or denied.” – M. Beddow Bayly
“One vaccine decreases cell-mediated immunity by 50%, two vaccines by 70%… all triple vaccines (MMR, DTaP) markedly impair cell-mediated immunity, which predisposes to recurrent viral infections, especially otitis media, as well as yeast and fungi infections.” – Dr H.H. Fudenberg, Immunologist
“Autism may be a disorder linked to the disruption of the G-alpha protein, affecting retinoid receptors in the brain. A study of sixty autistic children suggests that autism may be caused by inserting a G-alpha protein defect, the pertussis toxin found in the D.P.T. vaccine, into genetically at-risk children.” – Mary N. Megson, M.D.
“Probably 20% of American children -one youngster in five- suffers from ‘development disability’. This is stupefying figure we have inflicted on ourselves…’development disabilities’ are nearly always generated by encephalitis. And the primary cause of encephalitis in the USA and other industrialized countries is the childhood vaccination program. To be specific, a large proportion of millions of US children and adults suffering from autism, mental retardation, hyperactivity, dyslexia… owe their disorders to one or another of the vaccines against childhood diseases.” – Harris Coulter PhD, Author, “Vaccination, Social Violence & Criminality: The Medical Assault on the American Brain”
“Childhood diseases are a far less serious threat than having a large fraction of a generation afflicted with learning disability and/or uncontrollable aggressive behavior because of a crusade for universal vaccination…” – Association of American Physicians & Surgeons
“We look at these unvaccinated kids as bright and chipper, and they have good personalities, and they’re easy-going and easy to get along with, and we look at them like they’re just something magical. … When really that’s what normal is supposed to look like.” – Sherri Tenpenny, DO
“Recent evidence indicates that routine childhood vaccinations contribute to the emergence of chronic allergic problems such as eczema, ear infections, and asthma. A growing number of scientists and physicians maintain that most standard vaccinations permanently disturb the developing immune system, setting the stage for hypersensitive reactions to foods and other common substances. In fact, childhood illnesses such as measles, mumps, and whooping cough may actually reduce the risk of allergy.” – Konrad Kail, N.D.
“The incidence of asthma has been found to be five times more common in vaccinated children.” – The Lancet, 1994.
“Provocation polio. That is the truth about those outbreaks of polio. And I offer a well considered personal opinion that polio is a man made disease.” – Viera Scheibner, Ph.D.
“Public health regulators’ main interest is preserving the notion that vaccines help more than they harm. Anything else is blasphemous. For the rest of us, though, a recent review in immunology literature should give pause. It states: ‘To date, more than 80 systemic and organ-specific autoimmune diseases have been defined, and their cumulative burden is substantial, both medically and financially. Furthermore, the burden of autoimmune and autoinflammatory diseases is rising, making these diseases a ubiquitous global phenomenon that is predicted to further increase in the coming decades.’ An autoimmune storm is rising. The role of vaccines in it is emerging and will one day be crystal clear. The question is, how far off is that day, and who is going to pay while we wait for it?” – Celeste McGovern

The shingles vaccine fails 98-99% of the people targeted to take it. To arrive at that conclusion, one needs look only so far as the studies which Merck Pharmaceuticals trotted out for FDA when the shingles vaccine was approved in 2006.
Doctor sees Shingles Vaccine Fails
Dr. David Brownstein set out to do what most doctors should do before prescribing a vaccine to their patients. He worked to discover whether the shingles vaccine made sense for them to take. Rather than simply scan Merck’s shiny promotional brochures or peruse slick shingles vaccine television commercials (along with the rest of us), Dr. Brownstein performed a bit of cursory research, apparently a novel concept for many doctors. Novel, at least, for those who push the shingles vaccine.
Do I need the shingles vaccine?
Dr. Brownstein then wrote a letter to the American Family Physician Journal. He explained to the editor that the question, “Do I need the shingles vaccine?” was one of the most common in his practice. He wrote the letter to help others decide whether the shingles shot was a good idea.
Pity that Dr. Brownstein’s letter went unpublished by the Journal. Every doctor in the country should be made to read it. Dr. Brownstein’s letter reviewed the shingles vaccine article: Prevention of Herpes Zoster in Older Adults, by Jared Kocher, published November 1, 2016. Mr. Kocher summarized the Cochrane Review as such, “The herpes zoster (shingles) vaccine has demonstrated effectiveness in preventing shingles in older adults.”
Author Kocher stated that 50 people aged 60-69 had to be vaccinated in order to prevent one case of shingles. For those over 70, 100 had to be vaccinated in order to help just one person. Therefore, the numbers show that the shingles vaccine is ineffective for 98 of 100 people aged 60-69, and ineffective for 99/100 in those over 70, because 99 of 100 received no benefit.
“I am incredulous that anyone looking at this data could proclaim that the shingles vaccine was effective,” wrote Dr. Brownstein. “In fact, it wasn’t. According to the data, the shingles vaccine was a 98-99% failure.”
At $200 per shot, 50 people aged 60-69 would have to be vaccinated to prevent two cases of shingles, at a cost of $10,000 per case. For those over 70, 100 would need to be vaccinated to prevent one case of shingles, at a cost of $20,000. “Clearly, this vaccine is not cost effective in these tough economic times,” wrote Dr. Brownstein.
Author Kocher also summarized the adverse effect risk of the vaccine. For every 2.8 vaccines given, one person was harmed. In addition, for every one hundred people vaccinated, one had a severe adverse reaction such as rash, fever and/or hospitalization.
Beyond all sense of reason, Mr. Kocher nevertheless concludes the shingles vaccine is “safe, effective and well tolerated. . .” One needs to ask Mr. Kocher, “For whom?” The one person in 50 that it may work for?
Shingles Vaccine fails 98-99%
One would need to be mentally challenged not to see the conclusion Dr. Brownstein draws, that any conclusion regarding the subject should read that “the herpes zoster (Shingles) shingles vaccine is neither safe, effective, nor well tolerated.”
