Before the MMR vaccine came out in the late 1960’s it was very common for people to experience mumps, measles, or rubella and it was considered a non event–a few days off school, some bed rest, and an exaggerated story of how just bad it was to tell your friends when you return to school. This was a normal part of life for everyone pre MMR vaccine and complications seldom happened except when there was an underlying condition such as malnutrition.
When the MMR vaccine came out the public was told that one dose would magically protect children from ever catching mumps, measles, or rubella. This seemed to hold true until the 1980s where suddenly there were outbreaks of measles among the fully vaccinated.
The pharmaceutical industry with full backing of the CDC began to lobby states to mandate a second dose of the MMR for anyone entering school or college. In 2015 Dr Richard Pan used a minor measles outbreak at Disneyland to sponsor and ultimately get SB 277 passed into law that removed California’s philosophical exemption to vaccines leaving only the medical exemption in place. Now in 2017 the same tactics are being used to promote (mandate) a third dose of the MMR because of a mumps outbreak on college campuses.
Social media has become the new tool to claim that all of these mumps outbreaks are coming from the unvaccinated and from immigrants. The United States has long had a policy of forced vaccination when it comes to immigration which for the most part is not public knowledge. Pro vaxers play on this lack of knowledge to stir up a mass hysteria that people from outside the United States are spreading disease and that a strict mandated vaccine policy is the only hope for survival. This is the same tactic used with anyone who questions vaccines, such people are unfairly looked upon with suspicion, judgment, and even hate from the pubic as a whole. THIS IS BY DESIGN!!! The vaccine industry would not survive if they did not emotionally manipulate and play on the fears of the public. How could they sell vaccines to a public that is not fearful and aware of just how dangerous vaccines really are??? The answer is they couldn’t!
All of us need to be aware of what is happening and we need to speak up now before the third MMR becomes an official mandate. On college campuses across the United States a third dose of the MMR is being offered with many students unaware that this third dose is not a requirement to attend class. Non vaccinated students are being unfairly barred from class but are told that they can return to class if they agree to being vaccinated.
The Washington Post this week made it clear that the mumps is being spread among the fully vaccinated and that health officials are looking at the possibility of mandating a third dose of the MMR. Mona Marin an infectios disease expert with the CDC made it clear that the mumps component of the MMR is only about 88% effective. Her statement to th Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices is that “Although the disease has not been serious, the disruption and expense it has caused for local and state health officials has been significant.”
Notice how the focus is on the supposed expense of treating the illness rather than what kind of health impact it has on the person who has it? The Washington Post also let it slip (in an attempt to push the vaccine) that complications from mumps has been exceedingly rare. “Even with the large number of cases, the incidence of severe complications has been dramatically reduced, especially among vaccinated children and adults, he said. There have been only 17 cases of orchitis, or inflammation of the testicles, for example, instead of the 700 to 800 cases that would have likely occurred without vaccination.”
Outbreaks of mumps, measles, and other childhood illnesses are a normal part of nature and happened every few years before vaccines disrupted this cycle. Now lawmakers use such outbreaks to promote fear and mandate additional doses of vaccines that have been proven failures with previous doses. When will all of this pro vax madness madness end? I am not sure but I do know that natural infection is the ONLY way to become immune to the mumps. Seek out the childhood illnesses, have them, become immune!
