Efficacy and Effectiveness
Here, we clearly delineate the term “efficacy” from “effectiveness.” Efficacy is defined as “the power to bring about a desired result” and medical authorities have previously established an association for this term. To them, the “result” indicates either “a decrease in the circulation of a particular bacteria or virus” or “the production of antibodies.”
Instead, we have gathered documentation indicating that vaccines are not “effective.” In relation to the subject of vaccination, WAVE uses the term “effective,” in a broader sense, meaning both “not preventing disease” and also “not producing an overall healthful effect on humanity.”
History Shows Vaccination Had Little Effect
Examine the evidence for yourself. Vaccines contributed little to the eradication of diseases like smallpox, tetanus or polio. Ask yourself which vaccine it was that eradicated scarlet fever or the plague. There were no vaccines yet and they waned just the same. Medicine was quick to cry victory over diseases like small pox, tetanus and polio but they were all well on their way out when vaccines were introduced. One could just as easily take credit for dropping the ocean’s receding tide by bailing buckets of water out it. History demonstrates that it was improvements in hygeine, sanitation, nutrition, standards of living, and water and food supply that lead to the decline of most infectious disease.
Antibodies Do NOT Mean Immunity
Drug companies conduct (their own) studies and determine effectiveness by merely measuring antibody response. This is purely an isolated technical feat and does not mean, by any measure, that a person is necessarily immune to a disease at all. Many people contract diseases they had produced antibodies against. For example, in one study, 87 subjects with naturally acquired immunity to Rubella, antibodies were not found. But in 39 our of 65 vaccinated subjects who had contracted rubella, antibodies were found. Antibody titers cannot be relied upon for proper scientific evaluation yet this is the standard method for vaccine “efficacy”.
Other Faulty Methods
Described in the Federal Register, the pertussis vaccine was evaluated for potency by injection into mice, even though animal test results often to not apply to human physiology. The mice were observed for fourteen days only and “mice dying within 72 hours after challenge shall be excluded from the test” and “all mice that show both paralysis and enlargement (of the head) shall be considered as deaths for the purpose of determining the ED 50.”
Disease is Good
It may take some getting used to becasue we’ve all been sold on faring germs and disease, but the idea that diseases are good for you is scientifically sound. Many Febrile Infectious Childhood Diseases (FICD’s) are found to impart protection from more serious adult diseases like diabetes, asthma, allergies, and cancers. We are meant to process these germs and prime and mature our immune systems.
Public health officials say at least 28 cases of mumps are confirmed in an outbreak at The Ohio State University. Eighteen students and a staff member are among those infected.
It’s unclear whether all the patients were unvaccinated, but Ohio state law and the university do not require the MMR vaccine for entry into college, he added.
To date, the illnesses have occurred from Feb. 11 to March 12 of this year. The confirmed cases involve 11 women and 12 men. They range in age from 18 to 48, and include 23 students, one faculty member, a relative of a student
For over four years now I have been researching how this vaccine works. I have wondered why did they use the ingredients that they did and what repercussions that they could have on the body. The other reason is that I wanted to find out WHY THESE VACCINES CAUSE SO MUCH HARM! I have also discovered that it is not necessarily the HPV VLP recombinant DNA as being the culprit in this cocktail because between the carrier solution and the vaccine there is only approx. 3.0% difference. I am now more prone to believe that
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
Adacel vaccine is indicated for active booster immunization for the prevention of tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis as a single dose in persons 11 through 64 years of age.
The most common local and systemic adverse reactions to Adacel vaccine include injection site pain, erythema, and swelling; headache, body ache, tiredness, and fever. Other adverse reactions may occur. A severe allergic reaction after a previous dose of Adacel vaccine or any other tetanus toxoid, diphtheria toxoid or pertussis containing vaccine, or to any component, or encephalopathy within 7 days of a previous dose of a pertussis containing vaccine,
“Two children have died from the epidemic strain of meningococcal disease – a revelation that comes just a day after health officials released figures showing the $222 million vaccination programme’s success. The death of a Waikato toddler is the first fatality of someone fully immunized against the epidemic B strain.”

“The authors point out that the first generation HIV vaccines are likely to be very expensive and not very effective, lowering the chances of widespread use. “Furthermore, the stigma associated with HIV/AIDS, if not adequately addressed, may lower demand for a vaccine.” While targeting high-risk groups seems the more realistic strategy, the authors say the research done so far has not yielded much information about demand for and uptake of vaccines in the groups most likely to benefit from them, such as commercial sex workers and intravenous drug users.”
“In 1995 it was 2000, in 2000 it was 2001, and then it was shifted to 2005 — the years regarded as the deadline for the complete eradication of polio from India. But today, in 2006, India has reported a year-to-date total of 155 polio cases .. Furthermore, 27 batches used in western Uttar Pradesh districts were also 100 percent satisfactory. The vaccine can be rendered ineffective by storing it below the recommended temperature.”

“CONCLUSIONS: Children who experience Hib disease despite vaccination appear to have a defect in immunological priming, leading to a qualitative difference in Hib-specific memory B cells.”
“More than 2,500 patients at a Lincolnshire GP surgery received flu, travel or childhood vaccines which may not have worked. A routine check at the Littlebury Surgery in Holbeach found vaccines were not stored at the right temperature. This can make some of them ineffective, and patients are being asked to go back for another vaccine.”

“The trials of HPV vaccine did not include a large enough number of girls age 11 and 12 for whom the vaccine is recommended. Because of this, the trial results including efficacy and safety may not be applicable to the age group of girls.”

“CDC lead researcher Elizabeth Luman, PhD, tells Medline Plus that many children that are vaccinated received their shots too early or too close together which make it not effective.”

“The official explanation by the CDC may be only part of the story. In an article published in 2004 by the Center for Medical Consumers, which is a not-for-profit organization that does not accept any funding from the drug industry, Maryann Napoli, the staff writer for the Center, explains why flu vaccine is rarely effective… But what is not as commonly known is that the vaccine is more likely to be effective against the type that causes fewer than 15 percent of all flu cases. .. Vaccine researcher Tom Jefferson, MD, was quoted in Napoli’s article as saying “The
“In a study reported in last week’s New England Journal of Medicine, researchers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and several Midwestern state health departments examined the 6,584 cases in the Midwestern outbreak. They found that the incidence was four times higher among people 18 to 24 years old than in all other age groups combined. This was despite the fact that 84% of the mumps patients in that age group (and 63% of the patients overall) had received the recommended two doses of mumps vaccine.”
“Their own evidence released today shows quite clearly that the vaccine had no impact at all,” says Ron Law, a risk and policy analyst. “And in fact if you look at the deaths which they haven’t released, the deaths from meningococcal remain static ever since the campaign was introduced.”

“A large mumps outbreak in the United States in 2006 may have been caused by the failure of the vaccine, federal health experts reported Wednesday. In a study reported in the April 10 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine, authors urge a more effective mumps vaccine or changes in vaccine policy to eradicate the disease. ”

“But experts said, though most children have been repeatedly vaccinated, polio-related paralysis has been on the rise. ”Children are getting more than 25 doses. There are studies to show that in malnourished children, the vaccine can be fatal. It actually causes paralysis, so it is contraindicated in undernourished population,” said Sathyamala, Epidemiologist.”

“A new study says that most college students sickened during a 2006 mumps outbreak had been vaccinated against the disease. The study raises questions about whether another booster shot is needed – or perhaps even a new vaccine. ”

“There are vaccinations that are available today that I did not take as a child. I risked it and got Chicken Pox at age 10 and since then, I have not had a recurring bout with the disease. But today, the Chicken Pox vaccine is available. The moderate to severe side effects include seizures and pneumonia. Getting the Chicken Pox is annoying at best. But it isn’t life threatening. The side effects from the vaccine are…. Many parents think that child immunizations are normal, that they will protect their child from various diseases. WRONG! If anything, the shots will
“The inquiry – chaired by Dr Iain Anderson who also led the inquiry into the 2001 outbreak – described the initial leak of the virus from a fractured drain in the Pirbright facilities as “an avoidable event … that should never have happened.””
