The New York City Mayor has imposed an order declaring that all residents of a Brooklyn neighborhood undergo mandatory vaccinations or else pay a steep fine. Despite the majority of the neighborhood being vaccinated, broad generalizations from officials are blaming the outbreak on the unvaccinated.
It started with California senate bill 277 as a trial to test compliance and now many states are following suit to enforce mandatory vaccinations based on inconclusive evidence that the unvaccinated are spreading disease.
New York City has recently declared a public health emergency over a measles outbreak and ordered mandatory vaccinations as “necessary” for all residents to address the measles “crisis” in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg community, a neighborhood of more than 250 ultra-Orthodox Jewish residents.
“The declaration requires all unvaccinated people who may have been exposed to the virus to get the vaccine, including children over 6 months old,” reports the Associated Press.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio stated anyone in these areas must receive the measles vaccine, including children over 6 months old, or face a fine of up to $1,000.
Get the measles vaccine, and you won’t get the measles–or give it to anyone else. Right? Yet in the spring of 2014, also in New York, a person who was vaccinated against measles contracted the disease and passed it on to others. A fully vaccinated 22-year-old theater employee in New York City who developed measles was released without hospitalization or quarantine.
Ultimately, she transmitted the measles to four other people, according to a recent report in Clinical Infectious Diseases that tracked symptoms in the 88 people with whom “Measles Mary” interacted while she was sick. Surprisingly, two of the secondary patients had been fully vaccinated. And although the other two had no record of receiving the vaccine, they both showed signs of previous measles exposure that should have conferred immunity.
The medical community, epidemiologists, infectious disease specialists and biostatisticians have all stated the science is clear. However, the evidence suggests otherwise. The science is not clear. Vaccines DO NOT protect children against infectious disease and vaccination (which is not immunization) has no benefit to protect any type of community.
Not only are public health entities habitually and deliberately failing to inform the public of their right to refuse vaccines in both school and work settings, but they are working towards mandatory vaccination protocols which will allow officials to conduct childhood vaccinations without any parental consent at all.
There are opinions now held by many in high levels of public health agencies and government which may soon translate into laws requiring mandatory enforcement of vaccination and the elimination of vaccine exemptions.
State legislatures are now dealing with a rash of legislation to tighten vaccination rules in reaction to the targeted media attack against the anti-vaccination movement that started with the coordinated Disneyland measles outbreak. The media outcry was designed to focus on parents who choose not to vaccinate their children. With Disneyland scare, it’s now been established at least half of the Disneyland children who allegedly caught measles WERE vaccinated.
The message is clear: any parents who might have genuine personal and family health concerns regarding risky vaccines, are “putting the public safety at risk and therefore must comply”. In the wake of this crisis, US media are currently promoting a new class of laws that will eliminate a parent and student’s ability to obtain a ‘waiver’ for mandatory vaccinations. In other words, if you do not get all the vaccines which the state demands, then you will be breaking the law.
The phenomenon of measles infection spread by MMR (live measles-mumps-rubella vaccine) has been known for decades. In fact, 20 years ago, scientists working at the CDC’s National Center for Infectious Diseases, funded by the WHO and the National Vaccine Program, discovered something truly disturbing about the MMR vaccine: it leads to detectable measles infection in the vast majority of those who receive it.
