If vaccine derived herd immunity were a realistic and proven theory; then there would be some scientific evidence behind it. After reviewing numerous studies that were claimed to represent and show the vaccinederived herd immunity theory to have a scientific basis; I conclude that there is NO scientific backing for the claim. Correlation equals causation, simply can not and should not be applied only where it benefits the intended promotional agenda, and then at the same time the same principal is disregarded, where it does not produce a conclusion favorable to the intended and thus promoted agenda. You can not have it both ways, and not lose major credibility, as to the level of existing bias.
What we can find is the backing for is the premise of natural herd immunity, because the majority of those thus becoming immune, have life long immunity. Any even 3rd grade science student, could comprehend the obvious validity of that basic concept.
The huge hole in the obviously incorrect concept of vaccine derived herd immunity, is exactly this. Vaccines do no provide increased vaccine derived antibody production, for life. Vaccines only provide relatively passive immunity, if and when they provide protection at all; and providing as well that over time the targeted pathogen has not mutated or changed to a point that the vaccine has become increasingly ineffective. This is what is happening currently in regard to the pertussis vaccine. As well in the use of the DPaT or whatever vaccine in the past was or currently is; other similar pathogens tend to because of the vaccine, as well become more commonly seen, dominant; and at times even more virulent. In regard to the known and current pertussis outbreaks, that non vaccine targeted pathogen is B.parapertusis; with B. pertussis of course being the existing vaccine targeted pathogen.
The second phase as to the understanding of why vaccine derived herd immunity is a myth, is to realize that thousands and if not millions of adults exist with having had no vaccines in decades. What are the odds that their childhood vaccines still protect them from polio, small pox, pertussis, diphtheria, measles, rubella, etc??? Agreed, there is a big push in the recent past to give tetanus boosters to adults, which often includes the entire, DTaP. But think of all the decades that have gone by where the ONLY people in that vaccinated herd, were the infants, and school children. In the recent past more of the CDC directive has gone to vaccination boosters for teens and college students, for certain, but limited numbers of vaccines.
In the extensive time I have researched vaccines, I find and conclude that we have been mislead and lied to about the safety and effectiveness of vaccines, for the past 100 years. The balance in any medical procedure, treatment, and as well as to vaccines is exactly this; at what point is more harm than good being done???? If you do not know the real facts truth; and/or if those have been hidden from the pubic, and/ or covered up; then how would you know when and where the balance between more harm than good is being done?
In any case, the pro-vaccine side always claims that they are, and have always been about the science, and the scientific method, and that to back their vaccine claims. They do this, even all the while in which at the same time the CDC refuses to acknowledge the bulwark of existing scientific evidence, as to the harm of vaccines; as well as to the vaccine connection to the current major increases in cases of ASD.
The existing so called authorities lie to the public, and falsely present with their repeated claim that the science showing the vaccine caused neurological harm and as well in regard to the causation of ASD, that the science simply does not exist to support that claim. Nothing, could be further from the truth. The real science has existed front and center, the whole time. If the CDC does no acknowledge the scientific study; in their world it simply is non existent. If the science does not support the vaccine agenda, as for the CDC; it does not exist. With the current numbers of ASD at now said 1 in 88; should NOT the CDC be looking at all of the available science, and following up with further larger scale studies? There is stated large amounts of funding available, however they refuse to look at anything but genetics, and anything other than vaccines. Anything they can blame it all on, but vaccines. They are in as well, quite obvious deep denial of all. They at they CDC quite obviously have everything to lose, if the truth be known; and with no way to further make any denial of it all.
That vaccine-induced herd immunity is mostly myth can be proven quite simply. When I was in medical school, we were taught that all of the childhood vaccines lasted a lifetime. This thinking existed for over 70 years. It was not until relatively recently that it was discovered that most of these vaccines lost their effectiveness 2 to 10 years after being given. What this means is that at least half the population, that is the baby boomers, have had no vaccine-induced immunity against any of these diseases for which they had been vaccinated very early in life. In essence, at least 50% or more of the population was unprotected for decades.
If we listen to present-day wisdom, we are all at risk of resurgent massive epidemics should the vaccination rate fall below 95%. Yet, we have all lived for at least 30 to 40 years with 50% or less of the population having vaccine protection. That is, herd immunity has not existed in this country for many decades and no resurgent epidemics have occurred. Vaccine-induced herd immunity is a lie used to frighten doctors, public-health officials, other medical personnel, and the public into accepting vaccinations.
When we examine the scientific literature, we find that for many of the vaccines protective immunity was 30 to 40%, meaning that 70% to 60% of the public has been without vaccine protection. Again, this would mean that with a 30% to 40% vaccine-effectiveness rate combined with the fact that most people lost their immune protection within 2 to 10 year of being vaccinated, most of us were without the magical 95% number needed for herd immunity. This is why vaccine defenders insist the vaccines have 95% effectiveness rates.
Without the mantra of herd immunity, these public-health officials would not be able to justify forced mass vaccinations. I usually give the physicians who question my statement that herd immunity is a myth a simple example. When I was a medical student almost 40 years ago, it was taught that the tetanus vaccine would last a lifetime. Then 30 years after it had been mandated, we discovered that its protection lasted no more than 10 years. Then, I ask my doubting physician if he or she has ever seen a case of tetanus? Most have not. I then tell them to look at the yearly data on tetanus infections – one sees no rise in tetanus cases. The same can be said for measles, mumps, and other childhood infections. It was, and still is, all a myth.
