Chickenpox jab should be added to MMR, scientists say
Thursday November 8, 2007
All children should be vaccinated against chickenpox while receiving the controversial measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) jabs, scientists said today.
Only universal vaccination against chickenpox would prevent the severe complications – including, in a few cases, death – suffered by around 100 children a year who contract the disease, according to the study published in the Archives of Childhood Diseases.
Tens of millions get chicken pox every year without serious complications, after which they have life long immunity. This vaccine is another sheep shearing operation. But you know this.
The study found 112 cases over 13 months where children suffered severe complications, which required hospital treatment for conditions such as pneumonia, blood poisoning, encephalitis, ataxia (loss of control of limbs), toxic shock and the flesh-eating bug necrotising fasciitis.
All of this is irrelevant, and also, of these people were given oral Zovirax, the symptoms would have been completely suppressed and they would have lived.
Five of the children died, although four had pre-existing medical conditions – including one case of HIV.
You see? Lies!
But the study noted that these high-risk children were not currently targeted for immunisation. An unborn baby also died in the womb during the study period.
I personally know a woman who had never contracted chicken pox, but who was pregnant. She also had other children who were attending a school where someone had chicken pox. She contracted it, and was given a big bottle of Zovirax tablets to take regularly in case she started to show symptoms. She did, and she took the Zovirax as instructed. Not only did she never develop a fever of any kind, but all the symptoms of the Chicken pox were so suppressed that you would not have known that she was even suffering from it.
The baby was born full term, absolutely normal.
THAT is the way you take care of serious cases of Chickenpox. You do NOT need to vaccinate against it!
An editorial in the Archives of Childhood Diseases proposes adding a vaccine for chickenpox to the MMR jab.
But the authors acknowledged that ongoing public anxiety about MMR – despite no scientific evidence that it is unsafe – would make it difficult to add another vaccine to the existing triple jab.
and of course, it is not needed at all, as chicken pox is a nuisance and not a serious threat.
As an alternative, they suggested that the vaccine could be offered to all teenagers who were not infected as children to prevent severe complications in adults and pregnant women.
Better yet, offer them Zovirax to suppress the symptoms and let them have an easy time of it. Far less dangerous, in fact, so harmless is Zovirax that you can give it to a PREGNANT WOMAN and there are no side effects.
Routine immunisation for chickenpox is currently only offered in the UK to healthcare workers and others who are at risk of contracting the illness or passing it on.
If you have already had Chickenpox, the vaccine is useless. The only way to do that properly is to test for immunity then and ONLY then vaccinate, either by natural contraction or by noxious concoction.
But the US, Canada, Australia and Finland have already introduced vaccination programmes for children.
only to face fierce resistance.
The government announced in September it was considering vaccinating children against chickenpox, following a recommendation by the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation.
Professor Adam Finn, a co-author of both the editorial and the report, said: “Chickenpox has traditionally been viewed as an irritating but inevitable infection to be endured during childhood, a rite of passage during the preschool years.
“This benign view persists despite evidence that certain groups, including neonates, adults, pregnant women, and the immunocompromised have higher risks of severe disease.”
These groups can all be treated without vaccinations, and there is no reason why the ENTIRE POPULATION should be exposed to this threat because a very small number of people who are vulnerable MIGHT have complications from it.
That is why when there is a chickenpox party in your town, you need to get your children there so that they can catch it, acquire immunity, and then get it over with. That is called ‘good parenting’.
The study, Severe Complications of Chickenpox in Hospitalised Children in the UK and Ireland, found that 40% of the children studied had ongoing problems, most commonly ataxia or skin scarring.
The scarring can be prevented with Zovirax which stops the pox from popping up.
Most of the children were healthy before they contracted chickenpox, so would have been able to be immunised if a vaccine was available, said the researchers.
And they would have been able to fight it off with the help of that very cool drug.
It concluded: “We did not identify any additional high-risk groups that could be candidates for selective immunisation.
“Universal vaccination would therefore be the only realistic option to prevent severe complications and deaths, as few, if any, could be identified as potentially preventable under current UK policy.”
This is completely backwards logic. It is the logic of big business, of cattle herding. It is pure evil.
The authors said chickenpox rates were rising in pre-school children and for every 1,000 cases, between two and five children would be hospitalised.
The report acknowledged that immunising children might mean a greater number of elderly people developed shingles as the level of immunity waned.
Even if you vaccinate, because it is not as good as getting real immunity from the disease itself, later down the line, there is going to be more suffering, and I am told that shingles is really REALLY painful and terrible.
But it said a further vaccination might reduce this risk.
does this mean another round after the childhood round?!
People who have had chickenpox can later develop shingles as the virus stays within the body.
But those who have had chickenpox cannot catch shingles from someone else, unlike those who never contracted chickenpox as children.
So if chickenpox was eradicated, then shingles would also be eradicated.
If only we could trust the motives of these people!
Sadly we cannot, and chickenpox is a small price to pay for not being rendered autistic for life by a vaccination.
‘The man who knows this stuff’ has already instructed us all about this previously.
