MMR: More Measles Rubbish

November 28th, 2008

Jab offered over measles outbreak

More than 10,000 youngsters across Cheshire are being offered the MMR vaccine in an attempt to contain an outbreak of measles.

Health officials said there had been 62 reported cases of the illness mainly around Crewe, Sandbach and Middlewich.

The Health Protection Agency (HPA) said there had been 106 cases in the county since January.

Cheshire has the highest rate of reported measles cases in the UK outside of London in 2008.

Professor David Salisbury said: “This is the legacy. This is the milestone [sic] we carry because a decade ago we didn’t vaccinate our children because of fear over the MMR jab.”

More than 50% of cases have occurred in children of nursery and primary school age, said a HPA spokesman.

This is the milestone [sic] we carry because a decade ago we didn’t vaccinate our children because of fear over the MMR jab.


No. This is the consequence of government policy.  Consider: you are HMG, an altruistic body whose only purpose is to serve the public interest.  You know that, of measles, mumps and rubella, only measles is potentially a serious public health concern.  However, in a misguided moment you have (1) withdrawn licences to produce single vaccines against these diseases and (2) given a monopoly to a triple-jab, MMR, despite this seeming to go against your stated aim of allowing patient choice.   For whatever reason, confidence in MMR decreases and the incidence of measles increases. Since you are an altruistic body whose only purpose is to serve the public interest, you wish to protect the nations children against measles.

Do you:

(a) rapidly re-introduce single vaccines for those children whose parents who prefer them, leading to increased uptake, increased protection and removing any question of dereliction of duty, or…

(b) blame the media for anti-MMR hysteria, blame parents for being paranoid and attempt to induce a compulsion to vaccinate by MMR through fear-mongering, while refusing to change policy on single vaccines and sneering ‘told you so’ as children are hospitalised by measles.

Listen to Prof David Salisbury in this article:

Measles cases reach 13-year high

Hear him blame parents for not taking up MMR. Hear him acknowledge he has been worrying about a measles epidemic for “a considerable period of time”.

But what has he done? Nothing. He is useless. Worse than useless, he is perpetuating the problem. He will not propose single vaccines, but repeatedly says it is up to parents to give children MMR, or else it’s their fault when measles increases. He is no longer acting as a physician, but as a political puppet acting in the interests of… well, who knows? BigPharma? HMG? Certainly not you, the people, who pay his wages.

Some information on single vaccines is here.

In a sneaky move, BBQ have been utilised to further fear-moger against single vaccines and for MMR.

Single vaccine ‘safety’ warnings

So, after several paragraphs suggesting your child may die due to anaphylaxis if you give it single vaccines and not the MMR we get:

Study leader Dr Mich Lajeunesse, a consultant in paediatric allergy in Southampton, said: “It is so unusual that if you saw one case of anaphylaxis to vaccines you would be surprised.

We can’t think of any reason why it would be higher for single vaccines and it’s probably an anomaly.

The data are extrapolated from estimates because single vaccinations are essentially unregulated because… government policy does not allow your GP to administer them!!!

So HMG have not only watched as your risk of measles increased and refuse to do anything about it, but may also be increasing your risk of side effects from single vaccines because these vaccines can now only be given by unmonitored clinics.

What a farce!

    A sample of the public view on MMR and vaccination. Many people appear to have been vaccinated against independent thought.

    MMR does not cause autism. I have a child who is autistic and have met many people with autistic children and it is quite clear even when the parent blames the jab that it is not the jab but they use it as a crutch to cope with the trauma of having a disabled child. Parents who do not immunise their children are ignorant arrogant media sheep who put their false ideals ahead of the protection of their and other people’s children and esp babies who cannot be immunised until they are one! Selfish!

    Parents should be allowed to choose from the single MMR to multiple jabs.
    Surely not allowing this is an erosion of their Human Rights?
    The right to choose…

    Another consumerism obsessed parent. Do you have a degree in immunology and public health? “Choosing” which vaccines your kid gets ins’t like pizza toppings. Single vaccines are not safer, and probably more hazardous. Just let healthcare professionals do their job!

    It’s nothing to worry about really. It’s like a Darwin award. All those parents thick enough to believe that rubbish about MMR & Autism are running the risk of having their equally thick kids naturally selected out of the gene pool.

    Bonus for us!

    The belief that MMR causes autism is no more evidence based than the belief that forwarding “email angels” will bring good luck. It belongs on Snopes like the rest of the ignorant, superstitious, nonsense around. Sadly, this particular popular fairy tale is far from innocuous. Measles kills. It blinds, deafens, damages brains. Thanks to these selfish people, children who are unable to be vaccinated (eg those suffering from leukaemia) are no longer protected by “herd immunity” and may die.

    If a parent refuses to vaccinate their child, and that child in the next 15 years of its life contracts one of the diseases and suffers from an injury the parents should be charged with GBH. If the child dies they should be charged with manslaughter.

    That ‘naturally selected out’ quote is the best. It is THAT BASTARDS child that has been ‘naturally selected out’ by being pumped full of vaccines!
