Vax Sux Again

We shared information concerning the 2006 Iowa Mumps outbreak among highly vaccinated college kids. The 87% MMR failure which led over 1,400 cases of Mumps concluded with name-calling the worthless three live viruses in one shot the M?R.

Perhaps we have arrived at time appropriate enough for a new handle, the ??R vaccine.

Even though this case study report discovered recently covers just the isolated first M in MMR, er...??R it is important to remember all vaccines work the same way.

Now it seems a certain hospital did a two-year records audit looking for cases of Measles infection in children.

Over the two years 2006-7 the hospital saw more than 23,000 plus patients. Of that, 70 children(0.03%)were found to have been admitted most likely all suffering from Measles infection based on a maculopapular rash with cough or coryza or conjunctivitis, or clinical measles infection with presence of measles specific IgM antibodies in serum.

Most interesting was the fact that just 29% had Koplik spots, which are pathognomic of Measles.

Fever was present in 100% of the cases and rash in 86%. Coryza, or inflammation of the mucus membranes lining of the nasal cavity, was seen in 71% and conjunctivitis, also known as pink eye, was seen in 67% of the children.

Measles specific IgM antibodies by ELISA was done in 42(60%)cases of which 16(23%) were positive, and there was a clustering of cases between the months of January and June.

Fifteen children (22%) were less than one year old, unavoidable cases too young to Measles vaccinate.

Twenty-four children (34%) were between one and five years old, twenty-three children (33%) were between five and ten years old, and eight children (11%) were ten years old or older.

Seventy-eight percent of all 70 children attacked by the Measles and admitted to this particular hospital during this time period were Measles vaccinated. The children were treated conservatively. Zero cases of mortality.

I do recall a certain Mr. Offit, who claims every child by two has an immune system that can handle 100,000 vaccines. It is odd that antibody testing right in the middle of an immune system challenge revealed bug busting potential in just 16 of 42 children.
