Is Vaccine Shedding Real?

Washington, D.C., March 3, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Physicians and public health officials know that recentlyvaccinated individuals can spread disease and that contact with theimmunocompromised can be especially dangerous.  For example,the Johns Hopkins Patient Guide warns the immunocompromised to “Avoid contact with children who are recently vaccinated,” and to”Tell friends and family who are sick, or have recently had a livevaccine (such as chicken pox, measles, rubella, intranasalinfluenza, polio or smallpox) not to visit.“1

A statement on the website of St. Jude’s Hospital warns parents notto allow people to visit children undergoing cancer treatment ifthey have received oral polio or smallpox vaccines within fourweeks, have received the nasal flu vaccine within one week, or haverashes after receiving the chickenpox vaccine or MMR (measles,mumps, rubella) vaccine.2

“The public health community is blaming unvaccinated children forthe outbreak of measles at Disneyland, but the illnesses could justas easily have occurred due to contact with a recently vaccinatedindividual,” says Sally Fallon Morell, president of the Weston A.Price Foundation. The Foundation promotes a healthy diet, non-toxiclifestyle and freedom of medical choice for parents and theirchildren. “Evidence indicates that recently vaccinated individualsshould be quarantined in order to protect the public.”

Scientific evidence demonstrates that individuals vaccinatedwith live virus vaccines such as MMR (measles, mumps and rubella),rotavirus, chicken pox, shingles and influenza can shed the virusfor many weeks or months afterwards and infect the vaccinated andunvaccinated alike. 3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10.11.12

Furthermore, vaccine recipients can carry diseases in the backof their throat and infect others while displaying no symptoms of adisease.13,14,15

Both unvaccinated and vaccinated individuals are at risk fromexposure to those recently vaccinated. Vaccine failure iswidespread; vaccine-induced immunity is not permanent and recentoutbreaks of diseases such as whooping cough, mumps and measleshave occurred in fully vaccinatedpopulations.16,17 Flu vaccine recipients becomemore susceptible to future infection after repeatedvaccination.18,19

Adults have contracted polio from recently vaccinated infants. Afather from Staten Island ended up in a wheel chair aftercontracting polio while changing his daughter’s diaper.  Hereceived a 22.5 million dollar award in 2009. 20,21

“Vaccine failure and failure to acknowledge that live virusvaccines can spread disease have resulted in an increase inoutbreaks of infectious disease in both vaccinated and unvaccinatedindividuals,” says Leslie Manookian, producer of The GreaterGood. “CDC should instruct physicians who administervaccinations to inform their patients about the risks posed toothers by those who’ve been recently vaccinated.”

According to the Weston A.Price Foundation, the best protection against infectiousdisease is a healthy immune system, supported by adequate vitamin Aand vitamin C. Well-nourished children easily recover frominfectious disease and rarely suffer complications.

The number of measles deaths declined from 7575 in 1920 (10,000per year in many years in the 1910s) to an average of 432 each yearfrom 1958-1962.22 The vaccine was introduced in1963. Between 2005 and 2014, there have been no deaths from measlesin the U.S. and 108 deaths reported after the MMRvaccine.23
