Back to School – Preventing Vaccine Bullying

Original here: https://www.nvic.org/NVIC-Vaccine-News/July-2018/back-to-school-prevent-vaccine-bullying.aspx

Theresa K. Wrangham, Executive Director

It’s July and many parents and college students are receiving their enrollment packages for the upcoming academic year. Families are also making new daycare decisions, or renewing daycare agreements.

As a parent, I have filled out my share of school enrollment packages and then mentored my adult children so that they could make their own decisions during the college enrollment process and beyond. I’ve both seen and experienced vaccine bullying, and I know first hand the importance of understanding vaccine policies and laws that govern the enrollment process.

This article provides timely vaccine resource information to assist our readers during enrollment and to prevent families and adults from being bullied into making vaccine decisions that do not align with their values and beliefs.

School Vaccine Requirements & Exemptions

NVIC receives numerous inquiries every year about school vaccine requirements and exemptions. School vaccine mandates (requirements) and exemptions vary from state to state because they are determined by each state’s legislature. You will need to understand the laws of your specific state.

State law also dictates how often school vaccine paperwork must be submitted, to whom that paperwork is submitted, as well as how personal vaccine information is shared with a state’s immunization information system (IIS), more commonly known as a vaccine registry.

State vaccine laws can also vary on which settings the law applies to, such as day care, K-12, and college, as well as whether or not the law applies to private schools. In Colorado, for example, the school vaccine law applies to day care facilities and private schools. Understanding how your state’s vaccine laws apply to a specific setting is helpful when completing enrollment documents.

Vaccine Requirements vs. Recommendations

Sadly, one of the stories often shared by parents with NVIC is that they have been incorrectly told by a school official, health care professional, or day care professional that all vaccines on the CDC’s recommended childhood schedule are required for enrollment. Exemption information is often not disclosed in these conversations.

While there are some states and private institutions that do require all federally recommended vaccines as a condition of enrollment, the majority of states require fewer vaccines than the 69 doses recommended by the CDC from birth to age 18. Additionally, most states offer varying degrees of vaccine exemptions. NVIC provides an overview of the difference between a vaccine requirement and a vaccine recommendation that many readers have found helpful as they navigate school and day care enrollment requirements.

Bang: another China vaccine scandal

Original here: https://jonrappoport.wordpress.com/2018/07/23/bang-another-china-vaccine-scandal/

by Jon Rappoport

Reuters: “The Food and Drug Administration said in a statement on Sunday evening that its investigation had found that Changsheng fabricates [vaccine] production records and product inspection records, and arbitrarily changes process parameters and equipment, ‘serious violations’ of the law.”

Tainted products from China? Who ever heard of such a thing? Isn’t China the most quality-conscious nation on the planet? No?

Here’s a headline on this story from fiercepharma.com (7/17): “Top Chinese rabies vaccine maker ordered to stop production over forged data.” Oops.

Fiercepharma: “China’s drug regulator just pulled a manufacturing permit for the country’s second-largest maker of rabies vaccines over data falsification, marking the latest episode in China’s drug safety scandal.”

“During an inspection, China’s State Drug Administration found Changchun Changsheng Life Sciences forged production records for its Vero cell-based rabies vaccines. The agency immediately moved to revoke the company’s GMP license tied to the vaccine—just three months after its issuance—and dispatched a team to investigate the incident on site, according to a Sunday statement…”

“In its announcement filed to Shenzhen Stock Exchange, the Changchun, China-based company said it has started recalling all unexpired rabies vaccines, even though the batches under question weren’t released to the market, and it hasn’t received any adverse event report related to the quality of the vaccines through years of monitoring.”

“Changsheng’s recent scandal comes eight months after a batch, or 252,600 doses, of its diphtheria/tetanus/pertussis (DTP) combo shot was found below the potency requirement. It also comes shortly after the company became one of the first two companies to get Chinese approvals for quadrivalent flu vaccines.”

“Besides rabies, DTP and flu vaccines, Changsheng also sells vaccines against chickenpox, hepatitis A and group ACYW meningococcal. A small proportion of its business comes from abroad, including India, Cambodia, Egypt and Belarus, among others. It’s not yet clear whether it sells its rabies vaccines outside of China.”

CNBC drops this bomb: “It [the current China vaccine scandal] is very much a case of deja vu. China’s pharmaceutical industry has been exposed to a slew of scandals recently. Zhejiang Huahai Pharmaceutical, a Shanghai-listed drug maker, found a toxic impurity called N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) in ingredients it exports to medicines for treating hypertension in laboratory tests. The substance, a by-product of industrial processes, is toxic to the liver and classified as a carcinogen for its ability to cause cancer in humans.”

I issued an extensive warning about China pharma in 2017.

BREAKING: US Health And Human Services Can’t Find 32 Years Of Vaccine Safety Research

ORIGINAL HERE: https://www.jeffereyjaxen.com/blog/breaking-us-health-and-human-services-cant-find-32-years-of-vaccine-safety-research

The 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act started the process to fully absolve pharmaceutical companies from liability for the injuries and deaths their vaccine products cause. In addition, the 1986 Act also removed the normal market forces and legal repercussions which exist to ensure safer vaccine products. By giving economic immunity to Big Pharma, it removed any incentive for those companies to maintain, improve on and guarantee the safety of their vaccines.

Instead, the 1986 Act put the US Health and Human Services (HHS) in charge of doing continued safety and quality monitoring of the vaccines comprising America’s recommended vaccine schedule. HHS was tasked with two jobs:, to end infectious disease and to reduce the risk of vaccine injury. Specifically, the 1986 Act states in subsection a, that HHS shall:

promote the development of childhood vaccines that result in fewer and less serious adverse reactions than those vaccines on the market…” and to “make or assure improvements in…the manufacturing, testing, warning, field surveillance, adverse reaction reporting and researching on vaccines in order to reduce the risk of adverse reactions to vaccines.”

There was also a deadline for HHS to adhere to when applying the above mandated criteria. The 1986 Act states:

Within 2 years after December 22, 1987, and periodically thereafter, the Secretary shall prepare and transmit…a report describing the actions taken pursuant to subsection a…

Last year, the Informed Consent Action Network (ICAN) sent a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to HHS asking for any documents related to the work done by HHS pursuant to the mandate laid out in the 1986 Act. In short, the FOIA request asked for any reports HHS has given the US Congress over the last 32 years that show they are making vaccines safer. After HHS was unable to produce the requested documents, ICAN, along with Robert F. Kennedy Jr., filed a lawsuit. The lawsuit gave HHS three options:

  1. To give all the information as requested in the original FOIA request
  2. To give a credible explanation why HHS can’t disclose the information; or
  3. To admit HHS doesn’t have any documents which would show they have done what they were tasked to do

Vaccine Rights Attorney Mails Notice Of Bar Misconduct To 30,000+ NC Attorneys

Original here: https://mailchi.mp/vaccinerights/nc-bar-persecution-of-vaccine-rights-attorney-update

For more information: http://www.vaccinerights.com

Last Sunday, I sent an email notice from my new non-profit corporation, Bar Watch, Inc., to over 30,000 active and inactive North Carolina attorneys, alerting them to the claim that NC State Bar attorneys have engaged in deliberate misconduct, including inventing facts to discipline innocent attorneys, like they have done with me. The notice included a link to a Bar Counsel Letter with a short analysis, which you have got to see if you haven’t yet seen it yet! This short, 1-paragraph letter from the NC Bar’s top attorney has, on its face, multiple ethical violations. If this doesn’t scream “problems in the NC Bar,” nothing ever will! See it HERE. Anyway, within 20 minutes of the 7:00 am e-mail to NC attorneys, I was contacted by another NC attorney with a “State Bar made up facts to use against me” story–similar to my experience–and this attorney had the same Bar investigator that I did! So, his story was credible. The NC State Bar’s abuse of me is not an isolated case!

Meanwhile, I’ve heard that many people phoned the NC State Bar about this matter, so the NC Bar knows that there are a lot of people concerned about the false attack against me. That may be a good thing, as it puts the Bar on notice that they are under national scrutiny. (Please note that in NC, unlike some other states, the NC Bar Association is completely separate from the NC State Bar. The State Bar is the state agency that licenses NC attorneys, while NC Bar Association is an organization that NC attorneys don’t have to join, though it offers some good services to those who do join.)

Finally, petition signatures and donations continue to steadily grow, and I am deeply humbled and extremely grateful. Many thanks to ALL of you who have offered prayers and moral support, have helped to spread the word, and have donated to help with costs. If enough of us join together, we can put a spotlight on the corruption and force state officials to fix the problem! NC Bar attorneys are stuffing complaints against themselves under the rug, while they continue to pass judgment on other attorneys, and in some instances, they are making up facts and law to use against them. This is just plain wrong!
