The Vaccine Industry Drives Big Philanthropy, Big Media and Government Agencies

The following article is the third of three excerpts from a report, WHO, Pharma, Gates & Government: Who’s Calling the Shots?, which was published by the National Vaccine Information Center on Jan. 29, 2019.

The Gates Foundation was established in 2000 by Microsoft Corporation founder Bill Gates and his wife, Melinda.70 Headquartered in Seattle, Washington, the Gates Foundation is the largest philanthropic foundation in the world with a $43.5 billion trust that makes grant payments of more than $3 billion annually to advance the foundation’s goals for reforming education systems, such as institution of Common Core curriculum in all U.S. schools,71 and funding public health initiatives, primarily global vaccination programs.72 A major goal of the Gates Foundation is to make sure every child in the world is vaccinated.73

Investor businessman Warren Buffet, who took control of textile manufacturer Berkshire Hathaway, Inc. in 1965 and went on to amass a personal fortune of more than $60 billion, pledged $31 billion and became a co-director of Gates Foundation in 2006.74

In 1998, the same year that the U.S. Department of Justice filed an anti-trust lawsuit against Microsoft Corporation,75 Bill and Melinda Gates committed $100 million to create the Bill & Melinda Gates Children’s Vaccine Program. One purpose of that program was to establish an international consensus on vaccine use recommendations: “Efforts will be made to support international conferences and the development and dissemination of strong international consensus statements and recommendations for the use of the new vaccines.”76

The homepage of the Gates Foundation proclaims ALL LIVES HAVE EQUAL VALUE and states:

We believe we can save lives by delivering the latest in science and technology to those with the greatest needs. We work with partners to provide effective vaccines, drugs and diagnostics and to develop innovative approaches to deliver health services to those who need it most. And we invest heavily in developing new vaccines to prevent infectious diseases that impose the greatest burden.77

In 2016, Global Justice Now published an investigative report, Gated Development: Is the Gates Foundation always a force for good? Authors were critical of the unchecked political power and influence on global health programs and agricultural policies of Bill Gates and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF):

To say that the BMGF has become an important actor in international development would be an understatement. When it comes to global health and agriculture policies, two of its key grant areas, the BMGF has become probably the most influential actor in the world. It is also likely that Bill Gates, who has regular access to world leaders and is in effect personally bankrolling hundreds of universities, international organisations, NGOs and media outlets, has become the single most influential voice in international development.78

But the BMGF’s increasing global influence is not being subjected to democratic scrutiny. Unlike governments, which are formally accountable to their electorates, the BMGF is a private US foundation, and remains unaccountable to public bodies (except for tax reporting purposes). Even worse, the BMGF appears to have bought the silence of academics, NGOs and the media who might otherwise be expected to criticize aspects of the foundation’s work.78

Money Makes the World Go Around

Congress appropriated nearly $90 billion to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in 2018 and the biggest line item in the CDC’s $11 billion budget was the Vaccines for Children program  (VFC) ($4.5 billion), which was created by Congress in 1993.79 Under the VFC program, the federal government purchases CDC recommended vaccines from vaccine manufacturers to administer to children who are on Medicaid, are uninsured or whose health insurance plans do not fully cover CDC recommended vaccines.80 81 Hundreds of millions of dollars are additionally allocated in the HHS budget for vaccination programs, including $700 million for the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases.

Over 2,000 Descend On WA State Capitol To Challenge Vaccine Mandate Bills

Original here:

The Washington State Capitol in Olympia on Friday, February 8, 2019, was filled and buzzing with thousands of concerned citizens and families who drove in from all over the state to attend a public hearing for House Bill 1638, titled, “Promoting immunity against vaccine preventable diseases.” Woven within this misleading bill title is a clause that strives to remove the philosophical/personal exemptions to the MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella) vaccine for children who attend both public and private schools and licensed daycares.

Early lines at the Capitol started at 5:00 am as eager parents and vaccine choice advocates braved the freezing temperatures and biting cold – even with predicted heavy snow fall. Patiently, they waited outside for well over an hour until they were granted entry into the O’Brien Building to sign in for the 8:00 a.m. hearing. Attendees were advised to sign in to the legislative portal on their mobile devices to register their support or opposition to the bill. Due to the enormous turnout, several overflow rooms were set up to live stream the hearing, including extra viewing rooms in the Senate area. Capitol security staff reported that this was the largest crowd turnout for a bill with over 2,000 people.

The crowd overwhelmingly opposed HB 1638 for a multitude of reasons: from lack of vaccine safety, personal freedom, violation of parental/human rights, bodily autonomy, the fraud that Merck faces due to omitting data and manipulating the efficacy of the MMR, the ingredients, the risks and injury from the vaccine are greater than contracting the measles, government overreach for personal medical decisions, mandating a liability-free product due to the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986, no proper safety studies using a double-blind placebo, the violation of informed consent, and numerous additional concerns. There were also pro-vaccine supporters that expressed strong opposition to the HB 1638 bill who were against the removal of parental rights.

Merck and Sanofi have teamed up to produce a 6-in-1 combo vaccine to market in the US. Despite the death of six infants in clinical trials and other evidence of dangerous side effects, the FDA has given the thumbs-up for this combo vaccine. This is another example of this agency prioritizing profitability over safety.

Write to the FDA with a copy to Congress, urging the agency to revoke approval of Vaxelis pending further safety studies.

Kentucky Investigating Multiple Infections Following Vaccinations

by Barbara Loe Fisher and Marco Cáceres

On Feb. 1, 2019, the Department for Public Health (DPH) in Kentucky announced it was investigating ” multiple infections associated with vaccinations” administered by a company called Location Vaccination of  Mt. Sterling, Kentucky. The vaccinations were given at various business locations in Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana since Sept. 1,2018.1

According a press release issued by the Commonwealth of Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services, “Individuals with vaccination-associated infections related to this provider have experienced redness, pain or tenderness, swelling, and the development of hard lumps, or nodules, at the injection site.”1 It warns, “Symptoms may start from a few days to more than 12 weeks after vaccination. Medical care is advised since infections will likely not get better on their own.”1

DPH commissioner Jeff Howard, MD attributed the cause of the infections to “improper storage and handling” of the vaccine. “It is important that individuals vaccinated by this company seek appropriate medical evaluation and treatment,” Dr. Howard stressed.1 He did not specify which vaccine was responsible for the infections or vaccine(s) were thought to be responsible for the infections.

Severe local vaccine reactions, which produce varying degrees of redness, swelling, or pain at the injection site, are frequently reported and acknowledged reactions to vaccination.2 The CDC estimates that local reactions to childhood vaccines occur at the following rates and usually last from one to seven days:

  • 1 in 4 children after diphtheria-tetanus-acellular pertussis (DTaP) shots
  • 1 in 5 to 1 in 16 adolescents after Tdap booster shots
  • 1 in 3 children after pneumococcal (PCV-13) shots
  • 1 in 3 to 9 in 10 adolescents after HPV (Gardasil 9) shots

The World Health Organization (WHO) states that, “Local and systemic reactions such as pain or fever can occur as part of the immune response. In addition, other vaccine components (e.g. adjuvants, stabilizers, and preservatives) can trigger reactions.”3 Aluminum adjuvants in vaccines have been associated with severe local reactions, including large lumps at the site of the injection.
