In 2010, two Merck virologists filed a federal lawsuit against their former employer, alleging the vaccine maker lied about the effectiveness of the mumps portion of its MMR II vaccine.

In 1986, public health officials stated that MMR vaccination rates for kindergarten children were in excess of 95 percent and that one dose of live attenuated measles, mumps and rubella vaccine (MMR) would eliminate the three common childhood diseases in the U.S.1 In 1989, parents were informed that a single dose of MMR vaccine was inadequate for providing lifelong protection against these common childhood diseases and that children would need to get a second dose of MMR.2

Today, 95 percent of children entering kindergarten3 have received two doses of MMR vaccine, as have 92 percent of school children ages 13 to 17 years.4

In some states, the MMR vaccination rate is approaching 100 percent.5 Despite achieving the sought-for MMR vaccination rate for more than three decades, which theoretically should ensure “herd immunity,” outbreaks of both measles and mumps keep occurring—and many of those who get sick are children and adults who have been vaccinated.

Mumps is Making a Comeback

As recently reported by Science Magazine6 and The New York Times,7 mumps is making a strong comeback among college students, with hundreds of outbreaks occurring on U.S. campuses over the past two decades. Last summer, the Minnesota Department of Health reported its largest mumps outbreak since 2006.8

According to recent research,9 the reason for this appears to be, at least in part, waning vaccine-acquired immunity. In other words, protection from the MMR vaccine is wearing off quicker than expected. Science Magazine writes:

[Epidemiologist Joseph Lewnard and immunologist Yonatan Grad, both at the Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health in Boston] compiled data from six previous studies of the vaccine’s effectiveness carried out in the United States and Europe between 1967 and 2008. (None of the studies is part of a current fraudulent claims lawsuit against U.S. vaccine maker Merck.)

Based on these data, they estimated that immunity to mumps lasts about 16 to 50 years, or about 27 years on average. That means as much as 25 percent of a vaccinated population can lose immunity within eight years, and half can lose it within 19 years … The team then built mathematical models using the same data to assess how declining immunity might affect the susceptibility of the U.S. population.

When they ran the models, their findings lined up with reality. For instance, the model predicted that 10- to 19-year-olds who had received a single dose of the mumps vaccine at 12 months were more susceptible to infection; indeed, outbreaks in those age groups happened in the late 1980s and early 1990s. In 1989, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention added a second dose of the vaccine at age 4 to 6 years. Outbreaks then shifted to the college age group.

A Third Booster Shot May Be Added

According to public health officials, the proposed solution to boosting vaccine-acquired mumps immunity in the U.S. population is to add a third booster shot of MMR vaccine at age 18.

Unfortunately, adding a booster for mumps means giving an additional dose of measles and rubella vaccines as well, as the three are only available in the combined MMR vaccine or combined MMR-varicella (MMRV) vaccine. At present, a third MMR shot is routinely recommended during active mumps outbreaks, even though there is no solid proof that this strategy is effective.

Merck Accused of Fraud, Deceit and Negligence in US Gardasil Case

Original here: https://worldmercuryproject.org/news/merck-accused-of-fraud-deceit-and-negligence-in-us-gardasil-case/

By Christina England, BA Hons, for GreenMedInfo, Partner of World Mercury Project

Merck’s aggressive agenda to increase HPV vaccine uptake rates, despite causing thousands of severe injuries, is hitting a stumbling block in a court case alleging blatant corruption.

There has been documented evidence that the HPV vaccine has caused more injuries than any other vaccination in history. Despite this evidence however, the HPV vaccination has continued to be hailed a success by the pharmaceutical industry and governments alike.

According to the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) VigiAccess database, as of April 09, 2018, a total of 85,329 reports of adverse reactions have been filed regarding the HPV vaccination. These reports include 37,699 reports of nervous system disorders; 2450 cardiac disorders, (including 38 cardiac arrests) 533 reports of Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS); over 3200 reports of seizures or epilepsy, 8453 syncope and 389 deaths.

In July 2016, a case was filed in the Superior Court of the State of California, Los Angeles County (central district). The case involved a 16-year-old female who between 2010 and 2011 received three injections of Gardasil, the HPV vaccination manufactured by Merck. Shortly after she received her third vaccination, she suffered a severe adverse reaction, the nature and complexity of which, failed to be diagnosed until 2015, when she finally received the diagnosis of Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS).

For those of you who are unaware, Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS) is an abnormal response of your body when you are upright (usually when standing). It is caused by a problem with the nervous system which controls the autonomic functions in the body. This part of the nervous system is called the autonomic nervous system.

The symptoms of POTS occur when you are upright and are relieved when lying down. These symptoms are associated with an abnormally high and persistent increase in heart rate within ten minutes of standing.  (Description of POTS taken from Patient Accesswebsite)

If this diagnosis was not devastating enough for this young lady and her family, in 2016, she was further diagnosed with an underlying small fiber neuropathy, existing within and throughout her body.

Her family firmly now believe that the vaccinations caused her illness because prior to receiving the HPV vaccination, she was physically active, and had not only participated in her high school basketball team but had also engaged in other athletic activities.

It is for this reason, that the family decided to file a case against the manufacturer of the vaccine, Merck, accusing them of:

1. Fraud and Deceit
2. Negligent Misrepresentation
3. Defective Product – Inadequate warnings & information
4. Medical Malpractice
5. Medical Battery

As you can see these charges are extremely serious and if won, this case would set a precedent for similar cases to be brought against the manufacturer of this vaccine in the future.

“Vaccine Court” rules Gardasil killed Christina Tarsell

The following is the text of an email from Autism Action Network (http://autismactionnetwork.org):

“Vaccine Court” rules Gardasil killed Christina Tarsell

The federal “vaccine court” just ruled that Merck’s Gardasil shot caused the death of 22-year-old Christina Tarsell, the daughter of Emily Tarsell. The proceeding took eight years. Merck claims Gardasil prevents HPV infection. More than 50,000 injuries caused by Gardasil have been reported to the federal Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System. Japan withdrew its recommendation that all girls get the HPV shot in 2013 following reports of several hundred injuries.

MERCK’S HPV VACCINE RESEARCH SCANDAL GAINS MAINSTREAM ATTENTION

Original here: http://www.jeffereyjaxen.com/blog/mercks-hpv-vaccine-research-scandal-gains-mainstream-attention

By Jefferey Jaxen

It has been well over a decade since Merck’s human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccine Gardasil was approved for use. During that time, layer upon layer of research fraud, statistical manipulation, and the purposeful omission of inconvenient facts has created one of medicine’s biggest scandals.

In 2017, historically pro-Big Pharma and pro-vaccine outlet Slate.com launched an eight-month investigation, presumable to debunk the ‘anti-vaccine’ debate once and for all, into the science behind Merck’s HPV vaccine Gardasil. What Slate found wasn’t an open and shut case. Since its inception, the research leading to Gardasil’s regulatory approval has been hotly contested. And now the findings from Slate’s investigation have joined in public lockstep, with the same concerns ‘anti-vaxxers’ have voiced for years, to criticize the lack of science underpinning the HPV vaccine.

Slate’s article reports:

An eight-month investigation by Slate found the major Gardasil trials were flawed from the outset, however, and that regulators allowed unreliable methods to be used to test the vaccine’s safety.

It is important to note here that, as Slate rightly explained in their article, drug regulators look much more seriously at potential side effects that surface during pre-licensure studies rather than after a product has been put on the market. So how were Merck’s pre-licensure Gardasil trials flawed?

Slate obtained more than 2,300 pages of documents through Freedom-of-Information requests from hospitals and health authorities. The documents and information led Slate to suggest there were “…inadequacies built into Merck’s major clinical tests of Gardasil.”  Slate’s investigation stated:

To track the safety of its product, the drugmaker used a convoluted method that made objective evaluation and reporting of potential side effects impossible during all but a few weeks of its years-long trials. At all other times, individual trial investigators used their personal judgment to decide whether or not to report any medical problem as an adverse event—essentially, as a potential side effect worth evaluating further.

Rather than tracking all side effects (adverse reactions) the same, investigators were free to cherry-pick reactions they felt were important essentially handicapping the integrity and quality of the Gardasil trials.

After the disingenuous Gardasil trials that led to its regulatory licensing, the global public at large became the final phase of testing. In the real world, where adverse reactions and inconvenient findings can’t be discarded by Merck researchers, the US Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) is the only effort in place to chronicle issues with the HPV vaccine. VAERS has logged 54,105 adverse reactions related to the HPV vaccine. Among those, 2,227 are listed as “disabled,” 10,416 are listed as “did not recover,” 7,418 are listed as “serious,” and 362 deaths have been reported. Many other reports were listed on VAERS including emergency room visits after vaccination [14,928], hospitalized [5,155], and life-threatening [868].

A US Health and Human Services-funded study by Harvard Medical School tracked reporting to VAERS over a three-year period at Harvard Pilgrim Health Care involving 715,000 patients and found that “fewer than 1% of vaccine adverse events are reported.” A US House Report similarly stated: “Former FDA Commissioner David A. Kessler has estimated that VAERS reports currently represent only a fraction of the serious adverse events.” Recalculating the VAERS HPV reports using Harvard Medical School’s findings of only one percent reporting, the current VAERS information from the HPV vaccine reporting could in reality be as high as 5,410,500 adverse reactions, 1,041,600 disabled, and 36,200 deaths.

VigiAccess is an interface that houses data on medicines and vaccine side effects (adverse reactions) reported to the WHO Programme for International Drug Monitoring (WHO PIDM). The system shows 192,039 reported adverse reactions globally for the three HPV vaccines combined.

Since regulators look much more seriously at potential side effects that surface during pre-licensure studies, official efforts to investigate the scale of injuries from the HPV vaccine has been little to none. We have witnessed a global generation left debilitated by health problems from the HPV vaccine that regulators, global health authorities, and the establishment medical community at large have flatly ignored.

Investigations from around the world in Ireland, Colombia, Japan, Denmark, American, Africa and others have shown near exact patterns of severe adverse reactions from the HPV vaccine programs once they are initiated, and in some cases forced, by government health agencies. Japan’s health agency officially retracted its HPV recommendation only months after mounting injury caused massive pushback from the public.

700 girls in Colombia are currently in the middle of a major class action lawsuit against Merck Sharp & Dohme for damages caused by the Gardasil vaccine.
