On page 37 of that 2008 article, TIME lamented that only 77% of kinder-gardeners in America were completely up-to-date on their vaccines and that 2-3% had documented religious or philosophical exemptions:
Here we are ten years later -- whooping cough, measles and mumps outbreaks are happening -- just as they warned.
But what is the evidence that this is BECAUSE of people not vaccinating their children?
Look at the latest vaccination stats:
That report puts the overall rate of vaccinated kinder-gardeners at about 94%:
But contrary to media spin, the science actually suggests:
- Vaccines do not confer as effective nor as long lasting immunity as actually getting the disease.
- We've been misled about the true efficacy of vaccines, while the harms have been downplayed.
In the ten years since TIME ran this cover story, the actual percentage of fully vaccinated children has increased by over 15%, yet the media-medical industrial complex wants us to believe recent outbreaks of measles, mumps and whooping cough are the result of a small percentage of people who are not vaccinating their children.
Published science shows both whooping cough and mumps can be shed and spread in fully vaccinated populations. Though measles vaccine appears to be a bit more effective -- many properly vaccinated against measles have gotten it too.
Meanwhile, we have a growing number of parents coming forward alleging serious adverse events following their child's vaccinations and leaving them brain-damaged, disabled or dead. We also have an epidemic of chronic diseases plaguing fully vaccinated children (allergy, asthma, autoimmune disease, seizures, autism, and psychiatric disorders) which are seen less frequently in completely unvaccinated children.
Obviously many children show no obvious harms following their vaccines. But that doesn't disprove that vaccines are harming others. Just like with the Jack-in-the-box E. Coli outbreak that sickened and killed dozens, there were thousands of people who also ate food at the restaurant without getting hurt.
Do your own critical thinking.
