What About Getting the Chicken Pox and Shingles Vaccines?
I will be 73 in March 2018.
The topic of flu shots and shingles vaccines comes up often in my network of senior citizens.
I had chicken pox as a child, but I got shingles last May. And let me tell you that shingles is NO FUN. I still have nerve damage and itching.
The flu and shingles vaccines are heavily promoted by doctors and nurses for those in my age range. The “why” of that is complicated and isn’t about human health. Doctors and nurses are now workers in an industry where actual science is often no competition against profit. There is, also, a monopoly formation going on in medicine in which outside businesses are buying up hospitals and doctors’ practices, and they are calling the medical shots. Big Pharma profits from all vaccines and is trying to expand its market share. Further Big Pharma and doctors cannot be sued for any vaccine damage–and there is plenty. The so-called “vaccine court” has paid out billions of dollars for damage incurred by individuals from vaccines. Big Pharma has created pretty lucrative incentives for individual doctor practices and hospitals. Big Pharma has even been able to get the US government to write laws that incentivize hospitals to give vaccines. The higher percentages of vaccines given, the bigger payout the hospital gets from medicare. Insurance companies incentivize individual practices. It is a rigged system. And if you are not aware of it, and most aren’t, you just go along, mostly because we should be able to trust our medical personnel. They are, many times, good medical people. But they, too, are trusting of “the system.” Or their hands are tied as they are, now, just workers in the system and would be fired if they do not follow the “standards of care,” which has been crafted by industry. Let’s just remember that doctors are NOT SCIENTISTS. They are practitioners who know only what they are taught unless they decide to research for themselves. And most don’t. Besides, as I said, it is a very lucrative system for them for the most part.
The link below takes you to a comprehensive GOVERNMENT study out of the National Institutes of Health that concludes that the chicken pox and shingles vaccine (they are the same thing) have created significant unintended consequences, don’t work permanently, are creating unnecessary and significant expenses for people, and are creating a cycle of treatment and disease. THIS VACCINE SHOULD BE STOPPED.
The cycle of treatment and disease derives in part from the fact that shingles is a LIVE virus and sheds to other people from someone who got the vaccine. Those test tube strains are most likely not the same strain as the wild virus I got as a child. So, I was unprotected and got shingles.
Here is the conclusion from the study:
Prior to the universal varicella vaccination program, 95% of adults experienced natural chickenpox (usually as pre-school to early elementary school children)—these cases were usually benign. In the prelicensure era, the periodic exogenous boosting that adults received from those shedding VZV resulted in long-term immunity. This high percentage of seropositive individuals and their long-term immunity have been compromised by the universal varicella vaccination of children which provides at best 70–90% protection [142,163–166] that is temporary and of unknown duration—shifting chickenpox to a more vulnerable adult population which, as Dr. Jane Seward cautioned in 2007, carries 20 times more risk of death and 10–15 times more risk of hospitalization compared to chickenpox in children . Thus, the proponents for universal varicella vaccination have failed to consider increased HZ-related morbidity as well as the adverse effects of both the varicella and HZ vaccines which have more than offset the limited benefits associated with reductions in varicella disease. The universal varicella (chickenpox) vaccination program now requires a booster vaccine for children and an HZ vaccine to boost protection in adults. However, these are less effective than the natural immunity that existed in communities prior to licensure of the varicella vaccine. Hence, rather than eliminating varicella in children as promised, routine vaccination against varicella has proven extremely costly [60,62,168] and has created continual cycles of treatment and disease.
