Such rubbish! Look after your immunity. Breast feed your baby and you are doing your very best. My family and friends were free to visit my newborn babies. This is how it should be. Do not listen to such rubbish.
My frustrated exclamation was emitted in response to a ‘discussion’ on Studio 10 on July 31. Studio 10 is an Australian morning talk show on Network 10.
The episode on Studio 10 began with:
Many new parents are telling their family and friends that if they want to see their baby: ‘No Vax, No Visit.’
Blogger Mel Watts who is described as ‘one mum who took the stance’ shared ‘how her loved ones reacted to the policy’.
Watts explained that she was trying to protect her new baby from infection and so requested that her friends and family have a DTPa ( diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis) shot before visiting. Understandably some of her contacts did not agree and said ‘okay I’m not going to visit’. These however were not antivaxxers said Watts but rather relatives who it would appear had not been caught up in the latest medical brainwashing.
For their ‘expert’ opinion the panel included Professor Kristine Macartney from the National Centre for Immunisation Research who continued the disparagement of those who do not agree with vaccines in pregnancy and who do not agree with the mantra that vaccines are necessary prior to a visit a new baby.
According to Macartney:
There are this very small percentage who are very vocal
echoing Watts description of antivaxxers as being ‘very loud’
But as we know those of us who no longer vaccinate and are called antivaxxers are unlikely to be on Studio 10 and so are not loud and are not heard, whereas Macartney and Watts are given this prominent airtime to expel their dangerous views.
Macartney’s advice for newborn protection is vaccines for pregnancy: DTPa which includes the whooping cough vaccine and the influenza vaccine along with vaccines for the rest of the household.
Currently women are advised to be vaccinated for diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis and influenza while they are pregnant. But what are women meant to think? Just recently among the advice given to expectant mothers was to avoid alcohol, limit fish intake, and choose wisely when consuming cheese. So I am both astonished and saddened that young mothers-to-be are now advised to be vaccinated.
Problems With The Pertussis Vaccine
1. Pertussis vaccines are not very effective. After an outbreak of whooping cough in highly vaccinated kindergarten children living in Elk Grove, California, concerned health officials suggested that the vaccine was only protective for three years at most.
2. The mass pertussis vaccination program may be causing more dangerous strains of pertussis to emerge resulting in more serious symptoms. There have been reports from around the world that there is a new more virulent strain which differs from that contained in the vaccine. Eighty-four percent of all reported pertussis cases in Australia are reportedly associated with the newer strain.
3. Animal studies have shown that although vaccinated baby baboons didn’t develop symptoms of pertussis when coming into contact with the pertussis bacteria, they still colonized B. pertussis in their throats and so could pass the infection onto others. The study’s lead author, Tod Merkel, explained that when someone is exposed to B. pertussis after recently getting vaccinated, they could be an asymptomatic carrier and infect others. “When you’re newly vaccinated, you are an asymptomatic carrier, which is good for you, but not for the population.”
4. According to Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) there have been 19,357 serious adverse events as of December 30, 2015 in connection with pertussis-containing vaccines since 1990 and most of these in children three years old and under. The deaths resulting from these adverse events of the vaccine amounted to 2,512, with 90% of deaths in children under three years old.
Pertussis Vaccine Ingredients
Australia uses GlaxoSmithKline’s Boostrix vaccine for adults. The contents of this vaccine are:
diphtheria toxoid, tetanus toxoid and acellular pertussis vaccine. DTpa components adsorbed on 0.5mg aluminium and suspended in isotonic sodium chloride. The vaccine also contains formaldehyde, polysorbate 80 and glycine in residual amounts
Every dose of the DTPa (diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis) vaccine contains 500 micrograms of aluminium. Aluminium is a neurotoxin and this is injected into the bodies of very young children whose developing brains are extremely vulnerable. Five doses by the age of 5 results in a large amount of the heavy metal accumulating in these growing bodies especially when coupled with the aluminium received by way of other vaccines such as hepatitis B given from birth and again in childhood. This is all very serious and gets even more alarming as the pregnant women are also being coerced into having these aluminium containing vaccines.
Paediatrician Dr. Paul Thomas gives his advice to expectant mothers:
“The problem is that it is a humongous dose of aluminium you are injecting right into the pregnant mum. It is going to go right into the bloodstream where it has a half-life of over a week during which time it bathes that developing baby’s brain with a known neurotoxin. It’s insanity! I would absolutely under no circumstances do that to my unborn child.”
And for some excellent analysis of the Studio 10 segment here is Under the Wire featuring Meryl Dorey, Allona Lahn and Tristan
Tristan takes us through the package inserts and describes the dangers of the vaccines during pregnancy.
In regard to the DTPa vaccines human studies done found that 14% of those studies had a major birth defect, stillbirth or miscarriage and in another study 15% of women had a miscarriage. In regard to the flu vaccine these are several vaccines offered and these lack safety studies. And yet these are given in pregnancy.
Allona Lahn explains the consequences of this ‘no jab, no visit’ policy:
what is happening now in our society – we are creating division, segregation and hate
Meryl Dorey recalls that
2013 was the first year that 95% of children 2 years and under were vaccinated against whooping cough and that year there were over 14000 cases of whooping cough…this was higher than it was in 1953 when mass vaccination was introduced in Australia.
Please listen as Under the Wire panel responds to the media lies and pulls the No jab , No visit apart.
This policy is No Way.
