Studies Show that Vaccinated Individuals Spread Disease
Should the Recently Vaccinated be Quarantined to Prevent Outbreaks?

WASHINGTON, D.C. –February 2, 2015– [ GlobeNewsWire ] — Health officials are blaming unvaccinated children for the recent measles outbreak that started at Disneyland.

Scientific evidence demonstrates that individuals vaccinated with live virus vaccines such as MMR (measles, mumps and rubella), rotavirus, chicken pox, shingles and influenza can shed the virus for many weeks or months afterwards and infect the vaccinated and unvaccinated alike.1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10

Furthermore, vaccine recipients can carry diseases in the back of their throat and infect others while displaying no symptoms of a disease.11,12,13

“Numerous scientific studies indicate that children who receive a live virus vaccination can shed the disease and infect others for weeks or even months afterwards. Thus, parents who vaccinate their children can indeed put others at risk,” explains Leslie Manookian, documentary filmmaker and activist. Manookian’s award winning documentary, The Greater Good, aims to open a dialog about vaccine safety.

Both unvaccinated and vaccinated individuals are at risk from exposure to those recently vaccinated. Vaccine failure is widespread; vaccine-induced immunity is not permanent and recent outbreaks of diseases such as whooping cough, mumps and measles have occurred in fully vaccinated populations.14,15 Flu vaccine recipients become more susceptible to future infection after repeated vaccination.16, 17

“Health officials should require a two-week quarantine of all children and adults who receive vaccinations,” says Sally Fallon Morell, president of the Weston A. Price Foundation. “This is the minimum amount of time required to prevent transmission of infectious diseases to the rest of the population, including individuals who have been previously vaccinated.”

“Vaccine failure and failure to acknowledge that live virus vaccines can spread disease have resulted in an increase in outbreaks of infectious disease in both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals,” says Manookian, “CDC should instruct physicians who administer vaccinations to inform their patients about the risks posed to others by those who’ve been recently vaccinated.”

According to the Weston A. Price Foundation, the best protection against infectious disease is a healthy immune system, supported by adequate vitamin A and vitamin C. Well-nourished children easily recover from infectious disease and rarely suffer complications.

The number of measles deaths declined from 7575 in 1920 (10,000 per year in many years in the 1910s) to an average of 432 each year from 1958-1962.18 The vaccine was introduced in 1963. Between 2005 and 2014, there have been no deaths from measles in the U.S. and 108 deaths from the MMR vaccine.19

Corrections made Feb 3, 2015:  1) We have struck out the second sentence in the first paragraph, which read, “However, with no blood tests proving the outbreak is from wild measles, the most likely source of the outbreak is a recently vaccinated individual, according to published science.” Since we released the press release, it has come to our attention that 9 cases of measles related to the Disneyland outbreak have in fact been confirmed via blood test as wild genotype B3 measles. We do not know the status of the others. According to CDC there are about 100 measles cases this year, 67 of which are related to Disneyland. While CDC says most of the 67 Disneyland cases were unvaccinated or vaccination status is unknown, they assume that if this outbreak is similar to last year, about 20% were vaccinated. It is clear from the experience at Disneyland and the scientific literature that both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals can contract and spread disease and the demonization of the unvaccinated is unfair, inappropriate and borders on fear mongering. 

2) See also, an added footnote # 17 in the fifth paragraph. The rest of the footnotes are renumbered, accordingly.

    Finally. An article on vaccines that doesn’t defy logic and does give accurate information on this very controversial topic. With so much miss-information out there, this article is a breath of fresh air.

  2. angela eisenhauer says:

    I tested kids for a pertussis outbreak in Western Australia 2010. We have around a 95% vaccination rate. All the kids (hundreds of them in a town of 45,000) tested positive, had been coughing for around 6 weeks, spreading it everywhere. ALL THE SUFFERERS WERE VACCINATED, AGED 6-12. It was found by the health department, that those vaccinated, still with vaccine immunity, were carriers of the disease, without symptoms. So we stopped counting…….. Everyone had been exposed. Interesting was no one vaccinated pre 1995 got the illness. It was later proven that at full vaccination, only 8 out of ten showed an immune response, at 5 years only 3 showed an immune response. AND AT 10 YEARS, NO IMMUNE RESPONSE……….. ie the pertussis vaccine fails in 70% of cases after only five years….. Worse than this, is the reality that those vaccinated in 1995 are now 20, and having babies. They can,and do, even though fully vaccinated, spread pertussis to their own infants (who can not be vaccinated, cant vaccinate newborns, as it kills them).. so not only are mothers vaccinated with this failed acellular vaccine, infecting their own babies (as are other members of the family), with absolutely no signs of illness themselves…. the mother is unable to pass the vaccine antibodies to her infant……… UNHEARD OF IN THE HISTORY OF IMMUNOLOGY. MORE BABIES ARE NOW DYING OF WHOOPING COUGH, THAN PRE 1995. Mostly infected by vaccinated people with Mercks now failed pertussis vaccine. Instead of removing the vaccine, Merck has now recommended re jabbing anyone likely to be around a newborn, called the coccooning theory. This has proven a failure, as the Australian Health Department has discovered those most recently vaccinated, are more likely to be unwitting carriers of pertussis………….. yes Merck, etc, has made it worse. And only an idiot would recommend doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result.

      Stunning indictment of a failed public policy that is now becoming mandatory throughout the land. Absolutely criminal. Thanks for this post.

      • angela coral eisenhauer (fb) says:

        Thanks Dawn, my gosh, just type angela coral eisenhuaer, or angela eisenhauer into google, like wow!
        The horrible thing is? now they are trying to prevaccinate babies before birth, for whooping cough, with a vaccine, that kills them if given at birth, ummmm and seem surprised this leads to near double the rate of late term miscarriages and a 500% increase in chances of a microcephalic baby. How corrupt can CDC be?

  3. angela eisenhauer says:

    Measles in Disneyland? I was given three different theories. CDC said 5,000 were likely to be have been exposed. 50 who got ill were non vaccinated. If between 50% -86% were vaccinated, this proves a natural immunity of around 93% – 98%. (In the non vaccinated of 14% – 50%) The third theory, 99% were vaccinated, and ALL THE NON VACCINATED GOT MEASLES. This would show that the herd immunity is a ridiculous myth.
    Anyway you do the basic maths, anyone can see that those non vaccinated, had higher immunity, than the claimed effectiveness of pertussis vaccine (85%)……….. so why on earth get vaccinated, if you less likely to get ill, if you are not vaccinated?

    • veronica says:

      just one more sentence on “herd immunity”. “Herd immunity” is a theory. its failed us 2 times before and failing again. Epidemiologists were talking about that many ears ago: we r shifting disease burden to a very yang and old, childhood diseases in those age groups are not benign and medical community tries to catch up or “deal” with this problem: boosting and vaccinating pregnant. its not that HOT idea:(((. to learn more about herd immunity start here: Herd immunity: history, theory, practice.

    Your reference for #12 is the same for #11.

  5. Ivona says:

    No offense, I am trying to find out on the topic more myself, but your 16th reference is an article that is basically summed up by this sentence of its “Dr. Margaret K. Hostetter, who leads the department of pediatrics at Yale, was impressed with the study’s methodology and said it reinforced the case for early vaccination.”
    Am I missing something?

  6. Redpill1 says:

    Genotype B3 wild measles has been in the US since 2005: http://wwwnc.cdc(dot)gov/eid/article/12/11/06-0635_article. From what I read on the CDC’s website in 2015 all of the measles genotypes respond to the current vaccine which is why there isn’t a vaccine for each genotype. Here they are:

    A*, B2, B3, C1, C2, D2, D3, D4, D5, D6, D7, D8, D9, D10, D11, G2, G3, H1, H2

    *Vaccine strains Moraten, Edmonston, Zagreb are all genotype A.
    There were 2 putative wild-type cases of measles identified as genotype A in 2008.

    During 2011, 8 genotypes were identified by global surveillance:

    B2, B3, D4, D8, D9, D11, G3, H1.

    If the MMR is suppose to be effective against all of the above including Genotype B3 doesn’t that mean it is no longer considered a wild virus if components of it are in the MMR? If components of it are in the MMR, which to me is the only way the CDC can say the vaccine is effective against this genotype, that means it can also be shedded and spread by a vaccinated person. If you know anything about the governments nasty little habit of experimenting on it’s citizens, you know than it’s possible this virus was planted. Easy to do from what I’ve read. If you don’t believe the government and the CDC are capable of this read:

    My next door neighbor has his annual flue vaccination and like clockwork comes down with a nasty cold or flue. Whenever I attempt to explain to him that I never have the flue vaccine and never get sick even when I’m having chemotherapy he leans on his standard mantra,”But they told me I must have it” When I inquire “who are they” He can’t tell me or says “on the TV” This old fart trusts his governments and the health system as if his life depended on it. Also he’s diabetic and drinks like a fish 24/7. Great fellow but he just won’t think critically. Funny thing is that he’s in his late seventies while I’m only 62 and fighting Lymphoma, he will probably live longer than I.
