Where Did This Herd Immunity Nonsense Come From?

To compliment the Angry Chef's post above:

Where Did This Herd Immunity Nonsense Come From?

“Herd immunity” is the battle cry of vaccinators that gets the attention of medical agency bureaucrats, politicians and the media. It motivates them to legislate vaccination mandates and come down on non-vaccinators, using guilt for not contributing to their concept of the “greater good”.

But does it exist? And where did this notion that’s inspiring the Medical Mafia to feel the need to vaccinate everyone for every mostly minor infectious disease on the planet?

We know by the breakouts occurring with measles, mumps, whooping cough (pertussis) and seasonal flu among heavily vaccinated populations, up to 95% here and 99% in China, that vaccines aren’t really effective at immunizing. In many cases, they cause the symptoms of diseases they’re promoted to protect against.

Even so, the CDC and medical press releases that are filtered through our mainstream media always finger those not vaccinated as the culprits who endangered the mostly vaccinated population.

Herd Immunity Coined Before Vaccines Were Widespread

A John’s Hopkins scientist by the name of Arthur Hedrich coined the term herd immunity during the 1930s after observing after a measles outbreak in Baltimore that infected 55% of the child population, the remaining percentage of children were not infected.

He did a similar study during a Boston measles outbreak in Boston where he pegged the number at 68% infected creating immunity for the remaining 32%. Note that he used measles outbreaks long before measles vaccines were developed.

The vaccinators co-opted the term for vaccination campaigns, and the bar for herd immunity was raised to 95%. That means more vaccine sales without consequence. Since 1986 vaccine makers and medical practitioners cannot be sued directly for adverse reactions. It seems the vaccine makers and CDC want it even higher.

Keep in mind that the infected also became immune from measles for a lifetime after recovering from their episodes. It’s openly admitted that vaccines do not confer life time immunity. That’s why there are booster shots.

Even children or adults who come into contact with others infected but do not exhibit symptoms can acquire long term immunity. I’ve been told that a few decades ago parents took their children to homes of those infected with measles, mumps, or chicken pox to intentionally expose them and allow them to develop natural lifetime immunity, which could develop with or without symptoms.

Vaccination Campaigns Create More Disease

This is what has happened in India, Pakistan, and some African nations where so called “humanitarian efforts” have forced oral polio vaccines (OPVs) on children resulting in outbreaks of “polio like paralysis” and “non-polio acute flaccid paralysis” (NPFP), and Gulliane Barre Syndrome, a form of partial to whole body paralysis that vaccines cause.

The Bill Gates’ and the WHO’s India OPV vaccine push has caused an estimated 53,000 cases of the types of paralysis mentioned while boasting of a “polio free India”. Shoot ‘em up and change the name of the disease, thus “eradicating polio” while causing the worst symptoms of that disease with the vaccines.

The result of the Polio Free India vaccination push left India with the world’s highest incidence of NPFP, which is clinically indistinguishable from polio paralysis but twice as deadly. The incidence of NPAFP was directly proportional to doses of oral polio received.

Yet the vaccine herd immunity card is played to the max. A couple of years ago USA Today editorialized “Vaccine opt-outs put public health at risk.” Here’s a quote from that article, “ … herd immunity works only when nearly the whole herd joins in. When some refuse vaccinations and seek a free ride, immunity breaks down and everyone is more vulnerable.”

Don’t fall for the herd immunity vaccine propaganda. It’s totally and completely false, just as the numbers offered as their proof of vaccines ending diseases. They simply lie. Here’s the real deal.

Aha! got it

The background changed - right?

This is marketing: like Holden vs. Ford while the same factory churns them out.

Keep the home teams guessing with their preferences intact and still buying.

I hate marketing - Just so you know.

It is evil with a budget target.
