CDC Wants MMR and MMRV Vaccine Comments By December 19, 2016

cdc-mmr-vaccineBy Catherine J. Frompovich

Time is running out to submit your comments to the CDC regarding the problematic MMR and MMRV vaccines given to infants and toddlers, which many think have an adverse impact on Autism.

I filed a 10-page comment, which is below, on December 14th.  Guess how many comments were posted as of that date?  A measly 236!  The last time the CDC asked for comments, consumers posted over 15,000!

Earlier, I wrote an article about the CDC’s request for comments, which I heartily suggest you read and file your complaint.  You can get some ideas from what I said in my filing, so please file your comment before midnight of Tuesday, December 19, 2016.  Please don’t let an important opportunity slip by regarding vaccines that harm infants, toddlers and children.

Here’s the CDC website where you can file your complaint, and thank you!

Proposed Revised Vaccine Information Materials for MMR (Measles, Mumps, and Rubella) and MMRV (Measles, Mumps, Rubella, and Varicella) Vaccines

>>Docket ID: CDC-2016-0094<<

Agency: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

Due Date: Dec. 19, 2016

Please accept the following information regarding MMR and MMRV vaccines, based upon published scientific research and studies, which I enumerate first, and follow with my comments that CDC requests regarding REVISED Vaccine Information Materials for MMR and MMRV Vaccines.

My comments are based upon studying published vaccine research since the 1980s and using the synopsis of 400 scientific papers in the 2016 book “Critical Vaccine Studies” by Neil Z. Miller.

A comparative evaluation of the effects of MMR immunization and mercury doses from thimerosal-containing childhood vaccines on the population prevalence of autism.

Geier DA, Geier MR.

“There is biological plausibility and epidemiological evidence showing a direct relationship between increasing doses of mercury from thimerosal-containing vaccines and neurodevelopmental disorders, and measles-containing vaccines and serious neurological disorders.  It is recommended that thimerosal be removed from all vaccines, and additional research be undertaken to produce an MMR vaccine with an improved safety profile.”

  1. Sci Eng Ethics 2015; 21(1): 143-57.

On the Suppression of Vaccination Dissent.

Martin B.

“According to the highest ideals of science, ideas should be judged on their merits, and addressed through mustering evidence and logic.  Suppression of dissent is a violation of these ideals.”

“Anyone who questions the dominant views about vaccines is subject to abuse, including threats, formal complaints, censorship, and loss of their livelihood.”[19]

The first 25 peer-reviewed, published scientific articles discuss MMR and MMRV vaccines and adverse health findings associated with those vaccines, which the medical profession currently ignores and consequently refuses to advise parents and intended vaccinees of those risks as part of standard accepted medical ethics, i.e., “informed consent.”

Items 26 to 34 discuss the unfortunate criminal state of “consensus science” in research, specifically regarding fraud and vested-interest-biases.  Much fraud and biases apply to vaccines, which the CDC and FDA ignore to the mounting detriment of human health, especially the ever-escalating autism and other neurodevelopmental disabilities of younger generations since the 1990s.

The vaccine industry’s consensus pseudoscience relative to human diploid cells (aborted fetal cell lines) and possible adverse homologous recombination; the use of recombinant and/or foreign DNA; plus numerous chemical ingredients being injected into infants and toddlers whose immune systems are not fully developed until around 2 years of age, truly is nothing short of “a flat earth theory” that was so prevalent in the Middle Ages, unless there’s a bio-diversifying  agenda to restructure human physiology and promote transhumanism starting with infants, toddlers and teens.

MMR (MMR-II) Medium 199 (vitamins, amino acids, fetal bovine serum, sucrose, glutamate) , Minimum Essential Medium, phosphate, recombinant human albumin, neomycin, sorbitol, hydrolyzed gelatin, chick embryo cell culture, WI-38 human diploid lung fibroblasts

Comments for MMR and MMRV Vaccines Revised Information

First and foremost:  CDC and FDA must restructure the childhood vaccination schedule for the MMR and MMRV vaccines to be administered only after 24 months or two years of age, based upon numerous studies documenting febrile seizures. 

Also, the CDC and FDA should require all children to take an antibody titer test and a mitochondrial DNA test prior to receiving the MMR and MMRV vaccines in order to preclude brain and CNS adverse reactions to the problematic MMR and MMRV vaccines.

No. 1

All healthcare professionals who administer MMR and MMRV vaccines must verbally communicate, and also provide in writing, that MMR and MMRV vaccines are associated with a higher risk of seizures, both acute and febrile.

All printed, professional and media information must admit that for ten years the Mumps active efficacy rate in the MMR vaccine was fudged and falsified, as per a Merck & Company whistleblowers’ qui tam action lawsuit in Federal Court in Philadelphia, PA, which obviously skewed mumps demographics.   Healthcare consumers have every right to know that important information as part of “informed consent,” which was denied consumers who took those vaccines thinking they were ‘protected’—but not—due to the deliberate Merck and Company fraud regarding the MMR vaccine.

Therefore, all printed, professional and media information must contain the following information:

Merck and Company “failed to disclose that its mumps vaccine was not as effective as Merck represented, (ii) used improper testing techniques, (iii) manipulated testing methodology, (iv) abandoned undesirable test results, (v) falsified test data, (vi) failed to adequately investigate and report the diminished efficacy of its mumps vaccine, (vii) falsely verified that each manufacturing lot of mumps vaccine would be as effective as identified in the labeling, (viii) falsely certified the accuracy of applications filed with the FDA, (ix) falsely certified compliance with the terms of the CDC purchase contract, (x) engaged in the fraud and concealment describe herein for the purpose of illegally monopolizing the U.S. market for mumps vaccine, (xi) mislabeled, misbranded, and falsely certified its mumps vaccine, and (xii) engaged in the other acts described herein to conceal the diminished efficacy of the vaccine the government was purchasing,” in order to meet the FDA’s 95% effective rate for the vaccine.”

No. 2

All printed, professional and media information must admit that Merck and Company performed sham testing on the MMR vaccine in the 1990s in order to report a 95% or higher efficacy rate for that vaccine in order to maintain its FDA licensure and Merck and Company’s resulting monopoly market for its MMR vaccine.

No. 3

All printed, professional and media information must admit that Merck and Company added rabbit blood antibodies to the MMR vaccine, which increased the MMR vaccine efficacy rate to 100%, which was fraudulent and illegal.

No. 4

All printed, professional and media information must admit that the MMR vaccine in the 1990s had an efficacy rate of only 69% <> and that the CDC/FDA misled the global medical profession and public health agencies regarding the MMR vaccine.

No. 5

All printed, professional and media information must inform consumers that the CDC and FDA do not perform science-based testing upon any vaccines, but only promote the vaccine maker’s testing and efficacy results, which could be biased, inaccurate and not based on factual scientific data, since the CDC’s own records prove collusion to deceive healthcare consumers regarding vaccines transpired:

a. The Simpsonwood Meeting of June 2000 that was held to rework the CDC’s Dr Verstraeten’s findings that autism and the MMR vaccine were connected.

b. The Poul Thorsen falsified Danish data study N Engl J Med. 2002 Nov 7;347(19):1477-82. A population-based study of measles, mumps, and rubella vaccination and autism. Madsen KM1, Hviid A, Vestergaard M, Schendel D, Wohlfahrt J, Thorsen P, Olsen J, Melbye M that the CDC uses to falsely support there is no Autism-MMR vaccine association.

c. The CDC epidemiologist William Thompson, PhD, whistleblower admission that he and other CDC researchers conspired to NOT include the fact and pertinent data that there was an autism-MMR vaccine connection in young black boys under three years of age.

No. 6

All printed, professional and media information must report that the MMR-II vaccine contains 2.90 ppb glyphosate, the prime active in the herbicide Roundup®, as documented by independent laboratory tests and Samsel Environmental and Public Health Services in a letter to U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) dated August 29, 2016.

That important chemical/pharmacological fact must be made public knowledge in all information about the MMR-II vaccine as a matter of patient informed consent plus truth in advertising which negatively impacts CDC/FDA’s and Merck’s ‘safety’ claims.  Glyphosate is a Group 2A carcinogen per the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer[20].

No. 7

All printed, professional and media information must contain the fact that as of a 2015 EPA study, 15 percent of children between the ages of 3 to 17 in the USA have neurodevelopmental disorders.

The CDC and FDA refuse to investigate whether neurotoxins in vaccines have a causal effect or etiology with the relatively new syndrome of neurodevelopmental disorders, e.g., ADD, ADHD, ASD, etc., plus ever-increasing chronic diseases, e.g., diabetes and cancers, in children’s health.
