After spending $200 million on the development and release of the
MeNZB™ vaccine, data released quietly by the Ministry of Health
confirms that it has failed to work.
In Counties Manukau, ground zero for meningococcal disease, from
January to October (inclusive) there have been eight cases of
meningococcal disease due to the epidemic strain in under twenty year
old, six in fully vaccinated children, and two in partially or
In the Waikato there has been a 60 percent increase in case numbers
for all age groups since the introduction of the vaccine, including
two unreported deaths.
Among the many officially reported and unofficially collected cases
of side effects of the vaccine the Ministry of Health website records
49 seizures for the 2.8 million doses of MeNZB(tm).
Paradoxically, after six years and 20 million doses of legal party
pills consumed in New Zealand there have been 15 recorded seizures.
In other words, a dose of MeNZB(tm) appears to be 23 times more
hazardous than party pills.
