NZ Vaccine Brochure Fails to Provide Information on Dangers of Vaccination

25 June 2008, by Clare Swinney

This week a brochure entitled: “Is your child safe? Information on vaccination” arrived inside one of the free newspapers in my region, in Northland.

The 16-page booklet contained a number of graphic photos of children with disfiguring diseases and statements in coloured boxes, including: “Having the vaccine is several thousand times safer than having the disease the vaccine protects against, ” as well as information on “What is a Pandemic? ” Unfortunately, this brochure provided only one side of the story, the scaremongering one that suits the drug companies, while failing to address the many very serious issues related to vaccine safety.


Under the heading “Influenza” it stated: “Outbreaks of the “Flu” occur in New Zealand every year from May to October and kill at least 400 annually.” But is this correct? The figure of 400 seems oddly high for a country with a population of only around 4.2 million. I phoned up to ask the office that released the booklet where this figure had come from, but am still waiting for an answer two days later.

An article posted on Dr Mercola’s website mentioned that the flu deaths in the US have been grossly exaggerated to increase vaccines sales. Specifically, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) had claimed that there were 36,000 deaths from the flu for 2002, while a more comprehensive report showed that in reality there were only 736 for that year, [1, 2]. How did the CDC get from 753 flu deaths to its statement that 36,000 flu deaths occurred annually? By combining flu deaths with pneumonia deaths.

Also, while the brochure stated that flu shots are free to those over 65 years of age, it did not mention that there is significant evidence to indicate that there is no corresponding decrease in death rates in this group. According to a 2007 review in the Lancet medical journal, no studies have conclusively proven that flu shots prevent flu-related deaths among the elderly and some of the support for this practice is based on flawed data, [3,4,5].

Furthermore, there was no mention that there is evidence which links flu shots to Alzheimer’s Disease, [6] . Dr Hugh Fudenberg, the world’s leading immunogeneticist, [7] who has close to 850 papers in peer review journals, has stated that if an individual has had 5 consecutive flu shots between 1970 and 1980 – the years studied – their chances of getting Alzheimer’s, is 10 times higher than if he/she had one, 2 or no shots and said he believed that this was due to the mercury and aluminium that is in every flu shot.

Whilst there is clear evidence to show a vaccine-autism link, this was not canvassed in the booklet, instead the matter was swept under the carpet. It offered: “One study claimed the MMR vaccine could cause Autism. All but one of the researchers have now withdrawn their claims against the vaccine.” Even, Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain has weighed in on this debate and said on the campaign trail in late-February that “there’s strong evidence” that a preservative in vaccines is fuelling the dramatic rise in autism, [8]. Dr. Boyd Haley, who testified before Congress as one of the leading experts in the US on the effects of the mercury in vaccines, has reported that his research had led him to conclude that some children are genetically predisposed to storing mercury in their brains and that the cumulative effect of this leads to neurological disorders, including autism, [9].

More alarmingly still, the brochure has a section on “The Wart Virus and Cancer” which stated that: “Two vaccines are now available: Glaxo SmithKline vaccines protects against HPV 16 and 18 and Merck vaccine protects against HPV 6, 11, 16 & 18.” For those who didn’t know, Merck’s HPV vaccine has been associated with thousands of adverse reactions and been linked to a number of deaths, [11]. Worse still is that this suffering may all have been for nothing, as FDA documents have revealed that the FDA has been aware that the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) has no direct link to cervical cancer, [12].

One of Merck’s top scientist, Dr. Maurice Hilleman, who developed the Mumps, Rubella and Measles vaccines, himself has stated: “Vaccines are the bargain basement technology of the 20th century” and during the same interview, which is online in the documentary by Dr Len Horowitz – ‘In Lies We Trust,’ he admits that Merck has been injecting cancer viruses (SV40 and others) into millions of vaccine recipients, [13]. Yes, that’s right – go and hear Dr Hilleman for yourself here:

To conclude, while the booklet may help garner revenue for vaccine makers, it has not acknowledged the potential cost to the recipients of their products and if anything leaves one to question what the intended purposes of being vaccinated really are.
