Chickenpox Vaccine & Death – New US Government Study

A newly published study from the US Centers for Disease Control is further formal confirmation chickenpox vaccine damages natural immunity and causes the more serious highly painful potentially fatal condition of shingles: The incidence and clinical characteristics of herpes zoster among children and adolescents after implementation of varicella vaccination.

It is  long and well known in numerous studies that shingles cases and deaths in adults and the elderly will increase as natural immunity wanes as a result of the chickenpox vaccine. It is however perplexing that the US CDC study authors declare themselves mystified by the increase in teenage shingles cases shown by their study.

Shingles is a serious painful condition in adults which causes death in some cases. Chickenpox is normally a mild disease in children which most children used to contract and gain natural immunity from.  Natural childhood diseases are known to prime childrens’ immune systems for future disease immunity.

The expansion of vaccination programmes worldwide across all ages is not health but marketing driven as the drug industry targets universal worldwide multiple vaccines for all for life as a new lucrative business model:- Pharma 2020: The vision PriceWaterhouse Coopers, New Report Forecasts More Than Doubling of Vaccine Sales by 2013 Reuters 11 June 2009, Kids’ vaccine market set to quadruple – By Anna Lewcock, Drug Researcher 20-Nov-2007.

And do vaccines cause autistic conditions?  If you read nothing else we strongly recommend you read this: PDF Download – Text of May 5th 2008 email from US HRSA to Sharyl Attkisson of CBS News].  In it the US Health Resources Services Administration [HRSA] state to CBS News reporter Sharyl Attkisson

We have compensated cases in which children exhibited an encephalopathy, or general brain disease. Encephalopathy may be accompanied by a medical progression of an array of symptoms including autistic behavior, autism, or seizures.

Despite all the lies and deceit by health official worldwide, the question “do vaccines cause autism” was answered after the Hannah  Poling story broke in the USA in February 2008 [see CHS article here].  Hannah developed an autistic condition after 9 vaccines administered the same day.  Under the media spotlight numerous US health officials and agencies conceded on broadcast US nationwide TV news from CBS and CNN. Full details with links to the original sources can be found in this CHS article: Vaccination Causes Autism – Say US Government & Merck’s Director of Vaccines. [Blue Text added 10 April 2011]

It is well-known that the introduction of childhood vaccines pushes disease incidence  into older age groups where the effects of the diseases can be more serious.  A similar effect occurs for example with mumps vaccine: Government Risks Male Sterility As Mumps Vaccine Fails – April 11, 2009 by childhealthsafety

Similar concerns about the chickenpox vaccine were reported by the UK Health Protection Agency when considering  whether to introduce UK chickenpox vaccination.

The CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices also withdrew its support for the combined MMR chickenpox vaccine ProQuad because it causes children higher rates of  serious adverse  reactions:  MMR Kids Vaccine Linked to Fever-Related Convulsions – Associated Press via Fox News – February 28, 2008

The new CDC study, far from recording unexplained effects, further corroborates these known and serious consequences of the chickenpox vaccination programme.

A press release for a UK Health Protection Agency report states:

If a chickenpox vaccine were to be added to the childhood immunisation programme concerns have been raised that there would be an increase of shingles cases in adults as a result. This is because people who have had chickenpox are less likely to have shingles later in life if they  have been exposed occasionally to the chickenpox virus (for example through their children) as this exposure acts as a booster…

The modelling suggested that a two dose schedule at the levels of coverage likely to be achieved in the UK would lead to an increase of at least 20% of shingles in the medium term (approximately 15-20 years). This increase could be partially, but not completely, offset by introduction of a vaccination against shingles among those aged 60+.

Albert Jan van Hoek, who performed the research for the Health Protection Agency, said; “Our models suggest that vaccination would reduce the burden of chickenpox in the young. However, it will lead to an increase in shingles in the medium term in adults because they will not get that ‘boosting’ effect from being in contact with cases of chickenpox.

The new CDC sponsored study states:

Varicella vaccine substantially decreases the risk of herpes zoster among vaccinated children and its widespread use will likely reduce overall herpes zoster burden in the United States. The increase in herpes zoster incidence among 10- to 19-year-olds could not be confidently explained and needs to be confirmed from other data sources.

That these effects have long been known is demonstrated by Dr Gary Goldman in Medical Veritas, the International Journal of Toxicology and other journals:-

Interestingly, the published shingles (herpes zoster) incidence rates among vaccinated and unvaccinated children, as well as adolescents reported by VASP/CDC authors in this current study nicely agree with prior research findings by Goldman who served as Research Analyst for the Varicella Active Surveillance Project (VASP) in 2002 and published the incidence rates in 2005 (Universal Varicella Vaccination: Efficacy Trends and Effect on Herpes Zoster. Goldman GS. International Journal of Toxicology 2005 Jul/Aug; 24(4):203-213

A Medical Veritas press release reports:

In historical shingles studies, shingles incidence generally increases with age.  In his 1965 paper, Dr. Hope-Simpson suggested, “The peculiar age distribution of zoster may in part reflect the frequency with which the different age groups encounter cases of varicella and because of the ensuing boost to their antibody protection have their attacks of zoster postponed.”

Lending support to this hypothesis that contact with children with chickenpox boosts adult cell-mediated immunity to help postpone or suppress shingles, is the study by Thomas et al. (Contacts with varicella or with children and protection against herpes zoster in adults: a case-control study. Thomas SL, Wheeler JG, Hall AJ. Lancet 2002 Aug 31;360(9334):678-82) that reported adults in households with children, had lower rates of herpes zoster (HZ) than households without children. Also, the study by Terada et al. (Incidence of HZ in pediatricians and history of reexposure to varicella-zoster virus in patients with HZ. Kansenshiogaku Zasshi 1995 Aug.; 69(8):908-912) indicated that pediatricians reflected incidence rates from ½ to 1/8 that of the general population their age.  Older parents, in their late 50s, who no longer have children in their household, demonstrate HZ at an incidence rate of 550/100,000 person-years. (Of course, those very elderly adults do experience a sharp rise in shingles incidence due to age-related decline in immunity.)

An earlier Medical Veritas press release warned of the increasing mortality and financial costs resulting from the chicken-pox vaccination programme:

Dr. Goldman’s findings have corroborated other independent researchers who estimate that if chickenpox were to be nearly eradicated by vaccination, the higher number of shingles cases could continue in the U.S. for up to 50 years; and that while death rates from chickenpox are already very low, any deaths prevented by vaccination will be offset by deaths from increasing shingles disease.  Another recent peer-reviewed article authored by Dr. Goldman and published in Vaccine presents a cost-benefit analysis of the universal chicken pox (varicella) vaccination program. Goldman points out that during a 50-year time span, there would be an estimated additional 14.6 million (42%) shingles cases among adults aged less than 50 years, presenting society with a substantial additional medical cost burden of $4.1 billion. This translates into $80 million annually, utilizing an estimated mean healthcare provider cost of $280 per shingles case.

  2. “Among children aged<10 years, those with a history of varicella vaccination had a 4 to 12 times lower risk for developing herpes zoster compared with children with history of varicella disease."

    That's a direct quote from the CDC study you opened this post with. Did you read it?

    [ED: Do you believe what the US CDC says? Here is a direct quote from one of our articles “US Research Fraud, Tax Dollars And Italian Vaccine Mercury Study“:

    “Documents disclosed here under US Freedom of Information show the US Centers for Disease Control [CDC] spends US tax dollars in foreign countries on studies to claim the vaccination programmes they promote for US children are safe when they know the results of the studies will produce false and misleading negative results.”

    Did you read it? Obviously not. We endeavour to cite reliable sources. The US CDC is not a reliable source. It is as reliable as Wikipedia. LOL.

    And this is a quote from the same CDC study you quote:-

    “The increase in herpes zoster incidence among 10- to 19-year-olds could not be confidently explained and needs to be confirmed from other data sources.”

    So how come a well-known phenomenon associated with vaccination of pushing childhood diseases into the older population where they are more harmful suddenly for the US CDC cannot “be confidently explained”? Answer: the US CDC is not a reliable source of information.]

  6. The lesions that you can get from shingles are of course annoying, itchy and can be quite painful at times. ,

  7. The authors credibility is reduced by introducing the old chestnut of autism and vaccines, a theory that has been totally discredited by the scientivally literate community almost a decade ago. Indeed, the former UK doctor Mr Andrew Wakefield who did the original research was convicted of medical fraud and struck off as a doctor in the UK. All the researchers who co-sugned the original paper have stated that they were hoodeinked by Wakefields use of rigged data. Incidentally he now works as a in the USA peddling his rubbish; this perhaps woukd be a good target for your blog. Incidentally the driver for his fraudulent research was a substantial payment by US lawyers looking for evidence on which to sue for vaccine-induced autism in the US courts. The fraud was successful in that payments were made in US courts on the basis of his research.
    If the author of this piece were scientifically informed he would be aware of the recent research indicating the propensity to autism can be seen in children as young as a few weeks old. However you don’t really need this evidence, as autism existed before vaccination programmes.
    As for the older people getting shingles, this can be addressed by a vaccination later in life.
    The author dismisses the small percentage of children killed by chicken-pix, but for the child concerned its a 100% death. Ask the parents of the dead children their views.

    [ED: Heh. This commenter’s credibility is reduced by his inability to spell [eg. “scientivally literate”], his poor grammar and poor literacy – like failing to read:
