Vaccines and Herd Immunity
34:05 "There is this sort of idea that we must prevent ALL infectious diseases in childhood with the mass use of multiple vaccines (in this case chickenpox vaccine) but is that really going to produce long-term good health on an individual or community basis? Or have we put blinders on, and I mean ‘we’ as a society, and become so afraid of all experience with infectious disease that we’re willing to use more and more and more vaccines where there are still so many question marks about both the effectiveness of that intervention as well as the safety of it?"

When I was in medical school, we were taught that all of the childhood vaccines lasted a lifetime. This thinking existed for over 70 years. It was not until relatively recently that it was discovered that most of these vaccines lost their effectiveness 2 to 10 years after being given. What this means is that at least half the population, that is the baby boomers, have had no vaccine-induced immunity against any of these diseases for which they had been vaccinated very early in life. In essence, at least 50% or more of the population was unprotected for decades.
If we listen to present-day wisdom, we are all at risk of resurgent massive epidemics should the vaccination rate fall below 95%. Yet, we have all lived for at least 30 to 40 years with 50% or less of the population having vaccine protection. That is, herd immunity has not existed in this country for many decades and no resurgent epidemics have occurred. Vaccine-induced herd immunity is a lie used to frighten doctors, public-health officials, other medical personnel, and the public into accepting vaccinations. --Click here for full article
