I can’t make this stuff up. One day after I pointed out that the CDC caused/found a ‘pseudo-epidemic‘, this report popped up on my Pediatric Radar Screen:
The Office of the Inspector General analyzed a sample of programs with the highest volume of vaccines ordered in 2010 and found that vaccines stored by 76% of providers were exposed to inappropriate temperatures for at least 5 cumulative hours over the 2 weeks. (No word on how many OVER that number of hours).
Medical News reporter Kristina Fiori story wrote, “Childhood vaccines administered via a free federal program may be inappropriately stored, which could affect their potency and efficacy, according to government inspectors… The American Academy of Pediatrics, which wasn’t involved in the study, said in a statement that it ‘encourages all practices to continue monitoring vaccine storage and handling… The AAP noted that despite these issues, the vaccines “were not found to be unsafe, and revaccination of children is not needed.”
So, the Academy, which wasn’t involved in the study, knows that the vaccines are safe. How do they know that?! The story went on to explain that although the potency could have been affected, the poor kids who got the stuff won’t have to get an extra shot. Hooray for those children. I wonder, though, if the shots were incorrectly stored and administered to a more affluent community, if the CDC would have made the same recommendations. I mean, they said the inoculation might not work. If the children need them so much, why wouldn’t they need the missing dose? Maybe it’s the $3.6 billion that is paid to those public programs.
Then, there is this statement: “The report also revealed that 13 providers stored expired vaccines together with unexpired ones, increasing the risk of handing out the wrong vaccine.” Are you kidding me? Has anyone gone out and looked at the outcome of those children who received the expired or incorrect products? We’re in the middle of an autism epidemic now, and this could be very important information. Does anyone think that the “studies that have shown vaccine safety” used old or incorrect product?
I won’t belabor this point any longer other than to officially complain that, as a pediatrician and as a citizen, I find this stuff appalling. As an advocate of sensible vaccination protocols, these kinds of revelations make it really difficult to convince the public that they are protected or safe.
