Investigation: The Meningococcal Gold Rush

Media Release
Investigation: The Meningococcal Gold Rush
Barbara Sumner Burstyn & Ron Law

In announcing a major thorough investigation ( published at http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0502/S00064.htm ), we reveal that the circumstances surrounding the policy and science of the meningococcal vaccine, MeNZB(tm) are not what the public has been lead to believe.

We would invite you to read our investigative article, but to do so critically. We would then welcome informed debate in the media.

"Not only has the Ministry of Health, via the Minister of Health, misinformed Cabinet, but Ministry of Health facts relating to alleged effectiveness of the MeNZB(tm) vaccine have been exaggerated and manipulated to assist a good-news spin machine," says Barbara Sumner Burstyn.

"Furthermore," says Barbara, "informed consent would appear to have been withheld from parents and guardians who were unaware aware that Chiron was undertaking what appears to be unapproved trials of there meningococcal C vaccine that is not licensed for use in New Zealand nor the USA."

Not only has the Minister been misinformed by the Ministry of Health, her staff clearly have never checked validity of Ministry claims.

New Zealand's meningococcal vaccine story, as unravelled through analysis of previously secret documents obtained under the Official Information Act, reveals that the New Zealand government, media and public have been misled and manipulated by officials, advisors and scientists alike.

As a result of this manipulation, the government has committed an unprecedented 200 million taxpayer dollars to a mass vaccination experiment of 1.15 million New Zealand children with an untested and experimental vaccine.

"Despite being reassured by a bevy of pro-vaccine and vaccine manufacturer sponsored experts and none-less than the Minister of Health herself that the MeNZB(tm) vaccine is thoroughly tested and proven to be safe and effective, we reveal that Chiron's MeNZB(tm) vaccine was never used in the trails used to approve its license," says Ron Law. "We reveal that despite assurances, there is no evidence that the MeNZB(tm) vaccine will actually work as promised."

We believe that the magnitude of policy, regulatory and scientific misconduct is such that not only should vaccination with this vaccine be halted forthwith, but that the meningococcal vaccination program should be independently audited and the circumstances surrounding the development and implementation of the program subjected to a full Royal Commission of Inquiry.

We would welcome the opportunity to discuss the issues raised with you.
