Minister Misleads Kim Hill and Public

Press Release

Minister Misleads Kim Hill and Public


Ron Law & Barbara Sumner Burstyn

"The Minister of Health has mislead the public by claiming on Kim Hill's TV programme last night that making the MeNZB(tm) vaccine was akin to making the flu vaccine; the claim is another example of junk science used to undergird a mass medical experiment," say risk & policy analyst Ron Law and researcher/writer Barbara Sumner Burstyn.

If vaccines were as simple to make as that then we would simply substitute the bird flu virus, or the common cold virus, and we have new and effective vaccines. Science does not work like that; junk science does.

The Minister said that other countries such as Australia had done the same thing and introduced similar meningococcal vaccines there. This is a lie fed to her by desperate public health officials. Australia has never introduced an outer membrane protein vaccine such as MeNZB(tm).

Ministry of Health officials and advisors know that vaccines against the meningococcal B strain can not be made the same way as vaccines against other meningococcal strains such as A, C, W, Y and so a new type of vaccine has been attempted.

The Minister has mislead the public into believing that many other similar countries are using similar vaccines to the MeNZB(tm) vaccine.

Not a single country outside of Cuba and a couple of Latin American countries have used meningococcal B vaccines in mass vaccination programmes, and not a single one has licensed such vaccines... not even Norway where the MeNZB(tm) originated and where they rejected their own vaccine for mass public health use after thoroughly testing it.

"Something is terribly wrong with the Ministry of Health's case supporting the experimental MeNZB(tm) vaccine when they knowingly resort to feeding the Minister of Health false information who in turn feeds it to the public in the name of science;" says Ron Law, "terribly wrong!"
