Meningococcal Death Rate Increases Since MeNZB?

Why Has Meningococcal Death Rate Increased Since The Introduction of Vaccine?


Ron Law & Barbara Sumner Burstyn

If you had something to hide, how would you go about it? Spend $1/4 million on half page ads in every news paper in NZ to distract the populace from the coming storm?

Ministry of Health data reveals the meningococcal disease case fatality rate has increased by 250 percent since the MeNZB vaccine was rolled out, resulting in 13 unexplained deaths.

Do these figures represent complacency, diversion of health care resources, mutation? (See Chiron Dumps MeNZB Vaccine Trialled In NZ – Scoop 13 November 2006 ) or a combination of all three?

n.b: The Norwegian government has just announced it has banned the sale of one million doses of their MenB vaccine to France because of safety concerns?

Meanwhile, despite the Norwegian government banning the export of over a million doses of their unsafe meningococcal B vaccine destined for France, 4,000 healthy babies are injected with the equivalent MeNZB toxin in New Zealand every week!
