Graphs: MeNZB Facts Speak for Themselves

MeNZB Facts Speak for Themselves


Ron Law & Barbara Sumner Burstyn

NOTE: TVNZ's Sunday Program has provided email notification that it intends to broadcast the Norwegian Documentary "THE VACCINE EXPERIMENT - In The Service of Good" this Sunday at 7.30pm.

Contrary to popular belief, the Ministry of Health's own data shows that the MeNZB vaccine has had little or no impact on the natural decline in meningococcal disease.

ACT Health Spokesperson, Heather Roy has made the astonishing claim that "the MeNZB vaccine is saving lives" and that "The meningitis vaccine has seen a dramatic decrease in the number of deaths of New Zealand babies, toddlers and young people."

There is no scientific evidence to support such a claim... we let the Ministry of Health's own data speak for itself in this graphical essay.

Howard Davis: Kenneth Branagh’s Black & White Belfast

Branagh has assembled a wonderful cast, including Ciarán Hinds, a gently formidable actor who well deserves his Oscar nomination, and Judi Dench, who steals every scene she’s in. More>>


Howard Davis: Dennis Villeneuve’s Dune - A Brief History

So many elements of Herbert’s novel have since become tropes of popular SciFi that Villeneuve’s film sometimes seems deceptively derivative. What makes all this nonsense essential viewing is his astonishing visual sensibility. More>>


Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which has been republished by Te Papa press. More>>
