New MOH Data Reveals MeNZB Has Dramatic Effect

New MOH Data Reveals MeNZB Has Dramatic Effect on Epidemic


Ron Law & Barbara Sumner Burstyn

The latest figures released by the Ministry of Health today confirm that the MeNZB vaccine used, in what the new Chief of Bioethics at UNESCO described as an unethical experiment on hundreds of thousands of children, continues to have a melo-dramatic impact on meningococcal disease in New Zealand.

"The claimed success of the MeNZB vaccine is nothing more than a free ride on the back of the ongoing natural decline," says Risk & Policy Analyst, Ron Law.
