MeNZB Approaches Another Milestone

MeNZB Approaches Another Milestone
Press release
Ron Law
Risk & policy Analyst

The current cluster of meningococcal disease cases in the Wellington region has resulted in the MeNZB vaccine reaching a sad milestone. One hundred New Zealand children who were promised 'protection' by being fully vaccinated with the MeNZB vaccine have now contracted meningococcal disease.

Unpublicised research published by the Ministry of Health also shows that the MeNZB vaccine actually increases the risk of babies getting the epidemic strain of meningococcal disease and does not protect babies as promised... why has the MOH failed to disclose that fact to the public despite knowing for the best part of 12 months?

Parents need to be told that in choosing to vaccinate their precious babies with MeNZB they are actually increasing the risk of harm, not decreasing it as promised.

Please see http://www.scoopco.nz/stories/GE0707/S00132.htm for a list of questions to ask the Minister of Health about the failed $250 million MeNZB experiment.
