Children in Two States Get Vaccine Strain Measles from MMR Vaccine

Children in Two States Get Vaccine Strain Measles from MMR Vaccine

Media sources in Michigan reported in April 2019 that two children in the state who were believed to have measles turned out not to have disease, after all. Genotype lab testing of the measles virus identified in the children’s blood  was conducted and it was found to match the attenuated (weakened) vaccine strain measles virus in the MMR (measles, mumps, rubella). The children did not get infected with wild-type measles.1

Based on that conclusion, health officials described the measles-like symptoms (fever, skin rash, dry cough, runny nose, sore throat, inflamed eyes and white spots with bluish-white centers on a red background inside the mouth on the inner lining of the cheek) as a vaccine reaction. Both children had recently been given the MMR vaccine and were mistakenly clinically diagnosed with wild-type measles when, in fact, they were experiencing signs of vaccine strain measles from recently receiving the live attenuated measles vaccine (MMR or MMR-V). Unlike wild-type measles infections, which can be transmitted from person to person, public health officials maintain that vaccine strain measles only affects the recently vaccinated person and cannot be spread from person to person.1 2

The product manufacturer insert for Merck & Co.’s ProQuad (MMR-V) vaccine, which combines measles, mumps, rubella and varicella zoster vaccines into one shot, acknowledges that the vaccine can cause measles symptoms.1 2

The ProQuad vaccine insert lists as serious complications both measles and atypical measles, as well as encephalitis (swelling of the brain), sclerosing panencephalitis, aseptic meningitis, pneumonia, respiratory infection, infection, varicella (vaccine strain), influenza, herpes zoster, orchitis, epididymitis, cellulitis, skin infection, retinitis, bronchitis, parotitis, sinusitis, impetigo, herpes simplex, candidiasis and rhinitis.1 3 4

On May 23, 2019, New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) corrected itself and said that a child who had been diagnosed with measles the previous week also did not have measles but rather a reaction to the vaccine that resembled a measles virus infection. Vaccine strain measles infection is not a “reaction” in the classic sense, as live attenuated vaccines like MMR contain weakened viruses that infect and replicate in the body to stimulate artificial immunity without causing the wild type viral disease.5

The Associated Press reported:

Additional lab work indicated the child’s symptoms were likely due to a vaccine reaction from the measles, mumps, rubella vaccine—also known as MMR. The child had been vaccinated several days before starting to show symptoms.6

New Hampshire’s state epidemiologist Benjamin Chan, MD, MPH said that the child had an unusually strong reaction to the measles or MMR vaccine. “Over the last five years, probably close to 50,000 doses of the MMR vaccine have been administered to children around the state and we’ve never had reports of this type of reaction before,” Dr. Chan said.7

“More serious or extensive reactions that resemble a real (i.e. wild-type) measles virus infection, as was seen in this child, are very rare,” DHHS said in a statement. According to DHHS, “The scientific literature has found no confirmed cases of human-to-human transmission of the vaccine strain of the measles virus.”8

That does not mean it cannot happen.

As Barbara Loe Fisher of the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) noted in the 2014 referenced report The Emerging Risks of Live Virus & Virus Vectored Vaccines: Vaccine Strain Virus Infection, Shedding & Transmission:

There is no active surveillance and testing for evidence of vaccine strain live virus shedding, transmission and infection among populations routinely being given multiple doses of live virus vaccines, including measles vaccine. Therefore, it is unknown exactly how many vaccinated children and adults in the U.S. or other countries are shedding and transmitting vaccine strain live viruses.9

The apparent lack of evidence that the vaccine strain measles virus can spread from human to human seems to be what public health officials view as the critical distinguishing feature between vaccine strain virus infections and wild-type measles virus infections. Perhaps it explains why so many health officials and physicians prefer to call a vaccine strain measles virus infection a vaccine reaction rather than measles, so as not to confuse the public.

Vaccine strain measles can cause rash and other symptoms of its wild-type cousin, but, since it is believed to lack the capacity to spread from human to human, it is not considered a public health threat. Still, ironically, it is a potential side effect of the live attenuated MMR and MMR-V vaccines.

    If the lab came back MEASLES-the children had the MEASLES. Measles like reaction is MEASLES. They were infected by the vaccine. If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck-it’s a duck. I don’t know if that is a stock photo but look at this picture of a measles like reaction from the vaccine in a young man after his MMR:
    https://www.vaccinationinformationnetwork.com/my-sons-vaccine-related-measles/.
    There are 7 photo of his body. This kid had all the symptoms of measles. Measles-like symptoms is Measles just like AFM is called Polio like symptoms, clinically indistinguishable from Polio. Change a name you change how people look at it.

      The CDC states that 5% of those vaccinated with the MMR have the Measles like rash ( vaccine strain of Measles like you stated). Some studies done the vaccine strain of Measles infection is as high as 8%.

      Unfortunately most Doctors will not report it as Measles but as a rash.

        Unfortunately most Doctors will not report it as Measles but as a rash.

        I have relatives in the medical profession and if they see a child with all the symptoms and labs as measles that is vaccinated recently-it doesn’t matter if they (Dr.) reports it as measles, which it is-just from the vaccine, once the health dept, who they report to sees the child’s vaccination status-the case is called measles like illness or some such nonsense. The SPIN the CDC & Pharma continue to push is children cannot get infected by the vaccine nor can the vaccine shed. Some states are reporting in the current outbreak that some of the infected children are vaccinated. I wonder just how many are? Heath dept. and the CDC can do that quick PCR test and give that info to the public but they won’t. It will interfere with their global fear mongering campaign.

    Ok….

    I get it now.

    If 5 kids out of 330,000 get measles in New York, it is an “epidemic”

    If 2 of them turn out to have a “vaccine reaction”…. the formula suddenly changes

    “of 50,000 doses in the past Five Years” ???

    Why no….. “Of the 1600 doses given in the past WEEK, we had a case of measles”

    But it isn’t said that way.

    Going back to 5 kids = Epidemic

    If the total changes to 4 or 3 because some were deemed a vaccine reaction… then is it STILL and epidemic?

    Or is it now a “slight epidemic” or a “horrifically out of control situation”?

    How many “vaccine reactions” does it take to be considered a “Vaccine reaction epidemic”?

    Well of course there’s no EVIDENCE that vaccine strain measles can be spread. What is not measured cannot be used as evidence.

    Well nice to know the false facts about vaccine shedding is still strong in the medical industry. Uuummm I have done extensive research for the past 2 almost 2 and half years now and vaccines really do shed the diseases people are vaccinated with. The four major culprits of shedding is the Dtap, Tdap, MMR and Stupid Flu shot. Why do you think for the last two years with the stupid CDC and the stupid world health organization’s fear mongering propoganda tons of people have run to get the flu vaccine only to end up with a so called epidemic over the winter months where as before the stupid fear mongering propoganda people weren’t really worried about the flu so they didn’t run as much to clinics for the flu shot and then you didn’t hear on the news about a stupid epidemic. Every time it is winter now I stay away from people and become a hermit for fear that I will run into someone who was dumb enough to get the flu shot. Before I knew about vaccines I was one of the dumb ones that got a flu vaccine back in 2015 and I ended up so sick and had health problems for a year after that, that was the last time I ever got vaccinated and I haven’t had a health problem since so there is no way they will ever convince me that vaccines are a good thing because they are lowsy and they make people feel lowsy after getting them. I also found out that 14 holistic doctors were murdered because they found an enzyme called nagalese that is in all the vaccines that causes cancer and once that cancer is formed also causes tumors to grow rapidly because that enzyme blocks the body’s ability to absorb vitamin D.

    this big pharma slight of hand and tongue trickery has to be stopped. first, we must return liability to the vaccine manufacturers. if that doesn’t happen first…big pharma will continue to peddle its snack oil. we must focus on their bottom line. hit them in their huge wallet. there is more than one way to stop a problem and focusing purely on science or religion hasn’t worked so far. gotta think outside the box or civil disobedience will ensue.

    Even if vaccine caused measles can’t be spread, why Try to eradicate natural measles when either way a person infected will display the same symptoms dot-dot-dot the only difference is wild type measles has many health benefits, artificial vaccine induced does not. Not to mention all of the health care cost involved, exposure to foreign DNA and toxins within a vaccine, etc. Seems like a big interference with nature, for no reason whatsoever in the US.

    Pharma/CDC and all its’ corrupt connection are working really really hard to stop the flow of information from Vaccine Awareness people. It’s becoming more obvious that the more they vaccinate, the more measles, mumps and pertussis outbreaks occur. This is why health dept in states where they are outbreaks have an information blackout going on-like in NY. They don’t want the public to know exactly what viral strain the outbreaks wild type or vaccine. 2 years to get definitive information on the Disney Outbreak that 38% of the people infected were infected with a vaccine strain-which I’m sure they are calling a vaccine reaction. The technology to discern what measles genotype viruses quickly are being spread and if they are testing- they aren’t releasing that info to the public.
    “We have developed a real-time reverse transcription-PCR (RT-PCR) method specific for genotype A measles virus (MeV) (MeVA RT-quantitative PCR [RT-qPCR]) that can identify measles vaccine strains rapidly, with high throughput, and without the need for sequencing to determine the genotype: “Rapid Identification of Measles Virus Vaccine Genotype by Real-Time PCR, Journal of Clinical Microbiology,

    How many in the current outbreak are infected with a vaccine strain and if that is determined will they be eliminated from the measles count? That’s a conundrum for the CDC If they eliminated all the measles like illness from the vaccine count than the numbers drop-goes against their fear mongering campaign. Also, if they remove these infected from the count and tell the public well, you can get a measles like illness with all the characteristics of measles-fever, rash, upper respiratory distress, stomach ache light sensitivity etc-people will think if the vaccine does all that and it mimics the measles, why get the vaccine? Isn’t a vaccine suppose to keep a person from getting sick? People may begin to use some critical thinking- getting the measles naturally which the probability is low because a good immune system can protect or get the virus filled vaccine which increases ones chances of getting sick. Even if they don’t get the MLI they will probably feel like crap for a few days.

    Then you have this:
    -Arch Intern Med. 1994 Aug 22;154(16):1815-20.
    Failure to reach the goal of measles elimination. Apparent paradox of measles infections in immunized persons.
    Poland GA1, Jacobson RM.
    Conclusion: The apparent paradox is that as measles immunization rates rise to high levels in a population, measles becomes a disease of immunized persons.
    The more people you vaccinate, the more outbreaks there will be:
    PLoS study: “Difficulties in eliminating measles and controlling rubella and mumps: a cross-sectional study of a first measles and rubella vaccination and a second measles, mumps, and rubella vaccination,” has brought to light the glaring ineffectiveness of two measles vaccines (measles–rubella (MR) or measles–mumps–rubella (MMR) ) in fulfilling their widely claimed promise of preventing outbreaks in highly vaccine compliant populations.

    China has one of the most vaccination compliant populations in the world. In fact, measles vaccine is mandatory. So why have they had over 700 measles outbreaks from 2009 and 2012 alone? “The reported coverage of the measles-rubella (MR) or measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine is greater than 99.0% in Zhejiang province. However, the incidence of measles, mumps, and rubella remains high.”

    New Study: “Assessing measles vaccine failure in Tianjin, China,”
    Brings back into the foreground the under reported paradox of measles outbreaks in some of the most highly vaccinated populations in the world: the study reveals that vaccination coverage is as high as 97% for the 1st and 2nd dose of measles-containing vaccine (MCV). In some children they added a 3rd shot but the cases continue to increase. The failure rate is 26%. 26% failure rate in those receiving 2 or more measles-containing vaccines is not only surprising, but demonstrates how the present-day myth that receipt of the measles vaccinae (including multiple “boosters”) equates to bona fide immunity (or any vaccine, for that matter) is no longer tenable, as judged by the evidence.

    I read an article that the CDC is scared of the US losing it’s Measles elimination status from the WHO. That’s not all they are afraid of.

    Vaccinated child had Maine’s first case of measles in 2 years, say health officials

    The case was confirmed Monday in a school-aged child in Somerset County, and the agency says others may have been exposed at schools in Madison and the hospital in Skowhegan.

    -“The child is vaccinated, did not have any serious complications, and is fully recovered from the disease,” the agency said in a news release Tuesday. “Maine CDC notified the facilities where potential exposure occurred and is working with them to ensure potentially exposed individuals are made aware.”
    https://www.pressherald.com/2019/05/21/maine-cdc-reports-first-measles-case-during-nationwide-outbreak/

    Th reminder of the article goe on to “splain” how contagious measles is, how measles cases are up etc. Same old same old. Distracte away from the fact that the vaccine doesn’t work, sheds or makes a vaccinated child contagious. Anything to exonerate the vaccine.

    I have been diagnosed with hepatitis B. My HBsAg is positive. HbE is negative and anti-HbE is positive. HCB is negative. Viral load is 7466 IU/ml, and copies/ml is 43452. My symptoms was deep pain in my stomach that i can’t even stand up straight. Second, i found out the yellow colour in the edge of my pupil. Third, loss of appetite to eat. Early this year she started on organic/natural HBsAg treatment from Best Health Herbal Centre (ww w. besthealthherbalcentre. co m). The treatment worked very effectively and all my symptoms simply disappeared completely after 6 weeks of usage and My family doctor confirmed am HBsAg negative. I hope this information will spread.

    There was also one removed case in Washington State.

    https://www.clark.wa.gov/public-health/measles-investigation

    “On Feb. 12, Public Health removed one previously confirmed case after additional testing revealed the case was actually experiencing benign vaccine rash. That case – an unimmunized child 1 to 10 years old – received one dose of measles-mumps-rubella, or MMR. Public Health also removed the exposure locations associated with this case since the vaccine virus cannot be transmitted to others.”
