“Vaccine-Derived” Polio on the Rise

“Vaccine-Derived” Polio on the Rise

The Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) last week reported that there have been a total of 22 confirmed cases of vaccine-derived polio paralysis, thus far, in 2019. The latest two cases involve a person from Sichuan province in China and a person in Angola. Other evidence of circulating vaccine strain poliovirus type 2 (cVDPV2) has emerged with vaccine-derived polio cases identified this year in Nigeria (9), the Democratic Republic of the Congo (6), Somalia (3), Ethiopia (1) and Niger (1).1

Vaccine-derived polio occurs when a recently vaccinated person contracts vaccine strain polio or attenuated (weakened) poliovirus in the oral polio vaccine (OPV) is excreted or “shed” in saliva, urine and other secretions of a recently vaccinated person’s body and infects close contacts, who develop vaccine strain polio paralysis.2 3 4

As Barbara Loe Fisher of the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) noted in the 2014 report The Emerging Risks of Live Virus & Virus Vectored Vaccines: Vaccine Strain Virus Infection, Shedding & Transmission, the “widespread circulation of vaccine strain live polioviruses” can cause cases of “vaccine strain paralytic polio when live vaccine strain polioviruses mutate and revert to neurovirulence.”4

“Immunocompromised individuals are at special risk for vaccine strain polio paralysis and for chronic vaccine strain polio infection, shedding and transmission,” Loe Fisher said.4

According to the GPEI, there were 104 cVDPV2 cases in 2018 in Nigeria (34), Papua New Guinea (26), the DRC (20), Somalia (12), Niger (10), Indonesia (1) and Mozambique (1), compared to only 33 cases of “wild” polio caused by wild poliovirus type 1 (WPV1).1 In other words, last year there were more than three times as many people who were reported to have contracted polio from the live polio vaccine than from wild type polio.1

This problem of children or their close contacts contracting vaccine strain polio from the attenuated live-virus OPV still used in countries around the world has raised the level of concern within the GPEI that the OPV itself is producing new and more virulent strains of the paralytic disease.5

This may help explain the so-called “vaccine hesitancy” that the World Health Organization (WHO) has cited as one of the top 10 “threats to global health” in 2019. It should come as no surprise that parents might be wary and want to avoid giving their children vaccines that are known to cause the very diseases they are designed to prevent.6

The GPEI is a public-private partnership involving national governments and five international organizations, including the WHO, Rotary International, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.7

    The Gates Foundation has reasons for its support of overseas vaccination efforts. Pharmaceutical industry developers of new “experimental” vaccines can use children in developing nations as “lab animals” to test them, often with frightening adverse events, like multiple permanent injuries and death.
    Working in concert with these pharmaceutical companies, Gates can pretend to be a benefactor, meanwhile getting huge tax deductions for his “charitable work”. And then he calls those who raise questions about vaccine safety “baby killers.”

    This post doesn’t call “vaccine-derived polio” AFM. Is it the same illness?

    If so, why aren’t the cases from the United States included in these numbers?

    This leads me to believe that you are not talking about the same illness.

      This post doesn’t call “vaccine-derived polio” AFM. Is it the same illness?

      Same illness. It’s the name game. It was also a way to deceive the public from learning certain facts about the marketing campaign and the deception perpetuated against the American people in the Polo campaign of the 1950’s. Here are some statements from Dr. Suzanne Humphries excellent paper on Polio.

      -Now it is admitted in the medical literature that other viruses can cause polio, yet few people on the street have any idea.

      -Prior to 1954, the following undoubtedly hid behind the name “poliomyelitis”: Transverse Myelitis, viral or “aseptic” meningitis, Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS)- (what Franklin Delano Roosevelt had), Chinese Paralytic syndrome, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, epidemic cholera, cholera morbus, spinal meningitis, spinal apoplexy, inhibitory palsy, intermittent fever, famine fever, worm fever, bilious remittent fever, ergotism, post-polio syndrome, acute flaccid paralysis(AFP).

      -Included under the umbrella term “Acute Flaccid Paralysis” are Poliomyelitis, Transverse Myelitis, Guillain-Barré syndrome, enteroviral encephalopathy, traumatic neuritis, Reye’s syndrome etc.

      These are technically called Enteroviruses. Some info on enteroviruses from MedicineNet:

      -Enterovirus: A virus that enters the body through the gastrointestinal tract and thrives there, often moving on to attack the nervous system. The polioviruses are enteroviruses.
      (in other words these are gut illnesses)

      -Enteroviruses are small viruses that are made of ribonucleic acid (RNA) and protein. In addition to the three different polioviruses, there are a number of non-polio enteroviruses that can cause disease in humans, including the Coxsackieviruses (Coxsackie A viruses and Coxsackie B viruses), echoviruses, and other enteroviruses.

      -Infections caused by enteroviruses are most likely to occur during the summer and fall. Most people who are infected with an enterovirus have no disease at all. Infected people who become ill usually develop either mild upper respiratory symptoms (a “cold”), a flu-like illness with fever, and muscle aches, or an illness with rash. Less commonly, some people have aseptic or viral meningitis. Rarely, a person may develop an illness that affects the heart (myocarditis) or the brain (encephalitis) or causes paralysis. In early fall 2014, an outbreak of infection with a non-polio enterovirus known as enterovirus D68, or EV-D68, sickened many children across multiple U.S. states, many of whom required care in a hospital intensive-care unit.

      I don’t normally use wikipedia as a source but in this case they have listed many of the enteroviruses and when some illness breaks out that is polio like-all the CDC has to do is reach in their hat and pull out a magic number: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enterovirus

      I think they try and use the ones, enteroviruses, people are familiar with so they don’t have people asking what you asked: Is it the same illness?

    It’s important also to understand that Polio, much like “the flu” (where only 10% is caused by the Influenza virus) isn’t necessarily only caused by the ‘polio virus.’ Polio is a condition, short for Polio (meaning spine) and Myelitis (meaning disorder of the insulating sheathes around the nerves, like the insulation on electrical wires).

    It’s very likely that neurotoxins were a main cause of the Polio epidemic of the past (up until the 1950s, DDT, arsenic, and lead were the main pesticides being used– all potent neurotoxins). There were a few studies done of hospital wards of polio patients (I think in Michigan) and it was found that only half of the patients had the ‘polio virus.’ When DDT fell out of use in the mid-1950s due to the health damage it was causing, the Polio rates started to fall.

    Of course 50,000+ people were given polio by the Salk polio vaccine, and then the SV40 debacle, etc. The history of the Polio vaccine is pretty horrific. But I still wonder if a lot of the various paralyzing diseases caused by vaccines are caused by the same mechanism as at least some of the Polio must have been.

    Vaccines can cause this sort of effect through both the neurotoxins contained in them (mercury, aluminum, formaldehyde, etc) and through causing autoimmune situations where the person’s body attacks its own myelin sheathes (De-mylineating autoimmune diseases are one of the bad side effects of vaccines).

    The big scare tactic now in the media is that unvaccinated children are going to make vaccinated children sick. But in reality it is the vaccinated children spreading and shedding the diseases they are injected with diseases! Misinformation is being spread that unvaccinated children are making immunocomporomised children or people sick but again the reality is the vaccinated people should be kept away from them. All of this fake news and misinformation is used to scare people into getting vaccinated and help to make Big Pharma even more $$$ at the cost and expense of children’s lives and health. Do tax payers even realize they are paying for the $4 billion dollars the vaccine court has paid out already! Also do they realize how much money it costs to care for children who are vaccine injured? Big Pharma does not provide any funds.

      It appears the madd vaxxers and their masters are resurrecting old talking points. That particular comment has been around for about 5 years. I remember Dorit Reiss, a paid for pharma operative had been making this statement of comment boards for months so I decided to challenge her on it. I asked her to explain scientifically how an healthy unvaccinated uninfected child could infected a vaccinated child if the vaccines worked? Reiss is the Queen of circular logic and distractions in all her comments, especially when she’s backed into a corner. She gave a long response, not answering the question so I just posted the question again and asked to to only address the question Usually this is when her troll brigade jumps on the board and begins their attack. At the end of the day they can’t answer the question I asked because her comment made no sense.

      Another comment I was hit with last week has been resurrected in a vaccine debate:
      “Do you think autism is worse than death?”

      I thank the person for asking the question and than said:
      what you have done is admit that Vaccines cause Autism. Why on earth would you ask is autism worse than death unless you actually do think that the vaccines can cause autism?

      This is where they change the subject.

    I thought polio was actually caused but a massive spraying of an unsafe pesticide or herbicide that just so happened to occur at the same time as the polio epidemic.

      There actually is an enterovirus that does affect the spine/nerves. But yes DDT can also affect the spine/nerves and cause ‘polio’. So in the 1950s the high rates of polio were mixed in with wild type polio cases when they thought mosquitoes carried the virus and sprayed heavily with DDT. Thus… we have our polio ‘epidemic’.

      DDT. Photos show children playing in the DDT fog as trucks drive down the street spreading it. Did DDT account for how many polio symtoms? What’s telling is the lack of documenting any such effects from the DDT; and it certainly wasn’t safe for those kids playing in it. Where’s the documentation of DDT harm; hidden in polio cases, that weren’t? Sure seems likely to me.

    Vaccine derived Polio has been with us for the past 60 years. Where DDT left off the vaccine picked up. I developed Polio or poisoned, by any other name, from the oral polio vaccine in 1963 and have suffered autoimmune issues ever since.

    Some clarity ……RNA viruses are long known as “associated”, “passenger” or “symbio” viruses by virologists and why they were ever named virus is questionable because they are not poisons. They enter the cells not as an infectious agent to kill the cell, but to pass cellular coding. This is why they were studied in the 70s as a possible catalyst thus cause of cancer. They are tiny particles, 1,000’s of times smaller than DNA virus. DNA on the other hand is a virus that kills the host cell. Any disease blamed on a RNA virus, whether Gillian Barr or Polio or AIDS or liver disease….is a falsehood.

    DDT and polio have been discussed. More recently Zika virus in Rio; babies with microcephaly were being blamed on Zika. News of the problem, reported that some pesticide had been approved for use in the water supply to combat the Zika mosquitos. It’s likely that the cases of microcephaly were a result of the pesticide, not the virus. That’s not what they want you to think.

    The EMRO region began in 2016 to introduce IPV in their vaccination program as the WHO recommendation , to prevent cVDPV2 , put most of countries in this region have weak polio surveillance , so I suggest to increase IPV within EPI , to avoid this problem , please I hope to receive a response for this suggestion.

    Here’s my issue. The CDC says, “A vaccine-derived poliovirus (VDPV) is a strain of the weakened poliovirus that was initially included in oral polio vaccine (OPV) and that has changed over time and behaves more like the wild or naturally occurring virus. This means it can be spread more easily to people who are unvaccinated against polio and who come in contact with the stool or respiratory secretions, such as from a sneeze, of an infected person. These viruses may cause illness, including paralysis.

    For this reason, the global eradication of polio requires stopping all OPV in routine immunization, as soon as possible after the eradication of wild poliovirus (WPV) transmission. To protect against all three types of WPV, the United States exclusively has used IPV since 2000”

    https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/vpd/polio/hcp/vaccine-derived-poliovirus-faq.html

    So before 2000, the CDC trusted and believed in the oral vaccine enough for widespread use – similar to heroin sold in sears magazines, menthol cigarettes being touted as lung medicine, and cocaine being the next wonder drug- but now realizes it’s quite dangerous. So because of this miscalculation, or whatever the heck we want to call it, we need to be vaccinated to protect us from the vaccinated. Is it just me, or is this insanity? How long will it take to find out the IPV is dangerous? How is this supposed to ignite trust?
