Is A Universal Pandemic Vaccine On the Way?

The Centers for Disease Control attempts to look into the future to guess in a virus strain to use in vaccines.

There’s a push to create a universal vaccine against influenza pandemics that may be coming to fruition sooner than we know.  Supposedly, those who were vaccinated against the 2009 pandemic—that never materialized—have developed antibodies against many other strains of influenza, including H1N1.

Rafi Ahmed, PhD, director of the Emory Vaccine Center, confirms his team is working on creating a universal influenza vaccine that can be given to everyone. The Emory team’s work centers on 24 healthy individuals who received the 2009 H1N1 vaccination.

Emery researchers found that those 24 individuals had something they apparently were looking for: certain antibodies that adhered to the “stalk” of the influenza virus.  To understand the importance of that to the researchers, we need to realize that a virus has a “head” that mutates between strains, but the “stalk” does not and remains intact or the same.  Usually, antibodies bind to the head, which is where the ‘crap shoot’ comes in, in designing an influenza-specific vaccine.  The apparent ‘eureka’ moment in vaccinology came when researchers found that flu antibodies were binding to the “stalk,” which does not mutate or change and, those 24 people had antibodies that could serve as the basis of a universal influenza vaccine.

Since this research apparently is revolutionary in the field of vaccinology, one has to question what will be the ramifications of such immunological manipulation.  There may be some problems that develop because of what this writer feels may present conflicts with natural immunity processes within the human organism.

The science of immunology desperately is working to superimpose its scientific model upon the way Mother Nature has been implementing the immune system response apparently since the beginning of human time.  Therein probably lies a problem.  That problem could be the immune system is either overworking to produce new or exacerbated allergies, or ‘failing’ by allowing chronic disease(s) to manifest, as is now apparently happening with very young children. That was an anomaly prior to the 1990s, which most likely resulted after the mandated push to vaccinate infants, toddlers, and older children.

Adjuvants in vaccines have been shown to induce chronic disease such as rheumatoid arthritis in rat studies.  The particular adjuvant involved was squalene.  Apparently squalene was an ingredient in the flu vaccine that has triggered narcolepsy.  It seems there’s a Pandora’s box of many surprises when it comes to vaccines.

One of the health issues vaccinologists may not be including regarding a universal flu vaccine is this: Influenza usually does not kill; it’s pneumonia the flu patient usually contracts that kills!  Pneumonia is one of the antimicrobial resistant diseases.  See item 3 below.

It would seem that vaccinology is not embracing the historical evidence for natural immunity, but forges ahead to reprogram not only human DNA but also the very mechanism by which humans remain healthy—natural immunity.  Several things point to that, which apparently are being ignored, I think.  They include: 

  1. Vaccinated children are coming down with pertussis (whooping cough), measles, and other diseases, which they are vaccinated against.  That says that either vaccines are not effective or the microorganisms are becoming so sophisticated they are morphing into super strains from the wild strains that humans evolved with.
  2. Federal health agencies such as the U.S. CDC and FDA enforce booster vaccinations because the vaccines apparently do not produce life-long immunity that occurs once an infectious disease is experienced and overcome, which has been historically apparent but overlooked by immunology science.  Furthermore, natural immunity does not produce revenue for Big Pharma.
  3. Vaccines and vaccinations do not produce natural immunity; they produce what are termed “antibodies” that vaccinologists rely on as ‘evidence’ that vaccines provide immunity.  Antibody production only is regarded and measured as ‘efficacy’ in vaccines.  If there are antibodies produced from vaccines to protect, why do vaccinated children still come down with whooping cough and other infectious diseases for which they have been vaccinated?  This writer ventures to say the reason is there is no natural immunity or the microorganisms (viruses and bacteria) have morphed into something different than the ‘wild’ diseases.  Consider what antibiotics have done to program diseases like MRSA, etc.  If you think there is only one or two antibiotic-resistant diseases, check out the CDC’s “Diseases/Pathogens Associated with Antimicrobial Resistance” at http://www.cdc.gov/drugresistance/DiseasesConnectedAR.html.  That website lists numerous bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites as “antimicrobial resistant.”  Immunology science may be creating new and more ‘sophisticated’ microorganisms as a result of an inability to accept the concept of natural immunity, in my opinion.
  4. One classic example that vaccines do not ‘protect’ revolves around the tetanus vaccine.  According to what this writer knows, there is no evidence in the medical/scientific literature that tetanus vaccine protects!  If there is such evidence, I ask for the references, please.
  5. Maternal immunity transfer problems may occur in breastfeeding infants if mom had a universal flu vaccine before she became pregnant.  Currently there is talk about discouraging mothers from breastfeeding because it interferes with vaccines’ ‘efficacy’.  That indicates to this writer just how determined Big Pharma is to make vaccines ‘work’, even to the point of disregarding how the human body functions and to reprogram it to Big Pharma’s dictates.

Even though the long-term goals of the Ahmed research team at Emory are “to understand the mechanisms of immunological memory and to use this information to develop new vaccines for the prevention and treatment of disease,” healthcare consumers need to realize that they may be looking down a proverbial gun barrel of unknowns from which no one will be exempt from mass immunization programs similar to the one that was ‘floated’ in 1976 but shot down because of Guillian Barré syndrome.  Only God knows what will happen with the next mass vaccination mandate, and He is not telling anyone yet, it seems.

    There is NO PROOF that any vaccines produce IMMUNITY.  They appear to produce autoimmune disorders and allergies which are sensitization byproducts not immunity.

  • Medical_Freedom

    Ms Frompovich is right.  All this tinkering with virus’s is a deliberate move to help create a pandemic in order to cull the world overpopulation problem of ‘useless eaters’. 

    Secondary Transmission: The short and sweet about live virus vaccine shedding.February 24, 2008A child gets vaccinated and is from that moment on protected from the vaccine virus, correct? We all realize that vaccines are not 100% failproof, but is that the only concern?If it only were that simple. The fact is that once a child is injected with a live virus vaccine (and let’s assume that this child is immune as a result of it) there are still other things to consider which most parents do not know about and most pediatricians fail to warn about – which is vaccine shedding!Shedding is when the live virus that is injected via vaccine, moves through the human body and comes back out in the feces, droplets from the nose, or saliva from the mouth. Anyone who takes care of the child could potentially contract the disease for some time after that child has received certain live vaccines. This was a huge problem with the oral polio vaccine, and was one of the reasons why it was taken off the market in the US.The OPV is still used in developing counties……


    WHY would a vaccine that has the potential to spread to others be considered unsafe for Americans, yet safe enough to give to impoverished people in third worlds nations?

    On the tetanus front, I found myself having to go to A&E due to a bad arm injury which had become infected. In shock, pain and exhaustion I was pressured to have a jab by this big black nurse who insisted she’d seen people die of tetanus poisoning for wounds much less severe than mine. Even though I’m 100% against these injections, there are times when your resistance is so weakened, they’ll simply take advantage.

  • Argus

    If you really are “100% against these injections” then why did you allow one to be given to you?

    Could it be because you realized that the nurse was right, and that receiving the vaccine really was better than taking the chance of suffering through (and possibly dying) of a tetanus infection?

    Congratulations, you have just figured out how to make a decision by comparing the risks and benefits of BOTH choices and not just being guided by the real and imagined risks of only one choice.

    And you have proven you are NOT 100% against vaccination. Good for you.

  • PavolvsBitch

    Ah no. I explained myself perfectly clearly so don’t go ‘injecting’ a diversion which is the outcome YOU want to conclude and NOT my words or experience.
    There is absolutely no benefit to allowing a needle into your body filled with pus and lethal killing agents.

  • PavolvsBitch

    This is a travesty; we’re becoming unhuman as these coctails contain alien DNA.

  • Spearce

    “…Currently there is talk about discouraging mothers from breastfeeding because it interferes with vaccines’ ‘efficacy’. …”  Thanks for bringing that up. That just makes me SICK to think some mothers might actually heed the advice to not breastfeed so that a vaccine might work better! 

  • AussieMum


    Any conflict of interests to declare?!

  • LEliel

    Just a comment. Those millions of tetanus cases worldwide are NEWBORN tetanus, more than 90% of them. The cause is bad hygiene during the labor. No vaccine prevent this, just education of midwifes and better living conditions. But this fact does not prevent some wise heads within establishment to declare that infant vaccination eradicated newborn tetanus. I am not kidding, I saw such a statement in oficial document of Slovak Ministry of Health. I think they do not deliberately lie, they really believe in vaccination so much that they stop thinking. 

  • Vaccines,a scourge on mankind!

  • Spearce

     I love your comments, Lowell. Keep up the good work! You do great research.

    “Federal health agencies such as the U.S. CDC and FDA enforce booster vaccinations ”

    A few more “booster vaccinations” and our kids will be dead at 40. Is that the plan?

    “All vaccines given over
    a short period of time to an immature immune system deplete the thymus gland
    (the primary gland involved in immune reactions) of irreplaceable immature
    immune cells. Each of these cells could have multiplied and developed into an
    army of valuable cells to combat infection and growth of abnormal cells. When
    these immune cells have been used up, permanent immunity may not appear. The Arthur Research
    Foundation in Tucson, Arizona estimates that up to 60 % of our immune system may
    be exhausted[19] by multiple mass vaccines (36 are now required for children).
    Only 10 % of immune cells are permanently lost when a child is permitted to
    develop natural immunity from disease. There needs to be grave concern about
    these immune system injuring vaccinations! Could the persons who approve these
    mass vaccinations know that they are impairing the health of these children,
    many of whom are being doomed to requiring much medical care in the future?”  

    Is the “vaccination” needle a weapon of mass destruction

  • Lou


    PROVE (gold standard clinical testing) these toxins do something good.

    IMO it cannot be done or they would have done it.

  • Lou

    “Consider what antibiotics have done to program diseases like MRSA”

    The whole MRSA farce is almost comical in its implications for HSS, our hospital system and the rest of “Organized Medicine”; of course the deaths involved  make comical impossible.

    Some medical professionals have stated hospitals would rather see patients die than to use the IV Vitamin C that could save many “terminal” vitamin C deficient patients. MRSA is just an extension of this pigheaded, anti-scientific thinking; this time ignoring the importance of terminal vitamin D deficiency.

    “According to the researchers, an estimated 2.7 million Americans, or just over one percent of the population, carry the MRSA virus in their nasal passages. In addition, about 30 percent of people carry MRSA on their skin without any noticeable side effects, and outbreaks have occurred that stemmed from places like schools and public gyms. Your house and even your
    pets are also places that can harbor and spread this dangerous bacteria. Vitamin D tackles one of the most prolific and dreaded antibiotic-resistant bugs out there – methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, also known as MRSA.”  The Evidence for Vitamin D as a Primary Defense Against Infectious Disease

    “New research now shows that low serum vitamin D levels increase the risk of nasal carriage of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). An estimated 2.7 million people in the U.S. are MRSA nasal carriers.”  Doctor Joseph Mercola MD

    “The Lethal combination of insufficient vitamin D (due to lack of sunshine and no supplements) lack of sleep (due to chronic hospital staff disturbance) and nutritional deficit (due to micronutrient depleted hospital “food” and stress inducing commotion) conspires to rob hospitalized patients of immune function required to suppress bacteria carried in their own bodies.”   Life Extension, WOW here IMO is the SOLUTION to the MRSA problem.

    “Garlic is also a triple threat against infections due to its antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties. It is effective at killing antibiotic-resistant bacteria, including MRSA,
    as well as fighting yeast infections, viruses and parasites.”   Doctor Joseph Mercola MD


  • Argus

    Smallpox, a scourge on mankind!
    Thank goodness we were able to wipe it out with vaccine.

  • Catherine J Frompovich

    Lowell, Thank you so very much for your EXCELLENT comments, which I truly appreciate.  You really do your research!  I wish everyone were as up to par on vaccines as you apparently are.  Keep commenting because I truly appreciate your input. 

  • Spearce

    Read this, especially the part where Dr. Thomas Mack says “… In fact, were there no smallpox eradication program, my guess
    is that smallpox would have died out anyway, it just would have taken a
    lot longer. …”  http://www.leaflady.org/smallpox.htm
    [“…Dr.Thomas Mack from the University of Southern California School
    of Medicine has spent more time working with population based outbreaks
    of smallpox than anyone else has. He opposes a mass vaccination
    campaign. …”] Read the whole thing.

  • Argus

    So Mr./Ms. Spearce, I suppose you have read this whole thing and understand the timing and context of Dr. Mack’s statements.

    On that basis, what is the point you are trying to make?

  • Spearce

    Dr. Mack said smallpox would have died out even without the vaccine program. So, why the rush to provide the very dangerous vaccines again about a decade ago? Yes, I did read it. Even if all you read is the underlined parts, you will see that the vaccine is not worth the risk of side effects.

  • Yaa right, Argus That was funny, Argus. Keep lying; YOU know better. Keep on with those delusions of how vaccines saved the world, so you can feel better about the reality of it all and as to the more harm than good damage they have always done. Lets see your proof of everything you claim to? Get started. How many times have you been asked for that? “Oh the CDC says, and the WHO states”. Untrustworthy pharma funded sources of the highest order. Why do you keep refusing the facts?

  • Argus

    Just to clarify what Spearce is talking about; Dr. Mack’s comments were made at a seminar in 2002 to discuss how to respond to a possible terrorist attack using weaponized smallpox.  This is about 30 years after smallpox was eradicated and vaccination discontinued in the US and the same for the rest of the world about 5 years after that. He makes the observation (as an informed opinion) that in case of a smallpox outbreak in a well developed country that current medical practices in recognizing and treating the disease and practicing isolation and quarantine would limit the spread to the degree that the benefits of mass immunization would be extremely limited and would not outweigh the risks.  He **does** recommend that personnel that would be expected to come into contact with infected individuals **should be** inoculated for smallpox; again weighing the benefits against the risks.
     So he is not at all talking about the situation before 1971, when wild smallpox was still present in the world, including countries with limited devlopment.

  • Argus

    And now the question for you, Spearce:
    By posting this in response to my original comment about the fact that smallpox was eradicated by the use of vaccine are you trying to say that it would have been better NOT to have used the vaccine – and simply waited however many additional years for isolation and quarantine practices to eliminate it (if only in developed areas where swift recognition and proper practices were possible)?

  • SeeBeeThree

    We know about super bugs that are resistant to antibiotics. Wouldn’t it be logical that the some viruses would mutate… rendering the vaccines ineffective?

    Plus, here is a study about Shingles. Adaptive immunity is based off of IgG antibodies present. This study brings to light about some importance of the IgG being present BEFORE, during and after the active flare (of the chickenpox virus) and IgE anti-VCV also being present in to help fight the infection. So that means the IgG, at least in this case, didn’t provide immunity to the body from the varicella-zoster virus. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19201740

    Here is a study about the anti-parvovirus and IgE creating an immunity. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12921761

    Just an interesting fact: IgE is related to allergies and the body fighting parasites.

    I came across a question about a child never coming into contact with an egg (hello, vaccinations?), but showed elevated IgE to egg.  http://www.aaaai.org/ask-the-expert/administration-of-influenza-vaccine-to-toddler.aspx

    I did come across a study that stated that vaccinations produced IgE and IgG post vaccination. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21448311

    Isabelle Rouleau holds a Master of Science (MSc) in Pharmacy and is a
    Philosophy Doctorate (PhD) Candidate in Epidemiology at Université
    Laval. She talks about increase in allergies after the H1N1 vaccination. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tlK_2J0oZho

    In her speech, she gives a slide at 7:08 that talks about the skin tests and allergic reactions to different components of the vaccine. If you listen to the whole thing, you can find out that there are more things than “heavy metals” that the body can react to. Each case is not the same and from what I understood your body can be allergic to the antibodies produced from the vaccine.

    One other thing to consider, IgE produces histamines and “allergies”. If we are producing “allegies” to the the virus or bacteria, couldn’t this make us sick too? What if we develop an allergy to any component in the vaccine, would it even be recognized by the medical community? What if it wasn’t immediate?

    It’s actually to do with the maternally-transferred antibodies an so forth suppressing the newborns immune system a bit (all the while protecting the infant with the maternal antibodies) until the newborn has an immune system mature enough to cope well on its own. If the baby is not able to produce antibodies to a vaccine (antigens, not antibodies being given, with the intention of the baby’s immune system making its own antibodies to this) then the vaccine is useless. If a baby cannot make antibodies to a given antigen concoction designed to allow the production of said antibodies due to this suppressant effect, then it is wasted and the mother assumes her baby is safe to disease when it is not.

    And by the way, tetanus injections are only recommended now if you get a deep cut likely to be infected. Also, to all you ‘naturalists’ out there willing to doubt a century of research and force your children to be at risk, I strongly suggest you look up diseases known to have been eradicated

  • Dolphin1528

    Ever think that may have been due to the fact that vaccines had not actually been invented, and that this was the founding work for vaccines and immunology? The fact that pus
    Was used as an immunising agent rather than a tested, understood and targeted vaccine with adjuvant and safety precautions? Are we really still living in such an age? I think not!

    What about PavolvsBitch? She pretends to be against vaccinations, but when she really needed one – to prevent tetanus – she accepted it, knowing that it was the best decision.
    Thus she avoided the suffering and agony of a case of tetanus.
