U.S. Government & Whistleblowers Sue Merck About Falsely Certified Mumps Vaccine

Whistleblowers shine light on shady Big Pharma behavior.

This story has a long timeline.  It starts with the mumps vaccine that Merck’s eminent vaccinologist Maurice Hilleman, MD, came up with using a strain he developed from his five year old daughter—commonly referred to as the “Jeryl Lynn” strain—that has been manufactured by Merck since 1967.

In essence what transpired is the vaccine virus was “passaged” over the years through various growth medium or animal cells that caused the vaccine to lose its potency—let’s say ‘watered down’—and it became non-effective against the “wild” mumps virus. However, Merck had contended its MMRII vaccine was 95 percent effective (efficiency or efficacy rate) since at least the year 2000. The compliant charges Merck listed that false information on the vaccine package inserts which the U.S. CDC, FDA, and the National Vaccine Program relied upon as accurate information to promote to health agencies. That was not scientifically accurate nor was Merck able to produce that 95 percent effectiveness rate according to the accepted practices the CDC and FDA relied upon for vaccines to be certified.  However, Merck never ‘fessed up that it was selling bum dope information and defective MMRII vaccines.

What happened next is what in accounting parlance is called “cooking the books.”  Let’s say Merck apparently ‘cooked the science’.  Still, two MDs who worked on the project were conscience struck about all the shenanigans that Merck scientists came up with in trying to reach the 95 percent efficacy rate that allowed Merck to maintain its MMRII vaccine monopoly in the United States.

However, other Merck vaccines contained the ‘watered down’ mumps vaccine.  They included the quadravalent vaccine ProQuad, and the trivalent MMRVaxpro Merck sold to European markets.  In 2005 the FDA recalled Merck’s ProQuad.

The ‘science’ that Merck managers came up with was to use animal (rabbit) antibodies that increased the efficacy rate to 100 percent.  That sent up red flags since pre-vaccine and post-vaccine blood tests had to be taken.  That’s when the normal 10 percent positive in pre-vaccine blood test results shot to 80 percent positive, a ‘perfect storm’ event indicating mischievous manipulation of scientific protocols, plus something that would not occur naturally.  That led to more falsification that two whistleblowers presented to Merck officials who, in turn, told them they would be jailed if they reported to the FDA what was going on.  Also, the whistleblowers were reminded of the huge bonuses that would be paid to them when the FDA approved Merck’s paperwork for certification.

Long story short, FDA finally was able to sort out the mess with the help of the whistleblowers who became plaintiffs along with the United States of America ex rel., in the original complaint [Civil Action No.10-4374, U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania] filed August 27, 2010.

What I would like to concentrate on are the annotations I made while reading the amended complaint because I think they will hit a few home runs for vaccine safety advocates.

According to both the original and amended [filed April 27, 2012] complaints, a jury trial is requested. Treble damages are requested since the U.S. government estimates it paid Merck more than $700 Million for the MMRII vaccine administered to children in the USA.  Based upon those figures, damages alone would amount to about $2.25 Billion.  Then penalties for each violation have to be added on, plus the court awarding all legal costs the two former Merck employee whistleblowers incurred filling the lawsuit, in addition to certain interest amounts the court will allow.

All that does absolutely nothing to help the millions of infants and children who also had a fraud perpetrated upon them and from which they have suffered losses either as adverse events and/or contraction of mumps—all while believing they were protected—the intent for such vaccinations.  Since Merck apparently produced pseudo science with resulting vaccine package inserts to match, the CDC, FDA, federal, state and local health agencies, MDs, pediatricians, nurses and the media believed such poppycock or pseudo science.

This whistleblower court case exonerates vaccine safety advocates of any conspiracy theories regarding the safety and efficacy of vaccines, I do believe.  Furthermore, who is to say the Merck mumps vaccine ‘sleight of science’ is an anomaly.  More whistleblowers need to come forth because this writer feels the Merck mumps vaccine fraud just may be the tip of the every-growing-science-manipulated, fraud iceberg.  There probably is more to that than meets the scientific eye, and FDA needs to get on the stick about not relying upon vaccine makers to do the science.

One question that pops up regarding mumps outbreaks that could not be figured out seemingly parallels what’s happening with pertussis (whooping cough) and measles outbreaks that are being blamed on non-vaccinated children.  I respectfully suggest that CDC and FDA do some housecleaning on vaccine-manufacturers’ science by having independent laboratories confirm efficacy rates.

Something that I think needs pointing out is the CDC and FDA must ask each vaccine maker pointed questions about all vaccine efficacy rates since Merck may not be the only manufacturer to use the rabbit antibodies trick, a genuine scientific fraud.

Part of the 55-page amended complaint deals with Merck’s false representation through package inserts which, after reading the shenanigans that went on—and probably go on to prove a product—no vaccine package insert should be regarded as factual, in my opinion.

Scientists apparently are not beyond painting white mice black or black mice white to prove what’s needed to be proven to get a pharmaceutical to market.

The original 95 percent efficacy rate for Merck’s mumps vaccine was based upon the 1967 filing for governmental approval.  Can you imagine that?  And they call vaccine safety advocates liars!

All the above leads one to ask if there is anything else Merck falsifies about vaccines.

Do other pharmaceutical makers also falsify or fudge the ‘science’ they supply to CDC,
FDA, and print on package inserts?

One thing I think that needs to be pointed out is the revolving door policy that apparently exists between federal government health agencies and Big Pharma.  Julie Gerberding, MD, MPH, was the Director of the CDC during the 2006 mumps outbreak.  Wasn’t she attributed with saying, “We have absolutely no information to suggest that there is any problem with the vaccine”?  Again, this remark apparently reflects the CDC’s implicit reliance upon Big Pharma to produce the ‘science’, which definitely is a conflict of interest that FDA and Congress must fix.  Oh by the way, Dr Gerberding is now President of Merck’s vaccine division.

According to the complaint, the plaintiffs pointed out that Emory University is conducting a clinical trial attempting to find the cause or explain the 2006 mumps outbreak in college-age students who received both doses of the vaccine.  Please get this part: Merck is a collaborator on that study!  In view of the whistleblowers’ lawsuit about the mumps vaccine, wouldn’t one think that Merck would not be wanted in the investigation?

Here is a statistic for vaccine safety advocates taken from the complaint:

Nearly 5,000 cases of mumps were confirmed during the 2009 outbreak.

So one can readily see that these outbreaks should not be blamed upon non-vaccinated children, since the very vaccinated children may be those contracting the diseases for which they were vaccinated.  If anything, this lawsuit against Merck proves more in the vaccine safety advocates’ corner and puts vaccine makers’ pseudo science on the ropes, I’d say.

One interesting factoid I found in the complaint is how the 1986 vaccine law probably came about.  Merck and the CDC were haggling about certain aspects of disclosing diminished efficacy and Merck made some suggestions in 1970 that CDC agreed to.  It basically was this:

It provided a way to assure that the CDC could purchase Merck’s vaccines without Merck being subjected to personal injury claims for failing to warn individual vaccinees or their parents about the safety and efficacy of vaccines administered through government vaccination programs.” [Complaint pg.32, clause 106]

As this writer interprets the above, the 1986 vaccine law Congress passed should be repealed as it represents the utmost of conflict of interest, special privilege, and a denial of tort rights to damaged individuals.

Perhaps members of Congress ought to read the current complaint filed against Merck, do an about face and retract/rescind The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA) of 1986 (42 U.S.C. §§ 300)—the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program.  Such Congressional action would provide relief for infants and children damaged not only by Merck’s mumps-containing MMRII vaccine, but also for other vaccines that probably are fudged scientifically and by which Big Pharma makes jillions without being held responsible for damaging innocent children.  Who will file a lawsuit for them?

Why didn’t the media and press report the 2010 complaint filed against Merck’s fraudulent mumps vaccine?  Doesn’t a defective vaccine apparently impact public health according to the CDC and FDA belief system?  Why wasn’t the public told of such vaccine fraud?  Could such non-reporting of an apparent public health problem generated by an apparent fraudulent and defective vaccine be considered a conspiracy of silence on the part of the media, the press, and whoever is their muse?  Isn’t it about time the U.S. healthcare consumer found out that it apparently cannot trust the CDC or FDA or Big Pharma when it comes to vaccines and vaccinations, the ‘Sacred Cow’ of modern medicine?

    I have shared this article on FB, and here is the comment to it which I made:
    This is a beautifully written editorial on the lawsuit currently filed against Merck for fraud regarding its mumps vaccine (as part of the MMR). The only problem is that any professional who is so polite and addresses this problem so reaso…nably has missed something — drug cos. lie, steal, commit fraud, bribe, and extort their ways into the billions upon billions of dollars which they make off vaccines and other drugs worldwide every year. I personally have witnessed all of it — and in just one year as a law student intern with a WHO pharmacologist who has spent his entire career embattled with drug co. fraud and the harm which it does to the health of everyone on Earth. There is not one lie which a drug co. will not tell in order to rake in the biggest bucks possible from its products. There is no one in gov’t whom a drug co. will not bribe in order to acquire the rights to sell “junk” to the public. There is no end to the fake data which a drug co. will submit to the drug licensing authority in order to get a new drug approved and patented. One would think that drug cos. and their buddies in gov’t would have a heart and spare our children from the ravages of their greed, but apparently, no, not even the most vulnerable segment of our society is too precious not to be sacrificed as cash cows for drug cos. these days, irrespective of the ultimate harm to be caused to their overall lifetime health.

    Margaret,
    Thank you for your most enlightening comments about the year you spent as a law student intern with a WHO pharmacologist.  You said it all; need I say any more?
    For you, an attorney, to come forth and speak as candidly as you do about the ‘swept under the rug’ problems in pharmacology and vaccinology, I think ought to impress those who believe Big Pharma’s pseudo science–including the CDC and FDA–are being taken for ‘the proverbial ride’.  The sad part about all this is that innocent children and their damaged families are paying the price.  But, so is society in general, I think.  Again, thank you, and please feel free to share more of what you know.  The public needs to know.

  • Catherine J Frompovich

    Tonibark,
    Thanks for your intriguing comment.  Would you like to explain for our readers why you say “they [DOJ-Dept.of Justice] will never prosecute a case involving a vaccine”?  It sounds as if you may be an attorney or someone who may have some insights that need to be shared.  Will you, please, and thanks.

    From what I have seen of this vaccine politics picture, I would find it extremely unlikely as well, that the DOJ would ever prosecute a situation involving a vaccine. Of course not likely would anyone ever find direct proof of that directive in any verbal or written form.

    We have what should a prosecutable case right now with Gardasil, Where has there been any real prosecutions as to pharma drugs? They simply pay the price of doing business and walk away having for the most part lost nothing, as the profits are so high.    

    1. There was no true placebo used; one placebo contained the aluminum adjuvant, and there has been some evidence that the other one contained the carrier solution. All but the antigen and adjuvant. A person could ask, why did they not just use a saline placebo? What was there to hide?

    2. There is no real evidence that Gardasil is effective. Showing a certain increase in antibodies, does not prove in any way that immunity was acquired in anyone. In what I seen and read it appears that there was never even any conclusive proof that HPV alone even causes cancer in a healthy person. They know as well that if it does, then it is only in those women with an ongoing chronic case of HPV, and there are said to as many as 100 strains of it.

    A.   Natural history of genital HPV infection1.    Most infections are transient, asymptomatic or subclinical, and have no clinical consequences in immunocompetent individuals.2.    The incubation period is unclear.a)    Probably 3 weeks to months for genital wartsb)    Probably several months to years for cervical cellular abnormalities3.    The median duration of new cervical infections (measured by detection of HPV DNA) is 8 months but varies by HPV type.a)    70% of new infections clear within 1 year.b)    90% of new infections clear within 2 years.c)    The gradual development of an effective immune response is thought to be the likely mechanism for HPV DNA clearance.

    3. In the clinical trials, by the VRBPAC document, there was observed  in some cases a 44.6% increase in precancerous lesions in those with pre-existing HPV, after recieving Gardasil. Also with use of the vaccine, there was evidence of other HPV strains becoming stronger. They knew this, and approved the vaccine anyway, There was technology to test for existing HPV testing, and when the FDA an application come in applying for that technologies use it was derailed because they did not want any testing done, as it would point to the problems they already knew existed with Gardasil. They approved it anyway with a condition that Merck study it further and report back. No one in the public arena has ever heard of or seen that report, to my knowledge.

    4. The we now have the contamination issue found by SaneVax, and the same HPV DNA Merck stated was not in the vaccine, indeed was, and said locked to the aluminum adjuvant. Even though the FDA has been made aware of this, they claim there is no proven risk. There is existing science however that I believe shows a clear risk for autoimmune conditions, and likely a lot more. Nothing is enough, they deny all risk and harm repeatedly.

    If you would like to read the actual 2006 Gardasil FDA pre-approval document that has been made reference to here, luckily Natural News in approximately 2008 had saved a copy of it to their files, just in case the FDA removed it, and sure enough it appears the FDA did. Take a look. Ask, what was the reason the FDA would have pulled that document down from its site? It shows exactly what they knew.

    Criminal behavior of pharmaceutical companies. 3 strikes and YOUR our, is what needs to happen, otherwise it is an endless cycle. They all know how much money can be made, and the penalties are far less than they can stand to profit by what they do. Given the fact that these same people make the vaccines, would it be cause for some serious questions? Sure would.

    WHY, WHY, WHY are the criminals NOT BEING TAKEN TO JAIL, PROSECUTED?  WHY, WHY, WHY do the drug companies just throw more money at the gov officials when they get caught, then the gov makes more laws to protect drug companies?   WHY, WHY, WHY, are the people not declaring WAR against the DRUG COMPANIES who are using weapons of mass destruction on the people, lying to the doctors and making IDIOTS out of the MEDICAL PROFESSION? 

  • EllenDiann

    The biggest PROBLEM we have with drug companies is that PEOPLE trust their doctors not knowing they KNOW NOTHING about the development of drugs, they just PUSH what sells and gives them the most profit.  Drug sales reps spend A LOT of money (average 30,000 per doctor) to get them to sell their drugs.  The people want research to BACK up why they should not take the drugs and that will not happen because drug companies LIE, CHEAT, STEAL and murder people for drug money, to include doctors who DARE defy their control over the AMA and FDA.   Go to Jesusheals.ws and visit the links of doctors who tell the truth at their cost of their medical license and sometimes their lives.  The DRUG LORDS have taken over health care and people need to stop being whimmpy, fearful and so easy to be led to the slaughter on the alters of the AMA health care.

  • EllenDiann

    Cancer research is a FRAUD, vaccine research is a FRAUD, drug research is a FRAUD.  Clue:  No cures and all medications have evil side effects because they do not belong in the human body.  We have the cures and the cures are safe and natural.  Stop being so STUPID to imagine drug companies are looking for cures!

  • Catherine J Frompovich

    Lowell,Thanks for explaining why you think DOJ won’t get involved.  To  my way of thinking, DOJ’s not getting involved ought to be legal grounds for malfeasance of duty to protect the public and enforce laws regarding false advertising in the USA, since vaccine package inserts apparently were falsely produced and misled health officials.  Or, does that type of legalistics apply ONLY to holistic medicine entities, where often false charges are fabricated against them with raids where guns are drawn and doors knocked down? 

  • Minority View

    Just wanted to do a small correction. Early in the article you describe the whistleblowers as MDs. They are not. Both of them are virologists I believe. 

  • Catherine J Frompovich

    Minority View,
    You are correct in that the whistleblowers are/were virologists.  

  • Margaret

    It is amazing — let me use that word again — just how much one may learn as a greenhorn during a law school internship with the son of a Nobel laureate (who happened to be THE state of the art as an Immunologist in his day) as ones’ don.  One learns more from osmosis than from the hours spent in the medical libraries.  All of us at first, when confronted with the notion that the drug industry is corrupted from start to finish, are extremely reluctant to accept this reality, since the popular culture of medicine portrays drugs as modern day “saviors” of people who suffer from disease.  All of us stop and wonder for a moment how long we might have survived without, say, antibiotics way back in the day when our appendix ruptured, and we had to have an emergency appendectomy first thing one morning, etc.  How long might our fathers have lived without the heart medicines available to treat their heart (and other cardiovascular) disease?  Even Peter Medawar, Nobel laureate father of my don, once remarked that he suffered such extreme morbidity from the stroke which he had at only age 54 only because his friends yet had to discover interferon when he was stricken, etc.

    But the truth is that the drugs now known to be invaluable to our health and which are available on the market provide only a gloss, i.e., the bait out there which endears us to the pharmaceutical industry by conjuring up positive emotions whenever we think of what certain drugs may achieve in the way of curing disease and contributing to a better quality of life and increased longevity among our loved ones.  The overwhelming majority of Rx drugs sold today do far more harm to our health than they ever make us “healthier.”  The motto of the drug cos. today is “Keep ‘em hooked from womb to tomb.”  How else did the pharmaceutical industry become the largest industry on Earth (based on annual revenues worldwide) today, and an industry six times larger than the oil industry on a global basis?  Businesspeople do not acquire this type of economic power via honest marketing and sales of products which are necessary to anyone’s quality of life.

    In my relatively brief experience as a “consumer advocate” intern for patients injured by pharmaceutical products, I witnessed prominent physicians’ paid to promote new drugs (a violation of law) which had no known efficacy nor therapeutic value at all.  The data which proved the latter, as well as the risks of harm from use of these products, was kept carefully hidden from the drug licensing authority, although all officials connected with the drug licensing authority knew anyway (as did the medical board). The drug, before my very eyes, was promoted to women via European Vogue, compliments of this physician (think Dr. Oz, Dr. Drew, etc.).  Then, it was licensed in the U.S., and Tom Brokaw was promoting it on NBC’s Nightly News as the “new wonder drug” for our troops in the Middle East.  After this drug had done its job — i.e., raked in the anticipated billions in profits for its manufacturer, — our FDA suddenly decided to recall it from the market (I forget now exactly why — due to unreasonable lack of safety or lack of efficacy).  So, there you have it — a drug scam from a to z.  How many times per year is this scenario repeated worldwide and in the U.S.?  There is no way to account for all the people who are sickened due to these types of drug scams every day, 24/7.  And, of course, without the cooperation of gov’t and medical authorities, drug cos. could not pull it off.

    The medical professionals who battle these literal rackets involving pharmaceuticals always are ignored and/or silenced, and drug co. business goes on as usual.  In fact, over time, the drug cos. only grow in power and learn how to breach all the safeguards which are supposed to be in effect to protect our health from dangerous drugs and devices.  What breaks my heart is that not even our children are spared now as pawns in the drug cos.’ thrusts for economic power over our lives.  The public must learn to reorder its priorities where health care and its perceptions of health are concerned and strike back.  The human body is a marvelous machine and one which tends to work miraculously well when left alone.  Until people remember this fact, and respect it, they will feel helpless even to eat, digest food, sleep normally, perform sex, combat germs, relax, enjoy themselves, have normal bowel movements, and age without the assistance of some “junk” sold to them by a drug co.

  • Margaret

    In my experience, most package inserts for drugs contain patent lies.  Sorry for breaking this news, but this just is the way the game is played.  Drug cos. lie about everything pertaining to their products in one way or another.  The challenge is for anyone to do anything to them on account of it.  They tend to have all regulatory authorities firmly under their thumbs these days.  Most federal laws which pertain to the topic of vaccines place drug cos. in a carte blanche position in which they may do anything which they please, make any statements which they please, and only taxpayers are stuck with the bills for their malfeasance.  Of course, our gov’t may not actively attempt to prosecute a drug co. over a vaccine — doing so implicates the gov’t itself in criminal activity and imposes civil liability onto the gov’t (the taxpayers) for the harm which the vaccine has done to people.  Where vaccines are concerned, our federal gov’t is a de facto employee of the pharmaceutical industry, based on how federal laws on this topic now are written and based on the arrangements through which drug cos. remit money to the federal gov’t.

    All of you remain quite naive of the actual extent to which drug cos. defraud everyone on Earth.  Back to vaccines for a moment, e.g., the ones allegedly “donated” to public health programs in developing countries — wanna know how many of these drugs are re-labeled and with false expiration dates, i.e., already expired drugs are shipped out?  Wanna know how physicians are powerless to do anything about this but administer the adulterated drugs?  Wanna know how frequently physicians’ lives may be threatened (and for real) when out in the field if they speak up?

    If by chance it doesn’t, then google NWC | 3238 P Street, NW | Washington, DC 20007 | (202) 342-1903, as this petition just may wake up Congress to do its job regarding the FDA.  PLEASE, go for it, and thank you.

    Jn Hobbs,
    I could not agree more with your assessment, “As parents we are failing to protect our children from the medical industry.”  However, Congress really is to blame, I feel, because parents often feel/believe there is nothing they can do against the sledge-hammer tactics of government. 

    That is one arena where I truly believe that government has to listen to parents and NOT Big Pharma and their ‘scientists’, the CDC and FDA who only parrot pharma’s pseudo science, as this article I wrote confirms.  

    Instead of laws mandating children be vaccinated, there ought to be laws against the apparent criminal activity that apparently exists within the supposedly life-saving professions surrounding medicine.  

    Thank you for your comment, which I appreciate.

    Here is a news article issued today, July 20, 2012:  Holy cow — have a look at this. The article is entitled, “Glaxo must withdraw bonuses from employees who cross over the line.” Does anyone think that this sanction issued by the Inspector General of DHHS will do any good?

    Catherine, Thank you for that link to pro publica’s work on tracking monies dispensed to physicians by drug cos.  When I worked with Charles Medawar, and with affiliated colleagues, there was a rule of thumb never to allow a drug co. so much as to pay for lunch.  That is, even when these scientists were at WHO meetings, none ever attended any of the dinners, etc., when any of the festivities might have been paid for by drug cos.  Back then, I would ask, “What is the harm in letting a drug co. pay for lunch?”  The looks which I received in response would have killed in and of themselves.  Now, I do understand why one resists all temptations thrown onto one’s path by a drug co.

    Exactly, and that is why it is so unjust. At the same time that they are allowing all the pharmaceutical company corruption at the FDA, and doing nothing; they are literally standing on the backs and necks of the alternative health field and as to the promotion of their products. Products that work and protocols that work. It ends up an entirely controlled monopoly, and yet the practice of so called modern medicine, remains to be one of the leading causes of death in the US. And really, do you think they can actually argue with the studies that show that to be a fact? No they can not. Until there is real and unbiased oversight at the FDA, where they can not silence the whistle blowers, nothing is going to change. Being left as a profits protecting self serving revolving door with industry, there can be absolutely no change at the FDA.

    It has been going on for the past 100 years, and only getting worse. The whole foundation of modern medicine was built on the incorrect premises promoted by Pasteur. The false germ theory, the soil and the seed. There is a clear reason it all is like it is. Money, greed, and profit. Bechamps well proven, (more than a theory), would never have sold millions in chemcial based pharma drugs and vaccines. To use Bechamps principals, would effect a true understanding of the cause, and true healing. Everything in the naturopathic was falsley railed on as unproven quackery, while the real quackery they claimed was science based, and the only thing in a medical school that would accepted.

    We have the Rockefellers and their early oil money to thank for it all, and the way it yet stands today; and The Flexner Report. This is all easily researchable and verified. When you even have the power to buy the Encyclopedia Brittanica and remove what you do not want in it, esssentially rewriting history, then you as well have the total control to decieve the masses, and no one is supposed to be the wiser. Look at the good job they did of it? How many people actually realize that this is why it all remains in the failed situation it is within the medical establishment? They will yet deny that it is and has failed. Nothing would quite obviously ever be enough to get them to face it; as they simply have to much to lose.

    Margaret, 
    To my way of thinking, the Glaxo article you link to may be pointing to the fact that a member of the Big Pharma clan is ‘ trying’ to do ‘something’ that sounds ‘equitable’. Ha! Ha! Ha!  As I see it, pointing fingers elsewhere–employees, instead of where much of the harm in vaccines really exists, in the pseudo science that apparently exists in vaccinology, as the U.S./whistleblowers’ lawsuit against Merck seemingly attests to. 
    Thanks for enhancing my article.

    What also is noteworthy about that article is its source, i.e., AIS, the news service for one of the health care industry’s lobbying organizations. The news chosen to be reported here always is that which translates into dollars and cents for the health care industry. What intrigued me, I think, was merely the fact that the OIG at DHHS actually would effect any sanction at all against Glaxo in light of these circumstances — whether such a sanction likely is to do any good, or make any sense, or not. I have had a fair share of run-ins personally with the OIG at DHHS.  This office at one time turned its back on proof of medical malfeasance as serious as, say, documentary evidence that a doctor purposely killed a Medicare patient for profit during the course of treatment.  So, to me, news of any sanctions that this office is willing to level against a perpetrator of fraud in health care is noteworthy in and of itself.

    This is of course good news but is it in my opinion at the same time a sick joke because  Jenner’s barbaric cowpox vaccine against smallpox was never appropriately tested for safety or efficacy and neither has any other vaccine that has been created since then. The whole industry is an absolute racket and should in my opinion be shut down for good to put an end to the fraud and corruption once and for all.
