All live virus vaccines contain LIVE viruses. They may be weakened but they can still replicate in the right environment and infect both the vaccinated and “shed” to people around them for weeks after the vaccine is given.
➡Which vaccines are LIVE?
Chicken Pox- Varivax Section 5.4 (up to 6 weeks):
MMR- MMRII page 5 (Up to 28 days):
Shingles- Zostavax Section 5.2:
Rotavirus- Rotateq Section 5:5 (Up to 15 days, fecal shedding):
Small Pox- ACAM2000 Section 5:10 (Only used in the military but highly contagious):http://www.fda.gov/downloads/BiologicsBloodVaccines/Vaccines/ApprovedProducts/UCM142572.pdf
➡ But does that REALLY happen? Yes. Yes it can and does as these studies illustrate:
Varicella transfer after vaccine to pregnant mom:
Pub Med article on Rotavirus shedding:
Mumps Vaccine sheds:
Mumps vaccine sheds:
Measles virus sheds for 1-13 days after vaccination:
Mumps outbreak in Netherlands linked to those vaccinated twice with MMR:
Measles vaccinated child responsible for outbreak in British Columbia:
New York Measles outbreak linked to vaccinated:
Measles outbreak among the vaccinated:
We don’t know for certain how long shedding occurs because we don’t test for it long term or regularly but in rare instances, it has gone on for years:
➡ Additionally, the Dtap/Tdap and Polio vaccines that are NOT live has been shown to cause the vaccinated to become asymptomatic carriers whenever exposed, thus the vaccinated can be spreading the illness without knowing at any time:
Pertussis carrier: http://www.fda.gov/NewsEvents/Newsroom/PressAnnouncements/ucm376937.htm
Diphtheria carrier: http://www.cdc.gov/diphtheria/clinicians.html
The polio vaccine “does not stop transmission of the virus.” & “when a person immunized with IPV is infected with wild poliovirus, the virus can still multiply inside the intestines and be shed in the feces, risking continued circulation.” http://polioeradication.org/polio-today/polio-prevention/the-vaccines/ipv/
➡ You can also find that most medical facilities are aware of this. Johns Hopkins and St. Jude hospitals are just a few of many who post precautions for recently vaccinated visitors.
👍WHY does this matter?
Because society is so deathly afraid of these illnesses that they rush out and load up on vaccines and want to even pass laws forcing others to do the same….. but the science shows that it’s the vaccinated that are at a higher risk of infections and spreading the illnesses because they are routinely injected with them. Be aware of the infection and carrier risk each vaccine has when making your choice- AND take care when around the immune compromised if you have been recently vaccinated or around someone with the illnesses even if you don’t show symptoms.
