HOW MANY BOOSTER SHOTS?
How many childhood inoculations did you get? Immune System and DNA damage of repeated booster shots. Warnings on 2015 push for measles vaccine and the 2020 National ADULT inoculation plan.
INOCULATING THE IMMUNE SYSTEM
Barbara J. Andrews, TheDogPlace.org Publisher
Inoculations protect against disease but the immune system and DNA damage caused by today’s array of new vaccines reads like a Robin Cook book!
If you’re over 50, you made it this far on polio, mumps, measles, chickenpox, whooping cough vaccines and a couple of tetanus shots along the way. So hold that thought because this little dose of vaccine information will make you think twice about giving your pet another booster shot or compromising your own health with unnecessary or excessive immunizations.
Did you know that China recorded the first inoculation (smallpox) before 200 BC? Troublesome facts. We often credit Edward Jenner (a British doctor) for discovering vaccines in 1796 when he successfully tested a vaccine for cowpox. Louis Pasteur is credited with developing the rabies vaccine.
Those historic events launched a research revolution which saved thousands of lives. Unfortunately, it also brought forth a highly profitable plethora of vaccines. The newborn pharmaceutical industry began to develop inoculations for everything from warts to pneumonia and even for rare diseases such as leptospirosis and Lyme disease.
This does not discount the value of life-saving vaccines such as polio, tetanus and typhoid, or basic puppy and childhood inoculations. It is the unproven, ineffective and potentially dangerous vaccines in both human and veterinary medicine that should be avoided.
The vaccine debate crystallized in 2009 when media hype created a pandemic leading to mass inoculation against H1N1 (swine flu) but even before that, professionals in the dog sport had reason to be concerned. “Dog show crud” swept the 2005 January show circuit in Florida.  The implications of that event clearly involve both species-jumping and research at the nearby University Of Florida.
By 2010, savvy dog breeders were rethinking vaccine protocol and the public said “no way” to that year’s “get your flu shots here” signs at drugstores across the county.
Then, in early 2011 Apple entrepreneur Bill Gates invested $10 million in Liquidia Technologies, a closely held biotech company that also developed a seasonal flu vaccine. Bloomberg says this is just part of a $400 million initiative to help poor countries and perhaps work on new malaria vaccines. Liquidia is based in NC at Research Triangle Park, close to AKC’s offices.
The side effects of the Gardasil cervical cancer vaccine ii recently mandated for elementary school boys, are seriously significant. The National Cancer Institute (NCI) says it is “nearly 100% effective” for four years but re-vaccination may be needed. The Merck vaccine introduced in 2006 was made mandatory in some states even though it costs over $360 total for the three required doses. By 2009, 40 million doses of the Gardasil vaccine had been distributed world-wide despite confirmed fatalities and side effects, one of which is infertility.
Here’s the catch, vaccines for slow developing disease such as cervical cancer, have not and can not be proven because they take 10 to 20 years to develop. So while vaccines such as Gardasil offer great hope, they are as yet unproven.
My studied conclusion is that pharmaceutical companies prey on children and pets as the most vulnerable because they are the most loved by gullible parents and owners who would do anything to "protect" them. .
So is it any surprise that pet owners are inundated with advice on getting their pups inoculated? Breeders, if you don’t already know the immune system risks for that show puppy you’ve put your heart, soul, and vacation money in to, spend 30 minutes soaking up the authoritative vaccine information contained in TheDogPlace/Vaccines  section. The facts are not new but vaccine risks have been effectively suppressed by vaccine manufacturers and more to the point, medical and veterinary students learn vaccine protocols taught by the vaccine producers!
Here’s what one of the leading vaccine authorities had to say about another of those “new” canine diseases in Oct. 2010. “The Canine Influenza is a first time recorded entire genome jump of the Equine Influenza to the dogs (canines) and both were created by man. Man makes a vaccine of Equine Influenza and squirts this up the noses of Thoroughbreds on the race tracks. It is a modified live version and the viruses get sprayed out into the environment that is shared with racing greyhounds. Now, thanks to the use of the horse vaccine, the dogs now suffer this virus. Canine flu is very lethal as these viruses always are once they start to be accommodated into another host. It takes a while for that next host to develop immune response against the new virus.” - Patricia Jordan, DVM, VND, CVA, CTCVM & Herbology
Pharmaceutical companies, like vets, provide invaluable service to pet owners. They prevent disease, improve animal health and save lives. However, the vaccine science coming out today exposes the underbelly of the beast. Excessive puppy shots, booster shots, and rabies revaccinations can destroy health and shorten the lives of our beloved pets. Extrapolate that knowledge to human health.
There is a bright side. June 2012, after 2 years of development, researchers at NY’s Cornell Medical College announced that they have succeeded with a vaccine for cocaine addition  which is effective in “monkeys and mice injected with cocaine.” The vaccine is “still in the labs” but could be available for humans in 2 years.
Canine Rabies Vaccine is required in all states, administered as early as 12 weeks, again at 12 months, and then every one to four years depending on state law. There is significant risk associated with such early and repeated inoculation but rabies shots are considered necessary for protection of the human population.
Canine DHLPP contains distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis, parainfluenza, and parvovirus vaccine and is still used in many veterinary practices. Given the clear evidence of risk to the dog’s immune system, it was shocking to find vets and breeders who routinely administer DHLPP vaccine. It was even more distressing to find DHLPP shots administered at “8, 10, 12, 16 and 20 weeks of age and then yearly in a majority of veterinary practices surveyed!
Canine Bordetella is otherwise known as “kennel cough” and for that reason, it is required if you want to board your dog or take part in training classes. A classic example of pharmaceutical marketing success made possible by veterinary greed. It is what it is, a cough of short duration not given to complications. Although we are told dogs don’t get “colds” the similarity to the common cold is unmistakable. Now, given a new name, it has been added to the inoculation madness. I have never given bordetella vaccine and never had a dog or even one of my breeding affected.
Canine Coronavirus (FIP in cats) is a disease condition of very young puppies, made susceptible due to rapidly developing cells in the intestinal lining. Coronavirus causes moderate to severe diarrhea and should be treated. It is most likely to infect puppies prior to 6 weeks, i.e. prior to vaccination age. Coronavirus is rarely fatal and in fact, most adult dogs are immune and when tested, show antibodies indicating a prior exposure. Coronavirus vaccine is considered unnecessary by most breeders and knowledgeable vets.
Lyme disease (Borrelia burgdorferei) is transmitted by ticks and thankfully, this vaccine is NOT on the revised core vaccine list. It has been soundly challenged and my latest report on Plum Island brought tremendous response from readers, not all of it favorable. Oh well. Interestingly, one major vaccine company charged their competitor with having released a canine Lyme vaccine when no case of Lyme disease has ever been diagnosed in a dog. Lyme disease cases are no longer limited to the northeastern states but confirmed diagnosis in dogs is rare. Before you inoculate your dog with a combo-vaccine, again, get the facts on Lymes .
Giardia is a protozoan that causes diarrhea which is usually self-limiting but can be treated symptomatically. Giardia vaccine is new, unproven, and probably based on the hypothesis that since it exists in humans (usually due to poorly treated water supply or personal hygiene) owners may have heard of it and want to prevent it in their pets.
