Putting Measles into Proper Perspective—According to the Facts

by Catherine J. Frompovich

Just WHAT are the facts regarding measles? readers may be asking.

Fact There are 23 strains/genotypes of measles: “The WHO [World Health Organization] currently recognizes 8 clades, designated A, B, C, D, E, F, G, and H. Within these clades there are 23 recognized genotypes, designated A, B1, B2, B3, C1, C2, D1, D2, D3, D4, D5, D6, D7, D8, D9, D10, E, F, G1, G2, G3, H1, and H2, and 1 provisional genotype, d11.” [1]

Which strain/genotype of measles is in the MMR vaccine?

Fact – According to the MMRII vaccine package insert, it’s the “Enders’ attenuated Edmonston strain” [2] an attenuated live strain, which is genotype A [3].

Which strain of measles was found in the Disneyland, California, outbreak that has caused panic in parents and nothing short of vaccine anarchy?

Fact – According to the U.S. CDC’s Health Alert Network (HAN),

Measles genotype information was available from 9 measles cases; all were genotype B3 [New York USA] and all sequences linked to this outbreak are identical. [4]

Therefore, what that means is that a different strain/genotype [B3] of measles is circulating in the USA from the measles strain/genotype in the MMRII vaccine—genotype A. Consequently, both vaccinated and non-vaccinated persons with weak immunities can contract measles.

Furthermore, the strain/genotype of “Disneyland” measles was confirmed by scientific testing known as PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction). So, the measles vaccine does not provide antigen response ‘immunity’ for the B3, just the Edmonston A genotype. Now you know why so many people are contracting measles: Even though they are vaccinated, they have no immunity!

Additionally, the CDC also advises that since the Edmonston strain of measles is an attenuated live strain, recently vaccinated children are capable of infecting other people they come in contact with for up to two weeks! One of the CDC’s own senior epidemiologists, Dr. William Atkinson, stated, “Measles transmission has clearly been documented among vaccinated persons.” Furthermore, in 1995 the Journal of Clinical Microbiology documented that vaccinees could become active disease carriers in an article titled, “Detection of Measles Virus RNA in Urine Specimens from Vaccine Recipients” [5]. The most probable reason is that the vaccine weakens the immune system thereby making vaccinees more susceptible to measles. [6]

Vaccinees also can come down with measles from the vaccine! According to Live Science,

About 3 percent of people who receive two doses of the measles vaccine will get measles if they come in contact with someone who has the virus, according to the CDC. [7]

So, readers now can understand a lot more about the apparent “consensus-science“ the CDC/FDA and health agencies everywhere have been telling the media, public, and parents. Even though the CDC/FDA claim it is the unvaccinated who are spreading measles, here are some hardcore statistics regarding measles outbreaks in the United States.

According to the New England Journal of Medicine 1987; 316:771-74; Journal of the American Medical Association 1990; 263:2467-71; and several CDC MMWR reports, Measles occurred in the following years, school populations and the percent that were vaccinated:

  • 1984 58 percent of all school age children who contracted measles were vaccinated
  • 1985 99 percent in the Corpus Christi, Texas, measles outbreak were fully vaccinated
  • 1986 96 percent of the Dane County, Wisconsin, measles outbreak were vaccinated
  • 1988 69 percent of all school age children who contracted measles were vaccinated
  • 1989 89 percent of all school age children who contracted measles were vaccinated
  • 1995 56 percent of all measles cases occurred in previously vaccinated persons [8]

As an aside, here’s something readers ought to know about measles:

Atypical measles occurred in children who received formalin-inactivated (killed) measles vaccine that was in use in the United States from 1963 to 1968 [34]. These children developed high fever, a rash that was most prominent on the extremities and often included petechiae, and a high rate of pneumonitis [3436]. Recent studies in monkeys indicate that this illness was caused by antigen-antibody immune complexes resulting from incomplete maturation of the antibody response to the vaccine [3738]. [9] [CJF emphasis added]

So, you see, there are problems with vaccines, which are not being fully disclosed by medical personnel other than “get your damn shots!”

Formalin is a form of formaldehyde. Currently, formaldehyde is an ingredient in vaccines. [12] It’s rather interesting that recent research indicated that there were problems with the antigen response capabilities of the 1963-68 vaccine, which basically did not enable the vaccinees’ bodies to make a complete “antigen antibody response”, which vaccinology considers ‘immunity’. Are vaccines effective?

According to statistics, there have been no deaths in the USA from “wild measles”, i.e., strains not included in the vaccine, since 2005. However, according to the VAERS reports during a ten-year span, there have been 108 deaths from the MMR vaccine, 68 of them in children who were under three years of age. (Source)

According to VaccinationLiberation.org

FACT: Before the vaccine was introduced, it was extremely rare for an infant to contract measles. However, by 1993 more than 25% of all measles cases were occurring in babies under one year old. CDC (Centre for Disease Control) officials attribute it to the growing number of mothers who were vaccinated during the 1960’s, ‘70’s, and ‘80’s. (When natural immunity is denied, measles protection cannot be passed onto their babies.) 8 [10] [CJF emphasis added]

FACT: According to a study by the World Health Organisation (W.H.O.), those vaccinated against measles are 14 times more likely to contract the disease than those left unvaccinated. 13 [11]

The exalted state of “herd immunity” that federal and state health agencies keep promoting, as if akin to attaining ‘nirvana’, is nothing more, in my opinion, than a fabrication of medical semantics, as anyone can realize from the measles vaccine alone that there are many more strains/genotypes of infectious diseases—measles in this case, which are not covered in vaccinations and which vaccines cannot provide immunity for.

Furthermore, vaccines ‘tag’ the immune system in a way that interferes with the workings of natural immunity. Vaccines activate the humoral branch, which now has been renamed the “adaptive branch,” rather than the innate branch of the immune system, and that just may be one of the causes for adverse reactions to vaccines, plus vaccine failures, I offer.


Another classic example of vaccine failure or ineffectiveness is the influenza vaccine. The 2014-15 strain is nothing short of a bust. On January 15, 2015, Reuters published, “More than three quarters of U.S. flu shots ineffective—report.” Any other defective, or ineffective, product would be recalled, but not vaccines—just keep pushing them into an unsuspecting and ever-obliging, vaccine-proselytized public!

Although and granted, there is one aspect of human health that all vaccines are very operative in—it is this: Syringing very toxic chemicals into infants, toddlers, teens, and adults! Here’s the chemical list from the CDC PinkBook of 2011:

Ovalbumin, human serum albumin, bovine albumin, aluminum hydroxide, aluminum hydroxyphosphate sulfate, aluminum phosphate, aluminum potassium sulfate, amino acids, ammonium sulfate, amphotericin B, ascorbic acid, bactopeptone, beta propiolactone, benzethonium chloride, brilliant green dye, calcium carbonate, calcium chloride, chlortetracycline, cystine, dextran, DNA, Dulbecco’s modified Eagle Medium, ethylenediamine- tetraacetic acid sodium, egg protein, ferric (III) nitrate, formaldehyde-formalin, gelatin, genetamicin, glucose glutamine, glutaraldehyde, glycerin, glycine, histidine, hydrochloric acid, hydrocortisone, lactose, magnesium stearate, magnesium sulfate, monosodium glutamate, mouse serum protein, MRC-5 cellular protein (aborted fetal cell line), neomycin, phenol, phenol red, 2-phenoxyethanol, phosphate buffers (eg.
