An Open Letter Reply to California HHS Secretary Dooley Regarding Her Mandating Mercury-laden Flu Vaccines For Children

An Open Letter Reply to State of California Health and Human Services Secretary Dooley Regarding Her Mandating Mercury-laden Flu Vaccines be given to Children Six Months and Older

Dear Secretary Dooley:

Below is a copy of the letter you issued October 9, 2015 wherein you suspended California Health and Safety Code Section 124172 in order to administer ethylmercury-laden (Thimerosal) flu vaccines to children six months and older.

Pardon my asking, but “Are you crazy? When was your last mental evaluation to validate your ability to serve in your position as ‘Secretary of Health and Human Services Agency’”?

Your comment,

“Young children are at increased risk of severe or fatal illness from influenza,”

needs to be validated with accurate statistical data since flu vaccines are nothing short of worthless in preventing influenza, but also can be the vector by which influenza is spread, e.g., vaccine shedding.

Furthermore, the prestigious Cochrane Library published these findings regarding flu vaccines in children:

The review authors found that in children aged from two years, nasal spray vaccines made from weakened influenza viruses were better at preventing illness caused by the influenza virus than injected vaccines made from the killed virus. Neither type was particularly good at preventing ‘flu- like illness’ caused by other types of viruses. In children under the age of two, the efficacy of _ inactivated vaccine was similar to placebo. It was not possible to analyse [sic] the safety of _ vaccines from the studies due to the lack of standardisation [sic] in the information given, but _ very little information was found on the safety of inactivated vaccines, the most commonly used _ vaccine in young children.

Under the authors’ Conclusions, this:

Influenza vaccines are efficacious in preventing cases of influenza in children older than two years _ of age, but little evidence is available for children younger than two years of age. [….]
This review includes trials funded by industry. An earlier systematic review of 274 influenza vaccine studies published up to 2007 found industry-funded studies were published in more prestigious journals and cited more than other studies independently from methodological quality and size. Studies funded from public sources were significantly less likely to report _ conclusions favourable [sic] to the vaccines. The review showed that reliable evidence on influenza _ vaccines is thin but there is evidence of widespread manipulation of conclusions and spurious _ notoriety of the studies. The content and conclusions of this review should be interpreted in the light of this finding. (Source)

Can you please tell me how many children in the State of California died from authenticated state-laboratory-tested results validating their demise was due to a specific influenza virus rather than pneumonia or some other ILI (influenza-like illness)? May I please have that information?

Influenza deaths notoriously are inflated, especially by the U.S. CDC, to promote Big Pharma flu vaccines, which the U.S. government subsidizes.

Please study this chart to see that your information about child flu deaths is patently overhyped, probably to instill fear and compliance.


Chart source:

As anyone with half-a-functioning-brain can read and understand, the U.S. CDC reported NATIONALLY only a total of 171 pediatric influenza deaths for the entire 2012-2013 flu season; 111 for 2013-2014; 147 for 2014-2015; and 2 so far for 2015-2016. The flu season in North America runs during the cold months of each year.

How do the above figures back up your statement:

“Young children are at increased risk of severe or fatal illness from influenza.”?

I wholeheartedly empathize that even one death from influenza for a child or an adult is not warranted, and should be prevented, but pumping neurotoxins into humans who are just starting out in life (six months and older) certainly is nothing short of lunacy, since their developing brains, blood brain barriers, immune systems, and detox organs, e.g., liver and kidneys, are not on par with an adult’s capabilities, plus their body masses are under 25 pounds. Don’t you know anything about biology or biochemistry—or wasn’t that a prerequisite for your current job. Were you a “political appointee”?

Are you familiar with the following influenza deaths information? If not, why not, since I would imagine that information ought to be a predicating factor for your decision(s) as HHSA Secretary and not “peer-pressure and consensus-pharma-driven-requests”? In the following information, P stands for pneumonia, whereas I stands for influenza.

Among 14,628 P&I deaths reported through the 122 Cities Mortality Reporting System from September 29, 2013 to February 8, 2014, a total of 571 (3.9%) were influenza-associated (i.e., they had influenza listed on the death certificate as an underlying or contributing cause of death), of which 352 (62%) were in persons aged 25-64 years, 194 (34%) in persons aged ≥65 years, and 25 (4%) in persons aged 0-24 years. (Source)

For numerous years the U.S. CDC notoriously claimed that close to 40,000 deaths occurred each year from influenza. They had to back off that assertion after it had been challenged by independent researchers. Inciting and practicing public health fear tactics should be prosecuted as criminal activity, in my humble opinion.

May I remind you, Madame Secretary, of the following dramatic health issues in your state?

California Autism Rates Soar

Sure enough, in an April 1999 report ( DDS found a 273 percent increase between 1987 and 1998 in the numbers of new children entering the California developmental services system with a professional diagnosis of autism. The report concluded that “the number of persons with autism grew markedly faster than the number of persons with other developmental disabilities (cerebral palsy, epilepsy and mental retardation)” and “compared to characteristics of 11 years ago, the present population of persons with autism are younger (and) have a greater chance of exhibiting no or milder forms of mental retardation. . . .”

Although autism has been cited by public health officials and autism researchers to occur in 2 to 10 in 10,000 children nationwide, the Centers for Disease Control in a report released in April 2000 found the incidence of autism in Brick Township, New Jersey in 1998 was 1 in 150 children (the incidence in the Granite Bay, California public elementary school district is 1 in 132 children), which may be more reflective of the true rate of autism in the U.S. today. The Autism Society of America estimates that “more than one-half million people in the U.S. today have autism or some form of pervasive developmental disorder,” making autism one of the most common developmental disabilities. (Source)

After the California report documented the dramatic increases in autism in the past decade, the California legislature voted to appropriate one million dollars to the UC-Davis M.I.N.D. Institute to look for environmental and biological factors, including vaccine use, that could have contributed to this autism increase. At the same time, parents began to check autism statistics in other states. (Source)

Are you familiar with what I underscored above? If not, why not? Your October 9, 2015 action of exempting California Health and Safety Code Section 124172 for the current seasonal influenza vaccine with trace levels of Thimerosal soars in defiance of the state legislature’s actions to prevent an increase in autism.

Your action, if you will pardon my candor, ought to be prosecutable at law, in my opinion, not only for incompetence but child abuse, I think. Damaging a young child with ethylmercury (49.6 percent in Thimerosal) is totally outrageous, and in violation of EPA regulations for mercury allowed in drinking water, plus biological science.

You can’t handle the truth about vaccines (Ad)

Since this is an open letter that will be published online and read globally, I encourage all readers—especially Californians—to telephone you at (916) 654-3454 to let you know what they think.

State of California

October 9, 2015


The Honorable Kevin de Leon President pro Tempore State Capitol, Room 205 Sacramento, CA 95814

The Honorable Toni G. Atkins Speaker of the Assembly State Capitol, Room 219 Sacramento, CA 95814

The Honorable Jean Fuller Senate Republican Leader State Capitol, Room 305 Sacramento, CA 95814

The Honorable Kristin Olsen Assembly Republican Leader State Capitol Sacramento, CA 95814

Dear Senate pro Tem de Leon, Assembly Speaker Atkins, Senate Republican Leader Fuller, and Assembly Republican Leader Olsen:

I am writing to inform you that I am granting a temporary exemption from California Health and Safety Code Section 124172 for seasonal influenza vaccine with trace levels of thimerosal to be administered to children younger than three years from October 9, 2015 through December 31, 2015, because the current supply of thimerosal-free vaccine for young children is inadequate.

This exemption was requested by the California District of the American Academy of Pediatrics, the California Academy of Family Physicians, the California Medical Association and the California Immunization Coalition, and has been recommended by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH).

The federal Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices and the CDPH recommend that all persons six months and older, especially young children, receive influenza vaccine each year for their protection.

Young children are at increased risk of severe or fatal illness from influenza. While thimerosal-free formulations of influenza vaccine administered to adults in the United States appear to be ample, there are currently limited supplies of thimerosal-free seasonal influenza vaccine to protect California’s young children, many of whom will need two doses of vaccine for maximal protection.

I have written the manufacturer, Sanofi Pasteur, urging it to take any and all steps necessary to promptly address the shortage of this influenza vaccine, and asking it to provide an immediate and clear timeline on the availability of the vaccine so that all necessary actions may be taken to protect California’s children.

We will continue to assess the need for an extension of this temporary exemption over this period, and will be in regular contact with the manufacturer to assess product availability and to continue to monitor the vaccine supply.

Similar exemptions are in place at present in other states that have restrictions on mercury content, including Illinois and Iowa. I am granting this temporary exemption because of the health risk posed to California by influenza, and because there are inadequate supplies of this vaccine to comply with the law.

In accordance with the intent of the law, during this exemption period immunizers should prioritize available supplies of thimerosal-free vaccine to young children.

Please do not hesitate to contact me at (916) 654-3454 if you have any questions.
