Vaccination does Not equal Immunization

This is really important, and short, so please hear me out. Vaccination does not equal Immunization. If you have been told that it does, you have been misled.

Doctors and pharmaceutical companies tell us that if a vaccine creates antibodies in a person then it is a success, it has conferred immunity to that person. That these antibodies will be able to deal with any further invasion of the body by the virus, bacteria or toxin contained in the vaccine, (these are referred to as pathogens). They tell us that these antibodies mean that the body’s immune system can, and will, destroy that pathogen if it meets it in the future. This is simply, just not true. All that the presence of antibodies in a person means is that the person has come into contact with a particular pathogen, it does not mean that they have immunity. Let me explain.

The way that vaccines are tested for efficacy is as follows. In a laboratory the pathogen of the vaccine is tested, in a test tube, to see if it can stimulate antibody production. Then these antibodies are tested to see if they can recognize and attach to the real or wild pathogen. Then two assumptions are made. 1) It is assumed that the vaccine will stimulate the same response in a real life person and 2) it is assumed that these antibodies are responsible for the destruction and elimination of the pathogen. We have no proof of either.

Antibodies were discovered at the end of the 19th century. Scientists noted that when a person developed a disease they produced antibodies that encapsulated pathogens and stayed in the body after the pathogen was eliminated. They therefore deduced that the antibody would deal with any subsequent exposure to that pathogen. Again no proof, just an assumption.

In his book “Vaccines – This book could remove the fear of childhood illness,” Trevor Gunn (medical biochemist) asked Dr Clements, Director of the World Health Organisation, Extended Program of Immunisations, in October 1995, “to comment on the fact that an individual can have high levels of antibody and may not be immune, whilst others with no detectable levels can be immune.” Dr Clements replied “You are right to say there is not a precise relationship between seroresponse (production of antibodies) and protection…immunity can be demonstrated in individuals with very low or no detectable levels of anitbody.”

So you see, antibody levels do not equal immunity. So vaccination does not equal immunity.

It is not known what causes immunity. What is known, based on observation of populations over the centuries, is that if a person catches the wild pathogen it almost always equals lifelong immunity. What is known is that if a vaccine does confer immunity, this immunity is limited to a short period of 2 to 10 years. So if someone receives a vaccine they have no way of knowing if they have immunity or not because the medical industry’s test of antibody levels means nothing.

Knowing this it is important to weigh up the risk of the known side effects of vaccines, for the possible conferring of limited immunity, against the catching of the actual wild pathogen and lifelong immunity.
