  "description": "<p>The influenza vaccine fails often. The influenza vaccines cause the development of IgE mediated<br>\nallergy to the influenza virus. The reason for failure include antigenic mismatch between vaccine strain<br>\nand wild virus, IgE mediated antigen neutralization, etc. Naturally acquired immunity against influenza<br>\nlasts for decades. Vaccine based immunity lasts for a few months. Replacing natural immunity with<br>\nvaccine-based immunity, progressively increases susceptibility over time. In 2016-18, between 46 and<br>\n68% of patients admitted to the ICU for severe influenza were vaccinated with the influenza vaccine, in<br>\nCalifornia. The influenza vaccine uptake in the general population in California during that same period<br>\nwas between 40-48%. This adds to evidence that not only does the influenza vaccine fail, it can<br>\ncontribute to increased disease severity. The increase in disease severity is due to patients suffering an<br>\nallergic reaction against the virus, concurrent with the influenza infection.<br>\nThe acellular pertussis vaccine (APV) fails to protect for more than a year in most patients, fails to<br>\nprovide mucosal immunity, fails to provide cell mediated immunity and fails to protect against airway<br>\ncolonization with Bordetella pertussis (BP) bacteria. Therefore the APV causes asymptomatic<br>\nspreading of BP. The exact opposite effect of herd immunity - herd spreading. The APV causes IgE<br>\nmediated sensitization directed against BP antigens. Therefore once colonized, continuing exposure to<br>\nBP antigens results in asthma. Colonization with BP can cause multiple sclerosis. The APV contains<br>\ncow&rsquo;s milk proteins used to manufacture the vaccine. The milk proteins include bovine casein, bovine<br>\ninsulin and bovine folate receptor proteins. The result is the development of milk allergy, type 1<br>\ndiabetes and autism respectively. Colonization can induce immune tolerance to BP, making an infection<br>\neven more dangerous and rendering the patient potentially unprotectable for life with a future pertussis<br>\nvaccine.</p>\n\n<p>&nbsp;</p>",
