There Is No Freedom Without Health Freedom


Starting in July 2018, Vaccination News will no longer be manually updating the news because I can no longer afford to do it and I get almost no financial help.  I have tried numerous solutions, including charging $10/yr but even that was too much for but a few people.

To see what the news will look like, scroll down the page to the RSS feed articles.

I welcome the opportunity to continue as before by receiving the necessary funding, so am giving everyone enough of heads up to possibly come up with it.  Costs, including legal and technical fees, are about $20,000/year, most of which I have been covering for many years.

All the best,

Sandy Gottstein

It's less clear whether Fawcett's story will have any effect on promotion of a vaccine that targets HPV, human papilloma virus, which is blamed for cervical cancer and linked to most anal cancers. ... Piro, Fawcett's doctor, said Gardasil is an important but underused defense against cancer, and strongly endorsed increased vaccinations. But he and others stopped short of saying it should be touted as a measure that will save women from Fawcett's fate. HPV has been linked to roughly 70 percent of all anal cancers, and is believed to cause 90 percent of the squamous-cell form of anal cancer. Fawcett had the squamous-cell type of cancer. But in an interview with The Associated Press, Piro said 'her tumor was not necessarily associated with' HPV. He declined further detail, citing her medical privacy."

But it is not a slam-dunk that regulatory authorities south of the border will clear adjuvanted flu vaccines for a U.S. mass vaccination campaign -- if one takes place -- this fall, some American experts say. 'The risk-benefit of using an adjuvant in a population in which you don't have a lot of data, i.e. younger people . . . has to be balanced against ... what's going on,' says Dr. Anthony Fauci, head of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases."
