By Dr. Mercola

    A story that should serve as a wakeup call to all American parents 

is currently making headline news: A Staten Island kindergartner has been barred
from attending school because she hasn’t been vaccinated against chickenpox—
even though her pediatrician refuses to vaccinate her on grounds that it may
endanger the health of her baby sister.

    Chickenpox is caused by the varicella zoster virus, which is a member of
the herpes virus family and is associated with herpes zoster (shingles).

    While highly contagious, it typically produces a mild disease
characterized by small round lesions on your skin that cause intense itching
that lasts for two to three weeks. Recovery leaves a child with long-lasting

    The case of Frankie Wagner is a disturbing reminder of how far the US
government is going in its illogical pursuit of maximizing vaccine adherence.

    US public health officials say your child should receive 69 doses of 16
different vaccines before age 18. And, believe it or not, Big Pharma has 145
more vaccines in the pipeline.

    Many homeowners pay property taxes that are directly allocated for the
public schools, but it is clear our government is willing to take this money
even though your children may not utilize the educational services if they
don't keep up with the medical procedures dictated - 69 doses of vaccines
before they graduate!

Pediatrician’s Advice Ignored by Department of Education

    According to Frankie’s mother, Elizabeth, the girl’s pediatrician does
not administer live virus vaccines, like varicella zoster vaccine, to
children in families with infants as they could contract vaccine strain
infections. The Wagner’s other daughter is only 14-weeks old and her
mother has good reason to suspect her baby daughter could have inherited
an immunodeficiency disease.

Elizabeth told NBC News:

        "I don't care if it's a one in 3 million chance. I am not willing to
take the chance with my baby."

    The family requested a medical exemption from the Department of Education
(DOE), which was denied even though Elizabeth herself has an immunodeficiency
disease that her baby girl may have inherited. The disease would increase the
baby’s vulnerability to contracting vaccine strain chickenpox from the live
virus vaccine, but tests to determine if she’s inherited immunodeficiency
cannot be performed until she’s one year old.

    According to the DOE, the exemption was denied "after a thorough review
with the parent and the student's doctor."

    Wisely, the Wagner’s are arranging for Frankie to be home schooled, but
this case should really serve as a wakeup call to parents everywhere. Is
forcing a child to get a vaccine to try to prevent a typically benign
childhood disease really worth the risk to other vulnerable family members,
and/or the child herself—especially when a child’s doctor has concluded that
the vaccine’s risks are likely to be greater than the benefits?

    This new form of discrimination and segregation is well underway.

Denying Education to Force a Non-Essential Vaccine

    Merck's chickenpox vaccine was approved for licensure in the US in 1995.
At that time, what had always been regarded as a relatively benign childhood
illness was suddenly reinvented as a life-threatening disease for which
children must get vaccinated or face dire health consequences.

    Before the live virus chickenpox vaccine was recommended for all children
by the CDC and states started passing laws mandating that children get it to
attend school, most children acquired a natural, longer-lasting immunity to
chickenpox by age six. Before 1995, it was estimated that only 10 percent of
Americans over the age of 15 had not had chickenpox.

    For 99.9 percent of healthy children, chickenpox is a mild disease without
complications. However, up to 20 percent of adults who get chickenpox
develop severe complications such as pneumonia, secondary bacterial
infections, and brain inflammation (which is reported in less than one
percent of children who get chickenpox). Most children and adults who develop
these serious complications have compromised immune systems or other health

    Still, it is because chickenpox can be serious in adults that it is often
regarded as preferable to get it as a child, as opposed to later in adulthood.
It is estimated there were about 3.7 million cases of chickenpox annually
in the US before 1995, resulting in an average of 100 deaths (50
children and 50 adults). This hardly represents a dire, life-threatening
childhood disease that requires mandatory vaccination of all children...

Why Mandate a Risky Yet Ineffective Vaccine?

    The chickenpox vaccine is made from live, attenuated (weakened) varicella
virus. Unlike the type of immunity acquired from experiencing the disease,
the vaccine provides only TEMPORARY immunity, and that immunity is not the
same kind of superior, longer lasting immunity you get when you recover
naturally from chickenpox.

    It's important to realize that naturally recovering from chickenpox is
the ONLY way you can establish longer lasting immunity that will protect you
until you come in contact with younger children with chickenpox and are
asymptomatically boosted, which will not only reinforce your chickenpox
immunity but will also help protect you against getting a painful case of
shingles later in life. Merck has developed and is marketing a shingles
vaccine but that is an inferior solution.

    Recent research has also cast major doubts on the effectiveness of the
chickenpox vaccine, which is now also associated with a rise in the numbers
of cases of shingles in older children and adults. As chickenpox vaccination
coverage has increased in the U.S., so has the incidence of shingles
increased—giving evidence for the risks associated with relying on vaccine-
acquired immunity. A review of the American varicella (chickenpox)
vaccination program, published just last year, concluded that the vaccine

        Not proven to be cost-effective
        Increased the incidence of shingles

        Failed to provide long-term protection from the disease it targets
chicken pox as vaccine efficacy was found to have declined well below 80
percent by 2002

        Is less effective than the natural immunity that existed in the general
population before the vaccine was used on a widespread basis in the U.S.

    Yet despite such damning evidence, and the health risks for the Wagner’s
youngest daughter, the DOE still believes vaccination is in the best interest
of everyone involved... In the Wagner case, the infant may have inherited an
immunodeficiency disease that would increase her susceptibility to the virus
in the vaccine. And the chickenpox vaccine is already associated with adverse
effects in one in 1,481 vaccinations.

    Between March 1995 and July 1998, the federal Vaccine Adverse Events
Reporting System (VAERS) received 6,574 reports of health problems after
chickenpox vaccination. Four percent of reported adverse events (about 1 in
33,000 doses) involved serious health problems such as shock, encephalitis
(brain inflammation), and thrombocytopenia (a blood disorder), and 14 of the
6,574 chickenpox vaccine adverse event reports ended in death.

    These are far higher odds of something going wrong than the one in three
million chance Mrs. Wagner said she wasn’t willing to take... Furthermore,
there are documented cases of accidental transmission of varicella vaccine
strain virus from a vaccinated child to other household contacts, including
transmission to a pregnant woman, so the concern the Wagner’s and their
pediatrician have is a real one.

Sun Exposure May Help Stop the Spread of Chickenpox

    Interestingly enough, according to research published in 2011, data from
25 studies on the varicella-zoster virus, which causes chickenpox, shows a
clear link between UV levels and the prevalence of chickenpox. Chickenpox
rates are much lower in the tropics where exposure to sunlight is common
year-round. In temperate regions, chickenpox also tends to flare up more
often in the darker, cold-weather months. The authors speculate that UV
radiation can inactivate the virus, either within the lesions, or perhaps
after the lesions rupture.

    The effect is likely two-fold. Not only is sunlight able to destroy many
viruses directly, it also enables your body to produce vitamin D, which gives
you anti-viral and immune-boosting benefits. If your child has been exposed
to chickenpox, a healthy dose of natural sunlight may be just what the doctor
ordered. However, sunlight exposure to active lesions may result in permanent
scarring, so it would be best to avoid sunshine during this phase.

    Many are not aware that prior to the advent of antibiotics about 70 years
ago one of the only effective treatments for tuberculosis was sunlight. In
fact, many solariums were created specifically to treat TB with UV radiation.
Today, researchers are looking into the possibility of replacing antibiotics
with blue light therapy—especially for antibiotic-resistant infections.

Why We Must Fight to Protect Philosophical Exemption to Vaccination

    Informed consent to medical risk taking is a human right. You have the
right to be fully informed about the benefits and risks of pharmaceutical
products – like vaccines - and be allowed to make a voluntary choice about
whether or not you decide to take the risk, without being punished for it.

More than $2.5 billion dollars has been awarded to children and adults in
America, who have been seriously injured by vaccines. Yet those rights are
increasingly being taken away from us.

    For example, last year in Vermont, the legal right to take a vaccine
exemption for philosophical beliefs was threated with bills promoted by two
Vermont legislators, State Senator Kevin Mullin and State Representative
George Till. They joined with the Vermont Health Commissioner, Dr. Harry
Chen, to lead a crusade to take away philosophical exemption to vaccination
but the bills went down in defeat after supporters of the National Vaccine
Information Center (NVIC) and Vermont Coalition for Vaccine Choice educated
legislators and the public about the need to keep the philosophical exemption
from being stripped from Vermont public health laws.

    In the following video, Barbara Loe Fisher of the NVIC interviews Nicole,
a Vermont mother, whose seven year old daughter, Kaylynne, died within 92
hours of a routine flu shot in December 2011. Nicole believes that parents
should be fully informed and able to make voluntary decisions about
vaccination for their children.

        “If I would have known the reactions and symptoms of adverse
reactions to vaccination, I would have had her seen immediately. If I would
have known about the risks and symptoms, I would have been most likely able
to save my daughter,” said Nicole. “I feel that Vermonters need to be
educated and be able to make their own decisions on whether or not they want
to vaccinate their children and pediatricians and physicians, as well, need
to be more educated.”

    While the NVIC led a successful effort with the Vermont parent group to
preserve the philosophical exemption to vaccination in Vermont last year,
legislators in Vermont are coming around again this session, attacking the
philosophical and religious exemptions to vaccination. They now want to pass
a law (HB138) that says that if vaccination rates in schools gets below 90
percent then both those exemptions will be suspended. VT legislators also
have introduced a bill that would require pertussis vaccinations for
childcare workers and teachers (HB 114).

Protect Your Right to Informed Consent and Defend Vaccine Exemptions

    Needless to say, do your own research before making your decisions.
Interestingly, a recent article in Time Magazine reports that at least 95
percent of parents consult their “people networks” for advice on vaccines.
This is a trend that the vaccine industry takes quite seriously, and
according to one researcher, “changing parents’ attitudes about vaccines may
be a matter of influencing the people who are influencing parents in the
first place.” But it shouldn’t be about who can appeal to your senses or
emotions most effectively. It should be about getting to the truth, and
understanding the risks and benefits involved. According to the article:

        “Parents who didn’t follow vaccination advice were also more likely
to have extensive 'source networks' — troves of books, websites and magazine
articles they turned to for vaccine-related information.”

    While Time makes it sound as though parents who read extensively are
somehow reading the wrong material, I cannot think of a better way to get
informed about the multiple viewpoints. Also, with all the uncertainty
surrounding the safety and efficacy of vaccines, it's critical to protect
your right to informed consent to vaccination and fight to protect and expand
vaccine exemptions in state public health laws. The best way to do this is to
get personally involved with your state legislators and the leaders in your
