Dr. Mercola Interviews Dr. Meryl Nass on Vaccine Adaptations

Story at-a-glance -

  • The widespread use of vaccinations may trigger bacterial adaptations leading to antibiotic-resistant bacterial diseases and vaccine-resistant viral diseases.
  • This can happen through several mechanisms. These include mutation (Hepatitis B vaccine), reversion to virulence (Oral Polio vaccine) or strain replacement (Prevnar 7). Strain replacement, in the case of Prevnar 7, meant that following widespread vaccination with Prevnar 7, other pneumococcal strains that were not included in the vaccine became much more likely to cause pneumococcal infections. One of these, 19S, was known to be multi-antibiotic resistant.
  • Hemophilus influenzae cases also increased, filling in the niche that had been created by Prevnar, and about 40% of these infections are multi-drug resistant.
  • When Prevnar, a vaccine used against pneumonia, meningitis, and bloodstream infections, was first introduced, it protected against seven pneumococcal strains, but was soon linked to an increase in rates of antibiotic-resistant infections due to 19S pneumococci and hemophilus influenzae. The vaccine was then modified to include 13 pneumococcal strains to combat the 19S problem. However, the new vaccine will not improve the increase in hemophilus infections, and may make that problem worse.
  • In the United States ear infections, sinus infections, bronchitis, pneumonia and meningitis, which are often caused by pneumococcal bacteria or hemophilus, have become much harder and more expensive to treat because of increasing resistance to antibiotics. This is due in part to the widespread use of the Prevnar vaccine.
  • Vaccines have also been implicated in causing new, vaccine-resistant strains of whooping cough, hepatitis and polio.

By Dr. Mercola

The average person in the United States and, for that matter, most of the world has been convinced – or a better term might be "manipulated" – that there is an overwhelming benefit received from vaccines.
