NVIC Vaccine Updates

Story at-a-glance -

  • No vaccine exemptions in any state were lost this year — the third year in a row that we’ve been able to protect personal belief exemptions — but NVIC predicts an onslaught of bills aimed at removing vaccine exemptions in 2019, so get ready to stand up for your rights
  • Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) data shows seasonal influenza vaccine has been less than 50 percent effective against circulating strains more than half the time for the past 14 years and, last year, flu shots were only 36 percent effective at best
  • About 80 percent of suspected influenza case specimens sent for lab confirmation turn out to be other viruses and bacteria — not type A or B influenza — and the CDC’s estimates for annual influenza deaths are inaccurate
  • Like influenza vaccines, pertussis (whooping cough) vaccines are also failing and people can have pertussis (or influenza) without showing any symptoms whether or not they are vaccinated
