Take a look at the insanity being circulated at our local health department here in Ottawa. This is botched science at its best. The thinking being that if one dose doesn’t work, just give more! Sort of like spanking a child. Also, if Mumps is what is needing to be addressed, why are they also proposing to re-immunize against Measles and Rubella (German Measles)? The latter has not reared its ugly little head for over 50 years and has been in fact declared “eradicated”. In fact, it is the allopathic medical community that tries to take credit for this, but we know this little scourge just naturally found its way on the decline all by itself without any vaccine. I particularly love the part at the end of her memo when she cites, “Fortunately, mumps is preventable through immunization, so advertising our clinics as much as possible is very important.” Um, is she so entirely stupid to think that the audience she is writing to isn’t going to catch such an obvious contradiction? Hello???? As you all know we use safe, proven homeopathic remedies to cure the underlying cause and also apply the same principled, lawful science to prevent Mumps on the basis of Homoprophylaxis. We can do this safely and effectively with any childhood illness you would like to prevent in your child.
Dear OPH colleague;
Mumps is Back! As you may be aware, the incidence of mumps has been increasing recently throughout Canada, primarily among postsecondary students. There have been outbreaks of mumps in four other provinces, and infections are on the rise in Ontario. In response, The Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care has implemented a one-time Mumps Catch-Up Vaccination Program by offering free mumps-containing vaccine, called MMR (measles/mumps/rubella), through local Public Health Units.
Four out of five people born in Ontario between 1970 and 1995 have received only one dose of the MMR vaccine, which may not provide them with enough protection against the mumps virus. After a new recommendation in 1996, most children in Ontario received two doses of the MMR vaccine before entering elementary school. To be fully protected from contracting mumps, two doses are required. Ottawa Public Health is encouraging all young adults born between 1970 and 1995 to review their immunization records, and receive a second dose of the MMR vaccine if this has not already occurred. Clinics will be hosted at all postsecondary institutions in Ottawa, and in various community settings, from January to March 2009.
Mumps is a highly contagious viral illness that can have serious and permanent complications. Fortunately, mumps is preventable through immunization, so advertising our clinics as much as possible is very important.The Community Immunization Clinics Program would greatly appreciate your assistance with getting this information out into our community by sharing it with your community partners, friends and families. For more information, and a list of community and campus clinics, visit ottawa.ca/health or ontario.ca/mumps
Together, we can prevent an outbreak of mumps in the City of Ottawa.
Thanks in advance for your assistance.
