Smallpox outbreak: What to doThanks to Dr. Sherri Tenpenny for the following.
Now that they are going to start vaccinating 500,000 first responders, we are on the slippery slope to mass vaccination of us all. Here is information NOT seen in the press. Please pass on!!

Smallpox outbreak: What to doby Sherri Tenpenny, DO
July 7, 2002
"We interrupt the current programming to bring you this important news update"there has been a reported case of smallpox in Washington, D.C"...
What will happen next? Pandemonium. The press has done its job over the last few months reinforcing the belief that an epidemic is about to occur, potentially causing millions of deaths. Americans thousands of miles from Washington will demand the smallpox vaccine, a vaccine with the highest risk of complications of any vaccine ever manufactured and with a dubious track record for success.
However, because you are informed, you will have a different response. You will not panic. You will turn off the TV. You won't listen to your hysterical neighbors. And more importantly, you won't rush to be vaccinated. Here's why:
On June 20, 2002, I attended the Center for Disease Control's (CDC) meeting of the Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices (ACIP) and listened to one and a half days of testimony prior to posting the recommendations for smallpox vaccination that are currently being considered by the CDC and the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS.) Many testimonies and comments were presented by public participants and by various physicians and researchers associated with the CDC. Noting that two weeks have passed since the June 20th meeting and the media has still not reported on this historic event, I decided it was imperative to report the content and outcome of this meeting to the general public. After reading this report you will gain a new perspective on smallpox and, hopefully, in the event of an outbreak, you will understand that you have nothing to fear.
Generally accepted facts
Nearly every article or news headliner regarding smallpox is designed to instill and continually reinforce fear in the minds of the general public. Apparently the goal is to make everyone demand the vaccine as soon as it is available and/or in the event of an outbreak. A very similar media campaign was developed prior to the release of the Salk polio vaccine in 1955. The polio vaccine had been in development for more than a year prior to its release and was an untested "investigational new drug,... just as the smallpox vaccine will be. The difference is that the potential side effects and complications of the smallpox vaccine are already known, and they are extensive.
Generally accepted facts about smallpox include:
As it turns out, these "accepted facts... are not the "real facts....
"Smallpox has a slow transmission and is not highly contagious,... stated Joel Kuritsky, MD, director of the National Immunization Program and Early Smallpox Response and Planning at the CDC. This statement is a direct contradiction to nearly everything we have ever heard or read about smallpox. However, keep in mind that this comes "straight from the horse's mouth... and should be considered the "real story... regarding how smallpox is spread.
Even if a person is exposed to a known bioterrorist attack with smallpox, it doesn't mean that he will contract smallpox. The signs and symptoms of the disease will not occur immediately, and there is time to plan. The infection has an incubation period of 3 to 17 days, and the first symptom will be the development of a high fever (>101° F), accompanied by nausea, vomiting, headache, severe abdominal cramping and low back pain. The person will be ill and most likely bed-ridden; not out mixing with the general public.
Even with a fever, it is critically important to realize that at this point the person is still not contagious. In fact, the fever may be caused by something else, such as the flu.
However, if a smallpox infection is developing, the characteristic rash will begin to develop within two to four days after the onset of the fever. The person becomes contagious and has the ability to spread the infection only after the development of the rash. "The characteristic rash of variola major is difficult to misdiagnose,... stated Walter A. Orenstein, M.D., Director of the National Immunization Program (NIP) at the CDC. The classic smallpox rash is a round, firm pustule that can spread and become confluent. The lesions are all in the same stage of development over the entire body and appear to be distributed more on the palms, soles and face than on the trunk or extremities.
Myth 2: Smallpox is easily spread by casual contact with an infected person
Smallpox will not rapidly disseminate throughout the community. Even after the development of the rash, the infection is slow to spread. "The infection is spread by droplet contamination and coughing or sneezing are not generally part of the infection. Smallpox will not spread like wildfire,... said Orenstein. He stated that the spread of smallpox to casual contacts is the "exception to the rule. ... Only 8% of cases in Africa were contracted by accidental contact.
Transmission of smallpox occurs only after intense contact, defined as "constant exposure of a person that is within 6-7 feet for a minimum of 6-7 days.... Dr. Orenstein reported that in Africa, 92% of all cases came from close associations and in India, all cases came from prolonged personal contact. Dr. Tom Mack from the University of Southern California stated that in Pakistan, 27% of cases demonstrated no transmission to close associates. Nearly 37% had a transmission of only one generation, meaning that the second person to contract smallpox did not pass it onto the third person. These statistics directly contradict models that predict an exponential spread to millions.
Even without medical care, isolation was the best way to stop the spread of smallpox in Third World, population dense areas. With a slow transmission rate and an informed public, Mack estimated that the total number of smallpox cases in America would be less than 10, a far cry from the millions postulated by the press.
Dr. Kuritsky said at the CDC Public Forum on Smallpox on June 8 in St. Louis, "Given the slow transmission rate and that people need to be in close contact for nearly a week to spread the infection, the scenario in which a terrorist could infect himself with smallpox and contaminate an entire city by walking through the streets touching people is purely fiction....
Nearly every newspaper and journal article quotes this statistic. However, as pointed out in the presentation by Dr. Tom Mack, it appears that the "30% fatality rate... has come from skewed data. Dr. Mack has worked with smallpox extensively and saw more than 120 outbreaks in Pakistan throughout the early 1970s. Villages would apparently have "an importation... every 5-10 years, regardless of vaccination status, and the outbreak could always be predicated by living conditions and social arrangements. There were many small outbreaks and individual cases that never came to the attention of the local authorities.
Mack stated that even with poor medical care, the case fatality rate in adults was "much lower than is generally advertised... and thought to be 10-15%. He said that the statistics were "loaded with children that had a much higher fatality,... making the average death rate reported to be much higher. Amazingly, he revealed his opinion that even without mass vaccination, "smallpox would have died out anyway. It just would have taken longer....
Even so, people died. Why? After all, smallpox is a skin disease and "other organs are seldom involved.... I posed this question to the committee on two separate occasions. Kathi Williams of the National Vaccine Information Center asked this question at the Institute of Medicine meeting on June 15th. On June 20, an answer was finally forthcoming when a member of the ACIP committee said, "That is a good question. Does anyone know the actual cause of death from smallpox?...
At that point, Dr. D.A. Henderson, from the John Hopkins University Department of Epidemiology volunteered a comment. Dr. Henderson directed the World Health Organization's global smallpox eradication campaign (1966-1977) and helped initiate WHO's global program of immunization in 1974. He approached the microphone and stated, "Well, it appears that the cause of death of smallpox is a 'mystery.'... He stated that a medical resident had been asked to do a complete review of the literature and "not much information... was found. It is postulated that the people died from a "generalized toxemia... and that those with the most severe forms of smallpox the hemorrhagic or confluent malignant types died of complications of skin sloughing, similar to a burn. However, he concluded by saying, "it's frustrating, because we don't really know....
A more accurate statement is "there are no pharmaceutical drugs for the treatment for smallpox.... But they are working on that too. There are 274 antiviral drug compounds and testing is underway to see if one can be useful in the treatment of smallpox. One such drug is called hexadecylosypropyl-cidofovir (HDP-CDV). Not yet available for human use, it has been found to be 100 times more potent than its cousin, cidofovir, a drug used to treat retinal infections in HIV patients. If studies pan out, HDP-CDV will be offered in a pill or capsule form over 5-14 days for the prevention and treatment of people exposed to smallpox. Unfortunately, this drug is being developed in Europe and will most likely be kept out of the US market until long after the general public has been subjected to mass vaccination.
It is important to note that there are several different presentations of a smallpox infection. The most common is called "ordinary discrete... smallpox, occurring in more than 40% of the cases. The outbreak is seen as a small scattering of pustules distributed across the body. The person with this type of smallpox needs minimal medical care and the reported death rate is <10%.
For mild cases of smallpox, adequate hydration and anti-fever products are essential for comfort and maintaining a temperature below 102°F. Keeping the skin clean to prevent secondary bacterial infections is also important. A 1927 Textbook of Medicine recommends applying gauze soaked in carbolic acid to decrease itching and prevent extensive scarring.... Carbolic acid is used acutely for burns that tend to ulcerate and other skin conditions that cause burning or prickling pain. Homeopathic forms of carbolic acid are also available.
For the severe complications of smallpox, modern day treatment options are available. The hemorrhagic type of smallpox, occurring in approximately 3% of cases, presents as hypotensive shock and can be treated accordingly. In another 3% of serious cases, the confluent-type has extensive skin involvement. These patients can be treated the same as a burn patient. All severe cases need to be treated for dehydration and watched for signs of bacterial suprainfection.
Research done by Dr. Peter Havens, MS, MD from the Medical College of Wisconsin postulated that death from smallpox was due to multi-system organ failure, a complication of an untreated acute cytokine (inflammatory) response. Massive oxidative stress occurs, leading to free-radical damage in the kidneys and other internal organs. However, Dr. Havens estimates that modern medical technology would indeed decrease the death rate, to possibly as low as 2-3%.
Side bar with Dr. Mike Lane:
Dr. Lane and I had a private conversation during a coffee break. During his presentation, he had been adamant that those within the "first ring... would need to be mandatorily vaccinated with 100% compliance. The "first ring... includes those that have had immediate, close contact with patients who had confirmed cases of smallpox. Lane stated that this was the only way that "ring vaccination would work.... When I questioned his definition of 100% compliance, he said, "Medical contraindications would not apply" there would be NO exceptions. I would rather vaccinate them and take my chances treating the potential complications. In India, we vaccinated everyone. The only medical contraindication was leprosy, and we sometimes vaccinated them. I'm sure that we killed a few people, but we did the best that we could....
I pressed the issue further by saying, "if the death rate really is 30% (which I doubt), doesn't that mean the survival rate is 70%? Shouldn't that person have the right to play the odds with his health if he chose to?... His answer was the same: "If the person is exposed, there will be NO exceptions, medical or otherwise. Those people in the first ring regardless of health status MUST be vaccinated....
That means that all people with medical contraindictions organ transplants, cancer, HIV, eczema and other skin conditions would be vaccinated, even it was against their will and with the use of force, if necessary. He was quite the zealot about it; hopefully, in the event of a smallpox exposure, more reasonable minds will prevail.
Myth #5: The vaccine will keep me from getting the infection
Most people believe that all vaccines work to protect them, meaning that the vaccine will be clinically effective. What most people do not know is that vaccines have never been proven to protect them from getting the infection.
This little known fact is not only true for all vaccines, it is also true for the smallpox vaccine. Here are a few examples:
"Vaccinated persons have a less severe out break than unvaccinated...
(300 vs. 50 lesions.)
TAKE HOME POINTS:
As I was completing this report this morning, I read in the New York Times that the CDC plans to increase the number of "first responders... who receive the vaccination to 500,000 from the agreed-to 15,000. Preparations are also underway for rapid mass vaccination of the general public. The more extensive vaccination plan is possible because supplies are increasing. As I have stated before, the government spent more than $780 million to develop its arsenal. Now that we have it, we will use it.
In addition to medical first responders, a presentation at the June 20th meeting suggested that first responders should also include a class to be defined as "economic first responders,... those who would be necessary in keeping the economy moving in the event of a nationwide "lock down... caused by an outbreak. This group would include pilots, truck drivers, food handlers, etc. It is the "etc.... that is of concern. Where do you draw the line? Obviously, the line will be drawn after Tommy Thompson's vision of a "vaccine for every man, woman and child... has been fulfilled.
One of the major problems is the lack of vaccinia immune globulin (VIG), the "antidote... that is needed for those who experience a severe reaction to the vaccine. The Times article reports that there are only 700 doses currently available. Dr. Tom Mack, among others at the CDC warned that, "in the absence of VIG, extensive vaccination would be extremely dangerous....
With the continued rhetoric about the US plans to go to war with Iraq, we are essentially taunting Saddam into launching a biological weapons attack on our own people. We are not given an exact knowledge as to Saddam's capability but are given euphemisms such as "reasonably high ... or "quite high.... But we don't know for sure. And if the government knows, it is not telling. And if Saddam does have biological smallpox, what is the chance he has other weapons of biological destruction, those for which we do not have a vaccine?
We are developing "grounds... for a war with Iraq in spite of the rest of the world telling us to stay out of there. I encourage all to spend some time on this site: www.globalpolicy.org for some eye-opening information on policy that you won't see in the popular press.
We are setting the stage for a health disaster unlike anything we have seen before in America, and it will be our own doing. World health records (England, Germany, Italy, the Philippines, British India, etc.) document that devastating epidemics followed mass vaccination. The worst smallpox disaster occurred in the Philippines after a 10 year compulsory US program administered 25 million vaccinations to its population of 10 million resulting in 170,000 cases and more than 75,000 deaths from 'smallpox', in a country having only scattered cases in rural villages prior to the onslaught of vaccines.
I received an excellent bulletin from Larken Rose ( www.Theft-By-Deception.com) who is an activist regarding taxes. So much of what he said applies to the vaccine movement, that I got his permission to include part of his letter here. It is time to STAND AGAINST forced vaccination. Stop the hysteria! Information is power. However, after gaining power, you must ACT.
Here is something to inspire you:
