It saddens me to see how many Australians have fallen for what is an absolute commercial play.
I am pro-data on vaccines, not pro-vaccine, not anti-vaccine. I worked in the business of medical science and science for 15 years.
There are reasons for the right vaccines for the right disease.
There are also appalling vaccines like HPV that should never have come to market, and which as I have shared before I know HPV disease experts who won’t have that vaccine administered to their kids.
The Vaccine Adverse Effects Reporting Agency exists for a reason. Anything injected in the body will have side effects and some people do die.
I have no interest in engaging in endless debates with pro-vax people or anti-vax people. Life is never just black or just white. If you have been wound up into a black or white position you are ignoring some of the data, and supporting one or other vested interest.
Which brings me to ‘NoJabNoPlayNoPay’.
The NoJabNoPlay campaign was initiated by the Murdoch Daily Telegraph. Yes, a newspaper that is supposed to report news, not initiate a campaign.
James Murdoch was a Director of Glaxo Smith Kline one of the largest vaccine manufacturers in the world. He decided not to stand for reelection in 2012 is the official story, but the vaccine media strategy was already born, now it served GSK better if Murdoch was not tied to them: Plausible Deniability they call it in the game.
One could wonder why a drug and vaccine company needed the skills of a media expert on its board. But one doesn’t need to wonder too long.
The Murdochs were successful in having NSW Law passed on the supposed public support manufactured by the Murdoch Press for NoJabNoPlay.
Now Abbott has handed his masters NoJabNoPay and GSK and their cohorts will be slapping themselves on the back in the board room.
Australia, you have been played.
I am all for management of epidemiology, I am also very much for proper peer reviewed science and rigour in searching for side effects and creating better vaccines. Side effects are real as you can see on any drugs legal disclaimers inside the box in small print.
Science is funded by business in 95% of cases today folks, and so too is media and PR.
Join me in the middle ground and look for the truth not one side or the others propaganda.
