Herd Immunity True & False
“'Individuals vaccinated with live virus vaccines such as MMR (measles, mumps and rubella), rotavirus, chicken pox, shingles and influenza can shed the virus for many weeks or months [after their shots].'
Which means that unless newly vaccinated people quarantine themselves and their children after the vaccinations, they are putting others at risk of infection."

February 12, 2021 - Using Herd Immunity Myth to Justify COVID Vaccines for Kids Is Deceptive and Dangerous -
By: Children's Health Defense Team -
COVID poses almost no risk to children. Yet the push is on to mandate COVID vaccines for all children, with little or no consideration for the health risks of the experimental vaccines.
U.S. health officials are signaling their intent to rapidly green-light the as-yet unlicensed mRNA vaccines for children.
During the first six weeks of the coronavirus vaccine rollout among U.S. adults, the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) — notorious for collecting only a tiny fraction of adverse events — received reports of more than 500 post-vaccination deaths and close to 11,000 other injuries.
Internationally renowned molecular genetics expert Dolores Cahill believes that these injuries portend a forthcoming tsunami of crippling and fatal problems. In the coming months, Cahill expects to see successive waves of adverse reactions to the experimental messenger RNA (mRNA) injections ranging from anaphylaxis and other allergic responses to autoimmunity, sepsis and organ failure.
Notwithstanding these and other credible warnings, U.S. health officials are signaling their intent to rapidly green-light the as-yet unlicensed mRNA vaccines for children.
Already last April — when next to nothing was known about COVID’s epidemiology, and candidate vaccines had barely begun to be studied — Bill Gates set the stage for the pediatric push, declaring that the end goal is to make COVID-19 vaccines “part of the routine newborn immunization schedule.”
We have since learned that 99.997% of young people ages 0-19 survive COVID-19 (with most experiencing either mild symptoms or no symptoms at all). But that does not seem to matter. Nor does a January 2021 study, which confirmed that it is only in a minuscule subset of children — mostly kids with serious underlying medical conditions — that the illness occasionally takes a turn for the worse.
In this low-risk context, public health officials know that they need to come up with different arguments to persuade parents to give the coronavirus vaccines to their offspring. Fortunately for these vaccine functionaries, there is a concept that is readily at hand: herd immunity.
And as Moderna joins Pfizer in conducting vaccine experiments on 12- to 17-year-olds — with additional trials in the works to test the injections in children under-12, including infants as young as six months — the chorus of voices casting herd immunity as “the main driver for COVID-19 child vaccinations” is growing noticeably louder.
A flawed ‘marketing gimmick’ -
Several years ago, JB Handley, author of “How to End the Autism Epidemic,” dissected herd immunity’s use as a “marketing gimmick” to shame and pressure people into vaccination, based on the guilt-tripping claim that non-compliers are free-riders who “put the health of the ‘herd’ at risk.”
Immunologist Tetyana Obukhanych, Ph.D., and others concur that officials enjoy wielding herd immunity “as a trump card to justify any measures, often at odds with personal freedom of choice, aiming to increase vaccination compliance.”
There’s just one problem with vaccine herd immunity claims, says Handley: “[W]e’ve never come close to achieving ‘herd immunity’ through vaccination, and we never will.”
Having conducted extensive research on the history of vaccine policies (such as mandated vaccines for school attendance), Children’s Health Defense (CHD) President and General Counsel Mary Holland agrees, stating that decades of intensive effort “have not attained herd immunity for any childhood disease.”
The theory of herd immunity originated with a health officer working in Chicago in the 1930s. At its inception, the concept “had nothing to do with vaccination.” Instead the theory reflected the physician’s careful observations “about the process of how a disease works its way through a community and how that community, eventually, naturally builds up a resistance to it as a result.”
As Obukhanych also explains, herd immunity evolved as an epidemiologic rather than an immunologic construct, offering at best a theoretical opportunity to predict successful disease control. As vaccines (and vaccine mandates) became more widespread in the mid-20th century, herd immunity theory underwent a pivotal transformation, based on the “faulty assumption that vaccination elicits in an individual a state equivalent to bona fide immunity,” Obukhanych said. Overlooking the sophistication of the human immune system — the very model of versatility — vaccine scientists adopted the flawed assumption of equivalence and, despite decades of evidence to the contrary, now view vaccination as a superior — even ideal — route to herd immunity.
The World Health Organization goes even further, omitting any reference to natural infection and defining herd immunity solely as “a concept used for vaccination.” Ironically, even as medical facilities report “an uptick in the recording of [COVID-19 vaccine] side effects” — not to mention disruptive “health impact events” — the Mayo Clinic asserts that vaccination “create[s] immunity without causing illness or resulting complications.”*

"... Many pediatricians think herd immunity results when a large group of people have been vaccinated. Dr. Tim O’Shea corrects a common misconception, 'True herd immunity is a term
which indicates that a disease has burned itself out within a population, as with plague, smallpox, typhus [and] every infectious disease in history. The herd has become immune. Natural selection. It has to do with nature, not with manmade vaccines.' Now you know; don’t be fooled again. http://gianelloni.wordpress.com/2013/09/13/the-myth-of-herd-immunity/
Dr. Russell Blaylock (board certified neurosurgeon) clarifies, 'In the original description of herd immunity, the protection to the population at large occurred only if people contracted the
infections naturally. The reason is that naturally acquired immunity lasts for a lifetime.'
Vaccine proponents borrowed the concept and applied it to vaccine-induced immunity. The only problem— recent analysis found that most vaccines lost their effectiveness 2 to 10 years after being given. http://www.theepochtimes.com/n2/health/forced-vaccinations-government-and-the-public-interest-2-27045.html
Dr. Blaylock continues, 'This is why they quietly began to suggest boosters for most vaccines, even the common childhood infections such as chickenpox, measles, mumps, and rubella.
'Then they discovered an even greater problem: The boosters were lasting for only two years or less. This is why we are now seeing mandates that youth entering colleges get multiple
vaccines, even those that they insisted gave lifelong immunity, such as the MMR. The same is being suggested for full-grown adults. Ironically, no one in the media or medical field is asking
what is going on. They just accept that it must be done.'”

The following is a first draft of a letter for the UC regents:
Greetings University of California Regents!
I’ve recently learned that the UC system has begun to require vaccinations of all UC students or be denied their right to attend classes. The policy is contrary to the California Constitution (as per ARTICLE I) as well as the Organic Laws of the United States of America..
DECLARATION OF RIGHTS.
Section 1. All men are by nature free and independent, and have certain inalienable rights, among which are those of enjoying and defending life and liberty; acquiring, possessing, and protecting property; and pursuing and obtaining safety and happiness. [Constitution of 1849, Art. I, § 1]
The “Rights” referred to in this Constitution are virtualy of the same origin as those declared in the first Organic Law: The Declaration of Independence[i] and therefore should be identified by the phrase "unalienable Rights" - just as it is written in this later document of July 4th, 1776. The two terms: "unalienable" and "inalienable" have distinctively different meanings.[ii]
As Alfred Adask shows in his article: "... the text of the 'Declaration of Independence' expressly refers to our 'unalienable Rights'."
This means the Rights of “all men” (every student in this instance) include a non-negotiable Right to self-determine one’s own health, their individual and natural immunity as well as their total well-being - without any coerician to have injections of so called vaccinations in the name of “herd immunity” or for any reason whatsoever.
Purpose of government.
Sec. 2. All political power is inherent in the people. Government is instituted for the protection, security, and benefit of the people, . [Constitution of 1849, Art. I, §2]
The legal basis for the UC system originates in the California Constitution. Therefore the UC Regents are limited by this Constitution as well as by the “Organic Laws” to writing policy congruent with the purpose of government that includes protecting the students. Contrary to conventional beliefs vaccinations do not protect the health of individuals. “Individuals vaccinated with live virus vaccines such as MMR (measles, mumps and rubella), rotavirus, chicken pox, shingles and influenza can shed the virus for many weeks or months [after their shots].’[iii][iv][v][vi][vii][viii][ix][x]xi][xii] Which means that unless newly vaccinated people quarantine themselves and their children after the vaccinations, they are putting others at risk of infection.
Immunity is an organic part of life. If the Regents wish to protect University students (a most worthy objective whether they are legally bound to this or not) I most highly recommend gaining new understanding on what factors a student can include in their life that will build up their natural immunity. If the Regents are so inclined it would be my joy to gather a presentation on the nutrition factor as most probably the leading factor for natural immunity!
Thank you for considering this comment.
Cordially and sincerely,
@ San Diego, California
[i] The Declaration of Independence as the first of four Organic Laws is the cornerstone of American Law and therefore the original “supreme Law” of the United States of America. Without this “cornerstone” we do not have American Law or an American Nation. The Constitution of September 17, 1787 is the fourth Organic Law. Referring to this Constitution as if it were the only foundation for America is truly problematic because it's true standing can only be understood within the context of the preceding three Organic Laws. If the "Constitution" is "divorced" from the Declaration of Independence then we are without our "North Star" as our guiding light. We must "hold these truths to be self evident" or become subject to whatever the prevailing political winds of the day may be. We must know that "Life" includes our individual health and total well-being that is our natural unalienable Right meaning that it can not be given away or compromised by anything including an institution's "requirement" (under color of institutional policy) and/or in the name of public health. There is no public health without healthy individuals - the only place where health begins!
(8-10-16) Furthermore "Without this “cornerstone” - “The Founding Fathers pled for each generation of Americans to respect and guard limits on federal power. … The transformation of our government from a limited federal republic into an unlimited bureaucratic oligarchy has occurred largely without public remark despite the fact that it has resulted in a titanic shift in sovereignty - away from the individual and to the state. With that shift has come another consequence, one that sacrifices the very essence of what it means to be an American.”[xii]

Virtually every individual can raise their immune systems efficiency. It’s been proven that "You Can Influence Your Immune System at Will"!
I've personally proven this to myself over the past three decades. My highest recommendation is the use of saunas and/or hot baths (and the like) to cause the body to sweat along with the use of cold showers and/or cold plunges. As long as I practice this I never get sick! I would never think in terms of getting a "flu shot" or the like.

Just discovered Dr. Wilson's site and read a most excellent article on the use of "heat lamps" I had just heard about Dr. Wilson last night in an interview with Brian Richards who founded SaunaSpace. I am convinced that the combination of both the heat and the light from these "heat lamps" have a great synergistic effect on the body and is a superior way to go over just the heat applications of a conventional dry or steam sauna or the hot baths I've advocated (although I don't intent to give those up now). I'm intending to get a lamp!
Conditions for which the heat lamps have been used for include: joint pain, muscle strains, skin rashes, acne, boils and some conditions of the eyes, nose, ears and sinuses. Neck, shoulder, elbow, knee and back pain may also respond. Bladder and vaginal conditions".

Does the push for mass vaccination point toward a staged bioterror event?
by Jon Rappoport - December 4, 2017
 There was a program in the 80's I participated in called RISE: Raise Immune System Efficiency. I participated with not only my own personal interest but also for my work as a Home Heath Aid at that time. I also got one of the first books published on Psychoneuroimmunology and it appeared after which a whole entire field opened up that was devoted to this.
