Did MenAfriVac Paralyze 40 Children in Gouro, Chad?

Posted Jan 01 2013 12:00am
Chad There are reports ( The Nigerian Voice ) that 40 children have been paralyzed in Guro, Chad in Northern Africa following vaccination with a meninigitis vaccine funded by The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation called MenAfriVac.   About MenAfriVac from the Bill Gates's newsletter article titled:  The MenAfriVac An Amazing Success Story in Global Health
In 2001, our foundation funded a 10-year partnership between the World Health Organization and Seattle-based  PATH to develop an affordable, new vaccine that experts hoped would last longer and do a better job of interrupting transmission of the disease. Over the next decade, a remarkable collaboration grew to include many private sector and public sector partners.

In December 2010, the new MenAfriVac vaccine was introduced in three countries: Burkina Faso, Mali, and Niger. Mothers queued up early with their children, fearful that health workers would run out of the vaccine. They need not have worried. In four weeks, a remarkable 20 million people were vaccinated.

No mother wants to watch her child succumb to disease.  Likewise,  no mother wants to put her trust into medicine only to see a tragic result as bad or worse than the disease she was hoping to prevent.  The seal of The United States reads, "E Pluribus Unum." This translates to "Out of the many, one." Because the individual matters in America. We are not data points, statistics, or... a herd.  Read additional reports and background on the paralysis at  Were 40 Children Paralyzed by MenAfriVac in Gouro, Chad?  at SaneVax and at Video Footage Shows Prime Minister Visits Paralyzed Children, Powerful Groups Involved in Vaccine Campaign at VacTruth.
