THE UNDYING MYTHOLOGY OF TETANUS – Excerpt from Vaccination Is Not Immunization 2013.
Excerpt from Vaccination Is Not Immunization 2017, p. 89:
“DPT or DTaP?
By 1996, so many adverse reactions were being pinned on the Pertussis component that the marketing department realized it was time for a new and improved version. Enter the acellular pertussis vaccine.
Hawked as the safer pertussis vaccine because it contained no whole bacterial cells, the acellular vaccine contains enough byproducts of the bacteria so that it is supposedly still able to trigger the magical antibody response without causing all those nasty deaths and side effects we got from the old-fashioned DPT. Was any new long-term testing done in combination with DT before the vaccine was released?
There was none.
Don’t be taken in by the cell/acellular shell game. In terms of overall toxicity to a newborn infant’s blood, the distinction is not worth making. The vaccine is still #1 for vaccine injury cases.
Ever wonder what happened to all those millions of doses of DPT stockpiled in storage when DTaP came out? Answer: nothing. Even though the dangers of DPT supposedly necessitated the development of the new DTaP, doctors are still entitled to use the old mercury-laced DPT vaccine all they want, because it’s still a licensed product.
Or the surplus may just be dumped in Third World markets.”
SUMMARY: If you opt for tetanus vaccine, which one are you getting? Have you read the Package Insert for risk of injury? Avoid DPT!
