In Ireland, apparently, a story only qualifies as a ‘Vaccine Scandal’ if it relates to a ‘trial’ vaccine, preferably from 40-50 years ago, and the words ‘vaccine’ and ‘injury’ are not associated in any way.
Last weekend saw saturation coverage on a ‘Child Vaccine Scandal’ from the early 1960’s involving vaccine trials carried out without parental consent in Irish church-run children’s homes.
The articles were triggered by the revelation that a number of victims, who now live in the US, are preparing a class action suit in the US courts (against the Pharma company responsible for the drug trials) because repeated attempts to seek justice in Ireland have failed.
Such headlines might seem to signify a new willingness on the part of the Irish Media to investigate stories of vaccine damaged Irish children, but in reality these articles are framed in terms of a religious-order-child-abuse context and do not involve proven cases of vaccine injury. The Irish Times qualifies it’s reporting on this latest scandal, stating “It is understood that none of the children who were given the experimental vaccine were damaged by it”.
The main Irish media organs are notoriously averse to reporting on the unsavory history of catastrophic injury and death from mass vaccination in Ireland . Apparently, based on this latest example, a story only qualifies as a ‘Vaccine Scandal’ if it relates to a ‘trial’ vaccine, preferably from 40-50 years ago, and the words ‘vaccine’ and ‘injury’ are not associated in any way.
Thus, there have been no media-declared vaccine scandals in recent memory (in spite of the recent Irish swine flu mass vaccination program using a vaccine laced with Squalene & Mercury ).
‘Top 3’ Print Media’s Coverage of Vaccine Damage in Ireland
On 17 Nov 2009 the Department of Health published a report from a Vaccine Damage Steering Group regarding retrospective payments for children who suffer severe damage as a result of a vaccine adverse reaction.
The news of the Steering Group’s publication was ignored by The Independent and The Herald .
The Irish Times did report on it , although confined largely to the payment conditions surrounding the proposed no-fault scheme, and with no reference to the state’s indecent history of disassociation from children who were severely injured by vaccination programs actively promoted by the state.
Rather than revealing the true numbers of severely injured children involved, the article associates the vaccine damage issue as relating to a mere handful of cases:
“There are three cases alleging vaccine damage with the State Claims Agency and two with the Irish Public Bodies insurance company”.
Incredibly, in a Kafkaesque final paragraph, the only compensation claim example cited by the article relates to proposing payment to those who failed to receive a vaccination :
“One submission to the steering group from the faculty of paediatrics at the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland said the group might need to consider compensation for children who contracted TB in Cork in 2007 when immunisations were not offered by the HSE“.
No references are made to any vaccine scandal which directly relates to the subject of the report – such as the severe brain damage suffered by infants from the 3-in-1 DPT whooping cough vaccine of the 1960s and 1970s. Instead we get misdirection and “Doublespeak” (“two contradictory concepts juxtaposed against each other to create deep confusion in the hearer for the purpose of producing inaction and apathy” – from the novel ‘1984’).
