In 21 cities throughout Italy, tens of thousands of parents have rallied in the streets to protest the new mandatory vaccination laws. The laws were pushed through with great speed, despite the fact that the Istituto Superiore Di Sanità (similar to CDC) found that there was no emergency, no epidemics and the rate of measles was lower than in 2016. A decree-law from the Minister of Health was signed by the Italian president Sergio Mattarella. 1,2
Why would the government push through a very unpopular law when no clear medical reason for it existed? This is especially puzzling since Italy has had its share of vaccine injuries and deaths. In 2014, thirteen people died after receiving a flu shot. There were so many other serious cases that Italy instituted a vaccine injury compensation program. So, why force this law on the people?
Here one might consider the old expression, “follow the money.” One year ago, the drug giant GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) announced that it was investing a billion dollars in vaccine production in Italy.3 No one has proved that money changed hands, but it could raise eyebrows, since Italy has a history of corruption around vaccines. In 1991, Minister of Health Francesco De Lorenzo made the Hepatitis B vaccine mandatory. The Italian Supreme court subsequently found him and his Health Ministry counterpart, Duilio Poggiolini, guilty of corruption and bribery for taking € 600 million from GlaxoSmithKline.
By the way, don’t look to the WHO for advice on vaccine safety. According to its new method of classifying “adverse events following immunization”, once a vaccine is licensed, any deaths that occur will be labeled “coincidental” or “unclassifiable” and not counted as a vaccine death. 4,5 In India, after 52 children died following vaccination, not even one case was classified as vaccine related. 5 Who is the WHO taking its marching orders from?
With huge profits to be made from vaccines, we can expect mandatory vaccine laws in other countries as well. Aside from marching in the streets, another way to counter this is to expose the individuals taking money from Pharma. You shouldn’t have to look further than the person who introduces the vaccine legislation (or the one who reclassifies vaccine deaths).
Finally, for a safe, effective alternative to vaccines, let people know about homeoprophylaxis (HP).6
