The measles psyOp propaganda assault continues.
The measles vaccine story sounds quite fantastic – and unbelievable. Magic numbers, accidental discoveries … a familiar template.
It was only blood.
But more than 60 years ago, that blood from an 11-year-old boy was used to stop one of the deadliest childhood illnesses — measles.
Not long after recovering from the illness, Edmonston remembers getting pulled out of study hall by Peebles, who told him the good news — they were able to isolate the virus strain, and would be making a vaccine from his blood. After undergoing many years of human trials, the vaccine was finally released to the public in 1963 — nine years after his blood was first taken.
This is possibly the only true part of the likely fable:
When the time came to vaccinate his own son in the 1970s, Edmonston and his wife decided not to because they were concerned about possible reactions to vaccines.
“She was dead set against (the vaccination) and I was a bit disappointed. But you see we had an agreement that child rearing was largely in her hands, so I went along,” he said.
Now, Edmonston attributes high rates of vaccination to the fact that his son, now 34, never got measles.
“Our own child did not benefit from the measles vaccine in which I had a small part. We knew that we were benefiting from a risk that was being taken by others,” he told the Star in an email.
