No VACCINE until persistent infection is acknowledged and fully addressed PERIOD!!!

OCT 17, 2019 — 

Today’s letter is a follow-up to my previous email sent to Cassandra Willyard who has written articles on Lyme disease vaccines. That letter with references to persistent infection (chronic Lyme) can be found in the following petition update:

I recommend that you read that petition update first to understand what prompted the letter below.

Subject: No VACCINE until persistent infection is acknowledged and fully addressed PERIOD!!!
To the Tick-Borne Disease Working Group,

As a follow-up to yesterday’s email on the subject of “Lyme disease vaccines” (which has been posted to the Petition Site  with 83,225 signatures), patients who have the persistent form of the infection have been left to fend for themselves. Aside from turning a blind eye to the devastation there has been no government solution to the growing number of horribly disabled patients as exposed in the Under our Skindocumentary:
Under Our Skin – Extended Trailer

It has been said time and time again that almost everyone knows someone whose life has been ruined as a result of Lyme disease.

Quote from Benjamin Franklin:

“Justice will not be served until those who are unaffected are as outraged as those who are.”

So where is the public outrage? Before you label me as an “anti-vaxxer” let me ask the following question to those who have not been affected:

Why have you seen the devastation and kept silent?

Do you think this couldn’t happen to you or a loved one? Well think again because the odds are stacked against you as the current testing is no better than a coin toss, treatment is inadequate, medical training is deplorable and there is absolutely no disease control whatsoever.

A vaccine if it ever does come to market isn’t going to save the hundreds of thousands if not millions worldwide who are suffering from a disease that has destroyed lives, ended careers while leaving its victim in financial ruin. If Lyme disease is “Hard to Catch And Easy to Halt” as published in the 2001 New York Times article [1] why do we need a vaccine? All the evidence is pointing to vaccine development as the root cause of the mishandling of the disease. Patient testimony all across America (and the globe) is describing a life-altering/life threatening infection which has been misclassified as a simple nuisance disease by the defendants named in the Racketeering Lawsuit [2] and endorsed by the US Centers for Disease Control.

We need a CURE NOW and a vaccine is useless for the lives left in limbo desperate to recover their health.

Enough with the damn vaccine; acknowledge persistent infection and develop a cure for this antibiotic resistant/tolerant superbug and do this on a federal level with unlimited funds NOT on a shoestring as others are attempting to do privately. [3]

This protest and yesterday’s email will be forwarded to the 87 organizations, 11 countries also rejecting the IDSA’s proposed Lyme disease treatment guidelines; A worldwide rejection of a vaccine that does not help the horribly disabled.

No VACCINE until persistent infection is acknowledged and fully addressed PERIOD!!!
