Meryl Dorey
s difficulty with the truth about Pertussis vaccineefficacy, Denmark and The Netherlands
“One day AVN... Pow! Straight to the Moon!” 
“Contrary to the assertions of Mr McLeod, the current increase in the incidence ofpertussis has nothing to do with any purported decline in the rate of vaccination.Instead, we are seeing an outbreak of pertussis despite a substantial increase invaccination against it – an experience which is being duplicated in every country forwhich mass vaccination against this illness exists.

Vaccine; Emerging Infectious Diseases, Vol. 3, No. 2,April-June 1997

s aim here seems to be to confuse “outbreaks” with increasing vaccinationrates. As vaccination has proved successful whole-cell pertussis vaccines havebeen replaced with acellular vaccines in a number of countries. That
- nocells. The AVN tend to describe vaccines such that one may think they werescraped off the floor before we could muster a clean up in aisle 6, or dripped out ofthe bottom of your KFC bag. Aborted fetal cells, monkey kidney cells, “immortal”cells used in manufacture that cause cancer in the body. Acellular vaccines shouldaddress many lines of misinformation.Yet Meryl Dorey ignores;
Part 2 - Meryl Dorey and pertussis vaccination - Netherlands, Denmark.
“Our surveillance data suggest a decrease in vaccine efficacy, but estimation of vaccine efficacy from surveillance data should be interpreted with caution.
However, there are no indications of significant bias from physicians' perceptions of vaccine efficacy that could have caused selective reporting of vaccinated patients 
; a higher probability of a positive serologic test result due to priming in vaccinated persons; or misclassification of cases with respect to vaccination status.” “The decrease in pertussis notification in the Netherlands at the end of 1996 may indicate a seasonal variation in incidence. The 1996 data, including those on hospital admissions, are still being analyzed. [...] Protection of these infants is the main reason for pertussis vaccination.” “In conclusion, in the Netherlands a sudden increase of pertussis notification has been observed, which seems to reflect a true increase in incidence. Nevertheless,the cause of this increase has not been definitively determined. A possible mismatch between the vaccine and the circulating Bordetella strains is being investigated.”
