131 African Children Vaccinated at Gunpoint. Do Bill Gates and Paul Offit Approve?

The Malawi Voice is reporting that a group of families who took their children out of the country, to Mozambique, to avoid the free measles vaccine that was being distributed, were rounded up by police and vaccinated at gunpoint upon returning to the country.

The vaccine safety/choice community has been hearing reports of this happening in Africa for more than a year now, but this is the first official story that I have heard thus far and thus been able to report. In this case the District Health Officer himself, Dr. Matchaya, freely admitted to the newspaper that this was done.

"According to Dr. Medison Matchaya District Health Officer for Nsanje, medics went to vaccinate the children in Nsanje under police escort.

"We were alerted that some children who were hiding in Mozambique were back in the country and we asked police to escort the health officials in order to vaccinate them and we have managed to vaccinate about 131 children," said Matchaya.

This week, Bill Gates, working on another round of publicity for his "Year of the Vaccines" campaign (which just happens to fall on the year that he became an owner of a vaccine company, funny that) has declared at the GAVI meeting that the world needs to work toward "vaccine equity". He wants every child on the planet vaccinated. (Which in my book only matters when he is of course elected King of the World, which he hasn't been. Gates is not even a doctor, but just some guy who dropped out of college and made a bunch of cash on his buggy software via pushy business practices. I am more qualified to give medical advice than Gates is.)

"It's now that we are going to start to get the last two vaccines that rich kids take for granted, Pneumococcal and RotaVirus, and over these next five years, get them out to every child everywhere. That means for the first time ever, that we have equity in vaccines. That we don't take the poorest children who are actually the most susceptible to these diseases, and the benefit of giving them the vaccine is the highest, and yet in the past, they've been the ones who don't get it. And so, it really is, in the achievement of equity, this is a very important day. Now our foundation wants to do its part, so I am pleased to announce to you that we are pledging and additional billion dollars... (pause for lengthy applause)... Thank you... alright, thank you... It's not every day we give away a billion dollars, but for a cause like this it is exciting to be doing it. That will be over the next five years."

So will Bill "Not a Doctor" Gates' billion dollars go to making sure that the basic human right not to be injected with any substance against ones will is respected? Or will some of it go to guns to force people to take the vaccines that they don't want?

Will any of that billion to care for children who suffer vaccine injury? Wanna know the difference between my vaccine injured son a let's say, a child in a small African village who suffers a vaccine encephalopathy? In our house we have doors with locks on them to keep him safe inside, and school systems that are legally obligated to serve him. Take a moment and imagine what it would be like to try to keep your neurologically impaired child alive in rural Africa for a month or two. Just watched a short documentary about a new neurological illness befalling children in one African village. Parents have to tie their children to the side of their homes with a rope to prevent them from walking away and dying. That is how they live their entire lives.

I submitted the following media inquiry to the Gates Foundation. I have not waited for a response, as I understand that these questions have been sent in on several occasions and no one that I know of has ever received a response. I will amend this article if they do respond:

"Subject: Vaccination forced at gun point
Date: Sat, 09 Jul 2011 11:50:43 -0400
From: Ginger Taylor
To: media@gatesfoundation.org

I am writing a piece and I am looking for comment from Bill Gates or the Gates Foundation on forced vaccination.

Bill Gates and the Gates Foundation have donated billions to new global vaccination campaigns over the next decade. Gates announced at GAVI a billion over the next five years to get Pneumococcal and Rotavirus vaccines "out to every child everywhere".

But, not every family wants these vaccines or believes that they are in their child's best interest, and of course, all vaccines carry risk of serious injury or even death to some people.

In light of this, do Bill Gates and The Gates Foundation believe that people should be coerced or forced into vaccinating against their will in violation if their human rights to decide what pharmaceuticals go into their bodies?

Further, for more than a year now, we in the vaccine safety/choice community have been hearing about people being vaccinated at gun point in Africa, but had not had any confirmation of these reports. Today an official in Malawi confirmed that he lead such an effort, and used police to force vaccinate children of families who did not want the measles vaccine.

Do Bill Gates and the Gates Foundation support or condemn this practice?

Additionally, in the US, vaccine injury (and deaths) are recognized by all involved in vaccination and our Department of Health and Human Services has a compensation program that was set up to provide financial compensation to those injured by vaccines so that their loved ones could care for them. Will the Gates Foundation be setting up a similar system to care for those who will be injured by their vaccine campaigns?

I am equally as interested in Paul Offit's thoughts on this, as it is a huge payday for him in future royalties. Bill Gates money is going to to buy his vaccine for every single person in the entire world. Offit advocates coerced vaccination, recommending that people be forced to take classes before being "allowed" to refuse a shot for themselves or their child. In the trailer for The Greater Good, Offit says, "Sadly, some people don't do what it best for their children unless it is mandated."

Note that he is not the only one advocating mandated vaccination. Gunpoint is one hell of a mandate. Does he believe that this level of coercion, threatening to kill someone if they don't vaccinate, is appropriate?

I sent the following to Dr. Offit. He has responded to my inquiries before, so there is a much better chance I will hear back from him. I will let you know if he responds.

Dr. Offit,

You have spoken out in favor of vaccine mandates and compelling individuals to take an education course on vaccination before they would be allowed to turn down a vaccine for themselves or their children.

For more than a year now, we in the vaccine safety/choice community have been hearing about people being vaccinated at gun point in Africa, but had not had any confirmation of these reports. Today an official in Malawi confirmed that he lead such an effort, and used police to force vaccinate children of families who did not want the measles vaccine.

So the questions are... just how insane does this vaccine push have to get before the world stands up and says "NO!".  How far does this go... this Doctocracy?  How many shots?  How many other medical interventions?

This has officially become the plot of a bad movie. Egomaniac billionaire desperate to leave a legacy proving he is the most wonderful man in the world, destroys long term health of civilization, pits doctors against patients and citizens against governments (and NGOs who have become delusional that they are actually governments with power over people). Gates and GAVI seem to want all the rights to make people's health decisions for them, but I don't see them talking about taking any of the responsibilities for the outcomes of those decisions.

When I heard "vaccine equity" I immediately thought, "so now children in rural Africa and Asia will have the same access to immune dysfunction and brain damage that my son has?" Congratulations children of the world?  When rich, educated, established Americans (even medical professionals) can't get recognition and proper care for their vaccine injured children, what chance do you think poor single African mother has?  And we now know that if she tries to say no in the first place, there is a chance that a gun will be used to make her do what Bill Gates has decided is good for her child.

Michael Belkin noted that Melinda Gates has already been praising Malawi for their vaccine program:

‘How is it that they do that? What I found was that the vision and dedication of the country’s top leadership has been absolutely instrumental in terms of making success in this area. So the country, one of the commitments that they’ve made is to build out this cadre of front line workers they call them in their country health surveillance assistants. So every month these 11,000 health surveillance assistants spend 3 weeks out in the villages, talking with the villagers providing basic vaccinations … They make sure the vaccinations happen, not only at the village level but all the way back through the system.’

Thank you for asking these questions, Ginger. I won't hold my breath that you will get replies to these very significant questions. You have a way of framing the problems down to the very core issues.

I have a problem with someone making somebody doing anything at gunpoint. period.

hard for me to stomach . . yet, so eternally grateful for your awareness . . cps took my 2 boys away because i chose alternative medicine and declined vaccinations i.e. medical neglect. . then they vaccinated them in spite of my strenuous objections, anyways. after 4years im up to 50 hours p/wk with them . .. . my stomach still churns from it all, so this is hard for me to even speak about . . we will help correct this matter someday, bless u 4your speaking out! Heather & co.

anyways, what a greedy, ignorant man that bill gates is, truly a tragedy! 2 bad the herds revere him like he's a hero . . lets pray 4 enlightenment!

Sandy said...

A terrible and tragic situation. There is no reason whatsoever why the children should have been vaccinated, on the contrary – and forced vaccination should be legally defined as an act of criminality.
Vaccine promoters obviously do not appreciate being reminded of the fact that vaccine induced herd immunity is a myth. More people realise this and are becoming critical regarding vaccines. This is why we are seeing mandates.
The majority of people in developing countries suffer from one or more diseases and have compromised immune systems. People who are ill and have compromised immunity should never be vaccinated as it makes them even more ill.
Who believes that forced vaccination doesn’t happen under gunpoint in the developing world too? In Maryland USA children were force vaccinated in the presence of armed police and attack dogs:

It is high time that steps are made towards a universal declaration which states that we own our bodies!

N Engl J Med. 2011 Jun 16;364(24):2316-23.
Vaccine-derived poliomyelitis 12 years after infection in Minnesota.

A 44-year-old woman with long-standing common variable immunodeficiency who was receiving intravenous immune globulin suddenly had paralysis of all four limbs and the respiratory muscles, resulting in death. Type 2 vaccine-derived poliovirus was isolated from stool. Infection probably occurred 11.9 years earlier (95% confidence interval [CI], 10.9 to 13.2), when her child received the oral poliovirus vaccine.


Think of the tens if not hundreds of millions of poor, malnourished Africans, Pakistanis, Afgans given the oral polio vaccine donated by Warren Buffet, Ted Turner and Bill Gates. In 12 years or less it will be known as genocide, biological warfare under the auspices of good will.

What perhaps makes it more dangerous in countries without a strong "rule of law" tradition is that arbitrary regimes can get away with it much more easily. That being said, not all vaccination is bad.

Reminds me of an article that was on AoA about two years ago titled "The Gates Of Hell"..

starfishmoonreflections said...

Just curious if Bill Gates takes all these vaccines himself?

Tony Banny said...

Thanks Ginger for this awareness campaign. You are my definition of the word HERO..Now all I want is for all the painfully ignorant folk out there to consider this puzzle:
Some billionaire guy whose family has a long history of EUGENICS and who has been preaching for decades that the population growth is the cause of the world's problems (Bill(y)Goats pledges billions of worthless paper into the development of vaccines aimed at the same children he doesn't want born!!!
Question: To KILL or TO HEAL?????
That said, I think, good people, that the only contribution we can make is to spread messages like this on all social media sites. I post all such links on my facebook page..Do same please
