‘Unhealthiest’ state has highest vaccine rate, this can’t just be a coincidence…can it?
The state that has been hailed as the ‘unhealthiest’ in the U.S also has the highest vaccine, rate. This fact seems to have puzzled health officials who just can’t seem to understand why.
The state of Mississippi which has been revealed to have “the worst overall health in the nation,” has a vaccine hit rate of over 99.4% for its kindergartners, a fact which vaccine specialists cannot get their heads round.
The state is one of the few in the country where the government, not the parents have the final decision over which vaccine a child receives, the decision was made back in 1979 and is the reason for the extremely high hit rate of vaccines.
Vaccine specialist Paul Offit fully backs the states decision on their vaccine stance, saying:
“If a parent harbors a religious belief that contradicts a basic tenant [sic] of modern medicine…the state has a right to protect the child from the irresponsible acts of the parent.”
The contradiction comes in the fact that despite an almost blanket vaccine status for the state’s children, many of them live with the poorest health in the nation.
Some of the shocking health statistics in Mississippi include:
- Children in Mississippi have more than twice the rate of infant mortality than in other states (8.8 deaths per 1000)
- Higher than average asthma-related emergency room visits
- Mississippi children are much more obese than their counterparts living in other states, 18.9% of children are obese
- 88% of all autism related patients were found to be under 21 in the state, showing a high number of young people suffer from the mental disorder
A number of the health problems that are associated with Mississippi children have been suggested that they come from the fact that the state is one of the poorest, and children here suffer from nutrition and health problems associated with poverty.
But the high number of other health problems such as autism and asthma disorders are a singularity, could it be that the high vaccine rate is somehow linked to these problems?
Of course, Offit and other vaccine supporters are blindly ignoring that the two factors might be related. Offit has even said he wants other states to follow in the footsteps of Mississippi, for them to get their vaccine rate as high as possible.
Vaccine author Keith Schofield thinks that instead, the government should go the other way and drastically reduce the number of vaccines that are given to children.
He said the medical bodies need to:
“reassess its current general vaccination program” and admit that the nation’s “excessive” vaccine schedule “has to be considered dangerous [and] irresponsible.”
