CDC Weighs Using Oral Polio Vaccine for First Time in 20 Years

CDC Weighs Using Oral Polio Vaccine for First Time in 20 Years

As people are now vaccine-questioning, public health officials are looking for ways to prevent polio from becoming endemic again.

We reported that the state of New York reported the first polio case since 2013 and that wastewater samples from New York City indicated genetically similar samples were present in the wastewater.

In September, after another New York county reported polio virus in sewage samples, Gov. Kathy Hochul declared a state of emergency.

Now public health officials are concerned that polio is going to become endemic again, fueled, in part, by the mistrust of public health officials in the wake of the disastrous covid pandemic response.

The specter of polio becoming endemic in America again was once unthinkable. But as state public health officials embark on an urgent campaign to get more people vaccinated, the low rates among preschoolers in some pockets are evidence of both the challenges they face and the threat to the state’s youngest children — the very age group among whom polio is most likely to spread.

If vaccination rates do not increase, experts and health officials fear polio could continue to quietly circulate in the state and beyond within a pool of vulnerable people, leaving a fraction of them paralyzed — nearly 50 years after the disease was eliminated in the United States.

The disease, which in its current variant can paralyze one in 1,900 unvaccinated people it infects, used to kill and disable thousands of people a year in the United States, until polio vaccines were discovered and distributed to millions of Americans.

But now, delayed childhood vaccination throughout the world caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, combined with a rising tide of government mistrust and vaccine misinformation (which, I will note, was provided by Big Pharma and Big Media), has caused the nation’s most sustained transmission of polio since 1979, experts say, creating an emergency for health officials.

The levels of childhood vaccination were already waning before covid. Given the complete failure of the vaccines to prevent transmission and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) likely placement of the experimental product on the childhood vaccine schedule, there is little wonder parents are no longer blindly embracing vaccine rules for their children.

What to do, what to do? It appears that the CDC is now considering using an oral polio vaccine for the first time in more than 20 years to stop an outbreak in New York.

We are in discussions with our New York State and New York City colleagues about the use of nOPV,” said Dr. Janell Routh, the CDC’s team leader for domestic polio, referring to the novel oral polio vaccine. The oral vaccine the CDC is considering is a newer form that is more stable and carries less risk of mutation.

“It will be a process. It’s not something that we can pull the trigger on and have it appear overnight,” Routh told CNBC on Friday. “There will be lots of thought and discussion about the reintroduction of an oral polio vaccine into the United States,” she said.

Hopefully, the oral option will be acceptable and work. It turns out that the polio virus is likely circulating undetected in Philadelphia, according to the city’s top health official.

“I do suspect that if we look,” Health Commissioner Cheryl Bettigole said in an interview earlier this month, “we might find it.”

…Philadelphia currently tests wastewater only to find COVID-19. But Bettigole said she hopes to adapt the city’s testing program to proactively look for polio with the goal of getting ahead of potential spread in communities where people are unvaccinated or under-vaccinated. The virus, which reproduces in the intestines and sheds in stool, spreads through hand-to-mouth contact.

“One case of paralytic polio potentially indicates that there may be hundreds of other cases,” the city’s health department cautions.

One of the consequences of the gross mismanagement of the covid response is that Americans are now vaccine-questioning when it comes to injections. Hopefully this oral vaccine is the solution to today’s polio situation.

Comments

The refusal of the public health community and CDC in particular, to forthrightly address the legitimate questions raised during Rona led to the level of distrust. The absolutely tone deaf CDC decision to place the Rona jab on the vax schedule for children is an example of just how out of touch they are. They don’t realize how low their credibility is or how much ordinary people despise them because they see how their decisions seem to have been politically influenced and crafted to assist pharma.

Torching credibility to serve a democrat master has consequences.

Tell me that 5 million illegal aliens in 2 years has nothing to do with this.

    Exactly. Thisnis where the polio and all the other crap comes from

    It’s kind of like not describing the “black” suspect as black… but Lordy Lordy, if he turns out to be White, you will know it right away!

    By the way, my cousin had polio for
    The neck down 2 yrs after the initial polio vaccine was developed.

    Despite my uncle , of 13 y/o dying from polio, her mother did not have her children vaccinated for it.
    It was horrible. 16 and could only move her neck the rest of her life

    My brother sister and I had polio all at the same time, but it was a very weak variety of it

    Thank God….

OK, I am old. Back when TV was only B & W and a couple of channels, every summer there was constant coverage of all the kids getting polio, being crippled, or ending up in iron lungs. There was a constant panic among parents that their kids were going to get it. When the Salk vaccine came out, doctors were swamped with parents bringing their kids in for the shot and boosters. I was one of those kids.

A couple of years later, when the Sabin oral form was released, everyone was pushing doses. Besides doctors, schools were giving them. Employers were getting them and giving them to their employees to give to their kids. Besides the shots, I got maybe 4-5 of the sugar cube doses.

I have nothing against oral vaccine. The Sabin form both worked AND as far as I know did not have any major side effects. We know how to make it. It may take gearing up again, but it would be simpler and cheaper probably than gearing up an entirely new vaccine just because it is new. The old vaccine is safe, proved clinically. This new one will be using our kids as test subjects just like the COVID vaccines were being tested on the general population and found wanting. [The manufacturers now admit that what they were giving us wasn’t really a vaccine as we mere peasants know vaccines.]

Thank you, no. I’m not taking the new and unknown drugs, and I will talk to my children about not getting them for my grandchildren until we know if and how the FDA, CDC, and Federal government are attacking us.

    Yup. But.

    The COVID circus has so damaged my faith and my trust in the government-pharmaceutical complex that I would no longer be comfortable with having a family member take these vaccines… solely because I would have no confidence that they are in fact the original vaccines, and hadn’t been covertly modified in some way.

    Yes, I’m that paranoid. Why shouldn’t I be?

    Watching the usual suspects frantically “fact checking” all these independent reports just reinforces them for me.

    Bill Gates, the man who predicted the precise year of COVID: “The world today has 6.8 billion people. That’s headed up to about 9 billion… Now, if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by, perhaps, 10 or 15%.”

    Another quote frantically fact-checked, but you can hear him say it with your own ears.

    Fedguv: transparent or underhanded? Ask the illegals who were given free cell phones by the feds, just so they could be tracked like ankle bracelets.

    None of this would even have been an issue had the fedguv itself not encouraged the Great Unwashed to flow over the border like a Snohomish mudslide.

      Hmmm. Having had varicose veins without incident for decades, I suddenly got blood clots early this year in one leg. Scared the heck out of me, but repeated scans showed they were not in the (dangerous) deep veins. They very gradually dissolved over the next 6 months without medication. You now have me wondering about the Covid shots.

        If they actually dissolved, they were probably genuine. From what I’ve read, this stuff doesn’t dissolve. It’s like Silly String.

        And on another note… when I did a fast web search to find out what portion of the USA was most often victimized by mudslides, I came across this page: Landslides and Mudslides Fact Sheet. Note whose entirely inappropriate website this page is on. Seriously, these people will not stay in their damn lane.

      Whether by deliberate design or simply as a consequence the d/prog have largely created a low trust society.

    I remember those sugar cubes. I think I only had it twice but I could be wrong.

    You’re right, it would be easier to produce the old vaccine and parents would trust it. Even if the parents never had it given to them, there are enough of us from the 1960s that were given that vaccine. Trust in new vaccines is going to be low for a long, long time.

It would also be a great public service for someone to wrap Bill Gates’ head in duct tape double and triple wrapping the mouth. That guy just won’t shut up about the need to get the entire world vaccinated while also pontificating about the over-population crisis.

Is this the sugar cube method?

Live-virus polio vaccines don’t have adjuvants, with their potentially nasty side effects, so that’s a plus.

Chairman Joe loves huge government programs that he can have his staff order everyone around.

Mr. 10% wants to train everyone to know that the thinking has been done for you and you lemmings must obey!

The oral polio vaccine does tend to spread immunity faster and further, as one can get “vaccinated” even if one has not taken the vaccine. This occurs because someone who does take the vaccine actually gets a mild case of polio, and therefore others can (and in a crowded urban environment probably will) catch this mild form of polio from a newly vaccinated person.

In any case, polio and covid are very different sorts of virus in that covid is an RNA (“retro”) virus but polio is a DNA virus. DNA viruses are almost always genetically stable, while RNA viruses are not.

And so the poor performance of vaccination against covid to some extent should have been expected. Yet the CDC info factory cranked up almost immediately promising that the vax would bring an end to the pandemic (and if enough people took it, perhaps it could even be eradicated from the human ecosystem for good.

This was never a realistic assumption, yet it was “the narrative” throughout 2020 and 2021.

In any case, polio vaccine came along during what’s sometimes known as “the golden age” of medicine, when physicians and medical scientists were widely trusted, and their recommendations seldom challenged by anyone other than a few cranks. Whereas we live in an era of widespread distrust of just about everything.

CDC might mitigate the damage if it were to come clean on this, yet somehow I doubt it has the integrity and strength to do so.

Time to invest in iron lung futures?

Is there a worse recommendation than from CDC? Deception is their stock in trade. Look elsewhere for credible references, this government cannot be relied upon to even set a public clock.
