[2005 pdf] The Meningococcal Gold Rush Pt 1 By Barbara Sumner Burstyn & Ron Law
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: New Zealand's meningococcal disease story, as unravelled
through analysis of previously secret documents obtained under the Official
Information Act, reveals that the New Zealand government, media and public have
been mislead and manipulated by officials, advisors and scientists alike.
As a result of this manipulation, the government has committed an unprecedented 200 million taxpayer dollars to a mass vaccination experiment of 1.15 million New Zealand children with an untested and experimental vaccine. Despite being reassured by a bevy of pro-vaccine and vaccine manufacturer sponsored experts and none-less than the Minister of Health herself that the MeNZB(tm) vaccine is thoroughly tested and proven to be safe and effective, we reveal that Chiron's MeNZB(tm) vaccine was never used in the trails used to approve its license. We reveal that despite assurances, there is no evidence that the MeNZB(tm) vaccine will actually work as promised.
We believe that the magnitude of policy, regulatory and scientific misconduct is such that not only should vaccination with this vaccine be halted forthwith, but that the meningococcal vaccination program should be independently audited and the circumstances surrounding the development and implementation of the program subjected to a full Royal Commission of Inquiry.

Controversial Vaccine Exported (1988 to 1991.
Results of the vaccine trial were compiled 1991. The vaccine was providing protection in 57% of cases. That was not enough to add it to the Norwegian vaccination program. As the meningococcus b epidemic was dying out, the vaccine was never used in Norway the way it was meant to be. After the request from the World Health Organization (WHO), the vaccine was exported to New Zealand, during 2001.....As Norwegian authorities were paying compensation to vaccine victims, the same vaccine was exported to New Zealand and used on small kids. To say it nice, they enlisted hundreds of thousands of small kids into a gigantic experiment, says Jan Helge Solbakk, professor in medical ethics.
In an exclusive to scoop.co.nz, Jonathan Eisen reveals that the now-famous "Norwegian parent vaccine" from which the New Zealand meningococcal vaccine was "derived" and which has been used to justify claims of "safety" and "efficacy"... was not even released in Norway, after scientists rejected it on the ground that it was only marginally effective, and that the meningitis epidemic in Norway had tapered off without the vaccine.
