1 Merck is the exclusive supplier of mumps vaccine (including M-M-R II and ProQuad) (collectively, “Mumps Vaccine”) in the U.S.
2 This lawsuit is brought as a proposed class action against Merck for unlawfully monopolizing the U.S. market for Mumps Vaccine by engaging in a decade-long scheme to falsify and misrepresent the true efficacy of its vaccine.
3 Specifically, Merck fraudulently represented and continues to falsely represent in its labeling and elsewhere that its Mumps Vaccine has an efficacy rate of 95 percent or higher. In reality, Merck knows and has taken affirmative steps to conceal –by using improper testing techniques and falsifying test data –that its Mumps Vaccine is, and has been since at least 199

So this is why we are being distracted by all this pro-vacc marketing propaganda threads? Not just here on ATS, but it seems the past few weeks there has been an increase in the amount of pro-vacc BS all over the web.
I have no horse in this race as I have no children, but as someone who was not vaccinated as a child because my mother chose not, it is absolutely abhorrent that I cop the accusations of "baby killer" because my mother (a doctor) made an informed decision not to vaccinate me.

Vaccines are self-certified chemical cocktails sold to you by a profit machine with 100% immunity from vaccine injury claims.
That's a major conflict of interest.
If vaccines are so great, let's remove the immunity and open up the private test results.
It's a small request really.

If vaccines are truly for public health, and not for profit, then the money needs to be taken out of it. Im not talking about the money it costs people to get the vaccines, i'm talking about the insane profits that are made off of them.
I will never trust huge corporations to have anyone's best interest in mind besides their own. I guarantee that if you take the money out of the vaccine market, things would change real fast.
Pro-vaccination leaning toward forced vaccination has become a meme across the US and the better part of the world. People are lining up to scream at anyone who ask questions or has doubts claiming they are ignorant, stupid, a baby killer etc. What they don't seem to comprehend is the most people who ask questions and challenge the vaccine status-quo are far from ignorant. Most have done countless hours of research. How many of the pro-vaccination people can say the same?
I say the real ignorance is coming from the pro-vaccine bandwagoners who have let the media scare them half to death with the over hyping of the ebola "situation" and now with the measles outbreak. They spit out big pharm/media talking points as if they are the pure unfiltered truth without putting much thought, let alone research in to it.
Its getting close to a tipping point, and with how fast our freedoms in the US are disappearing, i really fear for what comes next.

It is about the science. The science is not as definitive as you would like it to be. There are many unknowns and many risk that come along with vaccinations. You can continue to parrot the same ol talking points all day long, but it doesn't change the fact that people do get sick from vaccines and the evidence that vaccines are as effective as they claim and the reason for the decline in infection is just not there outside of weak correlation.

So OP, as has already been asked, has there been an update as your link is from nearly 3 years ago?
Surely there should have been something by now?
Or is it a case of finding everything you can that is anti vaccination and posting it irrespective of how relevant it is?
