If it wasn’t bad enough that vaccines are still made with toxic controversial ingredients such as thimerosal, many are about to be manufactured in China with no oversight from other countries.
Because of a recent classification change, Chinese manufactured vaccines have been given the greenlight to be shipped in bulk to as many as 152 low and middle-income countries and can now bypass any inspection from any other country, including the U.S. — all because of the work of the Clinton Foundation.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has reported that vaccines will be pre-qualified, meaning they are so “confident in the quality, safety and effectiveness of vaccines that are made in China” that other countries will no longer test them for safety.
The Clinton Foundation, which is heavily involved in vaccine programs across the world, has reportedly been working with the Chinese vaccine manufacturers to give them pre-qualification, which was achieved in 2014 with little mention by the mainstream media.
A report by WHO states: “The Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) has been working with Chinese suppliers to support their applications for WHO prequalification for several vaccine candidates for the last two years, says Joshua Chu, CHAI’s Director, Vaccines Markets.”
Can we trust China to manufacture vaccines? That may be hard for many people to do after the recent Chinese vaccine scandal.
This Year’s China Vaccine Scandal
Just recently Chinese vaccine manufacturers, wholesale sellers, and buyers came under fire over improperly transported and expired vaccines. The vaccinations were not refrigerated, and sold near their expiration dates, which made them virtually useless.
More than 130 people were arrested, but most importantly it shed light on flaws within the system.
Another situation occurred in 2013 after 17 children, including 8 infants, passed away after receiving a Hepatitis B vaccine. Officials said the deaths were not linked to the vaccines, but the incident raised eyebrows over the safety of vaccines in China.
There is weak oversight in the process, leaving the vaccine makers and distributors to escape regulation from outside of China even when vaccines are being shipped to other countries. Liability for those who may be hurt from such vaccines shipped across the world is also a bigger concern.
Lance Rodewald, head of WHO’s expanded program on immunization (EPI) in China, had this to say: – “(the new regulations) have made it possible for the United Nations and other agencies to procure life-saving vaccines for countries without the capacity to make high quality vaccines or the resources to purchase them.”
But while many surely do follow the regulations, the lack of oversight is troubling to others, especially considering that more and more vaccines from China could make their way to the U.S. in the coming years.
One thing I’m grateful for are vaccines that save lives. Let’s all do our part to counter anti-vaccination disinformation that threatens lives. t.co/EW6TQEIaif
