College Meningitis Outbreaks & 100s More Sick From NECC Shots

NECC        While major media appears to cover the outbreak of ‘bacterial meningitis’ on two college campuses, outlets have been unusually quiet about the hundreds of new victims across the country recently sickened with ‘fungal meningitis’ by injections from the notorious New England Compounding Center (NECC).

Concerning cases of meningitis at two ‘Class A’ schools––Princeton University and the University of California at Santa Barbara––Brady Dennis of the Washington Post says the federal government will next week allow one of the universities to begin vaccinating thousands of students with an unapproved drug:

“The disease has largely vanished from colleges and universities in recent years, as dozens of states required students to be vaccinated against it before arriving on campus. But officials who monitor the disease are troubled by the recent outbreaks in California and New Jersey, in part because of the number of cases but also because they each involve the uncommon “serogroup B” type of bacterial meningitis, for which the country so far has no approved vaccine.”

Because Princeton is the smaller school and has double the number of infected students, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) gave the school permission to administer the Bexsero vaccine to prevent further spreading.

“The vaccine, which has been shown to protect against meningococcal disease caused by serogroup B bacteria, has been approved for use in Europe and Australia but has not been licensed by U.S. regulators.”

One infected student at the Santa Barbara campus, Aaron Loy, a freshman lacrosse team player from Carlsbad, CA, Meningitis-Outbreak-collegehas suffered amputation of both feet to cleans his blood supply.  The campus there has disbursed antibiotics to 300 of the 500 exposed students, and discouraged kissing, coughing and other contacts.

Meanwhile in late October, CDC sent out a ‘digital news release’ titled  ‘Multi-State Meningitis Outbreak––Current Case Count‘ admitting: “CDC has received reports of patients presenting with paraspinal/spinal infections (e.g., epidural abscess, phlegm-on, disci-tis, vertebral osteomyelitis, or arachnoiditis at or near the site of injection). These syndromes have occurred in patients with and without evidence of fungal meningitis.

“Because these infections are distinct from meningitis and joint infections, CDC will report case counts . . . exposed to a preservative-free methylprednisolone acetate (MPA) injection, with preservative-free MPA that definitely or likely came from one of the following three lots produced by the New England Compounding Center (NECC) [05212012@68, 06292012@26, 08102012@51].”

Why are NECC injections still available?  Why weren’t they destroyed.  States with the highest number of NECC meningitis cases include:  Michigan with 264 victims; Tennessee 153; Indiana 93; Virginia 54; New Jersey 51; Ohio 20; North Carolina 18; New Hampshire 14, etc.  The National Institutes of Health claim “Viral meningitis occurs more often than bacterial meningitis, and is milder.” But that is small comfort to the 751 victims  suffering from NECC injections.

It is inexcusable that either type of this disease is so prevalent in this country.  As used Christian Bibles advocate, prayer across the country is called for:  “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land (2 Chronicles 7: 14).”
