Note From Dr Gary Kohls: Fear of an imaginary measles crisis created by multi-billion-dollar companies like Merck, Glaxo, Pfizer, Sanofi, Eli Lilly – and then propagated by the mainstream media, which is funded largely by these very same companies

Epic Medical Systems, a company that sells medical records software, has introduced a way to use patient information to identify and track down anyone who hasn’t been vaccinated. The software is used by thousands of hospitals in the U.S.

Jens Spahn, the German Health Minister, has recently introduced legislation that would require parents to vaccinate their children – or face government fines and exclusion from schools. The fines could be as much as 2,500 euros, or about $2,800 USD.

These moves come in the midst of a measles outbreak during which the death toll has skyrocketed from zero to… well, zero. And while the potential side effects are more extensive than the effects of the virus itself, public health officials here and abroad are making aggressive moves to invade our privacy, strip away our freedoms, and force vaccination upon us.

In 2018, Pharmaceutical giant Merck generated $1.8 BILLION in revenue from the MMR vaccine alone.

It’s time to wake up.

Your Private Information is Not Private

Doctors in the U.S. are utilizing your private medical records to identify unvaccinated patients and push them to receive the MMR vaccine. It is not exclusive to patients who may have been exposed. Family and friends of patients can be screened, and anyone who hasn’t received the vaccine may receive targeted messages about vaccination.

Back in March, we were attacked in a dishonest smear campaign on NBC’s TODAY show, which spread lies and misinformation about the MMR vaccine without asking us for any input. A week or so later, we warned that medical tyranny and forced vaccinations were imminent, pointing to state restriction of medical freedoms, the oppressive presence of BIG Pharma in our regulatory and legislative bodies, and the massive propaganda machine which is currently running at full steam.

Less than two weeks later, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio declared a public health emergency and mandated that all children in certain zip codes would be required to show proof of vaccination or face fines. He set a 48-hour deadline for compliance; he promised to use medical records to hunt down families who didn’t comply.

Just last week, we wrote about how Amazon’s voice assistant, Alexa, is now HIPAA compliant and able to access your private medical information. And even though there is no official certification process for becoming HIPAA compliant, Amazon netted over $15 billion in market cap the weekend after the announcement.

Now, Epic Medical systems is teaching hospitals and clinics how to use their software to target and isolate anyone who is unvaccinated or lives in an area where they are likely to be unvaccinated. And HIPAA won’t protect you.

According to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS):

The HIPAA Privacy Rule recognizes the legitimate need for public health authorities and others responsible for ensuring public health and safety to have access to protected health information to carry out their public health mission. The Rule also recognizes that public health reports made by covered entities are an important means of identifying threats to the health and safety of the public at large, as well as individuals. Accordingly, the Rule permits covered entities to disclose protected health information without authorization for specified public health purposes.”

It’s time to wake up.

Big Pharma and the Propaganda Machine

As we’ve said before, the propaganda machine is currently firing on all cylinders. You can’t open a newspaper without seeing a reference to the “measles outbreak” and how the U.S. has “the highest number of cases since 1994.” And as long as there seems to be some kind of public health emergency, doctors, health systems, governments, and Big Pharma can violate our basic right to privacy in the name of “the greater good.”

This is a dangerous step by the healthcare industry, and Epic already has clients in four states – New York, Illinois, Texas, and California – who are using their software to screen and track down unvaccinated Americans. Jordan Tucker, who works for Epic and is overseeing the new project, explained its function, saying “we can find all those patients missing the MMR vaccine and send out a message to patients or providers.”

This is exactly what was laid out in the National Adult Immunization Plan, one major objective of which is to “increase community demand” for vaccinations. And they’re doing this by stirring up animosity between parents who choose to vaccinate and parents who don’t. We’ve heard from our readers how schools are releasing information about student vaccination, and how parents and children are receiving threatening letters or being publicly shamed and ostracized for exercising their freedom of medical choice.

The mainstream media and government, funded by the very companies that manufacture and sell these vaccines, are doing everything they can to fabricate a public health emergency that can be used to increase their control over our health decisions. They’re also creating a proverbial lynch mob, doing their best to ensure that anyone who declines a vaccination is ridiculed, humiliated, and excluded socially.

And the influence of the pharmaceutical companies is substantial. Merck manufactures and owns the patents to MMR vaccines, including MMRII and Proquad, an MMR/Varicella combo vaccine. These vaccines are both purchased under contract by the CDC, in addition to the private sector. And Merck can’t be happy about a drop in vaccinations…

In 2018, Merck generated $1.8 BILLION in revenue from the MMR vaccine alone.

Mandatory vaccines would mean a guaranteed customer base of over 4 million babies each year in the U.S. Currently, there are about 100,000 American children under age 2 who are not vaccinated, a trend which is going up thanks to groups advocating for vaccine safety and accountability. This represents tens of millions in lost revenue for Merck, and billions across the vaccine industry every year. Walgreens sells the MMR vaccine at $99.99 a pop.

As vaccine exemptions and abstentions increase, the industry continues to lose revenue. This expands to insurance providers, pharmacies, and a host of industries associated with vaccine manufacturing and sales. This is why we’re seeing a frantic effort by the media, government, and medical industry to denounce safety advocates, exaggerate disease risks, and introduce an age of mandatory vaccination.

It’s time to wake up.

Germany Pushes for Mandatory Vaccinations

This influence, combined with the media’s sensationalizing of what is otherwise a normal childhood illness, is now changing policy abroad. German Health Minister Jens Spahn is working on national legislation that would require all German parents to vaccinate their children or face steep fines and exclusion from the educational system. According to Spahn himself, the fines may be as high as 2,500 euros.

With homeschooling being outlawed in Germany, perhaps this would be the avenue back to homeschooling there… One can dream, right?

To put that into perspective, the average monthly rent for a 3-bedroom apartment in Germany is about 1,170 euros. The average monthly salary is 2,217.51 euros. The fines that Spahn proposes could financially ruin a German family who chooses not to vaccinate, especially if fines are levied for each child.

Nevertheless, Spahn believes that he has bipartisan support for the new legislation, and he’s probably right. According to Reuters:

Spahn believes he has broad support for his draft law in the ruling coalition of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s conservatives, to which he belongs, and the left-leaning Social Democrats (SPD).

SPD health policy expert Karl Lauterbach spoke of a “very good basis” for a joint discussion. “It will not work without fines,” he told the Augsburger Allgemeine newspaper.”

This new proposed law is born out of fear. Fear of an imaginary crisis created by multi-billion-dollar companies like Merck, Sanofi, and Eli Lilly. Fear propagated by the mainstream media, which is funded largely by these very same companies. Fear that thrives in a social media environment that hides and silences opposing information.

And as social media platforms and government agencies scream and cry and throw veritable tantrums about the “misinformation” being spread by “anti-vaxxers,” they are, ironically, peddling misinformation themselves. What you’re seeing in the mainstream media is biased and incorrect, while the truth continues to be actively silenced.

It’s time to wake up.

The Truth About Measles and the MMR Vaccine

From 1959-1962 – just before the vaccine was introduced, measles was fatal in only 0.01% of cases. And while the number of unvaccinated children has quadrupled since 2001, from 2000-2016 measles deaths decreased by 84%. But there are other factors at play when it comes to the dangers of measles.

Malnutrition, especially vitamin A deficiency, is a primary cause of about 90,000 measles deaths annually in underdeveloped nations. In the U.S. and other developed countries, up to 92% of hospitalized measles patients are low in vitamin A. Better nutrition and hygiene may explain the decline in measles mortality even before the vaccine existed.

And the numbers that are used to scare us into submission are not numbers that you can trust. About 90% of measles cases are benign and go unreported, meaning that reported cases of measles only constitute about 10% of all cases. Using reported cases to calculate mortality rates result in numbers that are artificially inflated by a factor of 10.

Jens Spahn, Merck, and the CDC would have you believe that we are in the midst of an epidemic crisis. After all, there have been over 450 confirmed cases of measles in the U.S. this year alone. They’d have you believe that your freedom to choose what goes into your body – and even your constitutional right to religious freedom – must be forfeited in order to save the children. How many must die?

Since the turn of the millennium, there have been 11 deaths from measles in the U.S.

To put that in perspective, here are some unique death rates in the U.S. from 1999-2014:

  • Death from contact with powered lawnmower: 951
  • Death from a fall involving ice-skates, skis, roller-skates or skateboards: 1,139
  • Death from a fall from tree: 1,413
  • Death from a fall involving bed: 10,386

You are 1,038.6 times more likely to die falling out of bed than from measles.

In 2017, 16 Americans died from lightning strikes – more than have died from measles in the last 20 years. In fact, according to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), you’re more likely to die from the MMR vaccine than you are from measles.

While the mortality from measles in the U.S. remains virtually non-existent, the risks of receiving untested vaccines for which the manufacturers are not liable are robust. Serious complications reported by Merck in the ProQuad product insert include:

  • measles
  • atypical measles
  • vaccine strain varicella
  • varicella-like rash
  • herpes zoster
  • herpes simplex
  • pneumonia and respiratory infection
  • pneumonitis
  • bronchitis
  • epididymitis
  • cellulitis
  • skin infection
  • subacute sclerosing panencephalitis
  • aseptic meningitis
  • thrombocytopenia
  • aplastic anemia (anemia due to the bone marrow’s inability to produce platelets, red and white blood cells)
  • lymphadenitis (inflammation of the lymph nodes)
  • anaphylaxis including related symptoms of peripheral, angioneurotic and facial edema
  • agitation
  • ocular palsies
  • necrotizing retinitis (inflammation of the eye)
  • nerve deafness
  • optic and retrobulbar neuritis (inflammation of the optic nerve)
  • Bell’s palsy (sudden but temporary weakness of one half of the face)
  • cerebrovascular accident (stroke)
  • acute disseminated encephalomyelitis
  • measles inclusion body encephalitis
  • transverse myelitis
  • encephalopathy
  • Guillain-Barré syndrome
  • syncope (fainting)
  • tremor
  • dizziness
  • paraesthesia
  • febrile seizure
  • afebrile seizures or convulsions
  • polyneuropathy (dysfunction of numerous peripheral nerves of the body)
  • Stevens-Johnson syndrome
  • Henoch-Schönlein purpura
  • acute hemorrhagic edema of infancy
  • erythema multiforme
  • panniculitis
  • arthritis
  • death


Our freedom and privacy are no longer at risk; they are actively under attack. The influence of Big Pharma is so great that Americans are being forced to inject their children with risky vaccinations to avoid fines and jail time. Our private medical records are being used to track us down in an attempt to shame or coerce us into compliance. International policies are being drawn that will forever alter the course of history when it comes to medical freedom of choice.

If I am forced to choose between a fine and jail time or the life of my children, personally, I would choose the life of my children every day of the week and twice on Sundays. And if we would all do this, we would force them to submit to our will rather than us submitting to theirs.

We need to stop sleeping. We need to be loud and we need to be vigilant. We need to be writing and calling our representatives. We need to be talking to our friends, families, and neighbors so that they can better understand our concerns and see us in a light different than the one cast by the mainstream media. We need to dissent. We need to resist. No government will ever dictate what I inject into my body or the bodies of my children.

Wake up. Stand up. Make your voices heard. We are under attack, and what we do today will determine our fate tomorrow.

If, when, and how to vaccinate your children can be a difficult road to navigate. Go here to get the information you need to make a fully informed decision that’s right for your family.
