The medical literature has a surprising number of
studies documenting vaccine failure. Measles, mumps, small pox, polio and Hib outbreaks
have all occurred in vaccinated populations. [11, 12, 13, 14 ,15]
In 1989 the CDC reported: "Among school-aged children, [measles] outbreaks have
occurred in schools with vaccination levels of greater than 98 percent. 
[They] have occurred in all parts of the country, including areas that had not reported
measles for years."  The CDC even reported a measles
outbreak in a documented 100 percent vaccinated population.  A
study examining this phenomenon concluded, "The apparent paradox is that as
measles immunization rates rise to high levels in a population, measles becomes a disease
of immunized persons."  A more recent study
found that measles vaccination "produces immune suppression which contributes to
an increased susceptibility to other infections."[19a]
These studies suggests that the goal of complete immunization is actually
counterproductive, a notion underscored by instances in which epidemics followed complete
immunization of entire countries. Japan experienced yearly increases in small pox
following the introduction of compulsory vaccines in 1872. By 1892, there were 29,979
deaths, and all had been vaccinated.  Early in this
century, the Philippines experienced their worst smallpox epidemic ever after 8 million
people received 24.5 million vaccine doses; the death rate quadrupled as a result.  In 1989, the country of Oman experienced a widespread polio
outbreak six months after achieving complete vaccination. 
In the U.S. in 1986, 90% of 1300 pertussis cases in Kansas were "adequately
vaccinated."  72% of pertussis cases in the 1993
Chicago outbreak were fully up to date with their vaccinations.
