Today I sent you various mails about Tetanus vaccinations and mentioned that for a long time I wondered why ALL medical establishments kept giving unnecessary boosters shots.
Letters I sent in the past to the CDC [SEE BELOW]only caused me to believe that this organization can’t be believed probably in many things[see former mails] I am happy to be able to send to you now the following article about this issue.
Study: No Need for Adult Tetanus, Diphtheria Shots
By Robert Preidt
WEDNESDAY, Feb. 26, 2020 (HealthDay News) — Countering a U.S. government advisory, a new study suggests that adults may not need regular booster shots for tetanus and diphtheria if they received a complete vaccination series as children.
Researchers compared data gathered from millions of people in 31 countries in North America and Europe between 2001 and 2016. They found no significant differences in rates of the two diseases between countries that require adults to receive booster shots and those that don’t.
However, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention still recommends that all adults receive booster shots every 10 years.
The new findings mesh with the World Health Organization’s recent recommendation to only vaccinate adults for tetanus and diphtheria if they didn’t have a full series of shots as children.
“To be clear, this study is pro-vaccine,” said study lead researcher Mark Slifka, a professor in the molecular microbiology and immunology graduate program at Oregon Health & Science University in Portland.
“Everyone should get their series of tetanus and diphtheria shots when they’re children. But once they have done that, our data indicates they should be protected for life,” Slifka said in a university news release.
In the United States, reducing booster shots for adults could save about $1 billion a year in unnecessary medical costs, according to the researchers.
Tetanus, also known as lockjaw, is a bacterial infection that causes jaw cramping, painful muscle spasms, trouble swallowing and breathing, seizures and convulsions. Severe cases can result in death. About 30 people in the United States get tetanus each year.
Diphtheria is a bacterial infection that causes a thick covering in the back of the throat, which can lead to difficulty breathing, heart failure, paralysis or death. In the past decade, fewer than five U.S. cases of diphtheria were reported to the CDC.
Before vaccinations, the United States had about 470 tetanus-associated deaths and 1,800 deaths associated with diphtheria each year. Deaths from the diseases fell by more than 99% after introduction of vaccines.

Letters I sent in the past to the CDC
If the CDC could not answer my question then there is little reason to believe many of their statements, even if I am sure that they have superb laboratories and techniques as well as a highly knowledgeable staff.
Many years ago It was published that there has not been seen a single case of tetanus in the world of anyone who got lege artis [according to the rules] vaccinated 4 times in their life against tetanus. I asked why then all organizations vaccinate again and again -as boosters- again tetanus with accidents and so. I asked them if they had ONE published [confirmed ] report of a patient who attracted tetanus in such a case. I got up to 3 times the answer that tetanus antibodies DECREASE over time.
I explicitly stated that THIS was not my question but I was asking if there was one CASE report of tetanus as mentioned above.
They totally ignored this question and came back with the robotic answer of decreasing antibodies. This strongly diminishes my belief in their “neutrality” and I repeat: even if I am convinced that they have the best laboratories and techniques in the world as well as a highly knowledgeable staff I HOPE they publishing the truth.
