While it appears that the recent measles hysteria pushed a button that rocketed nearly all 50 states to introduce vaccine bills simultaneously, calling to restrict and/or remove vaccine exemptions for children, the plan has actually been evolving for a long time. The flurry of legislative actions is rooted in the Healthy People guidelines which began 35 years ago.

In 1976, Congress created The Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP) to coordinate disease prevention and health promotion efforts across the United States. Three years later, Surgeon General Julius B Richmond chronicled the state of health in America, then defined five quantitative goals for public health. The document came to be referred to as Healthy People. With the help of Assistant Surgeon General Michael McGinnis, the formal publication was released in 1979. In 1980, a companion piece written by the Institutes of Medicine – Promoting Health/Preventing Disease: Objectives for the Nation – set forth 226 specific, measurable health objectives. This was the action plan for the Healthy People goals. These two documents, considered to be “landmarks” in the history of public health, became Healthy People 1990.

Lofty goals were put forth for many areas of health, but some of the first directives for mass vaccination were established in Healthy People 1990. For example, one goal was to achieve at least a 60% influenza vaccination rate among high-risk populations. Another was to fully vaccinate all children with MMR, polio and DTP by two years of age.

The goals were meant to be national in scope. But 1980s were long before the age of instant internet communication and social media. Few of the objectives were met in the time span between 1980 and 1990. Therefore, planning the objectives for the next decade began in 1987, engaging broad-based input from public health officials across the country.

By the time Healthy People 2000 was released in 1990, more than 7,000 persons and public health organizations at the local, state, and national levels had participated in the development of 22 topics with 312 objectives. Included in Healthy People 2000 were goals to ensure all children were fully vaccinated with the three approved vaccines – DTP, polio and MMR – and all older adults were vaccinated with both influenza and pneumonia vaccines.

In 2010, the next generation of guidelines were released, framed as Healthy People 2020. The current recommendations are vast in scope and include government intrusion into nearly ever conceivable area of personal life and health. What started out as 15 topics and 226 objectives in 1990 has grown to 42 topics and more than 1,200 objectives for 2020. 

Representatives from more than 50 Federal Agencies helped develop the Healthy People 2020 topics. Representatives from each agency also worked with the Federal Interagency Workgroup (FIW), a task force that includes, among others, the Departments of Agriculture, Education, and Transportation. The massive efforts were coordinated by The Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP), in conjunction with the Department of HHS. All agencies drew on the expertise of the Assistant Secretary’s extensive Advisory Committee on National Health Promotion and Disease Prevention. The Assistant Secretary of Health, who reports directly to the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HSS), has direct oversight of ODPHP activities. HSS has more than 77,000 employees. Thousands of people participated in the development of Healthy People 2020 and have a stake in its implementation.

U.S. National Vaccine Plan

In 2010, partners from all over the world came together with a global commitment to vaccination, declaring 2010 to 2020 as the Decade of Vaccines.  American children today receive 49 doses of 16 different vaccines before 5 years of age. There is no end in sight with at least 300 vaccines in the current developmental pipeline. 

The National Vaccine Plan, developed by the U.S. Department of Human Services (HSS), is the roadmap for a “21st century vaccine and immunization enterprise.” It lays bare the incestuous public-private relationship between the pharmaceutical vaccine manufacturers, the U.S. government, and the World Health Rulers. The plan includes specific outlines and strategies for advancing vaccine R&D in conjunction with the NIH and FDA; calls for U.S. government guaranteed financing, supply, and distribution of vaccines; and requests funding for new, pro-vaccine information pieces to be distributed consumers and all health care providers.

The National Vaccine Implementation Plan was designed to coordinate with Healthy People 2020. This plan outlines the goals and objectives to achieve increase vaccination over a 10-year period, with action steps, processes, and measurable outcomes to be achieved between 2012 and 2015. The implementation plan includes five broad objectives:

  1. Develop new and improved vaccines

  2. Enhance the vaccine safety system

  3. Support communications to enhance informed vaccine decision-making

  4. Ensure a stable supply of, access to and better use of recommended vaccines

  5. Increase global prevention through vaccination

In December 2014, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation released a special report called Outbreaks: Protecting Americans from Infectious Diseases. The first 10 pages discuss Ebola, superbugs, tuberculosis, pandemic flu and mosquito-borne diseases, the major infectious disease threats seen today. The document then transitions to a lengthy discussion about vaccines and the major risk of infection for unvaccinated children.

Elimination of Exemptions: The Playbook

On page 75 of this document, the playbook for the current flurry of vaccination laws is succinctly and shockingly laid out.

Increasing Vaccination Rates: Improving the nation’s vaccination rates to help prevent disease, mitigate suffering, and reduce healthcare costs. The Trust for America’s Health and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation recommend a number of actions that can be taken to increase vaccination rates for children, teens and adults around the country, including: 

  • Minimize vaccine exemptions: States should enact and enable universal childhood vaccinations except where immunization is medically contraindicated. Non-medical vaccine exemptions, including personal belief exemptions, enable higher rates of exemptions in those states that allow them [implying religious and philosophical exemptions should not be allowed.]

  • Increasing public education campaigns about the safety and effectiveness of vaccines: Federal, state, and local health officials, in partnership with medical providers and community organizations, should conduct assertive campaigns about the importance of vaccines particularly stressing and demonstrating the safety and efficacy of immunizations. Targeted outreach should be made to high-risk groups and to racial and ethnic minority populations where the misperceptions about vaccines are particularly high. [hence, the 2015 measles media blitz in California that resulted in the passage of SB277, eliminating vaccine exemptions] 

  • Expand alternate delivery sites: The National Vaccine Advisory Committee (NVAC) recommended including expansion of vaccination services offered by pharmacists and other community immunization providers, vaccination at the workplace, and increased vaccination by providers who care for pregnant women. [schools have vaccinated children without parental consent.]

  • Bolstering immunization registries and tracking: States should take steps to integrate immunization registries and EHRs to help track when patients receive vaccines, improve information sharing across providers, remind providers to routinely provide recommended vaccinations, remind patients of vaccinations and address gaps.
  • Requiring universal immunization of all healthcare personnel for all ACIP recommended vaccinations:  According to a joint policy statement by the Association of Professional in Infection control and Epidemiology (APIC) and Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America (SHEA), mandatory immunization programs are the most effective way to increase healthcare personnel vaccination rates. As such, medical societies support healthcare employee policies that require healthcare workers to demonstrate immunity or document receipt of ACIP-recommended vaccinations as a condition of employment, unpaid service [volunteers will be vaccinated], or receipt of professional privileges [doctors vaccinated to work].

This information is sobering and infuriating. I strongly advise clicking on the links above and reading the supporting documentation to understand the full effect and full intent of what is happened in America regarding vaccine mandates for all – especially adults.

The objectives in Healthy People 2020 represent the massive expansion of a nanny-state government, intent on taking over every area of a person’s life and eliminating health choices. The legislative moves we are fighting were set in motion many years ago.

  1. Alan
    I love the site you linked to. I am wondering if anyone is looking at the possible correlation between vaccines and gender dysphoria. Seems the transgender population is growing, maybe a way to decrease population?

  2. Support for these programs make it sound like it will be beneficial to all and they care about our health. They are not paying our health bills, therefore I do not see how they believe I have to get their new vaccines. They have immunity from foul effects, all responsibilities will fall on me. If they are not supporting all my medical needs they have no say. It’s my body and this stuff scares the hell out of me!

  3. Hi Doctor, most of us know how bad vaccines can be, but do you have an antidote or something like herbal remedies that cure or help maybe slow down effects of corona vaccines? Many beautiful herbs in the world maybe we can fight it if forced on us. Thank you.

    • This shot isn’t like a “flu shot” or “chickenpox vaccine.” You can’t detox from it, like you can remove aluminum or mercury. The mRNA codes for proteins that can then be incorporated – permanently – into your genetics and cells. The Moderna shot has an mRNA that codes for flagellin, an UNAPPROVED adjuvant that is manufactured INSIDE your body. It has never been tested in humans, is NOT approved for use and cannot be “detoxed” –> I wish there was a solution or a better answer. I”m afraid that once you’ve been “marked” you are marked for life. I’ve long said, “one you vaccinate, you can’t unvaccinated” – this appears to be 100% true with this shot (that really isn’t a vaccine).

      • Hi Dr.

        I would like to know what you think about the Novavax and Russian covid vaccines. They are supposedly not mRNA’s and don’t contain fetal cells. So are they really safe? If I had the choice, I would not be taking these vaccines, but I’m an international student in the US and soon I’m sure we won’t have any choice. We have no voice and no support. Also I will need to go back home at some point and I’ll need to take the shot to board on a plane.

        Thanks for your input

  4. I question the statement that this outlines vaccine mandates ‘for all’. The only true mandates I’m reading about are for children and healthcare workers. How is this ‘for all’?

    • Because 2015 the Adult Immunization Plan was released. There have been more and more talks about vaccines for employment and entry into the country if you have traveled. Vaccines are already MANDATED for healthcare workers; teachers are targeted next, and then anyone who works in the public….eh, that’s about everyone unless you have a home-based business.


    We are at WAR! Or, at least, it appears that way! This apparent war is both undeclared and unacknowledged, and is literally unbeknownst to half of the players on the field of battle. It has been on going for at least 60 or more years, AND is still being fought! It is a “hidden” war, and thus the first word in the title of this article “SILENT”.
    It is a battle for total control over the entire planet that we live on.

    This SILENT WAR involves only two sides — USELESS EATERS and THE NEW WORLD ORDER.

    For those who are unfamiliar with the term: USELESS EATER, that is the term that was given to the common man – the everyday, average guy and gal – by the Super Elite, most of whom support the New World Order Agenda! So this is THEIR TERM for the common man, not mine.

    Depending upon which side you are on, that will be the indicator of how much information you have about this battle. If you are on the side of the people – the “USELESS EATERS” – you will know nothing, or at least as close to nothing as possible about this war, or that it is even being waged, you will, in effect, BE OBLIVIOUS!
