Merck’s new ad campaign: A lifetime of vaccine bondage

Julie Gerberding, Head of Merck Vaccines, Bill Gates advisor, former head of CDC

MB Comment: Merck has launched a new vaccine ad campaign which has a perfect name: Lifetime of Vaccines. From their corporate perspective, this name has bigtime Ka-ching cachet. A lifetime of vaccines equals a lifelong revenue stream for Merck vaccines which (after all) is their corporate strategy: Turn people into submissive pincushions for their toxic products and then deny responsibility when the adverse reactions inevitably arrive. Ka-ching Ka-ching. And if Merck vaccines like Gardasil kill their recipients – tough luck, Merck will find another lifelong customer. Current Gardasil body count reported to the FDA Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System is 115 dead.

This campaign has obviously been endorsed by Julie Gerberding, the former head of the CDC who is now head of Merck Vaccines. Gerberding is also on the Scientific Board of Bill Gates’ Grand Challenges in Public Health foundation. Small world, isn’t it? Gerberding steps from recommending and enforcing vaccine mandates at the CDC to selling and touting vaccines at Merck and cashing in with Gates’ global vaccine domination empire.

Notice how Merck’s new Lifetime of Vaccines campaign is nested in the natural sounding nonprofit HealthyWomen, which on closer examination turns out to look like a drug company front group. Along with Merck’s overt partnership, HealthyWomen’s advisory board includes vaccine manufacturers Novartis Pharmaceuticals, Pfizer and Sanofi-Aventis. HealthyWomen also boasts of its partnership with vaccine manufacturer CSL Biotherapies entitled “Flu-Free and a Mom-to-Be” campaign to educate pregnant women about the benefits to both themselves and their unborn child by having the flu shot while pregnant.

If you want to submit to a lifetime of vaccines, that is certainly your decision to make. Everyone else might want to read the adverse reaction section on the package insert of Merck vaccine products like Gardasil to see what a lifetime of vaccine misery and bondage can follow the injection of Merck’s vaccines.  (deaths in original clinical clinical study were 40 [p 8], see also deaths and neurological damage reported in postmarketing experience [p 11]).

Merck takes on maternal health

Medical Marketing & Media    November 29, 2012

Merck’s investment in motherhood [has launched] “Lifetime of Vaccines,” a pilot program in Cincinnati, Chicago and Sacramento that focuses on educating women about the importance of vaccines for their children, their partners and themselves.

The “Lifetime” campaign, which launched earlier this month, is a partnership between Merck and the nonprofit HealthyWomen, and is being promoted in the three target cities using email, TV, radio and print. The effort also includes an informational section housed on WebMD that bears the Merck logo and walks readers through the history of vaccines, as well as providing risk and benefit information, and links to CDC vaccination schedules.

HealthyWomen’s CEO Elizabeth Battaglino told MM&M her readership includes women in their mid-20s through the over-70s. The pilot program, which will run between six and 12 months, may be expanded.

Merck’s global communications lead for vaccines, Imraan Munshi, said the HealthyWomen-Merck campaign is also a unique messaging opportunity. “Typically when you have these kinds of unbranded campaigns, they focus on a specific disease area. [In this case] we have the opportunity to talk about vaccines across diseases, across ages,” he told MM&M.

Although the print materials tout vaccine’s protective benefits, the site also includes questions parents can ask their doctors, such as “I’m an adult, which vaccines are recommended for me,” and “which vaccines are recommended for my pre-teen or teen.”
