- From 1989 to 1991, Kaiser Permanente
along with the L.A. County Department of Health and the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention (CDC), injected over 700 "mostly minority"
babies with unlicensed experimental vaccines with fraudulently-obtained
consent from the parents.
- To date, it is believed that most of
the families affected by this secret experiment are not aware that their
child was used as a human guinea pig or, if aware, are not alerted to the
long-term health risks of this particular vaccination.
- One of several vaccines used in the experiment,
Edmonston-Zagreb, high-titer, had already achieved a notorious reputation
overseas for triggering the death of numerous babies in closely controlled
trials in the Third World. In particular, use of the vaccine had been
closely associated with an increased death rate among infant girls in Senegal,
Guinea Bissau and Haiti" before their second birthday. At least one
baby in the L.A. County experiment died within this same two year window.
Reports of other immune and neurological problems are associated with
the Kaiser Permanente victims.
- When the final story is told, this could
likely be one of the most scandalous affairs in the sordid history of human
experimentation to rival or exceed that of the Nazis, the Tuskegee syphilis
study or the DOE radiation exposure experiments.
- If your child received a vaccine injection
at one of three L.A. County Kaiser Permanente facilities between January
1990 and December 1991, you may be needed for a class action claim against
Kaiser Permanente Foundation. The three hospitals at the center of the
experiment were Kaiser East Los Angeles, Kaiser West Los Angeles (Cadillac)
and Kaiser Inglewood.
- You may have received one or two letters
from Kaiser since this story hit the mainstream media in June 1996. It
reflected that your child was enrolled in a "vaccine schedule change"
program which began enrollment in 1989. Those letters did not adequately
inform parents of the long-term risks from the vaccine.
- A class action case is being instigated
within L.A. County. There are approximately 1200 families whose children
were involved. The vast majority of those families know little or nothing
of this experiment and of long-term consequences which could seriously
impair their child's health and welfare.
- If your family or that of a friend or
relative was directly affected by this measles vaccine experiment please

(LACCARCE) at (562)602-2432 as soon as possible. Additionally, you may
