Remarks by President Biden at a Campaign Reception

Private ResidenceWashington, D.C. THE PRESIDENT:  Well, thank you very much.  Look, you’re all standing.  I’ll try to make this as short and to the point as I can.  Folks, I never quite thought of it the way my hostess just explained what she thinks about why people do what they do.  You know, I — […]

Physicians for Informed Consent States, ‘Chicken Pox (Varicella) Vaccine Has Not Been Proven Safer Than Chicken Pox’

Physicians for Informed Consent States, ‘Chicken Pox (Varicella) Vaccine Has Not Been Proven Safer Than Chicken Pox’

Free educational materials help parents make better-informed vaccination decisions

Physicians for Informed Consent States, ‘Chicken Pox (Varicella) Vaccine Has Not Been Proven Safer Than Chicken Pox’
Chicken Pox Infection vs. Varicella Vaccine

Death and Permanent Injury Risk Comparison for Children in the U.S.

Physicians for Informed Consent (PIC) has introduced two new educational documents, “Varicella (Chicken Pox): What Parents Need to Know” and “Varicella Vaccine: Is It Safer Than Chicken Pox?” The educational materials include key scientific data on the risks of chicken pox as well as the risks of the varicella vaccine, assisting parents in making a more informed risk-benefit calculation for vaccination.

“Now, more than ever, parents are motivated to learn more about the risks of childhood infections and their respective vaccines — and they want to know the numbers,” said Dr. Shira Miller, founder and president of Physicians for Informed Consent. "Although many parents remember from experience that chicken pox is generally benign, as the chicken pox vaccine is required for childcare and school attendance in all states, and with no religious or personal belief exemption in five states, including California, we’re pleased to now make available for free a Disease Information Statement and Vaccine Risk Statement for chicken pox."

Important facts from the Varicella (Chicken Pox) Disease Information Statement (DIS) are as follows:

  • More than 96% of new varicella infections are benign (1) and not reported to public health departments.
  • Fatal cases of varicella are rare in the United States. Before the introduction of the varicella vaccination program, one in 40,000 or 0.003% of varicella cases were fatal.
  • Because varicella resolves on its own in almost all cases, usually only rest and hydration are necessary.
  • Immune globulin is available to treat immunocompromised patients who are exposed to chicken pox, such as those on chemotherapy.

Key facts from the Varicella (Chicken Pox) Vaccine Risk Statement (VRS) are as follows:

  • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states, “It is not known how long a vaccinated person is protected against varicella.”
  • The Institute of Medicine has not ruled out the possibility that varicella vaccination can lead to stroke as well as several neurological and autoimmune disorders, including encephalopathy, cerebellar ataxia, transverse myelitis, Guillain-Barré syndrome, small fiber neuropathy, arthropathy, and thrombocytopenia.
  • A study published in The Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal shows the varicella vaccine may cause permanent injury 44 times more often than fatal varicella.
  • The chicken pox (varicella) vaccine has not been proven safer than chicken pox.

To safeguard children’s health, parents need access to balanced educational information on infectious diseases and vaccines. PIC makes scientific data freely available through its education program, a growing collection of concise, reader-friendly educational materials that support parents, physicians, and policymakers in calculating the risk-benefit ratio of vaccination.

Bella Napoli, a Wood Fired Pizza Concept, is Opening in Schaumburg

The team behind Moretti's Ristorante & Pizzeria restaurants, Ala Carte Entertainment, is opening a new woodfired pizza concept in the Northwest Suburbs. Bella Napoli takes inspiration from the kitchens of Naples, crafting artisan Neapolitan pizzas and many other unique chefs' creations, paired with an innovative cocktailing experience and entertainment.

Bella Napoli, a wood-fired pizza concept and Italian restaurant, is opening in Schaumburg, Illinois.

Bella Napoli embodies the essence of its name, representing "the beauty of Naples," without leaving Schaumburg. The culinary team takes pride in crafting artisan wood-fired Neapolitan-style pizzas in our deluxe large red pizza oven. The wood-fired oven infuses each pizza with smoky, lightly charred goodness handcrafted with a custom Neapolitan dough recipe and only the freshest, highest-quality ingredients like fresh mozzarella, San Marzano tomatoes, and the finest meats.

Step into Bella Napoli, and you'll be welcomed into a newly constructed, decorated space that exudes warmth and stylish comfort. Commanding the restaurant’s interior is a long, gorgeous marble-topped bar, which can comfortably seat dozens of guests. Led by beverage director John Holder, Bella Napoli will be serving a unique craft cocktail menu and a wine list carefully curated to pair with the cuisine perfectly. Sitting at the bar, guests have a clear view of all the action as pizzas move in and out of the big oven, the heart of the Bella Napoli culinary magic.

Nearby, a spacious dining room awaits, seating over 100 guests. The room is tastefully decorated with elegant stonework, a fireplace, and rustic details to create a comfortable, stylish atmosphere. Lively music and all the action in the open kitchen create a vibrant energy that makes any dining or cocktailing experience fun and memorable.

But the Bella Napoli experience doesn't end indoors. There is an all-new wraparound patio that’s partially covered for plenty of three seasons of al fresco dining, such as one would find in the gardens and neighborhoods of Italy. In every detail, Bella Napoli strives to offer not just a meal but a complete Neapolitan experience right here in Schaumburg. Bella Napoli will be open every day beginning Friday, Oct. 27, 2023.
