CDC’s Own Data: Vaccine-Infant Death Link

Sayer Ji
Activist Post

The CDC’s own research has found that the long denied vaccine-SIDS link is real.

If you believe the official pronouncements of top governmental health agencies like the CDC and FDA, all the vaccines in the present day schedule are a priori safe and effective.

Not only are you told that they can’t harm you, but that not taking them can kill you.

Parents are under even more pressure. They are told that refraining from vaccinating their infants or children will greatly increase their risk of dying or being disabled. Worse, they are increasingly labeled as ‘crazy’ and ‘irresponsible’ anti-vaccine zealots who are putting the lives of others in danger.

But what happens when the actual evidence from the scientific and clinical literature produced by these very agencies contradicts their own vaccine policies?

This is exactly what has happened with the publication of a new study in the Journal of Pediatrics titled ,”Adverse Events following Haemophilus influenzae Type b Vaccines in the Vaccine Adverse Event ReportingSystem, 1990-2013,” wherein CDC and FDA researchers identify 749 deaths linked to the administration of the Hib vaccine, 51% of which were sudden infant death linked to the administration of Hib vaccine.

The CDC has boldly denied that there is any evidence supporting a causal link between vaccines and infant death, despite the fact that their own webpage on the topic acknowledges that “From 2 to 4 months old, babies begin their primary course of vaccinations. This is also the peak age for sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).” Written off as coincidence, the CDC suggests that stomach sleeping is the primary modifiable risk factor.

Because SIDS is the 3rd leading cause of death in infants, and because the U.S. has one of the highest infant mortality rates in the developed world, one would think that more progress would have been made toward understanding its causes. Perhaps, as explored in this past article, the signal of harm is being ignored. Neglect and suppression of available data has recently been exposed with the confession of a top CDC vaccine scientist who was compelled to covered up data revealing an autism-MMR link in African-American boys.

In the new study, the CDC and FDA researchers themselves acknowledge “the scarcity” of postlicensure safety data on HiB vaccines in today’s vaccination schedule. They evaluated reports involving the currently licensed Hib vaccines received from January 1, 1990, through December 1, 2013 available on the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).

Presently, the CDC recommends 4 doses of the HiB vaccine at the following ages: 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 12 months through 15 months.

The HiB vaccine is described on the CDC website as “very safe” and “effective” at preventing HiB disease, which it states can be deadly. They list “most common side effects as usually mild and last 2 or 3 days,” including “redness, swelling, and warmth where the child got the shot” and “fever”. Nowhere is there listed death or disability as a possible side effect.

In stark contrast to these statements the study uncovered the following highly concerning results:

VAERS received 29,747 reports after Hib vaccines; 5179 (17%) were serious, including 896 reports of deaths. Median age was 6 months (range 0-10.22 months). Sudden infant death syndrome was the stated cause of death in 384 (51%) of 749 death reports with autopsy/death certificate records. The most common nondeath serious AE categories were neurologic (80; 37%), other noninfectious (46; 22%) (comprising mainly constitutional signs and symptoms); and gastrointestinal (39; 18%) conditions. No new safety concerns were identified after clinical review of reports of AEs that exceeded the data mining statistical threshold.

Consider also that VAERS is a passive surveillance system, which suffers from profound underreporting. According to the VAERS site’s own disclaimer:

“Underreporting” is one of the main limitations of passive surveillance systems, including VAERS. The term, underreporting refers to the fact that VAERS receives reports for only a small fraction of actual adverse events. The degree of underreporting varies widely. As an example, a great many of the millions of vaccinations administered each year by injection cause soreness, but relatively few of these episodes lead to a VAERS report.

According to Barbara Loe Fisher, founder of the National Vaccination Information Center, underreporting may result in overlooking 99% or higher of all vaccine associated injuries:

Former FDA Commissioner David Kessler estimated in a 1993 article in the Journal of the American Medical Association that fewer than 1 percent of all doctors report injuries and deaths following the administration of prescription drugs. This estimate may be even lower for vaccines. In one survey that our organization conducted in New York in 1994, only 1 doctor in 40 reported to VAERS.

Considering the influence of underreporting, these deaths represent only the tip of the iceberg of vaccine-induced infant morbidity and mortality caused by HiB vaccines. The study also mentioned an earlier analysis which found that infant death is the most common cause of death reported by all vaccine linked reports on VAERS, “accounting for almost one-half of all deaths reported.”

Obviously, this is an appalling study. The death of even 1 child for a potentially ineffective medical intervention designed to prevent a rarely fatal illness is a tragedy. Nor can any single vaccine be proven to have prevented any single case of disease because the clinical outcome (end point) is a non-event. This is not the case, however, for vaccine side effects which can be linked directly to the vaccination event with plausible scientific mechanisms.

What is perhaps most astounding is the researcher’s conclusion:

Review of VAERS reports did not identify any new or unexpected safety concerns for Hib vaccines.

This callous disregard for the evidence — evidence that clearly shows the CDC misrepresents the safety of the HiB vaccine — speaks to the blind investment in vaccine policy decisions over human wellbeing. Millions of parents have listened to the CDC and FDA and believed that these vaccines not only work but are safe. Informed consent requires those undergoing a quasi-mandatory medical intervention like vaccination to know the true risks associated with it. Failing to do so is clearly a violation of this medical ethical protection against being abused, and in some cases disabled and even killed.

    I worked for the Canadian SIDS Foundation from 1999 through 2003 and we knew then the link between SIDS and vaccines (in fact, we had access to the medical studies that corroborated this in our files). We were strictly forbidden to tell parents who called and asked about this. However, when I received frantic calls from parents, I just told them that we see the most SIDS cases between 2 and 6 months, that Japan had the lowest SIDS rate in the world and they only started giving vaccines to children over the age of 2 years old (I also directed them to medical studies on the internet to show their doctors, which could have got me fired at the least, but I have a conscience).

    While working at the Foundation in the early 2000s, I was in contact with a mom whose baby died of SIDS at a daycare in Saskatchewan. The mother was well aware of the reduce the risk literature (back to sleep, no crib bumpers or blankets in the crib, keep the baby warm not hot and ensure that there is no second-hand smoke around the baby) and had told the daycare staff – who put the baby on the stomach to sleep and covered her with blankets anyway. The daycare admitted negligence but the daycare’s insurance company sued the mother for damaging the reputation of the daycare (their client) and won the case, so the mother had double the suffering – she had to pay for her baby’s funeral AND mortgage her home to pay for the lawsuit and loss. Though this was long before Facebook, SIDS families everywhere supported the family, the daycare was closed and the insurance company (Wawanessa) lost a lot of business (including mine).

    My point being – families who have vaccinated their babies who have subsequently died of SIDS need to do their own research and stand up for the health of their babies despite what the doctors insist. I’ve seen the BMJ research and it’s still out there. Be aware of your parental rights of refusal and have the research to back up your decisions – some daycares demand that babies in their care have the DPT vaccines before accepting them. Waiting until 6 months and older – when a baby’s immune system is stronger – to give the first vaccines would reduce the risk and save lives.

    • Thank you for your courage. Personally, I have no children. A medical condition prevents me from being a father. That does not mean I lack the love for children needed to be a daddy. Ergo, I am glad to see others genuinely have compassion, courage for human children. Thank you, again.

      I appreciate you relaying this story but there is NO reason to EVER vaccinate children (or adults, for that matter). Vaccines are based on fraudulent, junk “science” and have never prevented a single case of disease. They are a fraud.

  • LocalHero

    Whatever any government agency tells you, do the exact opposite and you’ll be fine.

    • Much agree with you on this, only minor disagreement to suggest everyone use common sense, do their own looking stuff up. It is nice to see some professionals coming forward to say as much too. Better than those shoving ‘flu’ shots on folks. Why would I choose to inject an illness I’ve not had since 1978? *shaking head* Weird sadistic freak nurses anyway. *chuckles*

  • John C Carleton

    The nine most terrifying words in the english language, We’re from the government, we’re here to help you. There is ample evidence that vaccines are being used to make tons of money for the firms producing them, as well as to cull the herd. Take the annual flue shot. It is absolutely worthless for it’s stated purpose. They guess at the strains of flues that will be around in a years time. Add to that the fact that the flue virus mutates all the time. In theory, the vaccine works by producing antibodies which lock on to the virus which keeps it from reproducing, it works like a key and lock. If your key to your front door has even one ridge or valley removed it will not unlock the door. With the high rate of mutation of the flue virus, this means antibodies from a year back just will not work. With the shot however, you do get some heavy metals injected into your body.

      Oh, stop. That line was introduced to further demonize socialism. You know, the programs that bring you the fire department, paramedics to your door in an emergency, roads you can drive on to the hospital, and public schools. The problem is out-of-control pharmaceutical companies, who, thanks to the gutting of the FDA, are now allowed to do their own studies on their own drugs, and present them to the FDA, is that our corrupt government is staffing the FDA with people who worked in big pharma, and will return to big pharma after their stint. I am not completely anti-vaccinations, because I am well aware of the scourge that smallpox was in the world, only decades ago. Innoculation, and then vaccination, wiped out that disease. But when I was a kid, I got 11 vaccinations from birth to 18, and kids now get 36 by the time they’re 8, and the research has not proved that this is safe. Requiring a medical procedure on children without proving that it is safe, so that big pharma can make more money, is criminal. If our government were not bought and paid for, those studies would be mandatory, and openly available. As for HIb, the vaccine was only available in the 1990s, and I don’t recall the terrible pandemics which would justify six shots for infants. I’d like to see a study on the rate of SIDS in this country, compared to the increased vaccination schedule in infants. The problem is that government is the only thing that can rein in corporations. It is the only thing that has the power. This is why the oligarchs have created a system whereby people can only get elected with their money, so that they own the government. But Teddy Roosevelt and then FDR proved that to rein in criminal big business, good government is necessary. Demonizing socialism and good governance is a ploy of the very rich.

        God save use from public schooled ignorant Americans. The roads were built with the peoples money, tax on each gallon of gas, the same roads that the government minions now want to sell to privet companies so they can charge the people who paid for them to drive on them. Had a “public servant” beat up my 21 year old daughter because she objected to him using vulgar language on her. The government covered his butt, as they had been doing and continued to do until he raped a women in the back seat of his cop car while on duty. The government covered his butt one more time, charging him with official oppression instead of rape, he walked out of jail in one years time. It is not the pharmaceutical companies which say your kid can not go to school unless poisoned with a slew of toxic vaccines, it is the government. It is not the pharmaceutical companies that threaten and in some cases do take children away from parents who do not want to ruin their children’s health, it is the government. If any government minion show up and use those nine words, you had better grab your weapon, run to the nearest corner, plant your ass firmly into the corner, (making sure your wallet is pressed firmly against the wall.

        My reply seems to be hung in never land so will repost here. God save us from public schooled ignorant sheeple. The roads are built with the money drivers pay on each gallon of gas they buy. The same roads that the government minions now want to sell to privet companies who then charge the people who’s money paid for the roads to drive on their own roads. Public school is the code name for government indoctrination centers where most people are forced by the government to deliver their children up or be kidnapped and held in jail. My 21 year old daughter was beat up by a government minion because she objected to him using vulgar words as he cussed her out. The government covered his butt as they had been doing and continued to do until he raped a women in the back seat of his cop car while he was on duty. Then they covered his butt again and only charged him with official oppression so that he walked out of jail one year later. It is not the drug companies that tell you you can not send your kids to school unless you ruin their health with toxic vaccines, that is the government. It is not the drug companies who threaten to and do in some cases steal peoples children if they do not want to poison their children, that is the government. It was not the drug companies which used me for a lab rat, gave me an experimental vaccine which ruined my health, (Desert Storm Illness), it was the government. They are still lying about that as they did about Agent Orange for thirty years. Yes, if some government minions show up and use those nine words, you had best grab your weapon, run not walk to the nearest corner, plant your butt firmly in that corner making sure your wallet is behind you.

    The amount of fear mongering currently going on currently with measles is both obscene and maddening. I just completed a 23 hour marathon debate with a pro-vaxxer and of course no matter how many facts I presented linking MMR with ASD she denied it. Vaccines are like religion to some people.
