WHO Caught Falsely Stating Pentavalent Vaccine Was Safe After It Was Discontinued In Some Countries Due To Deaths In Children
Unfortunately, the WHO continues to mislead countries around the world on the safety and effectiveness of vaccination. New reports from India are a stark reminder of the WHO's malicious agenda to deceive populations in an effort to promote mass vaccination campaigns. A leading Indian journal of medical ethics has charged the World Health Organization (WHO) with promoting a vaccine whose use has been discontinued in some countries following adverse reactions and deaths in children.
In a hard hitting editorial, the Indian Journal of Medical Ethics (IJME) has accused the WHO of promoting Pentavalent vaccine "by stating falsely that no adverse event following immunization (AEFI) has ever been reported with the vaccine." The journal says this is contrary to facts.
The IJME editorial by Dr. Jacob Puliyel, head of pediatrics at St Stephens Hospital in New Delhi, is based on his detailed investigation into the deaths of children in Bhutan, Sri Lanka, India and Vietnam following use of Pentavalent vaccine. This vaccine combines the Diphtheria, Pertussis, Tetanus or DPT vaccine -- long used in national vaccination programs -- with Hepatitis-B and H influenza-b or Hib vaccine.
WHO Warned of Adverse Reactions and Deaths Every Year Since 2008
In 2010, a report by a group, including paediatricians, professors, health activists and a former Indian health secretary, cautioned against the introduction of the five-in-one vaccine.
"Our article describes how the World Health Organisation (WHO), in an elaborate cover-up, changed its own criteria for classifying adverse effects to say the vaccine was not responsible for the deaths in Sri Lanka," Jacob Puliyel stated.
The authors point out that the pentavalent vaccine was withdrawn in Sri Lanka in April 2008 after 25 serious adverse reactions that included five deaths and Bhutan stopped its use within two months of introduction in July 2009 after eight deaths. A WHO committee that investigated the deaths reported that the deaths were not due to the vaccine but could find no alternate cause for the deaths.
Bhutan had previously resisted pressure from WHO to restart vaccination but Sri Lanka reintroduced the vaccine in 2010 after a WHO expert panel, which investigated the events, declared that the vaccine was 'unlikely' to have caused the deaths. Reintroduction of the vaccine was followed by a further four deaths and Bhutan is not using this vaccine any longer, the journal says.
The IJME editorial said that on 4 May 2013 the Ministry of Health of Vietnam suspended Quinvaxem - the Pentavalent combination used in that country -- after 12 deaths and 9 other non-fatal serious adverse events. According to local news reports, all the babies who died were in good health prior to vaccination and had serious trouble breathing before dying shortly afterwards.
The WHO, which investigated the incident, said the deaths were not vaccine-related and claimed that "Quinvaxem was prequalified by WHO and no fatal adverse event following vaccination has ever been associated with this vaccine."
The editorial points out that WHO had not disputed the death of 12 children soon after vaccination and "therefore it is patently wrong and misleading for it to conclude that no fatal AEFI have ever been associated with the vaccine."
This combination vaccine is not licensed for use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration nor is it used in other developed countries, the editorial says. But the WHO recommends this Pentavalent vaccine in developing countries, by piggy backing the Hepatitis-B and Hib vaccines on the well accepted DPT to increase uptake of Hepatitis B and Hib according to a write up on the GAVI website.
GAVI and The Polio Vaccine Push
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is the Worlds most powerful charity. It is funded to the tune of $34.6 in addition to $30 from the investments from Warren Buffet. In 2000, the foundation founded the Global Fund for Childrens Vaccines (GAVI). It is an international collaboration among the Rockefeller foundation, Governments, the World Bank, WHO, International Association of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers, Vaccine Makers and UNICEF.
GAVI is also funded by governments in Australia, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Republic of Korea, Russia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom, United States, the European Commission, as well as private and corporate partners such as Absolute Return for Kids, Anglo American plc., The Childrens Investment Fund Foundation, Comic Relief, Dutch Postcode Lottery, His Highness Sheikh Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, JP Morgan, la Caixa Foundation, LDS Charities and Vodafone.
A government inquiry was launched in 2011 has found that polio vaccines for infants funded by the Global Alliance for Vaccination and Immunisation are causing deaths and disabilities in regional countries including Pakistan. The report on The Express Tribune also suggested suspending the mass polio campaign, including the administration of pentavalent vaccines until an inquiry finds these vaccines safe for children. There is now evidence that polio paralysis has also been a very common yet discreetly hidden side effect associated with polio vaccines.
"The charade about polio eradication and the great savings it will bring has persisted to date. It is a paradox that while the director general of WHO, Margret Chan, and Bill Gates are trying to muster support for polio eradication it has been known to the scientific community, for over 10 years, that eradication of polio is impossible. This is because in 2002 scientists had synthesised a chemical called poliovirus in a test-tube with the empirical formula C332,652H492,388N98,245O131,196P7, 501S2,340. It has been demonstrated that by positioning the atoms in sequence, a particle can emerge with all the properties required for its proliferation and survival in nature. [Emphasis added.]
"...the test-tube synthesis of poliovirus has wiped out any possibility of eradicating poliovirus in the future. Poliovirus cannot be declared extinct because the sequence of its genome is known and modern biotechnology allows it to be resurrected at any time in vitro. Man can thus never let down his guard against poliovirus. Indeed the 18-year-old global eradication campaign for polioviruses will have to be continued in some format forever. The long promised infinite monetary benefits from ceasing to vaccinate against poliovirus will never be achieved. The attraction that eradication has for policy makers will vanish once this truth is widely known."
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is apparently out of touch with what the scientific community has known for 10 years, as its websites page on polio indicates. The pentavalent now serves as an additional platform of ignorance relating to the link between the vaccine and serious reactions or even death.
Serious Adverse Reactions and Death
Serious adverse reactions and deaths have now been reported with Pentavalent vaccine produced by other manufacturers and in a number of countries, the journal says. Bhutan. Sri Lanka and Pakistan have stopped using the vaccine, "following unexplained deaths soon after immunization."
In Pakistan too -- where one child died within half an hour of receiving the vaccine and two others died within 12 to 14 hours -- the vaccine was not blamed, but no alternate cause of death was found for any of the cases, the IJME article says.
In India, according to IJME, 21 have so far died in a limited experiment with the vaccine introduced in 2011 in the vaccination program of Tamil Nadu and Kerala. India had announced plans to roll out the vaccine to other states after monitoring its impact in these two states.
"In all the deaths being discussed in this editorial, the common factor has been that the children had received Pentavalent vaccine and in most of them, this was followed by high fever, excessive crying and in some, there were convulsions before the child died," the journal says expressing surprise at how the WHO "failed to see the unifying connection between the deaths" in the different countries.
The majority of deaths after Pentavalent vaccine have followed the first dose of the vaccine. This pattern of the adverse events taking place predominantly after the first dose, also suggests that these are not random events, the editorial says.
On February 21, 2013, a one month-old baby girl died after receiving 5 vaccinations. Baby Ayushi Gupta died at the Maltibai Hospital, Thane, West Mumbai in India just hours after receiving her vaccinations for Hepatitis B, DPT (diptheria, pertussis and tetanus) and oral pulse polio drops.
Vaccine Composition and Mortality Rate
A study published in the Human and Experimental Toxicology journal has found a direct statistical correlation between higher vaccine doses and infant mortality rates. The analysis calculated the total number of vaccine doses received by children but did not differentiate between the substances, or quantities of those sub-stances, in each dose. Common vaccine substances include antigens (attenuated viruses, bacteria, toxoids), preservatives (thimerosal, benzethonium chloride,2-phenoxyethanol, phenol), adjuvants (aluminum salts), additives (ammonium sulfate, glycerin, sodium borate, polysorbate 80, hydrochloric acid, sodium hydroxide, potassium chloride), stabilizers (fetal bovine serum, monosodium glutamate, human serumal bumin, porcine gelatin), antibiotics (neomycin, strep-tomycin, polymyxin B), and inactivating chemicals (formalin, glutaraldehyde, polyoxyethylene). For the purposes of this study, all vaccine doses were equally weighted.
Using linear regression, the immunization schedules of these 34 nations were examined and a correlation coefficient of 0.70 was found between IMRs and the number of vaccine doses routinely given to infants. When nations were grouped into five different vaccine dose ranges, 98.3% of the total variance in IMR was explained by the unweighted linear regression model. These findings demonstrate a counter-intuitive relationship: nations that require more vaccine doses tend to have higher infant mortality rate.
How Vaccination Works in India
India does not have a well-defined vaccine policy. It has a National Immunisation Programme, under which it conducts an Expanded Programme of Immunisation (EPI). Twenty-five million children are born every year in India. That is a vast vaccine market, far bigger than many countries put together. Only about 53 percent of the children born in India are vaccinated. This means about 11 million children in India become part of the targeted group for vaccination.
Also, only about 40 percent of the children are born in medical institutions. Here, there is a process laid down for vaccination. A whopping 60 percent of annual Indian births, or 15 million, are in homes or anywhere else. Most of them, in the villages and backwaters of India, are not likely to get vaccinated. Eighty-five percent of all vaccination in India is done by the government. The private sector accounts for the other 15 percent.
The journal has also questioned the very rationale for introducing Hib vaccination in India where the incidence of Hib disease is very low. The editorial estimates that vaccinating 25 million babies could at best save 350 children from Hib meningitis and Hib pneumonia but "3125 children will die from vaccine adverse effects."
The journal warns that when countries like Bhutan and Vietnam have taken action, it is imperative that India acts to protect the lives of its children. "To trivialize all these deaths as coincidental is hiding the real picture."
