Multiple Vaccinations and the Enigma of Vaccine Injury
1. Benefits and Current Status of Vaccines
2. Growing Safety Concerns
- Allergic rhinitis (Odds Ratio: 30.1; 95% Confidence Interval: 4.1, 219.3);
- Eczema (OR: 2.9; 95% CI: 1.4, 6.1);
- A middle ear infection (OR: 3.8; 95% CI: 2.1, 6.6);
- Pneumonia (OR: 5.9; 95% CI: 1.8, 19.7);
- An NDD (OR: 3.7; 95% CI: 1.7, 7.9).
- In a study based on 38,801 reports to VAERS, a linear relationship was observed between the number of vaccine doses administered at one time and the rate of hospitalization and death in infants after receiving vaccinations. The hospitalization rate for vaccine injury increased from 11% for two doses to 23.5% for eight doses (r2 = 0.91). The case-fatality rate increased significantly from 3.6% for 1–4 doses to 5.4% for those receiving 5–8 doses .
- The USA has the highest Infant Mortality Rate (IMR) among 33 other nations; it also has the highest number of required doses of vaccines for infants among these nations. An examination of the immunization schedules of these 34 countries showed a strong correlation between IMRs and the number of routinely administered doses of vaccines (r2 = 0.70, p < 0.0001) .
- In a study comparing health outcomes among vaccinated and unvaccinated US children born between 2005 and 2015, based on medical records from three medical practices, vaccination before age 1 was significantly associated with developmental delays (OR: 2.18; 95% CI: 1.47–3.24), asthma (OR: 4.49), and ear infections (OR: 2.13) .
- A study examined the association between the proportion of children receiving the recommended vaccines by age 2 in each state and the prevalence of autism or speech disorders . After controlling for family income and ethnicity, the proportion of children receiving the recommended vaccinations was directly related to the prevalence of autism and of speech disorders. A 1% increase in the vaccination rate in each state was associated with an additional 680 children having either outcome.
- A survey of over 4000 British Gulf War male veterans reported that “vaccination against biological warfare and multiple routine vaccinations were associated with GWI in the Gulf War cohort.” .
- Among 1548 Kansas GW veterans and controls (non-GW), the rate of GWI among vaccinated GW veterans was 11 times higher than among non-GW veterans who did not receive vaccines. Vaccinated non-GW veterans had significantly higher rates of chronic pain, neurological, and gastrointestinal problems, and nearly four-fold higher odds of GWI than non-GW veterans who did not receive vaccines. It was concluded that vaccines “were a contributing factor to the excess morbidity among Gulf War veterans” .
- A follow-up, medical record-based study of British GW veterans 6–8 years after deployment reported that receipt of multiple vaccinations was associated with five-fold increased odds of GWI .
- A study of nearly 8000 personnel with the UK forces in the Gulf War reported that the number of vaccinations received was directly associated with higher scores for skin and musculoskeletal complaints .
- A study of outcomes among 1456 Australian GW veterans and a control group of veterans who were not deployed (n = 1588) found that the number of symptoms reported in the past month by GW veterans was associated with vaccinations in a dose-dependent manner. Those with the highest number of symptoms had at least 10 vaccinations .
