Fewer Same-Day Vaccines—at an Older Age, Says Study

Fewer Same-Day Vaccines—at an Older Age, Says Study
The Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons recently reported a link between the number of simultaneous vaccinations a child receives and the risk of serious injury or death. The report cites a 2012 study that looked at raw data from the government Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).
The authors looked at VAERS data on infants from 1990 through 2010—about 38,000 reports in total. The study found that infants receiving multiple vaccines concurrently, as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), are significantly more likely to be hospitalized or die, compared with infants who received fewer vaccinations in one visit. Age was also a factor: adverse effects were more likely to lead to hospitalization or death in younger infants.
The CDC recommends a combination of up to eight vaccines during a single visit to the pediatrician. Medical literature makes it clear that this is not for the child. It is because parents cannot be trusted to bring their children back again and again to receive the full battery of vaccines. The government’s approach to vaccine administration, with one shot piled on top of another on top of another, has never been tested for safety in clinical trials.
The author points out that skeptics of using VAERS data to draw conclusions about the safety of vaccines claim that the database doesn’t prove conclusively that the adverse events reported in VAERS are caused by vaccination. But if that’s the case, why does the CDC regularly twist VAERS data to justify its recommendations?
For example, almost 9% of the adverse reactions reported for the live attenuated influenza vaccine, for example, are classified as “serious” (fatalities, cardiovascular events, neurological debilities, etc), yet CDC researchers concluded from these same adverse event reports that the results were “reassuring.” Reassuring to whom?
Speaking of the flu vaccine, a new study once again raises the question of whether mercury (still used as a flu shot preservative) increases the risk of autism.

Study: Altered urinary porphyrins and mercury exposure as biomarkers for autism severity in Egyptian children with autism spectrum disorder
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a complex neurodevelopmental disorder that affects social, communication, and behavioral development. Recent evidence supported but also questioned the hypothetical role of compounds containing mercury (Hg) as contributors to the development of ASD. Specific alterations in the urinary excretion of porphyrin-containing ring catabolites have been associated with exposure to Hg in ASD patients. In the present study, the level of urinary porphyrins, as biomarkers of Hg toxicity in children with ASD, was evaluated, and its correlation with severity of the autistic behavior further explored. A total of 100 children was enrolled in the present study. They were classified into three groups: children with ASD (40), healthy controls (40), and healthy siblings of the ASD children (20). Children with ASD were diagnosed using DSM-IV-TR, ADI-R, and CARS tests. Urinary porphyrins were evaluated within the three groups using high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), after plasma evaluation of mercury (Hg) and lead (Pb) in the same groups. Results showed that children with ASD had significantly higher levels of Hg, Pb, and the porphyrins pentacarboxyporphyrin, coproporphyrin, precoproporphyrin, uroporphyrins, and hexacarboxyporphyrin compared to healthy controls and healthy siblings of the ASD children. However, there was no significant statistical difference in the level of heptacarboxyporphyrin among the three groups, while a significant positive correlation between the levels of coproporphyrin and precoproporphyrin and autism severity was observed. Mothers of ASD children showed a higher percentage of dental amalgam restorations compared to the mothers of healthy controls suggesting that high Hg levels in children with ASD may relate to the increased exposure to Hg from maternal dental amalgam during pregnancy and lactation. The results showed that the ASD children in the present study had increased blood Hg and Pb levels compared with healthy control children indicating that disordered porphyrin metabolism might interfere with the pathology associated with the autistic neurologic phenotype. The present study indicates that coproporphyrin and precoproporhyrin may be utilized as possible biomarkers for heavy metal exposure and autism severity in children with ASD.

Report: Relative trends in hospitalizations and mortality among infants by the number of vaccine doses and age, based on the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), 1990–2010
In this study, the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) database, 1990–2010, was investigated; cases that specified either hospitalization or death were identified among 38,801 reports of infants. Based on the types of vaccines reported, the actual number of vaccine doses administered, from 1 to 8, was summed for each case. Linear regression analysis of hospitalization rates as a function of (a) the number of reported vaccine doses and (b) patient age yielded a linear relationship with r 2 = 0.91 and r 2 = 0.95, respectively. The hospitalization rate increased linearly from 11.0% (107 of 969) for 2 doses to 23.5% (661 of 2817) for 8 doses and decreased linearly from 20.1% (154 of 765) for children aged <0.1 year to 10.7% (86 of 801) for children aged 0.9 year. The rate ratio (RR) of the mortality rate for 5–8 vaccine doses to 1–4 vaccine doses is 1.5 (95% confidence interval (CI), 1.4–1.7), indicating a statistically significant increase from 3.6% (95% CI, 3.2–3.9%) deaths associated with 1–4 vaccine doses to 5.5% (95% CI, 5.2–5.7%) associated with 5–8 vaccine doses. The male-to-female mortality RR was 1.4 (95% CI, 1.3–1.5). Our findings show a positive correlation between the number of vaccine doses administered and the percentage of hospitalizations and deaths. Since vaccines are given to millions of infants annually, it is imperative that health authorities have scientific data from synergistic toxicity studies on all combinations of vaccines that infants might receive. Finding ways to increase vaccine safety should be the highest priority.

Study: Combining Childhood Vaccinesat One Visit Is Not Safe
Although health authorities including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) claim that childhood vaccines are safe and recommend combining multiple vaccines during one visit, a review of data from the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) shows a dose-dependent association between the number of vaccines administered simultaneously and the likelihood of hospitalization or death for an adverse reaction. Additionally, younger age at the time of the adverse reaction is associated with a higher risk of hospitalization or death
