Vaccine News: AAP Opposes Ban on Thimerosal, While Study Finds More Vaccines Equate to Increased Hospitalization and Death

Posted by: The Liberty Beacon™ Staff
Published March 8, 2013, filed under HEALTH

Vaccine News: AAP Opposes Ban on Thimerosal, While Study Finds More Vaccines  Vaccine_with_mercury-150x150 According
to public health doctors and a medical trade association representing
U.S. pediatricians, poor children in developing countries should
continue to get vaccines containing the mercury preservative,
thimerosal, because providing these children with mercury-free vaccines
“would devastate public health efforts in developing countries,” the New York Times reports.1

The defense for keeping thimerosal in vaccines was published in a
medical journal and commentaries authored by Drs. Walter Orenstein,
Louis Cooper, Samuel Katz et al was widely promoted in the media by Dr.
Paul Offit and others supporting the “pro-mercury” stance officially
endorsed by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP).

The article and commentaries, published in the journal Pediatrics,2
were written in response to consumer calls for thimerosal removal to be
included in a United Nations Environmental Program’s (UNEP) global
treaty to reduce mercury pollution and protect human health. The binding
treaty calls for the global reduction or banning of certain
mercury-containing products and exposures.

Dental amalgams, which contain mercury, are included in the treaty,
but thimerosal was removed from the product list during the beginning of
the treaty development process. Advocacy groups like SAFEMINDS and
Co-Med have been working to add thimerosal removal from vaccines back in
to the treaty.

Interestingly, the AAP has been inaccurately publicizing the idea
that a thimerosal ban is, in fact, part of the treaty in order to have
an excuse to globally defend the safety of mercury preservatives in

According to U.S. News Health:3

“The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) joins the World Health
Organization (WHO) in urging the U.N. to drop the proposal from an
international treaty seeking to cut down on mercury exposures in a
variety of ways. Both the WHO and AAP say a thimerosal ban could keep
children in poor nations from getting needed vaccines.”

Thimerosal—Is it Really Worth the Risk?

(TMS), which is used in vaccines as a preservative, is 49.6 percent
ethylmercury (eHg). The compound was removed from most pediatric
vaccines in 2001, but it’s still used in some multi-dose vials, and is
present in many seasonal flu vaccines. (Pregnant women and children are
generally advised to request thimerosal-free flu vaccines.)

It is already an established fact that exposure to mercury can cause
immune, sensory, neurological, motor, and behavioral disorders. But many
doctors and health officials are still refusing to admit that
ethylmercury may cause harm, stating that there’s no evidence for such
fears, and that ethylmercury is harmless compared to methylmercury—the
form typically found in contaminated fish.

Dr. Paul Offit, chief of infectious diseases at Children’s Hospital
of Philadelphia, claims that the U.S. government’s 1999 directive to
drug companies to remove thimerosal from pediatric vaccines was not
based on scientific evidence of harm, but rather was simply done as a
precautionary measure until researchers could learn more about
thimerosal health effects. He goes so far as to call the removal of
thimerosal in the US “a mistake,” and one that should not be repeated

According to U.S. News Health:

“Numerous international studies since have uncovered no evidence
of harm—including no link between thimerosal and autism, which had been
a concern. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says
there is ‘no convincing evidence of harm caused by the low doses of
thimerosal in vaccines.

…Developing nations rely on vaccines containing thimerosal,
Orenstein said. The preservative is used in vials that contain more than
one dose of a vaccine, to prevent contamination, which can happen when a
syringe needle is inserted into the vial. Rich countries such as the
United States can get around the need for thimerosal by using
single-dose vials. But for poor countries, multi-dose vials make
vaccination programs more feasible, Orenstein explained.’”

Barbara Loe Fisher, co-founder and president of the National Vaccine
Information Center (NVIC), strongly disagrees with the AAP’s stance, and
so do I. She points out that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have not rescinded their 1999
directive to the pharmaceutical industry to take thimerosal out of
childhood vaccines.

“If unused vials of thimerosal-containing vaccines must be
disposed of as hazardous waste because of the mercury content, then why
is the American Academy of Pediatrics strongly advocating that
thimerosal-containing vaccines continue to be injected into children’s
she asks.4

SAFEMINDS has been working to urge the UN treaty group to include
thimerosal in the treaty so that mercury containing vaccines will be
phased out around the world. The Coalition for Mercury-Free Drugs has
also weighed in by issuing an open letter to UNEP.5
The group disputes the assertion that scientific studies has proven
thimerosal safe, and urge the Program to include thimerosal in the
global ban. They also point out that including thimerosal in vaccines
given to children in poor developing nations, but not in developed
countries, is “an injustice that characterizes this most iatrogenic of
toxic exposures.”

“In an era when cost-effective, much less toxic,
non-bioaccumulative, and more effective alternatives are available and
in-use as in-process sanitizers and preservatives, there is no
conscionable justification for the continuing presence of thimerosal in
human pharmaceuticals,”
the letter states.

More Vaccines = Worse Health Outcomes, Groundbreaking Study Finds

While concerns about thimerosal are valid, it’s by no means the only
vaccine ingredient or factor that can make childhood vaccinations a
risky proposition. Even more important is the issue of use of too many
vaccines in general, and the routine administration of multiple vaccines
simultaneously during one doctor’s visit.

Vaccine safety advocates have long called for studies evaluating the
health outcomes of vaccinated versus unvaccinated children. One study
addressing this issue recently has been published. The NVIC donated
$2,500 to make the full study available to the public free of charge.
The study, 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), 1990–20106
found a positive correlation between the number of vaccine doses
administered and the percentage of hospitalizations and infant deaths:

  • Hospitalization rate increased linearly from 11.0 percent for 2 doses to 23.5 percent for 8 doses
  • Hospitalization rate decreased linearly from 20.1 percent for
    children aged <0.1 year to 10.7 percent for children aged 0.9 year
  • Mortality rate for 1-4 vaccine doses was 3.6 percent
  • Mortality rate for 5-8 vaccine doses rose to 5.5 percent
  • A disproportionate number of hospitalizations were due to the
    administration of the at-birth dose of the hepatitis B vaccination (73
    percent of VAERS cases reported the receipt of hepatitis B vaccine, and
    30 percent of these required hospitalization)

According to the authors:7

“In 1990, infants received a total of 15 vaccine doses prior to
their first year of life: 3 DPT injections (9 vaccine doses), 3 polio,
and 3 Hib vaccines—5 vaccine doses at 2, 4, and 6 months of age. By
2007, the CDC recommended 26 vaccine doses for infants: 3 DTaP, 3 polio,
3 Hib, 3 hepatitis B, 3 pneumococcal, 3 rotavirus, and 2 influenza
vaccines. While each childhood vaccine has individually undergone
clinical trials to assess safety, studies have not been conducted to
determine the safety (or efficacy) of combining vaccines during a single
physician visit as recommended by CDC guidelines.

For example, 2-, 4-, and 6-month-old infants are expected to
receive vaccines for polio, hepatitis B, diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis,
rotavirus, Haemophilus influenzae type B, and pneumococcal, all during a
single well-baby visit—even though this combination of 8 vaccine doses
was never tested in clinical trials.

…Administering six, seven, or eight vaccine doses to an infant
during a single physician visit may certainly be more convenient for
parents—rather than making additional trips to the doctor’s office—but
evidence of a positive association between infant adverse reactions and
the number of vaccine doses administered confirms that vaccine safety
must remain the highest priority.

… Since vaccines are administered to millions of infants every
year, it is imperative that health authorities have scientific data from
synergistic toxicity studies on all combinations of vaccines that
infants are likely to receive; universal vaccine recommendations must be
supported by such studies.”

Findings in Girl Who Died After Receiving Gardasil Vaccine Now Released

In related vaccine news, a lab scientist, who discovered HPV DNA
fragments in the blood of a teenage girl who died after receiving the
Gardasil vaccine, has published a case report in the peer reviewed
journal Advances in Bioscience and Biotechnology.8
The otherwise healthy girl died in her sleep six months after receiving
her third and final dose of the HPV vaccine. A full autopsy revealed no
cause of death.

Sin Hang Lee with the Milford Molecular Laboratory in Connecticut
confirmed the presence of HPV-16 L1 gene DNA in the girl’s postmortem
blood and spleen tissue. These DNA fragments are also found in the
vaccine. The fragments were protected from degradation by binding firmly
to the particulate aluminum adjuvant used in the vaccine.

“The significance of these HPV DNA fragments of a vaccine origin
found in post-mortem materials is not clear and warrants further
he writes.

However, Lee suggests the presence of vaccine-associated HPV DNA
fragments might offer a plausible explanation for the high
immunogenicity of Gardasil, meaning the ability of the vaccine to
provoke an exaggerated immune response. He points out that the rate of
anaphylaxis in girls receiving Gardasil is far higher than
normal—reportedly five to 20 times higher than any other school-based
vaccination program. Other health problems associated with Gardasil
vaccine include immune-based inflammatory neurodegenerative disorders,
also indicative that something is causing the immune system to overreact
in a detrimental way. Between June 1, 2006 and December 31, 2008, there
were 12,424 reported adverse events following Gardasil vaccination,
including 32 deaths. The girls, who were on average 18 years old, died
within 2 to 405 days after their last Gardasil injection.

“No investigative work was attempted to confirm or exclude any
link of a death to Gardasil vaccination although there was
disproportional reporting of syncope
[fainting] among the Gardasil recipients,” he notes.

Since then, many more have died.

  • Between May 2009 and September 2010, 16 deaths after Gardasil
    vaccination were reported. For that timeframe, there were also 789
    reports of “serious” Gardasil adverse reactions, including 213 cases of
    permanent disability and 25 diagnosed cases of Guillain-Barre Syndrome
  • Between September 1, 2010 and September 15, 2011, another 26 deaths were reported following HPV vaccination

Under Attack, NVIC Helps Americans Stand Up and Speak Out

There can be no doubt that we are in urgent need of a serious vaccine
safety review in the US. Quality science is simply not being done. And
very few vaccine recommendations, which prop up state vaccine mandates,
stand on firm scientific ground.

I urge you to make 2013 the year that you engage and get actively
involved in the monumentally important task of defending YOUR right to
know and freedom to choose which vaccines you and your child will use. Supporting the NVIC is one way you can help.

In a recent update, Barbara Loe Fisher writes:9

“In 2013, the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) enters
our fourth decade of preventing vaccine injuries and deaths through
public education and defending the legal right to make voluntary
vaccination decisions in America. Each year during the past 30, NVIC has
become more successful in achieving our mission. With that success has
come more fierce opposition by politically powerful medical trade
associations and special interest groups allied with drug companies
doing everything they can to censor truthful vaccine information and
strip vaccine informed consent protections from public health laws.

At a recent federal advisory committee meeting, we learned that
public opinion surveys reveal that NVIC ranks as one of the most trusted
sources of vaccine information among Americans, who choose to
vaccinate, and also among those, who do not. This means that our small
charity and the well-referenced information on our website at NVIC.org
is helping to inform the health decisions made by millions of Americans.
This is a huge accomplishment and it would not have been possible
without 30 years of loyal support by tens of thousands of parents,
grandparents, doctors, nurses and students coming from every single
state and every walk of life, who offer donations to NVIC every year.

No Liability for Drug Companies & Doctors

A lot of people still don’t realize that Congress and the U.S.
Supreme Court have completely shielded drug companies and doctors in
America from product liability and malpractice lawsuits when vaccines
injure or kill someone. But pharmaceutical corporations and medical
trade groups are not satisfied with total liability protection and no
accountability. They also want the power to legally force 310 million
Americans to buy and use every single vaccine that Big Pharma produces
and public health doctors endorse – no exceptions.

NVIC Attacked for Defending Informed Consent Rights

NVIC and our uncompromising defense of informed consent to
medical risk taking, including vaccine risk taking, has stood in their
way for 30 years. And that is one reason why we are witnessing vicious
assaults on NVIC and courageous Americans in every state, who are trying
to protect their right to know and freedom to choose how they and their
children will stay well. At this time last year, NVIC was the subject
of a smear campaign led by American Academy of Pediatrics officials, who
put pressure on Delta Airlines in a failed attempt to remove an
NVIC-sponsored flu prevention video from inflight health programming. A
month later, another online disinformation campaign about NVIC was
launched by forced vaccination proponents to get a 15-second
NVIC-sponsored digital ad taken down from Times Square. It failed and
our vaccine risk awareness message was broadcast throughout the holiday
season and on New Year’s Eve.

Big Pharma & Doctor Groups Lobby to Eliminate Vaccine Exemptions

And this year, drug company and medical trade association
lobbyists tried to persuade legislators in Vermont and California to
remove philosophical and personal belief exemptions to vaccination from
public health laws. But we fought back in both states,
using our free online NVIC Advocacy Portal to empower citizens to
quickly organize and electronically stay connected to their legislators
and up-to-date on breaking news.

Next year, NVIC will face more censorship and well-orchestrated,
well-funded assaults on vaccine exemptions in multiple states. Our
parental, civil and human rights in America are in grave jeopardy. All
you have to do is read the heartbreaking descriptions posted on the Cry
forVaccine Freedom Wall at NVIC.org to understand how bad it is.

Health Care Workers Being Fired

Children are being denied medical care if parents ask
pediatricians questions about vaccines or object to a baby being
injected with eight to ten different vaccines on one day. Health care
workers are being threatened and fired if they don’t get an annual flu
shot. This is what one nurse posted on the Vaccine Freedom Wall:

I have taken the flu shot in the past and had body aches for
weeks afterward. I started educating myself on vaccines and haven’t
taken a flu shot in years. I am a nurse and love my job. I take every
precaution in the interest of my patients, utilize hand washing, etc.
found out at a meeting yesterday that our organization’s policy has
changed and that I will have to take the flu shot or be terminated from
I am at a crossroads and am actually thinking
about leaving a job that I love because I feel so strongly about my
personal freedom.’

No Vaccinations? No Prescription Medications.

Americans needing public assistance are being coerced into
getting many vaccines against their will or be cut off from prescription
medications. This is what one American suffering financial hardship had
to say:

During this past recession, I had to seek medical care from
the county public health program. I had high blood pressure, probably
due to stress.
My last and final visit to that place was to
refill the [blood pressure] prescription, which was denied until I
allowed myself to be injected with three vaccines: tetanus, flu and
At first I refused but finally consented
because I was afraid of what would happen if I suddenly stopped taking
the medicine. I was sick for nine days after receiving those shots.
Being forced to accept vaccines under duress as an adult is a horrible
feeling, a sense of loss of freedom. Using coercion by withholding
medication is just plain evil.’

No Vaccinations? No Medicare Benefits

The elderly are being bullied, too. A couple on Medicare described their frightening experience:

My wife and I are in our mid-sixties and on
Medicare. We saw our primary care physician today for a routine ‘well
care’ visit and were shocked to hear what our physician for over 26
years had to tell us! The doctor made it clear that he was referring to
‘new’ [federal health care program] mandates that,
if we did not voluntarily receive the pneumonia vaccine, we would be terminated from his practice! My wife and I have never felt so violated.’

Doctors Pushing More Vaccines on Vaccine Injured Children

Even parents of vaccine injured children are being pressured to
give their children more vaccines because many liability-free doctors
now feel comfortable taking a risky, one-size-fits-all approach to
vaccination. Mothers are fighting back and are warning others that
doctors are behaving badly and that vaccine exemptions must be protected
at all costs. One mother said:

My daughter is a proven vaccine injury of the pertussis vaccine. I urge people to please help to defend the personal belief exemption.
My child almost died from vaccines and there are doctors, even most
recently a neurologist whom we visited in California, who suggested that
we continue the very vaccine that almost took her life.
Our daughter suffered an encephalopathy, rare seizures, global developmental delays, speech delays.

She is eight years old and crawls. She can’t walk or ambulate
alone. She has multiple chemical disorder and it causes her to have
seizures. She is unable to attend public schools and we no longer have
health insurance and no job, due to what this vaccine damage has taken
from our family. If you think doctors are going to sign the [personal
belief] exemption, you are wrong. They won’t
.’ This
Mom knows first-hand that vaccine risks are greater for some than others
and that, at our peril, do we give up our freedom to make personalized
vaccine decisions for ourselves and our children.

Help NVIC Help Americans Stand Up & Speak Out

There is no time to waste. Now, more than ever, NVIC needs the
financial resources to educate more Americans about vaccination and
health and help citizens protect vaccine exemptions in the states.
Please visit NVIC.org and offer a donation
– big or small – to help NVIC continue to defend parental, civil and
human rights in America. What you choose to do today WILL determine what
happens to you, your children, your grandchildren and everyone you love
