At least 70 infants across five developing nations have died shortly after receiving a World Health Organization- (WHO) and GAVI-backed pentavalent 5-in-1 vaccine that combines the Diphtheria, Pertussis, Tetanus (or DPT) shot with the Hepatitis-B and H influenza-b (or Hib) vaccines.
According to a recently published editorial in the Indian Journal of Medical Ethics by St. Stephens Hospital Head Pediatrician Dr. Jacob Puliyel, thousands more babies are expected to perish for what will be a negligible impact in the supposed campaign to stop disease.
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.
The IJME editorial says that On 4 May 2013 the Ministry of Health of Viet Nam 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.
This vaccine — that IS NOT approved for use even by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (which seems to approve almost anything, let’s be honest) — is specifically being pushed only in developing countries. Infant deaths have been repeatedly linked to the pentavalent vaccine’s use. Bhutan, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Vietnam have already banned the vaccine; Bhutan had banned it once after four babies died, but apparently reinstated it at the WHO’s urging, then banned it again after four more babies died.
Even though all the evidence points to the pentavalent vaccine being dangerous at the very least, the Bill Gates-founded GAVI (formerly the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization) plans to shoot up even more kids with it:
