Across the country, physicians are giving vaccines without any apparent understanding of pediatric immunology. In fact, they insanely give vaccines to premature infants – even extremely low birth weight (ELBW) infants – according to the vaccine schedule for full term babies. These mindless and algorithm-driven injections are given with no consideration about the impact the shots will have on the immediate and long-term health of these tiny tots.
ELBW is defined as a birth weight of less than 1000 g (2 lb, 3 oz) and usually born at 27 weeks’ gestational age or younger. Infants born with a birth weight less than 1500 g (3.3 lb.) are defined as very low birth weight (VLBW) infants.
A while back, Michelle Rowton RN, a founding board member of Nurses Against Mandatory Vaccines, spoke out about the cavalier attitude of physicians who are administering vaccines to these tiny tots. Her interview went viral, one month before a new study published in JAMA spelled out the damage caused by vaccines given to ELBW babies.
The August 2015 JAMA study referenced by Michelle in her InfoWars interview confirmed that vaccinations given to ELBW infants lead to serious adverse events, including fever. In children under three months of age, fever necessitates expensive, painful, and invasive procedures, including blood, nasal and urine cultures, and often a spinal tap (picture). Infants are then given antibiotics for several days, until the culture results are known. This leads to disruption of the gut-microbiome and can lead to life-long serious health problems, including autoimmune diseases. Current and ongoing research provides firm evidence that the gut microbiome plays a primary role in the development of ALL physiological systems and metabolic processes in babies and children. If doctors and nurses took the time to consider their actions, it should be obvious that injecting these vile solutions – which contain damaging aluminum, chemicals, and foreign proteins – will have negative impact the baby’s growth, development, and general health, especially ELBW and VLBW infants.
JAMA investigators indeed concluded that within the first three days after being vaccinated, infants were indeed subjected to a higher incidence of sepsis workups. Vaccinated infants also had an increased need for respiratory support which often included intubation and being placed on a ventilator.
The information, while startling, isn’t new.
Vaccines and Brain hemorrhages
The above-mentioned JAMA study was not the first to describe the devastating effects of vaccines on low birth weight, premature infants. The following study is worth reading – be prepared to have your jaw dropped.
In 2007, a study in Pediatrics included 239 preterm infants who were (on average) 71 days old when they were enrolled in the study. An infant received one of the five following vaccines – DTaP, Hib, IPV [polio], hepatitis B vaccine, or Prevnar 7, – OR the infant was given all five vaccines at the same time. In addition, all infants received acetaminophen (Tyelenol) at 10mg/kg before the vaccinations and every 6 hours within the first 48 hours after immunization. C-reactive protein (CRP) levels and cardiorespiratory reactions were monitored for 3 days after the shots. CRP is a blood test is used to identify inflammation. The findings included:
- 39 infants had cardiorespiratory events. Of those:
- 24 children who were asymptomatic before the shots had episodes of apnea (stopped breathing), bradycardia (slowed breathing), or oxygen desaturation (lowered oxygen levels) after the injections.
- 15 infants who had episodes of apnea, bradycardia, or low oxygen saturation prior to immunization had an increased number of those episodes after the shots.
- 26 of the 39 infants needed to be given oxygen after the vaccines.
- 13 needed to be placed on a ventilator.
- 95% of the adverse events occurred within 48 hours of the vaccinations.
- 46 infants had intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH). An IVH is bleeding in the brain; in other words, the babies had a stroke)
- Infants given multiple vaccines at the same time were almost 4 times more likely to have cardiorespiratory events and 16 times more likely to have an abnormally elevated CRP.
- 103 infants had a CRP greater than 1.6mg/dL, considered to be abnormally high.
- Abnormally high CRP values and multiple vaccines were more likely to cause a grade 3 or 4 IVH.
- Grades 1 and 2 hemorrhages involve a small amount of bleeding with no or only mild long-term problems.
- Grades 3 and 4 hemorrhages involve severe bleeding, with blood clots and leakage into the brain tissue, leading to lifelong disabilities and often hydrocephalus (increased fluid in the brain).
Why in the world are pediatricians concerned that ELBW infants are going to be exposed to pertussis, hepatitis B and polio in the NICU, necessitating any of these vaccines? This is criminal and should be treated as a medical assult. Maybe some bright, brave lawyer will read this article and take it on.
Vaccines and diabetes
An elevated CRP in infancy may lead to significant health problems later in life. For example, children with an elevated CRP level are more likely to develop insulin-dependent, type 1 diabetes. The antibodies from vaccines may stimulate the production of pancreas autoantibodies, which attack and destroy the pancreas. Or, it is possible that the vaccine antibodies themselves may attack the pancreas through a process known as molecular mimicry.
A specific pro-inflammatory cytokine, interleukin-6 (IL-6), is elevated by CRP production. Prolonged high levels of IL-6 can weaken the immune system, increase the susceptibility of liver injury and raise the risk for cardiovascular disease. Some studies have even found a link between elevated IL-6 and an increased risk for cancer.
It has been published that CRP goes up in response to the hepatitis B vaccine, given at birth, and also when given to full term infants. In fact, a study done nearly 20 years ago – in 1998 – concluded a clear temporal association between elevations of CRP and IL-6 after the HiB, Hepatitis B and IPV (polio) vaccines.
How much more “evidence” does the healthcare profession need to stop vaccination? We need to put a moratorium on causing insidious, life-long disasters in our children. Why are doctors and parents so horrified of a fever, a cough, a rash and some diarrhea?
Nurses Stand in the Gap
When the above InfoWars link was first posted on my Facebook page, within less than 24 hours, more than 345,000 had been reached, with more than 3,300 shares. Here are a few of the hundreds of comments:
“The medical community has put themselves in a position of needing to deny, as much as possible, the harmful effects of vaccines, regardless of the blatantly obvious health complications they cause. The liability, at this point, is tremendous (given all the harm they cause), so it’s in the industry’s best interest to deny, deny, deny.”
“This is truly disgusting. I recently left a job in medical records at a facility with a large, very busy NICU. I just could not believe that nearly every infant who went into the NICU, was still vaccinated before they left the hospital, even if they were premies. It’s so sad that parents just go along and don’t ask questions. How the hell is it “safe” to give a baby, who almost didn’t survive, vaccines so early!? Infuriating! And then when things don’t go so well, blame them problems on something else.”
“This cohort study found an increase in adverse events after immunization of extremely low-birth-weight infants in the neonatal intensive care unit. The study found a problem, but it doesn’t stop them from injecting crap into these extra tiny beings…..This may be the dumbest thing I’ve ever read.”
Why are physicians so under-educated and apparently oblivious to these risks? Why do the follow a protocol established in 1982, when the American Academy of Pediatrics recommended routine vaccination of premature or low birth weight infants 2 months after birth, even though they may have been born 2 months early?
Why do they bully parents, with threats of dismissal from the practice or reporting them to CPS, for wanting to protect their children from this chemical onslaught? Why are legislators practicing medicine without a license, demanding that children be vaccinated when clearly the procedure causes harm? Why do parents blindly just “do what the doctor says”?
It’s difficult to believe that physicians don’t care – but it is not hard to believe that they cover each other’s back for the sake of the status quo. Sadly, physicians are more interested in maintaining a protocol than protecting the little lives they hold in their hands from what is coming through that needle.
