"... Delivery hospitals play a key role in the national strategy to prevent hepatitis B transmission and should have policies and procedures in place to ensure that hepatitis B vaccination is administered to all newborns before they leave the hospital, they emphasize."And by ALL they mean babies who weight 4 and a half pounds and are "medically stable".
So they remain bullish on their one size fits all vaccine schedule, even for babies who have no medical history yet, even for a disease that the vast majority of them are not at risk for, even for a vaccine which many adult health professionals (who are required to get it because they come into contact with blood products of high risk individuals) report multiple health problems after receiving.
Note the rational given for this. Not the good of the individual infant, but as a key in their "national strategy to prevent hepatitis B transmission".
So your baby is drafted into the CDC's war on Hepatitis B, whether or not you want him to be, and whether or not it is in his best interest.
Mine was, and after his first Hep B shot he was left with three months of fevers and crying, and two years of bowel problems (until we put him on GFCF). And even though all this was reported to his doctors, they continued giving him the Hep B shot (contraindicated for any one who has reacted to it before) until he regressed into autism at 18 months following the FOURTH time they gave him the shot.
CONTRAINDICATIONSYes there is yeast in the vaccine. Also some combination of:
Hypersensitivity to any component of the vaccine, including yeast, is a contraindication (see DESCRIPTION). This vaccine is contraindicated in patients with previous hypersensitivity to any hepatitis B-containing vaccine.
Aluminum Hydroxide, Phosphate Buffers, Thimerosal, Aluminum Hydroxyphosphate Sulfate, Amino Acids, Dextrose, Formaldehyde or Formalin, Mineral Salts, Potassium Aluminum Sulfate, Soy Peptone, Aluminum Phosphate, Amino Acids, Inorganic Salts, MRC-5 Cellular Protein, Neomycin Sulfate, 2-Phenoxyethanol, and Polysorbate 20.Depending on what brand of the shot.
The Vaccine Injury Compensation Fund even pays for "anaphylactic shock and death" as a result of getting a Hep B vaccine".
CDC knows full well that some children will get very sick and a few will die from this shot, yet they want ALL children to have it with in 48 hours of birth.
Known side effects:
ADVERSE REACTIONSNote that in their safety study they only follow children for 4 DAYS to see if they will have adverse reactions to the shot!
ENGERIX-B is generally well tolerated. As with any vaccine, however, it is possible that expanded commercial use of the vaccine could reveal rare adverse reactions.
Ten double-blind studies involving 2,252 subjects showed no significant difference in the frequency or severity of adverse experiences between ENGERIX-B and plasma-derived vaccines. In 36 clinical studies, a total of 13,495 doses of ENGERIX-B were administered to 5,071 healthy adults and children who were initially seronegative for hepatitis B markers, and healthy neonates. All subjects were monitored for 4 days post-administration. Frequency of adverse experiences tended to decrease with successive doses of ENGERIX-B. Using a symptom checklist,† the most frequently reported adverse reactions were injection site soreness (22%) and fatigue† (14%). Other reactions are listed below.
Incidence 1% to 10% of Injections:
Local Reactions at Injection Site: Induration; erythema; swelling.
Body as a Whole: Fever (>37.5°C).
Nervous System: Headache†; dizziness.†
†Parent or guardian completed forms for children and neonates. Neonatal checklist did not include headache, fatigue, or dizziness.
Incidence <1% of Injections:
Local Reactions at Injection Site: Pain; pruritus; ecchymosis.
Body as a Whole: Sweating; malaise; chills; weakness; flushing; tingling.
Cardiovascular System: Hypotension.
Respiratory System: Influenza-like symptoms; upper respiratory tract illnesses.
Gastrointestinal System: Nausea; anorexia; abdominal pain/cramps; vomiting; constipation; diarrhea.
Lymphatic System: Lymphadenopathy.
Musculoskeletal System: Pain/stiffness in arm, shoulder, or neck; arthralgia; myalgia; back pain.
Skin and Appendages: Rash; urticaria; petechiae; pruritus; erythema.
Nervous System: Somnolence; insomnia; irritability; agitation.
Postmarketing Reports: Additional adverse experiences have been reported with the commercial use of ENGERIX-B. Those listed below are to serve as alerting information to physicians. 8
Hypersensitivity: Anaphylaxis; erythema multiforme including Stevens-Johnson syndrome; angioedema; arthritis. An apparent hypersensitivity syndrome (serum sickness–like) of delayed onset has been reported days to weeks after vaccination, including: arthralgia/arthritis (usually transient), fever, and dermatologic reactions such as urticaria, erythema multiforme, ecchymoses, and erythema nodosum (see CONTRAINDICATIONS).
Cardiovascular System: Tachycardia/palpitations.
Respiratory System: Bronchospasm including asthma-like symptoms.
Gastrointestinal System: Abnormal liver function tests; dyspepsia.
Nervous System: Migraine; syncope; paresis; neuropathy including hypoesthesia, paresthesia, Guillain-Barré syndrome and Bell’s palsy, transverse myelitis; optic neuritis; multiple sclerosis; seizures.
Skin and Appendages: Eczema; purpura; herpes zoster; erythema nodosum; alopecia.
Special Senses: Conjunctivitis; keratitis; visual disturbances; vertigo; tinnitus; earache.
"Carcinogenesis, Mutagenesis, Impairment of Fertility: ENGERIX-B has not been evaluated for carcinogenic or mutagenic potential, or for impairment of fertility."Does it cause cancer, alter genes, make people infertile? They can't tell you, they've never checked to find out.
But they want EVERYONE to have it the day they are born.
How in the hell are then not in jail for this?
