A new report by the National Coalition of Organized Women (NCOW), states, that as many as 3,587 cases, may of either miscarried or had a stillbirth after receiving the H1N1 vaccine.
In an exceptionally strong and well executed report, written on the
Child Health Safety Website
entitled 'Flu Vaccine Caused 3,587 US Miscarriages from H1N1 Vaccine,' they say :-
"The corrected estimate for the total number of 2009-A-H1N1-flu-shot-associated miscarriages and stillbirths during the 2009/10-flu season is 1,588 (95% goodness-of-fit confidence interval, 946 to 3587). That is, the lower and upper range-probability of miscarriage and stillbirths due to the H1N1 vaccine was as low as 946 and as high as 3,587.
Eileen Dannemann, Director of NCOW, presented the findings for the second time to Dr. Marie McCormick, chair of the Vaccine Risk and Assessment Working Group, during the Advisory Commission on Childhood Vaccines (ACCV) meeting, Sept 3, 2010. Just prior to Ms. Dannemann´s presentation Dr. McCormick, had pronounced that there were absolutely no H1N1 vaccine-related adverse events in pregnant women in 2009/10, directly contradicting the evidence publicly available."
Despite these alarmingly high figures being made public, which have been fully backed up with reports taken from the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS), the Government still strongly recommends that this potentially dangerous vaccine, reported to have killed thousands of developing fetuses, to pregnant women of the USA.
On 22nd September 2010
had this to say :-
"NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Despite landing in the hospital more often if they catch the flu, no more than a quarter of pregnant women in the U.S. get vaccinated against it.
That's according to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, which has issued a recommendation urging all pregnant women to get the flu shot.
While the recommendation itself isn't new, the statement, published in the journal Obstetrics and Gynecology, adds evidence on the safety and effectiveness of the vaccine, said Dr. William M. Callaghan of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta.
He said the CDC and several medical associations back the statement, which notes that the shot not only protects the woman, but also her baby.
Flu vaccines aren't approved by the Food and Drug Administration for infants younger than six months of age, but babies can get the protective antibodies naturally through breast milk if their mother got the vaccine."
Note the sentence "Flu vaccines aren't approved by the Food and Drug Administration for infants younger than six months of age" By recommending this vaccine to pregnant women this is exactly what the FDA, are doing, they are actively promoting a vaccine for use in babies of less than 6 months old.
The Bloomberg Business week agrees with the Governments recommendations saying:-
"Based on expert medical opinion, we urge all pregnant women, and women who expect to become pregnant, to get their influenza immunization because the flu poses a serious risk of illness and death during pregnancy," Dr. Jennifer L. Howse, president of the March of Dimes, said in a news release from the organization.
"The flu vaccine has been shown to be safe and effective," she noted. "As an added bonus, during pregnancy, mothers pass on their immunity, protecting babies until they are old enough to receive their own vaccinations."
However, Elileen Dannemann is not alone in her concerns relating to the new H1N1 vaccine. The citizens of India have been very reluctant to have this vaccine. On September 5th I wrote the article
The public of India boycott the H1N1 vaccine because they fear side effects
I stated that
had said that the Indian public were rejecting the H1N1 vaccine through the fear of side effects. In their article 'India Rejects H1N1 shots after vaccines kill children' by Paul Joseph Watkins, Watkins reported that the rejections of the vaccine en masse, followed reports that the measles vaccine killed four children in the village of Lucknow.
The H1N1 vaccine has already been rejected by Finland and Sweden, who have suspended the vaccine, whilst Poland banned the vaccine totally. The
"Poland has become the only country to reject H1N1 vaccines, in a decision fraught with risk amid worldwide warnings of a spreading epidemic. The country rejected the vaccines over safety fears and distrust in the drug companies producing them – concerns international health experts reject as unfounded."
This is the information leaflet for the H1N1 vaccine Pandemix and what the USA Government have decided not to tell the citizens of the USA. This information can be found on
ANNEX I SUMMARY OF PRODUCT CHARACTERISTICS – Product information
"There are currently no data available on the use of Pandemrix in pregnancy. Data from pregnant women vaccinated with different inactivated non-adjuvanted seasonal vaccines do not suggest malformations or fetal or neonatal toxicity.
There are no safety and immunogenicity data available from clinical studies with Pandemrix (H1N1) in children aged less than 6 months.
There are limited data available from a clinical study with Pandemrix (H1N1) in healthy children aged from 10 to 17 years, very limited data available from a clinical study with Pandemrix (H1N1) in healthy children aged from 6 to 35 months and limited data from a study with a version of Pandemrix containing H5N1 antigens in children aged from 3 to 9 years.
Very limited data in children aged 6 to 35 months (N=51) who received two doses of 0.25 ml (half of the adult dose) with an interval of 3 weeks between doses indicate an increase in the rates of injection site reactions and general symptoms (see section 4.8). In particular rates of fever (axillary temperature ≥38°C) may increase considerably after the second dose. Therefore, monitoring of temperature and measures to lower the fever (such as antipyretic medication as seems clinically necessary) are recommended in young children (e.g. up to approximately 6 years of age) after each vaccination.
There are limited data available from clinical studies with Pandemrix (H1N1) in adults aged over 60 years and very limited data with Pandemrix"
In other words this vaccine is untested and should be taken with extreme caution. There is a serious lack of data on adverse reactions in several key groups of the population including pregnant women.
However, despite this missing data and despite Eileen Dannemann's damning evidence, Dr McCormick remains undeterred and sticks firmly to her views that there is absolutely no need for any concern. She continues to maintain that in 2009/10 there were absolutely no H1N1 vaccine- related adverse events in pregnant women. The Child Health Safety report said:-
"Just prior to Ms. Dannemann´s presentation Dr. McCormick, had pronounced that there were absolutely no H1N1 vaccine-related adverse events in pregnant women in 2009/10, directly contradicting the evidence publicly available.
The very next week at the Sept 14th National Vaccine Advisory Committee (NVAC) meeting Dr. McCormick, (despite having been informed on two previous occasions of the VAERS data) pronounced, once again, that there were no adverse events in pregnant women. At the conclusion of the NVAC meeting, during public comment, Dannemann submitted the data again"
