"Rotavirus Vaccine - What You Need To Know"

Save Children At Risk – Demand Release of Trial Data On Dangerous Vaccine – Help Yourself, Your Children and Others – Tell The Director, Christian Medical College, “Release Rotavirus Vaccine Trial Data”

Vaccines which kill and injure children are unacceptable.  This is why you are asked to sign the petition linked to below. The problem with the rotavirus vaccine is it can kill.  The other problem is the rotavirus is no risk to your child.
Read on for why. 
30 Seconds of your time could save a child’s life, so click the link and sign the petition:
Rotavirus vaccine is given to children to interrupt the circulation of the rotavirus to prevent diahorrea.  In developed western economies this is not a killer disease.  The vaccine is part of a programme directed to eradication of the virus.  Your child gets the vaccine because some anonymous officials have decided they don’t want to develop a proper treatment.  They want to be heroes and claim the credit for eradicating a disease which is no threat to your child or any child in your entire country.  It does not seem to matter who gets in the way.  That your healthy child is put at risk of death on the way somehow does not seem important to some of them.  That larger numbers of third world economy children are put at risk also seems not so important – just as long as no one identifies and names those concerned as pushing a killer vaccine.
Rotavirus vaccine causes some children’s intestine to fold into or collapse into itself.  This is called intussusception.  It is dangerous and a killer.  It seems that many if not all rotavirus vaccines have this problem.  So if you are in a developed western country you have every right to insist 1) your child is not given a rotavirus vaccine and 2) those who push the vaccines develop effective treatments instead for the very few who might have a problem with the virus.
This killer vaccine is no benefit to your healthy baby, but is a threat even to your baby in the USA:  Intussusception Risk after Rotavirus Vaccination in U.S. Infants N Engl J Med 2014; 370:1766May 1, 2014DOI: 10.1056/NEJMc1402790.  This “telescoping” often blocks food or fluid from passing through. Intussusception also cuts off the blood supply to the part of the intestine that’s affected. Intussusception can lead to a tear in the bowel (perforation), infection and death of bowel tissue. It requires an x-ray and surgery to diagnose and correct the situation.
See the end of this post for a list of the top countries listed where rotavirus is of zero risk and for those where it is near negligible risk.
So you should be asking, why is my baby being given this vaccine?  And if you are in the USA, with the imminent introduction of the US “Vaccinate All Children Act of 2015” you have to ask why is the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices mandating a useless vaccine for my child which only puts my child at risk of death.  Under the Bill currently before Congress your child has to have vaccines ACIP mandates – no if’s, no but’s and no religious or conscientious exemptions and even if the vaccine is pointless and puts your child at risk including of death – like rotavirus vaccine [courtesy of Dr Paul Offit].
This brings us to the science and the main topic of this post.  Rotavirus Vaccine 116E has according to a letter in the journal Vaccine in 2015, been tested in only 4532 infants (4532 received vaccine; 2187 were controls). There was an excess of 11 cases of intussusception per 10,000 vaccinated. This is 5 to 10 times higher than the risk of intussusception with Rotashield vaccine (which was withdrawn from the market) and nearly 70 times higher than the risk of intussusception with the current, internationally licensed vaccine, RotaTeq.  Ultrasound evidence of intussusception was found in 17 who had received the 116E vaccine (3.75/1000 or 37.5/10,000) and in 6 babies receiving placebo (2.636/1000 or 26.36/10,000): Letter to Editor – Intussusception risk with 116E rotavirus vaccine in Vellore, South India.

So please click the link and sign this petition:
The WHO has said it is unethical not to disclose data from a trial of this nature. Instead of disclosing the data, there is concern it is planned to do an uncontrolled trial in 100,000 more children exposing them to risk of death without disclosing the data from the previous trial. The full data must be provided from the Vellore trial.
Intussusception rates varied in the different regions studied by John and colleagues. In Vellore it was 581/100,000 child-years and in Delhi it was much lower – 27.7/100,000 child-years. John J, et al Active surveillance for intussusception in a phase III efficacy trial of an oral mono-valent rotavirus vaccine in India. Vaccine 2014;32 (August (Suppl. 1)):A104–9.
The regional differences in intussusception rates could mean that it may be more risky to use the vaccine in some areas. The authors called for segregated data from Vellore for vaccinated and control where the intussusceptions cases were highest. This data could also point out if a certain section of the population were more susceptible to adverse effects. However despite several attempts the data is not being shared which is a cause for great concern.
We would request the Director, Christian Medical College to release the trial data as per the recent WHO call for ethics and transparency in research.
Don’t be pushed around by some of the thugs and bullies who accuse people concerned for children’s safety that they are “anti-vaccine” instead of pro children’s safety.  They are encouraged by Dr Ben Goldacre’s BadScience Forum or some thugs and bullies amongst those individuals who congregate at Dr David Gorski’s rants on the non-science or near science-free “scienceblogs” blog or by the likes of Dr Paul Offit, who attacks anyone whilst making money from his own rotavirus patents: Paul Offit – Liar “Doctor of Vaccine Profit” Voted His Patented Rotavirus Vaccine For US Children When On Vaccine Safety Committee.


A word of warning about the statistics.  These are World Health Organisation estimates.  In CHS’s opinion WHO is not a reliable source of data and their estimates can be what we believe is exaggerated.  Do not forget that it was the WHO’s SAGE Committee headed by the UK’s Professor David Salisbury which brought us the swine flu debacle and at least 800 children who developed the serious condition of narcolepsy from GSK’s in our view near pointless for children swine flu vaccine.  Some of the people who push vaccines appear in our opinion to be fanatics who do not listen to science, ethics or reason.
