Vaccine News: AAP Opposes Ban on Thimerosal, While Study Finds More Vaccines Equate to Increased Hospitalization and Death


Story at-a-glance -

  • American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) urges United Nations Environmental Program (UNEP) to keep thimerosal in vaccines rather than consider banning the preservative in a global mercury treaty, stating that the use of the mercury-containing preservative in vaccines is necessary to conduct mass vaccination programs in developing countries
  • The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) publicly criticized the AAP’s defense of thimerosal, pointing out that the EPA and FDA have not withdrawn their 1999 directive to the vaccine industry to remove thimerosal from childhood vaccines, which must be disposed of as hazardous waste if they contain the mercury preservative
  • According to a groundbreaking new study, there’s a definitive positive correlation between the number of vaccine doses administered and the percentage of hospitalizations and infant deaths. The hospitalization rate increased linearly from 11.0 percent for 2 doses to 23.5 percent for 8 doses. The mortality rate for 1-4 vaccine doses was 3.6 percent. At 5-8 vaccine doses, the mortality rate rose to 5.5 percent
  • Presence of HPV-16 L1 gene DNA in a girl’s postmortem blood and spleen tissue has been confirmed. The girl died in her sleep six months after her third Gardasil vaccination. The fragments are similar to those found in the vaccine, and might offer a plausible explanation for the high immunogenicity of Gardasil
