The research and post was written by Steven M. Rubin, Ph.D., a computer scientist who maintains the online searchable VAERS database, MedAlerts. He has managed this database voluntarily and independent of his official work since 2003 and has worked with the NVIC since 2005. 1.
In his blog entry on MedAlerts, Dr. Rubin states that “It has been suggested that the H1N1 Flu vaccine causes miscarriages. This month, I want to see if the claim is supported by VAERS data.” 2.
Dr. Rubin explains how it is determined whether a VAERS event resulted in a miscarriage. “VAERS uses the MedDRA symptom classification, which organizes all known symptoms at five levels of detail. At the second level of detail is an entry “Abortions and stillbirth” which has under it “Abortion related conditions and complications”
He surmised the data would “surely favor vaccines that have been given for 21 years over those that have been recently introduced, because such vaccines will have been given much more, and so will have produced many more symptoms. In other words, this graph should de-emphasize the H1N1 Flu vaccine, which has existed for just one year. We should see relatively few H1N1-related miscarriage events compared with the “Seasonal”
However, the VAERS data proved him wrong. Dr. Rubin acknowledges the “results are shocking. First of all, the H1N1 Flu vaccine has appeared in miscarriage events more often than almost any other vaccine.
And then he states:
But the graph has more shocking results for us. The H1N1 Flu vaccine appears in many of the abortion/stillbirth cases, but not the most. The “winner,” appearing in 297 of the VAERS records associated with miscarriage, is Gardasil (vaccine code HPV4)! Once again, this vaccine is a newcomer, having only existed for 4 years.
His advice to pregnant women is to “read the product manufacturer’
According to a recently released study; New Adjuvanted Vaccines in Pregnancy: What is Known About Their Safety?
“Owing to the fact that pregnant women are usually excluded from the majority of clinical trials on vaccines, little is known about the side effects of adjuvants during pregnancy. There are only a few published studies on the safety of adjuvanted vaccines during pregnancy. These studies, however, concentrated on the extreme effects of adjuvanted vaccines on pregnancy (i.e., teratogenic effects). No attention has been paid to more subtle effects, such as effects on placental development or fetal weight or the effects of the vaccine or its adjuvant on the maternal immune system. During normal pregnancy, the maternal immune system adapts to accommodate the semiallogeneic fetus and interference with this immune system may interfere with normal pregnancy.3
SANEVax is outraged that a vaccine that is a “relative newcomer” has the highest incident of induced abortions and stillbirth rates higher than any other vaccine on the market. There is no doubt the vaccine’s safety and efficacy has not been thoroughly investigated. And independent investigation on the safety and efficacy of the HPV vaccines, Gardasil and Cervarix must be conducted before there are more injuries and deaths.
There is currently no vaccine specifically approved by the FDA for use during pregnancy in the United States. Caveat Emptor – let the buyer beware!
One More Girl
It is obvious that the pharmaceutical marketing campaign promises of ‘One Less Girl’ at risk for cervical cancer and ‘armed for life’ have turned into a global travesty as each day ONE MORE GIRL suffers and adverse reaction or and/or death – or the death miscarriage/
