occurs primarily among children under 5 (although breastfeeding is an effective preventative).
we really don't know all that much about the incidence of haemophilus influenzae b, particularly prior to vaccine licensure. According to the CDC, "haemophilus influenzae infections became nationally reportable in 1991"

The Perilous Haemophilus
or is it.....pneumonia

By Hilary Butler

July 1996

"CHILDREN SICKER AND LOTS MORE ATTENDING STARSHIP HOSPITAL" [according to NZ Herald, 26 Dec 1995, A3.]

[New Zealand]
Headline: "COT DEATH INCREASE ‘APPALLING’" The cot deaths [SIDS] increase occurred THREE MONTHS after the introduction of the nationwide blanket administration of the first Hepatitis B vaccine immediately after birth.

...Public Health nurses who had had the vaccine [HepB] and the following winter had had health problems never previously experienced.

...from the beginning of July 1994 to the end of October 1995, there was a 23% increase in youngsters being brought into hospital and a 15% increase in admissions. This occurred just over one year after the introduction of TETRAMUNE [DTP and Hib] in this country and two years after the introduction of ProHIBit (Hib vaccine for 18 month children and older), and in the year when the Health Department had flooded the media with reports of how the cases of Hib had fallen to rock bottom. We were told that this vaccine would ease the total work load of the paediatric staff but here we see more, sicker children than ever before.

In the latest article: "Doctors are noticing that the proportion of very young children admitted is getting higher and that generally, children seem to be sicker when they arrive."

Interestingly they mentioned an increase in cases of pneumonia, asthma, meningococcal disease, fevers and bronchiolitis….that the reasons weren’t clear, but "lack of money to pay doctor’s bills could be a factor."

What is the evidence linking pneumonia in the NZ Herald article heading with the Haemophilus vaccine?

[USA]
The Kaiser study (Arch Ped. Adol. Med. Jan 1994 pg. 54) did admit that the rates of Haemophilus had been falling in the two, four and six month age group, previously unvaccinated, for some time before its introduction...yet it was amongst this very group of babies that the study was done for the safety of TETRAMUNE – the same vaccine we use in New Zealand.

Bells started ringing in my head. Some years ago, the first Swedish study of the Japanese acellular pertussis (whooping cough) vaccine was abruptly stopped because a larger number of serious infections and deaths were occurring in the vaccinated group than the unvaccinated. The raw data repeatedly came up with PNEUMONIA and MENINGOCOCCAL MENINGITIS.

August 1992 JPID:
Kaiser study 130,000 children. "Only six vaccinated children developed invasive Haemophilus disease, five of whom had received only one dose. In a Letter to the Editors in the October issue, Leggiadro and colleagues will show a substantial reduction in cases of invasive Haemophilus disease admitted to LeBonheur Children’s Hospital, Memphis, TN from 1982 – 1991. OF CONCERN WAS A TWOFOLD INCREASE IN THE RATE OF PNEUMOCOCCAL DISEASE IN 1991." (emphasis mine)

Note the year – 1991, which was in the 12 – 24 month period after the introduction of this vaccine. Just like in Auckland.

[Finland]
...article in The Lancet, 11 March 1995, Volume 345, p661, from Finland, the first country to use the Hib vaccine in a widespread fashion.

"INCREASE IN BACTERAEMIC PNEUMOCOCCAL INFECTIONS IN CHILDREN".

TEXT EXTRACTS:

"For comparison, the figure shows the declining occurrence of bacteraemic Haemophilus influenzae type B (Hib) infections in the coverage area of the hospital. Hib vaccinations started in Finland in 1986, and the last case of invasive disease in our hospital was seen in 1991. Thus our results suggest that following the disappearance of invasive Hib disease in children bacteraemic pneumococcal infections have increased. A similar, although less striking increase has been reported in Philadelphia." [Kaiser]

The medical literature makes it quite clear, with studies done on healthy people showing that:

"Other organisms will be found in throat swabs. In general these have no relevance to clinical illness, and the laboratory should not report other organisms, including staphylococcus aureus, Haemophilus influenzae, and the meningococcus." (NEW ETHICALS JUNE 1994.)

An even better study in Acta Paediatr 1995; 84:566-4 found that when tracheal and laryngeal aspiration were performed on healthy children it was found the majority carry potentially pathogenic bacteria, and: "we conclude that aspirates from the larynx and the trachea are of limited value in the diagnosis of bacterial PNEUMONIA in children."

from an Article by Meryl Dorey - Australian Vaccination Network

... When the Hib vaccine was introduced, it is claimed that it caused an immediate 90% reduction in the incidence of Hib meningitis. A few curious facts that have been overlooked by the medical community should lay to rest once and for all the claims that the vaccine was responsible for this supposed decline.

1- whilst the vaccine was originally introduced for those aged 18 months and over, the decline was largest in those under this age group - in other words, there were fewer cases in the unvaccinated infants - not necessarily in the vaccinated toddlers.

2- the vaccine is only supposed to "protect" against the capsular form of Hib and it is true that there was a decline in this form after the vaccine was introduced, but the non-capsular form of Hib actually increased in incidence and the incidence of meningococcal and pneumococcal meningitis - both of which are multi-drug resistant - increased exponentially after the introduction of this vaccine. Two reasons have been given. Something called transferrance (sp?) where when one disease is prevented, others come in to take their place - in this case, 2 that are much worse than the original one. And another is, that because Hib, like all bacteria that can cause meningitis, is an invasive infection, the further weakening of the immune system by the introduction of more vaccines, will always lead to more infections.

The suppression of the immune system following vaccination is so well known in the medical literature that it is even given a name - a 90 day window of opportunity. It is known by researchers that people who recieve a vaccine are much more likely, for a period of 90 days following - to be subject to invasive infections.

They know it, but most doctors don't and almost no parents do. It is criminal.

HIB VACCINE MAY CAUSE JUVENILE DIABETES
http://www.healthy.net/scr/article.asp?Id=2984


© What Doctors Don't Tell You (Volume 10, Issue 9)

Children who receive multiple doses of the Haemophilus influenzae b (Hib) vaccine are at increased risk of developing type I juvenile-onset diabetes, according to new American research.

When researchers in Baltimore compared children who had received four, one and no doses of the vaccine, the cumulative incidence of diabetes per 100,000 in the three groups was 261, 237 and 207 at age 7 and 398, 376 and 340 at age 10, respectively. This works out to be that the greatest increased risk is among children who receive the full quotient of the vaccine.

The incidence of diabetes among US children aged five to 10 had been stable in the 10 years prior the introduction of the vaccine.

The increased risk of diabetes - which is just one of the potential adverse effects of the Hib jab - certainly exceeds the benefits of the vaccine, say the Baltimore research team. The Hib vaccine has been estimated to prevent approximately seven deaths, and between seven and 26 cases of severe disability per 100,000 children who have been immunised (BMJ, 1999; 319: 1133).

* In another study, scientists have found that the routine vaccination of newborns with the hepatitis B vaccine increases the risk of fever (Arch Dis Child, Fetal and Neonatal Edition, 1999; 81: F206-7). A before-and-after study showed a link between the launch of the vaccination programme in Israel and the number of babies with unexplained fever in the first three days of life. As yet, the scientists do not know what significance this finding has for the short- or long-term health of the infants.
