The hepatitis B vaccination is one that even pro-vaccinators should question from a common sense perspective. The vaccination is now routinely given at birth for newborns, with follow-up vaccines scheduled during infancy.
The health risks of giving this vaccination to healthy newborns are relatively high and include death and permanent disability. The promised protection from hepatitis B is an empty promise at best. Even the makers of the vaccine do not guarantee that the vaccine provides any lasting immunity from hepatitis B.
In other news, the CDC’s vaccine task force, known as the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) announced that the live attenuated vaccine was only three percent effective in children ages 2 through 17. This panel of vaccine experts stated that “no protective benefit could be measured.” In the general population, overall flu vaccine effectiveness was only 49 percent.
