The thing that strikes me about this article and the comments that follow is the sense of assurance expressed by doctors toward parents. It seems that doctors have been trauma conditioned through their training such that they lack both compassion and common sense.
We can see it all around us. So many of us are immunocompromised, yet the go to solution is to inject us with more immunocompromising agents?
Whatever happened to ‘Do no harm’?
Because, you know. Both sides put equivalent money and effort into it and played by the same rules.
Yes, to a court that is driven by forces of conformity that are similar to the conformity enforcing wishes of the AMA and allopathic medicine. Fancy that. http://www.thehealthyhomeeconomist.com/ ... o-and-dpt/
A one month old baby whose parents warned doctors that she was ill and had a cough, has died within hours of receiving routine vaccination for Hepatitis B, DPT and oral polio after doctors decided to proceed with immunization anyway.
The doctors told her parents that the cough was caused by a change in the weather and continued with the vaccinations despite their protest. This February 2013 case calls to mind the 2011 incident where a baby girl who had a cold was vaccinated by doctors anyway. Stacy died a short time later from meningitis, an illness she was vaccinated against.
In this most recent case of doctor vaccination negligence, baby Ayushi began to cry immediately after the vaccinations took place, according to reports in The Mumbai Mirror.
Doctors were again unconcerned about the situation, informing her anxious parents that she might cry the entire day and this was a common side effect of vaccination. Their only suggestion was to take Ayushi home and feed her two hours later.
Following the doctors’ advice, the parents took their baby home and fed her some milk two hours later. When they tried to wake her a short time later, she did not move.
The parents rushed Ayushi to the hospital but she was pronounced dead on arrival. The vaccine batches from which Ayushi received her shots and drops were subsequently checked and verified as “normal”.
Why are Sick Children Routinely Vaccinated?
Why was this child given vaccinations when she was obviously sick? Ayushi’s parents are wondering the same thing as they have filed negligence charges with local police against the hospital.
Apparently, Ayushi’s situation is far from unusual. Many Indian children receiving a large number of vaccines at one time are sick, malnourished and may even live in shocking conditions without access to clean water.
Children deemed high risk by doctors may receive up to 7 additional vaccines on top of the 50 that are received by age 5. These children include those affected by HIV, chronic cardiac and pulmonary disorders, asthma, liver disease, renal issues, diabetes, and blood issues.
Even those children receiving long-term steroid therapy, immunosuppressive treatment, or radiation therapy are given additional vaccines – some of them triple vaccines like MMR and DPT.
According to the September 2005 issue of Babytalk magazine, Dr. Paul Offit MD, Chief of the Division of Infectious Diseases and the Director of the Vaccine Education Center at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia said:
“A baby’s body is bombarded with immunologic challenges – from bacteria in food to the dust they breathe. Compared to what they typically encounter and manage during the day, vaccines are literally a drop in the ocean.”
Furthermore, Dr. Offit estimates that studies “theoretically” indicate that an infant could handle up to 10,000 vaccines at one time safely.
If a healthy infant can easily handle 10,000 vaccines a day, then certainly a baby with a cough like Ayushi can handle only 5 immunizations in a single day, right?
Except when they don’t. As cases like baby Stacy and now baby Ayushi show, the theoretical is not translating into actual.
Far from it.
Rest in peace baby Ayushi. May the negligent, incompetent medical staff who vaccinated you when you were ill be brought to justice.

My kids all got measles after taking the MMR. Docs shrugged it off saying there were lots of different strains of measles so they just got a different strain. The ONLY time my husband has had the flu was AFTER taking a flu shot. I was 37 weeks pregnant and having false labor from being on my feet all day when the doc ordered a shot to stop labor. (Not an immunization, but the same principle.) Two days later my baby had no heartbeat and I delivered a stillborn two weeks later. The doc wouldn’t listen to my suspicions of it being the shot. The next year he gave the same shot to another nurse in her last month and it killed her baby also. Doctors listen to pharmaceutical companies who are only interested in making money. Don’t do it!

What’s interesting and sad is the faulty logic they use to brush vaccine injury under the rug. Here it is: “Vaccines do no harm. This child was harmed. It can not have been the vaccine.” SO MANY vaccine injuries are treated this way that we can’t even get at the truth. The doctors will claim that the child died of whatever bug gave her the cough originally, because vaccines do no harm. The cause of death will not be listed as “vaccination.” So, if someone wants to look up vaccine injury statistics, the numbers are far lower than the truth. Lies. Heartbreaking.

You are exactly right. When my daughter was born 9 weeks early, with pneumonia caused by a hospital aquired infection (they gave me the infection first), the doctors and nurses in the NICU didn’t even expect her to survive, she was so sick. But that didn’t stop them from immediately beginning to pressure me into vaccinating her. I refused…I couldn’t believe they actually thought that was appropriate given the situation. Very long story short, after she was finally released from the hospital, and her first pediatrician reported me to CPS for “neglect” because she was so small, I was very distrustful of the medical community. Her second pediatrician kept pressuring me to get her vaccinated, and I knew if I refused, I would likely get another visit from CPS. She was about four months old when I finally gave in, because of my fear of losing her to the state
. She was given a full set all at once, much to my horror. She stopped growing completely for an entire month after that. That of course, was my fault because I wasn’t feeding her the corn syrup laden formula they insisted she needed, so I was reported to CPS for “neglect” for the second time in three months. All of the doctors I met at that time insisted that vaccines couldn’t and wouldn’t cause her to stop growing, so I got to be the scapegoat
. The entire first year of my daughter’s life was like living through a nightmare. It is a miracle that she survived not only the life threatening complications that caused her to be born early, but also the medical “care” she received afterwards. I’m happy to report that inspite of everything, she is now a healthy, intelligent seven year old.
(vaccination functions as excellent control mechanism, so it does have that going for it.)(Doctors do no harm so ipso facto, vaccines do no harm.)
That is a programmed passive response, as per the Mechanics of Power thread.

My daughter was about a month old when I took her for her first shots, and also quit growing. I was never reported to CPS, but then, we rarely went to the doctor, either. It took her nearly a year to begin growing at a decent rate again (proof in point–I have her one-year picture taken in a 3-6 month size dress). I never took her for any more shots. Of my next two children, one got only the Hep B (I was under the impression that it was mandatory), and my last one has had none at all. It’s a risk I’m no longer willing to take.
