Thousands of USA pregnant women miscarry after the H1N1 vaccine
In an exceptionally strong and well executed report, written on the Child Health Safety Website entitled 'Flu Vaccine Caused 3,587 US Miscarriages from H1N1 Vaccine,' they say :-
"The corrected estimate for the total number of 2009-A-H1N1-flu-shot-associated miscarriages and stillbirths during the 2009/10-flu season is 1,588 (95% goodness-of-fit confidence interval, 946 to 3587). That is, the lower and upper range-probability of miscarriage and stillbirths due to the H1N1 vaccine was as low as 946 and as high as 3,587.
Eileen Dannemann, Director of NCOW, presented the findings for the second time to Dr. Marie McCormick, chair of the Vaccine Risk and Assessment Working Group, during the Advisory Commission on Childhood Vaccines (ACCV) meeting, Sept 3, 2010. Just prior to Ms. Dannemann´s presentation Dr. McCormick, had pronounced that there were absolutely no H1N1 vaccine-related adverse events in pregnant women in 2009/10, directly contradicting the evidence publicly available."
Despite these alarmingly high figures being made public, which have been fully backed up with reports taken from the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS), the Government still strongly recommends that this potentially dangerous vaccine, reported to have killed thousands of developing fetuses, to pregnant women of the USA.
On 22nd September 2010 Reuters had this to say :-
"NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Despite landing in the hospital more often if they catch the flu, no more than a quarter of pregnant women in the U.S. get vaccinated against it.
That's according to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, which has issued a recommendation urging all pregnant women to get the flu shot.
While the recommendation itself isn't new, the statement, published in the journal Obstetrics and Gynecology, adds evidence on the safety and effectiveness of the vaccine, said Dr. William M. Callaghan of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta.
He said the CDC and several medical associations back the statement, which notes that the shot not only protects the woman, but also her baby.
Flu vaccines aren't approved by the Food and Drug Administration for infants younger than six months of age, but babies can get the protective antibodies naturally through breast milk if their mother got the vaccine."
Note the sentence "Flu vaccines aren't approved by the Food and Drug Administration for infants younger than six months of age" By recommending this vaccine to pregnant women this is exactly what the FDA, are doing, they are actively promoting a vaccine for use in babies of less than 6 months old.
The Bloomberg Business week agrees with the Governments recommendations saying:-
"Based on expert medical opinion, we urge all pregnant women, and women who expect to become pregnant, to get their influenza immunization because the flu poses a serious risk of illness and death during pregnancy," Dr. Jennifer L. Howse, president of the March of Dimes, said in a news release from the organization.
"The flu vaccine has been shown to be safe and effective," she noted. "As an added bonus, during pregnancy, mothers pass on their immunity, protecting babies until they are old enough to receive their own vaccinations."
However, Elileen Dannemann is not alone in her concerns relating to the new H1N1 vaccine. The citizens of India have been very reluctant to have this vaccine. On September 5th I wrote the article The public of India boycott the H1N1 vaccine because they fear side effects I stated that Prison Planet had said that the Indian public were rejecting the H1N1 vaccine through the fear of side effects. In their article 'India Rejects H1N1 shots after vaccines kill children' by Paul Joseph Watkins, Watkins reported that the rejections of the vaccine en masse, followed reports that the measles vaccine killed four children in the village of Lucknow.
The H1N1 vaccine has already been rejected by Finland and Sweden, who have suspended the vaccine, whilst Poland banned the vaccine totally. The Hindu stated:-
"Poland has become the only country to reject H1N1 vaccines, in a decision fraught with risk amid worldwide warnings of a spreading epidemic. The country rejected the vaccines over safety fears and distrust in the drug companies producing them – concerns international health experts reject as unfounded."
This is the information leaflet for the H1N1 vaccine Pandemix and what the USA Government have decided not to tell the citizens of the USA. This information can be found on ANNEX I SUMMARY OF PRODUCT CHARACTERISTICS – Product information
"There are currently no data available on the use of Pandemrix in pregnancy. Data from pregnant women vaccinated with different inactivated non-adjuvanted seasonal vaccines do not suggest malformations or fetal or neonatal toxicity.
There are no safety and immunogenicity data available from clinical studies with Pandemrix (H1N1) in children aged less than 6 months.
There are limited data available from a clinical study with Pandemrix (H1N1) in healthy children aged from 10 to 17 years, very limited data available from a clinical study with Pandemrix (H1N1) in healthy children aged from 6 to 35 months and limited data from a study with a version of Pandemrix containing H5N1 antigens in children aged from 3 to 9 years.
Very limited data in children aged 6 to 35 months (N=51) who received two doses of 0.25 ml (half of the adult dose) with an interval of 3 weeks between doses indicate an increase in the rates of injection site reactions and general symptoms (see section 4.8). In particular rates of fever (axillary temperature ≥38°C) may increase considerably after the second dose. Therefore, monitoring of temperature and measures to lower the fever (such as antipyretic medication as seems clinically necessary) are recommended in young children (e.g. up to approximately 6 years of age) after each vaccination.
There are limited data available from clinical studies with Pandemrix (H1N1) in adults aged over 60 years and very limited data with Pandemrix"
In other words this vaccine is untested and should be taken with extreme caution. There is a serious lack of data on adverse reactions in several key groups of the population including pregnant women.
However, despite this missing data and despite Eileen Dannemann's damning evidence, Dr McCormick remains undeterred and sticks firmly to her views that there is absolutely no need for any concern. She continues to maintain that in 2009/10 there were absolutely no H1N1 vaccine- related adverse events in pregnant women. The Child Health Safety report said:-
"Just prior to Ms. Dannemann´s presentation Dr. McCormick, had pronounced that there were absolutely no H1N1 vaccine-related adverse events in pregnant women in 2009/10, directly contradicting the evidence publicly available.
The very next week at the Sept 14th National Vaccine Advisory Committee (NVAC) meeting Dr. McCormick, (despite having been informed on two previous occasions of the VAERS data) pronounced, once again, that there were no adverse events in pregnant women. At the conclusion of the NVAC meeting, during public comment, Dannemann submitted the data again"
However, there is evidence to suggest that this is not the first time that Dr McCormick has been less than honest with the USA citizens, perhaps McCormick is hired because, using US tax dollars she can be relied on to do the wrong thing for the American people but the "right thing" for her bosses. McCormick is a tool of those who hire her and apparently she is very effective. The Child Health Safety report continues:-
"McCormick has done this before.
If a criminal recklessly discharges a firearm in the street that can be an offence of reckless endangerment. If a Federal Health official recklessly ignores plain evidence putting women and unborn children at risk and also causing miscarriages and stillbirths what should the penalty be? Are life sentences or death penalties appropriate for McCormick and her bosses? They should all face stiff penalties.
Consider the following evidence from a Texas legal case and then ask yourself: "What is the difference between hiring Dr Marie McCormick to sit on one of these vaccine safety committees and hiring her to discharge indiscriminately an M240 machine gun into a baseball stadium crowd of pregnant school moms and kids.
Law firm Waters & Kraus produced in a Texas Court a closed session transcript of a US Institutes of Medicine Committee chaired by McCormick to investigate the link between vaccines and autism On file in the US District Court of Texas, Eastern District; Case #5:03-CV-141
Dr. McCormick stated, "we are not ever going to come down that it is a true side effect," before the committee had considered any evidence [page 97].
Dr. McCormick noted the US CDC "wants us to declare, well, these things are pretty safe on a population basis." [page 33].
McCormick´s IoM committee colleague Dr. Stratton stated "the point of no return, the line we will not cross in public policy is to pull the vaccine, change the schedule. We could say it is time to revisit this but we will never recommend that level. Even recommending research is recommendations for policy. We wouldn´t say compensate, we wouldn´t say pull the vaccine, we wouldn´t say stop the program.[page 74]"
Perhaps Dr McCormick would be wise to read these tragic stories from Mom's who have trusted the Government and people like her and have tragically lost their babies as a consequence, this is what bereaved mothers had to say, when they explained what had happened to them, after they decided to go ahead with the H1N1 vaccine.

Is The H1N1 Vaccine Safe? Shocking Stories From Pregnant Women Who Have Had Miscarriages After Taking The Swine Flu Vaccine
"sioux falls, south dakota:
I received the H1N1 vaccine on October 16th and started experiencing cramping on the 22nd. I was nearly 17 weeks pregnant and gave birth to a stillborn baby boy on the 23rd. Like many of the other women here, the first thing I suspected was the H1N1 vaccine. I immediately asked a nurse at the hospital if that would have anything to do with it. Without hesitation, she told me "absolutely not." I had reservations about getting the vaccine, but followed the advice of my long trusted family doctor. In a follow up appointment with my doctor 3 days after I lost my baby, I asked him if the vaccine would have had any adverse effects on my baby. He also said that it was not possible. I don´t believe that my doctor was necessarily lying to me, he was simply following the accepted practices and opinions of his field. I do, however, believe that as a nation, we are being lied to. This vaccine is NOT safe during pregnancy. There has not been enough testing done to determine this and there are far too many "coincidences" for this to be anything but a result of a vaccine that was hastily pushed into production and distribution in an effort to stop widespread panic. I have read so many stories in defense of the vaccine that will talk about how common miscarriages are, but I would challenge you to ask ANY health care professional how common second trimester miscarriages are. My baby was doing perfect developmentally and I had felt him move earlier that day. My heart goes out to all of you out there who have had to go through the same heartache and loss that I have had in the last couple of weeks. There is no reason that any woman or family should have to go through this. Get the word out to all of the pregnant women that you know. I know that if I had heard that women had been losing their babies shortly after they received the vaccine, I would have followed my gut and not gotten it myself. Maybe then Wyatt would have had a chance at life.
I´m from a town of 2000 in SD, there are several women pregnant and we are all due within a few weeks of each other. Four of us got the H1N1 vaccine 2 weeks ago and one by one each of us started to have preterm contractions. We are all due in Nov and Dec so we are further along than most of the people that lost their babies. There is no way you can tell us that our preterm labor was not caused by the H1N1 vaccine. It may look like a "fluke" to some people when these women are scattered all over the country but we are talking about 4 of us in our small community. My heart goes out to all of you that lost your babies.
I also received the H1N1 vaccination on October 22nd, 2009 and went into labor on October 25th, at 16 weeks pregnant and we just heard the heartbeat and everything was fine with my pregnancy on October 16th, 2009, then on October 28th my water broke then on October 29th, I delivered a stillborn baby boy, and no one can tell me why…Everyone wants to say it did not come from the shot but I believe it did. My baby was growing at the correct pace and everyone wants to brush off the vaccination. I say if you have the vaccination and suffer a miscarriage if they are able to perform an autopsy have it done.
I also agree something needs to be done and looked more into with this vaccination because most women are being advised it´s just something that happens, but I also had two healthy children normal pregnancies and when I received this vaccination with my third pregnancy, my baby is gone."
Ms Dannemann says in her report:-
"This baseless and fallacious assessment by the CDC assessment group" says, Dannemann,"has given the green light to the CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) to continue their recommendation to give the 2010/11 flu shot to all people, including pregnant women. This upcoming 2010/11 flu vaccine contains the same elements that are implicated in the killing of these fetuses, the H1N1 viral component and the neurotoxin mercury (Thimerosal). Additionally, it contains 2 other viral strains- a 3 in 1 shot for all people"
When is this madness going to end? I was given a quote this morning which I would like to pass to Dr McCormick, The quote is one by Thomas Szasz who said:-
"Formally, when religion was strong and science was weak, men mistook magic for medicine; now, when science is strong and religion is weak , men mistake medicine for magic."
Point very much made I feel.
