In a randomized study published by the highly respected Dr. Peter Aaby found that the Diphtheria–Tetanus–Pertussis (DTP) vaccine caused children to die at a higher rate than unvaccinated children. By the way, Dr. Aaby is not against vaccinations. Indeed, he promotes vaccinations. Yet he concluded that the DTP vaccine is killing children.
The conclusion of Dr Aaby’s study was that “[a]lthough having better nutritional status and being protected against three infections, 6–35 months old DTP-vaccinated children tended to have higher mortality than DTP-unvaccinated children. All studies of the introduction of DTP have found increased overall mortality.”
Other studies have shown that the mortality rate for DTP vaccinated children is two (2) times greater than the mortality rate for unvaccinated children. Dr. Aaby explains that “[a]ll studies that documented vaccination status and followed children prospectively indicate that DTP has negative effects; a meta-analysis of the eight studies found 2-fold higher mortality for DTP-vaccinated compared with DTP-unvaccinated.”
Doubling the mortality rate is bad enough, but that is not the whole story. The studies referenced by Dr. Aaby were biased in favor of the vaccinated group because the vaccinated groups were the healthier babies. Dr. Aaby explains that the “the ‘unvaccinated’ control children in previous studies having been a frail subgroup, too frail to get vaccinated.” Thus the unvaccinated babies did not receive the DTP vaccine because the doctors determined that they were too frail and unhealthy to tolerate a vaccination. But when the study measured babies of similar health, the detrimental effect of the DTP vaccine is revealed in all its horror. Dr. Aaby reveals that “DTP [vaccination] was associated with 5-fold higher mortality than being unvaccinated.”
That is bad enough, but it gets worse. You see, the unvaccinated group cited by Dr. Aaby in his conclusion simply means unvaccinated with DTP. The “unvaccinated” babies in that group had in fact been vaccinated with the oral polio vaccine (OPV). When the children that received the OPV are excluded from the unvaccinated group. The mortality rate for children receiving a DTP vaccine skyrockets to ten (10) times the mortality rate for children that received no vaccination at all. That suggests that there is also an increase in mortality due to the OPV.
When isolating only the DTP vaccinated children and comparing them to the truly unvaccinated children, the simple conclusion is that vaccinating a child with the DTP vaccination increases his chances of dying in the first 6 months of his life by ten (10) fold.
Dr. Aaby concluded that “[a]ll currently available evidence suggests that DTP vaccine may kill more children from other causes than it saves from diphtheria, tetanus or pertussis. Though a vaccine protects children against the target disease it may simultaneously increase susceptibility to unrelated infections.”
What informed parent would agree to vaccinate their child with the DTP vaccine? Indeed, why would any informed parent allow their child to be inoculated with any vaccine?
Infant Deaths Went Down During COVID Lockdown Because Children Were NOT Being Vaccinated
Mark Blaxill and Amy Becker studied mortality rates during the COVID-19 lock-downs. They discovered a startling fact. Infant mortality actually went down during the lockdown. There was a significant decrease in the number of infant deaths. Blaxill and Becker attributed that drop to the inability of parents to do well-baby doctor checkups with the obligatory vaccinations. Fewer vaccines = fewer infant deaths. Blaxill and Becker stated:
Starting in early March, expected deaths [for children under 18 years old] began a sharp decline, from an expected level of around 700 deaths per week to well under 500 by mid-April and throughout May. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. National Center for Health Statistics Mortality Surveillance System.
As untimely deaths spiked among the elderly in Manhattan nursing homes and in similar settings all over the country, something mysterious was saving the lives of children. As springtime in America came along with massive disruptions in family life amid near-universal lockdowns, roughly 30% fewer children died.
Was this a protective effect of school closures? Were teenagers getting themselves into risky situations at a lower rate? No. There was very little effect among school age children or adolescents.
Incidentally, since the publication of Blaxill and Becker’s article, the CDC has removed the page that memorialized the fact that almost all of the reduction in childhood deaths came from infants. Blaxill and Becker explain that the CDC statistics showed:
Virtually the entire change came from infants. Somehow, the changing pattern of American life during the lockdowns has been saving the lives of hundreds of infants, over 200 per week.
What has changed during this period that might have such an effect?
One very clear change that has received publicity is that public health officials are bemoaning the sharp decline in infant vaccinations as parents are not taking their infants into pediatric offices for their regular well-baby checks. In the May 15  issue of the CDC Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR), a group of authors from the CDC and Kaiser Permanente reported a sharp decline in provider orders for vaccines as well as a decline in pediatric vaccine doses administered. Santoli, Jeanne M et al. Effects of the COVID-19 Pandemic on Routine Pediatric Vaccine Ordering and Administration — United States, 2020. cdc.gov. [Online] May 15, 2020. These declines began in early March, around the time infant deaths began declining.
