bullet"There were 872 serious adverse events reported to VAERS in children under 14 years of age who had been injected with hepatitis B vaccine"
bulletat most, 10 percent of doctors report adverse reactions to VAERS.
bulletBy contrast, in 1996 only 279 cases of hepatitis B disease were reported in children under age 14."

If 10% of the adverse events are reported, then there are at least 8,720 adverse reactions to the vaccine, which is 31 times as many as the total number of cases of Hepatitis B.

This makes the vaccine at least 31 times more dangerous than the disease.




                           The Danger of Hepatitis B

                                   by Kevin B. O'Reilly

                      Kristin Jennings was explaining what
                      happened to her 3?-year-old son, Dylan. She
                      recounted how he was a "completely healthy"
                      two-week-old baby before he received his
                      hepatitis B vaccination, at the
                      recommendation of his pediatrician.

                      She told of his extreme agitation and high
                      fever the night of the vaccination, and how
                      he stopped breathing in the doctor's office
                      the next day. He was feverish for three days
                      and projectile vomited on the fourth. On the
                      fifth day, all the tests came back negative
                      and Dylan was to be released. That's when he
                      started having seizures, and drifting in and
                      out of consciousness.

                      Jennings relayed how a CAT scan revealed
                      tremendous swelling of Dylan's brain. Three
                      months later, she and her husband, Jeb
                      Jennings, learned that Dylan had suffered 40
                      percent brain damage as a result of
                      meningo-encephalitis (swelling of the brain)
                      - almost the entire left side of his brain.

                      Even under the best of circumstances Dylan
                      would have a severe learning disability and
                      mild cerebral palsy, doctors told the
                      Jennings. Under the worst case scenario, he
                      would be mentally retarded and confined to a

                      That's when Dylan could be heard crying and
                      yelping in the background, having just
                      awakened from a nap. His mother asked him
                      whether he wanted to say, "Hi." A sweet
                      little boy's voice spat out the word. "Hi,"
                      Dylan said.

                      "Do you want to say, 'Bye'?" his mother
                      asked. In the same fashion, he spat out a
                      heartily brief, "Bye."

                      "That's about half his vocabulary," Jennings

                      Though it has cost the Jennings, who live in
                      Vail, Colo., more than $50,000 for
                      occupational, physical, and alternative
                      therapies in the last three years to ensure
                      that Dylan could walk on his own and "be the
                      best person he could be," he was fortunate,
                      at least, to survive.

                                    Not An Isolated Story

                      Lyla Rose Belkin of Manhattan, N.Y., was not
                      so lucky. She died on Sept. 16, 1998 at the
                      age of five weeks, about 15 hours after
                      receiving her second hepatitis B vaccine
                      shot. That night, her father Michael Belkin
                      said, Lyla "was extremely agitated, noisy,
                      and feisty, and then she fell asleep
                      suddenly and stopped breathing."

                      The New York City medical examiner ruled the
                      death Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS),
                      because there wasn't evidence to indicate
                      any other cause of death. The coroner's
                      notes said, "brain is swollen" - just like
                      Dylan's was.

                      These are just two of the many stories of
                      parents whose children, usually infants,
                      have suffered severe reactions shortly after
                      being given the hepatitis B vaccine, which
                      was licensed by the FDA in 1982. As of 1999,
                      about 36,000 reports had been filed with the
                      Centers for Disease Control's Vaccine
                      Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) since
                      1991, when the hepatitis B vaccine was
                      recommended for all infants by a CDC
                      advisory panel.

                      Hepatitis B is a serious disease caused by a
                      virus that attacks the liver. The virus can
                      cause lifelong infection, cirrhosis of the
                      liver, liver cancer, liver failure, and

                      It is present in the blood and bodily fluids
                      of an infected individual and can be
                      transmitted through sexual activity,
                      intravenous drug use, and perinatally - that
                      is, from an infected mother to her child
                      during birth.

                      "It's not like a flu virus, where you get
                      the virus and you get over it and it goes
                      away," explained Dr. Pamela Diaz, medical
                      director for acute disease surveillance at
                      the Chicago Department of Health. "With
                      hepatitis B, there are two possibilities:
                      you can get over it and it goes away, or it
                      can stay with you as a chronic infection for
                      the rest of your life."

                      The CDC estimates that there are as many as
                      1.25 million Americans chronically infected
                      with hepatitis B. Every year, the CDC says,
                      between 140,000 and 320,000 people in the
                      United States become infected with hepatitis
                      B, but only half of those infections are
                      symptomatic. Every year, between 140 and 320
                      Americans die of the disease, according to
                      the CDC.

                      The CDC says that hepatitis B rates were
                      down 55 percent through 1993, though they
                      are going up among three groups: "sexually
                      active heterosexuals, homosexual men, and
                      injection drug users." Forty-one states have
                      added hepatitis B to their list of
                      vaccinations required for children entering
                      elementary school.

                           Neurological Damage from Vaccination

                      Many of the parents who have reported
                      adverse events to VAERS believe that the
                      hepatitis B vaccine injured their children,
                      though researchers at the Atlanta, Ga.-based
                      CDC say that there is no scientific evidence
                      of any serious reactions to the vaccine.

                      "The most common side effect is a mild
                      redness at the injection site, and an
                      occasional mild fever," said Diaz of the
                      Chicago Health Department.

                      Dr. Jane M. Orient, executive director of
                      the Arizona-based Association of American
                      Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS), and an
                      opponent of the mandatory hepatitis B
                      vaccine, disagrees.

                      "It's much more common for the baby to
                      scream for days on end inconsolably," she
                      said, "which is probably evidence for some
                      neurological damage that's going on, which
                      may or may not be permanent."

                      Diaz noted that in order for the hepatitis B
                      vaccine to be licensed by the Food and Drug
                      Administration (FDA), it had to go through a
                      "very, very rigorous" testing process. The
                      approval process usually takes 10 to 12
                      years, Diaz said, and includes randomized,
                      double-blind clinical trials using placebos.

                      "The hepatitis B vaccine was tested on
                      adults and in infants, because of the high
                      rate of carriage in China and Southeast
                      Asia," Diaz said, "where there were problems
                      with perinatal transmission, and a huge
                      problem with liver cancer, etc. Initially, a
                      lot of the vaccine trials were done in that
                      part of the world."

                      It is precisely where the trials were
                      originally conducted that troubles Orient.
                      "All the really bad long-term chronic
                      crippling conditions [caused by the
                      hepatitis B vaccine] have occurred in
                      Caucasians," Orient said.

                      "But the safety studies pre-licensure for
                      infants were done on Asians, like Taiwanese
                      or Alaskan Indians or Eskimos, who have a
                      much higher risk for the disease and may
                      also not have the genetic factors that
                      predispose a bad reaction to the vaccine."

                      Jennings said she almost immediately
                      suspected that Dylan was injured by the
                      hepatitis B vaccine, and mentioned it to her
                      doctors. She says they dismissed her
                      concerns, saying that the hepatitis B
                      vaccine couldn't have caused Dylan's

                      "They made me feel like I was a bad mother,
                      that I exposed the baby to some unknown
                      virus," Jennings said. "I took him out to
                      the supermarket when he was two weeks of age
                      and he caught something there. You know
                      that's the way that I think they make you
                      feel. They don't mean to, but the burden's
                      placed on you that your baby got sick." Not
                      one of the doctors who treated Dylan during
                      his first stay in the hospital, when he was
                      having seizures and his brain had swollen,
                      reported the matter to VAERS, Jennings said.

                                      No Report, No Data

                      This is in spite of the fact that VAERS
                      "encourages reporting of any clinically
                      significant adverse event that occurs after
                      the administration of any vaccine licensed
                      in the United States, even if it is not
                      certain that the vaccine caused the event."

                      This is one of the many controversies
                      surrounding VAERS. Parents and advocates for
                      limiting the hepatitis B vaccine's use among
                      infants and children say that, at most, 10
                      percent of doctors report adverse reactions
                      to VAERS.

                      In spite of VAERS being "underreported," in
                      their opinion, these same advocates have
                      attempted to use VAERS data to show that for
                      children under 14 the risk of an adverse
                      reaction to the hepatitis B vaccine is
                      higher than the risk of acquiring the
                      disease itself.

                      "There were 872 serious adverse events
                      reported to VAERS in children under 14 years
                      of age who had been injected with hepatitis
                      B vaccine," said Barbara Loe Fisher,
                      co-founder and president of the National
                      Vaccine Information Center (NVIC), a vaccine
                      safety advocacy organization.

                      "The children were either taken to a
                      hospital emergency room, had life
                      threatening health problems, were
                      hospitalized or were left disabled following
                      vaccination. Forty-eight children were
                      reported to have died after they were
                      injected with hepatitis B vaccine in 1996.
                      By contrast, in 1996 only 279 cases of
                      hepatitis B disease were reported in
                      children under age 14."

                      Diaz says that VAERS data cannot be used to
                      reach such a conclusion. "VAERS is an
                      adverse events reporting system, so any
                      adverse event that occurs after vaccination,
                      no matter how long after vaccination, can be

                      "And so," Diaz continued, "albeit that VAERS
                      collects a lot of information about adverse
                      events and vaccine history, it's not
                      designed to associate causality."

                      Dr. Deborah Wexler explained it differently.
                      "Many times in looking for answers [about
                      why children become ill], we do tend to draw
                      associations to something that happened very
                      recently," said Wexler, executive director
                      of the St. Paul, Minn.-based Immunization
                      Action Coalition, which works to boost
                      immunization rates.

                      "In terms of children," Wexler continued,
                      "it would not be uncommon to be able to find
                      within a certain time frame a point at which
                      a vaccine was given. That doesn't make it a

                      So, if VAERS is not designed to associate
                      causality and is statistically questionable,
                      what is its purpose? "There might be very,
                      very rare events that wouldn't get picked up
                      in clinical trials that might be detected
                      with VAERS," Diaz explained.

                      "It should be looked at in the sense that,
                      'We've had these reports, could there
                      possibly be an association, let's go look
                      and find out and do a study do determine
                      that.' It's a way of generating hypotheses

                         Sexually Active, Heroin-Injecting Babies

                      So, don't the thousands of adverse events
                      reports so far justify a new round of safety
                      studies on the hepatitis B vaccine? "Most
                      definitely," Diaz said, "we always need to
                      continue to monitor safety." What especially
                      angered Michael Belkin and his wife, Lorna,
                      was when they discovered that hepatitis B
                      was most prevalent among high- risk
                      populations of adults such as the sexually
                      adventurous, intravenous drug users, and
                      medical workers.

                      "Why in the world is this being given to
                      babies?" Belkin asked himself.

                      The reason, says Diaz, is that while most
                      adults do not become chronic carriers of the
                      disease, "if you acquire it as an infant,
                      unfortunately the scales are tipped toward
                      the baby being a chronic carrier.

                      "Ninety percent of babies become chronic
                      carriers," said Diaz. "Many who have the
                      virus chronically are asymptomatic. A number
                      of individuals will, however, go on to
                      chronic hepatitis B symptoms mostly
                      associated with liver damage, like cirrhosis
                      and liver cancer."

                      Wexler added that "children who acquire
                      hepatitis B have a 25 percent chance of
                      dying of liver disease as adults."

                      Jane Orient of AAPS finds this logic
                      questionable. "They say that the risk of the
                      disease is worse than the risk of the
                      vaccine. Well," she said, "if you get
                      hepatitis B the chance of having a bad
                      outcome is maybe greater than your risk of
                      getting a bad outcome from taking the

                      "But what they don't take into consideration
                      is that you may be very, very unlikely to
                      ever get the disease. It is not easily
                      contagious. It is often a lifestyle or
                      occupational factor, something that you are
                      not likely to get in casual contact."

                      Barbara Loe Fisher of NVIC agrees. "You know
                      you don't get hepatitis B by being next to
                      someone who sneezed in an elevator. It's not
                      like whooping cough or the measles. This is
                      a very different kind of disease to require
                      children to be vaccinated for."

                      "We're taught to believe that vaccinations
                      are safe and effective," Kristin Jennings
                      said. "We all buy into that - I, as a new
                      mother, did. I'm not against all
                      vaccinations. Every parent should have the
                      right to choose what is right for their

                      "But with the hepatitis B vaccine ? it is
                      criminal to require it to be given to a
                      newborn. They are not in a high-risk
