Charred Shrink Wrap in Merck Vaccines: Read the FDA Inspection Reports.

If for no other reason, parents should not give their precious babies contaminated vaccines because you just cant trust the money hungary manufacturers. This is another in a sordid history of contaminations in vaccinations.

When you make drugs or other medical products, unwanted contaminants can fall into the mix — say, beetle parts (in baby formula) or glass flakes (in anemia drugs).

The latest pharma world example of wow-that-really-shouldn’t-be-in-there comes from Merck. As the WSJ reports, the company says charred bits of plastic shrink wrap have been found in vials of vaccines made at a big plant in West Point, Pa.

Affected products include Gardasil, used against the human papillomavirus, as well as shots against shingles, measles/mumps rubella, pneumococcal disease and chicken pox.

How’d this happen? It seems pieces of the wrap weren’t removed during vial washing and were charred during a sterilization process. Merck says there are no reports of adverse health problems, though theoretically the particles could cause a reaction at the injection site. The problem is very rare, according to the company.

Another 2 Month Old Boy Killed by Vaccines

An all to familiar story here which the 'authorities' try to cast off as 'milk aspiration'. Just unbelievable. How many babies have to die before something is done about these toxic concoctions?

The State Drug Control Administration, which began a probe into the death of a baby boy within a few hours of vaccination, has sent the samples of the batch for analysis to the Central Research Institute.

A two-month-old baby had died at his residence a few hours after three vaccines — Pentavac, Oral Polio Vaccine and IPV — were administered at a city hospital. The parents of the baby residents of Salivahananagar in Moosarambagh suspected that something went wrong and approached officials.

Mr P. Srinivas, the father of the bay and a resident of Salivahanaangar in Moosarambagh, said, “My wife delivered twins — a boy and girl — at the Sashi hospital on May 16. In the first week of July, we had gone to the hospital to get the kids vaccinated.

“Though our daughter was fine, our son died few hours after getting the vaccines. We have shifted to Warangal now. We didn’t want to book a case.”

32 Children Contract Vaccine Type Polio in India in last 2.5 years

Once again the Polio vaccine is indicted in causing most of the existing cases of polio in the world. Oral Polio vaccine is a attenuated live virus that can be shed by those vaccinated with it. This shedding can occur for weeks, as we have covered in this blog previously. It often results in paralytic polio and is not the 'anomally' this article tries to paint it as.

5 children contract polio from vaccine

Sumitra Deb Roy, TNN Aug 7, 2011, 01.09am
ISTMUMBAI: From being labelled the world's lone polio exporter in 2006 to reporting just one positive case till the eight month of this year, the polio scenario has never looked better than this for India. But celebrations are not in offing as the country is now faced with the challenge of fighting the vaccine-derived polio virus rather than the wild virus itself.

Simply put, the small quantity of the weakened polio virus present in the oral polio vaccine (to activate immune response) is the one seemingly causing polio in children now. At least, five children from Chhattisgarh, Punjab, Rajasthan, UP and MP have been struck by the vaccine-derived polio, whereas only one child from West Bengal has tested positive for the wild polio virus. The child from Chhattisgarh, who had a congenital anomaly and was highly immuno-deficient, recently died. There were 21 cases of vaccine-derived polio in 2009 that came down to 6 in 2010.
