The implementation of a pentavalent (5 actives in one vaccine) into the Indian health system has caused great concern, especially since “Every few days one more child dies after receiving the pentavalent vaccine… Yet as these deaths mount, it has been announced that pentavalent vaccine is to be introduced in 3 more states…” 
The five-in-one vaccine contains actives for diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, hepatitis B, and Haemophilus influenzae type B (Hib). It seems that the hepatitis B active is questioned as not being protective of infections in babies. How interesting! As a result, parents are refusing to have their children vaccinated, while vaccination rates have fallen off dramatically—25 percent in the last four years.
Ten Indian health experts, Dr Amitav Banerjee, Dr Arun Gupta, Dr BM Hegde, Dr JP Dadhich, Dr Jacob Puliyel, Dr KP Kushwaha, Dr Ritu Priya, Dr SK Mittal, Dr S Srinivasan and Dr Vikas Bajpai, wrote a letter to the Indian PMO (Property Management Officer)  wherein they stated that
The study conducted by the Sanjay Gandhi Postgraduate Institute of Medical Sciences, Lucknow, and the National Institute of Nutrition, Hyderabad and two editorials in the journal (Indian Paediatrics) raised several questions regarding the universal immunization programme (UIP) itself. Dr T Jacob John in his editorial noted that the frequency of chronic infection was similar in both the unvaccinated and the vaccinated – about 0.15%. The Hepatitis B vaccine was thus completely useless in this population. Professor Jacob John further observed that the immunological and epidemiological outcomes of rolling out Hib are not being monitored as UIP has no capacity for that function. [CJF emphasis]
And concluded with:
In short, expensive vaccines that have little utility are being rolled out without monitoring benefits or harms and which are causing deaths and serious adverse effects. As a result, inspite of official attempts at denial, the public are losing trust in the entire immunization programme. [CJF emphasis]
Those ten health experts expressed concern and questioned what many other health professionals globally ask about: Transparency within the organization in India that gives the green light for vaccine use in India. India, I offer, is neither unique nor alone regarding the transparency issue. From my research into vaccines and its politics for decades, every country relies upon the U.S. CDC/FDA pseudoscience regarding vaccines and that has to stop, especially when so much scientific fraud regarding vaccines not producing autism or other adverse health effects are trashed, minimized, or withheld deliberately from health agencies and the public. That, in my opinion, is unmitigated FRAUD!
One of the doctors, Jacob Puliyel, raised the issue of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s involvement and conflict of interest! Seems the Gates Foundation is involved in many of the problems in foreign countries’ vaccine programs. I wonder why. Several years ago in India, 47,500 children were paralyzed, plus some deaths, after receiving the Gates Foundation oral polio vaccine  as reported in2013. And still, government officials haven’t learned a lesson about vaccines’ ability to harm!
Regarding the hepatitis B vaccine, the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) conducted a benefits received study in 2014 and found that after ten years of children receiving the hepatitis B vaccine there were no differences between children who received the vaccine and those who did not! The only difference, I might add, is that those who received the hepatitis B vaccine may find that there may be long-term health effects like:
- Autoimmune inflammatory polyneuropathy
- Multiple sclerosis
- Chronic arthritis
- Bell’s palsy 
Anaphylactic shock and death in infants, though, are more immediate reactions, which sometimes prompt doctors to suspect and accuse parents or caregivers of physical abuse or Shaken Baby Syndrome.
It seems Indian health officials question the efficacy of the Hib vaccine and performed several studies including a probe study and found that “The vaccinated kids reported more pneumonia cases, says Dr Puliyel. The same study was repeated in Bangladesh with similar results.” That, I offer, is not unusual, as vaccinated children make up the higher percentage of those contracting diseases for which they have been vaccinated. That’s been proven in various demographics taken in the United States, too.
Here’s what’s sounding alarm bells for everyone in India:
Now the issue was not just of relevance but of risk to children in being given a mixture of five vaccines in a single shot or the pentavalent vaccine. Three deaths were reported in Sri Lanka when the pentavalent vaccine was introduced there. Here, the deaths were probably caused by the vaccine as no other reasons were found, said critics like Dr Puliyel. Experts seemed to have flouted the standard norms of classification of adverse events following vaccinations. This was exposed in a paper published by the critics group in the British Medical Journal.
Hence, when it was introduced in India in 2011 it was restricted only to one state, Kerala. In the first year, at least 12 deaths were reported in vaccinated children, beginning with a death of a healthy child on the first day itself.  [CJF emphasis]
Interestingly, Indian health activists cite a German study, the TOKEN study, wherein “they say has shown that the hexavalent vaccine (a six-in-one vaccine) results in sudden unexplained deaths of children within 48 hours of vaccination.”
Furthermore, the TOKEN study also found “that deaths could be explained by other reasons like maternal smoking or over-heating of the environment. It said there was no increased risk of sudden death within one week after hexavalent vaccination.” Question: Weren’t those risks prevalent before the children were vaccinated and they still lived, but coincidentally died within one week after a hexavalent vaccination?
The vaccine problem in India has caused concern for health officials since vaccination rates are going down, something they don’t want, but which parents obviously do. Professor Dr Jacob John points out that
[T]he immunisation programme in our country is as flawed as the rest of the healthcare programmes. It is divorced from preventive healthcare or public healthcare which would mean monitoring disease, its causes and prevention. The way we immunise children in India leaves much to be desired, as pointed out by Dr Jacob Puliyel. Immunisation is for disease prevention, but in India MoH does not monitor if vaccines are preventing diseases in the community. For that ‘public health surveillance’ has to be practised, but India does not follow that principle. In India healthcare and immunisation are like a set of rituals with no basis in reason. 
Immunization a ritual with no basis in reason is a good way of describing what many would call the ‘religious belief dogma of vaccinology,’ which states dogmatically that vaccines are safe regardless of the fact that no study ever has been undertaken, either retrospectively or ongoing, on the interaction and/or adverse events of multi-valent vaccine actives in one vaccination and giving as many as nine vaccines at one time to a less than 25 pound infant!
Dr Puliyel sums vaccine programs not only in India, but for elsewhere, when he claims,
We do not have a programme for ‘control of childhood communicable diseases’, while we have a robust vaccine delivery platform, giving vaccines as rituals, without accurately measuring the outcome and carefully documenting every case of vaccine failure.
The point is that the Indian health ministry leaders are either incredibly stupid or absolutely compassionless. Could be both. 
I second Dr Puliyel’s comments; they apparently can be applied to every country that blindly implements mass vaccination programs by following the U.S. CDC/FDA’s ostensible Big Pharma vested interest influences and federal agency mandates. Some countries, after experiencing the adverse health effects of the HPV (human papillomavirus) vaccines, officially do not recommend the HPV vaccines. India and Japan have suspended HPV vaccination recommendations. 
It’s time for a real evaluation of the poisoned needles.
