Infant Boy in India Dies After Getting Pentavalent Vaccine

feet of a baby

Three-month-old Rohan Kumar died on Feb. 6, 2020 after receiving the “5-in-1” pentavalent (diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, hepatitis B and Haemophilus influenzae type B) vaccine at a government health center in Ramgarh, India.1 2

An investigation into the infant boy’s death was ordered by the local health department. A rural child health officer was tasked with overseeing the investigation and a representative of the World Health Organization (WHO) said that a case report detailing the child’s death following the vaccination was provided.1 2

The pentavalent vaccine was introduced into India’s routine vaccination schedule for children during 2014-2015. The vaccine, which comes in vials of 10 doses each, is scheduled to be given to children three separate times—at six weeks, 10 weeks and 14 weeks of age.3 4

Pentavalent vaccines in India are manufactured by four pharmaceutical companies, including Serum Institute (Pentavac PFS), Panacea Biotecs (Easyfive TT), Biological E (ComBE Five) and Shantha Biotechnics (Shan5).5

Over the past two years, there have been numerous reports of babies dying or becoming seriously ill in India soon after receiving the pentavalent vaccine. Another recent case involved a two-month-old infant boy who died on Jan. 11, 2020, a day after receiving the pentavalent vaccine at a rural child care center in Hunshyal.5 6 7 8

  1. why do you insist, putting 5 in one shot. these are babies!! 1 thing at a time, babies do not need a hepatitis B period! and an inflluenzae type B???

    1. Agree….but they don’t need any of these medieval elixirs. We know this is true because we have larger and larger groups of healthy un-vaccinated children. And more and more damaged and dead vaccinated!

  2. We have to keep getting this vital information out so parents can avoid vaccines at all costs… I am heartbroken and disgusted.. It is almost too late for so many, but THIS MUST BE STOPPED NOW….

    What to do? How to go about it?


  3. By the way, if that warrant was served on Bill and Melinda Gates, surely more infants and children are not going to put through all this? WHY has the arrest not been pursued? Will President Trump not give Gates up? Or is he in a position where he cannot right now?

    Either way, can’t the officials put a ban on vaccines themselves knowing the damage that is being done??? They MUST put a ban on vaccines.

  4. Health Officials all over the world should be ashamed of themselves of the torment they caused on the families and the precious little babies. They are not educated or they just don’t care about these children. When are these people (Government officials, pretend caring doctors, WHO and education departments going to stop with recommending tiny babies to get all these vaccines. No matter what they say to promote this dirt, these vaccines are dangerous. Oh wait, “They don’t Care”

  5. Its difficult to talk sense to legislators who have a steady stream of top execs and experts and lobbyists bombarding them with industry hype and lies that are very carefully crafted (with promises of $$ come re-election time) to confuse and conflate and confound them. And in fact we know industry lobbyists assist in writing new bills. Its corporatism as Mussolini defined it. Donate to NVIC.org. Stay informed at the very least.
