Infant Boy in India Dies Hours After Getting Oral Polio Vaccine

According to a news report, government welfare tribal committee chairman Vivek Pandit wondered, “How the healthy child died after vaccination?”1

Local authorities registered the case as an accidental death and the infant’s body was sent for an autopsy to be conducted.1 2 3

On Sept. 5, 2019, two-month-old Priyanka Biswal died a day after receiving OPV and the pentavalent (diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, hepatitis B and Haemophilus influenzae type B) vaccine at a community health center (CHC) in Naranapur, India.4

A report by the Orissa Post noted, “after intake of the polio drops, the child’s condition deteriorated on the way back home.” She developed a fever and was taken to the CHC  where she was declared dead.4

In June 2018, a two-month-old baby and three-and-a-half-year-old child died hours after receiving OPV and pentavalent vaccines at community health centers in Chinhat and Indasai, India.5

India’s national vaccination schedule requires the OPV and pentavalent vaccines be given to infants at six weeks, 10 weeks and 14 weeks—a total of 18 vaccines over the two-month period.6 7

    Well, this comes as no surprise. The OPV has not been used in the USA since the early 1990’s, because it had been proven to be too lethal. And, the new pentavalent vaccine has proven to be just as lethal during testing. I’m surprised this is still going on when India has a lawsuit against Bill Gates and his foundation for using the OPV, in the past, with it’s record of destruction to the Indian children.

    This was a well known complication in Australian Aboriginal children who died of acute scurvy when vaccinated with polyvalent vaccine The high morality due to the oxidative stress was promptly stopped when Vitamin C was given to pregnant mothers and infants. The doctor wrote a book about it. SIDS is cured by supplementing with a cheap vitamin. Look up Every Second Child on Amazon

    This is extremely sad and upsetting, yet unfortunately not surprising, It has always been a fact that whatever is no longer use in one place for X, Y, Z reasons, will find its way to be sold and used in places where people may not be as aware of the consequences (not that many are aware of the consequences either here in this country, despite the best efforst of organization like this one to reveal the facts).

    These deadly snake oil pharmaceutical companies routinely dump contaminated vaccines in other poor countries. This is criminal, but we know why heads aren’t rolling. Bill Gates seems to take. pleasure in giving poor children polio vaccines. He’s evil.
