[2015 Oct] INDIAN COURT TOLD RELEASING VACCINE DATA WOULD ALARM PUBLIC!  An Indian Rotavirus vaccine has been trialled in India. The results showed that the vaccine has a very high rate of intestinal telescoping (intussusception) which is much higher than the Rota vaccine that got banned internationally. What was more alarming was the trial data from a Medical College in Vellore, India, showing that the vaccine was causing 70 times more such adverse events than the currently licensed vaccine in India!

New Paper – Polio Vaccine – Disease Caused by Vaccine Twice As Fatal – Third World Duped – Scarce Money Wasted – Polio Eradication Impossible

[pdf 2012] Polio programme: let us declare victory and move on  while India has been polio-free for a year, there has been a huge increase in non-polio acute flaccid paralysis (NPAFP). In 2011, there were an extra 47,500 new cases of NPAFP. Clinically indistinguishable from polio paralysis but twice as deadly, the incidence of NPAFP was directly proportional to doses of oral polio received. Though this data was collected within the polio surveillance system, it was not investigated. The principle of primum-non-nocere was violated.

[2012 March] Pentavalent vaccine related deaths. OPEN LETTER TO DIRECTOR GENERAL, WORLD HEALTH ORGANISATION

 “We generally get mails from people who say they are either journalists or health activists. After research we find that the mails are from scared doctors.  My role has been to both educate the doctors and the public. I have succeeded to some extent as in India vaccines are still perceived as life savers and parents tend to believe doctors much more than us. Unlike in developed countries, here there is absolutely no effort on the part of parents to research on vaccines, which is a great stumbling block. There are no books on the subject in the market. Even if they do research on the net or are told by us they end up being ensnared by the doctors who frankly scare them out of their wits. Other activists do not engage doctors. I do, with great effort, as I feel that either many of these doctors are not aware or they feel that their patients will never know the truth. So I both let them have full disclosure and also let them know that we know. Not many of the pediatricians will let the information affect their practice, but doctors of other modalities may put pressure on them as they too need to protect their own children and grandchildren. So there are many aspects of this fight and I try to fight with as diverse a method I can think of.”

[2011 Oct India] The Hep-B Vaccine: How dissenting voices were scuttled by Jagannath Chatterjee

[2003] Manufacture of Consent?  Hepatitis B vaccination by Y Madhavi  This article explores several questions concerning the inclusion of hepatitis B vaccination under the universal immunisation programme in India, such as the prevalence of the disease in the population, cost-effectiveness and international experience. There are strong indications that the vaccine policy in India, rather than being determined by disease burden and demand, is increasingly driven by supply push, generated by industry and mediated by international organisations. The debate on hepatitis B in India underscores the need for a strong health information and disease surveillance system, local capability building and rigorous economic evaluation studies with regard to health policies.

THE POLITICS OF VACCINATION-II The Policy Of Forcing Hepatitis-B And Hib Vaccines On India And Pressure To Eradicate Polio--- DR OMESH BHARATI
    The number of vaccine attributed polio victims in India is anywhere between 30,000 to 300,000 according to media reports. The IMA has a figure of 85,000, up to 2005, in its website. Doctors have been "advised" to keep quiet on these issues for "the greater good of humanity".
    It is very sad that no effort is being made to track, treat and compensate the unfortunate children. GAVI, UNICEF, Rotary and WHO do not reply to our mails making it plainly evident that they are least bothered about the health of Indian children. Shame upon them who wish to profit by killing and maiming little babies.
    It is very disturbing that poisons are being introduced into infants who are not supposed to be fed anything other than breastmilk during the first six months of their lives. The spread of cancers, diabetes and other immune disorders in children cannot be hidden any longer. Countries putting the maximum emphasis on vaccines have the highest rate of infant mortality. The health of teenagers today is alarming.
    We also do not understand how the voices of Indian doctors are not being heard and instead "foreign experts" dictate terms in matters of vaccination policy in India. Who are these "experts" and what influence do they yield to dictate terms? What are these "experts" doing to ensure compensation and treatment for the millions of vaccine damaged children? What are they doing to educate the public about vaccine dangers?
    You cannot take the "First do no harm" medical oath and push vaccines at the same time. This is ludicrous. This is madness. This is utter stupidity. - Jagannath

[2002] Mass hep-B vaccination shouldn't be allowed

[2001] Vaccine for Hepatitis B unnecessary, says doctor  "A scare is being created among the people that Hepatitis B is fatal without vaccination. The reality is that in 94 per cent of the cases, the victims recover spontaneously without any medical treatment, four per cent are healthy carriers, one per cent can get liver cancer and another one per cent might die,"
