From birth, children are bombarded with a variety of different vaccinations, just take a look at the immunization schedule for children in the United States.(here) A new study published in the journal Vaccine has linked multiple infant vaccines to an increased rate of infant mortality.(1) The vaccines in question are the DTP, MV and YF vaccines. The DTP vaccine refers to a combination of vaccines against three diseases; diptheria, pertussis (whooping cough) and tetanus. MV refers to the measles vaccine and YF refers to the yellow fever vaccine.
Studies from low-income countries have indicated that the co-administration of these vaccines is associated with increased mortality. Studies also indicate similar negative effects when the Pentavalent and YF vaccines are co-administrered.(1)
“In 2007-2011, we conducted a randomized placebo-controlled trial of vitamin A at routine vaccination contacts among children aged 6-23 months in urban and rural Guinea-Bissau. In the present study, we included 2331 children randomized to placebo who received live vaccines only (MV or MV+YF) or a combination of live and inactivated vaccines (MV+DTP or MV+YF+pentavalent). Mortality was compared in Cox proportional hazards models stratified for urban/rural enrolment adjusted for age and unevenly distributed baseline factors. In line with previous studies of DTP, the present results indicate that pentavalent vaccine co-administered with MV and YF is associated with increased mortality. ” (1)
This study comes out of Guinea-Bissau, a West African country. It’s on par with other studies that have already created much cause for concern pointing to the fact that the co-administration of the DTP vaccine and the MV vaccine increases infant mortality. (2)(3)
