The following is an excerpt from The Vaccine Reaction.
A recent peer-reviewed study published in the medical journal Cureus provided evidence for a positive correlation between the number of vaccine doses given to babies and infant mortality rates.
The study confirmed a 2011 study conducted by the same researchers, which found a positive correlation between the greater number of vaccines given to infants in the most highly developed nations and a higher infant mortality rate.
The initial study published in 2011 in Human and Experimental Toxicology evaluated 2009 data from developed and under-developed nations around the world and found that the greatest number of infant deaths occurred in developed nations where infants were given the highest number of vaccine doses, totaling between 21 to 26 doses.
The United States gives infants under the age of one year 26 doses of vaccines—the highest number of vaccine doses of all nations.
Critics of the initial study claimed that the researchers did not use “the full dataset” available for all 185 nations in reaching their conclusion.
In the recent study, the authors of both studies, Gary Goldman, PhD and Neil Miller, conducted several investigations to test the reliability of their earlier findings in light of the claims made by critics.
Both Studies Confirm That More Vaccination is Associated With Higher Infant Mortality
The study authors also replicated their earlier study using both the original data set from 2009, along with updated data from 2019. All methods of analysis confirmed the findings of the authors’ original 2011 study.
The study investigating the reported relationship between vaccination and infant death included data about infant vaccination schedules provided by the World Health Organization (WHO), the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) and various national governments.
The 2023 published study evaluated data from 185 countries, while the original 2011 study included data from only 30 countries.
However, even using data from all 185 countries, the authors were able to replicate their original finding showing that the greater the number of vaccine doses given to infants, the higher the country’s infant mortality rate.
Analysis of VAERS Reports Suggests Causal Relationship Between Vaccines and SIDS
A 2021 study (also conducted by Miller) looked at the potential relationship between vaccination and sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).
Reviewing cases of infant deaths reported to the U.S. Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) from 1990 though 2019, he “found that a substantial proportion of infant deaths and SIDS cases occurred in temporal proximity to vaccine administration.”
About 58 percent of the 2,605 reports to VAERS of infant deaths post vaccination from 1990 through 2019 occurred within three days (72 hours) of vaccination and 78.3 percent occurred within seven days of vaccination.
The study concluded that, while it does not prove that vaccines cause SIDS, it demonstrates safety signals that highly suggest a causal relationship between vaccination and sudden infant death.
