The DPT Vaccine. Do doctor's really know it is dangerous? And if so, why are they not telling us?

The DPT vaccination is given to young babies when they are two, three and four months old. It is supposed to protect them from Diphtheria, Pertussin (Whooping Cough) and Tetanus. In the UK it is perhaps not as well known, or as controversial, as the MMR vaccination whilst in the USA perhaps the opposite is the case.

Harris L Coulter first wrote about the DPT vaccination in his two books, "A Shot in the Dark: why the P in the DPT vaccination may be hazardous to your children's health", and "Vaccination: Social Violence and Criminality: The medical assault on the American brain" in the early 1990's. Both books paint an alarming picture of the dangers of the vaccination.

More recent evidence of the dangers of the DPT vaccine has also emerged.This includes evidence published in the British Medical Journal that the vaccine is killing baby girls. Gaia Health have discussed these finding here, stating that “baby girls are dying at a rate more than 3 times greater than would have happened without the vaccine”.

Studies have also shown that this vaccine is also linked with seizures. Reuters reported Dutch research that showed that “Babies who got a single shot that included vaccines against tetanus and whooping cough were at higher risk of having a fever-related seizure on the same day”. The research found that about 7,800 kids, or just over 2%, were diagnosed with a fever-related seizure by the time they were one and a half.

So there must now be serious doubts about the value of the DPT vaccination, both in terms of safety, and effectiveness too. Recent epidemics of Whooping Cough (Pertussis), mainly in the USA (see, for example, this link), have occurred where the vast percentage of children have been vaccinated against the disease. Moreover, studies have shown that 90% of those who have fallen to these epidemics have been the children who have been vaccinated.

That the vaccine may change its form or description over the years should not suggest that the new vaccines, including the ‘6 in 1’ vaccines, are any safer or more effective than the old ones. Natural News published this article in February 2013 about one new vaccine being prepared for India.


What has emerged more recently is that it is now known that the drug manufacturer of Infarix (one type of DPT vaccine) admits to a very large and serious list of dangers on the package inserts. 

So, as with the MMR vaccine, it is now clear that our GP's, the NHS, and the Department of Health have been told by the Big Pharma companies what the adverse reactions, or DIEs, are for this vaccine (information taken from this web-link)

Incredibly, the list includes encephalopathy, seizures, Guillain-Barre, inconsolable crying, hypotension, and, most worrying of all, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, or SIDs.

          "The DTaP package insert warns that the vaccine should not be given if the recipient experiences any of the following with a previous dose (the DPT vaccine is given 3 times):
  • Encephalopathy such as coma, seizures, or loss of consciousness
  • Progressive neurological disorder, such as spasms or epilepsy
  • Guillain-Barre syndrome within 6 weeks of the prior dose (The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke define Guillain-Barre Syndrome as "a disorder in which the body's immune system attacks part of the peripheral nervous system. The first symptoms of this disorder include varying degrees of weakness or tingling sensations in the legs. In many instances, the weakness and abnormal sensations spread to the arms and upper body. These symptoms can increase in intensity until the muscles cannot be used at all and the patient is almost totally paralyzed. In these cases, the disorder is life-threatening and is considered a medical emergency."
  • Temperature above 105 degrees within 48 hours
  • Collapse or a shock-like state within 48 hours
  • Persistent, inconsolable crying lasting longer than 3 hours and occurring within 48 hours
Contraindications, or circumstances which mean that an individual should not receive the DTaP vaccine, include the following:
  • Latex sensitivity or allergy (parts of the syringe contain latex)
  • Moderate to severe illness, with or without a fever
  • Bleeding disorders such as hemophilia
          The DTaP vaccine package insert specifically states that "INFARIX has not been evaluated for carcinogenic or mutagenic potential, or for impairment of fertility." This means no one knows if the DTaP vaccine causes cancer or interferes with fertility, and that no study has been conducted to try and find out.

          The following conditions are listed as adverse reactions on the DTaP vaccine package insert. The manufacturer includes many qualifiers, including that some of these reactions are voluntarily reported and so they can neither prove nor disprove that the vaccine actually caused them.
  • Redness 
  • Swelling 
  • Pain 
  • Fever 
  • Fussiness 
  • Drowsiness 
  • Poor Appetite 
  • Vomiting 
  • Persistent crying 
  • Seizures 
  • Hives 
  • Swelling of the Mouth 
  • Difficulty breathing 
  • Hypotension 
  • Shock 
  • Brachial neuritis 
  • Guillain-Barre Syndrome 
  • Sudden Infant Death Syndrome 
  • Cyanosis 
  • Diarrhea 
  • Intussusception 
  • Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura 
  • Lymphadenopathy 
  • Thrombocytopenia 
  • Anaphylactic reaction 
  • Hypersensitivity 
  • Cellulitis 
  • Limb swelling 
  • Convulsions 
  • Encephalopathy 
  • Hypotonia 
  • Hypotonic-hyporesponsive episode 
  • Somnolence 
  • Irritability 
  • Respiratory Tract Infection 
  • Erythema 
  • Pruritus 
  • Rash 
  • Urticaria 
  • Ear pain
Remember, when looking through this list of DIEs, that the vaccine is given to babies from about 3 months old.

Every parent must now ask their doctor about these adverse reactions, and whether the vaccine is worth the risk. 

The vaccine is supposedly (the issue of effectiveness has not been mentioned here) protecting babies from Diptheria, Pertussin (Whooping Cough) and Tetanus, all conditions that children can be protected from more safely with Homeopathy.


UPDATE 27th August 2016
The Natural Health website has produced a video, which shows that the DPT vaccine called Tripedia also causes a large number of serious diseases, including “idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, SIDS, anaphylactic reaction, cellulitis, autism, convulsion/grand mal convulsion, encephalopathy, hypotonia, neuropathy, somnolence and apnea.”.

Who says so? The USA drug regulator, the FDA, says so. It also says so on the Patient Information Leaflet that accompanies each Tripedia vaccine. Watch this video for more information.
