Vaccine Research & Vaccine Testing

When we talk about the safety studies of vaccines it can be more than you’d expect to meet the eye. Not everything you see on a poster in the doctor’s office is complete, and rarely will you be offered to see and read through, or have explained to you a vaccine manufacturer product insert. They are overwhelming and scary. Are vaccines tested rigorously and proven safe? What are they tested against?

A friend of mine, a trusted 30+ year practicing doctor actually called Merck in 2010 to inquire re the placebo of the rotavirus vaccine. It was exactly the same ingredients as the vaccine group minus the attenuated virus. So how can this really be acceptable to determine side effects and effectiveness?


DTaP Vaccine (Diphtheria, Pertussis, and Tetanus Vaccine)

Daptacel tested against DTP and DT. {link}
Infanrix tested against Pediarix. Both groups administered varying combinations of HepB, IPV, HIB, PCV, MMR & Varicella vaccines at the same time. {link}
Kinrix tested against Infanrix. Both groups also received IPV and MMR at the same time. {vaccine research link}
Pediarix – German study: test group =Pediarix AND HIB versus control group = Infanrix, HIB AND OPV.
USA study: test group = Pediarix, HIB, PCV versus control group = Infanrix, Hep B, IPV, HIB, PCV. {link}
Pentacel (5 in 1: Dtap, Polio, HIB) tested against already licensed and non-licensed combinations of those vaccines. Both test and control groups also received PCV, HepB (and MMR at the last dose) at the same time. {link}
Quadracel (4 in 1: Dtap & Polio) tested against already approved Daptacel & IPOL vaccines. Both test and control groups also received MMR and varicella vaccines the at same time. {link}

HIB Vaccine (Haemophilus Influenzae Type B Vaccine)

ActHIB reactions observed after administering ActHib or ActHib plus Daptacel, IPOL & PCV. No group did not get ActHib at all. {link}
Hiberix tested against previously licensed HIB vaccines and both groups given various combinations of pediarix, PCV, rotarix & HepB at the same time. {link}
MenHibrix (Meningococcal & HIB) tested against a single licensed HIB vaccine. Both groups given various combinations of Pediarix, PCV, MMR or Varicella vaccines at the same time. {link}
PedVaxHib (Meningococcal & HIB) tested against another form of pedvaxhib or a placebo. All groups given DTP and OPV at the same time. {link}

Hep A Vaccine (Hepatitis A Vaccination)

The Hepatitis A Vaccination is recommended for all children age 12 months or older, for travelers to certain countries, and for people at high risk for infection with the virus. The hepatitis A vaccine is given as two shots, six months apart.
Havrix – all groups received Havrix. Group 1: Havrix Group, 2: Havrix and MMR, Group 3 Havrix and Varicella. {link}
TwinRix (Hep A & Hep B) tested against already approved Hep & and B vaccines given separately (Havrix & Engerix-B). {link}

Hep B Vaccine (Hepatitis B Vaccine)

Engerix-B given to all test subjects and observed for reactions. No control group was observed or compared. {link}
Recombivax given to all test subjects. Infants and adults simply observed for reactions. Children compared the 2 vs 3 dose schedule. {link}

HPV Vaccine (Human Papilloma Virus Vaccine)

All three vaccines prevent infections with HPV types 16 and 18, two high-risk HPVs that cause about 70% of cervical cancers and an even higher percentage of some of the otherHPV-associated cancers (9, 10). Gardasil also prevents infection with HPV types 6 and 11, which cause 90% of genital warts (17).
Gardasil tested against aluminum adjuvant or a “saline placebo”. However, the saline placebo is made up of water, 9.56mg sodium chloride, 0.78mg L-histidine and 50micrograms polysorbate-80. {link}
Gardasil 9 tested against regular Gardasil. {link}
EMC study of “global media monitoring” of HPV vaccine reports. {link} Another {link}
Two recent studies in medical literature describe seven girls and young women who were severely debilitated by a disorder that includes extreme dizziness, intense fatigue, tachycardia, heart palpitations, chest pain, severe headaches and insomnia following HPV vaccination. {link}

Flu Vaccine (Influenza Vaccine)

Influenza vaccines, also known as flu shots or jabs, are vaccines that protect against influenza. A new version of the vaccine is developed twice a year as the influenza virus rapidly changes
All flu vaccines observed for reactions, no control group, and/or against other flu vaccines (yikes!!!). {link}

MMR Vaccine (Measles, Mumps & Rubella Vaccine)

The MMR vaccine is an immunization vaccine against measles, mumps, and rubella. It is a mixture of live attenuated viruses of the three diseases, administered via injection. The MMR is in wide controversy to be linked to the onset, or conclusion of toxic overload and autism symptoms in children. It was first developed by Maurice Hilleman while at Merck.
MMRII, adverse event observation of those who receive MMR. {link}
ProQuad (mmr+varicela) tested against MMRII + Varivax given together. {link}

Meningococcal ACWY Vaccine (Meningitis Vaccine)

Meningitis is an inflammation, swelling of the protective membranes covering the brain and spinal cord. A bacterial or viral infection of the fluid surrounding the brain and spinal cord usually causes the swelling.
Menactra tested against Menomune OR a group receiving PCV, MMRV and HepA instead. {link}
Menomune was tested against Menactra. {link}
Menvo was tested against groups getting typical childhood vaccines or a compararative vaccine. {link}

Meningococcal B Vaccine

Bexsero tested against either a meningococcal ACWY vaccine, Japanese encephalitis vaccine or an aluminum placebo. {link}
Trumenba tested against groups getting other vaccines and/or a “saline placebo”. However, the saline placebo is made up of water, 9.56mg sodium chloride, 0.78mg L-histidine and 50 micrograms polysorbate-80. {link}

Pneumococcal (PCV13) Vaccine (Pneumonia Vaccine)

Pneumococcal conjugate vaccine is recommended for all babies and children younger than 2 years old, all adults 65 years or older, and people 2 through 64 years old with certain medical conditions.
Prevnar 13 tested against the old Prevnar. {link}

Polio Vaccine

Polio, or poliomyelitis, is a crippling and potentially deadly infectious disease. … The virus spreads from person to person and can invade an infected person’s brain and spinal cord, causing paralysis (can’t move parts of the body).
IPOL (Inactivated Polio) tested by observing subjects who got IPOL, DTP & Tripedia vaccines at the same time. {link}

Tdap Vaccine (Tetanus, Diphtheria, and Pertussis Vaccine)

Tetanus is a serious bacterial infection that causes painful muscle spasms and can lead to death. Diphtheria is a serious infection of the nose and throat commonly a sheet of thick, gray matter covers the back of the throat, making breathing hard. Pertussis is a highly contagious respiratory tract infection commonly known as Whooping Cough, a cough that sounds like “whoop,” symptoms include a runny nose, nasal congestion, and sneezing.
Tdap should be administered regardless of interval since last tetanus or diphtheria toxoid-containing vaccine (e.g., Td). After receiving Tdap, people should receive Td every 10 years for routine booster immunization against tetanus and diphtheria, according to previously published guidelines.
Adacel tested against Td vaccine. {link}
Boostrix tested against Td vaccine. Some participants also received meningococcal or flu vaccines at the same time. {link}

Td (Tetanus and Diphtheria Vaccine)

TD Generic- states “Data on adverse reactions following fluid and adsorbed preparations of MassBiologics’ Td with various doses of diphtheria and tetanus components have been reported in a series of studies”, and also that it can be used to complete the dtap series but safety and efficacy have not been evaluated. Does not list study results. {link}
Tennivac tested against a vaccine called Decavac. {link}

Varicella Vaccine (Chickenpox Vaccine)

Varivax claims placebo-based trials and later in the insert states no placebo-based trials took place. Then describes trials with varying dosages of antigens and dosing schedules. {link}
