MenAfrivac: Tragedy in Africa

[SaneVax: December 20, 2012, at least 40 of the 500 African children injected with a new meningitis vaccine, MenAfrivac are now paralyzed. A vaccination program conducted in the name of public health has turned into a nightmare for parents in Chad. This nightmare was organized and/or paid for by the following organizations:  The U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Program for Appropriate Technology in Health (PATH), the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF).

Video Footage Shows Prime Minister Visits Paralyzed Children, Powerful Groups Involved in Vaccine Campaign

MenAfrivac: Public Health or Devastation?

MenAfrivac: Public Health or Family Devastation?

The details of a vaccine campaign disaster that occurred last month in a north African country continue to unfold, while headlines of this tragedy are strangely absent from news organizations around the world. VacTruth shared the story last week with the world in an exclusive report, and we have additional updates to share with you about the plight these families are now facing.

On January 6, 2013, I wrote an article entitled Minimum of 40 Children Paralyzed After New Meningitis Vaccine describing how at least 40 children in Gouro, Chad, located in northern Africa, became paralyzed after they had received the meningitis A vaccine, MenAfrivac. [1]

Further research about the Meningitis Vaccine Project shows the effort was a massive collaboration among major organizations. The vaccine, developed by the India Serum Institute, was funded by The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, in partnership with WHO and PATH, specifically to combat meningitis in Africa. We wonder why none of these groups are offering a statement about this devastating event.

On January 8, 2013, Mr. M., who wishes to remain anonymous, managed to leak television footage from the local television station TeleTchad, showing the Prime Minister of Chad, Emmanuel Nadingar, making an impromptu visit to one of two hospitals accommodating the sick children in hopes of reassuring parents and children. [2]

On January 9, 2013, a full-page article was published by La Voix, entitled The Fate of the Paralyzed Children is Worrying. La Voix, a print-only publication, reported that one parent, speaking from the bedside of her sick son, told reporters that some time after receiving the vaccination, three of the children became ill and their health became increasingly disturbing.

Another citizen told the newspaper,

“It took three to four people just to stabilize the children. Panicked by the turn of events, the team took to their heels.”

On January 10, 2013, an article was published by the Journal Du Chad titled Chad: A Vaccine Against Meningitis Caused Casualties, reporting that fifty children aged between 1 and 29 years were admitted to two hospitals, the Hospital of the Mother and Child and the General Hospital National Reference.

    Christina England’s excellent investigative journalism uncovers the terrible tragedies which have been caused by the MenAfriVac vaccine which is intended for millions of Africans.
    The vaccine has been transported and stored at high temperatures, which is extremely dangerous.
    However, this vaccine may lead to fathoms more of horrific consequences for yet another reason: It contains the extremely toxic combination of mercury and aluminium.

    I have written this diplomatically worded letter to the Chair of GAVI Dr. Dagfinn Hoybraten, to the Norwegian prime minister’s advisor on vaccines Dr. Tore Godal and to the Norwegian minister for aid to developing countries. (No replies have been received):

    Quote from the letter:
    “I am referring firstly to the controversial meningococcal vaccine project which took place in Norway 1988 – 91 and then to the meningococcal vaccine MenAfriVac which we understand is intended for millions of Africans.
    Here is the main report for the study in Norway. (Norwegian).
    (The conclusion is on page 168).
    It is noted with concern that the unusual combination of both aluminium and mercury were present in the vaccine (also in the “placebo”, page 39), although it is well known that these two substances exhibit considerable synergistic toxicity, a fact which is confirmed by competent toxicologists.

    A small dose of mercury that kills 1 in 100 rats and a dose of aluminum that will kill 1 in 100 rats, when combined have a striking effect: all the rats die:
    “Doses of mercury that have a 1 percent mortality will have a 100 percent mortality rate if some aluminum is there”.
    (Donald Miller, M.D. Professor of Surgery, University of Washington)
    Regarding this matter, my several attempts over the last few years for a response showing interest from the Norwegian authorities and others have unfortunately been fruitless.

    It has come to my attention that the MenAfriVac meningococcal vaccine is intended for millions of Africans.
    It is of deep concern to note that this vaccine also contains the dangerous, synergistically toxic combination of aluminium and mercury:

    Aluminium (adjuvant)
    Mercury/ Thiomersal (preservative)

    Trusting that the safety of vaccine recipients is carefully and conscientiously considered, independently of the ultimate goal of vaccinating millions of people:
    I thus respectfully request that this matter be carefully investigated by competent and independent experts including toxicologists.
    Awaiting your response to this matter with great interest,
