Sudden Infant Deaths

August 19, 2021

Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and vaccines: a new analysis of the VAERS database 1990–2019 found that 58% of infant deaths reported to VAERS occurred within 3 days of vaccination, and 78% occurred within 7 days of vaccination.

A new research investigating the relationship between Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and the timing of vaccination, and based on the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) database found that 58% of infant deaths reported to VAERS between 1990 and 2019 occurred within 3 days of vaccination, and 78% occurred within 7 days of vaccination.

According to the National Center for Health Statistics (U.S. Government Printing, 1993) Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) is defined as “the sudden and unexpected death of an infant which remains unexplained after a thorough investigation, including performance of an autopsy and review of the clinical history. Although there are no specific symptoms associated with SIDS, an autopsy often reveals congestion and edema of the lungs and inflammatory changes in the respiratory system.”

New analysis entitled, “Vaccines and sudden infant death: An analysis of the VAERS database 1990–2019 and review of the medical literature” and published in the journal “Toxicology Reports” was conducted by Neil Z. Miller, Institute of Medical and Scientific Inquiry, Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA.

“Although there is considerable evidence”, Miller writes, “that a subset of infants has an increased risk of sudden death after receiving vaccines, health authorities eliminated “prophylactic vaccination” as an official cause of death, so medical examiners are compelled to misclassify and conceal vaccine-related fatalities under alternate cause-of-death classifications. In this paper, the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) database was analyzed to ascertain the onset interval of infant deaths post-vaccination. Of 2,605 infant deaths reported to VAERS from 1990 through 2019, 58% clustered within 3 days post-vaccination and 78.3 % occurred within 7 days post-vaccination, confirming that infant deaths tend to occur in temporal proximity to vaccine administration.”

“The excess of deaths during these early post-vaccination periods was statistically significant (p < 0.00001). A review of the medical literature substantiates a link between vaccines and sudden unexplained infant deaths. Several theories regarding the pathogenic mechanism behind these fatal events have been proposed, including the role of inflammatory cytokines as neuromodulators in the infant medulla preceding an abnormal response to the accumulation of carbon dioxide; fatal disorganization of respiratory control induced by adjuvants that cross the blood-brain barrier; and biochemical or synergistic toxicity due to multiple vaccines administered concurrently. While the findings in this paper are not proof of an association between infant vaccines and infant deaths, they are highly suggestive of a causal relationship.

“Prior to the introduction of organized vaccination programs, “crib death” (or “suffocation in bed”) was so rare that it was not mentioned in infant mortality statistics. In the United States, national immunization campaigns were expanded in the 1960s when several new vaccines were introduced and promoted. For the first time in history, most U.S. infants were required to receive several doses of DPT (diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus), polio, and measles vaccines. By 1972, SIDS had become the leading cause of post-neonatal mortality (infant deaths occurring between 28 days and 1 year of life) in the United States.”

“In 1973, the National Center for Health Statistics, operated by the CDC, created a new cause-of-death category to document deaths due to SIDS. In 1984, Congress held a hearing on vaccine safety. The suspected link between vaccines and sudden infant deaths was addressed. … Throughout the 1980s, sudden infant deaths continued to skyrocket. Parental concerns about an apparent link between childhood vaccines and SIDS reached a fever pitch. Many parents were afraid to vaccinate their babies. Authorities sought to reassure parents that vaccines are safe and claimed that sudden unexplained infant deaths (SUID) following vaccines were merely coincidental.”

“In the study presented here, the timing and distribution of sudden infant deaths post-vaccination were assessed. If no relationship exists between infant vaccines and sudden infant deaths, the expectation would be for SIDS cases to be evenly distributed each day rather than clustering in the early post-vaccination period (Day 1 through Day 7). To test this hypothesis, the VAERS database was analyzed to ascertain the onset interval of infant deaths post-vaccination.”

“There were 2,989 infant deaths reported to VAERS with a vaccination date from 1990 through 2019. Of this total, 2,605 (87.2%) occurred within 60 days. Males comprised 58.2% of this population, females made up 39.3%, and in 2.5 % the sex was unknown. … Of the 2605 infant deaths under consideration, 1048 (40.2 %) were labeled as SIDS, of which 60.5% were male, 37.8% were female, and in 1.7 % the sex was unknown. … Of the 2605 infant deaths, 58% clustered within 3 days post-vaccination and 78.3% within 7 days post-vaccination. The remaining deaths occurred between 8 days and 60 days post-vaccination.”

“The findings in this study revealed that infant deaths and SIDS cases were not randomly distributed each day. Instead, infant mortality and SIDS cases reported to VAERS tended to occur in temporal proximity to vaccine administration, that is, they clustered in the early post-vaccination period – Day 1 through Day 7. Excess deaths were significantly greater than expected (p < 0.00001).”

“Within both of the analyses – All Mortality and SIDS – approximately 60% of the victims were male. This is consistent with findings in other studies on SIDS throughout the world. Some evidence suggests that males are more susceptible to infant deaths because they are more likely to be delivered prematurely.” Miller also highlights that “there is additional evidence that delaying vaccinations until a later age could save babies from severe vaccine-related adverse reactions, including hospitalizations and sudden deaths”, and that:

Additive or synergistic toxicity may occur following multivalent vaccination.

Infant deaths post-vaccination are often misclassified as SIDS or “suffocation in bed”.

Inflammatory cytokines in the infant medulla act as neuromodulators causing prolonged apneas.

Adjuvants that cross the BBB (Blood-Brain Barrier) may induce fatal disorganization of respiratory control.

“Infants are not the only children at risk of sudden death.” Miller continues, “Sudden Unexplained Death in Childhood (SUDC) is now a leading cause of death in toddlers (children 1–4 years of age). Although hundreds of SUDC cases are certified by medical examiners each year – 392 cases were recorded by the CDC in 2018 – … experts disagreed with the original certified cause-of-death in 40% of cases, including many that were originally considered accidental or natural but adjudicated as “unexplained.” There is a low rate of consistency and precision in death certification of SUDC, so true SUDC incidence is likely to be higher than official rates reported by the CDC.”

“SIDS,” “suffocation in bed,” and death due to “unknown and unspecified causes,” are just three of the 130 official cause-of-death categories that might be concealing fatalities that were actually due to vaccination. Several other ICD categories – The International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD) by the World Health Organization (WHO) – are possible candidates for incorrect infant death classifications: unspecified viral diseases, diseases of the blood, diseases of the nervous system, unspecified diseases of the respiratory system, cardiac arrest, and shaken baby syndrome. All of these official categories may be repositories of vaccine-related infant deaths reclassified as common fatalities.”

Miller concludes: “There are 130 official ways for an infant to die, as categorized in the ICD, and one unofficial way for an infant to expire: from a fatal reaction to vaccines. When vaccine-related deaths are hidden within the death tables, it is difficult to monitor and prevent these deaths. In addition, parents are denied the ability to ascertain honest vaccine risk-to-benefit ratios and true informed consent to vaccination is not possible.”

“The findings in this paper must be weighed against the strengths and limitations of the available data and study design. While this paper does not prove an association between infant vaccines and sudden infant deaths, it reveals unusual patterns and safety signals highly suggestive of a causal relationship. Additional investigation is warranted.”
