India:Polio VAC causes higher rate Polio than without VAC

" As the World Health Organization lies through its pharma stoked teeth claiming a polio-free India in an attempt to con the public, it is deliberately evading the fact that not only is vaccine-induced polio spreading without check in India, but also the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Nigeria, Congo, Somalia and Ethiopia to name but six other countries besides. Vaccine-induced polio is no respecter of borders, just as the WHO is no respecter of truth. Children are becoming paralysed from the very vaccine that is supposed to protect them in India and everywhere else. This is one of the great vaccine scandals of the decade and growing every year. Courage to those doctors and journalists reporting it."

Flip side of India’s polio success story

- Country needs to pencil strategy to fight infection triggered by vaccine itself, say experts

New Delhi, Jan. 15: India’s health ministry, celebrating a year of freedom from wild polio, now faces a dilemma that public health experts had predicted years ago: the very vaccine it is using to fight polio is causing more polio paralysis than the wild poliovirus.

India observed last Thursday as a milestone, marking a full year without polio caused by a wild poliovirus.

But surveillance data show that last year, seven children in India developed polio from vaccine-derived poliovirus (VDPV), the medical term for a virus from the oral polio vaccine (OPV) that has regained the ability to cause disease.

Such infections occur when virus from the OPV, after being excreted by vaccinated children, regains neuro-virulence and the ability to circulate in the environment and strikes other vulnerable children.

Public health experts also estimate that between 100 and 180 children in India develop vaccine-associated polio paralysis (VAPP) each year, a rare but serious side effect of the OPV they had received to protect them from the wild poliovirus. As opposed to VDPV infection, VAPP affects the vaccinated children themselves.

“Our war on polio isn’t over,” said T. Jacob John, a former head of virology at the Christian Medical College, Vellore.
