BABY FIGHTS FOR LIFE AFTER TB VACCINE OVERDOSE
Probe at Scunthorpe Hospital Tuesday March 9,2010 By Paul Jeeves
A NEWBORN baby is fighting for his life after a junior doctor gave him 10
times the normal dose of a TB vaccine.
The boy was injected with 0.5mg of the BCG vaccine instead of the usual
0.05mg dose. The child, who has not been identified, is now being treated
for tuberculosis by specialists at Sheffield Children's Hospital.
Last night his condition was "stable". NHS chiefs at Scunthorpe General
Hospital, where the overdose was administered, say they have launched "a
But the boy's distraught parents, from Scunthorpe, have instructed medical
negligence solicitors to act on their behalf.
Last night lawyers at Irwin Mitchell admitted they were also investigating
reports that other children had been given vaccine overdoses at the same
David Body, a medical law specialist at the nationwide firm, said: "The BCG
vaccine works by injecting a small dose of weakened bacteria, which
stimulates the body's immune system to build up its natural defences.
Treatment for TB has been started.
"TB is a life-threatening illness for people of any age and is far more
serious for a newborn baby."
The Northern Lincolnshire and Goole Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust said: "As
soon as we were made aware of the incident we launched a full investigation,
which is ongoing."
Baby in Britain is overdosed with BCG vaccine and is now being treated for
March 11, 2010
A catalogue of horror stories in our newspapers may leave many parents
feeling anxious as to whether those vaccinating our children are really fit
to do so, especially after one baby became ill after being overdosed with
ten times the amount of tuberculosis vaccine.
The baby who is currently being treated in Sheffield children's hospital in
England UK, with antibiotics used to treat tuberculosis is now said to be
out of danger.
Dr David Elliman consultant in community child health at Great Ormond Street
Hospital told the Telegraph that
"It is not possible to catch TB from the BCG vaccine."
I find this very difficult to believe considering the fact that this newborn
is now being treated with drugs for TB. The law firm Irwin Mitchell is
calling for a hospital to investigate why a newborn baby has been left
receiving treatment for a potentially serious illness, after it was
discovered that it was a junior doctor who prescribed and administered ten
times the required dose of a BCG vaccine.
Medical error involving vaccines is not uncommon. Also reported this week is
another shocking account of children in Pakistan receiving a batch of out of
date vaccines. It transpired that a quantity of expired vaccines for measles
was given to children in one area of Pakistan leaving 33 children with
adverse reactions. The Daily Times for Pakistan say that the health
department staff administered the expired vaccine to the children during the
anti-measles campaign and at least 33 children experienced serious reactions
such as fainting diarrhoea and skin diseases.
In January of this year staff at one school went to the school nurse fully
expecting to receive the shot for swine flu and instead they received a
vaccine of insulin. While the staff seem to have suffered no long-term
damage from mistakenly receiving the insulin injections, investigations are
ongoing to determine what caused the medical error. It appears that the
school nurse was responsible and she has been temporarily suspended until a
full investigation has been carried out. Read fully story in ABC News report
These are by no means isolated incidents as last year the Daily Mail
discovered that nearly 1,000 safety incidents were reported of children
either getting the wrong vaccine of being overdosed with a vaccine they had
The report by Breezy Marsh and Jo McFarlane stated that-
"A report by the National Patient Safety Agency (NPSA), the watchdog which
monitors NHS errors, looked at 949 incidents involving jabs reported in
2007. A detailed study was made of 138 of these cases, picked at random.
Eight caused children �moderate harm�.
In 36 per cent of cases a child was given the wrong vaccination. If the
sample is representative, it means that hundreds are given the wrong
immunisation every year. And, as the reporting of incidents by medical
professionals is voluntary, the true number could be much higher.
In 23 per cent of incidents there were errors in documenting the vaccine,
while there were delays in 17 per cent of cases. Other problems included
incorrect storage of the jabs or out-of-date vaccines having to be thrown
So can we really trust those administering the vaccines that are given to
our children? Clearly not, as error after error is being reported worldwide.
Jeff Audfderheide from VacTruth.com a website dedicated to vaccine adverse
reactions and educating the public said:-
"Intelligent people need to draw the line somewhere and an incident
involving a newborn is a great place to start. What happened to this new
born should tip parents off to ask more questions of their pediatrician. Dr.
Paul Offit, who wields enormous influence with pediatricians, believes that
children can safely receive 10,000 vaccines. Yet, here we have another child
losing their immune tolerance by receiving too much vaccine for his little
body to handle."
Jeff is right as these vaccines are full of preservatives and adjuvants
which include heavy metals.
A tiny babies body is not equipped to cope with these toxins and this is
worrying many professionals. One such professional is Leslie Carol Botha who
is a journalist and Health Activist and editor of the Womans Health website
Holy Hormones Honey she is currently advocating to green our vaccines. She
is appalled by what she feels is the overdose of toxins given to very young
and premature babies. She says:-
"In the United States - heavy metals used as adjuvants in each individual
vaccine meet EPA standards and guidelines. What the public is not aware of -
and physicians should be is that when more than one vaccine is administered
at the same time, those guidelines are exceeded at dangerous levels. What
the public is also not aware that vaccines administered to infants are at
the same level as those administered for adults. An infant's neurological
and immune system are not fully developed at birth.
Furthermore, and most disturbing is that guidelines for vaccination for
premature infants are the same as guidelines for full term babies. In other
words if a baby is born 4 weeks early, he/she will still be administered
vaccinations on the same schedule as a full term infant. A premature
infant's neurological and immune system is even less developed and less able
to handle the influx of toxins to the system - than a "normal" infant. This
alone predisposes the "preemie" to additional medical/neurological problems.
One other factor that is not taken into consideration is the fact that our
environment has become laden with toxic heavy metals. Many of these toxins
are passed from mother to infant in utero. So at birth, an infant has
already been contaminated with toxins - as noted with the high rise in
autism across the world. Introducing more chemical toxins into an infant's
already stressed body is a recipe for disaster.
The vaccination industry has not changed it's guidelines for developing
vaccine in over 70 years. Basically, the same processes are used - even
though our environment and nutritional sources have changed - and their
quality declined. It is time that the industry - develop "safe vaccines" -
vaccines without adjuvants that can cause neurological damage. The
technology is there - and it is being used by the pharmaceutical companies
to "test" vaccines. It is now time to apply this "green vaccine technology"
to the public. It is in our best interest - and protects the health and
safety of our newborns."
She has stressed to me personally in an interview that doctors promote
healthy eating, they promote better lifestyles and yet the are prepared to
inject highly toxic substances such as mercury and aluminium into the
bloodstreams of newborn infants.
A BCG vaccine contains the following ingredients
BCG Type of vaccine: Single live BCG vaccine Manufacturer: Statens Serum
Institut Protects against: Tuberculosis (TB) Active ingredients:
100,000-800.000 live units of Mycobacterium bovis BCG, Danish strain 1331
per vaccine Mercury content: Nil Aluminium content: Nil Other ingredients:
Magnesium sulphate heptahydrate
Citric acid monohydrate
Ferric ammonium citrate
Looking at these ingredients contained in just one childhood vaccine, it is
frightening to imagine what an overdose could do to a tiny body and yet this
is what is happening in our hospitals, GP surgeries and clinics today. It is
easy to see why Leslie and professionals like her are saying that we are
poisoning our children with no possible way of knowing what the outcome will

No he isn't, he is apparently perfectly well.

No he isn't. He did not, and does not have tuberculosis. He was
being treated with Isoniazid which is the standard treatment for BCG
overdose to prevent localised infection.
This story appears to be another by the factually challenged Christina
England of the anti-vaccination web site vactruth who seems to be
trying hard to work her way up to qualify for a job with the "Sunday
