TDaP during Pregnancy – the Healthy Home Economist
Hep B At Birth: Is It Worth It?
Recently Vaccinated Kids Are Spreading Pertussis (overview) by Barbara Loe Fischer, of NVIC
STUDY: Pregnant women vaccinated with TDaP experienced spontaneous abortions, as reported by VAERS. 22 of the 163 reported spontaneous abortions (note that TDaP is recommended during the third trimester)
STUDY: Pregnant Women Vaccinated against flu and A-H1N! had high rates of spontaneous abortions. There were 77.8 fetal loss reports per 1 million pregnant women vaccinated during the year two flu vaccines were recommended. There were only 6.8 fetal loss reports per 1 million pregnant women the year prior, when only one dose was recommended.
“CDC policy to vaccinate pregnant women with thimerisol-containing influenza vaccines is not supported by science. The CDC only cites two papers to support its claim that flu is more dangerous during pregnancy. Both papers failed to show the flu during pregnancy is more dangerous than any other time. CDC estimates on vaccine efficacy are not supported by scientific literature. In anotehr study vaccinted women were 4x more likely to be hospitalized for influenza-like illness than unvaccinated pregnant women. (per Miller’s Review)

Here is another synopsis of the study.
These studies show that DTaP DOES NOT PREVENT TRANSMISSION OF PERTUSSIS, but may decrease or alter symptoms.
- DTaP: Whooping Cough – asymptomatic carriers
- “Vaccination led to a 40-fold enhancement of B. parapertussis colonization in the lungs of mice.”
“these data suggest that the vaccine may be contributing to the observed rise in whooping cough incidence.”
- Acellular pertussis vaccines protect against disease but fail to prevent infection and transmission in a nonhuman primate model.
- Despite widespread vaccination, whooping cough incidence is on the rise worldwide… vaccination led to a 40-fold enhancement of B. parapertussis colonization in the lungs of mice… these data suggest that the vaccine may be contributing to the observed rise in whooping cough incidence over the last decade by promoting B. parapertussis infection.”
“Thus, we conclude that aP vaccination interferes with the optimal clearance of B. parapertussis and enhances the performance of this pathogen. Our data raise the possibility that widespread aP vaccination can create hosts more susceptible to B. parapertussis infection.” (Whooping Cough)
