Gov’t Admits Rotavirus Vaccine Causes Intussusception, Adds It to Injury Compensation Program

Because the Obama administration quietly announced their plans for 3,400-plus new regulations last week just after Ferguson erupted and just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday, a lot of what’s actually going on in that rather long list was already lost and forgotten pretty much the moment it was released.

One regulation worth mentioning has to do with rotavirus vaccines and a condition called intussusception.

Intussusception is a serious condition where part of the intestine slides into an adjacent part of the intestines, and it is the most common abdominal emergency to hit kids under the age of two. Usually the intestines become blocked. This results in the veins becoming compressed, the intestines swelling, and ultimately, obstruction. Reduced blood flow can actually kill the affected intestine, causing it to become gangrenous. Intussusception can cause internal bleeding, and it can even cause the intestine to rupture. Symptoms include cramps and abdominal pain which for infants seems like a colicky reaction, vomiting, and lack of appetite. Failure to catch this condition early or misdiagnosis can lead to death.

Babies under a year old are most susceptible to intussusception.

One of 3,415 new rules (which surely should’ve been in place when rotavirus vaccines first began being administered) officially adds intussusception to the Vaccine Injury Table for rotavirus vaccines under the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program.

The rule states:

The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program allows a family of a child, a person, or their estate to receive monetary compensation if they experience a vaccine-related injury or death after receiving a covered vaccine. Currently, no adverse event is listed on the Vaccine Injury Table for rotavirus vaccines. However, recent data point to a small risk of intussusception, and the rule amends the Vaccine Injury Table to provide for this adverse event. 

The rotavirus vaccine is administered at two, four, and six months of age in combination with other vaccines.

According to the VAERS Database at the time of writing this article, of the nearly 11,000 adverse events reported in children under three after receiving a rotavirus vaccine, there are 532 incidents listed where a child under the age of 3 received a rotavirus vaccine and later presented with intussusception. (Note: there were actually 542 cases, but age was unknown in 10 of them.)

The United States currently has the most aggressive vaccination schedule in the whole world. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends we shoot up our infants up with 26 shots by age one, and then ten more shots before age five.

Considering what ends up reported in the VAERS Database is only a teeny tiny window into the true number of side effects suffered by patients who are administered vaccines (as most people aren’t even aware the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System even exists to report side effects to in the first place), coupled with the fact that the government has basically been forced to list intussusception as a side effect, this is yet another vaccine risk parents need to be aware of.

The World Health Organization officially recommended rotavirus vaccines be included in all national immunization programs in 2009. Only two rotavirus vaccines are approved for infants in the U.S.: Merck’s RotaTeq and GlaxoSmithKline’s Rotarix.

This particular vaccine has always stood out as especially controversial considering both its revolving door, conflict-of-interest origins and the fact that the FDA admitted in 2010 these vaccines were contaminated with DNA from two pig viruses.
