Indian Study Reveals Birth Dose of Hepatitis B Vaccine Unnecessary

hepatitis B text

“We found birth dose was not needed as infection rates were the same regardless of birth dose.”
— Jacob Puliyel, MD

A study funded by Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) and published in the Indian Journal of Pediatrics was recently conducted by a group of pediatricians to examine if the birth dose of the hepatitis B vaccine is crucial for acquiring full immunity against hepatitis B infection.1

India first introduced the hepatitis B vaccine in 2006. Approximately 61 percent of Indian women give birth at home rather than in a healthcare facility, making it nearly impossible for healthcare providers to administer newborn vaccines. Given this reality, the Indian government’s policy is to give the hepatitis B vaccine at birth to the 39 percent of babies born in healthcare settings and to administer the first dose at six weeks for babies born at home.2

Hepatitis B is an infection of the liver caused by the hepatitis B virus. It can either be acute and self-resolving or chronic, possibly leading to liver cirrhosis.3 This virus spreads through contact with infected body fluids such as blood transfusions and unprotected sexual contact and can pass from mother to baby.1

Blood samples from 1- to 5-year old children from five states (Delhi, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Gujarat) were collected to measure antigen and antibodies of the hepatitis B virus. In this sample, 880 children were fully vaccinated with the hepatitis B vaccine starting at birth, 686 were fully vaccinated but without the birth dose of the hepatitis B vaccine and 844 were unvaccinated.4

The findings showed that children who were fully vaccinated with or without birth dose of the hepatitis B vaccine had similar levels of protection against the infection.1 The study’s lead author Jacob Puliyel, MD, who is a pediatrician at St. Stephens Hospital in Delhi stated:

We found birth dose was not needed as infection rates were the same regardless of birth dose. However, if the mother is a hepatitis B carrier especially if she is e-antigen positive, the baby must be vaccinated at birth.1

Dr. Puliyel added:

Studies must be replicable before they can be accepted. We now have two studies, one from South India and this one from North India showing that many babies have acquired passive immunity that may be protecting them soon after birth when they are most vulnerable to develop chronic hepatitis. Further, studies may be done to confirm these findings.1

The results of the study support the Indian government’s approach to vaccinate babies born at home at six weeks instead of at birth.

In the United States, since 1991 the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has recommended that all infants receive the hepatitis B vaccine on the first day of birth before leaving the newborn nursery.5 Women who give birth in U.S. hospitals and medical facilities are routinely screened for hepatitis B infection.

Although only babies born to hepatitis B infected mothers are at risk for hepatitis B infection at birth and have a 20 to 90 percent increased risk of becoming chronically infected with hepatitis B, every newborn is vaccinated whether the mother tests negative or positive.6 According to the CDC, this national policy was instituted to reduce the risk of a newborn contracting the disease from a mother who may not know she is infected with hepatitis B.5

    So….what is in these vaccines? There is no DNA virus in them, that’s impossible. There is no RNA virus in them. RNA passenger, associated, symbiant viruses are 1,000’s of times smaller than DNA virus and it is almost impossible to see them even with electromicroscopy. So the PCR test was touted as the standard after Kerri Mullis invented it in the early 90’s, to find these illusive devils. But turned out that all PCR test was good for was to detect fragments of what might have been a virus or ??? bacteria or ?? or what many scientists said was unrecognizable cellular debris. There is now no stopping this narrative of RNA virus disease or that viruses now can cause cancer (HPV)which would make cancer then contagious? Have you caught cancer from someone lately? Egregious corruption is upon the medical health industry and has fully metastasized. Nothing but deluded inane chicanery will be forthcoming as they blunder through disease after disease, misdiagnosing every step of the way.

    Hep B, C, D…etc.. all are false, i.e. not DNA viruses. They have never been isolated classically in full titer viremia in blood or tissue because they are RNA harmless passenger viruses, symbiants also called and pass in and out of cells all the time. Hep RNA virus are no different than any other RNA virus our bodies produce in the millions. Gallo used this trickery in the HIV scam, never isolated it in the blood or tissue of the first “AIDS” patients in millions of particles during infection. He refused to use Kochs Postulates as a gold standard to show that this “killer” virus was without doubt causing the destruction of T4 immune cells. But the AZT drugs were. In the Hep viruses we have the perfect deceptive claim: Drug users, alcoholics, fatty diets and hemophiliacs, whose livers are under assault and inflamed, test positive for Hep with a phony test that has no specific protein markers from a weak passenger virus that can’t be found in any quantity as compared to DNA virus – which are found in say Herpes in millions of particles – and then proclaimed Hep A or B or C or D. HIV uses the same phony test pretext. Liver inflammation and then cirrhosis are caused by well known factors and when those factors are changed, corrected, it is eradicated. Of course the goal in the Hep virus scam is to sell the drugs that do nothing or are iatrogenic and cause the very disease that the virus is being blamed for.

    It took a “study” to reveal this?!? What happened to common sense? What infant engages in sex or needle drug use?

    My son and his wife opt to vaccinate their infant daughter. I asked him to ask their pediatrician why on earth they immunize against Hep B at birth when neither parent has Hep B and they live in suburbia (U.S.). The answer? “To prepare their little systems for future immunizations.” What???

      Cynthia Reeves, it’s the same when Dr’s told my sister-in-law who was diagnosed with lung cancer that she HAD to have her brain radiated the same time they radiated the rest of her body, why? They said, “the cancer may spread there too.” She was dead within a week. I mean, murdered.

    and on the topic of vaccines given to babies—anyone with a brain NOT GETTING PAID realizes No vaccines should be given, let alone to defenseless babies. But again, to corps & the govs they control, IT’S A GOLD MINE, THEIR OWN ATMs. The only real question is WHY ISN’T IT A CRIME FOR WHICH THEY COULD BE HUNG BY THE NECK UNTIL SANE??? But we also know the answer is because those in power ARE TOTALLY CORRRUPTED. Hey, THEY might as well move to India.

    Folks [in India] rush to move in here, as Temp Visa workers and more. They’re taken over same failing industries–like job search agencies–making them impossibly incompetent.
    It was recently realized they’re responsible for many drug co’s having their junk made there, and the antibiotic combos are making folks immune. But the money to be made precludes anyone caring about health. CUSTOMERS, NOT CURES.

    “Indian Study Reveals Birth Dose of Hepatitis B Vaccine Unnecessary”

    Excuse me: everyone with a functioning brain already knew this and also that vaccination in general is an absolute fraud.

    Furthermore, even if vaccines really prevented diseases, they would still be useless in infants under the age of one, as their immune systems are incapable of processing vaccines in any meaningful manner.

    Mind you, this is also true for for anyone else, as except for the past two hundred years there has never been a time in millions of years of human evolution when idiots in while coats injected humans with highly toxic substances under the pretext of preventing diseases. So, when injected with a vaccine, the immune system would figuratively speaking throw up its hands in horror and exclaim WTF!!!???

    Sounds like insanity.Every hospital in the US injects these hep B poisons into a 1 hhour old child containing a massive dose of aluminum.You have to refuse in writing called opting out and then stand guard as the staff is so used to poisoning your child even you opting out they still POISON your 1 hour old infant

    As a society we have innumerable pre-birthing classes to produce a healthy baby. Why? To immediately start pumping these healthy babies with vaccines that they may not need. How long does it take to screen a mom for Hep B? We have more vaccines today than decades ago and yet our children are sicker. As long as the CDC is in bed with pharmaceutical companies their word/research can’t be trusted.
