Vaccine: Hepatitus B

A child or teenager can get hepatitis B:

By coming in contact with an infected person’s blood or body fluids

Example: By an infected woman to her newborn during pregnancy or childbirth

By sharing toothbrushes, razors, or needles of an infected person

By human bites

By sexual contact with an infected person

By ear piercing, body piercing, or tattooing with unsterile equipment

Vaccination Schedule

A baby is vaccinated with the Hepatitus B vaccine three times by the age of 15 months of age–at birth, by two months  and again by fifteen months. (Source: https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/schedules/hcp/imz/child-adolescent.html#birth-15)

What is hepatitis B?

Hepatitis B is contagious liver infection that can be long lasting. For more details visit the Hepatitus B Foundation website.

What are the ingredients in a hepatitis B vaccine?

According to the RECOMBIVAXHB Hepatitus B vaccine package insert, “RECOMBIVAXHB HepatitisB Vaccine (Recombinant) is a sterile suspension of non-infectious subunit viral vaccine derived from HBsAg produced in yeast cells. A portion of the hepatitisB virus gene, coding for HBsAg, is cloned into yeast, and the vaccine for hepatitisB is produced from cultures of this recombinant yeast strain according to methods developed in the Merck Research Laboratories.

“The antigen is harvested and purified from fermentation cultures of a recombinant strain of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiaecontaining the gene for the adwsubtype of HBsAg. The fermentation process involves growth of Saccharomyces cerevisiaeon a complex fermentation medium which consists of an extract of yeast, soy peptone, dextrose, amino acids and mineral salts. The HBsAg protein is released from the yeast cells by cell disruption and purified by a series of physical and chemical methods. The purified protein is treated in phosphate buffer with formaldehyde and then coprecipitated with alum (potassium aluminum sulfate) to form bulk vaccine adjuvanted with amorphous aluminum hydroxyphosphate sulfate. Each dose contains less than 1% yeast protein. The vaccine produced by the Merck method has been shown to be comparable to the plasma-derived vaccine in terms of animal potency (mouse, monkey, and chimpanzee) and protective efficacy (chimpanzee and human).

“The vaccine against hepatitisB, prepared from recombinant yeast cultures, is free of association with human blood or blood products.”

According to the ENGERIX-B Hepatitus B vaccine insert, “ENGERIX-B [Hepatitis B Vaccine (Recombinant)] is a sterile suspension of noninfectious hepatitis B virus surface antigen (HBsAg) for intramuscular administration. It contains purified surface antigen of the virus obtained by culturing genetically engineered Saccharomyces cerevisiaecells, which carry the surface antigen gene of the hepatitis B virus. The HBsAg  expressed in the cells is purified by several physicochemical steps and formulated as a suspension of the antigen adsorbed on aluminum hydroxide. The procedures used to manufacture ENGERIX-B result in a product that contains no more than 5% yeast protein. Each 0.5-mL pediatric/adolescent dose contains 10 mcg of HBsAg adsorbed on 0.25 mg aluminum as aluminum hydroxide. Each 1-mL adult dose contains 20 mcg of HBsAg adsorbed on 0.5 mg aluminum as aluminum hydroxide. ENGERIX-B contains the following excipients: Sodium chloride (9 mg/mL) and phosphate buffers (disodium phosphate dihydrate, 0.98 mg/mL; sodium dihydrogen phosphate dihydrate, 0.71 mg/mL).

Studies to prove safety and efficacy:

The Engerix-B Hepatitus B vaccine insert discloses that there have been thirty-six studies, involving 5,071 healthy adults and children.All subjects were monitored for 4 days post-administration. (Source: See line 144 on the Engerix Hepatitus B vaccine insert. You may wish to keep reading, at least to line 170.)

YOU show me a study. “4 Days”?!!

Why vaccinate children with the Hepatitus B vaccine?

“The hepatitis B vaccination mandate-not primarily for the benefit of young children, and inadequately tested for their safety-has failed to honor young children’s liberty, equal protection, and health. On the CDC’s record, there was no clear medical rationale for introducing the vaccine for young children. The apparent explanation for the dramatic turnaround in federal vaccination recommendation was financial, not medical.” 1

If you’re sincerely protecting your child then you may wish to read Mary Holland’s article listed in the footnote below. Consider your newborn not being vaccinated with this useless shot. Consider and investigate and consider again.

“Contempt, prior to complete investigation, enslaves men to ignorance.”

Dr. John Whitman Ray

Condemnation without investigation is the height of ignorance” – Albert Einstein

Condescending? Actually, no. Just addressing those who contemptuously condemns others who make the effort to learn the other side of the story.

The following is a little irrelevant. But, maybe not too much:

Everybody Experiences Pressure To Be Somebody Else

If a doctor, your doctor, realizes that he, or she, doesn’t know everything, then he/she knows they aren’t God and will follow these instructions given by Polonius to his son Laertes in Shakespear’s play, Hamlet:

This above all: to thine own self be true,

And it must follow, as the night the day,

Thou canst not then be false to any man.

Consider this thought, “… shouldn’t doctors also share their ignorance with patients? As somebody who now is more an informed patient than a proper doctor, I believe they should listen to you. It may seem wrong and conceited to share uncertainty with patients, but the alternative is not knowledge but false certainty. And another word for false certainty may be ‘lie.’”
