Acute Hepatitis B Among Children and Adolescents — United States, 1990–2002
Now, follow the numbers here–it’s akin to a very well done shell game. The CDC had 13,829 reported cases of Hep B in children under 19 from 1990-2002. That’s an average of 1,152 per year. Of these cases, a mere 19 were followed up and confirmed. Here’s were the numbers get even more interesting. Only 11 were born here in the US. At least 3 had at least one Hep B vaccination dose. No mention anywhere of whether mom or another family member was Hep B positive. So, based on these staggering and vaccine-affirming numbers, we force vaccination on brand new babies with a vaccine that has been linked to an increase in MS and doesn’t last even 5 years in many cases. At what point to we begin to interject common sense?
