A discontinued vaccine’s label has been found to list “autism” among a list of many side-effects. This label is taken directly from the FDA’s website and sourced appropriately.
Sanofi Pasteur’s Pertussis vaccine Tripedia, which is used to treat a whooping cough, was to be scheduled in children’s vaccinations five times over the course of seven years, starting as an infant. But the vaccine was removed from the market. Why? Well, possibly the label’s side-effects give us insight. In the instance of Tripedia, researchers admitted the vaccine did cause autism. The label is from 2005. Something tells me that research would never be listed again. Side-effects are only listed if they frequently occur, as stated in Tripedia’s insert.
Tripedia list “trace amount of thimerosal” as being included in the ingredients.
The CDC today announced that autism is not rising. They remain staunchly opposed to the idea that vaccines cause autism. But discoveries such as this one lend credibility to those the CDC labels as “anti-vaxxers” or “skeptics.” Researchers listing the drug’s side-effects as potentially “causing autism” removes any doubt that smoke is coming from a fire somewhere.
Adverse events reported during post-approval use of Tripedia vaccine include idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, SIDS, anaphylactic reaction, cellulitis, autism, convulsion/grand mal convulsion, encephalopathy, hypotonia, neuropathy, somnolence and apnea. Events were included in this list because of the seriousness or frequency of reporting. Because these events are reported voluntarily from a population of uncertain size, it is not always possible to reliably estimate their frequencies or to establish a causal relationship to components of Tripedia vaccine.
