Anti-Vaxx: Decline the HepB Vaccine

Although doctors are going to suggest newborns getting the HepB (Hepatitis B) vaccine, I’ll say I disagree.  And you can determine for yourself if your child needs the vaccine before birth.

HepB is transfered:

  • Sexual contact
  • Blood transfusions
  • Contaiminated needles/syringes
  • Childbirth

The vaccine is intended to protect the child from the mother during the process of childbirth.  Adults do not need to worry (much) about HepB because they will clear out the infection without help.

Newborns may have a chance as low as 5% of being able to clear the infection, and children as low as 30%.  And if they can’t, they will have a 40% lifetime risk of death from cirrhosis or hepatocellular carcinoma.

The estimated efficacy in prevention of chronic hepatitis B infection was 95% as compared to the infection rate in untreated historical controls.{5}

So if you are pregnant, or have a child you should get tested to determine the risk is that you will pass hepB. The test is simple, and will determine your immune state, and infected state.  You can use this information to determine if you will give your newborn the vaccine.

HepB Vaccine:

  • 5 mcg of hepatitis B surface antigen
  • All formulations contain approximately 0.5 mg of aluminum
  • 1% yeast protein
  • The vaccine contains <15 mcg/mL residual formaldehyde

Aluminum may be even more toxic than mercury.

With three doses of 0.5mg each, the HepB vaccine is, so far, the vaccine with the biggest amount of heavy metals that I’ve ran accross.
