During our September 18 debate, Spectrum TV host Renee Eng asked Kaiser’s, Dr. Robert Riewerts, how many vaccine injuries he had seen during his 30 years as a Pediatrician. His answer: “None, not a single one.”
Slide 1. A 2010 HHS pilot study by the AHCR.
Slide 1 shows a 2010 U.S. Health and Human Services (HHS) pilot study by the Federal Agency for Health Care Research (AHCR) to test the efficiency of a state-of-the-art machine counting (AI) system on data records from the Harvard Pilgrim HMO. Those government researchers found that 2.6% of vaccination resulted in injuries—a ratio one for every 39 vaccines administered. The same study found that typical clinicians see 1.3 vaccine injuries per month.
Slide 2. A table from HHS’s 2016 Neiss-Cades survey published in JAMA
Slide 2 is a table from HHS’s 2016 Neiss-Cades survey published in JAMA reporting an astonishing 19.5% of children under five who are admitted to emergency rooms for drug reactions are suffering vaccine injuries. This finding certainly represents an undercount since pediatric hospitals, which treat most serious injuries, were badly underrepresented in the database, (Only six of 63 hospitals surveyed).
How is it then that Dr. Riewerts has given thousands of vaccines and never seen an injury?
Medical schools—largely funded by Pharma, do not teach doctors to recognize vaccine injuries, and indoctrinate pediatricians to believe such injuries don’t exist. CDC tells doctors that vaccine injury is vanishingly rare. Therefore, Pediatricians like Dr. Riewerts whose patients suffer vaccine injury like seizures, epilepsy, allergies, autoimmune and neurological injuries, or SIDS, are likely to dismiss those incidents as “sad coincidences” unrelated to vaccines and never report them to VAERS.
Slide 3. AHCR confirmed these assessments, finding that “fewer than 1% of vaccine injuries were reported.
Indeed, HHS commissioned the AHCR pilot study in response to criticism that vaccine injuries were horribly underreported. AHCR confirmed these assessments, finding that “fewer than 1% of vaccine injuries were reported.”
