Manufacturer: Sanofi Pasteur MSD Generic name: Measles, mumps and rubella vaccine (live) MMRVaxPro Safety Sanofi Pasteur says that MMRVaxPro has a similar safety profile to a predecessor vaccine, implying that this means it must be safe. They also recorded adverse reactions to MMRVaxPro in 1,940 children (they omitted any that happened to fewer than 4 children, which they call “isolated reports” (I would comment that 4 children out of 1,940 still matter) and found mainly minor side-effects. Among the more serious ones were aseptic meningitis, encephalitis and encephalopathy, subacute sclerosing panencephalitis, arthralgia and arthritis. However, they stress that either the vaccine wasn’t proven to be the cause or else that they were very rare events.[1] The UK Yellow Card scheme has recorded over 8,000 reports and 28 deaths relating to MMR vaccines but this data covers a 27 year period and there is no certainty that the vaccines really caused these fatalities. Yet conversely, under-reporting means that the true incidence rate could be one hundred times higher. 9 out of the 38 fatalities were recorded simply as death, sudden death or sudden infant death. It is not unreasonable to suggest that the vast majority of SIDs will never be reported as vaccine related, even if they happened soon after vaccination. On the US VAERS database, MMR vaccines make up 15% of the entire database of adverse reactions. Most of them were classed as “not serious”. 324 were for deaths and over 1000 each for “life threatening” or “permanent disability”. Once again this data does not prove that vaccines were responsible in all cases but neither does it reflect the true number of cases due to under-reporting. It only tells us that MMR vaccines are  one of the most reported vaccine types on the database. MMRVaxPro Efficacy According to the manufacturer,…
