The vaccination madness continues. The UK is now pushing pregnant women to get yet another whooping cough vaccine to prevent whooping cough. But that use is not approved by the manufacturer!

The UK is currently on a massive campaign to pressure pregnant women into getting a pertussis vaccination. They say it will prevent whooping cough after their babies are born.
What they don’t tell pregnant women is that the vaccine’s manufacturer clearly states in the insert that it’s not for use on pregnant women.
Here’s what the UK’s Department of Health has to say about pregnancy and the Repevax vaccine:
Women who become pregnant again while the programme is in place should be offered immunisation during each pregnancy to maximise the level of antibodies that they pass on to their infants. Pregnant women who have received immunisation against pertussis, tetanus, diphtheria and/or polio relatively recently should be offered immunisation. Cumulative doses may increase the likelihood of injection site reactions or fever, but this is far outweighed by the expected benefits.
Not only do they say it’s okay to have it during pregnancy, but to go ahead and have it again even if she’s had it recently!
Here’s what Repevax’s manufacturer, Sanofi Pasteur MSD, states in its package insert:
Tell your doctor or nurse if you or your child is pregnant or breast-feeding, think you or your child might be pregnant or planning to have a baby. Your doctor or nurse can advise you whether or not vaccination should be delayed. The use of REPEVAX is not recommended during pregnancy. [Emphasis mine.]
The Department of Health goes on to state that Repevax has been given to pregnant women in other countries and that it has not resulted in harm. What they don’t state is which countries and whether there were any studies showing a lack of harm. However, one would think that, if there were studies showing it to be safe during pregnancy—even bad ones—the manufacturer would not have issued this warning.
Let’s take a look at what’s in Sanofi Pasteur’s Repevax:
It contains several antigens for four different diseases:
- Pertussis toxoid
- Filamentous hemagglutenin
- Fimbriae types 2 and 3
Inactivated poliomyelitis virus
- Type 1
- Type 2
- Type 3
Repevax contains a total of nine different antigens, all injected in a single vaccination!
Repevax contains aluminum, which is rapidly being shown in scientific studies to be extremely dangerous in vaccines and a likely cause of autism, other developmental disorders, and autoimmune disorders.
It contains phenoxyethanol, which is noted as being toxic to organs. Japan restricts its use in cosmetics. The European Union restricts its use to low exposures in the workplace.
It also contains polysorbate 80, which is has been shown to cause ovarian deformities, degenerative follicles, hormonal changes, and womb and vaginal changes in rats.
The UK government is pushing pregnant women to get vaccinated with not just one, but nine antigens at one time in an injection that also includes aluminum, known to induce autoimmune disorders, phenoxyethanol, known to be toxic to organs, and polysorbate 80, which is known to cause severe harm to women’s reproductive function.
They justify it by saying that it hasn’t been shown to cause harm in pregnant women, in spite of a lack of actual studies demonstrating that claim.
Just how much harm are we willing to accept from vaccines? Yes, it’s true that babies can die from whooping cough. However, it’s also true that the vaccine itself has resulted in a more virulent kind of whooping cough, one that’s ten times more deadly that the original, as has been documented by Gaia Health. So, it’s not only possible, it’s likely that infants who do contract whooping cough are ten times more likely to die of it now than they were before the vaccine.
Is it rational to follow such an edict from your government in the face of a lack of evidence of safety and strong evidence of immense harm?
