Not only do these reports also show Hib vax failure, but they also include a boat load of possible vaccine-induced meningitis cases.

LI, thanks for that. I was just scrolling through and it's shocking to see all these reported cases of meningitis from a vaccine that supposedly protects against it. Unreal.

Not only are fully Hib-vaxed children getting Hib, but many fully Prevnar-vaxed children are getting pneumococcal too.

. . . and we don't even know the true incidence since most doctors don't even report vaccine failure b/c they don't consider it an adverse event.

Vaccine failure risk increased with Hib in combination with acellular pertussis

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - An increased incidence of Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) meningitis among British children born between 2000 and 2001 is associated with a switch in combination vaccine from one containing whole cell pertussis (DTwP-Hib) to one that containing acellular pertussis (DTaP-Hib).

MY NOTE: The DTaP/Hib (TriHiBit) vaccine licensed in the United States is not used for the Hib primary doses typically administered at 2, 4 and 6 months. It is used for the booster dose.

I'm glad that vax was one I never even considered for my ds1. If I didn't have it, I don't need to entertain the idea was my philosophy at the time many moons ago.

I'd love to print that off and mail it to our pedi!!!

I notice that a lot of the info on the VAERS is a vaccine from several years ago. Is there any way to get recent info??

You have to click on the last several pages for the most recent reports.

Did anyone else notice that these diseases are not listed as life threatening on the VAERS report. Curious.

Humor me as I am relatively new to this. Did 760 kids get meningitis from vaccines since 1987?

About 300 of those of those were from the HIB, right?
