This is what our wonderful govenment tells us in easy to find documents
http://www.fda.gov/bbs/topics/NEWS/NEW00716.html

This is the actual results of the study.

There's a bunch of stuff in this study about the pneumococcal vaccine not being worse than other vaccines- which actually does have some statistical viability.

I brought this study to a physics professor (I'm an engineer and was pretty sure the data was meaningless but wanted to confirm). Physicists are great at statistical analysis. This was his verbatim response when I presented the efficacy results.

Celeste;

I hate to say this but as usual with medical data the article does not
state enough to give the numbers context. Those numbers have no units,
no definition, nothing from which to take any concrete meaning.
Medical data has become a joke in some circles because the statistics
never include enough info to mean anything-- even in the technical
publications.
So our FDA and CDC are recommending we inject our children with now it is aluminum phosphate instead of thimerisol, animal gelatin, and who knows what else in trace amounts,-- BASED ON A MEANINGLESS STUDY THAT THE VACCINE IS EFFECTIVE!!!

This is the only vaccine I have looked this closely at, but I surely do not trust the FDA/CDC after finding what they base their recomendations on for one.

The data I am referring to is the data in Table 1. The rest is about prevnar not being worse than other vaccines - or rather not making the adverse effects of other vaccines worse.

Oh as a note Wyeth makes 2.8 billion a year on this vaccine

Does anyone else have the results of efficacy studies of other vaccines. I would be interested.

Has a whole section on efficacy and also risk factors. Use the left-hand column links for the different vaxes/diseases.

vaccine injury is preventable

Well, yes, the above link does republish what the manufactures state based on thier studies, ie. the one Wyeth did that is not statistically significant. But does anyone have sceintific evidence (statistically significant evidence) that any of the recommended vaccines actually work? I mean there have got to be doctors or mathematicians somewhere who have looked at the actual studies and can tell us which of the vaccines are proven effective.

I have been able to locate the actual results that Wyeth gave the FDA and they are just simply not viable scientific results.
