Quackwatch on VAERS reports
VAERS deaths   Quackwatch

Quackwatch: "As for vaccines causing death, again so few deaths can plausibly be attributed to vaccines that it is hard to assess the risk statistically. Of all deaths reported to VAERS between 1990 and 1992, only one is believed to be even possibly associated with a vaccine."  http://www.quackwatch.com/03HealthPromotion/immu/immu04.html

VAERS database deaths 1990 (c. 70 deaths)

Between March 17, 1995 and July 25, 1998, 6580 adverse events - including 14 deaths - were reported to the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System in association with varicella vaccination---Pediatric News 33(3):12, 1999.

For DPT vaccine VAERS reports of 144 deaths per year (1990-1993)
"In a year-long investigation of the Vaccine Adverse Reaction Reporting System (VAERS) operated by the Food and Drug Administration, NVIC/DPT analyzed VAERS computer discs used by the FDA to store data on reports of deaths and injuries following DPT vaccination. A total of 54,072 reports of adverse events following vaccination were listed in a 39-month period from July 1990 to November 1993 with 12,504 reports being associated with DPT vaccine, including 471 deaths." Campaign Against Fraudulent Medical Research (CAFMR)

MMR vaccine VAERS reports 7 deaths per year (1990-1994):
"From July 1990 thro' April 1994, 5799 ADRs following MMR vaccination were reported to US Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS); including 3063 cases requiring emergency medical treatment, 616 hospitalisations, 309 who did not recover, 54 children left disabled and 30 deaths."--- John P Heptonstall

For Hep b vaccine there were VAERS reports of 54 deaths per year (1990-98)
"The total 24,775 VAERS hepatitis B reports from July 1990 to October 31, 1998 show 439 deaths and 9673 serious reactions involving emergency room visits, hospitalization, disablement or death."--Michael Belkin http://www.whale.to/vaccines/belkin1.html

For OPV vaccine there were VAERS reports of 108 deaths per year over a 5 year period.
"We commissioned an OPV Vaccine Report and started making all kinds of other inquires. The OPV Vaccine report that we received was a shocking report. It covered a recent period a little less than 5 years and the following is the summary for that period: The number of Vaccine Associated events that occurred: 13,641 ..The number of events resulting in death 540"--The Polio Connection of America & Polio vaccine victims: http://village.ios.com/~w1066/poliov6.html

"Since July 1990, 17,497 cases of hospitalizations, injuries and deaths in America following hepatitis B vaccination have been reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) of the U.S. government. This figure includes 146 deaths in individuals after receiving only hepatitis B vaccine without any other vaccines, including 73 deaths in children under 14 years old.   In 1996 alone there were 872 serious adverse events in children under 14 years old reported to VAERS. 658 of those injuries were following hepatitis B vaccination in combination with other vaccinations and 214 of these injuries were after hepatitis B vaccination alone. In these children under 14 years old, there were 35 deaths after hepatitis B vaccination in combination and 13 deaths after hepatitis B vaccination alone, for a total of 48 deaths. Compare these statistics with the total number of hepatitis B cases nationwide reported that same year (1996) in children under 14, just 279, and the conclusion is obvious that the risks of hepatitis B vaccination far outweigh its benefits."---Incao's Hepatitis B Vaccination Testimony

For smallpox vaccine from 1924-1963 it was 20 deaths per year http://www.whale.to/m/encephalitis.html

NVICP has paid out for 50 deaths per year:
The US Federal Government's National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) has paid out over 724.4 million dollars to parents of vaccine injured and killed children, in taxpayer dollars. The NVICP has received over 5000 petitions since 1988, including over 700 for vaccine-related deaths, and there are still over 2800 total death and injury cases pending that may take years to resolve (NVICP, Health Resources and Services Administration).

Dr Geraghty claims 100 DPT death per year in 1984:
"Dr. Kevin Geraghty, Bay Area Physicians for the Study of Pertussis Vaccines:   "I'm convinced in my heart of hearts that 100 American infants a year are dying and another 250 are brain-damaged from DPT. I would be prepared to clinically defend that to scientists." Geraghty http://www.whale.to/vaccines/fresno.html

The Lubeck disaster, 1930
"Between 10 December 1929 and 30 April 1930, 251 of 412 infants born in the old Hanseatic town of Lubeck received three doses of BCG vaccine by the mouth during the first ten days of life. Of these 251, 72 died of tuberculosis, most of them in two to five months and all but one before the end of the first year. In addition, 135 suffered from clinical tuberculosis but eventually recovered; and 44 became tuberculin-positive but remained well. "---Sir Graham Wilson (Hazards of Immunisation p66)
