Alfie Evans Being Murdered To Deny Vaccine Payout Is False

Alfie Evans, BBC

UPDATE: A previous version of this post accused the Facebook profile primarily spreading the rumor of being a fake profile. Autism Investigated was subsequently contacted by the person behind the profile who confirmed that that was not true. This post has been altered to reflect that fact. Autism Investigated regrets the error and apologizes to the person previously named.

UPDATE II: Autism Investigated has contacted Jackie Fletcher. She confirmed that the compensated child developed the adverse reaction before age two but subsequently died later in life. This article has been rewritten to reflect that fact. Autism Investigated regrets the error and thanks the readers for the new information. Additionally, the article has also been updated to reflect the fact that Alfie Evans has just tragically passed away. May this poor child rest in peace. Deepest condolences to his parents.

The conflict between an English hospital and parents of a terminally ill child named Alfie Evans has captivated anti-vaccinationist and vaccine skeptical communities alike. Posts of outrage adorn such groups, fueling bitter infighting and personal attacks. Origin of the rage is a rumor that the hospital is deliberately killing the child before his second birthday so that his parents could never be eligible for vaccine damage payment. And it was simply untrue.

The parents have yet to even confirm an adverse vaccine reaction in the child. When vaccination causes death, the reaction is often noticed well before.

A good example has been described in BMJ by Jackie Fletcher, founder of JABS and a parent who was compensated by the Vaccine Damage Payment Unit:

During the first week of the new MMR campaign in 1988 an eighteen month old infant was given it, started with severe convulsions and subsequently died during a seizure [later in life]. This child was one of a number of children awarded Government recognition of MMR vaccine-damage through vaccine damage payments following medical assessment of the individual cases.

The child was noticeably damaged by the vaccine, later died because of the vaccine, and then the government compensated for that loss. No such history has surfaced for Alfie Evans.

The hospital did not deliberately murder him to deny his parents vaccine damage compensation. Suggesting so reflects poorly on them too. Who wants to be accused of keeping their child alive for payout? Is that what anti-vaxxers seriously want to imply?

Even though death before age two does make one ineligible, the British government still wouldn’t murder this child for £120,000. They just wouldn’t compensate that much, which already isn’t much.

Regardless, this is a tragic story of a young child whose life was cut way too short.

ALL MMR VAX BACKERS CAUSE AUTISM AND MEASLES


There is no available measles vaccine, only the MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccine. The former prevents measles, the latter causes measles to linger in the guts of children who developed autism and GI disease as a result of MMR. Measles has made a comeback in the US and UK because there is no measles vaccine available – just the MMR which every child should be protected from. Below is a nearly 20-year old story about the withdrawal of the measles vaccine in the UK by the manufacturer because of – get this – high demand for its use. That demand followed publication of exonerated Dr. Andrew Wakefield’s paper on MMR-injured children. Former CDC director Dr. Tom Frieden is complicit in covering up their injuries.

Measles jab withdrawn due to ‘high demand’

PARENTS CONCERNED about inoculating their children with the controversial triple vaccine MMR will be forced to travel to Europe if they want a single measles vaccination, it was revealed yesterday.

The company that makes the single measles vaccine said it was withdrawing it from sale in Britain because it could not meet demand.

From now on parents will have only the option of using MMR, which has been linked by one study, published in the medical journal The Lancet, to autism and bowel disease.

Last night Pasteur Merieux MSD, the Paris-based company that makes both the triple and single vaccines, said the single vaccine had been available in Britain on a named-patient basis only.

“That meant it was only available to a very small number of people,” said Dr Veronique Maguin, the company’s marketing director.

“As demand grew we had to make an ethical decision about who the drug should be available to. It was a problem for the company because we could not satisfy everybody. Our main concern is one of public health and we felt we could not satisfy everybody.”

There has been a huge increase in demand for the single measles injection since the report last February in The Lancet on MMR, which also inoculates against mumps and rubella.

While a subsequent report published by the Medical Research Council found no evidence of the link, many parents remain suspicious of the triple vaccine and want to see more research carried out into its possible side- effects.

Some believe that receiving all three vaccines at once has a negative effect on the immune system.

Ann Coote, a founder member of the pressure group Jabs – Justice, Awareness, and Basic Support – said she was astounded the company was withdrawing the single vaccine.

“It does seem very strange. Most manufacturers faced with a demand for something would be rubbing their hands together,” she said.

“We get a lot of calls from parents who have lost faith in MMR and would prefer to have the option of a single vaccine. We would like to see MMR suspended and more research done.

“In the meantime single vaccines should be available. We are not against vaccines, we are against damage. Parents have a right to make a choice.”

Mrs Coote said many parents were considering travelling to Europe to purchase single jabs.

She said that her own daughter, Rachal, stopped breathing after being injected with the triple vaccine at the age of 18 months.

Now aged 11, Rachal still suffers from epileptic fits and has the mental age of a six-year-old.

Her daughter’s experience led Mrs Coote to set up Jabs, which has 1,700 members.

The Department of Health accepts the vaccine is not risk-free. “All drugs have side-effects,” said a spokeswoman. “We believe that there is more risk from not having the vaccination.”

She said the Government recommended having all three vaccinations at once, though she denied there had been any pressure placed on Pasteur Merieux MSD to withdraw the single vaccine.

“There is a risk to other children if a child is waiting to go back to the doctor for another vaccination. It is also more painful for the child,” she said.

“But the decision to withdraw the single vaccine is the company’s alone.”
