In a report in the 2015 Clinical Infectious Disease, which has been widely cited as the definitive answer to whether sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) is caused by vaccines, the authors say there’s no connection.
They state this right after stating that of childhood death reports to the VAERS database (there were 1,469 deaths considered—of which SIDS accounted for 544), 79.4% had received more than one vaccine on the same day:
But there’s nothing to see here. Move along. Vaccines are safe and effect.
It’s important to note that the SIDS fatalities didn’t occur on the same day as vaccination but that the SIDS fatality happened after multiple vaccinations on the same day.
It’s unclear how many of those SIDS fatalities had the multiple vaccines associated, but we can use the 79.4% figure though it could be higher.
It is estimated that VAERS numbers represents less than 10% of total vaccine injury reports. This would put the total SIDS deaths over that time at anywhere between 5,540 and 55,400. If we took the average, that would be 30,470 SIDS death
Using these data and the CDC figure of 1,500 SIDS deaths a year, that would put the total over that time at 25,500, which is in line with the estimate based on VAERS.
79.4% of 25,500 deaths is 20,247.
It’s reasonable to extrapolate that over 20,000 infants have died the same day that they received multiple vaccines. If that happened with any other drug or any other product, there would be riots in the streets of every American city. Why the double standard with vaccines?
