Evidence of serious health consequences was recently confirmed in the Journal of Pediatrics in which CRP levels were measured after vaccination. CRP, short for C-reactive protein, is a blood marker indicating a heightened state of inflammation throughout the body.
The study involved infants in a neonatal intensive care unit who were given two or more vaccines on the same day. A separate group of
infants were given one shot at a time, every three days. The vaccines administered were DTaP, Hib, polio [IPV], hepatitis B and Prevnar.
The findings were disturbing:
- An abnormally elevated CRP occurred in 85 percent of infants who received simultaneous vaccines and nearly 70 percent of infants who received the shots one at a time.
- Gastroesophageal reflux (GERD) and severe intraventricular hemorrhage (bleeding in the brain) also occurred in infants who received multiple vaccines at the same time.
- Cardiorespiratory events (stopped breathing) occurred in 16 percent of all infants within 48 hours after receiving the vaccines.
Infants who received DTaP, Prevnar and Hib as single injections experienced the largest number of cardiorespiratory events overall.

There are further concerns about elevated CRP levels. It was found in a study of 62 children who were part of the Diabetes Autoimmunity Study that when infants and young children have an elevated CRP level, they have an increased risk of developing Type 1 (insulin-dependent) diabetes in childhood.
