Vaccines, BSE and vCJD


“It was necessary to communicate properly and convincingly to and with the public. Dr Griffiths reminded the meeting that public perceptions of safety could severely damage an immunization service.” – Report putting vaccines before safety.

Andrew at work

In 1997 after founding VAN UK, I read in a copy of the British medical journal that the Italian health ministry had banned the hib vaccine due to it being cultured on bovine heart and brain infusion.

‘The Italian ministry of health has suspended the use and marketing of a vaccine against Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) because of fears that it could transmit bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) to humans.
The police were called in to seize batches of HibTITER from the Italian outlets of the US manufacturer Wyeth-Lederle on 17 January. The vaccine was used in the Italian national vaccination programme, but the use of bovine heart-brain infusion agar to promote bacterial growth early in the manufacturing process has worried the Commissione Unica per il Farmaco, which is part of the ministry of health’ – BMJ 1997;314:393 (8 February).

Concerned, I wrote to the department of health, asking why British vaccines containing bovine serum had not been recalled. They wrote back to me on the 1st September 1997, saying

“Safeguards have been put in place to minimise the potential for contamination (of vaccines) with BSE.”

They failed to inform the public of the ‘minimal risk’ of CJD posed by vaccines. I asked them why they hadn’t told parents this information. They didn’t reply to my letter.

Consequently, 171 people have died of vCJD from infected meat, contaminated vaccines and blood donation. 18 blood donors have since died of vCJD and their blood was used to make 83,500 doses of polio vaccine for Ireland. It was also used to provide human albumin which is another blood product present in many vaccines.

The government knew the risks involved but chose not to inform the public for fear it would damage the vaccination programme. They wrote in the BSE Inquiry report:

‘The Working Group discussed the hazard-to-benefit ratio for the vaccines and decided that the benefits accruing from continuance of the vaccine programme outweighed the very remote risk to the population from the use of bovine material in these products.’


I assumed that the use of bovine serum would have been phased out in light of the BSE crisis, but I discovered that it is still being used widely.
According to the Canadian Immunization Guide, 7th edition, last updated 2008, IPV vaccines, MMR 2, varicella, Rotateq oral rotavirus vaccine and Pediacel 5 in 1 vaccine all have bovine serum in them. The MMR 2 and Pediacel are used in this country (UK):

This article in the medical journal Immunology, also says:

‘Gelatins used in vaccines produced in Japan are derived from bovine or porcine sources; all live virus vaccines contain bovine gelatin’


Young people are still dying of vCJD today and professor John Collinge estimates that one in every thousand people could be carrying vCJD. How many of these will go on to develop the disease is unclear.

24 Year old Andy Black Died of vCJD, Suspected From BCG Vaccine Which Was Cultured on TB Infected Cows

Andy as a baby in his bouncy chair

Six months after Andrew had his BCG, he moaned constantly of the pain in his arm and he wasn’t a lad to complain. His grandmother died and within 3 months and Andrew lost all his hair and I mean every hair, even his eyelashes and eyebrows. fortunately at the time a lot of young lads were having their heads shaved so he got away with it at school…I put it down to the severe shock of losing his grandmother but now think it could have something to do with the jab. His hair grew back within months as thick as ever, but I often wonder if those two events had anything to do with him developing vcjd ten years later the time span is correct as other people who have died of vcjd through contaminated blood have died within a 5-10 years incubation period.

The Edinburgh surveillance unit set up by the DOH to investigate vCJD was very keen to find out if my Andrew had the MMR. Of course my Andrew didn’t but he had many of the other vaccines and I still have strong feelings that the bcg may be implicated in his developing vCJD. I bitterly regret him having this jab as he needn’t have had it and I had to persuade him over many days and weeks. It’s something that haunts me during the dark nights I can’t sleep, so it’s essential that mums and parents have informed choices know exactly what’s in the vaccines their infants and children will receive and then be able to make decisions from that infor mation. In the 1980s and 1990s mums like me didn’t have that choice or opportunity and if I had known what was in those jabs no way would my son have had injections and he may well still be alive today – Christine Lord, Andy’s mother.

At the time of writing March 2010 there are young people and individuals currently dying of vCJD in the UK and abroad, the youngest in their early twenties/teens.

. .
3 LONG TERM SURVIVORS Holly Mills 26, Jonathan Simms 26, and a female aged 53, all are being treated with a controversial drug pentosan which does not repair brain damage but seems to slow down the progression of the disease.

8 mothers and their new born babies are ‘at risk’ of developing vCJD after using the same delivery suite as a mum who died of vCJD. Many other new mothers have not been informed that the delivery suites and instruments used on victims of vCJD have been re used on them and their babies. (the rogue prions that cause vCJD cannot be destroyed by current sterilisation and eradication methods used by the NHS).

128 children in the UK have lost a mum or dad to vCJD.

9 children have been born to Mothers who died of vCJD within days, weeks or months of giving birth.
One child is brain damaged as her mum was infected with vCJD during pregnancy.

Two other children were born within days of their mothers dying of vCJD they remain well.


At least two million children in the UK are ‘at risk’ of vCJD after being routinely injected with vaccines sourced from BSE infected herds and material used from blood donors that have gone on to die of vCJD. (see vaccines page on the justice4andy website to read about just some of the implicated injections).

There have been several scares regarding hundreds of thousands of vaccine doses which have been routinely sourced from bovine material or human blood donation; the recipients of these vaccines have not been traced. Andrew Black’s records for his childhood vaccines have disappeared this is a common occurrence with many other victims of vCJD.


Thousands of haemophiliacs have been put ‘at risk’ of developing vCJD due to their medicine being sourced from Blood donors that went on to die of vCJD.

A third of these were children under 16, a young boy of 8 was given blood from a donor that went on to die of vCJD. At least 18 blood donors in the UK have gone on to die of vCJD, many of their recipients have not been traced or informed.
66 patients were given blood from a donor that went on to die of vCJD.

There are hundreds of individuals who live with the ‘at risk’ status of developing vCJD, in the UK. These people have been given infected blood/blood products, have had medical procedures such as transplants, tissue organs/cells or have been in theatres/hospital environments where they have been exposed to the rogue prions that cause vCJD. They have been told they could develop the diseases at anytime. They are unable to give blood and many are disabled because of this ‘ticking health time bomb’.

Last year an elderly haemophiliac man who died of ‘unrelated causes’. was found at autopsy to be carrying vCJD in his spleen. This pensioner had been given blood products from a blood donor that had gone on to die of vCJD. This victim was MV genotype. He had shown no signs of the disease and was silently carrying vCJD.

Any individual who has lived,worked or been resident in the UK since 1980 is unable to donate blood in any country in the world except this one.

Professor John Collinge UCL world expert in prion disease, said ‘ONE IN A THOUSAND OF THE UK POPULATION IS PROBABLY CARRYING VCJD’- MAY 2008. This means that individuals may never develop the disease but have the ability to pass it onwards through blood, medical procedures. EVERYONE IN THE UK OVER 13 is considered ‘ASYMPTOMATIC’ which means they have been exposed to the agent that causes vCJD but the disease may lay silent or hasn’t yet been triggered.

We do know that at least 18 blood donors have died of vCJD in the UK and currently there are thousands of individuals world wide that are walking around not aware they may be at risk of ‘developing vCJD’ due to medicines and blood products they have received. Or EXPOSURE TO vCJD through ‘surgical incidence’.

Many local authorities and governments have taken the stance ‘not to inform’ and indeed not to actively trace recipients. In documents I have read it often states ‘PATIENTS HAVE NOT BEEN NOTIFIED DUE TO LOCAL, CLINICAL DECISIONS’ or ‘currently notification is pending’.

STEPHEN LUNT (see victims listed above) was injured in a car accident and received blood and then became a blood donor himself. He then died of vCJD. According to Stephen’s family his original blood donor and recipients were never traced. (People who receive blood are no longer able to donate, however this does not prevent those ‘silently’ carrying the disease from giving blood).
One of the current victims of vCJD received a blood transfusion for an operation several years ago. Her husband tells me ‘They (DOH) are telling me very little about my wife’s blood donors, it’s all very secret……I keep asking questions though……I know she got vCJD from blood.’



This naturally occurring form of the disease, pre-BSE mainly affected people 60 plus and was rare. Only one in a million people would develop the illness.
Prof Collinge 8th December 2009 said ‘The chances of developing sCJD are now one in 33,000 in the UK’ Cases are also getting much younger there have been recorded incidences of the disease as young as 25 years old in the USA and 19 years old in the UK. Before BSE it was unheard of for anyone under 60 to develop this disease. In the USA experts have stated that there is a ‘1 in 9,000 chance of developing dementia’.

HUNDREDS OF people who went on to develop SPORADIC CJD have been lifelong blood donors ……recipients of their blood donations have never been traced!

I believe many cases of sporadic CJD are connected to BSE and vCJD….numbers of sCJD cases have tripled in most countries where BSE CATTLE was endemic or exported. In Australia where there is apparently no cases of BSE people are dying of sCJD but as the population of Australia is predominately through immigration from the UK and Europe this is not surprising.
Experts in dementia believe we face a global epidemic of cases! Cases of dementia are getting much younger. Why?


I HAVE INCLUDED THESE VICTIMS to highlight the significant danger of transmitting CJD through surgery and especially intravenously through vaccines and drugs. ALSO SOME OF THESE VICTIMS HAVE BEEN BLOOD DONORS.

Between 1959-1985 1, 9000 children here in the UK were treated with growth hormone treatment. Many have since died of CJD. These treatments were extracted from cadaver’s pituitary glands whose brains were riddled with CJD. Many of the injections/medicines sourced from these infected cadavers were also exported abroad; thousands of people globally live with the ticking time bomb that they will develop CJD. These injectables were mass produced and exported. Families across Europe and globally have also been devastated.

Below are the names of some of those that have died, there are many many more victims…but once again Governments have tried to keep the lid on the true numbers of people affected.

1,700 Children in France were injected with growth hormones sourced from cadavers who were riddled with CJD. Many of these young people have died horrifically of CJD. Including a Moroccan Boy aged 15 called Ilyassil Benziane, Nicolas Guillemet and Isabelle Norroy .


Stacey, (young female), Brooklyn, New York, Podiatrist.


Four Young women died of CJD due to fertility treatments (INJECTIONS) produced from cadavers with CJD. TWO OF THESE YOUNG WOMEN HAD BEEN BLOOD DONORS. It has been reported that some patients who received this blood have since died of CJD.

At least 700 children in Australia were given growth hormone treatment contaminated with CJD. Many of these young people are disabled and unable to work due to the ticking health time bomb that these hormone treatments have caused.

With thanks to Christine Lord for this information.
