A New Mexico infant became inexplicably ill with a high fever and died weeks after his mother received Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s adverse event reporting service recorded the infant died just two weeks after his mother, 36, receiving her first Pfizer vaccine dose on July 17.
The six week-old baby had developed blood clots in his “severely inflamed arteries” according to a Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) registry.
The mother knew something was wrong after her son developed a fever. Her doctor suspected a bacterial infection had caused the baby’s symptoms, and prescribed intravenous antibiotics.
“They never found any specific bacteria, [and called his diagnosis] culture-negative sepsis,” the mother said in the VAERS report. “At the end of his hospital stay he tested positive for rhinovirus.”
However, the medicine did not stop various “strange symptoms” including swollen eyelids, strange rashes, and vomiting.
“I took him back to the hospital on July 15, where he presented with what they called an atypical Kawasaki disease,” the mother said according to the publication.
She was horrified to discover her bundle of joy died shortly after from multiple blood clots in his severely inflamed arteries.
Kawasaki disease affects mostly young children, and rarely occurs when the immune system accidentally attacks blood vessels. Blood vessels become inflamed and may become narrower or entirely closed according to LifeSite News.
The grieving mother questioned her informed medical decision to be immunized against the deadly disease many times. She wonders if spike proteins could have found their way into her breast milk and cut her son’s life short after feeding.
“I am curious if the spike protein could have gone through the breast milk and caused an inflammatory response in my child,” she said. “They say Kawasaki disease presents very similarly to the multi-system inflammatory syndrome in children that they are seeing in post COVID infections.”
Moderna, Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer Laboratories and other messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) vaccines are usually injected into the upper arm. Once the mRNA is inside the body, the muscle cells follow genetic instructions that tell them how to produce spike proteins. These microscopic pieces of the COVID-19 virus theoretically generate antibodies against the virus.
“If they know that antibodies go through the breastmilk as a good thing, then why wouldn’t the spike protein also go through the breastmilk and potentially cause problems?” she said.
A sample study in July found no traces of mRNA in breast milk. However, the same researchers say more data is needed to better determine the effect of vaccines on lactation.
“None of the samples showed detectable levels of vaccine mRNA in any component of the milk,” the researchers concluded after analyzing 13 breast milk samples from seven vaccinated women.
The World Health Organization still recommends breastfeeding mothers should be vaccinated against COVID-19. It does not recommend breastfeeding to be paused after receiving the jab.
Many mothers have declined to be immunized or stopped breastfeeding out of concern the vaccine might taint breast milk.
