Hepatitis B and Child Vaccination

Hep B Vaccinations and Children  

25% of children currently born in the UK are from Endemic for Hepatitis B communities. 
UK children are testin1 in 150 infected on NHS wards from 2007 until 2013 or the last 8 years study the reports here 
The UK is alone in the world ignoring a huge population with hepatitis b arriving 
while denying basic healthcare to them and especially our, at up to 20 times at risk of HBV, children.

We now have in the UK the only unvaccinated for Hepatitis B Brown, Yellow and Black children on Earth
The World Health Organisation has pleaded with health services to vaccinate these children for 20 years.
Over 4 million children are at real risk of catching Hepatitis B incurably from their endemic communities, we on this page detail each infection report over the last 40 months to the UK helpline, we are aware of this being simply the tip of the iceberg.  Our NHS child wards had a chronic Hepatitis B Infection level of 0.7% from 2007 to date during thousands of tests to survey their HBV infection levels.

When we questioned 13 times in the House of Commons via Sir David Amess, Chair of UK all Party Parliamentary Group on Hepatitis, this percentage report being clear evidence of tens of thousands of children being infected.  See Letter to Minister.

Our Health Minister Jane Ellison and our Government stated they cannot recognise their own published figures and archived them.  Archived them! This is a national tragedy our children are testing 30 times more infected than US children and we are simply not being told.  This is not just the worst testing and vaccinating of children for HBV on Earth, it is not even spin and expertly lying politics, it starts to feel like sacrifice to us.  Think of the action when 40,000 gays were found to have caught HIV in the Eighties, yet 40,000 of our children are testing infected with something as deadly and as incurable and no one is allowed to know.

She has been invaluable in designing wrap around family care for HBV children and infectious to others with her managing plan , even her own mum has really benefited.

To add to all this there are also medical reports which have never been made public by the media sadly these studies were done long ago now see 2002 in Liverpool 8.7% of Somali under fives were catching Hepatitis B. To date instead of shining a light on what is a clear and present danger to millions of children we are in denial, still scared of saying the unsayable.

Hepatitis B was and is a Child Virus, that is why 200 nations HBV vaccinate their children as routine.  

Join us to make this safety a reality for every UK child, help us to find every single infected child.  Even if there are 30,000 of them.  For every adult with HIV we have spent 100 times the thought and resource than we have for these children.  Children with no voice, children who cannot protect themselves and desperately need us to protect them.
