On February 21, 2013, a one month-old baby girl died after receiving her first vaccinations. Baby Ayushi Gupta died at the Maltibai Hospital, Thane, West Mumbai in India just hours after receiving her vaccinations for Hepatitis B, DPT (diptheria, pertussis and tetanus) and oral pulse polio drops.
Her parents blame her death on the vaccinations and have filed a complaint with the Thane Nagar police station against the hospital for negligence.
Just before her vaccinations, Ayushi’s parents, Amit and Lata Gupta, informed the hospital that their baby was unwell and had a cough. After examining the baby, doctors told her parents that the cough was caused by a change in the weather and continued with the vaccinations.
FIVE VACCINES LATER, THEIR DAUGHTER IS GONE
According to reports, Ayushi began to cry immediately after receiving the vaccinations. However, doctors informed her anxious parents that it was possible that she would cry the entire day, as this was a common side effect of the vaccinations! They advised her parents to take her home and feed her two hours later.
The Mumbai Mirror, reporting on the story, issued a statement from her parents, who said:
“We brought her home and fed her milk around two hours later. Around 7 pm, her eyes were shut and we assumed that she had fallen asleep,” Amit said. “When my wife tried to wake her up, she did not move.” 
On finding their baby ill, they immediately rushed the sick infant to the Maltbai Hospital. Sadly, it was too late and Ayushi was pronounced dead on arrival.
According to The Mumbai Mirror, Senior Inspector P. Thorat from Thane Nagar Police Station told reporters that they had recorded statements from the all the staff responsible for administering vaccinations and they had checked the vaccine batches.
Experts reported that adverse reactions after vaccinations were rare and that 22 other children received the vaccines and were said to be fine.
A TRAGIC PROCEDURE
I would like to ask those experts two important questions:
1. As Ayushi was sick on the day of her vaccinations, was it appropriate for her to receive her vaccinations in the first place?
2. Seeing that Ayushi was so distressed upon receiving her vaccinations, why wasn’t she monitored by the hospital for 24 hours, just in case?
In the Western World, it is unusual for a child this young to receive so many vaccinations at one time, but according to the Indian Academy of Pediatrics (IAP) vaccination schedule, this procedure is normal.  In fact, as soon as a child is born in India, they are given the BCG, OPV O (oral polio) and the Hep B vaccination. This vaccination schedule is especially frightening when you consider that, according to the mainstream media, polio has been almost been completely eradicated in India. [3)]
