The Gut Club’s Microbiome Vaccine Safety Project is creating new scientific research and public education. We are now on Patreon, raising funds to finance new research to explore our central hypothesis, microbial predisposition to adverse vaccine reaction.
Gut microbiota have a significant effect on host response to vaccination where a reduced or absent population of commensal flora coupled with an overgrowth of pathogenic strains may become a microbial predisposition to adverse vaccine reaction. This may include reduced or absent protective microbiota such as Bifidobacteria, Lactobacillus and butyrate-producing Clostridia allowing immune dysregulating Bacteroides and Proteobacteria to be overgrown.
In exploring this important concept, The Gut Club is working with a gnotobiotic pig laboratory:

We are also working with a microbiome DNA stool testing company where one goal is to conduct a routine infant meconium and stool testing demonstration project at a hospital:

Here are some articles describing the hypothesis. A new, peer-reviewed article has been approved by a medical Journal and we await publication.
