A sound every parent dreads- a crying baby, much less a baby crying in pain. If you’ve ever taken your child to the pediatrician, you may have heard this sound one too many times, as they are poked and prodded several times the first year of life. And, for what reason? To be vaccinated, with perhaps cruel and unnecessary vaccinations.
It is said that more than 10 million vaccines per year are given to children less than 1 year old, usually between 2 and 6 months of age. And children today receive 33 doses of 10 different vaccines all with autism-causing mercury, with amounts 100 times greater than what the Environmental Protection Guidelines considers as safe. And at this age, infants are at greatest risk for certain medical adverse events; including high fevers, seizures, and sudden infant death syndrome.
There are 13,000 reports of neurological trauma due to vaccinations, which has been filed annually since 1990 by the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). With 13% classified as serious (e.g., associated with disability, hospitalization, life-threatening illness or death). Sadly enough though, public health officials have chosen to disregard these reports because, these events, according to them, were mere coincidences.
Common side effects from vaccinations are fever, febrile seizures, coma, Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS), autoimmune reactions or even death.
Let’s now look at 2 very common vaccines that are given to children, Polio and MMR (Measles, Mumps & Rubella.)
Polio used to be very common in the United States and caused severe illness in thousands of people each year before the polio vaccine was introduced in 1955. Most people infected with the polio virus have no symptoms; however, for the less than 1% who develop paralysis it may result in permanent disability and even death.
There are two types of vaccines that protect against polio: inactivated polio vaccine (IPV) and oral polio vaccine (OPV). IPV, used in the United States since 2000, is given as an injection in the leg or arm, depending on the patient’s age. Polio vaccine may be given at the same time as other vaccines. Most people should get polio vaccine when they are children. Children get 4 doses of IPV, at these ages: 2 months, 4 months, 6-18 months, and booster dose at 4-6 years. OPV has not been used in the United States since 2000 but is still used in many parts of the world.
Serious adverse effects of the Polio vaccine are: extreme drowsiness, fainting, seizure (black-out or convulsions), or high fever (within a few hours or a few days after the vaccine). Less serious side effects include: redness, pain, swelling, or a lump where the shot was given; low fever; joint pain, body aches; drowsiness; or vomiting.
The measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine is a combination vaccine that was licensed in 1971 to protect against measles, mumps, and rubella. These diseases are serious and can be potentially deadly. Each year in the US, nearly 10 million doses of the vaccine are distributed. CDC continues to recommend two doses of MMR vaccine for all children: dose 1 at ages 12-15 months, and dose 2 at ages 4-6 years.
The most common adverse events following the MMR vaccine are: pain where the vaccine is given, fever, a mild rash, and swollen glands in the cheeks or neck. Moderate effects include: seizure (caused by fever), temporary pain and stiffness in the joints, temporary low platelet count (which can cause a bleeding disorder). Severe problems include: a serious allergic reaction, deafness, long-term seizures, coma, or lowered consciousness, and possibly permanent brain damage.
