Blood Disorders

Vaccinations are linked to rare but serious blood disorders such as the following:

Lupus

Lupus is an autoimmune disorder. This means that the body’s immune system attacks healthy cells and tissues by mistake. This can damage your joints, skin, blood vessels and organs. There are many kinds of lupus. The most common type, systemic lupus erythematosus, affects many parts of the body. Discoid lupus causes a rash that doesn’t go away. Subacute cutaneous lupus causes sores after being out in the sun. Another type can be caused by medication.  Neonatal lupus, which is rare, affects newborns.  Read more

Thombocytopenia

Thrombocytopenia is any disorder in which there are not enough platelets. Platelets are cells in the blood that help blood to clot. This condition is sometimes associated with abnormal bleeding. Thrombocytopenia is often divided into three major causes of low platelets: low production of platelets in the bone marrow; increased breakdown of platelets in the bloodstream (called intravascular); and increased breakdown of platelets in the spleen or liver (called extravascular).  Read more

Wegener’s Granulomatosis

Wegener’s granulomatosis is a disorder that restricts blood flow to various organs. Most commonly Wegener’s granulomatosis affects your kidneys, lungs and upper respiratory tract. The restricted blood flow to these organs can damage them. Besides inflamed blood vessels, Wegener’s granulomatosis produces a type of inflammatory tissue known as granuloma, found around the blood vessels. Granulomas can destroy normal tissue. Without treatment, Wegener’s granulomatosis can be fatal, most commonly from kidney failure. Vaccines are linked to Wegener’s Granulomatosis.  Read more
