Children's Vaccinations

I am one of those crazy people who it totally against vaccines. Of course my children still get them because they are forced to, but I am not happy about it. They are not monitored enough before use and then they are still used even after they kill many children. There is absolutely not enough done to ensure they are safe for our children. Of course I have read all the statistics but they do not make me feel better one bit. The CDC thinks it is okay to kill a few children, give a few autism, and make a few brain dead just because it doesn't happen that often. What if that was your child? Then they say it happens SOO rarely, like 1 in 1.5 million children. This is bull, as I personally have spoken with several people whose child has gotten Autism from the MMR vaccine. I do not know 1.5 million people, so how is this possible? Anyway, here is some information I got off the CDC website.

DTaP Vaccine:

Severe Problems (Very Rare)
Serious allergic reaction (less than 1 out of a million doses) Several other severe problems have been reported after DTaP vaccine. These include:

  • Long-term seizures, coma, or lowered consciousness
  • Permanent brain damage.
Influenza Vaccine:

In 1976, a certain type of influenza (swine flu) vaccine was associated with Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS). Since then, flu vaccines have not been clearly linked to GBS. However, if there is a risk of GBS from current flu vaccines, it would be no more than 1 or 2 cases per million people vaccinated. This is much lower than the risk of severe influenza, which can be prevented by vaccination. (If the people who make the vaccine do not even know what they are talking about, how can we trust them?)

MMR Vaccine:

Moderate Problems

  • Seizure (jerking or staring) caused by fever (about 1 out of 3,000 doses)
  • Temporary pain and stiffness in the joints, mostly in teenage or adult women (up to 1 out of 4)
  • Temporary low platelet count, which can cause a bleeding disorder (about 1 out of 30,000 doses)

Severe Problems (Very Rare)

  • Serious allergic reaction (less than 1 out of a million doses)
  • Several other severe problems have been known to occur after a child gets MMR vaccine. But this happens so rarely, experts cannot be sure whether they are caused by the vaccine or not. These include:
    • Deafness
    • Long-term seizures, coma, or lowered consciousness
    • Permanent brain damage

Meningoccal Vaccine:

Severe problems

  • Serious allergic reactions, within a few minutes to a few hours of the shot, are very rare.
  • A serious nervous system disorder called Guillain-BarrĂ© Syndrome (or GBS) has been reported among some people who received MCV4.

Smallpox Vaccine:

Moderate to Severe Problems

  • Serious eye infection, or loss of vision, due to spread of vaccine virus to the eye.
  • Rash on entire body (as many as 1 per 4,000).
  • Severe rash on people with eczema (as many as 1 per 26,000).
  • Encephalitis (severe brain reaction), which can lead to permanent brain damage (as many as 1 per 83,000).
  • Severe infection beginning at the vaccination site (as many as 1 per 667,000, mostly in people with weakened immune systems).
  • Death (1-2 per million, mostly in people with weakened immune systems).

For every million people vaccinated, between 14 and 52 could have a life-threatening reaction to smallpox vaccine.

People who come in direct contact with the vaccination site of a vaccinated person, or with materials that have touched the site, can also have a reaction. This is from exposure to virus from the vaccination site.

Feel free to check out this website here. And notice how every time they say something bad, like it could kill you, they go on to reassure you that it is rare, but rare is not good. People are dying every day from vaccines, I believe they need to be made safer, but then again, like I said, I am crazy. Please share your thoughts.

I am one of those people who always react adversely to vaccines. It's always moderate to bad too. I find them worthless, especially in America where the chance of contracting those diseases is minute.

I agree. Of course if nobody was immunized, we would have more diseases, but our immune systems are supposed to be better than any vaccine anyway. They are not because all America eats is crap that kills us so our immune systems are as worthless as the vaccines. Here you have to be rich to eat healthy, that is sad. Either way the government wins, a sick America is one that makes the government money.

No Stealing!
