Even the CDC admits that there is thimerosal in the multi dose vials of flu vaccine.
So my immunocompromised child should risk an encephalitis reaction to a vaccine for a common childhood illness so someone else's immunocompromised child who can't get the vaccine doesn't get the illness?
Vaccines do not necessarily produce immunity to infection, especially in children/people who's immune systems are already compromised (ie by lyme/co) and are not actively producing antibodies.
" For example, 90 percent of the children who contracted whooping cough (pertussis) in the 2012 outbreak in Vermont were vaccinated.4 Of 178 confirmed cases of pertussis in children aged six months to 18 years, 160 of them were vaccinated with DTaP (diphtheria, tetanus and acellular pertussis vaccine):
•One child had received one to two doses
•Eight had received three doses
•Nine had received four doses
•74 had received five doses, and
•68 had received six doses
The recommended number of doses DTaP vaccine before entering kindergarten is FIVE, yet 38 percent of these kids who had received SIX doses - one more dose than recommended - still contracted whooping cough!
This seems to confirm findings published in The New England Journal of Medicine,5 which showed that a child's odds of contracting whooping cough increases 42 percent each year after receiving their fifth dose of the DTaP vaccine. California also experienced a whooping cough "epidemic" last year. According to the California Department of Public Health (CDPH):6"
These outbreaks are not the result of people not vaccinating. They are the result of vaccine failure.
Fully vaccinated individuals should not be getting sick, but this is happening more and more, especially with the MMR.
The live attenuated viruses in vaccines can also be passed to others even though the vaccinated person is not experiencing symptoms.
