New Multi Vaccine Causes Seizures

With vaccines, more is definitely not better. Remember when Searle covered up data that EQUAL causes seizures in people (p.s. Donald Rumsfeld was CEO of Searle at the time). If you're gonna vaccinate, go low and slow.

From Natural News:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(NaturalNews) Children who take Merck's combination vaccine ProQuad suffer from convulsions twice as frequently as children who are given two separate vaccines, a federally funded study has found.

In response, the federal Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices has reversed its prior position of recommending ProQuad, which protects against measles, mumps, rubella (MMR) and chicken pox, over two separate vaccines for chicken pox and MMR.

"Safety, shortages, delivery issues - lots of reasons not to state such a strong preference," advisory committee member Patsy Stinchfield said.

Previously, the committee had recommended ProQuad over the separate vaccines in order to reduce the number of shots that children would have to undergo.

ProQuad costs approximately the same as the chicken pox and MMR vaccines combined. Due to manufacturing problems, the vaccine has been in short supply since 2007.

Researchers in the new study looked at 43,000 children between the ages of 12 and 23 months who had been vaccinated with ProQuad and 315,000 who had received two separate MMR and chicken pox vaccines. They found that within seven to 10 days after vaccination, those given ProQuad suffered twice as many cases of fever followed by convulsions as those given the separate shots. This amounted to one extra convulsion per 2,000 children receiving ProQuad.

In absolute terms, nine of every 10,000 children receiving ProQuad suffered fever-related seizures, compared with four in 10,000 children in the dual vaccine group.

Children undergoing seizures did not appear to suffer any lasting effects, and there were no recorded deaths.

A similar study conducted by Merck also found a doubling of seizure risk within five to 12 days of vaccination with ProQuad, but said that the difference in seizure rates vanished in a 30-day time period. The absolute seizure rate from ProQuad was lower in the Merck-funded study, at five convulsions per 10,000 children vaccinated.

Interesting. I am expecting to have somewhat of a confrontation with daughter's pedi this week when we say no to the MMR and chicken pox vaccine.Funny, when I spoke to him about this months ago and voiced my concerns he didn't want to break up the quad. Now we are going for zero. We'll see... They can be quite intimidating, but that makes me distrust their knowledge more.

Your pedi should give you some CREDIT for raising a healthy happy sweet pea.

I just wanted everyone to know - we saw the pedi and he was quite open about not doing the MMR. I have heard horror stories about pedi reactions to those who opt out of doing vaccines or merely want an alternative schedule. It's good to know that there are doctors out there who will not resort to intimidation.

In the UK there's a serious public issue with the MMR vaccine, and there has been serious fallout from people deciding not to take it- such as cases of Mumps & Measles (which are serious diseases) in places where they had been eradicated some 20 years ago. These diseases are much more serious, and on a much larger scale, than the conditions connected with the vaccine.

I know that this post concerns a combined vaccine, but I feel I have to point this out: I personally feel disgusted when people decide not to vaccinate at all. The point of vaccination is to prevent epidemics, (usually antibiotics can cure the disease) which a country's health system cannot handle, and so when a lot of people decide not to vaccinate, there are serious problems for everybody.

Doctors are the ones with the medical training (hopefully), though, so I would trust what they reccommend.

Did you know that Cheri Blair did *not* vaccinate her youngest with the MMR?

Hi

I have been looking for information about obtaining the broken up MMR vaccines. My Dr. has been supportive as we have decided to follow Dr. Sears' Alternate Vaccine Schedule; however we have run into this problem as Merck is not offering the MMR broken up anymore. Is there any other company who provides this? If there is not, then how long do we wait to give the MMR?

We got ours from the hard working folks at East Side Prescription in PVD. Give them a call.
