Vaccination & Immunization Message Board

Vaccination & Immunization Board Index

[QUOTE=coley91]Just so you all know. My son did have the shot for whopping cough. Thank GOD!!!! Literally. When he was a year old, even though he had the shot. He contracted whooping cough. He was one sick little boy. If he wouldnt of had that shot, he probably wouldnt be with us today. It was that bad. He couldnt catch his breath when he coughed... and it was awful. I would STRONGLY recomend every mother consider getting this shot for your child. There are more chances of your children contracting things such as whooping cough again these days.


If your child had the vaccination and he caught the disease anyway, doesn't that mean the vaccination didn't work? We have a seven year old daughter who we decided not to vaccinate. We spent so many hours and months researching all of the studies worldwide, we finally came to the decision not to vaccinate. My mother was not vaccinated as a child and she did catch whooping cough at age 3. It was an awful ordeal, but she is a healthy 57 year old adult today. She opted to have me vaccinated as a child and to this day regrets it. My immune system has always been compromised. I have had surgery to correct scoliosis and many sinus surgeries throughout my life. I am not saying that all of my problems were related to the vaccines, but I do feel they contributed to my problems. Although my mother thought at the time she was doing what was in my best interest, in retrospect, she said she has a new found appreciation for her mother who did not allow her to be vaccinated. So, I am not trying to sway anyones opinion. I feel that vaccinating a child is a very personal choice that needs to be made by parents who educate themselves as much as they possibly can! I just had to respond to the fact that your child did get the disease after he was vaccinated. It just makes me wonder why you didn't question why the vaccine didn't prevent the illness. :)

[QUOTE=bellestar]Hello there! I am a new mom and my daughter is 2 months old. I took her in yesterday to have her first shots and the Dr. wanted to give her the DTaP shot and I told him no b/c I have brother whom has seizure disorder and his Dr. said to not let the other family members have the pertessis (whooping cough) shot b/c it can cause seizures especially when it runs in the family. I explained this to the Dr. and he kept fighting me on it and telling horrible stories about whooping cough. I kept telling no she can not have it b/c of my brother and he just kept pushing but I finally said no, thats the way it is or we will leave and he had the nurse give her the DT shot (without pertessus). Does anyone know anything more about the pertessus shot? I have seen several sites that say DO NOT Give the DTaP shot if anyone in the family has had a seizure.

First of all, congratulations on standing your ground and protecting your child. You are the mother and if something goes wrong with the child, if she has a severe reaction, you are the one who let the doctor give the injection.

He goes home to his healthy family and then you can deal with the sick or damaged child. Therefore it must be your decision alone, yours and your husbands, not the doctor's.

Do a search about the pertussis vaccine and see that it is most likely the cause of SIDS.

In Japan when the government told all mothers not to vaccinate their children with pertussis vaccine until they were two years of age their SIDS rate dropped over night. Then when they were coerced by the pharma to start vaccinating sooner, the SIDS rate came back up.

Look at all vaccines. Go on other boards. Read books. A very good book is by Jamie Murphy, do a search, you'll find it. Read it cover to cover before you go back to the doctor.

BTW, you don't have to go to well baby visits. They are mostly designed to trick you into giving your child vaccines. If your baby is healthy, she doesn't need to go to the doctor and you won't have the hassle.

Kids who are not vaccinated at all have almost no allergies and no asthma.
