02-05-2009, 11:25 PM
My family doctor gave my sister the 6 vaccines she was missing all at once, eg. polio, rubella, mumps.....Then he recommended that my 8 year-old sister get the new chicken pox vaccine since she never had chicken pox and he said its dangerous if she gets it in her adult life.
I want to know your opinion on this vaccine and if she should get it.
Also, my doc recommended that I get the MMR rubella vaccine but I realy dont know if I want to. He said that its important cause if I am ever pregnant, which I tolled him i'm never having kids, would be dangerous for the baby if I get measles or mumps.
I am wondering what this doctor's obssesion with vaccines is but I am not sure if they are any good.
chicken pox can be dangerous in adult life ... i myself nursed a man who within 24 hours of first symptoms had pusules on his lungs and nearly died.... and people still die from chicken pox in the western world
rubella/germa measles is a nastly virus to the unborn child again i have experience of his my friend ( unvaccinated) contracted it whilst pregnant her child is profoundly deaf
i know many on here disagree with me but i have witnessed what pathogens can do .... in the western world we live in fantastic times ( health wise)
we have long forgotten what it was like a hundred years ago, where babies usually died ,pregnancy was tantamount to a death sntance ,where a tooth abcess usually proved fatal
vaccines have destroyed devastating illnesses such as polio,
and have made us blase to the benefits thay give , no longer are we terified of measles, mumps etc
the menigitis c rates have plummeted since vaccination
there is also the fact that if enough people take up the vaccine , it protects those that cant have it..... in itself some may say not eneough reason for me to have it ... but we never know if at some point we or one of our children may become immunocompromised
if you believe like some that pharma companies are inleague with govt that these vaccines are a means to cull the population , have a look at the mortality rates of countries that dont have vaccination programmes
surely that indicates whether or not to be vaccinated

I arrived in this country during the MMR outcry. I refused to have my young son innoculated with it. I had been cautioned not to have him done under school going age - under age 4 can cause autism apparently, is what I was told. He's 9 now and my ex has since got my boys up to date with their innoculations, without side effect.
My youngest has a dicky heart, but we refuse the flu jab each year because of all the negativity around it which we read.
the mmr/ autism debate has proved largely unfounded with the doctor who instigated this debate being investigated and being found to be in the pockets of some company pushing seperate vaccines
recent research strongly suggests autism is a genetic fault
and whilst i did have all my children vaccinated ( mine to was around the time of the media attenton) i did so after much soul searching and research
i asked several health visitors what they thought
one told me that every child she knew who developed autism had been of concern to them long before they had been vaccinated
oh and all my children were fine

On April 9, 2008, the parties filed a stipulation on damages, in which they agreed to settle
this case and described the settlement terms. Petitioners allege that Lora Wright suffered from
acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (“ADEM”) and optic neuritis allegedly resulting from a
measles-mumps-rubella (“MMR”) vaccination, a diphtheria-tetanus-acellular pertussis (“DTaP”)
vaccination, and an inactivated polio vaccine (“IPV”). Respondent denies that Ms. Wright’s
alleged injury was vaccine-related, and denies that she suffered any disabilities that were
sequelae of her alleged injury. Nonetheless, the parties agreed to resolve this matter informally.
This is what we should be focusing on.
