|The Pertussis Vaccine|
|The following severe reactions are recognized by the official vaccine policy-makers and are reasons NOT to give additional pertussis vaccine:
Allergic hypersensitive reaction: Hives, swelling of the mouth or throat, difficulty breathing, hypertension and shock within minutes or an hour of the shot.
The following reactions are suspected severe reactions:
NOTE: Besides the serious reactions to DPT, it is not uncommon for a parent to describe how the previously healthy child has become chronically ill: suffering from a constant runny nose, bronchial congestions, ear infections, and/or the onset of allergies, all of which are resistant to antibiotics, antihistamines and other medications.
Additional facts: The benefits of the pertussis vaccine do not outweigh the risks.
|The Diphtheria Vaccine||<BACK TO ADVERSE REACTION LIST>|
|According to the 1990 Physician’s Desk Reference, the possible reactions to this vaccine include:
Additional Facts: Diphtheria can be regularly found in throat cultures, but it is not causing disease.
|The Tetanus Vaccine||<BACK TO ADVERSE REACTION LIST>|
|The possible side effects from this vaccine include:
Additional Facts: With only approximately 50 cases of tetanus a year (compared to other notable diseases such as tuberculosis at more than 20,000 cases a year), tetanus is very hard to get.
|The Measles Vaccine||<BACK TO ADVERSE REACTION LIST>|
|Possible reactions to the measles vaccine include:
Additional Facts: The measles vaccine can destroy the protective sheath covering the nerves, brain, and spinal cord.
|The Mumps Vaccine||<BACK TO ADVERSE REACTION LIST>|
|Side effects of the mumps vaccine are similar to the measles vaccine; also include:
Additional Facts: Mumps is not a harmful disease in children, however there are adverse side effects from the vaccine including meningitis and encephalitis.
|The Rubella Vaccine||<BACK TO ADVERSE REACTION LIST>|
|Side effects are similar to the measles and mumps vaccines, and also include:
|The Polio Vaccine||<BACK TO ADVERSE REACTION LIST>|
|The polio’s primary reaction is that it can directly cause polio.
The polio vaccine has recently been implicated in possibly causing AIDS.
Some of the viruses found in the polio vaccine have been shown to cause leukemia and tumors in laboratory animals.
Damage suits during the 1950’s epidemic of polio gave indisputable proof that it was both the Salk and Sabin vaccines that caused numerous cases of encephalitis, paralysis, and death.
Polio was on the decline before the vaccine was introduced in 1956.
|The Hepatitis Vaccine||<BACK TO ADVERSE REACTION LIST>|
|The USA and Canada are two countries sharing the lowest incidence of hepatitis B in the world.
Almost all hepatitis B deaths in the U.S. are confined to high risk groups.
High risk groups include: I.V. street drug users, male homosexuals with multiple partners, HIV/AIDS infected individuals, prostitutes, elderly refugees and immigrants from Africa and the Orient, individuals who have received multiple transfusions, sexual partners of the above groups).
Possible reactions include:
Additional Facts: While the hepatitis vaccine is given to children to prevent a disease that occurs primarily in high-risk adults, there is no evidence of the vaccine’s effectiveness after 10 years since the antibodies decline over time. The FDA has not approved the newborn use of this vaccine.
