    vaccinations for children?

    My wife recently brought my son, 11 years old to get his vaccination shots 1 was for meninjitis and she can't remember what the othe one was. She say's it started with the letter "a" but I can't find a vaccine that starts with the letter "a" that would be for a child of 11 years. Could anyone tell me what this vaccine is ?

    Re: vaccinations for children?

    I don't think there are any vaccines that start with A.

    Most likely it was a Measles/Mumps/Rubella booster or a Tetanus/Diptheria/Pertussis booster. Possibly flu, also, though that's usually given earlier in winter.

    You can always contact the doctor's office if you really want to know.

    Adacel makes the tetanus/diptheria/pertussis booster and it's occasionally called the "Adacel vaccine".

    vaccinations for children?

    I've read a few statistics that are alarming about vaccinations...

    1. Vaccinations contain mercury, formaldehyde and aluminum... all known carcinogens with no safe allowable dosage for children

    2. Unvaccinated children don't get SIDS

    3. Unvaccinated children don't get leukemia (cancer of the blood)

    4. Unvaccinated children don't get autism.

    5. 85% of measles outbreaks in schools happen in children that have already been vaccinated against measles... if the shots work, why so many vaccinated children getting measles?

    6. If vaccines work as they are supposed to, then what do vaccinated children have to fear from unvaccinated children?

    These points really made my husband I think about whether to vaccinate or not.

    Has anyone heard these same stats before?

    Re: vaccinations for children?

    In order:

    1) All pediatric vaccines except flu are now mercury-free, and the amount of aluminum isn't much greater than what they are exposed to every day by eating food and breathing the air. Baby formula and breast milk have aluminum.

    2) Unvaccinated babies can get SIDS, too, though breast-feeding can help prevent it. In fact, there's some evidence that SIDS is a bad reaction to certain bacteria. (Other theories are out there too.)

    3) Never heard of this one. Any evidence?

    4) Unvaccinated kids do get autism. Amish kids get autism. In fact, high fevers resulting from childhood illnesses used to be a major cause of brain damage and mental retardation in children.

    5) Over 100 people caught measles in the US in 2008. Most of them were unvaccinated. Vaccination against measles works very well in about 98% of people.

    6) Once a child is fully vaccinated, he or she has little to fear from unvaccinated classmates. However, 26 of last year's US measles cases occured in babies 15 months and younger who hadn't been vaccinated yet. These little babies are also at higher risk for serious complications. Thank God, they all recovered, though some of them were hospitalized for a while. And babies don't go to school, but older siblings could carry the virus home on their skin or clothing.

    There's a great deal of misinformation and rumor floating around. Talk to your pediatrician about your concerns, and let me know if you have any other questions.
