New vaccine required for incoming seventh-graders

While you're shopping for school supplies, add a shot in the arm to the list of items your seventh-grader needs before classes start. Incoming seventh-graders must now receive a booster vaccine for diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis because of concerns about pertussis, or whooping cough, health officials said.

Incoming seventh-graders must now receive a booster vaccine for diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis because of concerns about pertussis, or whooping cough, health officials said.

Whooping cough is a respiratory infection easily spread by coughing and sneezing.

Do a search "vaccine reaction"  Our children are grown, many of our pets have passed. Even 1% reaction is huge, especially if it affects YOU.  In automotive manufacturing we speak of parts per million in defects.  The only vaccine I do for our dogs is mandated by law, rabies.  Too bad medical can't realte to PPM (parts per million)

 Yellow snow, Your dogs have never had distemper vaccine ? You must have a resilient breed. Good for you .

Outside lookin in

I suggest you all read the book "The horrors of vaccines" wriiten in the 1920's.  Remember, you don't have to get your children vaccinated (by law)....The schools have a form you have to fill out first.  But you have to ask. There are Religious waivers!  Better yet...Get your kids out of the government schools!!

Parents, you don't have to get it.  Skip it.  Enough is enough with this nonsense.

Abnormal brain growth and function are features of autism, an increasingly common developmental disorder that now affects 1 in 60 boys in the US. Now researchers from the University of Pittsburgh and Thoughtful House Center for Children in Austin, Texas, have found remarkably similar brain changes to those seen in autism in infant monkeys receiving the vaccine schedule used in the 1990’s that contained the mercury-based preservative thimerosal.
The group’s findings were published yesterday in the journal Acta Neurobiologiae Experimentalis. They used scanning techniques that assessed both brain growth and brain function in the same animals over time. The research team was able to see differences in the way the brains of vaccinated and unvaccinated animals developed. Scans were performed before and after the administration of primary MMR and DTaP/Hib boosters that were given at the human equivalent of 12 months of age.

Throughout the study period, vaccinated animals showed an increase in total brain volume – a feature of the brain in many young children with autism - when compared with unvaccinated animals. However, a specific part of the brain associated with emotional responses that is thought to be important in autism, the amygdala, did not show abnormalities until after the 12-month vaccines had been given.

I really like what "outside lookin in" says... I agree... get your kids out of the government schools.  They are the real problem.  They teach kids everything about sex, but when it comes to our constitution and the history of our country, they seem to be "brain dead".... It's a shame when other children from other countries know more about United States than our own children do.  I am very leary of the things our government want to inject into our children...  One day they may require a "chip" to be placed in our children... will you say yes to that too????  It's coming ... it's just a matter of time.

I've owned dogs for over 35 years, 2 to 5 dogs at all times, must have good blood, never had a vet visit with a diagnosis of distemper.  All my dogs were over 14 when I lost them. 

Next time a dog is mega-dosed with a multi-vaccination go to your calendar, circle the date exactly 6 months from the vac. date, and see how close you come to that date before you need an unexpected problem with your dog.  It happens.

Just Saying

I think we should feel blessed that modern medicine has developed vaccines for these fatal diseases. Before you decide vaccines aren't important, I would suggest you look up the illnesses that these vaccines are immunizing you and your loved ones against, or better yet talk to your doctor/pediatrician.  If our population continues to deny immunizing their children, our world will surely someday know these diseases again.
