  • Hi, I've been looking at this post for a while waiting to see if anyone knew ( I don't) and I'd be interested to know if you found out else where.

    Many years ago, I studied advanced immunology, but to be honest I was a lousy student! Although its my understanding that it is very common for pharmaceutical companies to 'create' scares when they want to off load a vaccine, that doesn't mean we should ignore them as if all but one child in a group receives vaccination then that child is susceptible to becoming extremely sick - much more than if no vaccine had been given at to the others. When my sister had her first child, she was concerned by the debate surrounding inoculation links to autism, and said she would trust my judgment- I said just do it. Her second child however was so much more frail I told her to talk to several doctors and trust her own opinion. We have a lot of ADP in family & autism spectrum disorders- I just couldn't find enough research to give good advice. So, did you ever find out?

  • Here is some advice about who should not have all sorts of vaccinations. After reading this I would speak to your APS specialist.
