Does Vaccinations = Immunizations
are they helpful or harmful?
There is a huge debate as to whether receiving a vaccination actually imparts immunization.
Receiving a vaccine will trigger an immune response:
- Can it be an insult that weakens the immune system especially when an injection is delivered directly into the blood without first encountering the body's first-line defenses?
- Will this vaccination really provoke a long lasting immune response?
- Are you just hedging your bets that this milder insult of the disease/illness is worth the risk than getting a full blown case. Maybe if you are elderly and have a weak immune system that could not resist the real disease ...this could be a good idea.
- Do your infants and children need to be vaccinated for sexually transmitted diseases? Maybe the public health department is suggesting vaccination(s) against these disease as a way to minimize these disease in unscrupulous behaviors of young adults later in life. Perhaps in situations where the family unit has disintegrated into chaos and or parental control of young adults are compromised, then public health mandates can offer control at a young age (newborns-early childhood) in these situations.
If one feels exorbitantly pressured to vaccinate their infant, then my simple advise would be ...wait till your toddler is at least 2 years old and eating solid food. Once a toddler is eating solid food, one's immune system is essentially fully functions and mature enough to mnimize a severe adverse vaccine reaction.
Most holistic care physicians do not let their children be vaccinated. Physicians families are the highest population group that does not vaccinate their children.
Vaccination / Immunizations
Vaccinations Laws are still in Flux (old information 2016)
Senate Bill 277 ~ Elimination of Vaccination Person Belief Exemption ~ passed in the California legislatures and was signed by the governor on June 26, 2015. Note that your child's physician does have the authority to grant a medical waiver if he or she concludes that there are circumstances for which the child's health could be compromised by vaccination(s).
My colleague Dr. Tim O'Shea has prepared two letters that may prove very helpful in establishing your rights to restrict implementation of this proposed vaccination law SB277.
Edit these letters as needed.
Presently there is no way to avoid vaccinations at daycare centers, they follow different state laws.
