Safe Vaccination Schedule

immunizationWe’re getting ready to launch some amazing new products, and an even better website within the next few weeks, so be sure to check back for some big, great changes.

This week, we’re taking another look at the Safe Vaccination Schedule. With school starting soon, it’s important to be on par with what the protocol is.

A very common concern of all parents is vaccinations. Years ago, the only questions surrounding vaccinations was “When?” and “Which One?”  There were vaccination schedules given to parents when their children were born, and each month, year, etc. the child was taken to their doctor and given the appropriate vaccination.

Today, there’s a whole lot more concern surrounding vaccinations and they extend much further than the question of “when?”.  The dangers of vaccinations have been discussed here on our blog, and elsewhere over the last few years. Mercury and other damaging heavy metals have been found in vaccines. Previously nothing more than just another ingredient, Mercury has been found to cause harm to the body and mind of children, especially those with Autism.

The concerns of vaccination are growing both publicly and professionally. How safe are vaccines? Which vaccines should a baby and/or child get? Which should be skipped over?

The safer vaccination schedule is much more than just a list of vaccines that a child should get. It points out the dangers of particular vaccines, as well as questions you should ask your physician. Stephanie F. Cave published a “Safe Vaccine Schedule”, and on it, the very first thing that she says to do is to ask about preservatives in vaccines. If there is Thimerosal, then you do not allow the vaccine to be given. Thimerosal contains mercury.

Step’s 2 and 3, insist that the child is not ill, and is also very full of Vitamin C for the days leading up to the vaccination. It is also suggested that vaccinations are spread out, and all vaccines aren’t given in one day. Remember, vaccines are injecting organisms into the body. Too many can be detrimental.

Children should be held off on their Varicella Vaccine until they are around 12 years of age. Before children are given MMR boosters, it’s important their their titers are checked. A large percentage of children are immune after one shot and do not need an additional shot.

When it comes to Measles, Mumps, and Rubella, if you’re seeking protection, it’s recommended that you get each vaccine separately, or simply allow your child to get them naturally. It’s important to always monitor your children for adverse reactions to vaccines, and any reactions that make you nervous should be reported immediately to your physician.

Food allergies play a large role in vaccines. A large majority of Autistic children have some sort of food allergy and gut problems. Several vaccine will affect those allergies adversely. If your child is intolerant of yeast, avoid the Hepatitis B shot; Eggs, avoid the MMR vaccine; neomycin, MMR or Varisella shots. A Gelatin intolerance; avoid the Varivax vaccine.

Unlike the traditional vaccine schedule, the safer vaccine schedule alerts parents on steps that they can take to ensure that their child is in the best health possible for receiving the vaccine and beyond. Again, its important to remember that a vaccine contains a weak form of the virus that is being immunized. If your child has a cold, their immune systems are already at work fighting another virus, let alone another foreign one being injected.

A vaccine schedule is and should not be a simple list of recommended vaccines and dates in which to get them. There are steps and processes that need to be adhered to in order to ensure proper body reaction. Though nothing can be 100% preventative of illnesses, the safe vaccination schedule shows more concern for the child’s well-being than the repetitive and seemingly constant immunizations.

With the ever growing concern surrounding vaccinations, its very important that as parents, we are aware of the dangers and risks as well as the benefits of vaccines. As we consistently say, knowledge is key.
