American Children Receive 24 Vaccines Before The Age Of 2 – Part 2 of 3
And “The IOM Committee has done a correct job outlining core parental concerns about the safety of the US child vaccine time and identifying the large knowledge gaps that cause parents to continue to ask doctors questions they can’t answer,” said Barbara Loe Fisher, co-founder and president of the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC), a nonprofit league “advocating for the institution of vaccine safety and informed consent protections in the public health system”. But “The most shocking part of this disclose is that the committee could only identify fewer than 40 studies published in the past 10 years that addressed the current 0-6-year-old child vaccine schedule.
We still don’t know if the doubling of the numbers of doses of vaccines that children are given since 1982 is associated with healthfulness problems in premature infants or development of chronic brain and immune system disorders, such as asthma, atopy, allergy, autoimmunity, autism, scholarship disorders, communication disorders, developmental disorders, intellectual disability, attention-deficit disorder, disruptive behavior disorder, tics and Tourette’s syndrome, seizures, febrile seizures and epilepsy”. An permanent furor over the safety of vaccines was largely instigated by research published in 1998 – and since retracted – by British physician Dr Andrew Wakefield that the MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccine was linked with the happening of autism.
Wakefield’s research has been discredited but concerns about vaccination safety linger. The majority of American children – 90 percent – be told all the recommended childhood vaccinations by the time they enter kindergarten, the report stated. But there are parents who choose to delay vaccinations, space them out or forgo them entirely, often as the result of concerns about the safety of the vaccine itself or worries about giving too many injections at one time.
