Infectious Diseases A-Z: Vaccines prevent diseases

"Vaccinations prevent infections before they occur," says Dr. Vandana Bhide, a pediatrician and internal medicine specialist at Mayo Clinic.?She says, "Childhood diseases, once thought to have been eradicated, such as measles, mumps, rubella and whooping cough, are making a resurgence in the U.S." from waning immunity or lack of immunizations.

Abstract OBJECTIVE: Some parents are hesitant about vaccines and yet still vaccinate their children. Vaccine behaviours are not fixed and parents who are concerned but nonetheless adherent to standard schedules could switch to an unconventional schedule, delaying or cherry-picking vaccines. There is a need to better understand vaccine hesitancy in specific contexts, acknowledging cultural and geographical variation, to ensure interventions targeting hesitancy are well directed and received. METHODS: To identify the behaviours, knowledge and attitudes of 'hesitant compliers' in Perth, Western Australia, nine o...

Conclusion Because the mainstream media has financial interest in promoting vaccines, informed parents must seek information elsewhere about back to school vaccine mandates and exemptions. Parents, as you prepare to send your child back to school, do your homework and determine which exemptions are available in your area. A list of vaccine exemptions for all fifty states is published online by the National Vaccine Information Center. Sharing this article with other parents will also help them make informed decisions about vaccines. References: http://www.nvic.org/vaccine-laws/state-vaccine-requirements.aspx http://www.oma...

By COURTNEY GILDENGIL and LAURA FAHERTY On January 10th, then-President-elect Donald Trump met with Robert F. Kennedy Jr., a vocal skeptic of vaccine safety. Although the details and implications of the session are still unclear, the meeting and several of Trump’s tweets have raised questions among public health experts who wonder what, if anything, Trump might do on the issue as president. A chorus of celebrities and politicians continue to question vaccine safety and propagate a myth linking vaccines and autism, fueled by a fraudulent 1998 article by Dr. Andrew Wakefield that was later retracted. In 2014, RAN...

President-elect Donald Trump made his previously vague stance on vaccines much clearer on Tuesday, when he invited vaccine skeptic Robert F. Kennedy Jr. to chair a panel on vaccine safety and scientific integrity.  Like many people who speak out against current vaccination practices, Kennedy says he’s fine with the concept of the shots but strongly opposes the use of thimerosal ― a preservative that hasn’t been used in childhood vaccines in the U.S. since 2001.  Kennedy’s position against a scary-sounding chemical compound may seem measured, considering he has acknowledged that vaccines h...

By Rebecca Robins The discredited researcher who launched the anti-vaccine movement met with Donald Trump this summer -- and found him sympathetic to the cause. Now, with Trump preparing to move into the White House, leaders of the movement are newly energized, hopeful they can undermine decades of public policy promoting childhood vaccinations. At the most basic level, they're hoping Trump will use his bully pulpit to advance his oft-stated concern -- debunked by an extensive body of scientific evidence -- that there's a link between vaccines and autism. "For the first time in a long...

Conclusions Safe, effective, affordable homeopathic immunizations exist for almost every illness now targeted by unsafe, costly, failed conventional vaccinations. If the goal were to provide protection from disease in a safe manner, why aren’t these safe, inexpensive homeopathic options made available to the public on a large scale? Millions of dollars in healthcare costs would be saved by using a less expensive immunization. Most significant would be the reduction of vaccine-caused diseases including autism, asthma, allergies, autoimmune disorders, diabetes, and cancer. The health of Americans would improve in drama...

This piece comes to us courtesy of EdSource, where it was originally published. Mississippi hasn’t had a case of measles since 1992. West Virginia last saw measles – a highly contagious virus that kills an estimated 314 people worldwide every day – in 2009. Now, with California’s new vaccination law rolling out shot by shot, the state joins Mississippi and West Virginia to become the third in the nation to adopt stringent vaccination school entrance requirements. And medical experts say disease rates are likely to fall in California as they have in those states. “It’s a good club to...

Homœopathic Links 2016; 29: 091-096DOI: 10.1055/s-0036-1582473Allopathic vaccination has many scientifically documented safety deficits that counteract well-publicised benefits. Thimerosal and aluminium, common ingredients in vaccines, can cause neurologic, immunologic and developmental harm. The pertussis vaccine has induced pertussis microorganisms associated with whooping cough to mutate and become more virulent. People vaccinated against pertussis can be asymptomatic carriers and transmitters of the disease, rendering herd immunity, or community immunity, unlikely. People vaccinated against measles can spread the...
