Do you think that babies in different countries have different abilities to withstand the challenge of being injected with live viruses or to withstand the excipients included in vaccines?
How can you trust the medical establishment, when you see the discrepancies between different immunization recommendation?
This is what causes #LostTrust
Here’s an Example:
According to the CDC, if you have a parent, brother, or sister with a history of immune system problems. you should not take the MMR vaccine. However, the vaccine insert prepared by Merck, the MMR vaccine is still recommend in this case. (As a result , in the US, and in other countries, including Canada, Australia and U.K – MMR is still recommended and given to family members of those with immune-system problems.)
Details of recommendations and links to official sites:
People in the U.K. seem to believe they are the most resilient
The site linked suggests that MMR is only contra-indicated for people who are clinically immuno-suppressed. This includes babies whose mothers have had immuno-suppressive treatment while they were pregnant or breastfeeding.
- if your child has had a bad reaction to a previous dose of the vaccine. It does not rule out having a further dose.
- Taking high-dose steroid tablets
- confirmed anaphylactic reaction
- being treated for cancer
- organ transplant
- bone marrow transplant
- Lowered immune system
Canadian are very resilient according to Health Canada
- Individuals who are pregnant (Women of childbearing age should be advised to avoid pregnancy for at least 1 month following immunization with MMR vaccine)
- Individuals who have a history of anaphylaxis after previous administration of the product (or components of the vaccine)
- Those who have medical conditions that may be contraindicated (for example, individuals with history of convulsions, certain immunosuppressant medications, congenital or hereditary immunodeficiency)
- Persons who have experienced a severe allergic reaction or anaphylaxis to an MMR vaccine component, including gelatin and neomycin,should generally not be vaccinated with MMR.
- Pregnant women should not receive this vaccine, as well as women seeking to become pregnant should avoid become pregnant for 4 weeks subsequent to MMR vaccination.
- Because case reports have linked measles vaccine to deaths in severely immunocompromised individuals, these persons should not be given MMR either.
- Individuals with febrile respiratory illness or other active febrile infection should avoid MMR vaccine.
- In general, persons receiving large daily doses of corticosteroids for 14 days or more should not get MMR vaccine. MMR and other measles-containing vaccines are not recommended for HIV-infected persons with evidence of severe immunosuppression.
- Has any severe, life-threatening allergies. A person who has ever had a life-threatening allergic reaction after a dose of MMR vaccine, or has a severe allergy to any part of this vaccine, may be advised not to be vaccinated. Ask your health care provider if you want information about vaccine components.
- Is pregnant, or thinks she might be pregnant. Pregnant women should wait to get MMR vaccine until after they are no longer pregnant. Women should avoid getting pregnant for at least 1 month after getting MMR vaccine.
- Has a weakened immune system due to disease (such as cancer or HIV/AIDS) or medical treatments (such as radiation, immunotherapy, steroids, or chemotherapy).
- Has a parent, brother, or sister with a history of immune system problems.
- Has ever had a condition that makes them bruise or bleed easily.
- Has recently had a blood transfusion or received other blood products. You might be advised to postpone MMR vaccination for 3 months or more.
- Has tuberculosis.
- Has gotten any other vaccines in the past 4 weeks. Live vaccines given too close together might not work as well.
- Is not feeling well. A mild illness, such as a cold, is usually not a reason to postpone a vaccination. Someone who is moderately or severely ill should probably wait. Your doctor can advise you.
You can still, get the vaccine but you have to notify your physician, it is really up to him to decide.
- aren’t feeling well (for example you have the flu)
- have any severe allergies (such as antibiotics, latex, gelatine)
- are pregnant or plan to be pregnant in the next 2 months
- have received another live vaccination in the last month
- have received blood, blood products or immunoglobulin in the last 3 months
- have a disease (for example HIV/AIDS or cancer) or having treatment that lowers immunity.
- To prevent any possible harm to your baby, you shouldn’t have an MMR vaccination if you are thinking of becoming pregnant. You should also wait 2 months after having MMR vaccination before becoming pregnant.
So like anything else, geography matters. Do your own research.
