I believe understanding current information about vaccinations, why they are important, when they are important, and how to treat yourself or another after a vaccination is urgent enough to spend time doing research and communicating with your friend
s, family, and medical advisers on an ongoing basis. Remember, Vaccinations are not completely safe but they may save your life.
Importance Of New Vaccination Information
New information about vaccines can be found in the news but more importantly from your medical professional who should be completely up-to-date on any vaccines they are suggesting for you or your child. Vaccines expire and taking an expired vaccine may not have the same effect as a current one so be sure to double check the expiration. Also, some people have accused medical institutions of providing adult vaccines to children or Vice versa so be sure to double check the type of DTaP or other vaccine you are giving to a child or adult.
My Vaccination Opinion
I am not a medical professional nor do I work in the medical industry. I know very little about vaccinations and the health industry and these are just my opinions based on information I have read, seen, and discussed with other public health professionals, parents, Doctors, and people who work in the medical industry.
Vaccinations can be a way to make money, they can be a life improving/saving heath benefit. Vaccinations are also potentially unsafe to yourself or your child if taken incorrectly. Every time you receive a vaccination, I suggest confirming that it is more beneficial to have the vaccination than not to. Be sure to take into consideration the current situation and information available at the time. Check the current report and information when traveling to see if a vaccination is recommended by any traveling advisory institution. Educate yourself about it, talk to your advisers, and do not just believe one person’s opinion.
2010 Vaccination Examples
This photo includes some current examples of real Vaccinations given in 2010 including:
- RotaTec – 1 Single Dose 2 mL tube
- DTaP-IPV (5/2011 expiration) with ACTHIB Made by Sanofi Pediacel
- Prevnar 13 .5 mL single dose by Wyeth Pharmaceuticals Inc.
CDC on Vaccinations
The CDC seems to be one of the more developed sources of information on Vaccines.
The CDC publishes information on all of the most available types of Vaccines and a lot of information about the benefits and drawbacks. Some of the information contains logical fallacies and some fluff but I suggest reading it before taking or giving a Vaccination to a child or teen.
FDA on Vaccinations
The FDA provides some recall information and reporting tools for Vaccinations however it is unknown how much of the information they receive is published and available to the public. They also provide some approval information and some good historical information on vaccination approvals and recalls.
EPA on Vaccinations
The EPA has about 1300 pages of information that contain the word vaccination or vaccine but they normally suggest to “keep your vaccinations current” and do have great notes on historical data about vaccinations and their role on preventing future problems.
In this link the EPA shows here how vaccinations and mercury were a concern in the past for children but have now been shown to be less of a concern or no concern now which pediatricians I have spoken with would agree with.
CHOP on Vaccinations
CHOP provides extensive videos and written information about vaccines and help educate parents on vaccination schedules. It is easy to understand and has some intersting stats to consider.
Paul A. Offit, MD who seems to the face of this part of CHOP is a great speaker although it is obvious he, like many others, are exposing this type of information for profit so take things you hear as an opinion and read other sources as well.
After some vaccinations many Doctors will recommend some type of pain medication like Acetaminophen and to watch symptoms of any signs of concern. These may include rashes, high temperature, and febrile seizures. Call your pediatrician right away if you experience any side effects and report them to the FDA at VAERS:
Call VAERS at (800) 822-7967 | Fax VAERS at (877) 721-0366
Also, I suggest letting any other relevant institutions know about the side effects including NVIC:
By reporting any problems you can help find problem areas or bathes of Vaccinations. I believe we should all be aware of any problems so I also encourage you to post any concerns publicly but anonymously.
Vaccinations and Febrile Seizures
This video shows some developed opinions on Febrile seizures:
Important 2010 Vaccination Information
A professional friend who believes that, “MMR is no longer manufactured with thimerosal preservative (even though this has been proven to have no risks
associated with it).”
We have found a trusted medical professional that has said that they have treated people suffering from the effects from:
- Hepatitis B
- Measles / Mumps / Rubella
That same medical professional has administered or seen over 10,000 people vaccinated but has never heard of a complication that needed hospital or clinic care. If you are interested in contact information for our experienced professional please email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Remember, vaccinations are not 100% safe. There are things you should look for after a vaccination and it is suggested to stay at the vaccination office for 15 or more minutes after the Vaccination and be aware of side effects for days after.
