Am I the only one who was dismayed to see the "complex series of vaccinations" recommended for children these days? On page 21 of the August, 2006, Sheridan Press, Back to School insert, the list not only shows a significant rise in cost, but also a frightening increase in antigens injected into their bodies.
In our impassioned crusade to wipe out infectious diseases, have we been creating chronic allergic and auto-immune illnesses in our children?
If your child is given all of the recommended doses, he will receive over 100 antigens by way of injection, bypassing the normal portals of entry, such as the mouth and nose, by the time he is seven years old. This is because there are sometimes many antigens in one vaccine. For instance, each dose of Prevnar, the pneumococcal conjugate vaccine, has eight antigens (seven pneumoniae serotypes plus a diphtheria protein).
Philip Incao, M.D., described how vaccines affect the immune response in his 1999 article, How Vaccines Work. http://www.ei-resource.org/articles/gulfwar-art07.asp He explained that vaccination stimulates the immune system just enough to produce antibodies, remembering the disease antigen, but does not stimulate it enough to provoke an "acute inflammatory response by the cellular immune system," which would sicken the person with the very disease the vaccine tried to prevent.
His clear description revealed why the many vaccines we give our children shift the delicate balance of the immune system away from the acute inflammatory discharging side (the cell-mediated side or Th1) toward the antibody-producing side (Th2).
One of his conclusions was that vaccines are usually good at preventing someone from showing evidence of a certain illness, but they will not improve the person's health or his immune system. We need to heed Dr. Incao's warning that although vaccinations decrease acute discharging inflammatory reactions, they increase the tendency to chronic allergic and auto-immune reactions.
Rita Hoffman, in an article on hypersensitivity, said, "Atopic disorders are the cluster of 3 related disorders, allergies, asthma, and eczema with anaphylaxis being the most severe form of allergic reaction. Atopic disorders are pervasive and raise the alert that the immune system has been sensitized and has shifted away from its normal functioning TH1 mode into a chronically reactive TH2 mode."

Here are a few interesting facts about some of the vaccines in the recommended schedule. Prevnar vaccine's package insert, under the heading, Carcinogenesis, Mutagenesis, Impairment of Fertility, states, "Prevnar has not been evaluated for any carcinogenic or mutagenic potential, or impairment of fertility."
The flu vaccine has been recommended for pregnant women as well as for infants. The 2005 – 2006 Fluzone Influenza Virus Vaccine package insert says, under the heading Pregnancy Category C, "Animal reproduction studies have not been conducted with Influenza Virus Vaccine. It is not known whether Influenza Virus Vaccine can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman or can affect reproduction capacity. Influenza Virus Vaccine should be given to a pregnant woman only if clearly needed. For guidance regarding use in pregnant women, see Indications and Usage section."
There are three commonly used vaccines that were propagated from the lung tissue of two aborted babies, one male, one female. These vaccines are rubella (part of the MMR, or measles, mumps, rubella vaccine), chickenpox (varicella), and hepatitis A. There are alternatives for both rubella and hepatitis A, but these products are not available in the United States. These three are in the recommended schedule for our children.
Other vaccines that were propagated using fetal tissue from abortion are combinations such as rubella-mumps (Biavax), rubella-measles (MR-VAX) and Hepatitis A and B (Twinrix). A newer one combines MMR with chickenpox (ProQuad). Several flu and Avian flu vaccines under development also use fetal cell lines from abortion.

Wyoming state law allows both medical and religious exemptions to vaccination.
