Amy, the MMR vaccine does not equal all vaccines!
All I do know is that our lives changed on September 27, 2001 when our daughter had her 4 month vaccines. That’s when we had the first seizure of what is as of yesterday 350 or so, so far.
This was promptly written off as “just febrile, 1 in a million that she’ll have another.” The doctors were all of the “no big deal” opinion. When we requested our medical records a few months ago, we saw that they actually wrote “febrile seizure, if it was even a seizure.”
No more seizures until the next day we received vaccines at 8 months. THE DAY. That’s when all hell broke loose in the seizure department. She had some VERY long seizures. Seizures over 5 minutes can cause brain damage.
1/3 of kids with autism have seizures. The fact that these kids are just assumed to be the same as cases with no seizures, shows that this issue is much more complex and there are very specific subsets of autism that shouldn’t be ignored.
In our case, I suspect vaccine = seizures; extended seizures and/or seizure meds = autism. It’s just not as simple as “vaccines don’t cause autism.”
I don’t see that any vaccine adverse event report was ever submitted on us at 4 months or 8 months, even though we spent a week in the hospital after the second round of vaccines.
Visit the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) and see for yourself that vaccine injuries are real. http://vaers.hhs.gov/ Specifically, look at the seizures reported from the DTaP.
On that 4 month day, 9/27/2001, she received the following:
* DTaP (SmithKline, Lot # 998A2)
* Comvax (Merck, Lot # 1827K)
* IPV (Pasteur, Lot # 81556)
* Prevnar (Lederle, Lot # 481556)
