I understand your concern as a parent.
Overall, and that is the goal for society, vac. shots help us. Look back through history and you'll see that...
mercury has (allegedly) been removed from vaccines. If you don't know mercury is like a nuke to brain cells. Years ago they didn't know what it did to the human body. Naturally, one would think "umm, it's fuk'n mercury...hello?"
Based on swine flu studies (just to keep with current issues)
An August 1979 article in the American Journal of Epidemiology reported that surveillance uncovered a total of 1098 patients with onset of GBS (GBS causes the body to attack the CNS and you become paralized) from October 1, 1976, to January 31, 1977. Of those, 532 patients had recently received the swine flu shot and another 15 were vaccinated after they developed GBS symptoms. The article concluded: When compared to the unvaccinated population, the vaccinated population had a significantly elevated attack rate in every adult age group, with most of the affected people sickened within five weeks of immunization. The vaccine has been blamed for upwards of 25 deaths.
Again, with all the above crap I, as a parent, understand your concern...honestly, I do. However, the greater good in your child's case will likely prevail.
Search engine all the vaccines given and print a list of side effects including the time lines if available. This will become very important to you if
1)recognize any initial indicators and
2) have all the information if an issue arises
