    Vaccine refusals worry US doctors: study

    Vaccine refusals worry US doctors: study

    Mon Oct 3, 4:04 PM ET

    CHICAGO (Reuters) - More than a third of U.S. pediatricians surveyed said they would tell families who refuse all vaccinations for their children to look elsewhere for care, according to a study published on Monday.

    Of 302 pediatricians questioned, 256 said they had encountered a parent who refused to let a child receive at least one vaccination in the previous 12 months, and 162 -- 39 percent of the group -- who had a parent refuse all vaccinations.

    The refusals were most commonly based on safety concerns, worries about children getting multiple vaccines at once, philosophical reasons and religious beliefs, said the report from Chicago's Rush Medical College.

    "In the case of parents refusing specific vaccines, 82 (28 percent of the doctors) said that they would ask the family to seek care elsewhere; for refusal of all vaccines, 116 (39 percent) of pediatricians said they would refer the family" to another doctor, said the report.

    The reason physicians cite most often for wanting to drop such patients were lack of shared goals and lack of trust, added the study published in the October issue of the Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine.

    The study said the rate of unvaccinated children in the United States has risen significantly since 1995. While most parents continue to believe that vaccination is important, a large number express concern about safety, it said.

    World Health Organization said earlier this year that vaccines prevent more than 2 million deaths per year globally, mainly among children; but it said many Internet sites have appeared offering "unbalanced, misleading and alarming vaccine safety information" that is confusing both patients and health workers.

    New Flu Vaccine is Loaded With Mercury

    Flu VaccineGlaxoSmithKline's new flu vaccine Fluarix was approved Wednesday for sale in the USA this fall under an accelerated FDA approval process. Another flu vaccine manufacturer, Chiron, moved closer to getting their license back; it was suspended when their flu vaccine was found to be contaminated with bacteria.

    Chiron's license was suspended by British regulators in October, and the FDA barred U.S. distribution of the vaccine, cutting the nation's expected supply of flu vaccine in half.

    GlaxoSmithKline expects to distribute 8 million doses of Fluarix and will begin shipping immediately. Chiron, if its vaccine is re-approved, could supply 18 million to 26 million doses of Fluvirin.

    It has been six years since the American Academy of Pediatrics and the U.S. Public Health Service joined forces in requesting the removal of all mercury-containing preservative thimerosal from vaccines....

    I guess my wife and I are among those "refusal-niks!"

    We reject and reject only one vaccine...the flu vaccine...

    Was designed for adults over 50 whose immune system has been comprised by another serious ailment or condition...a protective measure.

    Not for healty adults...
    Not for young adults...
    Not for teenagers...
    Not for children...

    And it is the one vaccine that after two years of a CDC recommendation for all THAT STILL HASN'T HAD THE MERCURY REMOVED FROM IT. Your child is being given an ADULT vaccine.!!!

    Even worse is the fact that the CDC and another group had 30+ years to do a multi-year 100,000+ subject trial before making their so called recommendation a couple years back - THEY DIDN"T! They just went ahead as a committee and made the recommendation.

    Screw the scientific process I guess...

    Six months ago two separate studies came out from two different parts of the world at the same time:

    "No matter how successful the implemenation of the flu vaccine, no difference is noted year to year in the flu rate or fatalities from the flu..."

    Last but not least...this is the third year in a row in which the guess for the 3 likely viral types is off/late... are getting last years vaccine again....

    Saddest part is, in order for it to work at all, you have to take the flu vaccine for life - it offers only 3-5 immunity for each strain - assuming they guess right each year.


    Good Luck!
    Not serious about illegals, outsourcing and insourcing? Wait until magicians pull illegals out of their hats...
