New research shows that well-child doctor appointments for annual exams and vaccinations are associated with an increased risk of flu-like illnesses in children and family members within two weeks of the visit. This risk translates to more than 700,000 potentially avoidable illnesses each year, costing more than $490 million annually. The study was published in the March issue of Infection Control and Hospital Epidemiology, the journal of the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America.
Could the vaccinations translate in to a stressed body which will create the healing symptoms of flu-like disease, ie a body trying to cleanse from toxins?
(Anyway, never mind, we can just keep pushing the flu shot for these children, and rake in more dough.)
