Therefore, are you implying that vaccines could not have been the source of ear infections to otherwise healthy and non-diseased babies and young children who have had Prevnar? Your premise is vague because even for a child who has not received any vaccines will manifest a myriad of opportunistic infections and diseases in the setting of malnutrition and poor health.

I think we will have to continue this via Pm, but, in short here:

-you implied that ear infections did not exist before the hib or prevnar vaccines
-I said they did and showed evidence

nothing about the possibility of prevnar ALSO causing ear infections...

that's all.


but we can take this back to the subject of the thread with this article:

Prevnar didn't keep my dd from chronic ear infections. She ended up with sterile bowls because of all of the antibiotics. When we took her off of the antibiotics (why not, they weren't actually working) and used nutrition and natural medicine we had them cleared up within 3 weeks (after a 9 month fight on the ABX) She's 12 now and we're STILL dealing with candida and bowel issues from those abx.
