Can I ask did hondo17 do anything more than just that. Yes that was rude, and inappropriate for this board, but as a newbie couldn't they be given the benefit of the doubt? Like a newbie on another of the vaccination boards who appeared to be to be posting purely to promote a new website which has anti-vaccination viewpoints was welcomed to the boards.....

Poor Kid! Why vaccinate when the disease has been eradicated and the vaccine itself can do so much harm!

In this case it was the father that was vaccinated and not the child. They vaccinated the father because he was set to deploy to Iraq iwhen this happened. Soldiers are vaccinated for diseases that have been eradicated in the industrialized world (and even the entire world) because of the risk of bio-warfare. Smallpox can be used as a weapon (and has been) so they vaccinate to reduce the risk.

It is incredibly sad that the child had to go through that ordeal and more care should be taken to protect soldiers families. But smallpox vaccinations for some soldiers going into war zones are prudent.

I'll check with Cynthia... typically new (and, heck, usually old) members do get a reminder about the UA and the vax forum guidelines before getting the boot, though that may not necessarily happen on the thread.

Yes, and not only is aluminum contained in Flu Shots, it is also in almost all children's vaccines.  When getting 6 vaccines at a time the aluminum amounts are at high levels.  There is not enough research on the effects of aluminum, however, pre-mature babies cannot be exposed to a tenth of of what these children are getting.  See Dr. Sears "the Vaccine Book" which tells you how to limit the aluminum exposure of vaccines.  It is an excellent book written by a popular pediatrician

Flu shots in the United States do not contain aluminum.

If you scroll down on that page, there is a list of all vaccines containing aluminum. Very interresting.

I read on a lot of health forums about people in sunny climates who continue to be extremely low  in vitamin D and needing to heavily supplement despite going out into the sun. It makes me wonder if environmental pollution is blocking the rays. 

 

As for the flu shot, No Way José! My dh and I have been shot-less since the 90s when we woke up. Even so, I can't even remember the last time I got the flu...I guess we can safely say we're not suffering from a flu shot deficiency, lol.
