The children had symptoms including swollen lymph nodes and abscesses, and 50 have been hospitalized since March. In a televised address on November 22,Romanian Health Minister Raed Arafat said that TB vaccinations would stop until the cause of the side effects is determined.

 

 

I had chronic swollen lymph nodes following the BCG vaccination for several years as a teen.

Seems good that they stop vaccinating to check serious side efffects. Another demonstration that vaccine safety check work?

More anecdote - I had BCG with no problems as a teenager. As did the majority of my class mates (the others had parents who declined the shot for them - as is their right).

Mother of two living in UK. Daughter (2007) born in USA, son (2010) born here. I'm pro natural birth, midwife care, breastfeeding, co-sleeping, baby wearing and a keen advocate of cloth diapering. I'm a full time working research scientist (physical sciences) and I'm pro-vaccine.
