I've been reading about encephalitis and the resulting high-pitched scream following DTap vaccines. Does anyone know which specific component in the vaccine causes this? Is it the pertussis? I'm considering getting my baby the kind that doesn't have the pertussis component, mainly because I'm worried most about tetanus, but if we don't know what causes this awful possible reaction I might skip it all together... Thanks!
dT, DT, Td are all special orders in most ERs, clinics, and doctors' offices.
Doctors and drug companies have known since the 1940s that the pertussis component of the DPT shot, both versions, is neurologically toxic. The scientific literature confirms this.
