Several batches of MMR vaccine were recalled in Canada late last year after six people fell ill in the midst of a vaccination campaign in Alberta. Health Canada advised against the use of the three lots of MMR vaccine sold by MerckFrosst Canada, while it investigated the suspected cases of anaphylaxis, a potentially life-threatening allergic reaction characterized by swelling and difficulty breathing. All six cases involved adults aged 20 to 30 with a history of allergy; all fully recovered.
Actually, on my local news, it was reported that some of the cases had asthma as well as various allergies. I don't think it exonerates the vax as much as it underlines that vaxing is not a one size fits all proposition and that anyone with underlying immune issues should be cautious before vaxing...
