I was having a discussion with my friend (pro-vax) about vaccinations, and she claims that "all" of the information "on the internet" is about American vaccinations, and that Canadian vaccinations are completely different.<br><br>
I am wondering whether you have any sources either backing up or refuting her claim? I must admit, it really made me think.

Nope. Find out which specific vaxes by which makers are given in Canada. Most are exactly the same ones given in the US.<br><br>

SOme things are (or at least were) different. Hep B is given to school children, not babies, for example. And DPT/polio/Hib is all in one shot, not multiple.

So timing, but not a difference in the vax itself, and the combo one is available here too <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>

What is she saying? That they make "Canadian" vaxes?<br><br>
No. Vaccines are made and then shipped out all over the place. There aren't "American specific" vaccines.<br><br>
All countries have their own schedules, etc and some countries use different vaxes, (example IPV or OPV) but that's really the only difference.

i believe some vax are different since it can be one vax to fight disease "X" but made by a few vax manufacturer. make sense?<br><br>
but the vax schedule for the American and Canadian are about the same, some slight difference but for most part, its the same.

Right. But the US uses multiple manufacturers for vaxes. Not sure on Canada, but I would bet that all the vaxes in use there are also in use in the US.<br><br>

It's at birth here in NB too. I teach grade 5 and the grade 4s no longer get Hep B vaccinations. They caught up about 2 years ago.<br><br>
I think about 3 provinces are like that, I remember reading that on the public health website.<br><br>
We also have a 5-in-1 vaccination here. It's different than the ones they use in the US. It's called PENTACEL.

Is the 5-in-1 available in Ontario?<br><br>
Also, anyone know if it's necessary to ask for mercury-free vax still, or is it a given at this point that there's no mercury in them anymore? I'm just asking this based on what I read in the Sears Baby Book, but it's several years old now.

you can find a full list of all of the vaccines that are used in Canada at<br><a href="http://www.phac-aspc.gc.ca/publicat/cig-gci/index-eng.php" target="_blank">http://www.phac-aspc.gc.ca/publicat/.../index-eng.php</a><br>
The Canadian Immunization Guide-Seventh Edition-2006<br>
Starting on Page 7 there is a listing of all vaccines used and you will see that Thimerosal (TM) is still used as a preservative in many vaccines. Not to mention that it also lists nasty stuff like mouse serum and bovine serum.<br>
What I would like to draw attention to is the adjuvants aluminum phosphate or aluminum hydroxide (Alum) there has been work done that shows that adjuvant can cause brain inflammation.<br><a href="http://www.russellblaylockmd.com/" target="_blank">http://www.russellblaylockmd.com/</a> has more info.<br><br>
I don't think that the issue is just mercury anymore, in order to get the full picture on vaccines and vaccine damage we need to look at the whole vaccine.

I heard it so many times in so many versions, it's not funny. Right down to the stance that the same pharmaceutical companies make 'good' vaccines for their own countries and 'bad' ones for 'us' - everyone else, intentionally, as a way of genocide. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"> And that the studies conducted overseas are not real since we can't verify them. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"> And we in each country have our own unique antibodies, vaccines, diseases, **** sapiens, you name it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"><br><br>
Basically, all of the above are the 'peace of mind' mantras that help not to think about what people don't want to think about. Pretty much, unless it is coming from 'their ped', they don't want to know.
