I'm not asking for my dc. Although i am in the position of having a child who cannot have the triple vaccine.
I think it is very poor policy to refuse to provide the single vaccine. I wondered if the government was rethinking their position and prioritising children's health instead of just clinging to a political position.
Have you asked your GP about the single vaccine for your dc who cannot have the triple vaccine?
If there is a compelling medical reason why they cannot be protected with the MMR, then I would be amazed that an alternative wasn't available.
If it was me in this position, I would be looking at how to get my dc protected asap if I was having problems with getting a single vaccine through the NHS. Protecting my children needs to take priority over government politics.
Come on Mosschops. No-one can categorically state that there is 'no' risk.
I think this thread urging people to queue up for a vaccine with a poor safety record and which is the subject of litigation in several countried and which the people of Swansea do not actually NEED in order to be protected against measles (they need a measles vaccine not a rubella and mumps one) is highly irrresponsible.
I'm sorry if you don't appreciate my comments on this thread but if you are going to urgre people to get an ethically dubious and reactive vaccine i'm afraid people are likely to have an opinion about that.
beachcomber you will clearly take no notice as your mind appears to be closed to the possibility that the MMR jab is both effective and safe but copy and paste this into your browser. it summarises actual research by actual scientists.
Wow! you're very good at taking soundbites that mean the exact opposite of what was actually said.
For the benefit of readers, the take home messages actually were:
private damages are awarded based on a very low threshold of "proof" - correlation rather than causation so the awarding of damages does not constitute evidence of serious damage caused by MMR.
no reputable study has ever shown a link between MMR and autism.
I can point you in the direction of several reputable and peer-reviewed studies that would convince any sensible person but reading your posts - including your most recent one - it is clear that reasoned evidence-based debate is not of interest to you.
I hope no-one reads your nonsense and makes a decision that puts their child - and others - at risk as a result.
Oh please. Vaccine court does not hand out massive sums in compensation in hugely controversial issues easily. Cases can take years, involve hundreds of medical documents, several expert witnesses and teams of legal staff.
Trying to pretend that landmark cases are insignificant and have been given away on a judge's whim is risible.
Finn admits to MMR vaccines causing meningitis and he admits that families have won damage cases for their autistic children. The double think of the 'MMR is safe' mantra is starting to sound very shaky indeed.
I didn't say lightly - I said there is a lower burden of proof than is required to scientifically show causation.
the side-effects associated with MMR are the same as are associated with the single vaccines and weaker versions of those from actually having the diseases. the facts are that in the UK, with proper storage and administration of vaccines, no child has died from the MMR jab but a child dies every year from measles alone.
