These parents do everything to ensure their children remain healthy and happy, and understand the risks involved in ALL the diseases, how to prevent them if possible, how to treat them at home, risk factors for the diseases and complications, and so on. Learning the truth about tetanus is what is most important.…parents who make a scientifically informed choice don’t make important health decisions on the basis of conspiracy theories online, or call themselves ‘hippies’, or assume that having a science degree makes them well informed; neither do they suddenly find out they are ignorant the night their child falls ill” -Immunization Awareness Society for Informed Choice You can read the full article (HERE) Anyways, all of this can easily turn into a debate over whether or not the article about the unvaccinated boy is true or not. “Tetanus is the name of a sickness you get when the bacterium Clostridium tetani enters your body and flourishes (with a life cycle).And this is my hypothetical question that I have always wanted answered: Why is it ok to give a child the tetanus vaccine (in the form of DTa P) at, say, their 1 year “well baby” visit, but only 2 weeks later, when they unexpectedly end up in the ER with an open would, the child is automatically given another tetanus booster (in the form of another DTa P)? One of the Thinking Moms (Tex) was interviewed on a radio show called: “Vaccine Myths” “Where are all the rusty nails?” “You mean the rusty nails that actually have bacteria from cow manure on them? But if they are such a huge threat – then why don’t they offer the Tetanus vaccine WITHOUT the Diptheria and Pertussis for parents who might consider getting THAT vaccine if they don’t want the combo? Rusty nails are a FAR lesser threat than the aluminum and formaldehyde, and monkey DNA and aborted fetal tissue DNA and neurotoxins that make up these vaccines” There is a story about a boy from New Zealand almost dying from tetanus that is circulating fb right now.Even after that, for life, any time anyone steps on a nail or gets a minor cut, tetanus “boosters” are routinely given.But what sense does it make to pretend to cure a disease that is caused by a puncture would which may have the remotest possibility of containing Clostridium by giving the person another puncture wound that definitely contains Clostridium, or its byproducts?
Sometimes they claim to have a “T” only vaccine, which is untrue.
Most parents who make an informed choice not to vaccinate, will research thoroughly everything they can.
Not just about the diseases, or the vaccines, but what constitutes good health.
It’s one thing to claim that the vaccine could confer immunity before the injury happened.
But to pretend a shot could immunize someone after the infection has occurred trespasses into the realm of superstition. Again, no scientists claim curative value after being infected with Clostridium.
