Please, I need advise about vaccinations
Thank you! We are moving from Calfornia to St. Thomas next month. Our son has Autism and his high functioning. Is there a waiver available to sign so he may start school in St. Thomas but not receive the vaccines he has not had? Again, thank you SO much!!!
Not to my knowledge, and there shouldn't be. The autism-vaccination claim has been thoroughly debunked in the scientific community, and there is no increased risk associated with vaccination.
By not vaccinating your child however, you put his peers (and him) at drastically increased rates of easily preventable diseases. Some immunocompromised children cannot receive vaccinations and depend on you vaccinating your child so theirs does not die from an easily preventable disease.
Please, forget all the hype, vaccinate your child.
This website details the official proceedings against the man responsible for all of this...he has been struck off the medical registry in the UK - he can no longer practice medicine. He was bribed by lawyers suing the vaccine companies and developed a competing vaccine that would have made him a very rich man if the vaccines had been banned!
The entire autism-vaccination scare story was based on faked research by one man...there is absolutely NO evidence that there is a problem with vaccinating children. This is not a case of bad old "big" medicine...this is a case of one very stupid and callous man putting 1000's of children in deadly danger of dying from some utterly preventable illnesses when their parents did not have them vaccinated.
The following is a quote from a paper published by the US National Autism Society:
"The vaccine controversy has engulfed rational dialog about the etiology of autism in ways that many responsible scientists do not believe serves the field best."
There are many many more likely contenders for the culprit - heredity, environmental poisons...but NOT vaccines.
However there is a lot of very real and very horrific evidence on death and disabilities due to preventable childhood diseases.
Please rethink your position, look at the facts from the UK that started all the "vaccine" nonsense.
Wakefield has been found guilty of acting unethically during the time he conducted the famous, and now retracted, 1998 case report of 12 children that questioned if a childhood vaccine caused a new form of autism.
Please reconsider and have your child vaccinated.

Allison: If you believe that your son's autism is related to vaccination, you will find many people in the Virgin Islands who share this belief.
You will also find many people who believe the sun goes around the earth, alchemy is real, and homeopathy will cure anything, but that doesn't make it so.
