Do vaccines cause developmental delays?

Does anybody know of a 2006 Study about getting rid of the preservatives on some vaccines and decrease of developmental delays in children?

  • if your child is sick - dont vax - dont allow more than one shot at a time - ask to see the insert, if it has thermirisol (sp?) refuse it... that is mercury... children with gut issues should not be vaxed... never give tylenol (creates a reaction - hard for the immune system to process) about that study,,, yes i am informed, my son has most of his vaxes up to date... they have removed most mercury from shots, but not all, that is why you need to check in insert, they actually make flu shots with and without mercury (named thermerisol) for kids, make sure you get the mercury free ones... most kids can get the regular shots at regular times and are fine, some arent, protect your child and research the options, as the parent you have the right to contril and have to sign off for all shots.... inform yourself and you will feel better about the process, dont trust doctors!

  • I don't think vaccines cause developmental delays across the board. I believe if you have a child like mine with numerous ear infections, antibiotics and digestion problems, vaccines was just another taxation on his poor immune system. Our children aren't all the same. They should not be treating all the same.

  • yes... but it was in a select few combined vaccines (not all manufactures), but it did not decrease the mercury levels (which have been found to be the main link between vaccines and autism, and many other delays).
    unfortunately, there are no safety guidelines in place to monitor the amount of mercury in a vax, or the strength of the virus, or virus protein. lot to lot, manufacturer to manufacturer it varies. where one child may get multiple vax without ill effects (because it is lesser in strength), another, less fortunate child may only receive ONE and suffer multiple ill effects.
    one of the vaccines that was altered was varicella (spelling?) which is chicken pox, and was the culprit in MANY cases of severe chicken pox, and had a significant link to may other ill effects- extremely high temp-up to 105- seizure, developmental delays, etc.
    in 2000, NC made it a "mandatory" school vaccine. cont....

    When we know that vaccines contain mercury - why on Earth would anyone want to take a chance of damaging the growth of their unborn or young child. With all the Autism in America now, parents have to become suspect of all external elements and especially anything that goes into your bodies !!! (imo)......P.S. - I'm hearing DOCTORS say they wouldn't allow this vaccines to be administered to their familys. Get it at your own risk.....

  • ...cont.
    children who received the vaccine between 2000-2002 had a significantly higher rate of learning disabilities, diagnosed between kindergarten and 1st grades. the stats keep stacking up, as children with parents that are less tuned into their growth and development are weeded out by the school districts. including, but not limited to ADD, Dyslexia, Autism. the statistics were astounding...
    to say that your child has suffered no ill effects, well, you're playing vax roulette. there are some things you may not find out about for years.

  • No, they do not.

  • Yes I believe vaccines cause lots of side effects-including developmental delays. The blood brain barrier is not developed ina child until they reach 2-3 years old. Their bodiy is not desighned to detox aluminium, mercury, latex, animal dna etc etc Plus ZERO studies have been done to see how the synergy of all these ingredients affects the human baby.

    I have not seen your study but even though they took out thimerosol in 2001 autism etc is still increasing. Mercury is not the only dangerous ingredient.
    here is their ingredient list from the CDC themselves

    From the CDC web site:

  • You might want to google Dr Tenpenny or Dr Mercoa for your study...

  • Please do some research on vaccines! There was a recent study published in a medical journal showing a correlation (not a causation) between the Hep B vaccine and autism. I'm not sure about all of the vaccines - I have delayed and selectively vaccinated my kids, but it's something every parent has to decide for their family and you should gather as much information as possible to make that decision.
