I saw an ad on television for Menactra meningococcal vaccine.
After goolging this because of peculiar side effect disclosures, here's what I found.
At this link
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has created guidelines for parents to know what vaccines they – and their children –
should receive. The following are the CDC meningococcal vaccination recommendations:
Children 11 through 18 years of age should get one dose of the meningococcal vaccine.2
The best time to immunize a child with the meningococcal vaccine is when they are 11 or 12 years of age.2
Children who didn’t receive the meningococcal vaccine at 11 or 12 years of age should get it as soon as possible.2
College freshmen living in dormitories should get the meningococcal vaccination.2
The CDC also recommends the meningococcal vaccination for children 2 through 10 years of age who have a damaged spleen or have had their spleen
removed, and those with an immune system disorder
The CDC recommends that children with the following conditions should not get the meningococcal vaccine or should wait: those who have had a
life-threatening allergic reaction to a previous dose; those with a life-threatening allergy to any vaccine ingredient; those who are moderately or
severely ill when the meningococcal immunization is scheduled; those who have had Guillain-Barré syndrome.2 If your child has any of the above
conditions, it is important that you talk to your doctor.
So recommendation is age 2 through college freshmen. except as indicated above.
Menactra vaccine is given to persons 2 through 55 years of age for active immunization against invasive meningococcal disease caused by N
meningitidis serogroups A, C, Y, and W-135. Menactra vaccine will not stimulate protection against infection caused by N meningitidis other than
serogroups A, C, Y, and W-135.
Side effects to Menactra vaccine include injection site pain, redness, and swelling; headache or fatigue. Other side effects may occur. Vaccination
should be avoided by persons with known hypersensitivity (severe allergic reaction) to any ingredient of the vaccine, including latex (which is used
in the vial stopper), or by any persons previously diagnosed with Guillain-Barré syndrome. There is a potential for an increased chance of getting
Guillain-Barré syndrome following vaccination. Vaccination with Menactra vaccine may not protect all individuals.

There is a potential for an increased chance of getting Guillain-Barré syndrome following vaccination.
Vaccination with Menactra vaccine may not protect all individuals.
Menactra vaccine is indicated for active immunization against invasive meningococcal disease caused by N meningitidis serogroups A, C, Y, and
W-135 in persons 11 through 55 years of age.
Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) has been reported in temporal relationship following administration of Menactra vaccine.
So we have
ages 11 through college freshmen,
ages 2 - 55
ages 11 - 55
the last link above has an adolescent immunization schedule
The schedule shows that ages 7 - 10 and 13 - 18 are high risk groups,
while ages 11 - 12 are recommended ages.
They recommend 11 -12 but give it to 2 - 55? and don't take if you are allergic to latex?
How do you know if you are allergic to latex? Has anyone here ingested latex to determine if you are allergic?
Who would want to inject latex into us, out elders and our children?
Evidently USA and Canada for sure.
I'm so tired of these advertisments that want us to take drugs that can kill, cause irreversable negative effects, disease and organ failure
are "good for us" and they all ask that we inquire about the advertised drug with our doctors.
My daughter got her final HPV's three weeks ago.
The next day, she had what looked like a cold sore around a nostril.
The following morning, it looked worse and she complained of pain on the roof of her mouth and in her nasal area. It looked unlike a cold sore and we
went to emergency.
She had contracted MRSA and the doctor was very concerned about the infection reaching her brain. After cleaning, antibiotics, high dose antibiotic
cream, we were told to return the next day.
We arrived at ER the following day and she was taken immediately.
The infection already looked much better and the doctor removed a lot of puss from her nasal with a long cotton swab and was glad to see the infection
After another week of oral and topical antibiotics, the infection was gone,
but the second week after the HPV immunization, one week after MRSA was contracted and treated,
my daughter got ill and had a temperature of 104 degrees.
She was out of school for two weeks, (had to bring assignments and have her study at home).
The fever was between 102 and 104 for three days, 101 the fourth and finally normal on the fifth day.
She also had a flu shot last fall as did my woman (my woman's oncologist insisted because of chemo she couldn't get the flu)
Both of them got flu-like symptoms within days of the shots.
I have obstained from these contraversial inoculations, and I have not had any flu or cold, even being around those who did constantly.
Is it psychosomatic? or dumb luck? or something else more sinister?
Can someone explain to me the benefit of these immuniazations and inoculations?
Convince me why I should inject myself with these concoctions and drugs with deadly side effects.
