We used to watch that show when we were kids (my sis and I) and it was awesome. Even as young children we could still get into it at times and I
remember this particular show when it was originally aired (I think).
I had already made up my mind that neither I, nor my children would be getting this shot, but this really cemented it for me, and would be a good link
to put up on my facebook page as well.
One more thing that bothers me about immunisations in general is that I discovered a few years back that my little girl (who is now 9) is allergic to
the sulpha that is used in the tetanus injections. She gets an extremely large, hard, red, hot bumpy mass on the injection site (we're talking HUGE
mass) that takes weeks to go away. Her last two immunizations with tetanus did that, the second time being even worse than the first.
I was shocked when her nurse tried to tell me (after I'd asked about what she can do in the future to avoid having sulpha in the injections) and the
nurse told me "oh..... it'll probably go away (the allergy) with time." I got pretty irritated and asked her if she herself would take that chance
if she had the same allergy with it. The possibility of it getting worse on next injection is a hell of a lot higher than it just suddenly getting
better. Are they going to be singing that tune if their airways suddenly decide to close up?
I honestly do not think that the majority of nurses and dr's out there know what they're giving patients. I don't think they do much, if any
research and they're just blindly following orders. Scary and sad.
