I am copying this from the http://healthyhomeeconomist.com site. It is so sad! The following words are written by Sarah Pope, the blogger at the link above.
If you’ve ever doubted whether many pediatricians are really just drug reps wearing white coats, you won’t anymore after reading this story.
Baby Stacy and her twin sister Lesly were born one month premature by C-Section. Stacy needed to be resuscitated after birth and she and her sister spent four days in an incubator.
Stacy’s parents, who live in Belgium, decided to follow the advice of their doctor in December 2011 and have the babies vaccinated at 8 weeks old. Both babies were living at home by that time and were doing well.
On the day of the vaccinations, Stacy had a cold and was not feeling well. Stacy’s parents were told not to worry and that vaccinating a sick child would be safe. There is also a history of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome and allergies in the family, but it is not clear whether the doctor even bothered to ask about this.
Shockingly, both twins received Rotarix, a shot to prevent severe gastroenteritis, Prevnar, a dual vaccination for meningitis and pneumonia, as well as Infanrix Hexa, a SIX IN ONE jab containing diptheria, tentanus, polio, pertussis, hep B, and Haemophilus type B – all in a single day!
Stacy became unwell one week after receiving these shots with a fever of 103.8F. The parents decided to reduce the fever with Perdolan. As Stacy continued to not do well, the parents took her to the hospital.
At the hospital, Stacy was diagnosed with a blood and chest infection but her parents were told it was not serious. Stacy was given medication and put on a drip feed and remained in the hospital for observation.
Stacy’s father was told that the vaccines had nothing to do with Stacy’s illness and all attempts to link the two events were strongly denied.
The pediatrician told Stacy’s parents that she was fine and probably just suffering from gastroenteritis, which she was already vaccinated against.’
