Vaccination – is it safe or not?

I recently had to vaccinate my baby. We postponed the immunisation process that should be done between two and four months. She got the vitamin K and BCG shot when she was born and at eight months the first shot for everything else. First few days looked like everything will be fine and there were no side effects but maybe a week after she started to get very sick. She had a high temperature, really bad cough, completely blocked nose and she was having difficulties to breathe. I thought that this should be a normal reaction to vaccine and that will pass shortly. I wasn’t too concerned although this was actually her first time being sick since she was born.

After a week of coughing all day and night I decided anyway to take her to the doctor just to make sure everything is ok. We left the hospital with the respirator mask for asthma. It was a bit of a shock for me because she was perfectly healthy baby and now suddenly she is suffering to breathe normally? Doctor was not concerned and advised us to use this for a week and she will get better. Everything went back to normal in a week and it was a relief for me but at the same time I started to seriously think about side effects of vaccination.

We have noticed other changes with Michelle. She was a very patient and calm baby, she carefully listened to every word I said and understood everything. After the vaccine she started to get very fussy and impatient, sometimes even aggressive and loud. I couldn’t understand really what was going on, so I tried to convince myself that we are entering a new stage of her life. Even her sleeping routine changed almost instantly. When I put her to bed she would go completely crazy, screaming and kicking with her legs and waking up many times through the night. That was a big difference from the routine we had before.

Four weeks after the first shot she got the second one. At that time I decided to really pay attention for any side effects. The cough was back which was very interesting and her mood changed even more. Some of the rashes that were healed already came back. That was for me and my husband a red flag. We started with a research and discovered many interesting things. We have listened to so many different stories how children became autistic and got different allergies, even became asthmatic. Honestly it is very difficult to understand that majority of babies nowadays have some kind of problems.

I always believed doctors when it came to vaccination and I always said that babies need to be vaccinated. Of course we don’t want our babies to get sick so we have to protect them. But do we really protect them with vaccination? I am not a scientist or a doctor but I have heard enough to decide that Michelle will not be vaccinated anymore. I had my flu and whooping cough shot as well when I was pregnant and ended up with a very bad chest infection. Never been so sick before but thankfully my body was strong enough to fight trough.

If a mother would ask me for advice now what to do, I wouldn’t say yes you have to vaccinate your child. I would suggest every mother to read about it and then decide. Don’t go in without any knowledge as I did. I know that in some countries it’s still mandatory but here in the UK we can decide. I am not a mother that is promoting the anti vaccination movement, I am just here to share my experience and my opinion. Please share your opinion about that and maybe even your own experience.

  1. When I was pregnant I couldn’t have any meds for my cold as I was too close to my due date. I joined a natural immunity group on FB. Many of the members were also very vocal anti-vac. I talked with friends and family and took my daughter for her jabs. I told the nurse my concerns and she talked about the risks and how they are uncommon and that you can live with an autistic child but not a child that dies from a preventable disease but the choice was mine. I decided to go ahead but asked her to give my daughter a full health check first. In the end, Aria wasn’t vaccinated as they discovered very mild jaundice and she was sent to hospital for tests. It turned out to be nothing and so she had her jabs at 4 months old – except Rotor Virus (not sure of spelling). They can’t have that one after a certain age as it causes their tummy to collapse. I think that is quite scary. I’ve got friends who have had their babies vaccinated when they have mild colds and I think its terrible. It might not be the real disease but they need their immunity to be working fully. Knowing what I’ve learnt I wouldn’t get her done if she isn’t 100%. I don’t judge anyone that chooses not to do it as I don’t think we have all the facts about the side effects yet, but I am also friends with a mum who knows a child that wasn’t vaccinated and died of a preventable disease (I think it was meningitis). Making the decision caused me a lot of stress but it is done now.

    1. Alison thank you for your comment. I totally agree that it is a hard choice to make. We love our children more than anything in the world and we want only the best for them. For me the most scary thing is that even doctors don’t really know how everything works. So I have decided that I will rather do my best to keep her immune system strong naturally with healthy food and lifestyle. Thank you so much for sharing your experience and opinion. Wish all the best to you and your daughter 🙏🏻☺️
