A new immunization requirement will be in effect this fall to help fight the spread of whooping cough in Oklahoma schools and communities.

All students entering seventh grade will be required to have one dose of Tdap — tetanus, diphtheria and acelluar pertussis vaccine — before the start of the 2011-2012 school year.

According to the Oklahoma State Department of Health, the new requirement will help Oklahoma avoid outbreaks of the disease that other parts of the country are experiencing. Thousands of cases of whooping cough have been noted in California and Texas.

“While Oklahoma has been fortunate thus far in avoiding an outbreak of whooping cough, we did see an increase in the number of cases reported in the state last year,” said State Health Commissioner Dr. Terry Cline. “One hundred seventy cases were reported in Read more…

Do You Know What You’re Injecting into Your Child?

Takeaways

  • Not all vaccines are thimerosal-free.
  • The ingredients may concern pro-lifers, vegetarians, and vegans.
  • Vaccines contain chemicals recognized as hazardous and poisonous.
Are you thinking about vaccination? The debate over childhood vaccinations rages on parenting forums everywhere. Should you vax, or shouldn’t you? We all have our own opinions on whether to inoculate babies and children. When making the decision, it is important that you educate yourself rather than relying on the doctors and nurses to take the time to do it. There is so much to consider when choosing whether to vaccinate your child or not. It is surprising how little those who are for inoculations know about their ingredients. When I did my research on the ingredients of vaccines, what I found was shocking!
Many vaccines do contain live viruses. This includes the MMR and all shots for Measles, Mumps, and Rubella. The rotavirus vaccine, RotaTeq, also contains several live rotavirus strains form both humans and monkeys. Polio vaccines contain several types of inactivated polio virus. The Hepatitis A vaccine contains that strain of the hepatitis virus. Other vaccines contain fragments of viruses, such as polysaccharides or toxoids, or weakened viruses. Flu shots contain influenza virus. The HiB has haemophilus influenza bacteria in it. Viruses are often ‘weakened’ or ‘inactivated’ with formaldehyde, but as its effect is temporary, these viruses can revert back to full strength.
Trace amounts of the mediums in which vaccines are cultured can be found in them as well. For example, flu shots and mumps vaxes are made in chicken eggs, hence the reason those with egg sensitivity may be allergic to them. Some are made with genetically altered yeast. Polio inoculations are created in monkey kidney cells. Hepatitis A, RotaTeq, Varicella (chickenpox), Rubella, and Mumps vaccines are cultured in human diploid cells that come from aborted human fetal tissue, as in a dead baby–the lungs to be exact. That’s the freaky truth.
Ammonium sulfate can be found in the DTaP, DPT, HiB vaccines, all of which are routinely given to babies. Ammonium is basically positively charged ammonia. Ammonia is found in urine and used in household cleaning products, the source of that strong odor. It is toxic when inhaled. Sulfate is a salt of sulfuric acid. Sulfuric acid is used in ore processing, fertilizer manufacturing, oil refining, and wastewater processing. It comes from sulfur, obviously, which is used in gunpowder and insecticides. Sulfur also has a very distinct, disgusting smell. Ammonium sulfate may be a gastrointestinal, liver, respiratory, and neurological toxicant. Read more…
