ABSTRACT
The article presents the second part of a previously published paper on infant and childhood vaccinations. It presents a discussion on childhood vaccination schedules, different kinds of bacterial and viral vaccines, and side effects of vaccination procedures. The major debilitating side effects observed for infant and childhood vaccinations include juvenile onset diabetes, autism, asthma, immune system dysfunction, seizures, encephalitis/encephalopathy, and death. As well, many less severe reactions such as developing the illness, which the vaccine is supposed to prevent, headache, inflammation, uncontrollable crying bouts, and fever are well known.

    Background. A phase 2 trial was conducted to assess in young infants the safety, tolerability, infectivity, and immunogenicity of multiple doses of an intranasal vaccine using bovine parainfluenza virus type 3 (bPIV3). Methods. One hundred ninety-two healthy 2-month-old infants were randomized...

    Immune stimulation appears to play a role in the pathogenesis of Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS). It is, therefore, biologically plausible that immunizations may be associated with subsequent GBS. In a recent review of the current body of evidence, associations between vaccines and GBS were...

    An infant is usually born with a deficient immune system, and the long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LC-PUFA) in breast milk plays an important role in the development and maturation of infant's immune system. This article reviews the role of LC-PUFA in breast milk in the development of...
