Skin (hives, rashes, swelling) ”There was a big, hot, swollen lump at the site of the shot that stayed for weeks.”
High Pitched Screaming “It was a pain cry, a shrill scream and lasted for hours and nothing would help.”

Excessive Sleepiness “He passed out and we couldn’t wake him to feed or do anything for over 12 hours.”

Brain Inflammation “He just laid in his crib with his eyes wide open then would arch his back and scream and go unconscious. Now he has seizures.”

In the 1970’s, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) said children should get 23 doses of 7 vaccines by age 6. The first vaccinations were given at 2 months old.
Today, the CDC and AAP tell doctors to give children 48 doses of 14 vaccines by age 6. The first vaccination is given at 12 hours old in the newborn nursery. At age 2 months, a baby can receive 8 vaccines in a single day. At age 15 to 18 months, a child can receive as many as 12 vaccines in a single day.
