Vaccination is a complex and very controversial issue. It is strongly advocated and supported by most government health authorities world wide and pro-vaccination advice is offered to parents by the vast majority of GPs. But while there is no doubt that vaccination can have massive, population wide benefits, it can also have serious side effects and lead to a number of 'unintended consequences', especially if the child comes from an atopic background or its health is in other ways compromised.

Because the vast majority of our site visitors will already have been presented with conventional, pro-vaccination information we focus here on those 'unintended consequences' which are the concern of the parents of allergic children. However, for a balanced view we suggest that you start by reading the presentation by Dr Richard Halverson here.


ASIA’, adjuvants and the ongoing vaccine debate.

Research Reports

Temporal Association of Certain Neuropsychiatric Disorders Following Vaccination of Children and Adolescents: A Pilot Case–Control Study. January 2017
This study used an interesting approach: it identified newly diagnosed cases of neuropsychiatric disorders from private medical insurance claims data in the US. It then looked to see whether the individuals concerned had received a vaccination in the preceding months. Individuals diagnosed with Anorexia Nervosa and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (in particular) were more likely to have received a vaccination in the 3-12months leading up to the diagnosis, than control participants. This does not imply a causal relationship between vaccinations and these neuropsychiatric disorders but does suggest that further investigation of this could be important to understanding whether vaccinations might play a causal role for a particular sub-group of individuals.
