Because NIH Scientists Consider Babies to be No Different than “Small Adults” NIH-Supported Scientists Examine Adjusting Flu Shot for Tots : Saint Louis University : SLU
NIH-Supported Scientists Examine Adjusting Flu Shot for Tots : Saint Louis University : SLU. This alarming announcement about doubling the dose of flu vaccine given to babies demonstrates a callous disregard for the health of children between 6 months and 35 months who will be affected if flu vaccine policy is changed. A sample size of 270 children is much too small to be able to determine whether or not this vaccine will affect children at the individual and population level.
Brain development is occurring at a rapid pace and the vast majority of flu vaccines contain 25 micrograms of thimerosal. Will the safety of this vaccine be studied against an inert placebo? Will thimerosal be added to the placebo as is done in so many other vaccine safety studies? We at the VaccineXchange want to inform the public of these deceptive research practices and the danger of treating babies as if they are “small adults” – ignoring the unique developmental stages of the immune and central nervous systems, and the danger of exposure to excessive challenges with toxins and immune stimulating agents.
