Our Health and Vaccines (AVN 13/16)

Children’s Immunisation Schedules Australia

“Some may think the growth in the schedule is a good thing – today’s medical technology is giving us the best protection possible from infectious diseases.”

(Reprinted with permission from the Australian Vaccination-risks Network)

We see from the schedules on the back of the leaflet there has been a huge increase in both the number of diseases targeted by vaccines and of repeated doses given since today’s grandparents were young.

Most people who don’t have young children have no idea children are given so many doses. Even parents of young vaccinated children often don’t realise how many vaccines their children are getting because in many cases there are multiple vaccines in one shot. For example, at a doctor’s visit at 2 months of age, a baby will get 2 injections and an oral vaccine, and parents perhaps don’t realise that one of those shots contains 6 vaccines.

Some may think the growth in the schedule is a good thing – today’s medical technology is giving us the best protection possible from infectious diseases.

We would like to point out however that all vaccination carries inherent risks, and for many families the risk from a vaccine may be greater than from the disease.
