Should doctors be allowing unvaccinated children to take all of their required shots?

Playground and

civic settings are settings in which vaccines can fail to help reduce the risk of illness and disease.

There are so many reasons that children have autism and many causes for what they perceive as an absence of any closeness with other kids or families that we are trying to identify their unique set of symptoms. This is particularly challenging with young children, and further complicates our efforts when considering a new vaccine and the potential risk to a young child’s potential vaccines. So far, while research is still limited, these issues have been identified as a strong risk factor to children not following all vaccination schedules.

What if, though, I had evidence that practices where little to no vaccines are administered to children were just as (or more) harmful to their brains and bodies than not all vaccines? We at MD Anderson Children’s Hospital have done this research – and we are speaking out about it!

Could this be?

A Texas-based pediatrician at MD Anderson Medical Center recently talked to an audience about an issue called what he called “Over Vaccination Syndrome” (OMS). This refers to the increasing number of children being diagnosed with symptoms such as persistent pain, vomiting and urination, frequent infections, persistent fever and pain at the start of the fever, as well as behavior or motor changes associated with irritability and difficulty settling down in school, playground and at home.

Some of these symptoms go back as far as birth, but more are being attributed to younger children. It is also being determined that their symptoms are coming from a profound common problem.

As of 2018, more than 350 school-age children in Texas had been diagnosed with OMS. Although these children only made up 2.7 percent of all children diagnosed with OMS, it is hard to tell just how many other children or parents have similar symptoms. The number of those with symptoms is easily in the thousands. Parents are often unaware of their child’s underlying health problem (or the unique needs of the child), or more likely are concerned about the cost and length of the vaccine and vaccine itself.

Medicine

In other words, the reason children are being diagnosed with OMS is due to unvaccinated children being given their required shots of some vaccines. As physicians, we see the damage and the devastating toll that untreated health problems have on a child. Because the seriousness of the problem, plus the fact that our Medicaid program is paying to care for these children, we as physicians are concerned about the impact of not treating these children’s underlying conditions and plan to engage further with the children’s families.

According to pediatrician, Dr. Carl Pearlman, MD, director of Paediatrics at MD Anderson and a contributing author of the paper, it is possible that the OMS may be an unexpected byproduct of the many rules and regulations put in place by various state agencies that limit the number of vaccines that children can receive and the timing and length of exposure to other vaccines.

“Some vaccines tend to have more adverse reactions,” Dr. Pearlman told the audience at the Day Ovation podcast. “And if you look at the number of vaccine reactions that are reported, the majority of them are low-grade and transient, with only a fraction of them requiring hospitalization.”

Dr. Pearlman told the audience that OMS “could be a contributing factor” to the number of low-grade side effects that are often reported with vaccines.

“Or it could be coming from actually more common underlying diseases and medical conditions where we are inadequately treating that, and then the medication for that medical condition or disease is associated with a lot of serious side effects. And at some point, it’s going to catch up to the vaccination.”

So does this mean that if a child is indeed over vaccinated that the issue is “cured”? Not at all. Rather, it means that it is an issue worth considering:

The reason children are being diagnosed with OMS is due to unvaccinated children being given their required shots of some vaccines.
