Release of New Single-Dose Mumps Vaccine


Though I am not pro-vaccination, to say I am anti-vaccination would be a stretch. I believe it is a very personal decision that only a parent should be able to make for their child.

The facts are that vaccinations can cause harm to your child, and like anything that may cause harm, only a parent should be given the responsibility of weighing up the pros and cons and making the decision that is best for their family.

After all, if something should go wrong (as it did with my child) it is you the parent who will be dealing with the aftermath - financially, physically and emotionally.

That said, I have seen a recent announcement of a new vaccination that is a single dose mumps vaccination available in the UK from June 2012, and wanted to write some detail on it here.  

There are many reasons a single-dose mumps might be considered a good idea at first appearance. 

 * MMR (Measles, Mumps & Rubella) vaccination has had many reports of serious adverse affects
 * MMR is 'cultured' in a chick embryo and thus is unable to be utilized by those children allergic to eggs 
 * 1 vaccination as opposed to 3-in-1 is less likely to cause adverse reactions

Please be aware if you are evaluating your stance on this new drug, that newer does not automatically mean better. In addition, something that needs to be taken into account is the method of producing any drug (or cosmetic, household product etc).

In this case this vaccination that you will be allowing to be injected into your child is cultured from canine kidney cells rather than chick embryos and is thought to be manufactured in the Czech Republic (a country with vastly different laws and safety legislation on pharmaceutical manufacture).  
Top reasons to be concerned and look further into this vaccination before making a decision: 

 * Manufacturing company is based in Czech Republic - a country with vastly different laws and safety regulations
 * Company has had other products banned previously due to concerns about their safety 
 * This may actually be a vaccine that was approved previously and then rejected. If this is the case it would have only be renamed and repackaged. (See this page for more detail on this statement.) 
* Innocent, sweet living dogs are bred specifically (typically in horrid conditions and with no love, affection or attention. They suffer and die at the hands of big business and you may not want to contribute to their suffering. 
* Manufacturer has stated that children allergic to the proteins in dog hair may also have an allergic reaction to this vaccine. 

All in all, as with any vaccine product the best advise I can offer is to do your homework. Know when you are making a decision it is an informed decision, and not one made by a puppet who does whatever the man in the white coat tells you to do.

  1. I rarely leave comments, but after looking at through a great deal of responses on this page "Release of New Single-Dose Mumps Vaccine".

    I do have 2 questions for you if you tend not to mind.
    Is it simply me or do some of these remarks come across like they
    are written by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are writing at additional online
    social sites, I'd like to follow you. Would you post a list of the complete urls of all your social pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

  9. Did not thought about this until now :)Garcinia Cambogia Extract suppresses the pancreas from breaking down starch into maltose and
    dextrin. It also stops the production of alpha-amylase mineral
    deposits in the body system. Medical practitioners occasionally
    endorse this to their customers who are diabetes sufferers
    because the Garcinia Cambogia stops the manufacturing
    of alpha-glucosidase established in the colon from renovating disaccharides and starches into sugar.

    Garcinia Cambogia benefits also inhibits sugars and carbohydrates from converting into harmful excess
    fat by stopping the creation of citrate lyase.
    Some medical professionals use Garcinia as
    a laxative to help with obstipation or other well-being reasons such as
    weight-loss, stress relief, major depression, changes in mood and as
    a help to having a beneficial night nap.

  15. Whatever the reason, pets should be looked after well just
    like human beings. They go to the toilet frequently, and tend to 'squirt' their liquidy droppings rather than simply 'squat'.
    Be aware, however, that due to the foreclosure crisis,
    many pet shelters are overwhelmed, and the chances that your pet(s) will have
    to be euthanized are significant.

  22. Note that in Mists of Pandaria there is no longer a head enchant, and the shoulder enchants are now

    If honu are swimming near where you are, do not approach or chase them; always swim to the side of
    them, never above (as a predatory shark would) nor
    below them (so they won't feel that their soft
    belly is at risk). But, I can't deny how extraordinary Brando's performance is as the
    head of the Corleone crime family, Vito Corleone in The Godfather.
