Vaccines and ME/CFS


Kerr et al provide evidence of other triggers of (ME)CFS which include Parvovirus; C. pneumoniae; C. burnetti; toxin exposure and vaccination including MMR, pneumovax, influenza, hepatitis B, tetanus, typhoid and poliovirus (LD Devanur,  JR Kerr. Journal of Clinical Virology 2006: 37(3):139-150).

Some individuals and subgroups develop adverse immune system reactions to vaccines. This is related to one's genes, and genetic structure including weaknesses and predispositions (for certain illnesses). Other factors include status and strength of one's immune system prior to vaccination, mercury in vaccines, adjuvants in vaccines and other types of vaccine contamination involving pathogens, toxins, and chemicals. Also the number of vaccines given at once and the age of the person is important. The immune system can be overwhelmed by multiple vaccinations in a short period of time. Additionally, the immune systems of children are not fully developed, and are thus vulnerable. These issues are often overlooked by medical doctors, yet they are a significant factor in immune system illnesses and degenerative illness. Several high profile court cases and compensation payments to patients show that this is a serious medical problem.
