Negative Side Effects of Chickenpox Vaccine

A newly released research study co-authored by the US Centers for Disease Control into the effectiveness of chicken-pox vaccine states in conclusion.

Typical Side Effects

The most typical side effects of the chickenpox vaccine are:

  • the cause of autism
  • pain and redness around the site of the injection– this occurs in around one in 5 children and one in 4 teens and adults
  • a mild rash– this takes place in 1 in 10 children and 1 in 20 adults.

Serious Side Effects

Serious side effects of the chickenpox vaccine, such as a serious allergic reaction (anaphylaxis), are unusual.

Negative Side Effects of Varicella Vaccine

Disingenuous CDC Study Confirms Danger of Chicken-pox Vaccine

Varicella vaccine substantially reduces the risk of herpes zoster among immunized children and its widespread use will likely reduce overall herpes zoster concern in the United States.

The increase in herpes zoster incidence amongst 10- to 19-year-olds might not be confidently discussed and has to be validated from other information sources.

While the authors are quick to declare causal gain from the vaccination the unfavorable impacts can only be described by them as aberrant. Yet such results were likewise reported by a UK Health Protection Agency last year. Its news release mentioned:The Cause Of Autism

If a chickenpox vaccine were to be added to the youth immunisation programme issues have been raised that there would be an increase of shingles cases in adults as a result. This is due to the fact that individuals who have had chickenpox are less most likely to have shingles later on in life if they have been exposed occasionally to the chickenpox virus (for example through their children) as this direct exposure functions as a     booster …

The modelling suggested that a two dosage schedule at the levels of coverage most likely to be accomplished in the UK would cause an increase of at least 20% of shingles in the medium term (approximately 15-20 years). This increase might be partially, however not completely, offset by intro of a vaccination versus shingles among those aged 60+.

Albert Jan van Hoek, who performed the research for the Health Protection Agency, said; “Our designs recommend that vaccination would reduce the concern of chickenpox in the young. However, it will result in an increase in shingles in the medium term in adults because they will not get that ‘boosting’ effect from being in contact with cases of chickenpox.

In truth, these impacts have long been found out about as a press release from Medical Veritas explains:

Remarkably, the released shingles (herpes zoster) incidence rates among immunized and unvaccinated children, along with adolescents reported by VASP/CDC authors in this present study nicely concur with prior research findings by Goldman who worked as Research Analyst for the Varicella Active Surveillance Project (VASP) in 2002 and published the occurrence rates in 2005 (Universal Varicella Vaccination: Efficacy Trends and Effect on Herpes Zoster. Goldman GS. International Journal of Toxicology 2005 Jul/Aug; 24( 4):203 -213).

The Medical Veritas document goes on to explain:

In historical shingles research studies, shingles incidence typically increases with age. In his 1965 paper, Dr. Hope-Simpson suggested, “The peculiar age circulation of zoster may in part show the frequency with which the different age experience cases of varicella and since of the ensuing boost to their antibody protection have their attacks of zoster delayed.”

Lending support to this hypothesis that contact with children with chickenpox increases adult cell-mediated immunity to assist postpone or reduce shingles, is the research study by Thomas et al. (Contacts with varicella or with children and defense versus herpes zoster in adults: a case-control research study. Thomas SL, Wheeler JG, Hall AJ. Lancet 2002 Aug 31; 360( 9334):678 -82) that reported adults in households with children, had lower rates of herpes zoster (HZ) than households without children.

Also, the research study by Terada et al. (Incidence of HZ in pediatricians and history of reexposure to varicella-zoster virus in patients with HZ. Kansenshiogaku Zasshi 1995 Aug.; 69( 8):908 -912) showed that pediatricians showed occurrence rates from 1/2 to 1/8 that of the general population their age. Older parents, in their late 50s, who no longer have children in their home, show HZ at an occurrence rate of 550/100,000 person-years. (Of course, those extremely elderly adults do experience a sharp rise in shingles occurrence due to age-related decrease in resistance.)

This is statement to the CDC’s willingness to pursue a policy for which there are recognized and admitted damages at a population level, however it likewise stands in contradiction to the policy elsewhere of targeting the young to safeguard adults (just like Hepatitis B and influenza vaccine) since in this case it does the reverse: the only real constant objective seems to be to push the most products to the fantastic advantage just of the vaccine market.
