Help! College recommends whooping cough, meningitis shots
My 18-year old son has been accepted this fall into a public university. The college requires verification of measles (Rubeola) immunity for all students born after December 31, 1956. He's had his measles shots so he's OK there.

But then I found out via my doctor's office that whooping cough has been known to shut down another college's baseball team because of a whooping cough epidemic in 2008. The nurse said they could give the whooping cough vaccination in with a tetanus shot. But his tetanus shot is up-to-date (2006).

If that wasn't scary enough, the college also said that meningitis afflicts between 100 and 125 students on college campuses every year in the U.S. and 'immunity is particularly important for students who will be living in densely populated settings such as residence halls, fraternities, or sororities'.

I have to see the doctor anyway to sign off on the measles immunization (to prove my son had the shots). But what to do with the tetanus/whooping cough/meningitis vaccinations? I'm suppose to go to the clinic tomorrow (March 10th).

Help.

Never been called a genius before. Wow.

I'm wondering if people have experienced severe reactions to these shots.

Re: Help! College recommends whooping cough, meningitis shots
uh-with every other Pharmacutical company "accidently" contaminating their Vaccines with AIDS HN51, Mercury, etc etc-,
2 years ago- BAYER tried to sell AIDS tained vaccines here in the USA-the Bush FDA looked the other way-until attorneys found inter office executive memos telling of this;
When brought to light-the FDA allowed Bayer to shove it off on to Europe to sell!!
NO record of how many in the US died from it
They also had AIDS tainted Aspirin-off to Europe

we live in a world 'run' by animals

Re: Help! College recommends whooping cough, meningitis shots
whooping cough is more of a danger to infants
and toddlers ..in older ones its the 100 day hacking cough
which can mean being off work or out of classes during
the time its infectious. See if it needs updating.

Meningitis is easily spread and is a killer.
People can be fine one moment and dead
a few hours later... so
arrange for those immunisation doses.

Up to you but maybe also look at getting a typhoid shot
perhaps later in the year especially if the young
person wants to travel abroad but best to get that
done when they're living at home for a week or so as
its quite strong and most people react as in
almost pass out an hour or so later.

"recommends"

You don't have to if you don't want. Don't buy into fear tactics.

It's a multi-billion dollar business those vaccines are. I suppose you will be recommended to take the shots before you are allowed to enter the Burger King drive-thru in the future!

Re: Help! College recommends whooping cough, meningitis shots
Get a blood test for immunity to those things.
If they show up as immune, you show that and it's the same thing. No vaccination necessary.
That's what I did when I immigrated to the US.
They wanted me to have 8 vaccinations as I could not show medical records - they got lost.
I was insane with worry about having all those vaccinations.
I went to anti-vaccination leagues to see what they could do - they said, sorry, we can't help you.
So I figured it out myself.
Got the immigration doctor to have me tested for immunity against the things I had to be vaccinated for.
At first, he tried to dissuade me saying, "Oh, but it is expensive!" and I said "Yeah, but it's cheaper than the vaccinations, right?" and it was!
In the end, I came up as "consistent with immunity" on ALL counts, and I'm pretty sure I had not been vaccinated for all of them - but I did not have to be vaccinated. The only thing I HAD to have was a tetanus booster.
Phewsies all around and a big pat on the back for me.
I've told this story so many times, and no-one listens, no-one comments, but i hope it will be of some use to someone some day who really does care about succumbing to big pharma.

I wouldn't let anyone stick me with any vaccine of any sort.

Once Americans wake up and realize that vaccines were started by the Illuminati to ensure your immune system is weakened. Vaccines were never about prevention.

We have very evil people on this planet and everyone of us has been lied to.

If anyone uses "fear" tactics on you, don't buy into it. Especially vaccines.

Well, GOOD ON YOU!

Very interesting info, and you say it cost less to be tested for immunity than to be innoculated?

Excellent info!
