“Myelin sheaths cover many nerve fibers in the central and peripheral nervous system; they accelerate axonal transmission of neural impulses. Disorders that affect myelin interrupt nerve transmission; symptoms may reflect deficits in any part of the nervous system.” – Read more about demyelination following vaccination in the Merck Manual.
Are vaccines perfectly safe? Explore the literature:
1. “Overall, 14.2% of all reports received in VAERS during 1991–2001 described serious adverse events (10) (Table 9). During 1991–2001, reports of deaths ranged from 1.4%–2.3%, and reports of life-threatening illness ranged from 1.4%–2.8% of all adverse event reports. During the previous 3 years when distribution of vaccines reached the highest level, the annual percentage of reports of death was stable, approximately 1.5% of all adverse event reports. The reports of life-threatening illness were also stable throughout the years except for a peak of 2.8% in 1999, which reflected RRV-TV and intussusception incident that occurred in that year.” – CDC MMWR: Surveillance for Safety After Immunization: Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) — United States, 1991–2001
2. “A total of 2090 reports (7% were serious; 55% listed Tdap alone) involving Tdap vaccines were submitted to VAERS May 2005-June 2007… Rarely reported AEs included myopericarditis, demyelinating diseases of the central nervous system, Guillain-Barré Syndrome, syncope, encephalopathy/encephalitis, seizure, Bell’s palsy, anaphylaxis, and thrombocytopenia.” – U.S. Postlicensure safety surveillance for adolescent and adult tetanus, diphtheria and acellular pertussis vaccines: 2005-2007.

- Did you know that the ACIP (Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices) recommends that you do NOT use interchangeable combination vaccines, that they should come from the same company because it may not be effective to use, for example “Infanrix” DTaP vaccine as the next shot in the series following “Daptacel” DTaP vaccine? Make sure to tell your doctor on the next visit if you partially vaccinate, to make sure the combination vaccine is from the SAME manufacturer. Reference- http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/
