MB Comment: This should be required reading for every parent before every vaccination given to their children. The CDC says ‘seizures can occur after vaccination,’ seizures after MMR ‘often result in a visit to an emergency room’ and implies that 10% of toddlers who get such seizures will develop epilepsy.
Parents aren’t knowingly signing up for childhood seizures, visits to emergency rooms and the tacitly admitted 10% risk of epilepsy (after having seizures) when they vaccinate their children.
In my experience, pediatricians NEVER warn parents about these risks. This issue is discussed in my chapter of the book ‘Vaccine Epidemic.’ Parents of kids who suffered these events tell how their children were left with epilepsy and permanent neurological damage.

Frequently Asked Questions about Febrile Seizures Following Childhood Vaccinations
“… Monitoring that’s been done for the 2010-11 flu season suggests that when flu vaccine and 13-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV 13) are given on the same day, there may be an association with febrile seizures in children aged 12 to 23 months …
What is a febrile seizure?
“Febrile” means “relating to a fever.” In some children, having a fever can bring on a seizure. During a febrile seizure, a child often has spasms or jerking movements—large or small—and may lose consciousness …
Is there an increased risk for febrile seizures after childhood vaccines?
Febrile seizures can occur when a child has a fever from any cause. They are most common after infections, including those that can be prevented by vaccination. But in rare instances, febrile seizures can occur after vaccination. Studies have shown that there is a small increased risk for febrile seizures during the first to second week after vaccination with measles, mumps, rubella (MMR) vaccine and the first dose of measles, mumps, rubella, and varicella (MMRV) vaccine …
Who is most at risk for febrile seizures?
Febrile seizures are not uncommon. About 2%-5% of young children will have at least one febrile seizure. Most febrile seizures occur in children between the ages of 6 months and 5 years. The peak age is 14–18 months, which overlaps with the ages when first doses of the MMRV, MMR, and varicella vaccines are recommended …
How serious is a febrile seizure?
Most children who have febrile seizures recover quickly and have no lasting effects. However, febrile seizures often result in a visit to an emergency room and can be very frightening for parents and caregivers. About 1 in 3 children who have one febrile seizure will have at least one more febrile seizure. Most children (greater than 90%) who have a seizure will not develop epilepsy.”
