CDC Says ‘Seizures Can Occur After Vaccination’

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.”

    I have twin sons who are now 13 years old. They developed autism and epilepsy,at a very young age.I am a single mom who has spent hours in emergency rooms and nights in hospitals due to my sons having seizures it is scarey to see them go through this and remain strong for them,help them as much as I can.The doctors told me I would not have to worry about my children getting either of these things they were so wrong.Docotrs or the so called experts should tell parents everything about all these needles for kids. Before the needles my kids development was goin as it should then bang one day out of the blue our world changed never to be the same. So please everyone know the risks of these needles ect.Even though my children have autism and epilepsy I love them with all my heart as I do all my children.

    CDC states:
    “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”.

    The word “small” should be deleted from the statement. It originates from manipulated statistics. Quote from Robert Catalano in his book “The Great White Hoax”:
    “If medical statistics were compiled by statisticians who had no interest in the outcome, the drug industry would topple into the dust”.

  6. Rev. Renee T. says:

    febrile seizures are NOT TO BE MISTAKEN FOR A SEIZURE DISORDER or a diagnoses of epilepsy. FEBRILE seizures are simply ONE-TIME seizures caused by a fever that happened to be induced by something, in the case of the CDC admission-certain vaccines can cause those ONE TIME FEBRILE seizures. But they are NOT linked definitively to seizure disorder diagnoses.

      Look at CDC reaction to vaccination. Can cause long term seizure, brain damage (in rare cases) which unfortunately I am one of.
