Vaccination Hell

Ok, so I said I’d write a post about the vaccines I’m getting for my trip so here is my first attempt.  Almost a week later and I’m still not a 100% from my 4 vaccines in 1 go.  On top of that, I started an oral typhoid vaccine on Friday.  You have to take one pill every other day for a week (4 pills).  So far my side effects with that vaccine have been headache, nausea, and light-headedness. It cost $67 USD.  The 4 I got last Monday were Hepatitis B (the first in a series of 3) for $85 USD, MMR Booster for $98 USD, Pneumococcal for $90 USD, and Yellow Fever for $135 USD.  I also got a TB test for $40 USD and the office visit cost $58 USD.  The side effects I experienced with these vaccines were, to put it bluntly, severe.  Within an hour, I had started shaking uncontrollably. I had a high fever and intense body chills that felt like my body was being scraped by brillo pads.  I was slightly delirious, had no appetite and was thirsty all the time.  It was horrible. 

I was supposed to get another 2 vaccines on Wednesday, but I was still feeling like shit and when I came in to get my TB test read, the nurse took one look at me and said “You aren’t getting any vaccines today”.   

I have another 3 vaccines to get before I leave. One of them is the 2nd Hep B shot.  I can’t remember what the other 2 are, probably because I became violently ill after the appointment.  

As I said, still not fully recovered, so I think I’ll end it there.  Bleehhhhhh.

    katafrass you really need to understand how dangerous and full of toxic poisons vaccines are and secondly they don’t work in the way they are promoted. You are a victim of the vaccine industry, sadly like so many others. Infectious disease can only take hold if your body is run down and receptive to it. Malnourished, lack of sleep, poor hygiene, cold etc. Never again think vaccines are necessary and don’t travel to countries where they are mandated.

    • I appreciate your opinion Jim, but I can’t say I agree. I would rather get a vaccine than give up the chance to experience a different country, culture, or way of life. Vaccines can have some nasty side effects, but they can also have some wonderful results, such as allowing us to virtually eradicate polio and other life threatening diseases.

        Katafrass you are being hoodwinked by their propaganda, no disease has ever been eradicated by vaccines, despite what agencies like the WHO say – smallpox, polio as examples. You might like to research this in more depth, try visiting think and read about the individual vaccines you were given. Sadly the vested interests want you to believe they have your best interests at heart. They are only concerned about money and power and in order to achieve that they use mainstream media to distort our thinking. Once you understand how your immune system works you will realise that violating your bloodstream by directly injecting yourself with toxic antigens is a recipe for disaster. Think about the families who have lost members to vaccine death – it happens all too regularly sadly.

        All the best


      • Jim, I am not being “hoodwinked”, I am being realistic. Having been diagnosed with an autoimmune deficiency at a very young age, I am acutely aware of how the immune system works, or in my case, doesn’t. I am sad that you seem so disillusioned by and cynical of the world, but I just do not agree with your view. You are welcome to check out my blog, but as this is a blog about environmentally friendly travel and not medical issues, I urge you to keep your comments on topic. Thanks

    Enjoy your life and travels but never forget to beware of the motives of others. My only motive in replying to your blog post about vaccine reactions is to hopefully make people in general and yourself in particular aware of the dangers of vaccines and the lies told about them.

    Good bye and good luck
