    Well yes, it is only a matter of time. After all the vax rate in Liverpool was 89% when they had that measles outbreak, ours is 90% and dropping.

    If they made the shots single, wouldn't that just give the antivaxxers fodder so to speak? It would make them think, they were right, that something is awry with vaccines. When there just isn't the evidence to back them up.

    It has been prove time and time again that there less adverse events with multi vaccines than with single vaccines. That is very telling to me.

    I also think a lot of people WOULD vax against Pertussis if it were available as a single fax, but we don't have that option. Whooping cough scares the **** out of most people, the vaccine has been around forever, I think people would be more open to that if it were available. It kind of p!sses me off that they are now doing the same with the MMR and Varicella. Its not right that people will not have the option of choosing anymore (especially when the chances of fevers etc are higher with the combined- and you- collective might not worry about fever, but I prefer to avoid it if possible- which it is).

    There was a comment on the Facebook page from someone who had their child get the vaccinations separately but it came at a cost. I think it was in the UK but may be available here too?

    ETA: I thought the Doco was great! I cried for poor little Osman.

    I enjoyed the doco. But yes I found the American family hard to watch mainly because my daughter has the same name and seeing it on a tomb stone really upset me. I am glad for my decision to vaccinate and felt for me a few things were clarified.

    I enjoyed it! I found it very informing, but It was very hard to watch, had to stop 1/2 way last night & i watched the rest this morning.

    I also found the American family who lost their daughter VERY hard to watch, only a month or so ago my son had meningococcal. We were so close to losing him & as she was telling her story it all hit a bit too close to home! And i am pro vax & my son is up to date with his vaccinations, so scary what can happen!

    It's a lot more than just those two.

    Rubella is still quite common, as is mumps. Pneumococcal and Meningococcal infections are still very common.

    Tetanus is a bacteria in the environment, and so can never be wiped out completely through vaccination, and risk is not very relevant to herd immunity levels.

    There is quite high potential to be exposed to Polio, as many people travel to and from countries where it's still endemic. And it lives in the environment.

    Hep B is a very common illness in the community.


    The above are just off the top of my head, but cover a sizeable chunk of the childhood vaccination schedule.

    Perhaps there is a slim change that Polio or Diphtheria won't be required within a decade or so, but I can't see many others going that way for a long time. And what's to be gained by removing a single vaccine from a hexavalent shot anyway?
