My daughter is three years old and I had all her vaccines. But I regret having it done. I now would like to know what is in the substances she was injected with. Can I simply ask the doctors that did the vaccines to give me this information? And is there any way to "get rid" of the substances she was injected with?
Have a long talk with her pediatrician, so you can understand vaccines. I was cautious about my son's vaccinations (did them one at a time with two weeks or more in between each, so if he had a bad reaction I would know which one did it), but the pediatrician pointed out to me that we as children got ten times the dose that kids get today and even if I had done all of my son's vaccines on the same day he would still be getting less than I did in just one shot when I was little. The point of vaccination is to save lives. You may have done so for your daughter.
The substance in a vaccine is long gone, what she is left with is antibodies that protect her from a disease. The best example is the first, the cowpox / smallpox realization of Dr. Edward Jenner. He noticed that milkmaids didn't get smallpox, the killer scourge of his day, and figured out that they had all had a much less serious disease earlier in their lives that was called cowpox. Reasoning that something about having had cowpox made a person later immune to smallpox, he did his best science (given that this was in the 1700s it was pretty remarkable that he could do much) and experimented by injecting a young man he knew with cowpox from a pustule on someone who was sick with it. The young man (I think he was about 12) got sick with cowpox, and got well, and then didn't get smallpox. The body creates antibodies that confer immunity to a disease as it heals from it (which is why once you get mumps or rubella you can't get it again), and Jenner had figured out that the body's immunity to cowpox also extended to (protected it) from smallpox.
Going to your comment about trying to remove the substance the person was injected with -- the injected substance goes away almost immediately. Your child has no foreign material in her body. What she has is the antibodies her own body produced in reaction to it. Those antibodies that she made herself will protect her from the diseases in the future. A good example is the flu shot. It's a "killed" vaccine, meaning it can't give you the flu, but your body reacts to it as though it's protecting you from the flu, and develops the appropriate antibodies. Then later in the season, here comes the flu but you don't get it because you're protected by those antibodies.
Anyway, read up and get well educated. Try not to fall for people like that scientist who finally admitted he had made up all of that stuff he published supposedly linking vaccines with autism. (And he's the one that everyone was quoting over and over and over, and it was all fake.) Try hard to read unbiased material discussing the pros and cons. In the meantime, don't worry that your child is somehow carrying around foreign material in her body. She is not. Again, talk to her doctor, it will probably help a lot whatever you decide to do about shots for her in the future.
You can do some research as online they will tell you what she has had .The multiples are a concern now , its always best to have them done singly even if you have to demand it,everyone has varying opinions and you need to look for your self and not rely on others to tell you what they believe.There is much online ..I am sure your Dd will be okay ..good luck
