On March 11 2008, after reading a few articles (found below), and looking over our Twin boys (Andrew & Cameron) vaccine records - the timing of ALL these 40 Vaccines given to them by the time they reached 4 years old -
I am beating myself up for it.
Not only are these articles of importance, but I realize just how gullible I was to trust our pediatrician. I just went along with the flow, without questioning or causing waves. BUT also thinking I couldn't do anything about it or our twins would not be allowed to attend school.
After all, nothing went amiss when I went through all this with my daughter 20 years ago - But so MUCH has changed since then! Twenty years ago, my daughter received NINE (9) vaccines by the time she reached 5 years old.
After reading many things now (see below) I realize that I DID HAVE THE RIGHT to question my doctor on the number of shots given at one time to our twin boys. That I should have been informed by the pediatrician that WE DO HAVE THE RIGHT to choose to SPREAD OUT the vaccines and should NOT get chastised
for it! Like we were recently by a Dr for not giving the twins the Flu Vaccine! How could I have just blindly trusted the Pediatrician?! Why didn't the Pediatrician suggest other options?!
After the pediatrician observed our twins on Aug 13 2007, (shortly after they turned 4 years old)
her exact words to us about Cameron on this day were: " Cameron has characteristics of Autism... Oh! But not full blown Autism "
Then she rushes out to put some referrals together for us (which turned out to be useless!) .. while we sat alone in the office with the twins numb and confused -- having no idea what the heck Autism was.
The pediatrician then has the NURSE come back with referrals for Cameron to have: Occupational Therapy, Speech, and Physical therapies (of which many are barely covered or NOT covered at all under our insurance plan with Kaiser) She also highly recommended we get in touch with Early Intervention (EI) Then the nurse proceeds to administer our twins ALL EIGHT (8) VACCINES on this very same day of Cameron's diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder!
What a day August 13 2007 was. A DAY WE WILL NEVER FORGET FOR AS LONG AS WE LIVE!
This was also the same day that the twins appointment was 50 minutes LATE! I am NOT kidding!. And by the time we got all this news blurted to us, vaccines given to the twins, we were then rushed out the door as they were turning off the lights - it was that late in the day! Here is one example I would like to point out: The vaccines given to our twins on August 13 2007 COULD HAVE BEEN SPREAD OUT!
We realized this AFTER they were given all these shots on the very same day of Cameron's ASD diagnosis, that they could have spread them out and given the vaccines FROM AGES 4 YEARS TO 6 YEARS OLD. NOT ALL AT ONCE right after they turned 4 years old! (See Kaiser Recommended Vaccination Schedules & Cameron's Vaccine Record links below)
The twins do NOT have to go in for another vaccine until they are 11 years old now!
And they can shove it where the sun doesn't shine with their Mercury tainted FLU VACCINES, because we'll have nothing to do with it! Throw me in jail, but I am NOT holding my sons down to receive this shot! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
Note on Early Intervention: It took 2 months for Early Intervention approval.
The twins started attending on Oct 30 2007 and get ONLY 6 HOURS A WEEK.
As of March 11 2008 Cameron has had a total of only 48 hours in Early Intervention.
(This is partly due to no school days when teachers went on strike, school breaks, and due to being sick a few times)
Oh well, beggars can't be choosers right? *sigh*
Below are the articles that have triggered my anger in all this:

It all just sickens me!
Below are pages I scanned from the KAISER Medical Directory books we are provided each year - the VACCINE RECOMMENDATION
pages that our pediatrician faithfully followed without regard to discussing anything with us. ***Click to ENLARGE ALL images below***
From Kaiser Medical Directory - for year 2002-2003
(Twins born July 31 2003 - 4 weeks EARLY, 1 minute apart via C-section) Kaiser year 2004-2005
- ( Note how they announce the Flu Vaccine in this one at 6-23 months ) Kaiser year 2006-2007
The year Cameron was dx'd (NOW they've added a NEW vacccine: Rotovirus ) Kaiser year 2007-2008
(redesigned - making it look like less vaccines, but it's more) Here is a scanned page of Cameron's Vaccine Records to date
- with my notes below it (Note: Andrew's Vaccine records are identical to Cameron's)
My son Cameron is now diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. He was NOT born with this. He gradually regressed into this condition. Around 34 months old, odd behavior started to occur and became more and more frequent.
I can not PROVE that the huge amount of vaccines he received in the short amount of time caused this. (but it sure as heck makes you wonder!). At least I can tell others out there to know that the vaccines given to your children CAN BE SPREAD OUT. No matter what they say, or in our case what they DON'T say. Another thing has occurred to us: Our twin boys were born 4 WEEKS EARLY, via C-section on July 31 2003.
In the beginning of the first 12 months of their lives while making several visits to the doctor, the pediatrician kept saying that certain things might come a bit slower for them (breast feeding, sitting, crawling, walking etc) because they were born premature.
Well if that is all true, then why did she give ALL THOSE SHOTS (7 VACCINES) to the twins on 09/25/2003?!!
Firstly, they were not even 2 months old yet, and secondly, if their "development" could be behind due to being born 4 WEEKS EARLY, then why did she allow those vaccines at that time to begin with?!
It's a good thing that when Andrew developed Pyloric Stenosis (August 31 2003) at 4 weeks old -- they were not vaccinated with anything YET at that time.
It just all boggles my mind! How the pediatrician claimed that because they were born 4 weeks early, that they were actually a month behind but then turns around and proceeds to do all those shots on THEIR vaccine schedule! Does this make any sense?!
(yes, again I am kicking myself) UPDATE!
Another strange thing I found out (and ALL too late) is that I was told by their pediatrician that if the twins get fussy, a fever etc. (which Cameron always did after many vaccines) to give them Tylenol which has Acetaminophen
: Acetaminophen (paracetamol) use, measles-mumps-rubella vaccination, and autistic disorder: the results of a parent survey.Schultz ST, Klonoff-Cohen HS, Wingard DL, Akshoomoff NA, Macera CA, Ji M.
University of California San Diego, USA.
The present study was performed to determine whether acetaminophen (paracetamol) use after the measles-mumps-rubella vaccination could be associated with autistic disorder. This case-control study used the results of an online parental survey conducted from 16 July 2005 to 30 January 2006, consisting of 83 children with autistic disorder and 80 control children. Acetaminophen use after measles-mumps-rubella vaccination was significantly associated with autistic disorder when considering children 5 years of age or less (OR 6.11, 95% CI 1.42-26.3), after limiting cases to children with regression in development (OR 3.97, 95% CI 1.11-14.3), and when considering only children who had post-vaccination sequelae (OR 8.23, 95% CI 1.56-43.3), adjusting for age, gender, mother's ethnicity, and the presence of illness concurrent with measles-mumps-rubella vaccination. Ibuprofen use after measles-mumps-rubella vaccination was not associated with autistic disorder. This preliminary study found that acetaminophen use after measles-mumps-rubella vaccination was associated with autistic disorder. PMID: 18445737 [PubMed - indexed for MEDLINE]
And to top that off Acetaminophen DEPLETES the much needed Glutathione
On Jan 15 2008, the Pediatrician referred Cameron for Development Assessment Clinic at Kaiser (DAC) They called us and the appointment for Cameron is set for April 3 2008! Unbelievable! Either they don't give a flying crap, OR they are really that booked up (hmmmm I wonder why?!) Update
to this long awaited useless appointment: It was only a 50 minute visit with ONE Dr. that interviewed Cameron in a room more suited for a business meeting (four white wall with one having a white board, a computer, large wooden oval table and cushy office chairs) than for accessing a child with Autism! The small amount of parts of toys that did not even belong together she had in a small box would have hardly amused a 4 month old let alone a 4 year old! All we got out of that single appointment was a recommendation to put Cameron on Drugs! See NO DRUGS FOR CAMERON here
Right now, I just hope to get Cameron to stop "TOE WALKING". I want to avoid the possible surgeries and castings that can result from toe walking. I've tried everything! Not to judge or anything, but I DON'T want my son to end up like John Travolta's son...
Take a look at this picture of his 15 year old son (Seems he's in denial about his son's condition due to his religion I guess) see it HERE
Any way this is my rant (as well as to scold myself)... and if you know anyone with a NEWBORN you might suggest that they HAVE THOSE VACCINES SPREAD OUT to be on the safe side! 'Tis far better SAFE than to be sorry later!
Currently the NATIONAL average for the USA is now at 1 in 150 with Autism
In Oregon it is 1 in 88!
See AUTISM STATE RANKINGS GRAPH
In the UK it is 1 in 100!
Something else to think about:
Measles: approx 1 in 2,720,000
Mumps: approx 1 in 702,842
Rubella: approx 1 in 747,252
Polio: approx 1 in 0 or 0.00% or 0 people in USA. (4 cases a year vaccine induced)

Tetanus: approx 1 in 6,800,000
Whooping cough: approx 1 in 36,731
Meningitis: approx 1 in 10,879
Tuberculosis: approx 1 in 14,814 Autism: approx 1 in 150 FYI :
