Elderly & Vaccines
- Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis following influenza vaccination. Approximately 5% of cases of acute disseminated encephalomyelitis are preceded by vaccination within 1 month prior to symptom onset. This occurs rarely following influenza immunization.
- Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis following Seasonal Influenza Vaccination in an Elderly Patient Although such occurrences are rare, it should be recognized that certain vaccines might trigger serious neurological immune phenomena such as Guillain-Barre syndrome, seizures, cranial neuropathy, and acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM)
- Elderly Subjects Have a Delayed Antibody Response and Prolonged Viraemia following Yellow Fever Vaccination: A Prospective Controlled Cohort Study Yellow fever vaccination (YF-17D) can cause serious adverse events (SAEs). The mechanism of these SAEs is poorly understood. Older age has been identified as a risk factor.
- Fever and multisystem organ failure associated with 17D-204 yellow fever vaccination: a report of four cases In 1998, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was notified of three patients who developed severe illnesses days after yellow fever vaccination. A similar case occurred in 1996. All four patients were more than 63 years old.
- Flu Shots For The Elderly Are Ineffective Have the elderly people in your family missed their flu shot? If so, they may have made the right decision.
- Flu Shots May Not Protect the Elderly or the Very Young The goal is to curb the spread of infection and minimize the risk for potentially dangerous complications such as pneumonia, particularly among the elderly and the very young. Science on the vaccine’s efficacy is scant among those two vulnerable groups.
- Impact of Vaccines: Aluminum, Autoimmunity, Autism & Alzheimer’s There are a number of whistle-blower experts (see below) who are trying to alert doctors, journalists and law-makers to the dangers of Big Pharma’s highly profitable over-vaccination business plan.
- Neurologic complications associated with influenza vaccination: two adult cases Although the efficacy and cost benefit of influenza vaccination have been widely accepted, such neurologic complications might occur in the elderly or even in adults.
- Travel Vaccines and Elderly Persons: Review of Vaccines Available in the United States This review summarizes published data regarding the effects of age on responses after immunization with vaccines generally administered before travel.
