Partial Immunization was not Enough, Kid was sent home from school to the Consternation of Mom


A sixth grader was sent home from school for being partially immunized against chicken pox causing his mom to be angry.

Michael, 11, said “I wasn’t vaccinated, and I don’t think it’s fair that I can’t go to school,” after his mom, Sarah, was asked to fetch him.

Sarah stated she was “beyond not happy” commenting to a spokesperson’s statement that some parents were disappointed with the conclusion to prohibit unimmunized kids from schools with chicken pox incidents.

Globally, chicken pox incidents have decreased in recent years, due to vaccinations that become compulsory for school, officials stated.

Michigan students must have two shots of the vaccine before school, unless their parents sign a waiver.

Oakland County health officers and Birmingham Public Schools warned parents about three established incidents in three schools on Wednesday.

Health officers became more alarmed understanding that some unimmunized kids had “significant” exposure to some of the infected on Thursday.

The school announced that unimmunized kids were not to report until April 14.

Donovan said her kids were incompletely immunized, but was worried when Michael’s sister, Jane, started showing symptoms of autism.

Although health experts and investigators have said relations involving autism and vaccines have been frequently questioned, some parents consider the negative side effects of vaccines are unidentified and frequently neglected.

When school officers called, she told them she would drive Michael to school regardless of their instructions.

“I told him that he might be called down to the office because of this. We explained to him that Mom and Dad love him very much and this is our choice because we feel this is protecting him by not being vaccinated.”

She’s worried that officers are exaggerating, making Michael’s health details open and a center of teasing.

“I don’t like this bullying. I’m going to push back somewhat. I’m not a media person — I’m not. I like privacy. But I think it’s important for people to know the other side. It’s not right. It’s truly bullying. My son is being singled out and we’re made to feel like were bad parents because we’ve decided not to vaccinate anymore.”

“They’re saying it’s some deadly disease but, hello, we all had it.”

Only in infrequent chicken pox incidents does it have fatal problems, she noted.

Administrator of public health nursing services, Shane Bies, said, officers command unimmunized kids not to attend class every other year. They knew that the district has an increased waiver rate.

When kids enter kindergarten, 93 percent of kids have received two doses of the varicella vaccine, says Jennifer Smith, public health spokesperson.

In Birmingham, concerning 87.3% of kindergartens have had equal shots, says Bies.

    A new systematic review published in PLoS titled, “Herpes Zoster Risk Reduction through Exposure to Chickenpox Patients: A Systematic Multidiscplinary Review,” confirms that the widespread adoption of chickenpox vaccine over the past 30 years, which has resulted in a decline in chickenpox cases associated with infection from the wild-circulating virus, has lead to a concerning increase in the incidents of herpes zoster (shingles), a far more serious expression of chickenpox virus (varicella zoster) infection.

    This new review brings to the forefront a few critically important questions: are natural infectious challenges essential for establishing a healthy immune system, and is the chicken pox vaccine doing more harm than good?

    “Prior to the universal varicella vaccination program, 95% of adults experienced natural chickenpox (usually as school aged children)—these cases were usually benign and resulted in long term immunity. This high percentage of individuals having long term immunity has been compromised by mass vaccination of children which provides at best 70 to 90% immunity that is temporary and of unknown duration—shifting chickenpox to a more vulnerable adult population where chickenpox carries 20 times more risk of death and 15 times more risk of hospitalization compared to children. Add to this the adverse effects of both the chickenpox and shingles vaccines as well as the potential for increased risk of shingles for an estimated 30 to 50 years among adults.”[
