RSV Vaccine Information

Speaking of vaccines.  Before you decide to receive the RSV vaccine for your children know that RSV (Respiratory syncytial virus) is a virus that infects the lungs and respiratory tract causing cold-like symptoms. It's so common that most children have been infected with it by the time they're 2 years old. The virus can also infect adults. Self-care measures are usually all that's needed to relieve discomfort. RSV generally causes only mild, cold-like symptoms in infants and young children, most of whom get the illness by age 2 and typically don’t require medical attention. Please be aware that the CDC is about to recommend this vaccine for pregnant women as they feel that the vaccine may pass down from the pregnant mother to the unborn baby. Unfortunately, Tracy Høeg, M.D., Ph.D., reported there was a 20% higher rate of preterm birth in the vaccinated group than in the unvaccinated group during the vaccine study trials.  In addition, the CDC is recommending this shot for newborns despite the fact that there were 12 infant deaths in the trial study.  The FDA approved the vaccine despite concerns raised by members of the FDA’s Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee (VRBPAC) about premature births identified during Pfizer’s clinical trials.
