Adverse reactions prompt flu vaccination suspension

Following suspected adverse reactions in recently vaccinated young children – fevers leading in some case to convulsions – the flu vaccine will no longer be administered to Australian youngsters under five. This will no doubt add to general suspicions that vaccines can be harmful, this fear largely resulting from bogus claims linking the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine to autism. It has not yet been established that the flu vaccine caused any serious adverse reactions but parents of recently vaccinated children are warned to remain vigilant.
