Reply To: Hospital Pharmacy — GBS and Vaccination: Usually Unrelated

GH – I’m just wondering if you realize how upsetting it is to people, who believe they got GBS from a vaccine, when you tell them they are wrong?

No one can tell me that my 4 year old little girl would have gotten CIDP. 4 year olds aren’t supposed to get CIDP! I know my daughter’s health history & I can assure you, the vaccines played a roll in her disease. I’m sure other people feel the same way about their own illnesses. I’m not saying the vaccines were the only cause but I know they played a major role.

I’m just saying this so maybe you can figure out a way to post your beliefs about vaccines but be aware of people’s feelings.

There is info out there coming from both sides of the issue. It’s just the way you search for it & what you choose to read & take away from it.

The American Medical Association believes there is a link between vaccines & GBS:
