CJ asks…

“I was wondering if you had any information about Synagis. It seems to me that it is a vaccine (given once a month during cold/flu season) that supposedly helps prevent RSV. I believe RSV is just a scary way to describe a common cold. My daughter has a myriad of problems, including respiratory problems (she has a  racheostormy.)

She hasn’t had a single vaccine (I refused the Hep vaccine when she was born) but is going to be leaving the hospital soon (she has been in NICU for over 2 months since her birth.) and I’m afraid they are not only going to try to vaccinate her with the normal vaccines they push on parents but also try to get us to approve a synagis shot. I was reading some of the adverse reactions and they include severe allergic reactions,
and unresponsiveness.

This doesn’t sound ok to me. I’m of course concerned about her possibly getting something that could make her sick (she is prone to getting pneumonia..she’s already had it twice) but I am not willing to vaccinate her against something she might get anyway (they say babies can still get RSV even after being given Synagis.) I was just wondering if you have any real information about it. I am, of course, only coming up with the typical info about vaccines. I can’t find what the actual ingredients are either. I’m sure I will refuse the shot but I’d like to have some more information so I can tell the dr.s exactly why I am refusing this.”
