HEPATITIS A

Hepatitis A is inflammation of the liver caused by the hepatitis A virus (HAV).

It does not lead to chronic disease and according to the CDC’s website, “most children less than 6 years of age do not have symptoms or have an unrecognized infection. Antibodies produced in response to hepatitis A infection last for life and protect against reinfection.” (1)

Fever, stomach pain, lack of appetite, fatigue, nausea, diarrhea, and in rare cases jaundice can occur in the 30% of children who do exhibit symptoms.

There is no treatment for hepatitis A because your body will clear the virus on its own. (2)

Children are recommended to get the hepatitis A vaccine between 1 and 2 years old. Read the full list of adverse reactions on the manufacturer’s inserts HERE and HERE 

Below are a few possible reactions to the vaccine:

  • Thrombocytopenia
  • Guillain-Barré syndrome (can lead to paralysis)
  • Cerebellar ataxia (cerebellum inflammation)
  • Encephalitis (inflammation of the brain)
  • Anaphylactic reaction, anaphylactoid reaction, serum sickness-like syndrome
  • Hepatitis, jaundice

MOMSPEAK:

This is another vaccine that you can strike off the “necessary” list.

Hepatitis A is not serious in the VAST majority of cases and the body clears the virus on its own without treatment. Not to mention, a child gains lifelong immunity after they recover from hepatitis A.

It’s that simple.

VACCINE INJURY STORY

“My son was injured by vaccines at a year old. I was hesitant to get his one-year vaccines because I had started to hear that vaccines were bad, but my doctor assured me that he had had all of the shots before and that he would be fine. She lied. He had never had the Hep A vaccine, but I believed her and went ahead and got them. A week after he got his one-year shots he got horribly sick. We took him to the ER twice and no one could tell us what was wrong. He was puking his guts up, had horrible diarrhea, and wasn’t eating, all he could hold down for a few minutes was breastmilk. After he got better is when he started to regress. My son who was completely normal lost all ability to speak, he doesn’t make eye contact anymore, he holds his ears, he jumps, is very obsessive with shutting doors and lining up toys. He now has constant diarrhea at least 5 times a day. We just got an autism diagnosis on Feb 5th.

Vaccines totally took my baby from me.

He now has a four-month-old little sister who he saved from ever being injected with horrible vaccines.”
