To many people, getting vaccines – especially while living abroad – is of utmost priority. But each country has a slightly different schedule. Doctors in China are usually not opened-minded about altering their own schedule, so it’s important that you know what the Chinese schedule is.
Through our years of having children in China, we’ve been able to compile a comprehensive list of available vaccines in China and the schedule on which they are followed. We’ve consulted with Chinese doctors, American doctors and other expats living in China. Download it today for your own copy.

What vaccines are included?

Did you read about the eight babies that died in China recently after getting Hep B vaccinations from two different manufacturers? http://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-12-25/an-china-hep-b-scare/5174864
It’s bad enough being scared of what might be in infant formula. At least you’re not injecting it into your baby. But before you start even thinking about whether vaccines in China might be too much of a risk for your child, I urge all parents to read up on vaccines in general. It never occurred to me to do so until the day my daughter was born, and they gave her a Hep B vaccination (http://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-12-25/an-china-hep-b-scare/5174864) without even asking me.
So when I looked it up (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hepatitis_B#Transmission) I wondered why they give this vaccine to babies routinely, even in Australia. Neither my wife nor I have Hepatitis B, nor could I see on the first day of my daughter’s life any evidence of her being involved in prostitution, homosexual activity or intravenous drug use. That’s why I find it strange … to risk giving a vaccine for a disease she has such a low likelihood of being infected with.
We are expected to just shut our mouths and go with the program. It’s supposed to be about calculating risks, and taking the safer option. Doing stuff without consideration… that’s not science!
When something like a febrile convulsion occurs in a child (usually from 6 months – 6 years old) it is a terrifying ordeal for any parent and naturally one wants a reason for this.
Being given a vaccine less than one week prior to the convulsion, it is very hard for the parents not to believe this to be the cause. The truth is they will never know for certain if the vaccine caused it though they will likely put the blame on it unfortunately.
There are hundreds of credible research papers proving the benefits of a childhood vaccine program (the main benefit being preventing deaths) and while all vaccines may cause a temperature in a young child, it the fever, not the vaccine, that causes these convulsions. Most convulsions thankfully end without serious consequence. Some tragically do end with life long sequelae or possibly worse outcomes but these are very small numbers.
If vaccines were actually harmful then no government would ever allow a single one to be given to their children (keep in mind, government officials have children of their own)
PS Remember the scare of MMR and autism – the doctor who released this information to the world ended up in jail because of the knock-on effect of parent not vaccinating their children which as a result, ended up with the deaths of hundreds of childrens from measles, mumps and rubella. (Measles is the 5th highest cause of death to children <10 years old around the world)
Hi Doctor M,
You say it is very hard for the parents not to believe the vaccination may be the cause of an illness when a child falls ill shortly after injections. This is especially so when the symptoms of the sick child are an exact match for the adverse effects listed on the vaccine product insert. The refusal by many doctors to even consider the vaccine as a factor even when an adverse event follows a vaccination so closely sharply skews the statistics parents are presented with. This is not science.
Your statement “if vaccines were actually harmful”, implies that you don’t believe any vaccines are really harmful in any way. This “x is good” avoids the truth that there are positive and negatives to all things. I have taken an open approach to vaccines, yet time and time again, when I ask a stern-voiced doctor to please give me the risk numbers on a disease versus its vaccination, they cannot. Instead, they provide me with anecdotes and tell ME to go look it up. This is not science.
The autism link to was discredited soundly by Poul Thorsen (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poul_Thorsen), who is now on the run after having been indicted for 13 counts of wire fraud and 9 counts of money laundering. All of this perpetrated on the CDC who he was doing the vaccine research for. But of course we should not let this cast a shadow on the validity of his research – The Science is In!
As for the governments would do no harm argument, I think the millions of people in shallow mass graves around the world would disagree with that. I think that politicians are getting plenty of donations from pharmaceutical companies, is what I think. And the only thing with more spin than the pharmaceutical lobbyists is the revolving doors between their companies and the FDA.
You say: “If vaccines were actually harmful then no government would ever allow a single one to be given to their children (keep in mind, government officials have children of their own)”
Can you explain why then the US federal government maintains multi-billion dollar Vaccine Injury Compensation Fund which pays out regularly to vaccine injured individuals?
Our friends kid in Sichuan has just gone into convulsions and spasms after a bout of high fever… less than a week after having a vaccination at 16 months… the doctor says it must be a bacterial infection from a small mouth ulcer … since of course it couldn’t possibly be related to the vaccination, oh no, because the vaccination bible says so…
Tamhas, I am so sorry what your friends’ child is going through. I hope his incident can help some people reevaluate their beliefs about vaccines.
Sad to say, but this whole thing (illness from the vaccine) is a relatively common scenario. I was VERY pro vax and vaccinated my first child to the DAY at birth, 1 mo and 2 month. But only until then, because it was obvious she got severely ill the next day after the 2 month round, changing our lives forever….and stayed ill for years (at age 3, we underwent a long term protocol to heal her from severe gut problems, PDD NOS, sensory issues, facial and vocal tics…more…)
I ask everyone who blindly believes “all vaccines are good, and more vaccines could only be even better” take a look at the FDA package inserts for the vaccines here.
LOOK UP those ingredients. You will be sickened. Sister to Nonoxynol-9, a spermicide, Triton-X is a detergent used in the lab to split DNA. Polysorbate 80 (also in your Baskin Robbins, and ColdStone creamery ice cream and some mayonnaises!!) is a known anti fertility agent and causes genital mutations in lab animals. No Sh&t. I am not fooling you. Formaldehyde, a known carcinogen.
Aluminum, it’s in nearly every vaccine now. Even the HepB at birth (250micrograms) and the Pediarix and Infanrix (625 ug!) re: aluminum, Shaw and Tomljenovic have shown the kind in vaccines causes motor neuron death, Gulf War syndrome, autoimmune diseases and more. They are not activists. They set up experiments and were floored at what they found. Somehow, the powers that be have not shut them down yet.
Please please research vaccines, people, there is another side of this story, highly oppressed, and parents must decide on GOOD INFORMATION not hyperbole.
You can get IPV if you pay extra. We went with OPV anyway.
Is the Polio still the Oral (live) polio it always was? Or have they gone to the shot?
As far as we know it is still oral.
