According to a recent release of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in 2017, a six-year-old Oregon boy was housed for 57 days after a tetanus diagnosis.

The boy, who was allegedly never received a tetanus vaccination, has dismissed his head “while playing outdoors on a farm.” He was not taken to any medical facility, and his would be cleaned and sewn at home.

Less than a week later (about 6 days), the boy began to show symptoms of tetanus, including “jaw crushing” and involuntary upper limb muscle spasms, followed by the neck and back “, reportedly reported.

When he began to have trouble breathing, the boy was taken to a hospital where he received care.

His wounds were cleaned, damaged tissue was removed, and he received a DTaP vaccine (diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis), as well as “tetanus immunoglobulin.” The boy obviously had high blood pressure and The temperature reached 1

04.9 degrees Five days into the boy’s hospital stay, doctors accepted a tracheostomy

The report continues:

As of sick day 35, the patient tolerated a 5-day wean from neuromuscular blockade. ventilator support, and he tolerated sips of clear liquids, on day 47 he was transferred to the middle care, three days later he walked 20 meters with help, on day 54 his tracheosto was removed mi and 3 days later he was transferred to a rehabilitation center for 17 days.

In total, “inpatient fees” only cost over $ 800,000. After the boy’s recovery, the family allegedly refused DTaP.

The report notes that “this is the first pediatric tetanus case in [over 30] years in Oregon.”

According to the Mayo Clinic, “tetanus is caused by a toxin made from bacteria, Clostridium tetani, found in soil, dust and animal faeces. When the spores enter a deep meat wound, they grow into bacteria that can produce a powerful toxin , tetanospasm. “

While a cramped vaccine was in development in the 1920s, it did not regularly receive children until the late 1940s. From the end of the 1940s to the present, tetanus cases have dropped from 500 to 600 annually to approximately yearly 29, the CDC reports.

Of the 197 reported cases of tetanus in 2009-2015, 16 people died. It’s a 8.1% mortality rate.

According to the CDC, 2016 data show that 62.2% of adults were current on their tetanus vaccination. A large majority of young children and infants are adequately vaccinated.

The modern anti-vaccination movement appears to have been displaced by a 1998 paper by Andrew Wakefield and a dozen colleagues claiming that the measles vaccine may be linked to autism in children. The result was later and repeatedly interrupted, but the myth has continued.

As it turned out, Wakefield had been funded by lawyers who had been brought by parents in trials against vaccine-producing companies, according to a paper published in the Indian Journal of Psychiatry 2011. In addition, the paper reports that Wakefield and others “were guilty of deliberate fraud (they chose and chose data that suited their case, the fake facts). “
