The eventual decision has been that while some researchers still feel that vaccinations may impair the immune function, putting your child at a higher risk of developing allergies and asthma, there’s no connection between the two.
In fact, scientists who have studied children who have been vaccinated, and those that haven’t, have found that both groups had a similar incidence of asthma, which rules out the possibility of a link.
It’s quite possible that the rise in asthma has been caused by completely unrelated environmental factors, and since having vaccinations done means that your child is protected from many much more dangerous illnesses, it does not make sense to avoid vaccinations on these grounds. Rather have your children vaccinated, and make sure they are safe from disease.
So, although scientists once believed that there may be a link between allergies, asthma and vaccinations, it’s since been proven that there is none, and it’s safe to have your children vaccinated, without increasing their chances of being asthmatic.
