Vaccines contain antigens from toxins, viruses, or bacteria that help your body produce antibodies to help prevent future infections.
Of course, we are all exposed to these types of antigens every day.
In fact, experts state that we are exposed to thousands, if not millions, of antigens each day.
Eating. Drinking. Breathing. Touching things. These every day actions all can introduce antigens from viruses, bacteria, parasites, and toxins, etc., into our bodies.
And even though kids get many more vaccines today, and are protected against many more vaccine-preventable diseases than they once were, they actually get far fewer antigens from those vaccines than they once did.
Newer vaccines have a fraction of the antigens that the older DPT and smallpox vaccines once did.
That’s why the popular “too many too soon” anti-vaccine myth shouldn’t scare you from getting your kids vaccinated and protected.
