Children and adults alike occasionally need vaccinations, booster shots, or inoculations against various childhood ailments, the flu, or other infectious agents that can cause disease. Particularly children with undeveloped immune systems, but also the elderly and the immune-compromised may need vaccinations to prevent infections their bodies could not otherwise handle.
However, some vaccinations are more important than others, and all inoculations carry some degree of risk. How do you know which shots you or your child should be getting?
Well, aside from government regulations, your doctor's advice, and standard vaccination schedules you can also trust the voice of experience here in the Earth Clinic community. Check out the advice below on vaccination side effects, homeopathic remedies, vaccinations for children, travel vaccination advice, and more.
Hey there, I have a question. I am traveling to India for the first time I am 29 and have never had any kind of shot or immunization, nor do I believe in them per say. I am a very healthy person. I am wondering though if its important to get shots for the trip, and what ones? I really don't want to mess around with getting really sick. Please let me know your thoughts. Thank you, Sara

If a person was forced to have an immunization shot what can be done before/after to counteract, the side effects of it. Does it make a difference what the shot was for? I am most concerned about forced flu shots. Thank you.Replied by Timh
