The theory behind mass vaccination is not that if enough people are vaccinated, an epidemic will be prevented even though everyone is not vaccinated. Our oldest exhibited severe symptoms after getting the first shot in the DPT series. We told the doctor that we did not want to continue with the triad and to give him only the DT part, and the doctor insisted that we were alarmists; and maybe a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, but we did not back down. With a different pediatrician with the younger child, she asked about potential allergic reactions in his older brother, then gave him the limited vaccine.
