Now McCarthy, along with her boyfriend, actor Jim Carrey, serves on the board of directors of Generation Rescue, an advocacy and research organization that calls for eliminating toxins in vaccines and for delaying shot schedules.
Notice “delaying” shot schedules.
Another quote, talking about her own experiences:
Going over his medical history now, she sees a link between a series of ear infections, a severe case of eczema, and a hepatitis-B booster shot. “Looking back, I’d say, ‘God, if a kid is having more than seven ear infections in a year and he’s got eczema, there are some issues here—his immune system is obviously under attack, and we need to put him in the sensitive category. Let’s just delay some of his shots,’ ” she says. “Not eliminate, delay.”
Again, note the phrease “Not eliminate, delay”.
This isn’t exactly new. The Generation Rescue website page on vaccines tells parents to “consder delaying vaccines”. As near as I can tell, GR has had a statement like this since the vaccines page was first put up.
But here is where actions and words part company for both Jenny McCarthy and Generation Rescue. They have “recommended” vaccine schedules. Their “favorite” schedule, included in their paragraph on “consider delaying” vaccines, states flat out: no live virus vaccines. I.e. no Measles, Mumps, Rubella or Varicella (chicken pox).
Hepatitis B Rotavirus Diptheria Tetanus Pertussis Haemophilus influenzae type b Pneumococcal Polio Influenza Measles Mumps Rubella Varicella Hepatitis A Meningococcal
Now let’s check GR, Jenny McCarthy’s organization, and their recommended schedules:
First, GR’s “favorite” schedule only has protection against 4 diseases.
Pertussis Diptheria Tetanus and, Polio
Again, that’s not “delay” that’s “eliminate”.
For their second option, GR claims you can “turn back the clock” and use the 1983 schedule. I don’t know how anyone could think that is supposed to be a “delay” in shots. Here’s the count (6 diseases covered):
