ASA and BabyJabsFor the second time this year BabyJabs has been ordered by the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) to remove information from our web site. We have had to remove information about the MMR vaccine and its side-effects despite the fact that all side-effects had been reported in the scientific literature. It seems that any criticism of the MMR vaccine is actively discouraged.
BabyJabs exists to give parents the opportunity to immunise their child in the way that they choose. Parents can decide when to start, how frequently to give vaccines and with which vaccines to vaccinate. To help with this we offer a large selection of single and small combination vaccines, aluminium-free wherever possible. We had listed detailed information, including a full list of ingredients, of all the vaccines we offer on our web site. The ASA has told us that we are not allowed to do this and so we have now removed this information. Parents can still obtain this information from us by request and we will continue to offer individualised immunisation schedules so that you can immunise your child the way that you choose to. We believe that discussion about vaccines and vaccine safety should not be stifled but encouraged to take place in a calm and tolerant manner. We shall continue to do this at BabyJabs.
