How big should adult vaccines be?

big man

We’re all super excited about the recent media blitz for adult vaccinations over here at LQ headquarters. It’s about time! What’s the point in being a pro-vaccine warrior when your entire front line is made of babies?

Nothing spells the end of vaccine injury denialism like 20% of adults developing out-of-the-blue food allergies, epilepsy, Type 1 diabetes and “early onset” Alzheimers.

In an effort to be as helpful as possible, though, I’d like to point out that even adults who keep up with their current schedule aren’t getting vaccinated enough. It’s only fair that we adjust vaccine dosing to keep the ingredients proportionate to each patient’s weight, just as we do for children’s antibiotic or pain reliever.

Since the 2005 piece in the Journal of American Veterinary Medical Association about the increased dangers of vaccinating dogs with lower body weights didn’t wake anyone up, then the least we can do is raise the vaccine quota for grownups.

Let’s start with scary influenza. The Flulaval vaccine is approved for 6 month old babies who, on average, weigh 16 pounds, but it’s also approved for adults. The wonderful thing about Flulaval is that not only has the FDA approved it for children up to eight years old, but they got approval for two full doses at least four weeks apart. So good you give it twice.

Since the average American woman weighs 166 pounds, we’re going to need every adult female to get 20 Flulaval shots this season. Feel free to take them in 2 sets of 10, spaced 4 weeks apart. You will be taking in 20 times the amount of formaldehyde, known to cause cancer, and 20 times the amount of polysorbate 80, which opens the blood brain barrier to bacteria, viruses (including the four strains of the flu in the vaccine), and of course, the half milligram of mercury that comes in four full Flulaval vials.

I’m sure you understand that this is only fair. If 2 Flulaval are great for a baby, 20 are even better for you. Together we can fight the flu, and your role in taking 20 flu vaccines every September is critical in reaching our goal.

Remember: your next “flu shot selfie” doesn’t count toward social media virtue signaling unless we see five Bandaids on each shoulder, two months in a row. From here on out, people will openly laugh if there is only one measly Bandaid on your flabby bingo wing, and rightfully so.

And while the CDC doesn’t recommend the Tdap vaccine for adults more than once between the ages of 18 and death, the media is taking liberty to say that adults should get it anyway if their “immunity to pertussis is unknown.” What is known is that pertussis antibodies from the Tdap vaccine last less than one year, so you can bet your butt that your whooping cough vaccine immunity from childhood is non-existent this year, next year, and every year.

The infant version of the Tdap– which actually contains more pertussis antigens than the Tdap–is called the DTaP, and given to nine-pound infants at two months old. Therefore the appropriate weight-adjusted dosage for the average adult is going to be 20 whooping cough vaccines every year. I’m going to go ahead and say that it’s critical that you take all 20 Tdaps at once since the vaccine isn’t very effective. Do your part and don’t be a puss. Most importantly, stay on schedule.

Likewise, the MMR is indicated for babies 12 months and older, who typically weigh about 19 pounds. We give the MMR at one year, and again at four years old. As we now know, the protection from the childhood MMR vaccine falls way short of lasting a lifetime. And measles kills 100,000 people a year! Not here, but somewhere!

In order to give the equivalent childhood dose, every man in America– where our big boys average 196 pounds– will need a catch-up schedule of 10 MMRs immediately, followed by another 5 doses 3 years later, just to be on the safe side of immunity. Don’t worry, I’m sure that getting 15 times the amount of cells from that 16-week old aborted WI-38 fetus isn’t going to feel like injecting a baby lung. Try to relax and put that out of your mind because science has proven that vaccines work better if you’re in a good mood.

And it’s important that you listen to your body! Because if you didn’t already have a pig gelatin allergy, you might get one soon.

Yours in (injectable) health,

LQ

PS

All in all, if an adult were to submit to the weight-adjusted version of the schedule that four-year old children are expected to adhere to, it would be well over 500 doses of single and three-in-one combination shots in 48 months.

Think on that.

  1. For those worried about the increased toxic load from such a large amount of vaccines, worry no more! Dr Paul Offit, pediatrician and number one Josh Coleman fan, has arbitrarily decided that an infant can get 10,000 vaccines without harm.

  2. They are trolling for customers. Can’t blame ’em; they’re in business to make money, after all. Fiduciary duty and all that, and Christmas season is their most important sales event. Don’t be so hard on them, Levi!

  3. Thank you for this informative blog. I love it! As usual, I ask & then receive. I was wondering about the doses required for adults & you’ve answered it for me. I can now advise on the appropriate dose for adults who believe in sticking to the schedule..excellent.

  4. I’d still be teaching public school if I weren’t busy homeschooling my kids; SB277 bars them from attending. But if I showed up to teach tomorrow, nobody would ask whether I’ve received 15 or 500 or even one dose of any vaccine. It seems the Equal Protection Clause is no match for Sen. Pan and his own “front line made of babies”

  5. Fantastic. We’re working with JourneyBoost.com to get some vaccine stickers made to use on the outside of mailings, etc. I think we should turn this blog post into a straight forward meme and put it on a sticker! Hehehe

    You should get your own domain, wordpress.com isn’t worthy of content of this quality!

  6. One TDaP for adults doesn’t include the one every single pregnancy, in pregnancy, even less than a year apart for pregnant mom’s. Should she get 21? 20 for her, 1 for baby?

    1. Good point, but we don’t want to cause babies to suffer more than they already do. Let’s vaccinate the mom before she leaves the hospital, even if she already had her 20 doses before becoming pregnant that year.

Be respectful to others. Don't include a dozen links. Don't write 500 words. This is my blog, not your blog.
