According to the British Medical Journal, febrile seizures occur in roughly 1 in 640 kids following the MMR vaccine.

MMR Vaccine Causes Seizures in 5,700 U.S. Children Annually
The California-based nonprofit organization, Physicians for Informed Consent (PIC), recently reported in The BMJ that every year about 5,700 U.S. children suffer seizures from the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine. This finding is derived from results of the most statistically powered safety study ever to measure the association between MMR vaccination and febrile seizures. More than half a million children were evaluated, both vaccinated and unvaccinated, from a Danish population that is relied upon globally to examine vaccine safety.
The results showed that seizures from the MMR vaccine occur in about 1 in 640 children up to two weeks following MMR vaccination. Applying this risk of seizures to the 3.64 million U.S. children vaccinated with a first dose of MMR every year results in about 5,700 annual MMR-vaccine seizures.
As alarming as this information is, I don’t think it will have an impact here in the states because I do believe that children are kept out of schools if they have not had their vaccinations. The claim is that the unvaccinated children would cause a health threat to the vaccinated children. I don’t know how that could be the case if a child is vaccinated against those diseases. I am wondering if they believe that the vaccines sometimes work and sometimes don’t; a case of Russian roulette, I suppose.
The more I look into this ugly vaccine mess, Shelby, the uglier it becomes. You are correct that if the vaccines were full effective, the vaccinated children would have no reason to worry. The problem is that they offer incomplete protection (because they don’t affect cell mediated immunity – the main mechanism the body uses to fight off viruses) and because their effectiveness is lost entirely after 4-5 hours. It turns out to be the other way around – the vaccinated children are a health threat to the unvaccinated ones because they shed live virus in the week or so following vaccination.
