An autism expert warned parents to be concerned about young children having an “unprecedented” number of viruses that can affect their brains as part of the influenza vaccine.
Steven Schonfeld, managing director of the Center for Vaccine Ethics at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, said last week a spike in symptoms by children ages 3 to 5 is “hard to explain away,” especially in a so-called “sick flu season.”
The CDC now reports that 100 million Americans have the flu.
Schoold told “Fox & Friends” on Tuesday that a rise in abnormal neurological symptoms shows the severity of the flu.

“There have been 10 times more children with Guillain-Barre syndrome in the United States than there have been in any other year,” he said.
Garrett Melcher, an internist and emergency physician in Fort Worth, Texas, told “Fox & Friends” that people don’t go to the emergency room if they think their symptoms are not life-threatening.
Melcher said that for most people, just a fever is enough to alert them to the flu and that this year there is a recommendation from the Centers for Disease Control to get the influenza shot.
He said that the virus is contained in the flu shot, but not in some of the side effects, adding that up to 20 percent of the vaccines must be thrown out if the person gets the flu.
Melcher called vaccination “the most widespread public health intervention in the U.S.”
