loss of vaccine immunity and MITO
Hi my son is 4 1/2yrs old. He has Mito, seizures, dysmotility, GERD, hypotonia, and metabolic issues. When he was 3 we did a titer test to see if all of his immunizations had taken. We did this because he had had recurrent upper respitory infections. What we discovered was that the prevnar vaccine had not taken so we had to give him pneumovax. Now 1 1/2yrs later his G and J tube became infected yet again, and this time the culture grew haemophilus influenza which he should have been protected from by the Hib vaccine. I am just wondering if anybody else has had this expierence of losing vaccine immunity and if so what was done about it? Is anybody on IVIG for similar reasons? He has chronic tube infections.
