VacciShield for Infants and Kids from WellFuture

The purpose of this post is to provide a review of a product provided to me for free, to test and share my experiences and opinion regarding it's performance on supporting my daughter's immune system during vaccinations. This post is NOT to be a discussion regarding no-vax, delayed vax, spaced-vax, or full/ scheduled vax. Please refrain from initiating discussion regarding those topics.  THANKS!

I had the opportunity to review this fantastic product that I guarantee made a HUGE difference for our family when my daughter had her most recent round of vaccinations.
You see, my daughter gets abnormally sick from her vaccinations- this isn't just crazy mama super anti-vax talk here. See, she always has such a reaction, that we have to schedule her vaccines on Thursday or Friday, because we're guaranteed to have a temp of over 102+ within 24-36 hours of getting her vaccine. Every. Single. Time. Talk about a seriously frustrated mama when we can't get those Thursday or Friday appointments. We split her vaccinations by 2 weeks per 1-2 sticks, depending on what she is receiving at the time. Whenever she receives any more than these 1-2 sticks, she ends up sick for more than a week. There are vaccinations that we will not be administering based upon research, but that's a discussion for a different time.

We use a daily multivitamin supplement with probiotics for our regular vitamin needs. But this doesn't prevent our "vaccination funk". Well, I came across WellFuture, a company that provides a multivitamin supplement designed for infants and children to increase immune support prior to vaccinations and they provided me with a container of their VacciShield for Infants and Kids to test while we went through Nugget's vaccines this go-round.

So what is VacciShield? Who made it? Why am I even sharing this information with you?
VacciShield is a nutritional supplement for infants and children designed for use with vaccinations. VacciShield was created by a naturopathic physician and mother who was concerned about the health of her family. VacciShield was created to help promote healthy brain, immune, gastrointestinal and detoxification function during vaccination. Each ingredient is backed by current research that shows how VacciShield helps the areas of the body that become vulnerable to vaccine side effects by supporting healthy brain, immune, gastrointestinal and detoxification function. Our unique blend of probiotics, vitamins, and minerals has been formulated to meet the specific challenges and needs of a growing child. VacciShield's easy fourteen once-a-day doses during the two weeks surrounding vaccination couldn't be simpler. We never use any artificial flavoring, coloring or preservatives in our products. VacciShield is made in the USA and adheres to the strictest quality control standards. Our manufacturing facilities are FDA approved and GMP certified so you know that VacciShield only contains quality ingredients for quality health. VacciShield has no gluten or dairy. We never use any fillers, binders, artificial colorings, flavorings or preservatives. Vaccishield contains the following: L-Glutamine, Probiotics, Zinc, Vitamin C, Vitamin D3, Selenium, Vitamin E, Choline and Inositol. Check out VacciShield's full ingredient list with information regarding each ingredient.
VacciShield for Infants and Kids is super user friendly and completely idiot proof. You begin giving the supplement for 7-10 days prior to vaccinations once daily, for a total of 14 days. Since we were doing an extended protocol, we just continued through the month she was going to be receiving the shots. You just scoop a teeny scoop (based on age/size) into yogurt, breast milk, formula, juice or food- literally anything you're going to be giving to your child.

I even tried it in plain water. It is slightly tart and the minerals do not completely dissolve in the water; however, it does not cause it to be super gritty or unpleasant. My daughter always would say "mmmmmmmmmmmmmm taaaateeee" (tasty) whenever it was mixed into her milk.

Let me just say this: this time was the FIRST time, in her entire TWO YEARS of life that she didn't end up under the weather, with a fever, sick or even generally cranky from her vaccinations. I can't say if it was completely related to this amazing product, but I can say this is the first time in her two years that she didn't get crazy sick from vaccinations. And that, my friends, really is enough evidence for me.

How do you keep your little ones healthy before/after their vaccinations?

  1. THANK YOU for this review!! My daughter always get a fever with shots & it out of sorts for at least 2-3 days & a couple times has succumbed to whatever bug is going around because her immune system is down with them. I was dreading her 2yr appt coming up in Dec. I have a 3 month old as well & have had to delay his shots due to colds & my own dread with seeing how his tiny body will react to them. I refuse to do them when I know they are fighting a bug. I am buying this product tonight! I will try anything to help my little ones survive shots!

    1. I am so happy we found something that's going to help your little ones!!!!
