Does anyone have any information on naturally acquired immunity to pneumonia? Both of my kids had it within the past month and I am just wondering if we can check that one off our list or if it could happen again. I've read mixed things, it looks like the immunity is short term and if it happens again it won't be as bad.

as far as I know you cannot be immune but I've not done research for it

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.

i know my grandpa has gotten pneumonia about a dozen times in the past decade. i think its bacteria, so you cant become immune to it.. although it makes sense that in a healthy body, subsequent pneumonia could be fought off better. whole foods! vitamins!

From my understanding they had the microplasma/atypical pneumonia which turned in to bacterial. Mycoplasma Infection (walking pneumonia, atypical pneumonia)

Quote:
Does past infection with mycoplasma make a person immune?

Immunity after mycoplasma infection does occur, but is not lifelong. Second infections are known to occur, although they may be milder. The duration of immunity is unknown.
But I guess what you're saying is that they could get sick with something else that could cause pneumonia. So at least we've crossed off this common cause off the list but I shouldn't count on avoiding others.

It SUCKED!
