Immuno bionet readers,
       My personal experience and a number of readings indicate that when
A reasonable level of Vitamin C is circulating in plasma, responses to
insect bites are localized and not systemic.  This requires that the Vitamin
C be ingested at least a few hours before, but not too long before, since
it disappears from plasma in less than 12 hours.  Vaccination with a needle
is very much like an insect bite.  Vitamin C in plasma should prevent any
undesired systemic or autoimmune response.
       Since a 500 mg tablet costs around 2 cents, it is beyond my
comprehension why it is not routinely given, or taken, prior to a
vaccination.  If it saves thousands of dollars in medical costs and
prevents so much possible grief and pain, 2 cents is a small price
to pay.
Regards, Ralph L. Samson
