Personal Stories

For decades, vaccine risk awareness groups like Vaccine Choice (Canada) have borne witness to the grief of families devastated by their child’s catastrophic vaccine injuries while the mantra “the vaccines didn’t do it” drones on and on.

Many of these children develop seizures and other health problems soon after vaccination. Parents are told that the seizures are not related to the vaccines, and are not a valid reason to delay the next round of shots. Held over their heads is the bogey man poised to attack the child with this or that disease if one deviates from the prescribed vaccine agenda. Shutting down their own reasoning and intuitive intelligence, parents are frightened into compliance and proceed on the disastrous course of more vaccines.

This mother’s letter recounts what happened to her child. Her experience is representative of the countless families whose children’s lives have been devastated by vaccine injuries.

“I believe 100% that my daughter was damaged from the vaccines.  In Dec 2007 my 5 month old daughter was given the following shots, diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, polio, Hib, hepatitis B, Meningococcal C and Prevnar (8 vaccines given at the same time). Two days later she had a grand mal seizure. By the time we got to the hospital it was over. I told the doctor and nurses that she just had her shots two days ago and they said well maybe she had a fever from the shot and that caused her seizure. She had no fever before or after the event; my concerns were ignored and brushed off. We were assured that everything was fine and it shouldn’t happen again so we went ahead with our travel plans to Ontario the next day.

She had another seizure when we arrived in Ontario. She was hospitalized for days and again I told every doctor and nurse we saw that this started two days after immunization – again brushed off and ignored. Probably fever seizures we were told again, except there was no fever.

She went a month or more with no seizures then when she got immunized again in Feb 2008 (a probable repeat of the 8 vaccines) they got worse and she was put on clobazam and she only had 1 seizure a month after that. In July 2008 she received five vaccines at the same time – meningococcal C, measles, mumps, rubella and chickenpox. That one did her in. Within a week she was having 2 seizures a week, then 3 and multiples in a day. She also stopped talking – she won’t even babble, just moans different pitches. By the beginning of September she was hospitalized for a month. Test after test with no answers.

Three MRIs, spinal tap, dozens of blood tests, liver, muscle, skin biopsies – no answers. What makes me extremely upset is that I was never warned of these possible side effects. I found out through my own investigation. No one reported the first incident or even questioned the fact that maybe further immunizations should be withheld until further investigation.

The second vaccine incident I first brushed off because I was reassured by many healthcare professionals that they can’t possibly be linked together. The third immunization incident the same thing. I thought it must be something else. I’ve racked my brain daily for hours on end. What changed, what happened in July to cause this? I am convinced 100% that these shots have damaged my daughter forever.

She is now 15 1/2 months old she has grand mal cluster seizures every 4-7 days. No meds are working enough to stop them, just enough to calm them. She used to say mama, dada and bubba (for bottle) now I can’t even get her to make a sound other than moans and growls. She can’t wave, clap or mimic anything at all. She used to dance to music now she won’t. She used to smile and laugh all the time – now it’s a struggle to get her to laugh. She can barely pull herself to stand. Walking anytime soon does not look promising.

My child does not deserve this; she just came into this world and it has been horrible to her. She has suffered countless IV pokes and blood test. Her little arms were so bruised from needles that no veins could be found for IV so she had one put into her neck and stitches were put in her neck to hold it in. Then she had an IO (an IV drilled into her leg bone) resulting in a possible bone infection. It swelled so much she wouldn’t stand on it for a week. Then surgery and the EEG gave her blisters all over her head – you name it she has gone through it.

I cry every day for my child and those responsible must be held accountable for doing this to our children. I don’t want even one more mother and child to go through what we’re going through. It’s preventable and avoidable.”

This child’s suffering, and her mother’s grief is the shared tragedy of countless families of vaccine injured children, the silent victims of overt violence inflicted on them by a medical system blinded by its fanatic adherence to vaccine dogma.

It is a call for us to awaken from the trance that has disempowered us, driven by the fear imposed on us. It is a call to abandon the blind trust we’ve had in doctors and understand that adherence to medical dogma can hurt our children. It means protecting our children from medical procedures you sense might be harmful – to listen to your heart, your higher wisdom when those internal warning bells start to ring loud and clear. It is a wake up call for us to learn to recognize the powerful signals telling us that our child is at imminent risk and to have the courage to stop the process which places our child in danger. In the case of vaccination, it’s knowing when to say, “stop, enough – no more vaccines”.

On a deeper, archetypal level, mothers everywhere are called now to reclaim their position as primary healer in the family – to understand that we are empowered to make truly wise decisions for our children when we trust our intuition and our intelligence first, rather than the dogmatic ‘say-so’ of some expert. From the beginning of time we have nurtured and nursed our children through sickness and in health. We know our children better than any “expert”, and we do know what is best for them.

When we learn to trust our intuitive signals and embrace the gift of our higher wisdom, knowing how to protect our children becomes second nature. Ancient wisdom teachings have echoed this message through the ages – that the message of the heart is always in alignment with truth. As we guard against societal training that conditions us to unquestioningly and obediently submit to the dictates of dogma, the mind becomes liberated and self-knowledge becomes our guide to truth and right living. In alignment with this truth, we can break the spell of mass-mindedness.

Hear This Well: Breaking the Silence on Vaccine Violence

On 8/27/14, CDC Scientist Bill Thompson issued a statement addressing his regret that he and his co-authors omitted “statistically significant information” in a 2004 study on the MMR vaccine causing autism. CNN reporter Deborah Goldschmidt then published an article which embedded a CNN video where health correspondent Elizabeth Cohen states that within all of the dangerous side-effects of vaccines, autism is not listed. She then rephrased saying, “Some people don’t hear this well: vaccines do not cause autism.” Outraged that CNN would choose to embed such a statement within Dr. Thompson’s confession that he and his co-authors had omitted evidence that African American males were at increased risk for autism from journal publication, autism parents across the country and across the globe responded to a call from the Autism Media Channel. These parents addressed the CNN correspondent directly, informing her that in their own families, vaccines had, in fact, caused autism.

Stories of vaccine-injured children – Raising a Sensitive Child Website

Given that the general public doesn’t accept that vaccines can injure, I decided to start a list of vaccine injuries (many of them written by parents). For simplicity, I’ve tried to classify each story into only one vaccine injury category (although many could be classified under several vaccine injury categories). This is only the very tip of the iceberg. If you have a vaccine injury story, please share your story and/or a link to your blog so that I can add your story here. How many stories do we need to hear to start to believe the truth?

Bob’s Story

On Oct 20 Bob had a flu shot. The following week Bob had chills and just couldn’t get warm. He had some difficulty swallowing on the right side of his throat. At one point he was wary about his balance with some stairs.

On Nov 1 during a walk, he experienced some stiffness in his legs and lack of control with one of his feet. Later that night he found that he was numb and tingly in the base of the feet and lacked balance and the ability to stand. By the morning the numbness and tingling feeling had progressed up his legs.

On Nov 2, Bob was rushed to the hospital with doctors considering two possible medical conditions – ALS or GBS. Through their assessment they determined that he had Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS). They immediately administered IVIG treatment over the next 5 nights in hopes of reversing the syndrome. Yet, over the next 7 days Bob’s condition worsened as the paralysis began to ascend through his body in turn creating havoc on his respiratory system.

Parents Voice Following Vaccination – testimonials of children’s adverse reactions & injuries following vaccination

On September the 18th 2010 I started an inquiry amongst parents of Autistic children. “I am compiling a list of children who were adversely affected by any vaccine. Please if you could say in about 4-6 sentences what that vaccine was, how they reacted, how they are today and what city the vaccine was administered.” … To date there are over 1100 comments here. There are additional comments found elsewhere at the bottom of this page (linked, and relating to autism), reports on a Vaccine damage reports database (mixed) and some reports regarding the HPV, Gardasil vaccine, totaling to more than 2300.

H1N1 Vaccine Side Effects – Canadians, Please report here!

Canadians for Health Freedom created a blog where personal testimonies and news reports of adverse reactions to the 2009/10 H1N1 vaccine could be reported. Arepanrix (H1N1 Vaccine with AS03 adjuvant) was used in Canada during the 2009/10 flu season. On October 13, 2009 an Interim Order was issued by then Minister of Health Leona Aglukkaq which authorized the sale of Arepanrix based on limited clinical testing in humans. Arepanrix H1N1 vaccine did not receive a Notice of Compliance or a Drug Identification Number. Canadians are still suffering the effects of this vaccine.

We had no informed consent before Gardasil changed our lives.
Story by Glenda Smith

“It wasn’t until I reported her side effects to the local health unit I found out the HPV shot was Gardasil. It was only after I reported adverse reactions that the local health unit directed me to the manufacturer’s website and Merck’s product monograph. I was appalled at the very long list of side effects worded much differently than the information I had been given. It included phrases like a ‘weakened immune system’ as one of the risks. At the bottom of the list it stated “this is not a complete list of side effects.” Had I been given an opportunity to read this ahead of time, I would have never agreed to Angela receiving Gardasil at all.”
