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?
What strikes me as I’ve started to list these stories is how the vaccines have affected the brains of our children (death, brain damage, loss of consciousness, strokes, autism), in addition to increasing the suspectibility to infections. These stories provide a sad, vivid and harsh context for Dr. Blaydock’s scientific review, “The Dangers of Excessive Vaccination during Brain Development”. Not included in the list below is all of the many, many children who suffer with eczema, asthma, allergies, the risk of anaphylaxis, ear infections, ADHD, etc. They are not included in this list because the link is not as obvious to parents (it’s hard to tell if our children would not have had asthma or allergies if they had not received any vaccinations, especially given that children start receiving vaccinations at such a young age, at birth or two months old), but there are several scientific studies that have shown the link between vaccinations and these diseases. I have no doubt that my son is one of those whose asthma, allergies and anaphylaxis risk increased because of the vaccinations that he received. This is in addition to his obvious negative reactions to the MMR vaccination (despite the fact that we delayed until he was over three years old).
An excerpt from Dr. Tenpenny’s new book, Vaccine Wars:
“A fact that cannot be debated, however, is that we have a national epidemic of sick children… We have come to accept asthma, allergies, eczema, chronic ear infections, and learning difficulties as ‘normal’ childhood conditions. In our zeal to eradicate infectious disease, it appears we have traded the usual mild diseases in childhood, such as chickenpox, mumps and measles, for a lifetime of poor health and drugs. We have exchanged temporary illnesses for pervasive life-long diseases, disorders, dysfunctions and disabilities. A chronic illness held in check by medication is not health. The well-being of children and a community must be gauged by more than high vaccination rates and low infection rates caused by a specific, short list of pathogens.”
Or, as Dr. Mercola puts it, “Today, half of all U.S. children are chronically sick with asthma, allergies, learning disabilities and other illnesses such as autism and epilepsy. That’s 32 million U.S. children who are sick all the time, every day”.
And a recent articles states that, “One in six U.S. children now has a developmental disability such as autism, learning disorders or attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), according to new research from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention”.
Children who are most susceptible to vaccine damage are those children with compromised immune systems. In addition, if your family has a history of autoimmune disorders or are poor methylators (e.g., Alzheimer’s, depression), your child is at a greater risk for vaccine injury. More about this here.
***I encourage you to search the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). To date (as of March 6, 2012) the VAERS website has 387,333 vaccine reactions that have been reported. The actual number of adverse reactions will be much greater than this number. I have not summarized any of the information in the VAERS system. You can also search the National Vaccine Information Centre’s (NVIC) International Memorial for Vaccine Victims’ website, which lists 161 vaccine reactions to date.
Since the creation of the Vaccine Compensation Injury Program (VCIP) in 1988 (the same year mercury was added to most childhood vaccines), the program has paid $2,429,787,664.52 in compensation to neurologically injured children as of 2012. (Source: HRSA Vaccine Compensation Statistics). In fiscal year 2014 alone, the court granted $202 million to 365 vaccine-injury victims.
If stories don’t provide enough evidence for you, click on this link for 300 pages of peer-reviewed scientific abstracts culled directly from the National Library of Medicine’s pubmed.gov bibliographic database on the wide-ranging adverse health effects linked to vaccines in the today’s schedule (over 200 distinct adverse effects, including death), as well as numerous studies related to vaccine contamination, and vaccine failure in highly vaccine compliant populations (more info about this here).

- A Stanly County 2-year-old suffered brain damage after getting a chicken pox vaccination in 2008. Two weeks later he developed seizures and was subsequently diagnosed with encephalitis, or permanent brain damage. Now 8, the boy is totally impaired. In December 2014, the court awarded the child lump sums totaling $1.9 million, plus annual medical expenses for the rest of his life.
- Nicolas’ story – 4 months old – He passed away less than 3 days after receiving the 4 month vaccines (DTaP, IPV, Hib, PCV and Rota). “My son received his shots Friday morning and by late Sunday night- early Monday morning, he was gone.” The neuropathologist clearly stated that, in his opinion, vaccines were the likely cause of his death.
- A total of 36 infants died after receiving the 6-in-1 vaccine, Infanrix Hexa. GlaxoSmithKline received a total of 1,742 reports of adverse reactions between October 23, 2009, and October 22, 2011, including 503 serious adverse reactions and 36 deaths. In addition to these 36 deaths at least 37 other deaths (sudden death mainly), bringing the total to at least 73 deaths since the launch of the vaccine in 2000. Read more here.

- “According to Harris Coulter, a medical historian and scientist, SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) was not reported in the statistics before the rise of mass vaccinations because of its rarity. As vaccination rates have risen, so have SIDS rates. When Japan put a moratorium on all vaccinations before the age of two, their SIDS rate plummeted to almost nothing.” Read more here.
Vaccine injury: Brain and nerve damage
- A scientific study published in Pediatrics 1998 found a causal relationship between the measles vaccine and permanent brain damage or death.
- The study reviewed the claims to the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program between 1970 and 1993. They found a total of 48 children, ages 10 to 49 months, who developed acute encephalopathy (i.e., brain injury) after receiving measles vaccine. Within this group, 8 children died, and the remainder had mental regression and retardation, chronic seizures, motor and sensory deficits, and movement disorders.
- A list of several scientific studies linking vaccines with neurological disorders, including brain swelling here.
- Lorrin’s story – Lorrin was 6 weeks old when she was injured by the DPT vaccination – multiple seizures and brain damage. “In 1998 we put Lorrin into a coma twice to stop her seizures, she then went on to have chronic lung disease. She was a quadriplegic, cortically blind, non-verbal, breathed through a tracheal diversion. She had 13 surgeries and countless procedures. I never left her side at the hospital and in 1998 alone, we spent 171 days in ICU… My little girl, Lorrin Danielle Kain, died in my arms at home December 22, 2009.” She was 16 years old. “Even though it was agreed that Lorrin was vaccine injured, it took three long years to settle with the NVCP regarding how much money my daughter’s life was worth.” “”In this time we learned that Lorrin received what is called a “Hot Lot”, that means that 30 kids had seizures or worse reported with the same lot that Lorrin had had, there were also 10 surrounding deaths. It is important to mention here that the drug companies back then and still do today, scatter the lots, when mailing them to the doctor’s office. Lorrin’s lot was scattered all over the United States so that the same doctor would not see all the vaccine reactions. This is legal and approved by our government”.
- Julia’s story – MMR vaccination led to Julia’s permanent brain damage (the injury was acknowledged by a federal court payout). “She was blue and cold and her body was arched, her eyes were looking in opposite directions, and she was covered in feces and vomit,” she recalls. “We thought she was dead.” She was rushed to the hospital, where doctors said she was having seizures, and she was put into a medically induced coma. Julia spent many days in intensive care and the neurology ward before being sent home with the diagnosis of encephalitis, or swelling of the brain.
- Katie’s story – 18 months old – received DTaP vaccination. “Within days my sister was hospitalized with encephalitis (yes, she is your one in a million). Doctors said the swelling in her brain was so severe that the lining between the brain and the skull had literally fused to her skull. Since then my sister Katie has suffered from daily seizures and has progressively gotten worse as the years go by. Multiple pneumonias yearly due to the loss of being able to swallow without aspirating. Brain surgeries, a bought with life threatening sepsis that left her on life support in 2012 are among the many things she has had to endure. My sister is resigned to a hospital bed and now requires a feeding tube and 24 hr care.“
- Albert, Andrew and Marco’s story – Marco’s recorded clinical symptoms, which had appeared after the Sabin polio vaccination and correlated through the pediatrician to the anti polio vaccine, were as follows: ocular nystagmus, tremors and speech defects. He died at the age of 6.
- The day following their vaccination, Albert and Andrew’s health deteriorated, and they were eventually diagnosed with “Metachromatic Leukodystrophy Type” (a disease related to the nervous system). Andrew died shortly thereafter.
- Dallas’ story – My oldest son, Dallas was 14 months old when he developed a neurological tic and eye problems, related to vaccines. After taking him to dozens of doctors I got no diagnoses. All the neurologist told me they had never seen this before. He is 29 years old and still has this tic and very bad eyesight and severe headaches.
- Julia’s story – 12 months old – MMR-V and Hepatitis B – unconscious for 10 days, was diagnosed with encephalitis. Severe temporal sclerosis over the right side of her brain. More areas of “less” severe injury in both frontal lobes of her brain. When she left, she was severely left sided hemiplegic, was aspirating food unless thickened, was unable to sit up or roll over, was nonverbal, and screamed and cried 22 out of 24 hours a day. Back again to not sleeping for over three years.
- Carolyn’s story – Carolyn was was once a major her her town. She was vaccinated for tetanus, Hepatitis A and B, and typhoid. Two days later she was left with debilitating brain damage, paralyzed and unable to speak (except she can manage a yes and no at times). Her husband received a $74 million settlement.
- Angelica’s story – Angelica was 3 months old when she developed life-threatening seizures and brain damage just three days after getting several vaccinations. She was diagnosed with with brain injury or encephalitis. And in 2006, the little-known federal “vaccine court” agreed, awarding Angelica nearly $2 million plus about $250,000 a year for medical expenses for the rest of her life. Today, Angelica is 14 and profoundly disabled. She has cerebral palsy and a seizure disorder. She is unable to speak. She uses a feeding tube and a wheelchair. Because she requires around-the-clock attention, her parents quit their jobs to care for her.
- Jodie’s story – when Jodie was 14 months old, she illegally received 8 vaccines in one injection (her parents refused DTap and any others, but it was given to her anyway, in addition to MMR). “Within minutes after Jodie was vaccinated, she started shivering and shaking, was taken home, had high-pitched screams, suffered a high fever and stopped eating right away. Her parents were told by the doctor that she had a virus and not to worry. This was the day she was left permanently disabled and would never again be her normal self.” She needed around the clock care and she was also diagnosed with autism. She has convolusions and is disabled for life.

Vaccine injury: Severely disabled
- Eric’s story – 6 months old – DPT vaccine – within a few days started having up to 80 seizures a day. At 20 years old, he is severely disabled.
- “…A dear friend would take back her personal decision to vaccinate in a heartbeat if it could bring her son back to her. As a healthy and energetic toddler of nearly two years old who was walking and running, he was vaccinated for MMR and within 24 hours had begun stumbling and falling over. Within a week he was unable to move and was confined to a wheelchair. He died prematurely as a young teenager. His mother is firm and unmoveable in her belief that it was the vaccine that caused the damage.” – Source (see What a Gem’s comment)
- “Once upon a time, i was all for vaccines too….until the unthinkable happened. My baby with no history of seizures…has a routine well-visit a few days after celebrating her 1st birthday….receives several vaccines…one being the chicken pox shot (a LIVE virus)….suddenly becomes spaced-out and lethargic…before falling over with seizures. Seizures that were so bad…that the neurologists said, they “could not pinpoint which part of the brain the seizures were coming from…that it was like bombs going off all over the brain.” Her brain was literally on fire. Now she is developmentally disabled. She has come far…very, very far….but she is now 5…and still wears diapers…she just recently began to drink from a straw…she cannot dress herself… is non-verbal…and seizures are not fun. I will not choose to vaccinate either of my children ever again…the thought of the possibility of my other child having an adverse reaction scares the crap out of me…and i simply cannot risk having another disabled child. Someone once said to me…”Yeah, but…she needed the chicken pox shot to protect her from getting the disease!”…and all i could think was…Really?…a disease that i and many kids i knew had growing up and we are all still here to talk about it today? I am sorry…but when this happens to you, your view changes. My daughter not only had too many shots in such a short period of time…but she reacted very badly to the vaccine with 1 live virus…i dont even want to think about what would have happened had she received an MMR which has 3 live viruses.”
- A man wanted to enter the hospital to see his newly born child. The hospital demanded he take a whooping cough vaccine before entering. Full paralysis of all 4 limbs immediately following the vaccination. He is now a quadripeligic. See news story here.

Vaccine injury: Encephalopathy
- Nichole’s Recovery – “Nichole was born on September 7, 2006 and at four months old, I took her to the health clinic to get her vaccinations, my whole life turned upside down. Nichole had acute reactions to the DTP vaccine. The DPT vaccine has been linked to brain damage, neurological damage, sudden infant death syndrome, and death. Nichole reactions 30 mins. of receiving the DPT vaccine were: she became lethargic, she was drooling excessively, and her whole body started shaking in my arms, which I found out later, Nichole was having seizures…. Her diagnosis include encephalopathy of unknown etiology with microcephaly, cortical visual impairment, GERD, global delay, spastic tera paresis, and failure to thrive with g-tube placement.

Vaccine injury: Autism Spectrum Disorder
1 in 100 vaccinated children are diagnosed with autism
Only 1 in 10,000 children in an unvaccinated Amish population in northeastern Ohio is diagnosed with autism.
Scientific research linking vaccinations with autism spectrum disorder here.
A scientific paper “Theoretical aspects of autism: causes — a review” states that “Documented causes of autism include genetic mutations and/or deletions, viral infections, and encephalitis [brain damage] following vaccination [emphasis added]. Therefore, autism is the result of genetic defects and/or inflammation of the brain.” Read the abstract to Ratajczak’s paper here and a CBS news article about the paper here.
Read over 1,000 vaccine injury stories submitted by parents at the “Following Vaccinations” website here. Most of the adverse reactions following vaccinations reported by parents on this website is autism spectrum disorder.

- Eve’s story – 20 months old – “Eve received her fourth DT DTP vaccine, her fourth Prevnar vaccine, her third polio vaccine, and her first MMR at the same time. This occurred within days of ending another round of antibiotics. Although we can never prove it because we didn’t go to the hospital that night, nor were the proper tests done the following day, the description of what Eve experienced that night is identical with a condition called “encephalopathy”. That’s a fancy word for brain inflammation and swelling. A high-pitched scream, an arched back, and neurological damage afterwards are a textbook description of the condition….” Eve was eventually diagnosed with autism. “March 27, 2001, I brought a healthy, beautiful, vibrant baby into this world. Over the next 18 months she got sicker and sicker, all the while no one doing anything to make her better, and on November 15, 2002, the daughter I once had…the child she was meant to be, basically died. The baby girl I had given birth to was gone, but not.”

She never progressed to constructing sentences even when her peers were already speaking well. She started having outrageous tantrums, meltdowns and horrible mood swings. She was eventually diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. Two years later, with aggressive biomedical DAN! treatment, she is recovered.

Vaccine injury: Attention Deficit Disorder
Vaccine injury: Tourette’s Syndrome
- Brandon’s story – 15 months old – Tetanus, Oral Trivalent Polio, Hib Type B, MMR vaccines
Vaccine injury: Hodgkin’s Disease
Dr. Robert Mendelsohn’s book, How to Raise a Healthy Child, states that he has observed Hodgkin disease develop after the MMR vaccine.
- Alexis’ story – 21 days after receiving the DTP shot, she came down with the following symptoms: lethargy; fever; loss of appetite; excessive sleeping. Shortly after MMR shot, she developed vaccine-induced Hodgkin’s Disease. Alexis died when she was 17 years old.
Vaccine injury: Juvenile Diabetes
Another chronic autoimmune disorder that is on the increase in multiple vaccine recipients is juvenile type 1 diabetes. In New Zealand, there was a 60% increase in juvenile diabetes following a massive hepatitis B vaccination program for newborns. In Finland the incidence of juvenile diabetes increased 147% in children under five after the introduction of three new vaccines for children in the late 1970s. Then, in the late 1980s, addition of a live MMR vaccine and an experimental vaccine (Hib) resulted in another 62% increase in the incidence of juvenile diabetes in children 3 months or older who received the new multiple vaccines (source).

Vaccine injury: Increase of infections
- Cathy’s daughter’s story – double ear infection, bronchitis
- Grayson’s story – 12 month vaccinations – “Grayson reacted to his 12 month vaccinations for an entire month, non-stop. Doctors really had the gall to tell me that each of these incidents was unrelated to one another and/or the vaccinations. He was tested for diseases such as EBV, Lyme, arthritis and even leukemia. I’m sorry, but 4 live viruses should never have been injected into my baby in one sitting and I have since learned that he probably never handled his vaccinations well, because as I look back on pictures, I see one of his eyes turned in slightly, his lip not quite in line symmetrically with the other side and as we progressed through his vaccination schedule, his personality changed. He changed.”
- Theo – five months old – (a friend’s son) developed pneumonia and an ear infection after receiving the pneumococcal vaccine.

Vaccine Injury: Eczema
- Several stories of children who developed eczema after vaccinations.
- 5 1/2 month old baby – developed eczema after Prevnar 13 vaccination.
Vaccine Injury: Asthma
When researchers in New Zealand compared the rates of asthma in children that did not receive multiple vaccinations to rates in children receiving multiple vaccinations, those children who did not receive the vaccines did not present with asthma; whereas 23% of children receiving multiple vaccines had to have asthma consultations and 30% had consultations for other allergic illnesses (source).
- A child with Hyper IgE syndrome “became sick at 2 months of age, which is immediately after his first whooping cough vaccine. I can’t prove that was a cause, but I strongly suspect it exasperated his problems. We gave him a whooping cough booster two years ago, and 24 hours later he became unbelievably sick. His asthma was out of control, he could not get out of bed and his skin flared all over. It took a lot of careful homeopathy to get him through that. If it weren’t for the homeopathy, he would have been in the hospital.”

- “My daughter had her shots in 2009. Before all this happened, she was a normal girl with a normal life. She was healthy and led a completely normal life for a teenager. She has had injuries ever since the first shot. In the beginning we didn´t know it was the HPV vaccine causing her headaches, nausea, stomach aches and so on. As time went by, it only got worce, and no one seemed to be able to tell us what was wrong. Not untill she had fainted a couple of times. A friend, who is also a nurse, asked me if she had had the HPV vaccine, and told me to look it up on the internet. I went home and googled “injuries from Gardasil” I was thrown over by all the videoes and post from all over the world. It was so sad to see. I immediatly knew, that this is what is happening to my girl. There was not any doubt in my mind. Still she got worce for each time she fainted, wich happened on an average of once a month. It was just for a few seconds each time, but afterwards, she couldn´t do anything but stay in her bed for 2-3 weeks. We stoped going to the hospital everytime it happened, because no one would listen. I have yelled and argued with so many doctors on so many occasions, but nothing helped.” – Watch video here.

HEPATITIS B VACCINE INJURIES
- Scientific studies that document the hazards of the Hepatitis B vaccine, including vision loss, hearing loss and various ailments.
- Eight stories, with reactions that include chronic fatigue syndrome, arthritis, bedridden, wheel-chair bound, mononucleosis
- “”The FDA also received over 2,400 adverse event reports for hepatitis-B vaccine in children in that same time frame, culminating in death, hospitalization, or prolonged disability. Add the reports for adults and the number swells to 27,000 serious reactions to the vaccine. With all camps in this debate in agreement that ten percent or fewer of adverse events ever get reported, this means that the vaccine may kill or disable thousands more than the disease itself.” Read full article here.
Failure to thrive and prone to infections
- “I am the mother of a vaccine-injured child. My daughter is 17, so she is soon to be a vaccine-injured adult.For the last 17 years I have watched my daughter’s health evaporate as if into thin air. As an infant, she was slow to gain weight and was diagnosed with “failure-to-thrive.” She was intolerant of milk, had mysterious rashes and “fevers of unknown origin.” She was very prone to ear infections and had two sets of tubes placed in her ears.” Read her entire open letter here.

- Vaccine manufacturers have paid out nearly $2 billion in damages to parents in the US. In all, around 2,000 parents have received compensation payments that average $850,000. Sadly, since the Vaccine Injury Compensation Payment (VICP) have not awarded settlements to any parents of children with autism because they refuse to recognize any link between vaccinations and autism (Source: New England Journal of Medicine, 2007; 357: 1275-9).
