Carola Pagan I remember my son was 4 trying to enter pre-k and the school required up to date vaccines among them MMR. After that set of vaccinations I saw a turning point in my son's behavior. I have always linked ASD to that set of vaccines in his life.
Alison Palmer My little boy Harry poorly for 3 weeks after MMR. Inconsolable, temp bit of measles rash etc. He also stopped eating. He has never eaten well since. A Dietician pointed out the connection when plotting his weight on graph. He was diagnosed with Autism Dec 09 I hope this information is useful. He never fitted or anything but just couldn't get over the vaccination. His eating coninues to be a major problem. He has suffered with constipation since birth and has been on Movicol since 13 months. He continues on it and Medics say he will grow out of it! Regards Runcorn, near Liverpool.

Cynthia Parker My daughter, Cecily Georgiana Parker, was born at Capital Region Hospital in Jefferson City, Missouri, on May 5, 2000. I had gone to her pediatrician, Douglas Boudreau, a month ahead of time to ask that she not be given the hep-B vaccine at birth, and he agreed. But he forgot to tell the staff at the hospital, and they gave it to her when she was one day old. From the time I took her home at three days old, she screamed constantly, day and night, all night every night, her first week. (only eight or nine hours a day after that, until she was nine weeks old.) I rocked her in a rocking chair all night every night waiting for her to stop crying, but she never did, until a few hours around dawn, when she'd fall into an exhausted sleep, then wake and start up again. We told the doctor, it was too early for colic, but he didn't know what to think. I'm sure it was vaccine-induced encephalitis, and she was diagnosed with autism before she was two years old. She's nearly eleven now, I've worked with her and home-schooled her every day for years, she's considered high-functioning, but she is significantly impaired in her language and social skills, is developmentally like a four-year old, and has learning disabilities. I don't know if she'll ever be independent. She goes to public school (Mill Creek, Columbia, Missouri) four days a week, where she has a para with her. She would like to have friends, but has none.
Elizabeth Parker K received her 4 month vaccines at 14 weeks of age; they included the DTaP, HBV, Hib, and IPV. She went home screaming, passed-out and slept way too long, woke up with legs that flopped to the table at diaper change, lost interest in eating, lost interest in smiling and looking us in the eye, began squealing like a dolphin, started staring at her hands in front of her eyes for extended periods of time, and by the ninth day started shrieking in a non-stop high-pitched wail and did not stop for six hours, the hospital disregarded our concern this was listed as a severe adverse event and sent us home with Amoxil and Tylenol. For the next three years, she was often violently unhappy for hours at a time, had non-stop putrid diarrhea, was a risk to herself and others, could not sleep, did not want to be touched or held unexpectedly, did not develop language, was diagnosed retarded, non-verbal and in-educable. From her second birthday, we stopped vaccinating and embarked on gluten-, casein-, soy-, corn-free, organic diet, eliminated all chemicals, purified her air and water, added myriad nutritional supplements, enzymes, and probiotics, and pursued intensive positive behavioral, language-based interventions; she is now toilet trained, fully verbal, academically age-level and working to catch-up her other domains. She recently turned 13, she is diagnosed with frontal and temporal lobe epilepsy, hippocampal sclerosis, hypotonia, mitochondrial dysfunction, antibodies to her myelin, gi dysfunction, global developmental delay, failure to thrive, severe autism, and other diagnosis’. To-date, we have invested $1.7M into her effort to overcome these diagnosis’ and she has spent over 17,000 hours participating in intensive therapies; we have sacrificed our future to assure she can have an independent one. Titusville, FL
Kimberly Parker My son Quenton is 12 now and has been diagnosed with mild to moderate autism spectrum disorder. We are in Englewood Colorado USA he received his MMR in May of 2000 and quit speaking for about a little over a year, and of course this is when his autististic attributes kicked in.
Chris Parsley I am the parent of a vaccine damaged child. I know my children, I know every face they make. I know when they are mad, I know when they are happy, I know when they are sad. I know when something is wrong. I know my children. I watched my child change the very day he received nine vaccinations in one day (which I was told was perfectly safe). I watched this once playful, giggling, happy, child with a curiosity for life change the day he received his vaccinations, never to be the same again. I have raised five children and this boy was the happiest, easiest child I ever raised at least as a baby. He was always happy, always smiling, always played with his favorite toys with childish eagerness. The day he received nine vaccinations, including MMR, this all changed. Within hours of the injection, both legs at the injection sights swollen up like baseballs and turned bright red. He ran a fever, he cried for six days straight only stopping to sleep when too tired to cry any longer. He was inconsolable. We walked in circles in our living room at all hours of the day and night, rocking him. He grew distant, irritated, irrational, and aggressive. Toys he once played with for hours on end, sat untouched, forevermore. As time went on, this was our new “normal”? by the age of three he had been kicked out of every daycare he attended and was diagnosed as PDD-NOS with a verbal of possible bi-polar. I love this child more than anything in life and I will always be there for him. If I could go back to that day he had his vaccinations and not have them done, I would give anything. This is not the way his life was supposed to be. This is was vaccinations did to my child. I watched it happen right in front of my eyes. He is six now and through diet, supplements, enzymes, holistic meds, behavioral modifications, etc… we are beginning to get our child back. It is a long hard road and very costly in every way. I am 100 percent, without a question in my mind, that vaccinations did this to my child. This is the face of autism and the face of vaccinations for those who react to them. Something is seriously wrong with our society to allow this to happen, and if something does not change… twenty years from now all children will be in the autism spectrum and this will be society’s new “normal”. Wake up America! Midland Texas. My story actually continues… This child is my great nephew. We have had him since he was about ten days old. He was behind on his vaccinations because we did not believe in them in the first place. However, he was an award of the state for the first three years while we were fighting to adopt. CPS forced us to get him current on vaccinations at the last minute or we would have risked losing the adoption. Moving forward to present day, we now have his twin three year old brothers as foster children and will probably adopt as well, that is depending on how the court case goes with the bio-parents. We have had these two boys now for about nine months. Once again CPS mandated these guys get current on their TB shots. Reluctantly we did so, once again they are award of the state and we are just the caregivers at this point. Once again, we had reactions. These two guys were happy and completely well the day we took them in. Within hours of the TB injection one of them was acting as if he was sick. Within 24 hours he had a fever and was coughing. Within 36 hours he was admitted to the hospital with respiratory failure. By this time the other twin was following suit with the same symptoms. In speaking with no less than 15 medical professionals about this being a reaction to the TB shot, not one admitted it was possible. Actually quite the opposite, they looked at me like I was crazy. With hard work and some due diligence, I found a clinical report in the Annuals of Asthma 1995 edition volume 95 that linked respiratory failure in some, as a reaction to the Twain-80 (AKA - Polysorbate-80 found in almost all injections) as a contributing factor. I took this information to the children’s primary medical doctor and forced him to place it in their records that this was in fact a reaction to the Twain-80 used in the suspension agent. He was very reluctant to put this in writing, but I had to play the foster card. I told him if it was in fact a reaction and these guys in up in a different home where they might possibly receive this again and it kills them. I would hold him personally responsible and that I have documented my findings as such. He finally conceded and put a written note in their files that this was a reaction. Looking back at this, These little guys had issues right from birth with what was called “Asthma”. They were on breathing treatment for the first few years of life. They went for a couple of years, until this happened, then they ended up back on breathing treatments again after this. I makes total since that the vaccinations at birth and the months following cause the initial asthma issues and now again after this injection. Yet… the doctors in all their wisdom cannot see this. I have lost much respect for the medical profession over the years.
Alica Parsons Hi, my son Dane is the youngest of 4 kids all born within 37 months of each other. He was also the only child that I had group B strep with and had to be given 2 rounds of antibiotics directly before his birth by c section. He had a reaction to an MMR vaccine around 2 years old. His leg swelled and he developed a fever for a few days followed by a month of intense regression, screaming inboain at night, etc. In addition his bowel movements turned white. His pediatrician did nothing except tell me he had a virus and not to feed him milk. His injury occurred in Waco,Texas in 2005.
Michelle Pateman mother of Billy, now 5 yrs. -- MMR! Administered in Burnham, Buckinghamshire. Billy born 10 weeks prem, spent 6 weeks in intensive care, however met all milestones, at 8 month developmental check, consultant said he was as developed as a 10 month old!!! He regressed shortly after the shot, within a few weeks, withdrawn and isolated, did not notice other children, eye contact ceased, vacant and masked expression, cognitive impairment evident, refused most foods, continuous spinning of objects or spinning himself, began to line objects up, ran up and down consistently, became tactile defensive, stopped smiling and laughing, was unable to focus on anything, stopped pointing, began to flap arms, stopped answering to his name, continuous colds, glue ear, bowel problems, any language he had ceased, became easily agitated, there is probably more. Today, following consultation, investigation and treatment from The Autism Clinic my son is a different child, gone is the glue ear and bowel problems, he is affectionate, tactile, asks for a cuddle regularly, language is improving weekly although he has a lot of echolalia language and he still struggles with reciprocal language, but this is slowly emerging, he responds when other children say hello to him, he plays with other children, stimming is greatly reduced, no spinning or continuous running, but he flaps his arms when he is excited or happy, he manages to take a more varied diet, he is totally toilet trained during the day and at night, no more nappies, he eats with a spoon and a fork, he is active and boisterous, he manages to express his wants/needs adequately, however, he still experiences anxiety and can be a handful in a supermarket, on holiday or in an environment he doesn't want to be in. He will be attending a mainstream school with a full educational statement of needs, he loves books, Disney films and animals and recently had his first ride on a horse, he is a happy, loving, contented boy, we still have a long way to go and many challenges to face but the despair we felt this time two years ago is gone. He says "I LOVE YOU MUMMY!!!". That made my life! Sorry it's more than you asked but I got totally carried away. Windsor, UK.
Sheila Patnode After my son recieved 6 vaccines at once when he was a year old, my son completely changed. He used to talk and now he doesn't even say 1 word. He used to play appropriately with toys, now he doesn't play with them at all. He now prefers stimming and making unusual sounds. He used to make eye contact and now with do it only once and a while when he chooses. He used to be very calm and now he is extremely full of anxiety. His behaviors are very impulsive, obessesive and compulsive. He never sleeps anymore unless he is medicated. It's as if the "normal", healthy, happy son I had was walking along the road and without warning fell off of a cliff and fell into Autism never to be seen again. He is now 9 years old and his vaccines were given to him in Port St Lucie, Florida. Please feel free to email me if you need anymore info.
Jessica Patterson mmr vaccine, he went from speaking to only grinding his teeth w/in 2 weeks. Right now, he is still non-verbal, has SIBs, ADHD and possible mental retardation. He went from "typical" (I hate to use that word) to severe end of the spectrum.
Katie Coles Patterson GRACIE ELOISE, MMR SHOT, GOT A RASH THAT WAS UNEXPLAINED, DIAGNOSED AT AGE 3, LAGRANDE OREGON.
Shannon Patterson Pensacola FL. Aidan was 5mos old. He had just started to mama and coo and form sounds. He recieved DTaP,IPV,HiB and Hep B in a Comvax Inj. And Prevnar. He screamed horribly on one them.. Like he'd been burned. He ran a fever throughout the afternoon into the nt. He lost all verbal and most social. He is now 7. Pretty hf and an angel. He now can speak in 5 to 10 word sentences.
Chris Pasley I too have a vaccine injured child. The first signs came about four hours after his four month old vaccination schedule. Our once happy, cheerful, giggling child changed that day. He became distant, inconsolable, ill-tempered, never to be the same again. I have had people tell me that the change I saw in my child did not happen. My answer to this is I know my child like more parents do, I know every facial expression he makes and what it means. I know when he is happy, I know when he is sad, I know when he does not feel good, and I know my child! I know without any shadow of a doubt vaccines caused the issues he lives with today. I too have a website devoted to this subject with a focus on these same testimonials of parents who have seen adverse reactions to the toxic chemicals. My website is www.kodawe.com and I would invite you to place your testimonial there as well. The more people gathering this information the more lives we touch.
David Pawelek My friends wife had a violent miscariage before christmas last year. The baby was due at the end of January and everything was going well until she went to the hospital to have an injection to stop mums blood from affecting the baby if any problems should arise. I did not know this at the time otherwise I would have said something but I think it was the injection. Bedfordshire, UK
Martha Codi Payne My oldest son was a little late receiving his vaccines at 18 months and the doctors decided to "catch up" and give them to him all at once. In all, there were 7-8 vaccines, combined into 5 shots. I was nervous, as I had a vague knowledge of the dangers of vaccinations, but figured the doctors knew what was best. We took my son home and he began running a very high fever that alarmed me. The very next day, we took him back to the doctor, the fever was still very high. I was told it was normal and to give it a few days. My son is now 2 1/2 and has almost halted intelligent development from that point. He is displaying symptoms of autism. Before then, he was a normal, if not slightly advanced, toddler. I can literally pinpoint the halted development to when he received his vaccines. From now on, I am choosing to discontinue vaccinations. I have my oldest son in speech therapy, which has helped very little. I am praying for a recovery. Wichita KS
Elizabeth Paz MMR at 6 months the next day he couldnt even sit up. The baby noises he made cesased. Shot was given in chula vista ca i never gave him another shot he also reacted to respidal went into a diabetic dormat state he thereafter they said he was mentally retarded adhd n autistic to put him in a group home. I refused he is twelve now fully verbal potty trained he plays bb and soccer no meds
Amanda Minor Peacock What makes me the maddest is
that I am not alone on this earth when I say the Vaccines made my son autistic.
What I don’t understand is why no one is being held accountable for what the
Vaccines are doing. I had a beautiful happy normal baby boy until he got his
around a year old. I can positively say he had almost immediate reactions. He
was cranky and withdrawn and stopped trying to talk, he stopped even babbling
and started to seem like he was looking over your head. He was physically there
but mentally he was somewhere far far away. My son is awesome but some days I
get so frustrated that there is nothing being done about vaccines.
Jamie Pease My son stopped rolling over, babbling, crawling at age 7mo after a vaccine, also within 24hrs he was covered from head to toe with extremely severe eczema, he is 2 1/2 now and still doesnt talk, and we are still battling the eczema. The shots he got were DTaP, HIB, HepB, PCV7, Rotavirus, and Influenza. Grand Rapids Michigan
Susie Pellum My son at age 21 years got a hep A vaccine (Chandler, AZ). Within 24 hours his personality changed from an easy going guy to an angry belligerent withdrawn person. His health declined and he was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. In 1954 my 2 y...ear old brother was revaccinated because the doctor 'lost' the records and insisted he needed them. He suddenly started having violent outbursts, which my mom knew were due to the vaccines. Eventually they discovered he was having silent seizures. Doctors denied any link to the vaccines. Things haven't changed much (except that he had 'only' eight vaccines instead of the horrendous number babies get today).
Wendy Pentelow I believe our son, now 20, was vaccine damaged. Had usual childhood vaccines in 1992 and at about 17 months this included Hib. Within 8 days of having these vaccines he had febrile convulsions and was never quite the same again. He has Aspergers , OCD and associated anxiety. Surrey, UK
Alex Percival Mother saw regression into autism following MMR, now age 18 years. (Suffolk).
Sam Pereira My son (born in 2005) received the standard new-born vaccines at 8 weeks, 12 weeks and 16 weeks; within 48 hours of receiving his 12 week immunisations (i.e. 2nd set) he developed severe, infected eczema, all over his body. It was worst on his scalp where he developed open, pus-filled sores, and he also had itchy patches inside his elbow and knee joints, which he scratched until they bled. A health visitor subsequently diagnosed eczema and prescribed steroid creams. After the 16 week ones, the eczema cleared slightly but he then developed a chest infection, swiftly followed by rotavirus, conjunctivitis, bronchiolitis, tonsillitis then hand, foot and mouth disease. Over the course of his first year he suffered 2 further bouts of gastroenteritis, as well as at least 3 significant chest infections, 2 ear infections and a constant cold. He also had severe reflux until the age of 2, frequently vomiting many times a day, more chest infections and more tonsillitis. At age 4 he was also diagnosed with hay fever but thankfully now at age 8, after a great deal of homeopathic, nutritional and cranial treatment, he is healthy most of the time, although he still sometimes suffers with hay fever, eczema-like patches of dry skin and a chesty cough. My unvaxed daughter (age 5) has, unsurprisingly, never had eczema, hay fever or a chronic cough, and was not ill as a baby or toddler. (UK)
Tania Pereira I live In Pakistan. My son was absolutely normal till the age of 18 months, but after his MMR shot, we saw changes in him, he was like altogether a different person :( He was a friendly child who always posed in front of the camera, loved playing with his siblings, after a month when he took the MMR vaccine, he never smiled, wanted to be left alone all the time, stopped responding to his name etc. He turns 5 today!!!
Kim Perez-Diaz My daughter was a happy typical child. very very intelligent and progressed in her development faster than kids her age. She had the MMR shot when she was 12 months in Havelock NC. she ran a high fever that day and night which landed us in the Er. The following day my lil girl was gone. No expression on her face nor a smile. She lost all the words she spoke and just stood in a room and stared. She hated water being on her. She hated being touched by anyone but me. She flapped her hands and twindled her fingers together and started having seizures. At 18 months she had the Another shot and developed a sleeping disorder only sleeps 3 hrs a night. I moved back home to fl and docs found out she had an allergic reaction to shots. The preservatives in them.
Keighley Marie Perry Son had MMR at 13 months, and by 15 months had lost speech, eye contact and became distressed at being held. Was diagnosed at age 2 years with severe autism, non-verbal, with possible learning difficulties. He is now very “hyper”, is still incontinent, and needs constant supervision. (Sheffield)
Susan Lynn Perry My son regressed after his MMR shot in 2004 in San Antonio, TX
Olivia Perryman As an Australian mum, I would just like to say none of my kids have been vaccinated from birth and proud of that!!! By the way, I would like to say I was vaccinated when I was pregnant with my first child (now 11). He was diagnosed with Autism at 4 years old. Any further information you may wish for please just ask! (think its great your doing this, but, what about the mum's who got vaccinated when pregnant?)
Kelly A Peters Jack Q. Born April 2004 in Yonkers, NY. I had rhogam shot, was Strep B carrier so he got antibiotics in utero, induced with Pitocin, and received two doses of Stadol during labor and I had an epidural. Swimming in toxic soup before he took a breath. Heb B a few hours into the world. He started projectile vomiting and the Ped told me to switch to soy. He had thrush, numerous bronchial episodes, and these strange sores that would just appear. Numerous rounds of antibiotics. Expressed concern about EVERYTHING including autism to the Ped and he chaled it up to Nervous Mother, but still the language wasn’t coming. I had no idea until after Dx that shots COULD be cause. I vaccinated on schedule. Trust the doctors. Boy, was I wrong. Diagnosed officially PDD-NOS April 2008. Sweet, funny, intelligent boy. Struggles with expressive language. Echolalic, lots of movie scripting. No concept of danger. Suffers with GI and digestive issues, malabsorption, detox issues, and a bunch of food sensitivities including gluten, casein, and soy. He is also riddles with candida yeast. He is the love of my life and we work toward recovery every day. Owen Q. Born May 2006 in Yonkers, NY. Same cocktail during pregnancy/labor except no Stadol. Vaccinated up to his 1.5 year shots, when I heard of potential link. Got his official Dx April 2009. Suffers from same medical issues, but is much more verbal and expressive. He does however, have ADHD in addition to his PDD NOS. He is the other love of my life J I am a single mom and I have made my life about doing everything I can for their recovery. They deserve a better life that government and mainstream medicine think they do. Hope. Recovery is Possible
Laura Pettipas We moved from toronto to the bruce peninsula when ken was 6 mo old,they lost our records so ken got double dosed for that mmr,if only we had known ah it breaks my heart. One day a very bright infant, the shot, and then no eye contact,ect.and a diagnosis of autism. Ont, Canada.
Daphne Phillips My son Matthew had his MMR at twelve month old ,that very same night we were in the E.R. with him, he broke out in a rash and his eye were swollen shut, after that night he stopped talking ,he is 10 now and is a high functioning Autistic with a very low immune system!
Pepita Picasso About 2 weeks after MMR my son had fever of 104 for 3 days. Lori Rothstein De Luca. Both my son, 6 and daughter, 4 exactly 1 week after 1 yr MMR's got very sick with 106 fever, lethargy, loss of appetite. After that they had GI issues, sleep problems and behavioural issues. My son after his 4 yr MMR and flu shot lost eye contact, had sensory issues and began to stim. My son has autism and my daughter has ADHD and some PDD type behaviours. We are also using biomedical therapies and diet and have made great progress. I also have a 3 y/o boy who has not received the MMR and is fine developmentally but had developed some gut issues following a rotavirus vaccine at 6 mos. He is also treated with diet. San Antonio, TX
Joanna Rachael Pillin My son is 12 now and had the MMR when he was 18 months old! His arm really swelled but that was it! Up untill the MMR he was very forward and and easy going little boy! By the age of 2 and half he was a real handfull and I found myself comp...aring him to other children his age! That's when I knew something was wrong! He was diagonsed age 9 with ASD! I don't know if the MMR had anything to do with it but at the time he had it it was all in the news about autism and vaccine! I remember telling my mum my fears about givin it to him she said jo he has more chance or getting measles than he does autism! It just seems all a bit to close when I think about the change in my son! He had the MMR in peterborough england!
Sylvia Pimentel Both of my children are vaccine injured, and went on to be diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder. Joseph Pimentel, born 3-19-95 and Nicholas Pimentel, born 2-10-98 We were told the severe reactions after each set of shots were normal. And that the resulting developmental regressions were coincidental. Later we had doctors confirm that they were vaccine injured and that their pediatrcians at the time ignored the red flags that could have lessened the damage. Granite Bay, California
Gina Piotrowiak No question about it.. taylor regressed after MMR and other injections. She had awful bouts of constipation & diarrhea and was even hospitalized. She became a sickly child for many years , always at doctor and never really treated. The Drs would say "it is just part of autism" both my children were born and vaccinated in Norfolk Virgina at Pediatric Associates. Taylor never received any vaccinations after the MMR. My Son , Antoni, has Aspergers. He is High functioning, Honor Roll, intelligent but has social awkardness and Oppositional Defiant disorder. Antoni never received any vaccinations since age 6 My daughter is severly affected by autism. she is non verbal , behavioral issues, and has been seeing Dr. Julie Buckley for the last 3 years.. we were doing really well with DAN protocol until puberty hit at 10 1/2 year old and it has been a rollercoster since. Last year we rented a hyperbaric chamber for 2 months and saw great improvements.. even language such as mama, daddy, nana, papa and SPONGEBOB.. This year we purchased an oxyhealth chamber in hopes of obtaining long lasting positive results. Another thing i was wondering about is : I was in the Navy and My husband a Marine. We both had mutiple injections during bootcamp.. then I had another series of injections before going overseas to Desert Storm. My Husband had another Series of injections when he was stationed in Japan and then another series a few years later when he went on a float. Has there been any studies of military families( or those who served) with autism against the general public with children with autism...
Jessica Plautz I've always been on the fence about vaccines, I felt I was making the wrong decision no matter what I did, but when I became pregnant in 2009 and the whole H1N1 thing broke out, I was scared and took the vaccine while pregnant. It seemed odd to me how QUICKLY that vaccine came out after the disease, considering they say they test vaccines for 7 years etc etc. But I got it. My son was born and seemed normal until about 6 months old when he just wasnt progressing AT ALL. He has several issues now at 15 months and we still haven't been given ANY answers as to what is 'wrong' with him. He barely crawls, he doesn’t walk, barely plays with toys, barely looks at people, and can only eat stage 2 jar food without vomiting severely. It's very sad and I always beat myself up for going against what I believed in and getting that flu shot. He hasnt been vaccinated since. West Bend, WI USA
Julie Clymer Plettner Tucson Az two days old hep b horrible jaundice and born three weeks early I had gestation diabetes and hypo thyroid. St Pete FL 12 months MMR two ear infections two rounds of antibiotics strange red hives doctor said it was viral same doctor... gave every vaccine needed to start kindergarten. 12-18 months eight ear infections treated with antibiotics 16 months another red hive breakout told it was viral 17 months spiked fever 104-105 rushed to ACH told it was viral. Loss of speech chronic loose bowel movements toe walking sleeping a lot hard to fall asleep at night grinding teeth stimming loss of eye contact tantrums unable to play with toys aggressive. Four years of age: Neuro therapies gfcfsfcf diet supplements number one neuroprotek normal stools social starting to speak engaging in play happy no tantrums nurturing affectionate referencing she is on her way to recovery Oh forgot May 7 2009 diagnosed USF ADOS moderate autism one year to the day she was rushed in ambulance with high fever... And three days before Mothers Day. Last Sunday she said I Love You to me for the first time worth all the money we have spent kisses and hugs started in January it is surreal. It appears my daughter has PANDAS but she can't take penicillin because her medical records show she is allergic. Last week we went to an allergist he didn’t have all the medical record and asked me questions come to find out she didn't break out in hives from penicillin it was from the MMR dtap hepb flu shot and the list goes on al at twelve months! Strange that in a roundabout way I find out my daughter had vaccine injury not an allergic reaction to penicillin.
Lisa Pollit Received MMR as a toddler and MMR booster pre-school but then contracted mumps and died age 4 years (Manchester).
Angela Pondexter I have three vaccine injured children. My son Christopher (ASD) lost the ability to nurse after the hep B shot. We wrote this off as other issues and continued to vax with reassurance from our pediatrician. At 18 months, he began having behavior problems and aggression with tantrums which were dismissed as concerns about our newborns arrival. After the next set of vaccines, he became purely echoalic (he was verbally advanced prior) and started smearing poop. We began to investigate getting him a diagnosis as his behaviors worsened and we were scheduled for an eval. During this same year, my little guy was behind on ped visits and they tried to vax him with 6 shots in one day. We refused and agreed to just one DTAP shot thinking that the "problem" was the overloaded schedule. My baby then developed Pytosis (later ASD). At this same time of all of this chaos, my daughter who was 12 was given a second round of Gardasil and slept through her 7th and 8th grade years of school. She developed horrible IBS, sadly went from all A's to a C average, and participated in very little. She also suffered with migraine headaches, body aches, and rashes. We will never again vaccinate under ANY circumstances. All of our children are doing much better with supplements, calm and restful atmosphere (we are now home schoolers and place very little demand on our kids) ,clean food with special diet, and toxins removed from our home. My son Chris is no longer echoalic and no longer smears poop. It would be hard to give him a dx at this point. My little guy no longer bangs his head, can climb and jump, and continues to make improvements with communication. I have never seen his eyes so much as I have seen them in June 2011. They play at the YMCA 3 times per week without issue or aide. My daughter excels in home school, just became a lifeguard, learned to sew, has a job, and lost 25 pounds in a fitness program at our YMCA. Vaccines have altered my children's lives as well as mine and my husband. We have a long way to go for total recovery, but we will never stop trying. New Jersey
Lisa Poole My son was born normal, developed normal and had lots of life and language until he was about two years old, when he slowly regressed into severe, nonverbal autism. He had all the vaccines recommended the year he was born (1993) through 15 months of age. After he regressed, he was unable to speak, he was sickly, had constant diarrhea, had frequent tantrums, could no longer tolerate human touch or loud sounds or bright lights, did not sleep well, and could not learn easily. Later he developed a seizure disorder. He also became self-injurious due to the tremendous pain associated with reflux and irritable bowel. He is now almost 18, still nonverbal, but with much intervention and diet his gut has healed, he feels better and is able to learn. As bright as that sounds, he will always be disabled and dependent on others for his daily care and living. Silverdale, WA
Carina W Potter My son was given 2 shots in his entire life, BOTH of which he had terrible reactions to. I regret it and kick myself every day over it. But, I am glad to be able to tell you that my son and I are one of the few lucky ones that avoided further complications and possible autism (which I just KNOW he would have developed had I continued with the CDC's vaccination schedule), the 2 shots that he got were the dtap and polio vaccines. they were given to him at 2months(dtap) and 4months(polio) in single doses. This is AFTER I had signed a waiver in the hospital, opting out of the hep b shot administered on the first day of life AND after knowing all that I know now, I still ended up loading his little body with heavy metals. That should show you how doctors have become one of the worlds best drug pushers and how well pediatricians are trained to push vaccines. I was made to feel like a bad mother, a public health threat, and basically looked at like a lunatic, ALL because I was cautious and skeptical about what is being injected into my baby boy!!! PARENTS SHOULD BE CAUTIOUS OF SUCH THINGS!!! what is wrong with these people!!?? Anyway, after the first shot at 2 months(dtap), he instantly got a nasty ear infection that brought fevers and a deep cough that he was then prescribed antibiotics for and still could not shake for a long time until right before his next dr. apt at 4 months where he received another shot (polio) which made his health tail spin. Almost overnight, he had ANOTHER ear infection, this time Double. a fever, a cough that sounded like a 55 yr old man who had been smoking 2 packs of cigs his whole life, and also had developed GERD out of no where, was spitting up constantly, miserable constantly and all my clinic could offer me was more antibiotics and wrote the constant fussyness off as colic. It was a horrible experience and I have not, nor will I ever bring any of my kids back to that doctor or clinic. Since I stopped vaccinating him, he has not been sick once. EVERY single symptom has vanished, no fevers since, no constant crying, the GERD disappeared, he stopped spitting up and was laughing more and more each day. He became a new baby. It was amazing to me what simply STOPPING vaccinating actually did for his health. I am so thankful for people like you and for doctors like Dr. Wakefield, please continue your good work and continue spreading the word about this because It is so damn hard to see other mothers that I know or other children that I know going through what I did but the parents are just to brainwashed by the drug pushing dr.s to notice the link between their children weak health and vaccines...it baffles my mind that millions of parents around the world just think that it is normal for babies and kids to be sick like this all the time, it ISN'T!! Thanks again, good luck on your quest for truth and justice.
Helen Potter My doctor says it wasn't but when my boy had his he keep going back wards had all the sings of asd or that he wasn't right not progessing he had genes test but nothing show up The mmr jabs the town is horsham west sussex England.
Brandi Poulton The vaccine was DTP at 2 months. Reacted with fever and severe seizures. Brain Damage. Today, Jordan Poulton (13 Years old), does not speak, has many problems with motor skills, will never be in a normal classroom and was diagnosed with atrophey of the brain. He will never live alone, but does use some sign language. City was Hutchinson, KS.
Judy Povey This is my experience after my daughter was given the MMR at the American base at RAF Bentwaters, Suffolk in about 1981/2. Although she is not autistic, her childhood was dogged by continual ear infections and colds and finally in her early 20s a horrible dose of mono (glandular fever). Her low immune system has always been a puzzle to me, seing as I'm 60 years old and haven't had an anti-biotic since I was a small child, rarely get colds and never have had an ear infection in my life. My child's father was equally robust and during the few years I was married to him never had a cold or any illness. This is nothing like as debilitating as autism but I suspect my experience is common to many/most vaccinated children today, and for this reason, I think it's worth mentioning.
Josie Powell My daughter was given the MMR vaccine at 15 months old; 10 days later she was admitted to the hospital due to extreme sickness and what was thought to be febrile seizures. After leaving the hospital the following day, she began to regress. Once, a happy, healthy, verbal and developmentally advanced baby, my daughter Emma was now non-verbal, lost all play skills, eye-contact and lost all the developmental milestones that she had once passed with ease. Emma is now 16 years old, she remains non-verbal and is diagnosed Autistic. The MMR vaccine is to blame for Emma's diagnosis; it was administered in Yarmouth, Massachusetts. I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have.
Rian Power Received DtaP vaccine, left grey mark on skin, suffered severe neutropenia, regressed into severe autism Sunbury,UK
Rebecca Prete I have 3 kids! 9.4.and 2! my first born received the mmr shot and stopped talking, threw tantrums, bit himself, banged his head! but with intense therapy he has gotten better but non verbal! he uses an itouch to voice what he wants! and this happened at 16 months in california! my other 2 i stopped vaccines before the 18 months and theyre smart as can be!!
Denise Price My son was poisoned by vaccines in 1995 -1996, he was fine before the vaccines, the monster took my son away from me. After his first shots he got a rash on his arms and had a hard time breathing. Went to the hospital and they said he had asthma, and I said no it's the vaccines he just had. Doctors are trying to cover there ass.
Leah Price McKade was perfectly healthy until 14 months when he received an MMR, varicella, Hep B, Hib, and DTaP in the same office visit. He developed a fever that lasted for days. Within a week he became very withdrawn and would not interact with anyone. He appeared to be deaf and was evaluated several times for hearing lost. He also began to hoard items such as puzzle pieces and have to have them with him at all times in his sight. He also became irritable and would have periods of screaming as if in pain. McKade began having diarrhea and would have painful episodes of gas on a daily basis. He received these vaccinations in Brandon, Mississippi. Now 7 years old diagnosed as moderately autistic, he is beginning to be be verbal but has no social skills and can only answer direct questions. Very little eye contact, severe OCD and ADHD behaviors. Has celiac disease and another auto-immune disease called Dermatitis Herpetaformis also known as Duhring's disease. Extreme fixed interest that disrupt his home life and school. He also has elevated lactate to pyruvate levels and elevated lactate levels. MRI's also confirm a mitochondrial enchelopathy. Frozen skin biopsy was inconclusive on a specific mitochondrial disease. On another note our 4 year old Marley Kate has the same parents and same classic issues of pregnancy as her brother and sister. She has never received a vaccine and is perfectly healthy. No one single medical, emotional, or developmental problem at all.
Pamela Price My son was normal until 6 months, he got his shots and a few days later he was having seizures, lost his eye contact and everything else, Bowel problems. I know it was the immunizations!!! Following DPT had seizures a week after the shot. He is mentally disabled. 21 years old. Given in Kentucky in 1989
Leah A. Prinzi-Szuchon MMR fever,lethargic, dairhea, hospitalized, dehydration..administered in 6-2003,diagnosed severe autism and moderate MR 10-2003.Still same diagnosis today,completely non-verbal at 9 yrs old:( Erie,PA
Rosemarie Priola-Livigni My son had his 4month shots including DTAP and had screaming fits for hours accompanied with fever. He received his 6months shots at the age of 7 months and he had a febrile seizure as his temperature reached 105.5. He was hospitalized for ...a week and pumped with antibiotics.The hospital insisted that it was a UTI and refused to believe that it was related to his shots. He is two now but at 11 months had him seen by a great pediatrician and now is on biomedical protocoll. He has many gut issues and allergies. Early intervention has helped him and is verbal with no diagnosis currently. He has not received any more shots.
Chriso Prodromou It only took 2 vaccines 1 month apart of the DPT to close our 4th child, 9 months old, deep into an isolated world of Autism. Why oh why????, born 21/06/1998 only had DTP inj. the first jab administered at 9 months old, then we christened him at 10 months old, he was fine, bubbly child, then he regressed at 11 months after the booster, the red ears, walking on his tip toes, looking away, seemed deaf all started. How i wish i never did any vaccines. Ayia Napa Cyprus CYPRUS
Susan Youshock Pruyn Twin boys, MMR, bowels stopped working - whole food came thru n skin burning candida in stool. Born march 1998 - got MMR on schedule. Both diagnosed on autism spectrum on second birthday - though one has since lost diagnosis
Mary Ann Puckett My 29yr old son who has Early Infantile Autism received his first vaccine of DPT at one month of age and had a VIOLENT reaction. He screamed for 24 hrs and ran a temp of 104, even with Tylenol. Nothing we tried would calm him down. Within days of the vaccine he started having tremors several times a day. He would shake briefly for a few seconds and people holding him when this happened commented that it was not normal. When I discussed the tremors with his doctor he told me I was an over-reactive mother. I am convinced it was seizure activity. Stephen is now diagnosed with Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome and is on 4 seizure meds. Even with meds he has intractable seizures that are extremely difficult to control. Over the 29 years he has suffered so much damage from the seizures. I greatly appreciated your work in gathering information on vaccines. We live in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA Sincerely, Mary Ann Puckett firstname.lastname@example.org
Elizabeth Pugh Shots up to till 12 months lead to a temp of 104 for 3 weeks afterwards, leg and side pain. He could not even sleep on his back. Administered in Casa grande, az 18 months shots minus MMR administered early April after he turned three yrs. He reverted backwards Current condition: Autism, articulation disorder, receptive language disorder, expressive language disorder, Neurofibromatosis 1, Attention deficit Hyperactivity disorder, and he has a astighminatism Oh shots at 3 were administired in Indianapolis
Kate Punivai Just wanted to tell you about my son. I know this reaction is not severe compared to many others, but it was enough to make me investigate vaccines, and decide not to give my son any more of them. At 2 and 4 months, my son was given 5 shots (1. Diptheria, Tetanus & Whooping Cough 2. Hep B 3. Hib B 4.Polio and 5. Pneumococcal) After his 2 month vaccine, he developed severe eczema and became irritable, wouldn't sleep, colicky etc. After his 4 month vaccine, his eczema worsened. He was screaming for hours at night, and miserable during the day. After a number of months, I turned to a naturopath, who discovered he was intolerant to wheat, dairy and MSG (through my breastmilk) The naturopath believed these intolerances were triggered by the vaccines. He was also found to have a candida infection. He was treated with homeopathy, and his eczema and food intolerances are gone. He hasn't had any vaccines since then. I fully believe that if I'd continued with the vaccine schedule, that my son would also be one of the many children now suffering from autism disorders. Those vaccines were given in Canberra, Australia in 2008. His name: Judah Punivai
Jo Pyrah My sons have both had MMR, no sign of autism yet, both lost interest in eating their vegetables though, at around this time, I am now convinced of a relationship.
Jacki Raabe My son Davis received the MMR vaccine and changed overnight. He lost words, withdrew from his siblings and stopped sharing his joy with us (ie: showing us his toy, clapping when the dog walked into the room, etc.) He currently has a diagnosis of Aspergers-he was originally diagnosed with PDD-NOS. Other issues-sensory processing, celiac disease and dyslexia-I am not putting those on the vaccine; however, I do believe that he would be "quirky" as opposed to autistic had it not been for the first administration of the MMR shot. I also believe that he would have "classic" autism were it not for all of our early intervention and dietary changes and supplementation. We did not booster MMR or Varicella, though the titers drawn says that he's gained immunity. He is 7 years old.
Brittany Rae My 4 year old started going downhill at his 12 month check up and he was very advanced for his age since day one. Sitting up, crawling and everything. I believe it was the combination of shots and the mmr. He’s 4 now just beginning to form sentences and your actually able to understand him. He used to be a calm, relaxed and a very mellow infant now he is aggressive, hyper and out of control. I had another little boy in June and finally found a doctor who will postpone his mmr until he’s 2. Apparently it is now mandated to vaccinate your child, if doctors have too many parents denying vaccines they lose their funding. That’s what they told me when I transferred my boys providence RI
Tisa McCanless Radcliff Mountain Home, Arkansas USA - MMR @ 1 year in 1995- delayed motor skills, speech, didn't walk until almost 3 years old, was in her own little world.

Hearing test was normal. First steps contacted. 9/9/08: lethargic, fever, no improvements with developmental delays. 10/10/08: Influenza vaccine: 10/28/08: sick visit: 101 fever for 1 week prior, cough and chest congestion. 11/7/08: influenza vaccine: More records are missing . All further vaccines have been declined: Grace never regained the ability to babble (talk), she struggles with her walking and balance. She has a very hard time using her hands and struggles with grasp. We have had several genetic tests done (including 2 tests for retts syndrom). All results were normal with no mutations found. She had an MRI showing a normal functioning brain. She had an EEG showing no seizure activity. She now suffers from sever IgE food allergies to Corn, Wheat, Milk, Eggs, Soybeans, Peanuts, Treenuts, and Sesame Seeds. She has never had a formed bowl movements. She wakes at night screaming in pain that I can not stop because she can not tell me where or what hurts. She is only able to eat 3 foods currently. She suffers from severe eczema. She is nonverbal so these are the major ailments that we can tell she suffers from. I have had to leave my career in order to stay home to care for Grace 24/7. It is unknown if she will ever lead a productive functional life on her own. She has 3 siblings that are constantly affected by her vaccine injury. There lives are put on hold as every event revolves around who will care for Grace, what food can we bring, and can we afford it as our finances have been severely effected. Therapy (ABA) now runs $120,000 a year and her diet is roughly $300 a week. I can no longer work, and my husband is a firefighter. This is bankrupting us. We will most likely loose our home. I did seek compensation through the vaccine injury compensation fund but was told by 3 attorneys that they are not taking any autism cases and do not know of anyone who is. The others that I contacted never returned my calls. Her statute has expired. We are left on our own to find the money and resources to try to make her life livable.
Tara Ramos After my son got the hep B, he stopped breathing, went limp and we called 911, he is now 6 and diagnosed pdd-nos. We are from Arbuckle ca
Roxane Ramsey Eric got his first vaccine at 2 weeks old (God I was stupid to allow this)and descended into autism from then on. This happened at Rex Hospital in Raleigh North Carolina ( Kaiser Permanente HMO). he is now 18 years old. cognitive age 5-6 years. very little speech.
Sarah Rank My son had 7 vaccines (DTAP, HIB, Hep B, Pneumococcal, and Polio) administered via 3 injections on 10/19/2007. He was not quite 2 months old. He slept for 3 hours and when he woke up, he screamed a high-pitched scream for 7 hours. It was NOT normal. He would not make eye contact and he didn't even want to nurse. It was the worst day of our lives! He is now 3.5 years old and seemilngly normal. We haven't done ANY vaccines since that day and will not, either. Our daughter (1) is completely unvaxxed. La Crosse, WI. I never even reported it to VAERS.
Paula Rankin, I waited until our son was 2 before I vaccinated. He was a normally developed toddler and we were seeing a paediatrician. I asked for polio tetanus and diphtheria shot, NO pertussis. That is how I vac. our other children. The arrogant Dr. came in with one syringe and I commented because with our other children the vaccine without pertussis had to be given in 2 shots. He said not to worry. He gave the shot. and passed me the vaccine card. On getting home I look at the card and see he gave MMR, Hib and DT and P. All in one shot to my son! Within a month my son developed seizures. He is now 7 and still has seizures and we have to deal with anti epileptic drugs and cognitive delays. I have not given him another vaccine and I NEVER will.
Dana Corrente Read We lost him, his words, his eye contact, his smile and his health following MMR.
Sara Reider After the HepB vaccine shortly after birth, my son went from a happily nursing, content baby - to becoming stiff, rigid (hypertonia - a sign of brain damage) and screamed constantly (extreme colic). He also developed that "lost" look in his eyes (like no one is home). He didn't speak until 3.5. He's 7 now and has progressed wonderfully. Life and sparkle has returned to his eyes. Autism is still present, but he is fully conversational (with just pragmatic difficulties) and extremely bright. Sensitive, sweet, compassionate, creative, funny - a joy. Still stims a lot to "process" and "think" and can tune out from time to time. He also remains somewhat "stiff" to this day, but not as severely so as he was in infancy. His EEG readings are wonky (abnormal) - but he does not have seizures (knock on wood). He is doing great - and we are very optimistic about his future. Wilmington, NC
Shannon Nicole Renis MMR shot took away my sons eye contact and social interaction the 18 months shot gave him a seizure and lost all speech quit eating... Has severe constipation lost all speech (I never heard of autism till after this) become extremely O.C.D. I have 3 boys my oldest is diagnosed with autism hes 5 nonverbal. He had 50 words my 18 months had a series of shots and the dr said she was gonna give him his 2 yr shots to so we didnt have to come back in in a month and that it was comple...tely safe he ended up getting a fever having a seizure and loosing everything within 2 weeks.. He did loose intersest in other children after his one yr shot to....but other than that he was fine we thought he was just jealious of his baby brother we also have a 4 yr old who was behind but when we stopped the shots he caught right up.. And my 3 yr old has no shots and is fine...
Kurt Rhoney Our son consistently had ear infections, health problems (colds, etc.) after each and every vaccine and stopped talking after the MMR and flu vaccine at 15 months of age. Typical signs of Autism followed. Seemed deaf or hard of hearing, had... no eye contact, and could play with rocks for hours. No one would tell us what our son had or what was going on for 3 months after until we took our son out of the USA to see a doctor in a South American country. A good majority of Doctors in the USA are not paying attention to the Children they are vaccinating enough to know when to vaccinate and when not too and parents are paying the price for trusting them. I would like to thank all the DAN doctors who work hard and learn new cutting edge treatments. We need treatment good centers around the country! Honolulu, Hawaii
Amanda Irene Richards My son was a normal, healthy little boy, spoke, played, laughed, he had his mmr and two days later he never spoke again...I watched him get tested after for genetics, chromosomes, everything was normal, the only thing different was that vaccine. Lakeland, florida
Destiny Ridling My son had some words,learning to walk...at 14months they administered the dtap and mmr...that night he got fever,turned to pneumonia,began to lose words,stopped walking,no longer turned when name called,lost eye contact,started spacing out and asthma began.he didnt walk again til 22 months old,just now have about 5 words but he is 8 now. NorthBend Oregon
Deena Velez Rivera My son was 20 months when he rcvd DTaP. Hib Influenza B and Oral Polio vaccines in one visit. Suffered fever the seizure lost all speech & appetite began head banging all in 24hrs. Dx- PDD-nos and ADHD. Tampa, Fl He is almost 12 now, ver...bal but not age appropriately, in a main-stream class and on GF diet.

Daniel Robb Had MMR, DT and polio injections at age 15 years, arrested development, neuropsychiatric symptoms, is now 31 in full time care. (Scotland).
Elizabeth Lucye Robillard Mine. Had flu straight away -Jamie Jones - fever- was given ephidrine by a locum GP (?!!) was just THREE WEEKS OLD vaccines administered by Dr.Periyasami of the OM SAI Medical Centre, London, UK, SW5 =from a warm cupboard - 3 shots, then 3 more three weeks later despite still having a cold - did not develop any speech but a gut problem, weird stuff and gut-clutching still aged 18 in diapers - no doctor will help him - me not allowed to see him (ask Andy why) Jamie had some speech when his dad stopped seeing him for a year but then he lost it when sent to live with him again, now suffering silently in Treehouse thanks to nasty people
Brian Robinson My son had three weeks of fevers right after his one year mmr and slowly lost his ability to walk, talk, socialize, eat, had constant diarrhoea, cried nonstop, didn't sleep, lost eye contact, tensed uncontrollably. Snohomish county, Washington state.
Kaci Robotka My son went in for his 1 year shots and got all 7 in one day. Within 6 weeks he lost all his speech, began having OCD tendencies and his daycare noticed "something wrong". They were administered in Rice Lake, WI. He is now 3... Technically nonverbal but can say the simple words he could when he was 1.
Melinda Herwehe Robson After receiving his MMR shot at 12 months my son stopped talking, cried all of the time, was unable to be calmed and did not want to be held, he totally regressed. We are from Iowa.
Mercedes Rocco My son was a perfectly normal kid they held off on his shots cause he had to have surgery for his belly. After he healed we went for a series of shots and he got very ill, 105 fevers, leg swollen, his eyes started rolling in the back of his head took him to the hospital they didn’t know what was wrong it lasted for 3 days. They released him with no evidence, no seizures activity. We went home and my boy was never the same, he didn’t look at me, didn’t know his name anymore, cried around his favorite swing he loved so much. He wasn’t the same they told me he has autism. Ok doesn’t make sense, then I looked up vac. reactions and they were the same symptoms. I have two other boys they are perfectly fine. I will not believe that there is no link. Saginaw, Michigan
Cara Rodriguez By addressing what caused my daughter's DX I have helped to reverse many of her symptoms and progress in her treatment. My daughter was nonverbal prior to diet and detox, w/in two days of dieting and detox she started talking as if someone turn off the mute button. She tested with high levels of aluminum after her HIB reaction. Check out my "The day our lives changed" album, it should be viewable to the public. I have info in there about aluminum and what high levels do to kids. You shouldn't assume that those who speak out about what happened to their kids are only focussing on that, what happened. I have my daughter doing 2 hrs of ABA a week, 90 mins of speech and 2 hours of OT in addition to her diet changes and supplement use and school 5 days a week (which offers more speech and OT). I too am doing everything in my power to help her progress as well. You should do the research, you may find more ways to help your kid. We don't speak out about our experiences solely to place blame and wallow in our self pity. It's because we KNOW and watched what happened to our kids and we want to help prevent it from happening to other children. I WATCHED my daughter stop talking and walking the very same day she got the MMR. I listened t hear screaming for hours following the shot. I should have done my research then because I would have avoided her next shot, the HIB which left her brain damaged. I am not trying to come off as abrasive, but I absolutely HATE when people suggest that in speaking out that we aren't doing everything we can to help our kids, or that we are sentencing them to death by no longer vaxing. I watched my daughter react to the MMR and the HIB. In retrospect i think she also may have had a reaction to the Hep B in the hospital because immediately following the vaccine she was screaming bloody murder for three hours which then started her "colic". The vaccine was administered in Chicago, Il.
Shelly Rogers My daughters seizures started after the shots, then a year of tests, then the label autistic.
Kersten Rojas After every vaccine, my child became sick (RSV, bronchiolitis, measles (3 times), fevers, 'toddlers' diarrhoea. dx'd autism at 2, PANDAS at 4, and Autoimmune encephalopathy at 5. Recovered at 6 with biomed, homeopathy, and IVIG. Batavia, IL
Amanda Roland My sons vaccs as an infant after his MMR, ran high fevers off and on for months then @ 18 months 2004 he hit a brick wall stopped smiling didn’t hardly talk. Now he has speech problems that are getting better. He’s in 3rd grade, reads at 1st grade level but is mains stream with help thanx to my determination n hard work!
Marsha Romanowki My son was about 18 months old when he started to regress. He had been developing normally up until then. After that he was an angry, violent child who didn’t speak until he was four and wasn’t fully potty trained until 12 years old. Then my son received a booster at 13 years old. Within a week he was committed to a psychiatric hospital for a month. Where he was finally diagnosed with PPD NOS. This was after years of misdiagnosis, test, therapies, countless doctors, etc. My 11 year old has also been diagnosed with PPD NOS in last few months as well. Seth 20 - no asd. Spencer 15 - PPD NOS, Bipolar, Mentally handicapped, etc. Sidney 11 - PPD NOS
Jennifer Romans My teenage daughter had severe. Reactions,she had seizures and would pass out. west plains,mo
Damiano Rongioletti I am the father of a 13-year-old boy who has suffered damage from a vaccine. I write from Italy. my son went through some very delicate moments in the first 6 months. At 4 months he had open-heart surgery. At 6 months he had Pneumonia, at 7 months to 11 months 1 dose vaccination (POLIORAL) with Thimerosal then, another 6 interventions. I made call after call following the vaccines but my son got more and more worse. In three years he was a child with cerebral palsy, seizures, big problems with intestinal impairment and central visual cortical blindness. Only thanks to Dr Montinari, I figured out the cause of the damage. The State does not want to recognize the damage from the vaccine. Indeed, the expert said that Dr Wakefield was biased, this is unacceptable.
Becky Rose Our son Johnathan Rose he is age 7 but 2 yrs ago we found out he now has IBS and we see Dr. Krigsman. He was age 2 when we found out he has mild autism but we new something was up at the age 18 months which was 6 months after he received his MMR shot. Johnathan is a vaccine injured child from the MMR. Jacksonville, Florida
Holli M. Rose Pharm.D. Clinical Psychiatric Pharmacist Specialist My son was born in 2001, so the last cohort of kids that may still have contained mercury. I’m a pharmacist so he was fully vaccinated. Before his extra flu shot received at 2 (becuz his brother was born and too young to get the vaccine I gave another to Connor..the 2yr old), he had language (200words), a flirt, great eye contact, laughed. He started losing some of it slowly until the last flu vaccine seemed to send him over the top and the stims began, language all gone, permanent frown, tantrums became horrible,, sleep bad. Poop became bad at 18mo after MMR (2 weeks of diarrhea which continued for 4 years as soft stools until finally got better from GFCF diet and many many biomed/med trials. Also had fever, screaming and poor sleep for a week aftrer MMR). Early on, at 12mo, he could even identify letters. Took several years for the laugh to come back, occasionally. Took chelation for even one word to come back. Frown is still permanently there for the most part though. It was like he was kidnapped. Connor is now 9. Vaccines were in Long beach
Amy Rosenquist My son had an adverse reaction to his HepB vaccine at 24 hours old, in 1998 in Chicago. He had been a very calm newborn up until then & had already nursed successfully several times, but after that he was stiff, rigid, cried inconsolably, only nursed for a few seconds at a time then pulled away screaming, only slept for 45 minutes at a time. That lasted for about six weeks. He had similar reactions to his 6 vax at 2 months, 4 months, & 6 months but each time I was told it was my fault or if I did this or that differently he would be fine. At 12 mos he had a few syllables (partial words) and hand pulled us where he wanted us. After his MMR he lost even that communication and appeared to be in a conscious but vegetative state for the next year or so until I discovered biomedical treatments online. Within a few days of taking gluten & dairy out of his diet he began making eye contact and small gestures again. My daughter, also in Chicago, had an adverse reaction to Dtap, Hib, HepB at 2 mos in 2001 - stopped making eye contact, dramatically averting her eyes, for 2 weeks, which I was told was because I "was busy and didn't realize I'd stopped making eye contact with her." At 4 mos she had a dramatically adverse reaction to that same combo, this time screaming nonstop for 36 days. Previously she had been a very verbal, smiley, engaged baby. Following the vax she was rigid, stiff, screamed constantly, projectile vomited for 6-8 months after nursing, had diarrhea daily for a year, and stopped vocalizing entirely. At 16 mos she accidentally ingested a cup of her brother's rice milk, in which Houston enzymes were dissolved (powder). A few hours later she began babbling and later that evening had her first formed stool in her life. I should have added that after my daughter's 4 mos vax adverse reaction, she never had further vaccines, & never the MMR - which is probably why she fully recovered Thanks for your work on Dr. Wakefield's behalf. If it hadn't been for his research I would not have been able to investigate and treat my children, which has resulted in my daughter's full recovery and my son becoming a high functioning, verbal, and profoundly artistically gifted young man. On a very small scale I have experienced a tiny bit of what he is enduring, being one of the moms reported to child protective services for using biomedical interventions. Please do not hesitate to let me know if there is any other way that I can help.
Jennifer Fleig Rossi Our 9 year son was born and was developing very typically. He reached all his milestones on time if not early. After receiving his MMR at his check up he became very ill. He spiked a fever of over 104 and could not stop vomiting and developed eczema o the back of his upper arms. He was admitted to the hospital where they had to re-hydrate him and give him meds to stop the vomiting. After that, I noticed his babbling plateaued, his eye contact got bad, his fine motor skills were terrible, he would stare at fans for hours on end and would spin anything he could. After years of therapy and doctors he has been diagnosed with Aspergers. He remains in a normal classroom and is a very bright child with no discipline problems but still has that detachment that aspies have. We were lucky to get the intervention early but that was all us advocating for him and doing and paying for it on our own. His pediatrician could never seem to see anything wrong. We are with a DAN! doctor now out of Charlotte, NC.- Fort Mill, SC
Eleanor Grace Rowe - age 18. Our story is like all the others....doing great...bright and alert...get vaccines and falls into all the symptoms we read so much about. Many years later I did a hair anaylsis test on her and according to the Mineral Displacement counting rules as outlined by Andy Cutler, her results indicated mercury poisoning. She never eats fish, we do not live near a power plant and she has never had a filling in her teeth. So where else would it come from? Also, only now, after all these years have we put together a family history that shows our family DOES NOT do well with the MMR. SERIOUS side effects for relatives. Wish I had known. Guntersville, Alabama
Kelly Ruebling We believe my son Seth was affected by the MMR vaccination administered in Ofallon Missouri. He had been saying words until he was 15 months old and then he just stopped. He was diagnosed with ASD when he was 2 and has been in speech therapy and special instruction since. He can now mock us but doesn't really know what he's saying.
Tara Vanlandingham Rucker Evan/born 2/25/97 Had MMR at 18 mths and had 3 seizures. Was told it was night terrors. He received them in Greenwood, IN. He has Aspergers, OCD, ODD, Trichotillomania and Tics.
Shannon N Ruhe My son had a fever when I took him in for MMR, chicken pox, and tetanus at 15 months. He still 6 yrs later has a rash at the injection site. We were blessed though to have information, though he started as severe, he has recovered. We live in Kingwood Texas.
Angela Ruiz My son was 18 months old and after his vaccines he started having about 100 myoclonic seizures daily, he stopped talking and developmentally went downhill, he is now going to be 11 and still has daily seizures and autism. I live in Bexar County, SA, TX. He also has Tardive Dyskinesia from medications and Celiac Disease.
Jennifer Farris Russell My son was developing normally (walking, talking, meeting milestones, etc.), until he received a MMR at 12 months. From there, it was all down hill. The vaccine was administered in Corbin, KY.
Theresa Russell My grandson Tristin is 6. He started acting different as soon as he got his first baby shots in Detroit, Michigan. I knew he was autistic real early but he wasnt officially diagnosed untill he was 4. He didnt talk untill he was 4 and he has hirshprungs disese.
Val Ruston in 1953 my brother died a couple of days after his whooping cough vaccine and I had a massive asthma attack but survived, we lived in Tilbury Essex England
Ashley Ryburn (Colorado) I want to introduce you to Ashley. She was 15 at the time of her first shot and she is now 16. Here is what her mother has to say about her daughter. "I am a single mother and have dedicated my life to providing a safe, fun loving environment for my daughter. She has been a gift in my life. I describe her as having an old soul. People of all ages, race, disabled, even animals connect with her. She has always attracted attention from everyone even complete strangers. Ashley will immediately help anyone in need. From holding open a door, to standing up for a child being picked on. People in our community always tell me what a great job I have done raising her." "Ashley has always been involved in extra curricular school activities and has always received top grades. My healthy teenage daughter became a chronically ill young woman. In the last year I have called 911 more times than I can count. She has been hospitalized three times within a year. We have seen many doctors and specialists who have done many tests multiple times all to be within normal limits. Ashley experiences life threatening episodes of seizure like activity, difficulty breathing, major back spasms, paralysis, dehydration, memory loss and tremors and she becomes unresponsive. She has daily illnesses of nausea, exhaustion, vomiting, pain and hair loss. I have provided CPR and life saving skills on a regular basis". "Ashley and I have had conversations in the event she may die. I can only promise her that I will do everything in my power for this not to happen and that we need to focus on healing. I never thought in a million years a vaccine would do this much damage to my beautiful girl. I stay strong for my daughter. I also cry with her too. I keep faith in knowing God doesn't put more on our shoulders than we can handle. As a mother, I also feel the responsibility to get Ashley's story out there so we can help other families." "Now she is ill - her life is dealing with daily symptoms and hoping for a day without a life threatening episode."
Joanna H Rydzewski My son born 1984 and at 6 wks DPT shot and infantile spasms/seziures/crying/developmentally delayed /nuerologically/blind/noncommunicative/ wheelchair/diapers/24-7 care. He was never given the rest of the shots due to exempt from the reactions. Issued in Middlesex County in NJ and attends special needs school. He later diag with renal tubular acidosis type I, and autism now. I do not care what other people say about these vaccines cause I know what they did to my son. I have lived with this dreadful injury for the past 26 yrs.
Julie Rylance Our son had his first vaccination at 4 1/2 months (but scheduled in Australia at 2 months) (which in 2 needles included DTPa, IPV, HIB, HepB, PPV & PCV (pneumococcal) - everything scheduled but the rotavirus). The weekend prior to the vaccine he had begun rolling both directions and was quite happy on his tummy reaching out and grabbing toys. For 6 weeks following he did not reach out a hand to grab at any toys but looked at them whimpering and did not roll again for months. By the time he started to reach out (just a little bit) to his toys he was due for his next vaccine and we have opted to not continue them. We are filled with regret that we buckled to the bullying by the GP to get him vaccinated when we had only brought him in initially for a check-up - our intention being to start vaccinations at 12 months. He is now 15 months old and we have had him to a specialist paediatric physiotherapist who has diagnosed him with low muscle tone / delayed crawling and development of gross and fine motor skills. She is amazing and he has improved at an incredible rate in just the last 3 months. His paedatrician at 6 week checkup said "he has good muscle tone and a nice double chin". I am not sure whether we received a mis-diagnosis from the paediatrician at 6 weeks and he has always had low muscle tone or whether it has been a result of the vaccination. We have been made to feel ridiculous and stupid by a number of GP's who said that the vaccine had nothing to do with his sudden loss of interest in grabbing at toys etc. - we have since found a GP who believed us and has recommended that we not continue vaccinations until he has caught up on his development. This GP does not advise that a child with development delays be vaccinated which is an amazing find. We have never had any intention of getting the MMR - we have heard far too much anecdotal evidence of the possible dangers. Queensland, Australia
Sarah Saich My son is 4 years old. After first MMR shot at 14 months he started head banging, screaming for hours, wouldnt sleep or eat. Diagnosed with autism at 2 years old. Had his 2nd shot MMR 3 months ago and became so violent and difficult he is now on daily medication. I am totallly convinced the vaccinations are to blame. We live in the UK and he had both shots in London.
Alisande Salmon I don't know how to draw the line from my children’s disorders and their vaccinations. So what I can do is tell you what i know. Any help i can give to further gather info and/or assist, just let me know. My daughter Samsara, born in 1991, was given her vaccinations 2 twice ! Once as a child normally, again when she was in foster care and her records were supposedly "lost". She was in foster care for a year when she was 12-13 and is going to be 20 soon. I hit the roof when her foster mother called me telling me that they couldn't find her records which i couldn’t find after moving When they looked it up in dept of health it was nowhere to be found yet I had provided them every time she went to school_ so where did they go ? I asked her to put the doctor on the phone but the doctor refused to speak with me. The doctor told the foster mother that my daughter had to have them then and it was mandatory. I remember crying on the phone and begging them to please not give them to her. They were giving her all of her shots from infancy to the present ALL OVER AGAIN WITHOUT MY CONSENT. I was able to get record of my son from dept of health but they couldn’t do this for my daughter? how was I able to et her into school all these years? they wouldn’t even look that up to avoid giving her the shots and i was drained from having a daughter in foster care that was just acting out originally. I remember her getting fever and calling me to tell me she felt tired and had fever several time in the following two weeks. The year after is when she was diagnosed with elevated ANA levels. Her legs would swell and she'd sleep all day, be awake at night and have either no appetite or she'd over eat. My daughter would get worse gradually and I thought it was depression or just teen years but she never wanted to do anything unless she was going out at night with friends whose company i did not favour. She always seemed lethargic, lazy and distracted easily yet in a fog. I feel she has come out of it somewhat but i just don't know. My son had problems talking at first, he was almost 2 when he 'started" saying words. He seemed ok but all of a sudden new vaccination cocktails started coming out a few years back. We lived in the Bronx, not a bad neighbourhood, but it had it share of the ghetto close by. I thought the doctor just around the corner was fine but felt they were pushing vaccinations all the time. My son was already 11 and every time we went to the doctor even for sick visits, they were telling me he had to get another vaccination. wth? 3 years ago i tried to get exempt fighting the board of ed using a guideline from a lawyer who advocated for safer vaccines or none at all. I even sent in articles which documented how the first cases of Autism began surfacing after the first small pox vaccinations... and that it was against my religious beliefs...etc. I was denied of course because..we have no rights. Over a year ago my son developed an ongoing bout of stomach disorders. It would start with vomiting off and on for 24 hours and cease. This would continue for a year and just recently started again. The doctors, 3 all together have not been able to diagnose him. There it is.
Jean Saltzman First grandson we believe was injured by the Hepatitis B Vaccine. Hasn't been diagnosed with anything except Emotionally Impaired. He has many Apspergers's Characteristics. The second grandson got pnemonia a few days after the DTAP vaccine and was sick for weeks. Lapeer, MI
Katy Shrimpy Samuels Storm (now 9) perfectly normal devel until mmr.Started screaming the night she had it...and never really stopped!Stopped crusing,vocalising/trying to feed herself.Back to crawling and screaming!Diagnosed with autism at 2yrs.in special school now.hope this helps. Aberystwyth,wales"
Heather White Sanders Tampa oct 2006. She got a high fever from vaccines and was gone in 7 days, lost language, eye contact. Everything!
Stephanie Freeman Sanford Bennett had 5-7 words and usual milestones up
until food allergies started getting him sick. Add the MMR at 12 months on top
of that and he regressed slowly to no speech and loss of eye contact, diarrhea
by 18 months.
Katy Santana My son was given the MMR vaccine at 14 months. Within 24 hours he spiked a fever of 108 degrees and maintained that temperature for 3 days. When the fever went away so did all of his speech, emotion and eye contact. I reported the problem to his doctor who promptly told me the vaccine could not have been the cause. We had him evaluated by speech, occupational & physical therapists and then a behavioural doctor. He was diagnosed with Moderate to Severe Autism at 22 months old. When he was 4, I had him re-evaluated, the diagnosis was changed to Mild High Functioning Autism & ADHD. He is now 8 years old. Manitowoc, Wisconsin. USA.
Amanda Carpenter Saraco Hep B Amory, MS June 2004- when my daughter was a newborn in the hospital, they gave her the vaccine without even telling me... She was brought to me sleeping and I could not make her wake up for 6 hours to feed- and had to fight to keep h...er awake for feeding constantly for months, explosive, weird, slimy smelly bms. Rashes were our life. We when I told my doc, he explained to me how I finally have a 'good' baby that will give me a break by sleeping all the time? He did not even look at her! Then just became less verbal after 18 mos vaccines. Both my girls had high fevers and lots of crying (for at least an hour) after vaccines, and swelling at shot sites I never knew which ones did it as they gave so many at once!. My other daughter has dylexia, ADHD, possible asperger's.
Julia Overstreet Sathler Our son had what is called a “staring incident” after one of his Prevnar vaccines. He sat there expressionless with no smiling, talking, or following things with his eyes for a few hours. It was not immediately after the vaccine, but a few hours later. It wasn’t until I tried to find out what happening online that I realized this sometimes occurs after vaccination. At that point his pediatrician wrote in his chart that he should have no more Prevnar, and he has not. Around this time he was having other very scary issues like the unexplained “Sandifer’s Syndrome”, which are spasms; plus reflux, asthma, and some severe intestinal issues. They began to talk about colon surgery, but fortunately he began to heal and it was not necessary. I began to feel that his eye contact was not what it should be for a baby and that perhaps he was at risk for an autism spectrum problem. Fortunately he was still an infant when this happened, so we could intervene at an early stage. We have decided to space out his vaccinations and only administer them monovalently (single dose). As he got older and active we noticed that he sweats profusely compared to people in our family or other children his age, which can be a sign of aluminum toxicity. Because of this, combined with his intestinal issues, he was thought to have cystic fibrosis, but fortunately he did not. To me, his mother, he smells like my grandmother’s aluminum pots when he sweats. Fortunately he is older now, and through a careful vaccination protocol, combined with nutritional approaches, he seems to be quite healthy. Fatal neurological problems do run in one side of the family, and we believe this heredity has made him susceptible to some of the ingredients in vaccines. I think it is a travesty that children are not screened for risk factors in vaccination.
Bette Sartore High temperature, one high pitched scream and then silence. My son Galen, born 1993, was diagnosed profoundly autistic in Melbourne, Australia at 4 years of age. After his MMR shots were administered his body responded with a high temperature and frantic screaming. This continued for 4 hours and then he let out a piercing scream. After that nothing. The doctor told me the next day all children have some reaction to vaccination. We slowly lost him completely and were given his diagnosis. After ABA for many years and Biomed and Secrenase ( he is now in his 8th year) he is still autistic but slight anxiety is the only behaviour. He is learning to be a potter, plays piano, writes and films his own movies and yesterday he saw me with heavy bags and yelled out wait mum I'll take them in for you. I wrote a book which was published in 2000 "Diagnosis Autism - where to go from here." (http://www.angelfire.com/my/bookpage/) with help from Dr. Bernard Rimland (ARI) Autism unit University of San Diego and Dr. Paul Shattock "Autism unit " at the University of Sunderland UK. It details everything we tried with Galen, how it worked, the outcomes as well as where and how to try them for yourself. I was actually threatened by phone about adding information on Vaccination but did it any way including "What's in a shot" and A letter to photocopy for your doctor to sign stating he will be responsible for anything that happens to your child in relation to the vaccine. Victoria, Australia
Kelly Martineau Sastamoine Heb B- jandus, loss of oral motor control, constipation, milk allergy, 2 holes in his heart: all by 6 weeks of age.
Gloria Satterlee Following vaccinations in both arms simultaneously with MMR and Hep. B. She was so ill that she was bedridden for awhile and had insomnia so bad that she was threatening to take her own life after a 2 week period where she barely slept at all. Only after being given Ambien could she finally sleep, but sleep was always non-restorative. Every system in her body was affected, brain, immune, central nervous system, muscles, eye sensitivity to light, digestive, pain, you name it. She had NMH because her body did not produce enough blood volume and had to be on salt and Florinef for years. She was extremely ill from age 15 to about 20, then she gradually improved. She is mostly well now, with flare ups now and then but now she is facing a different battle. She is divorcing her very abusive husband and he is trying to use the fact that she did not vaccinate her children because of the reactions that she and also her sister had from them. He had always agreed with her about it but now is saying that he didn't! They are going to try to use this against her in the custody trial! The judge ordered the children to be vaccinated and she told them that she agreed to having it done, just not all at once cocktail fashion. The ex and his parents took the kids to be vaccinated against her wishes. She tried to reason with them and get them to give them one at a time to see if they would have any reactions, but they went around her secretly and had the health dept. do it. They are trying to say that she is crazy and irresponsible. We need someone to testify that she was in fact acting in a responsible way to proceed with caution in vaccinating them. Dansville, NY
Tamara Schauman My child was sick with viral bronchitis when he was administered an MMR vaccine. He reacted to the shot quickly, acting different the same night. Within three days he completely stopped talking and has been non-verbal and pretty severe ever since. He was administered his vaccines in Morganton, N.C.
Jackie Schlegel-Polvado On the Day of Birth my daughter was given a hep. B shot, she developed a 101.6 fever, vomiting, and seizures and screamed for 4 days straight, literally. She was then diagnosed with autism and GI dysfunction. I live in Fort Worth Texas.
James Schlipf Our son Parker was hitting all normal development milestones until his one year well-baby checkup in the fall of 1997. He received a DTaP vaccine (7 shots combined) while on a prescription for antibiotics; When we expressed concern, we were told that he had to keep on his vaccine schedule and that vaccines were good for him. His cough got worse and he had symptoms of pertussis. He then got the MMR vaccine (8 shots combined) in the spring of 1998, turned red all over, ran a fever of 105 for four days, screamed all night, and the doctor said it was not an unusual reaction and to wait it out. Within 60 days he had lost all eye contact, speech, and almost completely stopped sleeping. Diagnosed in 2000 with "moderately severe" autism by Dr. John Nickel at Oregon Health Sciences University in Portland, Oregon, who told us there were no cures or treatments and we should "let go of him." Dr. Nickel pretended to have never heard of the GFCF diet, but we soon discovered he publishes articles in medical journals training pediatricians how to steer parents away from "alternative treatments." (He lied to us.) Parker has been seeing a DAN doctor for ten years and a combination of special diets, supplements, and highly individualized therapy have kept him out of institutions. Insurance covers almost none of this. He still does not speak, but he is learning to read and write, understands conversations, and is a delightful young man with a great sense of humor
Christina Schmidt Our darling Emily developed normally until the age of 14 months, at which time she received her first round of immunization booster shots. At this first visit, she received 3 separate immunizations. During the short drive home, it was evident that something was wrong. Instead of her normal happy demeanor, she appeared confused and even had an unusual “worried” look on her face. After arriving home, we put her in her walker so we could prepare her lunch. Again it was evident that something was wrong as she began to pace nervously through the house and would occasionally stop and cry out for no apparent reason. Looking into her eyes. I could see repeated dilations and contractions of her pupils. In an effort to console her, we tried to pick her up but she would quickly push herself away from me. She still had the confused and worried look on her face. My daughter was lost to 'autism' 20 minutes following 3 shots at 14 mths old. Here is our blog, www.emilyshopefund.blogspot.com. it is a story of what happened to her what we've been through and what treatments/biomedical interventions we are doing and seeking for her care. Tarrant Cnty. Texas
Steve Schmill Our daughter was affected almost immediately by the MMR vaccine. Went from speaking at six months to almost completely nonverbal about six months after the shot, with stimming and wild tantrums and sweaty nightmares. Sunken eyes, eczema, looked like a haunted, zombie girl. I think she had exposure to mercury through other environmental factors in utero, but the vaccine was the straw that broke the camel's back. She had the bowel issues and allergies to dairy and milk within months of the vaccines, but it took us a few months to find the cause. First we did the cf diet and skin condition, bowel issues and the dark circle around her eyes went away. Then with the gfcf she began speaking again, echolalia lessened, stimming became less often, the tantrums and the strange nightmares slowly began to fade. Took years though. We did the SCD diet recently and she can tolerate small amounts of wheat now. She has Asperger's, and I am on the cusp - much higher functioning. I also had gfcf issues but less severe, also did the gfcf diet and I can now have a little bit of wheat a week with no impact on intellectual or emotional functioning, and if you would like, I could describe to you the symptoms I used to have while on wheat and dairy when I was a kid, and they were pretty rough. I also have candida/yeast issues - I have to limit the amount of sugar I eat or I will get a mouth full of canker sores that can last for months. Anyhow, if you have have any other questions, let me know. We have two other children, the second received a few vaccines before we realized the connection, and discontinued, as we started to see an impact. She is fine and is quite sharp, and our son, who has a pretty large head, which concerned our doctor enough to monitor him for symptoms, has received zero vaccines and on a cognitive and social level performing like a champ at almost five years of age. I have no doubt he would be extremely autistic had we vaccinated him. I am quite sure if we were genetically tested we would find mitochondrial issues and oxidative stress and all that, so we have worked hard to limit exposure to all toxins, especially heavy metals and synthetics like dioxin. Can't avoid coal smoke from the power plants, the writing may be on the wall for people like us, and political powers make it impossible to discuss the mercury they are putting in the environment or those stupid mercury-loaded bulbs that many Americans throw in a landfill rather than recycle, not realizing the potential harm that could inflict when that stuff leeches into the water table/aquifier. The way I see it is this - my children and I have been blessed with machinery that has an easy time with abstract reasoning, numbers and language. But in exchange for that, we have to avoid toxins, or the machine will break. No one gave us the manual for the equipment we own, and only now are we seeing it being written, with a the help of people like you. So thank you - your help promoting the people with the information that will help families like mine survive is much appreciated.
Erika Schron My oldest, Zek, now 18 was on the late end of normal with the general milestones, he only had 7 words at 15mos, BUT after having his MMR he lost all speech for a few wks & then only gained 5 of the 7 back! He graduated in 7/10, we're still ...working on math & writing but he'll start online college fall & go on campus when he's ready!! Luke had site reactions w/all vaccines but we did them up to the MMR. Zek's last vax were at age 4, Luke at age 15mos and Daniel has never had any vax. But we also feel Daniel has Asperger's & Luke has ADHD - all 3 had c-section births Zek's & Luke's vaccines were done in Anaheim, CA - 1992-1996
Renee Schwartz-Martinez My son was around 18 months as well the night before he was singing and dancing with my daughter. Several hours after receiving the MMR he would only sit in a chair almost comatose like swinging his ARM in circles and rocking. He is 9 now and everyday is a struggle for this innocent child. He was diagnosed at age 3 with Autism. Keaton received his vaccination in Batavia Illinois
Jenny Hunter Scott DTaP and MMR were both given at the same time when my son was one year old. He immediately has seizures, fever and high pitched screaming. He is seven years old and was diagnosed with autism at 15 months Vaccines were administered in Columbus, Ga.
Sandra Sea After Hep B shot soon after birth went from high apgars and good colour to high heart rate, high respiration rate, decreased body temp, then fever, had to have supplemental oxygen.....Went from well nursery to NICU then to another hospital. Started on IV's. Screamed until hoarse and cried continuously. NICU nurses amazed that he did not sleep and appeared so dysregulated and stayed that way took 3 weeks before his 6th birthday to get an Asperger's diagnosis. He regresses and gains abilities. My child has severe sensory modulation disorder, Asperger’s , dyspraxia, speech dysfluency, delayed echolalia, Bipolar 1 with psychosis, developmental coordination disorder, dyslexia, dysgraphia, incredible math abilities, hyperacusis, sings on pitch, loves music, composes music, is a perfectionist, very phobic of germs and strangers.
Jannelle Sealey My son Jaden was reaching all his milestones, and was developing above average. By one yrs old he was speaking about 15 -20 words in English a few in spanish and a few in Hawaiian. He was walking and on his way to be toilet trained. When he... was brought in for his one yr old shots we noticed things starting to change, he was more lethargic, very cranky and irritable. He was always constipated. It wasn't until we brought him in for himk MMR ar 18 mos. that things went out of control. An hour after the shots he had a seizure, he was then screaming an unbearable scream, he was obviously in severe pain. The DR. told us to meet him at the ER, when we got there they did a colonoscopy on him. He had a bowel obstruction. They gave us medicine and told us he would be fine in the morning. Well, morning came after a whole night of peircing screamind. NO BOWEL MOVEMENT! They gave us more medicine, he finally went, but he was very constipated. This is when I said to his dad, "Hey, I know he's been sick but have you noticed Jaden hasn't said a word to us"? We both thought this very odd. We started talking to him, asking questions abd he would just stare at the light above. He stopped speaking. Also, we didn't really notice at the time because we were holding him at the ER, but when we got home he could no longer walk, he started crawling again. At feeding times (I was breast feeding) He would scream and push me away. He could no longer play with his toys the way he use to. He couldn't even pick them up. His gross and fine motor skills were useless. My baby was gone! Now, Fast forward about 2 yrs later. After biomedical and dietary changes, he is speaking again! Thank you God! His speech is slow and laboured, but he can communicate. Things are coming back. Autism is treatable! So that's my son's story in the short version. lol. We are all behind you Dr. Wakefeild! Please keep up your amazing work! Kula, Hawaii
Gina Lee Searle The day after Kenzies 2 mth shots he had breathing difficulties.We took him to the hospital,where he had an oxygen monotor,and a 5 day hospital stay. I was not asked if he recieved vaccines recently,nor did I think to tell them. They could ne...ver offer an explanation for what happened,after lots of tests. At 6 months old I knew he had autism. He had tons of ear infexctions, and several "bronciolitis"issues. It took me until he was 4 to get up the nerve to confirm what I already knew those initial two dates. The vaccine,and the hospital stay. Halifax Nova Scotia
Becky Davenport Sebek My son was developing age appropriately until his 18 month old immunizations; sensory, flapping, tip toe walking, language delays, ADHD, ODD, and bowel issues are some of the changes to my son. Lake Cormorant, MS, USA
Sophia Seed Hi, i have a nearly two year old little boy, who at the age of two months had a bad reaction to his vaccines, he literally screamed nonstop for weeks and within 24 hrs broke out with a strange blister type rash on his face that spread at an alarming rate. I obviously visited my doctor many times, and even took myself to our local hospital and also Alder Hey, we kept being told it had nothing to do with the vaccines and were prescribed antibiotics. My doctor and Health Visitor at the time pushed me to give the next vaccine, to which i stupidly got pushed into doing, and again within 48 hrs my sons face had blistered, after many more visits to doctors and the hospitals he was prescribed more antibiotics, at this point my poor son had been on antibiotics nonstop for 6 weeks, he carried on screaming nonstop, he was soley breastfed every 15mins to which he couldn’t even drink more than a mouthful at a time, i then demanded a different Health Visitor who took one look at my son and rushed him straight to the hospital with suspected meningitis, he was extremely swollen, which looking back at photo's i can see now, he truly looked awful, It took my son a further week in hospital and several mis diagnosis along with intravenous antibiotics (flucloxacillin) to finally be diagnosed with Liver failure, we were then rushed to Birmingham Children’s hospital, for the next two months whilst he was treated. After his Liver had regenerated we then discovered his Pancreas had stopped working My Sons Pancreas now does not work at all and he has to have Micro Creon to digest his food. I would just like to point out my son was 100% healthy before vaccines and antibiotics! UK
Rachel Semmens-Beech Have video evidence of my son at 2 and then at 3 after having MMR Vaccine - extremely obvious difference from an active, talkative child to non verbal, no eye contact and under active! Diagnosed Aspergers
Melissa Isaac Sexton My son was four when he got his four yr old booster. A perfect four yr old in every way . Two days after his shots he had a seizure, woke up from that stuttering and a big loss in his motor skills. We were sent to specialist in Augusta GA and we were told he was had PPD NOS and Aspergers Syn. He is 11 now is highly functional but he still has Autism when he was perfect before the shot!!!!
Tawana Seymore My son 15months developed high fever convulsion hospitalized 3days. Became nonverbal and bowl problems. Not vaccinated in last 5yrs he is now verbal and doing well in school. I live in Bx NY
Melissa Barclay Shaffer It is so very sad that our children are suffering. I try not have hatred in my heart , but these drug companies and the CDC really have me feeling it. The scarything for me was, this past summer I detoxed Mikayla with HMD (heavy metal detox).She made remarkable improvements!!! Then wen her preschool started back up, she got a couple more shots, one being DTP. On the third day after the shots,all progress had made with her was GONE!!!!! That is when it finaly hit me that it is the shots thatare screwing her up. I informed the doctor. I was advised that if I was not going to vaccinate her aymore that we could no longer be a patient there!!!!!!!! OMG, how furious I still am about that. How dare you try to force me to harm my child! I mean seriously, if I told the doctor I gave Mikayla a cocktail of formaldehyde, mercury, aluminum and other junk, they would call child protective services on me yet, that is exactly what they are shooting into our kids with the vaccines. I just had a new baby boy who will not be vaccinated at all. I am horrified since mikayla has autism. I pray to God Kennedy doesnt suffer with this too. I figure I lessen the chances if he is not vaccinated.
Diana Paige Sheeks I switched pediatrician's after my daughter was placed on antibiotics for the majority of her first 18 months of her life for eye infections! After my first biomedical conference on autism, I called the original ped's office and requested ...my child's records, saying I was concerned about vaccine induced autism. They did not send me all the records, or even close to a complete file, only a vaccine schedule. I wanted to see the correlation of vaccines being given during times of lowered immune functioning. Thanks for rmeinding me of this. I forgot all about it and I am going to request the full file one more time. Granted she is now 17, but still...I am just far more informed, and sadly, forgot about it once we hit the world of autism with not one child, but two. Now I think they were afraid of lawsuit. not much was out there at that time.
Drew Lambert Sheldon My daughter was already having issues with not liking, being around people besides my mom and I, issues with getting overstimulated easily, but at 18months was given an extra DTap by mistake and got really sick and over the next yr her issues with sensory and anxiety got worse. Fort Carson Colorado
Brande Shelton My son received his 2yo shots about a month late he was given dtap, hep b, flu , mmr i believe was 4th shot. in cape coral, florida. its so true it takes a team to raise my son. weve only known for about 2 months. neurologist says its genetics we r supposd to do mri, eeg and for what? Sorry forgot to say for one week after vaccine he had gastrointestinal problems loose diarrhea. lost words screams that will pierce ur ears and tantrums.
Angela Shields Son had MMR at 15 months, within hours had extreme temperature, screamed all night, became non-verbal, suffers bowel problems, severe sensory dysfunction, continues today (Bromley).
Christine Shirley My grandson was a very hyperactive little baby, and extremely intelligent. He had his first grand mal seizure within 24 hours of having his triple antrogen vaccination at around the age of 21 months and was hospitalised. Brain scan did not show up epilepsy, so he was set for MRI which revealed a physical abnormality on frontal lobe. As the years went on he has been diagnosed with Adhd, Epilepsy, Autism, Tourrettes and a language disorder both expressive and receptive. He was fit and well prior to the first grand mal seizure, and we are convinced this was brought on by his triple antrogen. Australia
Beatrice Shook My son started to show problems from the vaccines after his 2 month shots, but it was when he got the MMR,Chicken Pox vaccine and the flu shot that he regressed the most and started to show more and more signs of autism. He has a diagnosis of PDD-NOS. How he reacted- he got eczema right after his two month vaccinations. Gross motor activities were delayed and he demonstrated slow but progressing speech. After the chicken pox vaccine, MMR and flu shot his language stopped, he wouldn't respond to his name, he stopped being happy and he was withdrawn from the world. He didn't learn to crawl until he was 13 months old and didn't walk until he was 21 months old. The vaccines were administered in McMurray, PA.
Angela Short We discovered in 2001 when my son was in early intervention preschool that he and another boy in his class (both exhibiting the same autistic symptoms) were actually born on the SAME day May 3, 1998,and visited the SAME pediatrician's office for well baby check ups and vaccines. This means that they were likely recieving vaccines within days of each other and likely the combination of manufacturers/vials/lots. Both boys symptoms presented identically and both ended up being diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. The boys were like carbon copies of each other in those early years. However, our son's symptoms have since disappeared after ceasing vaccinations and following biomedical treatments. Our son attends a public school with minimal support. Unfortunately the other boy's parents continued to vaccinate and were not open to biomedical intervention and his symptoms progressed and he is presently non-verbal. Another interesting tidbit! Prior to the start of our son's autistic-like symptoms in 2000 I recieved a phone call from a representive at the CDC who was in our town investigating children who had recieved vaccines from a particular lot which caused many children to become sick. Whe she called she said that my son recieved a vaccine from lot in question and was inquiring about any stomach illnesses or gastric distress he may have experienced around that time. Since I could not immediatley recall him being ill around that time, she asked me to check his medical records for any sick visits with the doctor or prescriptions from that time and that she would call me back at the end of the week to see what I'd discovered. When she called back I told her that I'd found nothing and she closed the investigation on him. I inquired about this investigation then at my son's next pediatician visit, however none of the nurses or doctors knew anything about it and didn't seem concerned. It was within a few months after that phone call that his autistic-like symptoms began to occur. Beaver County Pennsylvania
Helen Shupe Noel My son became a different person and I lost all hope. I’m from Columbus, Ohio
Mohammad Siddiqui I am a father of a beautiful girl, who was developing and beating her monthly developmental marks. I consulted doctors and highly educated friends in regards to vaccines and they all said it was ok and that the claims are false. after giving my daughter HIb and polio vaccine, she has stopped talking, she is now 5 months old. her vaccine was given to her at 4 months as I wanted to delay it. the doctors recommended to start her at 2 months. I miss her talking to me and laughing with me ...she has started doing that back again but it seemed to me that she took a step back after vaccination. I am putting off vaccines till she is 2 years old.
Tara Simon my daughter also was very friendly always laughing big smile always. then at 15mths the Doctor insisted she have the MMR. My daughter has never been the same. Autism began within a week of MMR. She was lucky it’s not as bad as some, but she has a fear of others. heart breaking. Beaumont, Texas
Dawn Simone My son's autism. He had a seizure 2 weeks after receiving his 6 mo vaccines, DTP/DTaP, HIB & pneumococcal, because of the time delay and lack of a fever, this was not attributed to the vaccines? There was crankiness a couple days but no developmental delays or regression after the seizure. At 12 months he had his MMR, pneumococcal & polio, he had no noticeable seizure but did regress some. At 15 months he had DTP/DTaP, HIB & varicella after this vaccine he VERY noticeably & rapidly regressed. Oh and he is almost fully recovered with biomed treatment. These vaccinations took place in Harrisburg, North Carolina
Cynthia Singleton We delayed vaccines in my until he was 13 months. He got sick at the first round. The second round (at 19 months) he severely reacted to DPTa with high fever, vomiting and diarrhea within 8 hours of the shot. The doc did not report our call to him at 2 am in the morning nor the reaction to VAERS. Now my son is slowly emerging from autism. . . doing regular curriculum in 6th mainstream with an aide. Houston, TX
Dawn Havas Sinisi Both of my children HEP B, MMR and continued regression after most vaccines, including the Flu. I regressed as an adult after MMR in 92 as well as Tetanus in 97, and annual flu vaccines. Just a few of the serious adverse reactions my children had suffered; and despite my children having an adverse reaction to their first vaccines the Pediatrician continued to vaccinate my children since I was continuously told by the Pediatricians "No, I don't think so, an adverse reaction is extremely rare" BS....not so rare. My children have suffered encephalopathy, seizures, prolonged and never ending extremely high fevers, rashes, unexplained illnesses, disseminated disease and bowel disease/leaky gut from the MMR, Gianotti-Crosti from the HEP B, as well as jaundice and Candida, anaphylaxis from the Vit K, given at birth which I now suspect also is reason for my daughters bleeding disorder (Van Willebrand) chronic nervous system dysfunction, food allergies; eggs, gluten, casien, seafood. Both of my children had spent the first 10 plus years of their life on their backs, unable to consistently attend school since it became a pattern esp. after each vaccine they continued to become much more sick and debilitated. I can't even count the amount of specialists who had evaluated my children and these specialists all continuously scratched their heads with no clue to why my children were such a mess/sick. I now have learned that there are millions of other children suffering as mine. Both of my children had also regressed into a diagnosis of autism. Carmel, NY
Jamie Sinnott In 1978 Jamie was 4 months old. He was a bright but colicky baby moving swiftly through all his development stages. His last achievement before his first vaccinationwas to use his foot to propel himself in a circle when on his blanket on the floor. As he was my third baby, I recognized that he was just about to learn to role over. At this point, Jamie received his DTP vaccine. Soon after he began to scream in extreme pain pushing at his head with his tiny fists. He lost all his development even the ability to hold up his head. Seven months later, Jamie was diagnosed with autism. At that time he was the youngest child the centre of excellence to which we brought him in Chicago had ever been able definitely diagnosed. Some years later, Jamie was classed as profoundly disabled. In 1994, Jamie received a flu vaccine. Within hours he was struck down with a vicious flu that recurred frequently over the next year even requiring hospitalization. Jamie entered a physical decline for three years. Eventually he was using a wheelchair and weighed 65 lbs, he is 5'5" tall, though he could not stop eating but was slowly starving to death. At this point, a gastroenterologist agreed to see him. He had major ulceration, reflux, and lymphoid hyperplasia of the terminal ileum. With this knowledge and that gained from AiA and DAN, we were able to reverse his physical decline and save his life. Today at 34, Jamie follows a strict diet and has an ABA program. He has gained skills and better health. Jamie cannot speak. He has epilepsy and continues to suffer from a bowel condition. He lives at home. He is still classed as profoundly autistic and intellectually impaired.
Tara Smith Sirianni My son had reactions to all of his vaccines, crying, fever, etc. But it was his 12 month shots that changed everything. He broke out in horrible hives for 4 days, then stopped talking and eating. He did not have an MMR yet. He is 3 now. The only new vaccine in the 12 month round of shots was the Hep A. Exton, PA
Cheryl Skinner Boston , Massachusetts, USA...MMR in 1984 @ age 15 months, all language skills ceased, appeared disoriented, confused, and gross motor skills impaired...dx'd 5 months later with Autism...Alan is now 27 yrs. old, limited verbal skills , seizures since age 17 yrs.old, functions between 3-10 years of age, depending on the task/skill. I am Alan's Mom, and I love him dearly.
Turiya Skull How can you tell which vaccines. I'm in africa. Jetted between Netherlands uk and south africa between my sons ages 1-2. We had various shots. Sometimes in 2 doses depending on the country. And different drug combinations. My son has no intrest in speech at all. He Is 6 moving from rospeedal ritlin and anti anxieties depending on the doctor.
Michelle Jackson Sledge Anthony was born typical, and a happy baby. When he was about 16 months old, I took him to get his shots, and he literally told me "no mommy, hurt..." I told him it was to keep him from getting sick. :( They gave him his vaccines, he cried, One of the vaccines were of coarse the MMR vaccine, and within 2 days he was sick. Ran a high fever, and seemed drunk. His voice left him then, he didnt speak after that. I hate myself for taking him to those monsters. Salem, Oregon
Amy Smith Newborn child turned red and broke out in a dripping sweat after Hep B shot and had to call nurses in.
Emma L J Smith My eldest son has aspergers. He had the men c vaccine and at 18months old came down with meningicocol septeceamia ( doubt i spelt that right) it was the men c strain he came down with. Have no idea if that contributed in anyway to his having aspergers or not but my other 3 kids havent had the vaccine. I figured what was the point in vacinating them when they catch it anyways? thats my opinion on that vaccine.
Holly Smith My daughter was develping normally learning how to walk and saying a few words.. she got the MMR shot, and began degressing rapidly.. stopped trying to walk and talk.. began the head banging, hand flapping, temper tantrums..she is now 5 and... says a few words here and there but cannot communicate what she needs. she points to things and brings them to me when she wants something to drink , eat etc. She got her vaccination in garland texas..
Jody Smith My son Tristan was a normal baby, growing well on his Wic charts. I took my son in for a few vaccines and found out he was behind on them, so the dr. insisted that he needed to catch up, I told dr. to space them and she refused...I should have walked out with my son. The dr. said he will be fine, nothing wrong with the vaccines, she told me. Well my son received the MMR, Hep/b&c, Dtp and a few others at the sometime and he’s now non communicative, no critical survival skills, on Social Security and needs constant supervision. I believe, the vaccines had a hand in my sons disabilities. Tested my genes and it came up negative...he was not born with autism.
Kathy Fincher Smith I have six children (all vaccinated at every stage) and only 1 has Autism...I don't know that that tells you anything or how that helps...but that is the truth. I honestly don't feel that vacination has antyhing to do with it. Otherwise...I think my percentage would be a lot higher. That of course...is just my opinion
Laura Smith MMR was given at 13 months to my son.(now 4yrs old) He was poorly and regressed - he stopped talking and it took him over 2 yrs to say 'mama' again. Leon then has the pre sch booster(not mmr - the other one) and we were shocked at how poorl...y he was afterwards. Fever, high pitch cry, he was so distressed and unhappy, we have decided (with medical advice) never to vaccinate both our sons again. We had tests prior to mmr pre sch booster and both are immune anyway, but it broke our hearts to see the regression and ill health again. our youngest (2 yrs old) was not poorly with vaccine at 13 mnths but his temperament changed over night, from happy and content to irritable and grouchy. he has imitation delay and severe language delay, would not hug/hold me as a baby but since about 16mnths he is very loving and happy and sociable, which i'm so pleased with because it was not looking good at the beginning. our specialist dr said some children seem to be super sensitive to vaccine, and for our boys not to have any more as they react so badly. Rugby, warwickshire, UK
Noah Smith Noah was developing normally up until 19 months. He was talkative, loved reading books and slept like a rock. He had his 1.5 yr check-up and was administered the MMR vaccine. I was instructed to give tylenol prior to the shot as well as after in order to ease any discomfort. Within a week Noah stopped napping and using certain words. At 25 months, Noah was put under for an upper GI and by the very next day he was almost completely mute. When handed a book Noah no longer knew what to do and simply glanced at the back cover and threw it to the ground. At 27 months, Noah was administered the flu shot via mist. That night he refused to sleep in his bed and has been sleeping on the floor ever since. Within a week of the shot, Noah began hand flapping and spinning in circles. Noah was diagnosed with ASD, Language Delay, and Sensory Integration Disorder at 30 months. All vaccines were administered in Culpeper, VA and GI was done in Charlottesville, VA.
Sharon Smith Two sons reacted to 2nd dose DTAP one was unresponsive, floppy and rash by day 4 was hospitalised, other son developed siezures up to 8 a day, personality changed to being aggressive and disinterested but both now ok after no further vaccines.
Susan Smith There is no doubt in my mind that vaccines hurt my 17 year old son at the age of 18 months. He was progressing normally until his 18 months immunizations and then he was gone. He stopped speaking, started avoiding have any interactions with his siblings, and generally became unreachable. Vaccines were administered in St. Francisville, LA via the health department
W Smith My son received his vaccines which were delayed at around 15 months old. After that he stopped eating and screamed a lot. Frequent night waking’s, screaming and seemed to always be in pain. He is 3.5 now and still barely eats and is underweight. He just doesn’t eat., His speech slowed down to and still, is hard to understand. He hasn’t got autism he has vaccine damage. Before this he was feeding himself with a spoon from 8 months, ate anything and everything. My sister was much worse off and speech never came on with her and is in a special needs school, from being a normal toddler too. I wish I never done it. I ignored my gut feeling. My youngest will not be getting any of it. Vaccines are banned from our house, too much damage already.
Valerie Smith-Brosey My son is 4. He went non verbal at 18 months and wanted no contact with people and no eye contact and did alot of receptive spinning after he got his mmr shots. He received them in elizabethtown pa
Naomi Smith-Long My son Hayden was affected by the mmr he received it in 2007 in Redondo Beach CA He developed fine hitting his milestones he had stomach issues with formula and always had a cold prior to getting the vaccine but otherwise he was fine. He talked early and lost his words overnight he went into his own world all overnight I still remember the last thing he said to me and it was about 2 months after his mmr and he had stopped talking with only a word hear and there he looked at me we were in a small thrift store and he said Hi and that was the last time he said anything verbally to me. He is a happy boy who has autism and at 2 suffered from a stroke and was then diagnosed with mild right side CP all after the mmr.
Sadie Smith-West 2 month round of vaccines: 4 days later- fever, constipation, distended abdomen, full body rash. We live in Joliet, ill Sadie Smith-West Current health: weakened immune system, chronic sinus infections, and gastrointestinal issues.
Alex Snelgrove Born in 1991, with Apgars of 6 and 10, my son reacted to all his shots with fever, irritability and swelling at the injection site. After his third series, he had a severe local reaction, slept for 17 1/2 hours, and had a twenty-minute seizure. He became miserable, and couldn't sleep or relax without jack-knifing backwards. He was no longer our happy, smiling, babbling baby. By 12 months, he appeared to have recovered. According to his Developmental Record, he had always had a 'very good' to 'excellent' profile, but was miserable after his shots. However, six weeks after his vaccine boosters at 24 months, the nurse documented that he had lost significant language, and had a gastrointestinal infection (diarrhea, which lasted until he was 7 when it was properly treated by an alternative medical practitioner). His eating and sleeping behaviors changed, just as they had before - he was awake all day and most of the night - and three months later, his normal eye contact and speech were gone, and although he appeared deaf to voices, he had become hypersensitive to music and normal environmental sounds, covering his ears and screaming. He refused to be comforted or cuddled, and he became violent and aggressive, lashing out at anyone who invaded his space. He has collected a number of labels over the years, among them: Kanner's Syndrome, Asperger's Syndrome, Developmental Aphasia, Dyspraxia, Central Auditory Processing Disorder, Semantic-Pragmatic Disorder. He also has mild hearing loss. None of his adverse reactions was documented or reported to the proper authorities because they were deemed normal or insignificant by the medical profession. Their response to my concerns at the time was to give him Paracetamol. His claim for vaccine injury compensation in 1997 was declined because they said, "Autism is not caused by vaccines". (New Zealand)
Terra Boulton Soileau Baton Rouge, La. My daughter born on Aug. 10 1995. She developed normally actually above average. She started showing signs of regression when she was two and half. She had the chickenpox vaccine the first year it came out. And all of the other infant cocktail shots they started making around the same time. I am friends with a mother that went has a child the same age went to the same doctor and had the same lot of shots and is autistic too.
Jean Somers-Barton My grandson Austin was effected by vaccines in the following way...1st insult to injury was the day we brought him home from the hospital (@ days old) and with in 45 minute we were calling an ambulance because he was throwing up and it was also coming out his nostrils and we could not get a clear air wave this again would happen numerous times throughout his 1st yr of life. Fast forward to his last set of vaccines.including the mmr on top of the 4 addtional vaccines Austin received that day. By midnight same scenario, calling 911 about midnight for same reaction as listed above. Within that month Austin was to the er 3 more times, now on nebulizer tubes in ears, lost all speech, no eye contact stimming started etc. This is a boy who had never been sick, was on track developmentally. He now has an immune system that attacks itself (mmr living inside his small intestine) extreme GI tract issues etc. I am not against all vaccines but when will our gov understand that we are giving too many at one time. When we are introducing foods to our infants we do it one at a time. Why? to make sure there are no allergic reactions but yet we are willing to let our infant receive 5,6 7, 8 , or even 9 vaccines at 1 time You don't think our gov has ever done any type of research to see the possible side effects of the interaction with these vaccine ...do you? I am so tired of it being said that with autism regression can set in anytime after 14 months, it follows the vaccine schedule!!!! For those on the outside do you really believe that you can bear a normal healthy and on track developmentally infant and without just CAUSE...THEY JUST REGRESS AND BECOME AUTISTIC!!! I KNOW AUSTIN WAS EFFECTED BY TO MANY VACCINES GIVEN AT ONE TIME! Thank YOU SO MUCH Joan FOR ALL THE TIME AND EFFORT YOU ARE PUTTING INTO THIS. YOU ARE MY GRANDSONS ANGEL!!! I really.really appreciate it!
Bei Song'e Autism-10Years ago MMR. I am from Nairobi Kenya and I have a nine year old Autistic Daughter who I strongly believe was as a result of the vaccine MMR given to her at 18months. In Kenya there is no way a child can be given in single doses, it is administered in a complete three in one. She is much better now is currently potty training, she walked at 2years and is non-verbal. She attends sch in a class that is special needs in a main stream school. I am greatful for this facebook page of Autism Mothers it has really helped me alot. Cheers and regards Stella
Rose Soriano I have a 10 old year autistic son. Although I noticed that he was developing a little slower and differently than one might expect, I also know that after having his MMR shot along with 3 other ones things aggravated further. At the age of 18 months he received these mentioned vaccines and remember expressing my concern to his pediatrician who brushed it off and tried to convince me not to worry so much, and that my son was just fine. Well, this is where I say "follow your motherly instinct" because I knew this wasn't right, at least for my child. Exactly 1 month later he had a bad febrile seizure and was hospitalized. Coincidence ? I don't think so, I noticed after that he stopped the babbling, his focus was gone, he was just different and seemed so lost. Two months later he was diagnosed with moderate autism. I know that the vaccines made things worse, but I can't prove it I just know it. Here in Texas there is a law that grants and acknowledges the right of parents to exempt their children from vaccination, I think that vaccines are the most money making pharmaceuticals out there having governments backing them and filling their pockets, and this is here in the US and other countries. So mother and fathers follow your instinct and do your research when it comes to vaccines.
Vicki Prillaman Sotack My son was vaccine injured in Powder Springs, GA in 2004. I know over 300 families with boys born that year who all have autism. It's horrible. The day I thought my son was getting the MMR, he ended up with 3 cocktails in each of the 3 syr...inges that I thought were M-M and R! He regressed from the 90% in weight and development to "failure to thrive" within 12 months. No refuting of the link can undo what happened to my child, regardless of whether or not our gov't comes clean on this. My child has REGRESSIVE AUTISM. He was normal at birth and met every developmental milestone on time, or early, up to that fateful day.
Christi Taylor Sowell My son had lots of words till after his first set of shots at 12 months old. He stopped babbling and using those words and retreated into his own world.
Jessica Spangler My son was born at home in May of 05 in Big Rapids, MI in a planned home birth. He was small but I thought it was genetic until he failed to eat and thrive and lost even more weight. He was hospitalized a week later severely jaundiced and with low tone, unable to eat. He was later diagnosed with cerebral palsy and I was diagnosed with pelvic/pubic symphysis dysfunction, both I believe to be caused by a car accident I suffered while pregnant. I went to a Big Rapids hospital while my son was taken to a Grand Rapids hospital. While there my husband was fear-mongered into allowing them to give him a hep-b shot, the only shot given between both my kids. Why give a 5 lb child with severe jaundice a vaccine for an std I did not have that also affects the already compromised liver? To this day I will never understand the logic. From that point he developed severe reflux and threw up every meal for a year (all were breastmilk I pumped). To this day he is allergic to foods in every category and cannot eat more than a handful of plain veggies, fruits, a couple gluten free grains, and chicken for a protein. If he eats anything else, latex foods, gluten, most other animal proteins, citrus, dairy, fish, legumes, nuts, etc etc he vomits for days, develops severe congestion, breaks out in bloody eczema rashes all over, etc. We have done a perfect chemical-free diet, herbs, chiropractic, allergy clearing techniques, hyperbaric oxygen, craniosacral therapy by a specializing do, etc and the allergies have never gone away. In my mind there is no reason for a brand new infant to develop such severe damage that quickly as to keep them from proccessing any foods unless they were exposed to a strong toxin. He is now the size of a toddler at 6 years old and though he is learning to walk he is cognitively years behind his age level, which may or may not be related to cp. I'll never know for sure. I am sure, however, that vaccines will never touch my kids again with a 10 foot pole.
Carole Sparks My wonderfully developing daughter regressed after her MMR shot--lost words, eye contact, and happiness. After her 18 month shots, she began intense stomach pain and dove deeply into autism. Terre Haute, In for the MMR, varicella, hep B, and Lexington, KY for the 18 month shots.
Heather Speight My son was speaking and nearly walking unto 18 months when he received mmr injections they give all 3 at once over here West Yorkshire united kingdom. He can't talk at all now hes six
Brandi Spencer My son was progressing normally, could speak, walking by himself at 13months and everything. His regression started between 18-24 month. He went from talking, to kind of talking, to screaming. Started walking into walks, wouldn't respond to... his name, began stimming. I didn't know what was going on...thought maybe it was his hearing...his hearing was fine. Took him to the doctor and just asked her to watch him walk...that's when she said he thought he was autistic and I took him to early intervention. He was 2 at the time...he'll be 6 in april and is now diagnosed as being severly autistic with a seizure disorder. I do feel the vaccines played a huge role in this, the MMR, and it was given to him in Raleigh, NC. The hardest part about it for me was watching him backside and being able to do nothing about. The only thing that helped his aggression was therapy and chiropractor care. Oh he is completely non verbal...just recently started using pecs
Colette Kelly Stack I think it was all of his vaccines but the breaking points was the MMR and the chicken pox vaccine, given on the same day. He started side glancing that night and stopped saying words. He has a hard time communicating and socializing. Vaccines administered Great Neck, Long Island NY.
Debbie Ludwig Stallings My son was progressing typically, after an immunization shot he had horrible diarrhoea, fever, ear infection, and stopped using his words. He then stopped playing and little by little stopped everything else he had accomplished. Bonneauville, Pennsylvania
Annette Stam HappyHippy my nephew had a horrific reaction to the 12month needle .. Terribly scarey we nearly lost him.. My daughter couldn't walk for days after the 9month one and was ill fevered etc after all of them and now appears none of them took - she's even had whooping cough tho she is fully vaccinated.. my son was ill after all of them and has still had many of the illnesses he's vaccinated against.. :( west wyalong nsw Australia and my nephews was boorowa nsw - he had to be treated in Canberra
Kevin Stanfa Jr. - had DTP booster and the meningitis shot, after asking the Dr to just do one and we would come back for the other later, he railroaded me into saying vaccines have NOTHING to do with autism, autism wasn't my concern since my son has had profound autism since about 2-3 years old and at this time he was 10. Within one hour of the shots he became very aggressive and exhibited signs of distress. He would over react to everything, it got gradually worse until about 2 months later he had a massive seizure, turned blue in my arms from not breathing. He is now treated for epilepsy and thankfully after about 18 months of major behavior issues that we think possible was him exhibiting pain, he is now back to his old happy self just now he takes medication twice a day to control his seizures. Neurologist recommends he not have any more vaccines but will not put it in writing for me so I have to claim whatever exemptions I need to claim to prevent him from having more. We did report to VAARS but basically just got a letter acknowledging that the reaction was registered. The Dr who gave the shots is located in Bridgeton, NJ.
Lisa Starita I don't think it's the MMR vaccine ALONE. I think it's more than one vaccine and it's some sort of allergy to the vaccines. I can't explain it here cause it's too long, but, if not an allergy, then it's some type of mental poisoning from the vaccines. My son showed signs before he was a year old. 3 of my children got vaccinated 3 different places: Hackettstown, NJ; Jersey City NJ; and Reading, PA
Cynthia Stark In Canada my perfect son Kieran fell critically ill immediately after his 12 month MMR vaccine and went mute, lost all eye contact and social play, and had GI problems - reflux & projectile vomiting and diarrhoea, much improvement at 12 years with DAN biomedical treatment and ABA, chatty and social, . and went mute for 10 months until the GF/CF diet at 20 months, when he looked me straight in the eyes and said the alphabet! At 30 months he went off soy too, started DMSA chelation & transdermal secretin and he said over 200 meaningful words the first month, began reading, and spoke in sentences within the next few months. He started the dairy free specific carbohydrate diet 2 yeas ago and all stomach pains have ceased. Today he's 12 1/2 and still diagnosed with autism. He shares a school aide with 2 other children in his integrated classroom. He does the school announcements, sings in the school choir, reads to younger classes, and loves going to movies, to camp, and to his tae kwon do lessons. ..but still has autism diagnosis.
Jennifer Rupley Stark Im from indiana.we left indiana and drove to the otherside of the US.to visit family.when we returned home are son was do for his 2 year check up and recieved some vaccines. within 2 months he started spinning objects,stimming,flapping his arms!! he then turned 3 and was diagnosed with developmental delay.put in are school system for special ed preschool program then before the school year was up he had the title"AUTISM"!
Beverly 'Seale' Staton The MMR shot, after that our son lost eye contact pretty much and stopped babbling and trying to talk. The GF/CF diet and fish oil helped improve everything but of course not all! It all happened at the hospital on Travis AFB in Cali.
Phaedra Steele I feel that my son's Autism is a result of the vaccines he's suffered. When he was born he was a healthy bouncing baby boy. By the time he had his shots up to 6 months of age I began to notice a lack of eye contact and his babbling had stopped. He had developed some words but after another round of shots his use of words disappeared and he began to stare off into space. I cannot claim that it was one shot over another as he often received more than one vaccine at a time. By 18 months of age my son had all the classic signs of autism, but I was still uneducated and did not look further into his development until he was about 2 years old and was not making his milestones as I was told that some children take a little longer to meet those milestones. Our doctor sent us to a specialist when he was 3 yrs old and we got our diagnosis, Autism. I did not report these as side effects as at the time I did not know about the possible link until a few years ago. I believe that there are many contributing factors to Autism, however I also believe that his shots are what pushed him into Autism and I have stopped vaccinating my children as a result. 49 vaccine shots in 60 months is too much. My son is now almost 10 years old and I've worked hard on his dietary needs and detoxifying his body with success and no prescriptions. He is high functioning and making progress everyday, but not all children are as lucky as my son. So for my son and all the other children like him out there I add my voice to this stand.

Danielle Steffe I was vaccinated for the flu in 2003 while pregnant with my daughter. Two days later, I developed Chronic Urticaria and Angioedema. Eight months later, after being administered the Hep B. Vaccine, my daughter developed chronic immune system dysfunction and an MRI revealing evidence of encephalitis. We were vaccine injured. The flu shot was at my GP at the advisement of my OB/GYN...The Hep B. was at the hospital whe she was 24 hours old and had slight jaundice. Doylestown, Pennsylvania

She also has abnormal eeg on medication for it. Didn't allow her to have the booster the doctor agreed and also said once you have it the first time you have the immunities , so why are they advising people to have the booster, money for the companies that make these injections Ousa O'Mara Connor 7/2/02, 7/11/02 Hep B (Indianapolis, IN) became lethargic and displayed low muscle tone. 8/5/03 MMR, Varicella (Pasadena, TX) developed fever and start of developmental plateau. 11/5/03 DPT, H.inflTypeB, Pneumococcal Conj, Flu (Pasadena, TX) developed fever and became more irritable. began to notice behaviors associated with foods.

Please let me know if you need any additional information. There is also another child (triplets) that did not receive all the same immunizations at the same time as his brother and sister, and he is not affected.
Janel Plunkard Stephey My son was born in 2004, and before I was "allowed" to be discharged after his birth, I was given a Rubella vaccination. I was breastfeeding. I've just recently learned that this should not be done. This occured in Frederick, MD. After he went for his 12-18 month vaccinations, his speech regressed and he stopped speaking for several months. Since then he has struggled greatly with articulation delays and various other communication issues. He also began displaying repetative behaviors during this time. These shots were given in Johnstown, PA. This past Summer, he was given his vaccinations required for school (we had delayed until this time, and I wasn't aware of exemptions avaible to us.) Within weeks, his behavior was out of control, he had increased hyperactivity and aggressiveness. These shots were given in Fairfield, PA. I can not pin-point specificly which shots were the culprits, as they were given simultaniously and as combinations.
Jessica Stevens First child: Prevnar at 9 mo old developed first ear infection within 2 days that led to 7 surgeries since, she has Pdd-Nos. Second child: Shut down at MMRs at 15 mo old, diagnosed at 18 mo with Autism. Also has Epilepsy. My third child reacted all three times he was vaccinated and we stopped doing them (birth, 2 mo and 4 mo) he's now almost 4 and developing on track and is not Autistic. We lived in GA at the time. And fyi--my son that reacted at birth, that's why I say most parents can't say it wasn't vaccines cause MANY kids are injected immediately after birth with HepB, or was..I think that's changed, but I've hears a lot of parents say it wasn't vaccines with their child but they got vaccinated at birth. You don't KNOW your child at birth to know if they are behind. I also firmly believe what prevented my youngest from developing Autism was because we stopped shots. At 4 mo his dr said he was "showing behaviors similar to his brothers at same age which we know now was Autism" and within 4-5 mo of being unvaccinated he came out of it.
Heidi Stevenson Son had DPT, arched back, high-pitched screaming, encephalitis, now 30 and schizophrenic. (Stirling)
Becky Carrier Stewart My daughter lost all eye to eye contact and started begin in her own little world at 12 months. My DUMB dr told me she will walk and talk and be normal by 24 months. Yea right!!!!! Did not walk till she was 36 1/2 months. And I;m ...still waiting to hear the pitter patter of her feet coming down the steps screaming mommie mommie. Yea still non-verbal. Oh but the Dr. said this to me. She is your last child she just lazy. That was at 4 years old. I wanted to slap the holy crap out of him. I new at 1 something was wrong. Cause my oldest daughter was talking at 10 to 11 mths. Waling at 1 year. Potty trained by 2. My youngest that is ASD. Still in diapers,eats with her hand,non-verbal. And refuses to let me feed her fights me to bath her . And I feel its all my fault. Statesville North Carolina
Benedetta Stilwell My two kids who are now in their late 20s.were vaccine injured. My daughter: Age 2 years old came down with Kawasaki's 6 weeks after her fourth DPT shot. Age 5 after her fifth DPT shot passed out, gasped for air, rapid breathing, 105 temp. All childhood shots were given in Bardstown, Kentucky. Her Childhood was full of stomach aches, throwing up, sinus infections, pneumonia, unexplained high fevers, depression, over the top moods, mad a lot. Age 25 after receiving her BS degree in biology she decides she wants to be a psych nurse. After the third Hep B she becomes stiff as she did with Kawasaki's disease. Medical test showed very high SED rates. This shot was given in Richmond, Kentucky. At age 27 her work place insisted on giving her a flu shot. This was Lexington, Kentucky. She begin to have extreme over the top mood, not sleeping, could not sleep, legs cramping. She finally had a psychotic episode and I found her cutting imaginary bot worms out of her arms. She is bipolar, probably always was since she Kawasaki's but not bad enough to be recognized until the flu shot sent her over the edge. My son: At age 2 months the DPT shot resulted in a very high temperature. A few days later the doctors found his left ventricle of his heart was swelled, becoming boot shaped, and an inflamed heart valve causing a heart murmur. At age 7 months the second DPT shot caused him to pass out with 105 temp, with rapid breathing. At age 10 months the third DPT shot caused a stroke six hours later, he was walking but stopped and had to relearn to walk. In the next several months he had to episodes of high fever with to grand mal seizures, and prolonged fever that was atypical Kawasaki's. Today: at age 25; he has PDD-NOS, tourettes, epilepsy. All of his shots were given in Bardstown, Kentucky. My husband is not a child, but he was also has a vaccine injury. After years of taking tetanus shots - at least 10 times by the age of 28 with no problems he suddenly reacted to one he received at his work place. A couple of hours after he got home he passed out and had seizures. At age 34, after he stepped on a nail, the doctors after operating on him, giving him a long course of antibiotics, after discussing vaccine reactions decided at the end of his treatment to give him a tetanus shot anyway. Three weeks later every muscle in his body hurt, heart palpitations, anxiety,. He was finally diagnosed with "Acquired Mitochondrial myopia. This vaccine was given at Bardstown, Kentucky.
John Stone Son received DPT at 2 months, went red down one side, developed high fever, high-pitched screaming. (London).
Elizabeth Stout My son Blake is 7, hyperlexic (ASD), and lost eye contact following his first vaccination at about 20 months (DTap, Arcata, Ca; thimerisol-free). He had begun to spell and could identify each letter and its sound. Then, he spent three years talking only about math and spelling. He could hardly communicate and had terrible tantrums. He has not had any more vaccines, and struggles daily with frustration ( crying and tantrums), but is a fantastic boy! People like Blake because he's different and knows so many interesting things. He's super smart! I am still too scared to vaccinate his siblings. Arcata, Ca
Tina Strickland My 11 yr old had 5 vaccines in one day, the catch up schedule at about 18 months old, and after that we watched our brilliant little boy regress. I know they say vaccines don't cause autism but I had a surprise baby 13 months ago and he won't get a single vaccine until much later in his life. I pray every day that my little baby is spared the pain we've watched our oldest son go through. We are in Oak Ridge, TN
Anne Strominger I've reported two cases reported to the CDC through VAERS. Our son's 4th dose of HIB was given at same time as Varicella in Fenton, Michigan. Note that these were the 14th & 15th vaccines he'd rec'd in his first year of life. Reaction wa...s high fever & rash lasting several days. Developmental regression immediate onset. Diagnosed "Infantile Autism" at 15 months old. No shots allowed by parents for next three yrs. At age 4-1/2, we allowed two more vaccinations, MMR & DTaP. Again he reacted with high temp & severe fatigue lasting 4-5 days. No further regression was noted, but we never allowed shots again! Today, our 6 yr old child is doing great with steady improvement. His developmental age is about 5 yrs!
Jill Strong My son was developing normally, eating anything, very strong in his legs ie he could even pull himself up to a standing position at age 3 months. He had his 12mth mmr needle late at 16mths. After that he was alive in body but not in soul an...d I watched him digress. He wouldnt eat, he wouldnt stand up, he wouldnt vocalise, he wouldnt make eye contact. My son had his needles at Werribee, a suburb of Melbourne Australia. Today he has the classic autistic tag. He is very fussy, super sensitive to noise, and mentally delayed in all learning aspects. Limited vocabulary and comprehension. But he has the wickedest sense of humour after tackling this with so much love laughter and happiness.
Kerri Stulce Helmick Kameron damaged Sarasota Florida. We did all the treatments finally 6 mercapto purine worked with Dr Kriegsman continue your work it healed his gut. After 7 years of intensive biomedical treatments as well as necessary meds he has been mainstreamed for almost 3 years
Dana Cooke Sturdivant My son was perfectly normal, until his last set of shots at 16 months, which included the HIB shot. My son developed a 105 fever, which lasted for days to come. He lost all fine motor skills, lost all of his communication, all his words were lost, gone. He began looking at the ground, shadow playing at his high chair, popping his jaw back and forth. He developed complex partial seizures, encephalopathy. After, spending several hundred thousands on alternative therapy at age seven we are finally hearing language, again and slowly getting him back after years of fighting for him non-stop
Laura Stutz My son was 16months old when he received the MMR, DTaP and HIB all in 1 day. He slowly drifted away into "autism", brain damage, ulcerative colitis and more. 9 years later... still barely verbal w/ raging meltdowns, + "autism". Indiana
Karen Suddaby My sons problems started after his DDP shot he developed 3 month colic over the next few days his system was never the same he produced green smelly poo’s and screamed all the time for hours on end then he had his first MMR which I did not want to give him but my doctor said I was putting him in danger so I did. Any language he had stopped and he went inwards. It appeared as if he was deaf, he then began to line up boxes and screamed when anyone stopped him. At 2 and a half, the doctor wanted him to have his booster of his MMR. A week later he developed meningitis. No more injections for him. Today he is a lot better because of many interventions but now has developed seizures. I wish he had never had any of these injections. UK
Diana Sue Lost ability to nurse after hep b at one day old... constantly sick as an infant who got shots on schedule. screamed all day after getting 12 mo shots, incl. MMR. DX'ed delayed at 18 mo. He did the 12 and 15 month shots together, I think, when my son was his patient. At least, I know for sure we got mmr and varicella at the 12m appt. who told us that we couldn't be in his practice unless we vaccinated, and who vaccinated earlier than the schedule recommended. And, I thought my son had a fever for the 12 mo shots and he looked at the records and saw the nurse wrote down that he didn't and he proceeded. Austin, Texas by Dr. Dawson
Nicole Sugrue I feel strongly my son, who is now 12, was in some way injured with his vaccine. He was 22 mos old and we live in long island ny (nassau county). I am a co founder of a behavior analytic program, which my son, happens to not attend , since he can function in a regular public school, special ed setting. But if you go to our website, I do tell a short story about him (as well as others talking about our organization)
Katherine Sheehan Sullivan My son had a very high fever, vomiting for two weeks, became non verbal with no eye contact, bowel problems, feeding issues, and did not want to be touched after MMR and Flu shots at age one. Methuen, MA
Lisa Perez Sullivan I have two boys on the autism spectrum. My third son who is 3 hasn't received any shots. He's the only typical child out of 3 boys. No shots no autism. My 2nd son had an obvious regression after receiving mmr and a few other combo shots given at the same visit. He lost speech lost eye contact. We lost him. Not making the same mistake again.
Wendy Sullivan My son Keegan: The vaccine was the MMR, give in Hurst, TX. Keegan regressed into Austism. Had been a very happy, healthy infant until 13 months. Started with sinus infections, chronic ear infections, eczema on the face. Projectile vomitting of milk. Loss of skills by the age of 3 years and seizure activity started at that age. Had no idea it was the vaccines, so he got his boosters at 4 and we then saw another huge loss of skills and increase in aggressive, dysfunctional behavior. Keegan has seen Dr. Krigsman and has been diagnosed with lymphoid nodular hyperplasia. Keegan has had a lot of difficulty in the last year. Meds to help treat the seizures caused increase in behaviors to the point he was violent and unsafe. He is currently at The Chileda Institute in LaCrosse Wi receiving intense therapy and schooling. Keller, TX
Elizabeth Summ My son Elliott was always quiet and a bit withdrawn, but after his 6 month and 18 month MMR he spent about a week with terrible putrid diarrhea, all over his legs, crib at night, etc. I was ignorant of all this information on autism/vaccines then, and I really kick myself now. He is now 3.5 and was recently diagnosed with non verbal autism. He screams everyday when upset. I will never vaccinate a child again. These shots were administered in Rockford, Il
Vanessa Surprise My amazing boy had slow regression from 12-15 months after receiving his mmr at 12 months. he is making great strides because of biomedical treatment and all his other therapies
Madeleine Susio Daughter Sofia had 12 vaccinations at age 3 months, and had severe eczema and constipation. Now age 2.5 years, eczema is controlled using hydroquatioze cream, and constipation controlled with Movicol, and now a strong probiotic. Have refused MMR. (Surrey)
Bethany Sutton Now age 10, no speech, screams in pain for up to an hour, incontinent (Staffordshire)
Tammy Swarek Matthew Ryan cook. El Dorado, Arkansas. 9-17-97. Matthew had reactions to all of his vaccines, increasing in severity each time. They included extreme swelling high fevers, rashes, crying, illnesses, infections. After the MMR he also lo...st all of his speech along with the other symptoms, ear infections, strep, his body was attacked. At 7, he developed bowel disease that took a year to diagnose leaving him in agony that drove him to tear the skin off of his fair face. It took that long to find a dr to even look at him. 5yrs later it has moved to his brain, same inflammatory process that caused his bowel issues, now causing psuedotumor cerebri. We spent 4 months in the hospital in Houston, 13 spinal taps, now monthly ivig to save his life ..forgot about the seizures....
Ellen Trevelise Sweeney 13 yr old Son-1st year vaccines loaded the gun, MMR pulled the trigger at 13 months...diagnosed with Autism n ADHD n using some biomedical interventions-Brick Township, NJ USA
Adam & Jennie Sweet Our son Bradley was born a normal alert baby, he scored perfect on every test at the hospital. He hit every developmental milestone right as he should have and was even saying mama dada baba and those things long before our friends daughter who was born a couple of months before him. He was loving and effectioniate, he would smile everytime you pointed a camera at him and would laugh when he was happy. At 12 months old Bradley could walk, and loved to talk and had a knowledgable vocabulary of about 6 words. He would talk to his daddy on the phone and say dada the whole time. About 2 weeks after Bradley's 1st birthday he had his one year old check up and got the shots a 1 year old normally gets I dont have an exact list on hand. Slowly you could see a severe change in Bradley, he became distant and was like he was in his own little world. He would just walk around the whole day almost as if in a daze. He no longer was effectioniate and loving. He no longer talked just babbled. He had no interest in people around him, he lost all eye contact, and all response to others and communication. At 18 months old he was diagnosed with Autism. Since his downfall he has come a long way but still is not the little boy he once was. He is more loving now and occasionally tries to help with things like washing or dressing, and at times will try to show you what he wants. He shows more interest in things and people around him then a few months ago. The end of July is Bradleys 2nd birthday and he will be due for his 2 year check up and vaccinations. I cant say for sure or prove that vaccinations caused my sons autism but after what I saw happen after his 1 year and 18 month check ups I wont be allowing them to vaccinate him until he is much older if ever!
Alicia Swiney-Bartley My son, was talking and saying words until after his 1st birthday! Then he just quit talking, I think it was due to vaccines! He was diagnosed at the age of 2, he is now 3 and in school. He is doing so much better! pike county, ky.
Rebecca Kaye Swinger-Barnes My son regressed soon after the mmr shot. It took years for the diagnosis of hypogammaglobulinemia (many Drs refused to draw blood from an autistic) and precocious puberty. After IVIG treatments, Lupron and supplements he is better, but he has been on the SCD for 5 years and suffers greatly. His whole body is full of inflammation. We have kept him out of an institution but he is severely disabled. We are lucky that he is very loving and affectionate. Heyworth, IL (Central IL)
James Swinnerton Given MMR even though he had Downs Syndrome, now has unmanageable behaviour, diagnosed with autism (Tibberton)
Kelly T. - DPT at 2 months old My daughter, Kelly, had her DPT, Polio, Hep B and Haemophilus b Conjugate inoculations at 2 months old. The night of those shots she woke screaming, and we could not console her. The on-call doctor said to give her more Tylenol, which we did. She went back to sleep, ultimately. When it was time for her next DPT shot, the doctor gave her the shot without Pertussis, along with other inoculations. Kelly has Attention Deficit Disorder today. Vaccinations given in Portsmouth, NH, USA
Peggy T Hepatitis B at 24 hours old Matt nursed well at the hospital. Before leaving the hospital, Matt got the Hep B vaccine. After we got home, Matt had progressively more difficulty nursing. He spit up at almost every feeding. He slept so much. On his third day well-visit to the Pediatrician, the doctor was “visibly alarmed” because Matt had lost weight and was starting to become jaundiced. He recommended that I wake Matthew on a schedule to feed him. I did that, and started pumping breastmilk. By the end of that week we were feeding him with an eyedropper. He seemed to rally, luckily. We decided to feed him with a bottle at that point, to make it easier for all of us. I chalked the whole problem up to “nipple confusion”. Years later I would read about the study on primates after being given the same Hep B series my children received, and the failure to suck that occurred as a result. After his 3rd shot in the Hep B series, at 9 months of age, Matt started looking at things with his peripheral vision. Like an idiot, I never suspected the shots. Matthew went on to get all his vaccinations on schedule. Matthew was quite delayed by 2.5 years. He had Early Intervention, and was diagnosed with Pervasive Developmental Disorder – Not Otherwise Specified at age 3, but it’s truly Autism. Matt started having seizures as a teenager and is on seizure medication. Vaccinations given in Portsmouth, NH, USA
Amanda Tavener Pymouth uk 13 months 2 weeks after having mmr went off all foods and lost speach again when he had booster mmr regressed further hes 5 in august has no speach little understanding and eats same thing every day now my youngest is due the mmr now im reluctant to let him have it my son attends a great school for serverly disabled children i dont believe mmr caused his autism i think it contributed to the way he is today
Ginger Taylor Los Angeles 2002. My three week old son
reacted to the Hepatitis B vaccine with three months of fevers and crying, and
two years of constipation (until the GFCF diet). At 18 months he got Hep B,
DTaP, Polio, Pnumo, and HIB, lost eye contact, stopped answering to his name,
stopped talking (except for two phrases, uh oh, and all done, met the
description of "vaccine encephalopathy" in the VICP table, but was
diagnosed with "autism".
Jill Taylor Son Ali within 6 hours of MMR had high-pitched crying, fever, rash, very swollen neck glands, loss of eye contact, speech, communication and understanding, onset of epilepsy, all within 9 weeks of MMR. Was happy/healthy before (at 19 months), became glazed expression/unhappy. Now 13 years old, Semantic Pragmatic Disorder, ASD, high anxiety. (Preston)
Julie Taylor Hi my daughter is now 3 and is uner going assesment for autism, we feel that the vaccenations are the reason for her problems she was fine as a baby until thease, i feel that an issue with thease vaccenations is that they give them so many ...at once, one time she had 1 in one leg and 2 in the other surerly that cant be good for a young childs emune system to take in, and mixing chemicals, they seem to think my daughter has ADHD and shes showing symtoms of autism but its not comfirmed as yet, yet my lil boy whos one has had these injections and is fine hes showing no problems at all, i feel its like a lottery with with thease injections
Kenneth Taylor My girlfriends daughter received an MMR at 12 months in Concord, New Hampshire. Within days she withdrew from the world and stopped talking, babbling, laughing, failing to recognize or acknowledge even her mother. She was diagnosed a year later with classic Autism. Today she is high functioning but is socially awkward with other children, highly sensitve/emotional , and is still stimming but stunning. Concord New Hampshire
Simone Taylor Son Thiago, before MMR very happy clever child, after MMR vomiting and temperature of 42 every 2-3 weeks for 2 years, loss of cognition, eye contact and non-verbal skills. Now diagnosed with moderate to severe autism (Croydon)
Adrianna Teel My son was injured by the MMR vaccine. He was normal untill about a week after the vaccine. He had lost all of his words, interest of the world around him, eye contact and much more. We began dietary intervention, chelation and supplements and 4 yrs later we are doing much better, eye contact, speech and more. Still not like before but much better. Thank you for listening! Houston, Texas.
Gregory Telford Beautiful baby boy born 10/11/2006, 10 days overdue and a whopping 9lbs 6oz. Perfectly healthy in everyway. Got his 1st shot at 2 months old which was a 5 in plus 2 other separate shots on the same day. Nevertheless he developed normally and met all his milestones walking and talking on time. Bright as a button. By 13 months he had been given 25 different vaccines and the last ones he got were the MMR and Prevenar in one day. Ironically / prophetically it was recorded in his little red book on the day of the last vaccine "samuel was not himself today". He stopped developing and we made all the usual excuses. He has some serious episodes of diarhea but we never linked the 2 events. He stopped answering to his name. He started to line stuff up. He would flap his hands. He would flick his fingers in front of his eyes. He would echo and script his fave dvds. We suspected something was up but hoped and prayed it would pass. He got referred for speech therapy and the 2nd visit he got referred to a paediatrician. For me the fear and stress was unbearable. They would not diagnose him even though we were now sure. Thank god for the internet and the opportunity to research this condition and see that it was treatable. We found a DAN doctor and got started with supplements, probiotics and the gfcf diet. Big improvement. We did tested that confirmed he had high levels of lead and gut dysbiosis. His GP and paediatrician did not want to know. We did more tests and found he had Mercury, Nickel, Thallium, Bismuth and Palladium and yeast overgrowth. Guess were he got the Mercury??? This merciless genocide has to stop and the evil that has literally been thrust into our children exposed. This will be the biggest scandal of all time and the compensation will probably bankrupt our dirty governments
Letisia Telles My son when he got his mmr shots I notice that he got a reaction to it. He broke down into a rash thru all his body, he had a fever. Months later everything faded away, he didn't have eye contact, he didn’t smile, he would cry often.
Harry Tembenis On December 16, 2003, Petitioner Harry Tembenis
filed this case on behalf of his son, Elias Tembenis, under the National
Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (“Vaccine Act” or “Act”). 2 Petitioner filed a
“Short-Form Autism Petition for Vaccine Compensation,” and joined the Omnibus
Autism Proceeding (“OAP”). On August 27, 2008, Petitioner filed a notice to
proceed separately from the OAP, and he also filed an amended petition that
alleged that a Diphtheria-Tetanus-acellular-Pertussis (“DTaP”) vaccination
administered on December 26, 2000, caused Elias to develop a seizure disorder
that eventually led to his death. On November 13, 2008, the caption was amended
to name Harry and Gina Tembenis, as administrators of Elias’s estate,
Susan TenEyck 1981 (around) DT vaccine. Cobb County health dept on Fairground St, Marietta, GA. SEVERE neurological reaction, rapid & fluctuating BP, psychosis (tried to jump out of a moving car), could only see *sun spots*, etc... I was in the 10th grade and this was the shot we were supposed to have for that grade. Also, for my son July or August 2003, Wellstar Kennestone Hospital, Marietta, GA, Hep B (given without consent and against express wishes not to give). This was documented in medical file to give without consent. Child has a dual diagnosis.... The MDS was not caused by the vaccine, but the ASD and the profound apraxia could have been. No other vaccines were ever given. He also has had a chronic immune dysfunction his entire life (will be 8 in July).
Laurie Thayne DPT booster shot given late so around 13, 14 months. As I had a horrible feeling about giving it to him. Brought him home where he sat and spun his arms under a revolving ceiling fan, would no longer respond to us and quit talking (he spoke in small sentences at 8 months) Oh..ya and is still severely autistic and cannot speak.
Michael and Terry Thomas Following MMR became ill and in pain, bowel problems, learning difficulties. (Somerset).
Tracey Thomas We had a happy calm, smiling, ahead, walked at 11 months could talk, count do everything well ahead of the average. Forced by doctor who said they would remove us from their list unless we had the MMR. We did and we now have a child with the mental age of 6. He is nearly 13yrs. Also after MMR he had bowel problems, goes to a special school, has Autism and Asperger’s, no friends, no life. Don’t try and tell, MMR didn’t have a part in this. London, UK.
Karen Thomason Hi. I saw your posting. I was hesitant to answer at first because initially I was not aware that my child was vaccine injured and it is more difficult to explain in just 4 sentences. His regression into autism was more gradual rather than sudden. However, looking back and with the symptoms he showed following vaccinations (including Hep B at birth) I have no doubt he was affected. My son received his MMR and chicken pox vaccines in Lindenhurst, IL (USA) right after turning one. It was like a light switch as far as his diet and he suddenly became a very picky eater (he used to eat everything) and suddenly only wanted to eat milk and wheat-based products and started showing some repetitive behaviors and a fascination with wheels. Then, shortly after his DPT shot and a flu-shot (w/ a full dose of mercury) he began experiencing night terrors and staring episodes. Tantrums increased and language development, which was previously on schedule, plateaud and he then fell behind in both receptive and expressive language development. He became hyper-focused on letters and numbers. Today, he is 8 1/2 and has improved a great deal following treatments which included biomedical intervention and diet changes (GF/CF). He is a gifted child and has a great sense of humor. We are proud of his progress and continue to follow biomedical intervention. A couple additional notes: His biomedical doctor tested his vaccine titers several years after his MMR and his Rubella titers at that time were still 15X normal. The measles and mumps titers were on the low side. He's had gut issues but was never scoped. He had constant ear infections and doses of antibiotics from 3 months or so on.
Heather Mills Thompson My son didn't have any reaction that I could visibly see - but I think his problems started with the Hep B series. We've not even been told about gene testing. We live in Southern WV, so basically we're told that if you have an autistic child that there's nothing to do. We had to jump through hoops to find a program for him. Fortunately we found Birth to Three.
Jackie Thompson Georgina was born 15th July 1996, Coffs Harbour, NSW, Australia (Postcode 2450) She was 4 weeks premature but very healthy At 8 weeks, 9th Sept, I went for her check-up, the Dr said it was fine to administer the DPT shot even though she was premature. After her shot she went to sleep. 5 hours later I tried to wake her as I was worried as she had not woken to feed. She began screaming in her sleep, and I mean screaming!! It was awful!!!! She had no colour and was limp. I rushed her to emergency and had to wait for 3 hours to be seen. Any time I moved the slightest bit with her in my arms she'd begin screaming again, all this time never opening her eyes. Her temp was 38.5c. I was seen by the Dr who told me this was a "normal" reaction to the DPT shot. I asked how something like this could be called "normal". He proceeded to inform me that for my daughters next shot I could bring her into the Emergency Dept to have it administered. I asked if that meant they had some sort of anti-serum stuff to give to stop the reaction. He answered "No, but we have the equipment her to resuscitate her if it's needed". I won't type what I answered to him but needless to say I left him standing there with a shocked look on his face. 10th Sept - High temp, extreme hypersensitive to touch and noise, very pale, limp and kept doing a weird rolling movement of her tongue. 11th Sept - High temp, Hypersentsitive Pale, limp, tongue rolling. 16th Sept was the first day she actually appeared to be normal again with the symptoms gradually disappearing.Needless to say she has never had another shot. The Australian Vacination Network had not long been set up and I managed to get a hold of Meryl Dorney who explained to me what had happened. As a baby Georgina was a handful. The only way I could get her to sleep was to rock her in my arms, this could take hours!!! She never seemed to need sleep. At about 3yrs old the pre-school said they thought she was ADD or ADHD (some label). Up until 3yrs she had chronic tonsilitis with really scarey high temp sometimes up to 40.5c. She ended up in hospital with septosemia from the tonsils and periorbital cellulitis. They also picked up that she had Epstein Barr virus by chance at the same time. Her tonsils were removed at 3.5 yrs. She also had asthma. I found some great Drs in Sydney and by using diet, homeopathy, chinese herbs, cranial oseopathy etc etc we managed to sort her out. At current age of 14 she is happy and intelligent. No sign of ADD etc. She still gets the cradle cap stuff. She had a weight problem which we try to sort with a sensible diet and exercise but to me her metabolism is very low. She is prone to constipation if I don't keep an eye on her fibre intact. She is very active though. She is allergic to penicillin, ibuprofen, dogs, cats, and has an allergy to cold (cold urticuria). She has the most extreme sensitivity of her scalp. The slightest hair pull, even at the hairdressers can reduce her to tears. My second child was born 21st Dec 1999 and he has never had a single shot. He was born with an eczema and a wide ranging food intolerance even through breast milk. The pediatrician who I was under at the time advised against giving him any shots as well. He also had asthma. He also has low muscle tone. Both no longer get asthma once we moved from Australia. Considering that my second child was born with allergy problems I think Georgina's shot reaction has a lot to do with genetics and mercury. Family history - 1 Aunt has Lupus, 1 Uncle has Crohns (He had measles at 3 months of age!). I also was a 'guinea pig' in my early teens for a new treatment for allergies to grass and pollen which entailed them injecting me with the allergens over a 6 month period. After each injection I felt terrible and my arm would swell up like a tennis ball at the site. (My mother and sister had the same treatment and it seemed to work then bizarrely we all began to get bad hayfever again simultaneously 3 yrs ago). The last shot I had was 10yrs ago, a tetanus booster plus a Hep A shot as moving to Asia. Both in the same arm. It was awful, I felt every drop of them go through my blood stream up to my brain and on down the other side of my body. Really scarey!! Never again!!! To top everything off I was a dental nurse for 12 years. I actually started at the time when we had to rub the wet amalgam in a piece of fabric to shape it without any gloves. There was no special ventilation of any kind. During the course of alternative treatments I had both children tested for mercury and both were high. Both were given treatment for this. I'm now listed by the Australian Government as a "Conscientious Objector" to vaccination. My daughters adverse reaction was never officially reported even though I requested it to be. I have two very healthy children who are hardly ever sick. I'm very glad I did not give my son a shot as I'm sure he would have had a reaction more drastic than my daughters. I feel sick every time I hear someone say they are taking their children to get their booster for this or that. I feel they are playing Russian Roulette. My brother and his wife are going ahead with vaccinating my nephew and it makes me feel sick with worry. I've pointed out to them that he seems to get a bad cough and cold within a week of each shot but it falls on deaf ears. I've even asked them to give him vitamin c etc and to space them out but no luck. Joan I wish you all the best on your quest and hope some of the information above is helpful to you.
Jo Thompson My son is 10, he got his mmr at 13 months and regressed within weeks. He had always laughed and had eye contact with us playing around. He had began walking with his push along walker at 11 months. After the Jab he never walk...ed again till 19 months and stopped chatting mum mum and dada etc.he began to look straight through us not at us. We watched our little man disappear before our eyes.. Which I still kick myself and cry over to this day. :( he has struggled ever since he never said mummy till he was 5. He barely speaks and struggles to cope with life. It's soul destroying. My girls have never and will never receive the jab! in Cardiff uk
Nicole Thompson My son's recovery from Autism, and my most recent article is specifically about the impact of vaccines on our beloved little ones. http://www.examiner.com/special-needs-kids-in-wilmington/nicole-thompson
Mel Thornburg Son-34yrs. old. --Reaction Screaming/Crying/HeadBanging--Reactions to all less than 2 yrs. old. I just didn'tknow then what it was-- Son-32 --No Reactions. Daughter-14yrs. old--Reactions to DPT-102 fever--MMR- Measles like rash--She has had no more vaccines/immunizations/TBskin tests, ect. since. All were given in Henderson,KY. She does have enough antibodies on WB to treat for Lyme Disease. I suffer from Neuroborreliosis. I believe we have a lot of our kids being thrown under the rug labeled as psych.or other when it is really illness that is hidden. Marion,KY.
Oliver Thrower Passed all milestones by 15 months, had single measles vaccine plus DPT at 15 months, high pitched screaming, development stalled then regressed, lost speech. Some slow recovery then MMR at age 4 years, became unmanageable, biting/scratching, constipation/loose stools, incontinent, no speech, multiple food allergies, night sweating, chronically poor sleep, flapping/spinning, traits of autism. Current severe learning disability. (Warrington)
Carol Tilston My 12 yr old son and his twin sister had their mmr on the same day when they were 13months, within a week he had regressed completely and diagnosed autistic when he was two. Lerwick
Margaret Tipton My son had Hep B vax 24 hours after birth(1995). Had difficulty feeding for 1st week of life (fed with eye dropper at one point). I had to wake him to feed him. Never suspected the shot. After 9 mos. shots he started looking at things w/... his peripheral vision. Special diet, biomed & speech have helped recover him. He has Autism, and now as a teenager, has developed seizures. My daughter had a reaction to her shots at 2 mos old(1993). She woke screaming after having received her shots earlier in the day. She could not be consoled. The on-call doctor told us to give her more Tylenol, which we did. Ultimately she did go back to sleep. For her next round of shots, the Pertussis part of the DPT was omitted. My daughter has ADD today. The vaccines were administered in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, USA.
Carol Tobgui-Ramirez We're from Melbourne Australia, one of twin daughters had the mmr at 18 months & got very ill, high temperatures ear aches & slowly lost her speech, focus, sleep, sensory & motor skills. We have video footage of what she used to be like before the vaccine & until now which she is 5 1/2 years old.
Alicia Toler I noticed around the time my son got the MMR shot he started rocking back and forth constantly. He also had watery loose stools, and eventually I couldn't pick him up to hold him. I have two other healthy kids that are not affected by vaccines like my third son is. I suspect my daughter may have a very mild form of being affected because I notice she has odd mood swings at things that are not things people would be upset about. After my third son went through those symptoms, I began to notice he would never put anything in his mouth, and would only drink milk. Now he is drinking pediasure, and will not eat anything. When I brought up the rocking back and forth with the pediatrician Dr Dekle I was told that he would grow out of that this is his way of soothing himself. My other son will also attach himself to toys to sooth himself so I thought at the time it was not that unusual. Then we noticed when we take him places or when people at the doctor’s office try to give him exams he will fight with you constantly. I never knew a three year old child could have the strength of a much older kid he was very hard to hold and three people had to hold him down to do an exam. I was told by his dentist and pediatricians because he sees many in this office that he was just strong willed. As time went by, it got worse from here. He only says about eighty words, and it is random you can't have a conversation with him. He rarely talks if at all sometimes it just happens. He will have melt downs without anything we know of that triggers it. Now when he rocks back and forth he bangs his head hard that we have to constantly stop him, and one day he broke a bedroom window with his head thank God he was not hurt. We have had to board up windows, and tape appliances down because he will break things, or put himself in danger or others. He plays with everything you don't want him to, and he will only play with cars no other toys. It has really been hard on all of us. We are starting aba therapy which is not covered by our private insurance we do not qualify for Medicaid with our income, but we can't afford long term therapy. Our insurance will only cover some therapy. He is on a waiting list for a school program but I don't know how that will work if he will get in there before he starts school he is now four years old. The behavior is like that of someone who has taken drugs. I find it very hard to believe this is genetic because nobody in my family has this. I believe that vaccines trigger this in certain children. I will not give up, and do everything I can for my son. I do not trust the doctors or pediatricians because I was told my husband was informed of this a year ago but he says that he was not told anything, and I never recieved any written material about autism from the pediatrician. I brought up vaccines with my pediatrician but she said that thimerosal was taken out, and we didn't receive it. I believe there is way too many vaccines for kids these days, and it doesn't have to be one in particular I just noticed his behavior around the MMR vaccine. I think maybe pediatricians, and doctors are told to say these things to keep their job, or they are not knowledgeable about autism. Everyone seems to think your kid is just acting like a brat in public. I used to think this way when I didn't had my third son, and I first heard about these behaviors I'm sorry about this. The real truth of how extreme this really is needs to be told to everyone truth does set us free. How many more kids will never be able to live a life of free will, and die from this before something is done? Thanks for allowing us to have a voice here there are still very caring people that do care about humanity. Brandon, FL
Billy Tommey Bright healthy boy until had MMR at 13 months, convulsed, admitted to hospital. Chronic diarrhoea, loss of speech, lost eye contact, lost social skills. Health improved (now age 14) following intensive biomedical interventions, but autism remains. (Middlesex)
Ana Torres I'm so sorry Brandi my son was talking, walking normal, acting like a child his age and after his vaccination he start going back crawling back, no eye contact and stop talking his behavior decrease and increase by time. I still believe this vaccine gave my son autism 6 months old, H1N1, flu. Philadelphia Pa
Olga Torres My son got lost in the Dark! His health now several mineral deficiencies and GI issues, Florida, USA. Lee County, City of Fort Myers
Caroline Traa Rebecca had quite an unusual vaccination schedule
as we were moving to the Middle East. She was given BCG (morning) on the same
day as her DPT + polio (afternoon) at 8 weeks. She stopped breathing but GPs
did not even inform me if this until we went back at 12 weeks and the doctor
was present 'in case she needed resuscitated!' The nurse had called the vaccine
company and said it was probably having all those vaccines on the same day that
had made her stop breathing previous month
Amanda Trainer-Elliott My son was recently diagnosed. At 9months he had his vaccines. A few hours after the shots....he had mmr, dtp, and many more (I'd have to get out the hot records to know for sure on all of them) he spiked a fever of 105.9 that would not com...e down. Two hours later, he started having convulsions and was taken by ambulance to the ER. After that day, he has not spoken a word. Before then, he could say at least 6 words, at NINE months, waved bye bye and made eye contact. Since then, he has not spoken but the occasional word here and there and has withdrawn from everyone he once "knew". Did the vaccines cause it?? In my opinion, yes. Or they brought it out. Whichever is the case, the vaccines did not help. My son's vaccinations were administered in Jonesboro, Arkansas.
Evan Tran and his twin brother were born at 32 weeks and had to stay in the NICU for a month. After receiving his three month vaccines Evan began having severe eczema. he developed welts all over his body and tried to scratch all the time. He was given five shot, two of which were not listed on my copy of his records that needed initial-ling next to them only on his blue health records. This means they were given without my consent. At his six month check up he was given five shots. Two of these I did not initial for again. The next day he got the flu. His temp reached 106 at one time. He spent two days in the hospital with low respiration. He was released with "Bronchitis". He went back to the E.R one month later with the same diagnosis. At Evan’s nine month visit he received two more vaccines one witch was not listed on his blue records. He was sick every month after that sometimes for weeks at a time. For Evan's twelve month shots he was given two shots only one was listed on his blue records. It showed that he was also given the MMR shots on my records, my initials look completely falsified. He developed chicken pox marks on his body that came and went for over two months. He was never the same. Evan started the head banging, smacking, focused on fans, wheels and lights. He never again played with is twin brother, could not stand for him to be near him. Evan received four more shots one that was not recorded because they had "no where" to list it. I made them write it in. The same day he was referred to a developmental paediatrician for signs of Autism they still gave him four shots. Evan is extremely violent; he hurts himself and his brother all the time. His crib is now completely covers with quilts so he won’t hurt himself. He has stopped talking and won’t let anyone except me or his dad pick him up. no eye contact even after calling his name over and over, Evan was recently diagnosed with Autism. He has therapy four times a week now and is on an extreme diet. He can't have Gluten, casein, nuts of any kind, egg whites, oats, buckwheat, garlic, soy. The list goes on and on from there. My son Evan was known as the "Angel Baby" because he was so good. His family cannot even believe the drastic changes in his personality and behavior. Some one really needs to be held accountable for this!! Not just for me but for all of the family's going through the same thing. Signed a very sad & mad mommy. St.Pete, Florida
Lyn Travis My son is 26 years old and has been dealing with issues his entire life but we believe they started after the MMR vaccine at 18 months. We were living in Hobbs, NM at that time. He was diagnosed with ADD and audio processing difficulty in early grade school. His issues worsened, we believe, after an MMR booster at the age of ten that was administered in Jackson, Mississippi. He has had neurological damage to his brain and central nervous system with the primary problems being severe anxiety and brain function. We are currently trying to recover him but his life has basically been on hold for years now. Valley View, Tx
Isabella Raen Tredinnick was born September 2, 2006. Skeptical of this finding I began to search relentlessly but not being able to give up the preconceived notion that vaccines worked. Her pediatrician and I agree on a delayed/separated schedule. OnMay 20, 2008 she received DTaP(3) and hep b(2), Within hours she became a rag doll. Her fever was 105.3* she vomited everything she had in her. Her entire tiny body turned red and she lost eye contact she could not talk or even cry. She just laid there whimpering. Our ER did not have a pediatrician and they tried to bring her temp down and keep her from vomiting more. The doctor, and blessings to him, knew what was happening and transported her to the Children's hospital. The pediatrician on rounds was the very one who vaxxed my son. He had the nerve to tell us we were over reacting. My husband told him he was not to be anywhere near our daughter and requested a new pediatrician. The new pediatrician agreed with the ER doc. My Isabella laid there for 4 days, not eating or talking. Finally she picked her little head up and asked for food. "fa foodies pees" . 24 hrs she was home with us tiny and frail still not walking. It took weeks for her to learn to walk again. Months to re-learn her words and nearly a year to make eye contact again. After all of this her pediatrician still wanted to complete the schedule. His reasoning is just because the event happens right after doesn't make it the cause. Told me she wouldn't be admitted to school, college, military or be able to have a medical career. I declined. Her baby brother was born 4 mo from her reaction and baby sister in January of 2011. They are vax-free and healthy. Chesapeake, Va
Giorgio Tremante There seems to be a growing problem (over the past 20 years especially), with many children having autistic issues following vaccination. My sister was vaccine injured as a child. She has Crohns and ADD, is on disability since she can't hold down a job due to her physical problems. She helped me take care of my daughter for over three years, but has had a physical setback to the point she can barely get around. We're hoping she will get some help soon from her slow poke doctors. None are in a hurry here in the states when you're on disability! To prove how much damage vaccinations can do, so indiscriminately used on families from all over the world, I think it is necessary for me to tell my story. Unfortunately my story is not considered a sole and sporadic case in itself, but it is just the tip of the iceberg. Vaccinations are still being forced onto people through fear based tactics. My family has been the victim of vaccine injury and three of my four children have been irreversibly damaged. I state that my three children affected by vaccine reaction, were born perfectly healthy and that the manifestations of the disease appeared only after the first Sabin polio vaccine. My eldest son'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. It was interesting to see the diagnosis of the pediatrician being interpreted differently by other doctors, as they had assumed the sudden health problems were to be attributed to brain tumours or degenerative encephalopathy, never confirmed by any analysis performed on the child. My eldest son died in 1971 at age six. With the second child, born in 1970, there were no problems - despite vaccinations received, but the drama came up again with the birth of twins in 1976. Despite my fierce opposition to have my twins vaccinated, a law made it mandatory and without any prior investigation, that the shots be administered. Already the very next day side effects began to emerge and the first signs of change were perceivable and clearly visible. I submitted the medical records of my twins' first hospitalizations to various Universities in the United States, in England and even in Russia. In the latter country it was assumed that my children were plagued by a drastically impaired immune system that confirmed the direct cause and link to the vaccinations given to them. My children were diagnosed with "Metachromatic Leukodystrophy Type" by doctors of my city, Verona, Italy. The above mentioned condition is a degenerative disease of the nervous system, and has never been confirmed by genetic tests to which we subjected ourselves too. Later, Andrew, one of the twins, had a deterioration of his health and was hospitalized for dehydration. Despite my recommendation not to make use of immunosuppressive drugs, because the child was Immune Compromised, an infusion of cortisone was administered and five hours later Andrew died. Later I learned that the same drug was also administered to my first child before death. Despite the fact that we would have had useful information to save the life of the twins, it was not accepted because we were denied the presence of the coroner at the moment when our first son died, so that the examination performed by the pediatrician could not be validated and applied to our research. One month after the death of Andrew, also Albert, the other twin brother, had to be hospitalized. Foregoing the opinion of doctors to let him die, we were able to have our request granted to move him to a Pediatric Intensive Care Unit and we had a virologist from Naples (Dr. Tarro) come to attend and who had previously examined the child. This doctor from Naples advised to apply immune stimulants. Subjected to treatment with "interferon", the boy began to slowly improve. After six months in the hospital the child was brought home with no letter of discharge from the hospital. Sometime later, medical records that we requested, I noticed that they were different from those we photo copied daily during the time of hospitalization. Due to this discrepancy we presented a judiciary complaint. As a result of our legal action the Attorney of the hospital counter sued and declared that this was a case of "Public falsification of records". Alberto, the twin brother, was admitted at the same hospital in Verona as Andrew was too and also in other ICUs: the Policlinico of Milan, in the province of Como, Merate, Melegnano, near Milan, and finally was transferred to the office from Melegnano to the Hospital of Verona. During all the various hospital stays my task was to ensure that immune therapies were practiced which had given positive results before. These therapies were always recommended to us by Professor Tarro of Naples, who had been a student of Professor Sabin. It was always difficult, if not nearly impossible, to apply this type of therapy to Alberto, since the medical faculty had already ruled that my son should die. This was supported because the cause of the injury had been directly correlated to the discovery that it was caused to the vaccines given, despite the child was already partially immune compromised. Although our case had gained the interest and direct involvement of the Italian President, Mr. Sandro Pertini, and despite pressure onto the Minister of Health, to bring to life a Ministerial Commission through Mr. Renato Altissimo, it all fell through due to the falsified data that did hide the truth of the damage my son suffered through the vaccine. During the last treatment my son underwent at the Albert Hospital of Verona, the doctors were the opinion that my son would die soon. I then tried desperately to bring home my baby, since that was their way of thinking and because the only solution to the problem for them was the culmination of our whole nefarious affair. At that point a children's judge of Venice did revoke my "parental authority", which I right away fought and refused to let happen. I tried to make him understand that he was committing a gross error. I managed to convince the judge to reinstate the parental authority, beginning early 1984. I was able to reverse the decision of the court by creating a "recovery room" in our home, right in our bedroom. During all hospital stays my wife Franca Albert was at our son's side each and every day and every night in order to protect our child from any possible medical abuse or more damage. Health care institutions did not want to admit that vaccines were the cause of his illness and death of his brothers and thus they tried every possible manoeuvre to erase leads on it. Finally, in 1995, by resorting to the law 210 of 1992, recognized by the State, the judge saw the "causation" of the damage suffered by subjecting our children to the vaccination requirement. During all these years I ADOP was established. An association in Italy that has been gathering information and data from people who have suffered damage from vaccination practices; I also tried to push for a law, to remove the mandatory practices of administering these vaccines, but this goal was not achieved in Italy, because, in my opinion, the health care industry has been dominated by the corrupt power of the Multinational Drug monopolies. All this is proving that even in this area, some pseudo-science of gross arrogance and devoid of all scruples, tramples on people and the vaccine victims. Illegal practices that did override all human and civil rights. It imposes its power based primarily on speculative interests without giving any accurate information on the potential dangers associated with vaccines, but rather of a deliberate misinformation and complete cover-up up to promoting that it is to the prophylactic prevention of illnesses.

Sarah Treweeks Switched off after immunisation, stopped talking, interacting, smiling, overnight, Developed loose stools and chronic ear infections (Birmingham)
Lisa Trifan My son Joshua has Autism I believe as a result of the MMR, up until Joshua was 1 he was developing perfectly normal after the MMR his life changed drastically! He got extremely high temps for weeks after, he wouldn't eat anymore he cried every time we left the house, he screamed at loud noises or cars or trucks passing on the street he stopped developing language and communicating! he was a totally different child in every way you can imagine that being said.... i am so proud of his accomplishments each day he amazes me :)also want to point out each day i am learning to cope with this my son in my eyes is perfect I know the reason it was the MMR full stop. Dublin Ireland.
Lynda Trimble My grandson was perfect, could say a complete sentence at 18mos then not another word until 4yr old. After every shot less connection. Ignored most everything. Now 11yr.speaks, but difficult. Barth USA
Michele Korczak Trosclair My daughter regressed developmentally immediately after receiving the MMR, flu and varicella vaccines at her 12 mo visit. We lived in Huntsville, AL at that time.
Lucy Daniilidis Truta At one years old started to see a change in my son then at 15 months after getting his H1N1 vaccine within that week we saw a huge change in him. He regressed. He stopped saying his four words, stopped waving and started to spin in circles, flapped his hands, started grinding his teeth, walking on his tipi-toes and was really into spinning wheels. Montreal, Canada.
Shawn Tucker Our son was a very healthy child, no ear-aches or very many sicknesses, only a cold now and then. Took him in for his 2 year well child check up where he received the regular course of vaccinations for his age. He became very lethargic and ran a fever of 105.5. Two weeks later, I notice him favoring me talking to one ear. Had him tested- he had lost all of his hearing in one ear and most of it in the other. His hearing before this was excellent and he was ahead of other children of the same age in his speech before this happened. He started wearing a hearing aid at the age of 2. He is now almost 22 years old. He does pretty well, but I only wish I had known then what I know now and he wouldn't have had to deal with this for the rest of his life. Kentucky
Claudia Tuckman 2 children, one regressed after 18 mo shots, ped said he had "depression". pfft. second son I had the flu shot while I was preg due to dr recommendation and he is more severely affected. Orange County, CA
Delia Tuohy There has been a number of children affected by the BCG vaccine in the last twelve months (at least). The reaction seems to be triggered by the next vaccine they receive. The HSE are currently investigating (covering up) the evidence in a very low key manner. My sisters child was one of the children affected.(I've copied her on this e-mail in case you are wondering who the other receipient is) She was six months old at the time and within a couple of days of receiving the 6 in one vaccine she spiked a fever and her lymph gland on the right side of her neck enlarged to the point that it was clearly visible. To cut a long story short she was admitted to hospital in Mullingar where they pumped 4 different IV antibiotics into her with no effect. She had to be sent to Crumlin Hospital to have the lymph gland surgically incised because they had been unable to bring her temperature under control and picked up ESBL while there. My sister has recently received a call from a doctor from the HSE who took her details and tried to put words in my sisters mouth regarding her daughters experience but did not give any explanation whatsoever about what happened or if there is likely to be any further implications to her health or whether further vaccines might cause a similar or worse adverse reaction or whether the ESBL will complicate the matter at all. If you could provide us with any information or guidance as to how to proceed from here we would be very grateful as we really don't know where to start and we really need some information and not the rubbish the HSE are spouting.
Stephanie Turillo Our son had very high fevers, prolonged inconsolable screaming, red and swollen injection sites at every vaccination. Our pediatrician recommended Tylenol before and after and we were told his "reactions "were normal. He lost attention, focus, play skills, eye contact and a 40 word vocabulary at 20 months following, seasonal flu, h1n1, chicken pox, mmr, hib, and dtap. Two years later we still have lost our perfectly neurotypical son to a regression into Autism due to vaccine injury.
Jaime Tuttle My son stopped talking, stopped waving bye bye, wouldn't look at us when we called his name about 3 weeks after the MMR shot. He’s 4 now almost 5 and only repeats what we say, can't follow a simple command. Not potty trained and head bangs when he gets mad. California.
