Another Vaccine Victim

This time it was a 14-year-old boy in Virginia who developed a case of Guillain-Barre syndrome less than 24 hours after getting his shot.

Jordan McFarland, a high school athlete from Alexandria, Va., left Inova Fairfax Hospital for Children Tuesday night in a wheelchair nearly a week after developing severe headaches, muscle spasms and weakness in his legs following a swine flu shot. He will likely need the assistance of a walker for four to six weeks, plus extensive physical therapy.

“The doctor said I’ll recover fully, but it’s going to take some time,” the teenager said.

Dr. Claudia J. Vellozzi, deputy director for immunization safety at the CDC, said “there’s no clear link between the new vaccine and the disease.” She states that these GBS cases are “events” that just “happen” after the vaccination. They are just coincidence. Doctors at the hospital refuse to talk about GBS in connection with the vaccines, and accordingly, they are giving the press very limited information.

Meanwhile, ScienceNews has published a piece that attempts to debunk the notion of side effects (GBS, miscarriage, MS, Bell’s Palsy, seizures, etc.) by pointing to statistics that show ‘it would have happened regardless.’

If policymakers, physicians and the public don’t understand the magnitude of background rates for diseases and health impacts, they risk inappropriately attributing certain adverse events to vaccines.

Then why do we have George Bush’s gift to Big Pharma – the 2006 Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness Act? This is the law that “allows the DHHS Secretary to invoke almost complete immunity from liability for manufacturers of vaccines and drugs used to combat a declared public health emergency.” How convenient it is.

    I sincerely hope that parents everywhere are made aware of Jordan’s plight and learn the appropriate lessons from it. Any parent who would allow their child to be injected with this poisonous weapon of mass destruction is guilty of child abuse.

    What a Crying Shame! This young boy, his parents, and our society are locked up in a pen unable to defend ourselves against negligent corporations and bought and paid for elected officials.

    What a slimeball government we now live under!! You Betcha!!

    Hi Karen, this story is fortunately, not so sad compared to this one that I recently saw:

    This poor woman can barely function. Disease risk or not, it is just not worth rolling up ones sleeve and getting poked for a possible outcome like this.

    I understand that we average 36,000 flu deaths per year (Centers for Disease Control Stat in local Gannett-Newspaper). We have had 4,000 so far this year, but the “season” really gems up in November. It will be ****very**** interesting to me to see what the final tally is this year in roughly mid-March.

    For those who haven’t read it yet, on yesterday’s LRC, Bill Sardi presented this summary of H1N1 vaccine horror stories involving pregnant women. As Bill says, these are stories you will NEVER get from the state-hugging MSM.

    LIberranter, I have to be upfront with you here, so pardon me on the disagreement: only the most obscene amateur and attention seeker (Sardi) would actually go out and link to anonymous reader comments on the “About” website, and use these comments to support his point and make his case. I found that to be a major embarrassment. Quite frankly, many people – LRC readers and other writers – are fed up with this sloppy, amateurish, sensationalism from Sardi. Worse than that, rumor is that he makes these posts himself and then links to them to make his case. A whole lotta people do that stuff, ya know.

    If I did not write & edit for LRC, I’d be shredding Sardi’s piss-poor work on my own site. Don’t people see the hyper-sensationalism with these people? I’m embarrassed each time an article of his appears touting some new miracle cure for ingrown toenails, or an article telling us that one vitamin or natural herb cures 50 pains and diseases.

    Debunk him to disprove him then? I get what you’re saying, half-way. If fifty people blog about something the “powers that be” would never want known there may be something to it, or it might be like you said.

    It’s playing the gossip grapevine?

    They knew ahead of time about Pearl Harbor, imagine if a couple of people were discussing this before the attack? Something like that.

    I got no time to type this time, and you probably don’t either.

    Back in 2005, I had come down with Guillian-Barre’ syndrome.
    (It was not, however, vaccination-related)

    An additional effect of G-B is the *pain*…. and the spinal tap required to test that it is G-B.

    Five years later, I am still not fully recovered. I have some residual weakness from which I will never recover. Although I am able to rack the slide on my favorite .45!
