Did your child suffer a severe side effect from a vaccine?

By KSPR News
http://www.kspr.com/news/local/30808289.html

KSPR reported two weeks ago about the death of 1-year old Madyson Williams from the MMR vaccine.

Garry and Rachel Williams will receive $250,000 from the government for the death of their daughter.

The Williams claimed the Mumps, Measles, Rubella Vaccine or MMR killed their daughter.

Madyson got the vaccine at the Pediatric Center in Springfield on May 12, 2006. Her parents submitted medical evidence that the MMR vaccine is the reason Madyson died 6 days later.

Attorneys for the Department of Health and Human Services Friday settled with the family for liability.

Since this story we've heard from many people who've seen their children suffer adverse effects from vaccines. If you are one of those families KSPR wants to talk to you. We are interviewing members of the Federal Health and Human Services department about why it requires some vaccines. If you are willing to talk about your experience on camera and share with the Ozarks why you believe vaccines should not be required, please contact Christine Daues at cdaues@kspr.com

Anyone who takes ANY time to research vaccines typically decides against them. The evidence is overwhelming that it is unhealthy to bypass normal routes of entry, injecting: foreign proteins/genetic material, highly toxic chemicals, viruses, bacteria and tons of contaminants. My unvaxed child is MUCH healthier than my oldest...and she "only" received 3 rounds, birth, 1 and 2 months (2 Hep B vaxes, one Oral Polio-contraindicated in IgA deficient kids-which she turned out to be) then I WISED UP

My sister in law has first hand knowledge of a child that was healthy until a vaccine was given , then the child was unresponsive.

3 years ago a friend's baby died less than 48 hours after the birth dose of Hep B vaccine. My oldest child who is fully vaccinated has many behavior/emotional problems, while my younger 2 unvaccinated children exhibit signs of being much happier and healthier than her.

This tragedy happens too to my friend which had a 1 yr old baby. After having this MMR and Flu shot, the baby got a lot of side effects; ie, high fever, ear infection, water in the lungs, swollen brain and it's ended to ICU until he died after few days of vaccination. The main problem too, the Clinic didn't recorded the Vaccination they given to the baby.

to the person who wrote that most kids are not sick from shots...actually, MOST kids do have adverse effects from shots..that is why swelling, fever, etc. IS considered normal...

What no one considers is how many children, like my son, are normal until receiving a vaccine. He stopped walking and talking and at 5 is just starting to talk again and will care his entire life. Autism is absolutely linked (unless you own a patent and do the study) to autism. Many of us have lost our children to a disorder that changed all of who they were from a vaccine. 1 in 58 kids is just to many with autism.

OMG...I can't believe some of these comments! I am in the process of writing a speech about not giving vaccines....do any of you people even know whats in them??? Aborted fetal cells, chemicals, viruses, bacteria...the list goes on and on....and NO WAY is the risk for disease worse than the risk for death now and days...check any statistics that are reputable. Yes death is rare...but what about AUTISM, ceisures, ADD, ADHD,etc ,etc! I WILL NOT VACCINATE MY SON UNTIL HE IS OLDER!!!! NO WAY!

My son(now 25) had a severe reaction to the pertussis vaccination(whooping cough). Severe pain,high fever,uncontrollable crying... we took him back to the doctor and they said to NEVER get this part of the vaccine again that it would kill him. I know that vaccinations are for the most part helpful, but I am very leary of giving them now!

Most of the people here are talking about their children having problems with vaccines, but the largest percentage of kids never have a problem. Most kids are never even sick from shots. I know mine did fine. However, losing even one beautiful child to vaccinations is too many. I hope more research will be done and this child's death won't be in vain. Madyson was a beautiful little girl.

Wow! The more I read the worse people get. I had 4 children all vacinated, but one died. She died because she did not have a vaccine we have today. She got Meningitis. I will forever vaccinate. It is a horrible loss for the family and that is where our prayers and thoughts should be, not criticizing each other for our beleifs.

So so sad about any child's death, whatever the cause. But most posters here clearly don't realise how harmful the diseases can be. Even today measles will kill one child in every 5000;- and if no-one vaccinated there would be 4 million cases each year in the US with up to 800 kids dying, never mind the thousands hospitalised with brain damage from encephalitis.

My heart goes out to this family! My daughter was injured at 2 months old from her vaccinations. I think its so unreal that people cannot grasp the reality that Vaccinations are Medicine, not everyone is built the same way, and will react differently to medicines. How is a reaction to a vax any different than reacting to a certain antibiotic? Or pain medication? It isnt.... peoples heads are too far in the clouds!

Research the link between polio and DDT. DDT caused polio to become an epidemic. Polio wasn't called the "summer disease" for nothing...they thought DDT was 'safe', sprayed it on everything! And it didn't wash off. Also check out the link of Avian flu and Agent Orange in Cambodia. All diseases had been in decline before the vaxes were introduced. Clean living got rid of more disease than anything else, including hand washing! Drug companies sponsor the vaccine 'studies'. Follow the money trail!

I feel heartsick about this horrible tragedy of this little girl and her parents...I can't even imagine having to cope with such a senseless loss! When will the TRUTH come out? Vaccines do NOT work, and they are causing death and autism, among other diseases! There were very few details as well. I guess it's best to keep the story short, otherwise people will KNOW the truth, huh? I pray her parents can overcome this. $250,000. That is NOTHING, and will not bring this baby back!

This goes to show a one size fits all vaccine program is just causing so many problems and its sad when people just turn theri backs and dont listen. If vaccines can killa young child, they can also damagea younf child. The goverment has always silently admitted sometimes a child will die froma vaccine. So to them its ok..and not only ok but they see it can kill and then say but if it doesnt kill a child then the child is fine. No middle ground? How bout autism?

I hear people saying ....I am from Europe and and none of my friends was vaccine injured....First of all, I am from Eruope too. We had 1/3 of the amount of vaccine that you get in US and most of them where separate vaccines. People have to understand that vaccines are not mandatory. There are expemptions. My child has not been vaccinated at all and she is 4 year old. She was only sick 2 times for 2 days (both time it was cold). She is healthy becasue she is not vaccinated.

I would like to know what the actual cause of death was and what the compelling evidence was that it was caused by the MMR. This article is horribly vague!

I am a vaccine survivor. Fortunately my mom ignored the doctor who said my random onset of seizures was normal and not related to my vaccines. My husband is a survivor of the MMR. He was found dead on the floor and had to stay in the hospital from encaphalitis for 3 months. We both have medical exemptions. Our kids will not be vaccinated.

We used to value children. Every election year, I hear many talk about how "pro-life" they are. When did we stop caring about the "quality" of children's lives? Vaccines injured both of my kids. The care they require is not covered by health insurance, so I have gone deep into debt to help them. The government would pay to institutionalize them ($100,000/yr /each), but we can't get 10% of that amount to help offset all of the expenses. Our kids need help. Their families are being devastated.

I stopped vaccinating my girls after their 4 month vaccines. If you read the manufacturer inserts for the vaccines your view of vaccines will change. Look at the efficacy of them and the side effects and compare that with the risks involved with actually getting the diseases. We decided to take our chances with the diseases. Google the name of the vaccine and "manufacturer insert" and you should find a PDF file from the manufacturer's website. Read up on homeopathy too.

Tuesday, Oct 14 at 7:04 AM Dawn wrote ...

Why aren't pharmaceutical companies separating the MMR vaccine into three parts to make it somewhat safer???? Why aren't parents getting more information??? Why aren't more pediatricians working with parents - and offering a safer vaccination schedule with separated MMR vaccine??? Of everything I have read, vaccines are not being produced nor administered safely to our children. Why not??? Madyson didn't have to die. When is our government going to start caring about our babies and children

The powers that be in our government don't care that vaccines are causing Autism and death to children. They no longer have our best interests at heart. There may come a day soon when we won't have the freedom to refuse vaccines for our kids. Please research the New World Order.

I'm from Europe and was vaccinated as a child (it's been 25 years) and so were all my class mates and noone was injured. Reading these posts, there seems to be quite a few out there that have had problems with vaccines, or more specifically their children had problems with vaccines. Have they sometime in the last 25 years changed the quality or manufacturing process of the vaccines then?

To "Not UNDERSTANDING it in MO" Obviously you're clueless about the law and a throwback to Nazi Germany as well.This was not a "nuisance" lawsuit.All vaccine injury cases must go before DOJ attys. as provided by the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Act, giving drug cos. a huge level of protection from being held liable for injuries and death from their vaccines.You cannot possibly know the health status of this child before she received vaccines.Your remarks are vile, repugnant, and evil.

Not Buying It in MO are you serious? They would have loved you in Auschwitz? It's mindsets like yours that will continue to lead to the injuries and deaths of vaccinated children. It's all just genetic, huh? Vaccines are harmless.

I know this family personally. This article is way to vague and that is the fault of the media source not the family. For those of you that are criticizing the family I feel sorry for you. This child was healthy, went to the doctor for her 12 month checkup & shots, then died. They are normal people. I believe vaccines save lives too, but they also have side effects & can cause death. There is no "test" to see how your child will react to a vaccine. Please have more compassion!

Monday, Oct 13 at 3:40 PM family friend wrote ...

I knew Madyson and her family very well. She was a beautiful and perfectly healthy baby with no problems at all. If you would take the time to research the facts before commenting you would realize that the settlement amount is a pre-set amount awarded to a family when it is proven that the vaccine caused the death. To call it a nuisance settlement is naive. Try visiting the website for Vaers before making further ridiculous comments.

Monday, Oct 13 at 3:31 PM Aaly wrote ...

Please do extensive research from trusted websites that display SCIENTIFIC evidence before getting your children vaccinated! Vaccines are NOT mandatory!

Monday, Oct 13 at 2:22 PM Not buying it in MO wrote ...

Not enough information in the article to make informed conclusions. The lawsuit, settled for a small amount, was a nuisance lawsuit (paid off rather than wasting money in court battle). What was the proof the parents presented? It's obvious that there was something wrong with the child to begin with, unfortunately. There needs to be a spay and neuter campaign for all damaged children so society is not flooded with more burdens to pay for in the future. Genetic screening is a must!

Vaccines can and do cause serious problems, including death. I am a measles, rubella, chicken pox and mumps survivor. They weren't a problem at all. Now I have lifelong immunity and a stronger immune system. What's up with all the chronically ill children now? It's completely out of control. The pharmaceutical industry gets a free pass on it all since they are liability-free. It's insane. The vaccine industry is hurting a lot more children than people realize. A lot more.

Monday, Oct 13 at 9:24 AM From a Nurse wrote ...

Vaccines have been proven to deter or reduce the disease. Measles may not cause death but it and can have serious complications. Rubella can cause death and I remember my siblings having the mumps. It was horrible. Chicken pox does not cause death but the secondary infections that set up in the open lesions due to scratching and other things is what causes the serious infections that lead to death. It can also be harmful to a unborn fetus if mom has never had them.

Lisa, we will never know what could have happened if she had not been vaccinated and gotten the measles. However, I can tell you one scenario. She might have had measles like I did as a child, spend a miserable 11 days, acquired lifetime immunity and then grown up to live a fulfilling life. I have had a happy marriage, a successful career, and raised 3 good kids. Nobody can promise me that my vaccine damage grandson will get to do those things. Measles are not without risks but neither are

"Does anyone seriously think that the vaccine is more dangerous than the disease? " Where I grew up, Europe, we all got the Measles, the Mumps and Rubella. I do not know anyone who died nor had complications. To me, it is not worth the risk to get the MMR. Parents and doctors should educate themselves on how to treat those diseases instead of creating vaccines that cause more and more devastating problems.

Madyson, you beautiful baby, I'm so sorry you died from getting a shot. I hope someday "they" will get the toxins out of the vaccines that "they" push so ruthlessly on innocent children & their loving parents.

Sunday, Oct 12 at 9:43 PM organicmommy wrote ...

Lisa you have to be kidding. The vaccine kills, measles caught by a healthy child does not kill. I would much rather my child get the measles naturally and develop an immunity then to die from a vaccine.

Sunday, Oct 12 at 8:16 PM victoria wrote ...

Well, most probably she would have fever and had to stay in bed for a few days. Measles don't kill healthy children. CDC made you belive that measles is fatal but it is not. My mom had measles and everybody in her class too and she does not recall anybody to die from it. Ten years from now people are going to talk about chicken pox as a killer of children I bet. Thanks to all the propaganda we are fed here.

Sunday, Oct 12 at 8:13 PM Anonymous MD wrote ...

What was the cause of this child's death? If it was the vaccine, then why? Why has no government or pharma entity ever systematically studied the group of kids who fell ill or died following immunization? It's one thing to have casualities in the war on disease, it's criminal to deny the causality and not investigate further! $250,000 is a joke with no apology or admission of fault--just bury the dead and move on for the good of the 'herd.' Shame on my profession.

yes, there are those who really believe that vaccinations cause more harm than good. All I can really say to any of those who feel this is a "necessary expense" is to EDUCATE BEFORE YOU VACCINATE". You may be surprised by what you learn out there (like aborted fetal cells are used in many vaccines).

My sincere condolences to the family of this little girl. To the person who posted that the measles are as dangerous as the vaccine, please research the issue. In my generation everyone had the measles. We were sent to neighbors who had the measles just to get it over with. No one was afraid. And we got life long immunity. The numbers about the dangers of measles are extrapolated from kids in Africa who are severely malnourished. Please don't blindly defend something you have not researched

Wow Lisa, what a weird comment. I was pro-vaccine untill both my children were injured by them. The first one was supposed to be a fluke. Then my second child was severely brain injured by a hepatitis B vaccine - a vaccine for a disease that he had no chance of getting. Some vaccines are unsafe and need scrutiny. Enough with the death and injury already! Parents are no longer willing to sacrafice their babies for a program that is too arogant to look at its own faults.

Sunday, Oct 12 at 12:33 PM JacobsMom wrote ...

Lisa, do you have children? Yes, I think the vaccine is more dangerous than the disease. Measles, mumps, and reubella -- look them up. And by the way, we are also being exposed to the diseases when live vaccines are used, for example, the flu shot. More people are exposed to the flu by those who just got the vaccine than by those who actually have the flu. The tragedy is that the vaccines are mandated by the government. I will go to jail before I give my children another vaccination!

Sunday, Oct 12 at 11:37 AM candle wrote ...

I can't understand some of these comments. This death is acceptable to you? Its not worth fighting for a safer vaccine schedule? What if it had been your child that had been sacrificed for the greater good? You've got to realize this is the worst case scenario: death. If death is occuring due to the MMR - you can bet that all kinds of 'lesser' reactions are happening due to this drug as well - including bowel disorders and autism.

Sunday, Oct 12 at 10:13 AM K's mom wrote ...

Easy for people say when it isn't their child that this happens to. There isn't a parent who is sanely willing to risk their child 'for the greater good'. You can take that risk with your own child but the parents who vaccinated and lost a child will never forget looking down at their child screaming as they held them down for the shot that killed.

Lisa, if this child had been left unvaccinated and contracted measles, she most likely would have been ill for a short time, cared for and fully recovered with life-long immunity to the disease. She would most likely be alive and without neurological damage. Unlike the millions of vaccine-damaged children in this generation.

Sunday, Oct 12 at 9:29 AM sarah wrote ...

the measles virus would never cause the kind of casualty and damage in a civilized country that the MMR vaccine has caused. wake up - its not just about death. This little girl is dead - but millions of others are vaccine damaged and will be disabled their entire lives due to this vaccine. Once the government actually does a study of vaccinated vs. never-vaccinated and proves that vaccines don't cause damage - then you can whine about the wild measles virus coming back into the population

I am so sorry for Garry and Rachel's loss. I appreciate that they have had the strength and courage to share this with the Media so others can be aware. Parents need to research their family health history and the vaccines in order to give "informed consent" instead of relying on their pediatricians and the medical establishment for 100% information. Vaccines are administered in a cookie cutter approach versus looking at the health history of the individual child.

And what would have happened if the child had not been vaccinated, but instead had been given measles by one of you all who are antivaccine? Does anyone seriously think that the vaccine is more dangerous than the disease? It isn't. But antivaccinists would have exposed her to measles gladly.

Big Pharam cares not one whit about this precious little baby. Why? Because they are 100% exempt from liability from injury or death due to vaccines. Most likely the parents' claim will be paid by the Vaccine Court, something that citizens pay into to resolve vaccine claims, NOT Big Pharma. My first son is severely vaccine-injured due to his MMR at 12 months, and you can bet my youngest will never receive his MMR. We are raising a nation of vaccine-injured children.

1. Development of a "Pre-Vaccination Test" that will insure the child will not be damaged 2. Do away with "One Size Shot" for all. The size of the shot should be proportion to the child's weight 3. Research to prove that their isn't any negative synergism between vaccines.

I was so sad to read this story. My own son had MMR at age 4, and having already become autistic after DPT and measles vaccination, became severely autistic and hyperactive. There is considerable scientific evidence to link MMR with damage, sometimes in rare cases fatal, to children. In contrast, the studies that "prove" MMR is safe are demonstrably worthless, usually testing the wrong hypothesis. Parents who do still have a chice, as we have in the UK, should be warned. Don't go there.

At what point will our government realize there are serious problems with our vaccine program? How many deaths will it take to sound the alarm? If they acted even half as fast on something like this as they do cleaning up after greedy executives, we might not be seeing so many children with food allergies, asthma, diabetes, autism, and a whole host of other issues that many suspect are either caused or aggravated by vaccines. More research needs to be done.

What a beautiful little girl and such a tragic shame. Hopefully, someday soon society will wake up and realize that vaccines kill more people than they actually save. They actually don't save any lives because the death count from disease has not changed with each vaccine introduced - the number of cases, but not deaths. They also leave you vulnerable in your adult years too. The CDC's solution is to revax every 10 yrs for life, despite the enormous risks.

terrible! When will we learn from this whole vaccination debacle. Someone should compile all these vaccine-related deaths and keep on sending them to CDC. AAP, presidential candidates etc. At least in Canada we don't give hep b to babies and force parents to vaccinate like you do in the United States. I don't even have a child with autism ( I chose to minimally vaccinate my son since boys seem more at risk) but I work with children in the school system and I really believe the shots do harm.

My heart goes out to this family. Vaccines need to be made safer. My son also suffered severe adverse vaccine reactions and he is now metally disabled for life. I feel that the parents right to vaccine or not vaccine should always remain in their hands. How can vaccines be made mandatory when they are a medical procedure that does have adverse reactions including death. Every person needs to consider their child's own health situation and family history before giving a vaccine.
