Letter: Terrible side effects experienced by family
Re “Vaccines raise many questions; parents shouldn’t be bullied” (Monitor Opinion page, Aug. 13):
Stephanie Foisy Mills and the Concord Monitor deserve a standing ovation. I never questioned vaccines until my baby and I were injured by them in 2007. I suffered from permanent partial hearing loss from a rubella vaccine, and he suffered from high-pitched screaming (encephalitis), cellulitis, seizures and so much more from his DTaP, HIB and IPV vaccines. I cannot tell you the nightmare that my family has endured to recover him from his injuries. He had extensive damage to his central nervous system. I became so angry that every symptom we experienced was listed as a potential side effect to the shots we were given! That same year, that I realized there were three other victims in my family – including one death.
Yes, the website Mills cites is wonderful. You can also Google “Vaccine package insert” to see the side effects listed. Lastly, be sure to read Fear of the Invisible by Janine Roberts and Vaccine Safety Manual by Neil Z. Miller to further educate yourself. You simply cannot argue with the hundreds of government sources cited in these books.
