My Son Was Harmed by the DPT Shot | Barbara Loe Fisher

I was a first-time mom. [I had] a little boy in 1980, when I took him in for a fourth DPT shot. And back then, parents hadn’t been told anything about vaccines, the fact that they could cause reactions, injuries, deaths. So he actually had DPT and oral polio vaccine that day, and within hours of that fourth DPT shot, in 1980 at age two and a half, I witnessed reactions and I didn’t know they were reactions. He had a convulsion, a collapse shock and a brain inflammation, but because I’d been told nothing by my pediatrician about how to recognize vaccine reactions, I didn’t understand what I was witnessing. I now know he could’ve died in his bed that night. I know that if I hadn’t awakened him in the middle of this reaction, which I didn’t understand was a reaction, I think he would’ve been catastrophically brain injured. What happened after that shot is that he regressed… physically, mentally and emotionally and became a totally different child.

    So sad. Thankfully, my pediatrician in 1978 was concerned about giving my low birth weight baby the DPT. So, at 2 months she only gave him 1/3 of the dose, but also on the day he got his oral polio. He started that blood curdling scream a few hours later and from then on was stiff whenever we picked him up. He started picking up his head and banging it on the mattress or whatever surface he was on. That was back when babies slept on their stomachs. The head banging continued for nearly 5 years. At one point he split the side rail to his crib. The doctor never said it was from the DPT, but she never gave him the full dose. She later was on the NIH committee that put out this report: Adverse Effects of Pertussis and Rubella Vaccines: A Report of the Committee to Review the Adverse Consequences of Pertussis and Rubella Vaccines.

    This is a summary and food for thought for pharmaceuticals and vaccines.
    1. All pharmaceuticals and vaccines compromise the immune system and have side effects.
    2. A vaccine may be effective creating antibodies, but it doesn’t mean it will protect you from getting sick. That is why people who get measles or flu vaccine get sick. People who don’t vaccinate is not the reason.
    3. Our government and the Supreme Court knows that vaccines aren’t safe. The VAERS program was set up for people who are damaged to sue our government. So far, 4 billion dollars has been paid out. That is a small fraction of people who have been damaged.
    4. All vaccines have toxic chemicals in them. The flu vaccine has mercury in it and if you break a container, by law, a hazmat team has to clean it up.
    5. Parents who have autistic children and can’t take care of them anymore. Are they going to be dumped in a institution or on the streets? So far, it’s 1 out of 36 who are autistic today. “CDC is paralyzed right now when it comes to anything to do with autism,” explains former senior vaccine safety scientist Dr. William Thompson, who is still a CDC employee. Thompson told Congressman Bill Posey under oath that CDC bigwigs ordered him to destroy data that showed a link between autism and vaccines and to publish a fraudulent study dismissing the link. Today, he is remorseful, “When I see a family with a child with autism, I feel great shame because I have been part of the problem.”
    6. The U.S.A. Is number 1 in infant mortality. According to the schedule and after they are born, they get a Hep B vaccine.
    7. CDC is a vaccine company; it owns 56 vaccine patents and buys and distributes $4.6 billion in vaccines annually through the Vaccines for Children program, which is over 40% of its total budget. Can they really be trusted to test vaccine safety? Vaccines are tested a shorter amount of time, compared to pharmaceuticals. They aren’t tested to a inert placebo.
    8. Mainstream and social media outlets which collectively received $9.6 billion in revenues from pharmaceutical companies in 2016 have convinced themselves they are protecting public health by aggressively censoring criticism of these coercively mandated, zero liability, and untested pharmaceutical products.
    9. Some people think certain diseases have been eliminated because of vaccines. Look at the charts and when they were introduced. The Black Plague went away without a vaccine. Other diseases are still with us because they have mutated or are being called a different name. You can’t eliminate something when you have the virus in the vaccine. The vaccine is supposedly there to teach the immune system what to look for. There are other viruses and contaminates in vaccines that will cause you other problems. Cancer can be a side effect for all pharmaceuticals and vaccines. There is no testing on how all these things added together will affect you. Cancer is big bucks to the medical system.
    10. In 1910, we had 1 out of 100,000 people who had diabetes, very little heart disease and no dementia. We did have some people who were a little senile. As time went by and the addition of pharmaceuticals and vaccines, we are getting sicker. Forty or fifty years ago, our medical system told us to eat low fat, low cholesterol, low sodium, and low what ever. This is not working, because heart disease, cancer, dementia, and other related conditions are at the top of the list. God made our bodies to run on vitamins and minerals and not pharmaceuticals. There are natural remedies for cancer, diabetes, heart disease, dementia, and every affliction known to man. We should also be eating fresher food without sprays and additives. This is America and we should all be working together to make this place better. In a free and open society, the response to difficult questions should never be to shut down debate. I want everybody to be healthy and have great memories. Amen.

    Is there a version of this video anywhere that does not have non-english captions embedded in it?

    Like Barbara, I was a new mom in 1986. I vividly recall the first “well baby” visit at 2 months. While sitting in the waiting room, I picked up a copy of TIME magazine on the table. There was an article on the DPT shot and how some children were experiencing damaging effects, even death, after cumulative shots. After examining my daughter and proclaiming her healthy, the pediatrician said this visit included a series of vaccinations including DPT. I showed him the article but he said it was rare, followed by the suggestion that vaccines would protect her from these diseases. With no internet or other possible means of research, I gave my agreement. It wasn’t until the 4th round that I noticed a change in her demeanor. She became sullen, losing her joyful demeanor. She was often ill and suffered from constant ear infections. When she began school, she struggled with reading. It wasn’t until middle school that she was diagnosed with dyslexia and ADHD. Now an adult, she still suffers from migraines, memory loss and she is emotionally fragile. Needless to say, she has refused to have her daughter, who just turned 3, vaccinated. We reside in NYS, which dropped the religious exemption, As of next week, my granddaughter can no longer attend daycare. Ironically, she is the healthiest of all the children. She has an ebullient personality that attracts adults and children alike. Such a happy child will now be shunned by the public and private school systems. She will be with me and I plan to help her learn as she grows. It’s a physical challenge as I have health issues.

    I received an expired tetanus combo shot 9 days before conceiving my 1st daughter in October 1999. She was born with an inoperable brain cyst and is mentally handicapped. My 2nd daughter battles type 1 diabetes; my 3rd daughter was born with cranialsynostosis; and I battle breast cancer on my left side which is the side the tetanus shot was given. The medical records prove my shot expired. Myself and my daughters have all bared the reprocusions.
