Many parents who choose to vaccinate, do so cautiously. Rather than following the recommended CDC childhood vaccine schedule in which infants and young children are given as many as ten different vaccines at one time; some parents choose to delay or spread out vaccines, hoping to minimize possible adverse effects. Sadly, as you will read below, even one vaccine can have diastrous results.
Below is Colt's story as told by his mother, Amber, who like so many parents of vaccine injured children, shares her son's story in an effort to save other children from harm and families from the heartache that vaccines can and do cause.
"I use to vaccinate on a very delayed schedule, never more then one injection in a visit. My son got his first varicella vaccine at 5 years old. Within a few minutes of leaving the doctor's office, Colt threw up, passed out, choked on his puke and stopped breathing. My husband ran him from the parking lot into ER lifeless! My son was in full blown anaphylactic shock, was put on a ventilator, was having seizures, flat lining, being shocked back to life, which shoved the breathing tube too far and collapsed a lung.
It was touch and go for a few hours, we were life flighted to a close by children's ICU. After 48 hours on a breathing machine, and more medicine than I've had in my life, my baby boy started breathing his own breaths while still on the machine. He fought a horrible battle all due to having a vaccine reaction. I will never take a chance of any vaccine on my children again!!
Colt carries an EpiPen, uses daily inhaler and liquid medication to control asthma, and one for fast relief. He can't tolerate any gelatin (it's in some vaccines including varicella) We were always told he had eczema, but come to find out it's a food allergy. Now that we've cut it out of his diet, his skin is eczema free. This fall he tested high on the dyslexia scale. We're working five days a week with a reading analyst, and twice a week with speech therapy."
Colt will turn six years old in spring, 2017. Fortunately, he survived his vaccine injury. Many childen do not. However, Colt and his family will live with the longterm effects of his vaccine injury, perhaps for the rest of Colt's life. Delaying vaccines or spreading them out is no guarantee that you or your child will escape vaccine injury or death. Please educate before you vaccinate. Read vaccine package inserts. Ask questions.
"Seems like since my eyes have been opened to the dangers, I read stories and meet people on a regular basis, affected by vaccines. It's absolutely heartbreaking."
