I have two children. I always believed that I had to vaccinate to protect my kids, I even got the flu shot when I was pregnant. My first child used to suffer some mild reactions which I was told was normal. She developed an egg allergy, but I never really made the connection. It wasn’t until my second child was born that I really noticed and paid attention. He was born at full term by C-section and was a very healthy baby boy.
From his first vaccination of Vitamin K I noticed the colour of his skin change. He went on to develop rashes and fevers. With every vaccination things became worse.
At six months old he suffered his first anaphylactic food allergy, something that has carried on for the last seven years. At 15 months his speech slowed down and he started sleeping a lot. He just wasn’t the same.
By the time his four-year-old vaccinations rolled around I was extremely hesitant. I was told by medical staff that my ‘claims’ were unfounded and complete nonsense, that vaccinations did not cause autism or speech delays and that if I did not vaccinate him, he would be exiled from day-care and school. Sadly, he got the shots.
After this vaccination he regressed behaviourally, socially and academically. It was a steep decline. It has taken us the last four years to begin to undo the complex damage caused to my perfect little boy. We are still not out of the woods - our lives have been turned upside down.
I am so thankful for this movement, that we can come together and share our truths. Knowing I am not alone gives me strength and courage. Courage to push back. I am now an informed person who will continue to question the validity and the efficacy of anything that anyone seeks to put into my body or the bodies of my children.
It’s been seven years since anyone in my family received a vaccination and I am thankful to be on this journey now. There are too many “coincidences” when it comes to vaccines. I strongly encourage every single parent out there to do their own research before vaccinating their children.
My daughter Isabella was born healthy, thriving and very alert.
She received all vaccinations as per the schedule starting with Vitamin K and Hep B at birth. It wasn’t until her four-month vaccinations that we noticed changes in our baby, immediately following these shots Bella developed respiratory issues that resulted in croup.
A heaving chest on a baby is a scary thing to witness especially when they are gasping for air. We rushed to the hospital where she was formally diagnosed. When I asked if it was related to the vaccines, I was told that she was already getting sick and it was just a coincidence. Over the next two months Bella developed dark circles under her eyes and she barely slept.
When she received her six-month vaccinations, she developed croup once again – another rush to the emergency room confirmed it. For the next two months her entire body started to spasm. She would zone out, then both her arms and legs would become stiff like she was having a seizure. This would happen at least five times a day. She also developed blinking episodes that resembled tic behaviour.
Between her six and eight-month shots, we started playing a game which she loved… roll the ball, where we would roll the ball back and forth to one another. At the eight-month wellness check I asked the nurse her advice on the developments with Bella. The response was that all babies have their own quirkiness and said my child was developing fine. She pointed out that she babbles, smiles, she’s attempting to say words and sits on her own. She told me to stop reading the misinformation about vaccine reactions and autism because it’s rare. Worth noting, I had not brought up autism at this stage. Not happy with this answer I took Bella to the GP. He was unable to observe a spasm episode during the appointment, so told me to go home and keep an eye on her.
Before her 12-month vaccination appointment, Bella got sick. The health nurse insisted on vaccinating her with the MMR – I refused. I told her she was sick, and that I didn’t feel comfortable. I then asked about autism. I asked about how doctors in America are speaking out on the triple antigen vaccine trying to get the vaccines split back out into single doses. She called me “stupid” and said that there is no evidence to suggest that vaccines cause autism. She lied and said it was hereditary. I advised since she said it was hereditary that I would need to speak to my family and husband’s family to confirm. After confirming that there was no autism on both sides of the family, I had strong gut instincts that deterred me from taking her to those shots. However, my husband said, “what are the odds? Your sister’s kids are vaccinated, and they are fine”. My gut instincts were saying NO but I gave in. I decided I was not taking her in to receive the shots, so hubby took her while I waited outside.
BIG mistake. Bella immediately started screaming and could not be settled. In the days following there was an onslaught of issues; she began banging her head, continued to be miserable, crying uncontrollably, her respiratory issues flared up, constant runny nose, her eyes were bulging out of her eye socket. We rushed to the hospital and after telling them that this was a direct result after her being injected with the MMR, we were advised it was a coincidence and they sent us home. We fought for tests, but they said NO.
The next 12 months were the biggest roller coaster. She was sick every second week. Every second week we were at the hospital emergency department. That place became a home away from home.
Her appetite changed and feeding became a struggle. At 16 months I attempted to play roll the ball with her and was met with a blank stare and no attempt to engage with the ball at all. After numerous attempts I gave up hoping this was just a bad day. It was around this time she began to arm flap.
At 17.5 months old we put her in childcare to give her an opportunity to interact with peers of her own age. Shortly after she began attending, I received a concerned phone call from the Centre expressing concerns regarding her development. They advised that Bella was not responding to her name consistently and she wasn’t trying to attempt to say any words. It was suggested we get her ears checked so we did. The results came back all clear.
I knew deep down my daughter was struggling, her regression was gradual. At 2.5 years old she was diagnosed with mild or moderate autism. She is now nine years old and the diagnosis is severe. She is nonverbal, every aspect of her life is filled with therapy, holistic doctor appointments, tutoring… the list is endless.
The Dtap vaccine inserts at the time stated infantile spasms as a known reaction. I reported her reactions to the TGA as neither the health nurse or GP would do it. The lack of support from the medical profession, which pushes these unsafe and untested vials of poison into our children, is ludicrous.
I may have lost the happy memories of being a first-time mum, but vaccines have robbed my daughter of the opportunity to live a normal life. That is something I will never be able to reconcile.
The medical establishment is gaslighting all of us, I know they have done it to me. The fact is I have been told by doctors and advertising that vaccines are safe, with no evidence other than words. The truth: this is all lies.
In hindsight, my daughter’s health issues began to surface at around four years of age. Firstly it was gut issues and OCD which she has finally been diagnosed with a few years ago, both of which I have learned can be linked to autism.
Her main condition causes chronic pain, which has also led to mental health disorders including Tourette's which I am still being told by her medical team, would not be a result of vaccine injury. However Robert F Kennedy Jnr has shared this as a listed side effect of some vaccines.
It is really tough when even my daughter that has these conditions, is confused and scared and doesn't want me to question her medical team 'too much' because she depends on them for future treatments.
This industry, the damage caused and the circus that surrounds diagnosis and treatment is exhausting and truly sad.
“My baby had every possible side effect to vaccines except for death.
We have medical backgrounds within my family, so I never thought twice about vaccinating my kids to the CDC schedule. With the eldest of my two children, the complications were evident after every round of shots from the outset. She would get extremely sick, suffer high fevers and not be herself for the entire week after, sometimes longer.
At six months old she was diagnosed with anaphylactic food allergies. I had to rush her to the hospital twice because the doctors put such fear in me, that every time she got a hive, I thought she was going to stop breathing. She suffered horrible eczema, asthma attacks, weakened immune system, allergies, behavioural issues, auto-immune issues - you name it!
It wasn't until her 18-month shots that I decided enough is enough. I haven't given her a single needle since and I have been spending so much time and effort detoxing her from the vaccines. Now with my second daughter I have zero intentions of ever vaccinating her.
She hasn't met with one single vaccine and the difference in her overall health, development and behaviour is remarkable. Thriving and striving ahead of milestones, no allergies and just overall wellbeing. You can tell the difference, it's like night and day.
My heart aches knowing that under the guise of thinking I was protecting my first daughter; I actually made her sick. I try not to beat myself up over it daily, but that's a constant struggle. I tell my story to hopefully help more parents be aware of the dangers of vaccines and side effects.
As I am opening up and share with friends around me, the number of parents I know who feel the same way is overwhelming. Vaccines are not good, plain and simple.”
When my daughter was 10 weeks old, she died in my arms for 14 minutes.
I have seven children. When it was time to have her two-month inoculations, I piled the kids in the car and off we went. On our way home my tiny baby started swelling up. My 14-year-old daughter says from the middle row of seats that she was getting welts all over her neck and chin and she was starting to look like a bullfrog. I pulled over off the M7 to a spot, ripped her out of her seat and could see it was a full-blown anaphylactic reaction (I know this because I am allergic to bees).
I rang triple 0 who told me to get off at the nearest crossroad. I pulled up to a set of lights and got out of the car. My 14-year-old stayed in the car trying to calm her then five and seven-year-old siblings, who were screaming that their baby sister was dying because she was going blue.
I held my baby in my arms waiting at the intersection for the ambulances that had been dispatched to me, as advised by the woman on the phone. Four sets of lights came and went, and still no sign of the ambos. My son was now standing on the median strip keeping a look out and looking to me for assurance, but I started to lose my ability to stay calm as she choked and stopped breathing. She was grey and limp in my arms. I was crying and screaming down the phone at the woman "she's not breathing, she's not breathing!". My daughters were screaming hysterically from the back of the car. Time moved so slowly. I couldn't see or hear anything, I was just standing there holding a limp, blue, 10-week-old baby. I knew I was unable to resuscitate her because it was an anaphylactic reaction, and I know it was because of the needle the doctor gave her.
All of a sudden at the same time, two ambulances arrived from different directions as I stood there frozen, crying and holding my lifeless newborn baby. A paramedic jumped out and came running over to me, grabbed her and ran back to the ambulance cutting her clothes off as he went. Another paramedic came over and took my 14-year-old daughter to go with them, telling me they would be rushing her to the Children's hospital and I was to meet them there.
I arrived there to see her being worked on as they were running out the back of the ambulance, my 14-year old’s face white with tears streaming down her cheeks. Thankfully, they were able to resuscitate her... and the agonising wait for her to respond to me began. It took what felt like forever, but she eventually did.
It was some days before she was allowed home, but she was never the same again. She would scream all of the time and stared blankly at everything, constantly squirming like she was in pain. She was always sick. Between the ages of two and four she had 18 hospital admissions for tonsilitis, bronchitis and glandular fever, a multitude of anaphylactic reactions to various foods and drinks. She didn't talk, she just screamed - the screaming never stopped. When she started preschool she was diagnosed with autism, developmental delay and a handful of other things. She was deaf in her left ear and only had 20% hearing in her right. She has had two surgeries on her ears and has more lined up for this year as they are still declining. She has bad allergies to lots of different things and we are constantly in a variety of therapies for her.
The most shocking part of this story is that she was vaccinated without my consent. I was working for this doctor at the time, and he just went ahead and gave it to her - catching me off guard. He went on to delete all the information on vaccinating her and denied it. What he has done is beyond immoral.
Even knowing how she reacted, the doctors still want to vaccinate her, just at the vaccine centre at the Children's hospital just in case she has another reaction - I'm sorry, WHAT? After years and years of therapy, surgeries and rehabilitation you want me to give her more? That will not be happening to her or any of us! 💛
My daughter had Vitamin K and Hep B at birth, and then her 6-week shots.
Following her 6 week shots she would have screaming fits, crying uncontrollably, until she was completely red in the face and her silent reflux seemed to have taken a turn for the worse rather than getting better with age. She had the seizure the day before she was due for her 4 month injections. That’s when we voiced our concerns and looked at holding off from vaccinations until we could monitor her.
I asked if there was any link to seizures and vaccines. The doctor said it was highly unlikely. We also received no further information on follow up visits, no referral to a neuro-paediatric specialist or any way of knowing how to look into finding out if there was an underlying problem... but he was happy to go ahead with more shots and overload her body with toxins before getting to the root cause of the problems.
When my child was due for her 4-month vaccinations I had some questions about the number of vaccines there were in the first 6 months, and how come there is a Hep B shot at birth when I had it in primary school and survived without it? I tried speaking to the doctor about my concerns and I was brushed off, he said "Oh yeah I know, I find it really hard to keep up with the growing list of immunisations ha-ha". These words absolutely petrified me. I failed to understand how this was a laughing matter.
I continued to ask questions and asked if there would be any harm in delaying them. He said this wouldn't be a problem as the baby won’t be around anyone due to Covid. Then I proceeded to tell him that I read the insert for rotavirus and it mentions in there that it should not be administered to children over 24 weeks of age and he said to me point blank "I have no idea about that, you will have to speak to the nurse about it". I made my decision then and there; I thanked him for his time, and I left.
In my opinion, I will decide when my child is to have them. I want to ensure she is reaching ALL her milestones AND furthermore, I will also be looking into the ingredients in the foods she eats as the additives in our food are just as harmful as some ingredients in vaccines.”
Safe and effective. That is what we are being led to believe about the Oxford/AstraZeneca Covid-19 Vaccine, which the Australian Government intends to roll out in a few short months. In the budget handed down just a few days ago, under key Covid-related assumptions, it states “a population-wide Australian Covid-19 vaccination program is assumed to be fully in place by late 2021, with social distancing restrictions continuing until a vaccine is fully available”.
This means that there is a “mandatory as possible” (as per our Prime Minister) vaccine heading our way, so let us take a look at these claims of safety and effectiveness for the Oxford/AstraZeneca Vaccine as per the Prime Minister’s media release dated 7 September 2020. This media release claims “The University of Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine is world leading, having entered Phase three trials. To date it has generated strong immune responses, with no significant safety concerns.” This is not entirely true.
It has been well documented by many global news sources that trials of this particular vaccine were halted on or around the 10th of September, due to a participant in the UK contracting what is believed to be transverse myelitis after receiving her second dose of the vaccine. This put trials of the vaccine on hold in all locations across the globe including the US, South Africa, and Brazil, in addition to the UK.
As is common during vaccine trials, this diagnosis has never been confirmed. There has been no conclusion on this case, which is of significant concern. The trials have restarted around the globe, in all locations with the exclusion of the US, which is still on pause on the 17th of October 2020.
Transverse myelitis is an inflammation of the spinal cord, a major part of the central nervous system. Its symptoms vary from mild to severe, with the seriously affected suffering permanent impairments that impact their ability to perform ordinary tasks of daily living.
Shockingly, transverse myelitis is listed as a potential side effect on the package inserts for commonly administered vaccines such as MMR, Gardasil, and Hepatitis B – with the latter being administered on day one of life, before any allergies can be ascertained.
An especially important fact due to the acceleration to market for this vaccine, is that the animal testing phase has been skipped altogether. This is quite significant when coupled with the evidence that the vaccine industry has unsuccessfully progressed testing beyond this stage for a coronavirus vaccine in three decades.
Oddly enough, the effectiveness of the Covid-19 vaccine will only need to be set at around 50% to receive the green light from the FDA.
Thomas Lumley, a biostatistician at the University of Auckland in New Zealand has said “The companies are aiming for the vaccines to stop at least 50% of vaccinated people getting symptomatic COVID-19, the definition of success in the FDA guideline, but they are hoping for an efficacy of 60% or greater. But even 60% would not be enough to reach herd immunity, in which enough of the population has vaccine-derived immunity to stop the disease spreading”.
The Australian Government has committed $1.7 billion dollars in the supply and production agreement for this vaccine, stating in this media release that there will be 3.8 million doses available in January and February 2021.
According to the latest CDC data, Covid-19 has a >99.4% survival rate across all ages. The question we have to ask ourselves is a rushed-to-market vaccine, with no long-term safety studies, skipping animal testing in trials, which is only around 50% effective and potentially carries severe risks like transverse myelitis… something we really need?
“During my pregnancy I did hypnobirthing and came across lots of information about consent and also natural ways in which to birth the baby rather than induction, epidural and other medical interventions. This opened my eyes to a more holistic approach when my daughter was born, I avoided toxic baby products and brought my mind to thinking about vaccines. I have never had the flu vaccination thinking ‘why have something injected into you that could give you the flu when you could protect yourself in a more natural way?’ It has never made sense to me.
I didn’t have the flu shot during pregnancy, even though it was pushed and pushed. My daughter has not had it either even though it has been mentioned lots of times by the nurses at the GP surgery. Other than the MMR vaccination (which I did have doubts about due to a friend’s child who was vaccine damaged by it), I didn’t think twice about vaccinating my daughter.
Approaching her 12-month vaccinations, I decided to book the MMR needle a week apart from the others. She was fine straight after the vaccination but then a week later came down with a fever that lasted nine days. At this time she had also just started to walk, and we noticed that she became extra clumsy and wobbly on her feet, even childcare mentioned it and said she wasn’t herself, being very clumsy and walking into things.
I had to cancel the other 12-month vaccinations because she wasn’t well and rebooked for the week after. When I returned I mentioned the reaction my daughter had to the nurses and their response was that wasn’t normal for the vaccine to do that and it probably wasn’t the vaccine that caused it and that maybe it was teething. Teething! It was just shrugged off.
The following week after the other vaccinations my daughter developed eczema on her legs. She had never had one spot of eczema before this vaccination and now it pops up here and there. I have recently been researching vaccinations (rushed Covid vax has urged me to do this), and my eyes are open to all the terrible toxins in them and the side effects they carry. I have cancelled my daughters MMR booster and other 18-month vaccinations, and she will not be having any of them. I am now seeking a medical exemption for her for future vaccinations, which is proving tricky, but I will not allow her to be vaccinated again.” 💛
At two years of age I was rushed to hospital by my mum with an Asthma attack never having Asthma before then. All of a sudden, I was allergic to food preservatives. As I grew, I couldn't run more than a couple of kilometres without having an Asthma attack. I realised quickly the Asthma medication doesn't help, it's merely a Band-Aid.
I ended up on an electric asthma machine for most of my childhood. Probably had it most nights. Anytime I would run around with my cousins I would have to take a break and go on the machine. A few times over the years I had to be taken to hospital because I was really unwell.
I had a super weak immune system and was always sick, I was like that until about 15 years old.
Couldn't eat any food colouring, preservatives... all soft drinks, lollies, flavoured chips, flavoured ice cream would trigger an asthma attack. I also had a reaction to animal fur. The Asthma medication turned into a Ventolin inhaler around 12 years old. I was unable to play sport most of my childhood as I was incapable, I was really skinny.
My Mum was great, taking me to many different doctors... trying everything. We came upon a Doctor that was across many fields and highly educated. Found out I had a fungus in the lung and my immune system was compromised. Changed a lot of things to do with my lifestyle and one of the first things he did was remove the asthma medication, as it makes it worse not better. Over the years I fixed my body and I am no longer allergic to anything, and I haven't had asthma in years and years.
My mum knows what caused it, she can only put it down to vaccines as I was a healthy baby.
I am one of the lucky ones. It’s phenomenal the amount of people who I speak to about vaccines and adverse reactions to do with food allergies and asthma. I don't know how these pharmaceutical companies and doctors get away with it.
I wanted to share my story of hope, I would just like to put the word out there that these things don't have to last forever, and the body is resilient if you feed it the right things.
My baby brother was born perfect and healthy then after his six months shots he suddenly got sick. He was rushed to Westmead’s Children Hospital and within a few days of jaundice symptoms we got a devastating leukaemia diagnosis. He passed six weeks later.
Another “coincidence”? Because I’ve heard from the science that “correlation is not causation” and “the science is settled”.
However, after reading countless stories similar to ours that within hours, days or weeks a baby takes a turn for the worse and that the insert itself that states Vaccines have “never tested for carcinogenic potential”
I just can’t help but think there are just too many coincidences. Just like ours. All around the world.” 💔
