“In 2007 my son was injured by vaccination. He is now 14 years old and requires 24/7 care.
He is our third child and was an absolute dream of a baby. Healthy, happy every waking moment, interactive and developed entirely normally, meeting all of his milestones… until he had his 12 month vaccinations.
At that appointment, the nurse said he had to have some catch ups as he had missed some that are done here in Oz but not in NZ (where we spent the first seven months of his life). She went and spoke to a doctor and came back and said he would have to have four needles instead of two. I asked her if it is safe to do that many at once. She scoffed at me and said "of course it is, otherwise we wouldn't do it, would we?".
So instead of two jabs covering 4 diseases, he had four jabs covering 7 diseases.
Over the following weeks he lost most of his motor skills and all of his communication. Interaction all but gone, he no longer played appropriately with toys, instead lining them all up and grouping things together. He would often just watch the wheel spin on toy cars. He now has severe non verbal autism and intellectual disability.”
