Have you or a loved one suffered unexpected side effects from a vaccine? Government statistics report that About 30,000 adverse events believed to related to unexpected side effects from a vaccine are reported to the government each year. Countless others may never realize that a sudden change in health was due a side effect from a vaccine.
In fact, each year, American babies (1 year old and younger) receive more than 10 million vaccinations. During the first year of life, a significant number of babies suffer serious, life-threatening illnesses and medical events, such as Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). Additionally, it is during the first year that congenital conditions may become evident. Therefore, due to chance alone, many babies will experience a medical event in close proximity to a vaccination. This does not mean, though, that the event is in fact related to the immunization. The challenge is to determine when a medical event is directly related to a vaccination.
