This is the story of vaccine injured brothers, as told by their mother, Cheryl Peeples (Pontotoc, MS)
I have two boys who have both had vaccine reactions. I would like you to share their stories.
Son 1 born in 1996
Developed normally. FULLY vaccinated.
Following his second MMR, he had a classic reaction to this vaccine. It came at about 10 days following the vaccine, which is also typical. For 10 days he had intense abdominal pain. He alternated between diarrhea and constipation. The first diagnosis was that stool was causing the pain.
After more than 1 trip to a doctor, we were sent to the ER. The physician said this was due to a virus. I never put the two together. Within months, he was diagnosed with ADD, after never having had attention problems at all. He is still plagued with this today. A doctor out of state who treats patients with Autism said he should never have another vaccine or he could tip the scale into Autism.
Son 2 born in 2000
Developed normally until age 2 months.
He received his one and only shot with thimerosal (mercury). It was 1999 when the AAP suggested that thimerosal be removed from vaccines. They did not ask them to remove them from the shelves though.
After this shot, DTaP, my son began to have a myriad of problems: ear infections, reflux, food allergies, and his head size began to grow exponentially. He was very much within the normal range before, but it grew to the 90% range within months.
In 2003, a study was published in JAMA detailing this and said it was an early warning sign of Autism. In January of 2002, he received another DTaP and an MMR at the same visit. Within a week, he was running a fever, coughing and congestion. With in a few days, he developed a rash all over his body, a knot on his neck, increased fever, a yellow discharge from his eyes.
Our pediatrician never mentioned the vaccine as a culprit. He stopped progressing. I mentioned this to the pediatrician and he told me he was a late talker. For a year this went on until finally I asked for a script for an evaluation with a speech pathologist. She was the first person to mention Autism. I asked for a script for an OT evaluation and received the same diagnosis. Never once got this from the pediatrician, though he did say if they said that, he agreed.
We began therapy immediately. This was two months before his fourth birthday and he was still not putting two words together. We never vaccinated him again at the advice of our out of state doctor. Also we ran titers on him for every vaccine he had had and he showed immunity to all of them! With the MMR, he showed excessive high levels of each component. I would refer you to Wakefields study.
We see a different pediatrician now, but they still want to vaccinate him. He is home schooled and will never get another vaccine. We have been treating him biomedically and with therapy for 10 years now and have spent thousands of dollars. The party line that says there is no connection between Autism and vaccines ignores many many unbiased studies showing the opposite. We still see the lasting effects from the vaccines.

below are photos of Cheryl's youngest son.
"The first was taken when he was 2 years old, around the time of the last vaccines. The second is at 3, when he was diagnosed. The photo shoot from hell. Not sparkle in his eyes and puffy. The last is after a year of therapy and beginning biomedical treatment. The sparkle came back."
Cheryl's story is a familiar one.
Vaccines can and do cause autism in a subset of susceptible children. #hearthiswell
