These Girls Got Paralyzed Because Of A Vaccine Against HPV
Two girls from the UK revealed their story after vaccination against HPV. They believed that doing the right thing for themselves, and now they are paralyzed from the neck down.
Although healthcare and researches claims that the HPV vaccine is safe, these two teenage girls regret for taken it.
Ruby Shallom from the UK had no idea what would happen after taking third vaccines, which are proven to be effective in the fight against human papilloma virus that can cause cervical cancer. Hers eight peers already received the third dose, therefore she wasn’t fearful of the possible consequences. After thawing, she and some of her friends felt bad, had dizziness, and they had a stomachache. At first they thought it was normal. Ruby is now paralyzed from the neck down and can only use her left hand, and she believes that the last dose of the vaccine is the cause of her current situation.
– I’ve never been afraid of vaccination, I wasn’t worried at all – said the 16-year-old girl from Berkshire and added:
I come from a family that vaccination is normally and believes it helps. My mother told me that before I never had a bad reaction to the vaccine. After going for the third dose of the vaccine, which prevents the development of HPV, Ruby had terrible cramps and felt the pain in her stomach.
– I went to the hospital, but the pain only got worse, my heart began to throb uncontrollably, it was terrible.
During the first weeks, Ruby has five times been in the hospital. For the next few months she suffered from nausea and chronic fatigue. She had trouble walking. In March 2016, suddenly become paralyzed.
The doctors said that there is a possibility that the vaccine damaged Ruby’s immune system, despite claims by the leading pharmaceutical companies in the vaccine is completely safe, according to The Mirror.
– Some doctors told me that the vaccine caused the initial problem and all her health problems result from that, said Ruby’s mother, Nicole, and added: “Doctors do not want to write the report or Ruby’s medical records. One of the doctors said that although the vaccine is very likely caused the paralysis of my daughter, but not on any other doctor would not admit it openly. In her medical chart says that her condition caused by a mental disorder.
Mother of 12-year-old Mia Blesky: My daughter after the vaccine also remained paralyzed
– Mia, normal, happy, healthy girl until the day she received the vaccine against HPV, in September 2016. The very next day she felt bad. She woke up with pain in both sides of the spine, her legs were unstable and it was hard to walk upright – told her mother Gina (37).
As the months passed, Mia’s situation deteriorated. First her legs gave up, and after six months Mia is completely lost sensation in her hands. Just like in Ruby’s case, doctors assume that her condition caused by the vaccine, but do not want to write such a report, and she was diagnosed with a mental disorder which eventually caused the paralysis.
