14 Month Old Side Effects From Swine Flu Vaccine - Doctor and CDC say No Link 12/10.09 7:11am

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- A family whose child received the swine flu vaccine claims it had a serious adverse effect, but some doctors doubt it.

Elisha Garcia said her 14-month-old daughter Mykaylah was born premature and suffers from epilepsy.

"We got her to where she needed to be. We got her seizures under control and she was the happiest little girl," said Elisha Garcia.

Both parents claim it all changed after a visit to their daughter's doctor. Her dad, Damian Garcia, said they were told she should get the swine flu vaccine.

"'It is OK. They haven't found anything wrong with it.' And I said, 'Are you sure?'" Damian Garcia said.

Both parents said they were convinced and Mykaylah got the shot.

"In that two-week period after that, she just started gradually going down and going down," Damian Garcia said. "She would stand up and she would just collapse over."

Tests were done and Mykaylah was diagnosed with ataxia, meaning she has trouble controlling her movements. Her parents claim a neurologist told them the swine flu vaccine could possibly have been a factor, maybe the result of an adverse effect.

Both parents said that there was no doubt the vaccine may have caused the side effect, but one doctor refuted their claims.

"There is no evidence, from the close surveillance, that CDC is giving this vaccine, that there is any such reaction," said pediatrician Dr. Lance Chilton.

Chilton said it's a vaccine that could save lives and he tells his patients to get it.

"I think there is good evidence that No. 1: that it is safe; No. 2: that it is effective and No. 3: that the influenza could come back and hit us as hard as it did in 1957," Chilton said.

  1. "There is no evidence...that there is any such reaction"?

    Ah, is this guy on the same planet as we are? For him to make such a statement, I am assuming that the WHO and CDC are working to suppress the real life stories. How totally irresponsible. Must get all his info from the lamestream media.
