Since the late 80s, pharmaceutical companies have spent millions of dollars compensating victims of vaccines. While most doctors insist that flu shots are “extremely safe,” a 9-year-old child was left paralyzed after receiving the vaccine.
Doctors say the child's recovery could take for a year and some of her symptoms may be permanent. Since receiving the vaccine, young Brianna Browning was left paralyzed and bedridden.
Flu shots are one of the most common childhood vaccines in the US but it's also one of the most controversial. In fact, the NVICP acknowledge at least 180 cases of vaccines injuries, 134 of which received compensation from Big Pharma.
A nine-year-old girl from the Texas coast is bedridden at the Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston after being injured by a flu shot, according to a recent report by KRTK-TV.
Brianna Browning, a fourth-grader from Crystal Beach, Texas, was “perfectly healthy” before being injected with a flu vaccine at Bolivar Peninsula School.
Now, she is paralyzed from the waist down and completely blind. Her symptoms started about eight hours after receiving a flu shot when her mother said she began “profusely vomiting,” which continued into the next day.
Browning received the shot on Thursday, and by Saturday she was paralyzed from the waist down, said her parents, adding that it appeared as if she had had a seizure.
Doctors have diagnosed Browning with Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis (ADEM), which is known to be triggered by vaccines.
It’s unclear what type of flu shot the young girl received.
A Galveston County family is convinced their daughter has suffered a rare reaction to the flu shot and now they are searching for answers.
Brianna Browning, 9, has been in the hospital since October 17th. Her parents say one day she was healthy and the next, she was paralyzed and losing her vision.
“It’s horrible. It kills us,” said Johnny Alexander, the girl’s stepfather.
The 4th grader who loves to run, jump and play in the sand got a flu shot at her school on Bolivar Peninsula October 15th. Then her health went downhill.
“Eight hours later she was profusely vomiting and again Friday morning. Saturday, she was paralyzed from the waist down, blind and seemed like she had a seizure,” Brenda Faulk, Brianna’s mother told Eyewitness News.
Brianna is currently at Texas Children’s Hospital in the Medical Center. Her parents say doctors don’t yet know what happened or why but the parents are convinced it has something to do with the flu shot.
“We know in our hearts this was the flu vaccine that made her ill,” Alexander said.
“She was perfectly healthy. No symptoms, no sickness,” added Faulk.
