Two teens died after receiving a vaccine for meningitis, fueling the debate over the efficacy of vaccination among the youths.
According to the report, High school senior Kimberly Coffey and college sophomore Emily Stillman suffered body aches and fever a few days after receiving the vaccine.
Unfortunately, both girls died of Meningitis B, which is not covered by standard meningitis vaccine. Worse, the vaccine for Meningitis B is not routinely recommended by health experts because most people are not at risk of this disease.
The mothers of two teenagers claim that when their daughters began to display flu-like symptoms after receiving the vaccine, it was the start of a quick spiral that would eventually lead to their deaths.
Naturalnews.com reports: High school senior Kimberly Coffey came home from school one day complaining of body aches and fever. Her health quickly deteriorated, and she eventually ended up on life support after her organs failed. She died and was buried just three days before her high school graduation in the prom dress that she never got to wear. Her mother said she couldn’t believe her diagnosis at first because she had received the vaccine, and now she is trying to make sure everyone knows that the vaccine does not offer the protection many people think it does.
In a separate incident, 19-year-old Emily Stillman, a college sophomore, complained of body aches and headache. ER doctors initially thought she was suffering from a migraine, but a spinal tap performed after she lost consciousness revealed that she had meningitis. Her mother said she had no idea that the vaccine did not protect against all strains of the illness. Like the mother of Kimberly Coffrey, Emily’s devastated mother is now trying to make sure the same thing doesn’t happen to other people
