A Muslim girl named Shazel, 13 years old, was normal and active until receiving an HPV vaccine. Her sister said: “She had the injection on the Wednesday. On Friday she was complaining of a sore arm, on Saturday a severe headache, and by the evening she was throwing up. Sunday she was very pale, and my aunt took her to hospital. She was in and out of consciousness. They were told everything is ‘normal’. My aunt took her back to the doctor and the doctor commented Shazel ‘came across as a lazy child’. I was at home when Shazel returned. She was in a really bad state and my aunt put her to bed. An hour later she went blue and she had no pulse.” The family strongly believe that there is a link between her death and the vaccination. Shazel, 13 year old girl, HPV vaccine, United Kingdom.
My name is Dr. Ahmed Khaled Shahin, a paediatrician working for the Palestinian Ministry of health. I was blessed with Othman, a lovable new born who remained healthy and well for the first six months of his life. Othman was given a DPT vaccine, and within two to three days he developed brain damage. Now he is thirteen years old and suffers: quadriplegia, severe floppiness, convulsions, recurrent abnormal movements and sudden verbal tics uncontrollable by all antiepileptic drugs, defect in the thermal regulation centre causing recurrent increase in epileptic seizures especially in hot summer (central hyperthermia, requiring a special air conditioned room), inability to masticate, dysphagia, double incontinence, totally dependent, with 100% incapability. Othman cannot communicate verbally and tell if he is hungry or thirsty, thus needs 24 hour social care. More than 20 treatment trips seeking medical assistance, and daily visits to Gaza hospitals, the outcome was unanimous. The cause of the condition was the vaccine. I spent all that I had, selling even the property of my wife, and borrowed with lots of debts. Is there not a single kind heart in this world that will help me with the need of my sick child? About the 2014 war, and the Israeli warplanes shelling of my house while we were asleep on the day of Lesser Bairam, which resulted in the loss and martyrdom of my beloved only son, Ali, and the injury of my little daughters and wife.
