Brianna Browning, 9, was a healthy young girl at the beginning of October of this year. However, following a flu shot that was administered to her on October 15, she began to experience debilitating effects within just a few hours. Now her Southeast Texas Family is claiming the shot has left her injured and paralyzed from the waist down.
“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 KTRK.
Her stepfather, Johnny Alexander said, “We know in our hearts this was the flu vaccine that made her ill.”
“She was perfectly healthy. No symptoms, no sickness,” added Faulk.
“It’s horrible. It kills us,” said Alexander.
The Center for Disease Control recommends that those over the age of 6 months get the flu shot each year.
Dr. Umair Shah, the Executive Director of Harris County Public Health and Environmental Services claims that flu shots are extremely safe and claims that there are a lot of myths about flu shots.
“There are some cases, very rare, that a flu shot has a more severe reaction and those reactions are minor in terms of the number of people who are going to get those,” he said.
While Shah does say there can be reactions, the reality is that the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) receives up to 20,000 reports regarding adverse effects and damage related to vaccines. Additionally, the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program has awarded over $3 billion to families of those injured and more than $120 million to cover attorney’s fees and legal costs since being formed in 1989.
In October, the Supreme Court failed to hear a case involving mandatory vaccines in New York and that has put the Fourth Amendment in even greater jeopardy from tyrants.
Brianna’s family is staying positive. Faulk said of Brianna, “She’s a fighter and I stay positive. I stay positive for her.”
The family has set up a GoFundMe Page for Brianna in order to help acquire a lift for her wheelchair, medication and in-home care. Please click here if you wish to help her.
