Thursday, October 29, 2015 10:49PM. Brianna Browning, age 9, has become the latest victim of the flu shot. Her parents allege that right after receiving a flu shot, their little girl went from healthy to paralyzed with impaired vision. They are certain the flu shot caused this condition.
According to ABC13.
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.
The family says that their daughter had absolutely no issues before receiving the shot. Brianna’s family has set up a GoFundMe page to help cover the cost of her recovery (here). You can watch the full story below.
Flu shots are not only not necessary, but they aren’t seemingly safe, either. Be careful what you put into your body. We really hope she recovers as fully as possible, this is a very sad case. Health officials have already been quick to dismiss it as a “rare occurrence.” Her stepdad and mother had this to say.
“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.
