MAN UNABLE TO SPEAK, WALK, SEE OR BREATHE DAYS AFTER GETTING FLU SHOT
Infowars ^ | December 5, 2018 | Adan Salazar

A Las Vegas man lost his vision, became partially paralyzed and has been unable to breathe without assistance since getting a flu shot last month.

Shane Morgan and his wife Monique decided to get flu shots on November 2, believing it would help protect them and young family members ahead of the busy holiday season.

But what they thought was a pro-active measure turned to horror when Shane began losing feeling in his arms and legs.

“About 36-hours after he got the flu shot he started to get sick,” Monique explained to KSNV.

“I never dreamed that any of this could ever happen,” Shane told local media.

A Las Vegas Man lost his ability to walk, speak & see days after getting the #FluShot Doctors diagnosed him w/ Guillain-Barre syndrome a.k.a GBS.

Doctors at Centennial Hills Hospital diagnosed Shane with Guillain-Barré Syndrome, a known vaccine adverse reaction characterized by the CDC as an “autoimmune disorder in which a person’s own immune system damages the nerves, causing muscle weakness and sometimes paralysis.”

Monique blames the flu shot for triggering the adverse reaction, which has left Shane in need of a ventilator and a feeding tube.

“It’s the last time anyone in my family will ever get one,” she said, adding Sha

The sensationalism is this story is bad. GBS is a bad actor but can happen with any viral challenge or disease and generally resolves completely. The press forgot that little tidbit. More people will die unvaccinated from flu than will die from GBS. Chances are better than 98% this guy will have compete resplutoon of symptoms with the residual most often being mild numbness in the hands or feet. This article is great disservice.

Too bad they found out the hard way. Someone else just died recently from the flu shot. It was someone notable, but I can’t remember the name. But it was someone who was bragging about how great he was for getting the shot. And then it killed him.

Never had one in my life. Even back at grade school, my parents wrote the letter to the school admin to NOT give me the flu shot, with an “or else” clause. 4 of my classmates got sick within days, then those parents went ballistic at the school.

Info from CDC. A 1-2 in a million risk of this happening.

GBS and the link to flu vaccine

In 1976, there was a small increased risk of GBS after swine flu vaccination, which was a special flu vaccine for a potential pandemic strain of flu virus. The Institute of Medicine (IOM) conducted a scientific review of this issue in 2003 and found that people who received the 1976 swine flu vaccine had an increased risk for developing GBS. The increased risk was approximately one additional case of GBS for every 100,000 people who got the swine flu vaccine. Scientists have several theories about the cause, but the exact reason for this link remains unknown.

There have been several studies of the risk of GBS after flu vaccine and CDC monitors for GBS during each flu season. The data on an association between seasonal influenza vaccine and GBS have been variable from season-to-season. When there has been an increased risk, it has consistently been in the range of 1-2 additional GBS cases per million flu vaccine doses administered.

Studies suggest that it is more likely that a person will get GBS after getting the flu than after vaccination. It is important to keep in mind that severe illness and death are associated with flu, and getting vaccinated is the best way to prevent flu infection and its complications.

Guillain-Barre (gee-YAH-buh-RAY) syndrome is a rare disorder in which your body's immune system attacks your nerves. Weakness and tingling in your extremities are usually the first symptoms.

These sensations can quickly spread, eventually paralyzing your whole body. In its most severe form Guillain-Barre syndrome is a medical emergency. Most people with the condition must be hospitalized to receive treatment.

The exact cause of Guillain-Barre syndrome is unknown. But it is often preceded by an infectious illness such as a respiratory infection or the stomach flu

How about this guy. Do you think this is going to resolve:

Senator promotes flu shot, receives it, gets sick and dies age 47, mainstream media playing dumb

http://www.investmentwatchblog.com/senator-promotes-flu-shot-receives-it-gets-sick-and-dies-age-47-mainstream-media-playing-dumb/

The Flu shot hardly ever even works. More people get sick from it than those who don’t get the flu because of it. It is BS. It is a way for drug companies to make a ton of money.

I’m 60. Never had one, never will, never get sick except for an occasional light cold or flu.

I worked construction my whole life so never washed hands, ate lunch with dirty hands every day.

I had a sister-in-law who had GBS years ago. She was a hospital floor nurse at the time, so assumed it was contracted from work. She did eventually have a complete recovery; until suicide took her in 2014.

I know a retired orthopedic surgeon — he must be in his nineties by now. The last time I saw him, he was getting over bout of flu. I asked him if he’d had a flu shot. No, he said, he never does. For the record, he’s doing fine now and leads an active life.

Are they still using Thermasol? Nothing like getting an annual dose of mercury.
