Health Impact News
Statistics released in March, 2014 by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services revealed that the flu vaccine remains the top vaccine causing injuries which are being compensated through vaccine court, and that Guillain-Barré Syndrome, a crippling disease, remains the top injury being awarded compensation due to the seasonal flu vaccine.
The report shows that from 11/16/2013 through 2/15/2014, there were 128 total cases filed in vaccine court and 52 cases were compensated. 40 judgements adopted settlements and they are listed by vaccine and injury:
Of the 40 settlements, representing less than one-third of cases filed, 27 were for injuries due to the flu vaccine, with the vast majority of those for Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS).
These statistics are never reported in the pro-Pharma mainstream media. So we have started publishing these reports here at Health Impact News. To see the report from the period before this one read: Flu Vaccine is the most Dangerous Vaccine in the U. S. based on Settled Cases for Injuries, and for the period before that read: Flu Shot Causes Polio-like Guillain-Barré Syndrome: Are Rates Higher Than the Government Admits? The debilitating effects of GBS are very similar to polio, including paralysis.
Most people do not realize that flu vaccine inserts clearly list Guillain-Barré Syndrome as a known side effect. Unfortunately, the number thrown around by the medical community and mainstream media as to the rates of people becoming injured due to GBS is “one out of 1 million”, a number without any valid data or research.
In a recent report published in the Nebraska Journal Star, Dr. Ana Delgado, a neurologist, stated that the numbers of GBS are increasing and that the National Institute of Health is thinking of revising the number of people suffering from GBS annually:
Guillain-Barre Syndrome occurs when the body’s immune system attacks the peripheral nervous system — literally shorting out the nerves that signal our legs to move, our eyes to close and our lungs to breathe.
“It’s supposed to be a rare disorder,” said Dr. Ana Delgado. But given the number of cases the neurologist has seen since joining Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital in August, she is convinced something is triggering an increase in the number of cases and the severity of this devastating and sometimes fatal syndrome.
The National Institutes of Health estimates one of every 100,000 people will contract GBS. But Scott Culbine, who is still recovering from his attack this past August, says there is talk of revising that number to one in every 50,000 people — a statistic far more in line with GBS patient numbers at Madonna.
Currently there are five GBS in-patients at Madonna, including Scipio, and one outpatient. Once upon a time, it was rare for Madonna to have even one GBS patient; nowadays it is rare not to have one or more, said Dan Kasparek, speech/language pathologist and Neurological Conditions Program leader.

It is interesting how the CDC will throw around the term “epidemic” to justify mass vaccination at a college campus where 7 students come down with meningitis during a 9-month period, prompting them to administer an unapproved meningitis vaccine. But that same logic is not used for adverse reactions to vaccines, where hundreds, if not thousands of people are being injured and crippled. As you can see from the HHS report above, it is very difficult to get the government to pay for vaccine injuries, and often takes years of costly litigation in court. This is obviously just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to injuries due to the flu vaccine.
It has been documented how the CDC inflates the numbers of flu deaths each year in order to sell more flu vaccines. We have also reported how there is strong evidence that the flu vaccine is not only ineffective, but could be causing people to have more severe cases of the flu (see: Is Flu Vaccine Causing Increase in H1N1 Outbreaks? 5 Year Old Boy Dies from H1N1 Virus, Even Though He Was Vaccinated Month Before).
To understand how vaccine injuries and deaths are dealt with in a special “vaccine court” that was set up by Congress, after granting legal immunity to pharmaceutical companies in 1986 for any damages caused by vaccines (and which was then upheld by the Supreme Court in 2011), watch the excellent videos below by Emmy Award winning journalist Ben Swann, as well as the video by The Canary Party, narrated by actor Rob Schneider.
Think twice and do your own research before getting a flu vaccine, or you too might become an ignored statistic with a ruined life.

My dad received his one and only flu vaccine at the age of 62 and two weeks later he was paralyzed from the waist down and was diagnosed with GBS. Very, very, very scary!!!! He was in the hospital for 4 months and had OT and PT to learn how to walk again and just simple things that we take for granted. This stuff is no joke. – Shalia
Lost my Aunt last year as a result of the flu shot. She developed GBS in January and died mother’s day. – Wanda
I got Guillain Barre from the flu shot while I was pregnant. Doctors said I’d never walk again. I proved them wrong. – Nafie
