Dear Rep. Bill Posey:
I designate my comments for the record. My son's Autism had it's onset following his infant vaccines, which at the time with the exception of the MMR, contained Thimerosal (a mercury containing preservative)
I am respectably writing to you to thank you for your interest in hearing our children's stories and to ask that you continue your efforts to get to the bottom of the autism-vaccine issue.
I want to know why a boy who was born healthy and whole, lost all the milestones he had reached, after his vaccines and I want to know why our government has failed our children and our concerns been ignored for so long.
My son Michael's vaccines were administered in San Bernardino County, California, USA (in the city of Fontana and Ontario). This is a perfect example of the careless behavior in doctors offices. He received three vaccines within 20 days of having bronchitis and taking medication known to suppress the immune system. He received a total of 11 vaccines between the age of 8 months and 12 months and most of them were combination vaccines and at times administered while he was running a fever. At some point during those 4 months his head became very large. By the time I realized vaccines were to blamed for the brain damage, he had received 16 vaccines.
On his first birthday September 1998, he received the MMR vaccine and because of it, what might have been a mild case of autism became autism on steroids. Within days developed severe diarrhea and abdominal pain. He lost all the speech he had up to the point. He went from talking to not making any sense, to a few words and then nothing. His digestive system is a mess to this day and the abdominal pain makes him angry and aggressive. He is now 17 years old and still having terrible problems. He can't sleep, can't digest his food properly, has no muscle tone, can't talk and has the maturity of a toddler. He is suspended in time.
The CDC allowed a generation of children to be poisoned. Vaccine injury is a human tragedy. My hope is that something is done now, so that no more children have to suffer.
