Welcome! We recently created the Vaccine Failure Wall as a way for the community to share their experiences with vaccine failure. Vaccines can sometimes fail to provide protection against the infectious disease they were designed to prevent. Do you have a vaccine failure story to share? Click here to complete our Vaccine Failure Reporting Form.  Your personal identity will be kept confidential.

Below you will also find stories shared by others that are listed in chronological order, with the most recent at the top. You're among the first to visit our Vaccine Failure Wall, so it may take a couple weeks for the initial stories to post. We appreciate your patience as this new feature of our website begins to  document the public's stories!

If you had a reaction to a vaccine or have been the subject of vaccine harassment, please click here to access those reporting options.

Failure
As a natural practitioner, several clients of mine had pertussis. As these were large families, some had been immunized and others not. They all got it, didn't matter if they were immunized or not.

My daughter, who was vaccinated twice at the recommended scheduled times, got sick with chicken pox at age 11. She was severely ill for 4 weeks with lesions all over her body and especially her face. She has scars that remained into adulthood, which is disheartening. At first we didn't know what it was, but the pediatrician took a swab and confirmed it on one of the first pustules on her chest. After that it went into full blown chicken pox with lesions all over her body. I no longer trust in this type of medical intervention on healthy individuals. I only had one vaccine as a child, for small pox, but did get chicken pox and a light case of German measles when I was a child. Our parents would put us kids together in order to actually get the disease and build natural immunity to it during childhood. This overvaccinating is crazy!

Failure
I contracted pertussis, whooping cough. Very sick with choking cough for 8 weeks so far. Possibly provoked an epidural hematoma which is now contributing to extending my ill health for several more weeks. Primary care physician did not have pertussis on list of possible illness and did not suggest testing or treating.

I got a very bad case of chicken pox even though I had been vaccinated. My sister who had also been vaccinated got a very bad case of it as well at the same time I did. Dr. Ronald Goodsite was my pediatrician at time. He agreed that it was a bad case when he seen my sister and I.

None of your fields on this form correspond with our case, My daughter born in 2001 had all her scheduled vaccinations. She would get a lot of infections. When in preschool her finger got so infected it turned almost black. I was afraid it might needed to be amputated. After 4 rounds of antibiotics, her finger was back to normal. She was diagnosed with MRSA a couple of times. When she was maybe 7 or 8 she had strep throat, three times in less than a year. I told the doctor my concern with all the infections, and he had some blood work done on her. When the results came back he was completely perplex because she had no trace of being vaccinated. She had no antibodies that matched her vaccination records. He had been her pediatrician since birth. She was sent to a specialist that wanted to test her immune system by vaccinating her with Pneumovax and then redoing the blood work to see if her body worked with the vaccine to build the antibodies. For this vaccine we had to go to the Health Department that was concerned my child was getting this vaccine, but it was what the doctor wanted. At the end, the vaccine did work this time. But, how affective can vaccines be if they have no impact on a person at all like my daughter? This information may be in her records. I would have to check.
