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
I was attending Massage Therapy College & harassed to have ALL vaccines done "for my & my client's protection" I'm being taught holistic therapies & forced to get vaccines!!??? I then went to Ireland & immediately got chickenpox with Zero Contact from the person that had them. They lived in another house, etc. I was diagnosed with chickenpox. Got over them. A month later got them AGAIN... Got rid of them & 3 months later contracted SHINGLES!!! Or as its lovingly referred to: Adult Chickenpox. That was horrible! Painful, affected my respiratory, all over my chest, back & wear my bra fits. Now, let me ask this...if a vaccine is supposed to protect you, why did it do nothing? It actually made me more susceptible. I was naive and stupid to have it done. NEVER AGAIN. I would like to add...I asked the nurse that was doing the vaccine if it contained Mercury & she "wasn't sure" --seriously?

I was fully vaccinated when I was a child & so were my sisters... we all got the measles and the chicken pox. Also, myself, my niece, and my son all got type 1 diabetes within 2 weeks of getting the MMR vaccine. I regret vaccinating my son.

My 20 year old daughter, who recently obtained a titer for the Hepatitis B vaccine, was told she was negative. This means there is no immunity to the virus present in her system. She obviously received the series of three injections as a newborn, which has now proved completely unnecessary. The titer test was required for acceptance into a nursing program, which is also forcing her to receive the influenza vaccine as well.

Failure
I wouldn't call it a failure, but a horrifying adverse reaction. (Not sure which category I should enter this into). It was the longest night of my life. 8 hours after taking the vaccine, the following took place, and over a period of about 5-6 hours total. Chills, headache, nose dripping. Chills became shaking chills, copious nasal mucus, and by the time I made it to bed to try to warm up, I was coughing up tremendous amounts of clear mucus. Handfuls. Headache & stiff neck began, then pressure behind eyes. Shaking wouldn't stop. Delirium. Knew I needed to get to the phone or at least take my temp but couldn't think how to accomplish either. Just freezing and shaking alone in my bed, explosive headache, choking catarrh. Must have dozed off; awoke with worse headache, very stiff/sore neck, with my head thrown back, teeth clenched, fists at my chest, my body stiff and jerking. Making a sound like "Nghhh, nghh, nghh…". No idea how long that went on. Eventually subsided, got up to go to bathroom and realized I'd wet the bed. Finally got to sleep. Next morning back and neck very sore & I felt so hung over. The really weird thing is that I discovered tissues all over my bedroom floor, scattered like flower petals. I have no recollection of walking about in the night. I live alone. Went to walk-in the next day, PA said I probably had a seizure and probably shouldnt drive home. Nasal swab negative. Drove myself home. I'm 65 and have MTHFR c677t gene mutation. Happy to be alive and will never take another vaccine. Ever. Have had influenza a number of times and survived it just fine.
