Montpelier, VT 7-year old’s Death after the Flu Shot Raises More Questions about Parental Rights
Nicole and Justin Matten of Barton, VT lost their 7 yr old daughter last December just 92 hrs after she received a flu shot. They recently joined the Vermont Coalition for Vaccine Choice to oppose proposed bills that threaten parental rights.
Despite giving parents this choice, vaccination rates in Vermont, when measured against the state's required immunization schedule for school are well above the CDC's goal of 90%. The exception is chicken pox (varicella) vaccine), which carries with it increased rates of seizures. Read the full report from the Vermont Dept. of Health here: http://www2.cdc.gov/
Nicole and Justin Matten wish they had been told more about the risks. They say that their decision to vaccinate may have been different. See them and hear what they have to say. Visit:
It is important for all Vermonters to know that the S199 and H527 bill set a dangerous percent of state control over parental rights that we should all be concerned about.
