On June 13, 2019 the religious exemption for vaccines was repealed in NY. A DANGEROUS & UNTESTED vaccine catch-up schedule was mandated in order for children to be in compliance to attend school.
PARENTS WHO ATTEMPTED TO COMPLY SHARED THEIR STORIES BELOW -- SCROLL DOWN TO SEE ALL NY VAXREACTS STORIES
If your child has experienced a vaccine reaction due to the NY Catch-Up Schedule please file a VAERS report and email firstname.lastname@example.org to share your story.
My daughter was a vaccine free, 100% healthy 14 year old, until 9/9/19. I started to comply & went against everything I believe in. At approximately 5:20 pm, my daughter received the MMR in one arm & the varicella in the other. I questioned her getting two live doses at once & her pediatrician assured me "she'll be fine". I explained my stance & my fears (I had a severe reaction to the Hep B when I was younger, my niece & 2 cousins had severe reactions to the Dtap & Measles vaccine). I was sobbing the entire time,I yelled out "wait", but just as I said it, she was jabbed. Around 7:00 pm, she had a horrible headache. By Wednesday, 9/11/19, she still had the headache & fatigue. (Motrin didn't help), swollen glands & a sore throat. I took her to City MD. They didn't pay attention to anything I said regarding the vaccines, but the Medical Asst put a mask on as soon as I told her & slammed the door on her way out. Strep neg & their diagnosis was Sinusitis & Pharyngitis, they gave her Flonase. The headaches were/are still constant. We went to our next "immunization appointment" on 9/17/2019, but I made it a sick visit instead. Dr told me "it’s just a virus & we'll do polio today, Hep B Thursday & Dtap Monday morning". I declined! My daughter said, "no way I'm doing that". Dr tries to convince her that "your mom was so upset that day so it probably stressed you out which threw your immune system off & you caught something". My daughter went to wait in the car. Dr proceeds to try make feel awful by saying "I have never seen a parent act like that with vaccines." I, again, explain why. She says,"well, I have to vaccinate her because the DOH is breathing down my neck & I'll get in trouble". I told her I thought that was ridiculous & if anything, they'd come after me. Fast forward to 9/17/2019, my daughter had a low grade fever, legs were achy, along with the constant headache. On 9/19/2019, I took her to the Hospital where Dr actually listened. He did blood work & a spinal tap as he felt she could have had "vaccine induced meningitis or encephalitis". Thankfully, tests came back normal aside for a high monocyte level indicating a virus. In his words, "...you can't argue with a headache 9 days in a row & she gets better after a spinal tap". He thinks removing some spinal fluid relieved some pressure off her brain since her headache lessened after the procedure. He goes on to say "space them out, don't stack them.." ..."she got the shots & then that occupied her immune system & then one of the Long Island viruses snuck in & got her.." We ended up back in the ER at 1:49 am (I called ahead of time & he told me to come back). She was crying as the pain in her back & head were intolerable. They gave her Percocet & placed a lidocaine patch on her back. As of 8:00 am this morning, she's thrown up 4x & still has a headache. She has NEVER been sick like this, never even missed a day of school last year & now she has been late twice, absent once & picked up early already. She's a very active girl & all she wants to do these last 10 days is sleep. It's heartbreaking to see her like this.
9/22/19, my daughter had to be rushed back to the hospital by ambulance due to severe pain in her head and was admitted this morning for further testing.
As guilt ridden as I feel, please, share my story. I wish I had never complied & I don't want other parents to make the same mistake I did. I was told 13 years ago to always go with your mother's instinct. I failed to do that.
My 10 year old son received his first ever dose of MMR and Varicella. After he received the second shot, a minute or two later he said he was going to throw up. As he walked over to the sink at the doctors office he said he was dizzy and blacking out, and then he fainted. Myself and the nurse dragged him over to the bed and he was in and out of consciousness for a couple minutes. The doctor rushed in and checked his vitals which were a frightening 62/47, oxygen was 95% and a BP of 58. He was pale, wet, and his eyes were rolling to the back of his head for a couple minutes. He then received pedialyte and after about 5 minutes his BP started rising again and his pulse slowly was going up. After 30 minutes he sat up and he had a pounding headache for several hours after still.
My 14 year old son had several bad reactions to vaccines when he was younger. He would get hives after almost all vaccine appointments and severe eczema for all of his younger years while we were vaccinating. He also had severe arm pain almost like paralysis of his arm after the pneumococcal vaccine when he was two years old. From birth to 6 we followed the vaccine schedule on time because we didn’t know any better at that point. We stopped after that and started our research.
He did not want to leave school or his soccer team so I gave him meningococcal on 9/16/19. Two days later they forced us to get the TDap on 9/18/19. He woke up the next day unable to move his arm. He is in pain and can’t use it at all. He has continued to have severe shoulder and arm pain from his shoulder to his elbow, headaches, blood when blowing his nose, and severe foot pain.
Update --We went to our local ER. Doctor was very nice and agreed this is definitely from the vaccinations and that he should not get anymore.
Talked to the pediatricians office a few times to tell them my son still had a headache. They said the pediatrician could see him and possibly refer us to a neurologist or we could try the children’s hospital. This morning the headache was the worst it’s been. Throbbing every time he stood up.
We went to the children’s hospital. Waited in the waiting room for over 4 hours. Finally saw the doctor who did an exam, iv, and pain medicine. We also saw an neurologist who did a full exam. I just want him to wake up tomorrow with no headache!!!
My completely healthy 14 year old son who hasn’t been vaccinated since 2010 needed Meningococcal and tDap to remain in school. On 9/17/19 he received the Meningococcal at around 4:30 pm. By 8 pm he was complaining that he was exhausted. He woke up the next day with a headache and what seemed like common cold symptoms. Stuffy. Headache. Tired. Just run down. He spent the next few days feeling like that. On 9/22/19, 5 days after, he started to have involuntary neck movements. He would rapidly blink his eye and his neck would jerk. It started happening every 10-20 mins. The next day it got progressively worse. We headed to the ER and were told that he has a Tic disorder. I was also told by the ER physician as well as the physician at our follow up, that neurological tics can be a side effect from this particular vaccine and can last a few weeks to well over a year. I am devastated!!
My daughter received her first ever vaccines. MMR and Varicella on 9/16/19 and Tdap and Polio on 9/20/19. She began to feel a bit under the weather on 9/22, fatigued, sore throat. On 9/23 she woke up with a few pox pimples on her body. For the next couple days a few more pimples appeared and a rash started forming. On 9/25 the rash was much more inflamed, she developed a 103 fever, headache and 3 small round bruises. I took her to the ER for blood work and left the hospital that night. The next day she woke up with hives all over her body. Itchy, inflamed, so uncomfortable. I took her to a pediatric urgent care right away. Doctor examined her and stated it appears as though her body is trying to fight off some sort of a virus, and with the combination of the vaccines, her body is in complete overdrive and he said likely a vaccine reaction. He said it is not unusual getting a few pox pimples, but the hives and rashes did seem bad.
My 17 year old son has never had a vaccine before. NYS repealed my right to a religious waiver and in order for him to finish his senior year and electrical program with Boces, we were forced to vaccinate.
On Friday 8/23/19 he received TDAP, polio, menactra, varicella, Hep B and MMR.
On Friday, 8/30 he started not feeling well and losing his appetite, he also complained his neck was incredibly stiff. He went to sleep and woke up with a 103 degree fever, was nauseated and had blurred vision. This lasted until that Sunday when his fever finally broke.
I’ll never forgive myself.
I saw this email while following Rita Palma and wanted to share.
My daughter is a healthy 4 year old girl and rarely ever gets sick. I did not vaccinate her when she was born and after the repeal of the religious exemption she got kicked out of Pre-k. After great discussion with my husband we decided to give her a shot a month until kindergarten. She had the MMR in August and last week September 12th, 2019 she received the DTaP. Within 40 minutes of receiving the DTaP she was throwing up and had 101.9 fever for 8 hours after.
My daughter a super healthy 11 year old who has never received a vaccine, was forced to by the new NYS law.
On 8/5/19- Polio and on 9/12 she received first dose of MMR & Varicella. She was not 100% either after her shots on 9/12- sick to her stomach and migraine like headache again. In order to catch up before the 14 day time period she was given (3) at one time, T-dap, Meningitis and HepB on 9/17/19.
By the end of the day she was complaining of a migraine headache. By morning, she was so sick to her stomach, lethargic and running a fever. This continued for another day, with her fever getting higher, new symptoms of neck stiffness and dizziness. We brought her to our chiropractor who worked on her. While we were able to get her fever to break, she then ended up with hives all over body. While her other symptoms seem to be improving her energy is not the same and she is tired all the time.
My 6 year old son had a reaction to the mmr-v vaccine.
He got the vaccine on September 4, 2019 around 10 am.
On wed. Sept. 11 around 6 am he had diarrhea
Thurs. Sept. 12 came home from school with a high fever.
Thursday night 9/12/19 and Friday night 9/13/19 he had high fever and was moaning, yelling and crying in his sleep.
I think you were the answer I have been praying for.
Since coming across the fb post and learning about you and what you are doing, I decided hey I’m not going to continue with this dangerous catch up schedule and I am going to homeschool my son.
I hated living a lie. Conforming didn’t align with my core values and beliefs and I went against my better judgement just to keep him in a school that has proven could care less about him.
This all hit me this morning after sending you my email so thank you and God bless you.
I am writing this in hopes my voice, every voice, can change what's happening to our children. I was persuaded to allow my 18 month old child to be vaccinated with MMR on April 29, 2019. This was due to the impending "threat" of the disease spreading in an area with people he had contact with.
Monday April 29th, 2019 we saw our son's pediatrician and he was given the shot. He was 18 months old at the time. That evening he was cranky as expected. The following few days he not only spiked a fever that regularly reached 104, but also developed a rash all over his body. He was cranky, didn't sleep or eat well and covered in a rash for almost 2 weeks. Luckily, those symptoms did go away. But I'm not sure that's the end of our story.
My 12 year old daughter had TDaP on Monday 9/16/19. Wednesday lunch time I get a call from her at school saying mommy please come get me quick. She had a horrific headache-this headache was different and not like any other she had ever had. She said it came on bam all of a sudden only on the left side ..her left eye felt blurry momentarily and she was dizzy. She said it felt like her head was bashed into the wall. This is ludicrous what this state is doing.
My 6 year old had varicella Monday ...was perfectly healthy going in....she was unvaxxed. We go in and get the shot a few hours later she is all congested/coughing and friday night had 101.5 fever. On Saturday she comes down with a 102.5 fever again ...this is the worst!
On 9/18 per NYS requirements we were forced to give our healthy 5 year old MMR, Varicella, Hep B, DtaP/Polio (Quadracel). Almost immediately he complained of headache, stomach ache, and breathing rapidly. Breathing irregularity subsided in 20 minutes. Headache continued for 3 days, then on and off for the last 2 weeks. Stomach ache still continues today, over two weeks later. He cried when I had to pick him up sick 9/19 and he missed 9/20. He missed his first assembly at the very school he's longed to attend since he was 2. The very school that is forced to enforce the ridiculous mandates.
He has had no less than 30 visits to the school nurse for stomach pains, all documented. Doctor thinks it's his body detoxing and to give it time.
On 10/2 I pick him up from school early, he sobs missing more school. We visit the pediatrician who suggests bloodwork and x-ray to rule out constipation despite the fact he's been stooling regularly and had just gone at the office.
At school 10/3 complains consistently of stomach staying it's worse. Upon arrival home from school he is sobbing, screaming.
We have no other information or suggestions other than to continue trying mag citrate and to wait for the GI referral appointment on 10/13.
Some background: Pediatrician actually noted at July physical how healthy our 5 year old and his brother were, only seeing them yearly.
He once had only 6 safe foods, on rotation, every day for months to heal his gut. He went from having numerous anaphylactic foods to only 2. We eat a clean, healthy diet. He is happy. He is healthy. He is smart. He is thriving and loves Kindergarten.
4 yrs of health and gut healing, gone, in one fell swoop thanks to the atrocities of NYS. And all I have is a sobbing, sick, unhappy 5 yr old and a worried 8 yr old who just wants his brother to be happy and healthy again.
My son is 5 years old and on Sept 16 2019 he received MMRV. On the 9th evening subsequent to the shot he became lethargic, no appetite, fever of 101.3, no energy, blood shot glossy eyes. This continued for 2 1/2 days. His fever spiked to 102.3. I also noticed on the 10th day his pupils were vastly different sizes. They still are but not as bad. I’ve confirmed with literally 100 of before close up photos of his face and his eyes, his eyes were NEVER like this before the shot. All of this was reported to his pediatrician. I did take him to an ophthalmologist today who said he can see the pupils being different sizes but all else seems fine and to just “keep an eye on it and call if anything changes.” He did make the correlation that the arm he received the vaccine in is the same size as the affected eye but did not say whether the vastly different size pupils were or were not related to the vaccine.
Some background: He had received all vaccines through 10 months old and then we stopped but now are being forced to comply. During those 10 months he was constantly sick with a horrible cough and diarrhea all of the time.
My 6 year old son received the polio vaccine on August 30th 2019 and the MMR and varicella on Sept. 10th 2019. He came down with a fever that lasted for five days that wouldn’t go down without 24 hr ibuprofen/Tylenol. He was lethargic, had no appetite and a horrible headache. He missed 2 days of school (he got perfect attendance last year)! Then the fever finally broke, and on day 6 he had a horrible bloody nose at school that would not stop (the nurse who forced the vaccines called me not knowing what to do with him). The next day he was tired and had a headache still. I was hopeful it was almost all over. Then the next day he woke up in the middle of the night with excruciating leg pain. It was the worst pain I ever saw my son in. He was screaming so loud he woke up his dad and sisters. An hour went by and I finally got him to take Tylenol. He NEVER before had that kind of pain. So the next 3 weeks after that were hard, very hard. My son was extremely behavioral, anxious and angry. He was tired and constantly complained of a headache. He would cry for no reason, saying “mommy, I just don’t know if I’m hungry or what I am, I just don’t know”, with tears in his large blue eyes. He had meltdown after meltdown.
The whole time we were going through this, I thought “the government does NOT care if my child is sick”. So I no longer care about their rules. He will never get those vaccines again.
I want everyone to know, that this is a battle and we need to fight back.

Long Island, NY -- 2018 -- TWINS HOSPITALIZED AFTER FLU SHOT
My twins received the flu vaccine on December 23, 2018. On December 24, they didn’t feel well. We took them to an urgent care and had them tested for the flu. They both tests positive for Flu A. We canceled our Christmas festivities and tried to get them back to being healthy. On December 26, my son didn’t wake up. While he was still breathing and had a heartbeat, he was completely unresponsive. He was taken to the hospital and upon being diagnosed with flu A, pneumonia, and viral sepsis, he was admitted to the PICU. He spent a week in the hospital, but he was still too weak to walk on his own when he was released. He had lost 7% of his body weight and his muscles had atrophied due to the sepsis, so he lost his balance, strength, and coordination. After a few days home, he was able to walk 2-3 steps before he would fall down. We thought he had gained enough strength, balance, and coordination back after two weeks, but he fell while walking and landed on his chin. He had to get 5 stitched in his chin. He had the stitches removed 5 days later and the very next day, he fell again and had to get stitches put back in. Almost 9 months later, he still receives physical therapy to help him regain his balance, strength and coordination. He is still 2 lbs less than he was when he got sick. I recently submitted his reaction to VAERS and it was verified by his pediatrician and the hospital pediatrician. It was this adverse reaction that finally woke me up.
Long Island, NY -- 2018 -- 4 YR OLD RASH & FEVER AFTER DTAP
My son had the DTap one month after his 4th birthday. Three days later, he had this FULL BODY rash and a 104.3 fever that lasted 4 days.
Rome, NY -- 2017 -- 4 YR OLD DIES AFTER MULTIPLE VACCINATIONS
My son had a high fever after every single vaccination. When it was 104 degrees F at 6 months, I took him to the emergency room. They told me he had a virus and he would get better. Up until 2 he was alert but he was still very quiet. When he reached 2 we had an evaluation done and it was determined he would need occupational therapy and speech therapy. Even with the therapy, it seemed like his delays and his behavior were regressing. After vaccines (along with the fever) he would hit his head against the floor and doors of the house. Because he was not vocal, he could not express what he felt. As a side note, he was born with craniosynostosis (fused metopic skull) and underwent cranial release at 3 months old. I did receive the flu shot while pregnant.
On January 16, 2017, he was given 9 vaccines at his 4-year "wellness visit" with his pediatrician: MMR, Dtap, Polio, Varicella, and the flu. A week later he exhibited a high 104-degree fever, clammy, skin, and behavioral abnormalities. He was sent home several times after his visit over the next month repeatedly for vomiting at school. He also had a physical evaluation that previously always showed normal and he was now listed as severely physically delayed.
On February 25, 2017, Johnathan laid down for a nap, seized in his sleep, and never woke up again. The doctor ruled it as SUDC or SIDS for an older child. I believe he was slowly poisoned by vaccines until his body could no longer fight it off. He had no proper history of seizure and it was not included in the ME's report. When I went to wake him up he was cold, stiff, and his jaw was shut. We tried to open it to perform CPR.
After the ME gave us her opinion, she asked if she could share my son's information with a colleague of hers who was writing a paper about SUDS and vaccines.
He suffered many side effects, but also suffered the ultimate sacrifice that should have never taken place.
My only child, Johnathan Michael Wurz, (Male). He was 4 when he passed away.

Niagra Falls, NY -- 2017 -- 5 YR OLD SUFFERS ANAPHYLAXIS & AUTOIMMUNE CONDITION AFTER MMRV & DTAP-IPV
On August 17, 2017 our child had an anaphylaxis reaction to his kindergarten vaccines. He was given MMRV (Proquad) and Dtap-IPV (Quadracel) all in just 2 needles. He was already a medically complex child to begin with, but was diagnosed with a new autoimmune condition (eosinophilic esophagitis in July 2018, after a few EGD scopes since the vaccine reaction).
The photo is from the ER already a couple hours after the event, after the Epipen, O2, benadryl, and steroids (given in ambulance).
Long Island, NY -- 2016 -- 15 MONTH OLD REGRESSES FOLLOWING MMR VACCINE
My son was a happy, smiling, snuggly boy who loved hugs and kisses and babbling. The left is him at 12 months old. He had the MMR vaccine at 15 months old. The right is him at 16 months old when he stopped babbling, stopped making eye contact, cried, threw tantrums, pushed against my hugs, and acted as though my kisses hurt. He started to walk on his toes and screamed if I put socks on him. We are lucky that with an involved detox protocol and years of therapies, he has made tremendous progress. But I remember when the fog rolled in and tried to take my boy.
Long Island, NY -- 2015 -- 9 MONTH OLD REACTS TO FLU SHOT.
My daughter had an allergic reaction to the flu vaccine at 9 months old. We later found out she had an egg allergy.
Long Island, NY -- 2015 -- 15 MONTH OLD REACTS TO MMR VACCINE.
My son was 15-months old when he received his required MMR vaccine. Only a few days later he became extremely irritable so I took him to the doctor who ruled out strep and an ear infection. I was thinking it could be related to the vaccine but wasn’t sure so I took him home. A few days later he still wasn’t himself so back to the pediatrician we went and she couldn’t find anything wrong but since he was so irritable and looked very uncomfortable she told me to take him to the ER immediately.
At the hospital they did blood work to test his CBC levels and Bicarbonate levels which were at a 13 reflecting extreme levels of dehydration. They did a spinal tap to rule out meningitis, CT scan, abdominal X-ray, chest X-ray, sonogram of the stomach, EKG. My tiny 15-month old not yet verbal baby was put through so much. It was so heartbreaking to watch.
Now we know that his CBC levels were so dangerously low because he clearly got a viral infection as a reaction to the MMR vaccine. He was put on IV fluids and was given antibiotics to fight the infection. All night long every 2 hours they woke him to check his vitals. Then every 4 hours they woke him to check to see if his diaper was wet. It felt like a nurse or doctor was constantly in the room. He had an IV in his arm and kept trying to pull it out all night. We finally got to leave the hospital after 2 days once his levels increased and showed that he was no longer dehydrated and his white blood cell count started improving. I feel lucky that nothing more permanent happened to him after receiving the first dose and I don’t want to take any chances. In addition the HPV vaccine is very scary and I don’t plan to vaccinate my kid’s with that either. This is a scary world we live in with all of these vaccine mandates.
Long Island, NY -- 2014 -- MULTIPLE SURGERIES & HEARING LOSS IN TWINS AFTER HIB VACCINE
My twins received their first Hib vaccine at 3 months old. Within 2 weeks, they started to have what would be chronic re-occurring otitis media (ear infections). They had to go under anesthesia at 17 months to have tubes put into their ears to drain the fluid that kept getting infected. The tubes fell out on their own by 3.5 years and at 4 years old, they had to go under anesthesia again for a second set up tubes. The recurrent ear infections caused moderate hearing loss in both ears for both children. This affected their ability to hear sounds and develop speech. Both children have received speech therapy since the age of 2.
Long Island, NY -- 2014 -- 4 YR OLD HAS INSTANTANEOUS ALLERGIC REACTION TO VARICELLA VACCINE
When my son was an infant I remember looking into the CDC vaccine schedule and seeing how it’s tripled since my generation in the 80s until now. I couldn’t understand why children today needed more boosters and vaccines than I did. I questioned it but he doctors assured me in safety. It wasn’t until my oldest son turned 4 and went to his well visit to receive his MMR and Varicella vaccine. (I questioned the nurse; why does he need varicella, I had chicken pox we all did! “He needs it to go to school” was her reply. Then something happened. After his second needle he started to wail and scream. See my son never cried from his shots, I was a proud mommy. Heck I even thought vaccine injury only happens to the weak. My son had an instantaneous adverse reaction to his chicken pox vaccine. His arm swelled up, he told me his arm was burning and asked when the pain would go away. The nurses dismissed it, and gave him tylenol. He continued to scream for 6 hours until he cried himself to sleep. I know now that tylenol will actually reduce the bodies natural glutathione levels and increase a chance for a reaction because it's the bodies antioxidant and helps mitigate free radical damage such as toxins in a vaccine. See but I'm the lucky mom, because some mothers lose their children to death, life long seizures, & neurological disorders, FOREVER. That was my enough moment; when I began to do thousands of hours of research into the topic. I learned that there are ingredients in vaccines I wouldn't put on my skin, let alone in my child’s body. I learned about questionable ingredients like heavy metals and aborted fetal cells. We all want what best for our children. We all have the same goal to keep our children safe. Unless you have witnessed vaccine injury firsthand you won’t understand. His reaction led me to my religious convictions and I would never potentially harm my children again. It is my faith and only God I need to answer to. My children belong to me, and are not property of the state. I will never let this happen again.
Long Island, NY -- 2014 -- 2 MONTH YEAR OLD EXPERIENCES SEIZURES & DEVELOPMENTAL DELAYS FOLLOWING ROTAVIRUS & PNEUMOCOCCAL VACCINATIONS
I brought my 2 month old daughter in for her well-visit in the summer of 2014. She received the Rotavirus and Pneumococcal vaccinations. Shortly upon arriving home, she had a seizure. Crippled from worry even after I got off the phone call with the pediatrician, I knew something changed. Our pediatrician saw us the next day. My concerns were dismissed causally. Special needs therapy services in the form of speech and physical were approved for my child as she experienced developmental delays in these areas. Something happened that day. My child was injured from one or more of these vaccinations and had clearly suffered a very real reaction, with consequence. We lived a journey of recovery years following. Please know, what others do with what I am sharing, is not my concern, but please know this happened to us.
Long Island, NY -- 1998 -- 9 YR OLD HAS SEIZURES OVER A YEAR FOLLOWING VARICELLA VACCINE
My 9 year old daughter suffered seizures for over a year following her varicella vaccination (chicken pox vaccine). These seizures began as quivers in her mouth and then developed into full episodes which would manifest during the night. There is no history of epilepsy in our family.
