On November 28th in the Chinese province of Hunan, a two-year-old boy died just one day after being vaccinated with the MMR vaccine at a health center in the city of Changsha (Kaifu district). We are so sorry for his family’s loss. Our heart goes out, especially to his mother. I cannot imagine.


After losing consciousness the day after he was vaccinated with the MMR (mumps, measles, rubella) vaccine, he was rushed to the hospital, but doctors were not able to revive him. According to published reports, “the boy had also previously been given vaccines for diphtheria, pertussis (whooping cough) and tetanus (DPT), hepatitis B, tuberculosis, polio, and Hansen’s disease.” 1 He had also been diagnosed “with a rare congenital lung malformation called horseshoe lung—a fusion of pulmonary tissue between the right and left lungs”2 but he was given a health eval before his vaccines and was declared to have “showed no abnormalities.”3


Chinese health authorities are investigating the case.

As you may know, in the U.S. when a child dies from a vaccine injury, families have no recourse with the vaccine maker. A law that is apparently the same in China. However, it seems that soon, vaccine makers won’t be able to hide behind their poison; on Nov. 11, 2018, the Chinese government published the “Vaccine Management Law” online for public comment. Should the draft become a law, it would allow people to sue pharmaceutical companies for punitive damages in cases of death or serious illness caused by faulty vaccines.


You can bet we will be watching this very carefully and update you as soon as we have more information. Can you imagine how vaccines and vaccine safety might change if American parents could sue vaccine makers when their children died or were harmed?
