Kids Collapse at School Directly After Vaccinations

On January 26th, paramedics were called out to treat up to 15 kids at Northampton School for Boys, between the ages of 10 and 15, after collapsing after being given a round of vaccinations.

One parent, who didn’t want to be named, said that there were several vaccinations being administered that day. Once the children passed out, the rest of the vaccinations were suspended. Of interesting note, the children were previously vaccinated.

The letter that went home:

“Dear Parent/Carer, please be advised the immunisation session your child attended today was suspended due to unforseen circumstances. Some of the vaccinated children have become unwell shortly after vaccination.

Your child has received their scheduled vaccination and, while we are not expecting him to become unwell, we are advising if he experiences sensations of dizziness, nausea, skin rash, or breathing difficulties to seek the appropriate medical advice. At present we are unclear regarding the reasons for the reaction to the vaccination and are completing an investigation with our immunisation colleagues.

We can provide reassurance the small number of children involved are currently well. However. as a precaution we have withdrawn the batch of vaccine that they had received.

If you wish to discuss this further please contact the School Nursing team.”

Thankfully the letter did tell parents what to do in case their children felt ill later on. However, the lasting effects of whatever these poor children were jabbed with may take more time than just a day to be known.

An investigation by the nursing team at the school has been launched and Headteacher Richard Bernard reassured the press that while a small number of students had a reaction yesterday, today all students are physically well.

Whew. That was close. And let’s hope that’s all it was. Time will tell. Our hearts go out to the parents who must surely have been terrified and may still be reeling.
