(NaturalNews) At just 17 months of age, Otto Coleman's life changed drastically and suddenly. After receiving a shocking number of vaccines – 37 to be exact – he ended up being paralyzed with transverse myelitis, and will spend the rest of his life in a wheelchair.
His father, Joshua Coleman, said that he took a close look at his son's vaccination records and was startled by what he found. "At seventeen months old, he had received thirty-seven vaccines, which is about three times the amount I got in my entire adult life."
He said that doctors initially gave him the runaround, despite initial MRIs pointing to vaccine injury as the likely culprit. Incidentally, this was later proven to be the cause at Johns Hopkins. He says that doctors did not seem too interested in investigating to pinpoint what made his son go from being a normal toddler who was walking and running to someone who would be confined to a wheelchair for the rest of his life. He says no one told him about the Vaccine Injury Court, and he was taken by surprise by the expenses that were involved in taking care of his paraplegic son. That's why he fought against SB277.
Coleman points out that while autism rightfully garners a lot of attention as a part of vaccine injury, it's not the only type of vaccine injury people need to worry about. This does a great disservice to those who have non-autism vaccine injuries, particularly when such a big segment of society still erroneously believes that the link between vaccines and autism has not been proven, and that there is therefore nothing to worry about when it comes to vaccines.
He says that when people ask him why his son is wheelchair-bound, he doesn't hesitate to tell them it's because of a vaccine injury, and most people respond that they have never heard of vaccine injury. He finds this particularly concerning given the fact that many times the people saying this are parents themselves, which means they are vaccinating their children without being aware of the risks.
More people need to speak out
Coleman says that although there is a vocal group of people banding together to try to bring about change, more people need to speak up and fight, especially medical professionals.
In an interview with Age of Autism, Coleman mentions that it has become a political issue. He feels that if Hillary Clinton becomes president, federal vaccine mandates will come down that will be nearly impossible to fight against. He says that Donald Trump, on the other hand, has acknowledged that vaccines do cause autism, and that the vaccine program is problematic. Coleman feels that a lot of people will vote based on this issue.
Coleman calls idea of herd immunity 'insane'
He also calls out those who claim we need herd immunity in order to protect everyone. He says that the idea is "insane," adding: "There is no product ever that has required every single person on the planet to use it in order for it to work. How convenient for them."
Vaccine adjuvant likely behind the paralysis
A 2009 study from the Sheba Medical Center in Israel looked at 37 different cases of transverse myelitis that were linked to vaccines, including MMR, DTP and hepatitis B. They believe that the fact that so many different vaccines are linked to this one autoimmune phenomenon indicates that an adjuvant or other common denominator of the vaccines in question could be the cause.
Unfortunately, vaccines are highly profitable for Big Pharma, which is why they will continue to devote a lot of resources to trying to get everyone to get vaccinated, ignoring less profitable yet incredibly healing supplements like turmeric. This means it is up to each individual to educate themselves on the issue of vaccine damage, and make an informed decision for themselves and their children.
