5yrs ago from The Blaze
Chinese citizens and officials are outraged over the discovery that hundreds of thousands of vaccines recently administered to children in the country were faulty. What? How could that happen? An investigation has been launched by China's Food and Drug Administration into the practices of vaccine manufacturer Changsheng Biotechnology Co., after it was discovered that the firm allegedly violated safety standards and subsequently sold more than 250,000 doses of common immunizations for diphtheria, tetanus and whooping cough.

Meanwhile, frustrated parents are left waiting to hear what steps to take next, not knowing what type of reaction the impacted children might have to further boosters now that the shots have been deemed ineffective.

A Woman Had Her Child Taken Away. She Blames a Medical Mistake; Doctors Have a Different Story

5yrs ago from The Blaze
A jury in Texas ruled that a woman should have her child taken from her custody. The jury agreed with prosecutors that the mother had been purposely sabotaging the health and well being of her child. The mother swears that her baby’s deteriorating health was caused by a medical mistake that resulted in a wrongly administered Gardasil vaccine to her infant. First, the facts that everyone seems to agree on: The baby in question, Aniya Blu Vasquez, was born on Aug. 4, 2016. On Dec. 29 of that year, Aniya was mistakenly given a shot of Gardasil meant for her 14-year-old brother. This was in addition to her regular, four-month-old vaccine regimen. Gardasil is a vaccine given to children to prevent the spread of human papillomavirus (HPV,) a sexually transmitted disease. Some conservative groups have argued against laws requiring Gardasil vaccinations, on the grounds that this encourages young children to be sexually …
