    Hepatitis B vaccine has been ruled to cause Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

    By: Beverly Mucha

    The vaccine known as hepatitis B has been ruled by a United States Court of Federal Claims that “a dose of the hepatitis B vaccinationcaused [a patient] to develop chronic fatigue syndrome.” The patient according to a health report from The Refusers on July 9 reveal that the judgment for this case awarded an annuity which is required to pay lifetime medical care expenses on top of the $1.1 million cash award for medical expenses.

    Hepatitis B was originally known as “serum hepatitis” and is an infectious and inflammatory viral illness that affects the liver. This virus causes severe inflammation to the liver, jaundice, vomiting and sometimes death. It is transmitted when one is exposed to blood and bodily fluids that are infectious fluids include those found in the vagina or in semen as well as urine, tears and saliva.

    After the court ruled their final judgment on this vaccine and decided on the settlement from this case Merck has rewritten the insert in the Merck VARIVAX hepatitis B vaccine package insert to include all adverse reactions which will also include chronic fatigue syndrome.

    Some of the other adverse affects of the hepatitis B vaccination also include multiple sclerosis (MS), lupus, arthritis, encephalitis (brain swelling and convulsions), seizures, diabetes, dysfunction to the immune system, Bell’s palsy, impairments to both sight and hearing just to name a few.

    For more information on the hepatitis B vaccine you can read through the Congressional Testimony that was published on in May of 2012.

    The hepatitis B vaccine has many unhealthy side effects that are harmful to ones’ health and well being. Before willingly accepting this or any vaccine all the warning side effects and adverse reactions should not only be read but understood. If you feel strongly against this vaccination it is your right to refuse it being administered.

    Crazy. I had to have that series TWICE (record was lost after first series in junior high). What is most ridiculous, I actually HAD Hep B as a child and should have just had antibodies tested both times.

    This is a 5 year old news story. It looks like there is no actual evidence that the vaccine caused the CFS...the patient just developed CFS sometime after taking the vaccine. It's the same lack of logic that caused so many people to believe that MMR caused their child's autism. If a large number of people are taking a vaccine then some of them will get autism, CFS or MS afterwards, but those people might have developed those illnesses anyway even if they hadn't taken the vaccine. To really know for sure you need to do a study, and when they did that for MMR they found that it didn't actually cause any increase in autism at all.

    I don’t go to doctors with legal problems and I don’t go to lawyers for medical advice.

    Exactly. In the vaccine reporting database they list after effects such as car accident tripped and fell hit by a baseball etc. If you give the half thevpopulation a drink of saltwater, a week later a certain number of them will have suddenly dropped dead. That doesn’t mean their demise was caused by the salt water, but it does mean that 500 lawyers and a Kennedy will bring lawsuits alleging exactly that.

    If 8 patients developed CFS 1-2 months after being immunised, out of the millions of people getting the vaccine, that's not exactly evidence that the vaccine caused their CFS. You would need a prospective cohort study to really know for sure, but none has been done yet AFAIK. The CDC concluded in the 90s that there was no evidence that vaccinations can trigger CFS. That doesn't mean that vaccinations don't trigger CFS, it just means there is no evidence.
