As a result of the 2009 H1N1 swine flu scare, millions of people around the world received the H1N1 vaccine, but what these millions of individuals may not have known was that this vaccine comes with numerous risks. Some might say that protection from the scary swine flu is worth any risk, but is it worth paralysis? What many people may not know is that the H1N1 vaccine side effects are quite concerning (similar to any vaccine), with the vaccine being tied to increased risk for nerve-paralyzing disease Guillain-Barre Syndrome.

H1N1 Vaccine Side Effects – Paralysis

Scientists from Quebec, Canada, reported recently in the Journal of the American Medical Association:

“The disease [Guillain-Barré Syndrome] is thought to be autoimmune and triggered by a stimulus of external origin. In 1976-1977, an unusually high rate of GBS was identified in the United States following the administration of inactivated ‘swine’ influenza A(H1N1) vaccines. In 2003, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) concluded that the evidence favored acceptance of a causal relationship between the 1976 swine influenza vaccines and GBS in adults.”

Researchers also spoke on a large immunization campaign in against the swine flu in Quebec during 2009, where 57% of Quebec’s 7.8 million residents received the H1N1 vaccine. After examining data from all neurology clinics and acute care hospitals that may have had individuals with Guillain-Barre Syndrome, data from summary discharge databases of provincial hospitals, and examining the immunization status of reported cases, researchers concluded that there was “a small but significant risk of GBS following influenza A(H1N1) vaccination”. Noting that Guillain-Barre Syndrome is extremely rare on its own, they attributed 2 GBS cases for every 1 million H1N1 vaccine doses.

In 2009, a staggering 50 percent of doctors refused the H1N1 flu vaccine due to the strong connection with adverse health concerns. Even though 50 percent of the doctors were not receiving the shot, many of them would still recommend the shot to their patients – again, despite the H1N1 vaccine side effects.

In 2010, government health chiefs confirmed a link between the H1N1-containing seasonal flu vaccination and the killer nerve disease known as Guillain-Barre Syndrome, although the link wasn’t actually new. But the information regarding H1N1 vaccine side effects and GBS didn’t stop health officials from pushing the H1N1 vaccine onto the population in 2010 and 2011. As we know, the connection between Guillain-Barre Snydrome and flu vaccines has been alive since the 1970′s.

“The vaccines used to combat an expected swine influenza pandemic in 1976 were shown to be associated with GBS and were withdrawn from use,” Prof. Elizabeth Miller, head of the HPA’s immunization department, wrote.

    My mother got the H1N1 vaccine three years ago and three hours after receiving the vaccine she was unable to but any weight on her left foot due to severe pain in her ankle/join area. Unfortunately, after three years of doctoring there still has been no diagnosis and doctors refuse to say that it's caused by the H1N1 vaccine. They have basically given up on her and have called it a "medical mystery." We (myself and my mom) have started a blog about her story and the medical treatment she has sought. Maybe someone can help shed some light on what she is going through. Any help, information or input would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    Please help! Is there anyone in the U.S. that allowed thier child to get the H1 N1 vaccination child get diagnosed with narcolepsy?

  • NoVak

    They are all toxic trash! How do you cause 'immunity' from stimulating only half of the immune system and basicly stopping the other half from functioning? You cannot! You and your inoculations are the root of almost every disease. Allopathic medicine is a fools creation and a farce full of false.


  • Mindanoiha

    It is true that Guillain-Barre Syndrome may be contracted through vaccines.

    What is not true is that this is "rare".

    It is the manufacturers and other promoters who are biased and who state that the risk is rare, this is repeated in package insert information.

    Many doctors appear to trust biased information.

    Risk of adverse events and "safety" statistics for vaccines are not to be trusted.

    I swear drug companies are using humans as guinea pigs.

    • Ingrid

      Yes, I believe that too!

  • Wendy

    That "small but significant" risk proved quite fatal for my previously healthy father. He never had the flu in his life, or any other thing since the mumps in the 1950's. But the irrational fear of the flu killed him. Significant,yes. Small, no. Be warned. The paralysis came on within hours, the mal-treatment lasted months and he finally gave up, paralyzed, depressed beyond words, kidneys failed, unable to do any of the things he had done all his life up until then. His strength was taken from him in one day, never to return. That's the real risk.

    • Sarah

      I'm sorry for your loss, Wendy.

    • Ingrid

      My Husband is in the Hospital with a Stroke! on May 15th 2012! Paralized, Feedingtube and can not talk. He had a Flushot bevore that! I strongly believe, that this powerful man, now like a Veggie, is a Victim of this Flushot. Sorry for your experience.

        please see my daughters story about my H1N1 flu shot

    • yvon cauchois

      bonjour wendy, j'ai mis en place un site destiné aux victimes du vaccin H1N1 pandemrix dans le but de faire reconnaitre le lien de celui ci avec les deces,graves maladies associés dans le monde entier, le but etant d'interdire les vaccins avec adjuvants, sur face book : victime du vaccin H1N1 pandemrix

  • sueann moore

    I'm so glad I didnt allow my children to get this vaccine in school,despite massive pressure to push it on them from family and school authorities.

  • Jeff Wise

    It's about time more scientists come out and shed light on the fact that the h1n1 vaccine isn't safe and isn't effective.
