I guess she would have to determine when her DS started showing symptoms and if it related to when he got a vaccine. The article I attached says that it is either acute (developing over hours or days) or subacute (developing over 1 to 2 weeks). If she started noticing symptoms shortly after him receiving say, for instance, the chickenpox vaccine, then I would think she would have something to go with there. I guess the next step would be getting a lawyer to hear her...
This mentions chickenpox and rabies vaccines: http://www.ninds.nih.gov/disorders/t...semyelitis.htm

Is there anything stating "this" many of deaths happen from the MMR vaccine and "this" many deaths happen from measles, mumps or rubella (for instance)?
Quote: Originally Posted by Emmeline II No. The CDC estimates that only 10% of vax reactions are reported. There would have to be an honest accouning of vaccine reactions to even begin to make a comparison. That's kind of what I figured. I guess it would be really difficult to get accurate figures. That's really a shame though. Something like that would be quite helpful for parents when considering the pros and cons for each. I'm sure...
It still amazes me that parents have this done to their tiny, innocent babies. :

"There used to be about 100,000 cases (of rubella) per year, but with universal vaccination this decreased to about 250 cases each year in recent decades. In the past few years, only about 20 cases have been reported each year in the U.S." "Over the past two decades about 10 babies have been born with CRS each...
