Unsettled Science: Vaccine Injury and Death Hitting Close to Home

Colton Berrett after 4 years of physical therapy.

(Presented at the Utah Eagle Forum Convention, January 12, 2019)

One year ago, today, I attended the funeral of my friend, Colton Berrett, a then 17-year-old boy, who suffered paralyzing transverse myelitis two weeks after receiving a third dose of Merck’s Gardasil vaccine. Colton endured four years of intensive rehabilitation, regaining only a fraction of his former mobility and strength.

Colton's Family

Colton became the first male face of Gardasil injury after appearing in an interview with the creators of the documentary, Vaxxed: From Cover-up to Catastrophe, in August, 2016.

He met with former Utah Congressman Jason Chaffetz in September, 2016, to speak about his injuries.

Colton’s doctor, who administered the Gardasil series, initially claimed it would protect Colton’s future wife from cancer. However, once Colton became permanently paralyzed by severe spinal cord swelling, his doctor ceased providing this vaccine to male patients in his practice.

Before he was paralyzed, Colton was an incredibly active young man--excelling in baseball, Motocross, and skiing.

Colton's last Christmas

Four years after his injury, because he couldn’t function without assistance, and didn’t want to be a burden, this lovely young man, whose life was full of promise prior to the HPV vaccine, shot himself. A loss felt by thousands, around the world. Candles were lit for him on nearly every continent.

Colton’s death came on the heels of a December, 2017, Slate investigative article that exposed faulty side-effect reporting in the Gardasil safety trials. Slate alleged that rather than reporting all new developments, trial investigators were authorized to withhold information regarding Gardasil side-effects from regulators.

More information on the Gardasil safety trials and approval can be found in a book titled “HPV Vaccine on Trial,” released in September of 2018.

Colton is one of many Utahns, and individuals worldwide, to suffer from debilitating injury and/or death following vaccination.

There is fear in the medical community that the public is losing faith in vaccines. If this is true, it may have something to do with the fact that
  • Health and Human Services has admitted that it never fulfilled the 1986 Congressional mandate to improve the safety of vaccines and report back to Congress;
  • or the fact that 54% of U.S. Children are suffering from chronic illness, increasing in tandem with the CDC vaccine schedule,
  • or the fact that Dr. Andrew Zimmerman, expert witness for HHS in the Omnibus Autism Proceeding said, in a sworn affidavit, that the government deliberately manipulated his testimony in order to hide the vaccine/autism connection from the public,
  • or the fact that parents now know vaccine ingredients include toxic heavy metals and human DNA fragments,
  • or the fact that outbreaks of pertussis, measles, and mumps are occurring in and among fully vaccinated individuals,
  • or the fact that the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program has paid out 4 billion dollars for vaccine injury, to date, with fewer than 1% of vaccine injuries being reported
As parents and individuals become more aware of the risks of vaccinating, vaccine proponents invoke loss of “herd immunity” and a resulting “need” for mandates.

The concept of herd immunity relates to natural exposure in a population; it has never applied to vaccine-induced immunity, which is inherently unreliable.

Numerous Utahans have lost children, have children who have been permanently injured, or have been permanently injured themselves--as a direct and verifiable result of vaccination.
In an apparent effort to increase vaccine uptake, Utah school children are routinely not instructed that they have access to personal, religious, and medical exemptions from any or all vaccines.

College students and missionaries are pushed into vaccinations, by policy or personal zealotry.

Most medical facilities in Utah unconstitutionally require vaccination as a condition of employment.

Vaccine mandates are being pushed, and implemented, for adults and children, across the nation. In Utah, we must end workplace, mission, and college mandates. We must ensure truly informed consent. We must demand safety for ourselves and our children. Where there is risk, there must be choice.

Please help us honor Colton and all victims of vaccine injury, everywhere, by joining us in our efforts to promote informed consent and medical freedom.

Her articles, presentations, interviews, and rally speeches can be found by going to ageofautism.com, then clicking the "Special Reports" tab at the top of the home page. There, you can find her most comprehensive vaccine presentation to date, an 80-minute overview of many vaccine-related issues, listed as her Weston A. Price Foundation Speech. Laura's work focuses on the banning of vaccine mandates, the repealing of the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act, and the immediate and full restoration of individual and parental rights with regard to medical decision making, including vaccination decisions.
