GuerillaRN reports that cases almost always present similarly; the child comes in with a fever approaching 105, or seizures, or lethargy/can’t wake up, or sudden overwhelming sickness, screaming that won’t stop, spasms, GI inclusion, etc. The first question is always, “Is your child current on their vaccinations?” The nurse believes parents just think they are just trying to rule out the vaccine-preventable diseases when GuerillaRN is actually trying to find out how recently the child was vaccinated to determine if it’s a vaccine reaction.

“Too often I heard a parent say something akin to ‘Yes they are current, the pediatrician caught up their vaccines this morning during their check up, and the pediatrician said they were in perfect health!’

But here’s the more disturbing part. For all the cases I’ve seen, I have NEVER seen any medical provider report them to VAERS. I have filed VAERS reports. But I am the ONLY nurse I have EVER met that files VAERS reports. I also have NEVER met a doctor who files VAERS reports.” 2
