Indiana Baby Dies in His Sleep Days After Receiving 6 Vaccine Doses
Story compiled by VacTruth.com
One year-old Michael Whitesell loved playing with his older brother, Keegan. They were always together. No one predicted they would be forced apart after Baby Michael was vaccinated.
Michael Eugene Whitesell was born on September 30, 2014.
At the age of one, on October 19, 2015, he was taken in for his one year well-child visit. He received the MMR, varicella, hepatitis A, and flu shot vaccines. This is six vaccine doses.
Three days after this well visit, Michael had a slight fever. His pediatrician suggested to his parents that they give him some medication to reduce the fever. His parents gave Michael some Tylenol and his fever went down.
Michael seemed normal and was back to his old self. He was eating well and appeared to be fine. He even went to bed at the usual time and fell asleep in his crib.
Early the next day, just after seven o’clock in the morning, his mother, Brittney, found him lying on his stomach, cold, lifeless, and blue. She called 911.
While on the phone, Michael’s dad, Thomas, performed CPR on him. Both parents were in so much shock and just wanted him to come back to life, but he was already gone. Nothing they could do would bring him back.
Michael passed away on October 23, 2015, less than four days after he was vaccinated and given Tylenol.
Michael was found lying on his stomach but did not die from suffocation; the coroner already ruled this out. An autopsy was performed on Michael, but the results will not be given to his family for another two months or longer.

Michael’s Parents Were Investigated And His Older Brother Was Removed By CPS
Both Michael and Keegan were being raised by their Aunt Brittney and Uncle Thomas Whitesell since birth. Their biological mother, Thomas’s sister, lives with some medical issues associated with epilepsy and the children’s biological fathers haven’t really been around to take on the parenting role, so the boy’s mother entrusted her brother Thomas and his wife to raise these children. Everyone was loved and happy and the children’s birth mother has always been in their life.
After years of trying to have children of their own without success, Brittney and Thomas felt blessed to provide a loving home for their nephews. They enjoyed being parents and loved raising Michael and Keegan.
When it came time to take the children in for their well child visits, Brittney and Thomas trusted the doctors with their children’s lives. They had their children vaccinated because they were just doing what the doctor recommended.
They didn’t know how harmful vaccines could be, until it was too late.
After Michael died, a routine investigation was done by Indiana’s Child Protective Services (CPS) and Michael’s older brother Keegan was removed from their home, in part because Brittney and Thomas are the children’s aunt and uncle, not their biological parents.
Keegan is only three years old and is now living with Brittney’s grandmother. Thomas and Brittney have been told Keegan will remain there at least until the autopsy report comes back.
Being investigated after a baby dies at home, after vaccination, is what grieving parents are put through. Investigators are sometimes looking to blame the parents, instead of the vaccines. In this situation, it is hard to think CPS has a child’s best interest in mind when they know Keegan just lost his little brother and now they’ve taken him away from the only parents he knows.
Michael and his older brother Keegan were always with each other playing and they loved each other very much. Keegan needs his parents, to help him grieve. Telling him he can’t stay with those he knows as his mom and dad does not seem to be in the best interest of Keegan.
After having to accept Michael had passed away, and then to have Keegan taken away, Thomas wrote, “It sucks not being able to grieve with our three year old boy ourselves, they treat us as criminals when we did nothing wrong.”
