Infant Dies Following 5 Vaccine Doses

In Memory of Sebastian Ryan Morley
May 11, 2002 – January 22, 2003
He passed away at eight months old, from liver failure, after being vaccinated.
Sebastian’s grandmother, Valerie Murfin, shared:
“On December 11, 2002, when my grandson Sebastian was seven months old, he was taken in for his six month well child checkup. My daughter Natasha, who is his mother, was not bullied into getting him vaccinated, she was just following what she thought was good advice, what we both thought was good advice at one time.
During this visit, Sebastian received the vaccines for DTaP, hepatitis B, and HiB. This is five vaccine doses.
Sebastian began vomiting two days later and suffered jaundice. After turning yellow around his mouth on 12-15-02, his mom took him to the doctor because he became very lethargic. She was begging for him not to die on the drive to the doctor’s office. They admitted him to St. Peter Hospital, in Olympia, where he stayed for two days.
Tests were run and it was found that Sebastian’s liver was failing. After an ultrasound showed his liver stopped swelling, they allowed him to be discharged, but warned my daughter not to let him bump his head or anything, because he could bleed out.
Before being discharged, his doctor did more blood work and told my daughter that she would call her, and that they assumed Sebastian had hepatitis C somehow. This was six days after the vaccines were given to him, on 12-17-02.”
Sebastian’s Brain Swelled and His Organs Shut Down
“That phone call came in on 12-20-15 and the news made my daughter aware it was urgent. Sebastian was rushed to the ER at Seattle Children’s Hospital. This is where he stayed and suffered, for more than a month.
Towards the end of his stay, his eyes were no longer responsive and one swelled up horribly; his choke reflex was gone. I think his little brain had had enough of all the additional chemicals he received while in the hospital. Sebastian’s brain had swelled outside of his soft spot, they had no more hope for him, and they wanted to turn off the machines.
My daughter came out of that room, looked at me and said, ‘Don’t let them kill my baby, Mom.’ I had to tell her he was already gone. I watched the light die in my daughter’s eyes.
They did unplug him. He died in his mom and dad’s arms. He died on January 22, 2003, at just 8 ½ months old. Forty-two days after that well child visit, multiple organs of his shut down and his little body couldn’t fight anymore.
My most helpless moment in my life was when I had seen the ultrasound of Sebastian’s brain. By this time, all of his organs were shutting down. They had him in a medically-induced coma for about the last five days. The first three days, they would let him wake up. The last two days, he stopped waking up, even when coming out of the anesthesia.
Ultimately, if he hadn’t had the vaccines, none of this would have happened.
My daughter did question the vaccines with the doctor that gave them and her initial response was that they just never see that. Although Sebastian’s doctor later on was more supportive of the fact that vaccines could not be ruled out.
His cause of death listed on his death certificate is ‘Fulminant Liver Failure of Unknown Etiology,’ though the pathologist stated clearly when he wrote, ‘Because this child was vaccinated less than 24 hours prior to onset of illness, we can NOT rule out the vaccines as causative.’
This is as close anyone gets to admission that the vaccines were responsible.”
Vaccines Were The Only Plausible Cause Of Sebastian’s Liver Failure
“In the days he was in the in the pediatric ICU at the hospital, they did every test they could at the time. There was no physiological or environmental reason for his liver failing. I kept saying in the hospital, he was just vaccinated, to look into the vaccines, but hospital staff did not make the connection.
After Sebastian got sick and was taken to the hospital, that was when my daughter also made the vaccine connection; I made sure she was aware. Even the hospital doctors kept saying vaccine reactions never happen. If I weren’t so vocal about it, they wouldn’t have put the vaccines into the equation.
His pediatrician, who actually worked with him, has been very helpful. She felt it was important enough to report Sebastian’s reactions to the Vaccine Adverse Reaction Reporting System (VAERS).
We appreciated her acknowledging what happened to my grandson but Sebastian’s passing has not stopped her from vaccinating other children.
On Sebastian’s VAERS report, some things were reported inaccurately. His age wasn’t listed correctly; he was seven months old when he received the six month vaccines. We tried fixing the discrepancies in the report, but we were not able to get anyone who would correct them.
Considering most parents and doctors have never reported a reaction to VAERS, due to not being informed and doctors not being enforced to report reactions, mistakes can occur due to being unfamiliar with the process and sometimes, the mistakes occur on the VAERS end, because reps don’t list the information provided correctly.
It is hard to read this. Knowing how Sebastian suffered from the vaccines is why my family will not vaccinate further.”
Sebastian Became More Sick After Each Hepatitis B Vaccine
“When I was in the hospital while Sebastian was there, I overheard two nurses talking in the hall. One nurse was from the pediatric ICU, where Sebastian was, and the other nurse was from the neonatal unit, where the preemies are.
The nurse from the neonatal unit said to the other, ‘Well, we just vaccinated all the babies, I hope we have beds open,’ meaning these premature babies that were doing fine in the neonatal unit were just vaccinated and the neonatal nurse was saying to the pediatric ICU nurse that they hope they have beds open because these babies are now needing to be put on respirators, since they are now in critical care. Because of the hepatitis B vaccine just given to them, now the babies aren’t doing well anymore. Doctors and nurses are more aware of vaccine injuries than they lead you to believe.
My daughter is not able to be the champion for Sebastian as I am. She is firmly against any vaccines, as you can imagine, but in 2003, she was so vilified. She cheers me on in our fight. We didn’t know about the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program until four years after Sebastian passed away. The deadline to file was two years after he passed away, so it was too late for us to file a claim.
My daughter found out she was pregnant the day after Sebastian’s funeral. She had a baby girl who will be 12 in September 2015. Sebastian’s sister has never been vaccinated and is completely healthy.
Since this happened, my daughter did still see the same pediatrician after having our granddaughter, but she never pushed my daughter to vaccinate her. When my granddaughter was about three years old, because of a change in insurance, this forced my daughter to change pediatricians as well. She does love and miss Dr. O’Leary and would probably still see her to this day, if she had the choice, because she did not ever pressure her to vaccinate again.
Even though she was the one who vaccinated Sebastian leading to his passing, this doctor acknowledged his death and respected my daughter’s choice as a mother to not vaccinate further. It was important she had a doctor who understood why she no longer wanted to vaccinate.
We believe it was the third hepatitis B vaccine that was the cause of Sebastian’s health decline. After each set of hepatitis B-containing vaccines, Sebastian got more and more sick. After his first hep B shot was given two days after birth, he got diarrhea and had a fever. He wouldn’t take the breast milk and he got dehydrated. At three and four days old, my daughter was devastated as a new mom who had to feed him formula the first week.
After Sebastian received his second hepatitis B vaccine, along with the other two month vaccines, his mom had gone to Six Flags as a treat from her friends and Sebastian’s dad called her saying he was very lethargic and had a fever. Sebastian’s dad Jeff gave him medicine and watched him like a hawk, as he seemingly got better.
Then his last set of shots given contained the hepatitis B vaccine and his liver shut down.
The reason we also think the hep B vaccine played a big part in this is because I can’t be vaccinated, because my immune system mimics the disease when vaccinated to prevent it. I think Sebastian may have gotten this trait from me. His immune system saw hepatitis and killed his liver.
I have read studies since this happened, involving mice, which show this can happen. I spent three years in allergy treatment and through this process, my immunologist discovered my immune system issues. After three years, he finally admitted there was no way to fix my allergies.
In my family, I have a brother with Crohn’s disease and two cousins with lupus; my mother has immune-mediated kidney disease. I have an aunt with rheumatoid arthritis. All of us were vaccinated in the past. Vaccines are clearly not great for everybody. Physicians ask you about familial heart disease, diabetes … why not immune system issues that may be contraindicated for an immune system stimulant?”
Sebastian’s Story Has Never Made the News
“This is not the type of story any vaccine supporter, which mainstream media serves, will allow out. My point is, until you have a reaction close to you, until it hits you in the face, you want to believe that those in power have your best interest at heart.
If your doctor’s intake money is getting cut by the insurance company for not following standardized prophylactic treatments, and your sales rep is pressuring you into buying a cheap vaccine, you buy in bulk and everyone gets vaccinated.
If you don’t vaccinate, your doctor’s bottom line is affected. If your doctor fails to get a good family history, on any disease in your family, and then pushes vaccines as 100 percent safe and effective, then perhaps your doctor doesn’t have your best interest in mind. This is a major income for all involved.”
