Hepatitis B vaccine caused chronic fatigue syndrome – US Court

By MB July 9, 2013

The United States Court of Federal Claims has ruled that ‘a dose of the hepatitis B vaccination caused [a patient] to develop chronic fatigue syndrome.’

The patient was awarded $1.1 million for medical expenses in the first year after this judgment and an annuity to pay for life care expenses for subsequent years.

This court judgment should be a clear warning to anyone considering receiving the hepatitis B vaccine that your life could be destroyed by this shot.

Pregnant women should be aware that most hospitals will give this vaccine to your child without your permission when they take the newborn baby away from you within hours of birth.

For background on the hepatitis B vaccine (how it came to be recommended for babies by the CDC and an analysis of hep B  vaccine adverse events reported to the FDA) see my Congressional Testimony.

The Merck VARIVAX hepatitis B vaccine package insert adverse reactions section contains fatigue along with multiple sclerosis, seizure, encephalitis, lupus and arthritis.

If someone insists you or your child must get the hepatitis B vaccine, you have the right to refuse. You might suggest that they stick it up their own rear end.

    I got vaccinated for this in jail but didn’t take a single jab. It was 4 weekly injections that are supposed to last for 5 years. God only knows what they put in them though after you look at the amounting circumstantial evidence of how the AIDS virus spread through New York in the 80′s.
    My bro. works in a hospital so got a flu jab which he says is never happening again, so unless you’re likely to need a vaccine there’s no point, the risks just won’t outweigh the benefits………

  2. Nancy Gipson says:

    I worked in the mental health system and I had the 3 shots and also a booster about 4 years ago. I have fibromyalgia and the chronic fatique part of the illness has me unable to work a job. I am reposting this on one of my groups.

  3. Tina Grimsmo says:

    I had to have this vaccine (because of work). The third one didn’t make me immune, so they gave me a fourth one (booster). This is almost a year ago. After 3 days I was completely unable to work and have since been (M.E.) Myalgic Encephalomyelitis.

  4. Heather McConnell says:

    Same happened to me, after traumatic upheaval in my life; went to doc who asked about last tetanus shot (which had been quite awhile). When I got the shot, I got a reaction within a couple of days – not able to stay awake and in pain (only “good” for about three hours each morning) – later diagnosed as CFIDS/ME. I didn’t put it together for some time – but was suspicious. Now that I see what happened to you, I realize these vaccines are toxic experiments and bioweapons.

  5. William Fuzi says:

    The first large group they used for their human safety trials was Gulf War veterans. Have you ever heard of Gulf War illness? Their biggest problem was they ordered it to be administered to all new born babies with in the year after the Gulf War. They had no clue of the length of onset of symptoms. Gulf War veterans were showing symptoms 6 months and up to a couple years after injection with the Hep B vaccine. It is what is causing the major uptick in Autism cases in children.

  6. Jean MacCallum says:

    I had to receive the three shot Hep B shots for work in 2004… I’ve developed fibromyalgia and psoriatic arthritis since 2011. Would we as individuals be able to file a case like this based in this ruling or is there a class action suit we could join… I mean how would I proceed if I felt I had the same situation? Thx for any input!

  7. Patricia Anne Monguia says:

    I received 3 hepatitis B vaccinations around 1991 or so when I was working at a hospital as a medical transcriptionist. I was diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome in 1993 and still have it to this day. It was done on the basis of a high EBV titus titer, but I still wonder if those shots could have caused it. Is there any current lawsuit going on regarding this or could one be brought to the manufacturer?

  8. Val says:

    I was a midwife in the UK and was made to have hep b vaccination to carry on working. I developed M.E. and have been unable to work since. I wonder if any others of us could claim?

    • Patricia Anne Monguia says:

      I also developed CFS after I received 3 hepatitis B shots while working at a hospital in the 1980s. Is there any way to file a claim now?

      • The Refusers says:

        Three year statute of limitations on the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. Sorry.

        They turn most victims down anyway and make your life miserable for years while you wait for them to say no.

        Hope your health improves.

  9. Eleanor says:

    I got the 3 shots of Hep B in 2001, within a week after 3rd shot I developed Optic Neuritis; I was diagnosed with MS about 2 months later. Not getting reasonable answers from my Neurologist, I searched on the Internet back then and saw similar complaints of others. I told my then Neurologist that I had recently completed the three recommended shots of the vaccine, that stumped her in her path as she was walking away from me, her reaction confirmed my suspicions that I had an adverse reaction to the Hep B vaccine. I filed an adverse reaction complaint with the CDC and discovered that Neurologists were unwilling to go on record to link the vaccine with MS, therefore my lawyer said my claim would be hard to prove. Now after taking Copaxone for a while, I have developed an adverse reaction to that.

  10. Bl Br says:

    In 1989 at a corporate restaurant Appx 60 employees were forced to get this vaccine or be fired. I became deathly I’ll and bed-ridden shortly thereafter for almost a month. I had no insurance but went to a clinic the doctor said it was the flu. I went without pay for a month was threatened to be fired if I did not return to work because I had been ‘sick too long’.

  11. Tiffany says:

    I received the 3 Hep B vaccines in 2001 when I was 13 years old. Upon receiving the third and final vaccine, the arm that received the vaccine was sore, really sore. Not just at the injection site but the entire muscle went into spasms with sharp nerve pains. Over the next several months, the pain and spasms did not improve so I saw my family Dr who said that it should resolve itself within 2 years. I am now 26 years old and still have minimal use of my arm. Even walking and having my arm hang beside me hurts so bad that I have to cradle my arm. Since then I have also been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. It took 8 years to get a diagnosis. I’ve only just started connecting the dots because I was raised pro-vaccine so the thought never even crossed my mind at the time. I’ve chosen not to vaccinate my children from my own personal, every day hell. How convenient that they only allow up to 3 years to open a case against vaccines when a lot of these chronic conditions take longer than that to diagnose!

  12. Louise says:

    I’m writing a report for a patient on a possible link between vaccine and chronic fatigue syndrome. Do you know on what facts they established a causal link between the hepatitis B vaccine and the onset of chronic fatigue ? Thank you very much in advance for your attention.

  13. roberta says:

    Ok, since the cause is known, is there anything that can be done to improve the symptoms ?

  14. Gina says:

    I had my last booster of the Hepatitis B vaccine on June 2, 2014. A day or so later I started feeling weak and exhausted and it has progressed and never gotten better. I am a survivor of Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma for almost two years and had a lot of strength come back before I had this shot. Prior to the vaccine I had bronchitis and was totally feeling good when she checked me out. Then the vaccine!! I have talked to numerous specialists, including the doctor that gave me the vaccine, and none of them agree this is why I have such overwhelming fatigue. I am not against children getting their vaccinations ever but I don’t know if I really needed this or if something can be done, or is it too late?

  15. Gina says:

    I have to add I have had all the tests done from echocardiogram, blood tests, etc. None came back abnormal. All doctors looked at me like that just couldn’t be true about the vaccine. I know the timing was a day or so after.

    • Tina Grimsmo says:

      I got ME 3 days after the vaccine. Glaxo Smith Kline says another cause is more plausible since reactions to the vaccine is likely to occure 1-2 days after the vaccine. But they don’t outrule the connection. So I would guess you have a strong case. Look at the package insert. You will find your symptoms there. Plus a lot of reasearch shows many different autoimmune reactions after hepatitis B vaccine, more than most vaccines, actually.

  16. Gina says:

    Thank you so much for your reply. I am sorry I didn’t get back here sooner. My endocrinologist seems to be the only doctor that believes the vaccine is a possibility here. He is not saying definitely but he has an open mind. He told me he has seen vaccines trigger autoimmune responses to vaccines.
