Infant of Pro- Vaccine Parent Dies Following 5 Doses of Vaccine*
By Augustina Ursino
Life after losing a loved one to vaccines is very painful. With a heavy heart, we share Sebastian Ryan Morley’s story. He was a healthy boy whose life ended after routine vaccinations. Sebastian’s mother and grandmother have worked many years in both the veterinary and human healthcare fields. What they were taught in school led them to believe vaccines were safe, but now they will never vaccinate again. We thank his family for coming forward and sharing very important information the public isn’t usually made aware of.
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 check-up. 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 paediatric 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 paediatrician, 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 paediatric 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 paediatrician 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 paediatricians 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 diarrhoea 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.”
Human Vaccines Are Just As Harmful As Pet Vaccines
“I worked in animal medicine for 26 years, I gave thousands of vaccines to pets and I knew vaccines were causing many problems. I had been gathering doubts about vaccines in that field for years, which led me to leave the day practice I worked at and go into a specialty field, where vaccines were not required.
At the vet clinic I worked for, I had serious issues with the way Pfizer handled their sale; right away, they misrepresented themselves, trying to sell us pet vaccines. In the 1990s, dogs received what I call the alphabet shot (DHLPPC) for distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis, parainfluenza, parvovirus, and coronavirus.
About 85-90 percent of smaller dogs under 20 pounds reacted to the leptospirosis vaccine. These dogs were having many types of reactions, some life-threatening, lifelong, and a few died within hours. Bichon Frises, little white furry dogs, are notorious for dropping dead after vaccination and a lot of Bichon Frise owners and breeders won’t vaccinate their dogs.
So many dogs get the diseases they are vaccinated for. The fact that so many dogs reacted was a clue. Back then, most people still had bigger dogs. In the 1990s, there was a shift to the smaller house dogs and that made the incidence of vaccine reactions go up.
I asked the Pfizer rep, ‘Wouldn’t it be prudent to remove the leptospirosis from the vaccine?’ He answered that it was not cost effective to remove the ingredient. I had been gathering doubts about vaccines in that field for a long time, but this really opened my eyes.
After the Pfizer rep said it wasn’t cost effective to remove leptospirosis, (which is stupid really, in my humble opinion, because you just don’t put that ingredient in since it was causing so much harm in these pets), I asked the rep what Pfizer recommended. His answer was to give a high-dose steroid (their high-priced product, another money maker), five minutes before the vaccine.
They expected us to suppress the immune system with the steroid Solu-Medrol®, to then immediately turn around and stimulate it with the vaccine. That didn’t even make medical sense. As I said before, that conversation was an eye opener. That guy must have hated me because I began questioning every vaccine they rolled out.
The rabies vaccine is the worst. It was causing many health problems, including immune system problems and gut problems and I witnessed some dogs would just drop dead on the table after they received the rabies vaccine.
I also witnessed cats having a huge incidence of injection site carcinomas. On the back of the shoulders where we injected them, horrible tumors would develop. Even if surgery was performed, ultimately this still killed the cats, a process I’ve seen take two years. I brought this up to the vaccine rep because I was concerned about what I was observing. The answer to that from the rep was to vaccinate low on the leg, marking which vaccine and which leg was injected. That way, if a tumor developed, you can amputate.
At the time, the feline leukemia vaccine seemed to be the culprit. I believe now that the vaccine manufacturers were aware then that all of the vaccines could be problematic. In general, any of the vaccines could cause this and they don’t test them for causing cancer; now I see why, so they can’t be blamed when they cause cancer.
If the companies are so into making money that they don’t care about their patients, it doesn’t make sense to use their products. Due to what I was learning and the vaccine reactions I was witnessing, I left that practice to go into a specialty field, where vaccines were not required. I have other stories, but that was my light bulb moment. Regarding human vaccines being safer, I just really believed that human medicine HAD to be different and safer, but I was wrong.”
Our Family Will Never Vaccinate Again
“When I left, I started working at Washington State University (WSU) in Pullman, WA, in their Veterinary Teaching Hospital’s ICU, working with fourth year students on practical emergency and critical care.This was years before Sebastian was even born. It was a six hour drive from where my kids lived. I moved back to Seattle after Sebastian died. I remained in specialty medicine where I finished my career in internal medicine. Ironically, a high percentage of our patients suffered from vaccine-related immune-mediated disease.
My daughter also worked in the same veterinary clinic I did. She stayed in the day practice a while longer and she was working there when Sebastian was harmed. Sadly, I guess I didn’t really convey the problems I saw in vaccines then. I really believed that human medicine HAD to have more safety measures than veterinary medicine.
I always wondered if I had yelled louder about the dangers of vaccinating, would things be different? My daughter assures me that she trusted her doctor and would have followed the recommendations anyway. My family will never vaccinate anyone under our care.
My daughter left the field of veterinary medicine, too. She now works in the field of human medicine and is the medical assistant for a doctor in a foot and ankle clinic. She also doesn’t have to vaccinate. Since Sebastian passed away, my daughter has always been up front with her employers, that she won’t vaccinate patients and she discloses all information to patients, if her practice gave vaccines.
Despite their differences of opinion, even with her knowledge about the harm these vaccines are causing, she loves the doctor she is working with, even though he is still a vaccine person, though not as rigid as he once was. She calls this ‘little steps,’ I think.
Prior to me becoming disabled after I broke my back in 2008, I had subbed for a friend who went on vacation. At the one day clinic I subbed in, I gave complete disclosure on vaccines, letting them know I won’t give them. They didn’t invite me back. I never went back to a day practice other than that.
Nowadays, my job is sharing Sebastian’s story, and working against the mandates we know will be revisiting us in our state of Washington. It takes a huge amount of my time. We have to speak for those who can’t anymore. In this, we gather.
I am thankful to Sallie O. Elkordy, Host of ‘The Mary and Sallie Show,’ who allowed me to share Sebastian’s story and to let people know what is happening to children and pets after vaccination.
Please, do your research, folks; know your risk of infection for said disease, if you want to vaccinate. Our immune systems work best when they are not chemically modified. I encourage folks to share my grandson’s story. It is the only thing that helps us come to terms with his death.
I gave Sebastian that first sink bath; it’s my favorite picture of him. Oh, if I could, I would give him a head noogie, because he would have just turned 13 this year and giving grandma a hug just isn’t cool when you’re 13.
In all seriousness, we miss him so much. Not a day goes by that he is not in our thoughts. The tears still fall. We would give anything to see what his 13 year-old self would have been.
It was a very difficult thing for us to go through, losing him the way we did. Like my daughter says, it’s been like a movie that you cannot turn off or rewrite the script. The sequel, I hope, sheds light on the other side, and stops the Vaccine Holocaust. We had the bad luck to win the vaccine lottery; with any decency in the country, countless others won’t be forced to.
If just one person chooses to inform themselves, if just one more person wakes up, if one family is saved from this hole carved out of our lives, then it gives us some peace. It gives this little man a voice, when he had been silenced for so long.
We love you, Sebastian. You will not be forgotten.
Love, Your Grandma,
In Our Hearts He Will Be Remembered
His mother Natasha wrote:
“I miss my little monkey every day. Some days are easier than others but it’s still a very hard thing to swallow. My son’s life was like a very short movie. And just like that, it was over, with the saddest ending. I don’t want this to happen to anyone else.”
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.
