Epilepsy is a serious medical condition with far-reaching implications for children, adults, and their families who are affected by this neurological disorder. Many different vaccines put children at an increased risk of developing epilepsy, and the effects of suffering repeated seizures can last for years or for a lifetime.
In the last couple of decades, seizure disorders like epilepsy have skyrocketed. Almost FOUR MILLION people in the U.S. live with active epilepsy. It’s the fourth most common neurological issue in the country and affects mostly children and older adults (the two most highly vaccinated populations).
There are 150,000 new cases of epilepsy every year and a shocking 1 in 26 people now have it. This wasn’t the case twenty years ago, so it begs the question: what is going on?!!
Did you know that seizures CAN be triggered by vaccination?
Experts claim 80% of epilepsy and seizure disorders are of “unknown” cause, but often seizures are triggered by vaccination. In fact, seizures are listed as a side effect on most vaccine product inserts. written by the manufacturer. Sometimes these seizures can result in chronic seizure disorders and/or epilepsy.
Why? Because there are toxic ingredients in vaccines that, even in tiny amounts, cannot be cleared properly from our bodies through the usual biological detox methods. There’s no detox pathway from the arm or leg and this bypasses the normal paths of exposure, leading to increased toxicity from anything injected. Absorption rates for injected toxins are far higher than when the same toxins are ingested (inhaled or eaten). These toxins often accumulate in the brain, which can trigger brain inflammation and cause seizures.
See the list of vaccine ingredients.
Unfortunately, these side effects are not as rare as they say and are well known. Yet pharmaceutical companies and doctors most often hide these risks from patients — opting to put profit before people. There is a lot of money to be made off of vaccines — an estimated $50 BILLION a year and climbing — and more than 270 new vaccines in the pipeline.

Newborn immune activation may have a long-term negative impact on brain function. McLean Hospital, January 2018.
temporary immune system activation shortly after birth produced two main findings in the adult mice. First, immune-activated mice spent more time in slow-wave sleep, a sleep phase often associated with systemic inflammation. Second, the mice also showed dramatic increases in brief (lasting 2-3 seconds) bouts of abnormal brain wave activity. These events had the hallmark characteristics of spike-wave discharges (SWDs), a type of epilepsy-like brain activity that is not accompanied by full-body seizures.

— Sadly, vaccines are to blame for many cases of childhood epilepsy. Vaccine-related causes of epilepsy can include fever, infection, and swelling of the brain. John Hopkins School of Medicine– Reference 1
— According to the vaccine package inserts from the vaccine manufacturers, seizures are reported as a risk for vaccines against chicken pox, measles, mumps, rubella, whooping cough, pneumococcal disease, polio, tetanus, hepatitis B, diphtheria, and rotavirus. Merck & GlaxoSmithKline- References 2-6
— Additionally, although its package insert does not specifically list seizures as a risk, the flu vaccine increases the risk of encephalopathy, which is a disorder of the brain that impairs function, also increasing the risk of seizures. National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke & FDA- References 7, 8
— Encephalitis, which causes swelling of the brain, another adverse reaction from vaccines, also increases the risk of seizures. Medline Plus- Reference 9
— For members of the military who are force-vaccinated against smallpox, this vaccine also carries an increased risk of encephalitis, encephalomyelitis, encephalopathy, neurological disorders which increase the risk of seizures. FDA- Reference 10
— The package insert for the measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine cautions patients against using this vaccine if their family has a history of convulsions. Merck- Reference 11
— A search of the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) shows that following vaccination, 13,288 cases of seizures have been reported, as well as 1,670 cases of epilepsy. A search of VAERS data for various forms of encephalitis and encephalopathy shows that 1,490 associated adverse events have been reported. These conditions could lead to seizures later. CDC Centre for Disease Control and Prevention- Reference 12
— According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “VAERS receives reports for only a small fraction of actual adverse events.” The National Vaccine Information Center states that less than one to ten percent of adverse reactions to vaccines are ever reported. Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System & National Vaccine Information Centre- References 13, 14
— A similar study conducted in the Netherlands supported these findings, with research showing children with seizure disorders were nine times more likely to die than healthy children… Epilepsy Foundation- Reference 15
