Triplets Became Severely Autistic Within Hours of Vaccination in 2007 and Continue to Suffer
Detroit, Michigan: Richie, Robbie and Claire McDowell received the pneumococcal vaccine on June 25, 2007, and within hours, they all become severely autistic at 9 months of age. The parents were told autism is genetic but a geneticist countered that all three children could not shut down on the same day from a genetic defect. None of the children fully recovered and Clair is still non-verbal and is not potty-trained. The McDowells found out seven years later that the vaccine was contaminated and had been pulled from the market after it killed a 2-year old, which was hidden from the public.
