The law firm’s latest client, Savannah Flores, was a healthy student athlete before a doctor told her to take the shot at age 14. After the inoculation, Savannah suffered severe injuries and was diagnosed with postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS), a common disability witnessed after the Gardasil vaccine. She was also diagnosed with orthostatic intolerance, a condition that makes it unbearable to stand upright. The only way to relieve the condition is to put the person in a reclining position. This disability was accompanied by autonomic dysfunction, hypoaldosteronism, hirsutism, and chronic migraines.
After taking the vaccine, Savannah developed severe fatigue, dizziness, and nausea. Her hormones shifted and she began growing hair on her chest and face. When she turned fifteen years old, she was told to continue the vaccine protocol. After her second dose, she suffered from dysautonomia symptoms, which included trembling, shaking, pressure in the chest, heart palpitations, and migraine headaches. The adverse events were compounding and Savannah was admitted to the hospital several times to deal with heart palpitations, chest pains, dizziness, and tachycardia. She also experienced vertigo and menstrual irregularities.
The vaccine injuries drastically altered her life. Before the vaccines, she loved to play basketball at her local Boys & Girls Clubs of America. She was active and frequently attended youth camps. After the vaccines, the once healthy girl now suffers from postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome, a condition that disables the regular functions of the sympathetic and autonomic nervous system, affecting circulation, heart rate, and blood pressure. Symptoms include lightheadedness, fainting and an uncomfortable, rapid increase in heartbeat.
By the time she entered tenth grade, Savannah had to use a wheelchair. Due to the disabilities, she was better off completing her schoolwork from home. The symptoms were ongoing and requiring frequent doctor appointments. The vaccine injury dominated her teenage years, stealing away her academic and social life. By her junior year, she was able to return to school part-time.
Savannah’s mother, Rhonda Smithson, wanted what was best for her daughter and was convinced that her daughter should receive Merck’s safe and effective “cervical cancer vaccine” -- Merck’s continues to deceptively misrepresent Gardasil as “safe and effective" for preventing cervical cancer. Merck is now promoting Gardasil for children as young as nine years old, and failing to warn parents about the tragic, life-altering injuries that destroy the lives of young people. Children are at zero risk of transmitting HPV to their peers while in school, but states and school districts try to make parents think that these vaccines are necessary and mandatory. The FDA refuses to stand up to Merck, even though there is enough evidence against Gardasil to take the vaccine off the market.
The good news is that the vaccine injuries did not stop Savannah from striving for a better life. When she turned 19, she decided to become a teacher. After years of struggling with the vaccine injuries, she was able to graduate high school and take classes to become a substitute teacher in Nevada’s Elko County School District. She is currently striving to become a full-time teacher. Hopefully in the future she will be able to educate and help other young people avoid Merck’s dangerous Gardasil shot.
