8 year old child dies after receiving the H1N1 Vaccine at Stonybrook Hospital in New York. The 3rd grader attended Park View Elementary in Kings Park, New York.
This vaccine just rolled out in the United States last week. So, it is hard to say how many other people will be affected by this vaccine also. According to the CDC, 30,000 deaths are an acceptable number though.
UPDATE**There seemed to be some confusion earlier. Originally, it was reported that the child died of the H1N1 Vaccine, but later it was stated that it was due to a seasonal flu vaccine. He died of a well-known side effect known as Guillain Barre Syndrome. Well, the vaccine manufacturers have stated that both of the formulas are the SAME with the exception of the viral strain used. The child's name is Sean Weisse. May he rest in peace. His family is in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
