In April 2011, my husband, veteran BBC correspondent Malcolm Brabant, received a yellow fever vaccination in order to go on assignment to Africa.
Within hours, he was severely ill. He developed a very high fever and a severe PSYCHOSIS.
My husband has spent months on end in locked-up psychiatric hospitals because of this one little prick in his left arm.
The name of the vaccine is Stamaril and it is manufactured by Sanofi Pasteur, one of the world’s largest vaccine-manufacturers.
My name is Trine Villemann. I have been married to Malcolm for nearly 17 years. I am a journalist and an author.
Shortly after my husband fell so catastrophically ill, I notified Sanofi Pasteur of his severe adverse event to their vaccine. Their repsonse was that there was no link between my husband’s sudden madness and the Stamaril vaccine.
Sanofi Pasteur claims that they have investigated the batch of vaccines, my husband’s jab came from, but they are refusing to share the findings of their investigation. Therefore, we do not know how Sanofi Pasteur has reached the conclusion that my husband’s high fever and severe psychosis was not caused by their vaccine.
I am convinced that Sanofi Pasteuer’s yellow fever vaccine DID cause my husband’s severe psychosis. There is no other explanation for his sudden, catastrophic illness.
Before the vaccine, he was a strong, healthy and happy human being with no history of any mental illness. After receiving Sanofi Pasteur’s vaccine, he became so insane, that we had to lock him up.
We have waited for more than two years for Sanofi Pasteur to do the right thing.
I am now starting a campaign for justice for my husband. He was badly injured by Sanofi Pasteur’s vaccine and our family has suffered a great deal since, not least our son, Lukas, who was 12 years old, when this disaster struck.
In this blog, I will update you on news about our campaign and my husband.
I will also share some of the information I have gathered over the past two years about Sanofi Pasteur and the safety of their vaccines.
And I will share with you stories about other people, who have suffered mental problems after receiving the yellow fever vaccine.
