Healthy young woman disabled for life by Seasonal Flu Vaccine

A 25 year old woman in Ashburn, Virginia has come down with a severe debilitating neurological disorder days after receiving a seasonal flu vaccination. Desiree Jennings has been diagnosed with dystonia, a very rare neurological condition known only to be triggered in adults by head trauma, drug use, and poisoning. Prior to receiving the recent flu shot Desiree was a healthy, active cheerleading ambassador for the Washington Redskins as well as an employee for America Online.

Desiree Jennings is trapped in her body. Intellectually she's all there, but her muscles are fighting each other. She's been diagnosed with dystonia, an extremely rare and debilitating neurological disease.

Desiree is a “one in a million” person. Tragically so. 
She is “the one”. 
Apparently, the one person in a million, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), who may have developed severe and possibly life-threatening side effects from getting a seasonal flu vaccine seven weeks ago at a Safeway in Reston.

The Loudon Times

The story broke last night on TV.  It is already going worldwide.

Yesterday there was only one online mention of this, (The Loudon Times).  Nothing on FOX News, Reuters, cnn, Google News, nothing.

Today, it appears on NBC Washington.

Just showed up on FOX.
