Victim of vaccine trials says files are ‘locked up’

A woman used in infancy as a “guinea pig” in controversial vaccinations has said all files relating to the secret trials remain “in limbo” and are unable to be accessed as a result of a legal injunction.

Mari Steed (50), an American woman whose experience of the secret four-in-one vaccine trials was revealed by the Irish Independent in August, yesterday expressed grave concern over the protection of the records relating to the trials conducted on institutionalised children in the early 60s by the Wellcome Foundation, now GlaxoSmithKline.

The files had been handed over to the Ryan Commission, formerly the Laffoy Commission into child abuse, by GlaxoSmithKline.

Mari Steed was involved in the first trial, which sought to find out what would happen if four vaccines were combined in one jab.

“I got up to four different shots of the vaccine. My mother later told me that I reacted by vomiting after one jab,” she said.

The Commission to Inquire into Child Abuse (CICA) began investigating the vaccine trials in 2001. But, following legal action by two doctors involved in the trials, deemed to be too elderly and frail to take part in a court case, the investigation by the Commission into this aspect of how children in institutions were treated was brought to a standstill.

Ms Steed yesterday claimed the files were now “locked up” in the offices of the Commission.

“Nobody has done anything with these files. They are still in the offices of the Laffoy Commission,” she said. “We don’t know what is going to happen — the files are in limbo and nobody can access them.”

Ms Steed, along with several others, is currently preparing a class action in the US against the drug company responsible for the tests.

Ms Steed, who was adopted by an American family at the age of 18 months and has lived in the States ever since, was administered the vaccine while she and her mother resided at the Bessborough Mother and Baby Home in Cork, run by the Sacred Heart Convent.

    Rita, do you really believe the Irish people in power(both male and female) are any different?

    What age (bracket) are you? Sounds to me like you’re an adult still in the grip of the Roman Catholic indoctrination you were routinely subjected to as a child?

    I could be wrong …

My name’s Mark and I am the director of a possible future documentary in which I am seeking participants who have been used unfairly, or believe they have been used unfairly in vaccination experimentation. I am aware that some people on this site have horrific memories the vaccination scandal and would love to hear from you. The e-mail is vaccinationsdoc@hotmail.com. Please contact me for more details if interested. Your voices deserve to be heard.

  9. The world is such a dreadful place with all of these lunatics that think they are running the world. We had the swine flu false epidemic and now see loads of court cases to take action actions these vacines. Yet now the flu shot which is been given out includes the swine flu shot. One elderly woman I spoke to the other night did not even know the swine flu part had been added and now she is really sick from it. Harney you are a real evil monster and should be tried for genocide crimes by the people of Ireland, maybe it will happen yet. Now we also see Glaxo Smith Kline shutting down facilities is this like the religious did, shut down and get out so the victims have a harder fight to get justice. Counsellor Brendan Mansfield in Dungarvan, Co. Waterford works for Glaxo Smith Kline maybe all complaints should be sent to him. By the way would this constitute a conflict of interest, we hear he is also the shop steward at the Dungarvan plant. Where these counclilors gett he time to do their job while doing another job is anybodies guess. No wonder the country is in the state its in. I would hope that the drugs trial abuse victims make a complaint to him and show up his conflicting inerest in the pharma connections in Ireland. Time to wage war on all these political conflictions. Paddy great site if people want to publish their full stories on the vicitms of the state please link us thanks.
