SUMMARY

More than one-fourth of all Persian Gulf War coalition soldiers remain seriously ill with Post-HPV Vaccination Syndrome, Macrophagic Myofasciitis (localized lesions in the muscles found at the site of a vaccination with an aluminium-containing vaccine), and Gulf War Illness. Vaccine-induced autoimmune dysautonomia may be the common underlying mechanism of all three illnesses, characterized by chronic fatigue, widespread pain, and dyscognition (difficulty concentrating, disorganized thinking, memory problems, and inability to stay focused or alert.)

Several epidemiological studies suggest a link between multiple vaccinations at the time of the military operation and the development of these illnesses. Macrophagic Myofasciitis and Post-HPV Vaccination Syndrome are two newer vaccine-related disabling ailments affecting our veterans.
