Gardasil sidelines young man's tennis career
Note: It's with no pleasure that we share this story written by a Dad who realized that his son had been injured by the Gardasil vaccine. We welcome him to the Vax Injury "club" without joy. No one wants to watch their precious child fall ill after a vaccination. I've said for many years now, Gardasil is the vaccine that will tip the scales forcing Americans recognize vaccine injury as a common threat. Babies scream and cry. But teens and young adults speak. They explain their feelings, their pain, they lose out on being able to participate in life, they don't just lie in crib or on a paper covered table where the doctor pooh poohs Mom and Dad's concerns.
We wish his son Quentin well. Please take a look at the comments, in agreement. Gabler is learning the worst way possible, as we did. Please be respectful if you comment about his point of view or his son. Thank you.

I'm writing this post as the dad of a young 12 year old tennis player. My son, Quentin, was ranked Top 5 in Florida and was doing pretty well.
In April, May and June of 2019 he played good tennis, but was certainly not winning all the time. It’s also healthier for young tennis players, if they do not win more than 60 to 70% of their matches.
Quentin was normally practicing twice a day. Two hours with his coach and most of the time another 2 to 3 hours with other tennis players. Once a week he was doing match play in a very good group with some other very good kids from Florida, often several other Florida Top 10 players.
One evening in April while participating in the above mentioned match play, Quentin was complaining about his legs getting weak and heavy. I did not take this seriously, because he already played 4.5 hours when it happened. So I told him, that it’s okay to be exhausted after so much tennis. He actually didn’t want to go home anyway.
In the next two months he was complaining about the same symptoms maybe 4 more times. He was also visibly growing. So I thought, nothing to be concerned about.
In July of 2019 he played the National Clay Court Championships and did well. When we came back home from the tournament, he did his regular practice with his coach and also played matches with other kids.
Suddenly and without any obvious warning signs he developed severe knee pain, but unfortunately this can happen when you practice that much.
Then something occurred which had never happened before!
Quentin is playing tennis almost since he was 3 years old. He never ever didn’t want to practice. I never ever had to push him in any way. Sounds unbelievable, but is 100% true.
His coach, Marin, who is now with him for more than 4 years and is like a family member, called me that he has to bring him home. Marin said that he is so exhausted, like he has never seen him before. Quentin didn’t want to go home, but the coach said that there is no chance to practice.
The next day Quentin said he is fine again – and practiced again.
Two or three days later Quentin almost fainted at home, right after practice. Now we were really concerned. We went to a pediatrician and a cardiologist. We did blood work and EKG and found almost nothing, except that his inflammation markers (A/G ratio) were high, but the pediatrician told us, that this can be just a regular infection and will likely be better soon.
We let him stay home for some days and he actually got better again.
Also his knee pain was improving. After a few days of restarted practice, he begged me desperately to go to the National Hard Court Championships.
We drove to the tournament, which was an 11 hour ride. Unfortunately he could only and barely finish one match against one player, who later reached the semi finals. Because of severe knee pain Quentin actually had to forfeit and we drove 11 hours back home…
We decided that it would better for him to stay home and rest for a few more days.
At the end of the week he got a HEP A vaccination.
He was still resting at home, but wanted to practice badly. So on a Monday I’ll let him do serves – and he looked like a very old man in the body of a 12 year old!
He could not even toss a ball and was devastated about it. He didn’t understand how he could be so exhausted. Quentin is normally a kid who would never give up, but he just couldn’t toss a really not that heavy tennis ball.
His symptoms got more severe over the next two months – and the doctors could not find anything. READ MORE HERE.
