- Nicholas is the son of MMA fighter Nick Catone and Marjorie Madison-Catone
- The billboard quotes Nicholas’ mom who is a nurse saying ‘vaccines can kill’
- Catone family blames the DTaP vaccination for their 20-month-old son’s death
- DTaP vaccine helps children younger than seven develop immunity to three deadly diseases caused by bacteria: diphtheria, tetanus, & whooping cough
A ‘vaccines can kill’ billboard that features the son of a former professional fighter, who blames his toddler’s death on vaccinations, has been erected in Missouri.
Twenty-month-old Nicholas Catone, of New Jersey, died suddenly in his sleep in May 2017, 17 days after receiving a DTaP vaccination, according to his parents.
The vaccination helps children younger than age seven develop immunity to three deadly diseases caused by bacteria: diphtheria, tetanus, and whooping cough.
But Nicholas’ parents, former MMA fighter, Nick Catone and his wife Marjorie Madison-Catone, who has been a nurse for 12 years, believes their son’s death was caused by the vaccination.
Nicholas is now the face of his parent’s campaign to bring awareness to families that ‘vaccines can kill’.
The billboard features a quote from the toddler’s mother that reads: ‘As a nurse I was never taught vaccines can kill until my son was a victim.’
The billboard was put up by Learn The Risk, a public awareness campaign and non-profit that educates the public on real dangers of pharmaceutical products, including vaccines.
According to the organization, there are also billboards in Brick, New Jersey, Nicholas’ hometown, Boston, Massachusetts, Syracuse, New York, and Middletown, Connecticut.
Learn the Risk shared the information in a post that read: ‘As with many healthy children that die right after vaccines, his [Nicholas’] death was labeled Sudden Infant Death (not a real cause, only a label).’
‘23,000 babies die in the US in their first year of life. During that same period, children get 35 toxin-filled vaccines. Sudden death is a known side effect of vaccines. Coincidence?!!’ the post added.
Earlier this month, Nick Catone opened a new gym in Ocean County, New Jersey, in honor of his son.
Nick said at the time that his son went to bed one night and didn’t wake up the next morning in May 2017.
Nicholas died 17 days after receiving the DTap vaccination.
An autopsy found that nothing was wrong with the toddler, but the Catone family continued to search for answers.
‘Instantly I had this gut motherly instinct that the only thing that came across his path was that he was recently vaccinated,’ Marjorie told News 12.
She immediately pulled her son’s medical records and noticed that he kept getting sick after being vaccinated.
‘You get angry because it all could have been prevented,’ Nick said.
On top of putting up the billboard, the Catones are also taking their case to vaccine court.
Vaccine court, known as the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP), was started as a result of a law passed in 1986 that gave pharmaceutical companies total legal immunity from being sued due to injuries and deaths resulting from vaccines.
The program compensates families who can prove their child was injured or died due to vaccinations.
Millions of vaccinations are given to children and adults in the US each year.
According to a 2015 article from the National Library of Medicine, ‘serious adverse reactions are rare’.
‘However, because of the high volume of use, coincidental adverse events including deaths, that are temporally associated with vaccination, do occur,’ the article reads.
The article continues to say that loved ones usually question whether the death was related to vaccination.
‘A large body of evidence supports the safety of vaccines, and multiple studies and scientific reviews have found no association between vaccination and deaths except in rare cases,’ the article reads.
