    She had a needle and became deaf shortly afterward. Did she have an ear infection, or a virus during that time?

    You can't link a vaccination to deafness anymore than you can link one to autism.

    I sure did. It says the 15 month old lost her hearing in one ear shortly after the vaccine. She could have had a virus.

    Case in point - I am partially deaf. I had a virus and went on antibiotics. A few months later I got hearing aids. I got virus on top of virus and was virtually profoundly deaf in both ears. They cleared up, and my hearing has improved, but I still need hearing aids to help with communication.
    Was it the antibiotics? I don't know. Maybe - but I am not about to play the blame game, and this girl shouldn't, either.
