Adverse reaction and Death after MMR Vaccine

Something in the System
When a child dies of measles the story hits the headlines. But when children die after the MMR jab, their stories are hard to find.
This is the sad story of Harriet Moore told by her Mum.

The MMR vaccine. Side-effect of vaccine
Encephalitis (brain inflammation), Swelling of the salivary glands - developed by one in 100 people vaccinated against mumps
Mild encephalitis (brain inflammation) -Swollen glands, stiff neck, or joint pains - developed by one in 20 people vaccinated against rubella, Bruising or bleeding - developed by about one in 30,000 people after first dose of vaccine.
Other more serious complications reported by Merck in MMR vaccine post-marketing surveillance include:2
brain inflammation (encephalitis) and encephalopathy (chronic brain dysfunction);
panniculitis (inflammation of the fat layer under the skin);
atypical measles; syncope (sudden loss of consciousness, fainting);
vasculitis (inflammation of the blood vessels);
pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas);
diabetes mellitus;
thrombocytopenia purpura (blood disorder);
leukocytosis (high white blood cell count);
anaphylaxis (shock);
bronchial spasms;
arthritis and arthralgia (joint pain);
myalgia (muscle pain);
polyneuritis (inflammation of several nerves simultaneously).
Using the MedAlerts search engine, which facilitates an online search of the federal Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) database, as of December 14, 2014 there have been 6,962 serious adverse events reported to the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) in connection with measles vaccine since 1990, with over half of those occurring in children three years old and under. Of these events 329 were deaths, with over half of the deaths occurring in children under three years of age. Adverse events following MMR vaccination reported to VAERS include:
lupus (autoimmune connective tissue disorder);
Guillain-Barre syndrome (inflammation of the nerves);
aseptic meningitis (inflammation of the lining of the brain);
cardiomyopathy (weakening of the heart muscle);
hypotonic-hyporesponsive episodes (collapse/shock);
subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE);
ataxia (loss of ability to coordinate muscle movements);
parathesia (numbness, burning, prickling, itching, tingling skins sensation indicating nerve irritation)
In its MMRII product information insert3 Merck also notes that during MMR vaccine post-marketing surveillance, there have been post-vaccination reports of:
erythema multiforme (skin disorder from an allergic reaction or infection);
urticarial rash (hives, itching from an allergic reaction);
