After spending time within the intensive care unit, Everest was discharged however swelling persevered in his eyes they usually’re unsure what the long run will convey. “The toughest factor was I let him get that shot. And he was wholesome and properly earlier than,” Cherie mentioned. “However you query it, you may’t assist however query it when all of it goes incorrect … It was fairly terrible.”9

18-Yr-Outdated Hospitalized With Blood Clots After COVID Shot

Emma Burkey, an 18-year-old from the Las Vegas space, additionally developed blood clots in her mind following a COVID-19 vaccine. She obtained the Johnson & Johnson/Janssen vaccine March 20, 2021, and was put right into a medically induced coma inside two weeks resulting from seizures and blood clots in her mind.

She is making a restoration in a rehabilitation heart, however Bret Johnson, Burkey’s minister who was requested to behave as spokesman, advised Fortune, “We don’t know what’s going to occur with Emma, how lengthy it’s going to it take for her to return to a traditional life.”10

April 13, 2021, the U.S. Meals and Drug Administration (FDA) introduced it could pause the usage of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine within the U.S. following reviews of six circumstances of uncommon and extreme blood clots known as cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) mixed with low blood platelet ranges (thrombocytopenia). One loss of life was reported because of this.11

Collectively, the situation is called thrombosis-thrombocytopenia syndrome (TTS). A minimum of 9 extra circumstances had been reported to VAERS between April 13 and April 23, 2021, all in girls between the ages of 18 and 59.12

The experimental Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine makes use of a human adenovirus vector to ship double-stranded DNA for the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein into cells, just like the AstraZeneca/Oxford College experimental COVID-19 vaccine, which makes use of a chimpanzee adenovirus vector.13

Could 10, 2021, an skilled panel in Norway advisable that each AstraZeneca’s and Johnson & Johnson’s COVID vaccines be dropped from the nation’s vaccination marketing campaign because of the danger of blood clots.14

Denmark has additionally rejected Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine for a similar motive,15 whereas within the U.S. the FDA and the U.S. Facilities for Illness Management and Prevention (CDC) lifted the pause on the shot and advisable use of the vaccine ought to resume, stating, “At the moment, the accessible information recommend that the possibility of TTS occurring may be very low, however the FDA and CDC will stay vigilant in persevering with to analyze this danger.”16

Nevertheless, they did add a warning of the chance of their “Truth Sheet for Recipients and Caregivers,” which states:17

“Blood clots involving blood vessels within the mind, stomach, and legs together with low ranges of platelets (blood cells that assist your physique cease bleeding), have occurred in some individuals who have obtained the Janssen [Johnson & Johnson] COVID-19 Vaccine. In individuals who developed these blood clots and low ranges of platelets, signs started roughly one to two-weeks following vaccination.

Most individuals who developed these blood clots and low ranges of platelets had been females ages 18 by way of 49 years. The possibility of getting this happen is distant. It is best to search medical consideration instantly you probably have any of the next signs after receiving Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine:

COVID Vaccine-Associated Dying of Teen Reported to VAERS

One other devastating report in VAERS states {that a} 15-year-old boy from Colorado, with no preexisting circumstances or allergic reactions, died from cardiac failure two days after receiving Pfizer’s experimental mRNA COVID-19 vaccine.18

In an interview with Yahoo Information, Tom Shimabukuro, deputy director of the Immunization Security Workplace on the CDC, was fast to brush off the report, stating:19

“Anybody could make a report, and the data isn’t verified. If categorised as critical, the CDC follows as much as get medical data. A few of these reviews could be true opposed reactions which might be attributable to the vaccine, and a few of these reviews are coincidental well being occasions and never associated to the vaccine in any respect … The advantages of vaccination far outweigh any dangers from vaccination.”

A minimum of 5 deaths have been reported to VAERS following COVID-19 vaccination within the 6- to 17-year-old class.20 13 extra reviews of life-threatening damage or everlasting incapacity have additionally been reported on this age group.21 Regardless of the unknown and doubtlessly lethal dangers, COVID-19 vaccines are being examined on youngsters as younger as 6 months outdated.22

Researchers at Yale Faculty of Medication are main Moderna’s scientific trial of a COVID vaccine for youngsters 6 months to 12 years outdated, which is being performed on 6,750 youngsters at 90 websites within the U.S. and Canada. However as famous by Dr. Inci Yildirim, affiliate professor of pediatrics (infectious illnesses) at Yale Faculty of Medication:23

“A scientific trial for a youngsters’s COVID-19 vaccine requires the consideration of many extra components. Youngsters will not be little adults. As youngsters develop and develop, their immune system grows and develops. A 16-month-old isn’t the identical as a 16-year-old. They’re each youngsters, however their capability to reply to the vaccines isn’t the identical.”

Victims On the lookout for Assist With Medical Payments, Unlikely to Get It

Burkey, the teenager who ended up in an induced coma after vaccination resulting from blood clots and seizures, has medical payments of $513,000, and that’s simply the primary spherical.24 Within the U.S., COVID-19 vaccine makers have already got one thing of a “free cross” relating to vaccine damage legal responsibility and lawsuits beneath the Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness (PREP) Act, handed in 2005 and amended in 2020.25

In 1986, the U.S. Congress created a federal no-fault vaccine damage compensation program (VICP) as an administrative various to a lawsuit for accidents and deaths attributable to vaccines advisable by the CDC for youngsters within the 1986 Nationwide Childhood Vaccine Damage Act.26

Over a interval of 30 years, that legislation was weakened with congressional amendments and federal company rulemaking, in addition to a U.S. Supreme Court docket ruling in 2011 that successfully eliminated all legal responsibility from vaccine producers.

Contested vaccine damage claims filed beneath the 1986 Act are adjudicated by particular masters within the U.S. Court docket of Federal Claims in Washington, D.C., and there’s a belief fund out of which claims are paid, sparing insurance coverage corporations representing vaccine makers and vaccine suppliers from pricey payouts for vaccine accidents and deaths.27 Solely damage claims for vaccines routinely advisable by the CDC could also be heard on this “vaccine courtroom” created within the 1986 Act.

Nevertheless, the U.S. Court docket of Federal Claims is not going to be concerned in ruling in contested COVID-19 vaccine damage claims. The beforehand talked about PREP Act, which was handed by Congress in 2005 and amended in 2020 with loads of pharmaceutical business affect, will individually take care of COVID-19 vaccine damage claims routed by way of the Countermeasures Damage Compensation Program. As famous by Fortune:28

“The Countermeasures Damage Compensation Program, run by an obscure workplace inside the U.S. Well being and Human Providers Division, covers medical prices and misplaced wages not paid by insurance coverage. Some 445 claims had been filed as of April 26 for opposed reactions to both vaccines or therapies, based on the Well being Assets and Providers Administration [HRSA], which runs this system.”

Of those 445 COVID-19 associated claims, about one-quarter are linked to vaccines, and thus far no payouts have been obtained. Whereas HRSA said that no claims have been compensated as a result of they don’t have all the required info, this system has a notoriously low price of compensation.

Within the final decade, solely 39 of almost 500 claims filed beneath the PREP Act have obtained federal compensation, most frequently from reactions attributable to the H1N1 vaccine.29 The underside line, sadly, is that this, as famous by Barbara Loe Fisher of the Nationwide Vaccine Data Heart:

“Already rich drug corporations got no less than $9 billion from the federal government to develop experimental COVID vaccines in report breaking time,30 shaving 5 to 10 years off the traditional vaccine growth, testing and licensing course of.31,32

However that wasn’t sufficient. Congress additionally handed corporations a legal responsibility protect from lawsuits every time the product authorities paid them to supply fails to work as marketed or an individual is damage through the use of it.33

In case you or a cherished one dies or is completely injured by an experimental or soon-to-be FDA licensed COVID vaccine, you can not sue the drug firm who made it, even when there may be proof the corporate may have made it much less reactive or more practical.”
