The Hard Road for the Vaccine Injured By Mrs Vera West
I am in the local library and the old lady, a young thing by my standards needed help with an issue. We got chatting, as women do, and she told me that she had needed a gall bladder removed during the heart of the Covid freak-out, as the boys call it. She had one mRNA vax, and now has many adverse effects. Every woman she knows has some problem. But, she did not want to talk about it much, as it made her clinical depression worse. So, if one is vaccine injured, then what? Rebekah Barnett shows that there is not much on offer, and the people who did this to you, do not care. Still, as detailed below, there are some things you can do.
“If you’re vaccine injured, this is the state of things.
Doctors don’t know how to diagnose you or what to do with you.
Compensation schemes are hard to qualify for and offer only limited payments.
Medical professionals are typically biased against acknowledging vaccine injury for fear of appearing ‘anti-vax’.
The public barely even knows you exist.
This issue is close to my heart. I have been interviewing the vaccine injured in my volunteer role for Jab Injuries Australia for the best part of a year and I have witnessed firsthand the human suffering created by the rushed, coercive vaccination program which began in 2021.
The hard truth is that if you are injured by these products, the people who did this to you cannot (or will not) help you.
I will not labor the problem. Rates of serious adverse events from the Covid vaccines are likely much higher than official reporting indicates.1 I have previously raised concerns around the biases of medical professionals causing the official data to grossly underrepresent actual injury rates, HERE (first half of post). Other factors include the lack of industry and public education2 about the eye-watering list of potential side effects, and in part to the passive nature of the major safety surveillance systems.3
We are in the midst of a humanitarian crisis which remains largely unacknowledged by the media, the medical fraternity, and our governments.4
With the latest stated goal of vaccine passports for travel (thanks a lot G20 grubs) and with ever more vaccines being rolled out for Covid and all manner of other illnesses, this problem is not going away.
In my role as interviewer of the injured, I have noted patterns and tips that I think will be useful. Below is a list of things to do if you think you might have experienced an adverse event (AE) after vaccination. Though this list was written with Covid vaccines in mind, it is equally applicable if you think you’ve been injured by another type of vaccine as well.
- Document everything.Keep a journal of your symptoms every day. This is an important record, and will be useful if you suffer from brain fog over prolonged periods, which many injured do. Starting the documentation process will make things a lot easier down the track, especially if you want to seek compensation.
- Take a witness to the hospital and medical appointments.Medical gaslighting is unfortunately common, and oftentimes the injured are made to feel like they’re just being ‘anxious’ or ‘crazy’. Having a witness will put medical professionals on their best behaviour, and will mean you have someone to corroborate your version of events should you need it.
- Get everything in writing.Do not allow hospitals to discharge you without a printed summary. If a medical professional makes a verbal diagnosis, ask them to write it down. If they refuse to write it down, ask them why? And then document it yourself (see point 1).
- Get a second opinion.Or even a third, or fourth or fifth. Most of the injured I interviewed who had vaccine-induced myocarditis or pericarditis were initially diagnosed with anxiety and prescribed anti-anxiety medication. If you know that something is not adding up, don’t give up.
- Try to separate facts from feelings. Both are valid, but being able to separate them out makes it harder for people to write you off as ‘hysterical’ or ‘just anxious’. If you can communicate your physical symptoms and factual version of events (‘I felt X in my left arm, I fell to the floor, the doctor did AB test and said this or that’) separate from your emotional experience (‘I felt gaslit, I thought I was going to die, the doctor was awful’), it strengthens your testimony in the face of those who are predisposed to disbelieve you.
- Join a support group.Many injured say that they get invaluable information on diagnoses, tests and treatment from support groups, where the injured can share what has worked and what hasn’t. Because these Covid vaccines are relatively untested, doctors often have no idea what they’re looking at or how to treat it. Support groups are a great resource for getting leads for new avenues to explore in partnership with medical professionals (once you find the right ones to partner with). Making friends within the injured community is particularly important, as you don’t have to explain yourself to them - they already understand what you are going through.
- Ask for help.The process of getting a diagnosis and recovering from vaccine injury can be gruelling and re-traumatising in itself. Ask for support from those around you, whether that be meal delivery or a listening ear. See a counsellor or grief specialist if you need support in processing what for some is a life-changing event.
- Get your batch info.Australians can get their batch number by following the prompts You can search the database at How Bad is my Batch to see if there are any known issues with your batch. This may prove helpful during your diagnosis process.
- Report your AE to the relevant database in your country.That’s TGA for Australia, Yellow Card for the UK, EudraVigilance for the EU and VAERS for the US. If you’re outside of the US, it’s recommended to report your AE to VAERS as an international AE in addition to your own country’s database, as VAERS is the most hotly watched and analysed database for tracking Covid AEs.
- Find medical professionals to partner with on your journey back to health.Don’t give up on the medical profession. There are some good ones out there who have the knowledge, skills and compassion to assist you in recovery. Ask around until you find the right people to work with. There are already a number of doctors specialising in treatment for the vaccine injured.
This is by no means an exhaustive list. But it’s a good place to start.
I will list some resources below for detox, repair and support. If you know of any others that I haven’t listed, please add them in the comments and I’ll update this list as we go.
If you are vaccine injured and would like to share your story, please contact
For those of us who have not been injured by these products - we are the support crew.
Our job is to listen, comfort, advocate, and help in the most practical ways. That might mean cooking dinner or cleaning the house for someone who just can’t get out of bed today. Spouses may need to adjust to financially providing for their injured partner for a period of time while they’re unable to work. Some of us will have injured friends or family who are suffering but are in denial about the cause. Compassion, patience and consistency will go a long way in these cases. If you are supporting an injured person, you yourself may need support, so go easy on yourself and take time out when you need it.
Tell your family, tell your friends. Wishing you all healing, recovery and strength of spirit.”
As an illustration of the harm, here is this week’s sad Covid vax adverse effects story:
“The death last year of a 14-year-old Irish teen three weeks after he received Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine has sparked an investigation that could take years, officials involved in an inquest into the teen’s death said this week.
As part of the “considerable investigation,” authorities said they will request safety information about the vaccine from Pfizer.
Joseph McGinty, a secondary school student from Achill Island, Ireland, received the Pfizer vaccine on Aug. 20, 2021. On Sept. 1, 2021, he was hospitalized overnight at Mayo University Hospital and discharged the following day.
On Sept. 8, 2021, McGinty revisited the hospital for review. He died at home on Sept. 13, 2021.
Patricia McGinty formally identified her son’s remains on the day of his death but “has very little recollection of the morning in question,” the family’s attorney, Rita Kilroy, told the court.
The coroner involved in the case, Pat O’Connor, called McGinty’s death “a matter of significant public concern.”
“The circumstances of Joseph McGinty’s death is that COVID vaccination was administered to him [and] that there appears to have been either a reaction or a significant change in his medical circumstances following the administration of the vaccine and that subsequently, unfortunately, Master McGinty died,” O’Connor said in Monday’s hearing.
Kilroy told the court this week, “We would perceive there to be a concern for public health and safety and potential for recurrence in two circumstances.”
An inquest is a formal investigation conducted by a coroner in order to determine how someone died. The purpose of an inquest is limited to establishing the identity of the deceased individual as well as where, when and how they died.
At the request of Kilroy, O’Connor agreed to make a request for legal aid and legal advice for the McGinty family under Section 60 of the Coroners Act, 1962.
The inquest into McGinty’s death will resume on Dec. 20.
In June 2021, The Defender reported on the death of 13-year-old Jacob Clynick just three days after he received the second dose of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention declined to investigate Clynick’s death, even though the death was reported to the agency’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).
Between Dec. 14, 2020, and Nov. 11, 2022, there have been nine deaths reported to VAERS following COVID-19 vaccines among children ages 6 months to 5 years, 31 deaths reported among children 5 to 12 years old and 133 deaths among teens 12 to 18 years old.
Last month, Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo, M.D., Ph.D., recommended against mRNA COVID-19 vaccination of males ages 18 to 39 years given the results of a study that found an 84% increase in the risk of cardiac death among young adult males within 28 days of mRNA COVID-19 vaccination.
Since March, Florida has recommended against mRNA COVID-19 vaccination of healthy children and adolescents younger than 18.
