Today we were contacted by Alan Steele, who at 54 years of age now can’t work due to his confirmed vaccine illness. Below he shares his story in his words.
THE DELIBERATION. THE DECISION. THE OUTCOME.
MODERNA AND ITS KNOWN SIDE EFFECTS
HOW THIS AFFECTED ME AND MY FAMILY
Let me state a few things from the outset.
I am in no way an anti-vaxxer.
I was vax hesitant
This is a true story
I have no reason to create a false account of my experience
I realise there are people in worse and tragic situations than the one I find myself in
I am a real person
I was fit and healthy before this
This experience is true for too many people
Hi my name is Alan Steele 54 from Shell Cove in NSW Australia and this is my true Vaccine Related injury story
Leading up to September 23rd 2012, my wife and I had many discussions about whether we would have the vaccine.
The number of covid cases in our area was very low, so we felt very safe in our community.
We decided as a family to have minimal contact with people so that our risk of contracting covid was very low.
As time went by, it became more apparent that we would have to get vaccinated. One: because my wife works within the community sector and has to do face-to-face meetings with the general public. Secondly: the thought of one of our family members bring covid into our household and possibly infecting each other was a terrible scenario.
So, we looked at all the Data in regard to the possible side effects from the different vaccines. We wanted to get the Pfizer vaccine because it seemed safe, but it wasn’t readily available. Then a phone call to my local pharmacy and I found out they just go a shipment of Moderna.
Two days later, we all went in and got our Moderna shots. We all felt fine. My wife had a sore arm, but that was it. I even called a mate of mine and talked him into getting the Moderna shot.
Then six days later. Chest pains, dizziness, short of breath and high blood pressure 195/125.
I went to my doctor; he told me to go straight to the hospital, so I did.
Long story short: After 3 hospital presentations, because I thought I was going to have a heart attack, and countless blood test, scans, X-rays and stress tests, my condition, as I know it now, was not diagnosed.
Looking back over my discharge notes, I could see the doctors thought they were dealing with a hypertension patient.
This went on for 2 1/2 weeks until I finally got a proper diagnosis from my cardiologist. VACCINE RELATED MYOCARDITIS.
I didn’t even know what myocarditis was until my wife pointed out, just before my last hospital visit, that I had all the symptoms. I asked the doctor, during this last visit to hospital, if he thinks that I had vaccine related myocarditis. He said that it was unlikely because I had underlying health problems.
I know my body better than anyone. I’ve had high blood pressure since the early 90s. I’ve never been short of breath when resting. I’ve never experienced heart pain, shortness of breath and dizziness, ever.
Ok, so where does this leave me?
Well, I can’t work. I can’t walk up my stairs without being out of breath. Because I can’t work, I have no income and people in my situation do not qualify for any emergency payment. The government have a PROPOSED COVID-19 vaccine claims scheme. Proposed!
The criteria to be eligible for this proposed scheme are, and I quote:
For claims between $5000 and $20000, claimants need to have been hospitalised for at least one night, will need to nominate they are seeking less than $20000 and provide applicable evidence of:
- the nature of the injury and medical documentation of its likely relationship to a COVID-19 vaccination.
- hospitalisation, due to a vaccine related injury
- medical costs,
- lost wages
So, you might get support if your doctor will state that the injury is linked to the vaccine and if you spent one night in hospital.
I see a few issues.
I think doctors are very reluctant to formally make a link.
I was in and out of hospital 3 times. Twice I was there for around 5 hours, and I did go to the hospital on the last visit at 9pm on the 16th of October and was discharged from the ER the next morning but was I formally admitted?
People like myself are being thrown onto the scrap heap. No income. No assistance. Just the hope of a proposed claims scheme that you may not even qualify for.
I have questions:
How long until I recover from this Myocarditis? Weeks or months?
How long can I last without an income because I can’t work?
What will be the long-term damage to my health?
The way I see it:
People need immediate financial help.
Why wouldn’t a formal diagnosis from a cardiologist be enough to qualify.
If the hospital didn’t or wouldn’t admit you for an overnight stay, you won’t qualify.
I hope my story can bring a thought to those in a position to make a difference.
