What was your life like before you received the COVID-19 vaccine?

My husband, Richard, was beginning to enjoy retirement at age 69. He had just had has annual wellness exam and everything was good, no risk factors.

Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.

My husband Richard got transverse myelitis from the Moderna vaccine. About two weeks after receiving the Moderna vaccine, Richard began having difficulty urinating. In the early hours of the next day, he spiked a fever, passed out, and fell. We took him to the ER, but they said it was probably just a virus. Over the next 2 days, he couldn’t urinate. We went to another ER, where they drained his bladder and sent him home with a catheter. Later that day, he lost feeling in his left leg; by the next morning he was paralyzed from mid-chest down. So, in 4 days, he went from healthy to paraplegic from transverse myelitis. He spent a week in hospital and 3 weeks in inpatient rehab, then came home. After a few weeks, he regained sensation down to his waist, but from waist down he still remains paralyzed. After 2 years of therapy and hard work, he has some mobility using a walker or walking poles. If we had known how risky the vaccine was, he may never have gotten it. We feel deceived and betrayed and helpless. We reported his TM to VAERS and Moderna, with no response. We filed a CICP claim, but have had no response.

Don’t trust the government or pharmaceutical companies about the vaccines. Don’t get the vaccine if you can avoid it.
