People who have been harmed by COVID-19 shots have suffered a range of medical issues — everything from death and permanent disability to pericarditis, nerve damage and overwhelming fatigue. Although their symptoms may vary, there are some common themes.
- Abandonment — Those injured by COVID-19 jabs have been largely abandoned by the mainstream medical community and government.
- Shame — Those who spoke out about their injuries have been shamed, ridiculed and labeled unethical; their medical issues have been politicized, while society provides no empathy.
- Hopelessness — With no programs in place to help those injured by COVID-19 shots, and many doctors afraid to even acknowledge the shot’s connection to patients’ symptoms, many of those harmed feel lost and don’t know where to turn for help.
Bringing attention to the issue — and to the people whose lives have changed drastically since receiving a COVID-19 shot — is the first step to recovery. The documentary “Anecdotals”, which focuses on the lives of those who have experienced severe adverse reactions to COVID-19 shots, does exactly that.1
Many of their stories have been dismissed as irrelevant by others. They’re only anecdotes after all. As you will see, these stories need to be told, not only so that they can get the medical care they require, but also so that society is aware of the true risks of COVID-19 shots which have been censored and covered up.
The Trials: Secrets from the Trials
Maddie de Garay is one example. She was a healthy 12-year old when she signed up to Pfizer’s COVID-19 trial, which was for 12- and 15-year-olds. However, she suffered a severe systemic adverse response to her second shot and had to endure 11 ER visits as well as four hospital admissions over the following year.
Injuries from the shot have left her unable to walk or eat — she receives her nutrition via a feeding tube — and suffering from constant pain, vision problems, tinnitus, allergic reactions and lack of neck control.2
Maddie and her loved ones were constantly dismissed by the medical professionals that were put in place to assist them. They were also ignored by U.S. Food and Drug Administration and denied Maddie the needed care. Maddie’s mother Stephanie stated at a hearing that the trial had been set up in a way that was unacceptable.3
Participants were given the TrialMax app access to track side effects (e.g. a swollen arm). However, de Garay was not surprised by the format. There wasn’t enough space to leave open-ended comments. Instead, there were only questions with answers that could be answered by “yes” and “no”. Check boxes can also be used to indicate predetermined effects.4She said:5
“I wanted to give everyone a better understanding of the trial because I didn’t know that when you enter it, everybody uses a trial application. The app only allows you to record solicited adverse events — fever, redness, mild, moderate.
You can’t just fill out any other reactions you may have. You must notify the principal investigator if you experience any adverse events. This leaves plenty of room for error and concerns about reporting bias from the principal investigator.
Pfizer’s April 2021 disclosure to the FDA of Maddie’s case, it stated only that she suffered from abdominal pain.6
“One participant had an SAE.” [serious adverse event]Reports included generalized neuralgia and 3 concurrent non-serious AEs. (Abdominal pain, abscess or gastritis), and 1 concurrent SAE. (Constipation) all occurred within the same week. Functional abdominal pain was finally diagnosed. At the cutoff date, the event was still ongoing.
Maddie was then diagnosed with functional neurological disorder. This happened just a day after Pfizer had submitted an emergency approval request for the COVID-19 shot.7In the film, her mother noted:8
Maddie suffered over 35 adverse events due to the trial data. None of these were mentioned … Maddie was in the hospital when the EUA [emergency use authorization]Approved. Maddie was in the best possible hands in the rare event of a severe reaction. However, this was not the case. They tried to conceal everything. We were never contacted by Pfizer or FDA.
Pfizer Trial: “Like Nothing I Have Ever Seen”
While the health agencies are continuing to assure the public that COVID-19 shots were safe, those who worked closely on the trials had an entirely different perspective. Brooke Jackson, a former regional director at Ventavia Research Group (Pfizer), said in the film that she was part of Pfizer’s COVID-19 trial.9“What I saw was nothing like anything I’ve seen before.”
She witnessed unblinded patients, falsified data, insufficiently trained vaccinators, and a lack proper follow up on reported adverse events. After notifying Ventavia about her concerns repeatedly, she made a complaint to the FDA directly — and was fired the same day.10 In her words:11
“The speed in which they were enrolling in the study — four to five coordinators pushing through 40, 50, 60 patients a day. We didn’t keep the vaccine at the correct temperature, and we failed to report serious adverse reactions. We had so many reports of adverse events … we just could not keep up. The study doctor signed an exam form even though he was not in the clinic.
Ventavia unblinded all the patients that were randomly assigned to participate in the trial. When we brought it to their attention, that’s what we were instructed to do — remove the evidence and destroy it. We should have stopped enrolling in Pfizer’s programs immediately after receiving emails about mislabeled blood samples. However, they never told Pfizer.
I would raise concerns with my managers. They replied, “We are understaffed.” They only see what Pfizer has to offer them. So I began documenting this. And then, on September 25, I went to the FDA. I was fired about six hours later. I was fired.”
Pfizer and the FDA attempted to conceal the COVID-19-shot clinical trial data for 75 more years. But the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas compelled the FDA to release the redacted trial documents in a much quicker time frame. The court order required that the FDA approve Pfizer’s COVID-19 shot. 80,000 pages of documents were released as part of the court order.12
Among those documents were case report forms (CRFs) revealing that deaths and severe adverse events took place during Phase 3 trials, but, as reported by Children’s Health Defense, Pfizer had “a trend of classifying almost all adverse events — and in particular severe adverse events (SAEs) — as being ‘not related’ to the vaccine.”13Naomi Wolf, journalist:14
“We’ve got these amazing 2,500 volunteers — highly credentialed medical researchers, doctors and nurses — pouring over these 55,000 documents that a court order forced Pfizer and the FDA to release.
Well, they’re finding that there were horrible harms — deaths, spontaneous abortions, neurological problems, fainting, heart damage, debilitating muscle pain, debilitating joint pain — that were concealed by Pfizer and the FDA from the American people.”
Adverse Reactions — Real, Not Rare
Film details the adverse reactions that have taken away independence, careers and the ability of many people to function normally in everyday life. After being shot, Dr. Joel Wallskog (an ex-orthopedic surgeon) shared his story.15
After this adverse reaction, my life was drastically changed. My 19 year career, for which I trained for almost 14 years, is now likely over. I am not able to continue my career as an orthopedic surgeon. I was assuming that the FDA and CDC would be alarmed by my diagnosis. I expected to hear back soon after my VAERS. [Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System] submission. No phone call, no contact.”
Kellai Rodriguez shared her struggles since she received a COVID-19 shot.16
“I lost the ability to speak naturally. I am unable to walk without a walker and don’t know when or if the tremors will return. My body can’t handle too much of anything, including cooking, cleaning, or holding my baby, without it shaking violently or causing me to feel extreme pain.
I have seen countless ER doctors and two neurologists. They gave me no diagnosis or further testing, apart from regular bloodwork, CT scans. ECGs. EKGs. An MRI was also ordered. All of these tests were normal.
Many were able to come together at a rally for victims of the shots and share their experiences with each other, sharing striking similarities. Many were left unable to walk after the shots, and many experienced tremors. The nurses at the hospital reported that patients had similar symptoms to theirs, but doctors refused the labeling of the shot-related conditions. Jennifer Bridges, a former Houston Methodist Hospital nurse, was fired because she didn’t get the shot.17
“I’ve seen emails, where hospitals threatened their doctors — you cannot sign medical exemptions, you cannot talk about, you cannot report adverse reactions to these vaccines. If someone was brave enough to put it in writing, there were others higher up who could erase them. I have the proof and the people who have shown me these things.
Stories silenced and censured
Shot mandates left those who were injured by the shots unaddressed. Jennifer Sharp, the film’s director, was one of those who experienced debilitating effects after the shot. These included facial numbness and electric shock-like sensations as well as muscle weakness. After experiencing serious adverse reactions, Sharp decided not to get another dose and ended up losing her job.18
“In January 2022, my job was lost because I was not vaccinated. A VAX card showed one shot. I also had a blood test that confirmed I had antibodies. I was exempted by my doctor. I was open to getting tested every day. They didn’t even care. I was unable to go to restaurants or gyms, malls, or events.
Los Angeles had an anti-mandate rally. I went along to show solidarity for those who suddenly found themselves socially excluded because they did what the government wanted. Is it possible to have compassion on someone losing their livelihoods even if your stance is fundamentally different from another’s?
However, the victims were not allowed to talk about their experiences and were silenced. One victim shared her experience with the shots:19
“We are being so censored we can’t even get the message out that it’s even beingcensored. Because if it’s through Social Media, they’re one of the platforms that’s censoring us. And even if it’s not outwardly, we’re being shadow banned …
You could share it, but no one acknowledges it. You might think, “Oh, I am isolated, I’m all alone,” but they aren’t likely to see it. It’s either been moved to the bottom or removed entirely. It’s impossible to share on social media about a vaccination reaction without it being censored.
Sharp made a pitch video for “Anecdotals”, which she then shared on Vimeo privately. It was her reaction to the shot, and how she felt compassion. It was removed due to misinformation. They stated that they wouldn’t allow content which is contrary to the CDC recommendations. She said that she was not permitted to tell her own story.20
Suicides due to COVID-19 Shot Reactions
Brianne Dressen, cofounder and CEO of React10, an organization that offers financial and support services to COVID-19 shot victims, described several suicides from victims who suffered from electroshocks, neuropathy and tinnitus. Due to the adverse effects she experienced during the AstraZeneca trial, Dressen considered suicide.21
“I don’t believe people realise how debilitating these symptoms can be. My husband wouldn’t let me go for many months. He’d leave his house, but he wasn’t sure if he would return to his wife. He was afraid every minute of every day and this fear seeps into the lives our kids.
Six months ago, I wasn’t mom. I wasn’t a human. I was going to drive down the road to the lake. I was going to carbon-monoxide my car. And I was going to put AstraZeneca done this on a sign for the window. But I was too sick to do that. The only reason I am alive is that I was too sick for it. Let me close with a letter from Bree, a friend.
“I cannot accept this anymore. This has taken my career, family, and life away. My body will not stop attacking me. This is beyond torture. My apologies. I must say goodbye to this world. Please let the world know about the cruelty we have been subjected to. My dear friend. I will be seeing you on the reverse side.
Rochelle Walensky. Janet Woodcock. Peter Marks. Anthony Fauci. You can’t bring my friends back. However, you can save other people from their fate. You can save others’ fate if you tell the truth.
The film encourages open dialogue, a movement of humanity to ask difficult questions and to acknowledge those suffering from COVID-19 shots. Sharp said, “We need to be seen and believed in order to be helped.” Although our stories are anecdotal in nature, they can be very useful data. In a world where science is constantly changing, studies are flawed, and politics regulate, anecdotes may prove to be the most reliable. Yes, we are anecdotal. These are our stories.22
