Former Australian Member of Parliament Dr. Kerryn Phelps revealed she and her partner suffered serious and ongoing injuries from a COVID-19 vaccine and suggested that the actual number of adverse events associated with the shots is far higher than what the official data show.
Phelps said that her partner allegedly “suffered a severe neurological reaction” just minutes after receiving a Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine dose that included “burning face and gums, paraesethesiae, and numb hands and feet, while under observation by myself, another doctor and a registered nurse at the time of immunization,” according to news.com.au.
“I continue to observe the devastating effects a year-and-a-half later with the addition of fatigue and additional neurological symptoms including nerve pains, altered sense of smell, visual disturbance and musculoskeletal inflammation,” she claimed. “The diagnosis and causation has been confirmed by several specialists who have told me that they have seen ‘a lot’ of patients in a similar situation.”
Phelps said that she, too, suffered a vaccine-related injury after receiving her second Pfizer dose in July 2021.
“I have had CT pulmonary angiogram, ECG, blood tests, cardiac echogram, transthoracic cardiac stress echo, Holter monitor, blood pressure monitoring and autonomic testing,” the doctor said. “In my case the injury resulted in dysautonomia with intermittent fevers and cardiovascular implications including breathlessness, inappropriate sinus tachycardia and blood pressure fluctuations.”
Before getting the shot, Phelps said she “did a lot of homework before having the vaccine, particularly about choice of vaccine at the time,” according to reports. “In asking about adverse side effects, we were told that ‘the worst thing that could happen would be anaphylaxis’ and that severe reactions such as myocarditis and pericarditis were ‘rare.’”
Both the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Australian government’s Therapeutic Goods Administration say that COVID-19 vaccines are the most effective way to reduce deaths and hospitalizations from the virus. They said that the vaccines may cause some side effects, including headache, muscle pain, fever, and chills, although more and more studies have shown that there is an elevated risk of myocarditis and pericarditis following vaccination, namely among younger people.
When Phelps reported the vaccine-related injuries to the Therapeutic Goods Administration, the agency “never followed up,” she said.
The doctor, meanwhile, said she spoke with other medical practitioners “who have themselves experienced a serious and persistent adverse event” but that “vaccine injury is a subject that few in the medical profession have wanted to talk about.”
“Regulators of the medical profession have censored public discussion about adverse events following immunization, with threats to doctors not to make any public statements about anything that ‘might undermine the government’s vaccine rollout’ or risk suspension or loss of their registration,” Phelps said.
Several weeks ago, it was estimated that the Australian government could be paying up to $49.35 million (AU $77 million) in vaccine injury claims over the next year. So far, the government has paid out $937,000 after several hundred applications were accepted under Australia’s COVID-19 Vaccine Claims Scheme, budget numbers revealed.
“We’ve had just under 350 inquiries about adverse outcomes, and they have been extremely varied, but most of them have a condition that has some ongoing impact. Not many seem to fit within the criteria of the six categories,” personal injury lawyer Clare Eves told The Epoch Times in October.
In the United States, reports of vaccine-related injuries prompted some officials, namely Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, to call for investigations.
“And so we did a study in Florida and we saw an 86 percent increase in [problems in]cardiac-related activity from people 18 to 39 from mRNA shots. And so we’re going to be doing some stuff to bring accountability there,” DeSantis said at a recent event.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), as of Dec. 2, 2022, some 906,544 adverse events were reported regarding all approved COVID-19 vaccines in the United States, including 15,584 deaths. Reports filed to VAERS do not prove causation and are not verified.
