Another injury case after COVID-19 vaccine injection has been reported in Nashville, Tennessee.
Brandy Parker-McFadden, a mother of three, received her second Pfizer COVID-19 shot on April 16. Her legs began to feel strange a few hours later, and the pain began to escalate.
“It turned into a horrible neck pain, and it just kept getting worse and worse,” Brandy recalled.
Her husband James realized something was terribly wrong.“She was screaming in pain. She is one that is pretty stoic. That’s what created the sense of urgency,” he said, reports WKRN.
Brandy’s husband urged her to go to Vanderbilt Emergency Department, and then he was horrified at what happened next.
“I woke up. I can’t move my arms. I can’t move my legs. So, he’s freaking out. The doctors are panicking,” Brandy recalled.
Brandy was able to raise her arms and wiggle her toes again ten days later. She will now undergo intensive physical therapy in expectation of regaining her ability to walk.
Pfizer issued a statement to WKRN regarding what happened to Brandy.
“We take adverse events that are potentially associated with our COVID-19 vaccine, BNT162b2, very seriously. We closely monitor all such events and collect relevant information to share with global regulatory authorities. At this time, our ongoing review has not identified any safety signals with paralysis and the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine.
To date, more than 200* million people around the world have been vaccinated with our vaccine. It is important to note that serious adverse events that are unrelated to the vaccine are unfortunately likely to occur at a similar rate as they would in the general population.”
Brandy who is epileptic has turned her epilepsy diagnosis into a non-profit organization called My Epilepsy Story.
“I’m going to fight,” said Brandy. “I’m a fighter,” Brandy repeated, showing her determination.
Over 230 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine were administered in the United States from December 14, 2020, to April 26, 2021. During the period, 3,848 people have died, and 118,902 adverse reactions have been reported in the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Health Impact News reported.
Children’s deaths are now being recorded as a result of COVID-19 vaccinations. At least five children have died due to the vaccine injections, including a 5-month-old baby who was not injected but was breastfed by her mother.
