On December 11, 2020, the Food and Drug Administration authorized the first COVID-19 vaccine made by Pfizer-BioNTech.
What followed was the largest and most effective psychological heist in the history of humankind. A coalition of governments, pharmaceutical companies and media cajoled, convinced and coerced the world’s citizens to get injected with the vaccine, despite warning signs from scientists and physicians.
Some took the shots because they believed what they were told. Those who didn’t were threatened and forced until they did.
While the coalition profited from every injection, the shots have injured countless people irreparably and destroyed the lives they knew.
The media will not give voice to these injured, whose ranks grow daily.
Here we share some of their stories.
33-year-old Neguine Netash loves music. She composes it, she teaches it, and she heals with it. But even music can’t seem to heal Neguine after getting the second Pfizer shot on April 17, 2021.
While her gut told her something might be off with the Pfizer injections, online articles convinced her that getting the shot would allow her to recover from long COVID quicker.
Neguine felt mildly ill after the first shot but recovered quickly. Within the first 15 minutes of the second shot, however, she felt a “sinking feeling” in her heart followed by butterflies. Thinking it was anxiety, she took a Lorazepam.
But the reactions never stopped.
“About a week to 10 days later I had all sorts of issues from really bad palpitations, lightheadedness, dizziness, to shortness of breath, confusion, POTS symptoms, chest pains, arrhythmia, premature ventricular beats, feeling like I was having a heart attack or stroke many times, pulsing or feeling my heartbeat in my back, throughout my whole body, major fatigue, acid reflux, indigestion, adrenaline surges, crazy blood pressure spikes, burning in my veins and limbs, calf and muscle pains, horrible skin rashes, tinnitus,” Neguine told RealNotRare.
Some of these lasted for 6-7 months, and about 2-3 months later Neguine was hit with a slew of painful neurological reactions, from insomnia to memory loss and even stroke-like symptoms.
One year later, Neugine says she still has many of these symptoms.
“Every day is unknown,” she says. “I wake up not knowing what other symptoms I will experience next.”
Neguine’s life is now a nightmare.
“It is a living nightmare. I never imagined going downhill like this. I thought I was going to get better. I practically live in the clinic or hospitals. I wish I knew what these debilitating side effects would be. I would have never gone near those vaccines if I had known.”
Neguine says her doctors keep telling her it’s stress and that they “do not believe in vaccine injuries.”
Jeremy Wheten is a 26-year-old steel plant production worker from Ontario who is passionate about welding, football (playing and coaching), musical theater and his three dogs and girlfriend who live with him. Jeremy also has manageable Tourette’s Syndrome.
In the summer of 2021, Jeremy’s employer notified him he would only be allowed to continue working if he got the shot.
“I was forced to choose between getting a [vaccine] with no long-term studies to indicate whether it was safe for someone with a complex neurological condition such as mine, or losing my entire livelihood and everything I have spent my life working for,” says Jeremy.
He got the second shot on July 23, 2021.
Within 72 hours of the injection, Jeremy began having violent, uncontrollable outbursts of tics that lasted for longer periods of time.
Some tics contort his face so that he frightens people in public and some tics throw his body into such convulsions that he can no longer sit next to walls for fear of injuring himself.
Jeremy estimates that about 50%-75% of his day is spent suffering tics, each of which now lasts for 10 seconds to one minute.
“A year ago I was able to drive, work, participate in musical theatre productions, socialize, grocery shop, do almost anything freely without my Tourette's holding me back,” Jeremy shares. “Now I am forced to actively avoid socializing. Being in public is a dehumanizing experience.”
“I currently as I am have no hope of keeping a full-time job long term, sustaining my home and my family, or every [sic] achieve my career or personal goals,” he added. “There is mentally no quality of life for me as long as I continue to have no control over my body, my face, or my voice.”
Julianna Mastrantonio was a full-time college student and part-time pharmacy technician. She exercised daily and enjoyed time with her boyfriend.
“Life before the vaccine was great,” said the 18-year-old in an interview with RealNotRare.
But all that changed when Julianna got the second dose of Pfizer’s injection.
Within one week of the shot, she developed pelvic pain that drove her to the hospital for pain management, where she was admitted for four days.
Just four days after being discharged, Julianna felt tremors through her body before going to bed. When she woke up, she was paralyzed from the waist down. By the time she reached the hospital, her lower body was also in excruciating pain. Her upper body was twitching uncontrollably and her heart rate was 135.
This time, Julianna was admitted for two weeks while the doctors ran tests.
She has since regained some movement back in her legs, but she is unable to walk more than 100 feet without collapsing.
“My life now is pretty non-existent other than doctor appointments,” she says. “Luckily my family and boyfriend have stuck by me, but I feel very secluded. I never feel well enough to do anything.”
The doctors seem divided in their diagnoses. Julianna’s neurologist pegged it as conversion disorder. Her infectious disease doctor told her he had seen this reaction in another patient of his who was in Pfizer’s vaccine trial but offered no cure.
She reported her reaction to VAERS and to Pfizer, who sent her two questionnaires.
“I just wish people knew the real risks,” says Julianna. “Being told the benefits outweigh the risks is far from accurate.”
