Pfizer dose 1: Dec 2021
I am Henry a 49 year old male from Auckland. I received my first Pfizer vaccine against COVID-19 in September 2021 as it became mandated by Government, business suppliers in the industry and my employer – resulting my basic rights being infringed upon unless I get vaccinated.
Shortly thereafter (approximately 10 days) I started getting blind in one eye on a regular basis, I told my health care provider and an appointment was made at the eye clinic at the end of January 2022 (I had my second shot in December ’21). On the 26th of the same month, 2 days before the appointment I had a full blown stroke and another on 28 January 2022. Because I reacted too slowly with the first stroke I did not qualify for tPA, on the second stroke they purposely withheld my blood pressure medicine in hospital resulting in my blood pressure being too high, I did not qualify for tPA again. In addition to that, I was given a statin in hospital as protocol but that resulted in Myopathy and they had to cease it immediately. As result I was sent home as rehabilitation was not possible at the time.
Looking back at the chain of events I realise that I had multiple TIA’s and was referred to an eye specialist and not to neurology. At the time I think I was medically gaslighted as result of the fear for Dr’s speaking out against the vaccine. This is not surprising as not vaccinated individuals and/or someone speaking out about known side effects were victimised.
The reason for my late submission is as result of incapacity due to the posterior circulation stroke – This letter took me weeks to write. As a matter of fact, I was able to apply to WINS for financial assistance in February 2023 but I am still waiting to hear back. Financially I am ruined and every day I have to borrow money just to eat and to keep a roof over my head.
I have not applied with ACC or notify CARM as yet but that will be my next steps.
