68 Shirley

Shirley , aged 87 (nearly 88).
She received two doses of the Pfizer Comiraty “vaccine” – the first in June, the second in July.

At the time she was living in a residential village. It is not clear if the residents were mandated to take the “vaccines” – I do not believe they were but there was a lot of “encouragement” by the management. There was a great deal of talk amongst the residents and a great deal of peer pressure. Shirley was initially against having the “vaccines”. Her only source of “information” was mainstream news on the TV and radio but it struck her that there was “something not quite right” about the proposed “vaccine” roll out. We do not know why she changed her mind and had the first dose. She had her regular flu shot in May at her medical clinic and nearly a month later, the first Covid dose at the same clinic.

She lived in a different town to us so we were not aware that she had changed her mind. She was in excellent health and fitness aside from some issues with a long standing blood pressure problem which was resolved by adjusting her medications and some minor ailments that required check-ups at the clinic. Shirley did her own cooking and most cleaning (she had a cleaner once a week for the heavy cleaning) and did not require any assistance with personal care. She had a walker only if she was going to walk any distance and was still driving up to about a week before her death. She did her own shopping. She was independent, mobile and sociable.

Shirley was also in charge of her own health and medications. She never needed anyone to go with her to the medical clinic or the hospital and thus was making her own decisions independently. When there was some doubt or question she would ask advice.

However, the repeated lockdowns and climate of fear amongst the residents had a toll. We heard after her death that she was beginning to become unhappy with living at the village mainly because of the atmosphere – people were not so friendly or sociable as they had been. The enforced isolation which saw the residents confined to their units, forbidden even to go out for walks or chatting with neighbours was horrible. For someone who loved to go for walks and had once been a competitive table tennis player and avid gardener, this enforced isolation was very trying. Shirley did not possess a computer.

It would appear from Shirley’s diary that there was no adverse reaction or any kind of problems to the first dose of the Comirnaty “vaccine”. Life went on as normal. However, when the time came to have the second dose, she began to have very real doubts and was most reluctant to get it. She did not feel confident that she was making the right decision because she simply did not know enough about it, nor was she able to get any qualified advice. The only people she could talk to was her medical clinic, the neighbours and the family. We do not know if she spoke to the clinic. She did, however, speak to her son (my husband) but at that time he knew almost nothing about the “vaccines”. For some reason he never asked me as I was in Australia at the time taking care of my Mother (who was then 93) so I knew nothing about what Shirley was doing. I did know something about it as I had been trying to find out as much as I could from various medical sources about possible and probable side effects [I am in a high risk group for vaccine injury and adverse reaction].

My husband did not know that a week or two later, Shirley had the second dose. We only found out by accident when I returned from Australia a few days after she had it and we went to visit her. I was really shocked at the change in her – that day she was experiencing severe brain fog, appeared to be drifting in and out of consciousness and had no appetite. It was then I discovered that she had both doses.

I will not go into detail all the events at this stage but I can provide a detailed history of what happened. We called her daughter who came to stay with her that night and the next day, Shirley was transferred to the respite unit. We came back a couple of days later. The brain fog was almost gone but she had become hypothermic and was complaining of numbness in the feet, legs and hands.

One of the last things she said to us was, “The vaccine did this to me. I wish I had never done it.” And later, as we were leaving, she cried out, “I am dying”.

The next day she was in a coma from which she never came out of and died three days later in the hospital.

At the funeral we found out that the symptoms (brain fog, fatigue and loss of appetite) started a day or two after the shot. From her diary we learned that the hypothermia started soon after. She collapsed a couple of times – once in the doctor’s surgery, had very severe diarrhoea (she called the ambulance herself, was discharged later that day), a urinary tract infection and was haemorrhaging severely in one leg – never in my life have I seen bruising the size of the one I saw on her thigh. All the events were, at the time, seemingly unrelated but I now know from reading and hearing other people’s stories that this was quite common.

When she was in hospital one of her neighbour’s came over to the unit to ask after her. This neighbour was a friend of hers and always very helpful. She seemed very anxious to get it across to us that what Shirley was going through was “normal” – to be in good health and then suddenly decline – she had seen it happen many times. I wondered why at the time she kept insisting on this. I later found out from the diary that this same neighbour had accompanied Shirley to the clinic when she had the second dose.

We got to know another neighbour – a rather feisty lady who was very determined never to have the “vaccine”. She told us of the culture of bullying and shaming amongst the residents of the “vaccinated” and “ unvaccinated”. Those who held out against the “vaccines” were shamed, ostracised, shunned and excluded. And any other resident seen talking to them were treated the same way. I remember on one or two occasions going to visit this neighbour of being watched by another resident in a nearby unit.

In Shirley’s case it was peer pressure and lack of any proper information that led her to getting the “vaccine”.

After the funeral we came into possession of her diary and various medical papers she had. I created a detailed time line of the last year of her life listing her daily activities, health notes, routine doctor’s visits and every single thing we knew from the time she had the second dose.

At no point in the hospital was her vaccination status asked about. One doctor who had seen her the previous week was extremely shocked to find her in the Acute Care Ward and was going to endeavour to find out some answers. We never saw or heard from him again. She had many tests and scans in those last couple of weeks but nothing wrong could be found. Everything came up “normal”. No one asked any questions about the vaccine.

The report into her death took the hospital ten days to produce. It was written by a doctor who stated that she “had never seen Shirley alive”, never spoke to the doctor who did see her when she was alive as “the doctor was unavailable”. The death report was based on the hospital notes and tests they had done which all had negative results. They did not know about the numbness. Her primary cause of death was “She stopped breathing” and secondary cause was “frailty due to one year” – this of a woman who was still driving only a week earlier and living independently. This same doctor also stated that while there was no explanation for Shirley’s death, she considered a post mortem unnecessary.

My husband and I were going to start an enquiry and to report Shirley’s death to CARM but for a number of reasons we did not. Although my husband’s sister and brother were shocked and puzzled by Shirley’s death, they simply accepted the doctor’s report. They did not make any connection to the “vaccine”. This was also why we did not attempt to get a post mortem.

We did, however, get a copy of Shirley’s vaccination record from the medical clinic. My husband made an appointment to talk to them about this but we were forced to go back into lock down which lasted several months as we are based in Auckland.

We have not known what else to do or where to go next. Since Shirley’s death, there has not been a day go by when my husband does not think about her and what happened. He considers her to have been murdered by the “vaccine”. He has learned a great deal about them and what harms they can do and speaks out openly about them. He is a strong believer in informed consent and freedom of choice.

In my case, I did not have the “vaccine” – there is a powerful medical reason not to have it as there is a history of adverse reaction and paralysis. I had severe non-classic Bell’s Palsy many years ago (still have effects from it). I experienced a nasty injury to the influenza vaccine in 2020 that nearly paralysed my left arm and was advised by a neurologist to “never have another vaccine”. A year later, this same neurologist was demanding that I “must have the [Covid] vaccine.” When I asked, “Given the dramatically increased rate of Bell’s Palsy post Covid vaccination, what are my chances of getting paralysed again?”, her reply was, “You will be paralysed.”

Later she tried shaming and insulting me and finally banned me from entering her surgery because I refused the vaccine. I could only have a phone consultation.

Phone consultations and telehealth is a lousy way to practice medicine.

Good luck with the Submission and best regards,
