Dawn Slykhuis, a 39-year-old emergency response worker, has been told she is due to receive her second dose of COVID-19 vaccine, although she is still experiencing side effects after dose number one.
Slykhuis, who tested positive for COVID-19 in 2020, received his first injection in April 2021.
“I waited a full six months to make sure I wasn’t going to have a reaction,” Slykhuis told the Western standard.
“I received the dose on April 28, then on May 18 I felt a sharp, sharp pain in my head, like someone was throwing lasers into my brain.”
Slykhuis said the pain lasted for about a week before settling into a more chronic dull ache, and so – fearing the possibility of cancer – she saw a doctor amid a relentless spate of headaches which coincided with a sporadically elevated heart rate.
“They expected nerve damage,” said Slykhuis, who began to lose sensation in his left arm.
“There was so much tingling yesterday that I had to have a CT. I’m waiting to see a neurologist on November 8th.
Dr Steven Pelech, President and Scientific Director of Kinexus Bioinformatics Company, and chairman of the scientific and medical advisory committee of the Canadian Covid Care Alliance, expressed concern about the potential health risks COVID-19 vaccines could impose – particularly myocarditis.
“Contrary to what a number of people have said, there is no such thing as ‘mild myocarditis’,” Pelech told the Western standard in an interview in August.
“It’s the destruction of myocytes, the heart cells that contract. When these cells die, they are not replaced in your body and are replaced by scar tissue, which comes from fibroblasts – skin cells that do not have contractile activity, so the remaining muscle cells must become a little bigger to compensate. “
Dr Charles Hoffe, a physician who practiced in Lytton, British Columbia for more than 20 years, raised concerns similar to Pelech’s, and he reported that patients were suffering severe neurological and cardiovascular effects after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine.
“It is now clearly evident, with medical evidence from around the world, that the side effect profiles of various gene modification therapies against COVID-19 have been grossly underestimated by their manufacturers, who were keen to prove their safety.” , wrote Hoffe. in an open letter to Dr. Bonnie Henry, BC Provincial Health Officer.
The Interior Health Authority (IHA) has suspended Hoffe’s privileges in emergency rooms and he is currently under investigation by the IHA and the College of Physicians and Surgeons of BC (CPBC) for encouraging “Reluctance to vaccinate”.
Hoffe is represented by the Justice Center for Constitutional Freedoms (JCCF).
Several European countries have suspended the use of the Moderna vaccine for people under the age of 30, citing inflammation of the heart as well as inflammation of the membrane surrounding the heart.
Iceland has stopped the Moderna vaccine for all ages.
“I’m a healthy 39 year old man who has never had nerve damage and all of a sudden I have chronic headaches, nerve damage and I also have cognitive deficits which is really hard to say because now I want to cry, ”said Slykhuis.
“I’m like an old lady who sees my brain go blank. Make mistakes, drop things. It’s pretty scary, well, it’s terrifying… to experience these symptoms and still have to take another dose to keep my healthcare job.
