First Dose of AstraZeneca on 11/04/20
Clinical Trial in the United States, Utah
Brianne is a previously healthy preschool teacher and mother of two young children. She was so confident in the Covid Vaccines that she enrolled in the clinical trial for Astra Zeneca in the United States. Her reaction began within an hour and soon has overtaken every function in her body. She has incurred over $300,000 in medical expenses in less than one year. After 4 ER visits, 2 hospital stays, and over 56 office visits, she is still searching for answers. This search led her to the NIH to participate in research and treatment for this reaction. After being misdiagnosed with anxiety, she tested positive for neuropathy, sensory neuropathy, tinnitus, short term memory loss, and postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome. After pleading with the federal agencies for months without any substantial response, she united with more like her and co-founded react19.org, a patient advocacy organization dedicated to increasing awareness and understanding behind what is happening with these reactions. Her days that once were filled with supporting and caring for others, have now been replaced with others supporting and caring for her. She still sees the value in the Covid vaccines and has encouraged her family to get it. She also believes that adverse events should be appropriately addressed.

NOV 24, 2021 - A Cautionary Message From Vaccine Advocates w/ Dr. Aditi Bhargava, Kyle Warner, and Brianne Dressen:
NOV 21, 2021 UPDATE:
One year ago… I was admitted to the hospital.
My legs had stopped working and I had become incontinent. My chest had become so sore from the constant problems with my heart that I wrote goodbye letters to my kids, with hands that couldn’t actually write coherent letters. My vision was double, Sound was unbearable, I couldn’t brush my teeth, my chest felt like it was on fire. The internal vibrations in my brain that almost put me 6 feet under, were just getting started.
My was reaction severe enough that I was unblinded from the trial, giving the drug company the excuse to remove my data.
Because I had been in the ER the week prior. The doctors felt it unnecessary to test for GBS or Transverse Myelitis, being given only a diagnosis of… anxiety. They only ran a standard CBC during my entire hospital stay. No further testing.
My “anxiety” did not resolve on their heavy duty hospital medications. I was sent home with intensive in-home physical therapy for my legs, and occupational therapy for the horrific problems that were happening with my vision, balance, and cognitive abilities.
And that was just the beginning.
Over the past year, I have been on death’s doorstep more times than I want to remember, have fought and clawed my way back to some sort of level of function more times than I can count. Have been on the verge of financial ruin (thanks drug company), been called a liar, a fraud, anti-vax, a murderer. Have experienced gaslighting at all levels, family, medical teams, the media, the government, even from the medical journal that published the clinical trial where my data is omitted.
The hard reality is… the world simply is not what I believed it to be. I believed, and I trusted, that if I took care of those around me, that world would come back around if I needed the same.
I believed I was enlisting in the fight to protect lives. Yes I was enlisting in that fight, but in a way that I didn’t even know existed.
But, there is beauty in this story. The community of vaccine injured are the most genuine and REAL people I could have ever had the privilege of knowing. We are all marginalized, abandoned, unsure what the future holds…and all we have is each other. We have seen each other through our darkest days and have celebrated the victories, no matter how small. It is us against the world…and we all have been surrounded by an ugliness that absolutely none of us signed up for. We did not want this, in fact, we signed up for the opposite.
We have also crossed paths with incredible people. Those emerging from the shadows to help us, to support us, who see the injustice, the flaws in the narrative. Very real and genuine people. Many of whom have risked everything to stand along side us, to fight for their own rights, to fight for scientific integrity.
These people…each one is invaluable. Brought together through tragedy, we have built an incredible and irreplaceable community.
There is also beauty in regaining what was lost, which for me began one year ago. There is beauty in really truly understanding what is important and what is not. Being able to walk, to be in the same room as my kids with their little giggling voices, to be able to have my personality back, to be able to string sentences together, to be able to just hold my husband’s hand. Celebrating the fact that the pain, vibrations and constant discomfort waning.
I feel the grip of the torture of the last year finally loosening. I no longer struggle to exist each and every day. I now am able to see that time is finite and every single day is a gift, instead of a prison sentence.
I can’t see the improvement 4 weeks ago, but I can looking back 8 weeks ago. While it has been anything but linear…recovery is definitely there. It is happening. I no longer dread each day when I wake up feeling like I need to muster the strength to just survive the day.
So today…. After moment of reflection of this past year… Today I will celebrate. These days with my kids are now priceless. The victories over this new disease, over death, have been anything but easy. I can look forward to more gains this coming year, more answers, more pieces to the puzzle.
For me, the worst is over.
The darkness is giving way to a new day. It is slow, but the light will return.

Utah Scientist Testifies before FDA panel, asks not to approve COVID-19 vaccine for kids:
"Each of you hold a significant responsibility today and know that without a doubt, when you approve this for the 5-11-year-old’s, you are signing innocent kids and uninformed parents to a fate that will undoubtedly rob some of them of their life,” Brian said.
Brianne Dressen said she will not vaccinate her children because she is still suffering from side effects she said came on from being a participant in the AstraZeneca vaccine trial a year ago. (Photo: Brianne Dressen).
