Giselle Rodriguez

First Dose of Pfizer on 05/2021

Austin, Texas

31 yrs old

Q: What was your life like before you got the vaccine?

I used to trust doctors.

Q: What was your reaction, symptoms, & timeline?

Bells Palsy for 1 hour immediately following the first dose. I went and got three opinions -a hospital nurse, a pharmacist and my family doctor. The pharmacist and nurse said not to get the second dose while the family doc told me to definitely try the second dose because it didn’t seem like a bad reaction to have at all.

Q: What is your life like now, after getting the vaccine?

Like I cannot speak about it or I’m labeled an antivaxxer, which isn’t true. I used to be a liberal and now I am a conservative.

Q: Share your experience with any medical care and any diagnoses you have received:

None - no one is taking me seriously.

Q: Was your reaction reported, and what was the response?


Q: Is there anything that has helped, and have your symptoms improved?


Q: Have you had Covid before? What was your experience if so?

Yes after the vaccine and it felt like a flu for me.

Q: What else would you like to say?

Just the trials - where are they? Why can’t we see them?

Giselle, I just want you to know you are not alone. As a fellow vaccine injured victim, I created a FB support group. If you need anything, please let me know. I hope to help as many people as I can just like us through support, resources, education, and anything else to help them through this journey with so many others that I am bringing together to support those like us. Sending prayers and hugs. Cat

I agree with the other comment about brainwashed doctors and the ignorant masses who blindly believe them and then wake-up after something bad happen; the question I ponder is how might it be possible to reach people BEFORE they harm themselves and have them take a serious eye-opening vantage on the situation aka its your body and the ramifications can be life altering so why trust an "expert" over your own interests?

Replying to

This is all we've been trying to do for two years now with little success, and we've been ostracized and ridiculed for it. So unfortunately it seems like there is no way and if people don't wake up now then it will continue to be sad to see people waking up only after they have been injured.

I personally believe the reason is largely due to the majority of people enduring no real major life-altering trauma at the hands of other people early on in life.

For those that have, we know better than to implicitly trust people merely on good faith with no good evidence. This kind of skepticism is good for building real scientific understanding too, which is…


the family doc told me to definitely try the second dose because it didn’t seem like a bad reaction to have at all.

Brainwashed arrogant doctors are a curse 😒.

Yes, when you see government/corporate systems from a different angle, it can be life changing. The same applies to friends. Question everything Giselle. I hope your condition is improving.
