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

I have Lupus, autoimmune disorder...I do not work because of this, but I was doing very well and having minimal flare ups.

Q: Would you like to share your reasons for getting vaccinated?

Doctors told me if I got covid I would 100% be dead...they pushed me to get a vaccine asap, no matter what brand it was.

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

No major reaction with the first 2 vaccines, except severe fatigue for a few days. Booster shot...I got a headache the next day that never went away, still have it. Major Lupus flare ups. Got Covid 5 days later. Chest pains every day. Menstrual cycle is every 10 days....lasts about 5 days and then back again in 10 days. Cannot make it through a day without having to lay down.

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

Horrible. No words to describe.

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

Doctors won't admit or even entertain the possibility of it being vaccine related.

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

No, it was not reported.

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

Nothing so far has helped. I take vitamin D, C, zinc, multivitamin...symptoms have not improved.

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

Yes...I got covid 5 days after the booster and hadn't been anywhere but small town grocery store and the post office...faithfully wore a mask and sanitized everything.

Q: What do you wish others knew?

Please don't ever put this poison in your body. If I could turn back time, I would in a minute.

Hi Jodie. Thank you for sharing your story. I have just published a self funded website. As a photographer I meet with people in the Golden Horseshoe in Ontario to help tell their stories post inoculation. If you are interested please contact me through

Hey Jodie, I have an update. I have created two vax injury support groups. Facebook - (but they are coming after us and blocking & banning us every chance they get)

I am working with TrialSite News and we have created an UNCENSORED Vax Injury Support Group It is in its infant stages, but we are working on it to be a place for support, resources, information, health professionals and so much more. I would love you to come over, check it out, and join. Sending prayers and hugs to you and keep your chin up! 😊

Jodie, 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

My brother worked at the Mayo Clinic doing heart transplants and valve replacements for 25+ years. He told me the vaccine is poison..
