Leigh-Ann Dale, Business Owner

First Dose of Pfizer on 05/03/21 Lot #EY4825

Saskatoon, Saskatchewan Canada

UPDATE 12-09-2022:


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

I was a normal 43 mother of 2 teen boys. I own 2 businesses - an electrical contracting company and a small cookie business.

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

I had just spend days in the hospital with my 18 year old son (May 19 & 20th) He was diagnosed with bilateral pulmonary embolisms and an infarction in his left lung from his J&J vaccine. 6 days later, May 26th, the back of my left leg was so sore I couldn’t walk on it. My son dropped me off at the emergency room where I had blood taken and my D Dimer was 101630. (Normal is 0-500) I had a Doppler ultrasound and they found a 2.5 FOOT long DVT (blood clot) in my left leg. I was taken by ambulance to another hospital to have it removed surgically. They did a contrast CT at the next hospital and found pulmonary embolisms. Which stopped the surgery. I spent a week in the hospital on a heparin drip and 7 days after on tinzaperin injections. I am now on blood thinners for life. I was back in the hospital a week later with a massive soft tissue infection in my arm, armpit, breast and side. My symptoms started 19 days after vaccination. But I was so distracted by my son, I didn’t have it treated until a week later.

Q: What was your life like after getting the vaccine?

Since then I have been hospitalized for menstrual hemorrhage twice. I now have to possibly have a hysterectomy. I have lost all revenue from my cookie business and am unable to work for any length of time doing the books for our electrical business. I have an echocardiogram, holter monitor, cardiology appointment, vascular surgery appointment, hematology appointment and have been referred to urology for a kidney issue. I live broken physically and mentally everyday.

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

No one in the hospitals care about what happens to you if you don’t have covid. Not one of the Dr’s treating me in hospital reported my injury.

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

I have since reported to Saskatchewan Health where a local Medical Health Officer denied my claim due to my sons injury and “suspected previous undiagnosed blood disorder”. My hematologist is looking into appealing this decision. I reported to Pfizer, which is obligated to report to Health Canada. No response. I can not apply for compensation because of the MHO denial of my initial claim in June.

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

Nothing has helped. I am in worse shape now (November) than I was in June. My body is constantly attacking itself.

Q: What do you wish others knew?

I wish they had true, informed consent.
