Lisa Collins, Healthcare Worker

First Dose of Moderna on 7/16/21


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

A healthcare worker! Enjoyed taking my daughter to barrel races!

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

I went blind in right eye. The other eye is blurry. I have FND seizures and blackouts. I also have speech problems.

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

Horrible! I can’t enjoy my life! I can’t drive due to the blindness and seizures. I am in a wheelchair, and use a walker because of my falls and blackouts. I get bad headaches, as well as numbness in legs and hands. I can’t enjoy my family like a regular person can!

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

Nothing works!

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

Reported to Moderna, CICP and CDC with no response.

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

Nothing has helped, and there is no improvement.

Q: What do you wish others knew?

I wish they knew not to get the V.
