Stephen Wenger

First Dose of Johnson & Johnson on 5/18/21 Lot #205A21A



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

Completely normal, I had no health issues, I worked 40-60 hours a week, we hiked, played Pickle ball 3 times a week.

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

My first symptom was heavy legs. We were in Sedona and I had to walk up a hill. My legs felt like they were cement. That was on May 25, 2021

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

I spent 98 days in the hospital, I was paralyzed from the waist down starting end of June, This eventually spread up my body until I was paralyzed from the neck down starting roughly end of July. I was paralyzed from neck down for almost 30 days. During this time I relied on the nurses to feed me, bath me, dress, help me use the toilet. I was 100% dependent on others for every aspect of my daily life. When I finally got released from hospital, I had lost a total of 65 lbs (25% of my body weight) I had lost all muscle in all my extremities. I had to start the rebuilding process from absolute zero.

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

I was finally diagnosed with CIDP, a chronic version of Guillan Barre Syndrome. This diagnosis was finally confirmed with a biopsy of the Sural nerve which had been surgically removed from my right foot.

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

July 9 - I reported it to VAERS.

July 12 the CDC announced that the J&J vaccine had been linked to increased cases of Guillan Barre Syndrome. I have never heard anything from CDC.

I also reported to CICP, Countermeasure Injury Compensation Program, also no response.

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

At the time I had been given 12 doses of IVIG which did not help, I was then given Plasmapheresis treatments which also did not help in any way, I was then given Rituximab which is a type of chemotherapy drug, in addition to the Rituximab I was given high dose IV Steroids and a IVIG twice a week.

Q: What do you wish others knew?

While this has been a horrible experience for both myself and my wife, I believe that it ultimately has made me a better person, a more understanding and patient person. I no longer let things bother me, I have learned what is really important in my life.

Dear Stephen !

Thank you for sharing your story . I am so sorry. You can read my story as a comment to Audrey and Marie under Injured Young. I , too, go paralyzed from a vaccine.

I am writing to you and your wife because you mentioned working on the Navajo Rez. I used to live there and have friends there. It pains me to see how everyone is getting jabbed. Many are dying. I cant reach people. They shun me, because they think the jabs will safe them. I am moving back up to the area and would love to start an awareness campaign in Dinetah !! Maybe you would be interested in helping ? also, Keto die…


I first saw your story on facebook. It is when I realized so many were injured and being silenced. I've shared these sites far and wide on a daily basis to help get your voices heard and to educate the unjabbed to know what may happen and let them have the choice to proceed with it or not. Hiding the side effects is so wrong on so many levels. I pray for all of you that God will put His healing hands on each and every one of you and undo the damage done and remove every toxin from your bodies and make you all whole again. May He bless you all abundantly. Amen.
