A 43-year-old father of seven children in Mississippi was left unable to speak and paralyzed on one side of his body three hours after being inoculated with the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine, his family says.
Article by Joe Kovacs from WND.
On a Facebook page to help pay for the medical costs of Brad Malagarie of St. Martin, Mississippi, the man’s family says he suffered a stroke Tuesday caused by a blood clot in his left middle cerebral artery shortly after getting the single-dose shot.
The healthy man got the shot at midday, then returned to work, and within three hours, his coworkers saw him unresponsive at his desk.
“They called me and said he had that vaccine and something is wrong, we think it’s a stroke,” Celeste Foster O’Keefe, Malagarie’s aunt, told WLOX-TV.
“He’s a young, healthy 43-year-old, and I immediately thought it, and I said be sure to tell the doctors he took that J&J vaccine and that, to me, is what caused his stroke.”
“He can’t talk now and he can’t walk. He’s paralyzed on the right side. He knows who we are and he will just cry when he sees us.”
“At least we want him to be able to communicate, to be able to walk and talk again, even if it’s not perfect.”
The revelation came the same day U.S. health officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Food and Drug Administration recommended a pause in Johnson and Johnson shots after six women developed serious, blood clots out of 7.2 million vaccinations. The figure of six has since been updated to nine, with two people suffering clots during clinical trials and seven after the vaccine was granted formal approval for emergency use.
On Saturday, O’Keefe provided an update on Facebook, saying, “Brad Malagarie is still in a challenging situation unable to walk, talk and is still paralyzed on the right side. He does still have a blood clot, in his brain, at the Middle Left Cerebral Artery,” adding he’s to be transported Monday from New Orleans to The Shepard Center in Atlanta.
“He will have to learn all of the skills we are accustomed to doing without a thought. They will work on his speech, walking and all activities of daily life.”
“We have discovered that hospitals, even though required by law, have not always reported [adverse reactions] to the VAERS SYSTEM. Please let anyone you know that they can submit the data for themselves!”
She was referring to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System co-managed by the CDC and FDA to collect information on adverse effects from vaccines.
The Mississippi State Department of Health released a statement upon learning of Malagarie’s condition, saying it was “saddened to hear about the recent illness of Mr. Malagarie and wishes him well. The Agency is certainly investigating the situation. It is difficult, if not impossible, to assign a cause and effect at this time. It is important to note that strokes are not associated with this vaccine – instead a rare clotting syndrome has been identified. Further, adverse reaction has been between cited between six and 13 days after the vaccine was administered. Of the six noted cases, all are women between the age of 18 and 38. Yesterday, the Mississippi State Department of Health paused all administration of the J and J vaccine until further guidance from the FDA.”
One Sick Day Proves We Need More Voices in Truthful Media
On October 19, I was sick. It crossed my mind that I had finally gotten the ‘rona, but my wife’s cream of chicken soup and a few extra hours of sleep into mid-afternoon had be back up and running after a sleepless night before.
When I finally stumbled over to my computer in the evening, I was met with a deluge of concern from readers. They asked what had happened as only one article had been posted that day. Generally, we post between 10-20 daily between all of the sites, not included curated and aggregated content. Seeing that we’d only posted my super-early morning article before taking the rest of the day off had readers assuming the worst.
We have a wonderful and talented group of writers who volunteer their time for the sites and their readers. Sharing their amazing perspectives has always been a blessing to us because we cannot afford to hire anyone at this time. But having great writers is meaningless if we don’t have great editors, or at least one additional. My wife helps me read and edit stories from time to time, but I’m a one-man show when it comes to getting the stories posted.
Whenever I highlight our desperate need for donations, I note that we do not receive money from Google ads even though most in conservative media are beholden. I often ambiguously note that the money donated will help us grow. Today, I’m highlighting a specific need. We must get an editor to help take some of the load and to expand on our mission of spreading the truth to the world. One sick day proved that.
The great news is that there is no shortage of people who CAN help. I am emailed variations of resumes every week by people who are much smarter than I am. As much as I’d love to hire some of them, we simply cannot. That takes money and as blessed as we’ve been to receive donations and collect ad money (though not from Google or Facebook), we have still fallen short.
Those who have the means, PLEASE consider donating. We have the standard Giving Fuel option and people can donate through PayPal. We are also diving into what we believe is extremely disruptive technology at LetsGo.finance, the world’s first major donation portal for crypto. I’ll be talking a lot more about them in the near future. Those who prefer Bitcoin can send to my address here: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
We can get the voices out there and we’re willing to shine a spotlight on new talent. We just need the resources to make it happen. If you can help, we would be extremely grateful.
Thank you and God bless!
