"My life has completely changed – I am disabled"
How taking the jab is now this 35-year-old's biggest regret
LAST week Sir Chris Whitty resurfaced after weeks of silence to remind NHS staff of what he calls their “professional responsibility” to have a Covid-19 vaccine.
He said: “The Covid-19 vaccines are safe and effective, with over 10billion doses given worldwide. They provide a very high degree of protection from serious disease.”
Ignoring the situation in Israel where, despite being the most jabbed country on earth with the majority on to their fourth [booster] jab, cases are now spiralling out of control, Whitty added: “They [the Covid-19 vaccines] also provide protection from becoming infected. We all know that this protection from infection is not absolute. Whilst we can be infected if vaccinated, getting vaccinated reduces that risk, particularly after your booster dose.”
Whitty also chose to ignore a study from his colleagues in America from the Centres for Disease Control, which found that vaccination did nothing to improve the immunity of those who had had previous infection. He said: “There is now good evidence that being vaccinated provides additional protection to those who have had a prior infection.”
Sir Chris Whitty, News Uncut introduces you to 35-year-old Georgia Segal:
By Mark Sharman
GEORGIA SEGAL says her life changed within four hours of taking her second Pfizer dose. She began fainting three times a day. Within 10 days she lost the use of her legs and began suffering full body tremors. She spent the next 10 days in hospital “having every test going”.
She says: “I asked about the vaccine and couldn’t get a straight answer until finally, a neurologist confirmed it was 100 per cent the jab. I cried with the acknowledgement. They’d made me feel as though I was going mad.”
Georgia, who is 35 and from Hertfordshire, was a regular gym user and was nervous of the vaccine because of a lack of data. But she was reassured by GPs and went ahead because “at least I could visit family in Israel”.
She works in the music industry but now says: “I can’t stand being around people. I can’t stand noise, so I had to make earplugs. I have headaches and facial spasms, which I have to explain to people. If I try to run, my legs give way. My life has completely changed – I am disabled.”
With the help of crowdfunding Georgia has raised £10,000 for on-going private treatment in London and Germany.
She has 52,000 followers on social media but, in telling her story, she has had her experiences labelled as ‘misinformation’ by Instagram. She also received a warning by Facebook for revealing her injuries.
But she said: “Taking that shot was the biggest regret of my life.”
