Teenager’s harrowing journey after COVID vaccine side effect

A 17-year-old girl from Tasmania is speaking out about the side effects she suffered from the coronavirus vaccine.

Faith’s specialist from Launceston General Hospital wrote in her medical report, “There is no question Faith has had a delayed reaction to the second vaccination.”

Faith has since been diagnosed with “functional neurological disorder”.

More than 63 million doses of the COVID jab have been administered in Australia.

The Federal Government believes there have been 136,500 adverse reactions which means the chances of suffering a side effect is 0.2 per cent.

Faith was vaccinated in August last year and became sick three days later.

She suffered severe abdominal pain and had her appendix removed but it didn’t make her any better.

She lost a significant amount of weight and developed sudden muscle tics and twitches.

Faith wants people to see a video that she says illustrates those side effects.

Her mother Tania has told Ben Fordham, “Faith is the one who wanted the video out there”.

“It doesn’t happen to everyone and it’s very rare. But Faith wants people to know that this can happen.”

Tania says she has been to countless experts to try and help her daughter.

2GB Healthy Living host Dr Ross Walker agreed to examine Faith’s medical history.

“What’s happened is that the COVID vaccine has pulverised Faith’s gut bacteria,” he told Ben.

Dr Ross Walker has put Faith and her family in touch with a new specialist for further treatment.

The Federal Government has a vaccine claim scheme for people who have suffered jab side effects.

However, Faith doesn’t qualify for funding because she doesn’t fit the criteria.

Her health condition is not eligible for assistance.

Faith’s diagnosis has cost her family tens of thousands of dollars and a GoFundMe page has been set up to assist with the huge medical bills.
