All – Over the last week, my husband and I have received hundreds if not thousands of messages, texts, calls and emails expressing empathy and sympathy for our living nightmare. Many of these reach outs came from family and friends. Many more came from tens of thousands of strangers simply passing along healing prayers and thoughtful words. We are both forever thankful.
While reading through comments and direct messages together, my husband and I saw a couple of key questions and themes arise around our lifestyle, general health and test results. Now that he is home and recovered (THANK GOD), we thought it would be helpful to share the following:
– Karl (my husband) and I are indeed REAL. Once we saw my initial post take off, we thought it best to lock down our personal accounts for privacy. Not that anything is truly private on social media.
– He and I are in our mid/late 20s and partake in active sports like walking, hiking, skiing and wake-boarding regularly.
– My husband has no underlying conditions, no chronic conditions, and no preexisting conditions. Zero, nada, NONE.
– Given his role as a first responder, my husband was regularly tested for COVID leading up to his vaccination and was tested numerous times after falling ill. My husband did not have and continues to be Covid free.
– Yes, it was officially determined that his illness was directly linked to the vaccine.
Our objective in sharing my husbands very real experience with Moderna, the healthcare system and “all of the things” was simple -> share so that others can make more informed decisions for themselves and their families.
We hope in some small way being open and sharing these personal details truly helped you form a more comprehensive understanding of the vaccine and its potential symptoms/risks.
After nearly 11 days of aggressive illness, 6 days and 5 nights in a privately held hospital without visitors, raging potential seizure inducing fevers, 35+ tests including regular blood draws, chest x-rays, liver ultrasounds, spinal taps, forced isolation, and a hospital bill I’m sure is five miles long….
My my husband is home. My husband is safe. And my husband is well.
Thank you for your love.
Thank you for your support.
With every wish nobody in this world has to relive our nightmare.
Be well,
Jen

The last 8 days have been incredibly challenging. I had little interest in sharing the details of our lives publicly but through our experience is has become clear that information to help those suffering from the Covid Vaccine is minimal. Public groups to share experiences with the vaccine have been actively deleting posts describing my husbands experience as it doesn’t follow the message they want you to hear.
Before jumping in, I’d like clarify that my husband is a frontline worker in healthcare and has been serving his community in various ways for 10+ years. I’d also like
to say thank you to every single individual who has reached out to my husband and I to offer comfort and support. We appreciate you.
On December 26th my husband received the Moderna Covid Vaccine. Shortly after, he developed a slight fever and general exhaustion. The following day came with incredible challenges that resulted in my husband being bed ridden. Whole body exhaustion, incredibly high fevers, chills, headaches, nausea. He could barley pick his arm up…
Enter Monday, 12/28. On 1,000mg of Tylenol and 800mg of Motrin (ibuprofen) he was throwing temperatures higher than 104. I brought him to a local emergency room where he was told to treat his symptoms like Covid until proven otherwise… they gave him IV fluids and sent him on his way…
While waiting for his ultimately negative results (he does not have Covid) I called numerous urgent care centers who refused to see him, on-call doctors for ECHN who refused to provide medical advice over the phone to an ECHN patient (isn’t that their job?! Said doctor also informed me 104 fevers were not dangerous and the ice packs and cold cloths we were placing on his body were “only going to make me feel better and won’t do anything for him”.) We were left alone with minimal guidance from professionals in the field my husband has been working in for over a decade…
You may be thinking, why didn’t you call the vaccine hotline? We did. It was our first call. They picked up and said to report symptoms online for tracking purposes and then hung up. There was no guidance for treatment, no recommendations for who to seek help from… nothing more than “I hope you feel better”.
Fast forward a bit. Symptoms continued to worsen and I ultimately brought him to a privately held highly regarded emergency room in Hartford CT for further care. Without sharing specifics, I’ll share that my husband was and continues to be so incredibly ill, the hospital has been testing every potential cause for his symptoms which has included 20+ tests and counting:
– Countless X-rays,
– Multiple Ultrasounds,
– Spinal taps for meningitis, and
– Regular ongoing blood work for blood bacteria, to name a few.
Doctors and nurses from Infectious Disease have been consulting with each other to try and best identify potential trial treatments to see what works and what doesn’t. For now, he’s been given anti-bacterial medication in an attempt to relieve his symptoms.
My husband after four days still remains in the hands of caring, interested and well researched professionals who are the ONLY professionals who have taken a general interest in helping, researching and trying.
At the end of the day, I am beyond thankful for this privately held highly regarded Hartford based hospital but am very concerned about how little is being shared in regards to Covid vaccine symptoms and their severity. Two days ago I saw a big push to get the vaccine on the news with a tempting promise of a “normal fall” if we all get vaccinated… please take our experiences into consideration as you decide what is best for you and your family.
And if you’ve taken some time out of your day to read through this, please SHARE. There is little information available for those suffering. And if for any reason you become increasingly ill, please seek help from the best hospital you can as soon as you can.
If you have any questions regarding my husband, his experience or mine, please reach out. I want you to be armed with information about ALL side effects from the vaccine so you can make the best decisions for you and your families.
With every wish that you and yours stay safe and well,
Jen.
