Dr. Susan Malinowski, an ophthalmologist in Michigan who had Covid-19 in March, certainly felt like her body was under attack after she received the Moderna vaccine. She got the first shot before lunch on New Year’s Eve. By dinner, she was starting to feel ill. She spent the next two days miserable in bed.
“I had fevers. I had chills. I had night sweats. I had pain everywhere in my body,” she said. “I was actually more ill after the vaccine than I was with Covid.”
People who have already been sick with Covid-19 should still be vaccinated, experts say, but they may experience intense side effects even after one dose.
There are many who work in the medical community like registered nurses who refuse to take any of the vaccinated shots. They have witnessed firsthand watching the negative effects from those who were vaccinated and are getting very sick landing up in hospitals.
Shannon Romano, a molecular biologist, came down with Covid late last March, about a week after she and her colleagues shut down their lab at Mount Sinai Hospital. A debilitating headache came first, followed by a fever that kept rising, and then excruciating body aches. “I couldn’t sleep. I couldn’t move,” she said. “Every one of my joints just hurt inside.”
It was not an experience she did not want to repeat — ever. So when she became eligible for the Covid-19 vaccine earlier this month, she got the shot but no further information was given after she got the shot.
