PERTH — A 37-year-old police officer and small business owner is trying to live her life as normal despite accepting the fact that she could drop dead any day, any time.
Ms. Chantal Uren is a police officer for the Western Australian Police Force (WAPOL). She said that the police force mandated vaccines for all personnel in August. Though Ms. Uren made clear that she “is not an anti-vaxxer,” she was against receiving these particular injections due to lack of sufficient information on them. There is no data about long-term effects, she said. Ms. Uren was also concerned about how the shots were rushed to the market. But she felt there was “no choice” but to receive the injections if she wanted to keep her “privileged role” with WAPOL.
Despite her reluctance, Ms. Uren received her first Pfizer mRNA injection sometime in late August. She knew immediately that the decision changed her life, and not for the better. Vertigo, nausea and hives all appeared within 15 minutes.
Ms. Uren was discharged after medical personnel “got the rash under control.” But the relief was temporary. The next day, she had a 103 degree (39.7 Celsius) fever, more hives, and more nausea. For the next four weeks, Ms. Uren suffered persistent hives, fevers, vomiting, diarrhea, and a debilitating cough. Unfortunately the worst was yet to come.
Bell’s Palsy, ruptured aneurysm and stroke
Ms. Uren was apparently still going to work through all this. But that all changed sometime in mid-September. Mrs. Uren said her eyes “felt weird” one Tuesday morning. So she took an antihistamine before driving to work. When she arrived at work, a co-worker told her that her face was “drooping sideways.”
