Brianne Dressen a preschool teacher from Utah who was injured after participating AstraZeneca’s Clinical trial of the COVID vaccine in November 2020. He accumulated more than $ 250,000 in medical bills as a result of injuries he believes the vaccine caused.
The dress SAYS within an hour of being vaccinated he had the arm. When he got home his vision was blurred and doubled. Her sensitivity became so severe that she had to wear earmuffs and sunglasses all the time.
That’s when the situation gets worse. “Things are moving fast,” Dressen said. He experienced neurological decline, but no one could explain why. After a neurological scan, doctors said he looked like he had multiple sclerosis (MS).
Approved by the Mayo Clinic, MS is a tendency to cause brain and spinal cord disease in which the immune system attacks the protective sheath (myelin) that covers nerve fibers and causes communication problems between the brain and the rest of the body.
Dressen lost use of his legs, as his symptoms worsened. After running multiple MRIs, CT scans and lumbar punctures, doctors still have no answers, The ABC4 News report.
Dressen recounts that she spent months teaching herself how to walk, eat and also form sentences as she traveled in search of answers.
“The hospital didn’t know what was going on… none of the neurologists I saw knew what was going on,” Dressen said. “A lot of times I’ve called the testing clinic and they don’t know what’s going on.”
Dressen has talked to others who face similar symptoms after being vaccinated, and she wants people injured by the COVID vaccine to get help.
“I want the CDC to do the right thing and talk to the medical community so people can get help,” Dressen said. “I want the public to have the whole picture so they can make an informed decision.”
The senators demanded responses from vaccine makers
Dressen, along with other people said they were injured by the vaccines but “repeatedly ignored”In the medical community, joined late last month in a news conference held by Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.).

After the news, Johnson and Sen. Mike Lee wrote a letter of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) saying the agencies have ignored requests for help and responses from families injured by the COVID vaccine.
The Senators WROTE:
“The presence of these vulnerabilities can be financially, physically and emotionally debilitating for suffering individuals and their families. These individuals have previously been expressed by both CDC Director Walensky and the Food and Drug Administration. “Acting Commissioner Woodcock said they want answers and help. To date, their requests have been ignored or gone without a meaningful response.”
Lee and Johnson say widespread lack of recognition bad events following the received a COVID the vaccine makes it almost impossible for some individuals to get the treatment they need, and those risks need to be exposed to the medical community and the public.
“If there is any COVID-19 vaccine that actually causes adverse weight events that are felt to be high, even in a small percentage of cases, these risks need to be exposed, especially in the community. medicine so that healthcare professionals are properly informed and can provide necessary treatment., care, and information to the general public as they weigh the risks and benefits of vaccination, ”the Senators wrote.
In the letter, Lee and Johnson asked the FDA and CDC about the adverse events suffered in the clinical trials, which are disclosed in the FDA’s Emergency Authorization Memorandum for Pfizer, Modern and Johnson and Johnson vaccines, as well as reported injuries from the U.S. AstraZeneca trial.
Lee and Johnson asked if the CDC has partnered with physicians and researchers with the FDA, National Institutes of Health or other medical research bodies to provide different individuals who have experienced adverse effects of vaccine treatment and care. .
Getting federal compensation for COVID vaccine damages is rare
As in Defender reports July 8, people facing multiple medical bills after being injured by a COVID vaccine have few options beyond being covered by their own health insurance, because a federal law protects those making the vaccine out of responsibility.

the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 and Decision of the United States Supreme Court on Russell Bruesewitz et al. Wyeth et al, guaranteed vaccine manufacturers, physicians and other vaccine administrators almost no legal accountability or financial liability to the civil court if a government recommends or orders a vaccine to cause permanent injury or death.
In 2005, Congress passed the Public Preparedness and Emergency Preparedness Practices (PREPARATION), that gives permission the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has issued a declaration providing strength from tort liability for claims of loss caused by medical resistance (e.g., vaccines, drugs, products ) against diseases or other threats of public health emergencies.
On Feb. 4, 2020, HHS called the PREP Act previously declared COVID-19 a public health emergency. On January 21, HHS changes the work, which expands the liability protection to include additional categories of qualified persons authorized to prescribe, administer and administer COVID-19 vaccines approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
In exchange for immunity for vaccine makers, under the PREP Act, the federal government has promised compensation for adverse reactions to COVID treatments and vaccines through a program called Countermeasures Injury Comprehensive Program (CICP), operated by HHS.
As in Defender reports July 1, since the start of the CICP program in 2010, Only 29 claimed already paid, with an average payout of nearly $ 200,000. The other 452 claims (91.4%) were denied. Ten claims received approval but were deemed ineligible for compensation.
only about 8% of people applying for CICP with vaccine injuries have previously received payments, and do not have protections from the United States legal system.

HHS was forced to post CICP-related data
HHS last month agreed to post the data related to CICP, thanks to an investigation by Atlanta television news station, 11Alive, a partner of WXIA-TV.
For nine months, 11Alive’s investigation team reported on the lack of transparency within the CICP. Last month, the government released data on the CICP requested by 11Alive and agreed to make the data publicly available.
As of July 1, the CICP reports 1,165 claims were filed. According to its website, CICP is free of any COVID-19 claims. Two COVID-related claims were dismissed because the applicant could not prove the countermeasure caused their injury. One claim is associated with intubation, the other is vaccination. Almost all of the claims are still awaiting medical examination.
“I think people sometimes have a distrust of the government and people think the government is hiding things from them if they’re not transparent,” said Melissa Wasser with Government Management Project. “The public has a right to know this information, especially with all government resources used.”
The CICP website outlines program criteria, which provide reimbursement of medical expenses, lost employment income and death benefits as “the late payer,” covering only the remainder unpaid or unpaid in other third parties, such as health insurance.
Under the CICP program, attorney’s fees are not covered. There is no court, judge or right of appeal. Those who believe they have sustained an injury from a COVID vaccine have only one year from the date of injury to file a claim.
