My name is Clare. I am a registered Nurse by profession with over 10 years Nursing experience in the U.K. I am 38 years old and Live in London.
In my free time, during work holidays, I enjoy travelling a lot. Before the vaccine I was fit and healthy with no underlying medical issues.
I worked in ITU as a nurse in a private hospital in London. I swam every morning before working a 12-hour shift and had lots of energy.
When the vaccine for covid-19 came out, my gut instinct told me not to take it.
Working at the hospital I never saw anyone very sick with covid unless with a pre-existing illness or condition, including colleagues. As a key worker, my daughter was allowed to continue attending school and there seemed to be no
danger posed to the children.
In evaluation, I believed that covid was a serious fIu that would only affect people with underlying health problems. I was very healthy and did not see any reason for me to take it, there were also several reports of adverse reactions which frightened me.
The hospital sent out staff letters stating that the vaccine was mandatory to retain our positions. I put it off for as long as I could, there was a deadline yet I was hopeful that maybe nurses in the UK would stand up and refuse the mandate as they were doing in other parts of the world.
It was soon clear that there was no way around it. On 31st January 2021, I received the first dose of Astrazeneca in my left arm at a local medical centre. My arm became sore immediately but other than that I had no noticeable reaction at the time.
Like many other concerned nurses and colleagues, I took aspirin for 3 days prior and post vaccination to reduce the risk of blood clots. There was nothing else to do but try to protect ourselves in some form.
Around 2 months later I noticed the first sign that something was different. My period was 2-3 days late which was highly unusual for me. I had not been on birth control for over 6 years, my cycle is usually highly predictable.
Aside from this oddity, I continued with my normal life and worked hard.
The second dose soon became mandatory, and my then-manager refused to give us time off to get vaccinated.
Appointments were not easy to find at this time, it was hard to find time off. So I drove to a nearby NHS hospital on the 29th of April using my break time.
I received Astrazeneca again in my left arm and went back to work straight away.
This time I developed a lasting fever of 38 degrees. I ran hot and cold with lingering pain in my left arm. Luckily I had the next two days off to rest. I took paracetamol and it cleared up before I returned to work.
Concerned, I called my GP but was informed nothing could be done as I was technically still performing its monthly cycle and since there was no medication I was taking, nothing could be changed. I was simply advised to monitor it.
They asked if I was stressed or made any recent dietary changes to which I replied I had not. Work has always been stressful but it never affected me this way before. I would consider myself sufficient in stress management.
During that time it was still difficult to gain a doctor’s appointment and people were brushed off if their ailments weren’t deemed serious enough. One time I called to ask if it could be a result of the vaccine and they said it was impossible.
I began hearing my colleagues complaining of the same menstrual issues. Some said, “you are lucky to have yours at all, mine have gone completely”.
When the booster came out, the Astrazeneca brand was no longer available in the UK. It was quietly removed with no obvious explanation or public statement given. I found this strange as Astrazeneca was still administered in Uganda and across most of Africa.
They called me in to have it only 9 weeks after my second dose, to which I refused. I felt that not enough time had passed and was scared to risk using a new brand. Why should I now have Pfizer or Moderna as I don’t know how my body will react to it? Better the devil you know.
Once more, I put it off as long as I could.
As time went on, I heard a radio announcement. It was an NHS public message urging people who had received a list of specific batch numbers to contact their GP. My batch numbers did not appear on the list but nobody was ever informed what the issue was. Even today we still don’t know what happened to those who took those batches.
On 15th June 2021 I left my job at the London hospital in favour of a nursing agency. The agency policy recognised 2 vaccines as being fully jabbed and did not require the booster vaccine to work.
At this point everything was okay, I was feeling healthy just concerned about colleagues who were not turning up to work after getting their booster.
One woman came in a day after her vaccine, she began fitting and was taken to accident and emergency. As A&E is my background, I was updated by old colleagues about rising cases of fits, seizures and problems after the vaccine. It was not just me, serious side effects were happening to lots of people.
I began to feel unwell in mid-December 2021 and tested positive for covid.
I was very ill for 2 weeks with Malaria-type symptoms, trouble breathing etc. I went to school in Africa where malaria is a common threat and I feel that comparison is apt.
I spent these weeks at home self-medicating and felt okay after that. From then on, my cycle was never regular again. Sometimes it was short, other times it was long and the flow fluctuated from heavy to very light and barely there at all. It was all over the place.
Whilst I was ill with covid, I was called to come in for my booster which baffled me. They strongly wanted to book me in for an appointment even though there would be no certainty of testing negative on that date. No time frame was ever suggested for how long to wait after infection; it seems they just wanted to vaccinate everyone as quickly as possible.
“Shouldn’t you be able to see on the system that I’m currently positive?”
There was evidently not enough training and the system wasn’t being utilised.
Many people will have had covid at the same time as their vaccine which doesn’t seem safe or appropriate. It’s a big mess.
In February 2022 I decided to take a long holiday to Uganda as I hadn’t seen my family or fiancé since before travel restrictions were introduced.
Working at the agency, I was finally able to take an extended break. It felt like a window of opportunity before the booster would be made compulsory, invalidating the first two vaccines and ruining my chances of travelling.
The stress led me to explore every option, including a fake vaccine certificate, which would mean losing my career if caught. I had so much to lose either way but this was how desperate I became. Ethically I believed I should stand my ground and not feed into a system I disagreed with. Subsequently, I decided against this option.
It’s easy to obtain false documents such as this from Africa’s black market, and I disbelieve the official number of citizens who claim to be vaccinated. Many will have false documents.
I was in Uganda for a month and a half in total and by late March my body was telling me something felt different, my breasts were tender and I was slightly nauseated. A pregnancy test confirmed I was with child before travelling back to England. The first week of May I was back in London and back to work. I had a smooth pregnancy with no fatigue and no bleeding, everything was fine and I was healthy and happy.
The law changed around this time and the mandatory action was dropped for boosters, meaning there was no longer the threat of losing my job, but still I was prompted to take it. I told them I was pregnant and it wasn’t safe to do so.
“No, it IS safe. Where did you read that?” I stood firm and refused.
By then, over 90% of the workforce had taken the booster dose. Health care assistants made up the majority whilst more hesitancy came from the nurses who questioned the safety and efficiency of the vaccines.
The health care assistants were calling in sick more and more often. It didn’t make any sense that the more vaccines people had, the more susceptible to illness they became, catching covid multiple times. All whilst precautions were in place such as wearing masks, testing daily, reduced visiting hours and sanitation.
The talk of long-covid was increasing, with colleagues saying they didn’t feel the same after covid. They were unsure if it was covid or the effects of the vaccine but many people were increasingly ill and unable to get back to full health.
I knew my baby was due around Christmas and I needed to plan where I wanted to be. The pregnancy was progressing well, I was still working and attending prenatal classes, I was the correct weight and felt energetic and bright.
I chose to give birth in Uganda for several reasons. To be surrounded by my family, my child’s father and because I wanted good medical care. In Uganda, for £600 I could go private and have my own doctor and an entire team to ensure a safe birth.
Winter is a busy time in UK hospitals with increased illness. It is also not uncommon for women in labour to be sent home until their waters have broken, which adds stress.
I worked up to maternity leave and left the Uk after my 20-week scan that showed everything was fine. I travelled with my daughter to Uganda and was booked in for a planned C-section.
On Monday the 19th of December, I was prepped for theatre, stayed awake during the procedure and was pain-free.
My son was born with a healthy cry, weighing 2.68kg. I held him for initial skin-to-skin contact. Whilst receiving my stitches and in recovery, the midwife told me that he was gripping and making colic noise, not unusual in newborn babies and tends to go away naturally.
He was put in the neonatal intensive care unit for observation and given a glucose IV and oxygen to clear the gripping. My family were all there to see him and pass on updates. My mum is a midwife and had a pass to check on him every 2 hours.
The next morning, I was stable enough to walk and went with my mum to see my baby. He looked healthy. I held him and practised latching, he was suckling fine and had stopped the gripping sound.
Doctors wanted to assess how he would do without the oxygen and said he could be released as early as that afternoon. I remember looking around at the other babies in the unit and they all looked so ill in comparison to
my son, I felt sorry for them.
I went for lunch and straight back to the unit when my colostrum production started. He had been off the SATS monitor for an hour, I gave him his first feed and he fell asleep. His breathing and colour were fine. I had been sitting for some time when the nurse advised I should lie down to rest. She informed me they would do a final blood check to rule out any concerns and then
bring him to me in my room.
I put him back in the cot when the nurse asked “Have you wrapped him up well?” Instinctively I turned around and in that instant, we both noticed his colour had changed, he was very pale. We rushed to him, the nurse checking over him as I was touching him to stimulate our skin-to-skin contact.
We realised he wasn’t breathing. The nurse reattached the oxygen and we shouted for help, in the space of a minute there were 8 doctors and specialists surrounding his cot. His heart was pumping but his breathing had stopped. He was put on ventilated life support.
The medical team asked to see my scans as they couldn’t figure out what had happened, although the congenital defect could not have been detected through prenatal scans. Coming up to midnight, my baby started to go cold and as a nurse, I could see rigour Mortis beginning to set in I prayed and had to let go, we needed more than a miracle at this point and there was nothing anyone
My feet were terribly swollen, I couldn’t believe I was able to stand for so long after surgery and was advised to take rest as I was in shock, grieving and vulnerable. By morning, the 21st December the team called to ask my permission to turn life support off, sadly we had lost him. I permitted it, as it would only cause more pain to prolong our suffering.
The Doctors along with family members requested a post-mortem. There was an increasing amount of new-born fatalities and everyone wanted answers.
In the UK, it takes time and there can be a long wait for results, unlike in Africa where once the fees are paid, the post-mortem is performed right there and then, we had the results within 2 hours.
The results showed a lung defect, not that they weren’t fully developed but the right lung defect meant it didn’t open, failing to take adequate oxygen to the brain and organs.
He survived with only one lung until it could not support him any longer.
They do not know how many babies are dying of these defects as it’s not common for women to go through with a post-mortem due to the trauma and cost.
In Uganda, when a baby passes away, it is our culture to bury them on the same day. It was 5am when he passed away and was buried at 6pm.
I wonder what would have happened if he had been kept on oxygen, they might have noticed the defect but he would have needed surgery to remove the bad lung and he would have been fully dependent on oxygen his whole life and that’s only if the other lung was good and strong enough.
One doctor asked me when discussing the scans if I caught covid and how many vaccinations I’d had and how long ago. It was advised amongst the medical community to wait at least a year before conceiving after being vaccinated in case of related dangers. A year had not passed when I fell
In my medical opinion, the vaccine seems to target the lungs and stays in the DNA affecting foetuses and babies. We should be informed of the side effects, the pros and cons before taking such a dangerous vaccine. Withheld information could not allow us to make an informed conscious decision.
A recent medical study in Israel on pregnant women who had the vaccine featured in the world premiere “died suddenly” on rumble.com indicates a huge increase world wide in babies born with congenital birth defects of all sorts in the heart and brain
People get in touch with me a lot to say they are ill or know someone who is sick or have lost a baby too, it’s really happening but somehow we are all being silenced.
My plan now is to concentrate on healing emotionally.
I think about what is going to happen to these people having the vaccine and how long it will go on for. I don’t want anyone else to go through this experience. Not everyone has good mental strength, I’ve seen so much sickness in my line of work but to see my own baby go through this is just so hard.
The fact I witnessed everything gives me closure. He was breathing, I had been feeding him, holding him in my arms and the space of minutes was all it took for things to change so drastically. The Doctors and medical team did everything they could under the circumstances.
In Africa, covid mainly killed people with previously diagnosed underlying medical issues and some others with pre-existing undiagnosed medical issues.
As of today, covid is almost non-existent in Uganda. There are no covid cases in hospitals. It’s unbelievable that adverts for the vaccine are still airing. The pharmaceutical companies are funding corrupt leaders to push for these experimental vaccines. This is a campaign, a promotion.
The medical system is now so dangerous, how can you look into the eyes of young pregnant women and tell them it’s okay to take an experimental vaccine? That it is “impossible” for it to cause harm? How can they advocate so strongly for what they don’t know? It could be fatal.
We all have different genetic compositions and react differently to medication and vaccinations. You don’t know what side effects are going to come up in the years ahead, some babies are born healthy and then in and out of a&E with breathing difficulties, and years later people collapse and die, kids sleep and don’t wake up. It is not specific to any age.
I intend to reach out and advise as many people as I can, not to take the vaccine but rather eat healthy, and exercise regularly. I will return to the UK at some point and do what I do best as an agency Nurse. If the mandates come back in place, I will get on the next plane back home to Africa and concentrate on my farming or better still run my clinic in Africa because saving lives and health promotion is my passion. I can never comply with taking another vaccine.
If by telling my story and raising awareness we can save a life or two, then we have done well.
