A woman who has a severe allergic reaction after receiving the first dose of the Kovid-19 vaccine and those who do not take the second can not get an exemption from Quebec to get a vaccine passport.
“My life changed on May 3 when I received my first dose of the vaccine. Five minutes after taking the vaccine I started having headaches […] And I’m dizzy, ”Mariel Lewesk told Denise Lewesk.
After coming home, her headache continued. Seven days later her condition worsened.
“I had a high fever, I lost my energy, I was dizzy… I was in total pain. I could not stay or lie down, I could not sit or stand, the pain was unbelievable, ”she continued.
Ms. Leweski, who suffers from osteoarthritis, felt that the pain she was experiencing from this condition had increased tenfold.
“It’s been seven months now, and I can tell you I still have pain. […] My hands are so blunt, it doesn’t go away. My knees hurt, my feet hurt, ”she said.
Despite a medical certificate from her doctor stating that she had a link to her current condition and the vaccine, she was unable to obtain an exemption from the vaccine.
“I was told that my doctor had not ticked one of the three mandatory boxes [du formulaire d’exemption]. But you already know, this questionnaire was filled with your help. They told me that we can tell you that you have really done everything you need to do to receive the vaccination passport, you have fulfilled all the conditions, it is more than our responsibility, it is the Ministry of Prevention, ”she explains.
Thus, Mariel Levesque is trapped in the maze of bureaucracy, but most of all is left alone at home unable to go where the vaccine passport is needed.
“I am not alone in this situation. It is not possible to get a second vaccine. I am 65 years old and I am single. There is no doubt that I am twice as ill as I am, I am not, ”she said angrily.
