FULL EPISODE: https://drdrew.com/8172022 • Dr. Drew reveals his adverse reaction to the COVID-19 vaccine. “Even though I’ve had COVID twice, I may have to get a booster,” says Dr. Drew. “I had a horrible reaction to the vaccine… and I’m really very very concerned.”
After receiving the Johnson & Johnson vaccine in 2021, Dr. Drew experienced symptoms similar to transverse sinus thrombosis, with a spontaneous black eye for over 24 hours. The reaction faded within a few days.
Amidst growing concern over adverse reactions, should governments and employers continue to mandate COVID-19 vaccines for everyone – regardless of individual risk?
Dr. @Peter McCullough, MD and Dr. Kelly Victory discuss Dr. Drew’s vaccine reaction, the Emergency Use Authorization of COVID-19 injections, and shortcomings of government health mandates that interfere with the individualized care between a patient and their physician. As lifelong supporters of vaccinations for public health, the doctors fear that a bungled response to COVID-19 is worsening vaccine hesitancy and providing talking points to hardline anti-vaxxers across the world.
The CDC states that COVID-19 vaccines are safe, effective, and reduce your risk of severe illness. Hundreds of millions of people have received a COVID-19 vaccine, and serious adverse reactions are rare. You should always consult your personal physician before making any decisions about your health.
