I am a physio in private practice in Sydney.
The mother of one of my colleagues developed Stevens-Johnson Syndrome from AZ [AstraZeneca]. Doctors confirmed vax caused it and told the family to report it. They were so traumatised by it all that they had no energy left to report it to TGA. She said they now know of at least 5 other cases.
Spoke to my sister this week via text (we have very opposing views on life) – she’s a specialist in emergency med in a Sydney hospital. Asked her how work was, is it busy? She replied, “Very variable. Tonight busy but nothing really proper – soooo many anxious people with symptoms after their Covid vaccinations” (followed up with a face slap emoji).
So there you have the caring view of uninformed medical staff, not willing to listen to their patients because they have been to university to learn everything and you haven’t therefore you know nothing.
