The latest shocking COVID-19 vaccine story comes out of Goochland County, Virginia where 74-year old Richard Terrell received the one dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine earlier this month.
Several days after receiving the vaccine, Terrell had a severe skin reaction that quickly spread over his body. Soon after his skin literally began to peel off.
“I began to feel a little discomfort in my armpit and then a few days later I began to get an itchy rash, and then after that I began to swell and my skin turned red,” Terrell told ABC 8News.
The rash then proceeded to cover his whole body. “It all just happened so fast. My skin peeled off,” Terrell said. “It was stinging, burning and itching. Whenever I bent my arms or legs, like the inside of my knee, it was very painful where the skin was swollen and was rubbing against itself.”
When he went to the emergency room, doctors determined that he had experienced an adverse reaction to the COVID-19 vaccine, WRIC reported. “We ruled out all the viral infections, we ruled out COVID-19 itself, we made sure that his kidneys and liver was okay, and finally we came to the conclusion that it was the vaccine that he had received that was the cause,” said Dr. Fnu Nutan, who noted that if Terrell had not been treated, the condition could have been deadly.
“Skin is the largest organ in the body, and when it gets inflamed like his was, you can lose a lot of fluids and electrolytes,” said Nutan. “If you look at the risk for adverse reaction for the vaccine it’s really, really low,” she said. “We haven’t seen a great concern at all. I am a big proponent of the vaccine.”
Although Terrell’s extreme case may be an exception, adverse reactions to COVID-19 vaccines aren’t exceptionally rare, thousands of deaths have been reported due to vaccines. There’s good reason for many to feel a little hesitant about getting the shot, but Democrat states are still working to force them on citizens.
