I Have Vaccine-Related Myocarditis and Now I Can’t Work

28 October 2021

3.4 MINS

I have been diagnosed with a vaccine injury and am no longer able to work. I may not be eligible for the government’s proposed compensation scheme. What can I do?

My name is Alan Steele. I am 54 years old, and I am from Shell Cove in New South Wales, Australia.

What follows is a true story. I have no reason to create a false account of my experience and am in no way an ‘anti-vaxxer’. I also realise there are people in worse and more tragic situations than the one I find myself in. Before all this happened, I was fit and healthy. This experience is true for too many people.

Leading up to September 23rd, 2021, my wife and I had many discussions about whether or not we would have the vaccine. The number of COVID-19 cases in our area was insignificant, so we felt safe in our community. We decided as a family to have minimal contact with people so that our risk of contracting COVID-19 was minimal.

The Decision To Get Vaccinated

As time went by, it became more apparent that we would have to get vaccinated. Firstly, my wife works within the community sector and has to do face-to-face meetings with the general public. Secondly, the thought of one of our family members bringing COVID-19 into our household and possibly infecting each other was a terrible scenario.

We looked at all the data in regards to the possible side effects from the different vaccines. We wanted to get the Pfizer vaccine because it seemed safer to us, but it wasn’t readily available at that time. I called my local pharmacy and found out they just got a shipment of Moderna.

Two days later, we all went in and got our Moderna shots. We all felt fine. My wife had a sore arm, but that was it. I even called a mate of mine and talked him into getting the Moderna shot.

Then six days later, I began to have chest pains, dizziness, shortness of breath and high blood pressure. My blood pressure reached 195/125. I went to my doctor, and he told me to go straight to the hospital, so I did.

My Three Visits to the Hospital

I thought I was going to have a heart attack. After three hospital presentations, countless blood tests, scans, X-rays and stress tests, my condition — as I know it now — was unable to be diagnosed.

Looking back over my discharge notes, I can see the doctors thought they were dealing with a hypertension patient. It was two and a half weeks until I finally got a proper diagnosis from my cardiologist: vaccine-related myocarditis.

I didn’t even know what myocarditis was until my wife pointed out that I had all the symptoms just before my last hospital visit. I asked the doctor during this last visit to the hospital if he thought that I had vaccine-related myocarditis. He said that it was unlikely because I had underlying health problems.

I know my body better than anyone. I’ve had high blood pressure since the early 90s but have never been short of breath when resting. I’ve never experienced heart pain, shortness of breath and dizziness, ever.

Life After My Vaccine Injury

So where does this leave me?

I can’t work. I can’t walk up my stairs without being out of breath. Because I can’t work, I have no income, and people in my situation do not qualify for any emergency payment. The government have a proposed COVID-19 vaccine claims scheme. Proposed.

The criteria to be eligible for this proposed scheme are as follows.

For claims between $5,000 and $20,000, claimants need to have been hospitalised for at least one night, will need to nominate they are seeking less than $20,000, and provide applicable evidence of:

  • the nature of the injury and medical documentation of its likely relationship to a COVID-19 vaccination
  • hospitalisation due to a vaccine-related injury
  • medical costs
  • lost wages

So, you might receive support if your doctor will confirm that the injury is linked to the vaccine and if you spent one night in hospital. But I see a few issues with this.

I think doctors are very reluctant to formally draw a link. I was in and out of the hospital three times. Twice I was there for around five hours. My last visit to the hospital began at 9pm one night, and I was discharged from the ER the following morning, but was I formally admitted? Will this count as a night in the hospital?

Unanswered Questions

People like myself who suffer a vaccine injury are being thrown onto the scrap heap: no income, no assistance. Just the hope of a proposed claims scheme that you may not even qualify for.

How long until I recover from this myocarditis? Will it be weeks or months? How long can I last without an income because I can’t work? What will be the long-term damage to my health?

The way I see it, people need immediate financial help. Why wouldn’t a formal diagnosis from a cardiologist be enough to qualify? If the hospital didn’t or wouldn’t admit you for an overnight stay, you will not be eligible.

Answers to these questions are yet to be forthcoming. Either way, I hope that my story can help prompt those who are in a position to make a difference.

    Hi Alan. I believe you. When I took this issue to God for me and my boys, God told me to stand on Mark 16:18 and I want to declare that over your life right now. Alan, pray for healing complete recovery that every adverse effect will be nullified in Jesus name, that nothing that is poison to your body shall remain and every cell will be fully healed. Praying ????????

    This is why I refuse to be jabbed by an experimental injection. I don’t care if people call me names or say I am selfish or try to bully or threaten me. My gut says I don’t need a so called protection from a virus that has 99.98% chance of recovery.
    You get minimised & shut out if you get injured from this experiment. Thank you for sharing your story, I hope people open their minds & do as much research as possible. I hope your health & situation improves. Never stop fighting for compensation from these big wigs that are protected & don’t trust government or Doctors as they have been threatened if they don’t push the agenda. Sad story… ???????? from Shell Cove.

    You should also consider a blood test to check your immune system and d-dimer tests for clots etc.
    Basically ask for a full bloods to document all you can in this present condition, and maybe compare to the past tests you have had.
    I wouldnt be surprised if there will be a class action against these big-companies when it comes out that they maybe have claimed a magic potion when in fact many many people are in the exact same boat as you worldwide.

    Hi Allan
    I held my breath when I started reading this because over the past month my father who is 79 and up until a couple of months ago was living a normal life ,he could drive tend to his garden go for daily walks and lived a pretty normal life
    Early September after his second Astra Zeneca vaccine he started developing pains in his lower limbs mainly at night but then that progressed to aching shoulders and arms and then his whole body was in pain whenever he tried to move . This became problematic as he could no longer get himself up out of bed he had a loss of appetite moving was painful he had no strength in his body at all even holding a cup or flushing the toilet was extremely painful
    In a matter of weeks he went from healthy to being almost unable to move
    Many trips to the doctor and even an ambulance ride to Wollongong hospital where he raised his concern that this may have something to do with the covid vaccine but he was reassured by ER doctors that was not the case and he was sent home the same day awaiting blood results
    The GP gave him anti inflammatory Celebrex and sent him home. Only when I insisted he see another doctor did someone finally take it seriously and sent him for more bloods and an ultrasound to check for a DVT which came back all clear but still we were having to lift him up and lift his legs to get him in a car
    This doctor however suggested he see a Neurologist next and was instrumental in getting an urgent consult and guess what
    Autoimmune Miyositis an inflammation of the muscles brought on by the covid vaccine

    So sorry about your situation. Hope and pray things get better for you.

    I am prone to having very bad migraines with aura, dizzy spells, low blood pressure, nosebleeds, bruising on skin. NO WAY IN HELL am I going to take these gene therapy so called “vaccines”.

    Yes, am sorry your in this state.
    My Adult Son was a having a small surgery. No surgery if no Jab.
    Jab one week, surgery the next week, you would understand discomfort.
    2nd jab 2-3 weeks latter.
    He since had several add minions to hospital for excessive pain and headaches.
    Then a weeks or so latter, he hit his head a fell. He had what seems like a stroke.
    This is all on top of mental ill health from a situation back in 2005.
    He was in the wrong* place at the wrong time.
    Was bashed by gang of 11.
    He, finally got int suitable job after lots of times of difficulty from ABI from the bashing.
    Back to now.
    After the”we can’t catorgoraclly say it was a stroke” but that what it seems like.
    He has returned to my place due to needing a safe place to be, to drive home to appointments and travel a two hour journey one way to pick up his daughter and return my place then do it again two days latter to return her home. I love driving but starting put pressure on right side back and leg.
    My son is now having to be back on a previous med to deal with the chemical imbalance. He walking like he not go true balance and his speech is literally not there sometimes. Gets tied very easily.
    It takes a lot for him to concentrate to speak and have volume to be heard.
    There is much more I could add. If your case for getting recognised for the injury is accepted, please let me know.
    Once again, am sorry your in this situation. May God, interview in your situation and give you back the health you need and capacity to work. You have value as a person. Never forget that.
    Thanks for your prayers. From Rochester Victoria

    Hi Alan, so saddened to hear of your dilemma. Please consider a post-jab detox protocol eg. Zeolite, glutathione, quercetin, liposomal C, D3, zinc, Nigella seed oil and a Para-Cleanse blend (black walnut, wormwood, oregano oil etc).

    I am heartbroken at all the sad stories. Many thousands maybe millions of vaccinated people with impaired health due to having to take these vaccinations. I’m told many people are seeking reputable practitioner of Chinese Medicine prior and post jab to help detox their bodies and lessen the ill effects of the jab as possible. God made us with bodies that can heal themselves. I pray that these natural remedies may give you all relief.

    For everyone else reading these articles. Please peacefully attend as many rallies and join the growing number of people who urgently are trying to pressure the rogue governments of the world to stop this atrocity. The governments are coming after the children now. We need to make our forefathers proud and again stand together this time against the governments if we are to protect ourselves, our children and our future freedoms.

    Hi Alan, We know each other from our mutual local church and we worked together a few years ago, volunteering to fix up The Woolshed at Yallah.

    Today the well-known Sydney lawyers involved in Supreme Court of NSW cases recently has justed posted this on their Telegram page:

    Can Vaccine affected/injured person contact my office.

    Here is link to above Telegram post

    Hoping this helps you and many others who have been jab-injured/ affected.

    I am going to be absolutely blunt. You don’t know what happened and you refuse to get it properly and thoroughly checked – thinking you know. You don’t. You can’t – because you are not a qualified medical practitioner. Self diagnosis is not on and spreading this story as though it’s true is a blight on the distribution of accurate information. The real answer lies in your high blood pressure and that should be your focus – along with the likelihood that you had COVID itself and didn’t know it, and this is long COVID showing as myocarditis.

    Am I a doctor? No I’m not – but I am smart enough to actually listen to them. It is clear that you are not.

    Hi Alan,
    I have gone onto the TGA website today under “Batch release assessment of COVID-19 vaccines” Link:

    I have identified 5 batch numbers for the Spikevax (Moderna) from first release date 14.09.2021 until 24.09.2021 (all delivered from overseas) as follows:

    1. Batch no. 000002A, 14/09/2021
    2. Batch no. 3005842, 19/09/2021
    3. Batch no. 000002A, 19/09/2021
    4. Batch no. 000016A, 21/09/2021
    5. Batch no. 3006329, 24/09/2021

    Batch 000016A according to “How Bad is My Batch” website, which uses the VAERS (USA) data, has had 2 adverse reports in France & UK; but no deaths or disabilities or life-threatening illnesses.
    However, batch no. 3006329 (Spain only affected) on this same website, has had 8 adverse reports with 1 death, 1 disability and 1 life threatening illness. Direct Link (currently 47,483 data entries):

    But the batch number 3006329 was released on 24.09.2021 and you state in your article, that the pharmacy advised on 21.09.2021 (2 days before being jabbed on 23.09.2021), that they had just received a shipment of Moderna.

    So, as your wife and yourself were both jabbed at the same pharmacy with the same global experimental trial C19 product , Moderna (Spikevax), but only you were badly affected and not your wife,. then to determine the EXACT batch number for both of you, Services Australia website advises to seek out the batch number from the vaccination provider (pharmacy), where you were jabbed on 23.09.2021.

    Then once your wife’s and your batch numbers are known, you can cross reference them in the TGA website for verification and then enter the batch number/s into the “How Bad is My Batch” dot com website for further analysis.

    My ‘gut feel’ is you probably got the 000016A batch number. If your wife got the same batch number, then whatever was in the ‘ingredients’ in the vial, probably triggered a bad reaction, considering you have a high blood pressure medical condition. But like you wrote, you had “never been short of breath while resting”.

    I am glad you got the proper diagnosis from your Cardiologist and within 2.5 weeks that it was “vaccine-related myocarditis”. I think once you receive the batch numbers for you and your wife, I reckon you will have a stronger case of evidence of harm, and possibly negligence by the A&E hospital department, despite their many tests. However, the ISLHD public health hospital (Shellharbour or Wollongong?) should have admitted you and done thorough specialist cardiology tests.

    Hope this information is helpful for you and others.
