Ross Wightman, who was diagnosed with Guillain-Barré syndrome shortly after receiving a dose of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine, has become one of the first recipients of funds under Canada’s Vaccine Injury Support Program.
But the plight of others who have suffered vaccine injuries weighs heavily on the realtor and former pilot from B.C.’s Okanagan Valley.
Wrightman says he’s “feeling fired up” about the inaction of government and the medical system in recognizing those who have suffered vaccine injuries.
“The longer this goes on the more angry, and completely disheartened I get by the lack of recognition from government officials and doctors that these things are actually happening,” he wrote in a May 31 Facebook post. (Source)
