Orthopedic surgeon says he was ‘abandoned’ after Covid vaccine leads to crippling end of career

Just seven days after receiving Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine, Dr. Joel Wallskog faced the crippling end of his career as an orthopedic surgeon.

Now Wallskog is traveling the nation, trying to help other victims of the vax and calling for an end to college vaccine mandates.

“I was a completely healthy 50-year-old person with really no medical problems until about seven days after my first – or I should say one and only Moderna shot – that I received from December 30th of 2020,” he told Rachel Campos-Duffy on Sunday’s “Fox & Friends Weekend.”

“So, I was completely otherwise healthy until seven days after the shot,” Wallskog stressed.

The doctor developed transverse myelitis, a neurological condition that, according to the Mayo Clinic, “is an inflammation of both sides of one section of the spinal cord” that “interrupts the messages that the spinal cord nerves send throughout the body.”

Campos-Duffy noted that “so many other people” have experienced vaccine injuries.

“What happens next?” she asked. “Who takes responsibility for this?”

“What happens is you’re abandoned,” the doctor replied. “You get your shot, you do what you think is the right thing, and you kind of do your part, and then all of a sudden, you’re abandoned. And what I say is a lot of these people that are injured are really abandoned from the standpoint of physically, financially, and emotionally.”

While Big Pharma hasn’t had “to bear the brunt” of vaccine injuries, Campos-Duffy noted, “they made billions of dollars.”

As pharmaceutical manufacturers aren’t required to provide financial support to those who have allegedly been hurt by the vaccines they produce, Dr. Wallskog has set up an advocacy organization, React19, “a science-based non-profit offering financial, physical, and emotional support for those suffering from long-term COVID-19 vaccine adverse events globally.”

The group aims to “build bridges between patients and research institutions in order to develop a better understanding of our vaccine complications.”

“That’s who I fight for,” Wallskog told Campos-Duffy. “I’m fine. And fortunately, I’m financially stable, but I fight for all the people that aren’t. And that’s why I started an advocacy organization to try to help us support them.”

“You know, there’s no pharma fund and there’s a fund called – through the government – called the CICP or the Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program,” the surgeon continued. “But to date, the program has only paid out three claims totaling less than $5,000. And unfortunately, their denial rate for these people that are injured is 96.5%.”

To make matters worse, the doctor said, the effort to censor stories from the vaccine victim community online has “devasted” the cause.

“It’s devastated us,” he stated. “I mean, as you know, through kind of the Twitter files or data dump from Twitter, they even acknowledged in the files that true stories of vaccine-injured people; they were instructed to censor them.”

“And it’s devastating to us because part of it is acknowledgment,” he said. “I mean, with acknowledgment, we can hopefully then get diagnostics and treatments.”

On April 26th, React19 is holding an event at Dartmouth, with all proceeds going to benefit the vaccine-injured.

“Really it’s a discussion about college mandates,” Dr. Wallskog said. “And we hope that all college mandates end because these young people shouldn’t, in my opinion, be getting the Covid shots.”

“I mean, really,” he said, “it’s all risk, no benefit.”
