Family’s agony as dad ‘trapped in his own body’ following rare reaction from Covid jab – The Mirror

A dad has become ‘trapped in his body’ after a stroke caused by the AstraZeneca vaccine.

John O’Neill, 42, from Essex, is one in 50,000 to suffer an extreme reaction to the Covid vaccine.

The IT engineer was hit with vaccine-induced immune thrombocytopenia and thrombosis (VITT) only nine days after he received his first dose in May, the family wrote on a JustGiving page.
