SAINTES, CHARENTE-MARITIME – A 32-year-old veteran triathlete is forced to suspend his season after a severe adverse reaction to the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. Antoine Méchin received his first dose on June 28th and his second on August 16th. He suffered shortness of breath and low-back pain shortly after. Several tests have shown that he is suffering from a pulmonary embolism as a result of the vaccine.
Antoine developed breathing problems and pain in his left arm following his first Moderna injection on June 28th. 3 weeks later, during a trail race, he suffered from the same pain in his left arm and from shortness of breath he explained in a Facebook post. Doctors told him not to worry after an examination at Saintes Hospital on July 18th as he was told that his symptoms were related to ‘stress’ and ‘fatigue’.
He took his second Moderna shot on August 16th – to be able to go to a swimming pool – where vaccination became mandatory. Around a month later on September 13th, the same symptoms reoccurred (shortness of breath, pain in his body). Several tests at a sports clinic in Bordeaux 8 days later showed that he was suffering from a pulmonary embolism.
“I am now getting treatment and I hope to regain my lung capacity (in 3-6-9-12 months?) Until then: rest and low intensity for several months. Damaging healthy people to preserve the health of the weakest, a choice of backward logic. I would not get vaccinated again if it had to be done again.”
The news comes shortly after French tennis player Jérémy Chardy was forced to suspend his season after a severe adverse reaction to the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.
