Riccardo Ventre: 18-Year-Old Diagnosed With Guillain-Barre Syndrome After Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine, Mother Seeks Answers

The COVID World post date: October 21st, 2021

SAN REMO, IMPERIA – An 18-year-old teen was diagnosed with Guillain-Barre syndrome just 15 days after he had received the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. Riccardo Ventre got the shot on Tuesday, September 28th. He began to have multiple symptoms shortly afterward. He was hospitalized with numbness in his body and was diagnosed with GBS. His mother, Katia, is now seeking answers for her son’s health condition after the vaccine.

“My son had his first vaccination on September 28th for work reasons. Until he was 17, I managed to keep him off the vaccine because I am afraid of it, but then he turned 18 and was forced by his job to take it. He had very strong pain in his legs just a few days later so we immediately took him to the emergency room in Imperia. He has never had any of these symptoms before, it all happened suddenly.”

Riccardo is currently stuck on his hospital bed as he is unable to stand up without support and it is not certain if he will ever recover says his mother:

“They told me anything can happen, it’s a lottery. They told me that in these cases he could end up very badly, that is, he either recovers completely or not at all, so the doctors refrain themselves from giving us a prognosis until they see how he reacts to the treatments.”

Katia, desperate for answers, has also turned to doctors outside Imperia hospital.
