FRANCE – A young boy has lost his eyesight 10 days after receiving the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. Yassine, 13-years-old, got his shot on July 17th, one month after the opening in France of vaccination for minors over 12. A few days after his injection, vision problems started. His eyesight became blurry until he couldn’t see at all after 10 days. Yassine’s case is the first case reported in France of a minor having a strong reduction in vision after the COVID-19 vaccination.
“I was asleep, I then woke up, I couldn’t see, it was blurry,” Yassine said while being filmed for the documentary ‘Children of Freedom’. “Right after the vaccine, he couldn’t see anything. There are no other causes for me than the vaccine,” his mother says. According to specialists, Yassine is suffering from corneal thrombosis linked to the Pfizer COVD-19 vaccine.
The case of Yassine was reported to the official French pharmacovigilance as followed:
“Vaccinated in mid-July with the Comirnaty vaccine (Pfizer-BioNTech), a little over a month before his thirteenth birthday, the patient presented, ten days later, a significant decline in visual acuity. He was then taken care of in an AP-HP establishment. The pharmacovigilance report, sent five days later, establishes that this young patient suffers from acute retinitis (inflammation of the retina).”
A testimony by Yassine and his mother:
Filmmaker Magà Ettori and his daughter Ariakina collected the testimony as part of a documentary that is currently in production, entitled Children of Freedom.
