A mother in Utah is warning parents about COVID-19 vaccines after her 17-year-old, basketball-playing son got a shot, and developed three blood clots in and near his brain.
The report comes from the ABC News affiliate in Salt Lake City.
It is Cherie Romney, of Draper, Utah, who worried over her hospitalized son, and what put him there.
“The hardest thing was I let him get that shot. And he was healthy and well before,” she told the station. “But you question it, you can’t help but question it when it all goes wrong.”
The station explained the competitive basketball “could have possibly aggravated the swelling caused by the vaccine.”
Everest Romney, 17, felt his neck swelling the day after his COVID-19 Pfizer vaccine shot, and he then experienced severe headaches, the report said.
A doctor dismissed the symptoms as a pulled muscle, but Cherie Romney was convinced it was more.
“He could not move his neck without the assistance of his hands,” she said.
She eventually took her son, a Corner Canyon High School basketball player, for tests, and they discovered two blood clots inside his brain, and one on the outside.
He was treated for a time in the intensive care unit, and still remains hospitalized.
Cherie Romney said she wants parents to make the best decisions for their children, and for doctors to understand this new vaccine might bring new challenges to conventional wisdom, according to the report.
She explains with what she now knows, she would have made another decision.
“It was pretty awful,” she said.
