A six-year-old boy from Minnesota has suffered life-threatening injuries after receiving the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, reports Alpha News. Milo Edberg, who was alert and walking in early December before he got the COVID shot, is now confined to a hospital bed after he was diagnosed with myocarditis.
On December 10th, Milo received the Pfizer vaccine and suffered breathing difficulties shortly afterward. He was hospitalized two days later at Masonic Children’s Hospital where he was intubated and diagnosed with myocarditis.
He remained intubated for a month and a half and is still in the hospital nearly two months later. Milo can’t sit up on his own and is unable to even swallow his own saliva.
His mother, Carrie, told Alpha News:
“He was perfectly fine and then he wasn’t.”
Milo’s life has never been easy. He was born a micro-preemie at just 23 weeks and has battled chronic lung disease his entire life. Despite his struggles, he learned to walk and his mother said he was alert and expressive in early December when a doctor at M Health Fairview’s Masonic Children’s Hospital decided that he needed the COVID-19 vaccine.
Milo’s mother said she didn’t want her son to get the shot as only three Minnesota children under the age of 10 have died of the virus since the pandemic began two years ago — yet his doctor said that he was at special risk of having a “severe case”.
Ultimately, Carrie abided by the doctor’s recommendation after being told that the shot was ‘safe and harmless’.
“I went against my gut and said OK, do it.
Unfortunately, you can’t go back in time. I support vaccines, but this one has been tough.”
In all of this time, the doctors haven’t been able to clearly explain Milo’s affliction, his mother said.
“They literally have no answers.”
Before the vaccine, Carrie said her son was eating on his own, but now he can’t even swallow his saliva. She said he gained so many skills last year and was doing very well. Meanwhile, the doctors at Masonic Children’s Hospital refuse to bring up the vaccine when talking about Milo’s situation, Carrie reported:
“Milo has had amazing care at Masonic. But it is weird they won’t bring up the vaccine. They just brush it off.”
However, she was able to file her own VAERS report in late January, and Milo reportedly received a 10-15 minute visit from infectious disease specialists who said they would file a report with the CDC and Pfizer early in his hospital stay. However, she has heard nothing about this since.
Fortunately, on the morning of February 6th, Milo left his room for the first time in 50 days to ride a bike to regain his muscle strength:
Doctors haven’t even been able to provide a timeline for when Milo might be able to return home or predict if he will be able to regain any quality of life.
