Two surviving spouses have come forward to describe their beloved mates’ deaths following Pfizer injections.
Our last reporting on heart damage from the shots focused on the increasing incidence in young people. Those mounting injuries and deaths are underscored by the local tragedy of a 27-year-old Port Townsend woman who recently suffered two life-threatening heart attacks just days after injection. The formerly healthy, active woman we called Laura is now living at great risk with acute myopericarditis. (See Young Heart Damaged by Pfizer Vax.)
The two deaths reported here were among the earliest recipients of the mRNA shots, considered to be at high risk for the COVID-19 virus because of their age. Unlike previous contacts who have shared death and injury stories, both spouses have given permission to use their names and photos.
Paula Joanne Larson, 79
On February 18, 2021, Dean and Paula Larson of Port Ludlow both took their first Pfizer shot. Less than two weeks later, on the morning of March 3rd, normally cheerful Paula felt so unwell she told Dean, “I can’t eat. I’m going back to bed.” Minutes later, she called him for help. When Dean reached his wife, he found her fallen beside the bed, unable to get up. “All of a sudden her whole body started shaking and she stopped breathing,” he said.
Dean immediately called 9-1-1. A team of five paramedics arrived within ten minutes. “They worked on her for 35 or 40 minutes,” but couldn’t revive her. The doctor who signed Paula’s death certificate attributed her sudden demise to “heart failure.”
No one involved in this unexpected death asked about Paula’s vaccination status or even considered that the shot she had received just 13 days prior might have been the cause of her heart failure. In the heady early rollout of this experimental injection which the media and our health department incessantly promote as safe and effective, it never occurred to Dean or anyone else at the scene that the shot could be responsible.
It wasn’t until Dean had an appointment later that month with his primary care physician that a possible relationship between the shot and Paula’s death was first discussed. Unlike the majority of doctors we’ve heard stories about who insist that post-injection injuries and deaths have nothing to do with the shots — always “coincidences” — this independent physician had been doing his own research. He’d uncovered the same risks and patterns of injury being denied and covered up that the Free Press has been documenting since the rollout began.
Paula and Dean had been his patients for many years. Paula was diabetic, but otherwise healthy. Based on her medical history and what their doctor had uncovered through his research, he was concerned that the shot was responsible for her cardiac event.
“He really researched everything. He showed me articles online, how this was happening all over the world,” said Dean. “He showed me the situation in various states and countries.”
His doctor expressed frustration with the lack of autopsies being done to determine cause of death during this vaccine rollout. “That’s a problem with the medical industry,” Dean’s doctor told him.
Mayo-trained Pathologist Dr. Ryan Cole agrees. Coroners are routinely refusing to conduct autopsies on those who have died following Covid vaccination, even when M.D.s order them:
“How can we do science if we’re not looking? When you do an autopsy, you get all the tissue… and you get all the answers, too.… They’re saying: Don’t autopsy that. It wasn’t the vaccine. Don’t look here… Is this science anymore? NO.”
As reported in an earlier article, it was a German report that gave us the “First case of postmortem study in a patient vaccinated against SARS-CoV-2.” The researchers discovered that every single organ of the deceased person’s body had become infested with spike proteins as a result of the vaccine.
Dr. Cole, whose pathology lab is one of the largest in Idaho, has been sharing his findings from tissue samples and other imaging taken post-vax. In presentations at conferences like the White Coat Summit, he displays slides showing the serious damage to heart, lungs, kidneys, liver, brain, testes, ovaries and more following mRNA injection.
“There’s no such thing as ‘mild‘ myocarditis,” says Dr. Cole. “When the heart is inflamed, that is a serious condition for a long time.”
Our second story is more complex, involving a pre-existing heart condition and far more time elapsed between the shots and heart failure.
James Makinson, 68
Just-retired chef Jim was “in great health — active and strong,” according to his wife Michele. He was delighted to have the time after retirement to focus on projects around their property in Kingston. He ate a healthy diet, didn’t drink, and had only one medical issue, a heart arrhythmia that led to getting a Pacemaker two years ago. The device was faulty, not functioning at all when the experimental mRNA shots were rolled out. Jim decided to wait until after he got the jabs to have it replaced.
He got his first Pfizer shot in January and the second in mid-February. Then, at the beginning of March, Jim got his new Pacemaker, one of the best available. “The surgeon [who replaced the faulty one] said his heart was in great shape,” Michele told me. “He said Jim had another 20 or 30 years,”
It wasn’t until July that something seemed off to Michele. “His skin tone changed; it was gray.”
Then in early August, he began sweating profusely. On the morning of August 8th, Michele found him lying on his side in bed, unresponsive. He had died in the night.
“I’m totally haunted by his death happening so unexpectedly,” Michele wrote. “What a shock.”
Like the Larsons’ doctor, Michele had also been doing research on the experimental injections. She herself had suffered from adverse reactions following her Pfizer shots. Echoing stories we have heard from others, an old injury was reactivated after the jabs. By June, she began to have painful arthritis in her hips. Her hip pain progressed so rapidly that by July she needed walking sticks. As doctors and scientists have warned, damage from the toxic spike proteins produced by the shots may be far worse over time than the immediate reactions so many are reporting.
While the couple resided in Kingston, Michele has commuted to Jefferson County for work and continues to use health practitioners here. With help from a Port Townsend acupuncture clinic for her adverse reactions, as well as beneficial supplements, her issues have diminished but have not resolved.
Jim was not so lucky. His unexpected death, six months after the Pfizer shots, didn’t make sense to Michele. With a new Pacemaker and no other health issues, why did he suddenly die in his sleep? Michele’s primary care physician insisted the shots had nothing to do with it. So Michele took it upon herself to get an autopsy. She paid $3500 to find out what caused her husband’s death.
It took three months to get the results. The autopsy confirmed Jim’s overall good health and concluded that he had suffered a heart attack: “This 68-year-old man, James Makinson, died from an acute myocardial infarction.” It identified atherosclerosis and an “enlarged heart” as the culprits. The Pacemaker was intact and functioning.
Could his Pacemaker have caused this? Older-style devices have been known to cause heart failure. But they do not cause the heart to enlarge or the arteries to narrow. According to his surgeon, Jim’s heart was not enlarged when the device was implanted five months before his death. With no cardiac issues other than arrhythmia, and that function restored by his new Pacemaker, the surgeon foresaw decades of solid performance ahead for Jim’s heart.
Did the shots cause his enlarged heart and artery constriction? As described by Dr. Cole above, evidence is mounting that the spike proteins generated by the mRNA shots are causing severe inflammation in blood vessels and organs — especially the heart — leading to clotting, swelling, scarring and irreversible heart damage.
The slides below show heart tissue damage due to inflammation. “That’s scars starting to form, and that scar [remains],” says Dr. Cole. “It messes up conduction pathways, can cause chronic heart failure over time.”
The recent study featured at the American Heart Association’s annual conference found that risk of heart attacks and other coronary problems more than doubled within months after mRNA injections. The abstract noted: “At the time of this report, these changes persist for at least 2.5 months post second dose.” How far out they persist is still unknown. This global experiment is still fresh; the worldwide Phase 3 clinical trials foisted on the masses won’t conclude until 2023.
While a heart attack occurring months after the shots does not offer as clear an association as those within days like Laura’s or Paula’s, many doctors and scientists are warning that the toxic spike proteins can continue to damage organs and blood vessels over months, possibly years. They say that the real fallout from this unprecedented medical experiment will likely not be determined for some time.
Jim’s untimely death may be a harbinger of delayed reactions to the shots that we are just beginning to see.
Another example of such a delay happened to a healthy 72-year-old Port Townsend man who I spoke with recently. He received both Pfizer shots in March, and he, too, is now facing medical issues that didn’t start manifesting until this autumn.
“I had an EKG in October 2019, which was 100% normal. A subsequent EKG during 2021 after having received the Pfizer jab flagged a rhythmic irregularity.”
Six months after his shots, he began experiencing palpitations and neuropathy. His doctor decided to take another look at his heart.
“In the fall of 2021, an Echo-Cardiogram (ECG) was ordered, which revealed an enlargement of the right ventricular heart muscle. No prior indication of that outcome.”
He had no heart issues before the shots and now his ventricular muscle is enlarged. He feels its effects. “The association with the Pfizer jab is circumstantial, but in my opinion, it definitely seems related.”
Paula and Jim were both elderly, their deaths easily dismissed by skeptics as casualties that happen due to age. But even in the young, post-vax injury and death is being normalized. Since our last report, heart damage from the shots in young people has continued to rise, most shockingly in pro athletes in peak physical condition.
The number of athletes collapsing and dying post-vax has climbed to 335 Athlete Cardiac Arrests, Serious Issues, 190 Dead, After Covid Shots. Prior to the vaccine rollout it was a rare occurrence for one of these uber-healthy competitors to suddenly collapse on the field, let alone die. As seen in the graph below, the incidence of these adverse events has grown with each passing month since the shots were rolled out.
The website linked above provides a regularly-updated month-by-month compilation of every athlete reported to collapse, with all information known about their vax-associated injuries/deaths. Most have suffered cardiac arrest, but injuries also include blood clots (or thrombosis), stroke, irregular heartbeat, and neuropathy. More than half of these athletes, including teenagers, have died. Those deaths include a 12-year-old Italian female tennis player, a 13-year-old male football player in Nevada, a 15-year-old male German goalkeeper, a 12-year-old male basketball player in Pennsylvania, a 14-year-old male hockey player in the Netherlands, and most recently a 15-year-old male wrestler and football player in Ohio.
Nearly unheard of pre-2021, since this mRNA experiment began, youthful heart issues and deaths are becoming commonplace.
Even more damning than the new report showing heart attack risk doubling post-vaccination and the growing list of athletes collapsing, are Pfizer documents just obtained through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.
Public Health and Medical Professionals for Transparency (PHMPT) was formed specifically to “obtain and disseminate the data relied upon by the FDA to license COVID-19 vaccines.” On August 27, 2021, four days after the Pfizer vaccine was approved for ages 16-plus, this nonprofit organization (comprised of public health and medical professionals, scientists and journalists) submitted a FOIA request to the FDA for all of the data within Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine biological product file.
When no response was forthcoming, on September 16th PHMPT sued the FDA for the information. The lawsuit “asked that this information be disclosed in 108 days – the same amount of time it took for the FDA to review and license Pfizer’s vaccine.”
In a response that beggars belief, the FDA first requested until 2076 to release this data — not to analyze it, but to simply release it. Then in a brief last week, the FDA extended that time line to 2096, a 75-year delay. They disclosed that the documents they ostensibly reviewed before approving the shots amount to 451,000 pages.
An initial 12,000 pages have been released by court order. Within those pages are the results of the first three months of Pfizer mRNA vaccine trials.
Pfizer’s internal adverse events data from December 1, 2020 through February 28, 2021 reveal:
- Of 42,086 adverse event cases in that initial 3-month period, 13,104 — 31 percent — either died or had a long-term, permanent side effect following injection from which they hadn’t recovered.
- In that group of 42,086, there were 1,223 deaths.
- Of 274 pregnant women who reported adverse events, 75 of them — 27 percent — were significant, including miscarriages and stillbirths.
- Of 133 breastfeeding mothers, 13 percent of their babies had an adverse event from exposure to the injection through breastmilk.
- 34 children under the age of 12 inadvertently received the injection (that age group was not supposed to be included in the trials). 24 of those 34 children — 70.6 percent — had serious side effects, 13 of them “unresolved.”
“This is irrefutable evidence from Pfizer themselves that this shot is dangerous,” says Alberta doctor Daniel Nagase who presents the above trial data in an interview with the Canadian Western Standard.
What will the other 439,000 pages reveal over the next 75 years?
In 1976, trials of a new Swine flu vaccine were halted in nine states after three people died. At 32 deaths, the program was dismantled nationwide. Pfizer’s own reports documenting 1,223 deaths over three months following the Covid mRNA injection were released to the FDA and other regulatory agencies on April 30, 2021. Incontrovertible proof of its dangers were known last spring, but not shared with the public. Rather than put an immediate halt to this travesty, the FDA then approved the shots for 5 to 11 year-olds in a unanimous vote (with one abstention), and are now going after the 6 month to 5 year-olds.
In 1976, there was no shortage of corruption in government, regulatory agencies and media. Over the last half century pharma’s capture of these groups — along with medical schools and the health-care industry — is complete.
In October 2021, after supposedly having access to the damning Pfizer data we are only beginning to get glimpses of, and after many hours of cautionary “these shots are dangerous, don’t do this to the kids” testimony — the FDA Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee voted to approve the jabs for our children.
They ignored testimony like that of Steve Kirsch, Executive Director of the COVID-19 Early Treatment Fund, who asked: “Why are kids dropping like flies after getting vaccinated? Why didn’t the highly unusual causes of deaths in these kids raise any red flags? How can a kid who was in the Pfizer 12-15-year-old trial be paralyzed and not have that reported in the trial report to the FDA? Why are there no autopsies for death after vaccination? How many Americans have to die before you pull the plug?… Of the over 1,200 comments that have been posted against the vaccines in kids, I found only one in favor.” (4:23:12)
Viral Immunologist Dr. Jessica Rose testified: “Within eight weeks of the Covid-19 rollout for 12 to 15-year-olds, there were nineteen times the expected cases of myocarditis reported over background rates in this age group… What will happen in children aged 5 to 11? Where is the safety data?” (4:30:00)
Most of the 18 “experts” on the committee who voted to inflict this shot on our children have deep industry ties. One of them summed up the committee’s attitude before the vote: “We are never going to learn how safe this vaccine is until we start giving it.” (6:34:46)
How have we come to this? Over these nearly fifty years, propaganda techniques have been perfected to create what Belgian psychologist Dr. Mattias Desmet calls “mass formation” — a kind of mass hypnosis/psychosis. Advances in propaganda delivery through new technologies, combined with total media control, have enabled pharma to create false narratives that completely saturate public perception and eliminate critical thinking.
But for those breaking free of the hive mind, it’s getting increasingly hard to trust our industry-captured regulatory agencies, our local health authorities who parrot their lies, and our politicians who rubber-stamp their edicts.
