CORFU, GREECE – A Greek nurse is now paralyzed after receiving a second dose of mRNA. The 40-year-old nurse is a mother of two and has been a nurse for 17 years. The nurse, whose name has not been disclosed, developed a fever, followed by excruciating pain throughout her body immediately after the second shot. She was rushed to the hospital when she was unable to move or feel her lower extremities.
Michalis Giannakos, President of the Panhellenic Federation of Public Hospital Workers (POEDIN), told Open TV in the East Attica region that X-rays came back clean. The nurse is now undergoing neurological assessments. Giannakos said the nurse “was in perfect health” prior to receiving the second mRNA shot. It is believed that the nurse developed Guillain-Barré syndrome. The neurological disease causes the immune system to attack nerves throughout the body. Giannakos said the nurse is now wheelchair bound.Greek hospital administrator faces criminal prosecution for reporting nurse’s paralysis after second mRNA shot – The COVID Blog
