The glamorous ex-girlfriend of model Kris Smith has been diagnosed with a rare heart condition after getting the Pfizer vaccine but is still urging Australians to get the shot.
Hannah Scott, an Insights Manager at Network 10 who used to date Smith, revealed on Instagram that she was suffering from pericarditis.
The condition involves inflammation of a sac-like tissue that surrounds the heart that holds it in place and helps it function.
Ms Scott revealed the news in a lengthy post from her hospital bed on Wednesday morning, saying she doesn’t ‘regret her decision’ and ‘doesn’t want to put anyone off getting vaccinated’.
‘I’m not posting this for sympathy and I’m certainly not an anti-vaxxer. I’m pro-choice and my choice was to get the vaccine,’ she said.
‘As a result, I’m in the unfortunate percentile that has been diagnosed with pericariditis (heart inflammation) a rare side effect of Pfizer.’
Channel Seven reporter Denham Hitchcock revealed last month he too had suffered pericarditis as a result of the jab.
