Thousands of people in the U.K. have reported suffering serious adverse reactions to the COVID-19 vaccines. Vaccine Injured and Bereaved U.K. (VIBUK) is a group of individuals injured or bereaved by the Covid vaccines (with medical or coroners’ reports confirming this) campaigning for a change to the current Government vaccine damage payment scheme (VDPS) to create a bespoke COVID-19 compensation scheme that ensures the adversely affected are appropriately compensated and supported. They also want people similarly affected by the vaccines to know that help is available and for their stories to be heard and not ignored. This is Adrian’s story as told by VIBUK and reprinted here. VIBUK can be found on Twitter and contacted here.
VIBUK member Adrian Walker, a married father of two and a grandad from Grantham, was a very fit, healthy and active 47-year-old man. He was looking forward to life returning to some normality following COVID-19 and the lockdowns. Now that a COVID-19 vaccine had been authorised and had been hailed as ‘safe and effective’, life was looking good and finally Adrian’s active lifestyle could return to normal. He had been a sub-four-hour marathon runner, his park-run (5km) personal best was 21 minutes and six seconds and he was a former semiprofessional football referee. He was also a run leader for Grantham running club where he would lead groups of runners, help with training plans and motivate people to start and complete ‘Couch to 5K’ courses who would then often ask about running further. He would then help to deliver a course within the club called ’10 Weeks to 10K’. He was well known in the local community for his hard work and dedication.
Adrian was a self-employed taxi driver and courier. He would transport vulnerable children to and from specialised schools. All the staff were to be offered their vaccines earlier than the rest of their age group and when his turn came Adrian took up the offer; this turned out to be the biggest mistake of his life.
