A 42-year-old mother of two shared that she experienced confusion and leg paralysis within hours of receiving a COVID shot, and has been suffering severe neurological issues ever since.

Wheelchair-bound Mona Hasegawa said during Tuesday’s Real Not Rare rally on the steps of the Supreme Court that she received a Pfizer shot because she wanted to “do [her] part to help the community stop COVID,” and in order to see her father, a dialysis patient.
“My father who lives in Canada is at high risk and I thought the best thing to do was to get vaccinated due to the fact that the media and medical professionals were saying it was safe and effective. To my knowledge at the time, the only side effects were flu-like symptoms,” she shared in her written story.
She received her “first and only” Pfizer dose on April 24. Within hours, while at a local restaurant, Hasegawa wrote:
“I suddenly felt confused, my mind froze and I couldn’t move my legs. My daughter had to hold my hand to help me leave the restaurant. I went home the next couple of days and had flu-like symptoms, but I also experienced extreme pain in my back, hips and thigh area. Even though I was feeling like this, I still pushed myself to continue my days in a normal fashion.”
Hasegawa wrote that the Saturday after the jab, she “experienced severe weakness and collapsed in the mall,” and an ambulance was called to take her to the hospital.
She shared at the rally that since receiving the jab, she has experienced “memory issues, brain fog, seizures, pain in my head, pain in my back, shaking issues, [and] twitches.”
“I’m asking for help. I’ve been ignored by doctors,” she continued.
She said she has been in the hospital several times, and undergone scans and a spinal tap in hopes of better understanding what happened.
Hasegawa wrote that she has “had at least 30 visits with doctors and specialists over a six-month span of time.”
“When I tell doctors that I think I got this from my COVID vaccination, they tell me it’s psychological, they send me home,” she explained at the rally.
Hasegawa said that at one point shortly after she left the hospital, “I wasn’t prepared not to be able to walk, so I got on my hands and knees and crawled up the stairs to get in my home.”
“My daughters had to wrap me in a bed sheet to drag me to get to where I need to go, because I couldn’t walk and I didn’t have a wheelchair or walker at the time,” she recounted.
“I’m just asking for there to be more research done before anybody’s vaccinated and before the kids are vaccinated. Because if I’m having a hard time dealing with this physically and mentally, how are the kids gonna deal with this?”
Hasegawa is part of a support group of those injured by the jab, and said “there are thousands of people that are suffering” like she is. “A lot of the people in the group are very suicidal right now,” Hasegawa said.
“And so I’m trying to speak up for all of the people that have lost their lives. In the future, I’m hoping that they are strong enough to survive this.”
