Twenty-two year old Imogen Allen may no longer ride a horse or become a detective after getting injected with Moderna’s Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine. The British woman has suffered from two massive blood clots in her lungs two weeks after her vaccination. Allen will now be on anticoagulant medicines for the rest of her life, and could possibly die from a simple cut or bump to the head.

Allen has represented England in show jumping events since she was a teenager, but the blood clots in her lungs following vaccination have put an abrupt end to this. The two clots in her lungs developed two weeks after getting injected with the Moderna mRNA vaccine. Doctors say the contraceptive pill Allen has been taking for five years could have played a role in the bilateral pulmonary thromboembolism she is suffering from.

Furthermore, Allen’s condition has left her bedbound and unable to return to her regular activities. “I have absolutely no idea what I’m going to do now. Work isn’t even on the horizon. I’m literally in bed every day [and it’s] depressing. I’ve had a massive setback,” she says. The 22-year-old plans to be a detective, but the blood clots she suffered have sidelined this dream.

According to Allen, she first felt breathless while climbing the stairs a day after she gets injected. This continued over the next few days, with the woman feeling exhausted while doing simple tasks. She added that her lungs feel like “being crushed” while sleeping on her side. Despite these, she insists on joining her boyfriend and his family on a camping trip.

Allen continued to feel weak throughout the camping trip, to the point of almost collapsing after walking up a steep hill. She called emergency services and told them about her symptoms, but refused an ambulance. Allen and her partner then drive to the North Devon District Hospital, where doctors revealed the devastating news: There were two clots in her lungs, and her heart was struggling to pump blood around her body.

Doctors informed Allen that she may require surgery to remove the clots and that it could take three months before her breathing normalizes. They believed that Allen being on the pill since 17 has made her more susceptible to developing blood clots. The synthetic estrogen hormone in contraceptive pills made her blood thicker, increasing the likelihood of clotting.

A Coloradan also suffers blood clots from the Moderna vaccine

Allen is not the only victim who has suffered from blood clots following vaccination. A 49-year-old Colorado resident claims the two-dose Moderna mRNA vaccine has caused blood clots to develop on his left leg. Brighton resident Jeff Johnson believes the shot has caused his leg to swell and become painful.

According to Johnson, he initially does not have any issues after he gets injected with the Moderna vaccine. But about a week later – he reports swelling, pain and tenderness in his left leg. He tells local station KDVR: “I was concerned, naturally. I know blood clots are bad and I was afraid to die.”

He then visits the emergency room, where doctors found two blood clots in his left leg. They diagnosed Johnson with deep vein thrombosis, a condition involving the formation of clots in distant blood vessels such as those in the thigh or lower leg. One of Johnson’s doctors cited the Moderna vaccine as a possible cause of the clots in his leg.

Fortunately, Johnson’s condition improved following medical treatment. The 49-year-old Coloradan has been able to return to work, but he hopes that he encounters no other reactions post-injection aside from the clots. 

The experiences of Allen and Johnson contradict claims by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that the mRNA vaccines from Moderna and Pfizer do not cause blood clots. FDA Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research Director Dr. Peter Marks has previously claimed that there have been no reports of blood clots and low platelet count following injection with the mRNA vaccines. 

However, data from the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) tell a different story. From Dec. 14, 2020 to April 1, 2021, VAERS has recorded more than 730 reports of blood clots linked to the mRNA shots. 400 of these are attributed to the Pfizer vaccine, while 337 are linked to the Moderna vaccine.
