An Approach to the Management of Post-Vaccine Syndrome

Disclaimer: This document aims to assist healthcare professionals in providing appropriate medical care for vaccine-injured patients. It is important for patients to consult a trusted healthcare provider before starting any new treatment.

This protocol was developed through the collaboration of a dozen world-renowned physicians, including Dr. Pierre Kory and Dr. Paul Marik. The contributions of Dr. Keith Berkowitz, Dr. Flavio Cadegiani, Dr. Suzanne Gazda, Dr. Meryl Nass, Dr. Tina Peers, Dr. Robin Rose, Dr. Yusuf (JP) Saleeby, Dr. Eugene Shippen, Dr. Mobeen Syed, and Dr. Fred Wagshul are greatly appreciated. The feedback from vaccine-injured individuals who shared their experiences has also been invaluable.

While there is no official definition for ‘post-COVID-vaccine syndrome,’ a temporal correlation between receiving a COVID-19 vaccine and the onset or worsening of clinical manifestations is considered sufficient for diagnosing a COVID-19 vaccine-induced injury, especially when other concurrent causes have been ruled out. Since Phase 3 and Phase 4 clinical trials are still ongoing, the full safety and toxicity profile of COVID-19 vaccines cannot be completely determined. Therefore, from a bioethical perspective, any new-onset or worsened signs, symptoms, or abnormalities following any dose of a COVID-19 vaccine should be considered an injury caused by the vaccine until proven otherwise.

It is important to note that there are significant overlaps between the symptoms and features of long COVID/long-hauler syndrome and post-vaccine syndrome. However, certain clinical features appear to be more characteristic of post-vaccine syndrome, with severe neurological symptoms being more common following vaccination. Additionally, the issue of defining post-vaccine syndrome is further complicated by the fact that many patients with long COVID have also been vaccinated.
