"I worried the COVID vaccine gave my husband a stroke. It took a year to find the truth"
Stanford Public Health Professor Gaslights Her Husbands Vax Injury & Strokes
Spoiler Alert: Never take medical advice from Michelle Mello…ever.
Let’s imagine your perfectly healthy loved one received a COVID vaccination and a few days later their first stroke happened. They are now permanently disabled. Would you be able to connect the dots? Would you be able to make the connection between the vaccine and the stroke? Or would you be so brainwashed by every piece of COVID propaganda that you would deny reality and gaslight others into your delusion?
Michelle M. Mello
Meet, Michelle M. Mello — A Public Health Policy Professor at Stanford University. She is responsible for the design, implementation, and evaluation of health policies to improve the health of populations. Despite having no medical training she holds a joint appointment at the Stanford University School of Medicine in the Department of Medicine, among other things.
Michelle also moonlights as an opinion writer for the San Francisco Chronicle. Yesterday, she decided to shill for big pharma and gaslight her pro-vaccine readers with some feel-good news. She discovered that her husband’s vaccine injury wasn’t actually a vaccine injury (yay!) — it was a just a super rare condition that happened two days after his first mRNA vaccine. It totally wasn’t the vaccine because autoimmune conditions run in his family. She is thankful for the vaccines protections.

The story goes like this: A few days after a COVID vaccination, Michelle’s husband suffered a disabling stroke — he had no previous health problems.
My husband can’t watch soccer games anymore, and for a year I wondered if the COVID-19 vaccine was to blame.
His first stroke happened a few days after a COVID vaccination. It flummoxed everyone: He had no previous health problems, and the vaccine he got wasn’t associated with stroke. As a health researcher and vaccine proponent, I had a hard time making sense of it.
Vaccinates Her Young Sons
Despite the possibility of a vaccine injury occurring with her husband, Michelle, the vaccine proponent and health researcher, decided to get her young sons vaccinated.
When his first stroke happened, my husband and I thought we’d never understand why. Still, we got our young sons vaccinated, despite our uncertainty. Since then, I’ve heard from anti-vaxxers who think my husband and I deserve a fiery death for that decision. I’ve also heard from other young stroke victims who reached out to us looking for answers.
Then her husband suffered a second stroke. At 47 years old her husband has now survived two strokes and “lives with a constellation of small, weird brain impairments.”
Now, at just 47, he has survived two strokes and lives with a constellation of small, weird brain impairments.
Michelle, known for her advocacy for vaccines and her expertise as a health researcher, made a significant finding that COVID-19 infection increases the risk of a stroke. This discovery was likely reported by CNN. Based on her discovery, Michelle made the decision to have her husband receive a COVID-19 vaccine booster. Thankfully, he “sailed” though it, and both of them are deeply appreciative of the added protection it provides.
He’s on blood thinners to prevent further strokes and learning what triggers his symptoms and what activities are worth enduring them (Irish punk band on St. Patty’s Day, yes; packing suitcases on the floor, no). He finally got a COVID vaccine booster and sailed through it. It turns out that a COVID infection raises your risk of stroke, so we’re grateful he has that protection.
Michelle’s husband’s second stroke led to a diagnosis of antiphospholipid syndrome - an extremely rare autoimmune disease where the immune system mistakenly makes antibodies that cause blood clots to form. (A documented adverse event post-COVID-19 vaccination.)
Since autoimmune diseases run in her husband’s family, Michelle, the vaccine proponent and Stanford health researcher, without evidence, has concluded it wasn’t the vaccine. That’s how science works, according to Michelle.
This led to a fresh round of tests and eventually a formal diagnosis: antiphospholipid syndrome, or APS. It’s an autoimmune disease in which the immune system mistakenly makes antibodies that cause blood clots to form. APS is rare and can be hard to diagnose, but if you have a stroke before age 50, there’s a 20% to 30% chance you have it.
I’m completely shocked at this article. Her husband had a stroke immediately after COVID mRNA vaccination and was diagnosed with a super rare autoimmune condition that completely fits the risk profile and mechanisms of harm of the COVID mRNA vaccines. And the conclusion Michelle, the vaccine proponent and Stanford health researcher, arrives at is that it wasn’t the vaccine. Absolutely stunning. Pfizer would be proud.
What’s more likely is Michelle’s husband developed APS from the vax which lead to his strokes. APS is a rare autoimmune disorder, currently on the rise in heavily vaccinated countries.
His diagnosis has been like strapping on a headlamp in the woods at night: Things are still dark, but at least we can see where we’re heading.
Michelle should not be a public health policy professor. It doesn’t seem like Michelle loves her husband either. I hope everyone reads the full article, my summary doesn’t even do it justice. Time for another booster?
Is Michelle willfully blind or is it something else?
