A 19-year-old teenager from Las Vegas suffered seizures and blood clots after receiving the Johnson & Johnson vaccine last March.
Dr. Simone Gold, the founder of America’s frontline doctors, posted a clip from a documentary on Twitter about the story of a teenager named Emma Burkey, who developed a series of rare health problems following the Johnson & Johnson shot.
Emma says she had to undergo five surgeries in total including 3 brain surgeries with feeding and breathing tubes, as well as overcoming four strokes that affected both sides of her body, 8 News Now reported.
“I had fevers and vomiting. The doctor said it was normal, so we didn’t think any of it,” Emma narrated.

It’s been about 10 months since Emma Burkey, 19 received her Johnson & Johnson vaccine, which she says caused a series of rare health problems.
“I’m very grateful that I was able to get better. The doctors said I was most likely not able to walk at all, now I can walk, not as great as before but I’ll take what I can get,” Emma tells 8 News Now.
She also says she has had to endure five surgeries in total including 3 brain surgeries with feeding and breathing tubes, as well as overcoming four strokes that affected both sides of her body.
She is now on the road to recovery, her weekly therapy has allowed her to stand on her own with the use of a walker and most recently with a cane.
