Autopsy Confirms Woman Died of Allergic Reaction to COVID-19 Vaccine – Family Plans to Sue

After losing a relative to a severe allergic reaction to the COVID-19 vaccine last year, a family from Kansas is planning on filing a lawsuit!

68-year-old Jeanie Evans tragically passed away back in March, only a day after receiving a shot of the Moderna vaccine.

This led to an investigation by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) and the autopsy report obtained by the Topeka Capital-Journal confirmed that Evans died of “anaphylaxis due to COVID-19 vaccination.”

Vaccine-related deaths are really rare but that’s not to say that adverse reactions to the shot have not been reported by the CDC before.

Evans reportedly also had a history of allergic disorder as well as hypertension, environmental allergies, and reactive airway disease.

Furthermore, she had also previously experienced an allergic reaction to Albuterol, a drug that is used to treat shortness of breath and wheezing, as per the autopsy report.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that only 20 minutes after receiving the first dose of the vaccine on March 23, the 68 year old woman began to complain about her airway being obstructed.

That being said, the KDHE did confirm that a woman experienced anaphylaxis while at a vaccination site and that she was taken to the hospital as a result, although her name was not mentioned.

The following day, Evans passed away at Stormont-Vail Hospital “unexpectedly,” as per her obituary.

Like it happens with any death entered into the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), the KDHE soon launched a serious investigation into the unfortunate death.

As you may or may not know, VAERS is a national vaccine safety monitoring system that lets citizens report adverse events, be it anything as harmless as sore arms or as tragic as deaths.

Anaphylaxis is a serious allergic reaction that has the potential of being deadly and the CDC has reported that it occurs in about 5 people out of a million in the United States.

More precisely, since around 251,312,000 American people have received at least a dose of the anti-COVID-19 vaccine, only about 1,256 out of them have experienced anaphylaxis so far.

But in spite of such reactions being so rare, they are still being used as the main argument against vaccine mandates in the United States.

Some of those opposing the mandates are arguing that such cases are simply not getting enough attention in the media while the push for vaccinations takes center stage.

On the other hand, other citizens point out that the risk of passing away from a COVID-19 infection far exceeds the risk of developing any complications from the shot.

One of Evans’ sons, Colt Umphenour, shared with the Topeka Capital-Journal that the family wants to sue for the wrongful death of his late mother.

In fact, last year, they hired attorney Lynn Johnson, but the lawman decided against seeking legal action for his client.

Despite this, Umphenour told the news outlet that the attorney still encouraged him and the rest of the family to pursue the case, so they are currently looking for someone else to represent them in court.
