Virginia doctors refused to treat 8-year-old girl after severe adverse reaction to vaccine

Doctors at Virginia Commonwealth University Health System (VCU) refused to treat an 8-year-old girl experiencing severe adverse events after receiving the Pfizer vaccine.

When the parents inquired about treatment with hydroxychloroquine, ivermectin, or monoclonal antibodies, VCU pediatrician Grace Mueller, MD called Child Protective services.

In an interview with John Davidson, Ryleigh Jones and her parents, Jennifer and Ryan, described the shocking mistreatment they received at VCU after their previously healthy young daughter received a Covid-19 vaccine injection. Shortly thereafter Ryleigh experienced severe adverse reactions that have been increasingly linked to the vaccine and discussed by the FDA and CDC as early as October of 2020.

Her adverse events, many of which are ongoing include: 

  • Wheelchair bound due to complete loss of feeling in her legs, walking only with great difficulty using a cane
  • Feeling like her heart was being ripped out of her chest with a knife
  • Loss of ability to control urination
  • Sensitivity of the skin making it painful for Ryleigh to be touched or lie down  
  • Suicidal ideation
  • Blackouts
  • Rage episodes 
  • Episodes where she is unable to recognize a parent
  • Episodes where she is unable to talk

Onset of symptoms started 8 days after she received the vaccine on January 6, 2022, and two days after Ryleigh subsequently contracted Covid-19.

However, instead of treating Ryleigh, doctors at VCU Health Systems attempted to convince the family that her symptoms were all in Ryleigh’s head, Mrs. Jones says. 

“All you have to do is just say is was the vaccine, and just help me treat it,” Ryleigh says of the VCU doctors. “That’s all you have to do. But no, you want to protect your fricking job rather than save somebody’s life.”

“We had a nurse laugh at us. We had a doctor laugh at us. We had a doctor tell us we were crazy. We had a nurse laugh at my mom,” Ryleigh said, recounting their experience at VCU. 

“Why are you treating human beings like this?” Ryleigh asks. “It makes me very upset that nobody will believe me and just treat it.”

This pattern of diagnosis and personal attack against those reporting vaccine injury is similar to other cases, such as that of 13-year-old Stephanie de Garay and her family, reported on previously by World Tribune, who has experienced many of  the symptoms Ryleigh reports, such as her symptoms of skin hypersensitivity, severe cutting pain in her chest, inability to walk or control urination, and neurological issues.

A prominent New York doctor did diagnose a physical syndrome: chronic acquired demyelinating polyneuropathy, and small fiber neuropathy after anesthesia and Covid Pfizer vaccination. 

That doctor was later professionally attacked for his diagnosis.

“Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy” and “other acute demyelinating diseases” are, in fact, found in the FDA and CDC’s “Working list of possible adverse outcomes” to Covid-19 vaccines presented in two sessions at a joint FDA-CDC conference on Oct. 22, 2020. 

After experience the knife-like chest pain, the family returned to VCU Health Systems, where a physician for pneumonia found on a third X-ray, after other physicians there refused to treat her for chest issues.  

A member of the emergency room staff tried to help further, saying, “You’ve been here eleven times. This little girl is sick. I know something is wrong, and we are not going to let her leave here until we know what is wrong,” Ryleigh’s mother recounts. 

However, when they attempted to escalate Ryleigh’s case, staff seeking a physical diagnosis were shut down by higher ups. 

Ryleigh was then given a diagnosis of Functional Neurological Disorder (FND), which appears to be a vague catch-all for a portion of her symptoms and for which there is no treatment. It means the condition is in her head, a mysterious brain disorder.

Dr. Grace Mueller, MD, a pediatrician, then went even further, attempting to professionally discredit the New York doctor who diagnosed demyelinating polyneuropathy linked with the vaccine. 

When Ryleigh’s parents asked whether their daughter might receive hydroxychloroquine or ivermectin to treat her symptoms, since they arose after she contracted Covid-19, Dr. Mueller then contacted Child Protective Services.

That Friday, the Jones family received a visit from a CPS worker who attempted to get Ryliegh’s mother to sign a contract stating she would not administer hydroxychloroquin or ivermectin to their daughter.

Ironically, hydroxychloroquine, also known as the brand Plaquenil, and ivermectin both have anti-inflammatory properties relevant to Ryleigh’s symptoms of inflammation.

Inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy and other demyelinating diseases feature prominently, as do cardiac issues, convulsions, and even death, in presentations from an FDA-CDC joint conference, the FDA’s 161st meeting of the Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee, which met on October 22, 2020.  

The slides from this meeting are shown below, with the names of their presenters. These precede the December 2020 rollout of the vaccine for adults, and clinical trials for children, by more than a month.
