Comprehensive testing, including repeated spinal taps, showed indirect evidence of the Spike protein produced by the mRNA vaccine in the brain. They found that IgG was directed against the receptor binding domain of the Spike protein in the cerebral spinal fluid and over time the concentrations of this antibody did not correlate with serum levels, suggesting that the Spike protein was indeed in the brain where it would be expected to cause inflammation and cause attack.

In a review article, Sriwastava and colleagues, from the Department of Neurology, Rockefeller Neuroscience Institute, West Virginia University, opined that the seizures were in the realm of neurological side effects of the COVID-19 vaccines. [ii]

Caculini and colleagues, from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, wrote in a 2021 landmark review. [iii]: “Epilepsy is an ancient disease, which has fascinated and frightened scientists and laymen alike. Before the central nervous system was known, seizures were shrouded in mystery. In antiquity, this disease was attributed to gods and demonic possession, which caused those with epilepsy to fear and isolate themselves. Epilepsy patients continued to face discrimination until the middle of the 20th century. This discrimination ranged from lack of access to health insurance, jobs and marriage equality to forced sterilizations. Despite the advances that have been made, there are still many misconceptions about epilepsy in the world. Studies show that epilepsy patients in communities that understand the pathology and cause of seizures generally do better in social and educational environments.”

So, if someone in your circle has been diagnosed with epilepsy or new seizures in the past few years without an obvious source (head trauma, neurosurgery, radiation, meningitis, etc.), ask if they’ve had one of the COVID-19 vaccines.

Vaccination can be quickly ruled out if the answer is “no”. However, if vaccination against COVID-19 is in the medical record, consider this possible etiology of the seizure and take appropriate measures.

Emergency physicians and neurologists should be alerted to vaccine-induced seizures of COVID-19 at initial presentation. Although the prognosis is unknown given the novelty of these genetic products, provided that no more injections are taken, I would expect the attacks to be progressively less frequent, better controlled, and potentially resolve with sufficient time.

Let this be a lesson learned, genetic material loaded with lipid nanoparticles is a terrible concept for a vaccine because it will go everywhere in the body including the brain where it can cause inflammatory injury, disability and unfortunately for some victims – death.
