Dr. Kerryn Phelps, former president of the Australian Medical Association (AMA), stepped forward and told her story. According to her, the serious reactions began after she was injected with the first dose of the Pfizer mRNA COVID-19 vaccine. Phelps added that her spouse Jackie Stricker also suffered from vaccine injuries.
Both Phelps and Stricker experienced burning sensations along the gums and the rest of the face minutes after injection. The former AMA president reported fevers, breathlessness, heart issues and changes in her blood pressure. Stricker, meanwhile, suffered from numbness in her extremities and extended fatigue.
Phelps' vaccine injuries worsened after she was injected with her second Pfizer dose in 2021. She later developed dysautonomia, a condition where the autonomic nervous system (which is in charge of heart function, bladder function, digestion and blood pressure) suffers serious damage.
The physician reached out to the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) – Australia's counterpart to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration – to report the side effects, but received no response. Phelps then reached out to other medical professionals, who affirmed the side effects she experienced. Her colleagues in the medical field noted that their patients also exhibited similar reactions.
Ironically, Phelps was previously a fervent supporter of COVID-19 vaccines for Australians young and old. She appeared in multiple interviews and participated in panels, pushing for the same vaccine that eventually injured her and her spouse. Now that she has come forward with her vaccine injuries, the former AMA president is singing a different tune.
Phelps, who served a short seven-month stint in Australia's federal House of Representatives, also blasted regulators trying to divert the public's attention from adverse health reactions caused by the COVID-19 vaccine.
Moreover, she accused medical authorities in the Land Down Under of issuing threats against physicians who dared to speak out against the COVID-19 vaccination program. These same authorities, she insisted, have also pressured doctors who deviate from the official narrative.
"Regulators of the medical profession have censored public discussion about adverse events following immunization, with threats to doctors not to make any public statements about anything that 'might undermine the government's vaccine rollout' or risk suspension or loss of their registration."

In December, Phelps urged the Australian House of Representatives' Standing Committee on Health, Aged Care and Sport to conduct a comprehensive study of the risks posed by the mRNA COVID-19 shots, which she was injected with.
She pointed out in a submission to the committee's inquiry on long COVID and repeated COVID infections that some adverse events could "cause long-term illness and disability." However, Phelps added that data on these serious reactions was limited because "the focus has been on vaccinating as many people as quickly as possible with a novel vaccine for a novel coronavirus."
The former AMA president recognized the risks of cardiac inflammation linked to the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, but said data on those remain scant "partly because of under-reporting and under-recognition."
"Even then, there has been a misconception that myocarditis is 'mild,' 'transient' and 'mostly in young males' when there are many cases where myocarditis is manifestly not mild, not transient and not confined to the young male demographic."
According to Phelps, "there can be no progress in developing protocols for diagnosis and treatment" until Canberra acknowledges and recognizes post-vaccination syndrome, i.e. vaccine injury.
"People who suffer COVID vaccine injury may present with a range of symptoms, and results of standard medical tests often come back normal. And like patients with 'long COVID,' they too are also asking the medical profession and public health systems for help."
