WASHINGTON, DC, NOVEMBER 10, 2021 – Angelia Desselle and Shawn Vidiella are just two of the thousands of victims injured by the COVID-19 vaccines whose lives have been upended. The two moms, both pro-vaccine, are spotlighted in a new television and social media ad campaign that launches today. In an emotional plea (see letter below), they have requested an in-person meeting with both President Joe Biden and Dr. Anthony Fauci, the President’s top medical advisor.
Neither Desselle nor Vidiella had prior conditions before taking the vaccine. Yesterday, Desselle testified in front of the Louisiana state legislature Health and Welfare Board with the Louisiana Department of Health on vaccine injury. Typical of the lack of attention those with vaccine injuries receive, the Director of the Louisiana Department of Health and other staff got up and walked out as Desselle began her testimony.
The educational ads were created and paid for by the Vaccine Safety Research Foundation, a pro-vaccine non-profit with concerns about the COVID-19 vaccine.
“The Vaccine Safety Research Foundation (VSRF) presents the most up-to-date and relevant information on COVID-19 policies free from corporate press, agenda-driven narratives, and sponsorships with conflicts of interest. We encourage questions and an open dialogue of transparency on any medical and scientific information presented.”
Angelia and Shawn’s letter to President Biden and Dr. Fauci is below.
November 9, 2021
The Honorable Joseph R. Biden
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Washington, D.C. 20500
Dear President Biden and Dr. Anthony Fauci,
We represent thousands of Americans who, like us, have been severely injured by the COVID-19 vaccines. We are pro-science. We are pro-vaccine. Most of us have been ignored by the FDA, the CDC, the NIH, vaccine manufacturers, and the media, as if we do not exist.
As two mothers, we humbly request a meeting with both of you in the hopes that an in-person meeting will result in an acknowledgment that we exist and help smash the disinformation echo chamber that the vaccine-injured are not real. Some of those injured are, in fact, children. As parents, we hope that you might be able to relate.
We stepped up to do our part to help put an end to the horrific pandemic facing our nation and the world. We are real people whose lives have been completely devastated by our deteriorating health conditions after we followed your recommendations and trusted the science regarding the safety of the COVID-19 vaccines.
We listened to you, President Biden and Dr. Fauci, as you told us these vaccines were safe. Unfortunately, they were not safe for everyone. We desperately need your help for medical treatment, acknowledgment of the adverse reactions that have occurred, and a plan for prevention so that no one else is forced to live the way we do every day.
Please sit down with us. Review our medical records for yourselves, and let’s get a plan of action together for all those suffering from severe neurological and physical issues because of the COVID-19 vaccines. We deserve quality healthcare. We do not deserve to be dehumanized.
COVID-19 has divided us. We used to stand together as one as a nation, supporting each other. Now, those injured increasingly feel ignored and persecuted. Regardless of your vaccine status, no one should have to suffer the way we have. Please meet with us.
Angelia Desselle Shawn Vidiella
