What is COVID Vaccine Injury?
COVID vaccine injury is a term used to describe any adverse event that occurs after receiving a COVID-19 vaccine. These events can range from mild to severe, and can affect different parts of the body.
Many people experience short-term vaccine side effects, like pain, redness, and swelling at the injection site or even headache, fatigue, muscle pain, chills, fever, and nausea. For many people, these types of reactions clear up relatively quick. However, some people may experience more serious reactions after COVID-19 vaccination. These can be broken down into two categories:
- Anaphylaxis, a severe type of allergic reaction that can cause difficulty breathing, low blood pressure, and loss of consciousness.
- Thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome (TTS), a condition that involves blood clots with low platelets.
- Myocarditis or pericarditis, inflammation of the heart muscle or the lining around the heart. The symptoms include chest pain, shortness of breath, and palpitations.
- Dyspnea (shortness of breath)
- Post-exertional malaise and/or poor endurance
- “Brain fog,” or cognitive impairment
- Chest pain
- Heart palpitations
- Tachycardia (racing heart)
- Arthralgia (joint pain)
- Myalgia (muscle pain)
- Paresthesia (altered body sensations)
- Abdominal pain
- Insomnia and other sleep difficulties
- Impaired daily function and mobility
- Rash (hives)
- Mood changes
- Anosmia (loss of smell)
- Dysgeusia (loss of taste)
- Menstrual cycle irregularities
Some people may have a higher risk of developing vaccine injury due to their medical history, genetic factors, or environmental exposures. For example:
- People who have had COVID-19 before may have a stronger immune response to the vaccine and experience more side effects.
- People who have underlying conditions that affect their blood vessels, such as diabetes, hypertension, or obesity, may be more prone to vascular damage from the vaccine.
- People who are exposed to toxins, pollutants, or stressors that impair their blood vessel function may have a lower tolerance for the vaccine.
The Importance of Blood Vessel Health
Your blood vessels are the tiny tubes that send oxygen and nutrients throughout the body. The endothelium is the inner lining of your blood vessels. It plays a vital role in regulating blood flow, blood pressure, inflammation, clotting, and immunity. It also produces nitric oxide (NO), a molecule that helps relax and dilate your arteries. When your endothelium is healthy, it can respond to changes in blood flow and oxygen demand by adjusting the diameter and tone of your arteries. This ensures adequate blood supply to your organs and tissues.
However, when your endothelium is damaged or dysfunctional, it can become stiff, inflamed, or leaky. This can impair your blood circulation and increase your risk of cardiovascular diseases such as heart attack, stroke, or peripheral artery disease. Endothelial dysfunction can be caused by various factors such as aging, smoking, diabetes, hypertension, obesity, infection, inflammation, oxidative stress, or genetic mutations. It can also be induced by certain medications or vaccines that trigger an immune response or cause oxidative stress.

COVID Vaccines and Blood Vessel Health
Let’s think about how COVID vaccines can cause such a wide variety of symptoms. Since your body needs blood flow to transport oxygen and nutrients, a disruption will impact any and every system of your body. This leads to the huge list of possible symptoms that people experience with COVID vaccine injury. COVID vaccine injury can affect your endothelial function in two ways:
- By exposing you to spike proteins that can bind to your endothelial cells and cause inflammation or damage. Spike proteins are part of the coronavirus structure that help it attach to human cells. They are also used by some COVID-19 vaccines (such as mRNA vaccines) to stimulate your immune system and produce antibodies.
- By triggering an immune response that can cause excessive inflammation or clotting in your blood vessels. This can happen when your immune system overreacts to the vaccine or when your antibodies cross-react with your own tissues.
Both mechanisms can result in reduced nitric oxide production, impaired vasodilation (blood vessel expansion), increased vascular resistance, and decreased blood flow. This is what happens to lead to such a diversity of negative symptoms.
Identifying COVID Vaccine Injury
As many people know by now, finding direct evidence for COVID vaccine injury is difficult. There are blood tests that show changes in inflammation, but these can be difficult to access outside of research studies. Luckily, there is an alternative! The EndoPAT is a revolutionary device specially designed to identify endothelial dysfunction. As we’ve discussed already, COVID vaccines will cause endothelial dysfunction, making the EndoPAT the perfect tool to identify COVID vaccine injury.
Here at Synapse, we own one of the only easily available EndoPAT devices in the country. Most of these devices are owned by universities and research hospitals, making it difficult for the average person to access. We are opening up our EndoPAT to anyone worried about COVID vaccine injury.
The process is simple. First, use the form on this page to set up a free call with one of our team members. They will get you set up with the EndoPAT test, which will be performed here in our office. The visit takes less than an hour. After we process your results, you’ll have a visit with an expert functional medicine provider to go over your results and discuss recommendations and possible next steps based on your results.
Don’t wait until it’s too late. Schedule your EndoPAT test today and take charge of your health!
