It comes after four people died and a spate of 153 Utahns reported bad reactions after receiving at least one dose of a coronavirus vaccine.
However, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention assured Americans they have “not detected patterns in cause of death that would indicate a safety problem with COVID-19 vaccines.”
Mother-of-one Kassidy received the vaccine due to her role as a surgical technician for several plastic surgeons in Utah and did so “without hesitation”, according to her family.
She received her first dose of the Moderna vaccine and did not suffer from any notable side effects, except an inevitable sore arm.
But after receiving her second shot on February 1, her father Alfred Hawley told News4SA she “got sick right away.”
Alfred, a retired fighter pilot, explained he was woken by Kassidi in the family home she shares with her parents and 9-year-old daughter, Kassidi Jr. Emilia, known as Millie.
“She came in early and said her heart was racing and she felt like she need to get to the emergency room.”
He said she experienced “soreness at the shot location” before she “then started getting sick, then started complaining that she was drinking lots of fluids but couldn’t pee.”
Kassidi “then felt a little better the next day” and enjoyed a shopping trip with her older sister Kristin, before she began feeling unwell that evening.
Her family was not immediately worried by her condition because “everyone from her work had flu-like symptoms, so we thought that was normal.”
Over the following two days Kassidi remained in bed, before she feverishly woke her father up and asked him to drive her to the ER. After arriving, she began uncontrollably vomiting.
“They did a blood test and immediately came back and said she was very-very sick, and her liver was not functioning,” Alfred recalled.
“It was a total shock and I was even afraid to tell my wife.”
The 39-year-old was then flew to the Intermountain Medical Center in Murray in preparation for a liver transplant to save her life.
Both her parents offered to donate a portion of their liver to save their daughter, but Kassidi’s liver, kidney, and heart had shut down, despite her having no pre-existing medical conditions.
“She was healthy – happy and active. The greatest mom you ever saw in your life and then she was so sick that in less than 12 hours intubated and on life support,” her distraught father continued.
A full autopsy was performed by the Utah State Medical Examiner but the results have not yet been released. Alfred said he” must believe there was something with the shot,” until it is proven otherwise.
But the 69-year-old diabetic still decided to get his second dose of the vaccine, despite “Millie begging me not to”.
Kassidi’s only child will continue living with her grandparents as her civil servant father is a member of the National Guard who often serves overseas.
