Antoine Méchin: 32-Year-Old Triathlete Suffers Severe Adverse Reaction To Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine, Possible End Of Career

A 32-year-old veteran triathlete is forced to suspend his season after a severe adverse reaction to the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine.

Méchin developed breathing problems and pain in his left arm following his first Moderna injection on June 28th and three weeks later, during a trail race, he had the same issues again. Doctors told him not to worry after an examination on July 18th as he was told that his symptoms were related to ‘stress’ and ‘fatigue’.

The 32-year-old then took his second shot on August 16th just to be able to go to a swimming pool, as vaccination had become mandatory. Around a month later on September 13th, the same symptoms surfaced (shortness of breath, pain in his body). Several tests at a sports clinic in Bordeaux showed that he was suffering from a pulmonary embolism.
