Health Care Worker in Orange County, California Dies Four Days After Getting COVID-19 Vaccine

Health Care Worker in Orange County, California Dies Four Days After Getting COVID-19 Vaccine

A 60-year-old health care worker died on Jan. 9, 2021 in Orange, California just four days after having received the second dose of Pfizer/BioNTech’s experimental messenger RNA (mRNA) BNT162b2 vaccine for COVID-19. Tim Zook, who worked as a X-ray technician, began complaining of abdominal pain and trouble breathing about two and a half hours after being vaccinated at the South Coast Global Medical Center in Santa Ana on Jan. 5.1 2

Zook was walked to the emergency room by his co-workers. There, a series of tests where conducted and congestive heart failure and COVID-19 were ruled out. “It was presenting as COVID but the test keep coming back negative,” Zook’s wife, Rochelle, said. “They tested him again. No congestive heart failure.”1 2

When she was notified of her husband’s condition, Mrs. Zook reportedly texted her husband, “Should I be worried?” Zook texted back, “No, absolutely not.” Mrs. Zook responded, “Do you think this is a direct result of the vaccine?”2

“No, no,” Zook texted. “I’m not sure what. But don’t worry.2

Three “Code Blues”

On Jan. 7, Zook was put into a medically induced coma and placed on a ventilator to help him breathe. “He just couldn’t breathe on his own, he had stomach problems, he just wasn’t feeling good,” said Zook’s son, Kyle. “He was so bad he told them, ‘put me on the ventilator, I want to live,’ Those were his last words.”3

Zook’s blood pressure dropped and he was subsequently taken to the University of California’s Irvine Medical Center. On Jan. 8, Mrs. Zook received a call from the hospital and was told that her husband’s kidneys were failing and that he needed to be placed on dialysis, that otherwise he would die, but that there was also “a chance he might have a heart attack or stroke on dialysis because his blood pressure is so low.”1 2

Early in the morning on Jan. 9, Zook twice experienced a “code blue,” which usually involves sudden respiratory or cardiac arrest. That afternoon, he suffered a third code blue. “They said if he went code blue a fourth time, he’d have brain damage and be a vegetable if he survives,” Mrs. Zook said. Her husband died later that day.2

What Else Could Have Happened?

Regarding her husband’s death, Mrs. Zook said:

We are not blaming any pharmaceutical company. My husband loved what he did. He worked in hospitals for 36 and a half years. He believed in vaccines. I’m sure he would take that vaccine again, and he’d want the public to take it. But when someone gets symptoms two and a half hours after a vaccine, that’s a reaction. What else could have happened?2

Zook’s death is under investigation, so the official cause has not yet been determined. But Mrs. Zook noted, “The doctors believe that his body reacted to something after he took the vaccine and they called it an inflammatory reaction. It was so intense that it started attacking major organs and he never had a chance to recover.”4

This case has been reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). According to the U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA), “VAERS accepts reports of adverse events that may be associated with U.S. licensed vaccines from health care providers, manufacturers, and the public.”5

VAERS, which is jointly operated by the FDA and U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), was created by Congress under the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 in response to growing public concern about the safety of whole cell pertussis vaccine in DPT (diphtheria-pertussis-tetanus) and other childhood vaccines.6

    If these individuals died right after receiving the COVID-19 vaccinations and the hey had no underlining health issues, isn’t clear evidence that this untested vaccine is to blame for the deaths!!??

      “No underlining health issues”? I hate to be unkind to the man, but look closely at the gentleman’s photo again. I’d bet he had one or more undiagnosed metabolic conditions if the tests were sensitive enough, but no tests are needed to determine he had an unhealthy BMI.

    I think until we know more about vaccines and how they affect us short and long term, that we allow our bodies to fight viruses as best they can naturally or with medications that are well documented and then make sure the person as ALL the information they need on the product before accepting to take it.
    Any individual should be able to reject taking a vaccine if they want and not be in fear of losing their job or any other freedom of movement. Each individual knows best how their body works and how it reacts to medications etc. Not people in some office thousands of miles away.

    To me, it is very deceptive for a company or any doctor especially fouchie to say their vaccine is safe when even one person dies from it. This is not the first person to die from getting the vaccine or being permanently disabled from it. Those things should be made known to the public so that they can make a choice upon whether they want to be one of the statistics or not.

    If the government can be so involved in having people quit smoking or vaping, and put out information on that, why do they keep these things on the lowdown?
    hummm I wonder.

    “Two weeks after getting a first dose of a Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, a 56-year-old doctor in South Florida died this week, possibly the nation’s first death linked to the vaccine.”

    This was early January, after getting the vaccine in December. The doctor started to have symptoms (spots on hands and feet) 3 days after getting the vaccine, and his blood count dropped and would not go up again. Doctors from all over the world were involved in his case.

    Some people have died shortly after the vaccine, and even immediately. But the scary thing is what might happen later, and the cause of those deaths will be said to be something totally unrelated to the vaccine.

    I have no idea what could possibly be going through the mind of anyone who wants this vaccine other than the assumption they don’t know how their bodies work.
    Since even MDs are no longer required to take a basic biochem course, it’s a perfect storm of pure ignorance.
    In the days of AIDS we all talked about our T cells. Now the human immune system is a social construct much like our biological sex.

    Every day there are reports like this and yet most people I know can’t wait to get it. I am so sad to read this. It truly is amazing how his wife can say that he would get it again because he believes in vaccines. Saying anything against vaccines has become so taboo in this country, that even under these circumstances, she can’t say the words-that maybe something is wrong with this one! Unbelievable!

    So, apparently he took something AFTER that vaccine does and that UNKNOWN THING brought on a reaction? Yeah? Right?

    What was that SOMETHING???

    A cup of coffee? A biscuit at morning tea time? A drink from his personal water bottle? Perhaps a piece of fruit?

    What SPECIFICALLY did he take THAT WAS **DIFFERENT** TO EVERY OTHER AVERAGE DAY at his workplace?

    We will have to avoid the blood supply now, because it will be contaminated w the vaccines. If undergoing a procedure it will be necessary to donate your own blood in advance.

    There was recently a $2Billion lawsuit won against glyphosate (Roundup). I heard of it only in passing and have not yet researched it, but my understanding is that it was established that glyphosate exposure can wreak harm upon unexposed grand children thru an hereditary process.

    WHY are TPTB so obsessed that we should take the vaccine? We know it’s not the stated reason, so what is it?

    I agree with J. Hontucan above. There will be many more deaths associated with experimental gene therapies and the overwhelming cytokine storm/systemic inflammatory response induced especially after the second dose. I reviewed the main Pfizer protocol and if I recall correctly, it excluded those with auto-immune disease. Hmmm, I wonder why?

    These people who are dying from the vaccine are perfectly brainwashed citizens.

    Reminds me of an old Chevy sales training commercial from the 1950’s. The dupe, I mean customer who was being sold a car said “Anytime something happened to the car, it was always my fault, never the cars’.”

    These people will never ever blame the vaccine because they are believers in the religion of Scientism.

        Thank you, Redmond H. Handy, but I can’t take credit for the original thought of modern medicine being a religion, Dr. Robert S. Mendelsohn came up with that. He wrote an excellent book, “Confession of a Medical Heretic”. Sadly this is not required reading in med school.

    Please research Sara Stickles, the 28 yo health care worker from Wisconsin who suffered a major brain stem stroke Feb 7, a few days after vaccination. On Facebook, her family reported immediately after getting the shot she broke out in rashes all over her body. Five days later she had a terrible headache, felt unwell, then lost her ability to speak and next lost consciousness. Brain death, taken off life support after organs were harvested for donation.

    Seems like a reaction similar to what the Miami obstetrician experienced.

    The bias and ignorance expressed by so many of the people in this thread is not surprising; but it is indeed reprehensible, disgusting and shameful. Mocking wearing of masks, science, vaccines, buying into conspiracy theories and voting for Trump…all part of the same picture of those who believe and follow false gods, and who have found a “gottcha moment”. More than FIFTY/50 MILLION people since the trial, have been vaccinated with no ill effect….while almost half a million/500 THOUSAND people have died from Covid. This is what Stupid looks like!

      To WTF ~ you are doing just what you are condemning the others for…following their own beliefs. How dare you tell others they are following a false God. I don’t think we should mock those who want to wear a mask, but I highly suggest that you do your own homework about the history of vaccines and I can tell you, you won’t learn what you need to know from the mainstream media or most of your local healthcare professionals. Just because millions have been vaccinated with no apparent immediate reactions does not mean that there might not be some later. When the masses are made to fear something so much, they lose sight of common sense. Just sign me up without doing one bit of research themselves. By-the-way, the President I support is the one who started the warped speed vaccine, but the current President does not give him or his staff one bit of recognition for it. Remember, no immediate effects does not mean an absolute, no ill effect. Millions right now have no idea of future ill effects that will probably never be associated with this vaccine, which by-the-way is not, by definition, a vaccine. If you want real information, you are in the right place, the NVIC. Take some time to educate yourself! My heart goes out to the Zook family, and his wife is probably actually correct because when you work in the healthcare industry, you are mandated to take a vaccine lose your job. Thankfully, this one has not reached that level yet and hopefully, for many it will never. Vaccination, in my opinion, should always be a choice. As for President Trump, I supported him when he was President and I support his efforts now! I believe in the one true God, my Lord and Savior Jesus!

    Ror all of you wanting to rush/can’t wait to get vaccinated for COVID or any other ‘deadly’ disease…of which the common ‘annual’ flu us (it too is a coronavirus strain, just like COVID-19 is)… Let me tell l you a TRUE story as it DID happen to me…
    When I was in the Army my first 3 year tour 1965-1968, and there was NO way NOT to take any shots/vaccines, during the 1966 flu season, EVERYONE was given the flu vaccine. Well guess what…back then the vaccine was made from a LIVE flu virus, NOT like the synthetic chemical stuff they use today…which has NOT been fully tested NOR 100% proven to be effective against the flu. Notice they don’t make any claims that it will keep/prevent you from coming down with the flu or whatever the vaccine is for, ONLY that will (more like ‘might’) or ‘should’ keep you from having too severe a case of it…NOTHING about keeping your from getting it. NO such guarantee exists and NEVER will.

    Anyway, I came down with pretty much ALL symptoms being said to be those of COVID-19 today. I was down sick for a little over a week. I was lucky if I could keep water down, let alone any form of food. My platoon mates brought me fruit and biscuits from the mess hall just so I’d have ‘some’ kind of food to eat. I could NOT get out of bed to make the 529 block trip to the mess hall for any meals. It was pretty much water or any fruit juice (mostly orange juice) they managed to bring back from the mess hall for me. I finally got better, without going to the dispensary…had medics billeted in the same building and on the same floor as my section was, so they looked in on me to see how things were and would have had me taken to the dispensary or hospital, in Frankfurt…I was stationed in Fulda, Germany at the time.

    The following year during flu season, using the same ‘live virus’ vaccine for the flu, one of the medics giving the shots remembered how I reacted the previous year and asked if I wanted to ‘try again’ and I said, ‘NO!’. He shot the serum out on the floor and marked my shot card and medical records as having the flu shot.

    From that time I had the flu and every year since, I have NOT taken a flu shot and have NEVER come down with the flu. Have been around many people during the flu seasons over the years and again, have NEVER come down with the flu….and it is/was just as DEADLY as the COVID-19, but we didn’t have to hunker down and ‘hide’ from something we can’t see in guaranteed conditions like we are now with the COVID-19 just because some idiots on the news say we should?? COME ON!!! How ‘sheep-like’ can you get. If they said the cure for it was to fun off the edge of a cliff, would you do it?? Many of you, I think, would. That’s just how gullible so may of you today are. Government knows best. NEWSFLASH!!! Government knows NOTHING about how to take care of the family. That is the ‘family leaders’ job and last I looked the government is NOT either of my parents. I don’t need the government, but they need me…for the money they can extort from me that they call ‘taxes’. What taxes?? The IRS was un-Constitutionally brought into p-lace by a improper forum (did not have the needed number or members to hold one) and the vote rushed through by…guess who?…ALL Democrats during the 1913 Christmas break. Before then there was no such thing as ‘Individual Income Tax’ and the National Debt was in the BLACK…WAY in the black; but since then it’s been going deeper and deeper in the RED…Thank you Democrats!!! NO!!! I do NOT need the Government. I can live quite well, and much more happily without them. As we all could if we’d only stick together and be a country for FREE people, NOT a nation of slaves to the government. That’s what is called Communism/Socialism under a Dictatorship. THAT is NOT a FREE Democracy…that is Social Slavery. WAKE UP!! Before you lose what freedoms you do still have and we’re left with NOTHING and NO way to get those lost freedoms back. YOUR CALL…SHEEPLE!!! Choose wisely.
