Colorado Springs Woman with Permanent Injuries Following J&J Experimental Vaccine Stuck with $1 Million in Medical Bills, But Don’t Expect J&J to Pay Anything


With over 4,000 reported deaths and hundreds of thousands of injuries, the experimental COVID-19 jabs have harmed many people.

Yet, you’re censored if you attempt to shed light on the risks of the injections.

When the CDC & FDA paused the J&J experimental vaccine after reports of rare but serious cases of blood clots, that should have been enough to halt the entire vaccination program.

38-year old Kendra Lippy was one of the six cases of severe blood blots that led to the pause.

KRDO 13 shared her story:

Kendra Lippy is 38-years-old and has spent most of her life in Colorado Springs. She made an appointment to get the Johnson & Johnson vaccine in March because she says she wanted to protect her friends and family.

Her vaccine experience was pretty normal for about a week. Then, she started to notice a headache and abdominal pain. From there, she started vomiting. She couldn’t stop. She knew something was wrong.

Her mother took her to the hospital. Doctors worked to figure out what was wrong with her, but she ultimately slipped into a coma. All of her organs failed, except for her heart. Doctors had to remove most of her small intestine, which helps your body absorb nutrients.

Her family began preparing for the worst — they started planning her funeral.

Miraculously, 22 days later, Lippy woke up.

Her recovery was intense. She had to relearn fine motor skills, like writing and using a fork. She had to relearn how to walk too.

Lippy is one of six women across the country who experienced severe blood clotting after receiving the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Their reactions prompted the CDC to recommend a pause on the J&J. The pause only lasted 11 days, but the CDC now warns people about the clotting risk before they get that shot.

Months later, Lippy is still working to recover. She has to rely on total parenteral nutrition (TPN), which is a method of feeding that bypasses the gastrointestinal tract. It means she has to restrict her diet and constantly change the dressing on her arm.

“I’m always going to have this disability, kind of, that’s going to limit to what I can eat and limit, you know, some probably some activities that I can’t do anymore,” Lippy said. “Right now, I know it’s hindering me being able to go back to work, which is what I want to do. I’m not a stay-at-home person. I’m not somebody that’s gonna sit still, it’s just not me. I have to do something.”

She didn’t have insurance before being admitted to the hospital, and while she’s trying to get on Medicaid, Lippy is facing more than a million dollars in medical bills. She’s also limited on what support she can get moving forward.

Children’s Health Defense also reported:

Kendra Lippy was a healthy 38-year old woman — until she got the Johnson & Johnson (J&J) COVID vaccine. Within about one week, she began experiencing headaches, abdominal pain and nausea.

Lippy was diagnosed with severe blood clots that subsequently sent most of her organs into failure. She also was left without most of her small intestine — and with crippling medical bills that she said the federal government should compensate her for.

Lippy’s case was one of the six that led federal agencies to temporarily pause the J&J shot in mid-April. Her blood clots developed in March. She was hospitalized for 33 days, including 22 days of intensive care.

Lippy now is in occupational and physical therapy, and is working to regain basic functions, such as walking 20 minutes at a time or climbing stairs. She had to relearn fine motor skills, including writing and using a fork, and she had to relearn how to walk. She is reliant on total parenteral nutrition (TPN), a feeding method that bypasses the gastrointestinal tract.

“I’m always going to have this disability … that’s going to limit what I can eat and limit … some activities that I can’t do anymore,” Lippy said. “Right now, I know it’s hindering me being able to go back to work, which is what I want to do. I’m not a stay-at-home person. I’m not somebody that’s gonna sit still, it’s just not me. I have to do something.”

Part of her road to recovery includes figuring out how to pay her extensive medical bills, which add up to more than $1 million.

I want to reiterate that Johnson & Johnson will NOT be liable for a single penny of her $1 million in medical bills.

That’s the core of this corrupt system that incentives these experimental jabs, regardless of the health risks for its recipients.

Before the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act, vaccine manufacturers were liable for damages caused by vaccines.

If there were any signs of detrimental side effects, the vaccine would be pulled from the market and investigated more thoroughly.

But not anymore.

Today, Big Pharma companies who develop vaccines have no financial risk if their jabs cause injuries, permanent disability, or death.

The only hope for Lippy receiving financial compensation for her lifelong debilitating injuries directly caused by the experimental vaccine is the Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program (CICP).

And it’s nearly impossible to receive benefits from the system.

In the same article, Children’s Health Defense explained:

The only current option for people who have suffered COVID vaccine injuries is the Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program (CICP), which turns down most applicants. Fewer than one in 10 people receive compensation after applying.

The CICP was created so an individual who experiences a serious injury from a covered countermeasure can be considered for benefits. According to the Health Resources and Services Administration, a countermeasure is a vaccination, medication, device or other item recommended to diagnose, prevent or treat a declared pandemic, epidemic or security threat.

In order to get compensated by CICP, people alleging harm must file within one year of getting a vaccine, according to the program’s website. Administrative staff within the countermeasures program then determine who receives benefits. Staff also review appeals.

As The Defender reported in March, CICP is similar to the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) — the government compensation system set up for non-pandemic vaccines that provides an open court process, compensation for pain and suffering and a longer window to apply.

However, there are important differences between the two programs, which make it more difficult to get compensation through CICP than through NVICP.

For example, while the NVICP pays some of the costs associated with filing a claim, CICP does not — vaccine-injured individuals are responsible for their own attorney fees and expert witness fees.

As reported by Dr. Meryl Nass, the maximum payout under CICP — even in cases of permanent disability or death — is $250,000 per person. Even then, CICP pays nothing until an individual’s private insurance compensation has been exhausted.

How does that make any sort of sense?

In the case of Lippy, her medical bills amass to a grand total of $1 million.

Yet, the compensation program will only payout a maximum of $250K.

But don’t expect the CICP to pay for your legal fees.

If you’re trying to receive compensation for injuries related to the experimental COVID-19 jab, you have to pay the lawyer yourself.

But the red tape only gets worse from there.

From Children’s Health Defense cont.:

The CICP is administered within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), which also sponsors the COVID vaccination program. This conflict of interest makes CICP less likely to find fault with the vaccine, The Gazette reported.

If a CICP claim is denied, the only route of appeal is within the DHHS, where the case is  reviewed by another employee. The DHHS is also responsible for making the payment, so the DHHS effectively acts as judge, jury and defendant.

According to data from CICP, more than 701 claim filings since 2010 have been received from individuals requesting compensation for injuries. Of the 701 claims, only 29 claims were compensated totaling $6 million. Another 452 claims were deemed ineligible. There are 210 cases pending.

As of May 26, CICP had received 152 claims involving COVID vaccines, and 293 involving other treatments, said David Bowman, spokesman with the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration.

The CICP does not compensate anyone for non-economic damages, such as pain, suffering and disfigurement, said Stephen Justino, Lippy’s lawyer.

“It’s a woefully inadequate system,” Justino said.
