Three Utahns spoke to a reporter about the censorship of social media groups that connect vaccine-injured individuals.
Brianne Dressen participated in the AstraZeneca COVID-19 jab trials and felt a tingling sensation down her arm and blurred & double vision the night of her first dose. She reported severe sensitivity to light and sound the following day and consulted medical professionals about the side effects.
Dressen’s reported symptoms worsened the following months, and she developed blood pressure fluctuations, profuse sweating, and brain fog. Her condition reached the point where she isolated herself in a dark room at all hours away from her family, friends, and career.
Dressen described her battle against debilitating side effects, isolation, and regaining a semblance of her regular life.

Three brave Utahns opened up to me about how their communities of individuals with suspected COVID vaccine injuries have been reportedly silenced on social media. I’m honored to tell this story. https://t.co/fV6ZXLwyqn

ABC 4 had the exclusive report:
“My kids were removed from my life at that point,” she remembers. “The suffering was so severe that my son couldn’t touch my hand because my hands felt like they were burning. The sound of their little voices was too painful for my ears.”
Although the CDC has not officially linked side effects like those reported by Dressen to the COVID vaccine, she believes that they are related to the shot.
After she reported motor dysfunction and incontinence, her condition ultimately ended up landing her in the hospital.
Though her symptoms – which she’s documented with the National Institute of Health – have lessened in recent months and she’s been able to resume some elements of her prior life, Dressen felt increasingly alone in her experience during the time period after receiving the vaccine. That is, until she was able to connect with others reporting severe vaccine side effects through social media groups.
“I went through all of this by myself. I was totally alone. I didn’t know anybody else that was having these problems,” Dressen says. “And then I finally came in contact with a few people in the end of March/first of April and I was elated because I was no longer alone. And that’s actually when I was able to make that paradigm shift to not wanting to die anymore.”
Through social media groups, Dressen connected with Nicole Keddington and Pam Warren.
Warren was diagnosed with autoimmune disorder following the Moderna COVID-19 jab and found the right medical specialists through the group.
The Facebook group provided a source of comfort, community, and knowledge that they weren’t alone in battling side effects.
However, keeping the group active has remained a challenge due to Big Tech censorship.
The report later discussed social media censorship of vaccine-related injuries:
Talking with their peers was a source of hope for each of the women, but as quickly as they found the groups and were experiencing a sort of relief, they say the groups started to disappear.
According to the women, community groups and posts were – and still are – flagged by various social media platforms for alleged violations like “false information,” “spreading misinformation” and “dangerous acts.” They say that many of these groups are in their third or fourth iterations due to repeated takedown notices.
Dressen has documented vaccine injury-related content removal on Facebook, YouTube, TikTok, GoFundMe, Reddit and Instagram.
Many social media platforms have some extent of a misinformation policy, which is intended to dissuade and prevent the spread of fake news and conspiracy theories. Most companies use a combination of computer algorithms and human factcheckers to identify and remove false information.
Facebook has invoked a specific set of rules pertaining to COVID-19 information. According to their help center, they are liable to remove “misinformation when public health authorities conclude that the information is false and likely to contribute to imminent violence or physical harm,” According to the same help center article, Facebook is apt to remove content relating to “claims about the safety or serious side effects of COVID-19 vaccines.”
The latest VAERS data passed the horrific milestone of one million reported adverse events to the experimental COVID-19 injections.
Our first tweet was badly worded. We decided to delete it.

Sadly, we passed two milestones on VAERS. Over 1 million adverse events and over 21,000 deaths. 30% of those deaths occurred on day 0, 1, or 2 following vaccination. When will federal agencies start being transparent with Americans? Why do they continue to ignore early treatment? pic.twitter.com/K4DbcOwayo

As noted by the message beneath Senator Ron Johnson’s tweet, Big Tech censorship is out of control.
If you know anyone injured by the experimental COVID-19 injections, ensure they know they’re not alone.
