A physical therapist died at her home in January just two days after she received a COVID-19 vaccine.
Haley Link Brinkmeyer, 28, died January 21 after she received an mRNA shot believed to be either the Pfizer/BioNTech or Moderna vaccine, according to the COVID Blog.
The blog, which is operated by COVID Legal USA, aims to publish articles that minimize the effectiveness of masks and vaccines amid the pandemic and helps people file litigation against companies enforcing mandatory vaccine policies.
Brinkmeyer’s death shocked her family, her mother Shauna O’Neill Link told the blog.
In what appears to be a Facebook comment to another user, Link allegedly spread conspiracy theories that the vaccine was created for ‘depopulation.’
‘My 28 year old daughter took the vaccine on a Tuesday and she was dead by Thursday,’ Link allegedly said in the comment, which was shared by the blog.
‘Autopsy shows no other red flags. Corner (sic) has assured us he will get to the bottom of this vaccine crap.’
She added: ‘Anything with Bill Gates or Quack Fauci’s name attached should be a red flag. Depopulation my folks, depopulation. That’s their objective.’
Link’s Facebook account appears to have since been deleted. DailyMail.com has reached out to Brinkmeyer’s husband, Evan Brinkmeyer, for more information and additional comment.
Brinkmeyer met her husband while attending Reitz High. The high school sweethearts were crowned homecoming king and queen and were married for two years.
She graduated from the University of Evansville in 2018 with a doctorate in physical therapy and was a member of AOII Sorority, according to her obituary.
‘Our hearts have been broken upon the passing of Evan’s wife and high school sweetheart Haley Link Brinkmeyer. No words can express the depths of the loss being felt by Haley and Evan’s families,’ father-in-law James Brinkmeyer posted on Facebook.
‘We will put our faith in God to give us strength as we try to understand why. Please pray for Haley and Evan and their families. Lastly if you have kids give them a hug today and tell them you love them.’
The young physical therapist worked at North River Health Campus, a senior living community in Evansville, Indiana, the blog reported.
North River Health Campus posted photos and a message about COVID vaccines to Facebook on January 20, around the same time she got the shot, according to the blog.
‘Appropriately themed “Shots of Hope,” our halls were adorned with all of the colors of the rainbow. Residents and staff alike rolled up their sleeves to do their part to slow the spread of this terrible virus,’ the senior living center captioned the post.
It was not immediately clear if Brinkmeyer received the jab at that time.
According to her obituary, the family asked for donations to The Haley Link Brinkmeyer Foundation – created to provide assistance and medicine for diabetes patients.
News of Brinkmeyer’s death was shared on Twitter by Houston ophthalmologist Dr. Richard Urso.
‘No reason for young people to feel they “need” this vaccine. IFR is extremely low,’ he posted.
Urso, who has been an outspoken proponent of hydroxychloroquine as a treatment, has previously been reported to the Texas Medical Board for using it in patients, according to The Texan – a news site run by a prominent Tea Party activist.
The Texas Medical Board later dismissed the complaint and said there was ‘insufficient evidence to prove that a violation of the Medical Practice Act occurred,’ MedPage Today reported.
His Twitter feed shows that he has also called masks ‘nonsense’ and criticized Dr. Anthony Fauci as well as multiple public health agencies.
