Karolina Stancik joined The Gateway Pundit’s Twitter Space on January 25th to discuss the military vaccine mandates and share the heartbreaking story of the vaccine injury that resulted from the mandate.
Karolina is a 23-year-old athlete, patriot, and Christian who joined the military because of her desire to serve her country and to help others.
Her GiveSendGo shares, “In order to serve, she took the COVID-19 vaccine, but tragically, her life has been permanently altered because of it. After two doses of the Moderna vaccine, Karolina has had two heart attacks and a mini-stroke, and she suffers from multiple other ailments and complications because of the vaccine.”
“The future of her health is uncertain.”
“Now, TRICARE, the military medical system, is not paying her medical bills, and she stands to face more than $35,000 in medical debt on top of the tens of thousands in treatment and travel costs that will be required to get her the proper medical care to hopefully recover fully.”

I joined the military because I wanted to serve and protect those who cannot do it for themselves. In order to serve, I was told I had to get the vaccine. I was hesitant because I was uncertain if the vaccine was even safe. I was a healthy 21-year-old woman in the best shape of my life, and I have never had a single medical condition. I decided getting the vaccine was the right thing to do, but now my life will never be the same. I have an enlargement in my heart, two heart attacks, POTS, asthma, allergies, nerve problems, and I suffered from a stroke. I have dealt with 9 ER visits, 5 Holter monitors, 5 doses of beta blockers, and pain medication. I am just a 22-year-old balancing the weight of $35k in medical bills while fighting to get healthy, and the military is completely uninterested in helping me.
Shortly after I received the first dose, I experienced massive headaches, pressure in my head and sinuses, soreness, fatigue, and dizziness. I was oblivious as to what this could be because I was a fully healthy individual. I thought it was something I could shake, but the next day, the symptoms did not subside. I was sent home because I was unable to do my duties with “covid symptoms” and I was told ‘it’s not that uncommon to have fleeting side-effects.”
After the second dose, more symptoms manifested. The same day, I was playing the role of a casualty for others to learn combat care routines. As part of the training, someone took my pulse and noticed that it was abnormally high. I was dizzy. I had pressure in my chest. Sore. Coughing. High heart rate. Later that evening, I experienced a fever. To this day, it is the only fever I have experienced. I was in bed, barely able to move, with numbness, pressure, headaches, and nausea. It seemed absurd for me. That was never something I experienced for 21 years of my life. Infact, I have never developed any serious health conditions.
Two months after the second dose, I was treated for a respiratory infection and tested negative for covid every time they ran a test. It worsened over the next 10 weeks, and I noticed that I was becoming more and more short of breath from something as simple as lying down. In September, conditions were exasperated, and I began coughing blood with dizziness, headaches, and a high heart rate. My pain was intolerable, and I could not sleep. It felt like a 45-pound plate was sitting on my chest and at this point fear was overwhelming. I was treated for fractured ribs, and asthma even though I had no medical diagnosis for either condition.
A month later, I began to experience what felt like a balloon in my chest. It felt like a balloon that would blow up and push against my sternum. When that occurred, I would get dizzy and lose feeling in my limbs. The balloon sensation would deflate slowly, and I would lose my vision. This became consistent. I went to the clinic and was told to come back another day because it was too busy there. I was forced to go to the ER, which I have never been to. When I arrived, they put me in a triage, checked my vitals, and ran an EKG. I was shocked to learn I had experienced a heart attack.
After the heart attack, my symptoms grew even worse. I went to the ER in October, December, January, February, April, June, and July. I could not breathe, my heart was weak, and I feared for my life. I was diagnosed with severe asthma, and I was prescribed a Holter monitor. Doctors discreetly addressed the loss of feeling I would experience. I went to countless appointments, and nothing resolved. Lab tests showed I suddenly developed allergies to everything from cats to pollen and ragweed. In 21 years of life, I had never experienced allergies before.
Throughout January and February, I was in and out of the ER with the same symptoms that were gradually worsening. I was then told about a diagnosis of POTS (Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome). All my EKGs in every ER visit came back abnormal. One night, I woke up around 11 pm and stood up to use the bathroom with a 167-heart rate. The pain in my body was excruciating. I experienced what felt like being stabbed, extreme nausea and vomiting, and I blacked out. I was admitted the rest of the weekend and slept for almost 5 days straight after. I was transferred to Virginia to seek out additional medical attention. I just wanted to go home and get better. I saw my first cardiologist, allergist, and pulmonologist. It was reiterated that I was allergic to everything. They increased my medication for asthma, and I developed an enlargement in my heart. I learned I had another, more severe, heart attack.
Most recently on November 20, I experienced a loss of vision, motor function, and high blood pressure. I was admitted to the ER again and I learned I had suffered from a stroke on top of my other serious issues.
To this day, I experience pain, discomfort, numbness, and asthmatic complications daily. I have been prescribed multiple medications. One causes depression and worse palpitations without resolution. It feels like a permanent and confusing battle. My cardiologist confirmed that I cannot receive any more vaccines and that the covid shot is the reason for these medical complications. As of now, I have a heart enlargement, POTS, asthma, allergies, and nerve problems.
Throughout this entire agonizing process, I have received no help from the military. I have not been given the necessary paperwork or due process to be reimbursed for my medical bills, even though I took this vaccine as a requirement for my service. I was even accused of insubordination for following my doctor’s own orders during a physical training event. I have been met with hostility, indifference and dismissal by the people who are supposed to be taking care of me.
These vaccines are not worth it. I am living proof of it. It feels like the military has completely abandoned me and told me “You are no good”. I have had medical documents deleted from my files. I have been told to “quit bitching”. Numerous, essential medical evaluations have been canceled without explanation, and I am not alone. Our military is not protecting those with vaccine injuries, and we are being forced to pay with our own health to continue these vaccine mandates. I joined the military to protect and serve, but the military is not protecting and serving its own.
