Elon Musk opens up about ‘major side effects’ from COVID booster, but his cousin had it worse

Billionaire businessman Elon Musk opened up on Twitter early Saturday morning regarding his own troubled experiences with the COVID vaccine.

He announced that he’d contracted COVID before the release of the vaccine and that it’d felt like “basically a mild cold.” He added that he’d gone on to receive the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, as well as the first mRNA booster — both with minimal problems.

The problems didn’t start, he continued, until he took the second booster shot so he could visit Tesla’s Gigafactory Berlin-Brandenburg factory in Germany.

“I had major side effects from my second booster shot. Felt like I was dying for several days. Hopefully, no permanent damage, but I dunno,” he tweeted.

He further noted that his cousin, whom he described as “young & in peak health,” suffered “a serious case of myocarditis” because of the vaccine.

In response to Musk’s admissions, some wondered why he’d pursued the COVID vaccine to begin with given as he’d clearly had natural immunity.

“Why did you [get the vaccine]? All signs were pointing to natural immunity was better even 2 years ago so I just had faith in my body. You’re not in the danger demographic as well,” one Twitter user wrote.

“If You Already Had The Virus, Your Doctors SHOULD HAVE TOLD YOU That Your Natural Immunity Was Fine. Instead They Were Pushed By #BigPharma & #BigGovernment To Give You An Experimental Gene Therapy With Unknown Long-Term Effects THAT YOU DIDN’T NEED!” another Twitter user wrote.

Meanwhile, a whole host of Twitter users chimed in with their own horror stories:

Musk opened up about his own experiences after Rasmussen Reports reported that “68% of 260M Adults (177M) indicate they received the COVID-19 VAX and 7% of those reported major side effects. That translates (177 x .07) into approx 12M people.”

“The CDC says major side effects are ‘rare.’ How many people does CDC estimate had major side effects?” the pollster tweeted.

In response, cartoonist Scott Adams asked, “How do we interpret this?”

And it was in response to this tweet that Musk began writing about his experiences.

All this comes as global establishment “health experts” and “journalists” continue to act as if the COVID vaccine is an infallible piece of technology that never triggers serious side effects.

Meanwhile, in the real world, a Rasmussen Reports poll published at the start of the month found that 49 percent of American adults “believe it is likely that side effects of COVID-19 vaccines have caused a significant number of unexplained deaths, including 28% who think it’s Very Likely.”

“Forty-eight percent (48%) of Americans believe there are legitimate reasons to be concerned about the safety of COVID-19 vaccines, while 37% think people who worry about vaccine safety are spreading conspiracy theories. Another 15% are not sure,” the pollster added.
