Comcast allegedly has rejected a controversial ad paid for by the Vaccine Safety Research Foundation featuring 13-year-old Maddie de Garay, an Ohio girl whose mother signed her up to participate in Pfizer’s COVID vaccine clinical trial.
The ad shows adverse reactions that occurred after the girl's second injection in January, according to her mother, Stephanie de Garay. She told reporters that Maddie and her two brothers participated in Pfizer’s trials for 12 to 15 year olds. De Garay has said she and her husband are pro-vaccine and pro-science.
Comcast is said to have told the ad's buyer it was rejected because it needed substantiation and all graphic images needed to be removed. Documents reportedly submitted for substantiation included the girl's complete medical records, which are said to have outlined symptoms such as erratic blood pressure and pulse, muscle spasms, muscle tremors, headaches, brain fog, mixing up words, and the inability to walk and cough. She has been admitted to a hospital three times in recent months.
De Garay said she hoped the ad would prompt Pfizer, the FDA, and CDC to at least acknowledge her daughter's reaction to the vaccine.
