Jeff Gastineau – Johnson & Johnson Autumn 2021

Severe Adverse Reaction: Guillain- Barre

Jeff, a Pilot and Flight Instructor at Allen Corporation of America received the Johnson & Johnson Vaccine a few months ago, and within two weeks he had complications that led to the diagnosis of Guillain-Barre Syndrome.

Jeff is experiencing weakness, tingling, pain, numbness, and difficulty moving his arms and legs. Just his normal daily activities, which include walking, showering, and getting dressed, are extremely challenging for him, but Jeff is pushing himself and is committed to getting better as quickly as possible. He is a fighter.

Jeff spends 2-4 hours per day at the gym and at home doing exercises and weight lifting, and he is showing improvement at physical therapy. He and his wife Carla are focused on becoming stronger mentally and physically as they fight through Jeff’s disease.
