In 2021 October, in Detroit, after a week of receiving the first dose of Pfizer’s COVID vaccination, Da’Vion Miller was spotted unconscious in his bathroom. He was aware that something is wrong with him, and after two days of getting vaccinated, he started to feel pain in his chest. And also, dizziness, fatigue, and lack of breath.

Miller was sent to Henry Ford West Bloomfield Hospital and the miller was diagnosed with myocarditis. The doctor of his advised him not to go for a second dose of any covid vaccines either it may be Moderna or Pfizer. Miller said ”I was like, that’s crazy.”
