Texas Woodland – Teenager Wyatt McGlaun of The Woodlands said that he developed Guillan-Barre syndrome a few weeks after the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Wyatt’s parents said that they did not try to prevent anyone from using the vaccine, but they did hope that others would realize whether this would happen.
“Do your research,” Joe McGrawn said. “This is a personal choice.”
Wyatt said: “Listening to your body is the biggest thing I have learned.”
Dr. Sims said that if an adverse reaction is reported to the CDC, it will be investigated. Wyatt’s family said they did intend to report the matter.
