Jeanie Evans: Kansas Woman Dead Hours After Experimental mRNA Shot

TOPEKA — “Vaccines are the leading cause of coincidences.” That is a meme going around on Twitter. One family is circumventing the inevitable propaganda by stating the facts on their loved one’s obituary.
Ms. Jeanie Marie Evans received the first dose of the experimental mRNA shots against COVID-19 yesterday, according to the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE). It’s unclear which experimental shot the 68-year-old received. But Kansas has very little supply of the Johnson & Johnson experimental viral vector shots. Thus it was most likely Pfizer or Moderna. Both experimental mRNA shots are currently still undergoing clinical trials until as late as 2024.
She received the shot in Jefferson County, Kansas. Ms. Evans immediately suffered anaphylaxis, a severe allergic reaction, during the 15-minute waiting period after the experimental shot. She was transported to Stormont Vail Health in Topeka, where she was pronounced dead. The family immediately published an obituary that states her cause of death.
A KDHE spokesperson said, “Until the investigation is complete, it is premature to assign a specific cause of death.” Ms. Evans lived in Effingham, Kansas. She served on the Effington City Council and was an avid bowler, according to her obituary. Funeral services are Monday, March 29 at Becker-Dyer-Stanton Funeral Home in Atchison, Kansas.
