California mother died of Covid-19 after being denied vaccine seven times and treatment with monoclonal antibodies because she had multiple sclerosis

A California mother-of-three died of Covid-19 after being denied vaccine seven times and subsequently monoclonal antibody treatment because she had multiple sclerosissays his family.

Nerissa Regnier, 45, a Mission Viejo real estate agent, died Dec. 16 after allegedly being denied an injection, despite asking for it seven times in six monthsreported ABC 7 Los Angeles.

He was then denied monoclonal antibody treatment after contracting the deadly virus, lawyers for his family said this week. announcing plans to file a wrongful death lawsuit against his health care provider, Kaiser Permanente.

“She was a very healthy mother of three children managing her multiple sclerosis,” attorney Annee Della Donna said of Regnier, who left behind her husband, Devin Regnier, and three children, ages 14, 16 and 19, ABC 7 reported. .

In February, Regnier received a new drug regimen to treat multiple sclerosis, which suppressed his immune system, but when asked about the Covid-19 vaccine, they denied it, because it supposedly contained a “live virus”, the lawyer said.

But that statement is falseAccording to DellaDonna.

"When you're immunosuppressed, you need the Covid-19 vaccine," he said, adding that the woman was told seven times over the next six months that she couldn't get a "live" vaccine.

"They keep telling him no, no, no," Della Donna said.

In August, Regnier asked her neurologist about getting vaccinated and he told her she had to get the shot, the attorney said.

“Two days later, Kaiser comes in for the Covid vaccine and feels symptoms, so they test him and he has Covid,” he said.

The mother of three children was also denied monoclonal antibody treatment after contracting the virus.

Regnier was then given antibiotics as well as steroids, which is not recommended, Della Donna added.

When she was denied monoclonal antibody treatment, her husband got her released from Kaiser's hospital in Irvine and took her to Hoag Memorial Presbyterian Hospital, where he was told it was too late, said Eric Dubin, another attorney for the family. .

He stabilized on Hoag before returning to Kaiser, where he eventually died, according to Della Donna.

“Twice this husband trusted Kaiser for medical guidance and twice they failed him. It is a devastating case,” said Eric Dubin.

Della Donna, who described Regnier as a "healthy mother" who was "very active in the community," said her multiple sclerosis was under control.

“This is a public service announcement. If they tell you that you shouldn't get the vaccine because it's a live vaccine, that's completely wrong," he said.

“And everyone whose immune system is weakened should get vaccinated. That's why we're doing this. We do not want this poor woman's life to be taken in vain," Della Donna added.

“When Nerissa went to Kaiser to get vaccinated against Covid-19, she was turned away, because she had already contracted the virus,” Della Donna said.

"Once ill, Kaiser continued to be medically negligent, failing to give her antibodies within the crucial 10 days and instead treating her with steroids and antibiotics, both of which did not work against this deadly virus," he told Newsweek.

"Everyone should know that Covid-19 vaccines are not live vaccines," Della Donna added.

“We also spoke to the manufacturer of the medication that she was taking, and they said there was absolutely no problem with getting the vaccine while taking her medication.”

In a statement, Kaiser Permanente said: “On behalf of our Kaiser Permanente physicians and caregivers, we express our deepest condolences to the family of Nerissa Regnier on the loss of their loved one. This global pandemic has tragically affected so many families.

“While we cannot comment on the personal health information or the specific circumstances of this case, our physicians and health care professionals are dedicated to ensuring that each individual treated at Kaiser Permanente receives the highest quality medical care appropriate to their situation. ", He said.
