Adrienne Pan Illness
She had been battling an unspecified serious illness for months, CBC reported. In April 2021, Adrienne revealed on Twitter that she had Pulmonary Embolism in July 2020. According to Mayo Clinic, Pulmonary embolism “is a blockage in one of the pulmonary arteries in the lungs. In most cases, pulmonary embolism is caused by blood clots that travel to the lungs from deep veins in the legs or, rarely, from veins in other parts of the body (deep vein thrombosis).”
She tweeted at the time: “Officially jabbed! I learned yesterday I am ineligible for the AZ #covid19 vaccine because I had a Pulmonary Embolism in July 2020. I actually qualify under Phase 2B and had no idea. I called around to pharmacies offering Pfizer or Moderna with no luck…#COVID19AB #yeg #ableg.”
She wrote in an Instagram post: “Team Moderna. It is absolutely not lost on me how amazing it is I have a #covid_19 vaccine in my body 13 months after the pandemic hit. I am in awe of all the scientists and health officials who have made this happen.
“I’d also like to shout out the pharmacy that administered this shot. BetterLife Home Medical & Pharmacy in Laurier Heights. They went above and beyond to provide this vaccine to me— and quickly— after I discovered I am ineligible for AstraZeneca because of my recent Pulmonary Embolism.
“They cared and treated me like someone who matters. I am so grateful to them for this protection they’ve provided me, my loved ones, work mates and community. Alberta has felt like a dumpster fire a lot of the time recently, but there are some truly wonderful people here who believe in the greater good.”
