Kaitlin Endres: 33-Year-old California Woman Paralyzed, Re-Learning How To Walk After Johnson & Johnson Viral Vector DNA Injection
Ms. Kaitlin Endres.
RAMONA, CALIFORNIA — A 33-year-old flight attendant and former beauty pageant contestant is holding out hope that she may walk on her own again. But she’s resigned to her “new life”and trying to stay positive in the face of the impossible.
Ms. Kaitlin Endres received the experimental Johnson & Johnson viral vector DNA injection on June 9, according to her Instagram account. She felt it was “the right thing to do.” She also felt pressure to get the injection because of her jobs in both the airline industry and real estate. Ms. Endres called the injection a “birthday present to herself” since she turned 33 the day before.
