In tearful testimony before the San Diego County Board of Supervisors, a pediatric nurse rebuked the supervisor whose vaccine mandate led to her dismissal, preventing her from caring for children whom she charged were contracting myocarditis from the shots amid a cover-up.
“I’m a nurse – at least I was – at Rady Children’s in the cardiovascular intensive care unit,” said Tammy Buettner at the Sept. 13 meeting, “until Nathan and his misinformation pandemic caused me to lose my job.”
Her reference was to Nathan Fletcher, whose failed policies, she said, caused the loss of a career she loved.
Buettner said she cared for children suffering from myocarditis “after the vaccine.”
As a charge nurse, she asked physicians why they weren’t reporting the vaccine injuries to the databased established by the CDC and the FDA to provide safety signals, the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System, or VAERS.
Buettner said it was an “unspoken” rule that personnel in the unit were not allowed to talk about the lack of reporting.
“I’ve worked for 13 years in this community taking care of some of the sickest patients,” she said, choking back tears. “The day before I was taken away from my position, I was actively given compressions to a child … pushing calcium into his veins to keep him alive.”
The child went home, she said, “yet I was ridiculed by those who were supposed to be my colleagues and my friends.”
“I am the face of your misinformation campaign, Nathan. I am the one who lost my career in pediatric cardiovascular ICU care,” she said.
Buettner, who noted she never got COVID, said she followed the rules, testing for the disease twice a week and wearing the required protective equipment, “because I loved by job and I loved this community.”
Establishment media “fact checkers,” relying on the CDC, typically have slapped a “misinformation” label on reports that the COVID-19 vaccines are associated with a significantly high rate of myocarditis, potentially causing blood clots, heart attack or stroke.
But the CDC’s analysis of its own Vaccine Safety Datalink surveillance data shows the incidence of myocarditis after vaccination is three to five times higher for young men than what the agency was reporting at this time last year.
In an interview later with San Diego’s KUSI-TV, Buettner said the speech she gave to the board earlier this month was not the one she intended.
She explained that she was prepared to address the board’s allocation of funds for COVID testing.
“But when I got up there, I just was explaining who I was, and realized I’m not a nurse anymore,” she said. “I don’t take care of these children anymore, and that’s the speech I ended up giving.”
Buettner told KUSI she called Fletcher’s office to voice her concerns and never received a call back.

Attention @NathanFletcher: You represent all of your constituents, not just those that voted for you.
Why are you ignoring Tawny Buettner?
Buettner lost her career as a nurse due to the vaccine mandate.
