Delilah Hamlin’s Instagram followers react to her health journey concerning the COVID-19 vaccine.
Today, the model daughter of “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” alum Lisa Rinna and actor Harry Hamlin returned to Instagram to share her story. As per the 23-year-old, her underlying autoimmune diseases reacted to the COVID-19 vaccine.
Delilah posted a 28-minute long video of herself inside her room chatting about her health journey. Her dog, who was not shown on cam, was with her and could be heard snoring in the background.
“Okay, so I’m just gonna start talking. So this is scary to do because I was actually asked not to tell my story by someone close to me,” Delilah said.
“So basically, in the beginning of the year, I want to say, February and March is when I got my COVID 19 vaccine. And in no way am I saying I’m an anti-Vaxxer because I’m totally not. I just didn’t know enough about it. No one did,” she continued.
After The Second Shot
Delilah specified that it was with the second vaccine where she felt something was wrong.
“I didn’t really notice anything after the first vaccine, but I’m just kind of hurt, you know, whatever. And then after the second vaccine, I was sick for like 36 hours. I felt like my bones are breaking but like, whatever. I was like, Okay, fine. That’s, that’s the worst part,” she recalled. “But basically, the day before I got my second vaccine, I just flew back from London to get my second vaccine because they weren’t doing the Maderna in London, so I had to fly back, and then I was gonna fly right back to London. But so March 16, I flew, and keep in mind I flew for 11…. 11 hours.”
Her Mental Health
Delilah also shared that she had the worst panic attack after traveling from London, just hours after getting the second dose.
” I didn’t realize that the vaccine would cause an autoimmune response to my body that basically flared up and triggered certain autoimmune diseases that I didn’t know I had,” she said in the clip.
Her Body’s Reaction To The Vaccine
While most people experience some mild fever and fatigue after the second dose, Delilah felt something worse in her body.
“I started getting really sick, start feeling really sick. I started feeling like I had the flu the whole time. I was getting migraines, I was having panic attacks. Like, I’ve never, I would never wish those panic attacks on even my like, worst enemy. I mean, it was like, my body was in constant fight or flight. It was horrible,” she recalled.
The socialite revealed that she was diagnosed with numerous health issues, including Epstein Barr, SIBO, and PANDAS, which she thought was “weird” since it’s usually for children, though she had it when she was a child.

“So I started having a contamination fear. And I think that’s part of the reason why I lost a lot of weight recently,” she said.
Aside from the mentioned conditions, Delilah said doctors found “five different tick-borne illnesses” on her, “mostly Borrelia.”
To make matters worse, Delilah had been experiencing seizures. Behind the stunning Instagram photos of her Greek vacation with boyfriend Eyal Booker last Summer was her struggles with health.
“I’ve just been having seizures since July. So that’s been pretty scary as well,” she said.
