The coronavirus vaccines are surrounded by so much controversy like there’s no tomorrow. This is one of the reasons for which some people are not that anxious to get the shots.
Now, more news comes to add food for thought about the issue.
BBC dropped the bomb that an adverse reaction to a Covid-19 vaccine has been listed as an underlying cause for one death in Northern Ireland.
Adverse vaccine reactions
Now, BBC revealed that the government statistics agency Nisra said the death was registered during the first quarter of 2021.
“The person who died was a man aged over 90 in the Northern Trust area. No further details are known. The Department of Health, which runs the vaccination programme, said it could not discuss individual cases,” BBC writes.
BBC also noted that the “overwhelming majority” of reports concern reactions at the injection site, like a sore arm, and generalised symptoms such as “flu-like” illness, headache, chills, fatigue, feeling sick, fever, and rapid heartbeat.
There has been a small number of reports worldwide of people developing clots after a first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine as well and you can check out more info about the issue in some of our previous articles.
Delta covid-19 variant could trigger new waves
earlier today, we addressed the fact that according to CBSNews, with just 45% of Americans fully vaccinated and only 16 states that have fully vaccinated more than half of their populations, health experts are worried about the spread of the highly contagious Delta variant.
We’ve already covered this subject of the new covid variant, and it is 60% more contagious than the Alpha variant discovered in the U.K.
Delta, first identified in India, has the potential “to be more lethal because it’s more efficient in the way it transmits between humans and it will eventually find those vulnerable individuals who will become severely ill, have to be hospitalized and potentially die,” Dr. Mike Ryan, executive director of the WHO’s health emergencies program, said.
