The covid 19 vaccines continue to make headlines these days, and they continue to trigger massive debates all over the world due to their potential side effects.
For instance, Pfizer was in the spotlight not too long ago when new side effects came up and were addressed by experts.
Pfizer side effects discussed by experts
It’s been just revealed that three new conditions reported by a small number of people after vaccination with COVID-19 shots from Pfizer (PFE.N) and Moderna (MRNA.O) are being studied to assess if they may be possible side-effects – this is what Europe’s drugs regulator said on Wednesday, as cited by Reuters press agency.
“Erythema multiforme, a form of allergic skin reaction; glomerulonephritis or kidney inflammation; and nephrotic syndrome, a renal disorder characterised by heavy urinary protein losses,” – all these are being studied by the safety committee of the European Medicines Agency (EMA), according to the regulator.
It’s also been revealed that the EMA found a possible link between very rare heart inflammation and the mRNA vaccines.
Fauci drops news about the vaccines
Now, it’s been reported that Anthony Fauci had a conclusion to reveal about the covid vaccines.
CNN just revealed that an official rollout of booster doses could begin within weeks pending FDA authorization.
It’s also been reported that probably three doses of the vaccine are needed for full protection, Dr. Anthony Fauci said.
He cited two Israeli-based studies – as CNN noted, these showed a decrease in infections among people who got a third or booster shot.
Fauci said the following about the third dose:
This “will actually be durable, and if it is durable, then you’re going to have very likely a three-dose regimen being the routine regimen.”
“At some point down the line, we may have a way of telling who needs an extra shot, and who doesn’t,” US Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy said on a call hosted by US Health and Human Services Covid-19 Community Corps.
