The reports around the potential side effects of the covid vaccines continue, and the latest ones have been addressed by the publication Financial Times. Check out the latest news about the subject as revealed by FT.
Potential neurological side effects from covid vaccines are analyzed
It’s been just revealed that the BioNTech/Pfizer and Oxford/AstraZeneca covid vaccines are associated with seven rare neurological complications. Financial Times notes that this is according to the most comprehensive study of the side effects from the two vaccines.
Experts reportedly used data from 32m vaccinated adults in England, and they estimated that an extra 38 people per 10m who received their first Oxford/AstraZeneca shot suffered from Guillain-Barré syndrome.
Just in case you don’t know, this causes pain and weakness in the limbs. It’s also worth noting the fact that this is usually temporary.
Here’s what FT noted as well:
“They found an increased risk of haemorrhagic stroke, a brain bleed, in the 28 days after vaccination with the BioNTech/Pfizer shot, at an estimated 60 extra cases per 10m people. The increased risk was significantly higher in female patients.”
Reports claim that covid 19 triggers more risks for the aforementioned conditions
Financial Times also notes that Aziz Sheikh, professor of primary care research and development at the University of Edinburgh, made sure to highlight the fact that the adverse events were so rare that they had to report their incidence in millions, rather than thousands.
These incidents were measured in the 28 days after vaccination or a positive test result.
“We’re not seeing a higher risk for any of these adverse events associated with the vaccine, than those associated with the infection,” he said.
The online publication also mentioned an important issue – people who are infected with Sars CoV-2 had a substantially higher risk of the seven neurological conditions.
