If getting the COVID-19 vaccine means that you’ll be unable to continue going to work or you might have trouble doing even basic daily activities, would you still opt to receive it?
As of December 18, 3,150 people who’ve been vaccinated with the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine have already reported experiencing “health impact events.” According to an article by The Epoch Times:
“Those who are experiencing these ‘events’ are ‘unable to perform normal daily activities, unable to work,’ or “required care from [a] doctor or health care professional.”
These reports came in via the app V-Safe, which allows users to send “check-ins” on their health status to the CDC.
Allergic reactions or anaphylaxis, is a common side effect, and the effects are so severe to require hospitalization, as is the case with a worker from the Bartlett Regional Hospital, who was hospitalized for at least two nights after suffering from “increased heartbeat, shortness of breath, and skin rash and redness.”
In an Illinois hospital, four workers suffered adverse reactions like tingling and an elevated heart rate, prompting them to temporarily halt vaccinations.
Speaking to reporters, Peter Marks, Ph.D., director of the Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, said:
“We’ll be looking at all of the data we can from each of these reactions to sort out exactly what happened. And we’ll also be looking to try to understand which components of the vaccine might be helping to produce them.”
