Scientists Surprised By Frequency of COVID-19 Adverse Reactions

in #covid193 years ago

The COVID-19 immunisations have begun in various locations around the World, the exact numbers of now vaccinated individuals is unclear, but certainly it's already in the tens, if not hundreds of thousands.

It's almost 2 weeks since the first shot was given in the UK, and most have yet to receive their second shot.

But even now, at these early stages, scientists are remarking on the 'superior frequency' of adverse reactions compared to other vaccines.

The head scientific adviser for Operation Warp Speed, Dr. Moncef Slaoui, told CNN earlier this week:

"That frequency, as it stood yesterday, is superior to what one would expect with other vaccines," - CNN[1]

Notice the careful use of words in that statement. 'Superior' is typically associated with something positive, something better. He meant increased frequency, but technically that is not superior, it is inferior as the desire is surely for lower frequency adverse events?

The report from CNN also said that:

Slaoui noted the vaccine makers and the National Institutes of Health are mulling clinical trials for the vaccines in populations that suffer from severe allergies, like those who always have to carry anti-allergy medication in an EpiPen. - CNN[1]

While there are those out there that will make jokes about people being cautious of the vaccine because it has caused a few adverse effects, they are missing the bigger picture. Only a relatively small number of people have been immunised so far. But that's not all.....

Consider that only a portion of the reporting data has come back so far from the already completed vaccinated, then consider that a large portion of adverse effects will not be reported. This can be for a number of reasons from patient pride and belief in the vaccine to doctor dismissal of association.

It's been estimated that fewer than 1% of Vaccine adverse events get reported to the VAERS system in the US[2].

For a disease that effects so few, and kills even fewer, does this vaccine really seem worth the risk?

The link to your first scaremongering quote doesn't actually contain your scaremongering quote. How peculiar...

I found the quote here -

As far as scaremongering is concerned, the histeria around covid-19 in comparison to its actual effects is the real scaremongering.

I'm surprised this would be considered scaremongering by yourself, considering all the fear propaganda you've been fed surrounding the virus.

This may be a badly written piece of independent journalism, but it still makes a good point.

Are you British? I would be very surprised if someone who is actually from the UK used a quote from the Daily Mail, that is beyond comical
