The largest vaccine study to date shows that coronavirus vaccines from companies including Pfizer, Moderna and AstraZeneca are linked to rare heart, brain and blood disorders.


This study Global Vaccine Data NetworkAccording to an analysis of 99 million people in eight countries who received the vaccine and monitored increases in 13 medical conditions. bloomberg news.

The study, published last week in the journal Vaccines, showed that the vaccine was associated with a small spike in neurological, blood and heart-related conditions.

This comes after a small number of cases of myocarditis, an inflammation of the heart muscle, were found with the first, second and third doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna mRNA vaccines.

Additionally, the risk of pericarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle), another heart disease, increased 6.9 times in people who received the third dose of AstraZeneca’s Vector shot, the study showed.

according to bloombergviral vector shots such as the one created by the University of Oxford and manufactured by AstraZeneca also increased the risk of blood clots in the brain.

Additionally, they were found to be 3.8 times more likely to develop the neurological disorder acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM) after the Moderna vaccine was issued.

Meanwhile, 13.5 billion new coronavirus vaccines have been administered since the start of the new coronavirus pandemic. our world in data.

“The population size of this study increased the likelihood of identifying rare potential vaccine safety signals,” lead author Kristina Faxova from Denmark’s Statens Serum Institute Epidemiology Research Division said in a release. .

But one vaccine expert not involved in the study still justified the vaccine’s benefits as outweighing the risks.

“The odds of experiencing all these adverse events when infected with SARS-CoV-2 are still much higher, so getting vaccinated is a much safer choice,” says the biotech company. said Jacob Granville, CEO of Centivaix.Said forbes.

Additionally, Dr. Mark Siegel, clinical professor of medicine at New York University Langone Medical Center, shared the same thoughts.

“Large studies and review of data reveal a rare association between mRNA vaccines and myocarditis, particularly after the second dose, and an association between the Oxford-AstraZeneca adenovirus vector vaccine and Guillain-Barré syndrome. ,” Siegel said.I was told that I wasn’t involved in the research. fox news digital.

“However, these risks are rare, and other studies have shown that the vaccine dramatically reduces the risk of myocarditis caused by the coronavirus itself,” he said, noting that all vaccines have side effects. He added that there is.
