I am not trying to create panic and I am not trying to disappoint anyone with this news which has come out from Johnson and Johnson company. Severe allergic reaction from Covid vaccine in two patients has been observed by the experts of the company as they have disclosed to the media.
A Johnson & Johnson scientist said on Friday that the company has received preliminary reports of two cases of severe allergic reactions, including one case of anaphylaxis, in people who had received the company’s COVID-19 vaccine. According to new data released Friday, as of Feb. 12, 15,923 adverse reactions to #COVID #vaccines, including 929 deaths, have been reported to the #CDC’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) since Dec. 14, 2020.
But then people from all over the world are taking the vaccines and they have no issues or very very mild issues. Update on my reaction to 1st Pfizer Covid vaccine administered on Tuesday 23 Feb. I felt a bit hot yesterday afternoon and overnight. Taken paracetamol and feel fine again this morning. This is the only “adverse” affect I’ve had so far. So I think that this Johnson and Johnson vaccine reaction is just a rare thing which has just happened to few people.
So far, millions of people have been given a #CovidVaccine and reports of serious side effects, such as allergic reactions, have been very rare. Vaccines are only made available on the NHS once they have been thoroughly tested to make sure they are safe and effective. One of my friend told me, “My reaction to the 2nd dose of the Pfizer covid vaccine was much milder than my reaction to the 1st dose. Just a sore arm & slight fatigue. First dose had me feeling like sponge bob with the suds. Reactions to covid vaccines are very individual. As someone with long covid symptoms I was scared”.
Here is another reaction from one of my neighbor, “Folks and furbabies, I had my second Covid vaccine yesterday with the same reactions as before – sore arm and tiredness. It’s much better today and should be gone by tomorrow. Just thought you’d like to know. Love you all!” and here is another one, “I had my first Covid vaccine, on Wednesday. The area felt a little warm, about half an hour after, just for a few minutes, then no other reactions at all. I think I may have been given the women’s version.”.
A very good friend of mine had a severe, days long reaction to the vaccine, and I just appreciated their commitment to posting through it, like “Still glad I got it!” “It’s the right thing to do!” “This is still better than Covid!”
