56 reports of 'adverse events' following COVID-19 vaccinations in B.C.
Pay attention to the downplaying/minimization of these adverse events
"VANCOUVER -- After administering nearly 120,000 doses of the two COVID-19 vaccines approved for use in Canada, British Columbia has now received 56 reports of "adverse events" following immunization.
Provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry confirmed the numbers at her coronavirus briefing Monday, revealing 10 vaccine recipients reportedly suffered anaphylaxis after receiving their shot."
10 vaccine recipients suffered anaphylaxis
"That's about eight per 100,000," (it's actually a little more then 8 per 100,000) Henry said. "That is slightly more than we would expect based on other immunization programs, such as for influenza."
Slightly more?- We will get to that information
" One of the patients who suffered anaphylaxis was hospitalized, but all 10 recovered.
Another 16 vaccine recipients suffered other allergic reactions and one experienced Bell's palsy, or paralysis of some of the muscles in the face. The condition is generally not permanent."
It's generally not permanent. But sometimes it is.
"That's something that we've seen reported in the trials for this vaccine as well," Henry noted. "So far, there has been no associated deaths from immunization, and we are monitoring all of the safety signals very carefully."Associated deaths? How does she mean that? Does she mean it's being claimed there is no connection to any deaths with vaccine. Hence no association?
"Henry did not provide a breakdown of how many of the adverse events followed a dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine and how many followed the Moderna vaccine.
Health officials and the manufactures have always said a small number of adverse reactions are likely given how many people are expected to take the vaccine in the coming months."
Correct me if I'm mistaken the trials before EUA didn't document anaphylaxis in any of the guinea pigs.. And, yet
"The potential for an adverse or allergic reaction is why doctors, nurses and pharmacists typically ask patients to wait 15 minutes after receiving any immunization.Anaphylaxis
The B.C. Centre for Disease Control's "after care sheet" for the COVID-19 vaccine notes that some people may wish to wait longer – around 30 minutes – if there are concerns about a possible allergic reaction.
According to ImmunizeBC, there are some common and mild reactions to the COVID-19 vaccine, such as soreness and swelling near the injection spot – a side effect also commonly associated with the annual flu shot.
"Vaccines are very safe," the ImmunizeBC website notes. "It is much safer to get the vaccine than to get COVID-19."
As of Monday, British Columbia has given out 119,850 doses of COVID-19 vaccine, the vast majority of which were first doses. Only 3,193 people have received a second dose for far."
Anaphylaxis is a serious, potentially life-threatening allergic reaction to foreign antigens; it has been proven to be causally associated with vaccines with an estimated frequency of 1.3 episodes per million doses of vaccine administered.
Anaphylaxis is causally (the two are connected- cause and effect) associated with vaccines with an estimated frequency of 1.3 episodes per million.
In BC there were 8 anaphylactic reactions suffered per 100,000. If we do the math that would be 80 reactions per million. Not 1.3 episodes per million cited from official figures. Is that really "slightly more" then normal? What do you think?
Is 80 "slightly more" then 1.3?
