Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine: A 75-year-old Man Died in Israel
Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine: A 75-year-old Man Died in Israel. What happened to the Pfizer vaccine? A 75-year-old man in Israel has a cardiac arrest after injection! Multiple reports of adverse reactions…
Since the approval, discussions about the safety of Pfizer vaccines have never stopped. Previously, the United States has reported multiple cases of adverse reactions after receiving Pfizer vaccine, and another approved Moderna vaccine in the United States has also caused severe allergies.
On December 28, local time, a 75-year-old Israeli man died 2 hours after being vaccinated by Pfizer, which once again pushed him to the forefront of public opinion.
With the successive reports of adverse reactions among vaccinators in various parts of the United States and the continuous exposure of the chaos in the vaccination process in many countries, the American public has become more and more suspicious about vaccination.
01 A 75-year-old man died 2 hours after being injected with Pfizer vaccine
According to overseas reports, a 75-year-old man was injected with Pfizer vaccine at 8:30 in the morning on the 28th, and no adverse reactions occurred after being hospitalized for observation. But when he returned home, about 2 hours after the vaccination, the man suddenly lost consciousness and was later confirmed to have died of heart failure.
Screenshots of Israeli media reports
Up to now, the local health department reported that there is no evidence that the death of this old man is inevitable related to the vaccination. The Ministry of Health of the country stated that the man had active heart disease and malignant diseases and had had multiple heart attacks. “The man was vaccinated this morning with COVID-19 and died at home shortly afterwards.” The health department announced that it would be against While further investigation into this matter, it was also announced that “vaccination will continue.”
It is understood that on December 19, local time, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu publicly vaccinated the COVID-19 vaccine, becoming Israel’s first vaccinator. Netanyahu also promised that millions of doses of Pfizer vaccine will arrive in Israel by the end of this month and urged all Israelis to get vaccinated.
02 Eight people in Germany received 5 times the normal dose of vaccine
On the other hand, Germany also had an “accident” on the first day of promoting the large-scale vaccination of the COVID-19 vaccine.
According to overseas websites citing Russian media reports on the 28th, 8 staff members of a nursing home in Germany were injected with 5 times the normal dose of Pfizer vaccine, and 4 of them were admitted to the hospital because of symptoms of influenza and new coronavirus pneumonia. The 8 employees who were given the wrong dose of the vaccine were 7 women and 1 man, between the ages of 38 and 54.
On December 27, local time, Germany officially launched the nationwide vaccination of the COVID-19 vaccine. The first batch of vaccines was the mRNA vaccine jointly developed by Pfizer and BioNTech in Germany.
However, eight workers in a nursing home in Stralsund, a town in northeastern Germany, received five times the normal dose (30 micrograms), or 150 micrograms. On the 28th, Stephen Coles, the chief executive of the area where the nursing home is located, stated that after 8 people were vaccinated with overdose, 4 people developed symptoms similar to influenza and new coronavirus pneumonia. To prevent their symptoms from getting worse, they have been admitted to hospital for treatment.
“I deeply regret this incident.” Coles said that this was a case caused by a mistake by an individual staff member, and it is hoped that those affected would not have serious side effects.
According to a German BioNTech spokesperson, although the prescribed dose of the vaccine is only 30 micrograms, researchers have conducted “increased dose” experiments in clinical trials and found that doses up to 100 micrograms are tolerable without “serious consequences.” “.
However, five times the normal dose is 150 micrograms, which is far more than the 100 micrograms in the trial. It is unclear whether any clinical trials have tested such a high dose.
03 Cold chain distribution problems and frequent adverse reactions
On the day of the above accident, many counties and cities in the Upper Franconia region of Bavaria, Germany, caused about 1,000 doses of vaccines to be unavailable due to cold chain problems during the vaccine delivery process.
Pfizer vaccine uses new messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) technology and must be stored at an ultra-low temperature of about -70 degrees Celsius before being shipped to the distribution center to maintain its effectiveness. Pfizer has designed a special shipping container filled with dry ice to prevent the vaccine from failing during delivery. If this vaccine is placed at 2 to 8 degrees Celsius, which is equivalent to the temperature of a general refrigerator in hospitals, it can only be stored for 5 days.
It is reported that the Bavarian companies include Lynchdon Pears, Coburg, Kronach, Kulmbach, Hof, Bayreuth and Wunsiedel. Many northern cities have suspended vaccination because they are uncertain whether the cold chain of vaccine transportation meets the regulations.
In fact, after the United States launched the first batch of COVID-19 vaccination work on December 15, several batches of vaccines were scrapped due to abnormal cold chain during transportation, and some places failed to receive the predetermined number of vaccines. All these have had an impact on public confidence.
Public reports show that there have been many cases of serious adverse reactions after vaccination in the United States.
On the 26th of this month, a doctor in Boston, USA, developed a severe allergic reaction within minutes after receiving Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccination, becoming the first allergic case after Moderna vaccine was vaccinated nationwide. Hussein Sadrzad, an oncologist at Boston Medical Center, said in an interview that he felt severe reactions almost immediately after vaccination, including dizziness and rapid heartbeat.
Sadrzad hurried to inject the adrenaline he was carrying and was carried to the emergency room on a stretcher, where he received steroids and other medications to alleviate allergic reactions. He left the emergency room 4 hours later and felt fully recovered the next day.
On December 23, a medical worker in New York City, the United States, suffered a severe allergic reaction after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine, and his condition was stable after receiving treatment.
Going back, Alaska has seen three consecutive cases of adverse reactions after vaccination by medical staff in Alaska.
The first case occurred on December 15th. A local medical staff experienced allergic reactions such as rapid heartbeat, shortness of breath and skin rash 10 minutes after vaccination. The second case occurred on the 16th, also 10 minutes after vaccination. , The vaccinated person experienced symptoms such as swollen eyes, dizziness and itchy throat; the third incident occurred on the 17th, 10 minutes after vaccination, a clinician developed allergic symptoms, including tongue swelling, hoarseness and difficulty breathing , Was immediately sent to the hospital for treatment.
After reports of adverse reactions in various places, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently stated that people who are allergic to the relevant COVID-19 vaccine components should not be vaccinated. However, people who are allergic to non-vaccine ingredients such as food and pets and those who are mildly allergic to vaccines can still continue to vaccinate. The agency recommends that before vaccinating the COVID-19 vaccine, you should consult your doctor whether it is suitable for vaccination.
Experts believe that, based on clinical experimental data, it is more likely that adverse reactions will occur when receiving Pfizer vaccine.
04 Only 61% of Americans are willing to be vaccinated
Due to reports of adverse reactions among vaccinators in various places, Moncef Sloy, the head of the US COVID-19 vaccine project, said: “We are advancing a plan to test Moderna vaccine and Pfizer vaccine on extremely allergic subjects to explore this. The immune mechanism behind an allergic reaction.”
Many medical experts say that allergic reactions caused by vaccines are rare, but sometimes they occur.
In addition to the more recent Pfizer vaccine, some experts say that Moderna vaccine may have side effects such as fatigue, headache and muscle pain, and some rare symptoms, such as nausea, vomiting and facial swelling, may be caused by injections. Trigger. Although some side effects are difficult to eliminate, most of them will go away on their own within a week.
Some chaos also appeared during the vaccination process. Some large companies and wealthy people are using various forces to try to obtain priority vaccination rights. Several media outlets have recently exposed multiple incidents of trying to purchase vaccines at high prices. Some people even considered donating money to hospitals in exchange for vaccines. In this case, ethnic minorities and low-income communities may again fall victim to the epidemic prevention process.
Because of this series of negative factors, the American public’s confidence in the COVID-19 vaccine appears insufficient. A survey led by National Geographic found that only 61% of Americans are willing to get vaccinated. Among the 2,201 Americans surveyed, 37% answered “very likely”, 24% answered “somewhat possible”, 11% said “unlikely”, and 19% said “very unlikely” “, and another 10% of respondents said they don’t know.
