How many of the videos circulating on WhatsApp regarding the supposed side effects of the covid vaccine do you actually find true? Videos of men lighting a bulb with bare hands after getting vaccinated and attaching magnets to their skin claiming that the vaccine has made them magnetic make rounds on the internet. As absurd as it sounds, some people believe in such videos, making them sceptical of getting vaccinated.
You have to be at a certain level of stupidity to believe in such absurdity. But the internet has something for everyone, even for your completely sane and mature mind, it has videos that will make you second guess your decision of getting jabbed. Videos with such assertive tone and certain facts can even make the vaccine developers question their decision and efforts. But is there any truth to these supposed side effects of the covid vaccine?
The Famous Video
One such video that has been making rounds on all social media claims that the covid vaccine has been declared unsafe for humans by doctors.
Only dissecting this video and its claims will help us reach a conclusion.
Dissecting The Claims Regarding The Covid Vaccine
The very confident and assertive speaker in the video implies that the doctors in England have demanded a complete cessation o the vaccine for human use. The apparent facts he states are based on the study that also highlights the common reactions of the covid vaccine as.
- Bleeding and clotting
- Unusual pains
- Unexpected immune system reactions
- Neurological responses
- Loss of sight, hearing, smell and taste
The VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System) has also been sighted in the video, claiming that almost 6000 people have died after taking the vaccination. Many others have faced serious circumstances like facial palsy, heart attack, and other medical conditions emergencies.
The speaker also asserts that the numbers representing the adverse effects of the covid vaccine are far greater than the effects of all other vaccines combined, which isn’t normal, labelling the vaccine as not normal and an emergency vaccine.
Are The Claims Regarding The Covid Vaccine True?
Only if these claims were true, many of you already vaccinated wouldn’t have been alive or healthy enough to be reading this article. To be straightforward, the most authentic organization, i.e. WHO, doesn’t support any such claims. The most trustworthy source for you in Pakistan should be the NCOC (National Command Operation Centre), which denies all these claims as well.
The ‘urgent British report’ cited in the video is not official. It’s a whitepaper published by a physicist who advocates ineffective and untested pharmaceutical therapies for covid-19. The study cites vaccination suspected adverse events data from MHRA Yellow Card as proof that covid vaccines are dangerous. However, this data alone cannot be used to conclude the presence of issues linked with vaccines. According to the weekly summary of Yellow Card, the overwhelming majority of suspected adverse reaction reports so far match the safety profile observed in clinical trials and serious events, such as blood clots or anaphylaxis, are very uncommon. Also, the anticipated advantages of avoiding COVID-19 and severe consequences of the illness substantially exceed any presently known adverse effects.
According to a report published in CNN, less than 1% of people of fully vaccinated people experience a breakthrough COVID-19 infection. A breakthrough infection may lead to long term hospital admission or even death. According to the most recent statistics from the US Centers for Illness Control and Prevention, fewer than 0.004% of individuals who were completely vaccinated against COVID-19 had a breakthrough case that required hospitalisation, and less than 0.001% died from the disease. This equates to about 6,600 serious breakthrough cases out of a total population of more than 163 million fully vaccinated individuals.
These statistics are enough to rule out any claim made in the video and trust the vaccine you are to be administered.
Why Get The Covid Vaccine?
Why get vaccinated for a disease with only a 3.4% mortality rate? Why take the risk of getting your heart diseased or getting your facial muscles distorted to prevent a disease that might not kill you in the first place? The simple answer to this is that you need to get vaccinated for yourself and others around you. You may be healthy enough to bear the harshness of this disease, but not many can.
