Covid jabs increase risk of heart and neurological disorders

Reading time: 1 minute

The Covid-19 vaccines have been linked to a significant increase in heart, blood and neurological disorders, according to a new study that has tracked 99 million vaccinated people.

People who have had one of the main Covid jabs—made by Pfizer, Moderna or AstraZeneca—are much more likely to suffer from a serious health problem, including a threefold increased risk of myocarditis, or heart inflammation.

The Moderna vaccine raises the risk of Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis (ADEM)—a swelling in the brain and spinal cord that damages nerve fibre covering—by 3.7 times, and the AstraZeneca jab increases the risk of ADEM and transverse myelitis—spinal cord swelling—by up to 3.9 times.

One dose of the Pfizer mRNA vaccine increases the risk of Bell’s palsy—a temporary weakness or paralysis of the muscles on one side of the face—1.05 times, and there was a 1.4 times greater risk of seizure after the first and second dose of the Moderna vaccine.

The researchers, from Statens Serum Institute in Copenhagen, analysed data from vaccine adverse events reporting systems from eight countries that had monitored 99 million people who had been given more than 183 million shots of one of the Covid vaccines.
