Currently 55,000 people have been vaccinated. “I got the vaccine and had to wait 15 minutes for them to see how I reacted to the vaccine. In those 15 minutes I had no problems, so I went home”. Eelco goes home in his car and doesn’t notice any side effects at first until he takes care of his skin in the evening.
“Then I noticed a rash on my arms and stomach. I had eaten normally, so it must have been because of the vaccine. There was a red rash, there was red bumps. It didn’t itch. I had the doctor checked it didn’t do anything about it. It didn’t bother me too much, but the supposed serious side. I am one of two cases with implications. ”Personally, Krieger thinks it’s not that bad in terms of power.
Watch Eelco’s story here:
A little shock
Of course it was a bit of a shock to Krieger. “The reaction I got was very different from what I have read everywhere. You wonder, ‘What is this?’ Fortunately, there was nothing wrong and it went away on its own after two days, but for a while you think of everything. ”
Later, Eelco reports his symptoms to Lareb through the news that he heard that his complaints were ‘serious side effects’.
1 in 100,000 people will have a severe allergic reaction
“You can get a strong reaction after an injection,” says Helen Siers, GGD infectious disease control doctor. After vaccination, persons should remain for 15 minutes of observation so that adequate action can be taken in case of a direct allergic reaction.
Fifteen minutes later Eelco had nothing and less than 100,000 people were vaccinated, we ship to Siers. “This is a coincidence,” says Siers. We immediately received two reports of anaphylactic shock as it was called on the first day in England. An allergic reaction in which blood vessels were dilated and the temperature in the body was elevated. “Then the patient is given adrenaline, which causes the blood vessels to narrow again, which stops the allergic effect if you arrive on time.” For this reason, people have to wait 15 minutes after receiving the vaccine.
GGD urges people with side effects to report this.
