Pfizer Vaccine Invokes Bell's Palsy: Research Says
Pfizer's 95% effective vaccine has been tested on 38,000 volunteers. The new report says four cases of Bell's palsy, but experts say the figure is within normal limits.
“The frequency of serious adverse events was low (<0.5%), without meaningful imbalances between study arms. Among non-serious unsolicited adverse events, there was a numerical imbalance of four cases of Bell’s palsy in the vaccine group compared with no cases in the placebo group, though the four cases in the vaccine group do not represent a frequency above that expected in the general population,” the report says.
At the moment, more than 632 thousand Americans are registered as infected with Covid-19, which may indicate the likely manifestation of Bell's palsy in a huge number of patients.
“Bell's palsy is the most common cause of facial paralysis, although its exact cause is unknown. Generally, Bell's palsy affects only one side of the face; however, in rare cases, it can affect both sides. Symptoms appear suddenly over a 48 - 72-hour period and generally start to improve with or without treatment after a few weeks, with recovery of some or all facial function within six months. In some cases, residual muscle weakness lasts longer or may be permanent,” says National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke.
Overall, Pfizer's vaccine tests are showing disappointing and dangerous results. Aggressive marketing of the manufacturer's pharmaceutical company and the bottomless budget of the United States made it possible to create a potentially dangerous drug in the shortest possible time, and the UK became a testing ground.
“The most common solicited adverse reactions were injection site reactions (84.1%), fatigue (62.9%), headache (55.1%), muscle pain (38.3%), chills (31.9%), joint pain (23.6%), fever (14.2%); severe adverse reactions occurred in 0.0% to 4.6% of participants,” said in the report.
In the early stages of testing the vaccine, the subjects showed symptoms of a terrible hangover.
