Russia Today (RT) quoted local Israeli media on the 1st as saying that about 240 Israelis were diagnosed with the novel coronavirus after being vaccinated against the vaccine jointly developed by Pfizer Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. and German Biotechnology Company.
The article said that the Pfizer vaccine needs two injections.
Therefore, there are calls for the inoculated person to be more careful in the nearly one month it takes for the two shots to be injected even after the first injection.
According to the report, Israel is currently carrying out a large-scale vaccination project, and more than 1 million people (nearly 12% of the total population) have been vaccinated against the vaccine jointly developed by Pfizer and Biotechnology.
According to RT, about one thousand of these inoculated people experienced minor side effects, including weakness, dizziness and fever, as well as pain, swelling and redness at the injection site.
Local health authorities say dozens of them need medical treatment after vaccination.
The report also mentioned that at least four people have died soon after vaccination in Israel since the vaccination began on December 20.
However, the health department said that three deaths were not related to vaccines.
The fourth was an 88-year-old with a basic disease. The cause of death is currently under investigation.
240 Israelis still contracted the coronavirus after being vaccinated against Pfizer, 4 people died
January 2 According to local media reports in Israel, more than 200 of the nearly 1 million Israelis who have been vaccinated against Pfizer against the novel coronavirus are still diagnosed with the novel coronavirus.
According to the report, because the vaccine cannot immediately have an immune effect on the virus, people still need to be vigilant and protect themselves within one month of the first dose of vaccine.
According to the Israeli Times and Russian Satellite News Agency on the 1st, data released on December 30, 2020 show that about 240 Israelis have been diagnosed with COVID-19 a few days after vaccination with Pfizer.
In addition, 319 people reported side effects such as weakness, dizziness and fever after injection, 5 people had diarrhea symptoms, 14 people reported allergies such as throat hair, and 293 people reported local symptoms such as pain and swelling after injection. 26 people have “neurological symptoms”.
Israel’s public broadcaster mentioned that four people in the country had died shortly after vaccination against Pfizer. Three of them have been considered by the Ministry of Health, doctors, etc.
to have no cause of death related to vaccines. The situation of the fourth case is under investigation.
Regarding the fact that the virus is still infected after vaccination, Israeli media pointed out that after vaccination, the human body still needs time to produce antibodies.
Research on Pfizer vaccine so far shows that immunity to COVID-19 will increase 8 to 10 days after the first vaccination, but the effectiveness is only about 50%. That’s why it is quite important to get a second dose of vaccine later.
However, even if the vaccine is most effective, the vaccinated person is still 5% likely to be infected. These data urge people to remain vigilant, especially in the month after the first dose of the vaccine, and all precautions need to be fully observed.
