January 5th local time, Bogdan Kirilov, director of the Bulgarian Medical Bureau, told the media that nearly 5,000 people have been vaccinated against the novel coronavirus so far in Bulgaria, and a total of five adverse reactions have been reported.
He said that of the five vaccinators with adverse reactions, two were men and three were women, aged between 29 and 53.
Among them, three inoculated patients showed pain and redness and swelling at the inoculation site; one inoculation showed muscle pain and fever; and the other inoculation showed dizziness and nausea, and the above adverse reactions disappeared in a relatively short time.
Kirilov believes that these reactions are in line with the role and characteristics of the vaccine.
According to reports, Bulgaria will receive a report issued by the European Union Medical Bureau on January 21, which mainly involves the statistics and analysis of adverse reactions in the vaccination process of EU member states.
And the Bulgarian Ministry of Health will also launch a research project within a few months to understand when antibodies will be produced in the vaccinated person.
Kirilov also revealed that two more batches of 35,000 doses each of the novel coronavirus arrived in Bulgaria from January 18 to 22 and early February.
