Myocarditis, pericarditis and thrombocytopenia. And again anemia, hearing and eye problems. The British government publishes a weekly report on suspected adverse reactions to vaccines against COVID-19. The data covers all vaccines available in the UK (AstraZeneca, Moderna and Pfizer) and includes data as of 10 November 2021.
The tables shown on the www.gov.uk website for AstraZeneca report 840,295 adverse reactions, of which 1,122 were fatal that occurred within 60 days after injection. There have been 56,310 suspected adverse reactions for Moderna so far, of which 19 are fatal. Adverse reactions for Pfizer/Biotech, instead, were 370,739, of which 611 were fatal. The data is based on “yellow cards”, cards compiled by British family doctors and sent to the MHRA which is the British equivalent of the Italian Medicines Agency.
But how many doses of the vaccine have been injected in the UK so far? 45 million for Pfizer and AstraZeneca and 2.8 million for Moderna, respectively. According to data published by the MHRA, a total of 49.2 million first doses, 44.8 million second doses and 13.8 million third doses have been administered to date in the UK.
