COVID-19: Mzansi Divided Over the BioNTech, Pfizer Vaccine & its Side Effects
There’s a raging debate right now on the possible side effects of coronavirus vaccines, especially the one from pharmaceutical giant Pfizer.
There are reports that some people have died after taking the Pfizer vaccine. Some of those who took the Pfizer shot have also reportedly had adverse reactions.
Opinions are currently seriously divided, with the pro-vaccine crowd jamming heads with anti-vaxxers. According to some members of the pro-vaccine crowd, vaccination is a choice people made and they should be respected for that, whatever the results.
The anti-vaxxers have not only condemned the alleged side effects of the Pfizer vaccine, but they have also called out influencers and those who forced or otherwise encouraged others to get vaccinated.
By the way, according to the World Health Organization, among the common side effects of the BioNTech, Pfizer vaccine are headache, joint ache, muscle ache, chills, tiredness, fever, as well as swelling at the injection point.
In contrast, a report by the New York Times, citing the document on the BioNTech, Pfizer vaccine as released by the manufacturer, noted it has about 1291 side effects.
It turns out the report hasn’t stopped people from taking the vaccine, nor has it stopped people from encouraging others to take it.
