According to this, the reporting rate of side effects per 1000 vaccinations was 11.89 for AstraZeneca, 3.32 for Moderna, 1.73 for BioNTech / Pfizer and 2.97 for Janssen vaccine (Johnson & Johnson). Of more than eleven million vaccinations from December 27, 2020 through November 5, 2021 inclusive, there were 37,542 reports of suspected Side effects in a temporal context. In addition to reactions at the injection site, headache or tiredness (in about 53 percent each), muscle pain or malaise (44 percent), fever (33 percent), joint pain (26 percent), chills (32 percent) and fever over 38 degrees (eight Percent) also in the clinical studies on the most frequently reported vaccine reactions. The majority were mild to moderate in intensity and disappeared within a few days.
175 deaths were reported to the BASG close to a vaccination – 128 at BioNTech / Pfizer, 18 at Moderna, 26 at AstraZeneca and three at Janssen. In five patients, an association with the vaccination could be ruled out on the basis of the autopsy report. In 20 people, the vaccination fell during the incubation period of a Covid 19 disease during which the patients died. A further 34 had serious previous illnesses that were presumably the cause of death.
In two cases, a connection with the vaccination is currently seen. The death of the 49-year-old patient who died after a Covid-19 vaccination with the AstraZeneca vaccine as a result of severe coagulation disorders was classified as a combination of thrombosis and thrombocytopenia, also known as vaccine-induced thrombotic thrombocytopenia (VITT). According to the current state of knowledge, the death of a 36-year-old patient after a Covid-19 vaccination with the Janssen vaccine is also assigned to the clinical picture of a VITT. 114 further cases are still being clarified or no further information could be obtained. Investigations into whether there is a connection with the vaccination are ongoing. (APA / red)
