Although definitely effective in preventing the occurrence of serious forms of Covid-19, vaccines against the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus are not completely devoid of side effects…National Agency for the Safety of Medicines and Health Products (ANSM) thus identified several “events and signals to watch” in connection with the administration of anti-Covid vaccines: high blood pressure, myocarditis, pericarditis, heavy menstrual bleeding…
People affected by post-vaccination side effects (against Covid-19 or other) can report them on the adverse reaction reporting portal dedicated, launched by the Ministry of Health.
Side effects of anti-Covid vaccines: especially inflammation of the heart
Precisely: this June 30, 2021, theNational organization for compensation of medical accidents (Oniam) announced that it had ruled on the right to compensation for 241 files concerning post-Covid vaccination disorders. To date, 72 French people have therefore received compensation, ie 30% of the files studied. Oniam still has to look into 768 cases, since the organization has received a total of 1,020 claims for compensation.
At the top of the health concerns mentioned in the claims, there are pericarditis and myocarditis: these inflammations of the heart muscle represent 211 files. Then come neurological disorders (196 cases, including 33 which specifically concern facial paralysis), strokes, thrombosis and pulmonary embolisms (129 cases), joint disorders (91 cases), hearing disorders (67 cases) and dermatological disorders (31 files).
Since the start of the anti-Covid-19 vaccination (at the end of 2020), 150 million doses have been administered in France. The ANSM has identified 193,571 potential side effects.
