A 31-year-old man lost consciousness after receiving the Fosun/BioNTech vaccine the day before (16th) and was sent to hospital that night.

Cui Junming, president of the Hong Kong Institute of Hospital Pharmacists, said that dizziness is a common side effect of the vaccine. In severe cases, the symptoms are similar to unconsciousness. Low blood sugar and nervousness may also cause fainting.

He suggested that people who get injections in the morning should eat breakfast to avoid hypoglycemia.

For chronically ill patients who have just changed the medicine or increased the dose, they should wait one to two weeks for the body to adapt to the new medicine before being vaccinated.

There is no data to prove that Fubital vaccine caused coma

Cui Junming said that he is not clear about the clinical condition of the unconscious patient, but generally speaking, there are several reasons that can cause fainting after the injection.

First of all, dizziness is a common side effect. In severe cases, the symptoms are similar to unconsciousness.

Insufficient blood sugar affects the brain and can cause fainting, but the patient will feel other physical problems before losing consciousness, such as fatigue, fast heartbeat, cold sweats, "personal drifting down" and so on.

In addition, if the patient feels scared or nervous before the injection, it may also trigger a vagus nerve response and then faint.

He emphasized that there is no foreign data to prove that Fubitai vaccine can cause coma.

Cui Junming puts forward three suggestions for vaccinators to avoid fainting after the injection.

He urged the public to eat breakfast before the morning injection, and not to excessive diet to lose weight, so as to avoid low blood sugar.

If citizens have a history of dizziness, they should inform the doctors of the vaccination center in advance. When the injection begins to feel dizzy, they should speak up as soon as possible.

He especially reminded patients with chronic diseases that if they are taking blood pressure medicine and diabetes medicine and have just changed the medicine or increased the dose, they should wait one to two weeks for the body to adapt to the new medicine before vaccinating.

Yesterday, 16 people were sent to the hospital after the injection, and 5 of them were required to stay in the hospital for observation.

Cui Junming believes that the number of people sent to hospital is not too large. Because the current vaccination center is cautious, only people who have mild discomfort will be sent to hospital for treatment. "Adverse reactions are the severity of symptoms, not the number of hospitalizations." He also urged. The Expert Committee on Evaluation of Clinical Events of New Coronary Vaccines explained that the seven deceased died after being vaccinated with Kexing. Whether the cause of death was indirectly related to the vaccine, so that the public can better understand the impact of the vaccine on the body, so as to relieve public doubts.
