COVID-19 Vaccine: Data Says Getting Vaccinated is Better than Catching Covid-19
Researchers compared the rate of adverse events that were present in vaccinated with unvaccinated people
If you haven’t had a shot of the COVID-19 vaccine jab, then this news is for you. New research from Israel has confirmed the fact that getting a COVID-19 vaccine is better than catching the deadly disease. The data was gathered as a result of a study that unveiled Pfizer/BioNTech mRNA vaccine was not at all associated with a higher risk of potential adverse events. Even for the rare, suspected complications (like myocarditis), the data said the risk was significantly higher in people who contracted COVID-19.
For those unaware, symptoms that show up after a drug or vaccine, like COVID-19 vaccine, are known as adverse effects. They might be side effects of the drug or vaccine, but they can also happen regardless of the drug. The study conducted in Israel had more than a million people, and the subjects were people who had taken the COVID-19 vaccine and even those who hadn’t taken it. Then the researchers compared the rate of adverse events that were present in vaccinated people with unvaccinated people who matched up in key demographics like age.
The result of the research stated that the vaccine was not associated with a higher risk of adverse events in 42 days after COVID-19 vaccination. There were some events that were linked to vaccination. However, the number was smaller than people who had confirmed COVID-19 and also had adverse effects.
According to the research, potentially severe adverse events were more common in people who had COVID-19 infection than people who didn’t and went for the COVID-19 vaccine jab. The rate of myocarditis, for instance, was 2.7 in 100,000 vaccinated individuals, but the same rate was 11 cases per 100,000 people who were infected. So, it’s a fourfold difference.
The research also made it clear that people who had contracted COVID-19 infection were more likely to have issues like kidney damage, heart attack, and pulmonary embolism than people who got the COVID-19 vaccine and weren’t infected.
In essence, this study has proven once again what experts have been saying: the benefits of the COVID-19 vaccine are far higher than any risks.
