Most often they complained of pain at the injection site, headache and fatigue. There were also two cases of allergic reaction.
The number of Pfizer / BioNTech vaccination side effects reported in the Netherlands has already reached a hundred. This was announced by the director of the Lareb Side Effects Center, Agnes Kant.
Agnes Kant noted that two cases of a severe allergic reaction are known to date.
“These were symptoms such as a rash and swelling around the eyes. These people were helped and recovered quickly,” Kant said.
In other cases, residents of the Netherlands complained of pain at the injection site, headache and fatigue.
It is noted that side effects are a natural consequence of vaccination, as the drug activates the immune system. So far, about 47,000 people have received vaccines in the Netherlands.
“For every 10,000 vaccinations we had estimated there would be 20 to 25 reports, so this is in line with our estimates. But we are also not being told all the side effects,” Kant added.
