Have any of you had the Astra Zenica vaccine and if so has it effected your spinal cord, I'm trying to decide if I should have it done

Yes. Had the AZ vaccine. The only after effects were flu type shivers, runny nose and eyes which lasted for a day snd a half. That was two weeks ago.

AstraZeneca is not a mRNA vaccine like Pfizer and Moderna. There are some concerns by NIH and others if you google it.

There are more concerns about dementia and other long-haul effects after having COVID-19. Damage to organs in the body is being seen in many patients who had Covid-19 now. So I definitely thought I should take the vaccine!

Since we are learning more about the virus and it’s mutant strains every day I suppose we have to do research every day. I have taken 2 shots of the Moderna vaccine and didn’t have any bad reactions. I was concerned because I’m allergic to so many things but it was not a problem. The doctor made me wait 30 minutes after the vaccine to observe me for reactions. My arm was sore for about 2-3 days.

The polyethylene glycol is part of the protective covering around the mRNA that allows your cells to absorb it. This is the thing that some people are allergic to. It’s the same stuff that is in miralax.

How could it affect your spinal cord? It’s a little intramuscular jab! 13 million people have now had it in the UK! Very few people here have refused it because it is safe and effective!
