This is another comment made by a Maltese man on Facebook about the side effects he started experiencing after taking the Johnson and Johnson Covid-19 vaccine. The man said that he had to take the said vaccine because necessity dictated so; yet, up till this day, the man started experiencing symptoms which he never suffered from before taking the vaccine. The symptoms range from pain to numbness in his fingers, headache, and high to low blood pressure. He says “I NEVER HAD THESE BEFORE”. A doctor and experts told him that it is a coincidence and that the vaccine has nothing to do with it. The man does not believe them and is 100% sure of how his health was before the vaccine and after. He adds that he will surely not going to take the booster.
Then another man replied to his comment saying that he knows of people who have become severely affected by blood pressure after taking the vaccine and that have been admitted to hospital twice because of this same reason.
Why are local medical staff refusing to see the link between the vaccine and the side effects that people themselves are experiencing? Why don’t local medical staff believe the patients? After all, we all know our bodies well, more than third persons, including doctors. So, I am sure that these people know the state of their health before taking the vaccine and how their health changed and was affected for the worse after taking the vaccine. This is a repeated scenario of when a GP gives us medicine and advises that if we feel any side effects, we are to call him so s/he changes medicine. So why are vaccines considered so immune to creating side effects? Why is there this big trust in vaccines?
If only local medical staff starts questioning and seeing the link. Maybe they can put their concerns to the local authorities. But in Malta, speaking up is a rare thing. Why is this so?
Is this another matter of money talks?
