11 Jun. 21 – Prof. Dr. Yong Phuworawan, Head of the Center specializing in Clinical Virology Faculty of Medicine Chulalongkorn University Post messages via Facebook about COVID-19, vaccine, side effects and adverse reactions. Contents are as follows:
early vaccination The most common vaccine used is Sinovac, and in the elderly, AstraZeneca is used.
Problems with side effects will rarely find
Currently, the use of the vaccine will primarily be AstraZeneca and will need to be continued in large numbers. Sinovac will be an adjunct.
From the study of the center In fact, both vaccines were given to all ages from 18 years of age and older.
I would like to say that Sinovac vaccine has fewer side effects than AstraZeneca, especially in fever. pain at the injection site Flu-like aches and pains, headaches. In this study, the AstraZeneca patients were vaccinated. We even gave paracetamol home.
The figure below shows a comparison of the center’s studies. can clearly see the difference
Symptoms of AstraZeneca vaccine are found to be young. more than the elderly and women will have more symptoms than men When looking at the side effects compared to vaccines injected abroad, especially those in the mRNA group, they were no different.
As for the Sinovac vaccine, these side effects are much less, as shown in the figure.
Therefore, people who are vaccinated with AstraZeneca if they have a fever or headache. diarrhea, vomiting body aches flu-like is a symptom that can be found after vaccination, so after vaccination when returning home if there are such symptoms You can take paracetamol. You don’t have to wait for the fever to rise. or aches and pains and can be repeated every 4-6 hours, such symptoms will last about 1-2 days, will be healed.
In addition to having many symptoms such as high fever for several days or very high, severe headache and taking medicine and not recovering should consult a doctor
if everyone understands will not be worried Whether it is a virus vector or mRNA vaccine, the vaccine has more side effects than the inactivated vaccine. Evidence-Based
