The symptoms previously known as a normal reaction proving that the vaccine was effective, now in retrospect, could be a sign that the recipient has caught the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Virus (COVID-19).
It is common to experience several side effects from COVID-19 vaccines. The most common symptoms are headache, muscle pain, fever, and nausea. But those who report swollen lymph nodes after a vaccine injection are because their immune system reacts to the doses, according to a report in mid-April by ParkView. In general, health officials advise vaccine takers to remain calm while experiencing such physical reactions.
This new study, published on April 15 with a disclaimer that it has not yet been peer-reviewed, reported by FoxNews, indicates another scenario.
The researchers of the study uploaded on preprint server medRxiv suggested that when an individual has swollen lymph nodes after being inoculated with the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, it’s likely that the person is already a victim of the virus.
The research observed 947 medical staff in the United Kingdom who were injected with the first dose of the mRNA vaccine. More than a quarter of the subjects (roughly 265) had already been infected with coronavirus beforehand, and most of them reported having lymphadenopathy (swollen lymph node) reactions after taking the jab.
The study results indicate about 4% of those who had previously fought COVID-19 (CCP Virus) registered this side effect after vaccination, compared to less than 1% of those who had never been infected. Furthermore, previously infected respondents were more susceptible to the usual reaction to the vaccines, namely fever, fatigue, muscle, and joint pain.
Only 2% of clear infection history respondents reported catching a fever after vaccination. On the other hand, those with a pre-Covid background account for 8% of fever side effects.
Similar trends repeat with the proportions for muscle pain and fatigue reaction. Those who had caught the virus would take up 30% and 29% compared to 15% and 20% of respondents with a clear history, respectively.
The researchers concluded that while there were associations between prior COVID-19 infection and the likelihood of self-reported post-vaccination side effects, including lymphadenopathy, their findings have “several limitations.”
