We've analysed the data from our injured UK CV Family members and have found that:
In our UK-based sample of 181 COVID-19 vaccine injured patients, the majority (80 %) were women, with an average age of 44 years old (though these reactions spanned all age groups, with one of our youngest being 21 and our oldest at 70 years young).
Most reactions (73 %) occurred after the 1st dose. Most of these reactions were from AstraZeneca (73 % first dose and 50 % second dose reactions), likely due to the higher rollout of AstraZeneca in the UK. We also have patients with reactions to Pfizer, Moderna, and J&J. Those who reacted to Pfizer were typically younger than those reacting to AstraZeneca, which may have been influenced by policy change whereby Pfizer was recommended for younger people. The vast majority of us had our reactions within a day or two of getting vaccinated. However, a minority of reactions manifested after a more extended timeframe (e.g. over 50 days post-vaccination).
Our group reported 42 individual symptoms, with most experiencing multiple symptoms. Most common symptoms included paraesthesia (e.g. tingling and numbness), pain, fatigue, and heart problems, whilst fewer reported issues like hair loss, hearing loss, and seizures. The vast majority who responded to our survey had no formal diagnosis. The minority who had received a diagnosis reported inflammation, postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS), mast cell activation syndrome (MCAS), autoimmunity, small fibre neuropathy, ME, and others.
As you can see from the data above, last analysed in April 2022, we could use your help. Please reach out to help our UK CV Family by sending us a message at email@example.com.
