Manila, Philippines — Naitala ng Food and Drug Administration (FDA) ang nasa 76,837 adverse events following immunization (AEFI) o 0.1 percent lamang ng higit 75 milyong naturukan laban sa COVID-19.

“So far, our suspected adverse events are less than 0.1 percent of total doses administered, but we’ve had reports of 76,000, and a majority of them are very mild. Only 0.005 percent (3,874) are serious adverse reactions,” saad ni FDA Director General Eric Domingo.

“The adverse event may be an unfavorable or unintended sign, abnormal laboratory symptom or disease.”

Naunang sinabi ng DOH na mayroong serious adverse events na naranasan ang ilan.

“In our country, the most common things that are reported are an increase in blood pressure, especially before and right after vaccination. Of course, patients tend to be anxious on the day of vaccination. A fever would be the second one, headaches, pain on the area of vaccination, panghihina (fatigue), some get chills, muscle pain, cough, dizziness, and tiredness. These are the most common adverse events that we see,” dagdag pa ni Domingo.  RNT/FGDC
