Suffering after the first dose

Especially the nerves of the face of people suffering from this syndrome become weak. According to the study, seven cases of this disease have been reported in India after taking the vaccine. These seven people had received the first dose of the Covishield vaccine and between 10-22 days after that, symptoms of Guillain-Barre syndrome were seen in them.

The study, published in the journal Annals of Neurology, states that for people who got Guillain-Barre syndrome disease after taking the vaccine, both sides of their face were weak. Whereas, usually it is seen in less than 20 per cent of its cases. Researchers are also surprised that in such a short time this disease spread at a much faster rate than expected. However, researchers say that the corona vaccine is safe, but despite this, there is a need to be cautious.

These are the symptoms of Guillain-Barre

Researchers say that if any symptoms of the syndrome are seen after taking the vaccine, then the doctor should be contacted immediately. The symptoms of Guillain-Barre syndrome include weakness in the body, weak facial muscles, tingling in the extremities and irregular heartbeat. Significantly, in view of the threat of the third wave of the corona, a campaign is being run to increase the speed of vaccination in the country.
