Sinovac problems for seven recipients

Sinovac problems for seven recipients

Seven people suffered problems after receiving the Sinovac vaccine, a doctor from Chulalongkorn University said.

Thiravat Hemachudha of Chulalongkorn University posted on Facebook on Tuesday that six of them had partial paralysis in Rayong and one in Chon Buri.

Their conditions improved after doctors gave medication to dissolve blood clots, Dr Thiravat posted.

The hospitals had reported their conditions to the Public Health Ministry, he wrote. Their conditions might have been caused by certain lots of vaccines, not by all of the vaccines, he said.


The latest wave of Covid-19 is highly contagious with more severe cases expected in intensive care units (ICU), another doctor from Chulalongkorn Hospital said.
