Be careful if you have been vaccinated by Pfizer! The state of vaccination in France with the side effects revealed.
Suddenly, the whole world could breathe a sigh of relief at the discovery of this new Pfizer vaccine. Vaccination campaigns follow one another. Despite many reservations, they went well. Today, nearly 78% of the French population is fully vaccinated.
The government has made every effort to achieve this, in particular through the vaccination card. This was strongly contested. Especially since the Pfizer (or Pfizer-BioNTech, or Cominarty) vaccine, like all its competitors, is not very effective against the Delta and Omicron variants.
On the other hand, it prevents the development of serious forms of the disease. The number of deaths related to COVID-19 has fallen sharply.
However, despite the very positive macroscopic results, some people paid the price for the vaccination.

Pfizer in the crosshairs of the French National Medicines Safety Agency
The National Agency for the Safety of Medicines and Health Products is a French public institution.
Its main mission is to assess the health risks presented by medicines and health products intended for humans. Since the COVID-19 pandemic, Pfizer’s vaccines and those of its competitors have come under scrutiny.
In March 2022, the agency produced a detailed report on monitoring adverse events following vaccination with Pfizer-BioNTech. This report is not very reassuring. It shows the appearance of various symptoms but also of a syndrome which seems to be linked to the vaccination.

Evidence is accumulating against the adverse effects of this vaccination. Laboratories will have to be accountable and not only to their shareholders! https://t.co/dPhcD73zPU

The National Medicines Safety Agency has carried out new analyzes and statistics on the cases reported since the start of vaccination following the assessment carried out in report 18 published on September 24, 2021. In total, no less than 43 cases Parsonage-Turner syndrome were identified, of which 27 occurred during the new study period.
Parsonage-Turner syndrome is also known as amyotrophic neuralgia. The main symptom is inflammation of the brachial plexus, i.e. a group of nerves, which lies between the shoulder and the collarbone.
This can eventually lead to muscle loss. This condition seems to mainly affect men around the age of 40.
Parsonage-Turner syndrome causes severe pain and a feeling of electric shock. The arm is painful and becomes heavy. The disease proceeds in three distinct phases. First, the inflammatory phase leads to intense pain in the shoulder. Then, those affected see their strength and mobility decrease. Finally, there is a loss of muscle mass.
The detailed study of serious cases after vaccination by Pfizer
The National Agency for the Safety of Medicines reviewed and analyzed all cases with an expert neurologist. 18 of the cases presented did not establish a direct link with the Pfizer vaccine.

However, for the remaining 25 cases, a causal link could be established. 7 of these cases of Parsonage-Turner syndrome occurred after the first dose, 14 others after the second dose, and the last 4 cases occurred after the booster dose.
Of these 25 cases linked to the Pfizer vaccination, 9 patients are completely cured or in the process of being so. One patient recovered but has sequelae. Finally, 14 patients are still not cured, indicates the National Agency for the Safety of Medicines and Health Products in its progress report of March 19, 2022.
The National Agency for the Safety of Medicines and Health Products (ANSMP) has counted 8 cases of a particular form of Parsonage-Turner syndrome. We speak of focal form, atypical form or early form. These are clinical terms. They were also able to see a relapse in a person with a history of Parsonage-Turner, from which she had apparently fully recovered.
Stranger still, a case report shows a case of contralateral Parsonage-Turner syndrome in the arm vaccinated by Pfizer. In other words, the person presented the symptoms in the opposite arm. There are many other specific cases to add to the list. However, we must remain positive. These 49 cases of Parsonage-Turner syndrome are nothing compared to the 109,210,000 injections that have been performed as of March 10, 2022.
