Covid19 vaccine and cardiac arrest

Post by abbby » Fri, 19 Feb 2021 12:33 pm

The man who had cardiac arrest shortly after the vaccine, so it's difficult to determine if he actually had cardiac arrest from the vaccine, but then is it generally safe for all? How about people with underlying medical conditions?

I've had the vaccine.

And I do have underlying medical conditions which are under control with medications, including blood pressure, cholesterol and diabetes.

What I did experience was joint pain, probably 2 weeks after the first injection. And I'm not
even 100% sure it's related to the vaccine, but it is a known side effect.

My second injection I had last week. I was anticipating an increase in pain in my joints, but
so far I'm still waiting.

I'll be having my 1st injection on Sunday afternoon. Will be interesting as while I don't have and diabetes I do have medication controlled HBP & Cholesterol as well, but these are not considered underlying medical conditions, at least not according to the checklist I had to fill out last night online to schedule my jabs.

Everything that I've read and the seminars I've been to recently (a member of the PA here for over a dozen years now) all indicate the HBP and cholesterol will not prevent one from getting the vaccine. The checklist I went through the night before last is the one you have to fill out before you are allow to schedule the jabs via the MOH website set up for that purpose. You cannot access it unless you were recommended by an organization for early vaccination and approved. (the PA arranged mine) But you had to fill out a medical history questionnaire with the proper boxes ticked before you are allow to schedule an appointment (mine is at 2:30 Sunday afternoon. After the jab I'll be required to have a seat and relax for 30 minutes of observation to ensure no anaphylactic shock or other symptoms show up and if they do, to do the needful.

My dad (in his 80’s) got the first jab about two weeks back. He is also on HBP & high cholesterol meds... he said there have been no noticeable side effects whatsoever.

Hey Mal, do you happen to know which vaccine he took? Just Curious. Singapore has just received it's first shipment of the Moderna vaccine. I'm pretty sure I'm getting the Pfizer one.

No worries. Will update with a play-by-play. That's actually the reason I've been scheduled to get it now as I'm part of RC who will be trying to convince those who have druthers about getting the vaccine (specifically the elderly over 70 - like me) in our estate. Walking lab rat as it were. :lol: :lol: :cool:

I’m pretty sure he got Pfizer, as he signed up to get the first available vaccine through the VA, and Pfizer was first out of the gate.

My mother-in-law in the states is 87, she just completed all two rounds of the vaccine. She did mention that she experienced joint pain and soreness in the arm where she received the vaccine, however aside from that she had no other side effects. She has diabetes, which she’s had for 20 or 30 years, but that was not an issue for her.

Well, so far, so good. Nothing noted and I can't even see where they jabbed me. No redness, no swelling and no discoloration (considering the bruising they do when taking blood samples). Of course the difference here is it is just jabbed into the muscle and not trying to find a blood vessel.

BTW, I checked with my dad this morning and surprisingly the VA is giving Moderna not Pfizer... the second dose is going to be 28 days after the first.

I told my dad that Moderna is the high tech stuff, cutting edge... to which my mom replied... maybe it will make him younger!

nearing 36 hours post jab. Still absolutely nothing noted outside of the usual 73 year old gripes. Still no sign of bruising or not even a knot like you usually get after an injection. So far a non-event. Hope it stays that way.
