Allen, the legendary American baseball star, died the day before yesterday at the age of 86. Since he was vaccinated with the new crown vaccine on January 5, some people on the Internet immediately speculated that the cause of his death might be related to the vaccine. Local experts worried that the event would damage public confidence in the vaccine, and called on the relevant departments to explain the efficacy of the vaccine more actively, and use data to explain to the public that there is not necessarily a relationship between the vaccine and the death of the vaccinator Off.
Ostholm, director of the center for infectious disease research and policy at the University of Minnesota, believes that Alan’s death is an important “educational moment” in the public medical community. Health experts need to cite facts to prove that many elderly people who suffered from heart disease, stroke or other diseases or happened to die after an injection, but they did not die because of the vaccine. Ostholm stressed that health experts need to let the public know this Some cases are accidental events, which can build people’s confidence in the vaccine.
Orlenstein, former director of CDC’s immunization program, also pointed out that clinical trial data confirmed that the vaccine would not cause death. If people were misled by misinformation and did not believe in the safety of the vaccine, the situation was undoubtedly worrying. ● comprehensive report
