Report released by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) showed that four volunteers for the Pfizer-BioNTech trials developed Bell’s palsy, a temporary facial paralysis, a few days after taking the shot. The article by the Daily Mail UK attached below reveals that the Bell’s palsy “were the only side effect that the FDA saw as ‘imbalanced’ with more occurring in the vaccine group than in the placebo group”. The FDA says that there was no clear way that the vaccine caused the Bell’s palsy.
Editor’s Note: As the article has noted, no one actually knows what causes Bell’s palsy and that it has previously been linked to vaccines. And though others may see Bell’s palsy as non-life threatening, it is serious enough as it prevents those who experienced the condition from continuing with their normal routines until the condition is resolved.
Moreover, as no one knows what triggers the Bell’s palsy among the participants, and it is the role of the government to do due diligence in order to protect its citizens. It is not the role of government agencies to defend a pharmaceutical company from critics [Remember Bill Gates saying that the FDA will be thorough in its vaccine approvals? See Gates tries to justify side effects of fast tracked vaccines].
Four volunteers who got Pfizer's vaccine developed Bell's palsy
Bell's palsy is a form of temporary facial paralysis with no known cause, but respiratory infections are a risk factor. Four people who got Pfizer's shot developed Bell's, but none did in the placebo group.
