The intensive vaccination process continued for months to protect against the coronavirus epidemic in Turkey. In our country, Pfizer/BioNTech, known as Sinovac, is used, a German vaccine developed by China. According to Sinovac, those who are hesitant to get the Biontech vaccine question the side effects of the Biontech vaccine. The vaccine developed by BioNTech differs from traditional vaccines due to the new technology that is used. The BioNTech vaccine uses technology known as mRNA (messenger RNA or messenger RNA).
ACTION FOR DAMAGE AGAINST BIONTECH VACCINE
The vaccine developed by the company BioNTech, which is used in many countries of the world in the coronavirus epidemic, became the subject of investigation after the damages proceedings filed regarding the side effects of the vaccine. In the lawsuit filed in Germany, where the company is headquartered, the plaintiff, who demanded that his identity be kept secret, is seeking at least €150,000 in compensation for alleging that the vaccine had side effects on his body. Plaintiff states that after vaccination he suffered from pain in the upper body, swelling in the hands and feet, sleep disturbances and fatigue.
BioNTech Türkiye origin Prof. dr. Özlem Türeci and Prof. It was founded by Uğur Şahin. Türeci and his wife Şahin received the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany in 2021 for their “services to humanity”.
WHAT IS mRNA, WHAT ARE THE CHARACTERISTICS OF mRNA VACCINS?
This method is actually based on copying the genetic structure of the virus. mRNA, or “messenger RNA” (ribonucleic acid), It is known as a biomolecule produced from DNA. In mRNA vaccines, unlike traditional vaccines, the body receives the mRNA from a protein of the virus instead of the weakened pathogen. So the idea is that the immune system will work without the virus and produce antibodies against the virus.
Scientists say the widespread use of mRNA-engineered vaccines for the Covid-19 pandemic could be a breakthrough for many other diseases. In this technique, part of the genetic code of the virus is taken and coated with oil to enter cells. This fluid is injected into humans. Thus, the genetic code of the virus is delivered to human cells. The vaccine causes cells to produce a copy of the hedgehog protein that allows the coronavirus to enter the cell. Similarly, the immune system produces antibodies and T cells begin to fight against these structures that the body considers harmful.
William Schaffner, professor of preventive medicine at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, defines mRNA technology as “21st century science” and argues that positive data from mRNA-based Covid-19 vaccines hold significant potential in addressing future outbreaks of infectious diseases.
mRNA IS VACCINE SAFE, HOW MUCH?
Being a new technology, it has been at the center of many unfounded claims and conspiracy theories lately. However, these claims have no scientific basis. There is no question of changing the genetic makeup or DNA of people. Vaccines developed using this technology are not very durable. For this reason, it must be transported and stored at a very cold temperature. The UK Joint Vaccine Commission has announced that the vaccines developed by BioNTech and Moderna have undergone very rigorous and detailed studies regarding their safety, and that these vaccines have been approved for use after a firm belief that they are safe. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, stating that work on mRNA technology has been going on for 10 years, describes these vaccines as “new but familiar.”
REPORTED AND EXPECTED SIDE EFFECTS OF mRNA VACCINES
The most common side effects of the vaccine are headache, fever, fatigue and muscle aches. The EMA’s statement stated that the vaccine carries a very low risk of “heart muscle” and “inflammation of the pericardium” in young men.
National writer Dr. Ümit Aktaş wrote about the reported and predicted side effects of mRNA vaccines during the epidemic period. Dr. Ümit Aktaş’s article titled “Playing the three monkeys” reads as follows:
“Ignore it, pretend it’s nothing, wouldn’t the problems go away if we didn’t talk about it? Unfortunately, playing the three monkeys won’t do anyone any good. Today we’re going to talk about the possible side effects of vaccines .” , both reported and predicted. There are mRNA-based vaccines in the spotlight. Shortly after vaccination,” he said. ; those who died due to excessive coagulation of the blood …
It is possible to talk about many cases related to corona vaccines. While the global vaccine campaign is in full swing, reports of vaccine adverse effects are on the rise. For example, after receiving the second dose of the mRNA-based vaccine of German origin in Israel, 62 people, mostly men and under 30 years of age, developed myocarditis (infection of the heart muscle), two of whom died (1) (a 22-year-old woman and a 35-year-old man). Both had no health problems until they were vaccinated.
These and similar side effects are reported to US institutions such as CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) and FDA (Food and Drug Administration). What are they doing? With a little warning note they say: “Keep vaccinating, the most effective method of protection is vaccination”! You’ll see it when you go to CDC’s site. The site writes that the mRNA-based vaccine is at risk of causing heart inflammation, especially in young men, with an increase in reported cases of myocarditis and pericarditis since April. (2) This risk, glossed over with a few sentences, amounts to vaccine propaganda.
WHAT ABOUT THE LONG TERM SIDE EFFECTS?
“Worse than the disease? The publication “Reviewing Some Possible Unintended Consequences of the mRNA Vaccines Against COVID-19” draws attention to the potential side effects of vaccines developed against COVID-19, especially mRNA-based vaccines. (4) According to the study, many of the side effects of mRNA-based vaccines can occur in subsequent years. The publication notes that within 10 years there could be a sudden increase in neurodegenerative diseases seen at a much younger age, blood disorders manifested by excessive bleeding or clotting, stroke and heart attacks.
The immune system is extremely complex and complex. There is always the possibility that you will have an unexpected reaction when you try to trick the immune system with a vaccine. For example…
– Allergic reactions can occur
– May cause neurodegenerative diseases
– Risk of heart attack and stroke
– Risk of developing an autoimmune disease
BIONTECH VACCINE SIDE EFFECTS BY AGE
Side effects after vaccination are often mild. This; These are mild side effects such as tiredness, headache, fever, chills, muscle/joint pain, vomiting, diarrhoea, pain in the injection area, redness and swelling. However, without neglecting the possibility of allergic reactions, although rare, you should not forget to contact the nearest health facility and inform the doctor that you have recently been vaccinated in case of discomfort after vaccination.
