Though some people died after receiving the mRNA-based COVID-19 vaccines, there is no certainty that the vaccines caused those deaths.
Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna vaccines are based on mRNA technology that uses the body's cells to produce an essential viral protein to combat the coronavirus. Cahill's statement is baseless and does not have credible evidence to back the claim.
Researches published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information hold that mRNA vaccines can induce a balanced immune response comprising both cellular and humoral immunity. The WHO states that the Moderna mRNA-1273 vaccine can be used against COVID-19 in people aged 18 years and older. The vaccine is safe in people with an increased risk of severe diseases and stable chronic infections. But people with a history of a critical allergic effect to any vaccine component should not receive this or any other mRNA vaccine. Old age people should not take the dose.
Norwegian Medicines Agency doctors said that twenty-three patients died after receiving the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, but there is no specific connection between these deaths and the vaccine. Steinar Madsen, Medical Director of the NOMA, said that they had investigated thirteen of the deaths. They reported that the common mRNA vaccines' side-effects, such as fever, nausea, and diarrhea, may have contributed to a fatal outcome in some elderly patients. This vaccine is not dangerous in younger patients. He emphasized that these are rare occurrences in very frail patients with severe disease. There was no direct link between the deaths and the vaccinations. No records prove that people died a few months after receiving an mRNA vaccine.
The COVID-19 pandemic has given rise to a lot of potentially dangerous misinformation. For reliable advice on COVID-19 including symptoms, prevention and available treatment, please refer to the World Health Organisation or your national healthcare authority.
