Vaccine anomalies

 

Sir, – I write as one of the “anomalies” within the lifting of Covid 19 restrictions.

I received the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine and unfortunately had a severe reaction of myocarditis and pericarditis which is now a recognised side-effect.

I was one of a tiny percentage who had adverse reactions in a very successful vaccine programme. I continue to slowly recover. I am a nurse and know how essential this vaccine programme is to protect each other and protect our health service. I believe that anyone who can take the vaccine has a responsibility to do so.

As I cannot take the second dose I do not have a Covid pass and cannot enter a coffee shop or restaurant until next February.

I am in a small group of people who cannot take the vaccine on medical advice. We have been forgotten about and placed in the same group as the people who have “chosen” not to take the vaccine.

A letter from one’s doctor and a negative antigen test should surely be considered for this small group of people.

– Yours, etc,

BRÍD RYAN,
