Is There a Relationship Between COVID-19 VACCINE and Tinnitus?

Relationship Between COVID-19 VACCINE and Tinnitus

Relationship Between COVID-19 VACCINE and Tinnitus. A study by audiologists at the University of Manchester found that a significant number of patients reported a deterioration in their hearing after hospitalisation for Covid-19 which can indicate that there is a relationship between COVID 19 Vaccine and Tinnitus.

It is January 2021, and now in the midst of  this pandemic, and now with the advent of   two new vaccines, so-called messenger  RNA vaccines to prevent SARS-CoV-2,   people ask the reasonable question: Since this  is a new strategy, a new way to make a vaccine,   what are the long-term effects? How are we  going to know about the long-term effects? Well, vaccines like any medical product that have  a positive effect can have a negative effect,   and that’s true here too.

So for example, vaccines  like the oral polio vaccine was a rare cause of   polio; it occurred in maybe 1 per 2.4 million  people, but it was real. Yellow fever   vaccine was a rare cause of something that  had the fancy name viscerotropic disease,   which is really basically a form of yellow fever;  again, occurred in about 1 in a million people;   it was rare, but it was real.

There was  a squalene adjuvanted influenza vaccine   that was used in Europe that was also a very  rare cause of something called narcolepsy,   which is a permanent disorder of wakefulness. And,  measles-containing vaccine can cause a lowering of   the platelet count, which can cause these sort  of like broken blood vessels called petechiae;   again, occurred in maybe 1 in  30,000 people — rare but real.

Terrible side effects

The good news about these  terrible side effects is that  they all occur within six weeks of a  dose. That’s why it is that the FDA,  the Food and Drug Administration, insisted that  each of these vaccines be studied for at least two   months after the last dose, knowing that there’s  not been a serious side effect in history that   hasn’t occurred within weeks of getting the  dose, within six weeks of getting the dose.

So, although some of those effects are long term  like polio or narcolepsy, they’re still picked up   within six weeks. So I think in those preapproval  studies where the vaccines have been tested   in tens of thousands of people, you could say with  confidence that there wasn’t at least a relatively   uncommon, serious side effect.

And now that the  vaccine has been given to more than 10 million   people, I think you can say with some confidence  that there doesn’t appear to be right now a very   rare, serious side effect that would be something  that would cause a long-term problem.

But again,   we need to be humble, keep our eyes open and  look what happens as we vaccinate hundreds   and hundreds of millions of people to make  sure that there’s not an additional problem.
