Model Kris Smith’s ex-girlfriend was diagnosed with a rare condition after being hit by Pfizer, but she still urges Australians to get excited.
A Network Ten employee who revealed she was diagnosed with a rare heart condition after receiving the puncture from Pfizer urged Australians to get vaccinated.
Hannah Scott, an insights manager at the station who once dated British model Kris Smith, took to her Instagram Wednesday morning to share that she suffered from pericarditis.
The pericardium is a thin, two-layered, fluid-filled sac that covers the outer surface of the heart, and the condition (pericarditis) is inflammation of that outer lining of the organ.
In a lengthy Instagram post from her hospital bed, Ms Scott, who dated Smith in 2017, said she is not “sorry” to have been beaten, nor is it her intention to dissuade anyone from getting vaccinated. Daily Mail Australia reported.
“I am not posting this out of sympathy and I am certainly not an anti-vaccine. I am in favor of abortion and my choice was to get vaccinated, ”he said.
“As a result, I am in the unfortunate percentile that has been diagnosed with pericarditis (inflammation of the heart), a rare side effect of Pfizer.”
He said he had symptoms of the rare heart condition “almost immediately” after receiving his first dose of the vaccine, adding that he had pins and needles in his arm and hand.
Chills and dizziness were common. I kept going and four days ago (a week after the puncture) my heart started racing uncontrollably, making it difficult to lower my heart rate enough to sleep (my heart is still racing today). “
Hannah said she started having chest pains on Tuesday and that’s when she was taken to the hospital.
He shared a photo from his hospital bed with EKG stickers on his chest.
Hannah also explained that the reason for its publication was not to discourage people from getting vaccinated, but to make people aware of the symptoms when they receive them.
“The purpose of this post is to highlight that if you feel any of these symptoms, get checked to be sure, because this side effect is rarely discussed, even though my doctors say they have seen it more often lately.” she said.
“I don’t regret my decision as the long-term effects of Covid can be much worse and I don’t want anyone to get vaccinated.
“Just to point out that there are vaccine options and be aware of your symptoms.”
Hannah also added that she is expected to “make a full recovery” and have a “new appreciation” for the doctors and nurses who have been treating her.
Channel 7 reporter Denham Hitchcock also recently revealed that he, too, had suffered pericarditis as a result of the jab.
Like Hannah, Hitchcock also suffered from tingling hands, shortness of breath, and some chest pains.
In his extensive Instagram post last month, the journalist told his 35,100 followers that he is not against the vaccine.
“But I’m not pro vax either. I am pro choice, and pro information to make that decision, ”he said. “Above all, I am a PRO opening the damn country and to do that I don’t see any way to stop most of Australia from getting vaccinated. So I got the opportunity from Pfizer. “
Hitchcock went into great detail about his symptoms of the rare condition, but later edited the video, allegedly after his employer stepped in and spoke with him.
According to NSW Health, myocarditis or pericarditis can occur separately or together and have been reported as rare side effects after Covid-19 mRNA vaccines, including Pfizer and Moderna.
“Most cases of myocarditis and pericarditis related to mRNA vaccination have been mild and patients have recovered quickly,” he said. site state.
The extremely rare side effect affects approximately one in 74,000 people who receive the Pfizer vaccine. In studies abroad, according to tip from the Australian Department of Health, particularly affects men under the age of 30 after receiving their second dose.
The executive director of the Victor Chang Heart Research Institute, Professor Jason Kovacic, told news.com.au that cases of myocarditis and pericarditis after receiving the Pfizer vaccine occur “only very, very rarely.”
“Approximately 60 people per million can get myocarditis from mRNA vaccines (Pfizer and Moderna) and it is generally a mild, short-lived disease. These complications cause inflammation of the heart muscle or inflammation of the lining around the heart muscle, ”explained Professor Kovacic.
“These complications have been reported in only a handful of people worldwide and, to our knowledge, most of them have recovered. In contrast, (the) risk of having some heart complications if you contract Covid-19 is about 1,000 times higher, between 5 and 10 percent. “
It has also been stated that, as of July 25, 84 cases of pericarditis had been reported in Australia to the Therapeutic Goods Administration (ATGA) after the Pfizer vaccine.
“It is important to bear in mind that not all of them are necessarily caused by the vaccine, since myocarditis and pericarditis occur in the absence of vaccination; for example, for people aged 18 to 34, the estimated incidence in women is 16 per million (95% prediction interval 8-32), and for men it is 37 (16-88) ”, the Guide on myocarditis and pericarditis report Explain.
