KUWAIT CITY, Oct 24: Dr. Ahmad Abdul-Malik said swollen lymph nodes as a result of the third dose of the “Corona” vaccine ‘is no cause for concern’, reports Al-Anba daily. Dr. Abdul-Malik, a family medicine consultant and fellow of the British Royal College of Family Medicine, who holds a doctorate in family medicine, the Kuwait Institute for Medical Specialties 2012, and a fellowship in family medicine from the Royal College of Family Physicians of London International MRCGP 2012was commenting after the warnings issued by the chief vaccine officer at the US FDA (Food and Drug Administration) said there is no relationship to the vaccination against the “emerging corona virus”, the delay of menstruation in women, and the feeling of joint pain, rheumatoid and depression, saying: “We should not hold the vaccine responsible for any problem that occurs in the body.”
He went on to say, “We must know that anti-corona virus vaccine, especially when children take it, it is normal for there to be some symptoms that reflect the immune reaction that the body feels to produce antibodies. The third dose,” he said, “is a necessity not a luxury? This question has been the focus of the scientific, social and even political circles during the last period regarding the feasibility of giving the third dose of the vaccine against the “Corona” virus, especially after warnings issued by the chief vaccine officer in the US Food and Drug Administration about complications that may lead to swollen lymph nodes.
Dr. Abdul-Malik shed light on warnings issued by the chief vaccine officer of the FDA that have raised concerns about complications that the third dose of the vaccine may cause, leading to swollen lymph nodes for women, and when asked if the complications are serious, he said, “We must know that vaccination with the anti-Coronavirus vaccine, especially when children take it, it is normal for there to be some symptoms, which reflect the immune reaction that occurs in the body to produce antibodies in the form of a slight rise in temperature, feeling tired, and headache.” “Among these symptoms, a temporary swelling of the lymph nodes may occur, and this is not a dangerous thing, because these glands are part of the body’s immune system, and therefore they swell for a temporary period and then return to normal again, and this matter does not cause fear or anxiety, and does not even require treatment. “In the world of vaccinations, this immune reaction can occur, including, as I mentioned, a temporary swelling of a very small number of lymph nodes behind the ear, and then this swelling decreases within a few days without treatment.”
