Mexican Doctor Hospitalized After Taking COVID-19 Vaccine

Mexican officials said they are investigating the case of a 32-year-old female doctor who, after administering the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, was hospitalized.

After having seizures, trouble breathing and a skin rash, the doctor, whose name has not been released, was admitted to the intensive care unit of a public hospital in the northern state of Nuevo Leon.

“The initial diagnosis is encephalomyelitis,” the Health Ministry said in a statement released on Friday night. Encephalomyelitis is an inflammation of the brain and spinal cord.

The ministry added that the doctor had a history of allergic reactions and said that there is no proof from clinical trials that after the implementation of the vaccine, anybody has experienced brain inflammation.

In Mexico, more than 126,500 people have died from COVID-19. On Dec. 24, the nation started supplying to healthcare staff the first batch of COVID-19 vaccines.
