Vaccines: few serious side effects
DECRYPTION – After almost 400,000 injections of Pfizer’s product, the first French follow-up report is very reassuring.
Less than a month after the launch of the French vaccine campaign against Covid, the National Medicines Safety Agency (ANSM) has just published its first pharmacovigilance report. Put in place for all new treatments arriving on the market, this active monitoring of the possible adverse effects of a drug has been strengthened for vaccines against Sars-CoV-2, due to their faster development than ordinary.
The conclusions of this first stage point are rather reassuring. “It is a vaccine for which we finally collected very few undesirable effects compared to the number of people to whom it was injected”, analyze the Dr Joëlle Micallef, head of the Marseille pharmacovigilance center, one of the two regional centers (CRPV) who are referents on the subject in France.
The data processed in the report relate to some 388,730 French people vaccinated between December 27 and January 15, mainly with the Comirnaty vaccine.
