New Side-Effect To Oxford Vax!

A rare nerve disorder that affects the feet, hands and limbs has been added to the list of possible side effects of the AstraZeneca vaccine by UK regulators.

Guillain-Barré syndrome, which sees the immune system go haywire and start to attack nerve cells, was added by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).

Most people who suffer from the autoimmune disorder make a full recovery, but one in five can be left with long-term problems such as difficulty walking and one in 20 die.

he European Medicines Agency said last month that 833 cases of Guillain-Barre syndrome had been reported worldwide out of 592million doses dished out.

The benefits of the vaccine still far outweigh the risks, regulators have stressed.
