The information, relayed by the STAT site, was communicated during a private call from the CEO of AstraZeneca. One of the coronavirus vaccine volunteers suffers from serious side effects. Originally from the United Kingdom, she is said to have myelitis, a rare inflammation of the spinal cord.
If no diagnosis has been communicated, the volunteer presents “serious neurological symptoms”. Her condition is nevertheless stabilized, she could even be released from the hospital.
Pascal Soriot would have made this conference call to reassure three investors. He recalled that the company was taking the matter seriously.
As a reminder, this is not the first time that the AstraZeneca vaccine test has been suspended. Last July, a man, who had an underlying disease unrelated to the vaccine, also suffered from neurological problems.
