To the ridiculous rumor spreaders! The two Covid-19 vaccines approved for use in the United States have reassuring safety profiles with no concerning new issues found in data collected from the first month of vaccinations, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Friday.
After administration of 13.8 million doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines to the U.S. population, most reports indicated non-serious side effects of the type that had been expected, such as headaches and fatigue. No deaths have been attributed to the vaccines, the data showed.
The CDC collected data between Dec. 14, 2020 and Jan. 13, 2021 from both an existing national surveillance system for adverse events and its own safety monitoring system established for Covid-19 vaccines.

During that time, 6,994 reports of adverse events after vaccination were recorded in the national surveillance system with 90.8 percent of them classified as non-serious and 9.2 percent as serious.
Rare cases of anaphylaxis, a severe allergic reaction requiring medical attention, were reported with both vaccines at a rate of 4.5 cases per million doses administered, down from the agency's previously reported rate of 5 per million doses administered. The rate of anaphylaxis linked to Covid shots is similar to other vaccines, CDC director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said Friday during the White House Covid-19 Response Team briefing.
"Healthcare providers and vaccine recipients can be reassured about the safety of Pfizer and Moderna Covid-19 vaccines," the CDC said.

When you compare New Zealand to Japan you have complete polar opposites. One has done everything they can to protect their citizens and the other, well not so much so.

Why would your nephew have two flu shots? Or did you mean covid vaccination? A very small percentage of people do have a reaction to the vaccine. Just because you don't do well with the flu vaccination doesn't mean you will have the same result from the covid vaccination. That's like comparing apples to oranges, completely different. Personally I sometimes feel under the weather for about 24 hours after the flu shot, which is normal it means my immune system is working. But this year, nothing. And of course no flu anywhere because everyone is washing their hand's, wearing masks, and social distancing.

Small price to pay to keep everyone safe. I don't see people complaining about having to show a valid passport!

To BURNING BUSH, the film industry probably has the most strict covid prevention standards when filming. On many set's the actors are tested daily and the crew 3 time's a week.

This is so ridiculous, Japan is doing a simulation, and to check to see if the vaccine is safe! So far there are 56 countries that are vaccinating their citizens. And Japan "ordered" enough vaccine for all their citizens. Has Japan not heard that several countries that have have started their vaccine process are having a hard time actually receiving the vaccine. Again Japan too little too late.

It's good to see some people are enthusiastic about this, by saying, leadership, way to go Hiroshima. But this is not leadership. It's a start but man it's way too late. Japan as a whole is way behind other countries in testing. I'll give only one example per capital Canada has done 11 times more testing than Japan. I'm using Canada as an example because they haven't done the best job either, but they have done 11 times a better job. And they have 2 vaccines approved and being used for the last 2 months.

I think it will be quite the opposite of what the headline is asking. Look what happened after the Spanish Flu! It was the roaring twenties, lot's of work, lot's of money, good music, people just wanted to have fun. So people just hang in, stay safe be calm, be kind, wait for your vaccination. The good times are coming.

Canada has done 3 times more tests than Japan and they have less than 1/3 Japan's population!

Could you imagine if they actually started testing like other countries, how high their numbers would go!

Smart, looks like Canada is taking covid 19 seriously, unlike a certain Asian country.

To n1k1 and Zoroto, I'm not going into every detail, one, death is permanent, two I've had many patients that have had strokes and lost limbs because of clots caused by the virus! Hopefully some will get some mobility back, but they will never grow back legs and arms!

I'm insulted by comments saying that truly healthy people don't die from covid! I work in a hospital I have cared for both "healthy" and not so healthy covid patients. Covid doesn't care who it takes or leaves with permanent damage. I have also lost a family member to covid who was very healthy for her age. So people think before you post something you really don't know anything about. And be kind in these terrible times.

Japan has to get serious about testing.

In response to Zichi,
The world was able to develop COVID-19 vaccines so quickly because of years of previous research on related viruses and faster ways to manufacture vaccines, enormous funding that allowed firms to run multiple trials in parallel, and regulators moving more quickly than normal

Posted in: If you are a foreign resident (either permanent, long term or short term) of Japan, do you currently feel safer living here amid the coronavirus, or would you prefer to be in some other country? See in context
Any country like South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Taiwan, where they do "real" testing (for free) and contact tracing. The only reason the numbers are low in Japan is because of the feeble testing they are doing.
