After receiving the vaccine against covid-19 from the pharmaceutical company Pfizer, a doctor from the General Hospital of Zone 7 of Monclova, Coahuila, presented negative reactions that kept her in intensive care, while the Mexican Institute of Social Security ( IMSS) in the entity denied serious events due to its application.

The internist had seizures and paralysis in her hands. After receiving the biological drug, she was diagnosed with transverse myelitis and is in the intensive care area, being transferred to the High Specialty Medical Unit number 25 in Monterrey, Nuevo León.

Health personnel who receive the coronavirus vaccine are observed for half an hour so that, in case of presenting an adverse reaction, they receive immediate care.

In this regard, the IMSS in Coahuila reported that at the moment 1,609 doses against the SARS-CoV-2 virus have been applied to the same number of workers.

Of this number of inoculated people, only two have had mild allergic reactions.

The first of them corresponds to a specialist from the General Hospital of Zone number 1 who remained under hospital surveillance for an hour: later she was able to return home and until now it was reported that she is in perfect health condition.

The second case of allergy to the anticovid vaccine is that of a worker at the General Hospital of Zone number 7 of Monclova, who for safety reasons was referred to the High Specialty Medical Unit of Nuevo León, her health is good, but the transfer corresponded to the third-level follow-up and care protocol.

It was pointed out that it is false that one doctor has been intubated and that another has registered facial paralysis.

Social Security pointed out that the inoculation work will continue until the more than five thousand doses established for the institute in Coahuila are completed.
