Vaccine Side-Effects: People Becoming Victims Of Guillain-Barre Syndrome

In India, this vaccine has been named Covishield. Till now its dose has been given to crores of people. Although it has been reported long ago that some people may experience minor side-effects such as fever, fatigue, headache, and muscle aches after taking the vaccine, but two different studies have found shocking claims that have been made.

It is being said that some people taking the Oxford and AstraZeneca vaccines have also been seen to have problems with a rare neurological disorder called Guillain-Barre syndrome. This is a disease related to the nervous system. If this disease spreads throughout the body, then the person can also become paralyzed.
