The Covid vaccine is widely being tested in Britain, and health care providers are urging people to avoid using the test as it could lead to complications.
Dr John Geddes, head of emergency medicine at Royal Preston Hospital, said he had seen more than 80 cases of CVD linked to the vaccine in the last month.
“It is important that we keep a close eye on it,” he told the BBC.
“People need to make sure that they do their own tests to make certain that they have not been infected by the virus.”
Geddes said it was possible to get vaccinated if you had no symptoms and had been in contact with someone with symptoms.
“If someone is not experiencing symptoms they may be at risk, but they should have no problems with symptoms,” he said.
Dr Håkan Holm, director of the British Columbia Centre for Disease Control and Prevention, said that as of Friday the coronavirus was still spreading across the state of British Columbia.
Holm said coronaviruses can be found in a range of things.
“They can be inhaled or ingested.
They can be swallowed, swallowed on clothing, in the mouth.
So it’s a broad range of substances, so we need to be vigilant,” he added.”
What we need is to be alert to the fact that people may have had contact with infected people, and that we need people to be aware of the risk of this virus in the community.”
