The report quoted China Economic Daily as saying yesterday that many experts have refuted the rumor and said that from the perspective of immunity, inactivated vaccines are not associated with the risk of pulmonary nodules. The newspaper pointed out that pulmonary nodules have various etiologies, which are mainly divided into nodules caused by pathogens such as viruses, bacteria, mycoplasma, and fungi, and non-infectious nodules such as pneumoconiosis and tumor pulmonary nodules. The Sinovac vaccine is an inactivated vaccine. The development process has caused the virus to be fatal, lose the ability to reproduce and infect, and will not infect the lung tissue to produce nodules.
The newspaper also stated that the Sinovac vaccine was evaluated and approved by the World Health Organization. Pulmonary nodule risk was never mentioned in vaccine-related adverse events. Lung nodules will still be detected in a considerable proportion of people without vaccination every year. The detection rate of pulmonary nodules in normal people is generally between 20% and 40%, and can be as high as 70%.
According to the Central News Agency, in May this year, an open letter from leukemia patients claiming to be from more than 30 provinces, municipalities and autonomous regions in China circulated on the Chinese Internet, accusing them of contracting the disease after being vaccinated against the new crown vaccine. Thousands of cases were counted at that time. The vaccines vaccinated are mainly Sinovac, and the rest include Beijing Bio. In July of this year, Wei Baixing said that the medical reform also published an open letter “more than 1,000 children collectively type 1 diabetes, parents cry for help again!”, in which they accused the children of developing type 1 diabetes after being vaccinated with inactivated vaccines such as Sinovac and Beijing Bio. Diabetes, children have to inject insulin for life, and suffer physically and mentally.
However, medical experts deny that the above-mentioned problems are related to the administration of vaccines. Earlier, Hong Kong media quoted Xu Shuchang, a chair professor of the Department of Respiratory System at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, as saying that there is “no evidence” that the COVID-19 vaccine causes leukemia, and the two are “not related.” The Central News Agency said that the joint prevention and control mechanism of the State Council of China held a press conference on the safety and effectiveness of the domestically produced new crown vaccine in China. Experts emphasized at the meeting that vaccination against the new crown will not cause leukemia and diabetes. These are irresponsible and wrong remarks on the Internet.
