The Doctor Died From Painkiller After COVID-19 Vaccination, But…
Dr. Hari Harini did indeed die after being injected with the painkiller Diclofenac, after she was vaccinated against COVID-19.
However, her death had nothing to do with the COVID-19 vaccine at all. Here are the facts of her tragic death…
Fact #1 : She Was Vaccinated A Month Earlier
Dr. Hari Harini received her first dose of the Covishield* vaccine on 5 February 2021.
Her husband only injected her with Diclofenac on 5 March 2021 – a month later, when she complained of a fever and body pain.
* Covishield is the brand name of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine manufactured by the Serum Institute of India.
Fact #2 : Fever + Muscle Pain From Vaccine Only Last A Few Days
Fever and muscle pain are your body’s natural initial response to vaccines, and they last only a few days. Generally just a day or two.
Therefore, the fever and muscle pain Dr. Hariharini experienced a month later, had nothing to do with the vaccine.
Fact #3 : She Fell Unconscious Within Hours Of Diclofenac Injection
Dr. Harini started vomiting and fell unconscious within hours of her husband injecting her with Diclofenac.
She was rushed to a nearby hospital for medical attention, and then to a tertiary care hospital, before being brought to the Meenakshi Mission Hospital.
According to Dr. Kannan – the Medical Administrator of Meenakshi Mission Hospital, when she arrived, she was hypoxic, with a Glasgow Coma Score of 3 – the lowest possible score.
They could not revive her, and she passed away on 11 March 2021, after being on the ventilator for 4-5 days.
Fact #4 : Diclofenac Can Cause Severe Anaphylaxis
This side effect is rare, but can quickly turn deadly, especially if it was injected intramuscularly or intravenously infused.
The anaphylactic shock, when it happens, can be counteracted with an intramuscular injection of adrenaline.
Fact #5 : Her Autopsy Confirmed The Anaphylactic Shock
An autopsy was performed on Dr. Hari Harini and the provisional diagnosis was “hypoxic ischaemic encephalopathy due to anaphylactic shock“.
In other words, she suffered from brain damage from a lack of oxygen supply caused by a severe allergic reaction.
Fact #6 : Painkillers Could Dampen Vaccine Efficacy
Vaccines work by tricking your body into thinking that there is a real infection, triggering an immune response that cause “side effects” like injection site pain, fever and muscle aches.
These side effects are really your body’s natural immune response to any infection, and are therefore welcome signs that the vaccines are doing their jobs.
Research have shown that certain painkillers may dampen the body’s response to vaccines. One study even showed that NDAIDs reduce the body’s cytokine and antibody response to an actual COVID-19 infection.
That is likely why the US CDC recently updated its guidance on March 16, 2021, to :
- avoid taking painkillers BEFORE getting vaccinated against COVID-19
- treat post-vaccination fever by drinking plenty of fluids and dressing lightly
- treat pain and discomfort with a cool and wet washcloth, and using or exercising the arm
- take over-the-counter painkillers after COVID-19 vaccination, with your doctor’s advice
Unless you really need to, try to avoid taking any painkiller for the fever or muscle ache.
