Is it true that getting an anaesthetic can kill those who were recently vaccinated against COVID-19?
Take a look at this new viral message, and find out what the FACTS really are!
Claim : Anaesthetic Will Kill People Vaccinated Against COVID-19!
This is the warning that has gone viral on WhatsApp.
* [Vaccination Warning] *
Anyone who receives the coronavirus vaccine is prohibited from taking any type of anaesthetic, even a local anaesthetic or one from the dentist, as this poses an extreme risk to the life of the vaccinated person and is highly dangerous. There is a possibility of death. . Therefore, a vaccinated person must wait four weeks after vaccination and, if he has a reaction, four weeks before he can administer the anesthetic after producing antibodies. A friend of ours runs a pharmacy, and one of their relatives got the vaccine two days ago, went to the dentist yesterday and died immediately after getting a local anesthetic. After reading the warnings about coronavirus vaccination, we found out that there are warnings not to take anaesthetic after taking the vaccine.
Please spread this message to protect your family, relatives, friends and all.
NO! Anaesthetic Won’t Kill People Vaccinated Against COVID-19!
Like 95% of viral messages on COVID-19, this is yet another piece of FAKE NEWS. Here are the facts…
Fact #1 : No Prohibition On ANYTHING After COVID-19 Vaccination
There are NO PROHIBITIONS on ANYTHING after COVID-19 vaccination. You can do anything you want after getting vaccinated against COVID-19.
You can eat and drink anything you want. You can exercise, watch TV, play computer games, and even have sex – everything you did before you received the vaccine.
Similarly, there is no prohibition against receiving an anaesthetic or undertaking a dental procedure, after getting vaccinated against COVID-19.
Please remember – you were only vaccinated against COVID-19, not convicted of a crime!
Fact #2 : COVID-19 Vaccine Won’t Turn Anaesthetic Into Poison
COVID-19 vaccines are just training boot camps for our immune system. Nothing more.
All they do is mimic the SARS-CoV-2 virus, so that your immune system can learn to identify it, and create antibodies against the real virus.
They do NOT react with anything else in your body. They certainly will NOT turn any anaesthetic into poison.
Fact #3 : Receiving Anaesthetic After COVID-19 Vaccination Is Safe
If it is not obvious by now, let us be very clear – there are no warnings against taking anaesthetic after COVID-19 vaccination.
There is no requirement to wait four weeks after COVID-19 vaccination, before it is safe to receive an anaesthetic.
It’s all bullshit. Fake news. Completely made up nonsense.
Fact #4 : No One Died From Getting Anaesthetic After Vaccination
It is impossible to prove what does not exist. But think about it for a minute.
If someone died after receiving an anaesthetic from a dentist, it would have been BIG NEWS, even without COVID-19 vaccination in the picture.
However, there is no such incident. No news report of such a tragedy. Did you read about it? Google it up. It never happened.
So why should you trust what was said in a WhatsApp message, written by an unknown person?
Fact #5 : Anaesthesia Can Dampen COVID-19 Vaccine Efficiency
Research has 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 why anaesthesiologists may ask those who have just received their COVID-19 vaccinations to postpone their surgeries.
Any postponement of your surgery or dental procedure is not because of increased risk of death or injury from the vaccine, but to ensure that you receive the full benefit of the vaccine.
Expert Advice On Anaesthetic + COVID-19 Vaccine
Professor Dr. Marzida Mansor (President of the Malaysian Society of Anaesthesiologists) and Datuk Dr. Jahizah Hassan (President of the College of Anaesthesiologists, Academy of Medicine of Malaysia) issued this statement :
THE Malaysian Society of Anaesthesiologists and the College of Anaesthesiologists at the Academy of Medicine of Malaysia strongly refute the misleading message circulating on social media about adverse reactions to anaesthesia in individuals who have received the Covid-19 vaccine.
To date, there is no scientific evidence to validate this misinformation. Allowing such misstatements to propagate may impact many vulnerable individuals awaiting anaesthesia for surgical procedures and their inclination to be vaccinated. Hence the need for us to address this with urgency.
We may consider asking patients to defer elective, non-urgent surgeries if they are recently vaccinated not because of interactions with anaesthesia but mainly to confer the full benefit of the two doses of vaccine to protect the individual from Covid-19 when the patient comes to the hospital. Additionally, patients may present with post-vaccination related symptoms such as muscle pain or fever which may extend through the perioperative period. Deferment here is to ensure that the side effects of the vaccine are not confused with other side effects related to the operative procedure.
If the surgery is an emergency, recent vaccination should not be a reason to defer surgery.
There are guidelines on rescheduling elective surgeries for patients who are Covid-19 positive and recovering, which is a different issue altogether. These established guidelines allow for maximal recovery after a Covid-19 infection taking into account the severity of the infection.
We encourage patients to seek expert advice from their healthcare professionals who will be able to provide detailed explanations on this matter.
