QuoteOthers find the study compelling. "Even last year I was a little bit cautious" about the link between POTS and vaccination, says Tae Chung, a neuromuscular physiatrist who runs the POTS clinic at Johns Hopkins University. "I didn't have quantitative data to back it up, but now I feel like I do." Still, Chung stresses that this paper and other data also suggest COVID-19 vaccines protect against POTS and other Long Covid symptoms, and he remains a strong advocate for vaccination.AN IMMUNE OVERREACTION to SARS-CoV-2 spike protein, which COVID-19 vaccines use to induce protective antibodies, is one possible cause of these symptoms. One theory is that after vaccination some people generate another round of antibodies targeting the first. Those antibodies could function somewhat like spike itself: Spike targets a cell surface protein called the angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) receptor, enabling the virus to enter cells. The rogue antibodies might also bind to ACE2, which helps regulate blood pressure and heart rate, says Bernhard Schieffer, a cardiologist at the University of Marburg. If those antibodies disrupt ACE2 signaling, that could cause the racing heart rates and blood pressure swings seen in POTS.
Quote from: Todd on September 11, 2023, 05:36:33 AMVaccines may not protect against disease brought on by vaccines. That's the important takeaway from the Science article. It is worth remembering that Science is generally considered to be a reliable source of scientific information. Maybe not on GMG, though.It is also worth remembering that pharmaceutical companies were granted liability protection for vaccines they developed and produced, including the ones already pulled from use - eg, the once much-lauded Moderna vaccine. Hopefully, liability protection was sound policy making. I'm sure it was. How could it be otherwise?

Quote from: Spotted Horses on September 11, 2023, 08:26:30 AMThe important takeaway from the Science article is "rare."

Quote from: Pohjolas Daughter on September 11, 2023, 05:55:54 AMLast I read, they are hoping to have a vaccine for the new variant(s?) available for the public by mid-September. Anyone hear any updates?I checked for Covid cases data numbers for my state and was quite shocked. I hadn't checked for a number of months so was quite surprised by how much they had risen. PD

QuoteThere's still another step: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention must sign off. A CDC advisory panel is set to issue recommendations Tuesday on who most needs the updated shots. Vaccinations could begin later this week, and both the COVID-19 and flu shot can be given at the same visit.
