Covid presents larger risk of rare neurological issues than vaccines

The risks of developing neurological complications following Covid-19 infection ‘are much greater’ than those associated with Covid-19 vaccinations, according to a UK-based study led by the University of Oxford.

In one of the most extensive population-based studies to examine the risk of developing adverse neurological reactions in response to Covid vaccinations, the researchers found neurological complications are more likely to occur as a result of being infected by Covid-19.

People who received the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine had a very small increased risk of developing two types of neurological conditions, Bell’s palsy and Guillain-Barre syndrome, while those receiving the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccination had an increased risk of haemorrhagic stroke. The risk of these complications is greater following a positive Covid-19 test.
