COVID vaccine risks for those with ME/CFS

I've been trying to collect data on this topic as I've noticed that an unusual number of ME/CFS and Long COVID patients show up in the vaccine injury support groups.

For some reason, getting the COVID vaccine is like playing Russian roulette (*IF* you have Long COVID or ME/CFS). This is what the data from React19, MEA UK, SolveME, and ANZMES is saying.

React19: Roughly 1 in 5 risk of significant worsening of symptoms in Long COVID patients following COVID vaccination. https://react19.org/react19-patient-led-research-risk-factors-survey-3/

ANZMES: 19.8% were reported as “worsened and not returned to baseline - relapsed”

Solve ME: In their survey, 19% of people with ME/CFS said health worsened after vaccination compared to 4% reported by controls. 9% of ME/CFS reported that their health had improved https://go.solvecfs.org/webmail/192652/227511355/3bb228a4c65aac09a28988cd9a47c13bd69e10d6f6f335ffef493dafcc272f5b

ME Association UK also has survey data, including data on hep B being the trigger blamed for the surveyee's ME/CFS.

Some people do get a lot better after COVID vccntn. However, the risk/benefit does not seem to be there.

One exception is a survey from LongCovidSOS. More than half improved after \/, with less than a fifth reporting that they got worse. Different results are likely due to survey design and how the survey question was phrased. https://longcovidsos.org/_files/ugd/8bd4fe_7301ed588cc44d1483e9fc8df7989a03.pdf?index=true

A Survivor Corps poll (that was cited in a pre-print) found favourable outcomes for vaccination. ~35% reported improvement, ~13% reported that they got worse. However... I can't verify the reliability of the data. (Too many deletions in that group.)

Other groups haven't published their data/analyses yet. PLRC ran a vaccine safety survey. Yale ran a vax study that's been troubled due to recruiting difficulties in the beginning. https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/history/NCT04895189?A=4&B=5&C=merged#StudyPageTop

Randomized controller trials would yield more reliable data. But unless such data is published, patients need to make decisions based on less reliable data. We should apply the pre-cautionary principle and go with where the data leads.

My take: The COVID vaccines simply do not have a good risk/benefit profile in people with chronic illness, especially given other alternatives available. More people need to have the courage to say what needs to be said. There's been enough suffering as it is.

I'm a member of those groups, dont recall seeing the surveys. I have had 3 vaccines and will be getting a booster. I wonder where the surveys are on how many people with ME got worse after covid. I havent had it yet, I'm not risking getting long covid on top of ME, if it doesnt kill me.

You continue to get more unapproved jabs in your body. Where are your smarts and Common Sense? Work with your own immune system as there is So Much for us to take on our own to strengthen the immune systems....the jabs do NOT...

Ever wonder why there were no vaccines for the coronavirus (SARS) outbreak in 2003? Too many red flags and safety concerns. I agree with the OP............it's like playing Russian Roulette with these new vaccines. There was way too much pressure to come up with a vaccine and FAST. Not enough time for proper evaluation of the safety of these vaccines.

Not a risk I'm willing to take.

I think there is a risk for anyone.............not just for people with CFS/ME.

I don't think the negative affects of these new vaccines will every be reportedly properly nor honestly.

Dont be daft, the jabs are approved. "Strengthening the immune system" is difficult, I'm not neglecting that but not relying on it either. Too many people like this https://news.sky.com/story/covid-19...sister-issues-misinformation-warning-12373389

They are NOT approved, FDA would like you to think that, but NOT so. Approval; for effective vaccines need 5-10 yrs and not months as this rushed thru stuff has done...it's $$$$ and many keep dying with the jabs. You believe the govt on this???????
