In case there are still any lingering doubts

 Guillain-Barre Syndrome via DR

"Four British men have developed a crippling disease days after having the AstraZeneca jab, scientists revealed.

Guillain-Barre Syndrome is a potentially life-threatening condition in which the body's immune system breaks down.

The patients, all men, were struck down in Nottingham where around 700,000 people received the vaccine."

"The complication — normally triggered by an infection — usually occurs in around one in 100,000 people in the UK and US.

What is Guillain-Barré syndrome?

Guillain–Barré syndrome is a rare disorder in which the immune system goes into overdrive and the body attack its own nerves.

Common symptoms of the rare condition include weakness and tingling in the limbs.

As patients' conditions worsen, this can lead to parts of the body — or in some cases the whole body — being paralysed.

The syndrome is rare, affecting about one in 100,000 annually in the UK and US.

Fewer than 20,000 cases are diagnosed per year in the US, according to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke.

Doctors say it is often triggered by a viral or bacterial illness, such as Campylobacter jejuni.

There is no cure. Treatment focuses on restoring the nervous system.

It can be fatal if it involves the respiratory muscles.

But doctors in India who also uncovered the link say it was occurring up to 10 times more than expected.

One of the articles published in the journal broke down the cases spotted in Nottingham, which all occurred within ten days of each other.

Symptoms began 11 to 22 days after the first jab and all of the four men were aged between 20 and 57."


Happening in Australia too.



  1. Read your own numbers. G-B happens 1 in 100,000 cases. There have been 4 cases among 700,000 vaccines. That would, for some, indicate that the AstraZeneca vaccine makes the syndrome LESS likely.

  2. If 700K people got Covid presumably there would be a good chance that some of them would get G-B. It does look like our choices are
    a) get the vaccine b) get Covid c) lockdown for ever.
    I know which I prefer.

    1. I've had both vaccines. And I have to say, it's been the only time the NHS has shown the efficiency we all pay for!
