Yes Gadget, that is interesting.

If I have read and understood the official Guidance to Clinicians properly, link posted to it all, in my Reply #14 (so have a look for yourselves if you wish), the Pfizer vaccine is not to be mixed with another medical treatment?

Mark ,would that include ongoing drugs for heart failure etc.?
So many elderly are on a cocktail of drugs ,I am taking 16 currently and that is modest by comparison to my  husbandís when he was alive.
If so it precludes many many people who can not stop the life saving drugs they are prescribed.
Thanks for your post , will try to digest it later.
I am 83, so not in the first age related group.
Viktoria.

Is this the section that you are refering to , Mark?

Quote
The administration of COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine BNT162b2should be postponed in individuals suffering from acute severe febrile illness.

Individuals receiving anticoagulant therapy or those with a bleeding disorder that would contraindicate intramuscular injection, should not be given the vaccine unless the potential benefit clearly outweighs the risk of administration.

Immunocompromised persons, including individuals receiving immunosuppressant therapy, may have a diminished immune response to the vaccine.No data are available about concomitant use of immunosuppressants.

As with any vaccine, vaccination with COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine BNT162b2may not protect allvaccine recipients.

No data are available on the use of COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine BNT162b2 in persons that have previously received a full or partial vaccine series with another COVID-19 vaccine.

Interaction with other medicinal products and other forms of interaction

No interaction studies have been performed.

Concomitant administration of COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine BNT162b2with other vaccines has not been studied(see section 5.1).

Do not mix COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine BNT162b2with other vaccines/products in the same syringe.

Fertility, pregnancy and lactation

Pregnancy

There are no or limited amount of data from the use of COVID-19 mRNAVaccine BNT162b2.Animal reproductive toxicity studies have not been completed. COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine BNT162b2is not recommended during pregnancy.

For women of childbearing age, pregnancy should be excluded before vaccination. In addition, women of childbearing age should be advised to avoid pregnancy for at least 2 months after their second dose


I would expect the medical staff administering the vaccine to check the medical history/drugs of the patient before injection.

PS

I would think that this is the document that we 'recipients' might read. Too much reading of specialist reports by the non-specialist is dangerous.

You mean all the information given on FaceBook and other forums isn't correct?  ;D ;D ;D

What annoys me is the people who say they won't have it until it is proved 100% safe. How do they expect that proof to come? That strikes me as selfishness, they are quite prepared to sit back and let others take a risk - very slight if you read the scientific stuff. They will also probably be the first to complain if there comes a point when airlines or similar ask for proof of vaccine before allowing people to travel. I'm not saying that it should be mandatory, but if you aren't prepared to have it, don't expect the same as those who do. That's my rant over.  ;)
