SINGAPORE, Aug 17 — A total of 47 “adverse events” have been reported from more than 104,000 doses of the Sinovac-CoronaVac vaccine that have been administered in Singapore as of July 31.

An adverse event for vaccination is any undesirable medical condition that occurs after taking the vaccine, which does not necessarily have a direct link to the treatment. They may be coincidental or related to an underlying or undiagnosed disease. These have to be reported by healthcare providers to HSA.

The percentage of suspected adverse events is on par with HSA’s last safety update in July, when there were 6,606 suspected adverse events that made up 0.12 per cent of administered doses as well. “This is part of the body’s natural response to build immunity against Covid-19. About 66 per cent of the adverse events were reported in females,” it said.

The 0.08 per cent is slightly higher than the 0.06 per cent reported in the previous safety update last month.
