Two Studies: COVID-19 Vaccines Trigger Autoimmune Graves’ Disease in Some Female Health Care Workers
A recent published medical report out of Mexico details two cases of healthy, female health care workers who got COVID-19 vaccines and, three days later, developed “thyroid hyperactivity, suppressed thyroid-stimulating hormone, and elevated antithyroid antibodies.” They were both diagnosed with vaccine-induced Graves’ disease.

With 81 percent of Israel’s adult population (and nearly 59 percent of its overall population) fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and the number of reported SARS-CoV-2 infections down to under 20 cases per day, the Israeli government lifted most COVID-19-related restrictions in the country on June 1, 2021.

The U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) has announced that it has begun an early stage Phase 1/2 clinical trial to examining what happens when an adult who is fully vaccinated with one type of COVID-19 vaccine, is given a different booster vaccine from another manufacturer three to four months later.1 Currently, there are three […]
