The Israeli Ministry of Health reported that after receiving anti-Corona virus vaccination, about 13 people had slight facial paralysis.

Several health officials in Israel question about whether the second dose should be given to these individuals or not, while the Ministry of Health recommended that "they will be given the second dose, when the paralysis ends.


One of the citizens who experienced these side effects said to "Yediot Aharonot",  Hebrew newspaper, that "For at least 28 hours, I had facial paralysis."

He added, "I cannot say that the symptoms completely disappeared, but in fact I did not suffer from any other pain".

He said: he is hesitant about receiving the second dose, affirming that this is a rare thing and he does not want people to avoid vaccination".

Galia Rahav, director of the Infectious Diseases Unit at Sheba Medical Center, explained to the Yedioth Ahronoth website that she “recently I met a person who was vaccinated against Corona virus, and he was suffering from facial paralysis then I decided not to give him a second dose.”

Rahav said, "It is true that it can be given according to the Ministry of Health, but I did not feel comfortable to do it."

She continued: "Nobody knows whether this is related to the vaccine or not, and that is why I will refrain from giving a second dose to those who became paralyzed after the first dose."

Israel, which has purchased 8 million doses of the "Pfizer-Biontech" vaccine, 6 million doses of the "Moderna" vaccine, and 10 million doses of the "AstraZeneca" vaccine, seeks to vaccinate the majority of its people by early next spring.
