Are negative vaccine reactions all in your head?

If you or anyone you know has already received a COVID vaccination you’ve probably heard all of the stories about the side effects that many people report after being jabbed. These vary from minor digestive issues and chills to elevated temperatures and heart rates, with some people even fainting. But are those all medical conditions caused by something in the vaccines or could they be psychosomatic in nature? The latter possibility is being looked at more closely after the CD released the results of a study this week finding that a significant number of people experiencing negative reactions to the vaccine were actually suffering from anxiety at sufficiently high levels to produce a physical response in their bodies. The study looked at patients receiving Johnson & Johnson vaccinations in five states over a one-week period in April. (NBC News)

--- Quote ---    It was anxiety — and not a problem with the shots — that caused reactions in dozens of people at coronavirus vaccine clinics in five states, U.S. health officials have concluded.

    Experts say the clusters detailed Friday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are an example of a phenomenon that’s been chronicled for decades from a variety of different vaccines. Basically, some people get so freaked out by injections that their anxiety spurs a physical reaction.

    “We knew we were going to see this” as mass Covid-19 vaccine clinics were set up around the world, said Dr. Noni MacDonald, a Canadian researcher who has studied similar incidents.

No. They're caused by your immune system reacting to a foreign substance in your tissue. That's the point of the vaccine.

Blaming the victims?

The reactions are real, especially after the 2nd shot.  Can feel like a case of the flu.  That's the vaccine illiciting a repsonse from the immune system, as designed, to create anti-bodies.

My wife had a reaction after her second shot.

Some co-workers have been taking sick days after their second shots.

No big whoop.  News networks are such drama queens.  Axiety and Fear = Ratings.  Is there ever news that's not breaking?
