No, a vaccinated person cannot pass side effects to other people

The Pfizer vaccine is based on an enriched mRNA protein that was in the original virus, but its only job is to mimic the live virus so that your body has an immune response.

There is an article, posted on Facebook, which makes multiple claims about the supposed dangers of the Pfizer vaccine.

Some of the claims relate to the type of things that can happen if an unvaccinated person comes into contact with a vaccinated person and the “dangers” that come with it.

THE QUESTION

Can someone who has received the Pfizer vaccine pass side effects on to others?

WHAT WE FOUND

When you pass a virus on to another person – through contact or through the air – it is called viral shedding. Depending on the virus, some modes of spread can be more dangerous than others.

The Facebook post claims that viral shedding can occur if you receive the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. But it’s not true. This is because Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine does not contain any live COVID-19 virus.

“Individuals shouldn’t be worried that this might happen,” Gupta said.

The Pfizer vaccine is based on an enriched mRNA protein that was in the original virus, but its only job is to mimic the live virus so that your body has an immune response.

“The only risk that the person who has not received the vaccine probably has is to contract COVID-19,” Elshatory said. “There is absolutely no way to get the virus to shed from a vaccinated patient. There is absolutely no shedding.”

The reason that a vaccinated person could still potentially spread the COVID-19 virus to an unvaccinated person is that there is still a small chance that a vaccinated person could catch COVID-19 in so-called illnesses. “Revolutionary cases”.
