In February, a study carried out by the Global Covid Vaccine Safety (GCoVS), created in 2021 in the multinational network Global Vaccine Data Network (GVDN), revealed the presence of serious side effects linked to some vaccines against Covid-19. , among them Guillain-Barré syndrome, for which an epidemiological alert was issued in a specific area of ​​Mexico.

The head of the Health Secretariat of the State of Tlaxcala (SESA), Rigoberto Zamudio Meneses, announced on March 5 the implementation of said epidemiological alert because almost 20 cases of Guillain-Barré syndrome were registered in this place.

The measure was taken in response to the unusual increase in cases of Guillain-Barré syndrome in various regions of the area, with a total of 18 people affected by this disease being reported.
Guillain-Barré syndrome is a rare disorder in which the body’s immune system attacks peripheral nerves that can cause paralysis.


Paralysis in Mexicans with Guillain-Barré syndrome
According to the SESA statement, patients diagnosed with Guillain-Barré syndrome presented a variety of symptoms, including gastrointestinal and respiratory manifestations and fever.
In addition, the presence of the Campylobacter jejuni bacteria has been observed, which is known to cause intestinal damage; and in the majority of recorded cases, patients experienced paralysis, increasing the severity of the situation.

Prevention measures against Covid-19
The epidemiological alert issued by the health authorities seeks to inform the population about the connection between these serious side effects and the vaccination process of some doses against COVID-19.

Meanwhile, the population is recommended to continue with prevention measures against COVID-19, maintaining an open dialogue with health professionals to address any concerns or symptoms they may experience after vaccination.

To date, the Ministry of Health (SSA) of the Government of Mexico has not reported on the registration of cases of Guillain-Barré syndrome in any other area of ​​the Mexican Republic, which is why they have not issued an epidemiological alert at the national level.
