Celebrity and model Katie Price’s son Harvey has been rushed to hospital after he suffered what is described apparently a severely dangerous reaction after he got a covid vaccine.
The 18-yr-old disabled young man had his first dose of the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine on Friday afternoon and has sadly ended up being rushed to Great Ormond Street Hospital after developing a high temperature and reportedly ‘shaking uncontrollably’ after getting the jab.
A family friend told The Sun: ‘Katie’s in bits, Harvey only had the jab on Friday but now doctors who know Harvey well are telling her he’s had a bad reaction to it – it can’t be anything else. ‘She’s very worried but is trying to remain calm. It’s dangerous as he hasn’t got cortisol in his body to fight like us.’
Experts say that it’s extremely rare for people to get a severe reaction from the coronavirus vaccine, which has been approved by the vast majority of health boards around the world as being both safe and effective. It’s understood that the most common side-effects of the vaccine are mild flu-like symptoms, a headache, tiredness or soreness at the site of the injection which should pass relatively quickly, however the odd person may experience a more severe reaction.
Harvey Price remains in hospital tonight and is being monitored by medical professionals with his condition said to be stable.
