Vocal Fold Paralysis Following COVID-19 Vaccination


If you’re experiencing symptoms like a sore throat, fever, and headache due to COVID, it’s important to note that after getting vaccinated, you will encounter double the same side effects from the vaccine, which can be life-threatening.

Neurogenic hypomobility, known as vocal fold paresis (VFP), or immobility, known as vocal fold paralysis results from vocal fold denervation secondary to injury to one or both of the recurrent laryngeal nerves. Patients with VFP can present clinically with dysphoniaor dysphagia, or are asymptomatic. Postviral vagal neuropathy has also been described as an etiology of unilateral or bilateral vocal fold paresis which occurs following an upper respiratory infection. Several cases of VFP have been described as consequence of viral infections such as Herpes Zoster, Herpes Simplex, West Nile, and Epstein Barr.

PMC Jan 24, 2022: Vocal fold paresis or paralysis (VFP) may severely affect quality of life due to dysphonia and respiratory distress.

Twenty patients were found to have laryngoscopy-confirmed VFP following COVID-19 vaccination. Vaccinations for Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, and Janssen were reported. Of those reported, 13 patients were female (65.0%) and seven were male (35.0%), with a mean age of 61.8 years.

There are several potential causes of paralysis following a COVID-19 vaccine. We’ll explore each of them in more detail below.

The symptoms of paralysis to be aware of after a COVID-19 vaccine can depend on the cause. Let’s break these down now.

Guillain-Barré syndrome

  • trouble breathing
  • problems with bowel and bladder control
  • changes in heart rate or blood pressure

  • trouble with blinking or making facial expressions
  • drooping of the mouth
  • drooling
  • changes in tearing
  • difficulty eating and drinking
  • changes to your sense of taste
  • increased sensitivity to loud noise

Transverse myelitis

Draft Petition for Vaccine Compensation:

Big relief for getting compensation to all vaccinated citizen suffering from side effects and deaths. Indian Bar Association issued guidelines for filling cases.

Big setback to vaccine companies and Adar Poonawalla, as many citizens started filing cases against Serum Institute and the Central Government had also given its consent for the same.

Citizens are also entitled to get compensation as vaccine was given to them by falsely narrating that the vaccines are completely safe and there are no major or any side effects


Vaccine Injury 100 Crore compensation case :

100 Crore compensation case was filed by Mr. Ayush R. Tiwari in the Metropolitan Magistrate 27th Court at Mulund Mumbai for injury suffered due to the administration of the vaccine, having amongst others, the death causing side effects. The Complainant is the victim of vaccination by cheating, deception, fraud and also by force, by way of illegal vaccine mandates, illegally promulgated by the Accused persons in conspiracy with each other.
