A British woman said she felt like a creature in the sci-fi horror film ‘Alien’ when she broke out in a rash and her skin bubbled up after receiving a COVID-19 vaccination, according to a report.

Susie Forbes, 49, of Lichfield, Staffordshire, suffered disfigurement hours after receiving her first dose of the AstraZeneca-Oxford vaccine on March 18, Triangle News reported.

“I felt like I was in ‘Alien’ because there were bubbles coming out of my arm. It was horrible. My face was huge. I was a monster, ”Forbes told the press service.

“My daughter was texting me begging me to go to the hospital. It destroyed me and destroyed my daughter. I’m going to have to live with this because I have scars on my body, ”she said.

“But for my 19-year-old to text me from work and say, ‘Mum, mum, mama, don’t die,’” added Forbes, who suffers from Guillain-Barré syndrome, an auto-related illness. -immune the body attacks the nerves.

Forbes – who suffered from anaphylactic reactions to penicillin and the anti-disease drug Stemetil – believes she may also have suffered from an extreme reaction to the sting.

The UK Medicines and Health Products Regulatory Agency says around one in 10 people will experience side effects from the vaccination – mainly flu-like symptoms, fatigue and headaches.

According to health officials, people who have allergies that have caused anaphylaxis can still be given the vaccine – but anyone known to be allergic to its ingredients should not get it. It was not clear that Forbes fell into this category.

As of March 28, 455 people had had adverse allergic reactions from around 20 million doses of AstraZeneca-Oxford, making it extremely rare, according to Triangle News.

Forbes takes a variety of medications, including gabapentin and tramadol, to control his GB symptoms, which can include numbness, weakness, and pain.

And at the time of her vaccination, she was taking liquid morphine and codeine for a broken wrist that she had suffered five days earlier.

Forbes said her doctors should have taken her condition into account before she was allowed to be vaccinated.

“Personally, I think they haven’t looked at exactly what I have. I don’t think they should have given it to me until they’ve investigated what you have. They didn’t even ask me the question, ”she said.

“I sat there and said, ‘You know I’m allergic to penicillin and Stemetil and anything like that?’ And she [the doctor] said, “Everything will be fine,” “Forbes said.

“I said, ‘Remember I take liquid morphine and codeine for arm pain too.’ That was it, ”she added. “In less than two hours, a bubble appeared on my wrist. It was as if I was bubbling from my arm. I immediately called the doctors.

She said she started to panic.

” I was afraid. I was panicking. I had no one – just Bonnie and Clyde, my dogs, and they weren’t going to help me, ”Forbes said. “It just kept getting worse. On Saturday my neighbors saw me and they all started to panic because I had started to bloat.

“It was like third degree burns all over my body,” she added.

Forbes said she was given allergy medication and steroids for her skin reaction.

The Midlands and Lancashire Commissioning Support Unit, which manages Forbes’ healthcare provider practice, has not commented on its case to Triangle News.

He simply referred to recent published guidelines on the safety of AstraZeneca jab, which claimed that its benefits far outweighed the risk of potential adverse reactions.
