A Kaduna State, Hanatu Tanko, has narrated how she bled from the nose and vomited blood after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine.
The woman, who sought treatment at Ashmed Specialist Hospital, Kaduna, narrated her experience.
She said she took the vaccine at Kaduna South Secretariat, and many linked it to the hospital.
But to distance the hospital from the controversy, the Chief Medical Doctor, Dr Patrick Echobu, addressed a news conference on Thursday.
He explained that the woman was admitted to the hospital six days after she had been vaccinated somewhere else.
The CMD said, “On behalf of Ashmed Specialist Hospital, we want to distance ourselves strongly and condemn the video going around of one of our patients, who presented herself on March 30 claiming to be vomiting blood and having bleeding from the mouth and nose.
“We received her as a patient after she had vaccination six days before presentation in this hospital and unknown to us, she granted somebody an audience which she posted on the media.
“We want to say that we are not connected with the information on the media. I want to let you also know that all the Ashmed Specialist Hospital staff have collected their vaccine.”
He stated that the cause of the vomiting could have been as a result of chronic illnesses like hypertension, upper respiratory tract infection and the likes but said they succeeded in controlling the bleeding after her admission at the hospital.
The CMD reassured residents and the public of the safety of the vaccine and urged them to get vaccinated because it’s safe.
