New Delhi (Vishvas News): The post going viral on social media claims that the coronavirus vaccine interferes with anesthesia and anesthesia should not be administered till four weeks after taking the coronavirus vaccine. Vishvas News investigated and found that the claim to be fake. It is completely safe to administer anesthesia, local or general, after the coronavirus vaccine, as per experts.

Claim

The post shared on social media reads: “【Vaccination Warning】 Anyone who has been vaccinated against coronavirus is prohibited from taking any type of anesthetic, even local anesthetics or dentist’s anesthetics, because this poses a great danger to the life of the vaccinated person and is highly dangerous. There is a possibility of death.. Therefore, the vaccinated person must wait 4 weeks after the vaccination. If he has a reaction, he can administer anesthetic only 4 weeks after the antibody develops. A Pharmacy’s friend relative was vaccinated two days ago. He went to the dentist yesterday and died immediately after receiving local anesthetics. After reading the warning about the coronavirus vaccination in the vaccine box, we discovered that after the coronavirus vaccine was given, there was a warning not to take anesthetics. Please spread this information to protect your family, relatives, friends and everyone.”

Investigation

Vishvas News started its investigation by contacting Dr. Amit Malviya, MD, Anesthesiologist at AIIMS (All India Institute of Medical Science). He said that the viral claim as false and baseless. Dr. Amit Malviya said, “There is no evidence that anesthesia cannot be administered after taking coronavirus vaccine. Anesthesia has been given in AIIMS to many such patients who have taken one or both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine and till now no side effect has been seen in any patient. It is completely safe to administer anesthesia after taking the vaccine.” He added that: “The same thing has also been said by the American Society of Anesthesiologists.”

Dr. Sanjeev Kumar, the nodal officer of COVID-19 in AIIMS, Patna has also termed the viral claim to be fake. He said that: “It is completely safe to administer anesthesia, local or general, after coronavirus vaccine.”

We also found a notification dated June 13, 2021, by the Malaysian Society of Anaesthesiologists and the College of Anesthesiologists, Academy of Medicine of Malaysia. They have rubbished the claim and termed it as misleading.

As per the notification, there is no justification for postponing surgery in an emergency due to vaccination.

Anesthesia is a drug that is given to the patient to make the patient unconscious before performing the surgery so that he does not remember anything and does not feel any discomfort during the surgery.

When we scanned the profile of the user who shared the viral post on Facebook, we found that the user Anthony P. Krishan is based out of Sri Lanka.

Conclusion

Post claiming coronavirus vaccine interferes with anesthesia is fake. It is completely safe to administer anesthesia, local or general, after the coronavirus vaccine, as per experts.
