Corfu Hospital.

With paralysis in the lower extremities, fatigue and myalgias, a doctor is being treated at the general hospital of Corfu.

Yesterday, Doctor Spyros Skiadopoulos received the second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

At night he did not feel well as his body weakened and he felt paralysis in the lower extremities and pain in the lower back.

Doctors at the hospital examined Skiadopoulos to find out what led to this medical episode and to give him appropriate treatment.

So far there is no evidence linking the vaccine to the doctor's condition, according to local media.

A few days ago, a nurse on the same island had similar symptoms after receiving the COVID-19 jab.

Her symptoms have now largely subsided.
