The World Health Organization has issued a warning that a vaccine for the coronavirus pandemic is “extremely dangerous”.
It said the vaccine could cause serious side effects, such as seizures and a sharp increase in the risk of liver cancer.
The vaccine could also cause serious complications, such with breathing and skin and eye infections.
“This is not a vaccine that should be given to people who are at high risk,” WHO director-general Margaret Chan said in a statement on Thursday.
The US Food and Drug Administration has been asked to review the safety of the vaccine, which was developed by the National Institutes of Health and is expected to be approved in 2018.
“We are currently assessing the safety and effectiveness of this vaccine and will continue to monitor the development of this important new vaccine,” the agency said in an emailed statement.
“The vaccine is being evaluated to determine if it is safe and effective in combination with existing medicines.”
It’s also been urged to consider whether to keep it on the market after the pandemic ends.
