However, so-called health experts are still denying all evidence supporting the possibility that the COVID-19 vaccines can damage the brain. (Related: New study: mRNA COVID-19 vaccines can cause brain diseases.)
"No, there is no solid evidence to back up this claim," said Dr. Kelly Cawcutt, an infectious diseases expert at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, referring to a claim that the COVID-19 vaccine can kill brain cells.
"COVID-19 vaccines do not go into your body and acutely kill brain and heart cells. What matters is how a person's body interacts with the spike protein, either from the infection itself or the vaccine." She added that cases showing how the vaccine has affected the brain are isolated incidents and do not prove that vaccines affect the brains of the general vaccinated public.
Ben Armstrong of The New American thinks otherwise.
"Can the vaccine damage the brain? There's been plenty of evidence that it can," Armstrong said during a recent episode of "The Ben Armstrong Show." He did acknowledge that COVID-19 vaccine-induced brain damage is not as common as its more popular adverse events such as heart inflammation.
Rhoda Wilson, writing for The Expose, noted that she believes many people who took COVID-19 vaccines have suffered from brain damage.
In an article, Wilson noted that not a lot of studies have regarded how the COVID-19 vaccine affects brain health and function. She blamed this on the eagerness of regulatory authorities like the United Kingdom's Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency and the United States' Food and Drugs Administration "to license a product about which information appeared to be lacking."
There's also evidence proving that the mRNA in Pfizer and Moderna's COVID-19 vaccines had been found in the brain, along with other major organs like the heart, lung, liver and testicles.
More studies still need to be done, including one that investigates whether the lipid nanoparticles in the COVID-19 vaccines can carry the mRNA across the blood-brain barrier, the semi-permeable barrier that prevents certain substances in the blood from crossing into the protective fluid covering the central nervous system.
"It is vital to know if this happens because if it does, then all bets are off as to what might happen to the brain," wrote Wilson. If this does happen, she noted that "the neuros, the brain cells, might be marked as foreign by the body's immune system. And as more booster jabs are given, the problem will get worse."
Armstrong said the extent of the damage the vaccine can cause is something that the world will only learn through time. What he is worried about is how this will affect children, who are more vulnerable due to their developing immune systems.
"Some experts, advisors and regulators will tell you that the risks are small, but how can they know that?" said Armstrong. "And what is 'small?' They told us that the blood clotting problems were small."
