    Trypanophobia in the Era of COVID-19 Vaccinations

    Dr Amanda Albert


    After such an unprecedented pandemic, the world at large breathed a collective sigh of relief when
    hailing the advent of the COVID-19 vaccine this year. For those who fear getting a needle in the arm,
    this relief is usually mixed with some anxiety regarding the process.


    Fear or phobia?


    Fear of needles is not uncommon – needles pierce the skin and cause pain, and some postulate that
    avoidance of this pain is an evolutionary instinct. The human race survived by avoiding pain and
    injury with a fear instinct, creating a human predisposition to this fear of needles. However, it is
    when this fear reaches the extreme level of phobia, affecting one’s ability to obtain the vaccine or
    undergo any other medical procedure involving needles, that a problem arises. A fear and a phobia
    are not the same.


    There exists several different medical terms for phobia of various kinds of needles, but the specific
    phobia of medical procedures involving needles is called trypanophobia. It is one of the specific
    phobias listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-V),
    one of the ...

    KUCHING: There is no reason to think that the vaccine will not protect pregnant and breastfeeding women from Covid-19, said associate professor Dr Helmy Hazmi.

    The Public Health Physician of Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (Unimas) also pointed out there was no reason to think that the vaccine will have severe side effects on pregnant and breastfeeding women.  

    “To think that the vaccine will have severe side effects on pregnant and breastfeeding women is not accurate because the mRNA will break down quickly and cleared away after injection, and will not be passed on to the foetus or breast milk.

    “So, it is relatively safe for use in pregnant women and in mothers who are breastfeeding. Pregnant mothers or mothers who breastfeed are advised to discuss the matter with their health care provider. This is especially for those mothers who fall in the high risk group.

    “At the same time, please keep to the key points in reducing the chance of infection – wear mask, practise social distancing, avoid crowded places, practise hand hygiene,” he said when contacted by New Sarawak Tribune on Wednesday.

    Asked whether pregnant women should take the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, he said at ...
