COVID-19 Vaccine Treatment

Why do we care?

  • If the vaccine is safe, why are there people not taking it?
    • Could it be because they are not receiving the treatment they need to bear through their symptoms for this vaccine?
    • Or maybe the vaccine is not as safe as we thought?
  • How can we fix it so everyone can safely take the vaccine?


What kind of medication would help our patients after taking the vaccine?

present the top twenty most common symptoms for the COVID-19 vaccine 4 Bar graphs:

  • Symptoms
  • Gender
  • Age group
  • and Manufacturer


The datasets came from VAERS and CDC:

For this project, there was a lot of data to cleanup and python was used to do the heavy lifting and saved back two data sets:

  • COVID_Reports.csv
  • Vax_count.csv

Next, let R load the data and modifies them to make them suitable in fulfilling the objectives while also making it lighter, and then saves it back to an R data image to make the the application run faster

Finally, the Shiny R application loads the R data image, and loads the application to present the graphs.


Overall Symptom count:

As far as the blue bars indicate, Headache is the most common symptom overall

The most frequent symptom for Females seems to be the same

For males however, Pyrexia and headache are neck in neck.

Interestingly enough, Pyrexia happens most often in children








For the most common symptoms, females ages 12 and older would only need over the counter medication. But males and children under the age of 18 would need treatment for Pyrexia.

Overall life-threatening or critical symptoms:

Dyspnoea seems to be the most common overall

For Children, Pyrexia is the most frequent life- threatening symptom








According to the application, it looks to have similar results for both male and female for most age groups. However, the Pyrexia ends up being the most common critical symptom in children between five and seventeen.

Fatal Symptom count:

COVID-19 is the most common fatal symptom overall

The most common symptom in Young adults (and surprisingly from most age groups) died from was Dyspnoea









The most common symptom causing deaths appears to be the same for all genders across all and most manufacturers. For children under 12, there was only three deaths reported in the data, two of those cases was from Pyrexia and the other one being rash. For adults ages 12 to 50, it is Dyspnoea that needs to be treated. What is ironic about the "COVID-19" symptom being the most common fatal symptom from COVID-19 shots is for the fact that people who got the COVID-19 vaccine are still dying of COVID-19. Either the real fatal symptoms are something else and just labeled as "COVID-19", or the COVID-19 vaccine is not really doing much to protect people against COVID-19.

Overall Count by gender:

All the symptoms experienced are more common in females than males overall

The same goes to critical conditions

But deaths are more common in males than females








It is possible that the reason why there are more death cases in males than females is because the symptoms that males commonly experience tend to be more serious than the symptoms that are most common with females. Therefore males will need stronger medication that would treat the more serious symptoms that males might be experiencing.


Overall Count by Age Group:

The majority of people who experience symptoms from the shot are between ages 50 to 65. While age group 35 to 50 is not far behind.

The top two age groups that have life-threatening experiences are 50 to 65 and 65+.

unsurprisingly, 65+ age group has the highest amount of deaths.









It seems from the overall count, the older people are, the more problematic their symptoms are. For this case, the elderly would need treatment the most since they are the most vulnerable.

Overall Count by Manufacturer:

Symptoms are common from the Moderna shot than other manufacturers.

But, there are more life-threatening cases with the Pfizer shot the the other manufacturers.

Deaths are also more frequent with the Pfizer shot than the other shots








Because the vaccine with the most amount of critical and death cases came from the Pfizer vaccine, people who take the Pfizer vaccine may need a bit more serious treatment. But higher stock of over-the-counter treatment maybe needed for those who took the Moderna shot.
