Misleading information about anaesthesia

THE Malaysian Society of Anaesthesiologists and the College of Anaesthesiologists at the Academy of Medicine of Malaysia strongly refute the misleading message circulating on social media about adverse reactions to anaesthesia in individuals who have received the Covid-19 vaccine.

To date, there is no scientific evidence to validate this misinformation. Allowing such misstatements to propagate may impact many vulnerable individuals awaiting anaesthesia for surgical procedures and their inclination to be vaccinated. Hence the need for us to address this with urgency.
