KATIE Price’s oldest son Harvey has been rushed to hospital with an apparent reaction to the Covid vaccine after receiving his first dose on Friday.
The ‘brave’ 18-year-old received the Oxford/AstraZeneca jab because of his high risk status as revealed exclusively by The Sun.
And now Harvey has been rushed to London’s Great Ormond Street Hospital leaving his mum “worried to bits”.
Harvey, who sources close to the family say “was shaking uncontrollably,” had a concerning temperature of 39.9 degrees.
He had X-rays in hospital where doctors are said to have confirmed his illness was down to a reaction to the vaccine.
The doctors at GOSH know Harvey and are aware of his complex health needs.
A source close to Katie told The Sun: “Katie’s in bits.
“Harvey only had the jab yesterday and she’s convinced it’s some sort of allergic reaction.
“She can’t think what else it could be.
“Katie’s very worried — she always fears the worst when it comes to Harvey’s health — but is trying to remain calm.
“But like any mum would be, she is beside herself with worry.”
The source added: “It’s dangerous as he hasn’t got cortisol in his body to fight like us.”
The most common Covid vaccine side effects are flu-like symptoms, tiredness and a headache – as the jabs are today hailed as “safe”.
A safety report published by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency found people also suffered with arm pain and fever.
