According to Israeli news site Ynet, doctors estimate that the number of similar cases could be higher and are questioning if they should administer the second dose of the vaccine to those who suffered facial paralysis.
However, the country's health ministry recommends they should go ahead, but only if the paralysis passes, the report says.
Meanwhile, on Saturday, the Epoch Times reported, citing the data from the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), that 55 people in the United States have died after receiving the Moderna or Pfizer/BioNTech vaccines. In some cases, patients passed away just hours after being injected.
The media outlet reported around 96 life-threatening cases following COVID-19 vaccinations, as well as 24 permanent disabilities, 225 hospitalisations, and 1,388 emergency room visits in the US.
