mRNA COVID vaccines are not associated with appendicitis

Initial concerns suggested a potential link between mRNA COVID-19 vaccines and appendicitis, with Pfizer’s Phase 3 trial indicating slightly higher incidences of appendicitis following vaccination. However, a new study conducted by Denmark’s University of Southern Denmark, utilizing national Danish registry data, found no significant association between the vaccines and appendicitis. This affirms a previous interim analysis also finding an absence of correlation.
