“This case suggests that vulvar aphthous ulcers might be associated with COVID-19 vaccination through a yet undetermined mechanism that requires further investigation,” said an abstract of one such case report published at the National Library of Medicine.
The report said that such ulcers are typically caused by viral infections.
Over all, the Journal of Pediatric & Adolescent Gynecology reported six such cases.
16-Year-Old Girl Develops Vulvar Ulcers After Pfizer Vaccine, Doctors Say ‘Novel’ Side Effect Warrants Further Study ‘Within 24 hours of receiving the vaccine, the girl developed fever, fatigue, myalgias and “sores” in her vaginal area…” https://t.co/BjU6QkN06u

Vaccinations in general are associated with mucosal side effects, and oral ulceration had been noted as a side effect of the Pfizer COVID vaccine, commented the Journal in a previous case of vulvar ulcers in a 14-year old girl.
Doctors had also reported on a 16-year-old girl in October that suffered from fever, pain, muscle aches and genital sores, which they thought could be related to the vaccination she recently had, said The Sun.
After going to the emergency room, and receiving antibiotic treatment, the sores did not improve.
“At the gynecology clinic, it was found that the patient’s lesions were exquisitely painful, resulting in difficulty with urination, defecation, and walking,” said the final case report in the Journal of Pediatric & Adolescent Gynecology reported in April.
The report speculates that the immune stimulation received from vaccination causes the secondary effect of the “vulvar aphthous ulcers,” that sometimes accompany viruses, but said that the exact cause needs to be investigated further.
A simple search of the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) run by the CDC regarding these and other types of vulvar ulcers, resulted in 282 total events as of April 14, reported the Epoch Times.
“While very important in monitoring vaccine safety, VAERS reports alone cannot be used to determine if a vaccine caused or contributed to an adverse event or illness,” the CDC wrote.
