Eric Clapton, who joined Van Morrison on a song voicing opposing government imposed quarantine measures, says he suffered side effects after getting AstraZeneca's Covid vaccine that were severe and prolonged enough that he feared he would never be able to play guitar again. In a letter Clapton sent to an anti-lockdown activist, he wrote that he got his first shot in February and "...straight away had severe reactions which lasted ten days", and described his reactions to the first and second shots as "disastrous", writing, "My hands and feet were either frozen, numb or burning, and pretty much useless for two weeks". He admits that the adverse effects he experienced may have been brought on or amplified by the fact he was diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy.
