Six people developed a severe allergic reaction called anaphylaxis after receiving the covid-19 vaccine made by Pfizer and BioNTech, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said on Saturday.
The agency said it is investigating the cause of the allergic reactions and what links the six cases may have. Some of the people are from Alaska, but others are from elsewhere, said Tom Clark, a CDC official who presented data to the Immunization Practices Advisory Committee, or ACIP, whose members met today to vote on another vaccine manufactured by Moderna.
The affected people are all adults under the age of 65, and most were hospitalized, promptly treated and subjected to observation, said Clark. The photos they received were of more than one production line, he added, suggesting that the reactions were not the result of a localized manufacturing problem. The CDC learned of all cases quickly through federal vaccine safety monitoring systems, Clark.
Of the 112,807 vaccinated people registered in the health surveillance security system by Friday, 3,150 reported symptoms after vaccination that made it impossible for them to perform daily or work activities. Most do not require medical care, Clark said, adding that the CDC is studying the reports for more details.
ACIP endorsed the use of the Moderna vaccine in people aged 18 and over on Saturday, with panelists saying the benefits of inoculation outweighed the risks, considering that thousands of deaths occurred daily in the U.S.
UK opened investigation – UK regulators said last week that people with a “significant history” of allergic reactions should not receive the covid-19 vaccine from Pfizer and BioNTech. The recommendation is expected to last as long as local authorities investigate two cases of allergic reaction that occurred on the first day of mass vaccination in the country. The alert could prompt American and European officials to restrict immunization to people with a severe type of allergic reaction. (Dow Jones Newswires).
