LONDON — British regulators warned Wednesday that people who have a history of serious allergic reactions shouldn’t receive the new Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine as they investigate two adverse reactions that occurred on the first day of the country’s mass Covid-19 vaccination program.
The U.K.’s Medical and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency is looking into whether the reactions were linked to the vaccine. The two people affected were staff members with the National Health Service who had a history of allergies, and both are recovering. Authorities have not specified what their reactions were.
In the meantime, the regulator has issued a warning for anyone who has had a significant allergic reaction to a vaccine, medicine, or food. That includes anyone who has been told to carry an adrenaline shot or others who have had potentially fatal allergic reactions.
As is common with new vaccines the MHRA have advised on a precautionary basis that people with a significant history of allergic reactions do not receive this vaccination after two people with a history of significant allergic reactions responded adversely yesterday,” Professor Stephen Powis, medical director for the NHS in England, said in a statement. “Both are recovering well.”
In this time of the Covid-19 pandemic, the real heroes are our brave nurses.
