Re: Covid Vaccine: Will you get it?

Did you read the actual article at all? Here let me bold the key part for you

'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.'

So yes, if you're historically allergic to almost everything for your entire life, then perhaps it's not a good idea to get a new vaccine (or any other medicine you've never tried before, such as even over the counter meds).

The key point to actually gain from it is that out of thousands of people who've had it so far only two with a known history of severe allergies got a reaction to it, making it not a concern for most people.
