Re: Covid Vaccine: Will you get it?

Apparently, a healthcare worker in Alaska recently had a severe allergic reaction to the Pfizer vaccine despite having no history of allergies. He or she required hospitalization after being administered with the allergy treatment epinephrine. Two similar cases had occurred in the UK.

I'm certainly not try to scare anyone with that or imply that I think people shouldn't be vaccinated, but before receiving the vaccine, I personally would make sure they have an EpiPen on hand.

We already had the 2 UK mentioned - they have an extensive history of allergic reactions in both cases and 'got a rash' - hardly anything really to worry about.

There's always the extremely small chance for reaction with any vaccine (or over the counter meds in fact if you have a history of allergies) and that's why they ALWAYS have staff on standby, be that flu, MMR or any other jab when doing vaccination programmes. She may have not had a history in this case and that's your one in a million or so chance of a reaction right there.
