According to new data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), thousands of people were unable to work or carry out their daily activities, or required the care of a healthcare professional, after have received the new COVID-19 vaccine.
As of December 18, 3,150 people have reported what the agency calls “health impact events” after being vaccinated.
The term is defined as: “unable to perform normal daily activities, unable to work, care required by physician or health care professional”.
As Zachary Stieber of The Epoch Times reports, people reporting negative effects reported them through V-safe, a smartphone app. The tool uses text messages and online surveys to provide personalized checkups and allows users to quickly tell the CDC if they experience any side effects.
The CDC and Pfizer, which produces the vaccine with BioNTech, did not respond to the request for comment.
The information was presented by Dr. Thomas Clark, a CDC epidemiologist, to the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, an independent committee that provides recommendations to the agency, on Saturday.
The CDC said 272,001 doses of the vaccine had been administered as of December 19. This means that most people who have been vaccinated have not experienced any negative effects.
CDC has identified six case reports of anaphylaxis or severe allergic reaction, which occurred after vaccination with the new vaccine, Clark reported. Other case reports were reviewed and determined that they were not anaphylactic.
In an update on Friday, the agency stressed that anyone who has ever had a severe allergic reaction to any ingredient in a COVID-19 vaccine should not receive that vaccine. People with severe allergic reactions to other vaccines should see their doctor for the new vaccine, while those with a history of anaphylaxis unrelated to vaccines “can still get the vaccine.”
“The CDC recommends that people with a history of serious allergic reactions unrelated to vaccines or injectable drugs – such as allergies to food, pets, venom, the environment, or latex – can still get the vaccine. The CDC said.
“People with a history of allergies to oral medications or a family history of severe allergic reactions, or who might have a milder allergy to vaccines (not anaphylaxis) – may also be vaccinated.”
Anyone who suffers from anaphylaxis after receiving the first vaccine should not receive the second vaccine. said the CDC. COVID-19 vaccines are meant to be given in two doses, spaced approximately three weeks apart.
At least five healthcare workers in Alaska have had side effects after receiving the Pfizer vaccine, Anchorage Daily News reported. One of the two adverse reactions at Bartlett Regional Hospital required treatment in the hospital for at least two nights.
An Illinois hospital halted vaccinations after four workers suffered side effects.
Dr Peter Marks, director of the Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, told reporters on a call Thursday evening that the agency was working with the CDC and colleagues in the UK to probe backlashes allergic.
“We’ll look at all the data we can from each of these reactions to determine exactly what happened. And we will also seek to try to understand which components of the vaccine could help to produce them ”. he said.
Noting that he was speculating, Marks said it was known that polyethylene glycol – a component present in both the Pfizer vaccine and that of Moderna that regulators approved earlier today – can be associated, rarely, with allergic reactions.
“So that could be a culprit here. And that is why we will be watching very closely ” he said. “But we just don’t know at this point.”
Both vaccines have “systemic side effects” which are “usually mild”. Said Marks.
They leave after a day. According to the FDA website, the most commonly reported side effects are fatigue, headaches, muscle pain, and chills. The agency said they were leaving after several days.
A volunteer in Pfizer’s final stage clinical trial had an allergic reaction. Two people participating in Moderna’s Phase 3 clinical trial experienced anaphylactic reactions, the company said at a meeting Thursday. But the data showed the benefits outweighed the risk, FDA officials said, as they granted emergency use clearance for the vaccines about seven days apart.
People who receive a COVID-19 vaccine should be monitored for at least 15 minutes after being vaccinated, according to the CDC.
If someone experiences a severe allergic reaction to the COVID-19 vaccine, immunization providers are expected to provide prompt care and call emergency medical services. The person should continue to be monitored in a medical facility for at least several hours.
