Worldwide, a number of states have begun immunization campaigns with vaccines from the pharmaceutical companies Pfizer and Moderna. So far, certain side effects of different types have been identified, and the forms manifested range from mild to those that require specialized medical care. In this regard, specialists sound the alarm: allergic reactions caused by the vaccine are rare and usually occur in people with a specific medical history.
right Huffpost, allergic reactions caused by the vaccine have often been identified in people who have experienced certain side effects due to the administration of other vaccines. People who have developed severe reactions (which are defined by the need for specialized medical care) should not be immunized with the second dose of vaccine, the FDA recommends. What should you know about side effects and what do they mean?
The percentage of people who have had allergic reactions to the Pfizer vaccine is low
The US Medicines Agency (FDA) has reported 5 severe allergic reactions to about 128,000 vaccinated people. This proves that the severe effects are quite rare and also they can be easily treated with specialized medical help. Experts point out that people who should seek medical advice before getting vaccinated are those who have suffered from allergic reactions to other vaccines in the past.
Most vaccines cause allergic reactions
Severe allergic reactions were not only found in vaccines developed by Pfizer and Moderna. In fact, most vaccines cause an allergic reaction in a small number of people, says a specialist. Those manifested due to the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines may be in even smaller numbers than other vaccines developed so far, regardless of why they were designed.
If you have reacted to another vaccine in the past, you should seek medical advice before immunizing yourself with anti-Covid vaccines.
Medical experts recommend that people with a history of allergies, especially those who have had reactions to compounds from other vaccine formulas, seek medical advice. The doctor will decide if a person will be able to get the vaccine or, in some cases, patients will be monitored for 30 minutes post-vaccination. Any allergic reaction should be visible in about half an hour.
