Is Your COVID Vaccine Venue Prepared to Handle Rare, Life-Threatening Reactions?

Scientists are still investigating what’s triggering the severe reactions to the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna mRNA vaccines. They suspect the culprit may be polyethylene glycol, or PEG, a component present in both vaccines that has been associated with allergic reactions. People who experience severe reactions shouldn’t get the recommended second dose of the vaccine, the agency said. “Appropriate medical treatment for severe allergic reactions must be immediately available in the event that an acute anaphylactic reaction occurs following administration of an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine,” the site says. No allergic reactions have been reported, according to Kelli Newman, a spokesperson for Columbus Public Health.
