Dr. Hossein Sadrzadeh had an allergic reaction after receiving the Moderna Covid-1
A doctor in Boston who was allergic to shellfish had a severe reaction after receiving the Moderna coronavirus vaccine.
Dr. Hossein Sadrzadeh, an elderly oncologist at the Boston Medical Center, was dizzy and had a fast heartbeat after taking a jab on Christmas Eve.
So far, this is the first serious reaction, which has been recorded in the Moderna stabbing that was approved last week and started on Monday.
Federal agencies are investigating at least six patients who suffered allergic reactions after receiving the replacement Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine.
Sadrzadeh also described how his tongue became numb and tingling when his blood pressure dropped from a cold sweat.
Dr. Thadzad told the New York Times: “This is an allergic reaction I encountered while eating shellfish.” “I don’t want anyone to experience that.”
Sadrzadeh quickly used the EpiPen he was carrying with him, just in case he suffered this reaction.
He was rushed to the emergency room and discharged after four hours of examination.
The doctor works at the Boston Medical Center and also received injections there
Sadrzadeh used his EpiPen in an allergic reaction and was taken to a nearby emergency room.
Sadrzad told CBS46: “As a human being and a doctor, my biggest concern is…I have to advertise to people…If people have allergic reactions, people should carry EpiPen with them.” Further investigation.
In a statement, Boston Medical Center spokesperson David Kibbe said that Dr. Sadrzadeh felt he was developing an allergic reaction and was allowed to manage his personal EpiPen.
‘He was taken to the emergency room for evaluation, treatment, observation and discharge. He had a good day today. ”
In the weeks since the vaccine was distributed, there has been almost no allergic reaction to people receiving Pfizer’s BioNTech vaccine.
During Pfizer’s trial phase-44,000 people were examined and half were vaccinated-a small number of allergic reactions were recorded.
But the company said that the rate of people suffering is comparable to the number of people suffering from allergies in the general population, so this is not unusual.
Sadrzadeh’s case is the first known response to a person who was given Moderna injection.
This is the first known case of allergic reaction from Moderna’s coronavirus vaccine.As shown in the picture, the package of the COVID-19 Moderna vaccine was opened in the pharmacy of Boston Medical Center last week
The vaccine is made with similar ingredients, and both require two injections several weeks apart. It is not yet known which component of the coronavirus vaccine may cause severe allergic reactions in some people.
Dr. Peter Marks, head of the FDA’s Center for Biological Evaluation and Research, said: “It is well known that a component in the two vaccines, polyethylene glycol, may be rarely combined with allergic reactions.” Zhou.
“This may be the culprit. This is why we will pay close attention to the launch of Moderna vaccine,” he said.
The manufacturer of the vaccine and the National Institutes of Health are considering clinical trials of the Covid-19 vaccine in very allergic people in an attempt to help understand the rate of allergic reactions and their causes.
Courtney Senechal of RN prepared injections of the Moderna vaccine at the East Boston Community Health Center in East Boston.Medical staff at the East Boston Neighborhood Health Center are believed to be among the first people in Massachusetts to receive the Moderna vaccine
CDC spokesperson Tom Skinner said that information about the new vaccine response will be posted on the website next week.
The agency recommends that people with allergies should still get the vaccine and wait 15 minutes after the injection before leaving the medical center.
What are the possible side effects of Moderna’s shooting?
No dangerous side effects were clearly related to Modern’s shooting in the trial.
However, although there are temporary effects, there are still some shocking.
If you have skin dandruff, your face may become puffy after the injection.
After the injection, the faces of two people with fillers swelled-lips and cheeks.
It turns out that when they were vaccinated with another vaccine, the reaction was the same.
Bell’s palsy (a temporary facial nerve palsy) has no obvious cause, but having herpes or diabetes is a risk factor.
In the trial, three people who received Moderna injections developed Bell’s palsy (one case in the placebo group).
Moderna said this does not appear to be caused by the vaccine, but if the vaccine is approved, it and the FDA will closely monitor more cases.
Anyone who has had an allergic reaction before should be monitored for a total of 30 minutes.
To date, more than 1.1 million vaccines have been injected into people across the United States, and severe allergic reactions are still extremely rare.
Dr. Merin Kuruvilla, an allergist and immunologist at Emory University, told the New York Times: “This should not deter people whose risk has not significantly increased.
So far, thousands of medical staff have received Pfizer’s stabbing. It is hoped that with the two kinds of stabbings on the market now, the vaccination rate will further increase.
Moderna’s vaccine is as small as 100 doses and can be stored in a refrigerator at standard temperature for 30 days.
In contrast, Pfizer provides a vaccination dose of 975 boxes, which must be transported and stored at -94 F (-70 degrees Celsius), and can only be stored at standard refrigerator temperatures for 5 days.
Officials in Texas and Arkansas told Reuters that they hope Moderna will become the main vaccine in rural areas, which often lack ultra-cold storage equipment for full trays of Pfizer vials.
After the plastic on the Pfizer 975 dose tray is opened, the recipient only has 120 hours to use the vaccine.
Jesse Breidenbach, senior executive director of Sanford Health Pharmacy, said: “With Moderna vaccine, logistics will become easier.” The company has nearly 40 hospitals in South Dakota, North Dakota, Minnesota and Iowa.
Breidenbach said: “It will be easier to dispose of it in the refrigerator for 30 days.”
Dermatologist warns that Moderna vaccine can cause swelling of facial fillers
The FDA advisory committee pointed out that lip fillers respond poorly to a coronavirus vaccine-celebrities including Kylie Jenner are at risk.
Experts say that after several trial participants face side effects, anyone who uses cosmetic facial fillers may experience swelling and inflammation.
ABC7 reported yesterday that a dermatologist from California said the reaction was immune.
Dr. Shirley Chi said that the use of steroids and antihistamines can easily treat any side effects, adding: “After vaccination, the immune system that causes inflammation is improved and this is how it should work.
“Therefore, in some areas that you see are not substances that are naturally produced in your body, you will see an immune response.”
Patients who received the Moderna vaccine approved by the regulatory agency last Friday showed swelling in the area where the filler was located.
Two patients had buccal fillings six months before vaccination, while another patient had lip fillings two days after vaccination. Dr. Chi added that these reactions were resolved quickly with the help of medical staff, so this should not prevent those with fillers from suffering from stabs.
