According to the New York Times, the doctor was quoted as saying that a doctor in Boston who was allergic to shellfish had a severe allergic reaction after receiving Moderna’s coronavirus vaccine on Thursday.
According to the New York Times, Dr. Hossein Sadrzadeh, an expert on geriatric oncology at Boston Medical Center, said that he had a severe reaction almost immediately after the vaccination, with dizziness and rapid heartbeat.
This is the first serious response related to the disclosure of the Moderna vaccine, and this is the first week of nationwide promotion.
David Kibbe, a spokesperson for the Boston Medical Center, said in a statement on Friday that Dr. Sadrzadeh “feels that he is experiencing an allergic reaction and is allowed to manage his own potty. He was taken to the emergency room for evaluation, treatment, observation and discharge. He had a good day.”
An official from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said last week that the FDA is investigating five types of allergic reactions that occurred after using Pfizer and BioNTech SE’s COVID-19 vaccine in the United States.
