This is the first known case of an allergic reaction from the Moderna coronavirus vaccine, although there have been at least six similar cases reported in the United States related to the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine.
Dr. Hossein Sadrzadeh said: “After the vaccination, I felt tachycardia, but I felt it might be an anxiety, because after learning about Pfizer’s response in the United States, especially Like those who are allergic to shellfish, I feel scared.” To CNN. Tachycardia is a medical term that means fast or irregular heart rhythm.
After checking his vitality, Sadrzad realized that his heart was beating faster.
“My heart rate is 150, my normal heart rate is 75, but… six or seven minutes after the vaccination, my tongue and throat feel a bit tingling and numbness. I have the same allergy to shellfish before. Reaction.”
Thadzad said his blood pressure dropped so low that it could not be detected by a monitor. At that time he decided to use EpiPen, and then the staff rushed him to the emergency room, which was only a few minutes away from the emergency room where he was after receiving the Covid-19 vaccine.
After the allergy, Sadrzad was monitored for more than four hours before he could drive home. He said the response from the medical center staff was “very good.” Boston Medical Center was unable to provide any other details, but did confirm the incident related to Sadrzad.
Sadrzad said: “As a human being and a doctor, what I am most concerned about is…I have to advertise to people…If people have an allergic reaction, people should carry EpiPen with them.” Further.
Ray Jordan, a spokesperson for the biotechnology company, told CNN: “Modena was unable to confirm this incident, but it reported potential adverse events through its internal security reporting system, and Modena is responding to The incident is subject to further investigation.”
Which component of the coronavirus vaccine may cause severe allergic reactions in some people is still unknown. Dr. Peter Marks, head of the FDA’s Center for Biological Evaluation and Research, said in a briefing last week that the agency is studying a compound called polyethylene glycol (PEG), as well as four other possible ingredients in the formulation.
“It is well known that one component in the two vaccines, polyethylene glycol, may be rarely combined with allergic reactions,” Max said. Polyethylene glycol is a compound found in many drugs, including some enteric preparations and laxatives. He said: “This may be the culprit. This is why we will pay close attention to the launch of the Moderna vaccine.”
Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla explained to City Hall on Thursday that in clinical trials, adverse effects of the vaccine were “very rare.” He pointed out that since the vaccine is being distributed to millions of people, adverse events are inevitable. He added that these incidents should not prevent people from being vaccinated, especially those who already have conditions that put them at risk of severe Covid-19.
On Wednesday, Moncef Slaoui, chief scientific adviser of the Warp Speed operation, said that discussions are ongoing between vaccine manufacturers and the National Institutes of Health to consider clinical trials of the Covid-19 vaccine in people with extreme allergies, such as those who must carry. . Feel free to contact them. He said a test may help understand the incidence of allergic reactions and the causes of allergic reactions.
He previously told CNN’s Jake Tapper that the key is to realize that allergic reactions may occur.
Sloy said: “If you prepare, these are events that can be handled.” “And, if there is a specific inducer, we will continue to try to understand what the vaccine is that induces this effect.”
