Overall, people who had a severe reaction have recovered well, according to the CDC, although five of them ended up in intensive care. In most cases, the reaction occurred shortly after vaccination. Nine out of ten cases had a history of allergies, especially to drugs. One person had a food allergy. No deaths are known at the CDC.
According to the authority, preliminary figures point to an average of 2.5 severe allergic reactions per million vaccines. According to the CDC, previous inoculations with the Pfizer / BioNTech vaccine in the United States indicated approximately 11 cases per million injections. In addition, the symptoms of allergic reactions to the Modern and Pfizer / BioNTech vaccine would be similar.
The CDC has given new advice to U.S. injection sites based on the figures. For example, there should be better detection of possible allergies, there should be enough allergy medications at home, and people who have an allergic reaction should not receive a second injection.
