The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued recommendations for those with severe allergic reactions to consider before taking the COVID-19 vaccine.

According to the CDC, reports of some people experiencing anaphylaxis (a severe allergic reaction) have surfaced after they received the COVID-19 vaccine.

A person needing to be treated with an EpiPen or epinephrine, or having to be taken to the hospital after receiving the vaccine is considered to be one such possible adverse reaction, according to the CDC.


According to the CDC: “If you have ever had a severe allergic reaction to any ingredient in a COVID-19 vaccine, the CDC recommends that you should not get that specific vaccine. If you have had a severe allergic reaction to other vaccines or injectable therapies, you should ask your doctor if you should get a COVID-19 vaccine.”

Doses of the vaccine were distributed last week to those designated to be in Phase 1A of the vaccine hierarchy, and shipments of the Moderna vaccine went out across the country on Sunday.

According to CNN’s Jen Christensen, professional allergists such as Dr. Purvi Parikh haven’t seen any out-of-the-ordinary issues with the new vaccine.

“These vaccines are very well tolerated from the data we’ve seen,” Parikh told Christensen.

Parikh suggests consulting a physician if you’re concerned about having an allergic reaction.
