Coronavirus UK news – Calls for CALM over Pfizer covid vaccine allergy fears, plus latest on tier 3 lockdown in London

EXPERTS are attempting to calm fears over the Covid vaccine after two healthcare workers developed severe allergic reactions.

Both of the workers have a significant history of allergic reactions – to the extent where they need to carry an adrenaline pen with them at all times, NHS England said.

Professor Stephen Powis, national medical director for the NHS in England, said: “Both are recovering well.”

The calls for calm come as it was claimed moving London into Tier 3 in the run up to Christmas could cost around 150,000 key jobs, industry experts warn.

Kate Nicholls, chief exec of UK Hospitality, said closing pubs, restaurants and hotels would deliver a “killer blow” to hundreds of struggling businesses.

The warning came after the capital’s mayor said it could be plunged into the highest tier as early as next week as cases continue to rise.
