CORONAVIRUS vaccine regulators have warned people with a history of “significant” allergic reactions not have the Pfizer jab.
Two NHS workers yesterday suffered an anaphylactoid reaction to the vaccine, symptoms of which can involve a rash, breathlessness and sometimes a drop in blood pressure.
Crucially this is NOT the same reaction as anaphylaxis, which can be fatal, and both NHS workers are now 100% recovered after seeking treatment, according to reports.
Although the vaccine offers some light at the end of the tunnel, things could get worse before they get better for Londoners, with the capital on the brink of moving into tier 3 lockdown within a matter of days.
With data showing case numbers are continuing to rise in tier 2 London, Prof Kevin Fenton, London regional director for Public Health England, urged the government to put the capital under the strictest tier restrictions.
