Two health care workers have reaction to vaccine
The unnamed health care worker, an employee at the Bartlett Regional Hospital in Juneau, Alaska, had to be hospitalized overnight for the severe reaction.
The worker, a middle-aged woman, reportedly had no history of allergies and never experienced anaphylaxis. The woman was initially treated with antihistamines, but later received an emergency injection of epinephrine.
The outlet reported that the worker's symptoms abated, but returned, forcing physicians to place her on intravenous epinephrine and took her to the ICU for overnight observation.
U.K. regulators say that people with history of allergic reactions to medicine or food should avoid the COVID-19 vaccine following the reaction.
